i think there is a reason why i have such an amazing life. it comes from my approach in life. let me give you an example – many years ago at a marina. i saw a guy eating ice cream alone and i said to him – hi why don’t you join us? i had no idea who he was but i invited him in my life and my best friend’s. they have been together since and from him i learnt a lot about life.

i think about all the meaningful relationships i have formed in my life. they come from the fact that i have an open heart. i never refrain myself the opportunity from knowing someone.  i have always lived my life based on intuition and i never let myself go on with someone if i develop bad vibes towards them. my best friend said when we were young – you are being judgemental and i tried for a few years to ignore my intuition. in recent years, i learn to trust it even more.

yesterday, i opened my heart again. i met a new friend and he is amazing. do you believe that how are you attract energies? whenever people tell me that they only attract the wrong type men or women. i suggest they reexamine their energy flow – good or negative

i met elven ho – for now virtually. we are linked by a few people on facebook and he tagged one of my friends in his old photo. and because i was curious to see how my friend looked like in his younger days, i unlocked a treasure trove – my passion for hk films.

i don’t know how many times i have said this.i think i have watched i think every hk film made in the 1980s and 1990s and it was my love for hk that made me packed my bags and left home. i begged elven and asked him permission to publish his photos.

echoes of the rainbow – watch it!

one of my favorite hk movie directors are  director duo alex law( 羅啟銳) and mabel cheung(張婉婷)

they make such beautiful movies that even for someone like me – who enjoys writing fail to words to describe the artistic value to their movies.

since words fail me, i found some old videos of some of my favorite movies by them. if you want an insight into the hk film industry, you MUST watch them. YOU MUST!!!

an autumn’s tale – 1987. chow yuen fatt was just amazing this film.

soong sisters – 1995- watched it with dad when i took a sudden interest into chinese history. i still don’t understand why this movie was a flop. the humanity value in this movie is just so rich.

city of glass – 1998. oh my god, till today this movie chokes me up. the characters are so rich and beautiful. the soundtrack and cinematography are breathtaking. i remember watching this and wanting a great love story just like this.

it’s been many years since i have heard about this duo but they are back again with a new movie -echoes of the rainbow. YAY!!!!

i can’t wait to watch it at the cinema. i hope you do too. there aren’t many good movies in hong kong anymore – but this duo is one that never lets adversities and hard times stand in their way. look at all of their movies, you can tell that they really invest not just money but their hearts, their lives’ lessons into them.please help by encouraging them so that they will continue to mesmerize us with their movies. i invite you to come along and watch this with me.
