Coffee Date with Actor Kenny Gan

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!!

    1. Honestly he is very charming and radiates a good aura. Being a good & talented actor, he would know how to easily transform his looks to suit the mood and occasion. He is definitely photogenic for the screen and I believe the film directors knew how to capture the best angles.

    1. Thank you very much for your kind words Saito-San.
      It was just coincidence that left overs were given to me every week and I had to pass on to feed the hungry and homeless people. I noticed that the homeless people in Tokyo are a bit different from our local ones.

  5. So nice ah you rubbing shoulders with celebrities. Is he as tall as you? Otherwise instead of rubbing shoulders you'll be rubbing his ears :D

    Great job on feeding the homeless with the leftover bread.

    1. LOL! I think Kenny would laugh if he ever reads this comment.

      I think I am too tall and have leg issues inside aeroplane. This actor has good average height that could pair off well with our local actresses.

      If Ayden could bake or cook something nice for the homeless, I would gladly go and distribute too.

    1. I don't think I am popular with them. I am just meeting them like old friends and thought that I should blog about acting and movie making so that it could inspire many young readers who have potential to act on stage or movies.

    1. Hello!! You need to watch lesser Thai movies and porno sites to support our local ones. This famous actor and film producer's Chinese name is 颜子斌...
      Someday you will see him working together with Zhang Yimou and Chen Kaige. You know my words always come true.

  14. I thought the short movie would be in Chinese but it wasn't, so I watched it. I saw a Korean movie recently that had about the same story line, the only difference was that the ending was sad. :'(

    1. I think many movies have scripts of actors losing their memory since the movie "Rain Man" where Dustin Hoffman was mentally challenged too.

    1. I don't expect a celebrity like you to watch movies! We are watching you instead. Ha ha.

      This Kenny is a Malaysian and looks like a Korean who would appear in China's big screens someday. just stay tuned.

  17. Such warm hearts you and your wife have, TM, to collect breads for the homeless. God bless you! I'm not familiar with this actor but that's only because I only watch stuff like Superman, Deadpool, Wonder Woman ...lol. I like my movies light-hearted and non-scary.

    1. I believe that all these younger actors and actresses have very young crowd followers. We uncles and aunties normally watch soap drama series that have many family squabbles. I am such a busy body who love to watch family quarrels.

      You can cook some warm food and pass to this Kelana Jaya's church team which helps me to feed the homeless every weekend.
