Astor was born to be artistic and talented to be an artist. She enjoys herself as a designer, a photographer, a singer, a songwriter as well as a producer. Her all rounded character, both rational and emotional, has made her become an outstanding image designer and a great creative writer. She is sensitive to everything that happened around her. Being fond of traveling and reading, she has many chances to explore different culture extensively. Astor loves singing. Her in-born Chinese elements, together with the chemistry of her artistic talents in various aspects, make every of her performance unique and attractive. Her instant feelings and emotions on things happened around her can always be harmonized and reflected in every of her performance. This has helped creating the artistic style of her own. Every one of her performance can become her masterpiece. This is her debut album that showcases her talent. All songs were carefully chosen to ensure that the best of audiophile sound is capture.
Highly recommended songs are “Superstar” is probably the best cover that I have heard so far. As Astor's voice resemble Karen Carpenter so much, therefore when listening to other songs, its as if Karen singing them herself.

“ Astor singing with Karen Carpenter’s charm, voice gentle and meticulous…. Her rendition of songs “Honesty” by Billy Joel, “Desperado” by Eagles has its own flavor of the Hong Kong music scene. It reminds of me “Susan Wong”.”
Hong Kong AV magazine "AV magazine" (Sept 09):
“Astor's voice very easily blends with the music instrument to audiophile effect. The songs chosen highlight the beauty, and in the sound field between slim and graceful way out of a clear display. Her range is quite wide interpretation of the different songs are very much at home, for example, “Superstar”, “Michelle”, “Honesty”, “Crying”, “Feelings” or “Desperado” its gives a natural flow to the album that you can keep on listen again and again.”
