15 Aug 2000 -- Faye has held her performance in Ningbo now, and here is a report from Didar, fast as always with sharing her views :).

    Faye held her concert in Ningbo, China. As usual, any type of natural disaster must GIVE WAY to the Sky queen.. When Faye arrived in Ningbo on Aug 10th, the rain already stopped... the weather was good until the concert is over then start to rain again!! The concert was a success as the sky give FACE to Faye.. ahha

    "Before Faye's concert, she had interviews with the reporters, although no one asked about her and Nic's relationship but they did asked questions about her views on relationships. Faye did answer openly. Reporters asked her if her song NO REGRETS can still match her views on love! She said, "this is old news, as i get older, my views on love has change also.

    Now i have no regrets to love but won't be obsessed with it!" She said she knows what she is doing.

    During her concert, there were 40 000 people. However outside the stadium there were more than 10 000 of fans, some of them came as a whole family!! Although they can't see Faye but they can still listen to radio to enjoy Faye's performance!

    In this concert, Faye can be really close to the audiences because there were more fans than estimated. The organizers can only add more chairs there for the seats are more and more closer to the stage. Therefore during Encore the people there were really afraid that the glow sticks thrown by fans to stage might hurt Faye!! Luckily none of them hit Faye.

    The clothing for Ningbo is the same as in Australia, you know Faye where got time get new concert clothings... she is so busy. But clothing not that important.. what is important is the concert not cancelled and 50 000 fans came to support Faye. China fans really crazy over Faye.. she is that popular! Her schedule is so busy that they can only fit one night..

    Faye will head down to beijing soon and also to na ying's hometown.. Faye go back beijing for work la..
