  1. Seeing those Cherie pics (and the news about Shek Kin) is making me depressed.

    She looks so average and “forlorn” as you said.

    Where’s the radiance? The glamour?

  2. Sek Kin led a great life. I’m so glad that I got to know more of his career through the countless Connie Chan films I’ve watched. He was definitely one of the pillars of HK cinema.

  3. Thanks for the Tiananmen Square footage–I also posted a link to the Tank Man video on my blog & couldn’t really think of anything to add to it. It really speaks for itself in so many ways. Maybe in a few days I’ll have something to say but for now I’m feeling a bit forlorn about it myself!
