雲頂開騷 關菊英馬浚偉組姊弟檔搵銀
Steven Ma and Susanna Ma have successfully concluded their 3-day concert (8/21-8/23) at Genting Highlands in Malaysia; the audiences' response was overwhelming.  As the 2nd night of the concert (Friday) happened on the designated "Malaysian national day of mourning" commemorating the arrival of the MH17 crash victims' remains in Kuala Lumpur, a moment of silence observance lasting a minute was held at the end of the concert, after which the duo belted out "Tomorrow will be better"《明天會更好》as encouragement to their audience.

When on stage, Steven and Susanna called out to their audience for a moment of silence, the audience instantly quieted down, Steven said: "I saw how earlier the audience was in such a happy mood but suddenly became saddened. Also when reading the news everyday, there are so many reports of tragedy so I want to release some positive energy into the world, thus for this Genting Highlands concert I selected these songs《爸士》,《漫步人生路》and《明天會更好》for their positive messages."    

This Genting Highlands concert was Steven and Susanna's first time collaboration. Because Steven knows how to hype up the atmosphere plus his quick responses, the audience became more and more fervent.  Steven said: "We are both very happy with our collaboration. We want to work together again, and hope to have the opportunity next year to film a series as an older sister and younger brother, respectively."

Susanna said that she honestly did not expect Steven with his gentleman looks is so playful in private, regardless on stage or backstage, where Steven is, laughter's there too. She said: "Steven is a very happy, very sunshine person but when he talks about serious subjects he comes across very mature and his words have substance. His age and his behavior are totally uncorrelated " Susanna was very happy that their 3-day concert sold out every night but was sorry for those who made the special trip to Genting Highlands for the last show but couldn't get in because it was sold out.

  1. Tamaya, my English not so good, so im writing it in Mandarin and mix mix ya..haha..等待了几个月的日子终于到来了,那种心情真的不懂如何形容,真的好兴奋!可能是他启发了我对人生的改观和态度。第一首歌“想飞”掀起了一时的轰动。。他真的好帅,超有型。无论是唱慢歌或快歌都那么的好听,尤其是唱那首我等待已久的歌“李香兰”,哇哈!我整个人都淘醉在他的歌声中,连我手上那的手机都无发动了。。呆了。。马仔真的好会说话,当然嘛, 他当过司仪, 说话难不倒他。在说话的过程, 带点幽默, 又有点调皮, 很逗人开心。 我发觉他唱歌时比较喜欢靠左边, 应该是有来自香港的朋有来支持他吧, 不过, 还好, 我有我朋友sponsor 我的营光棒, 每当他走向右边时, 我就立刻举起我的营光棒,他就看过来, 爽死我了!当他谈起去年的一部戏 ‘守业者’时, 因为要介绍下一首歌 “天意”, 我就大声的喊:“潘家杨!”, 他就说: 不如直接叫我“三少”好了, 哈哈 !还有, 我发觉现场大多数是uncle and auntie only, 大家都比较静,没那么轰动, 没有我想像中的轟动。。 我等的等,我手中的礼物还没给他, 等待的是一个好机会, 我告诉Amy当他走向右边时, 我们马上就冲上去给他。可是当我们跑向前面时, 他好专注的唱歌, 好像没看见我们似的, 后来我们就退后几步, 刚好VVIP有two empty seat, we sat down and manage to get few snapshot of him, but my hand was shaking because he so handsome, just can't believe he was in front of me. After that he ran down to shake hand with the audience, at last I managed to pass my gift to him but no chance shake his hand le.. Overall, I enjoyed the show very much, but I hate and kicking myself for not attending his 2nd day show because one day show is not enough!! He told audience that he will come to Malaysia next year and will collaborated with Susanna in a drama. After the show, we still don't want to go back, we waited waited outside the hall, waiting for him to come out, at last he come out with casual wear stripe shirt with beige/white colour pant walking very cutely to the van. We (with Amy) met one senior lady, ran together up to his hotel which got to take 5 times escalator..We just tried, but we think he will reach the hotel first than us.. We are too late, when we reached there, we waited and asked around people there, the staff there said he already went in to the hotel room.. haiz!!

    2. Hi, Hazel here.
      Wendy, just wanted to let you know that on the first night, Steven focused more to his left (our right) and on the second day, he was focused more to his right (our left). I think it's more consideration on his part for all his fans who may have bought tickets for more than one show, so that hopefully everyone may get a good view of him.

  3. Hi everyone. Irene here. Ya I oso hav no chance to shake hands with him.I attended the 2nd night show where they observed 1 minute silence for the MH17 victims. The show was simply great and fantastic. Steven is so gorgeous n handsome. Susanna is pretty n she sang really well. It's definitely worth the effort to travel all the way there. 大收获。unfortunately my mobile phone camera not working well. All the shots taken were so blur.

    1. Irene, so what was your favorite Steven's song of the night? Which of his costumes did you like -- glittering silver or subdued black?

      Delete
    2. Hazel here. I think Steven looks awfully good in everything he wears. He is one of the few people who can actually pull off any color well. I was was actually hoping to see him in his flamingo pink suit, too bad he didn't.

    1. Wendy, why wouldn't he like your comment? Up to you whether to share with him or not. If it stresses you out then don't. haha! On a different topic, I didn't know one needs experience to chase an idol. lol! Just do whatever makes you happy, I guess.

    2. Tamaya, I forgot to tell you that both nights I saw Steven leaving the venue, I decided not to approach him but just look at him from a distance. I did not even wave at him so as not to attract any attention to him. After a hard night's work, I think he would very much like to retire to his room to rest. I think Steven was appreciative of the privacy because on the second night he saw me and he turned and gave one of his killer-smiles.

    3. Hazel, Steven did say his fans are quite reserved and thoughtful in behavior but I'm sure he would have understood had you approached him to say 'hi' and to let him know how much you had enjoyed his concert and his work, after all you might not have another chance to 'talk' to him again.

      Delete
    4. Tamaya, I debated with myself whether I should approach him. Then I thought, if I died at his feet cos my heart failed me, then he would have to call the ambulance on me!

  13. Hi, this is Nikki01 from Malaysia. I attended the 3rd night of the concert. Very glad that I went. Steven was perfectly handsome. My husband and I liked his lei heong lan song the best. It is not a surprise that he won his 44th competition with that song. That song could bring out the singer in him.

    2. For the Atlantic City concert, I too liked his lei heong lan the best.

  14. Yes, Tamaya. I have not been to Asian Fanatics for a long time but lately did check out on Cocoon there although I did not write. It's the first time for me to see Steven in person but still quite far on stage except the short moment when he came down the stage to shake hands. The crowd swelled up so fast around and in front of him when he came down from the far end of the stage so it was also difficult to catch a good glimpse of him except for a short moment when he got to the opposite end where I was. But that short moment indeed I could 'verify'' his good look.
