I’ve always loved crafts – my mom is super ‘crafty’ (hur hur hur… see what I did there), and I grew up watching her make little bracelets to taking over all the decorations for my cousins’ weddings. She also made me an Emperor Dowager outfit for a party and it blew everyone’s mind
Lately I’ve gotten into making shrink plastic crafts: been making little pendants and I tried making a money clip the other day. It didn’t all turn out as I had hoped but shrink plastic still fascinates me! Continue reading →
Sorry for the lack of updates. Haven’t been doing enough things to have crazy inspirations to write… and… I’ve been lazy :p
Lately I’ve been training for an action movie called “Lady Bloodsport”, which is about female fighters from all around the world coming together at an underground tournament to fight each other in their own martial arts style… I’ve managed to hurt three out of four limbs and I personally think it’s some kind of record (For more on “Lady Bloodsport”, check out the B&E Productions Facebook Page)
Yep, three. I said three. One of my knee has been hurting too. Well… technically both, because they’re both old injuries but thanks to the invention of ice packs, I’m much better. Today I’ll be training with wraps/supports on my wrist, elbow, and knee. If you didn’t know better you’d think I’m about to pull some BMX trick or something.
… On that note … Just realized I’m going to be late for training if I don’t run from my laptop now, sooooo… SEE YA LATER ALLIGATOR!!!
In my household, being gay was, and is, no big deal. When my brother came out, we hugged him, said we loved him, and that was that…Just for the record, we don’t feel that there is actually anything alternative about our family values…I don’t consider myself just an ally to the LGBT community, I consider myself your family…if anyone, ever, tries to hurt you, I’m going to give them hell…There are people who have said that I’m being brave for being openly supportive of gay marriage, gay adoption, basically of gay rights. But with all due respect I humbly dissent. I’m not being brave. I’m being a decent human being. And I don’t think I should receive an award for that, or for merely stating what I believe to be true, that love is a human experience, not a political statement. However, I acknowledge that sadly we live in a world where not everybody feels the same. My family and I will help the good fight continue until that long awaited moment arrives, when our rights are equal and when the political limits on love have been smashed.
Yesterday I saw my friend ‘like’ a FB post of Anne Hathaway talking about gay rights. I have huge respect for those who love on their beloved and stand up for what they believe in, yet may I propose that love is not only loving on someone or something you agree with, but that real love comes when you love on that person regardless of whether you agree with what they stand for or not.
Please be patient and give me till the end of this post if you’re getting agitated and think this is a post about whether homosexuality is right or wrong, this is a post about what I thinklove is. Yes, you’ll have to brace yourself because I’m going to throw some Bible verses around, but I feel I can only explain my views if I share from my core values.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you… If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? – Matthew 4:43-44, 46-47
A little background information – back in those days, tax collectors were seen as the bad guys, perhaps just like the government of HK these days. My understanding of this passage is that it’s hard to be good to those you love, even those who you may think are evil do it: corrupt government officials probably still provide for their families, triad bosses may still apologize and ask forgiveness from their spouses, and so on. The real question is: what about the unlovable? What about those you don’t agree with? Continue reading →
