If You Want To Be A Star....

Can't say this is the first time I've heard this. The first time someone told me first-hand about how he has slept with some A-list HK stars, I bulked and called him a bluff. Maybe he was puffing up his sexual portfolio to impress his friends or something...who knows? 
Then about a month and a half ago, I met up with a potential client and over coffee, this couple told me the same thing. It's common knowledge that if you wanted to get somewhere, you'd better be willing to escort, drink your liver out and sleep with some big time CEOs or People of Power. exchange for 'sponsorship' or 'endorsement' deals. 
So, if you refuse, you're probably going to have to fight very hard or perhaps, be relegated to B-list roles forever. No wonder I see a whole long list of really good actors and actresses who never got anywhere, you know what I mean? They're really good but they always play secondary role. I am sure you can recall at least one HK actor who fits this description. 
Anyway, I don't know why it should be any surprise to me at all, really, because I know it's happening in Malaysia and the same thing goes for Singapore. It's just that I can't quite believe it of my favorite actors and actresses, that's why. Would they really betray their own bodies to get the lead roles? 
Apparently so. 
Well, it's really none of my business whatever they do with their bodies but not when it comes down to this. 
In South Korea, this is also a common practice, you see. 2008 isn't a good year for the Korean movie industry because a string of stars committed suicide (most by hanging themselves - a popular choice, apparently) for various reasons. 
Recently, 29-year-old Jang Ja-Yeong ended her own life tragically because according to sources close to the star, she has been battling depression for some time. Has anyone ever wondered why so many South Korean celebrities are suffering from depression and refuse to open up?
This actress left more of a trail than the others. She left behind a telling letter saying that she's tired of having to entertain guests because of her career. She also mentions being beaten up which I think is highly likely but unacceptable!
For more on Jang Ja-Yeong's death, read this's a dirty industry and makes me shiver to think that I wanted to be a part of it when I was little. Thank goodness I grew up.

Space Sweepers (Netflix): Movie Review (2021)

Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?'  ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'.  Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling.  So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore . There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me. For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media. Since we were more like partners in crim

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme
