AFTER being voted the most popular male singer for the third time, Andy Lau expressed his thanks to thousands of fans at his last concert at the Hongkong Coliseum. ''My dream came true due to fan support,'' said Lau. Asked what his feelings were after putting on a concert, he said: ''The pressure is there, but I always listen to what fans say about my performance. Certainly there will be problems about the show, but I will try to get rid of them.'' Singing star Leon Lai took time out to be with friends during this Lunar New Year. Lai said the more fame and money you gained, the more you had to sacrifice. ''But I don't worry about things like that, it's enough to have the fans recognise my efforts,'' he said. However, it is obvious Lai has made some less-than-impressive showings in recent music competitions. He said he was a little disappointed with his achievements in the past year, but they had served to strengthen his will and he would strive for better results. Singer Sandy Lam said: ''I am afraid of crowds. And sometimes, being spotted by people can lead to embarrassing situations. That's why I prefer to stay at home and watch television to get into the festive spirit.'' For artist Monica Chan the Chinese New Year would be more fun if her relatives were around. ''My family has immigrated. And what is worse, many shops in Hongkong will be closed during the Lunar New Year, so I get pretty bored at this time of year.'' The recent holiday found actor Stephen Chiau taking a break in Macau. ''As my breaks only last a few days, I can't go too far away. That's why I can only choose Macau.''
