Goodbye Dragon, welcome water snake!
2012 is my dream-comes-true year, while 2013 will be my busiest year of my three decades life by far.
His collection inspired me, and thus I started my quest for classic chinese cinema, old magazines, old movie memorabillas, paying attention to local column about classic movie and classic stars, and slowly ventured into classic Hollywood as well, I must say is a lonely passion in this niche and bizzare interest, because no one in my peer group, or my the elders, would ever make sense out of it, simply because they did not know how, but I just stayed cool, and I still live on with it.

Over the journey, there are a lot of people that helped and guided me sincerely, and some are among my greatest friends nowadays. First of all, my greatest masters of retro and Chinese/ Hollywood classic movies, who I'm fortunante enough to meet and become their buddy , they are Mr Paul Fonoroff, the foremost movie critic and movie historian, Mr Roth Lai (oldflames), the Anna Wintour of Malaysia, as well as Dave of US National Film Preservation Foundation. Also Mr Zheng Hong from Hunan, China, a ture talent in cinematic history that choose to hide from public vision, Their generousity and depth of knowledge always amazed me!
Secondly, I would like to thank to my all-time great brother and his wife, Mr and Mrs WengWu (madam Wong Pao Cheng, one of the foremost leading ladies of Great Wall Studio in 1960s-1970s) (screen and real life couple of Greatwall and Feng Huang Studio, they are the household name of SG/MY Chinese in the 1960s-1970s), who has cared and helped me alot during my journey of dream, without hesistation. Not to be missed is Mr great buddy Mr Sze of sil Metropole, who supoorted me wholeheartedly ever since I get to know him since 2010. I would like to thank Mr Sha Dan, the fellow researcher and program manager of Beijing National Film Archive, who has been genuinely kind really helpful along the way.
