King of Mandopop Jay Chou is here for a two-night concert as part of his Carnival World Tour on Jan. 10 and 11.
But Chou has proven to be not just musically talented, but also really good at engaging fans.
Settled bill for his fans at Atlas bar
On Jan. 10, Chou made an impromptu announcement that he would buy a meal for any fan who said hi to him in real life, thus sending the fans into a frenzy.
Many speculated and camped at some possible locations such as Founder Bak Kut Teh and Tanjong Beach Club, which he has visited before.
But those at Atlas bar were ultimately the lucky ones, as Chou visited the place and settled their bills.
Chou mentioned that he will continue to give fans a treat on Sunday (Jan. 12) at his second concert on Jan. 11.
Surprises fans at Raffles Hotel
Indeed on Sunday afternoon, Chou caught a table of fans off guard by asking if he could pay for their meal at 藝Yì by Jereme Leung.
Leung is a Singaporean chef who has returned to Singapore after leaving for Shanghai to hone his culinary skills 17 years ago.
Now, Leung has become one of the most influential chefs in the modern Chinese culinary movement and he opened the restaurant, 藝Yì, at Raffles Hotel last September.
Visibly (and pleasantly) surprised to see Chou, the table of ladies stood up and gasped, “Oh my God”.
And it seemed like Chou’s presence went unnoticed initially.
This fan managed to get a photo with Chou all thanks to her mother’s keen eyes:
And this was what happened when everyone else realised Chou was around.
One of his Instastory also shows another group of fans chasing after him in the corridor of the hotel, requesting to take a photo with him.
Chou didn’t seem to mind at all, and the group of ladies got their wish fulfilled too.
Later in the day, Chou reposted the photo with this group of fans as an Instastory and wrote, “I’ll treat you guys again when I’m free next time” as the caption.
