Devastating quake hits again~

It was only 6 months ago on September 4th 2010 when a 7.2 magnitude quake hit Christchurch at just past 4am....... and this afternoon, the city was hit again at 12.51pm with a devastating 6.3 magnitude earthquake which was only at a depth of 5km......

.... ..... terrifying, horrific..... the destruction!!!!......

At least 65 people are confirmed dead, at least 100 people still trapped in buildings....

It's dark....it's raining....and there are large aftershocks happening nearly every hour...

Here are some before and after shots, showing how the city turned to rubble in a matter of seconds:

The quake also caused 30 million tonnes of ice to break off from one of the glaciers, forming iceburgs in some of the lakes:

So much destruction....so much loss....so sad......

My heart goes out to everyone in the city!!! My thoughts are with you all!!!!!!

You can see the Kaikoras in the horizon (the place where you go whale watching!! hee hee :) ) Wish I had a better camera to capture the picture properly.....

prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" / 

 

According to the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Kong Xiu served under Cao Cao and was a warden guarding Dongling Pass (東岭關). He was the first of 6 wardens to be killed by Guan Yu when he charged through 5 passes to reunite with his sword brother, Liu Bei. (It goes without saying that I left out A LOT of details to this historic section of the story….I guess you should read Romance of the Three Kingdoms ~ or watch the tv series to understand the full story. Even better yet, wait till the movie comes out and you’ll understand!! )…

 

Anyway, here are some pictures of Andy revealing his character and outfit:

《李小龙》 Bruce Lee: My Brother

《李小龙》 Bruce Lee: My Brother A movie about Bruce Lee ~ played by newcomer Aarif Lee (no relation to Bruce). The film will be released to coincide with the 70th anniversary of his birth. “Bruce Lee, My Brother” will cover Lee’s teenage years in Hong Kong — where he trained in kung fu and worked as a movie actor — leading up to the time when he departed for the U.S. in 1959 at age 18.

“Bruce Lee, My Brother” is a co-production from Hong Kong’s Media Asia and Chinese partners. The film has a tentative release date for November in Hong Kong, mainland China and other Asian markets, timed with the date of Lee’s birthday on Nov. 27. It isn’t yet clear if the film will get a U.S. release.

Donnie Yen ~ Spokesman for Online Game!?!?

 

 

I never thought that Donnie Yen would wanna be a spokesman for an online game.....but I guess I was very wrong!! ....

Saw these pictures online the other day....it's Donnie dressed up in various character costumes for a game called: 《大唐無雙》

The outfits look really interesting....although, the hairstyle looks a little weird on Donnie....it actually looks like it's a little oversized for his head and it's not fitting properly!....

Anyhow....I absolutely love period/martial arts/kungfu outfits.... it looks so cool!!

Here's the pix:

...(Love that spear!!!.....).....

...double sword!....

...Donnie the "crazy hair" warrior!.....

I'm not too sure what the online game is actually about.....nor do I know where you can play the game....

but Donnie does look pretty cool in those costumes! ~ Especially that nicely detailed spear!!

(me like!!  .... wonder if they sell those kinds of weapons for display?...hmmm....)

Mr. Yen....

Love in Disguise 戀愛通告

Leehom Wang and his directorial debut ~~ Love in Disguise < 戀愛通告>

I'm kinda looking forward to this no-brainer, light-hearted romantic comedy ~ featuring Leehom Wang, Crystal Liu Yifei, Joan Chen, Xie Na, and a cameo appearance by Khali Fong.

The trailer looks quite interesting....funny-ish......with an okay storyline where a super-star (Leehom) goes undercover at a school just to get closer to some ordinary girl (Crystal Liu YiFei). [More about the story below....]

In general.....Leehom is a very, very talented musician ~ he's got some awesome skills with so many flippin instruments!! Like the guitar, piano, violin, drums, pipa, erhu....and so many others!!...(makes me so jealous!)..... Anyway, it's good to see him branching out and giving the director's seat a go~

It's also nice to see Crystal Liu on the screen again as well. After The Forbidden Kingdom, she seemed to have disappeared for a while.....

The official trailer (from Sina.com):

Synopsis: Love In Disguise" is about pop star Du Ming-Han (Wang Leehom) who wishes to find true love amidst his busy schedule. He then attempts to enroll into a school by disguising himself as a student alongside his trusty assistant, played by Chen Han-Tien ("Monga"). The star-studded cast also includes Joan Chen ("Lust, Caution"), Crystal Liu ("The Forbidden Kingdom"), Xie Na ("Young Liu Bo Cheng") and a cameo appearance by Hong Kong singer-songwriter Khalil Fong.

Besides channeling the famous 'Brother Sharp' beggar look, Leehom also experimented with other characters, like applying face paint, pretending to be a football fan, putting on mafia-esque outfits, and also wearing a huge can-endorsement suit! During filming, the crew joked that Leehom looked a lot like the great Argentina striker Gabriel Batistuta. On the other hand, Chen Han Dian wasn't feeling so great about being in a soccer uniform, "I'm only 171 cm. I look like a child wearing adult clothing!" prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /

Due to be released in Asia on August 12, 2010
