The title of this showcase is derived from one of Mint’s song, 依靠(Yi Kao) which translates into ‘Support’ in this case.
Parking was quite a problem, but we risked it by parking along the roads and hoping the ‘Pontianak‘ won’t come. Hur.
I really liked that the tickets were mailed to me, saving me all the hassle.
When the BF and I arrived, we were each given Rocher roses from Rocher-Creations, along with a lyrics book and customised Mint bear.
The crowd was coming in, it was a full house and a very good sign!
Mint very nicely reserved a table for us at the front. I was seated with William, Calvin, HP and Ying Zi.
Mint & The Band was introducing ten of her new songs, including 我的便当、泪不停不停的流、Hug Me Tight、梦中情人、我全故意、爱的人、依靠、星言、抉择至我、玩具国王。
The showcase comprises of 10 mandarin songs written and composed by Mint Leong, performed and sang to the public for the first time. Out of these 10, 2 of the songs were composed with the help of Mint’s good friends: Goh Yong Wei(我的便当 aka Lunchbox) & Angela Lee( 泪不停不停的流 )
Though 我的便当 is composed by Yong Wei, but he didn’t perform that day. He was in charge of the videos and helping out at the front desk. The rest of the other 9 songs are all composed by Mint herself!
The Master Music producer is Won Tin Loong, who owns All About Eve Bar. The other music producers are Mint Band, where the band consists of 4 members – (from left to right) Desmond the guitarist, Ethan on keyboard, Mint the lead singer and Wagner the drummer.
The concert kicked off with the upbeat song 我的便当.
Mint really has quite a number of supporters! Keep in mind that this is the second day of the concert and still a full turnout.
One of my favourite songs is 梦中情人, a rather jazzy number.
A duet – I think it was 我全故意.
Followed by Hug Me Tight, you can watch it here:
The next song 爱的人, though sung in mandarin, it really sounded more like a Hokkien song. Some of us even sang the song out in Hokkien. Listen to it here:
She even had the band on screen, nice.
That’s Calvin and William. If you noticed what was in his hand, you would have known what was coming next.
Mint’s performance of 依靠 was very touching. The video here:
William surprised her with a bouquet of flowers and Desmond even played jealous.
It is also the first time I see Yong Wei SO quiet and SO serious. LIKE!
Mint continued with 泪不停不停的流:
At her last song, 玩具国王, fan whipped out the little door gift and starting waving it to the tune. Aww.
Hehe, Mint gave us a ‘Media’ pass. :3
Mint band did a great job because, they are friends who have only been playing together for two months. The band is named after their vocalist, Mint Leong. Since November last year, they have come together during the weekends for rehearsals and practices at All About Eve Bar under the special guidance of Won.
Ying Zi won herself a Mint T-shirt from the lucky draw.
William gave us more of his well-made Rocher roses, which you can get them at Rocher Creations!
