Benu Mabhena.

In a previous post, I wrote about My grandpa teaching us good moral lessons. It not only impacted me, but all nine of us sublings. You never know when you are entertaining angels he told us.

Here is my brother henry's account.

Benu's father's friendly presence during the premier of the movie Blood Diamond on December 6, 2006 made our holiday in Hollywood so memorable.

When we were traveling into Los Angeles, we met this old man and started chatting with him. We didn't know he was the father of some one famous. we met Benu abhena's father, who chatted with me.

That night at the premier, we happened to be at the corner of the Kodak Theatre which featured the Blood Diamond, and we then hanged out at the entrance of the Roosevelt Hotel where the stars were celebrating after the show.

As we were gazing at the stars with the paparazzi snapping photos away, this man came out of the hotel and talked with me and my wife. He talked to us like buddies. We were surprised with his friendly gesture and I told him he must have mistaken us for someone else. He kept on saying he knew us. My wife insisted that this couldn't be because we came from an Island of Borneo in the country of Malaysia. When he reminded us that he met us on our arrival at Los Angeles, we then remembered talking with this friendly guy. He told us that, had he known we were not attending the premier, he would have invited us to join him. This was because he had movie passes with his daughter acting in the movie!

When his daughter appeared, he proudly asked her to take the photos with us, so that's how a paparazzi took our photos together.

I wish you would convey this message to Benu and her father, for his presence made our holiday in the United States so very special. I hope these photos would remind him of that special proud moment of his in Hollywood.

Yours sincerely,

Henry and Elley Chan
From Malaysia
