Give me shelter

Give me shelter

I'm so full

I'm so full

I'm so full

I'm so full

I'm so full

I'm so full

Can't sleep

Can't sleep

Can't sleep. Can't sleep at all

Who's naughty?

You. You're the naughty one.

Making me unable to sleep


Thank you

Good morning

Hey, what's up? Late again?

Only five minutes. Traffic accident

That means you're late

But sometimes I arrive early

You should arrive early

A junior like you has no right to be late

I can't stand your behaviour

OK, don't argue any more

Get out, put down the tools

These are my own tools

Go away

This is such an unfair world

Why don't you go to the king of hell

to complain about me?

I was fired again

It's all over

No future, no pay

Nobody, nothing left

Not really. Luckily,

you still have the tools and a place to go

All's fine if there's a place to sleep.

Isn't that right?

See, you have place to sleep because of me

I was sent from heaven to look after you

It's all over. No future, no pay

Give me shelter

Give me shelter

Nobody, nothing left. It's all over

Don't be afraid.

You was sent from heaven to look after me

Kill you, kill you

Kill 50 pigs per day,

and I can buy a flat in 1 years

Hey, I've been watching you for a long time

You told me you're experienced. See,

you cut such thick slices

Can you cut these pieces thinner?

Look at this. There's so much sauce

ls it taking a shower? Having a bath?

Madam, check the bill

OK, coming

Slice them thinner!

Take it

You bastard.

Slacking off on your first working day?

Come over here

What's your full name?

My surname's Kwan

Same character as "shut"

No wonder

You want us to shut

What bad luck

Fatty Poon, you replace his post

Then what can I do?

You're fired. Don't come back

Don't come back again?

You're tall but useless

I have to look up each time I scold you.

You're so tall. Only ghosts would hire you

Go and apply for social security

I'm poor but I won't take a government handout

I believe I can earn a living if I work hard

$6.50. The price went up


Yes, the price went up. Thanks

I'm so full

I'm so full

Building homes but nowhere for me to stay.

Cutting BBQ pork but no BBQ pork to eat

Fired again without a reason

Even the bakeries have closed down


Can't afford the rent.

You don't even have a place to sleep


It's truly sad to have no money

The world is so unfair

ls it true only ghosts would hire me?

(the grave of tycoon's wife was dug out)

I'm poor, but I won't take

a government handout

These are luxury property

stay in luxury house when they are alive

and they even occupy my land

when they are dead

Chu Oi-giu? She's an old woman.

Not going to trouble a woman.

Chu Wing-kit. Born in 1966.Died in 2013

Died not long ago. Beloved wife Kwok Wing-lei

How sad to lose a husband at such a young age

Cool. You're the coolest.

When you see the note,

redeem the urn with 50,000 dollars

Winter-something mixed games?

Mixed vegetable soup?

Born in 1929. Old folk

Those sons and grandchildren

should be good heirs

The sun is coming out,

find a few more, and leave

To eat, you need to grab a seat

To give birth, you need to obtain a bed

To study, you need to gain a degree

To work, you need to get a promotion

A bed for the living

A niche for the dead

Everyone struggles hard for a place

Isn't that right?

I'm sure their heirs would buy them

columbarium niches


The heaven spirit, the earth spirit. Bless me

to have food to eat and a place to live

Hello, who is it?

I wait for a whole day

Did you receive the notice?

When do you want to redeem the urn?

Fruit Chan

Fruit Chan Gor (Chinese: 陳果; born 15 April 1959) is a Hong Kong Second Wave screenwriter, filmmaker and producer, who is best known for his style of film reflecting the everyday life of Hong Kong people. He is well known for using amateur actors (such as Sam Lee in Made in Hong Kong, Wong Yau-Nam in Hollywood Hong Kong) in his films. He became a household name after the success of the 1997 film Made in Hong Kong, which earned many local and international awards. Chan was deeply influenced by the era of sixties film in Japan, for the reason that they were not afraid to produce realistic movies that addressed society's problems. In particular, the Japanese director Nagisa Oshima was someone who Chan looked up to and thought of when directing Made in Hong Kong.Chan's credits include Durian Durian. Also, Stanley Kwan stated that he was talking with Lee's family to make a movie about the late action movie icon. Further, in April, Chinese state media announced that its national broadcaster started filming a 40-part TV series on Bruce Lee to promote Chinese culture for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. more…
