DVD release party for my movie The People I’ve Slept With, and a celebration dinner at King Hua Restaurant.
The DVD for The People I’ve Slept With is finally out! It is available to buy, rent, and watch on demand!
Here is the star Karin Anna Cheung, alongside our director Quentin Lee autographing away.
Karin snaps this pic of me signing the butt double. Yes, that is right – that is not actually Karin’s ass on the cover.
The Release Party takes place at Gallery Nucleus, where we shoot parts of the movie.
Aside from being an art space, they also have a rather cool store!
Afterwards, Quentin takes us all out for a feast. The only nearby place open that late is King Hua Restaurant. And lucky for us, it is also delicious!
I’m not positive about everything he orders because it is all done in Cantonese. And I do not speak that language.
I also do not read it. But maybe someone can translate for me…
As a result, here’s what I’m able to gather from my own memory/knowledge of Chinese food. First comes my pick. These are Fried Prawns with Honey Creme Sauce and Candied Walnuts.
I didn’t grow up eating this dish, but when I discover it in my mid 20’s I become obsessed. And because of this, I order it every time it’s on a menu. Probably devour more than my share of it.
Next, Squab (or duck?!?) in Lettuce Cups with a hoisin-y sauce.
Jellyfish and Cucumber.
Bean Curd and Greens.
Tofu Medallions with Broccoli.
There is also rice but I only ate a few bites of it. Too preoccupied with the main dishes!!!
And then this magically appears….
…ladies and gentleman: Kabocha Squash with Oxtail and Gravy, a.k.a. the reason I will not be hungry again til Friday since I can NOT stop scooping out that yumminess!
Look at that hollow shell that is left. That is mostly because of my chopsticks.
The meal ultimately comes to an end with the house dessert, which is a sweet soup with tapioca and sweet potato.
But honestly, I can only manage a few sips of this soup dessert because I am ready to burst!
It’s been a long road getting this film made. But I am so grateful to celebrate and finally put the project to bed last night with the rest of the crew.
Thanks Quentin, Koji, Stanley, and Karin!!! Such an honor to be a part of your baby.
