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 Lee’s romantic comedy, The People I’ve 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

On the way to the cinema we saw a diamond-studded (rhinestones, actually) Mercedez-Benz on display. It’s 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!
