何韻詩豪擲百萬開回顧展
【明報專訊】何韻詩昨透露4月1日至7日將於銅鑼灣舉行個人回顧展,自資7位數開設「菇屋」,除展出私人珍藏外,還有其人形公仔的USB記憶棒售賣,當中收錄了她的作品。阿詩說:「價錢暫時未定,預計可回本,算是小試牛刀,知道Fans會幾喜歡。」會在場內作生招牌?「未必日日去,會失驚無神去巡視。」
 
談到派台新歌《韻律泳》,阿詩說:「是講自己感情事,以往是跳水的插水式,不顧後果及任何損傷。現在受過傷後已懂得處理,要配合別人的力度及速度。」上次感情受傷已入行?「當然,對方以為我走型格路線,誰不知是貼身膏藥,當時不足1星期便分手,好可憐的完全奉獻出去。」是否身心全部奉獻?「這些要大家自己去想了!」
 
It sucks that I never get to go to HK for any of her important events  But I’d definitely get someone to help me with this USB thingy!!! Also looking forward to listening to her new song… (One of my "sacrifices" for Lent is to abstain from going to her forum  I’ll go find a radio version of the song to listen in 10 days!!!)
 
 

周海媚自嘲老牌新人
重返無線演江湖阿嫂  

【明報專訊】離開無線10年的周海媚,最近決定回巢搏殺,並以劇集《學警狙擊》作為回歸無铫第一炮作品,今次她亦一改戲路,在劇中化身江湖阿嫂,又會跟扮演反派的苗僑偉和謝天華大搞三角關係,務求帶來新鮮感。周海媚昨日為新劇試造型時明顯狀態大勇,又自嘲老牌新人,與同劇演員打成一片。

周海媚、苗僑偉(三哥)、吳卓羲、陳鍵鋒、江若琳、謝天華、梁嘉琪昨齊集電視城為新劇《學警狙擊》試造型,席間演員逐一自我介紹時,周海媚自嘲重返無線當老牌新人,但會於劇中演舉足輕重的江湖阿嫂,即時獲劇中老公苗僑偉率領全體藝人拍手歡迎,各人又起哄高呼她「阿嫂」,令周海媚哈哈大笑,並回敬﹕「大家聽教聽話啦。」

三哥染白髮演壞蛋

周海媚表示自98年拍罷《天地豪情》已離開了無線10年,其實公司前後4、5次向她招手合作,奈何檔期不配合,直至最近終於等到機會。問她該劇如何吸引她?她笑說﹕「有得同三哥合作,我和他有感情線,重會搞三角關係。」講到劇中不少年輕演員,周海媚指曾看過吳卓羲和陳鍵鋒演出的劇集,故對他們最有印象。三哥指自己形象正氣,故今次特別染白髮來演壞人來增加說服力。對於周海媚說為他而回巢拍劇?三哥笑說:「多謝她,我都幾隨和,容易相處的。」他指目前未知與周海媚有否接吻戲,若然劇情需要絕對無問題。

吳卓羲今次將會變身臥底,與售賣盜版碟的江若琳成為情侶。問到他們怕不怕傳緋聞?吳卓羲說:「不怕,工作至上,我會用心去拍。」而陳鍵鋒則升職為見習督察,談到戲中與周海媚有不少對手戲?他說﹕「好期待,但對覑偶像演戲都好大壓力。」

 

When I was like 10, I was a huge fan of 周海媚. Some of her shows like 回到未嫁時、今生無悔etc, I’ve watched for countless times!! Can’t wait to see this show…

領悟一大籮

Since the beginning of this year, I’ve gained quite a few insights during various occasions. To help me remember those better, let me record them here:
 
1. Fix your gaze at Jesus
 
On the New Year’s day in NYC, I was touring around some churches. Since I was a tourist, I paid attention to things that I don’t normally notice. I was looking at the Nativity scene. I noticed the manger with Baby Jesus was located on the far right. Shepherds and all kinds of animals are forming a line on the left, all of them (animals included) were looking straight at the direction of Jesus. What struck me was that even animals know that’s the right thing to do  So I should probably do that too.
 
2. Hard work for the body strengthens the soul
 
I joined quite a few classes offered by the community centre during the past few months. I joined kick-boxing and rock climbing. (Besides that there is the regular hip hop class that I STILL go to.) And thanks to the heavy snowfall, I work out a lot more than usual.
 
There are 2 parts to it:
-Cardio/physically demanding workout trains NOT just physical endurance, it strengthens the spirit too. I find kick-boxing and shovelling fall into this category. I pay so much more respect to professional atheletes now. How much mental power they need to sustain to keep pushing themselves to do better!!
-Certain types of physical activities are not as demanding, rather, they require a calm mind. I find rock-climbing & hip hop fall into this category. Failing to climb/dance pretty much reflects my mind/mood is all screwed up. During one particular rock-climbing session, I kept trying to climb a not-really-hard wall for like 4 times, I just couldn’t climb at all! One week later, when I was back to that same wall, I could climb to ok high in no time… This reveals that I need to learn to manage my emotions/mood better…
 
3. Keep your vision clear, don’t let anything influence it
 
I took a creative photography class offered by City of Richmond Hill. (The course has 3 clases, and I missed 1. ) The instructor is really nice~~ During 1 of the 2 classes, he mentioned that he doesn’t drink or smoke. He wants to make sure his vision is not affected by anything. The ability to see people/things as what they truly are is terribly important.
 
4. I work too hard
 
Being hard-working is supposed to be a virtue. However, I find that I sorta see my value based on the amount of work that I do, as well as my accomplishments. This is unhealthy. I’m in the process of convincing my heart not to fall into this trap…
 
5. See beyond your prejudice
 
Prejudice is an unfavorable opinion against a person/a group. Recognizing its existence is the first step to stop its influence. I’ve got a pretty bad impression of X after several encounters with him/her. I know the prejudice is there.
 
I started using a book called "God, I have issues" recently in my prayers. It provides bible readings & prayer pointers indexed by moods. One night, I prayed about my prejudice, I want to stop judging people. And naturally, I was reminded of X in my prayer. God probably did listen to my prayer. My most recent encounters with X have been so much better than in the past. After this, I come the conclusion that:
 
-Everyone has qualities that are tended to be mis-judged by others. People who don’t know you well are likely to form -ve judgement about you based on those qualities.
-Try your best to see beyond those qualities that you dislike about this person. It’d make you happy when you see your "glasses got dropped to the ground".
