A milestone was achieved in Malaysian Chinese cinema Tuesday night as the Chinese Film Association of Malaysia 馬來西亞中文影視協會 (CFAM) conducted the First Golden Wau Awards 第一届金箏獎 (GWA 2013) - Malaysia’s very first Chinese-language film awards.

Glamorous Hong Kong actress Kara Hui 惠英红 became the recipient of the very first Golden Wau Award of the night when she was named Best Supporting Actress 最佳女配角 for The Wedding Diary 结婚那件事 (2011) while local filmmaker Jack Lim 林德荣 nabbed the Best Supporting Actor 最佳男配角 award for Great Day 天天好天 (2011), which also bagged the Best Director 最佳导演 award for Chiu Keng Guan 周青元.

However, top contender Ice Kacang Puppy Love 初戀紅豆冰/初恋红豆冰 (2010) was the biggest winner of the night with five awards: Best Movie 最佳电影, Best Actress 最佳女主角 for Lee Sinje 李心潔/李心洁, Best Cinematography 最佳摄影 for Yong Choon Lin 楊俊麟/杨俊麟, Best Editing 最佳剪接 for Victor Wai Tuck 林偉德/林伟德, and Best Art Design 最佳美术 for Too Wen Huel 傅文輝/傅文辉. A good haul for local filmmaker Aniu (Tan Kheng Seong) 阿牛 (陳慶祥/陈庆祥)’s directorial debut, considering Ice Kacang Puppy Love 初戀紅豆冰/初恋红豆冰 (2010) was the movie that kick-started the revival in local Chinese cinema.

Meanwhile, prominent Singaporean filmmaker Jack Neo 梁智強/梁智强 took home the Best Actor 最佳男主角 award for his crossdressing role in Homecoming 笑着回家 (2011) as well as The Most Popular Singaporean Film 最受歡迎新加坡電影 for We Not Naughty 孩子不壞/ 孩子不坏 (2012).

SImilarly, local triad movie Kepong Gangster 甲洞 (2012) also grabbed two awards: Best Sound Effects 最佳音效 by Taiwan’s most prolific sound designer Tu Duu Chih 杜篤之 and Best Original Score 最佳音乐 by the movie’s director Teng Bee 馬逸騰/马逸腾 and composer Stanley Fam 范翔登.

Controversial musician/filmmaker Namewee (Wee Meng Chee 黄明志)’s maiden movie effort Nasi Lemak 2.0 辣死你媽/辣死你妈 (2011) won for Best Screenplay by Ryon Lee 李勇昌 while his second film Hantu Gangster 鬼老大哥大 (2012) won for Best Theme Song (We Are Gangster).

Veteran artistes Datuk Lai Meng 拿督黎明 and Hon Ying 韩瑛 were presented with the Pioneer Award 先锋奖 - a lifetime achievement award recognizing their contributions to the local Chinese entertainment industry since the 1950s.

Audiences were entertained by the quick change and glass harp performances in between the hilarious short films made by award-winning filmmaker Ho Yu Hang 何宇恒 to poke fun at the top eight nominees for Best Film.

Local emcees like TP Lim 林忠彪, Siow Hui Mei 萧慧敏, Gan Jiang Han 顏江翰/颜江翰 hosted the awards ceremony while Dennis Gan 颜小丹, Dylan Liong 梁佑诚 and Mayjune Tan 陈美君 emceed the red carpet event.

Apart from the award-winning Hui, international celebrity guests who graced the event included Hong Kong actor Eric Tsang 曾志偉/曾志伟, film producer Nansun Shi 施南生, director Oxide Pang 彭順, and actress Elanne Kwong 江若琳; Singapore’s Mark Lee 李國煌/李国煌 and Henry Thia 程旭輝/程旭辉; and Taiwan’s Tu Duu Chih 杜篤之 and Jo Yeh Ju Feng 葉如芬/叶如芬.

Modelled after Taiwan’s Golden Horse Awards 金馬獎, the inaugural GWA included a seven day-long film festival featuring screenings of short films and seminars with film directors.

Local movie buffs who missed the awards show may catch it on Astro AEC on October 27 at 3.30pm.

cheap vegan living tip #12
homemade vegan dog food
i had my dog on this vegan food, but it was crazy expensive. he was going through two $35 bags each month, and i couldn’t swing it anymore. so i started making his food. turns out, you can make vegan dog food pretty cheaply, and my dog loves it!
about every 5-7 days, i cook 2 cups brown rice along with a small bag of dried beans or lentils. this is a good base, which you can refrigerate safely if you don’t leave it out too long after cooking.  every day (or twice a day), i fill my dog’s bowl halfway with this mixture, then add frozen vegetables and fruits. my dog likes sweet potatoes, mixed vegetables, and blueberries. i sometimes heat it in the microwave for a minute, but he also likes it cold. since doing this, i only spend about $20/month on food for my dog, as opposed to $70 for vegan food, or even $35 or so for non-vegan food.
please note that some human foods are bad for dogs, so please check this list before starting to make food for your dog friends: http://m.humanesociety.org/animals/resources/tips/foods_poisonous_to_pets.html

Show (Lo) time

Heavy rain and flash floods didn’t stop fans from having a raving good time at the Show Lo concert.

Star-struck: Taiwanese pop star Show Lo acknowledging his adoring Malaysian fans during his Over The Limit 2013 World Tour Live in Malaysia at Genting’s Arena Of Stars.Star-struck: Taiwanese pop star Show Lo acknowledging his adoring Malaysian fans during his Over The Limit 2013 World Tour Live in Malaysia at Genting’s Arena Of Stars.

By SETO KIT YAN

We’ve heard of concert venues filling up with fans hours before showtime. But, nothing prepared us for what happened at the Show Lo concert at Arena Of Stars in Genting Highlands last Friday – heavy downpour had left some fans stranded on their way up the hilltop resort while flash floods damaged some equipment, resulting in an hour’s delay.

Having already staged his Over The Limit World Tour in Taipei (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai (China), Lo remained as cool as the weather in Genting. He even joked that his crew members had to swim into the concert venue through chest-high flood waters to get things going.

Still, the show must go on. When the lights went off, the only thing brighter than the neon pink stars that fans were waving was Lo’s ultra-glitzy mirrored suits.

Dubbed “Asia’s Dance King” by the Taiwanese media for his nifty footwork and slick dance hits, Lo kicked off the Malaysian leg of his tour with a quick succession of his uptempo numbers like You Wo Zai (Count On Me), Only U, and Wu Ji Xian (Over The Limit).

Lo, 33, easily charmed fans by declaring his affection in Bahasa Malaysia – “aku cinta padamu!” – and even stopped to pose for a “selfie” (taking a picture of oneself) on stage with thousands of cheering fans behind him.

Fans sang along to his medley of easy-listening Mandopop tunes likeGao Xiao (Making Jokes), Ai Ru Fei Fei (Love In Fantasy), Wo Bu Hui Chang Ge (I Don’t Know How To Sing), and Xi Guan Jiu Hao (I’ll Get Used To It).

Die-hard Show Lo fans like Wendy Law and Halvir even prepared numerous colourful “We heart Show” banners and went around briefing everyone to hold them up during the encore, when fans chanted the singer’s name (Lo Zhi Xiang).

After strutting his stuff on stage with cool dance moves, Lo had a field day revealing his wacky side by clowning around during the second half of the show, just like his fun persona in Yu Le Bai Fen Bai (100% Entertainment), the entertainment variety programme he has been hosting in Taiwan since 2003.

Lo, who was cast in a hilarious role as a martial arts expert with a delicate constitution in Stephen Chow’s rollicking fantasy adventureJourney To The West (2013)had the audience in stitches especially with a bizarre episode involving Gong Linna’s wildly quirky wordless viral hit Tan Te (Disturbed) – think Hong Kong comedian Chapman To’s side-splitting cover in All’s Well Ends Well 2011.

This ended with a light-hearted version of his banana act.

Whether he was goofing around or dancing up a storm or serenading his fans, Lo looked good doing whatever he did.

With nine Mandarin albums and three Japanese releases to his name, Lo said that many pop stars have fans who continue to support them through the decades, and then wished for the same with fans who will “still be with me till we are 60”.
