I recently realised that there's a current trend between Hong Kong artiste going on now with Sina's Weibo. What is Weibo?? Well, its similar to Twitter only just a little more interactive. Well, basically, a chinese version of Twitter. I came to know about it through Joey because her facebook got banned....and Twitter was banned for China, so she created one on Weibo. From there, I first realise many other HK singers are there. In fact, almost the whole HK singing community is there. Among them are Kenny Kwan, Vincy, Sherman, Andy Hui, Hacken Lee, Leo Ku, Gigi Leung, Denise Ho, At17, Eric Suen, Stephy Tang, Miriam Yeung, Hins Cheung.....................
From Weibo, you can actually see them communicating with each other which are sometimes really hillarious. For example, sharing thoughts on food, ideas, bickering, arguing, joking with each other etc.
Recently, the trend has extended to not only singers but also industry people such as music producers, lyricist (Wyman Wong registered 2 days ago), composers, managers (Mani) and also TVB artiste!!
Among TVB artiste who were first active users include Myolie, Bosco, Sharon Chan, Leila Tong, Kingdom Yuen, Joe Ma and Bowie Lam. And now the trend has spread to Michael Tse and also most recently Christine Ng. I was lucky enough to be on Weibo when Christine registered (well, actually Sharon helped Christine to register an account coz she probably didn't know how...LOL). Christine started posting messages on Weibo and I randomly commented on one and surprisingly I received a reply from her! Here's how it went:
伍詠薇 回复 @Ivyryc:知道！ (23分钟前)
Christine said she was tired so I said: I'm here again~~~Sleep earlier Miss 5!! Healthy lifestyle...HAHAHA
P.S. She's really cute! And I think I did a typo, but she understood my message anyways...LOL
