Gigi Leung Wing-kei shed a tear or two when making her latest Putonghua album.

The singer-actress said she let her heartfelt feelings about her separation from pop star Ekin Cheng flow when making A Love Song for Myself.

Leung said she began by writing happy and sad songs, but her friends were touched by how tearful she looked when recording ballads reminiscent of her seven-year relationship with Cheng.

'I was surprised that they liked the sad ones better. They must like it when I pour my heart out,' she told fans during a recent promotional tour in Taiwan.

Leung (right) said she couldn't have pulled through the painful break-up without the support of friends and family. 'I'd like to thank whoever for being there for me whenever I needed them, including my fans. '

She also stayed to celebrate her first Christmas on the island with a sell-out open-air concert featuring Taiwanese artistes.
