1997 was the handover of Hong Kong and no matter where I go, I’m very proud to say that I am Chinese. That year during the Handover Ceremony Variety Show, I sang “Long De Chuanren” (《龍的傳人》- ‘Descendants of the Dragon’), and I remember the lyrics: “there’s a dragon in the ancient East, and its name is called China” (「古老的東方有一條龍,它的名字就叫中國。」). At a blink of an eye, 25 years have passed already. Last night on the ‘Hong Kong 25th Handover Anniversary Grand Variety Show’, I sang “Zhonghua Liliang” (《中華力量》- ‘The Force of China’). While singing the lyrics: “our country is strong for me, I am strong for our country, I look to the East, strong China!” ( “國為我強,我為國強,看我東方,中華強”), my heart was filled with blessings for our motherland and our compatriots. I pray and hope that our country remains prosperous, safe, and forever peaceful.

I woke up this morning to some sad and heart-breaking news.
Alex Law K.Y is an extremely talented and creative script writer and director. Some of his memorable classics include “An Autumn’s Tale” 《秋天的童話》, “Painted Faces” 《七小福》, “Echos of the Rainbow” 《歲月神偷》, just to name a few. I’ve worked on many projects with Alex and his partner, director Mabel Cheung. Many years ago, Mabel helped me complete a documentary “Traces of a Dragon” 《龍的深處》, which was mainly about me and my family. Then later, Alex and Mabel made a film based on the love story of my parents called “A Tale of Three Cities” 《三城記》. I’m always deeply grateful for their work. This morning, I heard the sad and shocking news of Alex passing. My emotions haven’t been able to settle since. My deepest condolences to director Mabel Cheung….. having to say goodbye, one after another, is a heartfelt reminder to cherish our friendships and the people close to us: 「Some things, we will always remember forever」.

Later in the afternoon, I heard another piece of shocking news. What’s happening today?… My staff told me that respected Hong Kong writer, Mr. Ni Kuang, also passed away. He’s a very well-known and gifted novelist, a magnificent representation of an era in time, will always remember him! RIP. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
