After an 18-month long absence from Singapore, International Recording Artiste Sun Ho finally made her homecoming on Wednesday, 17 December 2008.
No matter that her flight touched down at 5 am when the sun had not yet risen, as far as the hundred-odd fan crowd was concerned, the rays of this Sun was all that mattered.
The excited crowd from Sun Fan Club thronged Sun as she made her way out of the arrival terminal, waving placards, flowers and gifts, expressing jubilation at her long-awaited return to Singapore. With son Dayan in tow, Sun was visibly surprised and wowed at such a huge welcome; calling out to her fans, “What are you guys doing here, why aren’t you sleeping?” At this, the crowd shrieked with delight.
Many of the supporters were elated to see their pop idol up close and in person for the first time since May 2007. That she was so cheery and all smiles after a long journey, many felt warm and heartened. Chong Xiao Ting, an NTU undergraduate who was busy putting some finishing touches on her placard for Sun at the airport before arrival, had this to say, “I want to be here to show Sun that we really miss her and that we are totally thrilled that she is back here in Singapore!”
Exchanging greetings with her Fan Club, Sun stressed on how much she had missed them and how happy she was to be back in Singapore. She also exclaimed that the sight of all the fans was the perfect first-thing to see upon arrival, much to the delight of the crowd. After a couple of photo-taking and hugs, Sun bade her farewell as she was whisked away in a black sedan.
Sun, who flew in from Los Angeles, was in Singapore for 12 days until 28 December upon which she returned to the States to begin recording on her long-anticipated English pop album.
