I think I have suddenly become a paparazzi or crazy stalker for showbiz celebrities! My recent coffee date with Actor Fai Chen had progressed into going to see his next filming shoot which was held at the Endah Parade in Sri Petaling. I dragged my wife along to that half-dead shopping mall as we had to collect the leftover breads to feed the homeless later that night.
When I arrived on the 3rd floor, Fai Chen smiled and welcomed me with cheeky words - "Does this place reminds you of the earlier days of your career?" His statement gave me a chilly surprise as that happened more than 15 years ago and he still remembered vividly. To cut my granny stories short, that shopping mall was launched by the developer who had engaged the best Property Advertising Agency from Hong Kong to handle their launching project which was a 100% sell out. That advertising agency was owned by the comedy actor Stephen Chow's best buddy - HKG Canto-Pop singer & actor Eric Kot Man Fai. Soon after, he was invited by the happy developer to set up a branch in Kuala Lumpur to handle all their future projects. Fast forward, I was being head-hunted as I had the exact long string of TV Post Production experience which all those Hong Kong bosses wanted. It was such a very bitter sweet agency yet I lasted for over 10 years there.
That night I met a fellow famous and very talented young actor Kenny Gan at the set. He is only 32 years old yet he holds amazing credentials in his brilliant acting career on stage, TV commercials and movie screens besides being producers for many movies. I am honoured that I will be having coffee with him this evening to catch up some latest updates. Yes, I repeat this evening!

He made the above short movie some years ago and I watched it. It is a story about himself losing his memory and how his loved one had to suffer by watching him deteriorate. It made me cry rivers of tears to recall how my late father had suffered the worst dementia and could not remember himself & his family. It was so painful as my father was feeling lost, confused and frustrated. Adoi! What a movie! I would give Kenny Gan 5 Academy Awards for breaking my heart into pieces!!
