For you toronto fans

G.E.M. at Pac Mall 5pm to 7pm Today i'm guessing! ^____^
i can't goooooooooooooooooooooooo =(
...Though unable to get her autograph...=(
I got to the mall at 3:30PM whereas the signing was to start at 5 but the line was just so damn long, I ended up waiting around the corner behind some shop where I couldn't see what was going on the stage.
I've got some complaints about the planning about this event though. It was advertised that the signing would take place from 5-7; GEM ended up getting onto the stage at around 5:30, talked with the MCs and answered fan questions for another 15 minutes or so and ended up having to get off the stage at 6:30 or so (she probably got out of the building at like 6:50 with all the people crowding around taking pictures of her afterwards) because she was in a rush (apparently her flight back to HK was later on in the night).
There was actually a concert too yesterday night!
This is how her singing that night sounded: take any of her songs and imagine that exact voice being heard in a concert setting. I'm not saying she lip-synced; rather she sounds exactly
the same as how she does in her recorded songs, including all the high notes. She hit every
note that night. It was an AMAZING
night. I rather liked how they planned this one out compared to the autograph event: after every two songs, the MC would come out and have a little chat with GEM. This allowed her to at least get a chance to settle down in between songs, connect a bit with the audience and just show who she is as a person. Of course, with guests from out-of-town, you've got to give them some sort of gift that represents here and so, GEM gets.....a cup of Starbucks. With warm water instead of coffee.
Was good for laughs.
