Wubing: CKE – Criterion Collection

Article and photos from Wubing on 7 May 2009:

Yesterday while I was waiting for my friend in HMV Singapore, I came across this interesting Chungking Express DVD, known as the Criterion Collection. This new wide-screen format was believed to be release only in 2008. When I saw it, I was immediately drawn to the sideview of Faye. I feel that the concept is really good so I decided to take some photo secretly using my handphone for your website.
