BACK FROM HONG KONG !!!

Posted in GENERAL on August 15, 2008 by tayh0010


For the past 6 days, I was away in Hong Kong to attend the screening of my short film, Wet Season, as well as Lincoln Chia’s Mu Gui Ying at the 4th InDPanda International Short Film Festival.

After surviving flights of stairs at train stations, the incessant shopping crowd, topless construction workers and a Mong Kok fire, I must say it is overall a very enjoyable trip and I never had so much pork in my life.

Lincoln and I would like to give our big thanks to the organizers of the festival, Jonathan Hung and Henry Chan, for being such great hosts to us during our stay. Sorry for keeping you guys up till so late and we really appreciate the extra efforts you guys take to make us feel comfortable with our trip. You guys are amazing. Your passion and dedication to film has been very inspiring and we hope to catch up with you two soon. All the best with the next InDPanda festival !!!

We would also like to extend our thanks to their little helper, Eric Law, as well for bringing us around and sharing with us so much about Hong Kong. You are once again further proof that Hong Kong people will always look more younger than Singaporeans.

On the plane with Lincoln Chia. If we are the mafia, I am sure no one will take us seriously.

Attending the 4th InDPanda International Short Film Festival, Hong Kong.

Hong Kong audiences are actually very intelligent and they give some really constructive feedback. They are also very friendly and honest with their opinion.

Hong Kong Streets. Night and Day. You can never avoid pictures taken of it when you are here.

These collagen masks are cheap and I am a sucker when it comes to big discounts. The unnatural rate of good-looking HK people also puts some pressure on us to start our anti-aging maintenance NOW. So don’t blame me for being vain.

Left: San Miguel beer is especially popular and cheap here in Hong Kong. The can ones are more gasy but the bottled ones are the best.

Right: And erm….yes as you can see. I brought home a friend. For those who are fans of the comic book, Dragonball, you can easily guess that this is my favourite character. The Majin Buu. So evil… Yet so adorable…

Ok, it worries me now that we probably share the same smile.
