Sharing is Caring

I'm sure you've heard the old saying - Sharing is Caring.

Well, since I care about my readers, I've decided to share what I had for breakfast this morning with you.

It's a bagel sandwich which my wife made. It comes with fresh lettuce, ham & cream cheese.

Just look at the cream cheese. It's the same ones used to make good quality cheese cakes you know. Don't play play.

So far, I'm having a good day. I just got another cheque from Nuffnang in the mail.

Don't you just HATE me? (^_^)

How to Act in Hong Kong TVB Series

One of the reasons why I do not watch Hong Kong TVB series is because everything is pretty much formulaic - from the script right down to the dialogues, from the action sequences to the acting, they're all very predictable.

So if you have dreams of becoming a famous TVB actor, you should be able to pick up some acting tips from this post. Of course, if you're not so physically endowed to win one of those Miss Astro Chinese beauty contests, you might have to work your way up starting from the very bottom of the acting pile.

These actors at the very bottom of the pile are called extras, & they are the background actors in scenes. You know, the ones who walk by the camera in the background, the 50 enemy warriors who get their *sses kicked by the hero, the people running away from an out of control speeding car, & the crowd in a fire scene like this.

In Hong Kong, these extras are called Kay Lay Fay. I don't know what the literal meaning is, but it means the extras. In Hong Kong TVB series, to be a successful Kay Lay Fay, you must be able to point.

In this fire scene, the main character arrives in a taxi.

And when he gets out, the crowd is already pointing. This action is then followed by a very redundant dialogue - Thats a lot of smoke!

Then, as the hero asks the crowd whether they saw a lady & a boy in the building, they ignored him & continued pointing.

In the end, when the hero came out of the buiding after rescuing his own mother, somebody managed to point at him.

It was probably like, Sh*t! The scene is ending here. I'd better give it one last point. Maybe the director will notice my undiscovered talent & I shall rise to become the next superstar.

Got Milk?

I've always loved milk. I've been drinking milk for as long as I can remember. But then again, so did everybody right?

Ah Beng doing the Hustler spread.

Superman started drinking milk as soon as he arrived from Planet Krypton.

Bruce Wayne drank milk all the way to his inheritance of Wayne Enterprise.

So did Jessica Alba.

Oh, I almost forgot, so did her other 3 what's-their-name.

The Hulk definitely drank milk.

But I think his mom must have secretly mix-blended Jolly Green Giant peas into his milk.

I've always been told through the many television commercials that milk contains calcium to make our bones strong & healthy. I mean look at Michelle Yeoh drinking milk.

She drank her way to become the Anlene Milk Ambassador, & at her age, she's still kicking butts.

I didn't need to kick any butts but growing up as a skinny kid with skinny bones, I thought I really needed that boost. Otherwise, how to get a girl?

So I took a lot of milk. I took fresh milk for breakfast. And then fresh milk with afternoon tea. And then fresh milk for supper. I had fresh milk with cereal, fresh milk with banana & fresh milk with ice-cream. I had so much milk that the cows in New Zealand were sore & dried up.

But the recent Melamine scare sent everybody scattering off in all different directions. It will take a while for China to solve this problem & it will take a lot to regain world confidence in their products again. Maybe Wen Jia Bao needs to do more. Maybe he needs to do a Got Milk ad soon.

Oh, by the way, I don't know if this is true, but I'll pass it on to you anyway just in case it might be helpful.

With more and more milk products from China and Taiwan having problem. We really got to check where the things are produced. Here is a way to differentiate Taiwan made products and China made products : by looking at first three digits of its Bar Code.

If the 1st 3 digits are 690, 691 or 692 - China made
If the 1st 3 digits are 471 – Taiwan made

Ah Beng Draws Some More Cartoons: Pauline

Ok, I know I haven't been posting for quite some time now, & for that, I have been a very bad boy. Just to let you know that I'l be back with more consistent posts very the soon, at least I will try my very best. Hmm, maybe I shouldn't have said try. I remember the words of a very wise master, Do or do not, there is no try.

Bad*ss Master Yoda kickbutting.

Well, anyway, here's something for you to chew on while you wait for the real thing. This is the first ever cartoon that I submitted to Galaxie magazine (a STAR publication) way back in the 90s.
