2009 - BEAUTY WORLD
By DICK LEE & MICHAEL CHIANG
Beauty world – a world of loud colours and garish lights. Equal parts mystery and intrigue, where surprises lurk in every corner and not everything is always as it seems...enter this noisy, bustling world of leering towkays with ulterior motives, imposing mamasans and delicately powdered girls through the eyes of innocent Ivy Chan, seeking to unravel the mystery that is her life. Along the way, she meets Ah Hock, a hardened gangster who begins to realise that there may perhaps be a larger world than Beautyworld, deals with Lulu, the dominant and seemingly harsh number one cabaret girl, and learns to grow up, very, very, quickly.
