• He called her an innocent child? And then proposes in a childlike manner? It's infantilizing. It's not my preference, but congrats to them!
  • @potatochip I’m gonna wait and watch the show go see if they will do what I think they do lol. Since I can’t see wins the world now that it is banned forever xD
  • @littlefish But Roxanne is also much taller than JW, so there will still be a discrepancy with back scenes. And there shouldn't be that many, right? If it is due to this, MSC should have said so. Otherwise, she just sounds catty and harsh. No need to announce that RT needs to lose weight. It sounds like she only gave her the role out of pity.
  • @potatochip Roxanne is not fat...why would she need to lose 10 pounds? anyway, I can't see any potential in forensic heroes 4 since bobby is not in it.
  • @potatochip i Think it is to suit with JW’s frame? Since they only reshoot frames with JW’s face while reuse a lot of frames that is of her back? It is a cheaper way to reshoot, just like what FBB does with her wins the world drama.
  • @potatochip Makes me mad. Actors are always told to lose weight when they aren't actually fat. Why cant her character just be a bit chubby? (Not that she is) Humans come in all shapes and sizes.
  • Much prettier than Jacqueline, and I really liked her in Another Era as Pakho's girlfriend! I agree with @potatochip that Siu Ching sounds like a jerk... Hopefully she won't disappoint with her acting in FH4.
  • Really? I haven't seen much of her acting, but judging on the pictures above, how does she need to lose 10 lbs? Siu Ching sounds like a jerk.
  • @potatochip it must be this way, all things are already destined. etta needs to find her own way now and grow through her choosen path.
  • I don't recall seeing her act, but she is attractive in the pictures above. Funny how male action stars/stuntmen will have a chance to rise and become leading actors whereas someone like her doesn't even get a chance to try. She might be a terrible actress, but can't be that much worse than the HK pageant actresses.
  • There are no miracle cures. It's deceitful and dangerous.
  • Elaine is so harsh. Love between a parent and child should be unconditional. It sounds like she has always been disappointed - likely expressed when Etta was a child. Self-fulfilling prophecy.
  • Unfortunately, Asian culture has trained women to expect little of their partners. He does not need to be complimented for wanting to change diapers or feed the baby. That's his responsibility. Phoebe seems Westernized, but she is actually more traditional in how she approaches their relationship and this pregnancy. On the contrary, Ruco is more progressive. He defers to her mostly - the baby shower, whether if she wants to keep working, Quinta's name, and whether to have more kids. I appreciate that he treats her as an equal partner and does not dictate the decisions or minimizes her feelings. He shows his love for her which may seem OTT, but I think that's because Asian men are generally reserved in their feelings. Also, it's very cute how he describes his naivete about the whole experience. Quinta is going to have him wrapped around her little fingers. It does not bother me that they praise each other or talk about hired helpers. Other celebrities do that. It's not how non-celebrities talk, but they are in a different world.
  • That's cute. Always good to see fathers take an active role in parenting. He's a supportive partner, Linda is lucky.
  • @potatochip I see, yes, when there is a loving mother involved, it’s hard to do against her will. But yikes! 2 months of not leaving the house, I would go insane, child or not lol. I can’t say much about Vietnam, which is where I’m from, because many has to work, and go to the market to get food and prepare meals, and the traditional line of thinking is the wife do all the chores for the family (again, second hand knowledge as I don’t marry into one as my Aunty suggested I should never lol), I don’t think there is much confinement? Maybe for the first few weeks? The child will definitely be confined, but not the mother. My HK friend in Australia was adamant to not bring her bub outside the house until the first immunisation, but for second one, she sticks to parks, and steer clear from heavy crowded place until first immunisation. Me? I just take my little one out, but I don’t let strangers come close or touch him, lol. Until his first immunisation :)
  • @potatochip You honestly should be grateful to have your mother still around and able to help you. Many do not have that anymore.
  • @potatochip like I said the way she said was a cause and effect thing, when scientifically they are not really that. Nutritious diet or not doesn’t really affect your supply. It’s increasing your supply a bit, but would not make one go from zero to having an oversupply. The statement might not intended to be arrogant sounding, but it does. I didnt say c-section or mastitis is a foul term, you said she doesn’t need to explain why she has c-section, and I said she can still say I have c-section because of the doctor’s advice, it is still protect her privacy, while making sure the readers know c-section isn’t a first choice (while she did not have any need to explain herself, she’s a public figure, just like how JW doesn’t need to apologise to anyone, but she must). Same with her mastitis, she can just say I have an oversupply, and therefore have mastitis (which is a very true statement). Whereas how she said isn’t 100% true. Anyway, you take her side, I frown on the statement as I think she might be a bit clueless arrogant.
  • That's very sweet. Having a child changes you. I thought I knew unconditional love, but once I had my kids, it's a whole new world. I was more rigid in my thinking before, but that changed.
  • @littlefish Each family probably does things differently, but for my first one, my mother made me stay home for 2 months. She wouldn't even let me leave the bedroom. She wanted me to just lay there and rest. And roll a hot glass bottle of water on my abdomen to shrink my tummy. And no shower. The list of foods I couldn't eat after giving birth was longer than when I was pregnant. It was torture. I am very science based, and all this stuff was tradition and seemed like voodoo. But my mother is amazing. She cooked and helped me take care of the baby. She would lovingly stare at her first grandchild and I loved every moment of it. So I obeyed her as much as I could stand it. (I definitely showered, no way was I listening to that. Lol.) For my other kids, I was more rebellious. And it felt so much better.
  • @littlefish I find her statements very harmless and actually quite mundane, like something any new mother would say. Nothing strikes me as particularly offensive, so I am not sure why they annoy you so much. A nutritious diet doesn't have to be expensive. My mom had me eat pigs feet, chives, taro, and some vegetables to increase breast milk (I don't know if they are scientifically proven, but it is our family tradition). The most "pricey" thing she made for me is black chicken and herbs. If a mother who couldn't breastfeed were to see what Phoebe said, I would think she would find a ally. Phoebe basically confirmed that even if you do everything "right" or as instructed, you can still have breastfeeding challenges and that it is alright to not breastfeed. She also said she needed help and that is reassuring to other mothers to not feel bad about needing help. As for no one shaming her, maybe not directly to her face. But society shame women for everything. Mothers are shamed for not breastfeeding, for not giving formula, for having skinny babies, for having fat babies, for breastfeeding in public, for breastfeeding too short, for breastfeeding too long, for going back to work too soon, for staying home too long, for letting babies cry in public, for yelling at babies so they don't cry in public, for paying too much attention to their children, for not paying enough attention to their children... On and on... Unless Phoebe is a recluse, she must be aware of the unrealistic and conflicting expectations people have about mothers. If she gushed about her baby, people will say she is bragging. If she complains, people say she is self-centered. If doesn't breastfeed, people will say she is lazy. Therefore, in order to relieve these pressures, she feels forced to explain her circumstances. And so she confides she had a C-section and mastitis. They aren't foul terms, so I don't see why she can't say she had a C-section. No need to hide any of this. And she never implied other mothers are failing if they don't do what she did. Quite the contrary.
