The donation goal was met rather quickly and we here at Kung Fu Fandom can not thank you enough for the support. The plan is once the new site is up and running, the focus will then turn to the forum on updating and adding these new features and we will continue to strive to make your time spent here on the forum as enjoyable as possible. _/|\_

Greetings All, Nei Hou!

I've been popping in and out of various sections on the site ( sound chamber mostly) and into the forums for a while now, and absolutely love it here, I only just got around to registering today to be able to post to the forums.

I was born and am still mostly based in Scotland and have been collecting since around 1988(ish), back then it was mostly all Made In Hong Kong/ Eastern Heroes VHS tapes from HMV and Virgin ( with the odd occasional Bootleg Shaw's tape purchased from Flash Legs Kung Fu in Clapham Common)

At my largest point of collecting/hoarding I had around 300-400 titles spread over DVD and VHS - but sold everything off when I moved to the States ( LA and NJ mostly) between 2006-2012.

Back in the UK again since then and have been slowly building up my collection again over the past year or so. Definitely still mostly a Shaw Brothers fan and been using DDD House and eBay for Mail order and Fopp for 88films Blu Rays. I was also able to pick up a pretty sizable chunk of DVD's earlier this year when I visited Hong Kong for the first time, really I was there just to get married ( my screen name here is my married name). but was also able to visit the Shaw's Studio and the incredible Bruce Lee exhibition whilst in the city, so have a pretty good sense of where is good to track down new and second hand DVD's if anybody is visiting and wants a few pointers on where to start looking for titles -

My wife is Chinese, from Canton province, so I'm really using the films now more than anything else to help me learn Cantonese (and I guess also to relive my youth :)

Really happy to be able to be part of what is a truly incredible resource of information and seems like a really great meeting place for like minded fans!

 

A big welcome to the forum and congratulations for your wedding.

It's nice to have another Shaws' fan here and how lucky you are to have been able to go there and find some dvds...!!

Thank you for the warm welcome @ShawAngela  and @Burnout29 🙏

Hong Kong was absolutely incredible! Easily my favorite of all the limited parts of China I've seen so far ( only visited HK, Shenzen, and Shanghai)

And @Burnout29 I've hardly explored the UK much tbh! and still feel like I've only scratched the surface of the countries I'd love to visit, I have been very lucky to see quite a few amazing places though.

Thailand and Hong Kong both are both easy to recommend highly and quite cost effective to travel to if you don't mind going at weird times of the year, (Thailand especially)

Thank you for the welcome Drunken Monk, Silver and Gold Dragon and Asmo.

Asmo, Yakuza will be the only reason I eventually get a PS4 lol.  Probably gonna have to be very soon, it's been irking me missing out on the two latest games.  That first games' story was epic.  The Miike movie based on it, not so much.

No doubt. A PS4 is a good investment given the amount of good titles on it. 

Never actually saw the Miike film, but heard that it deviated a bit from the game's storyline?

Welcome aboard from France, ami québécois. By your nickname, I thought you were from the staff of the HKMDB website.  :bs_coveredlaugh:

Welcome to the forum. By your first name, I thought that you were from France...

Hey, @Secret Executioner, I didn't know that you were also from France, or maybe I forgot it...

Jean, there is at least another Canadian member here @bigrogie, and don't worry, sometimes, my English can be awful  ! For instance, I realized that I wrote "raper" instead of "rapist" in a post !!

I hope that you'll enjoy being a member of this forum.
