YI SHU XI LIE 64 - MEI YOU YUE LIANG DE WAN SHANG XIAO SHUO(1)September 14, 2005 underrated
she had a sharp tongue and a prodigious sense of humuor then. she liked to laugh and she liked to make others laugh. it is asking too much of the humorist to expect him - or her - to keep a good thing to themselves when they think of it. and, heaven knows, it is hard to be funny without being sometimes a little malicious. there is not much a kick in the milk of human kindness. in this story she has a keen appreciation of the absurdity of others, their pretensions, their affectations and their insincerities.
YI SHU XI LIE 168 - JING HUA YUAN XIAO SHUOSeptember 14, 2005 wonderfully readable
she deals with the commonplace things, 'the involvements, feelings and characters of ordinary life', in this story borrowed some incredible famous male characters from somewhere and intertwine with the development of the story. nothing very much happens in her books and yet when you come to the bottom of a page, you eagerly turn it to learn what will happen next. nothing and very much does and again you eagerly turn the page. the novelist who has the power to achieve this has the most precous gift a novelist cna possess.
YI SHU XI LIE 234 - XUE JI XIAO SHUOSeptember 14, 2005 bright and beautiful
adoptation is a serious and heavy issue. this is seen as all things bright and beautiful in the writer's point of view. i was once asked by a western mother: i am afraid my child will want to search for his roots one day and go back to where he is from and it will be complicated and painful for us .... however let it stay as all creatures great and small as this is what the lord god made them all ....
Yi Shu Xi Lie 239 - Ping Pang ( Xiao Shuo)September 14, 2005 art of giving and receiving
basically very yi shu style. it is a materialistic world, love happens and the characters involved dwelling with money ..... she has too much sense, and too sharp a humor at times, to be romantic, and she is interested not in the uncommon, but in the common. she makes it uncommon by the keenness of her observation, her ivory and her playful wit. there is something to be said for the simple people who look upon marriage as a satisfactory conclusion to a work of fiction!
Teresa (UMG Reissue Series)August 29, 2005 still refreshing
disagree a little with chwee as this album reflects lots of her less known songs and these are the songs we are enlightened of the way she sings with so much feelings and love. have enough of her collected greatest hits and this kind of album offers another kind of aprreciation on the music she has created.
Actress Personal AffairsMay 26, 2005 creative
this is a reasonably well produced album as the first song is the title track of somewhere in time, she reprised this music and made this into a song. i must say she lacks originality in english songs - unlike tony, i think she fairs fantastic in chinese songs and also she explores in her music and brings us to a different world altogether and that we are still waiting for her new music. a real and brave diva in modern times. recent concerts did so so as she is a real studio creative music maker and should not give up. by the way, when is yeasia replenishing her old stocks? still waiting.
QIONG YAO - JIN ZHAN HUAMay 26, 2005 like a dream in the sunshine
highly recommended for teenage girls, esp. living in the overseas as these stories reflect life in asia and the writer artistically writes such simple stories in grace.
QIONG YAO - WO SHI YI PIAN YUNMay 26, 2005 classy
this book should be given respect and read with ease and in its original version. i wander as a cloud. story aside, this book is tailor made for brigitte lin and look at the book cover! the other 2 male characters were also lovers of lin at that time. it is not a difficult book to be read in chinese, all chinese should read this book with love as it is written with love and for love.
QIONG YAO QUAN JI 8 - CHUANMay 26, 2005 stylish
earlier novel and has been made into a movie, qiong yao is well known for her style of writing, she has definitely left a mark in the recent chinese literature history. she has written famous so many artistes - zhen zhen, brigitte lin, lin fong chiao, lu siew lin, liu xue hua ..... each with their own beauty and aura. every respect and honor deserved in the chinese literature scene.

CAI LAN - YI QU YEMay 26, 2005 days of wine, women and roses
little cai - has such a wide scope of different knowledge and experiences, he has only written more these days. direct, down to earth and warm. he has a good family background, well educated and speaks so many different languages - japanese? how, when and why on earth did he learn this language? enjoy his exciting and unusual experiences.
Moon Fascinating, Bird Sweet (Taiwan Version)May 15, 2005 well done
it is not brigette lin, give xie ling ling a chance - she did well here and not forgetting the beautiful songs sung by fong fei fei. i like to story at that time.
Cloud Of Romance (DVD) (Taiwan Version)May 15, 2005 fantasic casts
this is the only movie with 2 great leading male casts - charlie chin and chin han and in real life they both had intimate relationship with brigette lin - not great acting talents of lin, however it is great to watch how she struggles between the 2 men. we saw that the 2 men didn't meet in the movie itself, neither did they in real life(?) great - not the storyline or anything, however for the great casts.
The Wild Goose On The Wing (Taiwan Version)May 15, 2005 love story
if you have not watched any of qiong yao or brigette lin movies, give this a shot. back in those days, we could watch 3 such movies - all in one go! romantic story with a good ending.
Ting Yuan Shen Shen (Vol.1-40) (End) (China Version)
Ting Yuan Shen Shen (Vol.1-40) (End) (China Version) DVD Region All(3)Our Price: US$53.99May 15, 2005 tear jerking
one of the earlier works of lau with chiong yau. she did it very well with her simple and good acting skills, can never forget the scene in a deserted place meeting up with ex-husband .... such mixed feelings of love and hate, forgiving and forgetting. can watch it for a few times.

May 15, 2005 collectable album
personally not a fan of her english songs. she can do better than doing cover versions, however her efforts should not be left unnoticed - she has done so many different things, was surprised that she even sings in cantonese. this is a compilation of her good songs, her feelings days with emi has a better standard in terms of diction, however her interpretation of english songs is not bad too. wonder when she is releasing some good creative music? lots of friends and fans waiting, no english cover version please.
Faye Wong's Story (Book + 2CDs)May 15, 2005 great buy
faye wong has talents and she has done different things in both her music and acting career. she has her own interperetation about style and definitely has it. here, in htis album - a collection of her greatest hits, altho' i must say i like her covering teresa's songs - this album tells us what she has done and what she can do.

May 15, 2005 artistic
wong kar wei with a fantastic cast. it is good to see the movie divas in their much earlier days and how they improve on their acting talents as time passes. worth collecting.
Leslie Cheung Best + Music BoxMay 15, 2005 great songs
not just only a pretty face. leslie can sing and he can sing different songs and sing well too. some like his relaxed style, some his ever seeking for new inspiration and creativity. good for recollecting old memories and as for the newer generation, there is something we can learn from his creative artistic style, not outdated.
