Shinjuku Incident (新宿事件) Screened on Cable Channel 62 lately

Last year I had to rush off & didn't manage to catch Jackie Chan & Daniel Wu who came to Plaza Singapura to promote their new Movie - Shinjuku Incident (新宿事件). Also known as 新宿インシデント) in Japan.

I finally caught Shinjuku Incident couple of days back on cable. Really enjoyed the strong cast & the story line.

Director Derek Yee spent 10 years preparing for this film... was further delayed when he decided to wait for buddy Jackie Chan who was filming Rush Hour 3 - Yee felt Chan was most suited for the role of "Steelhead".

Other Guest Cast include:

" Inspector Kitano" - Steelhead's police friend by Naoto Takenaka (竹中 直人)

- remember the funny "self-declared" music teacher of Swing Girls? 

Also, Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) as "Lily", Steelhead's pretty girl friend

Fan (冰冰) rose to stardom after the successful taiwanese periodic TV drama - Princess Pearl (还珠格格) Huan Zhu Ge Ge

She also starred next to Andy Lau in "Battle of Wits"  (墨攻)

Ji Ji Wanton Noodle Specialist @ New Hong Lim Complex Market

For fans of Wanton noodle, the famous Ji Ji Wanton Specialist from Hong Lim Complex has been relocated to an adjacent street - Upper Pickering Street. 
This temporary relocation will take about 1 year while the existing market is undergoing a major revamp...

What's so amazing about this noodle stall other than their top Wanton noodles & Soy Sauce Chicken noodles is that the lady in green have such incredible memory in taking orders. She's able to summarize all the "mix & match" orders from different customers (easily more than 7) for the chef whenever there's a long queue.

The temp Hong Lim complex Market & Food Centre

Will the food be as good as before after the renovation? Let's wait & find out a year later...
