Congrats to Director Hou Hsiao-Hsien for receiving the best director award at Cannes!! Now, I've no idea Mr. Hou seems quite funny even when he looks serious. Witness his jokes at around 3:18 16:45 45:06 ! Wise and very funny man!
Need help from Japanese speakers re 26:33 or it will be our "Lost in Translation" moment where everyone, include the moderator have a good laugh! :)
Will watch the rest later when I have time.

+CUHKJLMCOM 張敏儀女士's (Ms. Cheung Man-yee's) talk is extremely insightful. Her Master class explains so many things so clearly in such a short time!
P.S. And I love yellow scarf & clock (colour of Umbrella Revolution)!

區家麟 said the 9 points so well. Something need to be said to help shine light for some well meaning HongKongers before we are lost in the dark tunnel to hell where we can't find our humanities anymore. Fox hunting is not a spot, neither should lynching a 12 year old boy be cool (regardless of his size and his "crimes"). HongKongers need to pick a better pastime.

近日,有關「懷仔」的新聞,令人火滾︰ 1. 吳克儉局長,仲有教聯,見到極右本土派到小學示威,就撲出來「非常遺憾」,廣西社團總會單嘢,以交流團作餌引導學生拍撐政改影片,又唔見你哋「非常遺憾」,又唔見你出聲,仲話係個別事件。你哋要維護學生,唔該一視同仁。 2. 成件事,陳婉嫻如果從懷仔的前途著想,從一開始就不需要咁高調,全程公開真人騷,為乜?搏掌聲?以嫻姐同政府的關係,根本不需要咁做。 3. 十二歲的懷仔,不論外表,不論佢身世,不論...

Preheat toaster oven to 400F. Keep watch carefully for your own oven.
We heat the four tiny bars for ~3 minutes. They may stay white for a while but when they go brown, it burns super quick! So, for that 2-3.5 minutes, you SHOULD be looking at the kit kat very carefully or you may have some burn kit kat! Or worst, fire!
note: We put the kit kat in freezer over night.a
note2: We burned our first batch as I cooked it for may be 30 secs more. They were still tasty but not quite Facebook photo quality!
note 3: We bought our bag in Tokyo Japan for 200 Yen! But it is highway robbery price of over C$5 in Calgary at T&T supermarket, not worth that price if you ask me!

"And, much to the disappointment of his avid fans, Taiwanese master Hou Hsiao-Hsien had to settle for Best Director for his 9th-century-set martial arts film, The Assassin. Somewhat predictably, Hou seemed to split critics into two camps: formalists who were enraptured by his ravishing visuals and traditionalists who bemoaned the diffuse, hard-to-follow plot. The movie’s champions saw it as an ideal Palme d’Or."

We should have known to expect the unexpected from the Coens.

This is one lovely song and I agree with my friend that "張艾嘉老得好靚"! I recently missed a chance to attend a 誠品 talk by 張艾嘉 so that was a bummer. I do hope in the future I will have the chance and pleasure to meet and chat with 張艾嘉! Will see. She has done some great work over the years! Fascinating actress, director and person! She is quite awesome!

Can someone point to qhat exactly the palestinians are doing towards achieving peace with Israel? Since the article clearly implies Israel stands against a peace agreement with the peace loving palestinians

Introduction

For the ten years from 1991 - 2001, Kempton was involved in two of the largest safety & mission critical software projects in Canada: Canadian Automated Air Traffic System for Transport Canada, and then Iris Digital Communications System for the Canadian Department of National Defence.

For the ten years from 2001 - 2011, Kempton recharged his battery by getting an MBA, made a nationally archived feature-length documentary, and has been taking different paths in trying to be good in things that interested him.
