Celebs Real Life Couples

Okay, I was just bored and wanted to start a list. But I will only include the ones I know for sure of OR care about somewhat. So if you don’t see your favorites on there, DON’T freak out. Also, I’m not including any past relationships OR rumors. AND–yes, this is the last one–I’m dividing them by region since I was getting a headache trying to group ’em one way or another.

Fan Fiction: Inspirational Songs

This is more like out of fun and to fill the blog with more randomness. One time I was talking to one of my fellow fan fic writers and she was surprised that I actually write with music on since it’s more of a distraction for her than inspiration. So I started to wonder what other fellow writers’ routines are. For this post though, I’m going to reveal all the songs that I ever used for the stories I wrote–that are posted so far on this blog. (Though I won’t list all since sometimes the music is just background and it didn’t really have a major impact for writing some scenes, etc.) Feel free to jump in and share your own experiences, etc.

Status of Fan Fiction III

News Flash: I removed the links for both parts of Desperate Moments because I don’t feel like continuing. Even if I want to continue, I want to change some details and have it better planned out than that. I started writing it ages ago on Winglin and sort of updated as I go and sometimes the chapters were short or long, depending on the time I had around the computer so it ended up being a hassle to edit or too much effort when I go to re-read to recall past details. So I thought of re-creating. Some things might stay the same such as relationships or some details here and there. But the others will change, such as the age. I might even cut out characters since it’s one long list and some pairings I’m not that obsessed with anymore to write a decent plot for them. Or I have other stories where they either paired up or are in so I don’t want to clash that. Of course, it would take a while for me to do it and when I actually have inspirations. Or maybe it won’t surface again. I don’t know. Thanks for those who read anyway.

Past Fan Fics:

The Other Extreme – Who thought I finished it so early, right? PROUD MODE! (Sorry, had to. Since I’m always so slow with updates.) Of course, I mentioned it in the last update but it’s done posting now–finally.

Current Fan Fics:

Heaven’s Gift – Okay, so I thought I would focus on this after ‘The Other Extreme’ but I’m still stuck. The mood doesn’t feel right. I’m still in my morbid one so I can’t drive the plot around in the happy mood–like it’s supposed to be. And I sure don’t want to ruin it.

Hide & Seek – Almost done with Chapter 3. Almost.

Slanted Thoughts – This is the Wallace, Cyndi, and Nic one that I kept mentioning. I finally posted it. And it’s scheduled to post every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. That is as the chapters allowed. This is somewhat long. I scheduled 13 chapters already and I’m working on Chapter 14 now. It was supposed to be 12 chapters. But I cut out 1 chapter and changed some details. I also included additional characters, like Yvonne Yao, Jiro Wang, and Tammy Chen. It’s going to be a Jindi one since I changed my mind about some things. But I could tell you guys right now that Jiro won’t appear until Chapter 13 and I’m not even sure who I would pair Wallace up with in the end. Another thing is Wallace’s the main dude so don’t be surprised if it’s so focused on him to the point where other characters only appear when he’s around.

Slicing Boundary – Stuck. Nothing new. You guys can tune in to the other one. (A little wait but yeah…)

Tri-Visual – Blame it on the mood I’m going through after watching Black & White since I started it while finishing up the last few episodes. It just feels right to me for the most part. And maybe this project is to unleash my morbid mode so I could get my happy mode back soon for the more happy fanfics.

Upcoming Fan Fics:

The Dating Game 3 – I’m doing brainstorming for the most part now. Since I’m sort of in the mood for ‘Slanted Thoughts’ more. I lost inspiration for that one for a while now and am glad to get it back to finish it. Then maybe this one. But need to tie up the other ‘current’ ones first.

Status of Fan Fiction II

So another update, eh? I thought I accomplished something for the past weeks so I have a bit of right to brag about it, LOL!

Past Fan Fics:

The Dating Game 1 & 2 – I re-write it a bit. The only part of the story that I changed was regarding Ming Dao and Qiao Qiao’s story in there. They do not end up together anymore. This is because I’m working on part 3 and I’m stuck and I want to change the direction of the story so went to change that part.

Current Fan Fics:

Desperate Moments II – Still stuck. I’m not sure when I will pick it up again.

Heaven’s Gift – I’m going to try and finish this soon since I just took a bit of a break because school schedule among other things.

Hide & Seek – Working on it slowly so whenever I’m done with a chapter, I will post it up. Not giving this one up. Don’t worry. Just a long wait, that’s all.

Slicing Boundary – Almost done with it. Just slightly stuck. So far, I feel good about it. So just don’t want to ruin it like the other ones.

The Other Extreme – PROUD MODE! LOL! Finished it already and it is scheduled to update every Tuesdays and Thursdays until it is finished.

Upcoming Fan Fics:

Adylan fan fic – I’m thinking of starting another one since I’m stuck on the current one and can’t post anyway. It would be better to start a different one.

The Dating Game 3 – Not sure if I should post it now. But maybe should clear out some more? Maybe if I feel like it later.

Wallace, Cyndi, Nic fan fic – Need to get back to that since I’ve been working on those Jindi ones. But I don’t even have a poster yet or know what it would look like. Might post it up first and then think about poster later since I got the title already.

NOTE: This post is no longer relevant regarding some stories–since it has been removed. However, I’m keeping it for context regarding other stories.

Status of Fan Fiction

Since I did an update on the dramas, I thought I do it for fan fictions too, considering I have been lagging on some of them major time.

Current Fan Fics:

C.R.A. – Stuck. I have one chapter as cushion BUT don’t expect to update anytime soon. Been so frustrated that I kept going off from the main topic that I can’t seem to break out of it. It just gets even worse and worse the more I write. I’m thinking about scrapping it and writing it over OR just leave it until my flow of thought comes back. Since I want to focus on Tony and Cyndi more BUT can’t seem to get it going.

Desperate Moments II – Honestly, I’m stuck. I know where it’s supposed to be going but I need to get the space fillers in to explain everything. Trying to wrap it up since I don’t want it to drag like the first part. Though the first part could be because the chapters were much shorter at times.

Heaven’s Gift – Stuck. I already wrote the last chapter, just need 2 or 3 more chapters before I’m done. I like the flow so far for the most part so I want to think up of something to turn this around and drive it home.

This isn’t bad, right? Only need to update 3! YET I could be proud of one out of 3. Sad.

Upcoming Fan Fics:

I’m almost done with this one Wallace, Cyndi, Nic fan fic and thought I would post it if I could finish it next week.

Jindi fan fics – Got some ideas for the first one but do not even have a title yet. It’s a fun one (I think). The second one might be a bit more intense, possibly on the side of morbid-land but I won’t post that up until after I’m done with HG. That is IF I could come with the title for that as well.

Adylan fan fic – I’m seriously stuck on this one and NOT sure what to do anymore. Maybe if I clear the others up, I might get into it. I kept switching stuff around, trying to adjust the details so it would be more exciting.

Another thing is Winglin has been quite unstable lately–as some of you have noticed. I am not sure what’s going on. However, syko has told me that it was flagged as ‘malware-infected’ for his computer. I think I might remove the links from there later. What do you guys think?

NOTE: This post is no longer relevant regarding some stories–since it has been removed. However, I’m keeping it for context regarding other stories.

I’m Sorry, But I like Kevin Cheng

I think I’m writing this to repent myself more than anything since my last post of him was so negative. Or at least it felt that way to me, contrary to my past impression of him and the last several years. Perhaps, I was such a big chicken and how I was so scared that people would criticize me or even going to target me if I as much as express my likings for Kevin. (It reminded myself too much of how I was cornered in the past and had not stayed firm on my beliefs.) I shouldn’t have let others influence me regardless. What’s to be ashamed of, right? But this topic should be about Kevin and NOT me so I’ll move on.

Actually, I felt that he has been typecasted since he became the lead and that’s saying something. I remembered liking his acting style when he was NOT lead. Everyone goes through that phase at TVB, except for several rare people. This is NOT a reason to justify Kevin’s lack of variety since he was declared as TV King. But it’s what most viewers have been familiar with. Just because TVB decided to give him the crown, anti-fans streamed in to attack him. It’s like a contagious hatred that spread endlessly, which happened in the past with others and will continue to happen in the future.

Did anyone realize all the smaller roles that Kevin appeared in years and years ago? What am I getting at? I don’t think it’s even fair to say that he just jumped out to be the main lead all of a sudden. He was around for a while. Just like some other people. I think he actually deserved the lead spot after so many years. BUT I do not think that he should get the crown for TV King. YES, I said it. It was for the wrong series. It was too early also. But I don’t think he deserved to be bashed like that.

Just to make a point and to redeem myself. Next topic? Kevin, Ray, and Timmy.

Kevin Cheng: What in the world happened?

Okay, so I felt like blogging about Kevin today since he was one of my favorite singers back then (but I didn’t realize it was him until one of those days several years back that I put two and two together). He just looked different in those days so it was a bit hard to notice.

So what was with the outburst? Honestly, I wondered what happened but I guess TVB happened. More specifically a temptation in the name of V-Lok. Yeah, I knew what happened in the past with his master/teacher must have been hard, etc but it was a bit disappointing to see him cave in in the end. Well, he got fame and recognition, but somehow I felt it was for all the wrong reasons. I felt like he should have gone down the singing career path instead of the acting one since people did not care for him in that matter because he would just be a shield for all of TVB’s political fights. Not to mention he was often placed on the platter for people to idolize because of his looks AND not his talent (or like no one cared to analyze it further than that). Then somehow along the way, I don’t know, but his singing seemed to deteriorate (or so I thought) as well. It was like the more handsome he became (or thanks to those people working on his current image), the less talented he turned into.

What was wrong with his singing now? I don’t know. I liked more songs from him back then than now. He sounded more lively back then. Yes, I know that most of the songs he sang now are sadder but honestly, I could not feel the emotions brought into it versus his songs back then. Also, though his image was along the line of a nerd (or something like that) back then, somehow I liked it more that way. It looked more natural, more real versus all the fake layer now. NOT that I am accusing him of being fake, BUT I am just saying it looked forced somehow.

I think I should be glad that he and Raymond Cho are still best friends–like once upon a time. At least it shows that he still remembers how Ray was supporting him during those harsh times.

Placebo Cure

I must give the scriptwriters credit for wrapping it up quite well without feeling awkward. I also loved it that they kept Joyce’s character, San, persistent throughout and how she stuck with her principles. Yes, she did like Joe since little because he played with her and didn’t make fun of her like the other kids. However, he broke her heart that one time by using her to get back at his ex-girlfriend so she didn’t blindly ignore it afterward. It was good that she tried to maintain a friendship with both guys but finally choosing Wallace later since she realized how he took everything slowly and didn’t rush into relationships, plus how he always helped her no matter what. Moreover, he made her feel comfortable and safe when she was around him. It was good that she ignored the whole “horoscope” thing and went with Wallace instead of choosing Joe when Joe finally took her serious. Joe didn’t deserve a second chance because although he was a good person and a great friend, he was always such a player in love. No one could guarantee when one day his facade fell, what else he would do. The series wrapped up not too wrapped and got us thinking. But still nice.

One of my favorite scenes must be at San’s birthday where everyone made her dance with one of the guys (since it was her special day and she must lead them all) and she ended up choosing her junior! That was way too funny. Thought she would pick Joe because she still felt somewhat awkward with Wallace’s confession but she picked her junior so no one would feel bad (lol) and she didn’t want to give the wrong impression.

And maybe the reason why I liked this series so much was that it wasn’t too wrapped since Joe (Kevin) didn’t end up with anyone. It was a funny scene at the end that everyone had a dance partner, except him. But then he saw Wallace’s sister so they just ended up being dance partners! That was funny! (And I sort of remember how they were siblings in Life Art!)

All three of the main cast did well actually, mostly Sunny and Joyce since Kevin seemed a bit lagging–maybe because of the character. But I think he really improved in his recent series. I was mostly impressed with Joyce since she seemed so natural compared to her first series–which was a pain to watch because of her exaggeration. Now, it seemed like she got the hang of it. I’m glad to say that she pulled the majority of this series with Sunny throughout. The cases with Sunny as the psychologist were a mix of good and bad ones but I must say my most favorite one would be of Liu Kai Chi and his daughter. It was so touching that I managed a few tears to see the story unfold.

It was interesting to see Gilbert Lam keep popping up here and there within cases but still fun. I’m sorry to say that TVB rarely gives Gilbert good roles although he’s a decent actor. Oh well. His role was all right in here but not the best. My favorite must be the one in HK Criminal Files and then Crossborder Daddy.

Talking about Gilbert, I especially liked the whole family. It was a nice family and good casting of them. Nice to see that Natalie got a little story of her own too.

Last One Standing

Must agree that this is one of TVB’s best series of 2008. It got both brilliance and suspense. This was an awesome collaboration between Roger and Kevin. Although I kind of doubt it if Kevin was up to it since reading up on news during the series’ filming (even if I know Kevin’s acting abilities already). However, Kevin proved it that he was up to the part. He really did well opposite Roger. This was one of the most intense series that took it up to the max with sacrifices that I’ve seen for a while now–without holding back on several matters, causing it not to be cheesy at all. And maybe they never gave Yoyo a big enough role (except for the conflict in the beginning) that made this series better. (I’m not saying I dislike her since she’s one of my favorite actresses.) But I’m saying it made the rivalry and conflicts between Kevin and Roger rise to another level–with schemes and mind games throughout, mostly brain-work and silent wars.

First off, Kevin as Cheung Sing Hei. I must say this was one of the most challenging roles ever for Kevin but considering how he already pulled off such a villain role in The Ultimate Crime Fighter, I must say I’m proud of him. He has gone past his other roles and portrayed such an intense character. His emotional state throughout were apparent and led us into believing and experiencing Sing Hei’s state of mind as the series progressed. It was so vivid and tragic at the same time. If anything, Kevin should have won an award for this role instead of all his roles from the past years (which I swear he could portray with both of his hands tied behind his back). This was a more challenging role and required more time and effort to pull off.

This was the first time in a series that I enjoyed watching a villain character like Roger so much. He had played villains in the past and most of them were of characters who were driven to the wall and had no other choice but to do some “wrongs.” Those characters usually had to improvise in the end to fit the situation and mostly do rash things thus leading to their downfall and/or facing different consequences. However, in this series, Roger’s character, Tong Lap Yeen, has been planning out all his traps from the beginning to the end. He has never been careless or reckless in his behavior. Every word and action was planned and consequences came out as a result. Sure, unexpected things happened, but he soon cooked up a scheme just as quick to resolve the matter in a snap. He possessed both of intelligence and vigilance toward everyone around him. The fact that his character never shown an ounce of regret, in the end, made it even scarier and suspenseful. It made one guessed even more about his character. It just didn’t end there. It followed a somewhat eerie path that he was one of those criminals who didn’t regret anything–and might take up on revenge or doing more wrongs after he got released in the future. A very well crafted character in fact. One of the best villain characters by far. No wonder Roger was having trouble sleeping at times during the night while filming the series because this was one of the most challenging villain roles for him–especially after all those silly and/or goofy roles he portrayed in the recent years. And he pulled it off to the point of flawless!

Other things I like about this series:

  • The partnership and/or companionship between Kevin and Ellesmere in this series as Cheung Sing Hei and Yeung Kin Yip. Although Ellesmere didn’t appear much (or it seemed that way to me), he played such an important role being Kevin’s ally in here, assisting him in finding out different things on the side while Kevin had to pretend he was on the same side as Roger. They were a great duo because they were actually forced to collaborate because of the murder slate Roger pinned on Ellesmere, causing Ellesmere wanting to bring Roger in for justice more than anything else and bringing out his sense of righteousness also (although somewhat too comedic as how he portrayed it). They were funny as bro-in-laws and also as a team. Always having to bicker in front of others or show signs of disapproval yet always getting together to discuss cases when others weren’t around. I wasn’t as impressed with Ellesmere’s performances before but in recent series and especially in this one, I really like him as an actor and feel that he was really up to different and bigger roles–even if he doesn’t get as much chance.
  • Eddie Lee and Elaine Yiu – I already knew and sense it in the beginning already but it was really nice and cute and somewhat a subtle point to the series. It wasn’t too much either considering the mood set for this series itself. There were also some conflicts between them during intense times, but really enjoy it during the other times and somewhat near the end where they reunite again.
  • Evergreen Mak and Fiona Yuen – The fact that they paired up numerous times already made it feel weird to not pair them up again when they’re in the same series together. But still fun to watch and probably for the last time or so since Fiona has left TVB already.
  • Sherming Yiu as So Lai Fa aka Tseng Shu Leung (Law Lok Lam)’s mistress. No one in their right mind would like the person who ruined someone’s marriage, but in this case, I have to make an exception. And no, I’m not making this exception because Sherming portrayed this role. It was because although Lai Fa was involved with Shu Leung, she took on a stronger responsibility for her son and probably and possibly loved Shu Leung’s character more than Kiki’s character did–even IF he didn’t deserve it. Lau Kit Yee (Kiki Sheung) was just using Shu Leung as a lifesaver at that time after her husband died and she needed a male figure to support her because she couldn’t find ways to stand up on her own or take care of herself–thus leading to her seeking and finally finding Shu Leung, who was not only a restaurant owner but he was single (aka available or so he said). She forced her kids to like him and accept him because he was their financial asset. (He probably deserved it too considering what kind of person he was.) Plus Kit Yee didn’t even believe her kids when they told the truth many times to her (and had been through thick and thin with her since young–not complaining of the hardship). She only wanted to cling on to the man who provided to her every need, causing many misunderstandings and broken hearts. (Although she finally found out the truth at the end and tried to make up for it, it was NOT like it was going to erase everything. IF she had believed her kids earlier, a lot of things wouldn’t happen.) Lai Fa, on the other hand, cared for her son no matter what. She wanted Sing Hei to take care of her financial matters also BUT because she mistakenly thought he had murdered Shu Leung (as everyone did except the killer). She actually treated Sing Hei like family (although they were not related at all since Sing Hei was just Shu Leung’s step-son) when she came to Sing Hei’s apartment and ran into Kit Yee. She said that to Sing Hei, “This is your brother, you have to take care of him.” Although it seemed ridiculous and funny at that time because she desperately wanted to find someone to help her take care of hospital fees for her son to get the treatments he needed, that was a desperate attempt of a mother–in any way she could find–to save her son. She treated Sing Hei like a relative and honestly believed in his word when he said he would take care of things. Her caring nature as a mother was undoubtful–unlike Kit Yee who only cared about money. Another thing that Lai Fa topped Kit Yee was she never re-married again after ten years. (I have to clarify here that I’m not trying to shame people who remarry or whatever, BUT what I meant in this situation was how Kit Yee had used others to her means hence the marriage, NOT because she found love again or whatever. She was just using people. It was a despicable move and tarnished the name of marriage in general. Not to mention how she only cared for herself and disregarded all her kids’ opinions and thoughts. It was ridiculous since she should understand her kids better than that. If she didn’t think something was possible, she should still investigate the matter instead of disregard everything like that. She thought that the kids made it up because they didn’t like him, but what about when they were older? Would her daughter do such things? Considering how obedient her daughter was through all the times.) Yes, maybe people who know about Lai Fa’s past wouldn’t dare to touch her or socialize with her. But she had moved away (aka practically disappeared) until recently but she still kept to herself and raised her son despite all the hardships–not seeking out any other man. (There wasn’t much information disclosed but considering how young and attractive she was, she could find anyone she wanted and knew the right tricks. But she didn’t do it.) She also had a lot of debts, but she still stood firm on caring for her son, etc. It seemed that after Shu Leung died, her life revolved around her son. She looked weak and wishy-washy or seemed that way from some flashback scenes with Shu Leung but yet she possessed a stronger personality than hold the eye. This was why I really like her for who she was. She was NOT perfect in any way, but the fact that she had set out some goals and actually tried to act like a responsible mother made her very brave in every aspect. And to add the last point to this one, I honestly think Sherming Yiu is getting tossed aside by TVB again–although I must say she did well and convinced the audience that she was such character, but how could they promote so many inexperienced actresses nowadays and NOT her? Strange. Very strange but on the other side, she gets more experienced with different roles than just the same, repetitive ones like the usual main leads get.
  • The fact that Kevin doesn’t end up with Yoyo or Macy. It would be too lame or overdone and definitely defeats the purpose. Considering after so many things has happened, how could Yoyo accept Kevin just like that after she found out and broke up with Roger? And the fact that how could Kevin accept Macy–even if Macy doesn’t mind–just like that? He can’t just end up with her just because of guilt and harm he caused for her and vice versa, plus there have been so many conflicts going on. Even if in the future, they should meet again and reconsider, they honestly need more “cool off” time and think about it more carefully of the consequences and/or resolve conflicts of their minds first. But I honestly don’t ever think they could end up together even if she didn’t meet someone else and is getting married soon. He had used her and she also took revenge on him. Both parties couldn’t be blamed. But what I dislike the most was when he did try to withdraw several times, she kept coming back and forcing him to accept her. Yes, can’t blame her for liking him, but she provided the opportunity for him to use her even more. And then when he finally told her they couldn’t be together for real, she would slap him and then go back to him again. He already came clear but she still acted like it was his fault and assumed that he was with Yoyo, etc. Even if he was with Yoyo afterward, they’ve already broken up. What was with that? It was a great choice for Yoyo not to accept Kevin either. She would keep thinking about the conflicts between them all and what had happened. Probably something will happen in the future, but not at that time.
  • And because it wasn’t as gift-wrapped as it was supposed to be with typical TVB series. This could count as one of TVB’s highly anticipated series considering both Kevin and Roger are in it, but it didn’t disappoint like most highly anticipated series would be. Very well scripted throughout and answered all the questions without leaving any loose ends.

Aside from those things, I would like to bring a point up also–or probably yet another point (lol). I usually don’t like to pick on new actors/ actresses but I must agree with some people that Yvonne Ho as Kevin’s sister is a poor choice. I swear she could be his older sister and making her a tad more childish at times doesn’t help either. (I know she worked very hard and shouldn’t be blamed but the pressure put on her to portray this role is somewhat unfair.) At first, I thought she should have swapped roles with Elaine or at least pick Elaine to be Kevin’s sister and pick someone else to be Roger’s sister. However, I could see towards the end of the series that Elaine as Hoi Man plays a bigger role after Roger sheds off his mask slowly to the others.

The only complaint I want to make is making Law Lok Lam the villain for like several minutes as the awful step-father makes it almost insulting although he was convincing as always.

Overall, this was a very good series and for the first time–I wouldn’t mind a sequel–IF there is going to be one in the future.
