We are absolutely thrilled to share that Mediacorp Studios has set up camp at Sutera Harbour Resort from 24 July to 22 August 2015.
It is hoped that this joint promotion effort with Mediacorp Studios will promote Sabah as an ideal filming location and also encourage travellers around the world to visit the beautiful state of Sabah.
Our new friends, Mediacorp Celebrities and Film Crew were given a warm Sabahan welcome with cultural dance and welcome drinks upon their arrival at the Resort.
On 27 July 2015, members of the media and press were invited to a lensing ceremony held among the Mediacorp cast and film crew at The Pacific Sutera Hotel’s tennis court. The ceremony marks the official start of filming for the 30-episode ‘Beyond Words’ Chinese drama by Mediacorp Studios Malaysia/Singapore in Kota Kinabalu starring Mediacorp celebrities Terence Cao, Paige Chua, Pierre Png, Tong Xin, Emily Lim, Chris Tong, Shane Pow, Jayley Woo, Henley Hii and Zhang Yao Dong.
After the lensing ceremony, everyone was ushered into the press conference room where Yeo Saik Pin (centre), Vice-President of MediaCorp Regional Productions announced that Sutera Harbour Resort will be ‘Beyond Words’ main filming location in which 20 episodes will be filmed in the Resort. The remaining 10 episodes will be shot in various locations in and out of Kota Kinabalu including popular tourist spots such as our North Borneo Railway steam train, Gaya Street Sunday Market, and the Filipino Handicraft Market.
‘Beyond Words’ follows the life of Liang Lekun, though not extremely well-off, lives a life that often makes his peers envious of him. When Lekun takes an early retirement to make amends for his much neglected family life, problem arises and forces him to leave his family in Singapore for Sabah. The pang of homesickness begins to creep into Lekun’s soul- will he return home or stay in his newfound career to keep the family financially sound? Watch the SPECIAL PROMO SHOWREEL BELOW:
