新加坡1月19日上演 <艺妓回忆录>. 从来没见过电影院里坐的这么满.

电影本身故事平淡无味, 毫无悬念. 象很多回忆录一样, 试图从一个人的视野去展现所处的时代的变迁, 这一点<艺妓回忆录>没有做到. 艺妓的真实生活是什么样的, <艺妓回忆录>也没有做到. 故事是白人眼中的东方故事. 这大概也是日本人不满的原因把.

在白人的眼里, 亚洲人长的似乎都一样. 杨紫琼, 巩俐不知道哪里象日本人, 更不要说神秘的日本艺妓了. 大概演蒙古的公主比较合适. 巩俐就更是表演夸张得象个十足的怨妇娼妓. 让人难以置信她演的是一个当时有名的艺妓. 不过作为一个过气的, 以演绎旧中国村妇闻名世界的演员, 来演艺妓实在是有点难为她. 我想她也尽其所能了.

女主角章子仪和少年时代的Suzuka Ohgo是让<艺妓回忆录>活起来的亮点, 特别是少年时代的Suzuka Ohgo, 让人信服的感受到一个无所依靠, 渴望关心和幸福的纯真善良的少女. 章子仪的演绎也不愧获得金球奖的最佳女主角提名. 让人感受到了东方人含蓄绵长的情感世界. 电影里有个镜头, 就是艺妓可以只用一个眼神, 就让路上的陌生男人心仪. 小百合做到了, 章子仪也做到了.

电影本身没有什么好看的. 但是一部日本艺妓的电影, 竟然里头的三个艺妓都是华人出演, 就这一点就够奇的. 特别是章子仪, 因为这个电影被国内骂的狗血喷头. 看了片子, 觉得她有些冤枉. 里头那个艺妓出卖初夜权的情节(mizuage), 历史上还真有这么个仪式,不过电影里也强调的过分了.

祝愿章子仪能获得Oscar最佳女主角. 希望Suzuka Ohgo能获得Oscar最佳女配角提名.

Crocs sandals

Suddenly one special looking sandals get popular. The brand is Crocs. It even opens a brand store at Marina Square. The design idea is from Dutch wooden shoes, I guess. A pair of Crocs sandals is sold at around SGD 50. The price is justified for what it is made of - Croslite. Based on Crocs website, "Croslite™, a proprietary Closed Cell Resin (PCCR) which is NOT plastic NOR rubber. Croslite™ is closed-cell in nature and anti-microbial, which virtually eliminates odor. it is an extraordinary impact absorbing resin material developed for maximum cushioning. its closed cell properties resist odor, inhibits bacterial and fungal growth and are non toxic. this versatile material can be worn next to skin and be cleaned with just soap and water." However, it really looks like made of plastic or rubber, and the design is unique. Replica comes. they are sold at SGD 20, SGD 10, SGD 5 depending on quality.

Singapore Girl Sex Clip Posted Online

A couple days ago, a sex video clip about a female Chinese graduate student Wang Ting Ting (王婷婷) was posted on the internet. Just as it is about to cool down, another sex video clip pops. It is a sex clip of a Singapore Nanyang Polytechnic student . The video clip was stored on her cell phone. Someone stole it and posted the video clip on the Internet. This is a breaking news. It is even reported on major Singapore and Malaysia newspapers. Now we have so many cool gadgets. It is a breeze to shoot photos/videos, and share them on the internet. Everyone, even dog, is on the internet waiting for breaking news. Be careful when you do something secret or stupid. It may appear all over the world, live!

No smoking sign

Watch out this sign before you light the cigarette up. SGD 1000 fine! However, I wonder if someone had really paid so much for violation.

Prostitutes in Singapore

Singapore is very realistic about this issue. Prostitution is legal. The famous red light zone is Geylang area. I heard Hong Kong officials are considering to legalize this business in HK also. Singaporeans are not allow to work as prostitute. Maybe also SPR. The prostitutes are mainly foreign workers from poor countries in SEA area, such as Indonesia, Thailand, India, Malaysia, not from China. They come under special 2-year working pass, and must pass the health exam, yes, to prevent STD such as HIV, AIDS and so on. The brothels are mixed with normal resident houses. The brothel's house number is red lighted. The price is ranged from SGD 50 to SGD 200. Illegal sex workers are also around, and in some massage clinics. A very recent fatal case and newly effective government policy make a special social group - Chinese accompanying mom for studying kids a hot media buzz again.
