[Ta Kung Pao]

Steven Ma headed up to Guangzhou as a guest in a promotional event in a housing estate and his fans all arrived early to wait for him. As soon as Steven arrived the fans immediately enveloped him creating a warm atmosphere. Having performed on an outdoor stage, he said: "The weather in Guangzhou has been very hot and standing on the stage that day, I felt as though someone had switched on a big hose because my clothes were totally soaked."

Although he was drenched in sweat, this did not affect Steven's performance andd when the fans caught sight of him, they immediately praised him and said he looked better than on screen. However the most surprising thing for him was the fans praise for his appearance in "Gam Pai Bing Yan" (Better Halves). Steven laughs: "They used 'very stylish' to describe me. I have never heard this phrase being used on an ancient character."

With Steven receiving such praise, this made him treasure more the chance of a close encounter he had with his fans. In the coming six months, he will be travelling often to the mainland to promote and perform, as well as his records, he will also be filming a series. In order to be in the best condition to face the busy work ahead, Steven is taking Chinese medicine every day to regulate his body and when he goes to China to work later, he will ask his colleagues to bring him some medicinal soup. He says: "In order to have a healthy body, I don't mind being a 'medicine pot'."
