  1. Can someone post the track titles in Mandarin please?

    Have anyone of you bought the album?

  2. Kim, the Mandarin titles have been added.

  3. Thanks feifan. Have you bought the album?

  4. Hi, Kim. No, I haven’t. I think I have most of the songs on the CDs. I’ve also seen most of the clips on the DVD. But I’m thinking of getting it for the quality of the videos, which is probably a whole lot better than the ones we’re seeing in YouTube, Tudou, etc.

  5. I’m so annoyed, i searched EVERYwhere for mp3s of some of those remixes, and there most of them are, all together on this collection. Darn my impatience! XD

    I really wanna pick this up – i have most of the songs, but obviously not all of them on a hard store-bought copy. I’m used to buying Japanese CDs (which run $30+ for one-cd albums) so I’m loving the price at Yesasia too!

  6. The chinese title of “True Story of Faye Wong” is a play on the same movie title by Wong Kar Wai, starring the late Leslie Cheung. It is was ground breaking hit for both director and actor.

  7. Tell us more about the film. Sounds good!

    I finally got around to buying “Ashes of Time (Redux),” which I’ve heard so much about but have never seen. The cast and crew are amazing: WKW, Tony (Chiu Wai), Brigitte, Doyle — four from the CKE film — as well as Leslie, Carina, Jacky, Tony (Ka Fai), and Maggie. They should’ve tried to work Faye into Ashes, too. I haven’t watched the film yet, but I’m wondering if it’s going to be as good as CKE.

    According to Tarantino, CKE was supposedly filmed as a break from the gruelling demands of Ashes.

  8. I really can’t remember what “The true story of ah fei” is about, I just remember even my mum who’s super mainstream loved it.
