• @kuks Same as the UK. They already have a refugee crisis from war-torn countries in the Middle East, have few jobs available (due to refugees and garbage economy), lack of healthcare access (due to refugees, and lack of medical personnel) and they will be treated as second class citizens (due to refugees and a long-standing superiority complex among local rednecks that they are better than everybody else), but HK'ers will have their "free speech" to say anything they want. ;D If the UK and Australia do move forward and actually have the balls to hand out citizenships to HK'ers. It will get a whole lot worse for them as China will cut off economic ties making their current situation worse to unbearable. Their citizens will not be enthusiastic about taking in millions of refugees, already sharing the limited resources that they already have. Will HK'ers be actually better off moving to these countries? Time will tell. The grass isn't always greener on the other side.
  • @anon they'll be right in Australia. Might not be any jobs for them though.
  • @luye that doesn't leave much for her acting if her singing is better. A song of hers came on my Spotify and it hurt me so much I had to find out who it was and shut it down! I don't see Linda's appeal either. Probably is the young kiddies who like her because she exudes the 'perfect girl next door' vibe.
  • @orchid123 she was very good in supporting but I think she got handed rubbish roles when she became lead. Not to mention the overall quality of dramas were on the decline anyway.
  • @cutie777 they live in HK, cooking and cleaning can be outsourced to a helper for cheap... There are speciality cooking classes for helpers so they can learn to cook your favourite foods. Most things can be mitigated with money in HK...
  • @pompidur it's as if that's where people's life is played out, social media. It's time for everyone to step back...
  • @kuks They were, not sure if they're still friends now. I think Roxanne might have scrubbed her IG of anything involving Jacqueline after the scandal broke out. If you look at Jacqueline's IG, there is still a pic of her and Roxanne at a bday celebration.
  • @parisnights were they good friends? If you look at Roxanne's ig you can deduce her for friends to be Tracy Chu, Jennifer Shum, Samantha Ko, Angel Chiang, the Chong sisters and even Sisley and Vivian Yeo... Not so much JW
  • @wm2017 heaaaaps of Chinese in certain hotspots. You can still go to places with decent mix of people. @cutie777 not in the Sydney area but everywhere else around it. There predicting a deluge of rain over the weekend, hopefully that'll stop whatever fires left.
  • @hetieshou yeah, unprofessional on both fronts. Could've been handled better
  • @kuks Age may not necessarily be a determining factor, but experience definitely is. Unless the person is a natural born acting talent (which, let’s face it, very few people are), you learn acting through training (i.e. acting classes) and you hone it through experience (i.e. incorporating life’s ups and downs, learning from mistakes, etc.) as well as practice (i.e.: playing a variety of roles and continuing to develop your skills). The truly serious actors who see this as their passion and lifelong career may further expand those skills through even more extensive training (i.e. acting academy), but majority will at least have gone through the “experience” and “practice” stages. With Chow Kalok, I don’t think people are “hating” on him per se, but rather most are angry at the unfairness of TVB giving a newbie with no acting experience outside of 1 role in 1 series and who is still in the learning stage, an acting award – which, by definition, implies that his acting was “the best” out of all those nominated…if everyone else who was nominated were newbies at the same level as him (little to no experience, still learning, etc), then sure, him winning makes sense….but when every other nominee in the same category (I’m not just talking top 5, but EVERYONE who qualified for a nomination in Supporting Actor) has way more “experience” and “practice” than him and, more importantly, because of that experience and practice, were able to put in way more nuanced, polished performances than him, then it doesn’t make sense for TVB to say his acting is “better” than all of them (which, by virtue of giving him the “best supporting actor” award, is exactly what they are saying). And also, by giving the award to him, TVB is essentially eroding the credibility of the BSA award, which some of us are upset about because up to this point, that was the one award in the entire ceremony (outside of Lifetime Achievement) that was relatively untouched by TVB’s disjointed politics and still had a little bit of “fairness” associated with it (which it obviously doesn’t have any more). So yes, perhaps some of the “anger” is misguided in that people should be upset at TVB for once again making bonehead award decisions (which none of us should be surprised at this point) rather than at Chow Kalok who has no choice but to accept the award that is given to him (though that doesn’t change the fact that many of us felt he was undeserving). TVB probably should’ve given him Most Improved instead…but oh well….
  • @kuks Well said! I also thought that Chow Kalok was one of the most deserving wins of the night. As an avid follower of LAB, his acting has really improved over the years and quite honestly, he carries many of the scenes he is in - even when he's among veterans. Amazing comedic timing. He's young and inexperienced but he has the talent and works very hard. After enjoying his consistent performances on LAB, I began to notice him in other variety shows and performances. He's a darn good dancer too and puts a lot of effort into it! I also felt that he put most of the other award winners to shame because his acceptance speech was so good and he's so well-spoken for his age. He came off as very thankful for the opportunities he's been given, didn't stutter, and didn't try to force himself to cry.
  • @orchid123 age and experience should not discount you for an award. In the logic you have presented, a mediocre actor who has been in the industry for X amount of years should automatically be deserving.
  • @bennyjr I often wonder who her fans are. Young girls? Creepy 25+ aged men who are awkward around women? I had to tell Spotify to never play her songs after some of her songs came into my "radio" playlists. I had to find out what atrocious singer was being played. It was always her. Had to shut that down!
  • @chena to be fair, the Irish accent is difficult lol
  • @littlefish it was Sunday, maid not home yet after her day off
