• @hetieshou Except we don't live in a monarchy anymore so there are no kings or queens. Alvin is a sociopath and narcissistic asshole by today's standards... She took trash back and that's okay because love is not logical. She's shiny on the outside but toxic on the inside. He's toxic on the outside and inside. There is overlap...OUCH. I am harsh #sorrynotsorry
  • @jesspepperwang The choice of word may be controversial but then again, it might not be too far from the truth either.
  • @jesspepperwang totally agree. in fact the line 'Carina’s obedience and quick assimilation into Raymond’s family' is very mean and tactless. how would Carina's family feel if they read such things?
  • @jesspepperwang Yup, not to mention if he wants kids he gotta marry a younger woman? If he dates his own age, how likely can he pop those kids out? It's reality. haha lol.... Very observant on the HK/K and mainland/C. One is way too young as I always say not everyone is like Jay Chou's wife who wanted to pop out kids b4 25. HK/K didn't seem ready to be a wife for one as she always stressed to reporters she was still very young which she was and she didn't sound overly expressive either unlike Raymond Lam when they were being asked about their dating life. She seemed the more matured one to me even thou she was much younger than RL at the time. I can't say she's 100% gold-digging either not saying she's not materialistic thou but if she's purely gold digging probably wouldn't mind being his wife before this one. Pretty sure she had her chance given she spent 5 years w/the dude. I personally think HK/K is prettier even thou she's skinny as heck. This one I don't find her attractive at all. lol
  • I personally think any Mainland girl who is significantly younger than Raymond would have worked given his vulnerability and neediness after his breakup with a teenager, whom he dated for 5 years. HK Karena is outspoken/Westernized, likes to go out to eat/luxury labels, and is not the stay-at-home type. I absolutely don't think she's a gold digger, but just not the right girl to wife up for Raymond. Raymond has been raised by an alpha Chinese mainlander father who is extremely wealthy, so a more simple-minded/obedient mainlander girl will be a much better fit. Raymond is 40 and he's dating girls 10 years his junior so that should be telling of his maturity level and needy nature....
  • "With Raymond finally getting married, the couple’s quick progress was in part due to Carina’s obedience and quick assimilation into Raymond’s family." Obedience? Is she a dog?
  • I am not sure there's a "perfect" time to get married. I am not even sure there's a "right" time, but there's definitely a wrong time. Wrong time examples include right after breaking up with somebody else and shortly after meeting someone new and those are not mutually exclusive. Also, you probably shouldn't get married if you don't have a stable job yet. Not a fancy job or anything like that. By the sounds of it, Mandy has had time to get to know her partner and has a stable job, so probably she's just really comfortable with status quo. It's only a red flag if you dated for over 2 years and you are already past your 30s and you have no consensus.
  • 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.
