Considering I once did a 50 show bar tour in Malaysia, it’s safe to say I have quite a special connection with the country and it’s people.
Still, those 50 shows combined wouldn’t add up to what an amazing experience this past Friday night was. Rightfully so, since it was my first ever solo concert in KL.
Per the organizers request, I performed a mostly Cantonese set with a few English tracks added as well. At the top of the show, I asked if there were any non-Cantonese speakers in the house and surprisingly, no one responded. This meant one of two things. Either everyone spoke Cantonese or the non-speakers didn’t want to be identified. Nonetheless, it sure felt like everyone spoke Cantonese cause even as I performed the Cantonese songs, everyone seemed to rock along cheerfully.
A few things I noticed about the audience that night..
- It was quite an eclectic mix in terms of age. Children. Teens. Adults. Everyone seemed to have a good time!
- To my knowledge, quite a few in attendance had never saw me perform live before or in some cases didn’t even know I did music! They mainly knew me from hosting or acting on TVB. That’s awesome!
- They were extremely lively! They responded to pretty much everything I said into the mic. They rocked along to every song with full on energy. One of the most amazing audiences I’ve ever had the honor of performing for!

I just want to thank everyone who played a part in helping create this amazing experience. G.A.M. for putting the event together. All the sponsors. The concert goers. Those of you who attended the meet and greet before + after the show. Thank you all!
“MC Jin In My Dream” was a perfect name for the event.. it definitely felt like one. Don’t wake me.
