hi vincent! *waves* i'm glad you updated your blog! am i first to comment? i hope so!! ^___^

hmmm speed - honestly, i never heard of them but i'm glad you're happy about them coming back xD maybe i should check out their songs then?

what music brings back memories... ahh whenever i listen to jay chou songs (the older ones from back in the day) i think of the summer times that my friends and i share. ^___^ it feels really good to remember the good fun memories of summer, especially when you have to go to school ><"

school for american kids start tomorrow... *sigh* but it will be my senior year of high school so hopefully this school year won't be as bad, haha.

memories of a teenager? you're still young though! ^^
ah i don't know what else to say..

At the moment..潘瑋柏-轉機(cantonese version) reminds me of the time i spent in Hong Kong this summer because it was played on the radio all the time. I really miss HK! :(

ah yi said...

it's great to see you update your blog again, Vincent :)

As for songs that bring back memories .. hmm .. I think generally .. all songs that were released a couple years back bring back a lot of memories for me:)

School is starting for me in Vancouver tomorrow=( I'm so lazy, don't wanna go to school :P

Anyways, add oil!! :D
(btw I watched your episode of Identity with Tavia and Moses. GOODJOB on winning the 200,000 :D)

keep it up:) add oil again!! :d

Actually it does bring back a bit of the teen memories...since the first CD I ever bought was their CD...n I rmb the time when I first saw them on the Kohaku, u know...the Red n white song battle in Japan...

Yes, I watched this charity show as well. Four of them changed a lot :)But heard that they may gather together again and will release a single soon. Dunno this is true or not, if it is true, definitely will buy their single. haha~~

i knew SPEED last year.cuz a member one of them, called Uehara Takako(上原多香子),dated with Jin Akanishi(赤西仁).so i knew her and her group has disbanded.

Hi Vincent,

It's great to see you updated your blog, you seems didn't update this blog for around a week time. Are you busy on you career on these days? Hope you'll take good care on yourself and do the best in your career.

I'd watched MR everyday and your performance getting better and attractive. When will your new drama - 红粉商人 on air? Hope can see it soon.

I never know Vincent like to listen to Japanese songs too. When I listen to Westlife, Mariah Carey songs, It brings my memories back since I listen to those songs when I was young, it's really great. I was recently listen to Rihanna, Leona Lewis,Maroon 5 and Christina's songs, they're great too.

Hope can hear more news and info about you Vincent.
Vincent, 加油!!!

Hello there!

Greetings from Malaysia. Just to drop a message and I have something to ask. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of TVB series, but I've been watching MR since my family is watching it. So far, I enjoyed it very much and I was told that you're a newcomer. I searched around the net and found this blog and some videos of yours in Youtube.

I find that you look familiar, not because I saw you on Scoop or E-buzz, but if my memory serves me right, I think I saw you on the tele before. It was a promotional clip for a singing competition or something like that, so basically, that little clip featured one of the competitors from England, talking about his background and preparation towards the competition. I cant remember if that was you or somebody else, so hopefully you could write a brief introduction on how did you get into the business.

Personally I really think that this is a good start so hopefully you will have more acting opportunities in the future to develop your acting skills.

Well, very sorry for the lengthy post and if you have any feedback on my comments, feel free to mail me at:

Hi, it's so nice to see you have time to update your blog ;]

I think the backstreet boys really bring back a lot of 90s moment, even though I wasn't really a fan. An old song of Jay Chou (回到過去)also bring back a lot of memories.
And yeah school starts on the 4th for me, and I didn't even finish my summer work. Darn! Finally Junior Year of HS...I hope I can do my best too.

And congrats on Moonlight Resonance being so successful! The show is so exciting I love it.

Vincent Lai said...

Hey Vincent,

First of all, honestly, I've never heard of SPEED, but I'm happy for them, finally can be together after 8 years. Second, for the memories of being a teenager thing, you're still young, you're still a teenager...just not a normal one, you're a teenager with fame and maybe fortune. -v-

At last, I've just started school yesterday, and I think things are way difficult then 7th grade.

Looking forward to read your next post.

Vincent Lai

To be honest wiv ya...i have never heard of Speed before...probs because of my lack of knowledge in the Japanese music world..lol

TVB Drama Themesongs bring back memories...

Like Return of the Cuckoo
The "blessing" song by Chi Lam Cheung, and also the themesong of "The Awakening Story" by Wong Fei

You're into J-pop?
I'm mostly into K-pop, but im a fan of Tohoshinki, they're J-Pop. U have a video of them on the side <33!

ayaki said...

竟然係你blog 見到speed=]

6Decemberrr said...

I don't know Speed. Im more into western music (from the UK and USA).
That group splitted for 8 years?! They still look very young, they must have started their career when they were teenagers.

When I listen back to songs from bands who have split up for a while now or old songs from the 90's which I haven't listened to for ages! it brings back memories for me too. --> Happy memories :)

ice~~ said...

I crazily addicted to SPEED when I was primary and secondary student!!! nearly buy every SPEED CD~ even it costs me large portion of my pocket money.

In Japan, you can still buy SPEED CD at [book off]! I bought some albums and single there for just 250Yen (the price is so low...sigh)
I like the video so much, but it seems that they only perform on charity show?

you know what, 今井繪里子Eriko (my favourite one) has a deaf son. She devorced recently. i feel so sad to hear about this...

fishy said...

i remember boa, ayumi hamasaki and koda kumi as the first asian artists i knew nd that was like ages ago >< like in yr 2 which was 7 yrs ago XD. reminds me of da crappy days at primary school.

Quinton Lo said...

B said...

Hey Vincent,

Thats a good qs :)
Hmm...i used to be a boyband freak...so Westlife, Backstreet Boys, 5ive, Take That and haha..S Club 7 :P So much more...chinese wise...when i was a lil kid i used to like Leon hehe...then pretty much all chinese music and of course TVB themesongs :)

Ive heard of Speed but have never really listened to their material...maybe i should :)

At the mo I do love Leona and also Delta Goodrem :)

Take care Vincent and keep up the good work!
