Nancy Wu & Wayne Lai @ Autograph Session Sydney

 

Hey all! The once a year Sydney TVB Jadeworld Carnival has come and gone. This year we had Nancy Wu and Wayne Lai come and I was quite excited when I first heard about it, given they’re from the awesome No Regrets series and will be playing a married couple in the upcoming grand production “Forensic Heroes 3” later this year. Much anticipated ๐Ÿ™‚

It has been about 2 years since I went to one of those Jadecarnivals as I have always been busy with studies/exams during that time. This year I planned to go see them but unfortuntely was down with the cold ๐Ÿ™ I stayed in bed for the day hoping to recover or be in a better state to see them at the autograph session instead (which was today). I did watch some youtube clips that someone has kindly uploaded to share and saw the 2 singing ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyone go to see them ? Any experiences to share? It looked like pretty nice day outside.

This morning I woke up not feeling so great, but thought I’d go see them anyway(last chance!) XD When I got to Sussex Centre around 2pm, I didn’t see much of a crowd so I got a bit confused on why nothing was set up given start time was approaching. I then later realised half an hour later they were having it at the Food court upstairs- wtf??? That is one weird place to have an autograph session. People are trying to eat there… =.= There was a huge crowd this year with quite a lot of old grannies and gramps lol I’m guessing they were there mainly for Wayne??

Anyways, I managed to find myself a nice spot right at the front to take some photos and video recording of them ๐Ÿ™‚ I would have had some better videos/photos if the security guards didn’t keep standing in my way. Wayne and Nancy look exactly like on TV lol Extra friendly of course, Wayne and Nancy kept smiling and waving at me ^^ Nancy talked a bit about the Boxing series, while Wayne mentioned Forensic Heroes 3 (releasing in October as this year’s grand production), filming new series with Kent, and “The Great Eunuch”. The session went pretty quick (half an hour in total) and they soon left. Chibi managed to get autographs (I’m so jealous XD)

I’ve compiled the clips together and uploaded on youtube:

    • KTVB says:

      I shall try record some clips too! I wonder what they’ll be singing..NR themesong and…? XD Hmm don’t think Nancy’s sung any themesongs before

      • Madeline says:

        pretty sure wayne will sing red butterfly, the themesong from rosy business and the themesong from no regrets was sung by leo ku so i don’t really think wayne will sing that though lol

        and yeah, haven’t seen Nancy sing before so probably she’ll be signing autographs and stuff like that

  • Rin says:

    Woot! Wayne! ๐Ÿ™‚ & I really like Nancy too but her role in No Regrets was bleh haha.

          Did u spot them? I’m quite sure nancys fan club posted it right.. :s unless they changed their flight?????

        • This was not the item in the picture. The picture is of the programmable version of this coffeemaker, what was received was the model in the written description. This is NOT the programmable model. Still, it makes decent coffee and it was cheap, which is what I was really looking for.

  • Chemicalxyz says:

    Autograph session starts at 2:30 but I ain’t sure if if have to buy anything from the center or comming early. I wonder what time do people usually go

  • Maikub says:

    Would the session be in market city or somewhere else? Saw someone on facebook saying would prob need to be 2 hrs early

  • Chemicalxyz says:

    Isn’t the autograph session at sussex center?

  • maikub says:

    yeah you’re right, friend looked it up

  • suki says:

    I’d like to share my thoughts & experience with you all regard today’s autograph session.

    the autograph session is a bull. i went to SUSSEX CENTRE DELIBERATELY today for the session with the so called 1 in 100 VIP sticker, lining up, happily waiting for my turn to get their autographs. everything was cool; the MCs & nancy/wayne talked for like 10 mins & the autograph session later commenced. BUT, another 10 minutes into the signing session with only about 30 or so people actually getting their signatures, you hear the announcement: “sorry for those who are currently waiting in line as we have RUN OUR OF PHOTOS to sign onto”. next thing you know, “please say goodbye to wayne & nancy for they are now leaving”

    ok, so what happened to the so called 100 autographs limit?! did TVBA STAFF STEAL SOME FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION?? what’s the point of printing out the 100 VIP stickers then?? heaps of VIPs like myself queued up & wasted heaps of time all for nothing! many of us ended up complaining. the TVBA STAFF didn’t apologise. in fact, they suggest we complain to the SUSSEX CENTRE STAFF! although the SUSSEX CENTRE STAFF apologised, it doesn’t make up for our wasted time & money.

    so the total time of the session lasted less than 30 minutes! UNBELIEVABLE!!! I’m NEVER EVER going to another autograph session again

    • KTVB says:

      What the…that sucks!! I know some people missed out, but not 70 right?? I heard that annoucement too and though ‘huh’…?? cos I thought I still saw a stack of Nancy’s photos on the table (although I didn’t see Wayne’s ones left) They left at exactly 3pm, so maybe it was an excuse for them to leave..hmm I don’t know..

      • suki says:

        i know right!!! i was so frustrated! i’m not too annoyed at the fact that i didn’t get the autograph, it’s the principle of TVBA’s method of handling the situation (especially now that you said you saw some leftovers)

        • chemicalXYZ says:

          i definitely saw a TVB staff had like another 40 photos(approx) and he put them in a clear bag and hid the rest in one of those recycling bags.

        • karennn says:

          yeh i wentr yesterday too… gotta admit it was badly organised… felt so sorry about those who were lining up ages before the event started…

          About the Autographs i saw heaps of people holding wayne’s photo but i dont think i saw anyone with Nancy’s and i dont think i saw anyone with two photos… then again what could i see with the women infront of me… she have like cameras in both hands and many heads were in the way… *sigh*

    • smellysocks says:

      Hey how did you get the VIP stickers?? I kept asking around and no one knows…??

      • suki says:

        you had to get them at the jadeworld carnival yesterday. but then again, having the VIP sticker didn’t make much of a difference then not have one

        • smellysocks says:

          ??? but don’t they already have a separate autograph session at the carnival? how do you get the VIP stickers at the carnival?

        • suki says:

          that’s the thing, they didn’t have an autograph session at the carnival. it would have been a much wiser decision to have an autograph session after like last year…
          there was this table where 2 girls were present, handing out these VIP stickers. they were mainly trying to promote sussex centre though

        • maikub says:

          we just turned up at 2pm and my sister lined up. there was a security guy or something with a blue cap and shirt. he had some vip stickers and handed out all he had to people in the queue that didn’t have one already.

  • Chemicalxyz says:

    I think the tvb reduce the autographs on purpose! There were more photos but I saw a staff put them back in a bag! Everyone was kinda pushing and shoving today. I got to say… It was badly organised!

    • suki says:

      i cannot agree more with you

      • Chemicalxyz says:

        I manage to get an autograph though! I was sitting on the front row! But alot of grannies barge in without a sticker and they let them in before me.

        • suki says:

          OMG speechless…IF there’s a next time, you’ll probly see me barging in without a sticker. don’t blame me then if people with suck a VIP sticker don’t get autographs

        • KTVB says:

          Ah so you must have went to the carnival this year to get the sticker~ how was the carnival this yr?

        • suki says:

          i meant ‘such’ lol

        • Chemicalxyz says:

          I think they only let the grannies in cuz they are old. On a side note, I bumped into nancy yesterday night! She was friendly!

    • Miyuki says:

      Oohh! Where did you see her?! ๐Ÿ™‚ lucky!

      • Chemicalxyz says:

        Saw her outside The eight restaurant in market city!

        • Miyuki says:

          As in upstairs of market city?? Were they eating there? XDD Never seen it before.. Hmm…Awesome though! Did you get an autograph from her?

        • ChemicalXYZ says:

          yes upstairs market city! I assume they had dinner there after the event on saturday. i had dinner there too…but during that time, there were about 5-6 tables of tvb staff so i can’t even approach. i Actually saw her when she was leaving the restaurant about 8pm maybe.. she was with 2 ladies (manager perhaps?)i didn’t have time to ask for autograph… but i ask for a quick photo instead. One of the lady was like ” no no, we are in a rush..” but then Nancy was like “oh its ok.. won’t take too long.” So me and my sis jumped in for a quick photo with her. After that she said thanks and then went down the escalators. lol i thanked her again the next day at the autograph session.. but i didn’t know if she remembered me. Actually i saw Wayne that night too… but he was by himself so a little hard to recognize and was down the escalators before i manage to get to him

        • KTVB says:

          How lucky!!! XD XD XD

        • chemicalXYZ says:

          it would have been good if i had a good camera….but at that time, i only had an ipod with a camera function and to make things worse, the lady that took it for us..(nancy’s manager or something) took the picture really quickly and didn’t really cared if the photo turn out well or not.. so yeh.. the quality was really crap

  • maikub says:

    I saw a familiar looking girl in a purple scarf today, was that you K?

    • KTVB says:

      hehe I was wearing a pink scarf… XD

      I did see a girl lining up for the autographs constantly looking at me though, is that you? haha

      • suki says:

        haha no, i didn’t wear a scarf

      • GLORIA says:

        NOOO that was me !
        hahahaha, I knew you looked familiar ! hahahah ๐Ÿ™‚ Sorry if i scared you !

        • KTVB says:

          LOL! haha this is funny XD everyone getting mixed up with everyone lol

          How did you find it Gloria? You got your autograph! ๐Ÿ™‚

        • GLORIA says:

          LOL. The autograph was organised really bad. Like there was literally no space at all ! So many people cut corners and like those lining seems totally unfair ! I rather it was at the ground floor, more open.

  • maikub says:

    ah pink, probably was you then. i think you were with a friend with a creamish coloured jacket?

    also, i’m a actually a guy haha ๐Ÿ˜›
    i was not lining up but was sitting down. was there so my sister could go and look after her haha. she was in the line though and i did say to her there was a person who looked in the crowd who looked like you. i don’t think she kept looking at you though.

  • Miyuki says:

    i went!!! ahaa and i think i saw you K!!! were you wearing black? i saw chibi thought!! haha sry if i sound like a stalker! i thought you looked familiar xDDD

    i didnt get an autograph though ๐Ÿ™ …but got some pics ^^ but lots of them had other peoples heads blocking the way >.> cuz lots of people were standing on chairs~~~

    and yup! same! why did they have it in the FOOD COURT?!!! there was this poor guy who was trying to eat and all these grannies were yelling and stuff around him…

    BUT IT WAS FUN!!! ^^

    looking forward to seeing your clips!!

  • Badger says:

    The food court at Sussex Centre is too cramped/small to host an event like this. TVBA have a permanent stand in Market City so why not host it there? The stars can appear on stage in the centre court at Market City which is much bigger so many more fans can come to see them from the ground floor or the higher floors. Do Sussex Centre have a special relationship with TVBA? Why else would TVBA stage it there?

    TVB stars also come to Australia at other times during the year, but TVBA don’t appear to run any promotion events unless you do business with them or subscribe to Jadeworld. Not very effective/strategic marketing and event management.

    • suki says:

      they did used to host such events at market city level 1, where they now have temporary stores but that was like 10 years ago. back then, there was no need for such VIP tickets. you just had to wait in line, get on stage, take photos with celebrities and get their autographs. very easy to follow

  • GLORIA says:

    HAHA I saw you today, should have said HI your famous ! LOL !

  • ChemicalXYZ says:

    i took a few photos…only got to process 2 tonight…thought i might share them

  • Twinstars says:

  • rainy says:

  • Twinstars says:
