Kate Tsui "Mind Reading" MV

video

讀心術 - 徐子珊

作曲: Robert Waller/Steve Duberry
填詞: 徐子珊/李峻一
編曲/監製: Davy Chan/C.Y. Kong

現在你 望著我 用直覺 別用視覺
讓偽裝 花紙般撕破 (看看我的秘密願望)
漠視你 待慢你 或是我 在做戲
若是你 不要敷衍我 (你會看出很多驚喜)

*從來讀心最易 為何未可發現
我每句心裡話跟說話未會一致 

U never see, u never feel
不懂透視 肢體的語言 很秘密 的暗示
U never see, u never feel
不敢正視 彼此的故事 早已是 超友誼 

眉和眼 像在笑 言辭卻 淡若雪
未洞悉 假正經真心意 (你更困憂更是混亂)
男孩有 萬萬個 誰人會 明暸我
或是我 早揭穿得太多 (怕這晚紙包不到火)

Repeat *

Hey boy u stare'n at me
U want me be your baby
I’ll be direct n’ tell you
Yes n’ No or maybe so

Please …after my soul
Nothing about figural
C'mon now n’ read my mind
Forever be your sweet angel

許多訊號 眉梢中可的到
想猜透我 你不必 智力要很高
許多訊號 從呼吸感覺到
請猜透我 你不必 說話再討好

U never see, u never feel
不懂透視 肢體的語言 很秘密 的暗示
U never see, u never feel
不敢正視 彼此的故事 早已是 超友誼
U never see, u never feel
可否正視 彼此的故事 早已是 超友誼

On Vacation

hyn5 @ Fortunate City will be on hiatus since I will be away in China from March 10 to April 16, 2009. Therefore, no new entries will be posted on this blog until my return. In the meantime, please support the sites on my links. Take care and don't forget to come back to visit the blog! Ha ha....

P.S. I really like this picture of Steven and Tavia! Ha ha....

Info on 《宮心計》 Beyond the Realm of Conscience

Inside info has it that Moses Chan and Kevin Cheng's roles are not big (I think this was a given with all the females in it). Also, insider is also saying that Charmaine Sheh and Tavia Yeung are main, whereas Michelle Yim and Susanna Kwan are supporting.

How supporting can Michelle and Susanna be? It makes sense for Kevin Cheng's role to be smaller since he is going to film "Iron Horse Seeking Bridge" in April/May.

"Twin of Brothers" - Heading Off to Mainland

This picture was taken on July 17th, 2003, at Lantau's praying before departing to Mainland to film for "Twin of Brothers". It must have been a very hot day because Ron and Raymond are both sweating!

The caption for this picture described Ron as a newbie. That was true because "Find the Light" aired on August 8th, 2003; however, "Triumph in the Skies" did not air until October 27th, 2003.

I really wanted to post this picture of the three of them in the post where Ron and Raymond were presented with their 'Ten Year Gold Medal' before the actual ceremony (pre-ceremony). However, I looked everywhere online, and this picture was nowhere to be seen. So again, I dug this out of my stash. Enjoy!

TVB Programme Highlights 2009 Issue 1

*Credits to AC @ My Favorite TVB for the scans!

"Man in Charge" and "Just Love II"

"Man in Charge" is finally releasing! I've waited so long for this. It is will air after "The Winter Melon Tale" on Monday, April 6, 2009, at 8:30pm. The series was filmed in May 2007, but there is no way TVB was going to warehouse it. Just like "D.I.E.", if they were going to warehouse it, wouldn't it have been released overseas? Out of all these six series on this highlight, only Ma Ming and Kate's names are mentioned in the series description. That is because the description was taken from a previous highlight. I like the look of the poster! Also, both Ma Ming and Matthew Ko sing the theme song.

As for "Just Love II", I don't know what they are going to talk about in this sequel. Didn't Johnson Lee end up with Fiona Yuen?

programme_highlights_issue_1_02
"The Threshold of a Persona" and "The King of Snookers"

TVB finally decides to place Yoyo's name second in "The Threshold of a Persona". Her name was fourth at the costume fitting. Nothing about this series interests me at all. Not the producer, Marco Law Wing Yin, not the series topic, and not even the cast. Didn't Catherine Tsang and Marco learn their lesson from "Always Ready"? What's up with the colour of the poster? It seems as though the light has washed out the white in their uniforms making it look as though they are wearing scrubs with badges and hats. To me, this series has the potential to be a warehoused series.

I usually watch Adam Cheng series, but Patrick Tang takes the interest away from "The King of Snookers". Stephen Chan is trying to push Patrick up to siu sang status. Too bad Sammul Chan was filming "Wong Lo Fu Snatches Wife"...my interest for this would so come back! Ha ha.... As for the poster, you would think that Adam would be shooting the pool ball instead of Patrick. Rumour has it that both Adam and Patrick sing the theme. Since when does Adam share a theme song with somebody other than Liza Wang?

programme_highlights_issue_1_03
"Rosy Business" and "The Beauty of the Game"

I am very looking forward to "Rosy Business". Not only do Kate and Patrick have two series in this highlight, but producer Lee Tim Sing also has two series in here. The series is worth watching from just looking at the list of 實力派s like Sheren Tang, Wayne Lai, Kiki Sheung, Kara Hui, Elliot Yue, Susan Tse, etc. As for the English title, the definition of 'rosy' is bright, cheerful, and optimistic. Maybe that is why Ron and Kiki are smiling in this poster. I absolutely love Ron's bald look! Ha ha.... Ron also sings the theme song.

The only thing that I like about "The Beauty of the Game" is the English title (the play on the entertainment business being a game). Other than that, this also has the potential to be warehoused.

"Big Winter Melon" - Don Li & Lai Lok Yi

大冬瓜 《大冬瓜》 主題曲 - 李逸朗/黎諾懿

邊個話我傻
請佢食燒鵝
邊個話我傻
請佢食燒鵝

大冬瓜 誇啦啦啦
啦住冬瓜仔 發現好多計仔
冬瓜女 靚到人人都想娶
仲有隻變色龍佢最鍾意捉蟲
烏鴉嘴 流都成面都口水
怕醜草 執到寶 寶寶抱抱
抱著冬菇頭個頭D樓
(慳番D銀兩唔使買樓)

塵世裡 需要愛
人間故事總有愛
塵世裡 多競賽
民間結局需記載
塵世裡 需要愛
人間故事總有愛
塵世裡 多競賽
民間結局多障礙

其實以我大冬瓜嚟睇
做神仙真係好似冇乜計仔
又要索又要博 對唔住
係人要博妖要索
仲要食燒鵝

俾人話我傻 (你傻o架)
真係邊個再話我傻
我就真係走去請佢食燒鵝

Air Date: Monday, March 9, 2009 @ 8:30pm

Personal Note: I really enjoy the theme song! It describes the characters in the series. I like the song so much that I even spent ten minutes typing the Chinese lyrics out. Ha Ha.... However, I'm not too sure about who sings it though. FAMA? But they don't have lazy sounds....

Update: Just found out that Don Li and Lai Lok Yi sing the theme song, and Roy Chow wrote the lyrics. No wonder there were so many lazy sounds. That would explain it. Ha ha....

Nancy Wu Highly Praises Kenneth Ma

Nancy Wu was at an event with Deep Ng's present girlfriend, Jacquelin Ch'ng. When the reporters requested for the two to stand together and take a picture, Nancy's manager expressed that there was no need to. Nancy said, "We don't know each other, so there is no need. I would like year 2009 to wash away all of year 2008's unhappy matters. I don't want to be associated with these two names (Deep Ng and Jacquelin Ch'ng) anymore. (What about with Kenneth Ma?) That's all right!"

Sweetly Praises Him as Being Good Guy

Although Nancy has denied her love relationship with Kenneth, she could not restrain from revealing her sweet smile and also praising him non-stop. When asked if they were love at first dance? She said, "No, I didn't dance with him. We are still good friends. I'm not saying that he cannot be my boyfriend. (Your rumours were in the C1 headlines!) I'm not afraid of these headlines! I can even accept more of these headlines, since my rumoured partner is so good! (Does he have potential?) Yes, he has a good reputation among artistes. And he is also a dong ka siu sang, but I don't think he is pursuing me. (Is he your ideal partner?) I don't know! He has such great attributes. It is very hard to find such a good guy!"

Personal Note: I can't help myself from not translating when so many people sing Ma Ming's praises. Ha ha....

Even though Ma Ming and Nancy did not dance with each other on "Strictly Come Dancing II", they have already danced with each other at TVB's 37th Anniversary in 2004. They were paired up with each other in the music skit along with Joe Ma, Melissa Ng, Sammul Chan, Kate Tsui, etc. Ha ha....

News on "Beautiful Cooking 2009"

A new season of the popular game show that premiered in 2006 has been finalized to begin recording soon. The hosts will continue to be Ronald Cheng, Edmond Leung, and Alex Fong Lik Sun. The entire season will consist of 13 episodes.

Some of the female artistes who have previously gone on would most likely go on again. Will Kary Ng burn down the studio this time? Is Ella Koon going to put on kitchen repellant base concealer makeup before she cooks? What secret ingredient is Yoyo Mung going to tackle now?

Will a singer, model, or actress be crowned 'Beautiful Cooking Goddess'?

Who would you like to see on the new season of "Beautiful Cooking"?

Personal Note: Some of the female artistes whom I would like to see go on and have not gone on would be Anita Yuen, Jessica Hsuan, Miriam Yeung, Charmaine Sheh, Denise Ho, Selena Li, Nancy Wu, Mikki Yao, Linda Chung, and many more.

Wouldn't it be funny to see Eric Tsang and Bobby Au Yeung to be guests judges? I can just picture them tasting horrible food. Ha ha....

Saw a lot of netizens on the HK Discussion Forum are rooting for Selena to go on.

News on "Heaven and Earth"

Nick Cheung said on TVBE, "I have agreed to film a series with TVB, but because of production difficulties, the process is being dragged out. I do not dare to confirm when I am coming back to film. I still have to read the script to see if the storyline is refreshing".

Personal Note: In other words, the whole series is not confirmed yet. It seems as though TVB does not want to this big production series to happen. I can see why TVB would consider this because the economy is low and Chik's past two big productions have failed miserably. I'd suggest for TVB to hold off on this type of series for a little while longer. It would also be a smart move.

Louis Koo's Wax Figure

古仔否認一哥地位
video

louis_wax_figure01louis_wax_figure02louis_wax_figure03louis_wax_figure04louis_pepsilouis_pepsi01

Louis Koo was present at Madame Tussauds Shanghai to unveil his "Blue Warrior" wax figure. Louis is considering spending money to make another wax figure, so he can have a memento when he retires. "It takes a couple million dollars (HKD) to make one of these (wax figures), and they also must have the time to make it. Thus, I'll think about it in ten years. At that time, it can be like a toy figurine, and you can help him change clothes. For instance, pajamas, superman clothes, or it doesn't have to wear any clothing at all".

Since Louis is the first Pepsi spokesperson to have a wax figure, does this make him Pepsi's Number One Brother? "I think Jolin Tsai is the Number One Sister because she is the only female spokesperson".

Personal Note: That's pretty cool that Louis has a wax figure, even though at some angles it looks like Jaycee Chan and Ekin Cheng. But still, he is the first one out of TVB after the big stars to have one. That is a great achievement!

Also, Louis is nominated for 'Best Actor' in "Run Papa Run" at the 28th Hong Kong Film Awards (HKFA) along with Simon Yam ("Sparrow"), Tony Leung Chiu Wai ("Red Cliff"), Nick Cheung ("Witness"), and Donnie Yen ("Ip Man"). HKFA will be held on April 19th, 2009.

The cast of "Root of Evil" (excluding Nancy Sit because she is hospitalized) was filming on 山頂. Ma Ming, Sharon Chan, and Vincent Wong were wearing ancient army clothes because the scene was about them participating in a wedding carriage race.

Ron Ng - Dancer Days

I bet the most hardcore Ron Ng fan wouldn't even have this picture of him as a dancer! Ha ha....

In 2000, Nick Cheung was signed under EEG as a newbie singer. He and Joey Yung were on one of TVB's variety shows as performers, and Ron was one of the dancers in their segment. From the end pose, it seemed as though Ron was an artiste and not a dancer. Why would he be standing in the middle? Ha ha....

FYI: Again, this picture came from one of my secret stashes! Ha ha....

A Blast from the Past: "Healing Hands" Costume Fitting

Steven Ma, Flora Chan, and Bowie Lam at the costume fitting of "Healing Hands". I guess Flora was supposed to be a doctor in part one. Tang Tak Hei must have changed his mind for the real filming of it.
