Attended Daniel Wuís architectural design at the West Kowloon Cultural District on 19th Dec. His design blended perfectly into the surrounding area. The structure was made out of bamboo poles. Itís a very impressive structure with a sense of grandeur as well as a sense of whimsy. Well done.

It was an informal party and great to catch up with some friends like Derek Yee, Vincent Kuk, Tony Chan (director of Hot Summer Days) and Sion Michel (cinematographer of Hot Summer Days) as well as alivenotdead.com CEO Patrick Lee.
Lit up in blue in the middle Dan's creation really stands out.
We attended the Closing Ceremony of the Hong Kong Asia Independent Film Festival on Sunday, Nov 29th at the Grand Cinema in Elements, a new shopping mall in Kowloon, and saw Quentin Leeís romantic comedy, The People Iíve Slept With. We arrived a bit late and had to sit in the second row with our heads tilted up the whole time. Good thing the movie was very enjoyable! † lead actor Archie Kao, Glen Chin, director Quentin Lee, lead actress Karin Anna Cheung were all in attendance † † festival organizer Vincent Chui of Ying E Chi (back to us) chatting with Quentin Lee † † The movie poster † On the way to the cinema we saw a diamond-studded (rhinestones, actually) Mercedez-Benz on display. Itís the grand prize of a giveaway for Mainland Chinese tourists only. Would anyone drive that thing in China? † † † Afterwards everyone went to the Closing Party at Stormies which was a lot of fun. Saw many friends we hadn't seen in a while. Even Teddy Chen was there. His new film, Bodyguards and Assassins is coming out in two weeks and he had just finished the sound mix the night before!
