Stranger than Fan Fiction

Fascinating read but heartbreaking. Finished in 4 days thought my vacation. 

Very meta.  Felt sad that after voting my fingers till they are sore for the People Choice Award, only brought jealousy and punishment for him. Hope that this was not the end of his career.  

慢活

最近剛旅遊回來。還沒去之前,趕趕趕,回來之後,又是趕趕趕。只有那短短的假期,體會到慢慢的活著的美麗。太陽不會因為我們每天衝著死線而早點下山。慢一點,好好的休息,在沙灘漫步,欣賞夕陽,星星和碧海藍天。

不知不覺就過了二月立春,過了人生的第x的十年。

比別人慢了好幾年,才看完巾幗梟雄。雖然站在四奶奶與柴九這邊,但實在覺得謝雪心把大奶奶演得絲絲入扣。謝雪心和熬嘉年的母子實在演得太好了。我老是注意旁邊的綠葉多過主角,就像我愛吃窩邊菜一樣。

Just read an article of a book titled Crazy Rich Asian, written by Kevin Kwan, a descendant of  an OCBC banker.  Background of the story is set in Singapore, about very rich people. The book is a bestseller and is going to be made into a movie. I might borrow the book from the library. Not incline to buy book at the moment, mainly no space.  Besides, I have reservation contributing money if the book portrays a negative image of Singapore. The Singapore I grew up in is a country where most people work for a honest and humble living.  I might be wrong and ended up loving the book. 

 I first heard about Crazy Rich Asian from Ryan Higa’s Twitter asking Asian to audition for roles.  I didn’t pay much attention to it then because I have very little interest in the life of Asian American, filthy rich or dirt poor. In fact, I am put off that people from various ethnic group and various culture of the Asia continent is pigeonholed into a group called Asian in USA. Chinese, Japanese, Korean are different. Philipinos, Indonesian are different. Indian, Sri Lankan, Pakistani are different.  

Anyway, hope that the book is good and the movie is successful. For a start, I respect that the movie make a stand by not whitewashing the roles.

1st Post of 2017

It is already 15 Jan 2017.

I want to be healthy and happy.

Keep walking 10, 000 steps per day.

Strech.

Chinese New Year is coming and this year, my spring cleaning will be half measures because of my injury. Did throw away lots of stuff. There were some bags that I never use for years, and all the shoeboxes that took up space. 

Need to restrain from buying books because I have many unread books. 

Watched Stranger Things and the show was good. Waiting for Season 2. 

Watching Sherlock but it was a bit tedious. I can’t concentrate for more than an hour. 

八時入席 is over. Watched because of 陳國邦 but the show seemed to be focusing on 十仔。Okay with the younger actors but 心裡有點不是味道。

My passion with Pokemon Go is winding down because I just have no luck with hatching eggs – I seldom hatch any rare Pokemon and still lacking 5 Gen 2. If it is based on legwork, I can walk to catch. The current Gen 2 Pokemon are based on eggs and the game just reminded me how luckless I am. 

Before my back injury is fully recovered, I have flu 😒. I want to be healthy. 

Need to find something interesting to focus so that I do not frustrated over work easily.
