Infernal Affairs – 無間道 is the latest TVB Drama that I am watching online. I love watching dramas about the triad and the undercover cops in Hong Kong. What I like about Infernal Affairs is that it stars some of the former TVB actors and actresses who are my favorites. Gallen Lo, Him Law, Bernice Liu and Damian Lau.
A spin-off from the movies, this interesting drama has 36 episodes. Can’t wait to start my Hong Kong TVB Drama marathon. Watch Infernal Affairs 2018 TVB Drama onlinehere.
Tiger Mom Blues is another TVB Drama that I am currently watching. It stars some of my favorite actors and actresses. They are Elena Kong, Ben Wong & Michelle Yim. This drama captures the tempestuous relationship between a controlling matriarch & her resentful daughters. There are 20 episodes altogether.
I love watching dramas such as this that is based on the mother-daughter relationship. I hope to learn some of the lessons being taught in Tiger Mom Blues. Very interesting and heartfelt drama. Watch Tiger Mom Blues Olinehere.
I have watched the final episode of Heart and Greed 3 online. It was not the ending that I expected. Now I am missing the drama already. Have you watched Heart and Greed 3 Episode 40, the Final Episode? What do you think?
Just watched Heart and Greed 3 Episode 34 online last night. This episode is full of dramas (pun intended). Something major happened with the Hui Wong Group company. This has an effect on Belle’s relationship with Kyle. Really did not see that coming. Can’t wait to watch Heart and Greed 3 Episode 35.
I have been following the Heart and Greed 3 (溏心風暴3) TVB drama every day. I watch it because I love Moonlight Resonance (溏心風暴之家好月圓) and Heart of Greed (溏心風暴), a spin-off from Moonlight Resonance. Some of the casts from the previous 2 dramas are still around namely, Ha Yu, Susanna Kwan, Louise Lee and Bosco Wong. The storyline this time revolves around 2 families, one from a tea restaurant business and the other is from an elite printing business. The 2 families are rich and successful but they belong to 2 different classes. I personally find that the storyline is a bit boring. There is no chemistry between then younger actors and actresses.
However, I am still following this drama daily because I cannot wait to see what happens at the end. There are many conflicts between these 2 wealthy families and I hope there is happy ending just like the previous 2 dramas. I have watched up to Episode 30 already. There are 10 more to go.
On Saturday, my bestie and I went for a movie date to The Kid From The Big Apple 2 : Before We Forget. We made a pact to watch a tear-jerker together because we both wanted to have a good cry. Yes we are that crazy.
I felt a little upset that my favourite actress Jessica Hsuan was no longer playing Sarah’s (the granddaughter who is from New York) mom. She has been replaced by local actress, Debbie Goh who is a wonderful actress and portrayed her role as Sophia very well.
TKFTBA2 is about Grandpa (Ti Lung) facing dementia and he starts to lose his memory. The family is preparing their lives to cope with this disease and staying strong. There are many heartbreaking scenes that made us bawled. Old songs from the 80’s, made popular by Teresa Teng are also featured in this movie.
I remember one scene where Grandpa was not himself and kept looking for his dead wife. He was agitated and locked himself in the room. Sarah was scared and asked her mom what happened to grandpa and how can he become like this. Sophia told her that this is not the grandpa talking but the disease. It just shows how dementia can have a massive effect on a person as well as their families.
We should cherish our loved ones now.
Overall, I would say that I prefer The Kid From The Big Apple 1 compared to this.
So last Saturday, missy and hubs went to the movies to watch Thor Ragnarok. Since I am not a big fan eventhough I have heard how good looking Chris Hemsworth is, I bought ticket to watch Always Be With You, a Hong Kong movie. Yup, I watched it alone and actually I enjoy watching movies alone. Hubs and missy are not a fan of my kinda movies so I have been going to the cinema by myself. One of the reasons why I chose to watch this movie is because my favourite actors – Gordon Lam, Julian Cheung (Chilam) & Louis Koo.
Always Be With You is a horror movie and at certain scenes, I had to close my face with my hands for fear of seeing a ghost lunging at me. Also, there were less than 10 people in the cinema that day. This made it scarier. I like the storyline though it can be quite depressing with many suicide thoughts, and etc. There are also some funny scenes that made me laugh out loud.
So, are you interested to watch this movie? Give it a try and you may like it.
Every festive season, I can hardly wait for the ads that are released by companies like Petronas, TM, TNB, SP Setia and etc. I would search for the latest in youtube for days, waiting for their debut. This year, my favourites would have to be these 2 videos that are funny and touching. They both carry the same message – Togetherness.
We finally made our way to the theatre to watch the highly anticipated Beauty and The Beast last night after the big and unnecessary hoo-ha over some censorship.
It was a last minute decision to watch as we just got back from Ipoh 2 hours before for Qing Ming prayers. Since missy does not have school today (Monday) because of Qing Ming, this means she can wake up late. So I checked and made the bookings online around 5pm for the 9.40pm show (I love technology). We were looking forward to it as hubs and I watched the animated classic when we were still in Toronto. That was like ages ago. I remember that I loved it very much. Ashley said she wants to see Emma Watson who plays Beauty and also she wants to watch which part of the movie that the authorities think is unfit *rolls eyes*
My verdict? Well I am a tad disappointed to be honest. Perhaps I have a high expectation about this movie since I enjoyed the animated version so much. I find this movie very dull and almost fell asleep eventhough I had a big cup of cappuccino for dinner. I find that the 2 lead casts pretty awkward and there is not much chemistry. Also, there is too much emphasis on Gaston, his friend Le Fou and the living antiques. Anyway, this is only my opinion. It is still an enjoyable movie for the family.
So it is the school break this week but we didn’t plan to go anywhere as hubs and I have to work. As we didn’t have to sleep early and wake up early to prepare missy for school, we thought it would be great to catch a movie at night on a weekday. We went to Mid Valley on Monday night to watch The Kid From The Big Apple. I knew I had to watch this movie when I saw the trailer a few months ago. It is such a heartwarming movie about a bratty 11 year old girl from New York who had to move to Malaysia to stay with her conservative grandpa, played by the legendary Ti Lung. Her mother, played by Jessica Hsuan (one of my favourite actresses), had to return to China to work. Therefore, the girl, Sarah (Tan Qin Lin) has to learn to adapt to her life in a different country. I love how the film shows the beauty of a simple childhood, filled with friendships instead of just gadgets.
This movie was shot entirely in Malaysia, mostly at an apartment block in Yulek, Cheras. Now I want to go to Yulek to find this apartment *smile* I must say this humble and unassuming film is the best that I have watched so far. It made me laugh and cry throughout the show and I left the cinema with puffy eyes. It was so heart-tugging and definitely made my heart melt too. Ashley enjoyed it very much and so did my hubby who doesn’t understand Mandarin. Some of the scenes had me in stitches and I must applaud the kids who starred in this movie. They are so good.
The Kid From The Big Apple took home four awards in total for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Writing and Best Newcomers at the recent Macau International Movie Awards.
It is really a must-watch movie so hurry to the cinema now to catch it! Remember, don’t leave your seats after the show has ended. Watch the credits and you will get to see lots of extra scenes from the movie. #thekidfromthebigapple
