    2. Wong Hong

    Old style posing again, nice 3/4 poses, but holding too much fluid. Calls the crowd for some dance styled music which is very popular with the crowd.

    46 year old Eddie starts in a classic kneeling pose then amps things up with a techno tune which fires up the crowd, then just walks off the stage, a bit weird.
