Most of you haven’t seen me for a while, and here’s the Update for what I’ve been doing recently –
I actually stopped recreation basketball for 1,5 year, but then 2 months ago there was something like the linsanity and I started playing basketball again, thanks Jeremy Lin 林書豪! I had a lot of pleasure, until I rolled my ankle. I think I just wanted too much, it happens when you push yourself over the limitation of your body. Damn, that was a terrible feeling! Since then I tried to recover as soon as possible, that means no sport, going to Kan Sifu for medical treatment and stay home going up and down the stairs like a baby.
In the meanwhile I’ve been working on my International Marketing Management graduation thesis, and I have finally finished it! Now waiting for the feedback and presentation. Before graduation I have to pass my Spanish exam mid June.
aCreations is now working together with CIMCH Film group, and so i’m writing a Short Film script about stereotyping the Dutch from the perspective of the Chinese community which we will be producing this summer along with some other projects including Wudao Kung Fu short film and a Single Step 2.
Therefore I didn’t had the time to edit and upload the video’s I made before, like my trip to the Wudang Mountains, Hong Kong, Filming and so on..

This morning on air Dutch National TV Channel 1 (NEDERLAND 1) broadcasting this interview about our relationship as Kung Fu buddies with Koon Chan (Wudao Dragons).
I still remember in 2008, 5th of May. That day we went to Wageningen to promote Chinese Martial Arts. It is the Dutch national liberty day. There was a big festival going on. It is one of our first performances, and we never thought we’ll be broadcasted on Dutch National TV talking about Chinese Martial Arts. Now, the same day but 4 years later our interview on air. It is just so symbolic, just shows how interesting life is.
In the near future, I hope to share more and get more opportunities for TV program broadcasts. I will work hard and all support will be appreciated!
“Alex was negen toen hij de 15-jarige Koon leerde kennen op de Martial Arts opleiding. Nu vijftien jaar later vertellen ze over hun vriendschap, Chinese discipline en de liefde voor Martial Arts.”

We had the opening of the Wudao Kungfu lessons in our new gym studio @ Welgelegen sports centre. It is always exciting how many students are joining the class. You’re waiting in the studio and doing some warming up. Luckily while warming up another group of students came in. We’re hoping to encourage more women to participate in our training lesson. Down below, Vanessa made some nice pictures and video.
Wudao Kungfu makes the difference to bring authentic kungfu over in a modern interactive way. It is informative and fun. The regular lessons are given every week on Thursday eve.

This is the 2nd time we celebrate the Chinese New Year in Utrecht city at Rasa world cultural centre. I have been contributing to the programming and the participation of Wudao in this event. For the PR promotion of this event I made a Teaser video in 3 days. I think this is the first cooperation between Wudao & aCreations. I believe in the near future we will produce more and more creative arts together. During the filming process a lot of people stood by and were curious what we are doing at the ‘Oudegracht’ in Utrecht city. Some were filming us and taking pictures with us.
I was totally focused on the filming part, because I didn’t had enough time to prepare and had a just a few days to deliver the video. Everybody volunteered in this project, so it was hard to count on the attendance that day. But we make the best out of it and it had a great effect. Although the cold weather we still had fun together. I was worrying whether I could finish filming before the sun goes down. The day started with a bad news, a message that the lead actor couldn’t come, he was sick. So we changed a bit of the storyline and I stepped in to play a bigger part in the film. It is stressful because you want to focus on one thing rather than 2 different things, or 3, production, filming and acting. At the end we’re all satisfied and got positive reactions. I can go with it since it was a last minute project.
Come and join us @ utrecht Rasa, I am in the programming of this Chinese New Year event and will be performing Kung Fu and giving a workshop that day. Kung Fu panda will be there giving out lucky money! Don’t miss it 😀
This year we focus on the younger generation of Dutch Chinese society. Artists, musicians, filmmakers will show their work at Rasa Utrecht!
This evening I am having a live interview at CRTV Radio 21.00 in Amsterdam. There is an Chinese Songwriters event and then I will perform a Kungfu form for the opening. I wish everybody a happy Moonfestival and enjoy the time with your family and friends with the traditional Mooncake.

It is a fight of two Asians, very skilled martial arts pirates fighting for the treasure map at the Rotterdam’s pirate bay. It will be very crowded tomorrow, as the weather is fine with the sun shining at the bay. 10.000 of people are expected to come around.
During my google research for how to become a pirate, I am surprised that there is something like a ‘Pirate Day’ which is a international parodic holiday. This is celebrated on the 19th of September each year and everybody in the world should talk like a pirate. Aye Aye, Captain! Shut up, let’s fight! Ok, something like that.
Tomorrow I wanna go around talking like a pirate…got any more random pirate sayings?
So If you want a taste of some pirate, come to the pirates bay at Maritiem Museum this weekend and we’ll meet you right there at the upper deck of the Black Pearl.
You know what the worse nightmare for a pirate on a blind date is? a sunken chest with no booty
It was way too early this morning! But it was nice to see how a group of Chinese exchange students from all different cities in Holland set up a big show in Theater De Muze in Noordwijk to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The Chinese Embassy and local news were present. Unfortunately, I don’t have any video recorded, cuz the person overslept and then the other technician guy who promised me to do it forgot to record our Wu Dao Dragons show!! Nooooo, hopefully there will be some video footage online soon, there were lots of people filming and taking pictures.
