Getai veteran Wang Lei's storied life to be told in Web series

Entertainer Wang Lei started working at a young age to support the family. His father was a drunk who beat his mother. Wang later gambled and got heavily into debt. Today, he is a respected getai veteran who also acts in movies.  인터넷카지노

His storied life is the stuff of dramas. And now it is.

Wang, 57, will star in Lu Bian Ge Wang (When The Night Falls - The Story Of Wang Lei), a 10-part Hokkien and Mandarin series based on his life which debuts on the streaming platform Toggle on Aug 30. The series by film-maker Jack Neo's J Team Productions is directed and scripted by Ivan Ho, who co-wrote the hit movie Ah Boys To Men 3: Frogmen (2015).

The show was launched at a celebration of his 20 years in getai at Good Chance Popiah on Aug 24.

Turning up to support him were fellow getai artists as well as his family, including his wife, Madam Florence Cheng, 57, who has stood by him through thick and thin.

With her standing next to him, he said: "I'm really sorry that when we had a family, I sold off our first flat in Woodlands after losing everything. Secondly, we've been married for over 30 years but we don't have wedding rings because I lost those as well. Sorry once again."

 

At one point, he lost more than $200,000 and was left with only the air-conditioner at home.

Wang choked up at this point. He then added: "After letting her suffer for so many years, I just want her to enjoy life these few years."

Neo, 58, was also at the event. Wang calls him his benefactor as it was the director who gave him his break into film. 인터넷바카라

Wang had no lines in his first two movies and so he left the script for horror comedy Where Got Ghost? (2009) at home, until his son pointed out his character had plenty of dialogue.

He said: "I studied it all and memorised it thoroughly, and then on the day of filming, the director changed everything."

Filming a series based on his own life was quite an emotional experience and Wang said that he "cried a few times, especially thinking of how tough life was for my mother".

Asked if he had wanted to withhold anything from the screen, he told The Straits Times: "Everyone knows and I'm not afraid of how people will look at me. Everyday, I'm counselling people on Facebook on how to overcome gambling."

Lu Bian Ge Wang (When The Night Falls - The Story Of Wang Lei) debuts on the streaming platform Toggle on Aug 30.

    Ever tried finding a Mac to drive a 4k display? 카지노사이트주소 Yes I have a high powered 2015 MBP 15" and it does the job at 60hz with some shuddering if I get too speedy. The cheapest you can go is a Macbook with a bunch of adapters to get the image out and power in. No mini can do it with any self respect, I am putting together a mobile VC / meeting room display, 4k 65" and the simple fact is that it will be a Windows Pro device probably running on a Asus VivoMini UN65U. The mini and the pro are now both sad and expensive jokes. Maybe 2018 sees some love for the Mini, truly pathetic given the march of chipsets that have gone on by ignored by Apple that would all have dropped in to the existing chassis and totally fine port config. 바카라사이트주소 I investigated iOS, TVOS and Airplay, but I cannot find any info on Airplay 2 + Apple TV 4k allowing 4k streaming. Rather the opposite seems to be true. Neither iOS or TVOS offer external hardware VC solutions, nor could I find anything for Android. Far as I can tell for TVOS Apple is either preventing or discouraging any productivity or business apps. Android I would have thought otherwise but with the in TV versions of Android I read equally dismal reports. What would your effective 4k solution be? VC, Office docs and other meeting room basics.

    Is the "Apple slowing down older phones" a US thing? I ask because I have a 6s Plus, nearly 2 yrs old, and it does not seem slow to me. My kids use my old and battered 5s for games and YouTube, and while it is clearly slower than my 6s it is perfectly usable. Prior to this I used an old 4s, that to me remained perfectly fine until I upgraded. 인터넷바카라 Also, most of the people I know and work with have iPhones (a few even used a 3GS or whatever it was called, until about 6 months ago) and I have never heard any complaints of slow phones from them either. Yet forums and articles are full of slow iPhone stories. I hail from little Denmark, so I wonder if that’s anything to do with this discrepancy?

    Hey everyone, so I wrote a few posts here and here about my battery issues on the iPhone 6 earlier on in the year. I am glad to finally find out the truth, and I am not angry that Apple was throttling my phone without informing me. I'm just angry that they did it to cover up whatever was going wrong on their end. I say this with certainty because there was never a single update that resolved the battery performance, and in fact by iOS 11 the phone was unusable. As such, their claim that the updates were aimed at resolving battery life issues is moot. 온라인바카라 If you read my posts, I naively suspected the abysmal phone performance on low RAM here, yet in fact it was Apple behind the scenes covering up on poor energy-management software by bricking the whole phone experience. The whole time I was bothered by how consistently ineffectual the updates were. In fact in all my years of owning Apple products I had never experienced this. I know this is my experience and it may not be a typifying example of what iPhone 6 users went through but I think its good that this coming to light. Johny Ive's Apple really needs to step it up when it comes to software. Leave your comments and share your experiences.

    So I finally had a chance to check out the infamous unibrow phone today: the iPhone X. Here were my initial findings: 온라인카지노 THE GOOD As many have said, the notch isn't so bad in person. It does kind of blend in. It's alright, I guess, maybe I was just so used to looking at it in images so much over the past 6 months that it wasn't much of a shock. Interestingly enough, the ears weren't as crammed as I was expecting. I think Apple marketing actually blew it with the images, surprisingly. The status icons looked fine. The screen looked sharp and vibrant, but that was to be expected. What was a real joy to use was what I was excited about from the launch event: the multitasking. Boy was it sweet. It was almost the perfect implementation, one I've been wanting, and waiting for, in a phone forever. If they just took the Force Touch way from the previous iPhones, and allowed you to initialize it from the right edge, combine it with the X mechanism, that would be the ultimate. Having my thumb down so low to swipe between apps felt a bit awkward. As well, it was super smooth and fast. Felt very responsive and snappy to use. 온라인바카라 THE BAD Now for the bad. As expected, the side bezels were basically the same as any other iPhone. I even took a photo with the 7 next to it to compare, for all the naysayers. Bezelless my butt. The chrome frame was, pretty garish. Not sure if it was to hide the bezels in the marketing images or just a throwback to the older iPhones, but seriously? Chrome in 2017? C'mon people. If Samsung did this they would have been laughed off of the internet. Also, the combination of the all black front, chrome sides, and white back really didn't work. It felt messy and didn't balance or compliment each other at all. A jet black version would have blown this out of the water, especially with a black background. THE UGLY Well, as you can expect, I tried the X in landscape mode. 안전놀이터 So what did I find? Hey, remember all those people saying that 'nothing important happens on that side of the screen anyway'? This was literally the first 3 seconds of the first clip I opened. Yeah... And the individuals running don't move to the center of the screen. They keep running towards the phone on that side. Really sloppy built in promo video by Apple. And it just highlights the sloppy (software) design of the notch. I mean, why the hell couldn't have Apple just done this, when in landscape, via software? At least when watching a fullscreen video. I get they wanted to look different in a sea of all screen phones. I get the brand identity retention, I really do. I used to be in marketing, I know how this all works. But when Apple puts their brand over the user experience of watching a video/movie, that is bad. There is no way to slice that. All they had to do was implement some software to add 'side bezels' when watching a movie, and all would be well. Do people really need to know you are holding an iPhone X when you are watching a video? How often does that even happen? Most of the time you will probably be at home on your couch or in bed. The rest of the time you will be holding the phone in portrait, and the notch will be front and center. But forcing it to be there while watching a video, just to market yourself, is just hubris. Plain and simple. I hate to bring up this tired trope again, but I seriously doubt Jobs would have signed off on this.

    So I've been wondering what's been taking Apple so long to get Homepod ready for launch. Sure, it's almost here, but it was announced before the Google Home Max, for example, and the Max is already on the market (for all five people who wish to buy it). And they allowed themselves to miss the Christmas bumper sales opportunity. So why the delay? 온라인바카라 I THINK I HAVE AN IDEA WHY. But what are the options? 1 - Maybe Apple is just having a hard time organising the scale of production they need to meet expected demand. I find this unbelievable. Apple has the biggest clout of any company when it comes to organising their supply chain. They fund the building of whole new factories just so they can get exclusive access to the product for years to come, putting them ahead of others in the game. For Apple to be unable to organise their supply chain for such an (initially) niche new product that wouldn't even require huge numbers, is highly unlikely. After all, exclusivity (as we have seen with some version of the Watch and the iPhoneX) can be a strength when it comes to new products. It can't be supply chain and production issues. 온라인카지노 2 - Maybe Apple is just taking the time to 'perfect' the design. Nope. The outer design was set already at the announcement. Good quality speaker drivers are an established market that doesn't require redesigning for noticeable improvements in sound. Siri already listens on iPhone and Watch well enough for 'Hey Siri' commands. Google Home Max has shown that the 'tuning' of the sound to the speaker's environment doesn't take months to get right and could easily be corrected with later software updates, just like they did with 'portrait mode' on the iPhone. The delay has nothing to do with the design.   So why do it? Why miss out on the holiday season and let your only potential competitors pick up customers to the point that EVEN JEFF HAS AN ECHO NOW? What the hell is going on? And then I saw this article by Russell Brandom. The NSA's voice recognition tech has the potential to use these far-field microphones to track down individuals whenever they are nearby a device. It doesn't have to be theirs; it could just be somewhere in a house they are visiting or even just walking close to outside in an urban environment. 바카라사이트주소 THIS IS WHY APPLE'S HOMEPOD HAS TAKEN SO LONG GETTING TO US. Apple relies on the 'security' and 'privacy' narratives to differentiate themselves from the ad-reliant companies who (arguably) provide better services. Homepod has to be completely secure to maintain this narrative. And security is difficult, especially when you've got vulnerabilities like Meltdown and Spectre creeping around. So this has to be the reason. Maybe the Homepod delay wasn't directly due to Spectre and its derivatives (although I find the timing rather appropriate). Maybe there was some other software security issue that had to be plugged to make absolutely certain that Homepod was 'safe-enough' for Apple to start to allow people to put it into their homes. Either way, it certainly wasn't due to hardware and it certainly wasn't due to (normal) software; this was a security issue.

    I'm usually not a fan of most of Apples products, but sometimes you have to take a step back and admire some of the results of the decisions they make. 카지노사이트주소 AirPods... Well IMO they look goofy as hell, and probably fall out of half the populations ears. However MKBHD said in his last video...more so proclaimed he sees them everywhere, and they are most likely the most popular wireless earbuds. Is he right? I don't know. Maybe. However, it is pretty easy to notice AirPods from any other BT earbud. They stand out.  Most earbuds are black little things nestled in your ears that don't stand out to a normal person in public. They all look alike. But...not AirPods. They are white little sticks coming out of your ears. They scream, "Notice Me." It is probably why they don't even come in a black colorway. 온라인바카라 I'm sure Apple did this on purpose, because guess what? Tech YouTubers saying they are the most popular thing ever, is just free advertising. It'sactually kind of genius. Me personally, I don't see them much over here in California. But I think many folks maybe too embarrassed to just wearing walking around, because they look crazy. But then again all BT headsets kind of do.

    I'm talking about the integrated, universal TV experience. Where all your app channels get integrated into the TV view along with the ability to universal search movies, TV shows, episodes. Well, the dream died today when I tried to search for a VICE News episode and ATV(4th Gen) failed. It couldn't even bring up 'Vice News' by itself. Don't tell me that HBO NOW is at fault. 바카라사이트 https://support.apple.com/en-us/ht205321 HBO NOW is under supported apps for US region and it just Doesn't WORK. Sad! I'm starting to seriously think about getting the 4K Roku TV instead. The only thing I'd probably lose with that is iPhotos on my television, but I hardly look at that anyways.

    Chinese notch knock-offs vindicate Apple 온라인바카라 By now I’m sure we’ve all read Sam Byford’s excellent update out of MWC. That’s right: the notch is now a selling point. Kane’s supposed phone, the Leagoo S9 Pro, is just one of a tide of iPhone X clones that have swept through Mobile World Congress this week, often from little-known Chinese manufacturers competing to get products out as fast as possible. Oukitel. Doogee. Blackview. UleFone. OtOt. Ila. The list goes on — and it’s starting to include names more familiar to Western audiences. Asus’ new Zenfone 5 takes obvious notch inspiration from Apple’s latest phone, while leaks suggest that Huawei’s next flagship will follow a similar path. Add this to the list of innovations from Apple, initially panned by out-of-Touch Apple-haters, that went on to change the industry. 안전놀이터 There’s a clear pattern here that I want folks to remember Apple introduces a new innovation Anti-Apple crowd makes fun of innovation The rest of the industry follows Apple Anti-Apple crowd refuses to give Apple credit, goes on to cite obscure products from history as the true innovators. I can think of a couple of examples off the top of my head. Swipe to unlock. Samsung rips this off. Anti-Apple crowd gives credit to some obscure feature phone. Touch ID. Anti-Apple crowd write breathless posts about biometric security and how easy it is to hack. The industry adopts fingerprint scanners. The crowd gives credit to the obscure Motorola Atrix. iPhone 6 antenna lines. The crowd laughs at this. Chinese OEMs rip it off. The crowd gives credit to some HTC Phone. 바카라사이트 Headphone jack. We see what’s happening here. The crowd hasn’t accepted this one yet. But some have given credit to Motorola for dropping the headphone jack first. The notch. Rejected by the doubters. Embraced by the industry. And now in the comments for Sam’s post you see people giving credit to the Essential Phone for starting the trend. Can anyone think of other examples? You can get really into the minutia. Chinese companies rip off the shape and colors of iPhone apps and the crowd says "Apple didn’t invent rounded corners!" All of this feeds into why people don’t like green bubbles in their iMessage. Why Kanye West told an audience "If you don't got an iPhone, don't put it up. Only originals." It drags down the entire brand Why is it so hard for some folks to admit that Apple generally has pretty good design chops, and tends to be an industry leader?

    As a result of Jeff’s recent forum post on iMessage, I’ve been thinking a lot about iOS; more specifically, about its native applications. 인터넷카지노 My smartphone history consists of various different OSs and Phones [Palm Treo => iPhone 3G => Windows Phone(s) => Galaxy Note 5 => iPhone 7], so I’ve had a chance to try all of (what at the time was) the Big Three. In hindsight, my decision to leave any particular platform was fairly petty/short-sighted: I left Palm because I thought the iPhone was cooler I left the iPhone because I preferred Windows Phone’s (and/or Zune’s) design principles I left Windows Phone because I wanted Snapchat I left Android because of battery issues/how it managed background applications But there were only 2 reasons I switched back to an iPhone: Official battery case (a friend showed me his and I loved it) iMessage (a friend of mine is colorist AF and hates seeing green bubbles) 인터넷바카라 But aside from iMessage and the case, there is nothing that’s making me stick with iOS. I use a few of the other default apps (Phone, Weather, Clock, Photos, Camera, TestFlight*), but every platform has their own incarnation of those and I could survive without them. So my question to the forum is: what are the (other reasons) users stick with iOS? What applications do you prefer over the default iOS applications? And if you prefer certain iOS default apps, which ones and why are they better the competition offered in the App Store?

    Apple have got Facebook and Google in its sights with its latest move to make 'fingerprinting' and other tracking methods advertising companies use that bit harder. 바카라사이트 A lot harder actually. After the terrible press Facebook has cooked up for itself this year before and after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, this seems like great news for consumers: the freedom to roam the digital waves without a string tied to our surfboards latching us back to a bit advertising agency. But here's the thing: do we really want a web without tracking? 인터넷카지노 Tracking is what makes much online advertising so valuable for those wanting to target their products to the right audience. The more data the sellers of advertising space have on consumers, the more likely it is your products will come into contact with potential buyers. Without it, it's going to make reaching your potential customers much more difficult. We risk making the advertising that supports the sites we love completely irrelevant and ineffective - and thereby making advert-supported independent journalism financially unviable. 온라인바카라 And let's not beat around the bush here: where Apple leads, the rest of the industry follows. Restricting tracking IS going to impact Facebook and Google and the firms that rely on their targetted advertsing services. So, what do you think's going to happen? How does the internet move forward without tracking?

    Just wondering why there's no real coverage or conversation on today's massive DDoS attack? Having to scour the other parts of the 안전놀이터 Internet for news and updates which I would have expected The Verge to automatically and masterfully cover. #wassup

    My girlfriend was pretty excited that her new apartment had FiOS equipment pre-installed and has had the service for about a month. I knew that Verizon did some fairly pretty invasive stuff in terms of watching your activity while on their network, but she got a message threatening to suspend her internet if she continued to visit this website that hosts (to view but not download) videos, including copy-written content. Is there anyway around that stuff? 바카라사이트주소 Can you opt out like with some Comcast packages? Is using a VPN while she's online enough? I don't think anyone here is that into having company's monitor your browsing habits (although they all do to some extent) but I've never had AT&T or Comcast send me a notice for visiting RandomAnimeSiteC, let alone beam a threat directly into a blank tab when I open my computer. If there are any FiOS customers out there with other warnings about things you shouldn't try to do on Verizon's network, those comments would also be welcomed!

    Over the years, the number of stray cats has declined significantly. 인터넷바카라 This is due to residents who have worked tirelessly to trap these cats for neutering. They are always on the lookout for newly abandoned cats and kittens, and they also speak to cat owners to advise them on neutering and keeping the animals indoors. 카지노사이트 Some of these residents have registered with the Cat Welfare Society so that they can help town councils mediate in cases where there are complaints about cats. Such unseen and unsung residents ought to be recognised for their community effort by the town councils. 인터넷카지노 All these residents ask for is that fellow residents be tolerant of the presence of cats, also called community cats, and that the town councils do not pander to a minority of complaining residents by culling these cats. As our little island gets rapidly concretised, such community cats add a softness to the harshness of our environment.

    I AM saddened that the Little India riot on Sunday has attracted so much attention worldwide (“Foreign media shocked, notes rising tensions here”; Tuesday). 카지노사이트주소 For more than 40 years, Singapore has been a peaceful place for people from all walks of life to live in, work and play. The latest incident does not do justice to the efforts of the Government to foster close interaction and integration between Singaporeans and foreigners. Most Singaporeans welcome foreigners to live and work here, and we expect them to adapt to our way of life. So, the culprits who caused wilful damage in Little India should be dealt with severely and all necessary measures put in place to prevent a repeat of such incidents. Singaporeans should avoid stereotyping and negative perceptions of foreigners who come to live and work among them. Rightly or wrongly, we are aware of the differences between “us” and “them”. However, “us” and “them” does not have to mean “us” versus “them”. As adults, we should be better able to deal with human diversity. 바카라사이트주소       Those opposed to immigration and the influx of foreign labour see it as legitimate to fear the economic and social costs arising from the presence of large numbers of foreigners here. While some of these perceptions may appear justifiable, we must realise that the overwhelming majority of foreigners in our midst are hard-working, peace-loving and law-abiding. Foreign workers sacrifice a lot to come here to help in our infrastructure development, giving us roads and beautiful homes. Understandably, our image as a peaceful nation has been affected by the riot. So it is imperative that we should all help in ensuring that there is no repeat.
