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."

    The boxing match between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul on Saturday (Aug 25) was set to be, at least according to the hype, " the biggest event in internet history ". But in the end, it may have all been the prequel to another event, as the main fight ended in a draw in front of 20,000 people at the Manchester Arena. 온라인바카라 Online, the fight was watched by millions, both on the official pay-per-view YouTube channel, and on bootleg livestreams on other platforms. Neither of the men are professional boxers, having earned their fame for the videos they post on YouTube. KSI, real name Olajide William "JJ" Olatunji, has more than 19 million subscribers. He initially shot to internet fame with videos of him playing Fifa video games. Logan Paul was one of the breakout stars from Vine, a now defunct social media app on which users posted humorous six-second videos. Each comes with his share of controversies. In January, 23-year-old Paul posted a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim , while KSI, 25, was accused of making sexist comments in his earlier videos . Both apologised in the aftermath of each case. Appropriately enough, the boxing event too was contentious. The British Boxing Board of Control put out a statement ahead of the match distancing itself from the event: "Neithe r individual is licensed by the BBBBofC and the BBBofC does not participate in such events." 바카라사이트주소    Among the fans who made it to the arena were 22-year-olds Luke Robinson and Laura Busby, both from Scunthorpe. "I've never been to a boxing match before, but we're massive KSI fans, so we thought we'd come," said Busby. "It's a really big deal for KSI," said Robinson. "It's not just a boxing match - it's personal." The encounter in the ring seemed to be important to Paul too. Referring to the uproar over the incident in January, he thanked KSI and said: "You saved my career." The match had all the trappings of a professional boxing event, from the dramatic walkouts to the trash talk. Renowned ring announcer Michael Buffer even announced the main card with his trademark: "Let's get ready to rrrrrumble!" This is the second time two YouTubers have fought in a white-collar match, in a phenomenon that aims to monetise online feuds between internet celebrities. Over the last few months, KSI and Paul have been curating the drama of their feud through social media. Adding to the soap opera, their brothers, Jake and Deji, also fought on the undercard, with Jae emerging victorious. 카지노사이트 But after six evenly fought rounds, the judges scored a draw - meaning the drama will be extended to a rematch already scheduled for February. Interviewed after the fight, KSI said: "Let's do that again, that was fun. Holy shit." Paul, too, seemed to have enjoyed the experience: "I think it's what the people want. Let's give them a motherf***ing rematch! … I feel like I won that fight, but it doesn't matter. What happened happened. The rematch is going to be f***ing crazy." It's unclear exactly how much money the participants will make, but between livestreams, ticket sales, merchandise and the promise of a repeat next year, it's likely to be a small fortune.

    In the hilly region of Champagne in eastern France, winegrowers are bringing in grapes early this year for a harvest they expect to be one of the best in a decade. 바카라사이트주소 The harvest began at the end of August for most vineyards instead of the usual September after a rainy winter and a summer heat -wave look set to yield a bumper crop and high-quality bubbly. Champagne wines are expected to see a sharp rise in production, up 56 per cent from last year to 3.5 million hectolitres, after several years of unsatisfying crops due to bad weather. "The last few years have been tough, this year is expected to be exceptionally good so we are very happy," said the president of Champagne winegrowers' union, Maxime Toubart. While most Champagne winegrowers are celebrating an exceptional harvest, others see the beginning of long-term change in the region. Winegrower Eric Rodez, who runs his own vineyards and operates a 1936-built traditional press, is convinced climate change is making earlier harvests the norm.   "Because of climate change, we have to be prepared to regularly harvest in August," Rodez said, noting that starting earlier is the only way to keep the uniqueness of the Champagne wine, produced with grapes that cannot be too ripe. The trend has already emerged over the last decade with three harvests starting in August rather than September. Thirty years ago, harvests in October were not unheard of. According to Toubart and the Champagne winegrowers' union, the more than 15,000 Champagne winegrowers will likely harvest between 13,000 and 16,000kg of grapes per hectare. 인터넷바카라 That leaves a comfortable margin for producers to use only the best grapes and rebuild reserves used up in recent years since the industry has agreed this year to bring 10,800kg per hectare to market. "We have never experienced this before in the Champagne region, in terms of quantity and quality," said Jean-Marie Barillere, president of the Champagne houses' union. "This will enable us to put into cellar amazing wines which will be on the market in three years," he added. Each year, 310 million bottles of French Champagne - whose geographic designation is strictly controlled as a brand - are sold worldwide while more than a billion are stored in cellars waiting for the right moment to be savoured.

    The story: Four-year-old Kun (Moka Kamishiraishi) is jealous when his baby sister Mirai arrives and monopolises their parents' attention. Then he meets a grown-up schoolgirl Mirai (Haru Kuroki), who calls him "big brother" and asks him not to bully her. Kun also meets a mysterious former prince, his mother as a child and his grandfather as a young man. He learns about the past and gets a glimpse of the future. 카지노사이트 Japan's Mamoru Hosoda is the director, and sometimes writer, of several lauded anime hits. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006) features a time-travelling schoolgirl; Wolf Children (2012) is about a mother raising her two half-human half-wolf children; and The Boy And The Beast (2015) dwells on the relationship between a powerful beast and his human disciple. At first, Mirai seems to be a departure from his previous fare as it is very much rooted in everyday life. Kun's mother goes back to work after having Mirai and his architect father tries to balance working from home with taking care of the household.   Hosoda has an eye for realistic details, from the sombre expression on baby Mirai's face to the way Kun sleeps (there's a reason why yoga has a Child's Pose). Thematically though, the film-maker is back on familiar ground as he explores what it means to be family. The point of view is a fresh one and the gentle family drama is a non-condescending and non-cutesy examination of a toddler's emotional life. The fantasy element so prevalent in his past works is not completely absent; after all, the Japanese title is Mirai No Mirai, which means Mirai Of The Future. Keeping away the ceremonial dolls properly and promptly after Hinamatsuri, or Girls' Day, becomes an entire adventure that involves Kun, future Mirai and the mysterious prince. 인터넷카지노 But the fantasy has been given a twist, one that is perfectly tailored for the young protagonist here. Is what we are seeing merely imaginative play on Kun's part? Or is there more to his flights of fancy since he is unlikely to know of his mother's and grandfather's pasts in such detail? The question is not definitively answered but what matters is that Hosoda delves into the sometimes chaotic world of a four-year-old with care and respect.

    Shoppers in Mexico City's Argentina Market got an unexpected dose of culture last Saturday (Aug 25) when they were treated to Spanish composer Pablo Sorozabal's opera La Tabernera Del Puerto. 안전놀이터 The impromptu performance by a troupe of four singers was part of a programme called Opera En El Mercado, which aims to take classical music to everyday places, the Associated Press (AP) reported. From June to November, performers will pop up to sing in many of the city's 300 food halls and 195 metro stations. Last Saturday's performers, clad in T-shirts and aprons, included music therapist Lydia Rendon, who told AP: "This is where our humanity connects - the food, the smells, the flavours - and it's even better with music." Another member of the troupe is also a market vendor. Mr Franciso Pedraza, 50, who sells shoes near the Basilica Of Guadalupe, serenaded the crowd with his strong tenor voice. Trained in opera from age 16 to 30, Mr Pedraza auditioned to join the roving opera troupe when it was doing a sound check at his market in June.   He told AP: "The voice is an instrument that you have to exercise continuously to always maintain the same range." 온라인카지노 Mr Juan Carlos Diaz, coordinator of the community cultural action programme for Mexico's national fine arts institute, said he is planning more impromptu operas next year. The programme is reminiscent of last month's effort by a Mexican theatre company, Ardentia, to bring cheer to frustrated drivers on Mexico City's congested roads. Tutu-clad dancers, twirling and twisting with their chins held high, presented 58-second shows - the duration of a traffic light - on the streets of the city. The performances ranged from ballet classics like Swan Lake and The Nutcracker to Michael Jackson's Rock With Me, reverberating from a boombox plugged into an iPod.

    British performer and choreographer Lindsay Kemp died suddenly last Friday (Aug 24) in Livorno, a port city in Italy's Tuscany. He was 80. 온라인카지노 The artist was known for his brilliant and subversive performances, as well as for being a mentor to famed English singer Kate Bush and the late acclaimed star David Bowie, the Guardian reported on Sunday. David Haughton, a close friend and collaborator of Kemp's for 45 years, told BBC News that Kemp had been working up until his sudden death, and called the death "a huge shock". "But if it had to happen, this was the best way. He was in a very good period - he had been working and dancing. He had no illness, he was with friends," he said. Haughton said that Kemp had reported feeling ill and then was "gone" a minute and a half later.   Some Singaporeans may remember him for his version of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Kallang Theatre more than two decades ago. The rendition shocked audiences here with its avant-garde use of nudity and sex play. A glowing review dated June 25, 1992, in The Straits Times nonetheless called the production "beguiling", and the use of nudity "integral to the spirit of the performance". Kemp, then 54, played the character of Puck, a mischievous and clever sprite in Shakespeare's play. Kemp was born May 3, 1938, near Liverpool, England. He found a passion for dance at an early age, and after watching the Ballet Rambert company perform, went to London to audition at the age of 17. After studying under expressionist dancer Hilde Holger and French mime Marcel Marceau, he formed his own dance company in the 1960s. 바카라사이트 He developed his own distinctively camp style, combining different elements of mime, dance and British punk rock. In 1972, he staged Bowie's famous Ziggy Stardust concerts in London, and then left Britain for Spain and Italy in the late 1970s. Kemp had been rehearsing with students, preparing for a tour of Italy and writing his memoirs before his death. British actor and writer Nicholas Pegg said on Twitter last Saturday that Kemp was "one of life's originals". "An artist to the tips of his fingers, a mentor and inspiration for titans... a prodigiously talented performer, and a truly delightful man."

    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.
