Wow. I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I last wrote in my diary. Lately, I’ve been very busy filming my new movies. Earlier this year was Dragon Blade. Now, I’m filming a new movie called Skiptrace.

First of all, I’d like to say a big heartfelt “THANK YOU” to all my fans for your donations to my Build a School for a Dollar project! My staff told me about the recent donations and even though we haven’t received as many donations as in previous years, I’m still very happy to see so many fans from all over the world supporting this project.

Remember, every dollar you donate, I will match it with another dollar! And because I will display your donations in my JC Film Gallery in Shanghai, I will replace your dollar with another dollar from my pocket. So every dollar you donate, I will match it with two dollars. Keep your donations coming in! I love seeing your creative drawings and it makes me so happy.

首先,謝謝所有朋友的關心。兒子房祖名出了這樣的事,我感到非常憤怒,也非常震驚!作為公眾人物,我很羞愧,作為父親,我很心痛,尤其是他的母親,更是心碎。希望青少年以祖名的教訓為戒,遠離毒品的侵害。在此,也對祖名說:做錯了事,要承擔後果。身為你的父親,我願意與你共同面對未來之路。最後,我教子無方,也要負起責任,並替祖名一起向社會公眾,深深鞠躬道歉。 謝謝大家!


First of all, I’d like to thank everyone for your care and concerns. The recent news about my son, Jaycee, is very shocking and the impact it has caused on society is heartbreaking. When I first heard the news, I was absolutely enraged. As a public figure, I feel very ashamed; as his dad, I’m very sad and disappointed. But the person who feels heartbroken the most is his mom. I hope our younger generation will learn from Jaycee’s mistake and stay far away from drug abuse. I would like to take this opportunity and say to Jaycee: you’ve done something wrong and you have to be responsible for the consequences. I’m your dad and I’ll always be with you. We will face the road ahead of us together. I should also take some of this responsibility because as his dad, I didn’t teach him well. Therefore, on behalf of Jaycee and myself, I extend our deepest apologies to everyone for the negative impact this has caused on society. Thank you.

I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t had time to write my diary in a very long time! I promise I will update you all soon because I have to tell you about my birthday party, Love and Peace concert, fan club meeting, and my Jackie Chan Film Gallery in Shanghai.

But first of all, I want all my fans to know that my Jackie Chan Film Gallery in Shanghai is officially open to the public! I spent over 5 years on this project. I’m now 60 years old and have spent over 53 years making movies. Now, my life in movie making can all be seen at my JC Film Gallery. Each area, every figure, every prop has their own little story. I wish I could explain all the things to you myself! If you have a chance to visit Shanghai, I hope you can come visit my gallery. After visiting my gallery, don’t forget to tell me what you think and tell me if you have any suggestions.

I just spent almost 12 hours on the plane flying from Hong Kong to London. This visit was only a quick stop and I just stayed for one night and then left again.

When I arrived in London, it was 05:00 in the morning. While I was eating breakfast, I saw so many people jogging outside the window. So I decided to go for a jog as well and dragged my American Manager out with me. Wow, Hyde Park is so beautiful! And the fresh air is so refreshing.

 

十几個小時飛到倫敦,只停留一個晚上就離開,抵達的時間是凌晨五點,吃完早餐看到窗外那么多人都在跑步,我也干脆拉上美國經理人一起去跑,海德公園新鮮的空气真讓人開心!

My staff told me that legendary film pioneer, Run Run Shaw, passed away. My heart dropped when I heard the news. It’s hard to describe my feelings.

Thinking back to when I was young, when I just started makin movies, I remembered how much I respected and admired the Shaw Brothers. They worked so hard to establish an empire in the film industry. Mr. Shaw once said, establishing a business and earning money was a typle of satisfaction; distributing money and donating funds was a kind of pleasure.

When I finally had the ability to help others, I always took Mr. Shar as my model example. No matter what the future has planned for me, be it film making or charitable work, I will promise to continue doing my best.
