Underwear for Singapore singer Elson Soh
Fans giving gifts like flowers, chocolates, stuffed toys and cards have been a regularity in the everyday life of an artiste. But Singaporean singer-songwriter Elson Soh broke the tradition when he received a "personal" gift of 7 underwear of 7 different brands from his fans, he reveals.
He mentioned that his ardent fans have been taking good care of him, making sure that he has enough to eat from his busy schedule.
"There was once when I was home and I heard the doorbell rang. I opened the door and there is nobody except for a bag of tidbits and food of all my favourite food. There was a note saying: "Please take care of yourself. We love you!" They are really sweet.", he said with a smile.
Talking about the underwear incident, he was more jovial than coy than expected.
"The bag of tidbits and cards were a usual sight from my home. But there was once when I received the same bag but it wasn't food. I took out and realised it's actually undergarments, branded undergarments. Till now I still don't know who gave it to me but the note was still intact."
When quipped about what the note wrote, Elson replied bashfully, "It wrote 'I know you dont buy branded stuffs, so we bought for you instead. Hope you like them!' "
But does it bother him that they intrude his private space?
"I think it's ok as long as my neighbours or the rest of my family doesn't mind. I would think that they are being sweet rather than creepy. After all, they are all for my own good."
Elson Soh will be staging his first ever debut concert at The Max Pavilion on the 9th July 2011.
