My all time favourite is still "Home (家)" by Kit Chan. ♥

Honestly I have no favourite. I like only some of them though and one of them is "Home".

Thanks for visiting.

Probably 'Home' has the best tune from the rest of the songs played during the event, and it simply stayed on my head playing.. like a LSS effect(last song syndrome) :)
