4- When did you start to collect Sting items and why?
My first knowledge of Sting is I bought a cassette of re-cover artists songs in 1996. There are some Sting songs, and in the meantime, Sting just released his "Mercury Falling". So I bought "Mercury Falling" as my first CD and falling in love with his music. But my real collecting is one day I felt so boring, so I went to eBay to see what it is in 2001. Since then I saw lots of incredible Sting items, and my hard life began.

9- How many time did you see sting/Police live?
"0", Sting went to Taiwan twice for all 3 concerts in 1994 and 1996. It's pity that since I really know him, he doesn't come back again. Hope he'll back to the small island soon.
