    Congratulation to shining star! especially to Mr Liao, a true icon in the dragon fest legend, last man standing.

    I was the ex-s star member, unfortunately due to silly dispute with liao brothers ah wei and ah chin, departed from the group (AKA I am known as ah chun nee) and launched the Platinum dragon group with first of its kind dragon head rather than the classic flat headed look, painted in gold, rather than yellow or red, after the startup for the first year, like many in those days, fled the forbidden town and headed to new the world, god knows what happen to Platinum…..Surprise that liao has keep the momentum and culture going, as i said earlier he has the true passion and today he has champion in this tradition.
