She has been criticized for her unwillingness to assume the idol mantle that is so important to Hong Kong’s mainstream music. She’s also been called a prima donna for a chilly demeanor with the media and a Canto-grunge mix of eccentric clothes and feathered hair. Mainly, the industry doesn’t know what to make of her. But it also can’t get enough of her.Wong has become the Chinese music industry’s best-selling female singer, with an excellent voice and a record label (CinePoly) that hasn’t questioned her road to success. Her “who-needs-you” face has appealed to both cynic and sycophant. The 25-year-old has never tasted failure and projects the arrogant immortality of youth. But it is these factors, and a voice with superb potential, that make her so attractive.The important test of longevity is still ahead—and full of potholes. It would be a pity if she were to start listening to the critics.- excerpts from Billboard, August 20, 1994

Scrying is a method of divination where one would gaze upon something with a surface that is polished, reflects light, or somewhat translucent. Most stereotyped would be the crystal ball, in which the fortune teller would concentrate on the crystal and be able to see into the future. Other forms of scrying include, but are not limited to, mirrors, flames, water (as shown above), smoke, and oils. In most cases scrying is used to achieve clairvoyance, or to perceive future events beyond sensory contact.
