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.

    The Venice film festival was slammed for its "toxic masculinity" as it opened on Wednesday (Aug 29) with just one female director represented among its most mouth-watering line-up in decades. 온라인바카라 With Hollywood effectively turning the festival into its launchpad for the Oscars with new films by Damien Chazelle, the Coen brothers, Alfonso Cuaron and Lady Gaga's much-hyped screen debut, feminists have lashed the organisers for choosing only one film by a female director. It is the second year in a row that Venice has featured just one film by a woman among the 21 vying for the Golden Lion top prize. Festival director Alberto Barbera had declared that he would "rather quit" than give in to pressure for a quota for women after the Cannes, Toronto and Locarno festivals pledged themselves to gender equality. But his stance - as Venice bids to rival Cannes as the world's most important festival - was lambasted by an alliance of European women filmmakers. "Sorry, but we don't buy this anymore," said the European Women's Audiovisual Network in an open letter earlier this month. "When Alberto Barbera threatens to quit, he is perpetuating the notion that selecting films by female filmmakers involves lowering standards." 카지노사이트주소   Others blamed a streak of Italian "toxic masculinity" that saw actress and #MeToo campaigner Asia Argento pilloried in her homeland for accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape. But on Wednesday, Barbera seemed to soften his position considerably as the head of his jury, Oscar-winning Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, threw his weight behind the 50/50 by 2020 campaign launched by women stars and directors at Cannes. "For me the goal is clear and has to remain 50/50 by 2020," the director told reporters in Venice. "I think 50/50 by 2019 is better. It is not a matter of establishing a quota... (but) it is extremely important to call (under-represenatation) out. For many decades and centuries it had not been called out."

In a tweet following the announcement, the creator wrote: "Excited to show you guys the final chapter in Elliot's journey. It's going to be sad to say goodbye to Mr Robot, but it'll be sadder to say goodbye to all the fans." 안전놀이터 The first season of Mr Robot was a buzzed-about and critical success, garnering numerous award nominations and wins, including a Golden Globe for best television series drama and an Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama for Malek.

    Columnist and cookbook author Cathy Barrow and writer Kristen Hartke recently joined The Washington Post Food staff to answer questions about all things edible. Here are edited excerpts from that chat. 카지노사이트주소    Q: I have beautiful celery in my garden. What is the best way to save it for Thanksgiving stuffing? Should I dice, then freeze, or freeze the whole stalks? If diced, how best to dry it before freezing? A: Celery, because it's mostly water, doesn't like the freezer. Once the diced or whole stalks emerge from the freezer, the water is released and you're left with (very aromatic) limp bits of celery. If using the celery for soup or to scent stock, it will be useful, but if you hope for that crunch in your stuffing, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. - Cathy Barrow Q: I bought what I thought was a pint of shishito peppers at the farmers market, but now I'm thinking they're either very hot shishitos or birds eyes. I've thrown a few into my meals throughout the week, but thought I'd see what folks in here would do with a big batch of very hot peppers. A: Probably the first thing I would do is to freeze some of them, because, much as I love hot peppers, a big batch probably won't get used up that quickly. Just spread the whole peppers on a cookie sheet and they'll freeze solid, then you can pop them into a freezer-safe container and defrost and cook with them at will during the winter. You can also pickle them. - Kristen Hartke  바카라사이트주소 Q: I made a pureed sauce last night for dinner and had lots of leftover, so I decided to freeze it. However, I'm not actually sure if it's a sauce that can be frozen and then thawed to its original glory. It's basically made of pureed jalapenos, mayonnaise, sour cream, a bit of lime juice, and olive oil. I'm concerned because of the sour cream (and maybe mayonnaise?) Should I be OK, or should I just go ahead and toss it out?   A: Neither mayonnaise nor sour cream are good candidates for the freezer. A sauce made with both would keep in the refrigerator for two or three days, surely, but if you have already frozen it, I'm afraid it will need to be tossed. - C.B. Q: I'm new to lentils - after discovering and enjoying them from a restaurant, I purchased a bag (Whole Foods store brand red lentils) to add variety to my salads. The first time I cooked them, I followed the instructions on the bag precisely. They boiled over and turned to mush, so I threw them out. The second time I cooked them, I followed the instructions on a Washington Post recipe. While they didn't boil over this time, they too turned to mush. What am I doing wrong? Should I purchase a different type of lentil? Should I cook them in a much larger pan than the sauce pan I'm using? I want to be able to cook them but at this rate will never buy again. A: Red lentils . . . turn to mush! A beautiful, wonderful mush. That's pretty much the idea with them. If you want lentils that don't, you should get brown, green or black ones. - Joe Yonan Q: I want to make some sandwiches that I could take on a flight in a couple of days and I would like to avoid meat. Ideas? Should we consider a different savoury snack instead of sandwiches? A: One of my go-to traveling sandwiches is just a bunch of mixed roasted veggies (oil, garlic, salt, pepper) - in the summer I use squash and eggplant - combined with goat cheese, herbs and whatever other condiments you like. It's simple and holds pretty well. - Becky Krystal 안전놀이터 Q: I moved six years ago and there are several boxes of pasta that moved with me and remain unopened. Does pasta expire? Is it safe to eat? Will it still taste OK? A: Dried pasta can keep for a long time - it has no water content, so I wouldn't be overly concerned about it myself. If it looks or smells funny - and, again, I can't imagine why - then pitch it, but, otherwise, I suspect that it's fine. - K.H. Q: My uncle and his husband give out home canned stuff for holiday gifts. All sorts of things from apple sauce to pear butter to pickled stuff. What do I do with the jars after I eat the goodies? Should I be bringing it back to them? Recycling? I'm pretty sure you can't reuse the lids (right?) but what about the jars? A: You can reuse both jars and lids, but you can't reuse the lids for actual canning. You can reuse them as just lids, though, of course - and you can reuse the jars as storage containers for all sorts of things, but they're especially good for salad dressings. And if you do can, you can reuse the jars for that - with new lids. Having said that, if the guys do a lot of canning, they probably would appreciate having the jars back, for future projects. And yes, you can recycle them. - J.Y. Q: My husband and I each replaced the usual quart of half-and-half in our fridge at the same time. It's from a local farm, so doesn't keep as well as the usual store-bought, which is one reason we like it. How can I use up that extra quart before it turns? A: I love using it for French toast. - B.K.

     Ratatouille can take many forms. 안전놀이터 There's fancy: eggplant, tomatoes and zucchini artfully cut and arranged in a dish before baking - the kind of thing you don't mind getting the china down for. And there's simple: a potentially sloppy mix of long-stewed vegetables, liable to collapse in an oily heap on your everyday plates before being devoured. The same can be said for ratatouille baked in a crust. It can be an elegant tart, a dainty quiche or, as in this case, a rustic pie that's homely, but impossible to resist. Its golden crust shatters messily when you cut it. The custard filling could leak, escaping the pastry. The cheese may brown; the tomatoes on top may shrivel. None of that matters when you taste it, each buttery, creamy, vegetable-filled bite flavoured with herbs and olives, and covered in cheese. This recipe is very loosely based on a Southern tomato pie. There's a parbaked pie crust anchoring the vegetables, and a custard imbued with mayonnaise and cheese to bind them. But that's where the similarities end. Here, I skipped the raw tomatoes, substituting a mix of summer vegetables cooked in plenty of olive oil until velvety soft. I particularly like to roast them so they caramelise and release much of their moisture, which keeps the pastry from turning soggy. If you have leftover ratatouille or any kind of cooked vegetables - roasted, grilled, sautéed - in your fridge, you could use those instead. You'll need about three to four cups of cooked vegetables, enough to fill the crust by two-thirds.   If you are using your own cooked vegetables instead of roasting them as in the recipe, be sure to stir in plenty of herbs: basil, rosemary and thyme. These add a lot in terms of complexity, and keep the olives from taking over. 카지노사이트주소 Now, about the mayonnaise. While it may seem like an odd match with ratatouille, it has an inherent tanginess that works well with the richness of the vegetables. I did try baking a version using crème fraîche to make it a little more French-seeming. But, to me, the result was insipid. Purists can make their own mayonnaise if anyone objects to using the stuff from the jar. No matter how else you tweak it, make sure to bake the pie on the day of serving. This hot mess is its best, stunning self when it's just that: just baked, a little warm from the oven and delightfully gooey.

    Thousands of revellers hurled around 145 tonnes of tomatoes at each other on Wednesday (August 29) during the annual "Tomatina" festival in the Spanish town of Bunol, 38 kilometers west of Valencia. A fire cracker signal marked the start of La Tomatina at 11am (0900 GMT) and during the next hour, six trucks loaded with tomatoes drove through Bunol's main street providing red ammunition for the revelers to enjoy themselves. 온라인바카라 The food fight originates from a spontaneous bust-up amongst villagers in 1945. It was banned for a time during the 1950s at the height of General Francisco Franco's dictatorship, but has gained popularity since it was reinstated, drawing a huge international crowd. At its peak, the Tomatina attracted approximately 45,000 people, but it has now become a ticketed event with only 22,000 places, 5,000 of which go to local residents.

    A consortium led by Hillhouse Capital Group is offering US$17.6 billion (S$24 billion) or US$46 per share for Yum China, a purveyor of fried chicken and pizza. 인터넷바카라 The offer is nearly 24 per cent higher than its closing price on Tuesday (Aug 28). But, the company has reportedly rejected the buyout deal, which did not offer detailed terms. Sources told Reuters that Yum China's board decided the offer provided no extra value. Mr Justin Urquhart Stewart, co-founder of Seven Investment Management, said: "In China, they maintain in fact a monopoly on those brands. Therefore, they are a cash cow... Management would see this as a rather opportunist bid to come in to try and buy assets, albeit at a premium to current price, still at a discounted price to where they were a few months back." Yum China is the biggest fast-food chain in China, and holds exclusive licensing rights for KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell. 인터넷카지노   It currently operates 8,100 restaurants across the country and was the first major Western fast-food company to enter China. Its latest move quashes what would have been one of Asia's biggest deals this year. Mr Stewart added: "So what this will do in fact is actually probably just give further support to say the business like this has got a greater premium than currently being offered." Yum China declined to comment, but says it has the potential to grow to over 20,0000 stores in the long term.

    With the recent announcement of the NFL deal with Yahoo to stream a game online, it should be time to take a look at the things to watch for during the livestream. This is a massive opportunity for both the NFL and Yahoo, as both groups have large audiences and large reaches. 바카라사이트 International Viewing: With the game being broadcast via Yahoo for most markets, this is a test to see the global reach that the NFL has. For many years, an expansion team has been talked about in overseas locations for the NFL, but this is a chance to see what that interest may be like. For Yahoo, this is a chance to further grow their international platform as a whole. Yahoo will be able to broadcast this game in massive markets, such as the UK, China and other large countries that may not have regular viewing access to NFL games. Prediction: Welcome to the USA, where we are extremely curious about new things. Ratings may be high at the beginning, because we want to see things we are not used to. Ratings in the on home turf should expect to go down throughout the game. However, expect international ratings to be at a very high number, with football becoming a growing sports in expanding markets. 인터넷카지노 Yahoo Integration: Yahoo has many different properties that it can use to further enhance the experience for fans. For example, Yahoo Screen is the main video part of the website that will be used by many fans to see the actual game. Yahoo-owned Tumblr is a growing social product, with tens of millions of posts being created by people all around the world everyday. Can Yahoo use Tumblr in order to make the game more social? Yahoo also has created a very successful Fantasy Sports application used by millions. There is a massive amount of potential to use it's fantasy sports platform directly with the game. Other properties and platforms that are interesting in partnership with the game are Yahoo Search, Flickr and it's main news website. Prediction: This one should be fun. Yahoo is going to be creating a massive platform FOR ONE GAME OF THE BILLS VS. JAGS. Expect GIFs every two seconds on Tumblr, followed by fantasy exclusives provided by the top Yahoo NFL writers. Quality: Let's be honest. The first livestream NFL game via Yahoo could go up in flames. It could be amazing, but how do we know the quality is going to be perfect, something we are pretty used to with CBS, NBC and Fox Sports. Just a thought... 인터넷바카라 Prediction: It is not going to be perfect, but I do not think it is going to be awful. Yahoo Screen is a platform with high potential, and with CBS producing the game, this has the potential to be good. But not perfect...let's remember that. Game Experience: For your average TV user, the game may be DVR'd (or something similar) to either skip commercials or watch the entirety of the game of if the viewer is a couple minutes late. What does Yahoo provide us with this time around? Will we have the chance to record the game, and start it from the beginning a few minutes late? In addition, will Yahoo allow us to watch the game after it is done, allowing people to maybe see a game later in the day? Will we have a chance to rewind the game if somebody makes an amazing catch (or Rex Ryan does something weird, since that is very high in probability). Prediction: The game will be allowed to be rewinded (a certain amount of time), but not recorded. Yahoo will allow Yahoo-registered users to watch the game after it ends via Yahoo Screen. The game will be lowell watched after it ends, because people realize they have work, school...or the rest of their days.

  • With the recent announcement of the NFL deal with Yahoo to stream a game online, it should be time to take a look at the things to watch for during the livestream. This is a massive opportunity for both the NFL and Yahoo, as both groups have large audiences and large reaches. 바카라사이트 International Viewing: With the game being broadcast via Yahoo for most markets, this is a test to see the global reach that the NFL has. For many years, an expansion team has been talked about in overseas locations for the NFL, but this is a chance to see what that interest may be like. For Yahoo, this is a chance to further grow their international platform as a whole. Yahoo will be able to broadcast this game in massive markets, such as the UK, China and other large countries that may not have regular viewing access to NFL games. Prediction: Welcome to the USA, where we are extremely curious about new things. Ratings may be high at the beginning, because we want to see things we are not used to. Ratings in the on home turf should expect to go down throughout the game. However, expect international ratings to be at a very high number, with football becoming a growing sports in expanding markets. 인터넷카지노 Yahoo Integration: Yahoo has many different properties that it can use to further enhance the experience for fans. For example, Yahoo Screen is the main video part of the website that will be used by many fans to see the actual game. Yahoo-owned Tumblr is a growing social product, with tens of millions of posts being created by people all around the world everyday. Can Yahoo use Tumblr in order to make the game more social?

    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!

    I realize the new rules aren't really rules yet; more than anything they're scaffolding for future rules. But regardless, in light of Adi Robertson's article, "New Reddit rules will crack down on some hate communities, leave others standing," I'm wondering what folks think of the new rules that Steve Huffman announced. 온라인카지노 I say beef. This seems to strike as good of a balance as Reddit was ever going to be able to strike. On the one hand, they want to retain their moniker of being the "bastion of free speech." Despite the fact that Huffman denies that it is a full fledged, unregulated community, it's clear that part of the allure of the site is the fact that people can discuss whatever they want in almost any way they want. But at the same time, there must be limits. On the other side of the scales is the fact that Reddit wants to make money. They aren't just a company in someone's garage. They have a huge audience with a huge number of page views. They have to find a way to monetize those eyeballs, and advertising is the way to do it. If Donald Trump has taught us anything, it's that advertisers don't want to be associated with inflammatory or offensive things. 온라인바카라 Reddit's reputation isn't just that it is a place with a lot of eyes, and that it often has a hand in breaking news stories, but also that it is a place where truly heinous, offensive, and sometimes threatening behavior occurs. Say what you want about Trump, but he's a good business man and has his hands in a lot of profitable businesses. Even so advertisers pulled their money from one of this profitable ventures, the Miss America Pagent. That shows that it doesn't take much for them to back away. By secluding the "content that violates a common sense of decency" from random people that find their way to Reddit while browsing the web, but still allowing members to continue to contribute to that content, Reddit has found a pretty good way of having its cake and eating it too. 카지노사이트주소 As an aside, if the "content that violates a common sense of decency" gets enough eyes, I'm guessing Reddit will open it up to advertisers and be more than happy to generate revenue from it. The organizations advertising in those sections will just be less-mainstream businesses that might, themselves, seem to violate a common sense of decency.

    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

    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.
