Cannes Day 2: Finally saw some celebrities

I'm staying in a hotel at Juan Le Pins, which is one station away from Cannes.

As I took a walk around, I realized Juan Le Pins is quite a charming little place.

Ming Jin and his wife Tomoko, along with our main actress Fooi Mun, finally arrived in the afternoon.

We headed off to Cannes, collected their badges, got more information about THE TIGER FACTORY's screenings on the 21st, had a look at the Quinzaine Club that we had free access to on the 5th floor of the Palais Stephanie hotel.

Then as we were about to leave the hotel, we saw a crowd gathered outside, in a frenzy.

They were mobbing Jean-Claude Van Damme.

He was heading to the gala screening of Mike Leigh's competition entry, ANOTHER YEAR.

We waded through the crowd and saw a line of nice black cars that were also heading to the screening. One car had the name 'Michelle' pasted in front. We then noticed that it was Malaysia's own (Dato) Michelle Yeoh, in the car. She was busy talking to some other guy.

"I wonder whether she knew that a Malaysian film is in Cannes too." Fooi Mun mused as we continued our way.
