TV Dramas I am Watching

Besides baking, my hobby is to watch Chinese/Cantonese TV drama serials. Lately I’ve been watching Dreams Link 又见一帘幽梦,a drama produced in China. This drama serial is based on a book by Qiong Yao 琼瑶, 一帘幽梦. If you like soppy love dramas, this drama is for you. This version of 一帘幽梦 is certainly better than the previous one in the 1990s – slightly less melodramatic and much better-looking leads.

Because of this drama, I came to like Alex Fong 方中信, or rather his character Fei Yun Fan 费云帆. Fei Yun Fan is such a true gentleman and romantic guy that I think such a person only exists in the world of storybooks…. *dreamy smile*

Because of Alex Fong’s excellent portrayal of Fei Yun Fan (at least in my humble opinion), I watched another TVB drama helmed by him, The Building Blocks of Life 建筑有情天. Well I think I like him better as Fei Yun Fan. While I admire Issac Chung’s (Alex Fong’s character in The Building Blocks of Life) passion for architecture, his love life is certainly a mess. After watching The Building Blocks of Life, I have the following thoughts:

  • How things turn out is dependent on a person’s reaction. A person’s action can cause a particular reaction; but if he adopted another action, the reaction would be different and the results could be vastly different.
  • As a person grows or immerses himself into a different environment, his thinking, his tastes and preferences will change. So even if it’s his habit/love for the past 7 years, anything can change….Nothing is forever or cast in stone…..

What shall I watch next?
