Have you ever heard of a fashion designer named Kyuan?

Yes. He is my friend.

I must always say that he is my friend, proudly. Haha… Anyway, he must be rolling his eyes if he reads this little promotion of him. Okay la.. He doesn’t need me at all.

But I have decided to upload some of his designs which made him the Best Evening Wear Designer Award winner of MIFA 2008 weeks ago.

Here we go..

Oh well… The three evening wear garments are absolutely stunning. I’m not forced to praise la.. I really mean it!! But I wanna make fun of comment on his designs. Perhaps, his fashion show.

The first evening wear design brings the oriental aroma. At least I feel this way. The model looks like a Chinese ghost imported from Beijing. I mean, she must have walked like a cat – that’s why she needs to do a cat walk. I missed the show. Okay, I didn’t attend the show. But if I were there sitting at the very last row, she definitely scares me out of my skin. She acts like a smiling angry ghost. The feeling is melancholy. Perfect. Okay, I’m confused. I’m not a pro.

If she is selling SEX, she does a very good job. I’m not sure whether she’s showing off her diamond wedding ring or pressing her left breast. Haha… Or singing Mariah Carey’s popular lines of “Touch my body… Touch my body…”. Because of the matter of sex… She is sexy. She wins my heart. To be frank, this is my favourite garment. She fully delivers the message to the audiences and is very confident. *claps*

Oh no.. What a face!! Okay, I need to calm down. For three minutes.

I was wrong.

She has to stand beside James Bond. Shoot me!! Yes, the feeling is right on the spot. She makes the ladies wanna wear what she’s wearing.

And here I present to you… Belinda Chee!!!!

But it surely would be better if the dress was tighter. This is Kyuan’s fault!

You don’t know who the hell Kyuan is??

DENG!! DENG!!

Happy Kyuan

Yong Kai Yuan!! Who said you could hold their hands? Grrr…. (And the Batman’s girlfriend is wearing Kyuan’s avant-garde design.)

Serious. From my point of view, the Chinese ghost, the sexy Mariah Carey, the James Bond girl and the Batman’s girlfriend are great. I’m sincere now. All of the Kyuan’s designs are above par.

I don’t remember the last time I wrote a letter. I mean, a traditional paper-and-pen letter but not an e-mail.

Cape No. 7

Cape No. 7

Cape No. 7 is a 2008 Taiwanese film written and directed by Taiwanese director Wei Te-Sheng. The film is mainly in Mandarin Chinese but it also contains significant lines in Taiwanese and Japanese. One important point is that this movie has attracted unexpected widespread popularity in Taiwan and has become the highest grossing film produced on the island.

Some spoilers.

In the 1940s when Taiwan was a Japanese colony, a Japanese teacher (Kousuke Atari) dispatched to the southernmost town of Hengchun and fell in LOVE with a local girl with the Japanese name Kojima Tomoko (Rachel Liang). Hmmm… Rachel is the first runner up of the Season 2 of Chao Ji Xing Guang Da Dao.

Back to the story. After the Surrender of Japan, the teacher was forced to return to his home country. On his trip home, he penned seven love letters to express his regret for leaving Kojima Tomoko, who originally planned to elope with him to Japan.

More than 60 years after the teacher left Kojima Tomoko, Aga (Van Fan) is introduced as a struggling young Hengchun-native rock band singer who could not find success in Taipei.

Gazing out...

After returning to his hometown, Aga’s step father (Ju-Lung Ma), the Town Council Representative, has arranged a position for him as a postman. Reluctantly, he has no choice and started his life as a poor postman until…

One day Aga comes across an undeliverable piece of mail: the daughter of the now deceased Japanese teacher has decided to mail the unsent love letters to Taiwan after discovering them. Aga unlawfully opens the package to discover its contents, but the old Japanese-style address Cape No. 7, Hengchun County, Takao Prefecture could no longer be found.

Meantime a local resort hotel inside Kenting National Park is organizing a beach concert featuring Japanese pop singer Kousuke Atari, but Aga’s step father makes use of his official position to insist that the opening band be composed of locals. Tomoko (Chie Tanaka), a Mandarin-speaking Japanese fashion model dispatched to Hengchun, is assigned the difficult task of managing this hastily assembled band, led by Aga.

After a frustrating trial period Aga and Tomoko unexpectedly begin a relationship in Aga’s room. Haha… I’m not sure how drunk they are.

ONLY SEX!

With some assistance from hotel maid Mingchu (Shino Lin), Tomoko helps Aga find Kojima Tomoko, the rightful recipient of the seven love letters.

Aga then returns to the beach resort and performs a highly successful concert with this local band and Kousuke Atari.

SO?? Here’s the trailer for more information.

DONT miss this one!

DON'T miss this one!

In conclusion, this is an improvement for Taiwanese production with a clear historical background. Undeniably, I watched it as I thought it was a musical production. As I know, Van is a great singer even though he is not as famous as Jay.

But then I’m kinda disappointed with the old folks appearing in the movie. I don’t hate it la!! But the old man who plays the Chinese traditional musical instrument is quite annoying. And too many Ah Bengs…

Oh well… My positive feedbacks include the songs are touching and the movie plot has good quality although Rachel appears almost at the ending part of the story.

Another interesting part of the movie is about the letters written by the Japanese teacher. The contents fully described the loneliness of a desperate man. I vividly remember… Je ne veux pas être seul.
