Premiere ‘A Single Step’

This is it, here it is. After a very intensive period of filmmaking, planning and production. It was a difficult time for all the troubles we had gone through. But at the end, I’m proud and excited to see my first short film on the big screen.

So many of you came to see the short film, despite the delay caused by the disastrous A2 traffic jam I’m glad that you’ve still made it, really proud of you guys! Your support means so much to me that money can’t buy. I tried my best to make the best out of the little time and budget we had, but the most important, with a good heart.

What a pity that not everyone were there for the group picture, some left earlier.

In this occasion, I would like to thank you all who came to the CinemAsia Film Festival for the premiere of A Single Step and everybody who assisted me during the filming process.

In special Suhan Wong.

Thank you for the lovely flowers and the wine   =)

CinemAsia Film Festival Opening Ceremony

CinemAsia Film Festival 2010

This is the 4th edition of CinemAsia Film Festival in Amsterdam. I was invited for the opening ceremony with the premiere of ‘Dream Home’. When I entered the theater, I heard my name so I was like what’s going on. But it was the announcement of the directors of the FilmLab Shorts. Then festival director, Doris Yeung, gave a speech and introduced the different themes. I didn’t knew what kind of  film Dream Home is. I thought a regular drama film or something. So I was quite shocked of the opening scene. It was just the opening, and it was getting more violent. The effects were so damn realistic. Mandy was so excited. Not my thing. Another girl next to me covered her eyes with her hands. But she didn’t screamed =P

After watching Josie Ho as a killing machine, we went downstairs and tried to open the miniature house with the key we had. The price is 2 tickets to Hong kong! Susan was right after me and . . .click! Wow! The door just popped open and she screamed and everybody was looking, the camera was rolling. Amazing! I’m so happy for her. We took some photos and I think she couldn’t sleep that night.

The Ketelhuis was decorated in the sphere of ‘Dream home style’. It made me feel like Halloween. Good promotion of the premiere film! We had a drink and some snack, oh ya the snacks were horrible, sliced fingers with ketchup haha! We had a lot of fun taking pictures and I had a chat with some peeps around there like Dutch-Chinese actor Aaron Wan, and also the producer/artist Conroy Chan. It was fun talking with them!

Check out my album for more photos!

Opening of Cinemasia at the ketelhuis 2010


Congratulations was the message, Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah 😀

I didn’t noticed by myself but it was Xin who let me know that I’ve been selected. I checked the website of Cinemasia and yesh, it confirmed. My heartbeat increased immediately. I was so excited, that I couldn’t  think clear for a couple of hours, I felt the nerves even more than before a performance. The feeling was like a butterfly in your stomach.

My friends were excited for the announcement too, they asked me several times if I have heard from them or not. But I thought just let it be, don’t want to stress for it. So didn’t checked my mail continuously. The happiness came from inside out. I was smiling even when I slept 😀

I need to launch the website for aCreations as soon as possible. But .com & .nl is already occupied 🙁  So we need to find another alternative. We’ve put a Poll online see:

Tomorrow I have the introduction in Amsterdam, exciting!

A very normal but sunny saturday noon turns out to a very special day

A very normal but sunny saturday noon turns out to a very special day

After the Chinese school I went to ‘Wok to Go’ to visit Esther and have a brunch with Mandy and Yalen. But after half an hour Yalen still didn’t arrived. We couldn’t stand the hunger any longer so we decided to have a brunch at the Subway. I ordered a Chicken Teriyaki sandwich for the first time and it was tasty! Then Yalen arrived and he ordered a sandwich and shared with me because I was still hungry (so nice). After a bite I spit out the sandwich with the pepper! It is that spicy! Or I’m not a good spicy eater . . We had a good laugh and walked by the ‘Australian’, the ice-cream parlor. So we decided to buy ice-cream. It was a sunny midday and crowded in the ice-cream parlor. I ordered Straciatella and Cocos flavor, then the cashier forgot whether she gave the change or not, and I confirmed she did. While eating my ice-cream I was wondering how she could forget it and then Yalen said: ‘Why not, last time I received 10 euro’s of double change. ‘ Unluckily a girl next to me was the victim. I spit out the ice-cream right in her face, I couldn’t stop laughing on the ground and she was speechless and especially the cashier was like 😮 Yalen was laughing loudly with his mouth full of ice. So I apologized and we got away from the situation and we had our time. I felt really sorry for the girl but we really couldn’t stop laughing at all.

Then we arrived at the Wushu Team Utrecht gym court. Because of the sunny weather, they were training outside at the playground. Then I received a phone call that I have made to the finals with my synopsis for the entries of Cinemasia Filmlab Film Festival Contest and that they were expecting me at the interview in Amsterdam right now. But I didn’t check my mail the day before so I wasn’t aware of it. I was a bit surprised and so we get in the car but in front of us they were practicing Kung Fu, so we drove slowly forward and we got help from Ken and it was like parting a sea of people so that we could move out and we rushed home for the interview via Skype video-call. Of course I was quite happy and a bit nervous because I didn’t prepared for the interview. But I just told what I thought and hopefully they understood me.
