Limelight Years

limelight years (TVB)

I’m just done watching Limelight years and yes, I’m late with the review again but I thoroughly enjoyed it albeit the fact like most drama one watches these day seems to be almost the same and the ending seems too happy.

But it is Liza Wang as well as Damian Lau , 2 veterans , therefore, one must watch for sure.  I think it is a 21 episodes , so not too long or short and I do like Linda’s acting , so do check it out , the links are available I am sure.

HK Veteran Actress Fung Reunites With Godmother

cats

Fung Bo bo is already 60 years old and she still looks so good ! I saw her interview with ST and it was quite funny when her Godmother said she is not so pretty now as compared to when she was a kid.  We all know that Fung was a child actress and she is a lot more famous than she is right now.

I think her meet up is just a gimmick? to make news ?  What do you think?  if I were Fung , I would be able to find the long lost old lady if I wanted to.

Romantic Repertoire TVB Sitcom

cats

I’ve just finished watching Romantic Repertoire a tvb sitcom of 21 episodes and I’m pretty happy to inform you that it was a pretty good sitcom.  21 episodes seems a wee bit long to me because the end of the story was in such a hurry to end.  Wasn’t the ending that I was hoping for , but it was as close to reality as I could tell.

TVB has outdone itself this time with this sitcom.  Moses seems to be acting like himself in real life it seems but Joyce Koi seems to be a little bit too old for being the leading lady?  Joyce’s real age is 49 years of age but is acting for a 39 yrs old, even though she pulled it off really well – to pair her up with Moses, seems a little off in my opinion.  Of course, I understood why they put her in this sitcom because Joyce is actually an opera singer in Hong Kong and a famous one if I am not wrong.

Louise Lee portrayed a very good mother/manager for Joyce (Kan Kit) and I also saw old actor like Pat Poon as well.  Although Pat Poon was placed in a very small role, it was good to see some oldies around still.

Interior Designer Moon Sing-hong (Moses Chan) purchases a flat in anticipation of marrying his longtime girlfriend who is expected to be returning home soon after studying abroad. Without his knowledge or permission his older sister rents out his flat to popular Cantonese opera singer Kan Kit (Joyce Koi). Unable to break the rental lease, Sing-hong uses all kinds of tactics to try to make Kan Kit move out but her manager Lin Sau-fong (Louise Lee) helps her stand firm. When Sing-hong’s best friend and business partner Tin Hak-kan (Evergreen Mak), meets Kit he develops an instant attraction to her and ask Sing-hong to help him pursue Kit. In order to help his friend with love Sing-hong gets close to Kit to find out about her interests. The two soon work out their differences and become friends. However their typical life is turned upside down when Kit gets into a car accident and finds her biological mother, while Sing-hong finds out his longtime girlfriend has been living in Hong Kong all along with another man.

Busker’s Festival

cats

We do not have a busker’s festival in our town but in the city , every year they do have a huge festival inviting buskers from everywhere and as far as Australia to come for the festival.  The festival draws in loads of tourists from around the county and many from the USA.  I especially loved those  flat top mandolin  and the violins as well as harp , and we try to go for the festival every year.   But if you are thinking of doing the same as I , make sure you bring lots of sun screen , a good walking shoes and preferably a small portable stool, you may need that with hours of busking all around the city.

Jackie Chan Is Dead Hoax

01

I first saw the news on facebook but you and I know that this isn’t the first time that some people wants Jackie Chan dead it seems.  There is even an RIP Jack Chan on Facebook but Jackie Chan is very much alive.  So die hard fans of Jackie, do not cry just yet.

Jackie Chan expresses that he was shocked with the news that he is dead but he isn’t the only celebrity reported to be dead a few times.  It seems like Jay Chou has also been targeted quite a few times.

The Gigolo 2015 Cat III Movie Leaked Online

01

Direct translation – Duck King ! hahahha!  too funny !  I just saw an article on it and how hong kong actress Candy Yeun is begging people not to watch the leak version but go to the theatres because it’s clearer and is of HD quality.  It is said that Candy Yeun stripped for an audition with the director and the director was really pleased with her figure.  So much sacrifices to be made for a movie but I guess if you are confident about your body , you won’t mind eh?

Apparently, the cantonese version was leaked like a few months ago , and I didn’t even realized it , how horrible I am.  Anyhow, I found it with my source but haven’t watched it yet – those who wants to watch it , you know what to do.  Who cares if it is HD or not right? lol  !

The Gigolo opens with a fleeting glimpse of a massive prosthetic penis, so obviously this shouldn’t be your destination if you’re seeking cinematic class. He Jufeng innocent man (He Haowen) glamorous appearance, but different intrinsic nature Treasures “convex” out of the limelight easily become school fans. He was forced to drop out because of a fighting incident, the mother duck sold in markets (Lu Wan Yan) because of spine problems and downtime, suddenly became the family breadwinner front, life is so earth-shaking changes occur … in front of single-minded cousin red sister (Elena Kong ornaments) duck shop operated as cleaners, but handsome appearance and personality is often silly not molested

Etta Yearns For Jacky Chan

cats

 15 years old Etta Ng, the illegitimate daughter of famous Jacky Chan wants to meet her biological father.  And who wouldn’t if your father is Jacky Chan right?  And for Jacky to not do anything with Etta , I think that is so freaking wrong !  you fathered the kid, you better have some sort of relationship with her.

Etta I heard, tried committing suicide because she misses her biological father and her mom – the once Hong Kong beauty queen had resorted to drinking because of stress at work and home front.  So Jacky Chan – do the right thing !

As for what Jacky Chan had said thus far ?  to let nature takes it course !  yah !  right !  apparently your actions produced the kid , so take care of your own asshole !

Noblesse Oblige

01

Just done watching Noblese Oblige which was for viewing in December and it took me this long to get to it as there were too many tvb series.  If you are like me, I only watch period tv shows when I have nothing much to watch.  So I started watching without much expectations as you all know that period shows are quite the exaggeration of the real thing but it was fun to watch how our ancestors used to live.

Nuns-to-be Tavia Yeung and Cilla Kung are desperate to find money to treat the head nun’s illness. By coincidence, they meet the wealthy heir of a bank (Kenneth Ma) and are forced to become maids at his household to repay their debts. Tavia often has to save Kenneth from trouble with her superior martial arts skills. Although they disagree with each other, they still support each other during critical times and unconsciously develop a strong bond. With the help of a nobleman, Kenneth becomes a magistrate. His career goes smoothly with help from his brother Joel Chan, who is a governor, and good friend Benjamin Yuen. However, Kenneth soon discovers the corruption and abuse of power in the political world. People around him will act in perverse ways for the sake of personal gain. When he discovers the truth behind the massacre of Tavia’s family when she was young, it gets them both thrown into jail…

I did like the tv series that consisted of 20 episodes and it kept me interested till the end.  Tavia Yeung is someone I like watching too, so it made it easier on the eyes.  For those who are contemplating whether to watch this tvb series, you can definitely give it a try.

Jackie Chan: Never Grew Up, Just Older

01

Written and published in China, I was hoping that it would be in English as well but alas, a look for it on Amazon was fruitless.  Hopefully, in the near future, I will get to read it in English.  I’m pretty sure a lot of you out there are like me , are able to listen to cantonese and mandarin but unable to read them so well since our first language is English.

According to what I’ve read thus far, this new autobiography is a tell all , where he talks about his affair with Elaine Ng and also his short-lived relationship with Teresa Teng.  Jackie also wrote about his relationship with his wife as well as his son.  I would definitely like to get a copy of it in English, here’s me crossing my fingers hoping it will be published in English soon.

Lok Yi & Millionaire In-Laws

01

Rumors has it that star from Come Home Love Lok Yi is having problems with his millionaire in -laws?  But Lok denies it and tells reporters that he gets along just fine with his in-laws.  I don’t blame him if he got a little upset with all the reports because even if they were true, there is no need to openly acknowledge it and upset the in – laws.  Marrying someone from a different background and status can be really hard on both couple.

HK Actress Beaten Up By Ex-Boyfriend

01

Whether a woman cheats on her man or not , there is no reason to hit a woman. I think men who hits their wife/girlfriends or sisters or any woman are cowards and basically should be whipped.  PERIOD.

Mag Lam was reportedly physically abused 3 times by her ex , accusing her of cheating on him.  Mag of course denies it and even though had given the ex – 3 chances, felt that it was time to move on.  Good for you girl !  any man who beats or abuses their g/f don’t deserve to have any.

Elaine Ng Arrested For Child Abuse

001

Elaine Ng, ex – lover of Jackie Chan was said to have been arrested because of child abuse.  Etta Ng , love child of Jackie’s and Elaine 11 years ago, was said to have confided with her school officials and after much discussion, police were called in because they were afraid for Etta’s safety.

Etta was really upset when the cops appeared at her doorsteps and told the cops that her mom didn’t hit her at all.  Released on bail, Elaine was suspected of having dangerous substances in her house and also drinking and getting drunk in front of Etta.  Poor Etta, of course, no child should have to go thru’ something like this.

Entertaining At Home

cats

Inspired at a friend’s party this year, we’ve decided to invest in a better acoustic guitar , so that the family can play our musical instruments together when we have a party too.  The kid plays the piano and the spouse plays the guitar , so I want to take up playing the guitar as well.   So instead of getting myself a new basic acoustic, we’ve decided that the spouse can get a better one and I will use his old one.   If you are looking for one yourself, this one is a pretty awesome one, you can  Mail your order today!  just like we did.

cats

I couldn’t get into the show for the longest time till recently and now I cannot stop watching it.  I’m only on Episode 18 out of Episode 25 and I’m dying to find out what happened in the end.   A very heartwarming story about 2 sisters who were separated because one went to Hong Kong for her education ;but the other one who got left behind had to suffer with a mother who had stroke when she was still in school.   But the one in Hong Kong also had to suffer a lot because the aunt who raised her would beat her up all the time.

Both still had to make many sacrifices when they came to age , as their relationships with their spouses were just as troublesome.  One husband has a mistress and had a baby with her and the other , abandoned her at the altar.  Both sisters underwent lots of hardship with life and relationships, when will it end?  when will the suffering be over?

Interested in watching this heartwarming and heart-wrenching tv show?  check it out , you won’t regret it .

Simon Yam Picks Charlene To Win Best Actress

cats

Charlene Choi has come a long way from her singing days with Ah Sa I’ll have to say.   And of course the sex scandal years ago with Edison Chen and Gillian Chung that might have forced the girls to part ways.  Charlene starred in a recent film called SARA (Choi Gei) with Simon had their premiere a few days ago.

Simon who had seen the film claimed that Ah Sa did well and said her acting was excellent in a press conference.  When asked if he would vote for Ah Sa , he said of course.  Well, good luck to Charlene, I hope she really gets the long awaited award.
