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!!!
Hahaha ummm hello, sorry, heh… I’m guessing I should never say this, but I completely forgot about the blog for a week.
I’M SORRY!! Please don’t be mad :p
I spent the last week doing back to back interviews to promote my new drama “Beauty at War” (金枝慾孽貮). I would do a few interviews on the same day and for some we needed two outfits. Basically that means I had LOTS of clothes and shoes and make up and tank tops and socks and water bottle and phone charger and all that stuff to drag all around Hong Kong. It came as a surprise to me when I was COMPLETELY knackered at the end of the second day. Seriously, how do people do it everyday all the time?! I’m telling ya, actresses totally don’t just look pretty and sit in front of the camera for a living.
Coming this Monday – April 22, 9:30pm on TVB Jade!
I’ve had some small roles in other Dynasty drama’s here and there, but this is the first time I’ve been part of the main cast. It was such an experience from learning how to stand and speak, to trying not to lose it wearing that costume under the 38C heat in Hengdian, China. Can you believe I wore the same costume for four to five months? Sexy.
“In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors! I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I’m invincible. I don’t want little girls to be like “Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner!” – Jennifer Lawrence
Meet my new heroine: Jennifer Lawrence.
For a while I couldn’t decide if I liked her or not. I wasn’t sure if she was awesome for being her own crazy self, or if she was just thirsty for attention; but when I saw this quote I admired her. These days it takes a lot of courage for an actress to say something this, whether she eventually succumbs to the pressure to be thin not. Perhaps she can say this because she is Jennifer Lawrence, but I really hope she is Jennifer Lawrence today because she stands up for what she believes.
I’ve been told I am someone who stands up for what I think is right, but when it comes to being thin, I get stung a lot and I back down quite easily. I don’t think I’m fat, but as soon as I say this I get the look that says (or people actually say), “are you serious?! You don’t think you’re fat?!” – and this is where I shut off and start feeling fat and ugly. Well now that I’m writing all this and no one is here to stop me, I’d like to say, yes, I don’t think I’m fat, I don’t think I’m stick-skinny, and those things are really quite different.
Production for the new drama “好心作怪” started, and even though I’ve been having fun shooting it, I can’t deny that I don’t know how to manage stress. Over the last two weeks there’s been more than two occasions where I thought I was actually going crazy.
Sometimes I look at people and think that they have it all together. I know that can’t be true, but that’s how I fee sometimes. I wonder if anyone looks at me and thinks the same thing. If any such person exists I’d be more than happy to tell you my flaws and issues then we’d see how delusional we’ve been and see that we’re all imperfect and there’s no need to want to be anyone but ourselves.
Anyway, I was dead serious when I said I don’t know how to manage stress. What do you guys do? You know what was really scary for me? I don’t quite know what I really enjoy doing. A lot of things, like exercise and watching tv are more of a distraction than something that really relaxes me, and that’s pretty annoying when you’re super tense and do all these stuff that doesn’t even really help. Well, that was a lie. They help, but kind of just helps you get by instead of truly refreshing you. Does that make any sense?
