The Corrs

I was pleasantly surprised to find a few old friends "spamming" my chatterbox. I knew these people from my earlier involvement with The Corrs Fan Club. Of course, yours truly was the oldest fan there. The group had lots of fun, gatherings, jamming in the studio and even performing on stage in Sungei Wang! Yes, I was one of the lead singers and had my share of about 15 minutes of fame. LOL ...

That's me in blue, centre. Pic is kept small as to protect the identity of the rest of the members!

Of course, that was back in 2000. Finally in 2001, my dream came true. The Corrs staged a concert here and at that time, I was helping out Warner Music. I helped to design and word The Corrs Dream Collection inlay and even had a hand in choosing the tracks. For that, I was rewarded with a special uncut copy of the inlay, several copies of The Corrs Dream Collection and a meetup with The Corrs themselves.

Just look at all the stuff I was holding, all signed by them!

Yes, those were the days indeed. I'm still keeping all those stuff, maybe I will part with them one fine day (sell them on ebay!) But till then, these are all good memories. I will never forget that day when I met The Corrs as it was also the same time my life would change for another reason. Yes, good memories indeed.
