  1. Denim Is Back

    April 22, 2010 by barbara

    I was chatting with a friend last night about the prototype 37-c reviews which I had read earlier and then our conversation was diverted to fashion.  She asked me if I have seen the clothes at Forever 21.  Well, I haven’t checked them out until she told me about it yesterday.   Looks like denim is back.  I remember having a similar denim jacket about 10 years ago.  Somehow I cannot remember where is my jacket now. I better do some spring cleaning in my closet this weekend.


  2. Watch A Fistful of Stances Final Episode Online

    April 20, 2010 by barbara

    I know I’ve blogged about watching A Fistful of Stances online earlier but guess what?  I have yet to watch this drama.  I have been so busy lately that I don’t have the time to sit in front of my laptop to watch it.   There have been so many good reviews about this drama and even the final 2 episodes were a bit of a tear jerker.  A Fistful of Stances is also one of the best dramas in 2010 as voted by many netizens.  Like I said earlier, this drama has very good casts and my favorites are Kara Hui, Kelvin Cheng, Kenneth Ma and Dominic Lam.  I better make some time to watch this drama this coming weekend.  Nothing is better than having some cappuccinos in one of the promotional mugs which I received recently with some cookies while enjoying a good drama.

  3. How To Organize Your Cords

    I love this KableFlag Cord Labels.  They are the most simple and efficient way to identify the cables.  These adhesive-free PVC tag which wraps around the cords allow us to see the cables easily.  Kableflags are available blank so that we can create our own custom labels with a permanent marker or you can also get pre-printed ones which comes in a pack of 10.  With them, you never have to unplug the wrong cables again.

  7. A Fistful of Stances Online

    April 6, 2010 by barbara

    A Fistful of Stances is a 25-episode pre-modern drama which I am very looking forward to watching online.  From the title, you would know that this drama is all about martial arts.  What attracted me to want to watch it is the cast.  Kevin Cheng is one of my favorite actors.  So is Kenneth Ma.  I like Dominic Lam too and I am glad that this drama has a very line-up of actors and actresses.   The female casts are Selina Li, Natalie Tong, Yuen Qiu, Tavia Yeung and more.  I can’t wait to get started on this drama.  Have you watched it?

    Kevin Cheng as Koo Yu Cheung
    Kenneth Ma as Koo Yu Tong
    Natalie Tong as Ying Ngam Ming
    Nancy Wu as Chow Mui Mui
    Yuen Qiu as Au Yeung Wai-Lan
    Tavia Yeung as Au Yeung Wai-Lan (Young version)
    Dominic Lam as Wing Tak
    Jacky Heung as Wing Man Kwan
    Shirley Yeung
    Selena Li

    Au Yeung Wai-Lan is the owner of a martial arts school. She was recently reunited with her eldest son, Koo Yu Cheung, after years of separation.

    Upon Yu Cheung’s return home, he was shocked to learn that his younger brother, Koo Yu Tong, is suffering from a critical illness. What is more shocking for Yu Cheung was that their father was murdered by Wing Tak, the owner of a medicinal company as well as the bitter rival of the Koo family.

    Yu Cheung never liked kung-fu but has always shown potential for the arts. His potential in kung-fu shine even brighter when he takes on Wing Man Kwan, Wing Tak’s son.

    Wai-Lan places all her hopes on Yu Cheung to take on the Wing family. She even taught Yu Cheung a special set of kung-fu skills that was created by the Koo family. Wai-Lan even registers Yu Cheung for the Guangdong Boxing Championship, and as fate would have it, Yu Cheung’s opponent at the tournament happens to be Man-Kwan!

    Yu Cheung achieved tremendous success in martial arts but his success also makes him lose his bearings. He is caught in a love triangle with Ying Ngan Ming (Wai-Lan’s apprentice) and Chow Mui Mui, his dream girl. Yu Cheung’s confusion in love as well as his exhaustion with kung-fu caused him to fall in the final tournament.

    Will Yu Cheung sort out his problems in time to save the Koo family?

  10. Go Green With Recycled Stretch Bag

    March 24, 2010 by barbara

    I came across this really cool bag made from 100% recycled advertising campaign billboards yesterday.  You know, recycled stuff have never been this chic.  This stitch shoulder bag is made without any glue. Can you believe it?  Inspired by the strength and symmetry found in nature, it can support up to 33 lbs. You can put just about anything in this bag such as groceries, flowers and even your tuxedo shoes. It is available in the colors of recycled billboard or natural brown leather.  I prefer the brown leather one. If you are interested, swing by for more information.
