Littles things about me-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Happy 2016-------------------------------------------------------------------------

My hobbies -------------------------------------------------------------------------

I enjoy singing, in karaoke or with a band of musicians, particularly Cantonese Operatic singing. I like travelling as well and have been to the States, Canada, Australia, UK, Greece, France, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, and a few cities in the Mainland. I also like driving and playing mahjong.

To pursue my hobbies, I joined a Cantonese Operatic singing group and sometimes go to Shenzhen for a practice session, singing along with a live band of Chinese musicians.

我所屬曲社–瓊花藝苑The fun with Cantonese Operatic singing is that the singer leads the performance. The musicians only echo. You sing one way, they play to echo your sining. You sing in a different way, they play in a different way as well. It's instantaneous and interactive.
