副总裁的道歉 v 1027 936(15-11)

  昨天新明记者访问了我大概8个小时后,副总裁陈国明才来电给我。
8 hours after a reporter from Shin Min Daily interviewed me, VP Paul Chan gave me a call.

一些关心这事情的朋友说看了报章后觉得,文章上的发言只是他把话说清楚和对梁家班和歌台艺人 的立场“重新定位”,很像道歉又不是道歉,不是道歉又很像在道歉。 (very the chim)
Some concerned friends said that after reading the article in the newspaper, which reported that he only re-phrased the comparisons between J Team artistes and getai artistes. And it seems like he apologized, but maybe not. But although he didn't apologize, it felt like he did. (very the chim)

我的朋友都相当细腻,觉得这些朋友很可爱,不过我告诉他们,得饶人处且饶人,在一个大机构里,要一个人站出来公开用明显的字眼道歉(sorry、 对不起、 请包涵 、请原谅、 这是我的错、 毫无保留的道歉)是比较困难的(好像许文远部长那样公开道歉几件事是需要很大勇气的,佩服他!),现在你们明白为什么在我的电影“我在政府部门的日子里”有一段林益民对身为公务员"坚持不道歉"的看法吗?
My friends are all quite classic, and I find them all very cute. But I told them, forgive and forget. In a big organization, for someone to step forward and literally apologize (using the words sorry, pls forgive me, it's my fault etc) would be very difficult (like how minister Khaw Boon Wan publicly apologized for a few incidents, and that really took a lot of courage, which really earned my respect!). So now you know why my movie, "Just Follow Law" has a scene in which Moses Lim, as a civil servant, "insist on not apologizing"?

在政府机构里,用行动来道歉好过用语言来道歉,只要明白人家的方式就可以了。
In a civil service organization, apologizing by means of actions is better than apologizing by words. As long as you understand the way they do it and that's sufficient.

这事已告一个段落,生活还是要继续,jteam仍然会继续发掘各式各样才貌双全的才华型实力派艺人,绝对不会放弃。
This matter has been concluded and life still has to go on. J Team will still continue to scout for beautiful and witty talents. We won't give up.

借这关机会,我也要提醒梁家班全体艺人和之前刚毕业的非常演员同学,不要忘记了努力充实自己,聪明的充实自己,等待一个机会的到来是很重要的。
Taking this opportunity, I'd like to remind all J Team artistes as well as the students from the just graduated artistes training class. Remember to replenish you knowledge and substantiate your potential. Do it smartly. For it's very important when the opportunity comes by.

很好的机会有时只来一次,有没有能力把握住全靠平时自己花时间做功课一点一滴的累积而来,书到用时方恨少,肯定是已经走宝了。
Good opportunities may sometimes only come knocking once. Whether you can manage to grab that opportunity will depend on how much time and effort you put into your homework everyday. As the saying goes, Knowledge will never be sufficient when you need them, and you would have lost the opportunity when it runs by.

也谢谢新传媒其他高层对这事情给于我和梁家班的支持和谅解,我相信下来一定还有很多精彩的合作等待发生。
Also, thks to Mediacorp's other senior managers for their understanding in this incident and their support towards J Team and me. I believe there would be much more splendid collaboration coming up.

也谢谢这么多网友对这件事的支持和评语。谢谢你!
Also, I'd like to thk you all for your support and comments, THKS!

虽然晚报曾经刊登了我们7个宝贝的照片,其实我们后来也拍了很多美丽的照片,和大家一起分享。
These pictures are 'fresh from oven', showing you our 7 babes!

Tiffany 谢美婷

适合好人坏人鸟人的角色,擅长冷面搞笑(在just follow law里面饰演跟law走的公务员),她还有魔鬼的身材身藏不露

Can play roles of a good person, a bad person, and the rotten person. Good at comedy (Acted as the law-abiding civil servant in Just Follow Law). She's also got a fantastic figure.

Chuxuan 陈楚璇
适合演各类少女的角色,演技自然,挥洒自如,她的哭功更是一流,样子甜
美,很有日本女明星的气质。

Natalli 爱雯

样子可纯可奸可好可坏,唱歌跳舞非常优秀,身材高度很好,现在17岁,最近到上海出席小孩不笨的首映和记者会,中方记者都非常惊讶她的气质,至少她的出现没让当地记者失望。

Recently, she was in Shanghai for the press conference of I NOT STUPID 2. The Chinese reporters were very surprised by her disposition. At least her appearance did not disappoint those reporters.

Cheryl 陈雪儿
适合演绎各类少女的角色,在小孩不笨1演出娇身惯养的少女非常称职。现在长大了,亭亭玉立的气质很有吸引人的魅力,同时也是我们队伍里的歌舞唱将

hello director neo, i'm sunsun. very nice blog u have here. thks for sharing yr life as a director with us. didn't know the entertainment and movie industry is so colourful... and also, very good to see u blog in both english and mandarin. benefits ppl like me, ABC one, live in singapore, but can barely read chinese. hehe.

anyway, those 7 babes, they are pretty, but, somehow, i feel not enough substance. nohing to do with young or not. but just feel that i'm only looking at a plain pretty face.

DEAR 梁導演~晚安!抱歉 最近這幾天超忙 因為週六客人來 很多開發報價的 忙的不可開交 終於今天把東西丟出去給工廠 就等他們報價...感覺讓我想到[我在政府部門的日子]當中一隻隻紅箭把東西丟出去一樣 哈!但一想到這週五又有一個 有點小頭痛 希望不要又被丟一堆 真不知道我到年底還有三個年假要何時才可以放...剛有看到一篇報導說到已經有跟您道歉了...希望你的心情緩和一些摟... 但是我說真的 她們真的都感覺好小...童星的發展空間還很大 但是當然選擇性也會有所受限....說真的 有幾個比較順眼 其他...可能沒有印象 以及 沒有太大的第一眼順眼度吧! 用你一句小孩不笨2的話...HOWEVER....等長大或許會更加有好的實力與形象 更能讓更多人看得起! :)12月期待能看到你的電影!

Oh... so only good comments will be published, and bad comments will be "removed by the blog administrator"...

But frankly speaking, their image/styling really very "sala", very ah lian... why can't you accept the fact?

cheryl sim said...

梁导演, how are you? i have been watching yr comedy since young. it's good to see that u r training young talents. hope that they can grow into big stars soon.

but i have a personal opinion. megan looks very sweet and shld have potential. tiffany... maybe she can only play supporting roles. i think cheryl got potential, but natalie, i think just nice to look at only, dun look like the type that can go far. the rest, still young, but i think can train la.

good luck anyway.

regards,
cheryl sim

wah, did he apologise? can have english version soon?

瀅錦 said...

因为电影所以对Tiffany,Cheryl,郑智允比较有印象。Tiffany在 just follow law念对白的那个tone跟嘴脸实在经典,现在仍然还记得。Cherly,给我一种像是channel 5的演员。

我觉得栽培很重要的。一块璞玉若没人理会,多好都没用。看看那些选了出来又跑掉的新星们就知道了。

希望梁导好好栽培这些幼苗,让新加坡有多些出色,多元化的艺人。

说真的,要看美女的话,港台中,现在加上韩流,选择多的是。

各位热爱演艺事业的艺人,加油!

eh uncle neo, i think yr girls ah, lack of something leh. like not attractive enough. they not ugly lah, but just dun hv the "feel" type leh.

Anonymous said...

这些女艺人都是新人,还没有开始嘛,郑惠玉还没有成名之前也是一个阿莲样。都是一样的。

莫小玲也是经过梁家班的调教才可以出味。

Ansel Chang said...

Hi MR Neo i'm an Ite student in Ang Mo Kio i been to ur talk and preview of your upcoming Ah Long film dun know if u still remember me? But i just hope u can share with me more of filming a movie. Thanks

cheryl sim said...

anonymous on 15 nov 10:28pm, it's true must take time to nuture. but when zoe tay won star search, she already got star quality. patricia mok, i dun deny she's good, but until now she hasn't made much progress in terms of becoming a big star.

i'm not looking down on yr 7 babes, but i think u shld have a wider scope of talents, not just the very young.

after all, u are going to make many many movies, and like u said, for the china market. u can't just depend on 'i not stupid' type of shows featuring only kids. u might want to have more variety of movies, and have more fresh faces to groom.

i think then u can succeed in being a movie mogul with the best and most talents under yr wing.

to be honest, i was a bit disapointed when u only featured those 7 young girls. i was really hoping to see more different types of actors/actresses. i heard even yr artiste training sessions also had only young artistes. then i suppose lao zha bor must be really honoured to be able to be part of the too young j-team...

> 好像许文远部长那样公开道歉几件事是需要很大勇气的,佩服他!

如果是我呀,有个每年几百万元的薪金必须保住,要我开口道一百个歉,我都没问题!即便觉得受委屈,拿那个六位数的恩奉金来填补因道歉而流血的心灵,也都绰绰有余了!更何况,本来就的确是我的错,道歉有何难?政治家本来就是最好的演员!

当然,那是指“如果是我”啦。怎可和尊贵的许部长相提并论?呵呵!

有些在服务业前线干活的小市民如小贩,酒店清洁工人等等,明明没有犯错,却必须为五斗米折腰,违背事实,向盛气凌人的不讲理顾客毕恭毕敬地道歉。且之后无法以他们的微薄薪水来填补受伤的心灵,他们呀,为家中老幼而忍气吞声,不意气用事,才真令我佩服呢!

不过呀,这些小市民,没钱又没势,我根本无须去巴结他们。所以,尽管私底下佩服,本人是绝不会在我那捧卵脬的网站上佩服他们的。要佩服,也会保留给尊贵的部长们!哈哈!


〉like how minister Khaw Boon Wan publicly apologized for a few incidents, and that really took a lot of courage, which really earned my respect!

If it were me, and I have a $X,000,000 job at stake, even if I were asked to apologise 100 times, I won't have any problem with that! Moreover, if I were to feel humiliated by having to apologise, my six-figure pension is more than enough to plaster up my bruised ego! Most importantly, it was indeed my fault, so why would I have a problem apologising? Politicians are the best actors to begin with!

But of course, that's "if it were me". It of course does not apply to our highly respectable ministers. LOL!

Sometimes, I see those ordinary citizens working in the frontline of our service industries, people such as hawkers and hotels' chamber maids, who did nothing wrong, but were forced to apologise very respectfully and unreservedly to unreasonable customers, in order to save their rice bowl. And thereafter, they can't use their meagre salaries to plaster their hurt ego! These people, who controlled themselves not to act rashly, for the sake of putting food on the table for their old parents and young children, they really earned my respect!

But then, these ordinary folks got no money and no power, I do not need to curry their favours. So, despite my private admiration for them, you will never find my showing them any respect on my boot licking and apple polishing blog. On my blog, I reserve my respect for our very respectable ministers!
