My Maiden Show In China: SuZhou WuJiang

Over the years, i have been to various parts of China, either doing period dramas or travelogues or variety shows..never once did i actually took up the role of hosting in China’s production and this time, it happened.Not only did it happened..but..in a mega way too.

This is the Opening ceremony of the 2009 China WuJiang Investment and trade fair and Century NanShe, World Wujiang, a joint performance of the Asian Media comprising of China,Hong Kong,Taiwan,Korea and Singapore. Performing artistes includes Zhang Haozhe..Zhang Weijian..Fann Wong..etc.. For me,It was a night to remember, as the sheer walking of at least 30 metres across the stage just to deliver my lines is simply mind blowing! Also, the weather there was fantabulous..22 degrees during the day and about 17 in the evening:)

And here are the hosts of the evening:) Myself,Min from Korea, 文静 from Suzhou Television station,李大华 from Taiwan and 沈星from China Hong Kong:)

This time of the year spells the emergence of the hairy crab, a reknown delicacy to be found in this part of China and to give us the best of the best, we were brought to the Yangcheng lake’s 扬成湖LianHua isle 莲花岛, where the A grade hairy crabs are harvested!

To get to this isle, from mainland, you take this little boat taxi and speeds off across the tranquil lake at an alarming but joyful speed:)

Interestingly, there we found that you don’t catch the crab from the lake, instead, the climbed onto the nets themselves willingly, just to be feasted on by us humans:) Not that they know that this is their fate, but, twice a year, the crabs comes onto the land to hibernate..that explains why they leave the comfort of the water..and that’s why the nets are casted in such a way whereby once they surface, the harvesters simply row their boats out and pluck them from the nets.As simple as that:)

And yes..it is definitely yummy:)

This has been a real memorable trip…

though now a distant memory , i will always hold it dear to my heart:)

    星期二特写之《家传菜7》 Episode 1
    11月3日,晚上10点30分

    新传媒艺人王禄江以幽默和急智的主持风格见称。但是在他活泼、开朗的外表底下,隐藏了他深深思念父亲的感性一面。第七系列第一集的《家传菜》将带领观众走入王禄江的厨房,看他如何烹煮出两道父亲生前最爱的菜肴 — 梅子排骨和福建炒黑面。自从王茀发在13年前过世后,这两道菜便在王家享有崇高地位。多年以来,禄江都坚持在农历新年为家人烹煮这两道菜,并在制作过程中逐渐领悟出父亲的教诲,体会他那独特而又含蓄的爱。

    编导:洪家璇

    A brand new season of the popular series, “Heirloom Recipe”, returns as MediaCorp artiste Bryan Wong invites us into his kitchen in this debut episode.
    Bryan Wong is known for his humor and wit as a variety show host. But beneath the bubbly personality lies a sentimental side that surfaces whenever he remembers his late father.
    Today, Bryan whips up two of his father’s favourite dishes – ribs with plum sauce and dark sauce fried noodles. Since his father’s passing 13 years ago, these have become iconic dishes in the Wong family and Bryan always cooks them for his family every Lunar New Year. In the course of preparing the dishes, he came to appreciate his father’s teachings as well the profound love that his father had for him.

    Producer: Ang Ka Swan

    Hi Bryan

    Just finished watching “Heirloom Receipe”, really touching n fully understand how much you miss yr late father. My father passed away 21 yrs ago and also such a sudden as in my memories, I never see him got sick before. I really felt I lost my pillar of support at that time, like lost of direction………

    I ve missed yr “Food Hometown 2″, but I think this “Heirloom Receipe” should be as good as Food Hometown 2, may be better as can see yr mother n sister . I recorded this programme…..

    Still would like to watch yr “Food Hometown 2″, Bryan or anyone can tell me how ?

    Wish u all the best n take good care of yr mother n sister, they need you. While for me, I have been away from my mother (in Penang) since 9 yrs ago. So miss her now…..
