Raymond Lam in Kinta City Shopping Centre, Ipoh

*This post was supposed to be published yesterday but due to the stupid connection I had at home aka Streamyx, it had to be delayed til now*


Raymond Lam Fung (林峯) is a famous Hong Kong TVB actor who has acted in numerous top-rated TV series such as the La Femme Desperado, 女人唔易做, and the highly popular Heart of Greed, 溏心風暴, and its sequel of sort, Moonlight Resonance,家好月圆. Besides that, he has dabbed into singing with three records under his belt, the latest entitled Let's Get Wet, which is also the theme of his first ever concert in Hong Kong Coliseum last month.

This afternoon, I went for the promotion of Power Root Premium Gold Ali Cafe at JJ where Raymond was scheduled to appear at 2pm for autograph signing sessions with fans since he was the spokeperson for the coffee beverage. The court was crowded with people way before 2pm as all the Ipoh residents were vying to get a glimpse and an autographed poster of their idols. About 2.30pm, he arrived, with the strong cheers from the crowd.

Look at the crowd!

It was rather chaotic at first when he arrived as all of them pushed towards the stage for a better view of him. A fight was even erupted on my right side with the securities kicking the trouble makers out of the court. I can't really hear what were they - the emcees and Raymond - talked about what with the screamings and all. After the brief chit chat session, Raymond proceeded to signing autographs. There was a brief break during the autograph session where Raymond promoted the product he was representing before continued with the session. The whole meet-the-fans session ended about 4pm.

Raymond greeted fans from Ipoh

He looked more ying (cool) and leng zai (handsome) in person. There is no denying of his popularity with the crowd in the event. I did not have the poster for him to sign (since you need to buy 2 packs of Ali Cafe to get the poster) but a friend of mine Jacky purposely went to buy the products just to have the poster for his autograph.

What I disliked the most is the organisers of the event. While I understand that there must be order to manage the event so that the fans do not go wild, do they need to shout at us? It's so freaking annoying to have that bastard yelled at those who lined up for the autographs since I'm standing so close the them. If anything happens to my eardrums, I'm so gonna sue them.

Finally, it's over.
Saying goodbye, of sort...

Those photos taken at the end of the event are of much better qualities than those at the beginning of the event due to the better standing place I had. I did record a video when he was talking with the emcees. It's an extremely low quality video and there were lots of people pushing behind me.
