Recently, I’ve been supporting a group of environmentally friendly artists in Shanghai. These creative teachers and students have come together and started the LOOP movement, using old recycled materials to build new things. Today, they gave me a very special gift ~ a portrait made from over 33,000 recycled buttons! They explained how the process of making this picture was actually quite complicated. If you look closely, there are so many layers, each overlapping each other, giving it a 3D effect. On average, it took them approximately 8 minutes to place one button on the picture, which adds up to over 4400 hours in total! I’m truly very happy to receive this special gift. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big heartfelt thank you to the amazing LOOP team. Thank you.

我在上海支持的一班为环保艺术创作的老师和同学们(LOOP活动),今天他们特别为我送上一幅用了33,000多粒回收的钮扣所制成的画。制作过程繁复,一层一层重叠,平均需要8分钟完成一粒钮扣,而且还是3D的,所以共花了4400多小时完成。真的很开心,谢谢他们的礼物!

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 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.
