Mark & Spencer TV ads

2007 Winter

2006 Winter

When I watched the 2007 series for the first time, I like the 50's setting that the story happened. Especially the girls sitting on the stool for the clothes desmonstration, and girl in the middle(hey, she is the daughter of Rolling Stone Rock Star, Mick Jagger and once-supermodel, Jerry Hall)waves her hand, it's kinda cute, isn't it? This scene reminds me of the movie that starred by Marilyn Monroe, How to marry a millionaire. It was nice and sweet.

This advertisement is shown like a usual TV-commercial in HK, it is a short version. The complete version will have Antonio Banderas as the 大茄, futhermore, Twiggy and Erin in the ad too, I think it is more than a typical one.

But the most funny and skeptical wordings in the ad is:

the story of FIVE girls who ALL WANT the same thing for Christmas...


Mm, even the glamourous girls liked they are looking for nice clothes! Gosh...

I would pick more daisies too!

I am 120% agree with seewhy's post at her blog.

Can we just NOT take things too seriously?

When someone is getting more serious, I cannot help but really want to tease him or her...I don't really mean it, but straight face make me nervous. "You cannot make a mistake" seems burnt on their faces. Oh, leave me alone...I am not gonna mess things up, don't worry!

I think you are right, that attitude determines our lives. I wanted to live with a fun and happy manner. Hey, I laugh doesn't make me to become a joke. I laugh does not necessarily mean I am not serious.

I don't want to explain myself, I hate this. It makes things worse if you are asked to explain yourself in the first place, I'd rather shut up and leave people to have their judgement. It is their business of how they seeing things.

Hey! I would pick more daisies, same here! hey, I have no daisy icon, I pick whatever I can! haha

Disconnect! not only with internet...

Damn! What has happened? Server in our office was unable to connect to internet this morning, I was bored! I am glad I am able to post anything through internet now.

The technical people are still trying to retrieve the server, I supposed, but nothing seems to be helpful. It is not unusuak for these technical defection.

I was so reluctant to go to work this morning. I didn't put pn any makeup, did not prepare a pair of nice clothes and therefore I am able to go to work early in the morning. It is not because I want to go to work but it seems that I have no choice and I dont want to think how much I did not want to go to work.

Not to think, the best solution is to stick to routine and so here I am! 8:42am showed up in office.

X'mas 2007

Hi all,

2007 X'mas has just over, what have you done in these few days? I didn't do anything, it seems like too few for doing anything fun and interesting except sleep.

I feel like working in factory...like a prisoner...when I think of work tomorrow, I jsut can't get rid of that feeling, it is horrible. Things are not running smooth at work, It seems to have changed in one day. It is troublesome enough and now in addition to the small stuff, it bugs me! I hate bugs.

I went to church at X'mas Eve for midnight mass. We used to go to TST Rosary Church but there are always tooooo many people and I needed to be somewhere else so we went to the one near my home finally. It's nice, the speech that father gave that night was also interesting and humorous enough to amuse lots of people.

Apart from that, I spent most of the time in front of TV for movies after movies, I have watched 3, one is Dark is rising, sthg like that, not v popular Holywood one but something similar to adventure and imaginative movie, the other two are Take the Lead and Charlie Angels! Ooh, one more, Fight Club. I like watching movies, maybe just liked 王佳芝, you forget everythings that bother you in fornt of the big screen. There are only stories and the stories that you love, you world is only full these suddenly. No worries, no sadness and disappointments.

Today I went to MK to buy a nice underwear for the banquet coming Friday. I am still have not decided what dress I should wear that night. I like wearing nice dress, however, we need to take the cab in the middle of traffic from CWB then all the way to Aberdeen, seem too far away, isn't it?The point is, we don't drive! Who cares if me and my fds drive!

After the rush shopping, I head back to home to meet family for the 工展會 tonight. I supposed we are just only window shopping, but we have spent a few hundred dollars at the end. We all happy with what we get, 滿載而歸. We have bought a food processor that able to make soya drink, juice. It can also help to mince the meat, crash the hard stuff such as 田七 into powder...It is very attractive! Then we have got other food such as olive oil, olive oil soap, soy sauce, chinese soup packs...mainly are daily commodities. I seldom do that in the past time, I mean I don't go to 工展會、美食展, I will never queue for food try,..now, I do ALL of these. I have an idea that I should do everything before I die, I supposed I am getting old...OMG

Some thoughts...

Be Mindful During Meditation

Give your mind a rest.
Please give your cell phone a rest, as well.
When you leave early,
Others' attention leaves with you.
Please stay until the bell invites you to leave.
When you walk, take one step with each breathe.
Nor more, no less.
Don't rush...there is no place you are trying to get to.
However, when others must stand still behind you, they are not walking.
Moving to make yourself comfortable,
Can make others uncomfortable.
Please try to move mindfully only when necessary.
Be friends with your cough and bring it a treat.
If it does not want to leave, take your cough for a walk.
If you want to return, wait for a bell to invite you back.

The Dharma Discussion

If you are asked for advice, give only what is yours to give...
your own practice.
When you share, share with the sangha
and not just one member.
If you ask for advice,
Do not expect to receive it.
If you have a question about the practice,
Perhaps it is better answered after the Dharma discussion
Encourage the question to become part of the discussion;
Not the answer.
Does your sharing invite others to share,
Or does it serve to silence others?

Encourage the question to become part of the discussion;
......Does your sharing invite others to share,
Or does it serve to silence others?











甚麼時候「天真」變成了負面詞語﹖ 變成了一個空洞的笑容﹖

I accidentally found a brit band called McFly which is extremely popular in UK now. Their music is really pop and catchy and the most amazing thing is they SING341 very very well. The music they play at home with acoustic guitars are much much better than they have in MVs, you can watch them at official website.  It sounds more natural and friendly. Their music is liked Beatles as well.

I always have no idea of how actresses fall in love with directors, singers going out with producers and roadies... I have got the answer for cinema people when I was in university, and I realize the special chemistry of the musicians from the boys when I was watching the video.

It's nice and warm to have a few frds but are very close, gather at someone's house doing something that really love, jamming music is always the best and wonderful. Details of McFly, please click here.

I read NME when was checking through the details of McFly. Does anyone know what is it? 410 It is an UK magazine about the brtipop scenes and new music. Its paper is liked newspaper, kinda differerent from other pop magazines. It is different from US Smash-hits. It has more comments and materials of the UK alternative music scenes. Alongside with NME, there is another one which is also reproting similar things, unfortuantely I forgot the name. It seems no longer available in the market anyway. I was a regualr reader of it also with The Face, i-D as well. After all these years, the Face is no longer exist, and i-D seems not that edgy anymore as more and more magazine coming up.

I was a magazine-manics as I really love reading magazines very much. From entertainments such as US Weekly, People (US gossips), Hello! (UK gossips, sometimes Australian as well!) to woman magazines, such as Vogue (both UK and US versions,  Italien and Paris are just too expensive to afford), ELLE, Cosmospolitian (not HK ones), Harper's Bazaar (US), Harpers and Queen, Glamour, Seventeen (sometimes). Apart from these, I read Wallpaper, IDN as well, though not a regular reader. I also read surfing and skateboarding magazines too. Crazy...gosh! Oh, another one pops into my mind, TIME magazines, Psychology Today,...for a more rational mind. Don't read Newsweek, it is just too US, the opinions are too stupid, not good at all, TIME has the same problem now unfortunately.

Too much to share, too little time, gotta back to work. Cheers

有一個穿黃色冷衫既阿伯係海中載浮載沉,有人不斷叫「有人跳海呀!」大家係船上遠遠觀望果位阿伯,好似睇電視咁。有個阿叔係隔離淡定地倚在欄杆旁「指揮」大局﹕「d水手去x左邊呀!救人啦!x! x事呀!x,阿伯識游水架啵!」船上既人都好緊張,包括我。突然之間自覺要做返d去幫人,因為我唔識游水,又唔識得救人,我問個阿叔﹕「駛唔駛報警呀﹖」阿叔話﹕「唔駛啦!佢識得游水喎!」於是我又再觀察多陣。阿叔又講野﹕「x!水手係度做x野呀﹖救人呀!」水手真係好猶豫,我個心都開始焦急起來,我見到阿伯兩手係水面蛙式咁爬左陣,後來有人拋個水泡落去,佢都冇理會。冇耐就有水手跳去救佢喇!446

In Her Shoes

Do you have a sister? I am not sure if those who have sister may share the same connection as te movie does, I don;t have a sister, however, I was "grown up" in girl school since 6 until 18, I think I should know the bonds, the struggles, the jealousy, the boundaries and all that girlie's stuff what the movie talks about.

It is a movie about two sisters who lost their mother when they were very young...OK, I better save your time by clicking here if you want o know the whole story.

I think it is a beautiful story because you can see two persons grwoth. To see someone's growth is one of the most beautiful thing in this world. To see someone become her/himself is one of the most touching moments too. And the most beautiful thing in the story is, though the differences tore them apart, they stay together, Because they carry each other in the heart.

There are two poems in the movie, I love both. Unfortuantely I can only find the first one,

One Art    
by Elizabeth Bishop

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

--Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied.  It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master

though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

Loss, is a traumatic feeling and experience, trust me, I know the feeling. To accept the loss is never easy. But we are losing something, sometime, day by day, moment by moment. To accept your loss and therefore long for another new thing. This is hope. Hope can be found in love.


Toni Collette 雖然唔係勁大靚女,但好多戲佢有份參與。亦係因為咁,所以唔少戲雖有份參與,但一定唔會係主角,甚至可以話係出色既葉22。近期既戲係Evening,佢扮演一個憤怒妹妹,成個頭染到紅曬咁,同埋一個半頹廢既男友陪件就黎終老既好媽媽身旁。仲有之前一套Little Miss Sunshine, 就係一個好supportive,但係typical既美國媽媽,另外最有印象既就係About A Boy裏面果個巔巔地,情緒成日失控既阿媽......睇佢d戲愈多,就愈覺得佢好~~~勁。佢可以話係扮乜似乜,係Evening同LMS入面,你以為佢係美國人,但係aab入面,你更加唔會懷疑佢其實唔係英國人。睇返佢既profile,估唔到原來連sixth sense佢都有份,可惜我真係冇印象。

點解我對呢個人咁深刻呢﹖其實我都唔係好記得,第一次認識佢既電影就係呢套Muriel's Wedding. 入面講佢係一個肥婆,最後嫁得出,大約係咁。但係戲入面佢扮肥婆既冇自信、失魂、心地善良、天真同最後嫁得出果種由個心度笑出黎,當全世界既人係死既果種喜,可以話係發揮得淋漓盡致!就好似爽浪香口膠果個廣告入面,個新娘bark左粒鈕出黎後大叫「我願意!」咁興奮!

The other day I went to Harbour City with G 255

There is a small village built in the shopping centre, like a northern small Europe town 22

I have watched the movie "The heardbreak Kid" last night, It was such a crap!427 Though there is a saying in Cantonese, "橋唔怕舊,最緊要受",however, it is not successful in his new movie. It is the same old joke which many men found interesting way back to 1998, when people thought Ben Stiller is a comedy geninus, and Diaz was the hottest girl in the world, There's something about Mary.

156 仲記唔記得個索女呀!《情迷索瑪利》喎!

 156 上次紅左索瑪利,今次呢個索性兩點畢露,彈唔彈得起睇佢造化。

154 Ben Stiller好興係套戲度扮d騎離人,通常都係怕怕羞羞,其實含苞待放,一觸即發。(左﹕TSAM內扮演個性內向但心地善良的無知少年。成年後變成右﹕成個白頭佬咁既外表斯文,內裏開放既咸濕大滾友。)

麻甩係Ben Stiller離唔開既主題,而麻甩亦有上下等之分,通常佢都有個稍為好佢少少既buddy,另外就女性都係簡單到既二分法,一係令人嘔電都嘔唔切既八婆,另一類就係佢心目中既女神。八婆們既存在係用黎襯托女神有幾矜貴,就好似葉一樣,唔止,係被佢係套戲度糟質到都連爛泥都不如!而佢既buddy呢﹖唔駛問,都係用黎襯托呢個下等麻甩其實都有佢可愛既地方~~~17

上次有個整容阿媽,今次就有個巓喪老婆。其實佢「老婆」原本都好索架。 但係結左婚之後就唔知點解突然走樣,喪野都走曬出黎,仲要係Ben Stiller原來係受害者!後來畀佢遇到個「真愛」,到左最後,原來男人始終都係麻甩,死性不改。

睇完套戲,一D都唔覺得好笑,就係因為我唔係麻甩。記得之前睇過一堆短片,都係用男人黎開玩笑既,再正如幾世前既Full Monty, 係男人睇完都話中正男人既心聲,oh sorry! I don't get it!


講返套戲,睇返佢地個official website,原來套戲被譽為全美國最好笑既電影之一。我地香港版原來有d shots係剪走左,但都係無所大雅的畫面。不過覺得套戲好得美國佬,開d基佬玩笑呀、扮mexican走佬既慘況呀、d靚仔克人憎腰心腰肺既寸咀呀......一d都唔係咁好笑。仲覺得有d過份添!

It was kinda depressing this morning as I am really tired, and secondly lots of good things happen, but not for me406.  I envy of them indeed, it is because I seem like being stuck at here<--it does not necessarily mean the place where I am staying but the space and the time as well.

2007 is going to be over very soon. What have you done in this year? What things you wanna start but never finish at last? There are a few incidents happen to me, not many, but huge, significant enough to rock my boat, to swept me from head to toe.

It is a huge thing...the changes. I am not dared enough to touch the feelings at this moment. I might need to make a photo album as a remembrance of this part of my life. I need to have a checklist of myself, what to do and what;s not.

  • Travel
  • Money
  • Work
  • Family

This summer I have practised the real mindfulness training. Before that I never thought I could able to sit down and meditate for over 1 minute. The training is not really a training indeed, it is only rituals or ceremony frequently practised in Buddha Community. It is reciting (loudly, some really do)prayers printed on book in the hall altogether at the same time, the prayer book named 地藏經. People, evenly elderly can recite them quickly without really reading the book. There are sort of 13 chapters which is talking about the hell and the reason be there. I thought it was easy to recite the things, however, it is extremely difficult to recite them fast and without pause moment, I need to concentrate on the book vvvvv much in order to catch up with others instead of slowing reading the prayers word by word. this is when and where I learnt mindfulness.

What is mindfulness?
You are not your thoughts. Thoughts take us away from being here now. If I am thinking about the past, or worried about the future, I am a prisoner of my thoughts. When I take a moment to observe myself having thoughts, I am no longer the thoughts. I get to be and observe at the same time. That's why if I continue to come back to my breath which always occurs in the here and now, it draws me into the present. From that vantage point I can observe as past and future attempt to draw me away from the moment. This paying attention to the here and now, to the breath, to the observing one's thoughts without being critical or judgmental is what many people call Mindfulness.

 UN World Food Program - FreeRice

Here are some info I copied from the website:

About FreeRice
FreeRice is a sister site of the world poverty site,

FreeRice has two goals:

  1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
  2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

This is made possible by the sponsors who advertise on this site.

Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your vocabulary can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.

Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank you.371

尋日去香港文化中心大劇院睇瑞文,可能因為同林奕華合作既關係,今次既演出都「非常林奕華」。整個節目長達三小時,連中場休息。瑞文個人台上one man show,飾演與林眼中的「師奶」。節目分開多個小段進行,侍一段扮演不同角色,並以多首當年的主打流行曲穿插其中,務求recall我地既memory,帶出「師奶台」全盛時期的集體回憶。
