Someone sent the below text to me, it is said to be written by a miss hk contestant this year, supposedly a complaint letter to the public... from the paragraph, the writer states that she is a form 7 student....
a form 7 student (that is equivalent to grade 12 or so)!!! can you believe that? hk is always known as an international city, even though most people don't speak english frequently, at least most can read and write simple english... seeing this letter below, it just makes me wonder, what is the roo...Read more
There are times that you feel like being imprisoned by loneliness.
That is, when you:
send a msg on msn and no one responds to you;
send an email (that contains a question or begs for a response) and it seems lost or takes ages to receive a reply, and furthermore, the reply doesn't address your question;
make a phone call and all you hear is a recorded message asking you to leave a message, and then you never get a call back;
schedule to meet a person but due to whatever reason, it ...Read more

That sucks!!!! Some people I know said they already got the email from the school...I haven't got it yet, but looks like it's coz my email on file is probably invalid...

I sometimes just wonder, why do we always respond to phone call instantly but rarely do we reply an email right away?
i mean, both are instant communication tools and we make a phone call or send an email because we want instant feedback. but there's a lot of time that we don't usually respond to the email we receive right away, while it is more likely for us to receive a call or return a call faster.
so just a simple survey for you guys:
do you tend to return a phone call faster than an email? Why?<...Read more
Ok, so just about a month after I met Kiyoshi Kurosawa, I got to meet another Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda (是枝裕和)! It's so exciting! He came to attend the international film festival in San Francisco and I was glad to have the opportunity to sit down and talk to him.
Again, it was done for Cinespot. Since Mr. Kore-eda spoke little slow, it was not a very long conversation, but I still wish to strongly appreciate him for sincerely answering all of my broad and difficult questions, and certainly for tak...Read more
Yeah I know everybody has been talking about the Susan Boyle hype, I saw the video on youtube and it is certainly amazing, but I sometimes wonder if the world is as perfect as it appears.
I agree she can really sing, but I guess the critical factor for her success is not merely her talent, but the marketing strategy employed by the tv producers of the show. These guys really know how to play the game!
I wouldn't call it a fiction, indeed i see it as a successful packaging technique that fully utilized the p...Read more
I just saw HKFAA on tv, it's showing here on the tvb channel in sf too, first of all, i would certainly like to congratulate all the winners, especially best director, best actor and best actress, somehow i do feel "the way we are" was worth the best picture award more than "ip man", if a film won best director, best actress, best supporting actress and best screenplay, it is hard to believe it couldn't win best picture...
anyway, both are good films and it's more...Read more
Do you think those quizzes on facebook are very annoying?
I really don't see the point of taking these stupid quizzes. It is perhaps fun to take one or two, but I really don't get it when people are taking these quizzes endlessly every day, even though they all know it is plain pointless. It is just as irritating as the 古惑仔 game before.
I mean, I don't really care if you like these quizzes, and perhaps it is really funny, but I am just so tired of seeing those quiz results of my friends ...Read more
