*drools over your Yunho icon*

Nicholas Tse is one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to Chinese music and HK films ^^;; He's quite charismatic on screen (he was such a cutie in New Police Story and very vicious in Invisible Target). Oh you know what, I have heard of Denise Ho by name since she's mentioned a lot on the net but haven't had the opportunity to listen to her songs. Do you have any recommendations?
joyciel: yunhocelljoyciel on January 12th, 2008 07:12 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you asked lol. I like this song alot, it's composed by her: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RREOHeyKKRI

This one is also really good, actually this is THE song that got me into her:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW8JguOC_tQ this song has really touching lyrics.

And this is more upbeat and energetic, also composed by her:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENhUlPaiE5E

This is...I'm not sure what type of song it is but I love it. Once again, composed by her. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ElIRf2uTmI&feature=related and I love the MV.

She has a bunch of songs that I love. And I think she's one of the best singers out there. If you like any of the songs I can upload them for you =D!

You've got long list of fandoms, and even though I won't claim that I'm obsessed over some of them, we have quite alot of common ones :) Like Jay Chou, LeeHom, JJ Lin, Jolin Tsai, Nakashima Mika, Harrry Potter, Heroes etc ♥

Do you visit Malaysia often? I live in Singapore, so we're pretty close neighbours, I suppose? :D I looked through your public entries, and they're really interesting, so I'm adding you! Hope that's ok. It's ok if you don't though :)
Vash-chanvash_chan on January 12th, 2008 03:34 pm (UTC)
Ahaha yeah the list of fandoms is long, isn't it? ^_^;; I'm ashamed XD BTW I just added you to my f-list as well.

The last time I visited Malaysia was in 2006 and I was planning on going back again last Sept but had to start a new job instead. Hopefully I'll go back there and visit Singapore this year. Singapore I've not visited for a very long time (I went back in 1993) and I've not spoken to my cousins over there for ages.

Listened to my Mum's old cassettes
lol, i feel for you man. my parents always played chinese music in the car so now i can sing a whole bunch of old pop songs, it's like a guilty pleasure now =.=;

haha you do have a pretty big fandom, just like me! X-Japan, Luna Sea, Kagrra, Malice Mizer are some of my favorite jrock bands too ^^. have you heard of vidoll or phantasmagoria?
Vash-chanvash_chan on January 12th, 2008 11:30 pm (UTC)
LOL. It does sound like a guilty pleasure, doesn't it? Andy Lau's cover of Shanghai Grand has been stuck in my head over the years thanks to the constant listening of old cassettes ^^;;

Yeah I've heard of Phantasmagoria though I've heard of Vidoll only by name. Can't remember if I heard one of Vidoll's songs on an internet radio stations. I've been rather out of the loop with the latest goings on in Jrock that it's made me confused on who is who because there are so many Jrock bands around ^^;;
junji_stori: micky parisjunji_stori on January 13th, 2008 03:24 am (UTC)
lol, definitely, some of those songs are really good too. hmm i'm trying to figure out what does Shanghai Grand translates to in Chinese. da shang hai? haha, sounds familiar, but i'll need you to sing it for me or else i'll figure it out XP

i know, there has been a lot of new bands, or new albums coming up these days. It's hard to keep track of things. like that superband with gackt, yoshiki, miyavi and someone else, i haven't been able to keep track of them since their debut. lol, i wonder what they're up to now o_0

Any other information about yourself as a person: I've just finished my application to transfer to the University of Hawaii to study Mandarin Chinese!

How did you get into Cpop?: A friend recommended that I check out Hana-Kimi...things went crazy from there
What about Cpop appeals you?: First, I really love the language! Also, a lot of Chinese artists, even pop stars, incorporate traditional scales and instruments in their music. I dig that. Lastly, it seems like Taiwanese stars are more laid-back and "real" than other Asian idols...
How long have you liked Cpop?: For about a year now
What kind of Cpop appeals the most to you? (dialect (canto/mandarin/etc), style (pop/rock/etc): I pretty much exclusively listen to Taiwanese artists, but I like all styles! Pop, rock, hip-hop, ballads...I like specific artists more than whole genres.
Who are some of your favorite artists? Wang Leehom is amazing, JJ Lin, A-Mei, Huang Yida, S.H.E (beautiful voices, beautiful girls), Fahrenheit (cute dorks), a little bit of Wilber Pan...Jay Chou...

What other things do you like? (such as fandom, other kinds of music, etc): Reading tabloid rumors about Taiwan idols like Danson Tang, Miyavi (amazing Japanese solo artist), learning Mandarin and Japanese, animation (more cartoons and Disney than anime), Project Runway...I was really into 'Heroes' first season, but the second was disappointing :P
What do you like to do in your spare time? (hobbies?): Drawing, singing, starting fanfics I never finish
Friending policy?: If we have similar interests, I usually friend back
What do you like to see on your friends page?: Fangirling, humor, interesting discussions, whatever
What don't you like to see on your friends page?: Homophobia

Other additional comments about yourself, your love of Cpop, etc: I make a lot of posts about Taiwanese pop culture lately, and I feel like I have very few people to enjoy them...also I'd really love to learn about other cpop artists! Hi!
