I received a replacement 8GB Zune, so I've been uploading more Chinese music videos. I guess my fascination with Chinese music videos is that they are never shown on regular (or even most cable) channels here in the USA. A few years ago when I was in Taiwan, I watched both Channel V and MTV China every chance I had!...Read more
Because one of the Hong Kong policemen (he was at the Tsim Sha Tsui YMCA on Christmas Night!!!) told me to go the wrong way to get to the harbor front, I had to rush to make it to see the Symphony of Lights show and accidentally dropped by camera, breaking the lens. I ended up buying a new lens that isn't as nice (but tied me through the rest of my trip), and when I got back here to the US, I looke...Read more
I think this little girl is really cute. I asked my mother if she could do everything shown in this commercial and my mother said, "no". I hope I can have a daughter someday, but I don't think it's going to happen.

For those who don't know, Ip Man was the ins...Read more
My order from yesasia.com arrived. As much as I order from them, I really need to setup some sort of website and sign up on their affiliate program.
Today, I watched:
Last night, my guzheng teacher was being super stubborn about making a professional DVD in China - she wants one for giving out to symphonies/ orchestras in the USA so she can perform with them - similar to a video resume. I told her to be careful because China is "PAL" video format and the US is "NTSC" and that video made there might not work here.
That opened a can of worms, she said: they are professionals, that the only reason why DVD's there won't play here is the quality of the discs, that play...Read more
While I was in HK for Christmas, I saw an advertisement for Red Cliff (赤壁) Part 2 - has anyone seen this movie yet? I enjoyed the first one very much and read a couple of reviews of Part 2 (seems a lot of people liked it). And of course, I think
*Lin Chiling (林志玲)is extremely pretty. (
