Wu Chun pays homage to S'pore in new book

Wu Chun, the Bruneian actor and former member of popular Taiwanese Mandopop boy band Fahrenheit, paid tribute to our sunny isle in his new autobiography Ignite Courage as this was the place that jump-started his superstar career.

Ignite Courage, which can be bought online for NT$380 (S$16), will be released on Wednesday and all proceeds will go to charities of Wu's choice.

His fans, who have waited three years for it since he first announced he was writing it, have been running amok online expressing immense excitement at seeing the intimate side of the rather private celebrity.

In the 256-page tome, Wu said he would reveal things about himself that would surprise people and would share personal pictures like those of his bedroom and two new tattoos.

So just how much does the 33-year-old love Singapore? He cites 77th Street in Far East Plaza as his favourite shop when he's here.

For those of you who weren't born in the 70s or 80s, it was THE place then to buy cool clothes and accessories. Listing popiah, bak kut teh (pork rib soup) and Mandarin Hotel's chicken rice as his favourite food, Wu also revealed his love for stuffing his face during supper at Newton hawker centre.

Chinese desserts are also a must-have for him in Chinatown.

Taking public transport everywhere was second nature to him and he was familiar with our MRT routes.

He also makes it a point to do charity work here when he can.

During Chinese New Year this year, he visited Lions Home For The Elders in Toa Payoh. But why does he have a bond to Singapore?

In his early 20s, Wu borrowed money from his dad to open Fitness Zone, now the most successful gym in Brunei, with branches in Kiulap and Serusop, in Brunei.
