• @bubbletea Thank you for your kind words! (You made me tear up.) Yes, the healing really takes time. I lost a few high school friends because after the incident they basically said I acted differently, and although that hurt as well, it was truly for the better (good riddance to people who do not support or understand you). It is truly crazy how one incident can change the course of your life. I grew up very shy with very low self esteem (lived near a lot of older Chinese women who would comment on my weight and looks even though I was never fat). So when that incident happened, I didn't even think the guy was targeting me. But that happened, and I went through ~6 months where I "wasn't myself," doing a lot of things the old me didn't do (hey, at least I didn't do drugs right lol jk), but along the way, I found my boyfriend. My first boyfriend and first love. It's been 5 years, and I'm sure he's the one. If none of this happened, I wouldn't have met him, so for that, I'm grateful. Thank you again, bubbletea :)
  • @lyu310 Wow!!, what a brave woman you are. Thank you for sharing your story with us. You did not say much personally, but what you wrote can only come from a victim. I have never been raped, but I have friends who have been, or have been harassed. I also work with patients who have been. After I do my bit, they are then turned over to psychiatrists, therapists and other professionals to try and begin the real healing. The physical healing oftentimes happens, but the mental, psychological and emotional scars never fully go away. With enough self will, love, and help, victims learn to cope but their lives are never the same. I hope you have a positive loving environment of people to embrace you. Again you are a brave woman. No matter what, it was not your fault, you are not to blame. You are an innocent , beautiful human being first and foremost.
  • @funnlim How is it a witch hunt when most of these abusers actually did assault/rape/harass/grope others?? Exactly, MANY are true, but you're going to downplay the importance of this movement because there are false accusations? That should NOT matter. There will always be false accusations whether there's a movement or not because there will always be bad seeds in the world. Like someone else has mentioned, these innocent people CAN SUE for defamation. If you have a strong support system and speak out about your innocence, you will be fine. The fact that most of these powerful men aren't defending themselves is because they are guilty. Whether someone files a police report or not, we still need to have this conversation. It is a brave and GOOD thing for victims to come out and share their story. I will say, I too am one, and hearing others' stories have been inspiring and also frightening. Now, I personally would not share mine, but that's a personal choice! These women let me know I wasn't alone. Nobody thinks about the guilt the victim feels over not defending him/herself, not stopping things from happening, freezing, etc. And then to have all this backlash when you share your story or even tell your friends?? And it's not always about naming the guy. The victim has a right to share HER story without the focus being on the abuser. Maybe she wants to share her story so that people can be more vigilant. Not the point! It infuriates me how people are saying, "oh, why are they waiting 20, 30 years to tell her story." IT DOES NOT MATTER!!!! It doesn't matter how much time has passed! It is HER story and she has the right to tell it. Can you unrape someone?!!? Can you wash away the trauma?? Can you pretend like it didn't happen, and that would in turn, make you braver?? Yea, don't think so. If you actually think about how much more conservative people/views were 20-30 years ago, you would understand why victims didn't come out to say anything. Look at how powerful Cosby was. So many women have accused him over the years and nothing happened until Hannibal Buress talked about him in his stand up?? It's crazy! And it took the New York Times article to out Weinstein when everyone knew he was a rapist and womanizer. All I'm saying is it's called a movement because things are finally happening. How? BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE SPEAKING OUT!!! And sharing your story is NOT easy.
  • @lyu310 cathy was definitely shopping for a rich man...and she is very lucky to get one. 4 kids and a father in law who adores her. as for timmy, i really don't see potential in him.
  • @janet72 Yep. I remember when they appeared on Lydia Shum aka Fei Fei's variety show one time. They didn't downright admit it but everyone knew they were together. Her mother disliked him though (I mean, he's not successful in any way, is a playboy - his "nickname" was "King of Toys" in Chinese). I think they both cheated at the time though. Kathy was dating around (pining for the rich man).
  • @lyu310 HAHA, Timmy is a celebrity, whether we like it or not. There are a lot of celebs who are famous for nothing. Does the Kartrashshians and Angelababy ring a bell?. And yes, Tim Tim does have fans, unfortunately.
  • @bubbletea HAHA speaking of fans, I would love to see who Timmy's fans are. That guy is only known in the business b/c of his father and all the women he dated (as well as his appearance on random variety shows).
  • @coralie Exactly. I've seen the photos and clip of him holding the girl's hand and walking. He was very firm and "dominant." He didn't look drunk or indecisive. And I also saw pics of them near his car (not sure what the timeline is. I think the article said they went to get something in his car but went back to the hotel?) yea OKAY Timmy keep lying. I doubt his wife trusts him. She's just turning a blind eye at this point. Once a player, always a player, huh.
  • @bubbletea Ooo can you share what you know about the family? I haven't heard anything about the family, but there's been sooo much news about these two, IDK how she can deal with the negativity, especially if she has a mental illness.
  • @m0m0 In my opinion, Crystal's not drop dead gorgeous, but still pretty, so I'm not surprised by the high number (especially because high school can be cliquey so the same group of guys can be pursuing one girl). There were girls in my high school who I'd say were a bit above average (less attractive than Crystal), and they had a lot of pursuers.
  • @lyu310 ic. Thanks. I only recognize her by watching tvb.
  • @mike @axe71 meant Michael had to wait 40 years for his first award
  • @cutie777 Looks like he's a theater actor named 梁子峰. Says they've been together since 2012. They registered their marriage August 2017. I actually have no idea who she is besides being Grace Chan's friend.
  • First off, who cares?? Let them live! Second, the HK/Asia reporters need to quit outing people. If they're not ready to come out, then they need to be left alone. The Asian media still has a stigma towards people in the LGBTQ community and that's something they need to work on.
  • @lyu310 hahaha,, your comment crack me up. If I child looks like the old HXM, I now know why he was so furious in not wanting the masses to see the child's face. We can change the way we look, but we can't mess with DNA. I know a couple who were not happy with how they looked, they actually think they are above their own ethnic race, so they bleached their skin. Let us just say they became the new Micheal Jackson. They had a twin boy and girl. Suffice it to say, the children are very dark. You can't change DNA, you can't mess with the genes.
  • @bubbletea Speaking of HXM's surgery, I'm dying b/c the chinese sources say his son looks like him before his operation bahahaha. Said he has "inner double" aka almost monolids/single eyelids. Savage. I mean, I understand you want privacy for your son, but of course the paps would take pics of him when he's exposed. At least the rest of China hasn't seen your kid, HXM. Take a chill pill.
  • @huynh Agreed! Before Myolie's group or Linda's group, there was the "Seven Sisters". These new ones (aka #3 to 5) are like...what the heck umm no one knows they're a thing. There's also one friendship group with Dodo Cheng (至八會): 汪明荃、郑裕玲、冯美基、张艾嘉、狄波拉、毛舜筠、林建明、顾纪筠、陈淑兰、曾华倩、朱慧珊以及江欣燕、外钟慧冰、施丽珍、寇鸿萍, etc.
  • @lyu310 I remember the Super Trio show! It lasted for awhile. @llwy12 The Yang's Saga is a classic! TVB put in work back then producing quality telemovies. Now...I don't even know.
  • @lyu310 Yea, I agree…I actually love all of the Telling Maria episodes so far except for the Ada and Moses one, which I actually didn’t watch (since I don’t really care for either artist or any of the series they collaborated in). I enjoyed the Eric/Lawrence/Nat episode as well and was nearly in tears when they started talking about Lydia Shum. I think the funniest episode so far was the FOJ one (Bobby/Michael/William) and the most profound one was Wayne/Sheren episode. If you haven’t watched the 3 Tigers one, definitely try to get to it soon – it was awesome! Most of the stuff they talked about I already knew from past interviews, but it was still a lot of fun seeing the 3 of them being interviewed together – especially Michael and Felix (a “bromance” that I’ve shipped since the 80s, lol), whom we don’t get much opportunity to see together nowadays on television (though thank goodness they still collaborate quite frequently in movies). They talked about their days in Acting Class, which was hilarious -- Kent always choosing to sit in the back so he could sleep and also study his horse racing guide, Felix getting in trouble with his teachers because he was courting his future wife at the time and got called out on it, both Felix and Michael arriving to class in short shorts due to having just finished a game of soccer and their teacher yelling at them for wearing stuff like that. Also all the memories of them fighting for “sleeping space” in the bathrooms and closets at TVB studios (back when the studio was located on Broadcast Drive in the 80s.... Bobby Au Yeung had actually talked about the same thing on his episode)…memories of filming The Bund together with Chow Yun Fat (Kent was already in a supporting role while both Michael and Felix were still newbies playing kelefes) and how scared they were because Fat Gor was already a huge star but also how much they learned from him. Also Felix recounting his time filming The Lonely Hunter (the series that first put his name on the map) with Dodo Cheng and how she threw his script away the first day and after that he never walked into the studio again without having his lines fully memorized. I also loved the part where they talked about all the other senior artists they had collaborated with (i.e. Kwan Hoi San, Tang Bik Wan, Wong Sun, all of whom left us many years ago, plus other seniors still active today such as Lau Dan, Chun Wong, Kenneth Tsang, etc) and all the things they learned from them and also how grateful they are to have had the chance to work with those artists because they wouldn’t be who they are today without them (so true…and therein lies the difference with why current generation of artists aren’t as successful – many of them don’t show the same appreciation and respect for the senior artists that the older generation did). It was funny when they made Felix recount the TVB series he had filmed and he only counted a handful because there were too many to remember, lol (he actually forgot to mention one of his most popular series, Solider of Fortune, until Kent reminded him, since that series was one of Kent's most representative works, lol). The most poignant moment of course was when they talked about Barbara Yung – their memories of her and their reactions to her death 32 years ago….Kent actually handled the questions pretty well considering he was the one most impacted. I miss the old days too (ok, technically I’ve been “missing the old days” for the past 20 years already, lol). Yea, I agree that it’s probably both nostalgia and the fact that the artists and the series were so much better back then – on a larger scale though, it was also because that time period (80s/early 90s) was truly the HK entertainment industry’s “glory days” where all disciplines (television, movies, music, etc.) were strong. Michael and Felix joked about how the 5 Tigers dominated TVB in the 1980s pretty much (which is true of course) but the industry was also different back then in that the attitude was better and everyone was more united. They talked a lot about filming The Yang’s Saga and being able to bring all of TVB’s artists together to participate in a series for a common cause, something that will never happen in today’s TVB world. As I said before, the current generation artists really should watch these interviews, as they can learn so much from hearing all these veterans recount their experiences.
  • @llwy12 Speaking of Telling Maria, I also recently discovered it and watched the first 4 episodes in one go! I loved them all, especially the episodes with the MCs Lawrence, Eric, Nat (I watched Ms HK and Super Trio growing up), Ada and Moses, and the File of Justice trio (lovedd the series). It really takes me back; I really miss the old days. Not sure if it has to do with nostalgia or just the fact that the actors and dramas were just better back then. Probably both. Loved the friends who commented on the guests, and the old clips they showed, particularly the part where Eric Tsang talked about Fei Fei (rip).
