Astro Wah Lai Toi Drama Award for 2005

I've just attended The Astro Drama Award for Year 2005 held at Sunway Pyramid Convention Center. I would say that it's definitely a great experience to be there, not to mention that we were sitting on the 4th row from the stage just now. (Thanks to Yin for the tickets. We look forward for more such tickets!).

All the Hong Kong drama stars were being seated at the front row. It followed by our local artists at the second row. We (my girlfriend and I) were actually at a very close distance from them. In that kind of situation, we have some kind of weird feeling when we were so near to those artists that we normally see in TV, especially for people like me that don't always go for concerts. Guess you understand what I mean.

Everything during the night was great except for an auntie who took photo with those Hong Kong artists. I know that it's OK for her to take photo with them. But, guess what, she asked Chi Lam (Julian Cheung) to stand up and take photo for her with Charmaine Sheh. That didn't end there. She then asked Ron Ng to take another photo. I can see that they felt so ashamed when they had stood up in front of their fans to take photo for her with other artists.

Something that I was wondering all the while, what they normally do (in a live show) when we see advertisements in TV? For the very first time to attend such kind of live show, I learned that they are actually giving some information to us (the audience) on what's coming up next and what we should do. And that's why we can see in TV that everything can go so smoothly during the show.

I must admit that I really had a great time there as part of the event. Watching such on my own eyes is so much better than through TV!

    It was even worse than last year. If I'm the HK star, I'd be embarassed to attend such an event. Except Roger Kwok, Chi Lam and Myolie Wu, others are not professional and selamba only.

    I guess Astro's photo gallery will provide better photos. For the moment, it has not been published. Patience!



    I think they came because of the agreement between Astro and TVB. Also, they definitely have to come over to see their fans, since Malaysia is actually one of the main buyers of those Hong Kong series.

    Since you were there, you should go over for the red carpet! Too bad you missed it.

    Hey, I'm nothing. Why would the audience take picture with me?
