Anthony Bourdain-The Layover, Singapore
Anthony Bourdain or Tony for short, and I have been friends for a while and we met when I was shooting his publicity for No Reservations. We hit it off the first time we met although he hated photo shoots. Started bringing him to a couple of places for The New York Times and on the next trip even came over for a home cooked meal. He's always been true to himself, a good friend and honest and that's why he is a success and we all like him for the no BS vibe. Says everything we have always wanted to say but didn't have the courage to. The video attached was shot in July as he called me up to be in the premiere episode of his new show The Layover which aired in the USA last Monday. Our scene was Samy's Curry on Dempsey Road, my hang out down the road from my studio. I've been going there to then the Civil Service Club since Army days when I was fighting for my country from 9-5. The chicken marsala will kick your ass and you will want more. This is pretty much the ONLY descent meal you will get in Dempsey Road Disneyland. Look no furthur.
