SFGate is a little late on the Jadin Wong obit, but that cool photo is worth the wait. I rented the film from Netflix just to see Jadin dance, but unfortunately she only appears in the background in one shot. What a disappointment. :(

Yeah, I was surprise how long ago you noted it on your blog.

I should have thought of that! But, actually, Patrick Tse seems pretty relaxed with the paparazzi.

Me, too. But I'm keeping my expectations low.
