Star Awards 2010 (红星大奖 2010): THE RESULTS


The annual Star Awards is here again! Has it really been a year? Time flies. It is also been a while since I put something in this blog and thought I really need to start pay more attentions to this blog (considering that my daytime job is finally on a secured place).

Hopefully, this is a new “start” is my motivation to start writing again.

So, here’s the results for 2010 Star Awards.

* 2010 Best Drama

Together ( 当我们同在一起)

There isn’t a surprise in this category (well, at least for me). I know a lot of the buzz is for “The Housewives Holiday”, but I was rooting for “Together”.

* 2010 Best Actor

Chen Hanwei (陈汉伟)

In all honesty, just like last year, I was hoping for Tay Ping Hui to grab this award. His performance in “The Ultimatum” was brilliant.

But, with “auntie-look Ye Zhengkang” from Chen Hanwei, Tay Pinghui is really up with tough opponent.  With 4th win, Chen Hanwei will soon stand side by side in “Best Actor” record with Xie Shaoguang.

* 2010 Best Actress

Chen Liping ((陈莉萍)

She made it again! She is truly a dark horse in the catagory (since all the focuses were on Ann Kok and Jeannette Aw). Veteran rules! 🙂

* 2010 Best Supporting Actor

Zhu Hou Ren (朱厚任)

Well deserved award! He was brilliant  in “Reunion Dinner”. Adorable yet heartwarming character at the same time. Although, I agree that all nominees delivered their own briliant perfomances, none deserved this award more than Zhu Houren.

* 2010 Best Supporting Actresses

Constance Song (宋怡霏)

This year is truly a “veteran” year! No, she is not a famous star and no, she is your typical idol, but she always delivered a great perfomance for every characters ever thrown at her. Consider her tough opponents in this category, she was the dark horse, but she made it at the end! Another well deserved award.

* 2010 Top 10 Most Popular Actors (alphabetically)

1.  Bryan Wong (王禄江)

2.  Chen Han Wei (陈 汉玮)

3.  Dai Yang Tian (戴阳天) – 1st win

4. Dennis Chew (周崇庆) – 1st win

5.  Elvin Ng (黄俊 雄)

6.  Guo Liang (郭亮) – when was the last time he made it to the top 10?

7.  Qi Yuwu (戚玉武)

8. Tay Ping Hui (郑斌辉) – 9th win

9.  Zhang Yao Dong (张耀栋)

10. Zheng Ge Ping (郑各评)

With both Christopher Lee and Mark Lee ascend to the elite pedestal, 2 spots open up for grab. Again, like all previous years, this is one catagory that you really can’t predict. All 20 actors had equal chance until the very last minute. This year mark the 1st nomination and 1st win for newcomer Dai Yangtian. With smooth sailing, Tay Ping Hui will join the elite rank in 2012. Trailing close behind him is Chen Hanwei with 7th win this year.

* 2009 Top 10 Most Popular Actresses (again, alphabetically)

1.  Felicia Chin (陈靓瑄)

2.  Jeanette Aw (欧萱)

3.  Jessica Liu (刘芷绚)

4.  Joanne Peh (白薇秀)

5. Michelle Chia (谢韵仪)

6.  Quan Yi Fong (权怡凤)

7.  Rui En (瑞恩)

8.  Vivian Lai (赖怡 伶)

9.  Xiang Yun (向 云) – 10th win

10. Yvonne Lim (林湘萍)

The ladies list is the same as last year, except for Ivy Lee. She is replaced by Michelle Chia this year. Xiang Yun scored her 10th! Next year, she will be up at the pedestal for “All Time Favorites”

Interesting fact: it seems the ladies and the men are alternating the spotlight for “All Time Favorites”. ’09 was Huang Biren (& no male), ’10 is Mark and Christopher Lee (& no female), ’11 will be Xiang Yun (& none of the male will qualify), and if everything goes well, 2012 will be Tay Pinghui’s turn (& none of the female will qualify).

So, that will be all my comments. Again,  I am not too into other categories as some of them I am not even familiar with. I am not to go open that can of worm just yet…: D

For Best Theme Song (Drama) is Together《当我们同在一起》 – 《我们》 by  Kelvin Tan Wei Lian 陈伟联. It is my favorite so I am happy! 🙂

Life can be very stressful

Don’t even know where to start! You know, sometimes you plan one thing, you get something else. When you don’t plan, there it is in front of your door.

As a student, you worried if you can get good grade. After graduating, you scream “YAY!” and you rack your brain to find a job. Seriously don’t want anyone give you that you-are-graduated-but-not-working looks. Very stressful! Trust me on that! On the economy these days, don’t care if you actually hated the job, you are seriously lucky if you have a job now.

2009 doesn’t started very well for me. I got into accident first Monday of the year. That’s one way to start new year! All the stressful of dealing with repairs and insurances really get to me these past few days. Add to that a little bit of guilt I suppose. While I am not at fault in the accident, the car did need repair because of me and the car is not even mine. Add all that up then you will come up with a very stressful me.I want to vent but to whom, I want to scream out loud but at where…. My shoulder is suddenly feel so heavy. How I wish I was on different route that Monday morning. How I wish I followed my initial plan to leave house earlier. How I wish…… So many wishes….. but what had already happened can not be change……………..

A Birthday and Disneyland visit

Spent a wonderful birthday with friends this week. Gals, thanks for all the goodies and treats. Still have my ice-cream cake in the fridge :p

A side note: I finally met my high school friend, 2 weeks ago. Take it as early birthday gift. My friend and I  haven’t met each other since high school graduation about 8 years ago! I was excited! Spent a day in Disneyland down at Anaheim. We were having a blast! It was like we are back in carefree high school days. One thing that spoiled the mood is the fact that it is so hard to find individual “Donald Duck” items in the entire park! “Donald Duck” has been our favorite Disney character back in high school. 8 years past and we are still fighting over who has more Donald Duck in our house. Talk about childish! ^-^  😀

Whee… 1,000 Hits and HAPPY HALLOWEN!

Wow! I didn’t even realize it, but this blog has 1,000 hits today… Didn’t know that a lot of  people “stop” by my house 😛 Very Happy indeed.. Got to thanks all the visitors and of course, my bunch of friends who had help me to start up this blog.

Have a safe and happy Hallowen, everyone! 😀


Bats or Ghosts? 😛

Reviews…reviews…and more reviews…

Hmm…Finally find time to start on my drama reviews. The fact that my friends will definitely be cheering on. LOL

So, here is the first page, and it happen to be one of TVB classic “Detective Investigation Files” that I recently re-watch.

Just a word of caution: ALL the reviews that I write or will write will most probably contain spoilers. I know some of them are old serials, but not all of you watched what I already watched – I know some of my friend haven’t. Another thing is I write the review because of my particular interests in drama, especially Mediacorp (Singapore) and TVB (HK). Most of them are the series that I recently watch and some of them are based on my memories. Basic line: it is not perfect.

Obviously, I can’t tell readers what drama to like and not to like (or even hate), so whatever I put in my reviews is purely my opinion. So, I certainly welcome any suggestions, info, or even opinions on any particular series. Just don’t throw me hate mails…:D

Another day….

Have ever wonder about “what if”? I think lately I keep wondering about that. Sometimes I wonder if I am not here today, will I be happier? Sometimes I don’t even know why the heck I am. It is because life, it is because a sense of belonging or it is plain “just because”. I never really dream to be here but alas I am here.  I always wanted to be there but someone high up play a cruel joke with me.

I can’t really talk to someone about it. Sometimes, I wary about the comments that I will receive. Is thing going to change soon? What will it mean to my life? Will it be a better thing or worst? So many questions with no answers….
