An Open Letter/Tweet/Plurk To Shu Qi

Dear Shu Qi,

If by chance you don’t marry Mr Lucky-Bastard-Chang when you are 35, will you marry me instead?

Yours truly and hoping to be truly yours,


What The Doctor Ordered

Posted by Ruok On June - 22 - 2009

So my doctor just called me up all of a sudden to tell me that he saw me on telly last night.

Apparently, they did a rerun of my Incredible Tales episode last year in a brand new rehash series called “The Best Of Incredible Tales”.

He told me he didn’t know it was me at first; in fact he was drawn to the episode because he thought the lead actor was acting very well. He was intrigued and wanted to know who this actor was, and as he watched he gradually found him more and more familiar. So he purposely waited until the credits rolled and lo and behold, much to his amazement, it was yours truly!

He told me my acting was very natural and that I’m really a good actor. Needless to say, by the end of the conversation, he had me beaming to the skies.

Audience appreciation, at a time when I’m at my most jaded, couldn’t be more timely I guess. But to be honest, I don’t know if this is enough for me to stay the course.

But more on this subject another time. Right now, I just want to bask in the moment a bit.

On another note, I guess this should prove beyond a shadow of a doubt I can do non-villiany roles. 😉

Screen Actors Guild

Posted by Ruok On June - 3 - 2009

Was busy prepping for my ICT and almost forgot that I wanted to share a response to the ongoing-but-seems-to-be-dying-off saga of the auditions for Just For Laughs.

I think she hits the nail right on the head.

The press did cover this too, but I can’t say they really explained the situation to the public. One thing’s clear though : We need better representation and protection as actors.

Perhaps now is the right time for a local screen actors guild.
