Hi everybody! Yesterday, I got on a 3am flight from India to Beijing. I didn’t get a chance to sleep and even had to clean my house when I got home. Today, everybody called to congratulate me on my rumored engagement. Afterward, everybody called me to see if I was alive.

 

If I died, I would probably tell the world! I took a photo with today’s date, just in case you don’t believe me! However, thank you all for your concern. Kiss kiss and love you all!

 

P.S. My dog is healthy, just like me! He doesn’t need surgery! By the way, my dogs are golden retrievers, not Labradors.

After New York, I went to Toronto and attended the Toronto Film Festival. Straight after attending an event there, I quickly rushed back to Beijing. But my schedule was so busy. I only spent less than half a day in Beijing and then I had to catch a six hour flight to New Delhi, India. By the time I arrived in India, it was already past 2:00am.

 

This time I was in India to attend the Chinese Film Festival. The last time I was here, I think was almost 10 years ago when I filmed The Myth. Unfortunately, because my schedule is so tight, I only stayed in India for one and a half days. I honestly have to say, the enthusiasm of my fans here is great! Apart from doing interviews with the media, organizers here suggested that I sing Country during the event. At that moment in time, I thought to myself, does the Indian audience understand what I sing? After singing the song, I truly believe that music has no borders because everyone in the audience clapped to the beat of the music.

After attending the official event, I made most of the time I had in India and visited a local charitable organization that specializes in helping women and children. I saw so many innocent faces and they all performed for me, dancing and singing songs. I kept asking my friends, how can I help them? I want to do my best to help these people.

At 3:00am, I had to board the plane again and take a 6 hour flight back to Beijing.

 

從多倫多趕回北京,留不了半天,晚上又乘6個小時的飛機到印度新德里,到達時已是凌晨兩點多,為了參加在當地舉辦的”中國電影節”。距離拍”神話”到現在,差不多十年了。這次只有一天半的行程,FANS的熱情有增無減。除了訪問,主辦方建議我唱”國家”,我還猶豫了一下,印度的觀眾能聽得懂嗎?事實證明,音樂無疆界,台下的觀眾,一齊跟著音樂的節奏拍手。

官方活動之餘,我又爭取時間訪問當地的一個專門救助婦女與小孩的慈善團體。看到一個個天真的臉孔,為我表演唱歌、舞蹈,我不斷問身邊的朋友,如何能盡我一點力幫助他們。

凌晨3點多,我又要上飛機了,6個小時后,北京又要歡迎我.

My schedule in New York these few days has been extremely tight and busy. Very early yesterday morning, I attended the HKETO (Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office) 30th Anniversary Press Conference. I had non-stop interviews, one after another. Afterwards, I had a chat with some of my fans who were also at the event. I was so surprised after talking to them. Why? First, over 90% of the audience were foreigners and not only were they very familiar with a movie I directed and starred in, Drunken Master II, they also had a great understanding of my other movies as well. If I wasn’t in a rush to attend another event, the Hong Kong Gala Dinner for HKETO, I really wanted to watch Drunken Master II again and relive the classic moments with my fans.

我在紐約行程非常緊密,昨天一早便參加HKETO30周年的記者會,專訪一個接一個,之后又去與影迷交流,出乎我意料,在場的觀眾超90%是外國人,他們不單止對”醉拳2”很熟悉,連我其他電影,他們都很了解,如果不是要趕著去參加香港貿發局的「香港晚宴」,我真想跟他們一齊重看我自己有參與導演的”醉拳2”

Last night, I was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award presented to me by the New York Asian Film Festival! Many guests attended the event as well, including current Chief Executive of Hong Kong SAR, Leung Chun-Ying, and a group of other officials. I was so excited when I accepted the award because it’s like my 53 years dedicated to the film industry has been recognized by everyone. I felt very happy. Furthermore, I also found out that I am one of the youngest recipients of this award! Unfortunately, it has been raining all day in New York today, and a lot of fans couldn’t buy tickets to attend the event and watch my movie, CZ12 (Chinese Zodiac). But, a lot of fans still stood in the rain just to wait and see me! I am so moved! Thank you all!!

昨天接受”紐約亞洲電影節”頒發給我的「終身成就獎」!出席嘉賓包括,香港特別行政區行政長官梁振英,和一眾官員。很興奮,獲得這個獎,是對我53年來為電影付出的一個肯定,很開心,因為我是其中一個最年輕獲得這個獎項的。紐約今天一直在下雨,很多影迷們買不到票進場看”十二生肖”,但是他們仍冒著雨等我,令我非常感動!謝謝你們
