I meant to do this weeks ago...

It's official - I'm extremely lazy to blog when I have too many things to say about something. So, I'm gonna let the photos and videos speak for themselves -- Zhuang and my weekend with Andy Lau, director Daniel Yu, Lorna Tee (Focus Film's Marketing & Distribution Manager and all round superwoman) and Joe Yeung during the 49th San Francisco International Film Festival.





Andy FAQ:
Q. Is Andy just as good looking in person?
A. Yes, even better looking in person than on screen if you ask me. Great bone structure, helps that he has amazing posture.

Q. Is Andy obnoxious, pretentious or just Mr. All-Round Nice Guy?
A. Definitely a Mr. Nice Guy. How many celebs do you know would sit around with fans for an intimate meet-the-fans session to chat about their day and go bowling with them the same night? Andy does all that, and more.

Q. What is Andy's favorite film?
A. THE GODFATHER. Favorite film he's in - LOVE ON A DIET.

Q. What is Andy's bowling average?
A. 180-190

Q. What was the best part about the experience?
A. Discussing politics and film with Andy and Daniel over a cup of Peet's Coffee. Attempting to act nonchalant while strolling down Fillmore Street with Miguel the bodyguard and an entourage in tow. Andy bursting into song while we were waiting backstage in the dark (he sang as the ALL ABOUT LOVE credits was running). Laughing...a lot, over erm..."tong shui" (Sorry people, inside joke. Ask me about it when you see me in person)

Q. What was the worse thing about the experience?
A. The extremely rude manager at Cliff House at Sutro Baths who refused to give us a table by the window even though it was policy to give tables to customers on a first come first served basis. I definitely DO NOT recommend it.

Q. What do I personally think about Andy?
A. Extremely easy person to work with, surrounds himself with intelligent, hardworking people that he can trust. Charming, down-to-earth, and is very opinionated (in a good way) about film, directors and the Hong Kong film industry.


From L-R: Joe, Lorna, Daniel, Lin-Zhuang, me and the man himself, Andy Lau
