Short Talk:

Okay I need some honest opinion here. What do you think of this Chinese dude's singing?

A couple of readers sent it in to me saying like he's so good, but I reckon he's too emo to make it into the big times.

Jay Chou World Tour 2008

It was absolutely mindblowing.

Say whatever you want about him.

Call him overrated, call him an untalented actor, call him a sell-out. At the end of the day, there is absolutely no doubt that Jay Chou is THE biggest star to come out from the Chinese music industry.

His sold out concert at the Stadium Merdeka proves just that.

The funny thing is that I wasn't even supposed to be at the concert. I just happen to be in KL around that time when I found out about the event.

Hotlink, as one of the co-main sponsors of the event, was gracious enough to extend a media pass for me. In return, I'm to cover the event on kennysia.com - which I plan to do so anyway. ;)

Thanks to Hotlink, I attended the Jay Chou World Tour concert in KL as part of the media contingent.

May I just say out of all honesty that the marketing comms people from Maxis are among the nicest I have dealt with. Not saying this just because they gave me free tix to the concert. I have dealt with hundreds of marketing people in my line of work, and the attentiveness of the two girls from Maxis, Catherine and Sham, are easily head and shoulders above the rest.

As if it wasn't good enough that I attended the concert of a music artiste I idolised for so a long time, I was allowed to be in the media pit located right in front of the stage.

By 8:30pm, the spotlights were dimmed one after another. I could literally feel the electricity in the air.

The ground beneath my feet was rumbling. The 26,000 strong crowd were screaming their lungs out in pitch black.

Before long, dancers dressed as terracotta warriors scuttled out on stage for a short opening sequence. A floating platform emerged from beneath the stage. On that platform is the headliner himself - Jay Chou.

Just the mere sight of Jay live in person drove the entire Stadium Merdeka into a wild frenzy.

Dressed in what can only be described as an elaborate piece of purple ancient warrior costume, Jay opened with a fast-paced number Huang Jin Jia (Golden Armor) from the movie soundtrack Curse of the Golden Flower.

Rocking to the sounds of this energetic rock song, the Malaysian fans from the front to the back of the stadium screamed, jumped and danced to their heart's content.

Jay Chou responded by tearing off his coat...

... into something a little lighter.

Some say this outfit makes him look like a Chinese Michael Jackson, and I couldn't agree more. :P

Sadly, we were only allowed to be in the media pit for the first three songs he performed. After my time was up, I was moved to the ticketed section on the other side of the stadium. But not before I caught this incriminating photo.

HOR! WHAT IS THIS?! Lyrics on the TV screen!?

Too bad got lyrics on the screen, he still didn't use it. Quite a few times during the concert, he forgot the lyrics to his own songs and impromised by muttering some nonsensical gibberish.

Blame his lyric writer Fang Wen Shan for writing such cheemology Chinese.

After the first few uptempo songs, Jay followed up with his more soulful melodies like Zhui Hou De Zhan Yi (The Final Battle), Bu Neng Shuo De Mi Mi (Secret) and Tui Hou (uhh... Go-stan?)

A lot of effort was put into the visual presentation of each set of his performance, and I love it.

For Niu Zai Hen Mang (Busy Cowboy), he got his posse to dressed as clowns and Vegas showgirls. They even did a line dance and Jay Chou wiggled his ass on stage.

I thought was damn gay, but the fan girls love it anyway. Jay Chou mah. Anything he does, they'll suck up to it one.

Jay Chou's musical career started because he loves to play the piano, and the audience was treated to see just how good he is at it.

His famed crystal piano made an appearance during his performance of Hei She You Mo (Black Humour). Here, Jay showcased his amazing piano skills, playing Chopin's many pieces before breaking into solos for songs like An Jing (Quiet) and Zui Chang De Dian Ying (The Longest Movie).

It was just him and the piano, and it was all really very romantic. It was so romantic that you could propose to any girl in attendance, and they would willingly accept your hand in marriage.

To watch Jay Chou perform these classics live on the crystal piano is already worth the price of admission itself, but he gave us more.

Chinese theatrics accompanied the performance for Qian Li Zhi Wai (Thousand Miles Away) and Qing Hua Ci (Porcelain Vase), which he sung beautifully like he was singing Chinese opera.

Another kick-ass moment was when a giant red shoe and two ah lian dancers appeared and danced around Jay Chou during his performance of Ye Qu (Evening Melody).

The outfit those two dancers wore reminded me of this one girl who auditioned for Malaysian Dreamgirl. Those who watched the first episode will know which one I'm talking about. ;)

Sexy tango dancers in red for Mi Die Xiang, which is a jazzy lounge-y number.

One of the girls had a HUGE smile on her face when she got to do her tango one-on-one with Jay.

The highlight of the concert for me was when Jay Chou introduced his proteges Nan Quan Ma Ma onto stage. Armed with a musical instrument each, the group held a very cool unplugged session. They interacted with the crowd, talked about Malaysia and performed re-worked versions of some Jay Chou classics like Ren Zhe and Shuang Jie Gun.

This part of the evening was my favourite because it was as intimate as it could get. Definitely one of the rare times I see the singer-songwriter side of this often times very commercialised artiste. He even sang a brilliant Theresa Teng classic Ni Zhen Me Shuo (How Do You Say), dedicated to the older fans in attendance just so they don't feel left out.

The concert lasted for about 2 full hours.

Twice, Jay Chou teased the crowd by exiting the stage and dimming the spotlights, prompting all 26,000 of his fans to yell "ENCORE! ENCORE!" Then suddenly he'll pop out and make everyone cheer like crazy again.

But eventually it was time to draw the concert to a close.

The finale was damn awesome. Jay rapped to Shuang Jie Gun, holding the microphone on one hand and playing with a nunchaku on the other.

For the final few lines of the songs, fireworks boomed and shot up to the skies everytime he sang "HUR!". It was so cool I can't even begin to describe it.

Personally, I thought the concert was exceptionally well done from top to bottom!

I totally enjoyed myself. Jay is always known for being shy and introverted, but at the conert he entertained us with such vigor and intensity. That just goes to show what a talented performer he is.

Some songs he sang at the concert also brought back some memories. During my student days, it was Jay Chou's songs that took me through many uni assignments, many friendships and heartbreaks.

It was surreal yet at the same time nostalgic for me to witness this same person performing live in the flesh right in front of me. It was like somehow he played a part of my life.

For that, I'm really appreciative being given an opportunity to witness Jay Chou live in concert. Never in my life would I expect to be given this chance. Thanks again, Hotlink. ;)

Here's a video I took on snippets of the Jay Chou World Tour concert in KL.

One thing I know for sure, this wouldn't be the last time I attend his concert.

Kenny, as a judge in malaysian dream girl...... please don't sell yourself cheap and look naive like you'd **** a snake. Please don't give a submisive gesture to the other judges(Not looking them in the eye and not sitting up straight as if scared). You should learn about body language it speaks 95% of the message... Honestly the body language you were giving is giving signs of being inferior and submisive. Not very attractive. I know what I am talking about. I want to mind my own buisness but this time I can't stand it!

Unregistered

I have to say, Jay is very talented. That costume is a bit frightful ha ha... But I think it suited the songs. Good stuff Kenny!

Ethnic Protests in Malaysia After Election Losses

By THOMAS FULLER
Published: March 15, 2008
PENANG, Malaysia — Chanting “Long Live the Malays!” several hundred members of Malaysia’s largest ethnic group gathered Friday on this largely Chinese island, defying a police ban on protests and raising communal tensions in the aftermath of sharp electoral losses by the country’s governing party.

Rapid moves by newly elected state governments to abolish some of the long-held privileges of ethnic Malays have challenged the core of Malaysia’s ethnic-based political system and inflamed the sensibilities of Malays, who until the March 8 elections thoroughly dominated politics through the country’s largest party, the United Malays National Organization, known by its initials, U.M.N.O.

The opposition parties that beat U.M.N.O. and its partners in five states say affirmative action should be based on need rather than ethnicity. But the opposition, too, is struggling to contain fissures along ethnic lines as a Chinese opposition party competes with its Malay counterpart.

“We’re living in very sensitive times,” said Tricia Yeoh, director of the Center for Public Policy Studies, an independent research center in Kuala Lumpur, the capital.

The affirmative action program favoring the Malays has been in place for more than three and a half decades and gives Malays everything from discounts on new houses to 30 percent quotas in initial public offerings of companies. It is known as the New Economic Policy.

“The term is very emotive,” Ms. Yeoh said. “I don’t think many people have bothered to investigate the details of the policy itself. But it’s an affirmation of their identity in the country, of their significance and their worth.”

Demonstrators here on Friday, who were dispersed by a large contingent of riot police, chanted “Allah akhbar!” — “God is great!” — and vowed to return for future protests.

“This will continue,” said Nasarudin bin Mat Nor, a 70-year-old retired school teacher who took part in the protest. “If there is no help for the Malays, they will get poorer.”

Malaysians are split as much along religious lines as ethnic, with Muslim Malays governed by a separate legal system. The protest Friday immediately followed Friday prayers at a nearby mosque.

But the election results showed that the Malays themselves are also divided between educated, wealthy and often urban Malays and poorer families living in the countryside.

“U.M.N.O. is going to go through some sort of consolidation,” said Ibrahim Suffian, director of the Merdeka Center, an independent polling agency. “A lot of people are looking for someone to take the fall for the results.”

For the first time since independence from Britain in 1957, the governing coalition has lost control of Malaysia’s largest and wealthiest states, including Penang, Selangor and Perak.

The National Front coalition won 51 percent of the popular vote and just over 60 percent of the seats in the federal Parliament, down from 90 percent in the 2004 elections.

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has vowed to stay on but is coming under increasing pressure to quit. On Friday, Mukhriz Mahathir, the son of the former prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, openly called for Mr. Abdullah to step down.

“The unhappy voters gave a clear message, that is they reject you as head of the government,” Mr. Mukhriz wrote in an open letter to the prime minister.

The loss of Penang, in particular, is a major blow to Mr. Abdullah, whose constituency is based there. He came to power in 2003 promising to sweep away pervasive corruption and make government more accountable. But a series of scandals, rising prices and protests by ethnic Indians over religious freedom and income inequality caused his popularity to plummet.

“He looks pretty vulnerable now,” Mr. Ibrahim said.

Mainstream newspapers here, which are mostly controlled by Mr. Abdullah’s party and its partners, have emphasized squabbling among opposition leaders as they take control of state governments. A swearing-in ceremony Thursday was delayed when the parties could not agree who should fill the top government post in the state of Perak.

“This is a process of coalition forming that is part of democracy,” Tian Chua, the spokesman of the People’s Justice Party told Reuters on Friday. “We are learning it.”

hi TZE FOO! lol. hey i was at the jay chou singapore concert and omfg i was fucking blown away by the whole thing. AWWWWWEEESOME. the feeling he gives you is indescribable. :D:D:D:D:D

thing is, i wasn't even a jay chou fan to begin with. but after i went to his concert, heh, i'm practically married to him.

Unregistered

dear kenny,

i've been reading your blog for several years now, and i have to admit i've always find it entertaining. i've always thought of you as someone unbiased, how you always make yourself seem like someone really nice and worth respecting. however, ever since watching malaysian dreamgirl, i have lost all respect for you, seeing as to how you give shallow comments (for e.g, the sex bomb part) to the contestants. wth was that? do you think saying that would've made you sound 'intellectual'? i think you should go watch malaysian dreamgirl yourself and just observe how the other judges reacted to your comments. it's funny how you can make both you and the judges sound so close, yet on malaysian dreamgirl, i thought it was kinda obvious that all this while, they were just putting up a show. i understand that it's your first time being a judge and you're trying to be or at least sound professional. maybe you think people would want to hear what a 'normal person' would think, but that's not the way. i think it's just very shallow of you. whatever it is, just my five cents worth. good luck! =)

Unregistered

lol.... malaysiandreamgirl thing didnt actually make u more popular.. i tink ppl hate u more eh. >.

anyways, chinese dude u're saying.. his voice actually not bad la. i like his singing better than jay chou. hey, jay chou oso have that EMO look le...

Unregistered

hi, saw you at the media box. But it's been like 3 weeks now since the concert - u won't get away with it if u were reporting for the Press!

Unregistered

Hey dude, keep your style because as you mention before the show, you represent us, the shallow minded, ordinary Ah Beng as a judge for Dream girls, Of course you gotta throw in some low budget humour. Totally enjoyed your act from the newly acquired mobile device ( during office hour too) !

Unregistered

Nice post~ always love Jay Chou's song.. eventough im not chinese ^^ hv been listening to his songs since his 1st album.. =)

Unregistered

his concert is always like.. sold-out! in a matter of days, no? happened to be in exam's week when he performed here in SG.. just a while late and couldn't manage to get any tix anymore.. angry!! was thinking maybe the fanclub members bought up most of the tix.. argh argh argh.. i missed out something spectacular.. and now your blog posts proved to me just that.

Unregistered

despite giving out bad judgement to the girls, we gotta think how hard for him to be a debutant judge. so give him slack. i wouldnt disrespect him for what he said. so chilled out guys.

Unregistered

hey! first time commenting here but yups, never thought that jay would joke and be so entertaining! hehe i thought he'd just sing all the way throughout the concert :D :D :D definitely worth my money. i was one of them who screamed my lungs out :P

After the brilliant interviews that kenny conducted with Alan Sim and the DAP member Chong I rather look forward to Kenny Sia standing for election like Jeff Ooi. Alas, that is no to be the case.

Utusan and Bernama
All leaders in states not controlled by Umno dominance must be careful.

In the aftermath of the Abdullah debacle in GE2008, Utusan Malaysia and Bernama became the two media organisations that stoked political hatred, pitting Malays against non-Malays.

Both the media groups framed Lim Guan Eng for a mention of May 13, which the new Penang CM didn't say. I knew as I stood behind him during the press interview. And the CM's press secretary confirmed the same.

We queried Khalid Mohd, the Group Editor-in-Chief of Utusan. He passed the buck to Bernama, saying that his paper had used the national news agency's dispatch, though his reporters were present during Guan Eng's interview.

We took Khalid at face value and queried Yong Soo Heong, the Editor-in-Chief of Bernama. He faxed us this letter yesterday, which I reproduce verbatim:


March 14, 2008

YAB Sdra Lim Guan Eng
Chief Minister of Penang
28th Fl, Komtar
10502 Penang

Dear YAB,

On behalf of my colleagues in BERNAMA, I would like to congratulate your team and you for the recent victory in Penang.

I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise for the sloppy editing in the news story of March 12, 2008, which we mistakenly quoted you as commenting on the May 13 incident as well. The inclusion of the fact was intended to give background on the establishment of the NEP in 1971. Nevertheless, upon a thorough review, the inclusion of that fact along with your quote may have been inappropriate.

As we move forward, I would like to ensure you of BERNAMA's co-operation for your newly-formed government and shall always endeavour to help you promote the well-being of Penang and its people.

Yours sincerely,

YONG SOO HEONG
Editor-in-Chief


The Utusan-Bernama ruckus started when Guan Eng announced all government procurements in Penang will be through open tender -- something that the NEP did not address and went on to create cronies and entrench corruption in the system.

I hope the next time Umno leaders took to the streets to stoke people's sentiments along racial lines, you know who is to blame.

jay chou deserves the fame & success he has today. i think his success is based on pure talents..i mean honestly he doesnt really have a handsome face. i would say it's his very distinct style that makes him stand out from other chinese singers :)

It's a month now. I'm still high when looking back at those clips from YouTube.

Kenny, the pictures you posted are really nice. Even the vid you recorded are better than most of the other ones posted on YouTube. Guess having a media pass is the trick huh.

Jay is really good. Just like you, there aren't many other Chinese/Taiwanese musics or singers I like (that is, except Faye Wong and Jacky Cheung).

Thanks for sharing a good post. :)

...am contemplating whether to chase his other World Tour in China...
