It [the stills below] was during the song “Bored” which I think was the 3rd song of the night [New Year’s Eve/Day 1998/1999 concert at HK Coliseum], so if you go to that song, when Faye [Wong (王菲)] walks around the perimeter of the stage (it is actually a travellator that moves around during her “Dream Person” and “Dream Walk” songs). But from memory, the editing of “Bored” doesn’t give a clear view of us shaking hands with Faye but you see her take our teddies back to centre stage and puts them down.
I was completely shocked when I saw myself on the DVD, could not believe my luck and would have to be my biggest claim to fame!
To be honest, I was so excited and had so much adrenalin at the time that it was all a big blur! So the video helps me remember what actually happened! I remember more about the moments leading to it, my friend and I looking at each other saying “oh my god, she’s coming over, should we go? will we get into trouble? should we wait?!?!” In a split second my legs decided to make a run for it and I think I actually left my friend up in our aisle seats (very convenient) and she had to catch up to me! The security guard was still sitting down in the aisle on the bottom step just enjoying the show and I actually leapt over him to get to the fencing – he was more surprised to see me than Faye!
It really was a moment of sheer spontaneity! I’m very happy that I didn’t let that opportunity pass me by!
