28 Jun 2000 -- Raymond Ho in Australia wrote a report from Faye's Melbourne concert, you can read it at Fayenews. Didar wrote this report from the concert in Melbourne.

    "Faye is very very very very good, I don't know how many times I must say, but tonite she's very very very good. her voice is superb" (as always cause concert she put more effort..)

    The Fayenatics in 2nd row.. very good view of Faye. However, Melbourne audience is like Japan audience la.. they like to sit and listen to Faye's music instead of making lots of noises.. you know what I mean? hehe.. It's the same as in USA or Canada concert..

    The clothing and song list is the same as nanjing concert but of course talking part is different.. But Faye didn't wear the "tarzan" clothing in Melbourne. I can't believe Faye wore so less.. it's winter!!! The Fayenatics wearing THICK jackets when watching.. and Faye is on stage with black tube top!! She better take care man..

    Faye wore the latest bell bottom pants & black tube with those white "paper" cuts like overwear instead. We see in newspaper today la.. Also nothing to buy for this concert.. Faye not selling anything outside coliseum this time. But the concert got give out booklet, neon sticks and whistles for FREE. Then of course the Fayenatics just help themselves with the booklet. hehe.

    "Yes, Faye so cute man & more lively now. After the 1st 3 songs, she started talking as usual. she said how're you, how's everyone. hmm should I use mandarin or catonese, so I was shouting mandarin but those shouting cantonese louder mah. then she said in mandarin, i'll speak mandarin, then in cantonese, I speak cantonese, so her conversation is really 1/2 mandarin, 1/2 cantonese. She said she prepared lotsa mandarin songs in mandarin, then she also prepared lotsa cantonese songs in cantonese, so funny."

    "The 2nd talking part, Faye asked if we got anything to talk to her, everyone yelled like hell, hi hi hi. so Faye said we can't go on like that woh, if we continue to say hi hi again & again, then we can go on for the whole nite, nothing to say, we continue singing again ok?

    Then someone yelled, Faye, you're so pretty, Faye immediately replied thank you, so you see she choose what she wants to hear lah."

    "The last costume is the patches of cloth costume, its not white as we see in the online pics, there's 2 patches of blue, shades of pink & then white. her shoe is high heel with "feather" behind on the heel part, very cool man. she did her hair up & Faye looks very elegant, so breathtaking, she's very very beautiful tonite. & she's in extremely good shape man... her voice is remarkable."

    There's no 3rd talking part, she just said thank you to everyone who came for the nite, hope everyone got good time etc, its the same std talk, nothing that's new loh.

    You won't believe how good her voice is tonite & I doubt she trains for her concert at all. she is so lazy yet she sings so well, very good indeed. after coming so far, I'm very satisfied with her performance. The 3 Japanese fans said she sings so much better than the Japan concert.

    "The stage is indeed bare man, nothing at all, just plain empty. But the lighting effect is good & the sound system is good woh. So we got quite clear recording.. Faye didn't have many hairstyle changes as well. She let her hair loose 1st, then tie into a 1/2 little pony tail, then the next one is a full pony tail & the last one is her pony tail up, like having a bun on top but not really. She looks really elegant, I assure you.

    Guess what, she sang a few songs wrong ... as usual she covered up by grinning - but can't bluff us for sure! Oh, back to the songs which she sang wrongly - e.g. 'se-jie', 'tian-shi', 'zhi-mi-bu-hui' & 'an-yong'. The worst is se-jie when she paused & skipped 2 lines. As usual, she turned to smile at us and her band and continued after the next verse. (Faye not perfect la.. lyrics is hard for her to remember but it's always so cute when she forget them.. But as long the overall performance is great then good enough!)

    She wore a stripeless top for the 2nd outfit. As a routine, she had to keep pulling it upwards whenever her back is facing us. Actually, I expected the crowd to be very spontaneous but we couldn't even stand up at all coz people behind would start making noise. I felt so restless coz not used to not dancing at our seats to the fast songs. Sigh ... hopefully the Sydney crowd would be more rowdy.

25 Jun 2000 -- After a half year break from concert shows, Faye staged her full-house concert in Nanjing yesterday.

She has new outfits for the concert. It was a humid day in Nanjing yesterday asthere was a rain just before the concert starts. Though there were still lots of people selling over-priced tickets and fake tickets outside the concert venue, but the organisers and the authorities collaborated well and the concert is a success.

Faye was wiping off her sweats from her face on and off during the concert and finally she told the crowd,"How are you guys feeling? I think I'm melting soon!"  Source: Fayenews

24 Jun 2000 -- Show8 eRadio has an update on Faye's concert in Nanjing. The English translation goes like this.

    Faye is going to have Nanjing concert today. Supposedly Faye should had a rehearsal yesterday, but since there already 6 thousands people want to get in to watch Faye to have rehearsal and suggested not go attend.

    Finally she did attend because she didn't have concert for half year. After 4 songs she had to leave due to people are too crazy. They even trying to climb the wall to get in to the concert hall.

    Also I heard there will be 30 thousands people trying to get in to the concert but the hall can only hold up to 20 thousands people. Kind of dangerous for Faye huh? But Faye are staying at the top floor of the hotel and security are tight and everywhere even in the stairway where the floor Faye stays, so it's quite safe forher.

    Even Ah Foon couldn't get back to the hotel because she forgot her pass. After half an hour of talking with the security guard. She finally can get back to theroom. This news sounds like shocking to me and I hope everythings in this concert goes well. Good luck to Faye and all the crews!

6 Jun 2000 -- According to Oriental Daily, Faye said that she has accepted the cast in "Love Affair in Okinawa" due to the director's sincerity. She is also allowed to use her own feelings to act in the movie plus the fact that she gets the chance to work with Tony Leung and Leslie Chueng and the pay for the movie is satisfactory too.

The director of the movie Chan also said that Faye acted very well in the movie. Same praises to Faye also come from Tony Leung. Faye has said that after the filming ends in Okinawa, she'll have to proceed to South Korea to resume the filming of "2046" directed by Wong Kar Wai. Faye also said that the progress of "2046" has been very slow. More reports can be read in The Sun, Show8 and Apple Daily.  Source: Fayenews

5 Jun 2000 -- Faye has flown to Okinawa again today to resume the filming of "Love Affair in Okinawa" (formerly known as "Holiday Cop") and seems that she is in a very good mood as she talks a little about her love life besides the normal work.

Faye always talked about work when being interviewed by the reporters, especially her relationship in the movie with Leslie, Tony and a Japanese Kado Gaya. There are lots of chasing scenes in the movie between Tony and Leslie as the former is a cop while the latter is a thief, the reporters twisted the question to ask Faye how is it like being "chased" (they meant courting) Faye knew the twist and answered intelligently,"Must see what kind of chasing lah... if it's chasing after me for debt, then not too good."

When asked about her Pepsi advert being compared against Nicholas's Coke's advert as "rivals", Faye said that these might be just promotion, and she does not care much about it. But she added in personal comments saying that this type of promotion is not very smart of them to think of.

When asked if being approached to film an advert with Nicholas, will she accept, she didn't give a direct answer but just said....see how it goes lor.  Source: Fayenews
