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.

    Meerkat was starting to become a social darling for the social media crowd. Meerkat allowed people to start streaming personally and made it a simple cleaning app. They were doing so well until Twitter decided to act up again. Again, Twitter is attempting to kill a competitor through API death. They want to keep to their own company which they recently acquired for no good reason as the main streaming client. The irony: the thing that kept then going, invented ways to improvement to their platforms and arguably made them is the thing they want to kill off. As I heard arguably the thing that made their company known, hashtags, were not designed by them but by a third party. That just proves to me that Twitter should stop being a network and start being a platform. 인터넷바카라 Their setup doesn't allow for proper social network based setup. We recently go the ability to mute (which should have rolled out sooner) and yet that isn't enough. Thomas Ricker goes into better detail but we can't temporarily mute hashtag or people for a time duration. We can't hide particular posts we don't want to see. Search is STILL loathsome even with their advance search (certain ways of searching does not feel optimum). You would think that for a company that wants to deliver a great experience they would put time and effort into these things. Instead they have not. They do however have the setup for a platform: low data prints, easy to communicate with great authorization and great broadcasting features for a lot of people. It makes it easy for people to jump in and out of said platform easily and thus get included into conversations quickly like a platform. These things are what make Twitter not only fun but good enough so that a person can MacGyver their way into creating an experience that people want to use. They have frame work ready, so now they just got to make the framework get tools, those tools should be 3rd Party APIs. 카지노사이트         Back in the days of Twitter being a company that let users join up on their API, a lot of places came up with interesting ways to connect to Twitter. It could be their own client, it could be to their own services for a platform, or it could even be creating a service that extends the platform. One experience: When there was a "decent" Chrome Twitter client, I rarely checked Twitter because it did everything I needed to. In that moment, Twitter should have focused into being that main API area. Instead, they restricted and are now paying the price. They now have to take harassment even more seriously because people are leaving. They are having middling results trying to keep those here and grow the platform. All of these things cut into their profits and otherwise financial interests as a company. Moreover, it really makes it hard to talk to investors about how bad things are getting, and especially when you have an email come out admitting you suck at your job. Which now brings me back to this news with Meerkat. Twitter, once again, botches what could make it better by being a platform by opposing anyone to run with said platform and instead trying to lock people into said ecosystem. Which now means they're going to now manage streams which can make them even MORE overextended than they usually are. Twitter doesn't have to walk this path. Instead they could brach out: Create better tools and methods for your API including better ways for 3rd parties to show you how harassment works and how to deal with it (including action plans for Swatting). Get Digits out and become THE de facto phone number authorization protocol (which can then help verify accounts). Get crazy: acquire Disqus, create new ways to make Disqus that social API for commenting as well as arguably user interaction that anyone can custom make under the hood and tie up Twitter with it. 온라인카지노 Just whatever you do, stop trying to be a social network, because you're not a social network. Facebook is a social network, LinkedIn is a social network, Snapchat, Google+, and even Ello are social networks and better at the game than you could ever need to, would want to, or should be.

    So I used to have Adblock on Chrome on my Windows laptop. I already didn't use one on my Android because I simply don't browse enough on it for it to be of any use. 온라인바카라 Ok, so back to my Chrome browser. I used to have Adblock on by default for any and every website and it was great: clean webpages, fast load times, no annoying popups! Then I started whitelisting certain websites (The Verge was one, but also Facebook and Google). And then, I switched to having Adblock off by default and blacklisting certain websites (most notably, torrent sites and their terrible, terrible ads) but I was also blacklisting Youtube, because I watch a lot of it and the same ads kept coming on and when you've seen some crappy bank ad 5 times in a row it gets really old. 카지노사이트주소    Ok, so why did I end up completely uninstalling Adblock you ask? Well, the reason is actually kinda simple, I felt guilty I was stealing money away from content creators that I loved. A lot of the channels on Youtube I follow deliver top-tier content every week and even sometimes every day! These guys deserve to get paid for their work! Like I watched a VSauce video and god damn Michael deserves to have wads of money thrown at him! But since I can't do that, I watched a 5sec pre-roll instead. Same thing for Casey Neistat's vlog, Epic Meal Time, TheSmokingTire, LifeAccordingToJimmy, all these guys deliver great content super regularly! I'm not gonna pretend my time is that valuable, clearly I'm already spending hours watching YouTube every week I'm not fooling anybody. 바카라사이트  And yeah, every time I see that crappy ad about Russian girls in my area or some bank that wants to loan me money I still wanna punch my screen. It's worth it though, because at the other end of that screen there's the Verge staff, there's Michael Stevens or Harley Morenstein. And in the end, those guys are doing a hell of a job. And if I can pay them for their job by spending a couple minutes each day listening to the dude with a Lamborghini and seven bookshelves in his garage then I'll do it.   So how about you guys? Do you use Adblockers?

    I've been using the Steam Controller for the past week and I enjoy it a lot as a game controller. It has quite a learning curve in that kind of use, but I've found it comfortable to use with every game that I've tried thus far. However, the real kicker for me is as a new way of input for browsing the web on a large TV. 카지노사이트 Trying to do it with a previous controller was pretty much impossible. Windows as an OS never worked correctly with a controller. Even if you could get an analog stick to work as a mouse, the speed was so slow it felt aggravating. 인터넷카지노 With the Steam Controller, the trackpads emulating a trackball and scroll wheel feel excellent in use, and it turns the web into much more of a lean-back experience instead of a lean-forward-while-throwing-the-controller-out-of-a-window one. Netflix? Amazon? Youtube? Hulu? Google Music? Pocketcasts? I don't have an issue with these anymore... ...Well, I would imagine I don't with all of them. I never said anything about the UI problem. 인터넷바카라 UPDATE: The newest Beta for the Steam Client introduced a way to bring the keyboard outside of Big Picture mode. There is an option in the power menu to "Minimize" Big picture. When you do that, you can click down on the left stick to bring up the keyboard in any app you're in, even outside of Steam.

    The T-Mobile plan does violate Net Neutrality – And that’s okay! 온라인카지노 All of the debate about Net Neutrality has focused on nightmare scenarios, conspiracy theories. The fear that ISPs would block out competing products, or deny bandwidth to political websites that disagree with the company. But I think what we’re seeing in the real world is real benefits from not having Net Neutrality. Here in the US, T-Mobile is doing interesting things with music streaming and now TV streaming. You can imagine other companies jumping to offer similar deals. 온라인바카라 In the developing world, you have programs like Facebook’s Internet.org, where the company is investing heavily in internet infrastructure where no one else is, on the premise that Facebook will make back some money from new internet users using Facebook services. If net neutraility were enforced globally, Facebook would lose its financial incentive to pursue this project. Anyway, you can see lots of reasons why companies would want to experiment in this area. I know The Verge just wants mobile carriers and internet providers to become "dumb pipes," but it’s worth looking at things from those company’s perspective. If Verizon and T-Mobile were forced to compete on price and coverage alone, they would have very little incentive to experiment and make their service more appealing. 카지노사이트주소 Folks would simply choose the plan that a) has coverage in their area and b) is cheapest. What if Verizon just undercuts T-Mobile's price? How would T-Mobile counter that, besides just lowering prices further? Same with cable television providers. Instead, we get this wild offering from T-Mobile, with other carriers sure to offer similar deals.

    I am convinced that the within 5 years, most EU member states will completely ban encryption. 인터넷카지노 Why? It has to do with growing social tensions between ethnic groups. You might have noticed that some EU immigrants have a special idea of having a good time... Those NO GO ZONES... They do exist. But it is not like most imagine. These are areas where police and the fire department or any other officials are systematically harassed, by throwing stones and other items on them.인터넷바카라 The UK... they pretty much banned private handgun ownership out of fear that too many immigrants would be shoot in self defense during home invasions... So, for sure the UK will ban encryption. Then the French will do it, the Swedes and it will become EU law. I also expect a total gun ownership ban in Europe within the same time frame. 카지노사이트 Look, out of 300 French Main Battle tanks, less than 30 are operational. The Eurofighters have cracks in their front wing cage... With every nation having its own weapons, trucks, the EU can't cope with any form of revolution, they could not even buy nor get spare parts as many manufacturers are out of business.

    It's become unbearable these days. full page, front page ads on leading dailies, web ads on youtube, ads on leading news channels, and that nagging notification when you open facebook. Handshakes with the prime minister..... 인터넷카지노 You want to destroy net neutrality and you want my help in doing so? please f*** off. I'm not dumb enough to see the business interests associated with a supposedly charitable program- you know that too, so why this sly marketing? Please don't show us (supposedly) underprivileged indians in your hideous ads (btw, if you are wondering, they are actors wearing particularly bad clothes and unkept hair). Please stop bombarding my mornings with full page front page newspaper ads (yes we still get our news from printed newspapers). 인터넷바카라 OK, but Mr.Zuckerberg wants to help underprivileged indians! LIE! a big lie. the real average income for a low income household (say a farmer / labourer ) in a rural setting is around 1500 us$ a year. and we have a huge selection of smartphones that cost less than 100$ ( see xiaomi redmi prime 2). 3g plans (where available) cost 1-2 $ per gigabyte per month. So essentially anyone who wants to use a smartphone CAN afford it and use it (NOTE: the cost of living in a rural setting is way low compared to western countries- and according to the indian govt is 1-2$ for a (classified poor) family ).카지노사이트 The problem for net access in india is not the cost of entry (usually a smartphone) or even the cost of data, but it is connectivity- the country is quite large and though most of the land mass has 2g connectivity, 3g is a rarity in the rural setting. The private telecom players do not find the rural market profitable for 3g services as they need larger infrastructure to cater to the same amount of customers. SO is Mr.Zuckerberg really addressing these problems? in two words, HELL, NO!

    I like stories - short ones in particular. I write and publish 2-minute fictions on YouTube every day from pieces I post on Medium . 카지노사이트주소 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. 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. 바카라사이트주소 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. 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 when you upload. WHAT??! Ain't nobody got time for that. 안전놀이터 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.

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 when you upload. WHAT??! Ain't nobody got time for that. 안전놀이터 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. 인터넷카지노 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. 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. 카지노사이트 Facebook has the potential to top that list of the world's largest companies by 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. 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. 인터넷바카라 In summary, Facebook's live video broadcast feature could be made better by a dding more functions as pointed out. It's a great product with great potential of making a difference in the company in dollar terms.

    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.
