Have a Happy New Year everyone!
Since I only know/ understand a few Japanese words, it took me a minute to figure out this Epson projector commercial (okay, I admit I was watching Ryoko Yonekura). It's showing that they have a one button keystone correction.
Three weeks ago, I FINALLY planted the two Japanese maple trees (Acer Palmatum) that I had bought earlier in the year (I wanted to wait until the fall, but when I contacted two landscapers to see if they would clear out the spots, I never heard back from them, so I decided to do the job myself and plant the two trees).

I watched " Shaolin" tonight. Much better than the review I read, so I liked it. I will have to visit the Shaolin temple (少林寺) and the Pagoda Forest someday. Lots of well known screen stars in this movie: Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Jackie Chan, Read more
I watched "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" (單身男女). It's a romantic (chick flick) movie. The film stars Louis Koo, Daniel Wu and Gao Yuanyuan. I like Gao Yuanyuan ( 高圓圓)- I think she's really p...Read more

I read that some of the 2005 band members didn't li...Read more
I really like these photos of Taiwanese actress, Kwai Lun-Mei (桂綸鎂). These are fromSina.com
She was recently in Ocean Heaven (海洋天堂) and sung one of the songs from the movie. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtK4q4QLBio
Last night I went to watch "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan", it's based on a novel. Written by Lisa See. Starring Li Bing Bing ("Forbidden Kingdom"), Jeon Jihyun ("My Sassy Girl"), directed by Wayne Wang ("The Joy Luck Club"), and produced by Wendi Murdoch (The "Tiger Wife" who saved her husband from getting a pie in the face).
Although Pocky Sticks are sold here in the US, I never see any TV commercials for them.
(I especially like Shibasaki Kou and Yukie Nakama!!!)
