Ocean Heaven (海洋天堂)

I'm curious to watch Ocean Heaven (海洋天堂) - that's a recent Jet Li ( 李連杰)movie.  No martial arts, but it's received some good reviews and has a good story:

"Oceans Heaven follows a terminally ill father working in an aquarium and struggles to look after his 21 year old autistic son Dafu ( Wen Zhang)who attempts to find his son a suitable home before he passes away.

Venomous snakes in Hong Kong

Just out of curiosity, I decided to look into the venomous snakes of Hong Kong.  Now I realize, I need to be more careful the next time I go off the main roads (not sure if any of these were on Lantau Island, but I was tempted to go exploring some of the trails there, but I wanted to go visit the fishing village of Tai O, so I skipped the trails).

One of my HK friends told me that fortunately, she's never seen a snake in HK other than in a shop.

Japanese archery, Kyūdō (弓道)

I've always thought Japanese archery, Kyūdō (弓道), looks so interesting. The bow (Yumi) is really tall and held off center. Once the arrow is released, the bow is allowed to rotate in the archer's hand. All of that just seems so unconventional (although I can see why if you're riding a horse and your bow is very tall, you would need to hold it off center).  One of these days, I'd like to watch The Tōshiya (通し矢, とおしや) archery exhibition at the Sanjūsangendō (三十三間堂) temple ...in Kyoto (although it's jam packe...Read more

I like this Coca-Cola (可口可樂) Commercial starring Chinese singers: Zhang Shaohan and Pan Weibo.  I'll have to try this trick someday.

Japanese Prada Employee Fired For Being Too Ugly?

I have some Korean friends that keep urging me to buy Prada.  After seeing what happened in Japan, I'm not so sure I want to!  (I think I'd rather have the Yamaha RX-Z11 11.2-Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver instead.).  The article is here on japanprobe.com.
