I have been busy every night being glued to my Ipad. That’s because I am watching the new Flying Tiger TVB Drama 2018 online. I love watching crime dramas from Hong Kong and especially so when my favourite actors and actresses are in it.
This drama is about The Special Duties Unit, nicknamed Flying Tiger, facing a number of serious crimes in Hong Kong and across the border. The police force is fighting dangerous criminals, and at the same time, integrating the relationship dynamic between two brothers in the police force. It stars Michael Miu as the superintendent of the major crimes division and Bosco Wong and Ron Ng as half-brothers who share the same father. Bosco Wong is the older brother and a member of Flying Tiger. Ron Ng is the younger brother who works in the major crimes division. In real life, Ron is older then Bosco by one year. Also in Flying Tiger are Michael Wong, Eddie Cheung Siu Fai, Hugo Ng and a host of other actresses who were popular in the 80’s and 90’s.
I also love the Flying Tiger theme song which is performed by Raymond Lam and MC Jin.
I managed to catch this documentary or movie – The Magic Pill online last night on youtube. It is worth the watch. The Magic Pill follows the story of a young girl with autism, a few women with diabetes, asthma and breast cancer. They all have positive results and massive improvements when on keto/low carb way of eating. Combating illness through a paradigm shift in eating.
The Youtube version has since been removed and I found another source where you can watch it online if you do not have Netflix. Check it out here.
Another movie that is worth the watch is First Do Harm, a 1997 American made for television drama film directed by Jim Abrahams. The story is about a boy whose severe epilepsy, unresponsive to medications with terrible side effects, is controlled by the ketogenic diet. Aspects of the story mirror Abrahams’ own experience with his son Charlie. It stars Meryl Streep Fred Ward and Seth Adkins. A very intense and emotional movie.
The 37th Hong Kong Film Awards took place on Sunday, 15th April 2018. This star-studded affair is like the Oscars for Hong Kong. It was held at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and attended by many local celebrities. This glitzy awards ceremony gives recognition to achievements in filmmaking.
I am so happy to know that my favorite actor, Louis Koo has won the Best Actor award for his portrayal of a determined father who went in search of his missing 16-year-old daughter in Pattaya, Thailand. I just watched Paradox over the weekend and Louis was just amazing in that movie. He is such a good actor and he gets better and better.
Louis Koo with his award, together with Teresa Mo who won the Best Actress award for her role in Tomorrow Is Another Day. I can’t wait to watch this movie too.
Here is a snippet of the 37th Hong Kong Film Awards Ceremony.
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 are 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 Onlinehere.
Stress caused by bad relationships is bad for health. Try to work things out by talking it out. Please see this article for more information.
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.
