新年快乐！ Since it’s Chinese New Year’s weekend and there are actually quite a few movies playing in the theatre near me, I decided to go see The Monkey King 3. I think this was the most people I’d seen in the theatre for a Chinese movie, attesting to the popularity of this story and the actors in it. It stars Feng Shaofeng (“The Starry Night, The Starry Sea”) and Zhao Liying (“Princess Agents”) and continues the story of the monk and his disciples traveling West.
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)!
The annual charity event hosted by Bazaar China is back! I both love and dislike these events. Lol. I don’t know how many pictures I scrolled through in the last three hours to compile the pictures! In general, the men look pretty good this batch but the ladies have quite a few misses in the fashion department.
At this rate, China is gonna remake all Korean Variety shows. Sigh.
Interesting new trend: Many actors are joining variety/reality shows in China right now. This is one of the few shows I will check out. It looks adorable from the teasers alone! Much like its Korean counterpart featuring Lee Seung Gi two years ago, Dragon TV is producing their own version. The older sisters (plus their age in parenthesis) include Lin Chi Ling (41), Lilian Wang (45), Fan Xu (48), and Mei Juan Xi (60). The younger cast members are Ma Tian Yu (29), Victoria Song (28), and Aarif Rahman (28). They will leave Shanghai and travel to Turkey, Italy and some other regions. First episode airs today.
