Somehow my converted mp4 ext to wmv files can't be played properly on windows media maker else I would have combined all clips into one video for convenient view.
If all goes well, Steven will hold a mini concert tour in 5 or more cities (including HK) between July and August. So stay tune as to which city. The interviewer seems so high and so giggly -- wonder if she is that way with other interviewees, or just elated to interview Steven?

Q: These days you’ve been making the rounds on the radio stations, back to being a singer, how do you feel?
A: Well, first off, at the radio stations there were many new faces, secondly, those that I know from way back, we all grew up together so not just them have grown older but me too, so we met again it’s like an alumni reunion.
Q: Compare to how it was like for you before as singer, what’s the biggest difference now?
A: In the past, when I went to the radio stations to promote my songs, I was very reserved. And when I talked (pause) I recall once a Warner Music colleague, a publicity agent called Simon – after the promotional event of my first album and we went back to the office for meeting, he said to me: Can you not look as if you are in sales?
Q: (laugh) Did you shake hands with people, and whatnot?
A: Because before I entered the industry, I was in sales, so I was used to be extremely polite, greeted them and then handed them my business card. But singers don’t hand out business cards. But that kind of attitude was – more smooth talk and more worldly. So they told me not to act too much like salesperson.
Q: And then?
A: And then I didn’t dare to open my mouth. Didn’t know what to say. So..55, 555. became more reserved.
Q: So this time you sell “An Understanding”, have you become more casual?
A: I’ve always been casual ma!
Q: I mean like not that scared anymore?
A: What’s there to be afraid anymore? It’s been almost 20 years now.
Q: Don’t know – like back to being a singer?
A: That I’m not afraid.

A: My mindset is that I’m more seasoned, moreover, I’m no that young anymore.
Q: But your looks is youthful
A: Only the appearance – eh eh.. can’t be too vain (tn: lol!) The face may deceive people but actually not that young anymore, I'm well aware of it.
Q: Sam jiu lah (comprehend lah)
A: Having experienced so much, whether the past heart knots over family or over work, they’ve all gone away.
Q: So now you’re just busy recording your new album. So in July you decide to open your very first big local concert since entering the music industry.
A: mini, siu yin (tn: small scale)
Q: ok, xiu yin concert. But where do you get the time to do it? After all, this is your first time.
A: Still have to do it. If all goes well, in July (tn: hk concert) Actually, after that will have a mini concert tour in at least 5 and more cities.
Q: so actually a series of mini concerts?
A: Will announce the details later. The tour plan is still in the preparation stage, maybe 5 or more cities. I hope it is possible because in late August –early September I have to go to Beijing for filming.
