New Year’s in the States

IMAG0721
Hello Again and thanks for stopping by!  I must apologize for being rather flakey as of late in updating my entries at this website.  The last few weeks have been extremely busy, but I do hope to make things right again in terms of sharing more information here starting with the end of 2012 where I took my two babies back to California to spend Christmas and New Year’s.  As you can see from the picture above, I even had a chance to pretend to be a real bonafide firefighter in LA for a day while my little brother Danny Wu takes on these duties full time as the real deal.  During the course of the day, Uncle Danny let the kids try their hand at a few things including trying to work the water hose…

I am not sure if I should be posting this but the kids also has their “driving lesson” in a golf cart on the enclosed private premises…

This year for New Year’s was particularly exciting because we had the opportunity to celebrate the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 in Las Vegas.  It was the children’s first time to Vega$ and actually my first time spending New Year’s there.  Of course, the little ones were more concerned going here to play carnival games and win stuff animals…

…but I still took the kids onto the main strip to experience a bonafide Las Vegas New Year’s celebration just in time for the countdown and fireworks display!

During the course of our time in the States, I think I finally got the kids hooked on the always “cornerstone of a nutritious diet of hamburgers, hot dogs, and milk shakes” so that just means it more reason to keep them (and myself) active and exercising for 2013…

Agh…nothing like the great outdoors (and the perfect weather in Sunny SoCal!) so I even took the kids out fishing for a day down in Irvine…

…needless to say, we all had an amazing time back in California so now it’s time to give one final “Thumb’s Up” before I start getting back into Work Mode!

Hope your New Year is staring off well and see you very soon!

Bike away at Shengsi Island!

During this past week, I had the absolute pleasure of discovering a hidden getaway not too far from Shanghai called Shengsi Island.  Not only were there virtually no crowds (which was highly unusual due to the fact that we were traveling during the Mid Autumn Festival and weeklong October holiday period), but the roads were specifically catered for some stunning bicycle rides…

Each day, we were treated to the rolling terrain and open roads of Shengsi Island with its beautiful untouched scenery…

We all had a great time riding around the island and enjoying the fresh seaside air…

…and interacting with the locals.

The kids even found a water-slide on the island on a newly developed resort…

At this time, I’d like to give a big shout out and Thank You! to Bill Gaylord, Jane, and Alice for organizing this wonderful trip for all of us!

I know we’d never find this hidden paradise that’s so close to Shanghai on our own, and I’m looking forward to riding with you all again sometime soon!  It’s all about SISU, Baby!  If you’d like to learn more about their upcoming adventures, then please go to their official website at:

I Need a Vacation…

Oh…it’s been one nonstop whirlwind of a month for me, but in the overall scheme of things, I believe it’s actually a good thing.  In the topsy turvy world of entertainment, you never know when your next job might drop onto your doorstep so if it does happen to rain, you put yourself in the right mindset to appreciate the pleasant storm so let’s keep running!

Here’s a quick recap of my latest haps before I share with you my latest and favorite tourist destination in China.  Starting back in August, I had the opportunity to be invited to make a celebrity appearance in Shanghai for Starwood Hotels to introduce the new Chinese version of their Starwood Preferred Guests (SPG) iPhone application.  After that, it was time to mix it up with newly-traded superstar center for the Los Angeles Lakers, Dwight Howard, as he made his “King of the Paint” China tour before the training camp…

Once those few fun-filled days of hosting were done, it was time to fly down to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to meet the fast cars and scantily-clad women for another adrenaline-pumping weekend of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia!

After another exciting weekend of motorsport racing was wrapped up, I stayed in KL for a few more days to help announce the return of the AXA Affin AXN Big Challenge to all Malaysians looking to challenge themselves with some Big Time fun!

As soon as this event was completed, it was time to rush up to Beijing to act as one of the judges for Men’s Health magazine’s “Cool Guy” competition before going to Hong Kong speak to over 4,000 guests at the Hong Kong Convention Center for skincare company Jeunesse’s annual global convention.  Once those few intense days of talking nonstop in English and Mandarin were completed, it was soon time to return once again to Singapore for the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia and Formula One Grand Prix.

During this time in Singapore, I had the opportunity to meet with the local press and do a few cover photo shoots including this one for Lifestyle magazine at the newly opened W Hotel Sentosa Cove…

We were blessed with some fantastic weather and the view from the hotel was stunning even as a reflection…

Once we shifted operations to the poolside, I knew it was time to multitask and work on my tan too!

I recall on this day I took on the task of doing many separate interviews and photo shoots including TNP The New Paper (which just came out last weekend and I’ve posted on this website below), I-Weekly, and U-Weekly publications, which meant a seemingly interminable day of talking and posing…

….needless to say that I was quite exhausted by the end of the day.  However, I never have too much of a problem talking or talking about myself so I’m ready to do it all again soon!  And somehow during this manic work schedule, I still managed to make a day trip back to walk the red carpet and attend E! News Channel’s big bash in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, again!

Now during this entire time, I happened to miss about ten different birthdays for family and friends including Li Lin’s and my daughter Sage’s.  Fortunately, everyone was more than understanding of the nature of my work so it was nice to receive the pictures of happy smiles and good times at one of the many birthday celebrations I missed…

And on that note, I think I’m going to catch my breath and take a break.  I was planning on sharing with you what I did for a much-needed break after this crazy period over the weeklong October National Day holiday celebration in China, but I think I’ll save that one for my next entry.  Hope you enjoyed reading this relatively quick recap of the recent happs for me and catch up with you again soon!

Back to Reality and a Shanghai Reunion

The last few months have been pretty hectic so it’s nice to finally have some time to myself back home in Shanghai to decompress and get some bills paid!  But first, it’s time to hit up that chocolate fountain once again to put some meat back on me!

After wrapping up filming for The Amazing Race China Rush and returning from a bit of media stuff in Singapore…

I immediately made a trip out to Hangzhou, China, to make an appearance at Lancome’s media event being held at the Four Seasons Hotel…

Lancome had organized an Amazing Race of their own for their invited guests, and I had the privilege of hosting it for them that day.  This was my first time to Hangzhou, and I can that I will definitely need to find some time to go back because this seems to be one truly relaxing place, especially when you compare it to Shanghai.  Even my room opens up into a personal sanctuary of sorts…

The hotel pool was definitely calling my name too…

Unfortunately, the day was packed with the race, and then it would time for everyone to get all gussied up for Lancome’s “Rouge in Love” party at night.  I arrived a bit early so I could take a look at the setup before things got even more pink and red…

Don’t forget to throw in some young, pretty models to liven up the party…

The funny thing is…when I see these models, I still recall my early days as a model doing this type of work at these events.  And as easy as it was, I am SOOO happy that I’ve moved on from doing it anymore…or maybe I’m just in self-denial that no one would ever hire me to stand or “float” around throughout the evening’s festivities.

Thanks again to Jerome from Lancome for taking care of me during my time in Hangzhou, and I had a great time hosting your kick ass event!

And of course, I also happened to have my parents and younger brother Danny in town visiting along with my old CAL college buddy Amnon so that definitely kept us all busy, busy, busy!

The last few weeks have certainly whizzed by with places to see and food to eat for everyone.  I have definitely had more than my fill of Chinese cuisine so you know I’ll be veering away from this food for a while at least.  All in all, it was great fun and pure joy to be reunited with the family in this part of world until we plan our next trip back to Cali!  I know Sage and Jonas will definitely be missing their Uncle Danny too!

After racing, it’s time for a Grand Mercure Roxy return to Singapore!

A just like that, another season of The Amazing Race China Rush is all wrapped up.  Of course, it’s not always fun and games when it comes to filming one of these seasons, but we definitely made the most of it as we always do.  Here’s a few pictures to share with you before I unleash the mother load after we inch closer towards the premiere date…

Of course, this first pic is for all of our Spartacus fans out there…and you know who you are!

As you can see, there’s never a dull moment for me during the course of the race.  In the picture above, I even get to explain what the contestants will be performing next with a few birds perched on my arms.

Now, with the race all completed, what is a tired, undernourished, and homesick host supposed to do?  I immediately buy the first ticket out to Singapore to catch up with my family.  Unfortunately, I decided to try out Cathay Pacific this time, and I cannot emphasize how disappointed I am with this airline.  First, I never received any confirmation for my internet booking after the Cathay Pacific website took my credit card information, charged it, and ran.  Both my wife and I tried incessantly to get a hold of someone from the airline to confirm the booking, but we never got a hold of anyone in China, Hong Kong, and Singapore.  Why does Cathay Pacific even give a customer service number when no one even attempts to answer your call throughout all hours of the day?  To top it off, my family’s flight to Singapore was delayed for a few hours, but that’s something I’ve come to accept flying in and out of China.  However, the lack of customer service on the part of the airline is completely unacceptable.  Cathay Pacific, your airline’s customer service totally stinks!

Now that I got that out of the way, it’s time to do a 180 degree turn and pile on the praise for our wonderful hotel accommodations in Singapore at the Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel.  Located at 50 East Coast Road next to Parkway Parade, we had the privilege of being invited to experience their top notch hotel during our time back in Singapore.  Unfortunately, we didn’t get to spend as much as time as I would have liked in the actual hotel due to work and media engagements, but we definitely tried to make the moments count when we were there.  To top it all off, the food from the various restaurants were simply delicious, and I would go back just to eat the food in the future.  The gym is opened 24 hours, which was a huge plus because I definitely needed to squeeze in a quick “pump up” work out before my iFitness magazine topless cover shoot, and the swimming pool looked so very inviting throughout our time there.  I managed to snap off a few shots of our room, but please forgive the messy state because we were all in a mad rush at 545 AM that morning to catch our dreaded flight on Cathay Pacific back to Shanghai…

While Li Lin was busy tidying up our belongings in the photo above, Sage was a happy camper taking one last look at the kids’ room before we had to check out…

Once again, a big shout out and Thank You! to Jennifer, Tika, and Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel for going above and beyond on every front to take care of us during our most enjoyable return to Singapore!

I might have to call upon you once again because I just didn’t have enough time this trip to experience all of your amenities!

Now that it’s “Back to Reality” after completing my reality show, it’s time to take a look at some new scripts and prepare for my next job coming up in Hangzhou for Lancome as they prepare to kick off their own version of The Amazing Race!  Should be a lot of fun ahead  and have a great week yourself!

A Sunny Hello

Finally!  The sun has emerged for the seemingly endless weeks of cold, grey, wet weather.  Along the way, I inadvertently lost my bearings in terms of blogging and am now working towards heading in the right direction towards updating it.  After spending about a decade in sunny tropical Singapore, I’ve been conditioned and taken for granted the warm (and often to stifling) heat of the sun’s rays, but I think now everyone in Shanghai welcomes its long awaited return to the city skyline.  To start, the favorable turn of weather has made watching my son Jonas slowly learn the finer aspects of soccer (or football in all other parts of the world minus the United States) much more palatable despite the still chilly temperatures…

Not only has the weather taken a turn for the better, but the good sun has even turned up the work load here in China for me a few notches, which is always an “Amazing” thing!  Several weeks back, I began work on a commercial for Audi’s new A6L at the Shenzen International Airport…

Our plan was to continue the shoot in Shanghai.  However, the plans have been postponed a few weeks until now due to unfavorable gloomy gray weather.  Now, I hope we can switch back into high gear so we can get this shoot completed and wrapped up.

Last Thursday night, I finally attended my first fashion show here in Shanghai for Mango at the Shanghai Exhibition Center…

I recall a time quite long ago when I used to wonder what I was even doing on a runway myself.  Now, I definitely find it more enjoyable to just sit back and allow the new generation of models do the “heavy lifting” (or lack thereof) on the runways…

From here, things really begin to go “Varooooooom!!!” as I get set to work on the exciting new season of the Porsche Carerra Asia Cup 2012.  We’ll be kicking off our first event in a few weeks at Zhuhai, and here’s a taste test of what’s to come:

http://u.youku.com/user_show/id_UMzM3MDA2OTk2.html

And since we’re on the topic of racing, let’s not forget that the latest and greatest season of The Amazing Race China Rush will soon be up and racing all around China once again…and more on that to come!!!

In the meantime, thanks for dropping in and I’ll be sure to keep the pedal on the metal for you as you have a great week ahead!продвижение сайта
