Jackie Chan come Singapore lohh!!!

Well, I keep forgetting to update about my last day at the childcare centre and the updates with Yellow Chair.
And then, I get news like this hot off the press since I was there!

And today, the movieXclusive gang went to meet a certain Mr. Chan.
Jackie Chan.
He's in town to promote his upcoming movie, The Myth!

And here's our press pass!



Press Pass~!

There was a press conference at NLB's Pod and *grumble grumble* to those who went and saw the magnificent view from the forbidden area.

Anyhoo, our dear Richard managed to borrow his parents' car and we headed for the Botanic Gardens. No, it wasn't to shoot a scene for his latest film.
They were nice enough to name a flower after him.
This following in the footsteps of Ricky Martin, Bae Yong Jun and Shah Rukh Khan who've all had flowers named after them at the Botanic Gardens.
The crowd at the secluded area of the gardens were closely guarded and when Richard drove in, it almost became a scene from an action movie. We could hear the walkie-talkies saying things like "Car Number XXX has entered the premises when it's not allowed to. Please check.)

Anyhoo, Jackie Chan arrived soon after with director Stanley Tong and co-star Mallika Sherawat (!!!!!!!!!!!)
Below are the pics from the flower naming ceremony. I don't quite remember the breed of the orchid lah but the article will be up on movieXclusive.com pretty soon yeah. Enjoy these first!

Jackie names his flower...

Isn't he the proud one?

And they all got a bouquet each...

And after about 20 minutes, they were whisked away and the ceremony ended just like that lah. Maids on leave and tourists had a pleasant surprise shouting "Jackie Chan! Jackie Chan!"
How often you come to Singapore and you see people like Jackie Chan yeah? At Botanic Gardens some more!

And then, we had our dinner at Bugis followed by the panel discussion on Asian Cinema with Jackie Chan and Stanley Tong. It lasted for about 45 minutes or so and was conducted in Mandarin. I tried looking over at Richard's notebook in which he was furiously scribbling notes. But I must say that it was great having Jackie Chan, International Superstar about 5 metres away from me. We were in the very first row. Hehe. Got media passes mah.
But eh, the flower naming one better leh! About 3 metres away from us only.

BUT.

We didn't get a chance to take a personal photo with Jackie Chan. Too many bouncers and we had the NLB Drama Centre door slammed on us as the entourage exited. At this point, Richard managed to give them the slip AND managed to ONLY get a handshake. Lucky him!

Anyhoo, Richard told us briefly about what was said during the discussion. Again, the report will be up soon on movieXclusive.com.
Do check it out! Meanwhile, more pics!
