The Kid From The Big Apple Official Trailer

This locally made Chinese film is officially up in cinema today. It isn't any huge production, in fact I did not know about this film until I read it in the TheStar paper today. This story is about a young gal hails from NY to live with his grandpa which character was starred by Ti Lung (a famous former HK martial arts artist). But what makes this film kinda nostalgic was the backdrop at a familiar neighbourhood where my late maternal grandma stays. 

That quaint lil flat used to be a gathering place for family & relatives on every weekend & festive day. I like to hang out at the balcony overlooking the opposite houses and seeing new buildings mushrooming from afar (Yulek was developing back then). But my most memorable event was the morning stroll with grandma to the morning market for dim sum...and the eat-outs at the Yong Tau Foo stalls jst below our block.
This flat surely look colourful in the movie scene, jst like how it was 20 years ago...

Did you go and watch the movie then? How about those CNY movies, like The Mermaid, Macau to Vegas 3 and The Monkey God 2, did you watch them?

Libby: I seldom watch CNY movies in cinema and nope I did not watch this movie either. I heard that the Mermaid was kinda nice, but I've read the entire synopsis from wiki, so no need to go watch anymore ;-)

Interesting! I like Singaporean movies by Jack Neo and we went with my better half's family for CNY movies so we'll probably go for this one this weekend before Ching Ming. I'll go and book the tickets! :)

Mun: yea in Cheras. I tink this movie isn't publicize widely. Many didn't heard about it.

Huai Bin: This isn't a SG production. Anyway, this is somewhat another MY Chinese production with HK stars similar to the recent 'Let's eat' movie. Wow, u r fast in booking tickets, haha!
