Ti-am dat beep, si sunt voinic,
Dar sa stii nu-ti cer nimic.

Vrei sa pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei,

Chipul tau si dragostea din tei,
Mi-amintesc de ochii tai.

Te sun, sa-ti spun, ce simt acum,
Alo, iubirea mea, sunt eu, fericirea.
Alo, alo, sunt iarasi eu, Picasso,
Ti-am dat beep, si sunt voinic,
Dar sa stii nu-ti cer nimic.

Vrei sa pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma, nu ma iei.
Chipul tau si dragostea din tei,
Mi-amintesc de ochii tai.
Vrei sa pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma, nu ma iei.
Chipul tau si dragostea din tei,
Mi-amintesc de ochii tai.

Ma-ia-hii, Ma-ia-huu, Ma-ia-hoo, Ma-ia-haa

Vrei sa pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma iei,

Hello [on a cellphone], greetings, it's me, an outlaw,

Dicey Business Review

Picture Credits: TVFanSquare, TVBCity

My boycott of TVB was put on hold due to DB. Its the must watch series for me.

Story

Great plot with many twists and interesting characters.

Bobby

Cute and alittle hot-headed he makes the perfect protagonist. You know how sometimes the protagonist is so perfect he seems unrealistic, well in here Bobby isn't anywhere near perfect, but with his good heart and determination he turns his life around.

Jessica

She's so funny and nice, but I don't like her for betraying Bobby. I feel like so many people hurt Bobby, but he ends up forgiving all of them. Perhaps he's too nice. And I don't like her at the beginning when she was so obsessed with Micheal. She seemed desperate and needy.

Michael

How evil. He's like a cunning plotting evil who would do anything to reach his goal. But I guess he still has a heart seeing how hard he tried to save that other dude (forgot his name).

Bosco

At first Bosco was funny and cute as the unsocial nerd, but after he got rich and became successful he turned cocky and mean. I hate that he was so cruel to Bobby, using Bobby's love for him to help Michael.

Tavia

Shallow and superficial, but she still has a good heart. Tavia did a great job as usual. I still like her as the tomboy in Yummy Yummy.

Chemistry

Bobby and Jess

They're so hilarious and cute, but Bobby's still too good for her.

Michael and Jess

I'm not convinced he ever loved her, but she sure loved him. Cheating on Bobby...how mean.

Bosco and Bobby

I was laughing so hard when Bosco thought Bobby was gay. And he actually thought he might be gay himself.

Bosco and Tavia

They're so compatible. I can't wait to see them in Heart of Greed.

Overall

Dicey's a great series. I love everything about it other than the fact that Bobby gets hurt too much. But the plot is interesting and the relationship between the characters are good too. But the poster's kinda disappointing for the series.

Price of Greed Review

Picture Credits: TVB City and TVFanSquare and K for TVB





One word, disappointed. I heard about Samuel being evil and Shirley playing a mute and was quite interested, but Kate really ruined everything for me. The plot sucked in the beginning, got alittle better in the middle, and the end was ok.

Bosco

I love Bosco's character. He's so smart and kind and funny. I especially love how he cares for his family. Eventhough he fights with Kingdom alot its tough love and they reconciliate for Shirley. They're so funny together.


Samuel

I like Samuel and I'm so sad to see him leave TVB. He was ok in here. His character was evil, but I always believed there was a reason behind it, not just greed. I guess I should pay more attention to the title.

Kate



Kate got on my nerves the whole time. Her crying was not convincing and her expressions were really plain. I don't think she's pretty at all. Don't know why TVB is promoting her so much. And now I have to put up with her in Brink of Law. blehh.

Shirley



Next to Kate, Shirley shined. She was adorable and she pulled off the whole mute thing really well. I love her crying scenes and her character is the best. She's so kind-hearted and sweet. I really wanted her to talk again.

Chemistry

Bosco and Kate



I don't know what Bosco sees in Kate. At the beginning she was so needy and insane, how could he love her?

Sam and Kate



I actually like them better than Bosco and Kate eventhough Sam doesn't love Kate. I really thought for a a teeny tiny little second that Sam loved Kate.

Bosco and Shirley



I was hoping with all my heart that Bosco would pick Shirley, but my heart broke for her. I cried when Shirley made a paper airplane and wished for everyone's happiness. I still love how he always cares for her and she for him.

Bosco, Shirley, and Kingdom

A close, but rather strange family. I love the beginning story where Bosco and Shirley get kidnapped and rescued by Kingdom. I think that's the best part of the series, to see how they came to love eachother.

I think the plot is interesting, but too messy. If you take out some parts and replace some actors *cough*kate*cough* it could've been a really good series, but....I repeat, disappointed.

Glittering Days Review

Picture Credits: TvFanSquare


I don't like the title, but the story's very touching.

Liza

Stubborn, hot headed, and tough, she only wants the best for her son. Liza's very funny and always delivers.

Roger

I wish he did his own singing, but lip syncing is cool too. Roger's so funny.

Charmaine

Charmaine is like the highlight of the show. From her first appearance with the braids and clogs to her singing performance. I think Charmaine did a good job in this role, the singin and all.

Songs


My absolute favorite is Susanna Kwan's "Only Live a Day For You", I think that's what its called. I cried when I saw it, then rewind, watched it again and cried some more. Charm's really improved , I love all of her songs. I also like the English songs Chris sings, buy I can't help laughing at his accent. His singing's not bad, but I just find it hilarious. I think the hair adds to the humor.

To Grow With Love Review

Picture Credits: TVFanSquare



I really don't get the point of this series. Is it "Looks don't matter" or "Myolie is a good cryer and she should've won Best Actress"?

Myolie


I feel bad for her not winning Best Actress after she gained so much weight and did really well in here. Good actress, horrible series. Didn't she read the script before signing up?

Andy Hui


I never seen him before, but I think he's ok.

Claire Yui


I liked that TVB didn't make her too evil. She was just the right amount of evil, fair but just alittle selfish.

Selena Li


Selena's really improved. I like her more and more after FTF.


Kenneth Ma

I love his faithfulness and honesty. He's like the perfect guy. I felt so bad for him. Its OK Ken, I'll marry you...Oh wait, I have to marry Bill.


Chemistry


Myolie and Andy - They were cute during Andy's memory loss, but later it just got boring.


Selena and Jack - Somehow I always end up liking the subplot more than the main plot. They're so cute!!


Claire and Andy - I personally think they are cuter than Myolie and Andy.


Myolie and her Dad - They actually look like father and daughter. I love that scene where Myolie's about to marry Kenneth and they're sitting on the balcony crying. It was so sweet.

Story

How many twists and turns can this story have? First he loves her then he doesn't then he does then they fight and somehow they end up together. It just got really ugly after the memory loss thing. Alittle too much.

I'M BACK!!!

I feel so bad. I've been MIA for how long now? Well let me tell you what happened.

My computer got this stupid virus and I almost lost all of my precious files. Took so long for my brother to fix it. Then I just got this crazy obsession for Tokio Hotel, which I'll explain another time, and spent like the last 2 or 3 months liking doing nothing but Tokio Hotel stuff. And I was pretty disappointed with TVB after Price of Greed so I didn't watch any TVB series for like a month or so.

But now I'm back and chicken pecking (broke my finger playing tetherball so I'm handicapped) my way to more updates. Currently working on reviews and stuff so bear with me.

Review: Land of Wealth

Credits to MetaAznWarrior at TVB Musings for the Synopsis and TVfanSquare for the poster.


Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


Cast: Moses Chan, Steven Ma, Sonija Kwok, Tavia Yeung

Synopsis:
Silver, bank notes - the space between power, vanishing the oldThe commercial war joins the stage. Exciting the soul, frightening the heart!

Chai Bak Chuen (Moses Chan Ho) is a descendent of a government official. His family was framed and sentenced to beheading, but luckily, he managed to survive and escape. He becomes the disciple of Kiu Boon Yip (John Chiang Dai Wai), the boss of Shanxi's first bank, Ding Fung Sing.

Chuen realizes that Ba Ba Ha Yi Ko Wai (Sonija Kwok Sin Nei) is a foreigner because she feels inferior, so doesn't dare to show her love. Meanwhile, the Kiu's second young mistress, Kiu Jun (Tavia Yeung Yi) and the military aircraft official, Cheung Sung Man (Steven Ma Chun Wai) love each other. However, the couple's relationship, because Man has to impartially investigate Ding Fung Sing, meets conflicts.

On one occasion, Ding Fung Sing suffers from big storekeeper Cho Yu Tai's (Lau Dan) frame, almost causing them to go out of business. The imperial court doesn't end harsh laws and furthermore, it asks Ding Fung Sing to keep inflating money. Before Yip's death, he hands Ding Fung Sing to Chuen, who time and time again helped him to overcome difficulties. The merchant fights with wealth, government officials fight still with power. How can Chuen lead Ding Fung Sing in facing the corrupt late Qing government?

The Good
Costumes!!! - Like I said in my First Impressions, the costumes are really beatiful. I loved Tavia's costume from the start, and later on, when they get rich, Moses and Sonija has a nice wardrobe too. I also like Sonija's Mongolian outfit. I think, Steven just looks ok in his clothes. And Moses's hat really fits him.

Themesongs - When I first heard the themesong, I thought Moses sang it, but when I downloaded it, I found it was Eason Chan. He's pretty good. The beat of the song and everything really fits with the series. The subsong by Moses is nice too, but I couldn't find the full version of it. They don't play it that much.

The Ending clip - I really liked that they played the dramatic and important clips from the series at the end. Paired with the subsong, it makes me sad to see it end.

The Bad
Too Draggy - It was quite draggy in the beginning, but when John Chiang died, the story picked up more pace, and it got interesting.

Story - It was ok, but nothing special.

Formalness - Everyone was so nice and formal. They did have some funny parts, but it was that funny.

Chemistry
Moses and Sonija - They do look quite good together, but I thought they're love story lacked drama. I mean, having your girlfriend marry your boss is quite dramatic, but some how they made it boring.

Steven and Tavia - Sweet, but tragic. Somehow, I just feel that perhaps they're love isn't strong enough to with stand challenges and Steven loves Tavia more.

Tavia and Moses - Even though they didn't love eachother when they married, I believe Tavia fell in love with Moses. I'm not sure, but it sure seemed like it when she was dying in his arms. That was sad.

C it or Skip it?
Its an ok series, but if you want something light-hearted and funny, definitely skip it. If your interested in government and banking(yeah right) you should watch it. Tavia fans will like this one, she's so pretty in here. I don't like Moses or Steven in here. Sonija is just ok.

A Look Back at 2006

Happy New Year's Eve!! 2006 sure went by fast, alot of things have happened in TVB. 2007 is approaching fast, lets look at what happened in 2006.

Return to TVB
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us Image Hosted by ImageShack.us Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

This year, alot of stars have comeback to TVB. Ada Choi, Maggie Siu. and Kevin Cheng have started filming again. Ada did Dance of Passion, but it was suprisingly unsuccessful, although the audience loved her performance, now Ada is starring in Exquisite Beauty set to release in 07. Maggie Siu was also in DOP, and she also did CIB Files, even though it was quite forgettable, her fans were glad to see her back and to prove that she's still got it. Kevin had a very good year, winning the Best Actor at TVB Anniversary, and having 2 successful series. Trimming Success was first warehoused, but when it aired, it was a hit, and Under the Canopy of Love did well too.

Scandals
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


The HK Press have really gone far this year with photos of Gillian Chung changing. This made the publice outraged and people started petitions and the artistes spoke out about it. Alot of crazy things happened, Yumiko Cheng's over exposure and Ella Koon getting harrassed by a fan onstage. The reporters went sure had a good year, creating rumors of rivalry between the stars, and celebrity hook-ups and break-ups, along with Sammul Chan's recent "Betrayal" controversy. It really shows the audience, that maybe being famous isn't so great.

TVB 39th Anniversary

The TVB Anniversary Awards was shocking to all, as Kevin Cheng won Best Actor, and Charmaine Sheh grabbed Favorite Female Character and Best Actress, leaving Myolie Wu empty handed. Linda Chung won Most Improved Actress, Kenneth Ma received Most Improved Actor, Shirley Yeung got Best Supporting Actress, Kenny Wong Best Supporting Actor, Steven Ma won Favorite Male Character, and LFD got Best Series. Which are deserving, which aren't are left for the fans to decided for themselves.

The Higher You Fly, The Harder You Fall
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


Much hyped series like Lethal Weapons of Love and Passion and Maiden's Vow all proved to be disappointments in ratings. Perhaps the most disappointing of all is Dance of Passion, the so-called sequel to the very successful War and Beauty, with ratings as low as the 20's. While warehoused series like Trimming Success was a big hit when it was aired.

La Femme Desperado
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


Lets not forget the biggest series of the year. LFD received the highest ratings and brought its cast, Melissa Ng, Sheren Tang, Raymond Lam, and Micheal Tse, much fame and attention. The series focuses on hardships of women, with its charming dialogue and interesting story line, LFD truly deserves the Best Series Award at the 39th TVB Anniversary.
