Paula Tsui, a superstar in pop music with lasting charm, has tugged at the heartstrings of millions of music fans with her unique resonating voice. Throughout all these years Paula has won innummerable awards, and is highly respected in the music arena. And all these years Paula has been a devoted user of Amway products, deeply trusting the Amway quality, and she genuinely appreciates the Amway spirit of "Friendship Above All". In July this year, Amway will exclusivly sponsor Paula's concerts held in the Hong Kong Coliseum. Then, Paula's singing career will get further dazzle; then, too, Amway will become an even more familiar name among Hong Kong People,
Paula has not made her name known overnight. Only through unceasing efforts over all these years has she achieved her status today. And this happens to be in line with Amway's road to achievement, which requires continous efforts and breakthroughs. Paula's singing career is based on solid singing skills and vocal qualities while Amway business is based on excellent quality products. Paula is affectionate and sincere, and these are the attitudes Amway distributors adopt towards customers. Amway and Paula Tsui - what a perfect match!

徐小鳳,樂壇上的一顆天皇巨星,以其獨特的磁性歌喉感動萬千樂迷的心弦。歷年來,這顆巨星得過無數獎項,在樂壇上享有崇高地位。而這麼多年以來,徐小鳳對安利產品一直都情有獨鍾,信賴安利產品的優良品質,欣賞安利傳銷商「友情誰可比」的精神。今年七月,安利將贊助徐小鳳假紅磡香港體育館舉行的「Amway徐小鳳金光燦爛演唱會」。徐小鳳絕非一夜竄紅的歌手,多年來一直努力不懈,爭取今天輝煌的成就,而安利生意亦非發達捷徑,需要傳銷商不斷耕耘;才可達致成功,兩者的信念可謂不謀而合。徐小鳳是一位實力派歌手,而安利產品亦一向以實力示人,如上徐小鳳形象親切友善,亦正是Amway傳銷商一向待人接物的宗旨,因此這次Amway贊助徐小鳳的演唱會,可謂天作之合。

    *Amagram    # Paula Tsui

*What is your general impression towards Amway? How do you find this cooperation with Amway?
#I became acquainted with Amway quite some years ago and has so far been regularly using Amway products like the Queen Cookware and G&H Complexion Bar. I have in the past attended a few Amway Specials at which Diamond Direct Distributors were recognized. I was deeply touched on hearing the success stories of the distributor leaders and at the sight of the audience giving loud healthy and sincere image is fully compatible with my own public image. I find it truly exciting to become associated with Amway again in my concerts.

*What are your ways in sustaining popularity among song lovers?
#Well, frankly, I never see myself as a superstar. I became a singer simply because since I was a kid. I have had deep interest in singing, and I'm glad that I can do something I really love. Thus, I prefer people thinking of me as a singer instead of a pop song star. I treat my music fans as close friends. I do go over every letter they send to me. Some contain good advice, others tell touching stories. I'd get my message across to them by way of my songs. Our friendship is bulit up bit through my songs, so to speak.

*What would you regard as the greatest satisfaction your singing career brings you?
#Needless to say, the greatest satisfaction to every singer comes from the applause of the audience: that symboizes their appreciation and that they identify with the singer. Now that I have been singing for so many years, I can somehow differentiate between "genuine" and "fake" applause, and distinguish gestures from real passions and encouragement.

*Can you share with Amway disturbutors your keys to success? Is constant practice doing the trick?
#Contrary to what people might think, I actually seldom practice singing. That not only sustains my interest but also keeps me vibrant and somehow makes me nervous... as if I were making my debut... every time I go on stage.
As to success... Well, it's the product of a combination of good fortune, ceaseless efforts and persistence. To every job I have in hand I'd endeavour to get it done, never giving up without good reasons. My singing career being long, I'm able to upgrade my voice and vocal capacity.

*Of all songs, which are your favourite?
#Oh, plenty... "Ebbs & FLows", "Life is Full Of Hopes", "Casual Thoughts" and so on are all my favourites. I'm really fortune to be able to have great songs as my companion at different stages in my singing career. A great majority of my songs revolves around life philosophies. All encourage people to think positive and be optimistic: neither getting depressed in defeat nor going overjoyed in success. I hope my audience can find consolence and support in my songs such that they can boldly face up to failures. Above all I'd be glad if my songs can bring people happiness.

*In retrospect, which is the most memorable phase in your singing career?
#I enjoy each stage in my life to the full. Every period gives me joy of a unique kind, and deserves one to recap the anecdotes, be they bitter or sweet. Terrifying something might indeed be, it nevertheless has a positive implication. The key thing is to stay calm and confident.

*But then in the long-winded years in life, one is bound to meet with details. How should one face up to failures?
#Take things easy as they come! I believe that one has to know of ways to solve one's own problem... to make oneself happy again. I never like burdening others with my own trobles. That is why I'd chat with my friends about my troubles only when I've solved them all. I'd love to make people around me live their lives happily. That's simply a basic obligation for everyone.

*In recent years, quite a few pop song superstars spoke of retiring, have you also had any such plan?
#That really needs real guts! To be frank I did have stuggled over this question. But at the end of the day I find that so far I still love singing dearly. I'd not state a retirement date lightly, as I'll stick to my words should I do so. I regard it quite unnecessary to fix a date on which I'll fade away from the pop music arena; pressure will mount if one does so.

*Do you fancy moving over to acting in movies or on T.V.?
#My interset in acting is far less than that in singing. Just find it unnatural to express my passions before the camera. In contrast, when I sing I have live-targets. It's like telling my own friends about my feelings.

*Have you got any plans for living in other places?
#Of the numerous places in the world I've visited, I ultimately find that Hong Kong is somehow the best, and only Hong Kong can make me develop a sense of belonging. Well, my belief is... as long as Hong Kong people all work hard for the future, Hong Kong certainly will continue to be a land of joy.

*安利月刊  # 徐小鳳

*可否談該安利公司給你的印象及對這次合作的感受?
#認識安利已是多年前的事,至今仍然有使用安利優質產品如皇后煲、蜜糖皂等;亦曾到過一些鑽石傳銷商的褒獎大會,耳聞被嘉許的領袖在台上演說成功故事,目睹台下傳銷商起立鼓掌歡呼,溫馨感人的場面令我留下非常深刻的印象。安利公司的形象健康、誠懇,跟我本身的形象非常配合,對於這次與安利公司合作舉行演唱會,我感到非常興奮。

*有甚麼秘訣贏取歌迷的擁戴,成為炙手可熱的巨星嗎?
#我並不認為自自己是什麼閃爍的巨星,唱歌只是我心愛的工作而已,我自少便對歌唱產生濃厚的興趣,而又很幸運地能以自己的興趣為工作,我喜歡別人稱我為歌手,而非歌星。
我視歌迷為最親密的朋友。他們寄給我的信,我會親自拆閱,當中有寶貴的意見,也有動人的故事;而我則透過歌曲把訊息傳遞給他們。我跟歌迷的友情可說是透過歌曲一點一滴地建立起來的。

*那歌唱事業給你最大的滿足是甚麼?
#作為一個歌手,最大的滿足感當然是來自觀眾的掌聲。我喜歡聽到觀眾熱烈的掌聲,那代表了認同和欣賞。這麼多年來,我已能分辨掌聲的真偽,知道那些是禮貌式的應酬;那些是敷衍式的拍掌;那些是真心的感動和鼓勵。

*可否跟安利傳銷商分享一下你的成功心得,是經常練歌嗎?
#我自己平時其實甚少唱歌的,這樣可以保持對歌唱的興趣。現在,每一次上台演唱時,仍會覺得新鮮,興奮,還有第一次演唱時的忐忑不安。
至於成功,是運氣、努力及恆心缺一不可的。對於每項工作,我均會努力不懈,絕不輕言放棄。而多年來的演出則為我的聲線,氣量建立深厚的根基。

*你唱過的歌曲不下百首,那些是你最喜歡的作品?
#喜歡的歌曲有很多,如順流逆流、人生滿希望、隨想曲等,都是耐聽的歌曲。我很慶幸在歌唱事業的每個階段均有不同的歌曲陪伴自己。我有很大部份作品是寄意人生的,如〈隨想曲〉的樂天豁達,參透世情;〈人生滿希望〉之積極進取,鍥而不捨,全部都是鼓勵人在失意時不必垂頭喪氣,得意時亦不要得意忘形。我希望觀眾能在我的歌曲中找到安慰、鼓勵及支持,知道如何去面對成敗。我希望我的歌能為人帶來快樂。

*回顧過往的歌唱事業,那個階段最令你印象難忘?
#我享受人生的每個階段,每個階段均有獨特的樂趣,無論是苦是甜,都有值得回味的地方。即使遇上最惡劣的事情總有其積極意義,最重要是保持冷靜及信心。

*但在漫長的人生路途上,總會有失意挫折的時刻,那又如何面對?
#笑著面對吧!我認為做人必得懂得自解,要知道怎樣令自己的煩惱加諸別人身上,故此只會在解決了所有問題,心情回復過來後,才找朋友傾訴。我喜歡令身旁的人都能快快樂樂地生活,這是做人的基本責任嘛。

*近年來,樂壇上不少天皇巨星都聲言退休,你也有這個打算嗎?
#那是需要極大的勇氣,我也曾為這個問題掙扎過,但最後發現唱歌仍然是自己心愛的工作。我是一個言出必行的人,故絕不輕言退休,何況隨遇而安可將壓力減輕,實在毋須定出一個退出歌壇的日期。

*那會向其他方面,如電影、電視發展嗎?
#我對演戲的興趣絕不及唱歌,雖然內心有豐富的感情欲表達,但實在難以在鏡頭面前流露,感到很不自然。唱歌則是對著活生生的觀眾道出所想所感。

*有沒有打算到其他地方生活?
#我曾到過世界上不少國家旅遊,最終還是覺得香港最好,只有香港令我產生歸屬感,我認為只要香港人齊心努力必定能創造美好的將來,令香港繼續成為一片樂土。

With ever-lasting confidence
Paula Tsui treaded one section of her life journey afer another, occupying a firm positive in the music arena. From whatever perspective she is viewed, Paula is an all-glittering superstar. We all look forward to Paula's performance in her concerts in July.
懷著不滅的信心,徐小鳳走過一段又一段的人生路,在樂壇始終屹立不倒。即使徐小鳳不以歌星自居,在廣大的樂迷心目中,她始終是一顆光芒四射、金光燦爛的巨星。我們將熱切期待這顆巨星在七月的演唱會再展光華。
