When I was young I did not understand melancholy.
I just wanted to climb, higher and higher.
Nowadays I understand the taste of melancholy.
I want to talk about it, but I give up even before I try.

It's a little sad to see Carina Lau finally being awarded Best Actress for her role in Detective Dee. She was good, but the role IMO barely even qualifies as a supporting role, yet alone a lead. The acknowledgment is too late I'm afraid, and comes off as a condolence prize for all her previous nominations.

And as for Aaron Kwok, I know he is infamous for his bizarre outfits, but this one really takes the cake.

You're probably right. I haven't seen Detective Dee yet, but I'm still glad to see her win. Better to be acknowledged later in life than never. Anyway, awards are mysterious things... ;D

I have to agree with Duriandave - Carina was good in "Detective Dee", but she seemed more like a supporting role in the movie.

I like the video on RazorTV about Zhao Wei. Singapore's one of my favorite places to visit and I'm glad she likes it too (although I can think of more places that she should take her guests to visit). :)
