Remembering Bruce Lee

Yikes! Bruce Lee would have been 65 years! He is terribly old! So am I.

I remember doing a homemade nunchaku from sugar canes when I was a kid. Yeah, I was a tomboy back then. I also remembered punching banana tree trunks in place of sandbags. *sigh* I did have a great childhood, didn’t I? Anybody wanna try out if my punches still break trunks?

Whenever any Bruce Lee shows came to my little kampung in Bayan Lepas, the whole village would go and watch. Back then, we would stand up, cheer and clap.

I did not remember much about Bruce Lee shows except the few scenes:

1) He dug the grave of his master in a heavy rain;

2) His heng-tais ditched him and left rotten rice for him

3) The ‘white powder/drug’ hidden in ice blocks

But I do remember the charistmatic Sek-Kin. Fuwah, with the bushy eyebrows and Shanghai clothes, he is (is he dead yet?) one helluva bad guy. Oh ya, no to mention that short, fat guy who played the traitor.

Now, if anyone dare torture me to watch re-runs of Bruce Lee shows with his signature ‘eeyore, eeyore, growling’, I will probably make a punching bag out of him. (hehehehe, hope atm hear this)

This news from BBC UK opened the flood gates of old cinemas and its 40 cents movie ticket (which comes free with bed bugs).

Kung-fu film star Bruce Lee is to be remembered in Hong Kong with a statue to mark his 65th birthday.

The bronze statue, to be unveiled in November, will honour Lee as “Chinese film’s bright star of the century”.

How much do you remember about Bruce Lee?
