• The biggest problem with the Asian culture: a girl is innocent or has a "jade girl" look but if she is caught living with her boyfriend or walking around in a bikini, she's now tarnished and no longer pure. NO ONE is pure but also NO ONE is a whore either. It's simply 2019. Get over yourselves!
  • @jesspepperwang oops haha. Yes, I meant Kelly the second runner up. And yes, Carmaney was definitely just steady throughout, nothing special. LOL I am not sure how #10 with measurements like 27" and 38" would have won. Her face is okay but her body proportions aren't enough to make up for winning a pageant.
  • @jesspepperwang I meant to say Katy Yeung is easy on the eyes, cute, and (the) tall(est), but not talented (weak ribbon dance) or witty enough. She even said her body figure doesn’t stand out. Kayan Choi to me is a solid contestant. She's on par with Fefe Tse #10.
  • @jesspepperwang "How do you take care of your ankles?" LOL.. was that actually one of the questions that were asked? I mean, I've always known these pageants to be a joke, but it's much worse than I'd thought. Not sure that there is even an 'intelligent' way to answer that... ask stupid questions, get stupid answers.
  • @bubbles23 #10 is Fefe BTW. Kelly Gu deserved second runner up if not more, but someone was mean with her hair. She's actually the most natural one Fei Wong is just hard to have as first runner up because she did so well in everything, but she was missing luck and that "spark." Carmaney Wong is what I would call a "shoe in" at this point. She does have the height and physique, but her answers weren't clever. She answered them well and as expected. A little boring in my humble opinion. How do you take care of your ankles? "I brush the dead skin and apply masks." If the contest wasn't based on looks, #10 would have been the winner. She has the height (she is as tall as Kayan) and talent (did you hear her sing?) but like she even said herself "big boned and not feminine enough." I find her elegant and damn, those straight white teeth. Kayan is easy on the eyes, cute, and (the) tall(est), but not talented or witty enough. She even said her body figure doesn't stand out.
  • Guys, the real problem is Au Man Man. She is straight up condoning wrong doings of a scum. The scum is only the start. I am so sorry for the girls he has hurt. Girls, love yourself. I don't believe anyone is a victim because you chose to be with him. At the end of the day, remember self-love. There's more to life. For this scum, it might be the end :)
  • At this point, is it even news if a celebrity had plastic surgery? I am not saying all celebrities have plastic surgery, but why is it so shocking to people? It's an industry based on looks. And why do people have to be so harsh? It's not like you were born 100% beautiful. Someone went to go get their looks changed because it will make them famous and they'll receive compliments. One is good for the wallet and the other is good for the ego. Put yourself in their shoes for a second, do they deserve all the bashing? No. Should they handle all the bashing if they are to enter the industry, yes. But that doesn't mean people can bash unreservedly! Live and let live!
  • @bearbear The reason behind staying with a cheating husband is because it's taboo to divorce in Chinese culture. The women decreases in value and the man is just a free bachelor again (with more experience) after a divorce. It's toxic even without the money or image. The money and image thing just makes it * than what it already is. Tradition can be so toxic.
  • @pocky Yup, both extremes that are not favorable. Well, in the US, you shoot when the suspect is black or any minority #shotsfired #punintended
  • @anon that's a very kind way of putting it. I feel like mainland has only one rule: "If you can get away with it, do it." If you don't have to stand in line and can just push your way to the front, then do it. If want to charge customers 5RMB for the tissues they are gonna use on your table even though they are paying patrons, then do it. I rather not use the word "lazy", but cops don't know better because they are not trained properly. You NEVER question authority and there's way too many people in China, so you just learn as you go and don't need to be told what to do or how to do something right....a very Asian mentality especially Chinese.
  • @yuaida So what about men in the entertainment industry? Let's be fair here that at the end of the day we are all people and let's also not be misogynistic or make asses out ourselves for assuming...
  • What Nancy usually goes for: mature, confident, creative, and talented. What Kenneth went for: flirty and young and social. What Kenneth is: risk-adverse and traditional to the point he still lives with his Mom. What Nancy is: independent. Guys, need I say more? This is not a match or a fit. Yes, they can act well but at this age, neither of them is gonna change much. Kenneth is simply looking for the wrong girls and Nancy just hasn't found the right one. I think Kenneth is in a situation slightly worse than Nancy, but because Nancy is a woman in Asian, poor thing cannot get a break. Fans who previously said "Jacqueline is giving Kenneth a little bit of color" really have to re-think it. Opposites attract, but they don't bond. Most importantly, people's values have to match. Kenneth has to take notes from Ruco. You gotta find yourself a younger girl who does NOT have a Western attitude. She has to look up to you and CANNOT be more successful or as successful as you! Nancy won TV Queen 2x Kenneth and she has been working since she was 16 because of her family's bankruptcy so although she is a great catch, she is NOT for you!
  • Old Kenneth plays a good doctor, but not necessarily a good partner. In the past, he told Natalie he didn't think of work as work so he couldn't understand why she was upset that he was willing to prioritize his "job" over her, his own then wife. Natalie made a great point that she is a doctor too and she still makes time for him or rather yet, them, as a married couple. Current day Natalie is wants to learn more about medical cases and how she can become better at her career than before (most likely due ex husband's influence) and is slowly learning more about old Kenneth and still cares for him, but the way current day Kenneth praised current day Natalie after she took out the bags of cocaine from a patient's stomach "Good job. I didn't used to think you would be capable" is a backhanded compliment in so many ways. We don't know about past Ali but we do know current day Ali is not afraid to stand her ground even if it means losing status or having people not like her. That's the distinguishing factor between her and new Natalie. Ali is ambitious whereas Natalie is simply a compassionate person who wants to help people. Natalie is too flawed because of how emotional she gets at work and how much she does for Tang Ming even though they are divorced. Ali, on the other hand, is too good to be true in a way if you think about it: beautiful, smart, educated, ambitious but not aggressive, righteous, will not fight for her best friend's man. She either dies or gets some sort of disease that requires Kenneth to operate on her, but she will not end up with Kenneth. If Kenneth ends up with her, Kenneth's character will never reach his arc. Kenneth's Tang Ming is someone who will become more considerate of others when it comes to romance, but he will not yield to the point where he has to become old Natalie to adjust to an old Tang Ming, who is current day Ali.
  • @jesspepperwang I pretty much wrote what you did and i agree. jeremy was the 'perfect fit' after philip because he fits all the most important criterias she needed -- ironically, to start a family and settle down. but had she looked a little longer and been more patient, she could've definitely had better candidates than jeremy. she probably knows, deep down, that she had settled...although not in terms of goals, but definitely in terms of qualifications.
  • @jesspepperwang Did they ever confirm that RL went after her? I thought all along the shippers just love shipping them and a rumor as they love their on screen presence in that Moonlight series? I never ship them or any on screen couple actually. She strikes me as someone who speaks good English as even thou she's good in cantonese she always mixes english w her replies to reporters so to me she sounds like she will be better w/her CBC counterparts as that's how she prefers. PN no doubt speaks fluently as well although he's probably nowhere financially stabled as this dude.
  • You learn a lot when you date someone for over 5 years and find out he's not the one. What COULD have happened with Linda is that she knew what not to look for again after Phillip, but didn't necessarily knew what she was looking for, perhaps not even Jeremy. Jeremy just happened to appear at the right time and was extremely different from Phillip. Given, that doesn't mean Linda doesn't love Jeremy. Like y'all said, she can do a lot better. Didn't Raymond Lam go after Linda? Ain't Raymond younger and wealthier and more handsome? Did she still reject Raymond, yes. Linda could have found herself a much wealthier sugar daddy in HK around Jeremy's age that didn't require her to do long distance. So I do think she loves the guy, but there's no way she doesn't know she has the upperhand in the looks department. Remember what Ali Lee said recently "I like a stable relationship. I don't have a lot of confidence in them so I rather not go challenge a handsome or wealthy man. I rather have a man waiting for me at home and gives me assurance." It's not settling when there's give and take. Ali knows she's more successful and better looking than her partner, but also needs a man who adapts to her schedule and her stubbornness. So, with Linda, the trade off might be......
