    October 27, 2009 by barbara

    I have been invited to a birthday party next weekend.  Time for me to get some fat burner as I know I would be eating a lot of good food at the party *grins* It is the birthday of a 9 year old boy and I have been shopping around for a birthday gift.  I really like the One Kid Band from  It is colourful and modernly designed.  This musical band helps to stimulate hand-eye coordination and increases the children’s concentration skills.  Since the birthday boy likes to play drums, I think this One Kid Band is the perfect gift.

  4. What Denims Are Best For Real Women

    October 26, 2009 by barbara

    I am shopping for a pair of denim now.  One that would make me look like I have just taken the best weight loss pills recently *grins*  I found one that I like from Gap. It is the Perfect Boot Jeans in dark wash. It has a contoured waistband that shapes to the body, lifts the seat, and eliminates the gap at the back of the waist. Boot jeans are slightly fared at the legs and hence make the hips look slimmer.  They also minimizes the curves of the thighs and derriere.

  7. Watch Beyond The Realm Of Conscience Online

    October 23, 2009 by barbara


    I am currently watching Beyond The Realm Of Conscience online now. What a long title eh?  It is one of the grand production by TVB this year.  I have been waiting to watch this costume drama ever since I saw the previews. I like the veteran casts such as Michelle Yim, Suzanna Kwan, Kara Hui and a few others.  This is the first time that I am seeing Tavia Yeung being portrayed as a villain.   Who is your favourite character?


    Imperial Household Bureau is responsible for managing and directing all household services to the Emperor and the Imperial family in Tang Dynasty. It is composed of four departments, namely Jewels, Attire, Food and Furnishings. Lau Sam-ho (Charmaine Sheh) and Yiu Kam-ling (Tavia Yeung) are introduced into the bureau in their tender age and brought up in the disciplines of the palace. The two girls are diligent. Yuen Tsui-wan (Susanna Kwan), Head of the Jewels, and Chung Suet-ha (Michelle Yim), Head of the Attire, are both very fond of Ho for she is a kind-hearted young girl. Soon, they start fighting for the fellowship of Ho.

    Ho always remembers her mother’s words left to her before she passed away, that she was told, “Doing good deeds, speaking good words, showing good will.” She lives her life of being gracious and kind-hearted in the palace. On the other hand, Ling believes her survival in palace is achieved through cruel and calculating tactics. She cheats and schemes her way to the top and finally becomes the concubine. Though she realizes that Ho has fallen in love with the chess master Ko Hin-yeung (Kevin Cheng), her jealousy still arouses by Ho’s attraction to the Emperor Lee Yi (Moses Chan). Fearing that she is losing power, she ruthlessly makes up a false allegation against Ho for murdering the Empress (Mary Hon) and condemns her to death. No matter how clever she is to scheme, things do not go the way she planned. By using a strong comparison of the two distinctive characters, Ho and Ling, the message of the drama is that “benevolence” is the only way to gain final victory.
