Off to Saigon for four days!


auyai

We're looking at actors and locations. There'll be auditions and lots of looking around for suitable places to shoot.

Wish us luck. I'll be back on Friday, inshaallah. Then it's Taipei on Saturday.

Hi Yasmin,

I learnt about you through the short clip , "Family" that has won the MediaCorp TV's viewers award.

I am an emotional man who believes in the importance of family ties. I acted on my belief and created http://www.holdinghands.sg/ in Feb 09. I wanted to remind the population to love themselves and their parents too as they will not be there forever.

I observed nowadays most young married couples focus on their own family and neglect their parents. They treat their parents like maids and are only good for taking care of their children during the day.

I hope you can share with the Asians, in your next production on family values, to remind the younger population about our parents. The message I thought of is to hold our parents hand and walk with them as they walked us when we were toddlers. If we treat our parents badly, most probably our children will do the same to us. Remember the phrase," Children See, children follow"

I wish you have a nice day and hope to have an opportunity to discuss with you on the subject family. Hope you can take some time to visit http://www.holdinghands.sg/.

Thank you

Chin Hock

i know that I'm not "leng zhai", talented or as charismatic as your actors are but i am VERY PASSIONATE about working with you. i guess you can tell that because you have a good sense of judgment upon characters.

hope that we can work togather someday.
i will be looking forward to that.
God bless and take care=)

I have to say - you make amazing movies and superb ads. I love them :-)

jitseng said...

Wow, Saigon! How exciting!

Anyway, you flying there got me thinking, my dear.

There's this guy who is looking for a job with an airline - he has a Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Technology(Airframe & Engine).

Huh?!? Aiyoh...I don't know how to place people like thislah, ha ha ha...

Since you know Mr Air Asia personally, would it be okay if you pull strings a little?

Can I send his CV to you at your
yasminthestoryteller@gmail.com address?

Your kindness would be blessed by God Almighty, I'm sure, dearie.

I love this pianist, Yiruma. His music makes me feel peaceful. Especially with 'river flow in you'.

And everytime I hear his music, I think about your work of arts as to his work of arts.
