Whatabout Marcus Chin (陈建彬)



I do know Marcus personally, though not close. We used to engage him to perform gigs onboard our vessel and resort for quite a while and whatever recent 'perceived bad publicity' of him covered by the press, it will never cross our mind not to engage him for future gigs with us solely based on moral ground, if at all.

Without a doubt, he is an almost complete artiste, can sing well, a good actor and a versatile host. He may not have attained the level of a superstar despite been in show business for umpteen years, he is nonetheless, a celebrity which, unfortunately is subjected to public scrutiny. Celebrity is still a human being just like anyone of us, he or she still needs to make a living the way he or she knows well. They may be married, divorced or single and for those who are married, they may have extra marital affair but what's the big fuss, really. The latest saga on Marcus, a married man being involved with his manager, a young lady in her 20s has been so widely covered in the Chinese press seemed to have 'pre-judged' him and his girlfriend as guilty of committing a grave crime. He had to explain his personal marriage which is on the rock in front of the TV audience, something I feel he owes nobody any explanation other than his own wife. If their marriage has hit a rock, it is all up to them to handle their own affair, period. This is a wake-up call to the media to leave him to handle his own affair, give him some breathing space. And to all his fans, support him as an artiste first and not to shun him based on his extra marital affair.

Marcus, please continue to give your all as an artiste and never be swayed by negative opinions of others. Cheers to you!

Collin although i dun know u but let me tell u something.If the needle never poke u .U will never know the pain. Imagine yourself as Matcus wife you know that u and your husband have been unfaithful to you but all along u having been keeping mum.Till now it all burst out will you still think that Marcus is the one who is most hurt . Let me tell u .U r wrong his wife is the one that is feeling most hurt.Marcus is a artiste he have the courage to admit it and say sorry then all guys will say he is brave for owning up his wife should forgive him and let him go . But fuck who really cares and think about what te wife feels deep in heart.Not because Marcus is rich now and able to give his 60% earnings to his wife means that he can do whatever he want and be unfaithful.

Hope you are reading my comment. I can understand your feeling standing from his wife's perspective and rightly so, his wife is one who should feel the hurt most. However, media was not doing neither party any favour by playing up the issue and that probably forced Marcus to seek clarification publicly. My stand still remains, this is their private matter and best for them to resolve amicably, not in public eye.

Baan Dada Charity Ride 2013

It is another Bike-Aid Singapore's initiative and this time, Nicky was our lead organiser and he was ably assisted by Ler and Jennifer, both of whom have had involved in many fund raising in Singapore, Thailand and the region over the years.  Jennifer and Ler have cemented close relationship with some Thais in the biking community and best of all, they can also converse in the ear- soothing Thai language, certainly a plus for us.  And also, not forgetting, June, the ever young looking wife of Nicky who has been providing the admin support with flight reservation, the program proper, etc and during the 3 days cycling tour, following the cycling entourage in the support vehicle.  June has been a great help throughout, ensuring we were hydrated that kept us going and going.  And there is another lovely spouse of David and she is Ivy who has also been great in providing the vital support to the entourage.  Co-incidentally, this is also the 10th year for Bike-Aid Singapore to organise …

Fruit buffet for our taking  Admittedly, this is a tour not meant for any typical tourist. One has to love the outdoor, prepared to rough it out somewhat and sometimes, have to get wet to really enjoy the trip. In all there were 42 who joined me for this one day trip up north to Johor. We even had a gregarious lady who flew in from New Zealand to join us. Her name is Alison, a Briton who lives in New Zealand and this is what she has penned after her trip and I quote, "Thanks so much for this great and varied trip Collin. Mountain climbing, pampering, the fruit farm and all the lovely food made for a great day. Thanks for info below Kevin- yes definitely in no rush to eat chempedak again!! Great group and lovely to see so many of you again from previous meet-ups too :-)". Hers is not the only good review, we hav…
