• This synopsis sounds so draggy and boring, lol. I like Alice, but idk how much of her screamings I can take. Lol. At least she's a solid actress though. I stopped watching Steven in his past few series. He can act but I find him boring, maybe it's the characters -which all had been one note; not his fault. Scripts are to blame...
  • Omg, the 3 main leads faces look so much like one another. Same surgeon again? Lol. You can literally switch their outfits and hairstyles and they can take on one another's character identity; can probably pass of as one another in real life too... Kathy Chow looks so much younger and prettier in this still than her recent TVB series. Good on the make up department! The series will be pass for me. I find Wuji character dumb AF. He literally forgot his mom's warnings and how/who caused his parents demise. My least favorite WJ "hero." I do like other premises and supporting characters though.
  • @jjwong seriuously pre-me is no joke. they'd probably blame it again on the age of the parents..... you're right, east asian people only think about having boys all they long. some women only live to bare a son and do everything to make sure their sons bare a son.... how sad.
  • @jjwong Survival of the fittest though not necessary biggest and fiercest. Hilarious vid. https://youtu.be/XJFDz5DcxLk
  • @jjwong statistics do not equal causation, but it does provide a pattern and a trend in which we can somewhat predict the results. if not for statistics, we wouldn't be able to analyze and forecast a lot of information that we have now. of course, it's not 100% accurate, but what is? 2/3rd of children born to parents older than 40 is a higher statistical score than say 40/50 or 50/50 chance. From this we can assume some things, but not entirely all.
  • @jjwong Yea, also good to hear that she is not spoiled – if she were, then they need to keep her in Mainland and not send her over here to the U.S. Taiwan’s Sun Peng and Di Ying could probably learn a lesson or two from Yang Zi and Eva Huang – at minimum, they can learn not to send a spoiled, gun-worshipping brat with a history of erratic behavior over here to the U.S. and then when he threatens to shoot up his school, ignorantly claim that he didn’t know joking about school shootings (a week after Parkland) was inappropriate. As long as Yang Zi’s daughter reads up on the U.S. before she comes here and doesn’t cause trouble for us (oh and definitely DON’T stockpile weapons!), then she is welcome to study here, lol.
  • Baby's sez is all about those X or Y sperms, aka the swimmers. It all depends who survives the trip and who is the fastest to cross the finish line, aka the egg. All pretty random. Nothing to do with time of the month, moon cycle, sez position, who does more work, etc. All random. There are many studies, however, claimed certain food favors/enhances X or Y swimmers; guys' stress level effect the little swimmers; do it closer to ovulation for boys; etc. There are as many claims and studies debunk those studies and claims. Lol. All in all, all random. I don't see what age has anything to do with baby's sez. Correlation doesn't equate to cause and effect. It does effect the chance of conceiving though. Women only have limited eggs count after all. Sometimes, the egg might just dis like the swimmer (can be X or Y) so no baby; the egg isn't necessarily hate X or Y so when neither one wins, egg is say gtfo I'll way for the other Y or X swimmer, lol. Funny that easterners are more likely to worry about the baby's sez while westerners are more inclined to believe in superstitious ways to just conceive a child. Anyways, pre-me is no joke. Hope both mom and child are healthy. I wonder if there'll be "news" that speculate (but will write like it is truth) this is not Leon's biological kid now. Isn't back in the days "seven stars kid" caused suspicion for affair? Also, the leaker may possibly be a hospital staff too, no?
  • I watched the game. It was cute. Grace was annoying though. She tried so hard to sound smart. I watched the series. Thought it was bare-able. The script and pace were different and new; obviously because it came from a fan. There were some nuances that didn't need to be in but had to be in because it's TVB afterall. If they do a 2nd series, I hope they don't eff it up lol.
  • @jimmyszeto Agree! His theme songs are one note. His vocal isn't anything out of this world. He's barely mediocre. He was luck that one judge (forgot his name) saw some potential and praised him. Gave him an opportunity to be guest star at his concert and then took him as pupil. Yet Fred has been stagnant ever since... He just simply doesn't have charisma or star power. His life choice / judgement has been bad... On article related note, Carlos is refreshing indeed. Is the way he speak in the series is how he usually speak? Or is he just doing that for his role? Isn't he staring young Justice Bao? Ugh, with Grace Chan right?
  • I don't understand rule #3... Glad she isn't spoiled. Hope she continues this way. The environment will have great influence and impact as she continues to mature. Sometimes your friends are the one to make you or break you. At least her parents are active in her life
  • I too prefer these type of pregnancy/family portrait. It's classy yet still sexy. I'll be accused "old fashioned or prune or whatever ," but half naked photo shoot of pregnant mommy to be is still creepy af to me xD
  • @llwy12 Hrm. So at one point, I remember seeing him in lots of that type of role. His subsequent roles were not a "breakthrough" again so I guess I don't see him as critically success. He stayed kelele :( I know what you mean though. Typical TVB and HK media. Sillies.
  • @smurf Exactly. The point is there'll be a struggle and discomfort for 99% people who just start reading. Things will click. For Westerners, it'll take a longer time to learn the pin yin yes; but if you're really invest and like the book, you'll learn. So these translated names to English is ridiculous; unless it's common sense / straight translation like Jade Emperor instead of Yuc Wong Dai Day. Thanks for the links, mate.
  • @jjwong I don't agree with the similar name argument. In Song of Fire and Ice series (Game of Thrones) there are no less than 15 different Bran/Brandons, Roberts, etc. People take time to learn them.

  • @jjwong In a way, the critical success thing is true in Dickson’s case, as that rapist role was more well-known than all of his roles at TVB combined. There was quite a bit of buzz back then over Dickson’s portrayal (mostly because it was so convincing) and many later audiences (those who may not have seen him in TVB series from the late 80s/early 90s when he actually had more significant and better developed roles) only knew him by that role. TVB also started typecasting him in those types of roles after that. I remember Dickson saying in an interview a few years back that nowadays whenever someone has a breakthrough role as a rapist, the media always calls him up to ask his reaction (yup, that’s the silly HK media for you).
  • Side note: anyone knows of there's audio-books to these novels? Canto-version? Or maybe there's fan site that have done it. I honestly would support kickstarter or something sinilar to get a good audio-books or English translated transcript to all these xD It seems like that Wuxia Society fan page has been stagnant :(
  • @smurf OMG. Thanks for sharing!!! I took a quick read on Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils. It's great!!! Only sad thing is it's only 1 chapter thus far. So many option now, IDK which one to read next lol.
