I was truly amazed with the receipt of this album. It is the first press release in 1990. Even the CD was made in Japan. This is not a reissue copy but truly came into market since 1990. What makes this album being the most gorgeous among all, is autographed and the previous collector take extreme care on it. The surface of jewel case still as new, without scratches. Yes, is without scratches!
I am really glad to own it in my collection. haha

Today, received notice from post office regarding to an undelivered postal article, whereby it's her very first release, "Sammi". What more to credit about it is, Autographed album. This rare and autographed basically add in greater value to my collection. I cant wait to get on hand.
Hmm..... practically, i got most of her releases by now, however missing.... ... 5 or 6 albums? In fact full length albums that missing out are -- Holiday, 十誡 and 鄭秀文的快樂迷宮. Phew, what a crazy collector i am. In other words, I got all of her Warner's full length album releases.
Let's count the compilation, where 是時候@不要新舊對照35首, and Mi Century登峰造極世紀精選, which am waiting chances to grab a copy too. In 2009, a themed year which consists of "Faith", "Hope", & "Love" title to her work. Basically, i obtained Faith album, while not Hope album. In some extend it's a book accompany EP.
Oh well, catch up with me soon.

I particularly love the album artwork and design, as only 3 colors can be found here. Black, White and Grey. The whole album doesn't weight much, but outstanding packaging design. Thumbs up for this. Lets look at the packaging.
for this album. All photos are nice captured, and there's insert where
transparent paper replaced, makes the booklet scores well.
Main plug, 世說心語 expressing her feeling for the last four years. Although first play of it, to be honest i wasn't like it as the tune kind of weird to me. However, something changed my mind, recently i found this music piece is unique and catchy too, which fight my first thought.
Practically, i love the second song, 追 the most. As most of you knew I'm keen to relax and active songs. This song represent my feeling too. The music and lyric work well, and easily memorize the tune.
當冬夜漸暖 , a soft ballad, which a song brings great feeling. I could say one of the best soft ballad Stefanie Sun has in her 11 albums.
When the speakers played 是時候, i was like "huh", and feel bored to it. Again, miracle happened after 3rd and 4th play. I can't imagine how much i love this song. The chorus part, "我多恨自己輕易地放開手 以為能承受....." Oh No, that's the greatest part. Eventually, this song makes the first song i would reckon to all.
Hidden track 11, named "11" as well, amazed me dramatically. The energized song boost up my feeling and easily catches the music piece too. Tell you what, the 2nd song i love comes after 是時候. haha
Overall, i would say such a worth buy! All songs are awesome!

I myself love this album not because of the songs, but how she deliver messages to her music listeners. Seems like most songs has its own message. For example, 八月號 the song reflects how much we know about Fiona. Controversial in media had made up lots of story behind the truth.
The main plug 唇印, romantic and the beats which step by step bring the song to peak. A relaxing song though. Well, i shall stop here. Will update again when i receive the album. By the way i will catch up those i missed earlier.
The cover looks weird. The lion hair doesn't match to her face at all. But its the concept of the album whereby, August the birth month of Fiona, plus the zodiac sign, Leo thus she came out the theme song and the album artwork.

Love & Fan Fan is the second album of Christine Fan that I own in my collection. I bought this album because of the hit song; 最重要的決定which sang by most of the girls surround me. Well, I myself pretty much love it too. The packaging used hard cardboard and designed in box set style, however not really a box set. The album consists of 10 great songs. First song 蜂蜜 (jazz), you are putting yourself in a harmonic ballroom. You feel like lifting yourself up for a dance.
最重要的決定 although second plug of the album, but ya the lyrics are so meaningful. It is an inner feeling of Fan Fan towards her decision being married to Blackie Chen on May 2011. It is truly a song catches your heart and I guarantee you would listen and even more sing the song for the second play. The main plug, 暮光 written and composed by her confidante Tina Wang, a song that easy to memorize and pleasant to hear too. 雙雙, the song composed by Christine, herself, a good recommendation to you too.
Beside love song, some energetic songs are wrapped in the album too. Well, have a glance of the album.
Album cover and photos & lyrics booklet with autograph
To be honest, I prefer her previous album, F One than this one. The previous songs choice is better than this album. In comparison of雙雙 and灰色的彩虹 which composed by Christine, I would say灰色的彩虹 wins. Anyhow, every recording album has its selling points.
32cm x 32 cm hard cover which makes the album stronger from any impact, but still there's a limit to handle it. Among my vinyl sized recording album, this album featured the most stunning design than others. A puzzle can be found inside of it, which stands the selling point of this limited 2000 copies worldwide. A cd with extra canto song and a poster type lyrics leaflet. And last, not the least is the huge HOCC autograph on the front cover.
In terms of songs. the very first time i in touch with it is the 詩與胡. Really catchy piece of music. First play, then 2nd play i started to sing. It's a song which catches and the tune stick firmly in ur mind. 無名, second song i love in the album. In fact it's a canto song that released by HOCC years back. Mandarin version has a great lyrics and blend with music greatly.
愛麗絲夢遊仙境症候群, a free and relax song which makes a good play after your hard day work. It releases your mind, and the piano part truly release my tension of the day. 菇菇歌, at first i thought is a soft ballet, didn't expect comes out a rock song, and so it amazed me. Overall its a good album to purchase. You wont regret from every single penny u spend on.

The Green album contains 2 songs only, however both are written brilliantly. The album is made to concept Green whereby both songs start with green word, as well the manufacturing of the album used recycle materials.
青蔥 has meaningful lyrics, no doubt both do. A soft tangy song which again you can’t let it go from your speakers.
What more i can say is, if you are a fans of HOCC, i reckon by now you have own it. For those music lovers and cd collectors, remember this is a great deal. Get it while u can.
