The Olympic game is just right at the corner, last week I got to meet with a few US Table Tennis Olympians before they head to London in July: Ariel Hsing, Lily Zhang and Timothy Wang.
It has been ages since I last posted an entry. I've been spending my time writing two screenplays and also working on a video project with some friends.
Anyway, my friends and I went to Oakland and shot some footage last week, it was partly for the project we are doing, and partly because we just wanted to learn more about what is happening after seeing/reading so much about the Occupy movement there.
In the Bay Area, Oakland is always the spotlight of the occupy movement, violent protest, conflicts, gun fig...Read more
I've just read an article and the writer (who is also a filmmaker and film festival programmer) questions the existing value of film festival as the technology of streaming video is becoming more and more advanced.

I was watching the news just now, seeing the crowd celebration in NY somehow reminds me of the final scene of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi when the rebels are celebrating the Emperor's death...
Will the world become safer? or will there be more bin Laden in the future?
Seeing the social media panel ad, it just kinda reminded me of a question I got asked a few times before by my friends:
friends: "Hey, man, your blog sucks, there is no sexy girls and you talk about crap every time, how can you get so many views?"
me: "Thank Edison..."
Certainly, reputation is the most important. If you're Andy Lau or Stephen Chow, everyone would like to check out what you are saying, you don'...Read more

I just read this news and really think it is ridiculous for the college student to make a fuss over such a matter!
In short, this arrogant college senior needed input for a paper she is writing and she called apple's media relation department in vain. She then wrote email to Steve Job...Read more
Went on a trip to Caribbean Sea, check the photo album if you're interested. The Mayan ruins is definitely the place that impressed most. I have always been a fan of the ancient civilization, be it Maya, Inca or others early civilization, so it was really great being there, touching the walls and seeing it with my own eyes.. nice experience!
Right now i'm working on something...Read more
Not sure if anyone heard of this website before: http://www.kickstarter.com/
Someone forwarded this site to me, and It looks like a promising way to raise fund for creative projects, and also kinda reminds me of another website www.chipin.com. Certainly, it is always not easy to raise money for something usually considered as non productive or without money making potential, but it's not bad to gi...Read more
