Dream Home (2010) - Wai Do Lei Ya Yat Hou (Victoria #1)

Dream Home (2010) - Pang Ho Cheong (D)

Josie Ho, Eason Chan, Derek Tsang, Lawrence Chou, Yip Shuen, Juno Mak, Wong Ching

NOTE : Not suitable for pregnant ladies and those who can't take on-your-face violent scenes.

I now understand why when the movie was shown in one of the smaller film festival (in Italy if I am not wrong....), one of the audience, a middle-aged uncle had a heart-attack. Of course, the whole premise of the film is its gore scenes but being a movie by Pang, it's not just some gore scenes galore.

At the same time, you know it's Josie's vehicle when she produce the movie herself. Too bad she lost Best Actress to Carina Lau but she will get it one day though it might not be the best deserved role (just like Carina).

Pang is one of the new directors who in a way offered some hope to the deteriorating HK cinema. His other feature, Love in A Puff, which is TOTALLY different from this; was a rare gem that came out of the HK cinema in the recent years. I REALLY hope the sequel of Love in A Puff will be free of the malaise that plague HK movies recently; being "mainland-ised".

Interesting question. Why do Malaysia import maids from Phillipines, Indonesia, Vietnam and not the other way round?

What are the factors that make Malaysia up there vis a vis its neighbours?

Strange isnt it. Vietnamese are hardworking, Indonesians, Phillipines too.

The main reason of course is economics. That Malaysian economics can afford to pay for maids. And Malays economy is blessed with oil, oil palm, tin, rubber.

But then so do the other countries. So it must be higher income shared among smaller populations.

As long as Phillipinos keep producing babies every time they fuck, as encourage by Catholic Christianity, the Filipinos going to struggle to share their wealth.

More people means more sharing as in Indonesia.

The main obvious reason is the stable parliamentary monarchy that govern Malaysia.

And the pragmatic Malay leaders with world class grasp of ruling.

And of course what are leaders without quality followers.

Peace, ZOPFAN, recognition of China, boycott of SA etc.. shows that Malays have no qualm in the quest for justice.

No other country give citizenships to Kelings and Chinese like what Malaya did.
Only the Malays gave citizanship after ww2.

Set aside an island so that the most vociferous chinese can be PM without disturbing the rest. Or the misfits like zewts can hew and haw, whining about life pretending they deserve better.

The Malays philosophy of finding solutions is unbeatable. That is why Malaysia is the safest countries in the world and its corruption index even better than Singapore.

Malaysia is also the third corruption-free country among the 19 upper-middle income countries even above Singapore!! hehehe

What do you expect. If the wife of the PM is to head Khazanah can u imagine the protest!
