Tiny Times book vs. movie

Even though Guo JingMing himself hand-picked out these actors and actresses base on his (no doubt the best visual) of the characters in the book.

1. Lin Xiao
Honestly, I started to read this book only because Yang Mi herself admitted that this helped take her through college and she was very excited to take part in the movie. So in consequence, Yang Mi is how I would imagine Lin Xiao when I read the book, so I have no argument here. I think that she has that cute, innocent, childish look which are terms I would use to describe Lin Xiao.

2. Gu Li
The Gu Li I see in my head base on what I read is a little bit more cold and fierce than Amber Kuo portraited. Except for her short height (honest opinion, no hatred intended), everything else on her outer look is a match to the book’s description. Skinny, short hair, like to wear. But I think Amber Kuo’s face is a little baby-ish that jeopardize the mature feel that Gu Li should have.

3. Nan Xiang

There’s no doubt that the director would take out Nan Xiang’s best and most beautiful feature; her hair. I’m amaze that Guo JingMing could find someone like Guo Bi Ting with such long, silky, smooth, shiny hair in the sea of people. Although I wouldn’t say that her face is like a beauty goddess, but then again Nan Xiang has a dark and evil side to her so it kind of have to take away the ideal angelic face.

4. Tang Wan Ru

I admit that this the character I care least about. Since I saw the four main leads’ costume photo before reading the book, Xie Yi Lin’s portrait of Tang Wan Ru is the picture in my mind. A goofy looking with a bigger body image girl. But she could use a little more muscle other than just flabby meat.

. . .

I don’t know. A lot of things has happened lately….. but I don’t know what to write anymore. Problems overwhelmed my life.

My strength?

I can tell you a million flaws of mine, but I can’t tell you even one strength I have. The problem isn’t you, it’s me. I can’t find any strength that I have. My mom is right, I’m the bottom chain of the food chain. So easy to manipulate and nothing good ever come out of me.
Suddenly feel so depressed and useless =((

Lover Match

Lovwe

I seriously cannot stand how perfect these two look together anymore >.< ……… fan-girling/shiping moment!!!!! GeMi ❤ GeMi

Comfort Zone

As a philosophy once said, try to do something out of your comfort zone each day….. and so I did.

First time going to an Amway meeting; learned a lot, thought a lot, but I am still caught up whether to make my move or back down. My parents don’t seem to like the idea, but I wanted to try something new and daring…. it’s a question of 200 dollars.

Misunderstood

What would you do when someone misunderstood you?

Do you stand up and try to reason? or do you feel like it’s useless to reason? too tired to reason? don’t want to reason?…. whatever it is, just do what make you feel like the right thing to do. Don’t think too much about it, don’t let it makes you feel repressed, uncomfortable; but at the same time, don’t make it become a bigger problem… it just not worth it.

 

Fear

Been reading a series of novels written by Guo JingMing called” Tiny Times”… I find myself relating to the main character LinXiao, but what i wanted is to be more like GuLi. I’m a scaredy-cat, too submissive, care too much about hurting other people’s feelings. Exactly like LinXiao.
GuLi, on the other hand is more cold-hearted, fearless, strong… but what can i do to be like her? I can’t just change in one night.

Judgement

No matter how much we like to deny it, it’s still in fact happening every moment that we see another human being. Judging a book by its cover. When walking down a street or sitting in a room, our mind won’t stop observing; and during that process, subconsciously, we are judging a person by their appearances, postures, gestures- – whether they are high class or low class, yuppies or hippes, fashionable or horribly dressed, snotty or arrogant, and among other things. Even though we have said and were told many many times to not judge someone, but all of that talks are just denials. We can’t control our sunconscious mind shooting these kind of thoughts into our conscience.

Boyfriend

Went to the mall shopping with my parents today… and out of nowhere I started to have wild imaginations. Pretending, dreaming of going to the mall with a “boyfriend”…. which I’ve never had one :l… in my wonderful, sweet, lovely dream, I have totally lost the interest in shopping to devote my full attention to daydreaming >_____<
If I have to guess, my best guess would be that I was possed by the book I'm reading recently. Tiny Times 1.0 by Guo JingMing. Imagining myself as the main character with her perfect moments with her boyfriend…. I think I seriously need to take a break from reading before I starts to go crazy >

Life lessons

It feels like I’ve learned a lot of life lessons lately…especially when I’m not in school. These came at random time, random people and had been going through my mind constantly. They are all sort of lessons such as:

– We can’t stop the fact that we’ll grow up someday and things will change no matter how hard we try to keep it the same
– We’ll forever become beware of the situation no matter how much we tell ourselves and others that we don’t believe in it… like the rumor of 2012
– Life is not just black and white, it’s a shade of grey so that sometime we have to lie to move forward. Don’t get too honest because people will look down on us. Tell them what they want to hear.
– You’ll always be able to think of million reasons to not do something, but it’s the one reason to do it overthrows them all. Instead of giving up when you hit a dead end, try to work around it.
– Don’t underestimate small things because you’ll never know how those small things can contribute to big things.
– Even though we are so serious and determine about something in our minds, we still find a hard time saying it out loud.
– Life is a script. We just follow it and can’t do anything to change it. This is called nature and culture.
– Everthing has its price. You must pay out certain things to exchange for certain things.

The most important one of them all: no matter how much of these quotes, sayings, and life lessons I realized, none of them take any effect on me (_ _!)…. I thibk the only way I’ll learn is the hard way: learn by doing 😐
