It reflected in his home, too. While it also has a basketball court, his vacation house also boasts an ‘All Star Gallery.’ The biggest pieces of NBA memorabilia are of his Michael Jordan museum. His personal museum contains MJ’s jerseys, championship rings, signed photos and shoes.


Being the All Star Gallery, it’s not limited to just MJ. It also contains a collection of Filipino boxer, Manny Pacquiao such as his signed boxing gloves. Even Wu Chun is an All Star in his museum with a wall of magazine covers featuring him. The Sunshine Angel star has seized every opportunity in basketball he got and was extremely excited to meet His Airness years ago.

That time Michael Jordan left Wu Chun star-struck

In 2018, he participated in the Brunei Basketball Association’s event, Low San Brunei Basketball Open. When he was a teen, he played against Yao Ming, who went on to play for the Houston Rockets. But it was meeting Michael Jordan that left Wu Chun full of emotions.

It was at the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. The Taiwanese star was invited by Coca-Cola and he jumped on the chance. He was so excited to meet the 6x NBA champion that he said he didn’t sleep for 54 hours straight.

He’d design his Brunei home after the All-Star exhibition and he had to dedicate a section of it to the people who inspire him. “I feel like this is a space for me to be inspired. I never thought I would make movies and give concerts. These people I look up to taught me to face failure without fear and be brave to take challenges,” he said about his museum.
