Fala Chen Tricks Kenneth Ma

Myolie Wu, Kenneth Ma, and Fala Chen promoted "Triumph in the Skies II" at the '2012 China International Film Festival & TV Programs Exhibition'.


happysusan: "A very interesting story: Not long ago, a very, very mischievous little friend introduced her new series' look as being short hair. The long hair that everyone sees now is fake. The handsome guy beside her had a surprised and suspecting look. Then the little friend laughed, hitting him while saying, 'It's real! Was joking before!'"

"Come Home Love" Sub Song 2

video

"Betray" - Auston Lam

騙徒 《愛.回家》 插曲 - 林師傑

作曲: 林師傑
填詞: 宋沛言
編曲/監製: 葉肇中

忘記背後 嘗試接受
尋覓理由 找個方法放手
誰答應後 誰妄想以後
承諾照舊 是永久

時代變奏 難被看透 痛快地看化是借口
承諾說過 無奈逐一生銹 誰會堅守

*誰說話有厚道 誰說話似騙徒 答應後撇撇脫脫劃定記號
人會是個問號 難免回應變得 似真 似假

迷信以後 無法接受
原諒理由 心已穿了缺口
矇騙背後 難看清以後
誰是領袖 是與否

時代變奏 難被看透 痛快地看化是借口
承諾說過 無奈逐一生銹 難以牽手

Repeat *

誰說話有後路 誰會遇上騙徒 答應後撇撇脫脫劃定記號
誰會是個問號 無法回應變得 似真 似假

"Come Home Love" Sub Song

"The Puppet Said" - Auston Lam

小木偶的話 《愛.回家》 插曲 - 林師傑

作曲: 林師傑
填詞: 宋沛言
編曲/監製: 葉肇中

曾笑著說 曾喊著說 說謊已不經意自然
人似木偶 重覆悔疚 說謊去歪曲了自由

*如木偶在說話開了口 自製謊話要求
無論結局會幸福與否 直說坦白因由 無謂故事最後得到這內疚

還有沒有 純真密友 了解我這一塊木頭
曾似木偶 時刻內疚 變尖了這一個鼻頭

如木偶在說話開了口 習慣說話輕浮
逃避責任會唸出借口 就以謊話保留
其實結局會幸福與否 從犯錯心態內深刻參透 盼可自救

Repeat *

期望以後說話不顫抖 木偶放下憂愁
原諒往日幼稚的借口 木偶心內懇求
期望結局會幸福永久 從犯錯心態內深刻參透 盼可自救

傳說木偶 傳說木偶
最終也得到了自由 樂透

Can tell that Nancy was singing like Sammi in the Sammi song.

The solo version is much slower than the duet version...prefer the original arrangement.

"Illusory Reversal of Fate" - Wong Cho Lam

video

奇幻逆緣 - 王祖藍

作曲/編曲/監製: John Laudon
填詞: 林若寧

當天的你奉信有叮噹 當天歡笑為支波板糖
當天一臉熱血童軍裝 就算身軀矮細也很壯

今天的你換上了西裝 要和同類寄居兵工廠
今天經濟令你太不安 望向空房更沮喪

一歲一歲的埋沒魯莽偏偏一身冷汗
一歲一歲的忘掉以往開朗

放下了木偶玩具 解散的五色戰隊
失約的探險之旅 換到千斤重的畏懼
每日每夜戴面具 順從現況生活流
封建都放棄反對 沒有青春那種敏銳
歲月變做了負累

應該相信路徑會康莊 要和時代每一天追趕
積蓄豐厚換到紅酒倉 但你擁有得更多你心底仍迷惘

放下了木偶玩具 解散的五色戰隊
失約的探險之旅 成為千斤重的畏懼
每日每夜戴面具 順從現況生活流
封建都放棄反對 沒有青春那種敏銳
歲月變做了負累 眼淚淹沒了汗水

當你翻看你的紀念冊中衷心的句子
衰老的你會不會夜半反思

你便放下你面具 組你的五色戰隊
闖你的探險之旅 丟去千斤重的畏懼
敬重你滴過汗水 為求逆向生命流
一歲一歲細一歲 重回娃娃臉的敏銳
抱著你木偶熟睡

Personal Note: This song supposedly got leaked, but EEG decided to plug it earlier due to good reception...it was probably just a promotional tactic, but the song is quite good.

Esther Kwan Teases Bobby Au Yeung About Having Bigger Stomach Than Husband

CREDIT IF REPOSTED

01

Yesterday, 'Onscreen Couple' Bobby Au Yeung and Esther Kwan were in Yuen Long filming the new series "Love Reverses Three Lifetimes of Fate". Although the two had to work on Christmas Eve, they were fortunate enough to celebrate with their family in the evening. Collaborating again after separating for a while, the two were still in tune with each other, teasing each other off camera.

Bobby laughed at Esther for reaching a new level in acting, and also revealed that Nick Cheung would often visit the set and is getting more and more muscular: "Mr. Cheung told me to make his wife happier. Once he knew about having to film overnight, he would silently come and visit the set, even bringing along some abs! His arm is double my size". Esther laughingly said, "His stomach is not bigger than yours!" Regarding her husband's devoted care, she feels warm inside. Although her husband frequently gets injured from filming, Esther said that she would not order him to decrease dangerous performances...would just tell him to take care of himself: "He is actually careful; however, sometimes the storyline requires it. No one wants accidents to happen!" Ben Wong, who was also on set, had a horse-riding scene. He expressed that he got injured from falling off the back of a horse before...a haunting traumatic experience.

Personal Note: Can't wait to watch Bobby and Esther on screen again! :D

Happy holidays, everyone! :)

"My Date with a Vampire" Tidbits

Chan Sap Sam, the scriptwriter of the first and second installments of "My Date with a Vampire" (also Joey Meng's husband), posted some interesting tidbits about the two series on his Weibo earlier.

MDWAV

- When filming the last shot of Yamamoto Ichifu turning into a skeleton in the scene where he was killed by Yamamoto Mirai on the balcony in "My Date with a Vampire", it was discovered that the prop skull was nowhere to be found. With the loss of time searching for the prop, the director came up with a solution and quickly finished filming the shot. The director used the femur in place of the skull, and said, "The skull of the vampire is obviously different from the human!"

- The Ma family's 'No Tear Curse' was originally the 'Kiss Curse'. The female Ma member would lose her supernatural powers if she were kissed; however, in order to make the storyline more romantic and more exceptional, it was changed so that they could not cry.

- The name Wong Chun Chun was derived from a Thailand restaurant. The name was picked for its ordinariness and its earthiness. Also, it was fairly easy for people to remember.

- The idea of Ma Siu Ling's quote, "Don't talk to me about interest. Just talk to me about money!", came from the Japanese TV series "Homeless Girl". The female lead's quote was "Don't pity me. Just give me money!"

- The eye colour of vampires to distinguish the different levels of the vampire was actually forced upon. Before the filming began, it was decided that the eye colour of the vampires were to be red; however, coloured eye contacts were not in trend during that time in Hong Kong, and the sponsor had limited stock. It was only by using other colours that they had enough coloured eye contacts, so Chan Sap Sam came up with using different eye colours to distinguish the different levels of the vampires.

- When "Vampire I" went to Japan to do location filming, due to inadequate resources, the producer, director, assistant director, stunt choreographer, makeup artist, etc. had to play chauffeur, police officer, tourist, corpse, etc. In order to save a thousand plus dollars on the production fee, Chan Sap Sam also made a cameo, dubbing for one line of dialogue, which can only be heard in the Cantonese version.

- The origin of Wong Chun Chun's line, "Don't love me. Don't bite me!", is slightly R-rated. It came from Chan Sap Sam's male friend's real life experience. His friend met a new girlfriend, and in the heat of the night, the girl said something similar to this line in his ear...nothing happened that night. His friend and the new girlfriend broke up peacefully shortly after that. Love's promise is never easy, even for never-aging and never-dying vampires.

- In "Vampire II", Saeki Hinako was invited to play Fujihara Sadako. During the watching of playbacks, it was discovered that there were some problems with a majority of the scenes and that they needed to be re-filmed, but the production costs have already reached their limit, so they could not pay any additional fees. When Saeki Hinako knew about this, she flew to Hong Kong to re-film the problematic scenes at no extra cost.

Personal Note: Have always been a fan of ATV's early '90s series, such as "Who Is the Winner?", "Mythical Crane and Magical Needle", "Gun and Glory", "Heroic Legends of the Yang's Family", "Vampire Expert", "I Have a Date with Spring", etc. However, "My Date with a Vampire" is my absolute all-time favourite!

"Vampire" was the first of its kind in Hong Kong television, and ATV was the first to do it! ;)

"The Blessing Song" - Linda Chung

幸福歌 《幸福摩天輪》 主题曲 - 鍾嘉欣

作曲/監製: 鄧智偉
填詞: 林日曦

假使天使 前來問我幸福嗎
能誠實確定的說 我走過是極其幸福的一趟
得到工作 慈祥父母在我旁
良善密友在我旁 那麼快樂地成長

或我成熟了 人學會知足不再妄想
是愛情未滿 明白有時要耐心等半晌

*心很慶幸了 人生很精彩了
落雨也可一個避雨 有天戀愛了再給照料
月滿太好 可照亮我 幸福得不得了
月缺也好 可當為我一直笑

未有人問暖 還是有冬衣給我去穿
夜半時悶了 還是有無數電影可以選

Repeat *

心很慶幸了 仍可聽到心跳
就算跌倒不會在意 有苦水送上最多喝掉
或會碰到 一個伴侶 和數千個幸福的一秒
就快拍到 心裡預設的合照
沒有拍到 只當命裡開玩笑

Artiste Jason Chan attended a Christmas event. He revealed that he is currently busy filming a new series with Wayne Lai and Moses Chan. When asked which female artistes he wanted to collaborate with the most, he said, "Want to try collaborating with Myolie Wu and Tavia Yeung...both are TV queens! (Would you mind filming kiss scenes?) If the storyline requires it, would also not mind. Acting is not real anyway!"

Artiste Kenneth Ma went to Tin Shui Wai to attend a mall event. When discussing his rumour with Rebecca Zhu, he said, "Definitely a misunderstanding. At that time, there was another person there. (Rebecca said that she just had a breakup during the beginning of filming 'Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles'?) Really? Don't know. At first, she was rather quiet. Ron Ng and I kept chatting with her. She improved more as filming went on". Kenneth revealed that he has more jobs during Christmas and New Year's time. He said, "Right now, making money is the priority. Want flat prices to fall back and then buy a flat. Lost a six-figure sum when buying stocks in the past. Still feel that buying a flat has enduring value".

- 20-episode romance series.
- In April, there will be location filming in Malaysia (mostly in Penang but also in Kuala Lumpur).
- Ruco Chan will play Luk Kung Chi (陸恭梓). He seems unrestrained on the surface, but actually has experience at heart. On the surface, he is a tour guide in Malaysia who is frivolous and a sweet-talker, but he is actually a Hong Kong music producer. Because of his breakup with Elaine Yiu, he goes to Malaysia. Later, he meets Aimee Chan, but their relationship is not able to develop accordingly because of a knot in the heart. He will have a romantic storyline with Aimee, Lin Xia Wei, and Elaine.
- Aimee will play Law Sik Sik (羅式適), a travel agency director. She has a cheerful and forthright personality. She is not a strong woman, but she has a great sense of justice. She was originally Mat Yeung's fiancée; after breaking up with him, setbacks in romance cause her to go to Malaysia. Because of previous travel agency services, she met Ruco; after encountering setbacks in romance, they meet again. She and Ruco become an arguing pair and develop feelings. She and Tony Hung have a sisterly friendship.
- Lin Xia Wei will play Ching Chin Chan (程展禛), a trainee pastry chef. She is a silly girl who comes to like people easily. Because Ruco cared for her before, she fell in love with him. Later, she quickly comes to like Tony Hung. She likes to make pastries, and becomes Tony's pupil. Later, she learns about Tony's crush on Aimee, so she films a clip, threatening him to fulfill three of her wishes.
- Tony will play Chin Chun (錢進), a chef. He is very charming in the kitchen, but is very shy in real life, and is frequently picked on by Samantha and Aimee. He has always had a crush on Aimee. He and Aimee grew up together. Although he has a simple and honest personality, he is well-liked by females, and females often get close to him. He is Lin Xia Wei's master. He is strict and uses military methods to train Lin Xia Wei. He and Lin Xia Wei will have love sparks.
- Samantha will play Wong Kei Ying (黃淇英), Elaine's good friend. She has a bold and unconstrained personality. She and Mat have a secret relationship; their intimate clip was exposed at Mat and Elaine's wedding, causing the two to break up.
- Mat will play Ching Chin Pok (程展博), Lin Xia Wei's elder brother. He is Aimee's fiancé; in front of her, he is a very gentlemanly and is very considerate, but he is actually a player who toys with feelings, having a relationship with Samantha behind his fiancée's back.
- Elaine will play Hong Yi Kiu (康以蕎), a singer-songwriter. She and Ruco dated before. When her career is slipping, she reconciles with her composer ex-boyfriend, using his influence and talent to push her career by getting him to write songs for her.

"Friendly Fire" Premieres with High Ratings

CREDIT IF REPOSTED

TVB's two new prime time series, "Missing You" and "Friendly Fire", premiered last night. "Missing" averaged 28 points, and peaked at 31 points (approximately 1,800,000 viewers). "Friendly" premiered with an average of 29 points, and peaked at 31 points (approximately 1,860,000 viewers). The Commissions Authority received one complaint for each series, saying that "Missing" had too much product placement, while the plot of "Friendly" was boring. However, Toby Chan's sexy, cleavage-baring scene in which she was enticing Michael Tse was praised by many netizens.

Complaints About Being Unsatisfied with Raymond Lam Losing TV King

Yesterday, TVB received an additional 11 complaints about being unsatisfied with the results of TVB's anniversary awards, including five complaints about being unsatisfied with Raymond Lam not being able to win TV king.

Personal Note: The complaints for the series seem as though they're switched around..."Friendly Fire" definitely had more noticeable product placement.... :P

The ratings aren't really high, but should be considered quite good for this time slot.
