• @iciel The articles out today are saying that TVB cut Jacqueline’s CHL song because netizens complained and threatened to boycott the show. TVB could very well have been already intending to do it but netizens got to it first? Either way, Jacqueline is definitely done for...
  • @iciel Some clever editing will save FH4 or refilm those scenes. Or just release it. I won;t avoid FH4 because of her.
  • @funnlim I agreed. Jacqueline's career is definitely over. She's too much of a nobody to bounce back from something like this. Funny thing I noticed when watching Come Home Love today, even the theme song that was sung by her was removed and replaced with a piano melody. Even though TVB said that they're giving Jacqueline sometimes to rest, TVB is not known for being so nice. I think they're scraping everything that she was in to do some damage control. Forensic Heros 4 is definitely a goner, which is such a shame because it's Selena Li's last series with TVB
  • Kenneth's answers to the reporters were very calm and classy, but the forced laughter breaks my heart. Hang in there Kenneth!
  • Sisley's facial expression has improved a lot since her "Young Charioteers" days (still cringing when I remember it). And she can definitely control her tone and volume better. However, if she can only find a way to control the way her mouth moves. Like Vivien Yeo, they both have slightly protruded teeth and a big mouth so it's quite distracting to see them move so exaggeratedly. Though I gotta admit that Sisley looks very beautiful in this series, the hair and make-up really suit her.
  • @iciel hahaha, I had the same experience. However in our case, it was me bathing with my cousins (I’m a lone child and my cousin was a brother and a sister). I was the oldest, then my cousin who is 1 Year younger, and his sister who is 2 yrs younger than him. We would always have fun and up to absolutely no good thing whenever we were put in my maternal grandmother’s house (they always ignored us). So after a fun bathing session, my grandmother pulled me aside and said I need to stop bathing with them as my cousin asked her why my body is a bit weird (I just started puberty) - at least that’s what my grandmother told me, whether he did ask it or not, idk. And that made me feel ashamed, and drove a wedge in between me and my cousins. We are still good in speaking term, and remembered and talked about our fun childhood (with the girl cousin, I barely talked to the boy cousin lol), but my cousin’s question, though valid, her concern and way of dealing with it, kill the innocence of my childhood. I started to feel like I can’t be carefree when I was still less than 10 (I don’t remember how old I was exactly). Anyway, I totally get you :)
  • @iciel were you and your sister going through puberty at 6th grade? it does give a shameful feeling when others make it known that your behavior is gross. i think that contributes a lot to alienation. but, if you didn't know better, you would've been fine. kids don't think about that stuff when young. they just see everything as harmless. a few yrs ago, my older guy cousins and i went on a cross-country trip. one of my cousin's parents flipped out on my parents saying that they need to keep an eye on us, because if they don't, it can lead us to incestuous behavior. first of all, that thought has never crossed my mind. secondly. when they brought that up, it really grossed me out. ever since then, i stay away from that cousin. just don't need that kind of thought process in my life. *off-topic: these days i try to stay as far away from my relatives as possible. my parents think i'm being disrespectful since i don't try interacting with them and display hostility with all of them. but i rather they know i don't like them than fake niceties and act cordial. this way they bother me less. hopefully when i do this for another decade, they know better than to try interacting with me.
  • @iciel Sorry, which country are you from and what was the culture?
  • @jimmyszeto lol I'm not saying that not bathing together has made our relationship worse. It's just that we used to be really comfortable around each other and shared everything; it was our culture. But someone from a different culture find it weird and comment rudely on it and that just makes us feel like we're different and and as kids that's really damaging. We just never could go back to how close we were before because of that experience and eventually we become distant. I really like Wayne Lai's reply - our culture is different so we really shouldn't judge everyone else with the same standard.
  • @iciel I don’t think we can base relationship strength all on bathing together...
  • This reminds me of when I used to bath with my sister. We always bathe together until I was in 6th grade. When I moved to the US, our cousin was disgusted that we were bathing together and for some reason that created a wedge between us. We never bathe together again and our relationship is never as good as before. If they're comfortable with what they're doing and it's not hurting anyone we shouldn't really judge.
  • @forgetful Did you watch A Dream Named Desire II? She plays Anita Mui in that series. They changed the names but the characters were definitely based on Anita, Andy, Tony, Maggie and Sandra.
  • @wm2017 I think he acted in the West Side Story musical as Baby John and adopted that as his stage name. But it does make people remember him better lol. I hated Bet Hur and didn't really watch it but recognized his name right away.
  • I honestly thought it how their relationship started was quite cringy lol. Mandy was in love with Jack for the longest time, drafted all these scenarios and "hired" him to act them out with her. Whenever she gets into the "siu Lin" act I get goosebumps, it was so cheesy and cringy. But the more recent episodes where they explored their differences in status, their different personalities and priorities are much more interesting and real.
  • Well it's always nice to see Charlene tackle a new role. She was surprisingly great in Sara.
  • @iciel more competition, ease of piracy access, and bad old school cheap management. Everywhere Else improve while tvb decline.big china collab budgets, but very terrible rehash safe script. Tvb award is always a biological game and joke. Even the actors know its unfair, but just play along chessily to please the naive viewers. I don't think winning award grant huge outside DVD gig beside a few event and commercial for a few months. Some actors and actresses are handsome and former pageant top 10 end up wasting their lives waiting on set everyday to speak a few lines and get typecast as prosititute or gambling drug addict woman abusing jerk. It's a cruel dream. Not everyone can earn favor in the first year or have a rich family to let them live in mansions instead of crappy 300 square feet apartments . Some of them are in it for girls, but same could be said for girls joining in consent hoping to marry some rich old or young guy to support their family or materialism. It's easier to get bigger roles nowadays that everyone is leaving, so there's more space and spots to take. Back then s4 and a few other siusang fadan occupy the leading spot meanwhile the current leads are stuck at second tier. Tvb are very fixated in typecast, clique, and class styles that is ridiculous. Once a kelefe, you'll always be in audience mind because of the roles they typecast you in. Some need to take side jobs and invest in stocks to survive.
  • @iciel The nominations this year are a joke….but then again, it’s been that way for awhile already so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. The TV Queen category especially has been weak for years…for me, the last deserving winner was Sheren Tang back in 2009 and 2010….it went downhill after that with barely any decent nominees, let alone actual winners.
  • I was watching some old TVB award ceremonies in the 90s and early 2000s... they had top 15, top 10... and all of them were deserving. Now they can't even find enough competent actors to squeeze in the top 5 slot. I miss the old TVB.
  • @cutie777 actually if you use dry shampoo in between, eventually your scalp will stop producing so much oil. My hair used to get oily after 1 day of not washing and that's because I wash it everyday. Then after my friend advised me of not washing it so often I used dry shampoo in between washes and was able to extend it to 4-5 days before my hair starts to look oily. Admittedly it was very itchy in the beginning but eventually your scalp gets used to it. Also they might be spokespersons for shampoo companies so they can't just cut it short. At least I think Priscilla Wong is.
  • You should only lend money that is your own and be prepared to never get it back. So many men live by the words "yi hei" and end up causing misery to their family. My uncle was the same. He was so rich; but became a guarantor for a friend who betrayed him and ended up going bankrupt. The people who suffered are his family, who are innocent in this situation. I don't get why they can't put their families before their friends.
