Last September 15 and 16, I was lucky enough to get to watch my one and only Leehom Wang live in Hong Kong. It was a last minute decision to go since I was just fresh from our France trip last July when the ticket sales started. This trip marked my second time to go to Hong Kong, as well as watch a live Leehom concert. Aside from going to the concert, my friends and I went around and even stopped by Macau for a day trip (which I will probably feature next month).
OMG It’s Jackie Chan!
This was a really fun experience since my friends and I grew from a group of three in 2008 in Taipei to five in 2012 in Hong Kong. Leehom must have been surprised that we were finally able to be there and watch him live. I also had a chance to see him do his pre-concert prayer before the final night’s performance. No photos of him for that one to respect the management’s wishes. Aside from Leehom, I was also able to capture Jackie Chan with my camera.
Enough talk.. let’s get on with the photos.
I’ve posted the September 15 set under OurHome Philippines here. Head on over there if you’d like to see the shots by an amazing point and shoot camera.
And here’s the set for September 16, please enjoy the 385 photos by my beloved D5000 and 55-300mm

The event started a little after 5pm. There was an opening act and after 3 songs, 2AM came out. They sang around 4 songs? I’m not exactly sure because the shooting, the arm/hand fatigue and the thirst got to me by the time they got the cake out. It’s Changmin’s birthday today (and 2 more members with their birthday this month) so fans gave them a very cute musical cake with candles to blow. They also made a video greeting for the boys. Soon after the show was over. It was too long for my arms and hands to take… but it was too short a time to see them in person. The boys were nice and talented, and they tried hard to speak to us in Filipino and English. I hope they come back soon (and bring 2PM along with them of course).
Here’s the photos. A whopping total of 120 clear shots (and I’ve already picked that out of nearly 1k shots for the day). It would have been more if I got a better position like the VIP section or just stuck along the side railings. If you’d like to download all, here’s a zip file.
Feel free to share these but please do not hot link. Don’t forget to credit as well. Enjoy!
So here’s a few photos from the press conference in Siam Paragon last April 1.
I had a hard time taking them since the 300mm lens was old and only had manual focus. I could only take photos overhead because of the crowd.
No Hotlinking please!
