Friday Pretty Post: Happy Places

It’s Chow YunFat’s 62nd birthday, Mrs. Chow staged a surprise party on set of η„‘ι›™:

Can’t get any cuter!  And I can tell the cakes are beyond scrumptious just by looking and droolzing, and droolzing not because of these never aging hot uncles.  The upcoming crime thriller is from the brains of Alan Mak + Felix Chong of the Infernal Affairs/ Overheard franchises, and Aaron Kwok has been nothing but good to terrific last 10 years acting, at worst it is some gratuitous ride of HK cityscape p0rn

A picspam nightcap of the Sunny Happiness pretties!

Just saw these @ weibo, ahhh the lovely Sunny Happiness OTP reunited with our insanely viable HOT Guy2 Li YiFeng.  It just makes me so deliriously happy. 

Sunny Happiness is an anomaly of just a handful of TW idoldramas that stole my heart and threw away the keys.   I kinda wanna rewatch bits of it, seeing these happy pics that makes me smile, it’s summer and I always love to revisit some lovely fluffy sweet things.

TOO MUCH PRETTINESS!

preview and some drama doom

Ripley 9:

SHHHIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTT!  THEYYYYY KNOWWWW!!! It’s nth unexpected, but I was expecting it to drag out at least a few eps.  And I dunno why I still wanna see it all unravel every step of the way although I’m not really that engaged w/ drama after I’ve stopped rooting for MR to get whatever she wants.  hmmm, I hope we get to really see MR liking YH the person a tiny bit instead of seeing a walking ka-ching, coz I genuinely felt if only talking about matters of heart, she’s leaning more MH>YH last episode.

And arghhhhh, I’m hiding in my little secret closet watching MarryMe! (still), very very very slowly, and strictly the OTP scenes…and  I can already sniff the doom still miles away.  me think. 

spoiler vids and ramblings…

A big everything goes, mostly a big lump of gooey love fr me! MUAK

Where did this wk go?!  Seriously!!! But really it is F.R.I.D.A.Y.  It’s not a complaint,  I scare myself when I can’t recollect what booboos I’ve done in life for DAYS.

I babble all messily, esp here when I feel I’m in 4D, talking to myself juxtaposed by time much more consciously than other medium, a time traveling.  I’m still groggy.  I’ve just told my boss sth to the effect the most smashing date rape drug targeting me is Benadryl/Claritin/any antihistamines, and I pulled my MOST cognizant face.  Boss patted my shoulder with a fatherly care/concern and wisely walked away.

So… I’m not a good water cooler conversing buddy for my own sake this afternoon.  I usu do try to thread coherent thoughts when it’s written down for all to see (honest).  This afternoon though, I’m hecking it and I’ve just wandered off to my beloved weibo, uploaded bunch of pix to my photobucket and here we go, care for a ride?! I have purrtttyyy PICTURES! XDDDD  I just wanna see how ridiculous a post I can make it.

I had no substantiating food in tummy.  Starving, munching a muffin, 20 oz of 4 shots of espresso and here I am. my thoughts bouncing off where else but my studmuffins?!

My binnie, I’ve abstained fr thee, ma love for the Holy month!!  HOW I MISSEDDD YOU!!

I’ll try to stay my most positive fangirl self because the sight of your long long lonnnnnggggg legs in your Marine outfit is bringing out my happy chipmunk voice!  I hope u r ok with Marines allocating u to do PR (as if u haven’t been doing a yr’s worth last month) instead of real army stuff, because this still looks amazingly challenging physically even if it’s for a photo op. *hughughug*

I love you so very much, lazylazy me even did a collage for you (of a collection of awesome fanart I grabbed/stole). I still dunno how to resize stuff when posting in LJ, THAT lazy. πŸ˜‰

Late Autumn will be showing at the Taipei Film Festival in Jun/Jul.  When clicking into its webby, I’m annoyed of the pimping of both ManChu and SHK’s Camellia in the same breath and linked by one hugeass headline of their love affairs.  I’ve lost respect of TPFF just like that. *pfffff* www.taipeiff.org.tw/Public/Content.aspx

These OTOH, make me VERY happy πŸ™‚

Done with Love Contract. Speechless.

**SPOILERS**

OMFGWTFBBQ what’s up with that ending couple eps?!?!?!?!??!  I watched the beach scene 3 freaking times in utter daze/disbelief/bewilderment and this is coming fr someone unspoiled yet totally expecting peeps will ….stop breathing.   I don’t care how explainable they choose to ‘do it’, I’ve started swearing with the whole accident+vegetative state, no surprise. So NOT WANT!  Since I skipped all the extraneous characters fr the get go, my impression of drama has been a crude homage an Adachi shonen with heart.  WHY the Uturn of OTT ridiculous makjang?!?!  The reveal of that stupid contract, I can live with, but I thought it’s blown up to proportions after her initial very understandable flipping outburst.  I have so much faith in my damaged yet WORKING ON IT babies to overcome that of all things and live somewhat happily everafter hotly licking each others wounds.  IS this designed  for edge of seat shock?!  :/  coz instead of being shocked, it completely lost me.

I’m always against suicides in the name of love in dramas.  You r alive, one live for oneself anyways, u have other peeps and relationships in your life, taking ur own life u r robbing  precious chunks of intangible existence fr those around u, even for a drama character, me v batty.  A case when I stop judging is with sufferer of severe mental disorders. IF instead of an abrupt 360 I got Ken totally losing it and gone batshit hammered me to acceptance eps prior,  I’ll stomp on my heart and be in excruciating pain and crying my eyes out.  But as is, I DONT FEEL A FRELLING THING for them!  Except I’ve lost these characters I’ve grown to care for somewhere in some WTFery blackhole of writing/directing.  This is snapping me out this drama watching experience, a rude awakening.  I don’t know those 2 walking towards the ocean.  I don’t know and don’t want to hurt my brain of why the ‘happy’ note, friends in toll, in the ending scene. 

Ken!  O MY KEN!! You were this lone little puppy licking ur own wounds all along and totally functional with ur own passions in life and I’m so rooting for you to not let any ANY shit kneel you.  (and bravo Mike, gosh the mourning of Mom had me sobbing all messily and I still have his wailing haunting me to tears *SOB*) And Xiao Feng!! Really my intractable girlfriend with a self-aware fragility, you REALLY approve of THAT esp consciously (as conscious as someone in a coma) knowing your Ken REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVES YOU!!!>??!  I dunno, I’m, along with all of mankind, so not ok with ppl I love dying….particularly if I’m the cause.

Up till 20, the drama on a whole was flawed but with some very endearing lovely things going on with the OTP.   Totally my thing and it’s absolutely not for naught in time spent.  All I know is if I’ve stopped right before the beach scene this will still be in my Like (with some buts) pile.

Since I watched it for Mike fangirling, LC is a revelation.  Mike is clearly a sufferer of being too pretty it hurts(his career).  And I’m sorry I did judge him by his superficial gorgeousness and nth else.  He can always do nuance, he can breathe life into a realistic character.  He’s awesome in subtler wordless scenes.  I saw a very early, green Leslie Cheung in his Ken.  What if he’s allowed to build on this earnest role and just act, his style?!  Or be in sth like B&W or Kenting much earlier on?! 

Love Contract : torntorntorn

My plan for the wk: to watch TWdrama till I overdose.  One can never have too much sweet fluff/Mike He.

I’ve decided to watch Love Contract b4 continuing on MarryMe!  I’m working towards being a Mike He completist having fallen for his pitch perfect acting in SH, honestly that’s what impresses me most,  more so than his gorgeousness in suits, and channeling Naohito/Buchou~…..Mike He is a competent actor, but every other thing I’ve watched enough of him in…scared me far far away scarred.  And I need to know where his brilliant turn in SH is fr, I insist it must be fr somewhere.

I fell in instant madlove with Mike’s Ken.   Ken reminds me of Uesugi (Touch) and Yamato (Rough), the quintessential quiet heroes of Mitsuru Adachi.  Loner, miser with words but never entitled to assholery, focused /perfectionist with their passion, yet the most caring sensitive anchor for his loved ones.  Those r the inner lovely qualities, more importantly, my brain is fixated on his too yum for words naked toned torso , often times wet.  And his perfect arms r made to wear only sleeveless or nth.

I want to kidnap and marry him by force for COOKING FOR HIS MOM while she’s napping before he heads out to work! With a caring note. And reminds her to take her meds.  And his hair.  Gorgeous hair.  And his supporting himself as a competent bartender balancing all his hats as a student and disciplined swim captain with a habit of snorkeling at nite to unwind.  In my head, if this is not idoldrama territory, his kink is nightswimming and nobody does that in the dark with clothes.  And to make him more perfect (for me) he draws and paint pipes, and looks MikeHeGorgeous doing everything without uttering a word.  Be still my heart.  I conclude I can watch him watching paint dry.

Ahhhh!  so early on @ep 2 the OTP is at full throttle already with the way he turns and gives her mouth to mouth after fishing her out and she slaps him yet it strikes a chord of fluttering chatroom love therapy. I’m way more in love with interactions btn Ken and Mom at this point, just what I imagine a single mom with her lovely dependable son to be and it sates my inner motherly love I don’t really possess atm but will have plenty for a son like Ken. 
I love their little ‘bickering’ on their first movie ‘date’.  I don’t see a mean bone in Ken, everything he’s said he’s being matter of fact, just NOT a warm and cuddly thing.  When he had enough and cease putting up with her, he part with telling her his name is Ken instead of ‘Hey’ WITHOUT even looking back at her face.  So perfect and cool. Mike I β€ u!

BUT, I saw a few of the same supporting cast as the MarryMe! bunch and I cringe. That Wood chatroom guy is a boring piece of not pretty enough wood here and in MM!, and his name in MarryMe! downgrades to literally plank.  He’s such a snorefest to watch, unable to deliver an ounce of emotion.  The friends r totally MEH, just the same as with MarryMe!  except for XiaoBai, which is building a genuine friendly rapport with Ken.  I also like Ariel and her sis, her parents…not so much both acting wise and as characters.

So exact same old prob with LC as MM! :/  I’m actually more attached to the heroine in MM! than Ariel here, so far she’s out acted by Mike *SHOCK* and her character is our typical stock wounded soul under the porcupine coat that is hard to root for being annoying every time she spits her protective venom.

Can I continue with this inconsistent PD?!  OR major ffing exc for OTP and Ken+Mom?  Dilemma of the day

I Love Watching Mike He…buying groceries?!

Still in an extended drama slump.  I’m watching President at SNAIL speed, it is still good, but I’m stalled at ep5 and whenever I have a bit of time to unwind since last wk,  I’m  programmed to watch romance.  my brain is lazylazylazy these days *sad*.

I guess it’s starved for pure sweet fluff for soooooo long and like after a no carb diet, u’ll horde ALL the glucose in sight?! Sunny Happiness has awaken the beast?!  Or the fact my comprehension of Mando (at least my TW Mando) is proficient enough and I dont need to read the captions no more?! I can’t get enough of Mike He?!?!

I’m watching Marry Me! I haven’t even heard of it, being a very late sorta fangirl of TWdramas, watched my share since the MeteorGarden rage, but nth really clicked till ISWAK and that was 2 short yrs ago, after 4 Clockwork Orange tries.  I now do my TW pickings according to PDs, PD Qu of ISWAK, Rose, is ~ok, PD Lin (ie most of Mike’s stuff) is an absolute nonono for me.
