Jazz Festival In The City

 

Jazz festival has always inspire us to be musicians for the month  since I was young.  And now my nephews and nieces are the same, easily inspired or do I called it easily swayed.  One year I remembered we had to get some  squier guitars at musiciansfriend.com  for them because the want to form a band after watching a Jazz festival that we had brought them with us as a treat.  Their parents complained that it was an expensive treat in the end.

So this year for the Jazz Festival in the city , we are not going with any teenagers or wanna be musician or Jazz player, we will be heading out to the city in July and staying for a few days , to enjoy the Jazz festivals as well as shopping and eating.

Live Events & Concerts

 01

I’ve been to many live event and concerts when I was living in Asia but after migrating to the west , I hardly go because I lived in a small town.   So when the spouse suggested that we attend a music festival out of town , I was quite excited but alas, his type of concerts are loud and noisy.  The  pa speaker system  must be really good because it was extremely loud in the outdoor venue but the spouse loved that kind of music , Rock , so I just went along to be a good sport.

Star Origami Paper

00

Yes, remember the stars that you make with origami paper when you were a kid?  well , I couldn’t afford it when I was a kid, and I wanted to teach my kid how to make them, so I bought some online.  I tried to get some locally but no one sells them , that suxs big time but ordering it online maybe cheaper but you don’t really get to see the thickness of the origami paper till they arrived and like these ones, they are a tat too think for my liking.  I prefer a little bit more thickness to the paper.

It’s easy to learn how to make the star origami and anyone can re-live their childhood again and share this crafty thing with friends and family especially younger kids.  One can find these origami paper for as little as a few bucks but I have to warn you that they take at least a couple of weeks to arrive , so be patient.

Santa’s Christmas Sack For Your Kids

cats

I think it is such a neat idea to get one for your kid during Christmas and it’s just round the corner.  Imagine the look on your kid’s face when he or she wakes up on Christmas morning with all her/his gift in this Santa Sack.  I found this online for $7.34 USD with free shipping but my local yardsale has someone selling them for $25 because it is personalized with your child’s name.  But I figured we can always use a marker and write on the bag, it’s just the same, afterall, you will probably be using it for one year ?

Every Step You Take Online

Moses Chan seems to be in a lot of tv shows these days and his acting seems to be a stale mate recently too , with the strange and high pitch voice, it can get very annoying.  But Moses seems to be cast in a good role all the time , so you can’t hate the guy even if you wanted to.

Myolie Wu is cast as the blind girl in this tv show and they quickly fall in love in the end.  But I asked my friends if one can really fall in love with a blind girl and most said yes but in real life , would a guy who has a good job , makes good money want to have a girlfriend or future wife who is blind ?  wouldn’t she be a burden to him and a hindrance to his advancement for work.  And is her blindness heredity ?  so if they have babies , can the babies be blind too when they grow up ?

It is a good tv show but I don’t find it so realistic lor !

Momentary Lapse of Reason Links & Online Watching

MomentaryLapseOfReasonTVB

Like many of you would know I don’t like the old fashion kinda drama from TVB because I’m more into the now factor but the above drama caught my attention because Tavia Yeung is in the show.  Anyhow, I watched the entire show and really liked it and I think you might just enjoy it too.  I had links to either download them or watch them online, so I was indeed lucky.  Check out the drama.

Synopsis:
Louis Cheung appears to be a cop who can easily betray his own dignity and accept bribes. While investigating a human trafficking case, he meets Tavia Yeung, a woman who has taken a vow of celibacy. Tavia and her friend, Lin Xia Wei, had been kidnapped when they were young, thus, they hate human traffickers. They equally hate corrupt public servants, with the exception of Louis’s colleague, Matt Yeung, whose upright and honest character catches Tavia’s eye and she even falls in love with him. Louis and Matt are initially polar opposites, but after Louis’s acceptance of a bribe causes the death of a witness, it starts to touch his conscience. However, at the time, the police and the underworld each had their own unbreakable, unwritten laws. Matt is demoted amidst the power struggle of businessman Lau Kong and detective Timothy Cheng. It puts his relationship with Tavia to the test. Seeing all of this, Louis’s heart aches, but all he can do is stay silently by Tavia’s side and secretly hope that he can make up for his past mistakes…

Sold Out Eason Chen Concert

01

The last time I went to Eason Chen’s concert was like 10 years ago in UK and it was sold out then.  This year , he is having one in Toronto and Vancouver in December and before the ticket is sold out again, I’m going to book in advance.   Tickets goes from $88 to $388 and obviously, the $388 ones are the ones nearer to the stage.  I don’t know what it is about Eason’s concert but the songs he plays are always so beautifully delivered.  Someone mentioned that he uses  oc1  pickup for his guitar but I don’t know for sure but whatever it is , Eason’s fan just loved his rock and pop concerts and I for one isn’t going to miss this one either.

 

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 !

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.
