With a frame of 173cm, Kelly's 42-inch slender legs have always been a symbol for her. Kelly tends to wear shorts and hot pants to show her legs.
The soon-to-be 37-year-old Joey Meng placed at number eight. Her unforgettable character, Ma Siu Ling, in "My Date With A Vampire" is always wearing short skirts and showing off her beautiful legs, granting her an evident placing in the top ten. Joey is only 170cm, but her legs are 42 inches long. Of the top ten female artistes, she is the oldest one.
Due to the popularity of "Heart of Greed", Linda Chung placed at number four, while Tavia Yeung took the tenth position.
In order to accommodate the release of his latest Mandarin album, Andy Lau has created a toy he named "Andox" which is the combination of Andy and Ox.
Andox was created by Andy with his own hands when he was on location filming in Dunhuang. The official birth date of Andy's "son" was on May 11, 2007 on Mother's day.
The 300 limited edition Andox set of five were sold out within minutes of its release (July 7) in Taipei. Andy explained, "The production company is in the process of making more, but there isn't enough time for production. I'm thinking it would be best to launch about 30, 000 or 300,000 of them. Thus, I hope Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mainland China, and other areas' fans will give me more time, and everyone will get their hands on one".
Personal Note: For some reason, Andox reminds me of TVbuddy.
"Never thought that I, I would be called a superstar. Very cool!"
Ada Choi and others were in Qingdao filming "The Gem of Life", and outside a restaurant, there was a banner that read, "Welcome International Superstars Ada Choi, Maggie Shiu, Bowie Lam, Moses Chan, and Wong He". The playful Ada instantly posted an entry in her blog titled "Qingdao - International Superstars".
"Handsome Kenny, thank you for your support (sorry, hahaha)!"
"No, you're in here to???... (Just kidding, we are all international pig stars) Thank you for your support. Thank you for browsing, thank you pig heads.
In Leehom's past two albums, "Heroes of Earth" and "Shangri-la", he had successfully fused hip hop and Chinese traditional music into a musical style he called "Chinked-out". In music, Leehom always seems to find ways to challenge himself, to be creative, and to make breakthroughs. This is why, in his latest album, he presents a new image and takes on new musical projects. The songs will take on a cleaner feel and will sound more mellow, just like the song from Ang Lee's movie, "Lust, Caution", titled "Falling Leaf Returns to Roots".
The concept for 《Change Me》 is "Environmental Safety". Leehom believes that music can touch people's hearts and there is no issue that cannot be addressed through music. Through "Change Me" (track 1), the song's fast tune, easy humming melody, and interesting lyrics, allow music fans to sing along and pass on the positive message, "Save the Environment". Just like a seed, it will one day grow to a big tree. Leehom spreads the love and changes himself and anticipates a more beautiful world.
In the title track, "Change Me", one cannot help but emphasize the world's most concerned problem such as "Environmental Safety". The lyrics go, "I wake up this morning with a headache, and it is probably because there is too much carbon dioxide in the air, and not enough oxygen". Just like that, he slightly points out global warming. For this problem, Leehom starts off by changing himself first. He insists on making the packaging for this album as simple as possible. The plastic wrap is replaced with recyclable paper. Leehom wants to start off a trend and hopes that others will follow. The album also comes with a specially made pair of chopsticks as a reminder to fans to start changing and get rid of the bad habit of using disposable plastic utensils.
Not only does Leehom have full control of the album's production and composition, but he also wrote the lyrics to nine of the songs. You can see Leehom's Chinese literature gradually improving.
"Falling Leaf Returns to Roots" (track 3) is a Chinese saying: "Tree grows to one thousand yards high, falling leaf returns to roots", which simply means a person should never forget and remember their upbringings and return to their roots. To Leehom, the title is especially meaningful to him. He also directed the MV for this song.
"Incomplete Melody" (track 9) is a musical experiment for Leehom. He combined incomplete melodies for this song to express love that is incomplete. Although the melody is incomplete, Leehom has created an easy-listening to the song. Through the song, Leehom wants to get the message that incomplete love is also a type of beauty as long as you look at it in a different perspective. In "Saturday Night" (track 12), you can hear Leehom express regret and sorrow.
The fast songs in this album are full of support and encouragement, just like the song "Love's Encouragement". By simply adding "Hey!" and "Ho!" to the song, it gives it more energy to listen to. In the love song "Our Song" (track 5), Leehom cleverly adds the song titles "Forever Love" and "Kiss Goodbye" and takes on the perspective of a small character. He actually sings out a feeling everyone can relate to. The song "In My Heart, You Are a Song" (track 6), Leehom sings with S.H.E.'s Selina. The lyrics in the song switch off from Mandarin to Taiwanese, which is quite interesting.
Through the process of always improving and changing, Leehom does not leave out his "Chinked-out" style. "Cockney Girl" (track 8) is a song about a Chinese-speaking girl he saw in London. He observed that more and more people in the world are learning and speaking Chinese. Even in an unfamiliar place like London, you can run into Chinese-speaking people. In "Long Live Chinese People", Leehom specially made it for the participants in 2008's Beijing Olympics as an encouragement. Since this will be the first time that the Summer Olympics will be hosted by the Chinese people, the meaning will be extra special. You can say it is the Chinese's pride.

My rating: 8/10 Compared to the previous two albums, this one is a regular album...a good regular album. It is not really a change for Leehom because he has had mellow songs before like "Only". The songs I really enjoy are "Change Me", "Falling Leaf Returns to Roots", "Our Song", "Love's Encouragement", and "Long Live Chinese People".
- Raymond Lam as 無情 Wu Qing (Mo Ching) - Emotionless
- Kenneth Ma as 鐵手 Tie Shou (Tit Sau) - Iron Hand
- Sammul Chan as 追命 Zhou Ming (Jui Ming) - Life Snatcher
- Ron Ng as 冷血 Leng Xue (Lang Huet) - Cold Blooded
- Dominic Lam as 諸葛神侯 Zhuge Shenhou (Jue Got San Hau) - The master of the four constables
- Raymond and Kate Tsui
- Kenneth and Selena Li
- Sammul and Vivi Li
- Ron and Cilla Kung
- Dominic Lam and Kristal Tin
Kenneth and Selena will play an arguing couple. Selena is sassy fighter whose weapon is a leather whip.
Since Raymond is crippled in the series, most of the fighting scenes will go to Kenneth and Ron. Sammul will mostly film wire scenes.
Selena: "No, I think he is a very tall and handsome 'siu sang' (actor) who is being promoted right now. That is why he will quickly rise to the next level. After receiving the 'Most Improved' award, the next one should be the 'Male Lead' award".
Kenneth: (Embarrassed) "Okay, you should be getting the next 'Most Improved' award".
Selena: " 'Male Lead' award!" (She punches him slightly on the shoulder.)
Kenneth: "You're getting the 'Most Improved' award".
Personal Note: I kind of guessed that Selena wouldn't pair up with Ron. From the start, it doesn't seem that Ron's character is that big. Funny because when they first started filming "The Master of Tai Chi", we didn't know who was going to pair up with Kenneth. My first reaction was, "I'm only going to accept Selena to be paired up with him". Later, we knew that Selena was confirmed to be in the cast.
