The miracle day was August 11th. I planned to visit Central Park in the morning and then try my luck in SVA for the screening ticket. Just minutes after I woke up, I was told that there would be a gathering with Tony in his hotel this afternoon. At that moment, I was like, really?! Itís so unbelievable and unexpected. A miracle I shall say. Quickly I set up a time to meet together with other fans before we went to the gathering. I also brought my friend with me to go together.

Now is the highlight part, after we arrived in the lobby, we found that Tony was having lunch with his colleagues in the restaurant just near the lobby. I was so excited to finally see him at that time! It looks like that heís in very good mood. We were all very excited at that moment. After waiting for a while, Info came out and led us into the restaurant. There were 10 of us and everybody took a seat quickly. At the very beginning, we gave Tony our cards, he read it and smiled. Then it was really quiet for some seconds. Tony looked around at everybody. I suggested that we may start from self- introduction and everybody briefly introduced themselves. When itís my turn, after talking about my name, Tony realized that we met before a year ago in China. I felt so happy that he still remembered me. Because itís in the restaurant, the environment was really noisy and so I couldnít hear very clear what heís talking about, especially when he was talking to someone on the opposite direction. But it didnít matter, to sit there looking at him already made me very satisfied. I didnít have many questions to ask. Not because I was nervous, but I did enjoy looking at him answering othersí questions patiently. And because of the noise around, itís hard for me to involve in his conversation with others. I remembered that I asked him about his trip in LA. He said that he worked there only for 2 hours and the rest time is free. He asked me how Iím doing recently and I said Iím good. He said that I was so quiet last time and I said yes, last time I was too nervous (that was my first time to meet Tony) He also asked me when I will graduate and my plan after graduation. After the Q & A, Tony started to sign autograph for us. I was so stupid that I didnít prepare anything related to Tony for autograph. I thought I had nothing in my Cleveland home but actually I had a Lust Caution DVD and a magazine but forgot to bring in. So finally I gave Tony a postcard I bought in NY and Info also provided me a 2046 poster for autograph. Another stupid thing I did was that after I get my two autographs back, I looked at the first one and saw it was in Chinese. I found the person next to me got an English autograph from Tony and so I gave back the postcard to Tony and asked him whether he can sign another English autograph for me. He didnít sign but pointed to the postcard, at first I didnít get it. Then I took a close look at the postcard and found that he already signed in English for me. I felt so embarrassed that time. Embarassed

After signing all autographs, Tony spent some time to take pictures with all of us. when itís my turn, I gave him my present, the little yellow cab, before I took picture with him. Tony had his hand slightly on my shoulder. After all of us finished with the pictures, one girl asked if she can retake one with Tony because the previous ones was kind of blur or something, Tony was very nice and said of course. He wanted to make sure everyone is satisfied with their photo. There was a short time when Tony was standing near to me, I told him that I arrived at the same airport as he did one day before and will fly back the next day. I also joked that maybe its because his coming that the airline company provide discount air ticket that weekend. He responded with a smile. He asked how long does my flight take and I said around 2 hours. He said he didnít expect to meet me here in NY. I didnít expect either. Itís like a dream. Thank you Tony for making this dream come true. Then its about the time and we wave goodbye.

The miracle continues. Although I didnít have the ticket, I decided to try my luck for the screening. When I arrived at the reception desk, I found that the theater people have a name list to check. I just talked to them that Iím a great fan of this movie and fly from other city for this movie. Luckily, they gave me a ticket and let me in! I never expected that this can be so easy. Then I walked in and minutes after the movie starts. My another dream came true: watching the Grandmaster in big screen in the U.S. Tony attended Q & A after the screening.

After the screening, Tony was surrounded by people asking for pictures. He was really nice and patient and met everybodyís demands. We got a chance to take a picture with him again in the theater. This time he wore suits. Then Tony showed us a picture in his phone, the picture of our cards and the little yellow cab. I felt so surprised and happy to see that. Then we can see that picture in his facebook and the English forum here as well.

OK, my story should end here. This is my miracle, unbelievable, legendary trip in New York City. It is really different for me to get the chance to meet Tony in person in the United States. It means a lot. Iím not sure how long will I stay in the US and when will I get back to my hometown. But this experience is for sure a great treasure for me.

Thank you Info for organizing this.
Thank you all my new friends in NYC.
And thank you Tony for sparing time with us. You are soooooooo nice and wish you enjoy your vacation from now on.
Wink

Thanks amy0208,
Nice stories and pics Very Happy .
I remember that lady in the second pic of yours pulled out a huge folder with lots of stuff in it for Tony to sign Shocked . Tony was so patient and signed a lot of them - He would be stuck in the theater lobby for the whole day if he autographed all of them Wink.

Thanks, everybody, for sharing stories and pictures! And thanks goes to Info & Tony, again for saving me seats at the screening. The whole experience was such a blast!

Here's the stuff I shot at the Chicago screening. The video footage is now in HD, so it looks better than it did in the previous posting. Just make sure when you view it, to put your video's settings at the highest quality.
