Michael has a milestone birthday coming up in February 2018. I ran an idea past Gail that passed with approval.
I have small cards that are 2.5X3.5. The idea for the card is not to say happy birthday, but you have room to put a few sentences to tell Michael why you love him, his music or how his music helped you in hard times. It’s should be big enough for a wallet size photo if you would like.
Then when he’s home sitting at his desk, he can pull 1 or 2 cards to read when he has the time. Our words will be with him all year.
I request a SASE, and I will send you a card. Write your note and put in your picture. When your finished, mail it back to me. You could even send your note on a 2x3 size paper and I’ll attach it to a card. Send your picture to if you like. That would take out the SASE step.
For those out of the country, I checked with my postmaster and she said you can put your own postage on the return envelope equivalent to $1.15 US.
Email me, Sally, at and I can give you an address to send your SASE (self addressed stamped envelope).
A second option that isn’t as personal, is to email me a short note and I can cut and paste it onto a card for you. I don’t want to handle pictures this way because I’m not that computer literate and don’t want to make errors with something as personal as a picture.
Just let me know the option that works best for you.
When all the cards are gathered, I’ll put them in some sort of decorate box. And the box of cards will be Michael’s birthday gift from us.
It might seem early, but it’s something that we can work on Now through January. I’d like to be finished by February since I would need to get a box and mail it off to Michael.
Your welcome to share my email with anyone you think may be interested in contributing to Michael’s milestone 65!
Looking forward to hearing from you, Sally

Hi Devi, my friend Sylvia just posted this video with ticket information for the Casablanca concert:

I do hope this is of some use to you. Take care sweetie and have a great week. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

Hi Devi, long time no see! I just wanted to let you know, if you're still interested, that Michael will be in your town this year! Gail just posted this:

New Date:

June 2, 2015
The Kasablanka
Jakarta, Indonesia
So, we don't have ticket information yet, but just so you know. Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

Hi Devi, don’t worry about the delay responding, glad to hear from you. :D I wish you well in your new job sweetie. So how is Agnes doing in America, aside from watching “South Park”? lol She really seemed to enjoy watching it with Michael... :D Well sweetie, if I ever hear that Michael sang live with Agnes and find the video, you’d be the first one who would hear about it. Michael is in Japan right now. He actually had to cancel a show in Indonesia because there was a problem with the venue. Well anyway, yes I’m doing pretty good Devi, thanks for asking. Hurricane Sandy just passed a bit to the South of us. We’re okay and only had heavy rain and strong winds but some 49,000 people are without power North of us in the Laurentians and a good part of Toronto Ontario are without power too, but New York and New Jersey were declared as devastated areas by President Obama and we’re hoping to hear from our friends who may be flooded or without power too. Otherwise, we’re starting to try and come up with a good idea for a present to Michael for his 60th birthday in February. Do you have any ideas? :D Well anyway, thanks for writing Devi, take good care of yourself and stay in touch. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi Devi, long time no see! I was thinking of you today because we're starting to get reports and articles from your part of the world since Michael is touring Asia right now. He was just in Malasia and Korea, will be in Indonesia, then moving on to Japan. He will be, or has already sung "Said I loved you... but I lied" with Lea Simanjuntak, so I was wondering if Agnes Monica was supposed to sing with him tomorrow, or if she's touring elsewhere. That would be a shame though. Well anyway, hope you're doing well Devi and if you can, let me hear from you. Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada :D

Hi Devi, thank you for your message and  don’t worry about the late reply: better late than never! :D I’m sorry to hear you can’t get any time off but I hope you enjoy your work and you were able to have a nice Xmas and New Year’s day. Oh, I’m so happy for you Devi! You’re very welcome for the info, Gail is an angel, isn’t she? Enjoy your autograph sweetie and I do hope we talk again more in 2012 and that you and yours have a healthy, joyous and prosperous one. Take care sweetie. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada :D

Hi Devi, sorry it took a while for me to write but I’ve had computer problems and have been off-line for a week and I’m having a hard time catching up. I’ve heard from my friend  who got the Japanese release of "Gems". She’s told me that there was only a small black and white booklet added to the original one and there are no pictures of Agnes, but Michael did write this about her:

“Agnes Monica  :  "The moment I met Agnes Monica I recognised a burgeoning

star with a powerful voice and positive message of empowerment."

Oh, that reminds me, have you heard this interview  Devi?

You should be able to hear it right when you get to the blog page. Agnes sure sounds like she’s having a great time! Lol Well, hope you enjoy it sweetie. Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi Devi, I just quickly wanted to thank you for your sweet message. Being blind is not an issue on this forum so it’s all good! Oh I know what you mean about people not accepting trouble, I used to have a friend like that. Life happens but you can’t let every little thing bother you. Besides, this is a place to have fun! Oh I don’t know if I deserve admiration for just going through life, lol but thank you Devi for the kind words! OMG, good luck getting your booklet signed, let me know how that works out! Well Michael is on your side of the world now. Let me know if you see him on TV. We’ve been told Michael might be doing some promo over there. I’m still waiting for people to get their Japanese “Gems” so no news yet on my side. Thanks for writing Devi and have a great week. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

P.S.: Oh chute, I forgot to ask: the song with CoCo Lee is the original version of “How am I supposed to live without you” with CoCo’s voice added, isn’t it? I heard it on YouTube and that’s what it sounds like to me…

At 10:24pm on October 12, 2011, sylvie boisvert said…

Hi Devi, when my friend read about the many versions of « Gems”, she said we’d have presents for all 12 days of Christmas! Lol Oh no sweetie, the fact that I’m legally blind is a fact of life. If other people can see and I can’t, it’s not their fault. :D I did show your picture to a friend who could see it though. I used to see when I was younger so it’s fun to know how things look sometimes, but be sure you didn’t say anything wrong. I used to mention it to people but since I can manage on the site with very little problems, it seems pointless. You are so sweet Devi, thank you for your kind words! I’ve made lots of great fan friends on this forum and this is the first site I can actually interact with people so I’m having the time of my life here! Take care Devi and I’ll let you know as soon as I can about the Japan release. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada xx

Hi Devi, wow, I was just about to write to you! lol That’s wonderful news that Michael’s CD is in the best sellers in Indonesia! Well, noone’s ordered the Japan version so we don’t know about packaging yet. We do know that there’s an extra live track of “How can we be lovers” but that’s it. I will probably order it. Gail just told us that there will be a German, Portuguese, South African, Asian and Japanese version, yikes! I know you’re an Agnes fan sweetie but I’m not sure how much you actually enjoy or know from Michael. If I find out anything, I’ll lbe sure to let you know. BTW, the American version is in a triple fold cardboard pack and there is a booklet in that one. Oh Devi, I think I might have forgotten to tell you that I’m blind so I can’t see if you have anything on your page, I can only read text with my screen-reader program. :D Well anyway, my husband should order the Japanese version soon, so as soon as I get it, I’ll keep you posted. Thank you again so much for your link to the site, this will help a lot of fans Devi! Take care sweetie and have a great week! Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi again Devi, wow, thank you so much again for this, your help is very much appreciated! One of my friends told me that SILYBIL is on the Asian release, along with HAISTLWY with Coco Lee, do you know her? Oh and by the way, can you read Japanese? :D I’m very curious to find out what extra songs are on it and if there’s a DVD that comes with it. My German friends are very unhappy because they were supposed to get a special version of “Gems” but it’s been taken off listings and they don’t even have the basic version in their country. You would expect better from a company like Sony. Well anyway, if I find out anything from Gail, I’ll keep you posted. I hope you’re doing well Devi, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

At 11:48pm on September 18, 2011, sylvie boisvert said…
Hi Devi, thanks so much for your message! I've passed the info on to the forum moderator Gail and she said that they do have the listing on and so it's looking good! She's double-checking if she can put it officially on the main  page of the site. If you have questions like that, she's the most qualified to ask and you can reach her at I did ask her and was very happy you passed on the info, thanks from all of us! Take care sweetie and I'll talk to you soon. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi Devi, well, if you check  the “events” page here:

You should have all the details and links you need. Last October, they filmed the “Hitman returns” special for American TV that did not include Agnes monica, but I don’t know if they’ll change the line-up or not for various countries. Anyway, hope you find everything you need. Wow, lucky you the concert is so close to your birthday! Good luck Devi, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

At 7:51pm on August 16, 2011, sylvie boisvert said…

Hi Devi, I have news for you my dear! It’s not about the international release of “Gems” but just in case you’d feel like seeing Michael in concert, he’ll be part of the “Hitman returns” tour in Asia in late October and he’ll be in Jakarta 10/28 at Plenary Hall. I have no idea if Agnes will be part of the show, because she’s not mentioned in the info Gail gave us, but I suggest you check the Plenary Hall web site if you’re interested. That’s it for now sweetie, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

At 3:44pm on August 13, 2011, sylvie boisvert said…

Hi Devi, that’s wonderful to hear the new SILYBIL is out in the Philippines too! Thanks for telling me you have it on your page and I can listen anytime! :D Nothing has been made official about the foreign releases yet. We thought the German release would be out by July 1 but it’s been postponed. I’m hoping that SILYBIL will be included on the deluxe version of “Gems” and be sure I’ll let you know if I hear anything at all. To tell you the truth, I’m under the impression that Michael is still working on the deluxe version, because new duets keep popping up on YouTube with people from all over. When fans find them, we put them on this thread, in case you’d like to check it out:

So you’re a really big fan of Agnes huh? It’s good to hear she’s a nice person too. Devi, I’m telling you, I feel like I did when I first got “The one thing”: I listened to SILYBIL over and over until I gave myself a headache! Lol Okay, I have to get off the computer but it was very nice hearing from you sweetie. Let’s keep each other posted, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

At 2:41am on August 12, 2011, sylvie boisvert said…

OMG Devi, thank you so much for sharing this! Can you believe that voice? It brought tears to my eyes… I so appreciate this, thank you so much Devi! Thanks also for letting me know the CD is not out yet. Did you get the American version of “Gems” though? It’s just so wonderfully warm and beautiful, I can’t begin to tell you… It sounds like Michael will have one heck of a deluxe version of the “Gems” or  way too many international versions: he’s been talking about all kinds of duets recently. Then again, maybe he’ll do a “Volume 2” or something, I don’t know. Well, as long as we have access  to buy them, I guess it’s all good. Thanks again ever so much Devi, you’re a sweetie for thinking of me! Take care. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

At 4:28pm on June 10, 2011, sylvie boisvert said…

Hi Devi, how are you sweetie? Well, I hope. I just wanted to let you know that we’ve had news of a new German release of “Gems” that will be called “Duets” in Germany, with a few different songs, to be released on July 1. So I think it might be a good idea to chek in on-line stores in your country if  there might be another version there too. For all we know, SILYBIL with Agnes Monica will only be available on the deluxe version, but I thought I’d let you know. Here is the info for the German release:

Oh, BTW, I found this YouTube video of behind the scenes footage with Agnes Monica:

It’s not much but at least, you have an idea, enjoy! Take care Devi and have a great weekend. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi Devi, I'm sorry I haven't accepted your sweet friends request before, thank you so much for adding me! I don't visit my "friends" page very often. I hope you're doing well and hope you're keeping track of the new live videos of the new songs we're finding on Youtube. Have a great weekend, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
At 7:42pm on May 13, 2011, sylvie boisvert said…

Hi Devi, I’ve got good news for you! Follow this link:

Well, it’s not perfect news but it’s good news, enjoy! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

At 5:55pm on May 10, 2011, sylvie boisvert said…

Hi again Devi, well, it looks like we’ll have to wait longer for the bonus tracks. Gail the forum moderator said that all the releases I’ve told you about will be sold in those countries, but will be exactly the same. The different versions will come later and no details are available yet. Sorry to have gotten your hopes up. Well, the good news is that I’ll have more time to save up for the other versions… :D Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
