I’ve been very busy the past few days, attending events in different places around the world. The other night, I was at the closing ceremony for the Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF). When I walked on the stage, Luc Besson welcomed me with a big hug, then lifted me up and spun me around a few times.

Soon after the BJIFF ceremony ended, I rushed to the airport and began my long flight from Beijing to Italy. After 11 hours on the plane, we finally arrived in Udine, Italy. Why am I here? To attend the Far East Film Festival (FEFF)! Actually, FEFF have invited me to attend this festival for 17 years already. But each time I’ve had to turn them down because of my busy schedule. This time, I finally made it. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Udine for your continual sincerity over the many years and your perseverance to invite me to your city.


Udine is such a beautiful little city and of course I wanted to go out and explore the streets. But as soon as I walked out of my hotel, I was surrounded by so many enthusiastic fans.



Dragon Blade was the opening film for the FEFF. When they started to play the film, I hid to one side and watched the viewers watching my film. I honestly think that movies are a universal language. Even though Dragon Blade was not in Italian, I noticed how all the viewers in the theatre watched in awe and with full attention.


Towards the end of the movie, I saw quite a few people in the crowd silently wiping tears from their faces. And when the film ended, applause filled the theatre filled that lasted for nearly 5 minutes. Director Daniel Lee Yan Kong was also with me and we both felt so touched by their reaction.

Organizers of FEFF also awarded me the Golden Mulberry Life Achievement Award. I think this award looks very special, don’t you think?

I visited Oriental DreamWorks with my two pandas, La & Zy the other day.


We had a quick tour around the office….



And met their amazing team!


I can’t say too much about my current filming project at the moment. All I can say is….. Kung Fu Panda 3.

Yesterday, I flew to Kuching, Malaysia to attend the ASEAN International Film Festival and Awards 2015 (AIFFA) event. I was so happy when I arrived because I saw so many passionate fans welcoming me.


But the happiest thing of all was meeting with my old friend, Michelle Yeoh. I truly cherish every moment and opportunity we have to see each other because we’re usually so busy that we don’t get a chance to even meet. In my new book, I also wrote a section just about her!


I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the organizers of AIFFA and awarding me the ASEAN Inspirational Award. Thank you all for trusting me and I am very grateful for your support! Thank you.

I’m so happy today! Not only did my fans give me presents on my birthday, they also gave me money for my Build a School for a Dollar project. Don’t worry my dear fans! Every dollar you donate, I will match that donation with another dollar. If you donate $1000, I will match that donation with another $1000. I know that fans from all over the world have sent me gifts and donations for my birthday, including fans from Russia, USA, China, Poland, France, Italy, Ukraine, Australia, India…. many many places! I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big heartfelt thank you for all your kind wishes. I don’t know if you saw my message on Facebook. Just in case you didn’t, I’ll write it here as well:

It seems like it was only yesterday when I celebrated my 60th birthday with my fans in Beijing. Before you know it, one year has passed already. I don’t know where all the time has gone!

I know that many fans from all over the world want to send presents to me. Firstly, I’d like to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you for all your kind thoughts. I truly appreciate your support. My only wish this year is for my fans not to think of me by sending me gifts, but to first think of the people around you; think of your community; and think of charity. Instead of sending presents for my birthday, you can use that money and donate it to my Dragon’s Heart Build a School for a Dollar Project. This would be the best gift I could ever receive. So remember, don’t send me presents this year! If you give one dollar to my Build a School for a Dollar Project, I will match your donation with another dollar! My lovely staff in Hong Kong will help gather all your donations. Here is the postage address for my office in Hong Kong:

Build a School for a Dollar Project
The JC Group
No. 70 Pak To Avenue
Clear Water Bat Road
Clear Water Bay

This year, I didn’t do anything special to celebrate my birthday, but I’m still very happy because of YOU. Thank you all for your gifts!
