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.

    I found this article off of Gizmodo today, called "Use This Tool to See If Your Name Was Used to Support Net Neutrality Repeal," and was interested to see if mine was. While I am very much in favor of Net Neutrality, 인터넷카지노 I never posted any comment on the orginal proposal, so any use of my name would be false. So I clicked the link, which took me to this page. I put in my name and, lo-and-behold, comments came up. Actually, seven comments came up. One of them didn't have any trace of my name in it (weird, but whatever), and another seemed to be from a real person who just shared my name (bad grammar, misspellings, "u" for "you" and such, etc.), so those two passed my cursory examination. 인터넷바카라 It was the other 5 comments that used my exact name (and, for one of them, my address) and several pre-generated variations of anti-NN comments that made me VERY angry. Now, I somewhat understand; my name is remarkably close to a very commonly used "filler" name (a variation that is similar in nature to "Jon Smith" and "John Smith"), so it's not that far-fetched that they just used variations on that name. But 5 times? Come on, that's obscene. I'm a pretty internet-active citizen, so it makes sense that my name would be a pretty easy choice, but it's not right. 카지노사이트 I urge you to check it out, put your name in to see if it's been used fraudulently, and to report usage. If you don't know anything about Net Neutrality, please go learn, either from my post from earlier this year, or the hundreds of professionalvideos and articles. It's a really big deal, so please keep educated. Then go call your local officials to demand answers as to why, in a month, we might be living in a completely different internet.

    I'm sure most of us have heard about the mission to save the 12 Thai boys and their coach who were trapped in a cave. It's been in the headlines for a couple weeks. What's also grabbed headlines is Musk's attempt to have his team engineer a sub that could help the divers save the boys and the coach. 온라인바카라 What's also grabbed headlines is Musk's attempt to have his team engineer a sub that could help the divers save the boys and the coach. First, the rescue chief calls Musk's sub impractical. In response, Musk questions the rescue chiefs knowledge on the matter. This is rude and shouldn't have been done, but not the end of the world. Frankly, he should have just provided proof that his sub is practical and would have been capable of saving the 12 children and the coach. 카지노사이트주소 Then, because a diver and cave explorer (no he didn't dive this time, but offered expertise on the cave's structure and mapping) had the audacity to call Musk's sub a PR stunt and told him to "stick it where it hurts", he responds by calling the diver a pedo. You cannot make this stuff up. I think the diver had some harsh words for Musk, who once again could have simply set the record straight without resorting to libel. Now he's opened himself up to a lawsuit. 바카라사이트주소 This is obviously disturbing behavior from a CEO of multiple companies. I'm not sure how anyone can read what he tweeted and still defend him. The best thing he can do at this point is to apologize and hand his Twitter account over to a PR team. Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company would benefit from having a focused CEO, not one that's unhinged on Twitter. Edited to add the diver's unmentioned childish comment.

    The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) takes a serious view of such offences. 인터넷바카라 We adopt a multi-pronged approach through deterrent laws, stringent border checks as well as inland enforcement. We regularly conduct raids (an average of more than 100 monthly) targeted at immigration offenders, harbourers and employers of immigration offenders.  We collaborate closely with agencies such as the Singapore Police Force and the Ministry of Manpower in our enforcement efforts. 카지노사이트 The public can play a part by not offering employment or shelter to immigration offenders.   Home owners should exercise due diligence in checking the status of their foreign tenants, before signing or renewing their tenancy agreements. They should also check if their tenant has sublet rooms illegally. Members of the public with information on immigration offenders can report via the ICA website or call 1800-391-6150. Any information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence. Under the Immigration Act (Cap 133), the penalties for overstaying or illegal entry are a jail term of up to six months plus a minimum of three strokes of the cane. 온라인카지노 If anyone is found guilty of recklessly or knowingly harbouring overstayers or illegal immigrants, he may be sentenced to a jail term of between six months and two years and a fine of up to $6,000. If a person is found guilty of negligently harbouring overstayers or illegal immigrants, he may be sentenced to a jail term of up to 12 months, or a fine of up to $6,000, or both.

    In January, I had requested a copy of the estimated payout from the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Life scheme from the age of 65 to 70. 카지노사이트주소 Last month, I again wrote to the CPF Board for an update of the estimated payout. Since interest would have accrued, I was curious to know what the new increased payout would be. To my horror, the new estimated payout amount was lower than that in January. 바카라사이트주소 My immediate thought was that there might have been an unauthorised withdrawal from my CPF Retirement Account (RA). I logged in to my CPF account, and, to my relief, found that the amount in the RA remained untouched. Feeling puzzled as to why the payout was lower when the RA amount remained the same (without the interest accrued), I wrote to the CPF Board for clarification. After a few days, a CPF staff member called and explained that the computation method used for the payout in the month of January was different from the one used in July. But he could not explain why, as the computation was carried out by a different department. 안전놀이터 I hope that the CPF Board can be more transparent and consistent in the processing of our CPF Life payouts. It is very difficult for a layman to accept that the same amount in the RA will give a lesser payout as time passes. This defieslogic. There is interest accrued as time goes by, and so the payout should be more (regardless of how insignificant it is).

    As a father of three, I can imagine the anger and frustration felt by his parents, in particular his mother who rightfully pointed out that the punishment should serve as a deterrent for the sake of future full-time national servicemen (NSFs) who may be subject to similar treatment. 온라인카지노 What confounds me is the lack of common sense on the part of the commanders who chose to conduct a run a day before the fast march in the belief that it would "enhance fitness and foster cohesion". In order to perform well in physically strenuous activities, we need sufficient rest. In this case, not only did they conduct a run the day before but they also chose to spot check the soldiers after lights out. Based on a few soldiers using their phones, the whole platoon was punished. 온라인카지노   If the commander felt the need to punish them, couldn't the punishment have been meted out after the fast march? Again, common sense was lacking. The next question is, was the punishment in proportion to the so-called offence. Push-ups, crunches, sprints, bear crawls and leopard crawls done in the middle of the night are cruel and unnecessary punishment. This punishment, carried out the night before the fast march, would have added to the physical, mental and emotional stress of the soldiers. Although the Committee of Inquiry (COI) reports that the soldiers had six hours and 15 minutes of sleep, this is based on the time they went to bed after the punishment. No one knows how long they took to fall asleep and how many of them actually had restful sleep after undergoing such punishment. 카지노사이트 Although the COI seems to focus on other factors, including measures to prevent heat injuries and reduce the delay in getting medical attention, the fact remains that CFC Lee's death was mostly caused by the irresponsible and unprofessional behaviour of his commanders. We need to send a strong message to those who would perpetrate such offences that the law will come down very hard on them.

    The Committee of Inquiry report on Corporal First Class (CFC) Dave Lee Han Xuan's death raises some disturbing questions regarding the safety procedures and treatment of heatstroke in the Singapore Armed Forces. 카지노사이트주소 First, why was full-time national serviceman (NSF) Lee treated for physical exhaustion instead of heatstroke after his fast march? Surely it would have been easier to treat it as the latter first and downgrade it otherwise. Next, why was his platoon subjected to physical punishment the same night after a run? 바카라사이트주소 In Singapore's hot weather, CFC Lee and his fellow soldiers had to undergo three physiologically demanding activities in less than 24 hours. Finally, mistake upon error ultimately led to the death of CFC Lee. 안전놀이터 Where were the unit's senior commanders and why didn't anyone intervene on the troops' behalf to stop this or at least ensure there were sufficient safety measures in place?

    At the same time, Dr Yik's letter should encourage Singaporeans to think carefully about the role that opposition parties should play in our society. 카지노사이트 Singaporeans will not be content with just having a voice. They need a plan and want to see a clear direction. Banners and slogans will neither address the concerns of Singaporeans nor fix the country's problems. We have to recognise that real, meaningful change is not made from condensing complex and difficult national problems into simple political catchphrases. 온라인카지노 Instead, it is brought about by addressing these problems directly and solving them through sound policies and competent governance.   Yes, lending an ear to the people is undeniably important - and leaders of all stripes should strive to do so. But the work does not end there. Rather, it is only the beginning: Having heard the people, actions have to be taken promptly. Leaders from opposition parties should not be telling people only about "what went wrong". They should also tell Singaporeans "what to do" and, more importantly, "how to do it". Words and resolutions without solutions are nothing more than castles in the air. 온라인바카라 Opposition parties should be less a political force to oppose than a constructive bloc to propose new and innovative solutions to remedy the country's problems. Major pieces of a constructive political or governance architecture always comprise strong leadership and clear direction. They are never built upon mere rhetoric and pithy talk. The last thing that Singaporeans would want is a political landscape dabbed by specks of parochial party interests and political bickering devoid of form and meaning. Despite the fact that a coalition of opposition parties may be in the making, it still comes down to having policies and proposals for real, meaningful change to make the difference.

    I do not deny that there have been attempts to encourage re-employment. 바카라사이트 However, the glacial pace of progress has cast doubts on whether these have really been effective or supportive. In addition, despite the efforts of agencies advocating fair employment and non-discriminatory employment, unfair practices exist with very little recourse for the mature employee. For example, despite an employee doing exactly the same job, there are employers that extract a pay cut the moment that employee crosses a certain age - and the guidelines do not prohibit it. 인터넷카지노 It is in the national interest that re-employment efforts be given some teeth without further delay.   The measures thus far have been more business-friendly than fair. As corporate citizens, businesses have a responsibility to ensure that willing, able-bodied Singaporeans are employed. This has become more pressing given our ageing population. Furthermore, it is no encouragement that despite the longstanding tripartite engagement and despite the efforts of Cabinet ministers helming the NTUC, employers still have to be encouraged to re-employ fairly. 인터넷바카라 It has been at least a decade since re-employment was mooted. Either the Government is being too soft on employers or the employers are not taking the Government seriously.

    I agree with Mr Paul Chan Poh Hoi that the design of our social and family development policies should be based on hard evidence, rather than stereotypes, generalisations and misconceptions. 카지노사이트주소 Unfortunately, a framework that advocates universal benefits without any conditions seems a tad simplistic and naive as it does not take into account the vagaries of human nature. Like Mr Chan, I am all for assisting those who are truly in need, including through a programme of guided and assisted self-reliance. But, it is just as important for us to acknowledge that not all hardship cases occur because of events beyond an individual's control. Hard evidence from some cases do point to poor choices as well as a penchant for free-ridership and a crutch mentality. 안전놀이터 It does not mean that help should not be rendered to such individuals or families. But it certainly means that help should not be dished out to them unconditionally and indefinitely.   What isa disservice to "fellow Singaporeans who are struggling daily with harsh realities in one of the world's richest city states" is a system that hands out grants indiscriminately, especially when such public funds could be channelled to those most in need. 바카라사이트주소  The sooner "bleeding heart liberals" eschew the melodramatic stereotyping of citizens in distress as mere victims of the system who are doing their utmost to make ends meet, the more credible their cause will be.

    Whether 17-year-old Ben Davis should be granted national service deferment to pursue what is deemed by some to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop a football career with English Premier League side Fulham has raised different perspectives among Singaporeans. 바카라사이트주소 I am disappointed to hear Ben is playing as an English national for the football club despite his Singaporean citizenship. The family was also non-committal about a possible return date, and made it dependent on whether his contract would be renewed. Deferring an individual on these grounds would be very unfair to those who have had to forego similar distinguished opportunities in order to dutifully serve NS. 안전놀이터 If NS is necessary to ensure Singapore's continued peace and prosperity, then the principles of national security, universality and equity that underpin NS must not be compromised. My family and I had the opportunity to watch the National Day Parade preview last weekend.   More than a parade and a show, it was a strong symbol of what the past and present generations of servicemen continue to defend - Singapore's freedom and sovereignty. 바카라사이트 A strict adherence to the said principles is why we can commit to NS, and why NS has continued to be the backbone of our defence since the early years of our independence. It is one of the reasons why we have been able to celebrate Singapore's National Day year after year, for the last 53 years.

    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.
