After Live in Concert 97’ I was at Leslie’s home one day when an idea struck him: “Sister, I have something for you! Something you can use so it doesn’t go to waste.” He then brought me a beautiful pair of high heels. He said he had bought two pairs of white satin high heels from Manolo Blahnik in New York just for the concert. After returning to Hong Kong, he had them dyed red and covered in red sequins. Since there was no need for the shoes afterwards, he gave them to me.

I wore them once. After he passed away, I was reluctant to put them on again, keeping them as is ever since.
