The 1st Hong Kong International Laugh Festival

Well, we're down to the last week before the 1st ever Hong Kong International Laugh Festival happens and the world experiences its 1st ever all Cantonese comedy festival. We've all worked our butts off and I'm proud to say my team and I have got it 80% complete. Now all that's left are the final touches, some technical rehearsals and of course the actual shows.

You know what's crazy, so the festival goes from 4 Oct 2017 - 8 Oct 2017. On 7 Oct, I have to perform in Macau in the afternoon and then take the ferry back for the shows! Then on 8 Oct, I have to be in Sheung Shui for filming at 8:30am - 5pm for the new season of G-1 Fight Club. Like OMG?! How has everything fallen on these dates!?
Anyway, the good thing is they don't clash in their timings, so at least that means I can do everything, just it's a hectic schedule!

On the other hand, I'm super excited about the whole festival, it's been a really tough journey for everyone since it's the 1st time it's happening but at least it also means we are free to do whatever we want and create any sort of frame work as we like :)

Well how have things been for everyone out there? A lot of turns, last minute rushing, deadlines and lack of sleep on my end. My workouts have gone into the gutters (again) but mark my words, starting 10 Oct, it's go time and this year isn't ending with me and my current chubby gut and low stamina.

Oh and if you haven't and are planning to, do not watch the new IT movie. It absolutely sucks! Oh man, I was so looking forward to it, watched it and left thinking "how could you ruin it?! You even had the old movie as a benchmark of what you cannot ge below.." sigh, absolute trash. So that was a downer.

Otherwise, things are good and I just saw that Lego is releasing the Joker Manor set so I'm pretty screwed now. But the good thing is, my toys are still in boxes so my guilt is keeping me from getting anything else since so many of my wonderful items are still packed up and hidden away from the world's eyes of admiration...


Otherwise, so far so good I suppose. Let's see how crazy the next 10 days get.

Ah well the good thing with comedy is sometimes just being in the room of laughter is enough to get you giggling
