Homecomng Movie Gala Premiere + Party

Was feeling trilled to attend the Homecomng Gala Premiere.

A bubbling of ecstasy that keep me motivated in work.

Right after work, I headed down to Vivo City to meet my girlfriend, SY.

The cinema was already packed with huge crowds when we reached but we were still in time for the red carpet.

Introducing the casts:

The first 2 cast arrived. It’s Afdlin Shauki (as taxi driver) and Koe Yeet (as Mindy, Mark Lee’s daughter)

Coming up next is Huang Wenhong and Rebecca Lim (they are acting as husband and wife in the movie).

And right after them was Mark Lee and Lin Ru ping:

Lin Ru Ping as Jacelyn Tay’s mother and Mark Lee as Chef Daniel.

Last but not least, we had Jack Neo (Mother) and Ah Niu (Son):

This pair was so funny” Ah niu was saying that he was supposed to come with his mother but end up a guy beside him. So he asked Jack Neo where is his mother. Jack Neo’s answer was amusing: “Your mother you come and ask me!” Lol.

After that, the host invited all the casts up for lo hei session – toss up good fortune (:

The Yusheng being left behind.



All right, time to check in.

Once again, let me shared with you the detail of the movie:

Genre: Comedy

Director: Lee Thean-Jeen

Cast: Mark Lee, Jack Neo, A Niu, Afdlin Shauki, Jacelyn Tay, Huang Wenhong, Rebecca Lim, Koe Yeet, Liu Ling Ling

RunTime: 1 hr 30 mins


Synopsis: “Homecoming” is about three stories of three different individuals going home for Chinese New Year:

1) A major highlight of the movie is that Jack Neo, who will be cross-dressing on the big screen again after eleven years since “Liang Po Po The Movie” back in 1999. He will be playing mother to Ah Niu’s character, Karen Neo. She is bringing his son, Ah niu, back to KL for reunion dinner and matchmaking. During their journey back, a series of events occur…………………………………….


2) Mark Lee, the arrogant chef with the cantonese ascent, chased away all his workers (except Jacelyn Tay) and his daughter on the new year eve. How is he going to prepare the reunion dinner for the Minister without their help?

3) Newly wed Huang Wenhong and Rebecca Lim went back to KL to visit their parents on the new year eve with the intention to fly to Bali in the night to spend their new year there. How are they going to break this new to Wenhong’s mother, Liu LingLing?

***
The movie was indeed F-A-N-T-A-B-U-L-O-U-S.
It’s a nice collaberation between Singapore and Malaysia. Every single of them did fantabulously well. I loved the chapalang languages being used in the movie, it brings out the Singaporean style (Just like me, I loved using different language in my conversation.)
Mark Lee’s movies are always so amusing, it never failed to keep me entertained. Though this is a comedy movie, some of the scenes really touched my heart, shall not be a spoiler.
Jack Neo is equally good. Acting as a woman is not easy, he has to put on makeup and wig. This made me think of a NG scene where his hair wig dropped.
I have never realised the significance of reunion dinner. Every year, I’m just looking forward to the good food.
Reunion dinner is actually a time to bond with your family members where the entire family come together to celebrate this special festive. Not only that, every dish has its special meaning behind it:
Fish – 年年有魚
Fa cai (hair vegetable) – 發財
This year, reunion dinner will hold a new meaning to me ♥
***
Homecoming is definitely a must watch 贺岁电影 during Chinese New Year. It is suitable for all age, you can bring your family members to watch. The movie will be released on 3 February 2011. I will definitely recommend this to my family and friends.
Lets Laugh our way home ♥


The night doesn’t end after the movie, we were being invited to the post-party ♥

Off we go to party ♥

@ St. James Power Station.

Siying and I totally enjoyed. We were having a merry moment there, photos were the best way to express our feeling ♥



It’s definitely a nice, cosy and stylish place to chill.


The bar was playing homecoming soundtrack, totally dig the song after listening it again and again (:

Shortly after the quiz, the casts started to arrived:

Ah Niu, Koe Yeet, Rebecca Lim and Jack Neo.

The event was a great success. So now, it’s time to celebrate and party!!!

Jack Neo started off by singing 《笑著回家》the movie theme song. Super nice.

吃点亏吃点苦 告诉自己要忍住
我的家人比”舍人” 都重要
看得远看得开 心胸宽阔如大海
好事一个个自然排队来

心连心手拉手 狂风暴雨一同走
永远勇往直前风雨同舟
一颗心一份爱 只要绑紧在一块
笑着回家乐开怀

All right, that’s the end of my post. Remember to support HOMECOMING《笑着回家》 
年年回家, 今年笑着回家!

At the start of 2011

Hi everyone, Happy New Year to all ♥ It’s a brand new start and a new beginning for us, lets forget about all the unhappiess in 2010 and look forward to the future (:

How did you spend the day? Hope you guys are enjoying yourself.

This year, it has been a great start, another fun holiday for me. I was invited to Wei Li’s family chalet located at Changi.

Was raining endlessly the whole Saturday, I was pondering whether “to go” or “not to go”. In the end, I still went for it because i wouldn’t want to miss out the fun.
My causal outfit for the night. Tee + cardigan and short.

So I met YH and Rachel @ about 6.30pm at Tiong and headed to Tampines to meet Cherie. She had long reached before us as she finished her work at 5pm, which mean she had waited very very long. Thanks gal for being so patient with us ♥

After which, we took bus 29 to our destination.

Wei Li’s dad is an SAF officer so this place is specially cater for them (:

We reached them nearly at 8pm. There were quite a number of his family, relatives and neighbours over there.

So we went to find ourselves an empty brench at a corner near the beach where we can enjoy the breeze.

BBQ by Wei Li. The cheesy sausage sup! Wei Li kept on rumbling how sinful it is to eat all these. Lol. Seems like NS has changed him. Also, he has slimed down quite a lot!

Good company, good scenery and good food. I’m totally stress-less when with them, they made me forget all my unhappiness. I ♥ catching up. I love how we spent quality time together. I love how relax the night can be. And I love to have more gathering like this.

One by one, the guests had started to left. By 10pm, it’s only us and his family. Since they were no activities planned which could last us throughout the night, we were planning to leave. At 11, we started googling for the last bus and train, and night bus.

Cherie was so depressed, we missed the last bus. She was really tired after a day at work she needed sleep.

Since we were staying, so we asked Wei Li to plan the activities for the night to last us till the morning. So he gave us 4 options:

1. Changi Point see Ah Gua
2. Pub at Changi Pub
3. Sit down and wait for time to pass
4. Play cards or mahjong

*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*

I don’t know leh, playing 21 points is so boring. We stopped after a match. Mahjong ma, actually I loved playing it, but his dad was sleeping in the living room, it’s not a good idea to play too!
So we continued our neverending chat.

I love the ambience there ♥ Felt that I’m away from the city, so relaxing. If you are wondering where the stair lead you to? It leads you to the beach.

I ♥ taking pictures everywhere i go, a hobby that I picked up last year.

Since the night was still young, we decided to head over to Changi Point, if not we will all be falling asleep.


Intend to find the pub, but couldn’t see to find it. And we ended up walking to the jetty. They decided to use iphone to locate the place.

On our way, we saw a couple of Ah Guas. We only past by one, the others were a distance away from us. They were standing by the road, waiting to be hook up. Some will even wave to the cars that past by. Those cars slowly drove past but none stopped to give them a ride. I also noticed there is a hotel located nearby. Lol.

Finally, we found the pubs. They can be found at the end of a stretch of prata stalls. But we never step in. The atmosphere there seemed quite mature for us. YH was saying that the pubs looked like as if it was in Geylang, rather unsaved to drink at there.

Thus, we went to buy drinks from the provision shop instead. Settled ourselves with absolute vodka, cranberry drink and red bull.

And we happily strolled back to the chalet. We got a shocked when Wei Li’s mum was still up together with a guest. We had a feeling that she was waiting for us to return. Couldn’t let her spot the vodka, so rachel hid it inside her bag.
They were damn cute la. They took a empty bottle and transferred some Vodka content over, so that we can put the bottle on the table.

So we let the expert do the job:

First, pour in the vodka. Next, mix it with red bull.

Lets drink and be merry. There’s nothing better than a drink to spice up the night. Time checked: 2.34am.

We were all hungry again. Time to replenished. Ah, Cherie was tired already. We chat all the way from night to dawn. Was having goosebumps when YH was telling her story, kinda of eerie.

The vodka was damn strong, 40% alcohol content. I seriously cannot take much mix drink too, felt like dozing off! My head was a little giddy so i kept eating to keep myself awake.

We had another round of drink. This time with Cranberry. This was much better because more content of Cranberry.
They were totally drained out.

No photo of me was taken during the trip because my hair was totally in mess after a night! Felt like watching the sunrise before we leave but they intended to catch the first bus back to Tampines.


We left the chalet at about 6am and slowly walked to the bus stop.

We survived through the night with no sleep.

It was indeed a tiring day. So deprived of sleep that I doze for 5 hours.
