Well, filming started a while back but they are holding the opening ceremony today In New York (also the drama title, pun intended!) Beside Li Yi Feng and Maggie Jiang as the leads, we have George Hu and Jiang Meng Jie as well. With In New York (在纽约), Li Yi Feng finally returns to modern dramaland after three years in ancient land. He will be playing a full-of-character lawyer who was raised in New York and lives strictly to uphold justice for the lower-class people. Then one day he meets a fashion designer who came all the way across the world with dreams of becoming the top dog in the said industry. It’s a story of hopeful dreams and bitter reality slaps (my own words, lol) that today’s youths can relate to. Jiang Meng Jie plays assistant and best friend to our heroine and George Hu will round out the character playing a gentleman in New York. While other cast members already missed the food back home, George is reminiscing of his past childhood being raised in New York and all.
Hope your friday went well! My friday started with a morning cold splash. Lol. So this girl and her friend hopped on the bus and dropped one of their starbucks drinks….right on my thighs. I’m not one to draw attention to myself so I was busy wiping off the colorful splash on my scrubs until I noticed fingers pointing and raising voices around me. Apparently, the older community on the bus was livid the girl didn’t apologize and called them rude teenagers and all. The teen girl and her friend….cursed right back. O_O. Then the tension got real and the girls decided to hop off the bus and put up their fingers outside the window. Sigh. What great kids we have taking care of elderly us in the future. Parents, spend ample time teaching your kids!
Movie Animal World (动物世界) is based on a Japanese manga series about the art of gambling called Tobaku Mokushiroku Kaiji, aka Ultimate Survivor Kaiji written by Nobuyuki Fukumoto. The storyline reminds me of Liar Game! Any fans? Good? There will be a lot of local and international stars including possible big bad played by Michael Douglas.
With the drama section (Magnolia Awards) over with, here is the stars strutting it out for their upcoming movies! SO MANY. I’m drowning in pretty pics. The men are wicked awesome tonight. Usually they have on boring, routine stuff, but tonight, they shine more than the ladies, in my humble opinion. XD
First trailer is out and they aren’t cheap with explosions and fresh meat. Led by Zhu Ya Wen (as Zhou En Lai), Liu Ye (as Mao Zedong), Oho Ou (as Ye Ting), Ma Tian Yu (as Lin Biao), Liu Hao Ran (as Su Yu), and Ma Yi Li (as Xiang Jing Yu), The Founding Of An Army begins in 1927 at the beginning of the Nanchang uprising, known as the first major Kuomintang–Communist engagement.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I don’t think we need a reminder to appreciate our moms because such unconditional and selfless love can only stem from our parents. It always amazes how much my mom has accomplished so far despite being illiterate (she only recognizes her children’s names) and very poor for many years. She’s my star, my love, and my inspiration. Always and Forever.
A compilation of Chinese celebrities with their lovely mothers or some fans would say… their mother-in-laws (hehe)!
