My Hua Qiangu/The Journey Of Flower photobooks

I received my HQG Fan Arts photobook today and I have to say, I am in love with it. Quality is excellent because the originals were all huge. A few small mistakes with alignment and text is sorta big but other than that, wow.

The cover is hardcover, size is 11 inches X 8.5 inches landscape. Price is not cheap. Bought with coupon at Groupon  PLUS 8 additional pages still had to top up RM30 plus. So worth it! This is a keeper even if got some alignment mistakes.

琅琊榜 / Lang Ya Bang

English title
Nirvana in Fire


Broadcast period
2015-09-19 to 2015-10-15

Huge list here.

Gorgeous series, interesting story but very very convulated plot. The dialogue is very very hard to understand, this ain't The Journey of Flower so I am waiting for English fansub. Acting's credible, unfortunately dubbed where the long trailer, it wasn't. But perhaps it is still Hu Ge's voice. So far this is high quality production marred by one annoying fact; too may slow mo for fight scenes. This series doesn't need such gimmick and I felt it jumped a bit. I am not sure.

Anyway will post more when I watch again with English fansub.

Ok, it is live now!

Ok, starting tomorrow I will be doing a nightly Episodic Thoughts for TVB's Captain of Destiny aka Cheung Po-Tsai aka that Ruco Chan series. So bookmark the URL below and just check in perhaps the day after. If all goes well, new episodic thought will be posted before the next episode airs. If it is really that good, I might even finish my writing by midnight the same night. May be reposted in

Your call! Opinion or Episodic Thoughts for Captain Of Destiny?

In case you are curious, you must be wondering "Funn, where the heck are you?"

Are you?

Well I am still here. Since Captain Of Destiny is FINALLY showing, I have a reason to sit down to watch TVB series again. And since it stars Ruco Chan and a newbie that I like which is Grace Chan (a whole lotta Chans!), I am thinking of recapping it Episodic Thoughts style. I know I said I will but it's a lot of work to do for every episode. For The Journey Of Flower, I stopped at Episode 38 because I couldn't take the editing anymore. For TVB I know if it says 100 episodes, it will be 100 episodes. No uncertainty, just a matter of how good is the story and acting and pacing. I am sure this series has a lot of talking points for me AND commenting points for you. I mean you gotta participate, if not I don't know who am I recapping to. So my question is do you want me to? I will be reposting in Jaynestars. However if not, I will stick to Opinion based format, no recap, just rant like "WHAT THE HELL?!??!?!". Recapping though requires discipline, nightly on weekdays and full concentration.

I've been reading a lot of TVB bloggers are gone. Almost all full recaps these days are special treatment reserved for K dramas which does get on my nerves. So I suppose that I kept doing Episodic Thoughts for TVB dramas (and half for C Dramas) is my way of one up to the K dramas recaps which are great by the way but too many. 

The last FULL episodic thoughts I really did was for Three Kingdoms RPG. Man, I took down notes, I recap faithfully, etc etc etc. I am not so into writing reviews these days. I think it is time to implement my shorter reviews which I've been wanting to for a long time. With Episodic Thoughts, I can talk more on story and performances.

Here is his profile

What is he in? 
Here is his filmography

You his fan? 
Sort of.

From whence? 
The Glamorous Imperial Concubine aka Qing Shi Huang Fei where I first saw him in HD TV and he was the sulky sullen unhappy angry miserable Liu Liancheng and I fell in love with him and was convinced HD is the way to go only if you're Wallace Huo. He was absolutely gorgeous (thank you to Ruby Lin for the beautiful angles and costumes!!) You can read my "love letter" to him in my review.

Got other posts about him? 
Yes, this is in fact part 3 of my comments. You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here (Archive Blog).

More resources on him?
Chinese sites, can't help you. English ones, go to Jaynestars but be prepared to vomit blood since more concentrated on gossips and rumours. For more indepth stuff, go to his English fan forum, Forums.

Huajae Company at Weibo which is indirectly Wallace's weibo account (he doesn't have one officially and the day he opens one is when aliens taken over him) issued an indirect denial on recent relationship rumours with whoever he is rumoured with, specifically Liying and all those so called exposes.

@ Huajaecompany: The one that Hua Ge is in love with is this, therefore he is now in a relationship with it. Others so called relationships are pure fiction. 

There you have it. He rarely issues any statements personally,  not even on the Viann "one night stand-third party-hotel trysts" rumours. Usually it is Huajae Company that does it and even they're  not quite actively denying. But let's put into perspective. He is single and even if he's not, his other half is not Tang Yan or Zhao Liying.

Anyway he is now into cycling it seems. I am however not sure that IS his bicycle though.
