Movie of Asoka

This is my first time to watch Indian movie titled “Asoka” by Bollywood, produced in 2001 from www.ppstream.con which in Chinese subtitled. (You can click here to see the movie cover)

After watched this movie, I love it! This movie had described the history of King Asoka of India which born in B.C.304.

In Asoka movie, the actress Kareena_Kapoor a.k.a Princess Kaurwaki was super beautiful! I like the romantic part of this historical movie very much, some traditional scene which the actress and the actor singing and dancing was produced and cast in MTV style, which really interesting to me.

There are a ‘Getal’(歌台)(a singing performance stage) down here!“Getai” show usually only happened during Chinese seventh month or during some Chinese God’s birthday’s celebration, but nowadays, it became more popular in various type of celebrations and festivals in Singapore.

The Kangxi Emperor Exhibition

Just went Asian Civilisations Museum today and see the Kangxi Emperor Exhibition, this is my second time went to this exhibition. I think I must see the great portrait drawing of the King Kangxi and related Manchurian king’s large size drawing, which most of them drawn and framed in about 4meter x 7meter !Most of this drawing was drawn in western style which you can see some three dimension background instead of the traditional Chinese painting style. Most of the painting was done by Giuseppe Castiglione (郎世宁). I can’t believe my eyes when the first time I seen it, because each of these portrait was spent few years to complete and the detail was unbelievable great! You really have to see by your own eyes! Yup, all of those portrait painting was original copies!

One of the artwork exhibited in this exhibition I loved very much was a gift that King Kangxi gave to his grand mother, which is a Chinese calligraphy “Heart Sutra” (般若波罗蜜多心经)written in gold pigment son paper, I found King Kangxi’s hand writing was real amazing, of course, that was the hand writing by the King!

There are many nice scenes surrounding Asian Civilisations Museum.The Fullerton Hotel just opposite.My favourite Nasi Lemak at Golden Show Hawker Centre.

Choo and Geen’s Acrobatic

I just came across Choo and Geen’s website (http://www.chooandgeen.4t.com/) which done by me very long ago. Thought I was not seeing them in the events recent years, maybe I not in the right time to meet them in the events or could be they had been retired or either keep doing their performance around the world.Talking about Choo and Geen, they are one of the longest and oldest acrobatic and magician in Singapore. If I am not wrong, My Choo is in his 66 and his wife in her 63 now. The last time I saw Choo and Geen about 2005, there are really fit and strong, much stronger than me! Haahaa! See their stunning performance you can proof it!

Paper Cutting

Just struggling of preparing some Chinese paper cutting for an coming event during the past 2 weeks. Doing a real Chinese paper cutting or related paper art, you need time and patients plus some cutting skills.In the paper cutting art, you need to present the nice design of the artworks, at least we need to apply some design especially the related traditional Chinese decoration patterns.

I had came across some complaint about some people just do cutting on the Chinese characters and they called it ‘Chinese Paper Cutting’, I had check which some seniors China artist and related reference books, none of them agree such cutting as Chinese Paper Cutting, unless the artist produce the Chinese character in paper cutting with some design and patterns like this (given by a senior paper cutting artist):

I just copied and did a sample which some event people and guests ever complained as ‘cheating’ Chinese paper cutting:As in a “Globalization” world nowadays, there are many people had been traveled to many countries and they had been seeing so many kind of artworks, as a professional artists we need to be always trying to improve ourselves, there are always having people can tell whether your skill is real of fake.
