STORYLINE
GARY CHAW LAUNCHES BIOGRAPHY
Malaysian singer Gary Chaw launched a biography of his life, entitled "Close to you" at a Hong Kong book fair on Saturday (24 July, 2010).
More than a hundred fans waited behind barriers to get a signed copy of the book which was written by psychologist and columnist, Dr. Chen Song-en.
Chaw said the book charts his life from his early days, right through to the present day, and includes all of his experiences, both positive and negative.
"It's a book about my life from childhood to adulthood, including all of my experiences, no matter whether they were good or bad. I hope the book will inspire the younger generation to be flexible. If you make mistakes, you should admit it and correct them. You always have the chance to make a fresh start."
The singer explained why they didn't use an image of his face for the book cover.
"We shouldn't only pay attention to how people look. I would rather reveal my back than my face for the book cover," he said. " I guess showing my face doesn't sell more copies. We should listen to other people and observe them to see how they behave and what they say. That way we can learn from them."
Chaw, a Mandarin pop singer is popular in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.
He was sentenced to twelve months probation and fined one thousand Hong Kong dollars by the Hong Kong district court in January 2010, for an assault on Cantonese pop singer Justin Lo.
In September Chaw admitted to having a drinking problem and started the process of changing his behavior.
