About his goals in the entertainment industry, he said: “What can I do on this world? Everyone has their strengths. Besides performing, what can I share with society? I thought about it seriously. I should do my best in entertaining everyone. Allow people to find themselves through my characters. This is what I can do now. Something I can do my best to achieve.”
Global Solidarity with Hong Kong - there’re 47 cities listed at the moment.
As CCP leaders celebrate China’s first “Martyr’s Day” (left), state media coverage of the Hong Kong protests remains sparse, biased and sometimes overtly wrong. Our roundup of China’s newspaper’s today.

Thank you Tumblrians.
Last night I posted this pic. I can’t believe there’re over 6000 likes/reblogs, from Tumblrians all over the world. Sure, not everyone agreed or understood the meaning behind it, but it doesn’t matter. If the old lady gave you a little glimmer of hope, then it already achieved its purpose.
I posted the same pic on Instagram. Within minutes two people started arguing. The details of which I won’t go into, but essentially, her argument was:
Before the handover, Hong Kong couldn’t elect their own Governor anyway! He was chosen by the British government! Why are you people complaining now? Stop causing trouble!
The answer could be as simple as - because it was promised to the people.
But of course, life is complicated. I cannot speak for everyone in Hong Kong, but in the years since the handover, we have seen some of our basic human rights slowly eroded away.
We ARE NOT SEEKING INDEPENDENCE. I think this is an important point since some people assume protest = revolution = independence. We’re simply asking for our voice to be heard.
We want to express our views freely.
The views above are mine, if you do not agree - you can express your view but I won’t get into an argument with anyone. That will be in opposition of why all those people are on the streets right now.
Even if you live overseas, this Facebook page has a list of all the overseas rallies planned.
Boysitter a.k.a Bad Romance <摩女搶頭婚>
Featuring: Annie Chen, Huang He, Melvin Sia, Gao Shanfeng, Nita Lei, Yang Ching, Xu Xiao Shun.
I will definitely watch this drama for three reasons. (1)Annie is playing a much older woman for the first time and she’s not with GH (which I love but working together in every single drama is not good for both of them careerwise), (2)Huang He or otherwise known as the new wonder boy-cutie not only for his good looks but for his acting chops, and (3) I am so happy for the newly minted leading man Melvin Sia, I think it’s about time for him, I’m not too crazy bout the stache though.
This is TVBS’ 4th drama and I can’t help but notice that a few actors have appeared in the previous dramas hmm.
Is this the Hong Kong that we know?
Is this what should happen in Hong Kong?
Is this your impression of Hong Kong?
Please, spread it around the world now and let more people know about the issue, as this should not have been happened in a city like Hong Kong.
Some people might think - what’s the point of fighting? The Chinese government will never back down. Hong Kong only has 7 million people. Its influence is too insignificant for anyone to care.
If we don’t fight for what we believe now, for our children, for our children’s children, we may never have the chance to do it ever again.
Just look at what the Chinese government did in response. They blocked Instagram. If you think money is more important than freedom, that’s fine. That is what freedom means. I may not agree with you, but I will defend your right to say it. We can agree to disagree and at least respect each other.
Hong Kong-ers are protesting in peace, with no weapons. Their only weapons are eye masks, umbrellas and plastic wrap (to protect themselves from the tear gas). Heck, people even packed their rubbish in plastic bags after they left the area.
As we were watching the news, my mum asked - if we were in Hong Kong right now, will we go to protest? YES. HELL YES. You don’t know how much I want to buy a plane ticket and join right now. I may not live in Hong Kong anymore but my relatives, my friends are there. I still love this city. I don’t want to see it die before my eyes.
