10 Years of Effort...

Have you ever heard of someone who had waited for 10 years just to release a RM20 album? I had...

Ning Jie and I went to watch this mini concert by a singer, Tong Xin, at Bintang Plaza. You all might not know her because she is just a local singer (I think...) in Malaysia. But, what many didn't know is that she was one of those who acted in the NTV7 drama series: Where The Heart Is.

Where The Heart Is...

After realising who she is from the advertisement banner, I was kind of curious and wanted to go and have a look at her. And not forgetting, to hear her voice too. So, we just went there without thinking much.

Tong Xin and the host of the day :)

Well, the place was obviously not crowded! There were some people there but, wasn't very crowded compared to some of the previous mini concerts. The overall view was OK. Tong Xin did a good job and her voice is indeed nice and sweet. Although the situation was kind of harsh towards her because there were not many people there to support her, she was still able to put a sweet smile on her face.

Her clothes are a bit weird but, her voice is sweet...

It was at that time too that the host mentioned that Tong Xin waited for 10 years just to release her first Mandarin album. Honestly, Ning Jie and I were touched and impressed by her effort so, we bought her album to give it a try.

Autographs session!

There is no way I'm not taking a picture with her as a souvenir! Haha...

So, for those who have not heard of her yet, do feel free to listen to her songs. I guess you all wouldn't mind showing some support towards her right? Haha...

The poster and CD...


P/s: The pronounciation of her Chinese name is Tong Xin but, I am not very sure how to write the pinyin so, apologies for that! :)

LynnWei,
Oh no! Now you say it, I realised it might be true. But, it's really true lar.. She is not very young now and this proves that she had waited for quite a long time. Plus, even they lied, who would want to manage a not-young-anymore singer? Just like Gary Chau, he waited for quite a long time too. :)

erm... i am not sure about the fact that this is her first mandarin album. First mandaring album...seems a bit weird... it might be true that she did wait for ten years to release this mandarin album though

Gohyie,
I think she released some other albums before but not in Mandarin.. That's why she said this is her first Mandarin album.
