Did you guess right? Or were you shocked?
Originally I planned to fill the “What’s New” section (refer to panel on right) with Chinese Paladin 3 recaps, but the writing is getting monotonous and unrewarding. It’s time for a switch, say a rough entertainment news round up?
Marriage & Relationship
The hottest one right now is the news coverage on Andy Lau‘s marriage and children (impending and existing,) the fertility tests for a child, daily, sometimes multiple times per day. (Yes ladies, he’s happily married. Last June in Las Vegas.) Following the discovery of Andy Lau’s sneaky marriage, it’s now confirmed that Miriam Yeung (on Aug 11, 2008) and Leon Lai (on March 9, 2008) have also secretly married their respective partner in Vegas. Vegas seems to be the all time favorite wedding spot for the rich and famous!
Then, there was the serial report on Joe Chen/Chen Qiao En (Fated to Love You, Prince Turns into Frog)‘s split with her Australian boyfriend of four years proceeding her newly discovered, alleged “romantic” involvement with Easy Fortune Happy Life costar Roy Qiu (Invincible Shan Bao Mei) — which I planned to write about but eventually gave up on account of extreme heat. I know that’s a pathetic excuse, but let’s face it, this weather really is too hot for writing. I’d rather be spitting out watermelon seeds under a fan than staring into a computer screen.
Anyway, they seem to spark great chemistry on and off screen. Whether this hook-up is true or not, I hope paparazzi’s attention doesn’t or didn’t smother any possibility for happiness.
It came after all, the danger of carrying the chip. A self-important killer steps out in front of Xi Ying and rests his rifle on one shoulder. He smirks arrogantly and says, “Kill you or not, I’ll get the chip.” — speaking too soon — before the smug smile can disappear, the lights in the subway station shut off.
Mr. Chen is taken away.
Mr. Chen is blindfolded and brought to a warehouse.
Mr. Chen’s protectors are all dead.
Mr. Chen’s disappearance nearly drove his daughter crazy.
Under his two body guards’ protection, Hero fled for his life.
“I want him alive!” Zai Tian clamors as the commotion unfolds right before his eyes.
Consider how everyone is out to get Q (Xiao Ma’s fancy code name in Sarkozy); consider again, how he escaped each and every time, it makes one wonder where the spin-off that chronicled his thrilling military adventure went. That’s a lot of excitement we’re missing out on!
Someone’s wasted —
— well, more like:
I just broke my Holy code of conduct, let loose the criminal boss, and lied to my ever so irritating superior. I have made myself THE epic failure of all failures. So now, I must mope around in a bar, bleary-eyed and pathetic.
Little does this yesterday’s hero notice that he might have sent an innocent man away from the grave, scored a point (or two) with the chick he has the hots for, and salvaged his best buddies’ only family. I don’t know about you, but that sure sounds like a handful of accomplishments to me.
