“Chengdu is very similar to my hometown of Hsinchu. The climate is humid and the air smells of food.

In the 1980s, Qian Baihui became popular across the Taiwan Strait and Southeast Asia with songs such as “When I Miss You”, “Walking Through the Coffee House”, and “Amidst the Rain”. Later, she went to live in Beijing, but fell out of the music scene because of taking care of her family. Until recently, the mainland ID card was posted on the Internet, saying that “the motherland is my strong support.” The 58-year-old became the focus again.

“It has been more than 20 years since I got my (Mainland) ID card. In fact, it was just to share my life.” Qian Baihui, who was sitting in front of the reporter, wore long hair and exquisite makeup. Talking about her fate with the mainland, she recalled her teenage years.

When she was in elementary school, Qian Baihui got acquainted with the mainland in her geography class. In her history class, she saw the colorful Forbidden City and the Great Wall for the first time. It’s so beautiful. At that time, I had an idea. I must go, and I must go if I have the opportunity.”

In 1990, Qian Baihui was invited to participate in a concert on the eve of the Beijing Asian Games, and finally had the opportunity to come to Beijing. That trip to Beijing also became a turning point in her life.

“When the plane was about to arrive in Beijing in 20 minutes, my heart was pounding.” Qian Baihui recalled that when he stepped off the plane, he bounced like a child, and felt even more shocked when he stepped onto the airport expressway. “The airport expressway is huge. It’s very modern, very different from what Taiwan tells everyone.”

In the mainland of the motherland, there are three places that impressed Qian Baihui most: Xiamen in Fujian, Karamay in Xinjiang, and Chengdu in Sichuan.

She grew up in Hsinchu since she was a child, facing Xiamen across the sea. After coming to settle in the mainland, she often went to the beach in Xiamen because she missed her hometown, and in the middle of the night, she would send a message to the moon on the other side. Because her mother once told her to look at the moon when she was homesick, “You look at the moon, and I also look at the moon.”

In Xinjiang, Qianbaihui has witnessed the modern development of remote areas in the motherland. “Cotton mining is all mechanized, Karamay is rich in resources, and there are oil drilling rigs on the roadside.”

Do you regret that you haven’t returned to Taiwan after you settled in the mainland? Qian Baihui’s answer was categorical, “No regrets.” She said that her family members are very supportive of her choice.

Qian Baihui recalled that before his mother passed away, she had two hours of WeChat phone call with her. From the bottom of her heart, she was grateful for her mother’s support for many years.

“Sichuan people eat spicy food, the smell is very special, I walked on the street and smelled it, as if I came home.” Qian Baihui said, life in Chengdu is casual and comfortable, and I like to go shopping in my free time. Because of her mother’s influence, she has always loved coffee. “I have to drink a cup of coffee in the afternoon until now. I have coffee in different coffee houses in Chengdu, enjoying the scenery and seeing people. I feel very leisurely and very relaxing.”

Currently, Qianbaihui is preparing for the first solo concert after many years. The time is scheduled for January next year. “Music comes from life. I live in Chengdu and continue my music work. I also hope that young people now know me. .”
