Tribal Queen X Native Hymn: Ethic Print

was collecting these during early Aug

because i was seriously fascinated by

a couple of prints during summer collection

but can’t exactly name out what these prints are

 

time flies

now that most of the window displays

have been substituted into

something navy blue or army green

 

native print?

ethnic print?

tribal print?

 

or you happen to know which ethnic

does it actually belong to?

as long as they got preserved

*peace sign*

 

p.s.

these names are not the exact categorizations

some refer to the ethnic group or even

region in general

while others are the method of printing

 

eg: chinese print

there are perhaps 101 techniques under the broad categories

 

at least I can now identify

the zig-zag print as Aztec

or wait a minute

isn’t it Mayan?

 

come on, these are two different civilizations, right?

ahh…!

顛覆歷史 X 嘆為觀止:太極1從零開始

彭于晏 vs 方子敬 太極. 02jpg

什么情況!

什么情況!

什么情況!

 

字幕翻譯為:

what the hell?

what the hell?

what the hell?

 

為何彭于晏

一句對白也沒有

 

之前聽說

里頭英文對白

因為不夠英國腔

所以被配音了

就有點小失望

畢竟真的很想聽他講英文

 

其實英文對白也不過那兩句

而且他還特地練過

要把美國腔轉換成正統的英國調調哦

 

這就算了

誰知道

哇塞。。連中文也被配音了

為什么

 

很悲慘叻

那種感覺就是

就算演得再好,表情七情上臉

一開口講話就感覺怪怪的

很難把彭于晏和方子敬

劃上一個等號

 

而且須要平反的一點是

方子敬根本不是一個大壞蛋

 

從小被村里的人叫做“奶驢”

抬不起頭來

那兩個該死的表哥還欺負他

暗中搞砸他的宏圖大計

被洋人和貪官利用

才剛要發展的情人死了

被打得遍體鱗傷 還要入獄

 

算了

至少他沒被打死

第二 第三集 還會有(不說話的)彭于晏

方子敬,你可以再壞一點!

彭于晏 vs 方子敬 太極

 

更多更多的方子敬vs彭于晏

Big Baddy X Cute Eddie: Tai Chi Zero @ Venice

 


畫一個分隔線

既然已經進場了

總不能都為了方子敬“憂郁”到最后

 

老實講

這部片的拍攝手法

確實打破了

傳統功夫片的框框

 

電玩元素 X 漫畫插圖

融合在武打片

確實有出乎預料的火花

 

以幽默

來敘述一個本來很嚴肅的故事

 

顛覆到來

場景的設計還很精致

尤其是

祠堂的擺設

陳家村的縮影

還有洋鬼子部分,

那些怪物機器的設計

太極1從零開始 01 機器設計 - Taichi Zero Machines Design

 

美術設計:一欄

有很熟悉的葉錦添

就是憑《臥虎藏龍》

獲得奧斯卡金像獎最佳藝術指導的那位

 

眾星云集

很喜歡

七十年代武俠電影

那種介紹人物出場的方式

 

除了大明星的陸續登場

有幾個很出色的配角

 

馮淬帆叔叔

他明明飾演一個很正經八百的高祖

就是那種主持祠堂會議的老祖宗

但是他一出場

還沒講話。。

結果戲院就傳來一陣笑聲

 

還有那個挺帥氣的豆腐佬

不對 是豆腐哥

叫作 申思

才是真正的

陳氏太極拳第十二代傳人

太極1 楊露禪 vs 豆腐哥

 

 

溫馨提示:

舒淇小姐在故事前頭的

“很久很久以前”就掛掉了

如果你是專程為她入場的話

 

就像我

專程為彭于晏入場

但我保證

最后這部片,

不會讓你失望

 

梁家輝的中文好像也是配音

但我記得在《十月圍城》

他中文講得不錯

但 Angelababy 的部分卻是原音

太偏心了吧

 

作為一名女性觀眾

我必須承認

她美得真的有點完美無瑕

演技也不爛

尤其是看過了《第一次》

絕對不是那些人口中的花瓶

 

梁家輝的陳師父

和方子敬沒有太多對手戲

更加期待《寒戰》的

這對警察父子

Tony Leung vs Eddie Peng

 

拜托

八成彭于晏又不能說話了

粵語配音

彭于晏 - 寒戰 - 李家俊 Eddie Peng Cold War

 

而且

又要挨打了

彭于晏 寒戰

情抒 X 深觸:初讀亦舒

1986 年《不要放棄春天》

上星期

讀了人生的第一本亦舒

看標題大概可以猜到主題

 

接著

看了《五月與十二月》

是忘年之戀或

諸如此類的懸殊的關系

 

感覺還不錯

而且整整26歲的故事

讀起來其實還挺貼切今天的生活

 

原因如下:

I 段落很精簡,情節既不拖泥帶水也沒肉麻

II 時尚元素:歐洲旅行,名牌包包,紅酒法國菜

III 主角大多是精明獨立的職業女性

IV 男女之間的情情塌塌,由“史”至終都大同小異

V 除了時尚,發掘了一些純粹我個人也剛巧喜歡的元素

 

例如:

《我就是我》

「你在英國學會喝沙士?」他問。

「不,」我老實答:「我在英國學會說粗話。至于沙士,其實就是ROOTBEER,你知道花生漫畫中的史諾比,他就專門喝沙士。」

《追求記》

我說:「不是我乘虛而入,我記得你喜歡讀亞嘉泰姬斯蒂的小說——我們去看一套偵探片吧。

「不,」她更正我,「我只是喜歡在乘火車時候看亞嘉泰姬斯蒂的小說,你認錯了,這其中分別很大。」

 

所以我會覺得

如果我(未來)的男人也

懂得這些東西該不錯哦

一起看偵探片

會是一件很浪漫的事

 

說真的

《放棄春天》的那些女主角

心態很符合本人現在的心態

雖然我距離她們的經濟獨立

還有好一大段的距離

 

孤獨何嘗不是一種享受

偶爾的渴望是無可否認的事

但有手有腳的

自己寵愛自己

也可以過得很好

 

只是有時候

別人有的 你沒有

很遜哦

 

好象

一個獨身在玩泥沙的小孩

也很自得其樂

 

突然公園跑來了另一個孩子

他有一輛腳踏車

接著,女孩也走來了

帶來了洋娃娃

 

這時候

玩泥沙的小孩

也開始會羨慕,想要有自己的玩具

雖然在其他孩子來之前

她其實很享受一個人的泥沙游戲

 

一間六個人的女生公寓

身為唯一沒有玩具的小孩

 

看著有其他人的男朋友們登門到訪

兩口子在廚房做飯

或是

女生圍在一塊

討論各自的男朋友

 

那種感覺。。算了

難免有點吃不到葡萄,說葡萄酸

 

哈但誰猜到

每天窩在房間 很認真

好像都在做作業的

那個孤僻女

原來也偷偷看起愛情小說來了

 

會寫這篇文

其實是因為剛剛發現

昨天 9月25日

是亦舒小姐的生日

Happy birthday! 

亦舒

 

多了一個

女性的崇拜對象

on top of “亞嘉泰姬斯蒂

 

你看 你看

我絕對才不是

只把帥哥們當偶像的外貌協會

 

現實如果太慘不忍睹

沉浸在小說的世界里

也小小滿足了

心靈的需要

 

這樣說來

也比較容易明白

對那些瘋狂投入在

非常人所能了解的嗜好的那些狂徒

 

自己愛自己

畢竟也有缺角嘛

左手怎么也拖不牢右手

心情不好的時候,發泄的方法太多

或許還不如一個安靜的擁抱

 

噢 No

別說了

莫名其妙的

有好想哭的感覺

繼續玩我的泥沙去

Simple Tool X Easy2Do: Mini Fondue

initial inspiration

Chocolate fondue gift set

 

alternatively 

looking into this sort

but there are so many sorts indeed

aromatherapy ceramic pot

 

then

erm..

decided to assemble a set on my own

the fun thing about D-I-Y

is the process of mix and match

and the pending excitement whether

it will actually work

 

three individual items:

- the butterfly fondue rack

- the blue fondue pot

- the mini tray

homemade mini fondue

 

the mini tray

initially thought is that

it fits the “fondue pot” as a cover

but at the same time

it can serve as a topping tray

rainbow rice, chocolate rice etc

 

and also as the tea light candle stand

to protect the table top and the flame

wait the minute

that’s its initial function right, in the first place

my knowledge in aroma therapy is

practically zero indeed

 

so even if this bound to fail

they make a not-too-bad décor set right

 

melted 2 “columns” of

Lindt 70% cocoa

did not really take that long after all

no pre-heating is required

 

in other words,

woohoo

my homemade fondue set does actually work

marshmallow x dark chocolate fondue

 

somehow marshmallow is the first thing that

came into mind when I thought of making this

 

next time shall buy one of those

ceramic diffuser

and I can actually have duo flavours

double-dip fondue

 

and can experiment with savoury pot

cheese is a must

and as promised

treat the cheese-lover to her dosage of fat

 

and customized spicy one, perhaps

why not?

Follow-Up X Digging-Down: Two Days in Town

I was hesitating whether to come home

over the weekend

then Ms. Manager told me that

if i am

then she may pay me a visit in town

 

when was the last time we met?

not that long ago

few months back in April in Manchester

now it's her turn to pay me a visit back home

Hoodies day

 

okay

sounds good

hence i spent the whole Saturday..

supposedly the itinerary wasn't so

we even included the zoo and some walks

but ended up in malls the whole day

 

and Sunday

as usual, marketing survey with Cheryl

we just did one last week

and yet never get tired of it

although it's almost the same malls

all over again

 

 

Saturday, 22nd Sept

but good thing about marketing survey with her

since she is the manager who is in control

i have to act subtly

not even Zaza survey is allowed

 

but her mom and another friend of hers who came along

we parted and went our own ways

and the ladies spent quite heavily on clothes

 

i found the switching of character quite amusing

for her and the mom,

is the other way round

she is always preventing her mom from buying stuffs

complaining that her mom shops too much

 

but of course the unfair part is that

her mom couldn't do anything about her shopping

since she has done it all in the UK

and not right here back home

 

i spotted this

and was like

gorgeous, this is something i must get

instead of the ice-cream maker next door

oh ya.. the annual kitchen purchase

which is always a little extra-ordinary

Chocolate fondue gift set

 

what can you do whole day in malls

when we are not doing marketing survey?

bookstore, that's where i found this fondue set

Honda roadshow, where is my CRZ??

 

wanted to show her my heart throb

i have that many..

is that one, that one 

but he wasn't around

 

anyway he isn't that important, right

there is better one

we spent like at least 15 minutes

going over all the movie trailers till the end of the year

and for him to appear again

we spent like at least 15 minutes

going over all the movie trailers till the end of the year

Cold War X Hot Guy

this would probably be another date of mine

with Ms. Manager next month

hot Eddie Peng vs Cold War

 

grocery shopping

it's plastic-free Saturday

and two women ended up walking around

with a bottle of cooking Sake and Cloud 9 chocolate

another one with a can of Miso.. luckily in the bag 

then a Root-beer session..

but someone accidentally bought Cornie

P1200695

 

last but not least

surprisingly awesome

i thought they gonna come up with some Mid-Autumn Festival theme

which wouldn't look that good, for sure

Halloween display - Spooky TogetherHalloween display - Spooky Together

Sunday, 23rd Sept

as i have mentioned earlier

almost exactly the same route

all over again

but not under the vigilant surveillance of my manager

the usual routine

 

it's more like a follow up trip

for yesterday and last week

 

Follow Up I: the Mango blazer

if you are a frequent patron of Mango

this is not something unfamiliar

we have been discussing

how this outfit looks great on Kate Moss

but it would turn out shitty on us

anyway, RM 149 is indeed not a bad deal for a blazer like this

The colours available

Kate Moss Mango Fall 2012 Campaign Blue Blazer Envy

 

yesterday

there was a nicer blue

yes, i just wanna show Cheryl that

there's actually a more wearable blue

navy blue, worn on the mannequin

today it was gone

finally found it at the LAST-Piece section

Mango Button Military Blazer

 

but one thing for sure

if i ever buy this 

i gonna do something with the golden button

remove them all

if this sounds a little bit silly

then paint them all black

and sew them back

crazy..

 

Follow-up II: the bandage skirt

Fat Hurts X Curve Cult: Bandage Skirt

the navy blue one i got last week

navy blue bandage skirt

 

and it never escaped my mind of

getting a black one

and i spotted yesterday that

i hope my manager did not catch me doing so

they actually replenished the stock from last week

all sizes are available

and the bundle sales expanded to more than

just the bandage skirts

 

the knotted top was that something new

since last week

white knotted top

 

last week we bought one bandage skirt each

since it is Rm 29.90 each and

two for Rm 39.90

looks like

this weeks we didn't have to share bill anymore, it seemed

P1200714

 

this woman

i reminded her to think twice

about this colour combination

due to this one 5 months back

Pastel Pink X Cartoon Tees: Blue Goes With Everything

by the way,

don't you realize  

my balding issue has improved

told cha, it's a seasonal thingy

not permanent!!

two pink-black dresses

 

i have worn this at least 1,2,3.. times

hers is..what??

reserved for Lunar New Year 2013

 

Follow Up III: the Fondue set

it's ain't that great after all

for the price of Rm 59.90

therefore i decided to switch to a totally different department

looking for the ultimate alternative

aromatic ceramic pot

 

Follow Up IV: Birthday Gift

so many birthdays within this week

19 Sep: Her Highness Atillah

she actually likes the gifts i got her last week

at least she did not show that she hate them

pink chopsticks x baby blue cup

 

subsequently

20 Sep: my Mom

21 Sep: my Dad

you may throw stones at me if you like

i actually did not buy anything for them

since i think would be quite pointless

using their money to buy them birthday gifts

but at least i should have done something right

other than text message greetings 

 

24 Sep

which is like in 3 minutes

Jazmine Ng's birthday

first glance, based on third parties' comments 

this is something i always wear

but in mini version

happy meal x banana split tee

 

i know for sure the rest of the family would complain

why should i spread the “fading-dirty”look to her

but as her only aunty

i think i really hold the responsibility to

switch her taste from what she is always wearing right now

no!!!!!!

P1200737

 

she have been ordering food from my favourite Baron Funburger's

now that she owns the whole happy meal set

ha.. we can do an exchange

hers is even better, since it comes with drink and fries

Baron VonFunburger's tee 

Follow Up V: Halloween display

looking even lovelier at night

no.. it's supposed to be spooky

i just came to realize

don't you agree that

the shirt in the previous photo is pretty Halloween too

Halloween Spooky displayHalloween pumpkins display

 

Loots of the day:

the bandage skirt is something in mind

since the navy one was a perfect fit

the knotted shirt is something in mind (too)

i mean.. i have some knotted shirts

self-knotted but all,

majority of them are cartoon tees

bandage skirt x knotted shirt

 

on the way to home-decor department

in quest for the Fondue mission

we accidentally bought something

which are not so sinful, i supposed

even frying pan came in limited edition

and it's all green beneath

aha.. bingo

and this shall makes a

belated birthday gift for my mom

Tefal green frying pan

 

almost towards the end of the trip

i realized

what happened to all the ten bucks i had

they had all gone missing

looking at the bags of loots

what did i expect

they have all been materialized into something else

 

exactly

i like the word MATERIALIZE

converting money into something REAL and USEFUL

 

whenever my purse gets thicker

it's not due to the fact that money flows in faster

it's always because i have materialized the money

 

so..

it's still best

not to bring along any money

 

what happened to the Fondue quest?

check out the next post

good night
