The Voice of China; Mi Gu Fan Meet; LOL; OPUS 2 Shenzhen; CUG; Hannah!

Jay had a spate of activities and events last week!
I'm breathless just keeping up with him!

The Voice Of China press conference 18 June 2015

Jay enjoyed his experience with the other mentors on The Voice Of China.
He was concerned about what sort of facial expression and actions he should adopt, being well aware that the cameras are focused on him.
Harlem Yu and him also bantered about working out and who had the better physique.
The judges appear to have good chemistry both on and off stage.
Can't wait to watch the show proper!

Mi Gu Music Fan Meet on 19 June 2015

Jay seldom holds fan meets so this was indeed a very special event in Shenzhen, sponsored by China Mobile's subsidiary media arm, Migu.

The opening performance by the a troupe of utterly adorable 6 to 8-year-olds, dancing to Jay's Extra Large Shoes was so captivating that I had to replay it a few!
Jay was similarly impressed and told the emcee that they danced better than him!
The leader of the troupe was 8 years old and took the mike confidently to thank Jay for giving them an opportunity to be on the same stage as him. She also wished him and Baby Chou well. :)
Jay then asked the emcee to consider recruiting her as she spoke so well!
As the kids ran off the stage, Jay could not help but quip how nice it would be to have a whole brood of talented children like that! ;)

Other highlights were Jay and Cindy's performance of What's Wrong and Cindy also sang one of her new songs.

There were games for lucky fans and Jay ended by singing Handwritten Past.

Love his checquerboard jacket!

Cuteness overload!


League Of Legends Taiwan press conference on 20 June 2015

It seems our Jay has been playing League Of Legends, an online game since last year. And when he does, he uses his Aiyo Not Bad phrase as his name!

Some highlights:

Jay was introduced to LOL by his hairstylist in May 2014, initially going to internet cafes to play, which his mother was not happy about. He eventually set up his own computer to play at home, thus allowing him the freedom to play for as long as he liked. He was also quite cock-a-hoop that this was one endorsement which resulted from his participation in the game and gleefully told his Mum: it's not everybody who can get a chance to play and become a spokesperson!

He plays almost every day, and especially likes to do so after a concert as a way to unwind. If he plays well, he will chat with other players online. At times, some of the more alert players will realise who he is and ask him questions like "What will you wear to the Golden Melody Awards?", to which he sportingly replied and reminded them to watch the show, but he would not be holding a!
There was also another instance when a player mistook him for Jacky Cheung, but Jay was not perturbed.
He also joked that he often encourages other players not to give up easily and likens himself to a 'spiritual guide'!
And when he encounters younger players online at a late hour, he would tell them to go to sleep or their father might cut off their internet connection!
He had been asked to form a team with other artistes who play LOL but decided against it as he does not think he is a good enough player.

He also talked about his in-game name. (I am not sure what the name is. When I find out, I'll update here.)
When asked if he would play LOL with his Baby Chou, he was quick to reply that children should obey their parents and study hard instead of spending too much time on the computer. LOL is his addiction, not the kid's. ;)

Vid of press conference:

He is also writing a song for LOL, and should be performing it in September at a LOL event. 
His new album's release will be pushed to 2016.

All Stars concert with CUG on 21 June 2015

Jay and CUG, comprising Xiao Mai, Xue Gao and Ah Ken, performed at a concert.


I do not have vids yet. Will update when available.

On a separate note, it was nice to see Hannah visiting Jay in Shanghai on the set of The Voice Of China on 22 June 2015!
Na Ying also prepared a nice gift for Baby Chou, saying it was suitable whatever the gender. ;)
