Random thoughts on life in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China

A Mei Zing Girth

The local media has kindly informed me that the A Mei Zing concert by Taiwan pop star 张惠妹, better known as 阿妹 or A Mei took place in Liuzhou Sports Centre as scheduled, on Saturday night. It is reported that a fine time was had by all despite it raining throughout the show.

Of course, this is utterly meaningless. I have been to concerts in Liuzhou where the main acts were booed off stage and the media reported them to be resounding successes. Who knows. I certainly don’t. I wasn’t there.

What was a success, and somewhat unusual is that for once they actually managed to make tickets available and easy to buy. Usually, the organisers hide the tickets away, distribute them among themselves and their families then don’t bother to turn up. A bit like the McDonald Games taking place in London at the moment.

However, from what I can gather, the main talking point in Liuzhou at the moment is not the quality of the show, but the unexpected girth of the star. She seems to have doubled in size since the publicity shots were taken.

I have overheard three separate conversations on this topic in the last 24 hours and today my taxi driver was moved enough to tell me. He hadn’t seen the concert, either.

More A Mei for your money!
