Jak is a friendly, smart hard working guy who seems so relaxed and yet is always doing stuff. He went to primary school with Community Channel, but when he told her this she ran away. Which I think is cold, but Jak is a lovely person.

Vietlish - The Multicultural Generation - is what Vietnamesey clowns Joseph Hieu Dinh and Maria Tran were bombarding festival goers. So are you here? Please email us at if you are part of this clip!

With all the festivity of Spring in Sydney, team Vietlish Joseph Hieu Dinh (JH) and Maria Emtee Tran (MT) have been invited to take part of one of the biggest festivals in Western Sydney: 2009 Cabramatta Moon Festival.

This is when they will launch internationally their most recent episode: The Folklore of Mr. Cuoi & Ms. Hang Nga. Cabramatta was used as backdrop to the modernised version of this ancient folklore.
Check out: Behind the Scenes photos

Joseph Dinh is Cuoi, a poor farmer husband who had his cries of help answered by an Asian fairy god-mother, who grants him a magical tree that has magical powers to heal and cure, thereby creating wealth.
Excited, he rushes home to his wife Hang-Nga (played by Maria Tran) and soon they were living the high life Kings and Queens with their entourage Cabra Men-In-Black.
Of course, good things dont last forever, and pretty soon they lose the tree because silly Hang-Nga dropped it into the toilet (originally the tree cannot stand dirty water). It began to uproot itself and travels to the sky. In an attempt to hold it back, Cuoi is pulled up with it all the way to the moon.
Joseph said: Moon Festival is going to be a big day for us, as were going to be roaming around, doing live vox-pop interviews, and coordinating competitions. Im very excited because Im also going to be MC host of entertainment based at the Channel 9 stage.

Maria said: We encourage everyone to be on a look-out for us, as there will be plenty of surprises from our crew.
Their whereabouts will be updated hourly on their official website. Vietlish is also supporting the screening of Rumble Pictures Maximum Choppage: Round II which will be screened outdoors for the first time.
Event: 2009 Cabramatta Moon Festival
Time: From 8am-10pm
Date: Sunday 27 September 2009
Location: John Street, Cabramatta

Finally, My home-made edits of the Quest for Jackie Chan Trailer is available for public view.

It has screened at Kinos #36 Film event in Sydney and also at the 2010 Colourfest Film Festival this year. I've had great responses and excitement from people who are Jackie Chan Fans across Australia who also want to know what's in store in August this year.

Here's the story:
Being Asian and living in Australia can be hard if you have dreams of becoming something beyond an doctor, lawyer, solicitor (no that there is anything wrong with that).

I want to break beyond the stereotypes and take a risk, a chance and go on an adventure of a lifetime. To do things I've never dreamt of doing (meeting Jackie Chan).

So from 1-21 August my ultimate goal is to travel non-stop across the major cities of Australia (Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart & Melbourne) delivering free workshops on for young people from culturally diverse backgrounds on how to run their creative projects and transform ideas into realities as well meeting up, collecting Jackie Chan mail and recording video messages to Jackie Chan.

I've decided to leave work and delve in my little piggy bank to get this baby project going.

First stop is Canberra and that will be a roadtrip with 6 young persons from Western Sydney who have martial arts background and together we will be choreographing a comedic fight sequence in dedication to Jackie Chan.

Hopefully, once I finish my trip around Australia, I will be home for a month and edit the video footage in the lead up to mid November, where I will take a risk and fly over to Kong Kong in the hope of personally giving him these messages on behalf of AUSTRALIA.

Ambitious? Yes. Nerve wrecking? Totally. I'm not related to Jackie Chan and he doesn't know who I am (I might look like some crazy Asian from downunder - I hope not) and Jackie Chan is super busy. So that is the dilemma. How does a nobody like me meet Jackie Chan?

Only time will tell.

Please join me on my "Quest".
