  • 'Far Apart, Close At Heart' Memorial Events for Leslie Cheung 2011

    Tuesday, Mar 29, 2011 6:15AM / Members only

    From RED MISSION Forum

    As we move into 2011, we are still busy coping with our work and our hectic lifestyle.  When we take a break from the hustle and bustle of our everyday living, there is no better way to refresh our minds than by listening to Leslie’s music and watching his films.

    We know well that this is the best way to recharge our batteries as we continue to pursue our various goals in life.  Day after day, year after year…no matter how many years roll on, though fate has led Leslie to another place, we still have him close to our hearts.

    As in the past 7 years, Red Mission will carry on the tradition of holding an evening memorial program at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza in Tsim Sha Tsui.  s2 l( m  k0 M, L  i" f" y
    To coincide with this year’s 20th anniversary of the premiere of the award-winning movie, ‘Days of Being Wild’, in which Leslie won the Best Actor Award, we will be launching a thematic retrospection of the film, which will include a movie screening and a sharing session. 

    Where Memories Linger – Leslie Cheung in Asia

    Last year, Leslie was selected as the 3rd ‘Most Iconic Musicians in the World Over the Past 50 years’ in a poll taken by Cable News Networks (CNN). 
    He is a brilliant talent widely recognized not only in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia, but also across different continents.
    In this year’s evening event, we will be tracking Leslie’s performances around Asia.

    March 31

    After that my friend and I went to Sham Shui Po and walked around the market. I thought this market looks like 秋葉原(Akihabara) in Japan.
    Then we went to Hong Kong Film Archive to donate the books of Leslie for RED MISSION Japan activity. (RED MISSION Japan donated books of Leslie to HKFA every year.)

    This year we donated these books.
    (The One and Only Japanese edition, Kazuhiro Nishijima photo book, 2 ASIAN magazines,POP ASIA magazine)

    We went back to Tsim Sha Tsui for the Mass for Leslie. We had time for an hour, so we went to Charlie Brown Cafe and had some coffee.

    We attended the Mass for Leslie at Rosary church. I could meet some Leslie's oversea fan friends there. We prayed for Leslie together. The Priest talked about the resurrection. I was happy to hear the name of Leslie from the Priest.

    After the Mass, Fuko, Marie, Molle, Simie, Angelina and I had a dinner together.

    We had a fun time together. :-) I like Chinese foods.

    After the dinner we went to Mandarin Oriental Hotel to see the sea of flowers.  Many beautiful flower stands and bouquets were there. I like to read the fan's messages to Leslie because I can feel our feeling to Leslie from their messages.  We love Leslie Cheung forever.

    I went to the flower shop to order bouquets in the morning. Then my friend and I went to 蓮香樓 in 上環.
    We had a great breakfast !!

    After the breakfast we walked the location of the movie "The Kid" and photo book "All about Leslie".

    We also went to Cat street and 文武廟. We went to Bi-weekly office to pick my ordered books up. I bought "Leslie Cheung Movie Posters collection" and "The Legacy of Leslie Cheung—–A soul on film" .

    After the short break, we went to Citywalk2.

    to be continue...

  • Mido Cafe

    March 30th

    I went to the air port to see my companion off in the morning and had breakfast there.
    In the afternoon I went shopping to 深水捗(Sham sui po), women's market, Sino centre, Men's market(Temple street) and Shaghai street.

    I found a LP as below at Sham sui po. It was HKD10!! I have this LP but I don't have a poster, so I was happy to get it.

    I also bought a LED fan at Sham sui po. It was wonderful!! I could show 6 English messages. It was HKD35.


    I had a dinner at Mido cafe on Temple street. I sat near the window, so I enjoyed the outside view. :-)

  • Charlie Brown Cafe

    March 29th

    I went to Charlie Brown Cafe in the morning. I wanted to come to this cafe. This cafe is not  in Japan. I don't know Leslie liked this cafe or not, but I know he liked snoopy.

    The sweets were so cute! My companion and I had a wonderful tea time. There was a quiet and comfortable cafe. We had a relaxation time.

    After that we went shopping to Sino centre and women's market. I bought a travel tea set (bag, 6 tea cups, a tea cup with a lid, 1 jug and tweezers) at the women's market. :-)

    I like this way of drinking Chinese tea. 
    I found Chinese poem on the tea cups. I checked where this poem comes from.

    卷583_42 《蓮花》溫庭筠


    I got this poem's source. This flower is a water lily but I can't get this poem's meaning.

    Franny, glad to know you will attend. Unfortunately I can only attend in spirit... sigh!
    This is a very spontaneuos event, not organized, we (LLA) only asked the authorities for permission to gather there as usual,
    so maybe it's better if every fan carries his/her own candle, or maybe a flower instead of a candle, if they prefer so.

    Would love to and with 2 of my friends planning around Nov, cooler season. So what's this event for Leslie on April 1?? I just emailed RedMission HKG for details.

    Hi Franny, haven't heard from you for some time. How are you doing? Could you list more details regarding Leslie's April 1 event?? Just returned from Singapore and catching up on emails, etc.

    Thanks for signing my guestbook. Last time I was in Japan I did a tour of most of the country but didn't have much time for sightseeing. This time i'm mostly doing western Honshu and Nagasaki - I have it mostly planned out now! Best wishes, Simon

    Hi, Jasmin. Thank you for your reply. I had visited Hong Kong Heritage Museum last April. I wrote a request card and put it on the boad. I wrote that I would like to see Leslie Cheung's concert custumes at the museum.
    I posted a journal on my Japanese blog.

    Hi Franny, thanks for replying.
    Originally from Singapore but have been living and working in Australia since 1986. Due to lack of exposure to Asian stars since '86 (hardly any mention in Oz, apart from Jackie Chan and Jet Li) and deprivation of many good movies,news, etc, I first discovered Leslie about 3 years ago in the movie "All's Well That Ends Well". Of course, it was too late to enjoy first hand experience any of Leslie's concerts by now but I love his last concert Passion Tour. It got class and style, full of emotion, electric and unforgettable. Comparing the concert dvd from his previous 2 concerts, it was different. He's always been very daring but there's something very different in the Passion Tour. From then on, I own many of his movie dvds and cds.
    First time visited Hong Kong last year and was glad Leslie is rememberd on the Walk of Fame. There's a section in the Hong Kong Cultural Museum in Shatin, New Territories, whereby tributes are given to past stars . I think Leslie should have been given a bigger exposure alongside Roman Tam. Check it out if you havent done so next time in HKG. I hope to return some time in 2009. What about you??
    Happy New Year to you and hope to hear from you again. Take care.

    Yes...Leslie was one of the best Male Singer !
    he was a good actor too.
    He is dearly missed by everyone.

    hello Franny, I log onto yr blog when I was checking the 'and' home page and saw Leslie's news. I, too, am a Leslie fan, albeit a late one but that doesn't mean I love him less. I planned to be in Hongkong for Leslie's anniversary last year in April but plans fell through. I'm so glad really dedicated fans like you organises events to remember this amazing talent.

    Hi Franny,

    I look forward to seeing your blog about Hong Kong. I was just visiting Washington, DC over the weekend and spent time with a Leslie fan. We are truly everywhere!
