花千骨 aka Hua Qiangu aka the name of the heroine aka errr... Flowers Of A Thousand Bones? Blossoming Thousand Bones? Like very morbid title?

54 episodes/ OMG.

See here. But seriously, this is a super tragic story of teaching us when to not fall in love. For example, never fall for the girl who is destined to destroy you or rather be your "broomstick". As the girl, never fall for a man in a position of being righteous and will destroy you being the demon incarnate. In short,  this is a tragedy but the writer wrote too many alternate endings. Sometimes, I suppose the author must learn to let go. Look at JK Rowling and how she lets her love go.

Showing 2 episodes per week, if you're in China, switch on the TV. But we are not in China, and so where do you watch this highly anticipated series? Not TVB! TVB is busy with bosoms. 

Plenty. Just google the name and voila!

Video quality is ok. This is a fan community subbing effort and from what I can see, decent effort, not bad for being so fast, usually accorded to K and J-dramas. But weird is ep 4 looks like ep 3 contents so frankly I am confused. (I got confused because in Youtube somehow ep 5 became ep 4!!). Watch here, Click Play Now, click the episode no. Another at youtube with same Eng sub. Better follow this because every week 2 episodes and so this one is consistent. 

Mandarin, dubbed for most actors with dubbing voice and NO ENGLISH SUBTITLES (not official subtitles) but has Chinese subtitles.

As at : Ep 16 (Uncut)
Available for download : Eps 1 - 9,11, 10*, 12-16*

* Subtitles not 100% completed and I will upload complete subtitle file as separate download. Why I post it first so that you won't miss too many episodes, and the subtitles are usually about 93% or more complete.


I am not sure which episode is this fanart is from but I found the GIF file. I mean it is just hair combing but why does it look so beautiful or rather he looks so beautiful? The hair looks real by the way. Can't fault the hair and make up of this series.

I think this short scene nearly broke ... ok maybe not but it did cause quite a meltdown amongst fans. Do you believe he is more fleshed out in this series which is I believe filmed a year ago or so than he is now where he is back to his skinny self? Too thin. I thought he looked so much better with flesh but so many roles demand he be skinny. Come on writers, write him a character where he isn't pale and skinny!

And the following is HQG's version... surely imagination ran wild because he was wearing pants and this version... stopped right there! Seriously cute scene.

[O] Ruco Chan / 陳展鵬 [Actor] : What I discover about Ruco Chan ...[PART 2]

This is part 2 of my post listing my (sometimes very obvious) discovery about anything Ruco Chan. Part 1 was getting too long but is still an interesting read for new or old fans. That post is still very active in terms of comments. 

Not to be confused with Ruco Chan, in pictures and Ruco Chan, in his own words.

Part 2 of what I discover about Ruco Chan. Since 08.11.2013, I have been updating my other post about facts about Ruco, ok sometimes gossips too and until now, still so much to write about him. I must repeat the following from my first part; ever since finding myself liking him, I came across things about him that I find peculiar, interesting, fascinating, vulgar, cute or weird or all of those at the same time. So I decided to write about what I discover about Ruco Chan. I am gonna post even rumours, gossips, whatever, good or bad. If you know something interesting about him (rumoured or otherwise), do use Post A Comment and let me know. By the way, this is a post heavy with pictures and embedded videos so it will load slower than usual. To view original sized picture, click on any image and a pop up window will show the pictures in full size in slide mode.

I read in MingPao weekly magazine's interview about his 7 dates in the past, but never mentioned whom they were. He said some were not from entertainment business. But in recent interviews, he did not mention about how many relationships he had again. Due to the many dating rumours I was googling for more information when I came across this very funny headline;

I had a good laugh, notwithstanding the contents of the article which is what everyone knows. So I thought it would be cool to keep tab of the rumoured other half and whether true or not. Feel free to share more names.

He can be super cute! We know he is handsome, maybe debonair and such but he can also be super cute as in funny cute in a cute natural way. If you have instagram account this is a must see. Short but so funny. If you don't have one, register one! If you don't understand English, it is basically an ad about a cough syrup I think but oh so funny!

I am finally embracing instagram with open arms. I find it exceedingly useful posting food pictures and handsome men pictures all hq stuff of course with short comments and then have it reposted in twitter and facebook. If you are following me at twitter you will see such posts with links but why not join me at instagram and see the pictures posted? Search for me using the word "funnlim" and if you see pictures of food and some men, that's mu account. Been religiously taking pictures of food I eat. Not sure why but I suppose I finally am joining the food selfies!

[O] Shin Sung Rok and the Shin Sung Roks of a series

Print or Download as PDF Post a comment 0 comments

I am in love with Shin Sung Rok. Not only is he photogenic, he is a darn good actor, the best supporting actor to grab or almost grab the lead actor's shine.

I have watched 3 of his series, gonna watch the 4th that is The King's Face and in each of the 3 series I've watched, You Who Came From Another Star, Liar Game and Trot Lovers/Lovers Of Music, he has given a different performance each time or in K-drama speak, a different good feeling each time. He may look somewhat same, depending on level of slimness, but his performance has been hugely different. From the all out socio-psychopath that is borderline comical and yet scary in You Who Came From Another Star to a disturbed man that you somewhat feel a sense of pity for in Liar Game to the all out forgetful, lovable but ultimately wise President of a music company in Trot Lovers, I have never quite seen an actor displayed such vast differences in 3 roles in the space of 4 to 5 years. I read in The King's Face he will be another villain and from the little I've seen, he will definitely bring his A game as he always did. He is one actor that you can't say is pigeonhold into a particular mold.

Thank you TVB!! And I do mean it!

I am watching Fan Bing Bing's Empress of China aka the boobies show. I've read some horror editing stories from the China version after some group complained about showing off women's natural assets even when I frankly didn't know some of them had it. So I was thinking what will TVB do? Well they will edit the show with fewer episodes (well, faster pace I guess) AND as I watched the 1st episode, intelligently and utilising every resources they have, digitally cover the boobies with some clever digitally added clothes which is colour matched and got folds and even shading which shows TVB at its best in digital stuff and unfortunately used on other productions than their own. Wow...gotta admit, no boobies but no horror editing does equal some nice enjoyment of the show thus far even if the story of a paedophile men and ultimately woman (well Wuzetian did fall for a guy young enough to be her son?) is scary and the fact Fan Bing Bing's plays a 14 year old with ample breasts and with so much make up and frozen expression is scary as well.

Kathy Chow and the other "older" actresses were more expressive. 

Anyway my ode to the boobies you SHALL NOT see in the show and frankly don't miss them. At least no too much close ups of those scary faces although the clothes were too high up for my taste. I did hope TVB would alter the OTT ugly fake hair. 

Next complain? Cover those man abs in K-drama please!!! How will TVB do it? Another layer of manly looking woolly bathrobes??
