Goodbye LingZhi...

If you ever tune in to YES 933, you will definitely know who Ling Zhi is. But if you don't, fyi, she is a DJ. Almost 2 years ago, LingZhi hosted the night show, 11pm - 2am ; it was know as 2300 ji mo you ren pei. Being a student, especially when exams are coming, i will tuned in to her programme from 11pm to 2am. Almost everynights, tuning in to her program and mug and mug. Mainly because she has an unique voice and has her views on certain things. Her way of thinking is kind of similarly to mine, hence, i anticipated listening to her every night.

When 933 changed the schedule for the programmes, Peifen took over the time slot and Ling Zhi was arranged to host with Zhi Yong for the morning show. Seriously, after Peifen took over, it was really different. Very different. The voice, the way they think.... very very very different. And i don't know since when, i stopped listening to that time slot. Initially, there was an empty feeling about it, and it takes some time to get use to it. Even till now, when Jia hui is the one hosting the night show, i will still give it a miss.

I began to tune in to LingZhi's morning show, which is from 7am - 1oam. As it is a morning show, the DJs have to be livier and sounds happier. It is a change from her night show where it was a more relaxing feel. The change is a must and i got used to it. Ling Zhi is still Ling Zhi. Then she introduced her "joke of the day" which is like the hightlight of the program, sometimes, the jokes are not funny but there are times when it is really really funny !! Being a straightforward person, Ling Zhi is pretty frank in her remarks. Not that harsh but some people just cannot take the joke. Some listeners wrote in to the Lian He Zao Bao to complain about her. Nonetheless, she still keep to her style of hosting.

When Mary was introduced to the morning show during july, and with Ling Zhi hinting that she hoped to do something else, there is a clear sign that she is leaving. And when music dairies was stopped, i also smelt something fishy. Ling Zhi was not involved in the Global Chinese Music Award, which is on this Saturday. Many obvious clues, but the most obvious would have to be the one on tuesday. Mary and Zhi Yong had to prepare for the GCMA and so Ling Zhi hosted Mon and Tue shows alone. On Tue, as the show was about to end, Ling Zhi said: " Well, that's it for today. I hope that you will like what i have done today and today will be the last time i will be hosting alone."

This morning, it was official. Ling Zhi is leaving. And, tomorrow will be her last day.

This morning, Zhi Yong played Kit Chan's "Tian leng jiu hui lai" for Ling Zhi. Ironically, Ling Zhi played the same song for Shi Han (her previous partner for an earlier morning show) before. She didn't announced her plans for the future but i just hope that she can do what she want and be happy about it. Ling Zhi has been part of my life for some time, now that she will be gone, i guess i will have 1 more chance not to tune in to 933 le.

So, i guess it is time to say goodbye.

Goodbye Ling Zhi, Remember to return to air leh !!

Hope to hear you soon.
