TVB Wayne Lai & Nancy Wu Autograph Session @ Sydney

Dear Chibi,

Wayne Lai and Nancy Wu @ Sydney 2011

It’s that time of the year again when TVB sends a few of their artists to Sydney to attend the Jade World Carnival and autograph session. This year, Wayne Lai Yiu-cheung and Nancy Wu Ding Yan were chosen and I was pretty excited about that. I really admire Wayne Lai as an actor especially his roles as “Chai Gau” and “Lau Sing” from the Rosy Business franchise. I’m kinda neutral towards Nancy, not a big fan or anything but I don’t mind her. Like the previous 2 years, Jacky, Kaz and I decided to check out the autograph session to meet these celebrities in real life. Sadly, on Friday I came down with the cold and spent the last few days trying to recover. I didn’t recover in time for the event so I wasn’t feeling my best.

The autograph session was held at 2.30pm at Sydney Sussex Center and we arrived about 2 hours earlier. Like the previous years there wasn’t much of a crowd earlier on, so we waited patiently and assumed this was the norm. It turns out the location has changed from the previous years and is no longer held at the main entrance! Only at 2.30pm did we realise it was actually hosted in the food court up on the third level… Yes, you heard right.. FOOD COURT. WTH?

By the time we arrived, the place was already jammed packed with people :( I had to use my super-chibi-ninja skills to find myself a good spot. There was also a queue for the autographs which only allowed VIPs with a sticker to get one. I didn’t have a clue about the stickers. What stickers? Before I could even comprehend the possibility of wasting 2 hours for nothing, Wayne and Nancy had arrived. The crowd went nuts and it looked kinda chaotic. There were lots of old grannies there too which I thought was..kinda cute but weird ^^;

The two talked a little about their upcoming dramas and roles as husband and wife in Forensic Heroes 3. I was busy trying to get good shots of them while the security guys kept getting in my way.

Are you enjoying these pics? :)

Eventually the signing event occurred and god knows why but I got my autographs :) ¬†Wayne and Nancy both appeared really friendly and I took the opportunity to tell “Chai Gau” I loved watching his characters :) ¬†Kaz was still in the crowd so she managed to help me snap a picture with Nancy.

Although I did end up seeing both of them, grabbing a photo with Nancy AND got their autographs, somehow it just didn’t feel that great compared to previous years. I felt bad for Jacky and Kaz for missing out, especially Jacky who couldn’t even get to see them from afar :[ This year’s organisation was horrible. It was also over too quickly in under 30 minutes. Hopefully next year’s will have less disappointments. It could have been a lot better for everyone.

    Wayne Lai and Nancy Ding Yan? Mannnnnn o(>_<)o!!!!! I love their work in… yeah okay I'll stop pretending (^-^;).

    So it happened in the food court? I wonder what happened to the people eating? They were probably in the middle of eating and then got kicked out. Also, the food stands people would be pissed, too.
