When I was still a young kid, I watched Jack Neo and gang on comedic show "Gao Xiao Xing Dong" pretty fervently, and I was sad for days when they announced that the show would end. I thought then that Singapore had lost a great comedian talent.

It wasn't soon before long that I realised that my fears were unfounded - his comedic touch came back in the form of his movies. I laughed - and cried - with many of these movies. His satirical take on Singaporean issues resonate with me, and the emotional drama is painful and real - both which he handles well.

In the past, he was known as the 'comedian-turned-director', where his celebrity status fuels people's interest in the movies; but now, he is the 'director who was once a comedian', where his name is now like a guarantee to a good movie, with his comedian past almost nearly forgotten. And that is how it should be; a true recognition of his directional talent.
