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.

    Ms Stephanie Chok Juin Mei, from the Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics, called for better protection for foreign domestic workers (FDWs) who are abused (Time to consider rights-based protection for abused maids, Forum Online; July 24). 인터넷카지노 Indeed, Singapore is committed to protecting the well-being and interests of all FDWs. Our laws and regulations, which are reviewed regularly, provide strong and comprehensive protection to FDWs working in Singapore. The Government takes all cases of abuse seriously, and thoroughly investigates all complaints. During the investigation period, FDWs are provided with care and support, including shelter, food and medical treatment. 인터넷바카라 For FDWs who are willing and able to continue working, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) facilitates their employment, so that they can maintain an income.   Singapore also has a clear record of strict enforcement against abuses and exploitation of FDWs. This means errant employers are investigated and punished accordingly. Anyone who abuses a FDW faces 1.5 times the maximum punishment under the Penal Code, and will be barred from hiring such workers in future. Through multiple platforms, MOM informs and educates FDWs on their rights and responsibilities as well as on the various channels through which they can seek help, such as at the Settling-In Programme, which is mandatory for all first-time FDWs. FDWs in distress can and do contact MOM, the police, non-governmental organisations, employment agencies, and their embassies for assistance. 바카라사이트주소 We urge FDWs and members of the public to swiftly report suspected abuse cases to MOM on 6438-5122 or the police on 1800-255-0000, dial 999 if urgent police assistance is required. All information will be kept strictly confidential.

    I do not deny that there have been attempts to encourage re-employment. However, the glacial pace of progress has cast doubts on whether these have really been effective or supportive. 인터넷바카라 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. 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. 카지노사이트  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. 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 (Simplistic to blame individual choices for social inequality) . 바카라사이트 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. It does not mean that help should not be rendered to such individuals or families. 인터넷카지노 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. 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. 인터넷바카라 In explaining its decision to turn down the family's request, the Ministry of Defence laid out its principles clearly (Eng Hen explains why request from Ben Davis was rejected). 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. 온라인바카라 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. 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. 인터넷카지노 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.

    While nature interest groups generally welcome inclusion and encourage the public to participate in their activities, I am surprised that Mr Neeraj Prabakharan advocated exclusion in his letter (Feeding wild animals does more harm than good). 온라인바카라 The late president S R Nathan made wild birds feel at home in the Istana, and ensured that hornbills had adequate food and shelter so that they would breed there. Heartened by Mr Nathan, private citizens with the means to do so and with support from people involved in the Istana project emulated his example, thereby encouraging hornbills and other desirable birds, once scarce in Singapore, to re-establish themselves. Yet, Mr Prabakharan supports prohibiting the feeding of wildlife. This will discourage nature lovers from actively attracting songbirds to their gardens. While he admits that bird-feeding stations are frequently set up to see birds through the winters in temperate countries, he is incorrect to claim that in Singapore there is an abundance of food all year round. 인터넷카지노 For local songbird species, breeding is dependent on the supply of food. During the dry season mid-year, breeding activity drops off. But if food is provided, breeding continues throughout the year.   His statement that the feeding of wildlife by untrained individuals would often do more harm than good is unsubstantiated and supercilious. Many desirable bird species are quite adaptable as far as diet is concerned. It is inaccurate for him to claim that what is used in bird feeders is nutritionally inadequate. Very reliable and well-researched products are readily available in Singapore. Pet birds grow, sing and breed on these diets. Wild birds will flourish just as well. 온라인카지노 His mention that the feeding of "wild" pigeons caused them to procreate and become pests is irrelevant to the subject of wildlife. The pest pigeons are not truly wild but are domestic stock that has gone feral. I will support steps the authorities take to humanely remove them. Mr Prabakharan's position that we should keep our distance from wildlife and that nature appreciation can be achieved by visiting parks and nature reserves is too extreme a stand.

    The issue is whether the pay packet given to a particular minister is justified by the effort he puts in to build the nation and look after its people. If the minister is the right person for the job, a high salary is reasonable. 온라인카지노 If you look at multinational companies, their chief executive is rewarded if he is able to achieve good yearly growth. The Singapore Government should give special bonuses or set up a pension fund as compensation to those who are willing to sacrifice the benefits they enjoyed in the corporate world. Any increment would be based on his performance. 온라인바카라 But, money should not be the main attraction to woo the best people to join the Government. They should also have the passion, interest and determination to do the job well.

    About 2.5 years ago I started an experiment, could I leave Google. 온라인카지노 I was nervous, finding information is often important to my work; and after more than 10 years I had come to trust the relationship between my search methodology and Google's responses. I had also read so much bad stuff about Bing, starting with its silly name through to only being useful in the USA. First I test switched to Bing on my work desktop. It felt quicker there to be able to repeat the search in Google if I didn't trust the result. Initially I did not like the web results or the news search but what did win me over was image search on Bing. So after image search next I started appreciating the video search interface and then switched my laptop to Bing. It was a gradual mental process and perhaps my methodology shifted but I came to observe that web results did return what I was looking for even if it was not exactly the same sites or order of sites.  Letting go of comparing the order of results was the turning point. It may seem obvious but the actual goal here is finding information, not that a results window looks the same. How often is that your real comparison? 바카라사이트주소 Next I switched my iOS devices over to Bing. but my transfer was not complete as I still defaulted to Google Maps on web. That has also stopped. So has relying on Google for local business information. I like Bing. Where does Google still play? There are rare occasions where I seek a second search opinion when I don't find what I am looking for. I still use Google Maps when I am measuring a distance between two places - once or twice a year. I do view content on YouTube and breaking that I think at this time is a near impossible task. If the content is there and nowhere else.... Of course if I am placing something on the web and want it found I make sure it is known to Google. Also ironically perhaps, at work on Windows I use Chrome, Firefox is too slow. I also do use Chrome on my Mac if I am uploading to YouTube as it has a resume feature not available on Safari. 카지노사이트 Do I Bing it? No I never say that, I search for things and I tell people to "search for it" Oh and... how sweet is Chrome + Bing

    When I heard about Amazon Video Direct earlier on today, I was pretty excited. It was written about as a YouTube competitor and, as much as I love YouTube, I was pretty keen to get in on AVD on the ground floor. 인터넷카지노  Amazon just seemed like such a good place to publish short fiction videos; it's already the prime place for independent e-books, I thought it would be the perfect place for my video fictions. Now, I'm under no illusions - my stories are my pleasure, but they are never going to be a big earner for me. I write and record for the love of the story. Right now, I'm happy with that. But the thought of entering a less crowded marketplace was also appealing. I just want people to enjoy my work and AVD is so new, it is going to make discovery of my fictions a whole lot easier. 인터넷바카라 *BUT IT IS NOT.* Youtube's success comes partly from the fact that it is so damn easy to upload. I teach 11 year old kids who do it better than me, because it just works well. But Amazon Video Direct is not only ugly, but cumbersome and (worst of all) insists you include _closed captions_ when you upload. WHAT??! Ain't nobody got time for that. 카지노사이트주소 And this is why Amazon Video Direct is going to be a completely different kettle of fish to YouTube. YouTube is for everyone; AVD is for those who are serious about their work. Sure, it might end up meaning a smaller, but better quality, selection of videos - but it is never going to have the reach and cultural penetration of YouTube.

    Facebook looks certainly like company hellbent on changing how human beings interact with each other. There are close to 1.5 billion people who now use Facebook on one or more of the available platforms (Web and Apps), and if you include its subsidiaries/acquisitions such as WhatsApp, Instagram, and Oculus, then that pool of users grows significantly. 온라인카지노  Facebook introduced live broadcast on its news feed enabling users to share videos with their followers in real time. However, I can't stop to imagine that Facebook could do more with its live video streaming feature by adding more functions. Chances are that some of the functions could be in the works already behind the scenes, which means we could see them soon. But that hasn't happened yet. 온라인카지노 Facebook has the potential to top that list of the world's largest companiesby market capitalization by the year 2020, especially if it can fully utilize its addressable market. One of the things that Facebook could add to live video is conferencing and group discussions. It can integrate these features to be visible in the on pop out window broadcast. This would allow the company to broaden the services offered thereby giving it a chance to even challenge other platforms like Skype and Google Hangouts. 카지노사이트  With the modern work environment shifting from the physical offices to cloud computing, this feature might actually become a realistic revenue contributor to Facebook's business model. In summary, Facebook's live video broadcast feature could be made better by adding more functions as pointed out. It's a great product with great potential of making a difference in the company in dollar terms.

    Not many years ago, artificial intelligence seemed impossible. Today, it’s not only possible, it’s already being used. AI is already benefiting your life in a number of ways whether you realize it or not. Soon, it’s going to be making life even easier. Here are just three of the ways. 바카라사이트  Shorter security lines at the airport The worst thing about air travel—and that’s saying a lot—is getting through security. There is a nationwide shortage of TSA personnel and it’s the human element that really slows down security checkpoints. Soon, AI will be used to screen your baggage instead of humans. And it will do it much more quickly and accurately. 온라인바카라 Smarter customer service Few things are as annoying as calling a customer service number only to spend the next half hour on hold or transferred from department to department until you talk to the right person. Large companies can’t afford to have a live person answer every phone call and automated answering services are a poor substitute. But with the power of AI, customer service is going to be automated in such a way that you’ll be off the phone within just a few minutes of placing your call. Very cheap car insurance 인터넷카지노 Driverless cars are soon to be a reality and when computers are doing the driving, there’s going to be far fewer accidents. So few in fact, that the only reason you’ll need car insurance at all is bad weather and bitter exes which means insuring your car is about to get a whole lot cheaper.

Very cheap car insurance 인터넷카지노 Driverless cars are soon to be a reality and when computers are doing the driving, there’s going to be far fewer accidents. So few in fact, that the only reason you’ll need car insurance at all is bad weather and bitter exes which means insuring your car is about to get a whole lot cheaper.

    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.
