Happy birthday, Mom. She has a fan-made music video (not done by me)!

Today (November 17th) is my Mom's birthday.

That's her during Mother's Day.

These are albums of hers during her singing days before she married Dad.

Dug out old records of mom (she was a singer before marriage) to use as film props


This was an April 2011 special feature by Malaysian Chinese newspaper China Press where they interviewed me and Mom (sorry, in Chinese only), which basically focuses on how she ended up raising, horrors of horrors, a filmmaker. (she and Dad did numerous film marathons when pregnant)

It seems that her birthday is pointed out every year on this blog, even though I didn't notice it.

Last year, I noted that her birthday (and a few of my dear cousins) occur in successive days. (the parallels between this year and last year were striking. Last year, a week before her birthday, I suffered an epic food poisoning. This year, a week before her birthday, I had a rather bad flu. Last year, on the days leading up to her birthday, I was rushing on a feature-length script for a pitching session at Torino. This year, on the days leading up to her birthday, I was once again rushing on a feature-length script for a pitching session at Taipei. Both cities start with 'T')

Two years ago, I talked about how Mom endorsed an Organic restaurant (it's not everyday you walk into a restaurant and see newspaper clipping of your own mom framed on the wall).

Three years ago, I posted numerous videos of my mom, including a rare video interview that I managed to dig out by accident.

This year, again, I managed to dig out a recently-uploaded fan video of one of my mom's songs.



Happy birthday Mom.
