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.

    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

    Since comments are disabled on the article: I'm really interested in people's opinion. What do you think about this? 안전놀이터 Why did my boyfriend like Emily Ratajkowski's butt on Instagram? Personally: I think an Insta "like" has such different value to different people that it's basically impossible to interpret what that means (for your relationship) without discussing that with the other person first. Or at least looking at what their regular behaviour is (do they follow 3 people and like almost nothing or follow 1000 people and like everything that passes under their thumb?) 인터넷바카라Then there's the whole aspect of guys looking at other girls than their girlfriend. It shouldn't matter, but it does. How do you deal with that?

    What is the future of Youtube shows? 인터넷카지노 Youtube and by default all of its hit channels are less than ten years old, but let's talk about how time affects Youtube. We've already seen the top channels peak and descend. The crown for most subscribed channel went from Ray William Johnson to Smosh to Pewdiepie. The crown for most watched recently from Machinima to Rihanna. Some Youtubers have made the transition to other media, or are trying to, like Toby Turner and the Fine Bros.  But I'm wondering if the future YT channels will be like other media or not. What will happen whenever someone wants to end their channel or a member of a duo wants to leave and the other wants to stay? Will Youtube channels die like cancelled television shows? Viewers are not as accustomed to endings like that online as on TV. How will audiences respond? 온라인바카라 If one of the Fine Brothers or Smosh guys wants to move on to something else, will the show continue with a new person like a late night talk show or SNL? Or are YT channels and their viewership not built to outlast their creators?

    ...and you probably aren't thinking about it because it's hot as balls outside right now. 인터넷카지노 BUT if you do live in New York, you probably know that landlords are required to turn the heat on by a certain date in October every year — and that every year certain scummy landlords will try to save money by not doing it. Of course, this happens most in poor neighborhoods in South Brooklyn and the Bronx. Yay! The universe is horrible. 바카라사이트주소     Tenants in these neighborhoods often have to fight with their landlords to get heat in the winter, and one thing makes this fight really tough — the lack of data. Tenants may be tracking the temperature in their apartments, but it's just not that convincing when you hand a judge a handwritten diary, especially if your landlord is right there calling you a liar. My brother started a nonprofit project to fix this. It's called HeatSeekNYC. They're placing XBees outfitted with thermometers in individual apartments and using a Raspberry Pi as a hub for a mesh network to get whole buildings online. The sensor takes regular temperature readings and records that data on a website that can be used by tenants, lawyers, and housing advocates. 카지노사이트  The system provides easy to read, incontrovertible data from the entire building so that landlords will be forced to stay honest. And if the landlord ever tries to turn the heat off or keep the temperature even just below the legal limit, it's easy to prove. HeatSeek is competing for funding from the NYC BigApps competition, and they need votes! Please consider giving them your support. A win would pay for 600 sensors.

    Saw this on Kickstarter. It sounds like an interesting way of delivering tech news. I’ve seen many detailed discussions and lengthy article-like posts on forums like this one, 카지노사이트주소  so it’d definitely be interesting to see how effective this would be.

    I would like to know, is it possible to remove or report my own questions that I have? I have asked some questions on Yahoo Answers that have some personal details in them and I would like to have them removed. I asked the website there but they so far the answers that I got was not that helpful. 안전놀이터   So far when I ask there they just give me 1. Click on the pencil icon and delete your questions 2. Once you have a best answer you cannot delete it. 바카라사이트 I know that you can report questions so I have other accounts on YA and I have been reporting my questions and so far that works. But I want to know what more effective measures that I can use to delete my questions?

    One of the points brought up by the opponent of Title ii was that he feels like Netflix should be paying ISPs extra for using up so much bandwidth. He felt like it made more sense for customers to pay Netflix more, so that Netflix can then go and pay his company extra for "clogging" up the internet. 온라인바카라 My confusion in all this is, what exactly am I paying for with my internet service plan and what am I paying Netflix for? If my ISP is getting paid so that I can have a certain amount/tier of bandwidth and GBs a month (as long as I stay under a cap), then shouldn't the delivery of Netflix /HBO Go/Hulu Plus/Amazon Video be part of that service? I thought I was paying Netflix for the content, and not the delivery. 카지노사이트주소    If my ISP cannot handle the video delivery because the content takes up too much bandwidth and resources, I'd expect that they should tell me, "Hey radderthanrad, all these video services take up a lot of resources and you're using more than most customers, so you should probably upgrade to a better connection so that you can maintain high-quality delivery of the videos you want to watch." 바카라사이트주소     In fact, when I had Xbox Gold and lived with someone else who liked to online game a lot, I paid Comcast extra for a better quality connection to make sure I could enjoy a good experience. I don't understand why I would expect Xbox's online gaming services to subsidize Comcast or Verizon for using up internet connections. What do you all think?

    First off, forgive me if there is an article on this - I haven't been paying much attention to the news (mainly because there isn't much relevant shit to me in it most of the time) ANYWAY... 카지노사이트Anyone noticing some weird subtle things going on between Facebook and Google/Youtube?   There's a Facebook "view" counter on videos now (yeah, I know that doesn't seem important but that is one more Youtube feature that Facebook is enabling - won't be long before a thumbs down button shows up ;) ) 온라인카지노 Is it me, or do embedded Youtube videos no longer support playback within the post? It seems when clicking on embedded Youtube thumbnails, I get taken to another tab with the Youtube URL now instead of it playing directly Thanks for indulging. Curious on your thoughts. Yes, YOU :D

    Anyone else having issues with Rdio today? 바카라사이트  I have $125 of pending activity on my account (Rdio Gift Certificates) that I didn't authorize.

    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.
