美女厨房

Recently, I’m addicted to 美女厨房, a HK variety show. It’s so damn funny! The show is hosted by Ronald Cheng, Edmond Leong and Alex fong. They invite pretty female stars to cook and male stars to taste their cooking. Most of them dont cook very well so it’s very interesting to see how they corked up in the kitchen as well as seeing how the guys can finish up their food and give ratings.

美女厨房-第12集 was particularly funny, with Anita Yuen, Yoyo Meng, Zhang Jia Hui and Huang Qiu Sheng. If you like them then can search for other episodes. They’re in Cantonese but subtitles are given. Enjoy~ =)

(P/S I’m super excited with my new house, hopefully can shift in ASAP!)

1st fengshui audit

Master Chang has finally finished auditing our house’s fengshui. I’m already mentally prepared for whatever he’s gonna say as well as financially prepared they are going to be minor changes in the house. I think that’s inevitable, considering the bad shape of my house, a.k.a, mirrors everywhere.

What I wasnt prepared was the verdict which was given by Master Chang, that I’m not suitable to reside in my current room, AT ALL. He advised me to change room.

The corner room? No.

The master room??!! No.

The living room???!!!

You got it.

You cant imagine the shock on my face. I had that expression way back when mum proposed the same thing. After Master Chang said that, mummy then confided that she can sensed that I always fall sick and she feel the living room will be better for me. Of course I shrugged it off, saying it’s ridiculous to take living room as a room, especially when our living room is pretty big(in my standards). And then, she proposed her master bedroom to trade with my tiny little room. Of course I shaked my head violently.

How can I usurp the master room from my mother? How can I? I refused, up till now. When Master Chang, in one way or other, confided that I ought to shift out from my room asap. How would you describe this, when he had actually left my house after calculating an auspicious day in Jul for me to AN my new bed cum shift, and then suddenly U-turn back to tell me, “I think you better sleep in the living room than your current room, until the new bed frame comes.’

Hmmm..

Is it really thattttt bad?

Well, I mean I got lots of “encounter” in that room before but that’s many years ago. I shant describe too much but let’s just say…….it’s okie now lah…and I’m pretty used to the dimness of my room. Lights had to be on all the time if I’m awake. This is 1 big taboo of rooms, basic knowledge; rooms MUST be bright.

In short, he mentioned that even the aircon location is not good. *mouth agape* I was thinking even if I want to shift the aircon is also not easy manz. But that was like BEFORE he encouraged me to shift into the living room. He mentioned my current room is not suitable for humans to sleep, especially women because it’s very “yin”. For guys, not that bad, but cannot on the aircon. It’s not good for health. The bad location for aircon only remains till 14th Feb 2010. Valentines day? I didnt ask much, perhaps it’s the calculation of the “new year” bah.

Anyway for such a MAJOR operation, I consulted dearie, brothers and of course my dear mother. I’m actually quite half-hearted about it. In a way, I believe what he said. But in another way, IT’S ALOT OF HASSLE LEH! Xiang was not around. Wei was dubious about transforming the living room into a bedroom though he said he was fine with any arrangements. While mum……..

I can describe her as “raising both hands in agreement”.

(=_=)””

And off her goes…”theereeee I told you long ago to make the living room as your temporary bedroom for the wedding liao before you all shift. It’s big, spacious and bright bla bla bla.”

I was very appreciative of that. While I was reluctant to do the shift, saying we’re only staying till the end of this year, Master Chang said, this year is not to be trifled with, especially health wise. Coincidentally…this was what I heard from another fengshui advocate in a forum. Seeing how H1N1 has turned for the worse…I had little choice but to believe. Even if all this hoohaa is only for the duration of half a year. After which, everything will resume back to normal.

So I began preparing for the mega shift. Although it doesnt include all the stuff, there were a mountain of stuff to shift…especially my big ass wardrobe, bed etc. Chang will be arranging a date for us to AN our new bed. Besides that, I got to mask all the mirrors in the living room and the mirrors of my wardrobe. Woah! Which is not easy lor. I’m never good with lines and scissors and god damn, it’s so difficult to get a straight rectangle Huh!?

New curtains too, $69. Plus all the masking, double-sided tape, etc, I think we spent less than a hundred. Hmm…still sounds like a lot especially when the audit costs $485. However, our new house will costs much cheaper, $359 as it’s the second house. Well hopefully, the audit does serves some positive changes. Then we will continue the second audit which wont come so soon. Oh my god…I just remembered he said we need to shift the altar position too. But he will give us the date later. Dont know how much that minor shift gonna costs us again.

Shall review after 3 months if my health and other areas improves. =P

Yesterday(tues), we finally shifted all our stuff. I cant remember the last time I worked so hard and so much on manual labour. It resulted in serious muscular cramps in both arms and legs. *wails* They’re really painful. With every step I took, even my poor car-cheng also tremble in pain. *boowoo* I was supposed to rest at home but Rain asked about the fixed deposit product which I mentioned to her. Since dearie going Bt panjang for work, I decided to call Rain and see if she wanna meet since dearie can chauffeur me. At least it’s not so painful to walk that much a distance.

Who knows rain started to tell me excitedly about a lobang which got us both so excited and cheong down to Orchard. We totally forgot about the business portion till she fetched me back home. The lobang was about a x0% off G****’s bags lah. I know this news will make all G’s fans crazy and in order not to be bomb by all friends, relatives, colleagues, I’ve decided to be discreet for her convenience and also her friend’s safety.

Anyway in the end, I didnt see anything I like in the boutique and I’m told they dont do custom orders. Okie lor…actually I like the pink guccissima leather series, but they’re out of stock because they’re on a 30% sale. &^%$#@#$%^

Rain saw 2 which she liked though and she’s probably going to buy them. First time I sat in her car. When she cruised into the roundabout in her flashy red Honda, I simply burst out laughing. Because her 2 spotlights(ahem no pun intended), I mean, her 2 HAZARD lights were blinking like the Christmas lights, attracting all the attention. Damn funny lah! Then I told her she most probably to forgot to turn it off. Haha.

All in all she’s a competent driver, considering she got her license not long. And I learnt something new from her. That is engaging the N(neutral) gear during braking or winding down a slope can actually save petrol costs. I can actually tell that to dearie but most probably he wont and cant get used to changing different gears lah. That will probably increase the risk of us getting into accidents. =P

Dearie said after being with me, he has became more superstitious, thanks to me. What lah…I’m just…careful.

=P

Dear Phy and bf is coming to my wedding! So happy. =) Initially thought she ignored me in facebook, so sad. =( But it was an untimely misunderstanding. I actually thought her bf look abit like JJ’s brother…hmmm….whose brother has the same name! Well well, the truth will be out soon. Hee. Singapore so small.

Just finished watching “Rosy Business”, hongkong tvb drama. At first I was pretty skeptical of the weak cast(to me lah). I’m simply toooo used to the huge strong cast after “Gem of Life”, “moonlight resonance” and “drive of life”. But all this doesnt prove a strong and huge cast is needed for excellent drama. “Rosy business” is unlike most HK tvb drams which focus too much on family ties. I dont mean “rosy” dont focus on that, but they’re more of a macro than micro perspective, showing how a mere women in olden times stand up against the odds to vie for a better living for all the folks which is so admirable. Sheren and Wayne did a real good job. This show is definitely worth watching. Much more than “Moonlight”, which was a teeny ridiculous to me. Because I cant understand why everytime 2 person or rather 2 families after staging huge war days ago, can suddenly sit down and greet each other as if nothing happen. Shen jing bing….

Then they can “war” and “hi”, “war” and “hi” for dozens of times as if machiam having dinner.

Husband and Wife war
1st war: Husband got affair and want divorce
2nd war: After divorce, fought custody for the all kids
3rd war: Husband vie for the family business brand name left behind by wife’s father.

Sisters’ war
1st war: Forcing dad to disown sister, saying she’s not of real flesh and blood
2nd war: Vie over the whole business of sister, despite she is the founder
3rd war: Collude with own daughter, lie and accuse sister’s daughter

And most are gigantic “wars” to me lor(you’ll know what I meant if you watched the show”. If me, after 1 major war, dont expect me to even say “hi” again. It’s impossible.

Guess what? The ending made it so that the sisters are still very loving sisters after everything, and the bastard husband was finally touched by all the things the ex-wife done and wanted to be back with her.

In drama, yes la.

Real life? I haven seen such a stupid, modern(not the old times ladies la) women before. Better dont let me see it. Smack her till she knows. =P

3 months away!

Last friday dearie meet up with his 2 buddies for a drink. Hence, I also find my own entertainment. Met up with T and C, the pair of darlings at Bugis Junction. I haven seen them in such a long while. Lol. As usual, the chatty T will always have alot to update me and the bunch of them are still as happening as usual. We had a long chat over our dinner and did some shopping. Around 10+pm, dearie messaged me that they were going St James to “check-kit-kout”. *rOlls eyes* Hamsup dear. Anyway, C joined us shortly after her work and we went supper at Liang Seah Street, a hongkong cafe. After which we adjourned to a pub just at the opposite where we bitched somemore. Haha. I ordered a heineken and subsequently a house red whilst they have iced water. =.= They hardly drink. Dearie came and fetched me home after his thing ended.

Bosco and Myolie simply have amazing and gorgeous bridal shoots done by My Dream Wedding, which is a bridal studio. Of course they didnt really get married but merely advertising for the bridal studio in Singapore. I didnt know that they actually have a branch in Singapore other than their headquarters in Hongkong and branch in KL. Since I have already booked mine, I can only ogle at the pictures and lament in pity. However, I heard in forums that their package’s price is on the high side and they’re not flexible on negotiations. They have wonderful service though. The great pair had such natural and endearing pictures that I couldnt believe they are merely friends or colleagues! Therefore, I googled them out and realised indeed there are rumours that they are an item. Haha. Quite an adorable pair!

Charlene and Ken also have wonderful shots and all their photos are provided by Mona Lisa and France Bridal. Im abit puzzled here about why the other 2 bridal salons are responsible for providing the pictures. Nevertheless, they were such great impressive shots and I wondered who are the photographers. Naturally, the location, Hongkong, is also a beautiful and scenic place for enchanting views. I really really hope when my time comes for photoshoot, it will be a balmy, breezy and cooling day instead of the usual hot, humid, sunny weather in Singapore…They’re really not inspiring or encouraging for a happy day of wedding photoshoot.

While kpo-ing about the gossips of Bosco & Myolie, I came across this blogsite, http://boscolieobsession-.blogspot.com/ which is very funny! For those who are crazy with hongkong tvb serials, I bet you are familiar with their actors/actresses.

Quoted from there:
The “translation” is done by the author of the blog and it’s so funny!

TVB’s executive, Virginia Lok Yi Ling (“Miss Lok”), recently gave comments on nine TVB artists.

Raymond Lam 林峰 is professional. Raymond Lam is being promoted, and 2007 is his year. He’s an excellent actor, but for him to be better looking on screen, I made him go on a diet. Every time I see him, I would ask, “How much weight did you lose?” The result was, he quickly lost 5 pounds. This is the professional spirit I see in him and what we want.

Translation: We threatened to stop promoting Raymond unless he stopped being “fat.” No one likes a fatty. We don’t care about our artist’s health. They just need to look good so we can make money.

Kenneth Ma 马国民 becomes a star: Years ago, he was lacking confidence, because everyone thought he was too cool, however, after years of acting, he started to changed. Now, he becomes more like a star with confidence, he even looks better now.

Translation: We have stopped giving Kenneth perverted roles, so stop viewing him as a pervert! We will keep giving him good roles until everyone accepts him as a good guy. In fact, we are going to ignore the fact that he had a role as a perverted criminal in Survivor’s Law and give him a new role as the lead in the sequel, where he plays an atypical, but “righteous” lawyer. Kenneth = good guy, leading man – got that?

kenneth
Dont really know who is he. =P

Bosco Wong 黄宗泽 is hardworking: He is very hardworking, working nonstop; sometimes he brings a sleeping bag to TVB and sleeps in the hall way whenever he can. A lot of producers like him, for example, in Dicey Business and Under the Canopy of Love, Bosco was only a guest star. But, he was so skilled in acting that the producers added lines to his characters.

Translation: Bosco is a slave to TVB; he signed a 8-year contract with us and we will work him for all he’s worth.

bosco

Moses Chan 陈豪 fits various roles: He is an actor that can portray many different types of characters. Giving him roles as doctors, lawyers, are all fine. Gangsters, regular citizens would also work; this is his strength. His future will be bright.

Translation: We know the audience only accepts Moses in comedy roles like Family Man and The Gentle Crackdown, but we want to give Moses the “first brother” position, so you will all have to accept him in whatever role we give.

moses

Ron Ng 吴卓曦 needs improvements: Ron Ng’s born attractive. In a short period of time, he gained a group of fans. However, he knew that his skills and his amount of fans are not proportional. After the new year, he’ll be going to USA for training class. Bosco is a smarter actor while Ron reacts slower.

Translation: We understand Ron is popular only because he’s “hot,” so we’ll continue to exploit his looks while they last, but we will make an “effort” to try one last time to see if we can dig up any ounce of talent at all in him.

ron

Charmaine Sheh 佘詩曼 opening China market: Charmaine’s acting skills are becoming more attractive, and her improvement is known by others. This year, we will help her open the market in China, because she’s quite famous in the Mainland.

Translation: We need to sell Charmaine quickly before she reaches her expiration date.

charmaine

Myolie Wu 胡杏兒 has a lot of choices: Myolie has a lot of advantages because she can speak English and can become a host or work on singing, aside from acting.

Translation: Myolie is the only artist who can sing, act, and host equally well. We will mold her to become our go-to girl for everything and replace Charmaine as “first sister” immediately after she reaches her expiration date. Laugh Out Loud

myolie

Shirley Yeung 楊思琦 successfully changed her image: In The Brink of Law, Shirley is evil, and it changed the image in many audience’s eyes.

Translation: We will give Shirley only evil roles from now on as it seems she can only “act” when being evil because we’re tired of people complaining about us giving her awards with preposterous claims that she cannot “act.”

shirley

Linda Chung 鍾嘉欣 liked by audience: Linda doesn’t know Chinese, but can react fast, and many audience like her. In Always Ready, she left a great impression. Many producers love her and gave her many chances. This year, she can possibly be promoted.

Translation: Linda is our robot… our new Charmaine, minus all of the rumors. She listens to us and does exactly what we want, so we love her – and you must too!

Hmm…among all tvb actors/actresses, I do appreciate Sonija 郭羨妮, Charmaine’s and Raymond’s good looks. However, the serials which I enjoyed most are by Bowie Lam 林保怡 and 欧阳震华. Ya although the former is not very handsome and the latter has balding crown with pot belly, they are excellent actors and both are very charming in their own ways. Ada Choi 蔡少芬 is always my ultimate favorite, with her striking good looks and outstanding acting skills. She’s always able to bring out the different roles she was being assigned.

ada

Oh ya I also liked 郭晉安 as well as 黄子华!! Both are very experienced actors, the former is cute while the latter is funny! Charmaine and Sonija are good actresses, so I still like their shows. Raymond is good in acting, however, news of his cockiness kinda irked me so I’ve dropped him. =P Bosco is quite cute but cant really act yet loh. Linda’s pretty refreshing and is doing good as a newbie. Shirley, kinda agree she cant really act but good to look at lah. I love HK tvb artistes. =) Pictures from artistes gotten from tvb.hk.

Dearie just now sooOooo funny you know. I pronounced “Yale” wrongly and he kept teased me! So I kept tickled him while he’s holding on to his bowl of dinner. And he was so distraught that he caught a cramp(抽筋) in his ribs, which was where I attacked him! Lol. Have you ever seen someone with a cramp in the ribs, near the armpits? Lol. I laughed till I rolled over. Although yes, I should feel sympathetic that he experienced a short, sharp pain. But I got too hilarious over his constipated face and spastic posture that I couldnt contained my laughter. HAHAHA. He’s still my cute dear lah. =)

Movie Title: The Mummy 3, Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
Ratings: 4.3/5
Comments: It’s seriously not bad! I love the realistic and natural digital effects. They made the plot believable although the part of the SnowMen kinda pushed it too far. I always love China’s history, especially about Qin Dynasty, no matter they are myths or legends. Dearie commented that the previous sequel is better though.

We finally e-filed at Registry of Marriage online and also arranged the timing with the solemnizer. Time flies and we’re going to ROM in around 3 months time. Lately, so many stuffs are taking up my time. Most of them are my own stupid problems. Thank god for dearie for always being there for me. I really, REALLY appreciate it SO SO much! Thanks dear and I love you so. =D
