me too, me too.
though it’s always a love/hate relation with any city I stay in.

I’m headed to bed early tonight. “big” day… er… today.
let’s see how it goes~
in the meantime~~~

Here’s Carly Pope!

Carly Pope by Shea Pollard

What are your fondest memories growing up in the city?
My parents used to always take us down to Granville Island on the weekends.  Kids Only market was my hotspot, no doubt.  We’d also take drives along the Seawall, and I would be nothing short of fascinated with the Girl In a Wetsuit Sculpture sitting out in the sea.  I tried (every time) to convince everyone she was actually the Little Mermaid…my version, anyway.

I actually thought it was a mermaid too. LOL Granville Island pawns.

What’s the most awesome restaurant in Vancouver?
How do you choose?!  Vancouver’s seriously got the most awesome restos.  I’m practically a pundit for anything and everything Japanese. Hapa Izakaya, Kingyo, Miko, Bistro Sakana, Tojo’s (kind of preferred the days of old there though…something more unruffled about their former setup, but I get it), Shijo, Yuji’s, Yoshi’s, Daikichi (for takeout).  Asian fare, though, across the board, makes me a happy girl.

Bolding, mine. ZOMG~ She’s so awesome. xD
I’ve been to Hapa Izakaya once, it was pretty nice. Loads of people. Pretty nice food.
But double ZOMG! Daikichi!!!
I did most my Jap takeout from there since I lived right across the street. xD
I did hang out with the Asian crowd. We went out to eat almost every weekend…

Read the whole interview at Vancouver Is Awesome.

Woahhhh. She left my heart dokidoki~~~

It’s a very VERY old interview Cheung did for the New York Times while promoting Clean at the Toronto International Film Festival (for which she won Best actress at Cannes).

Maggie Cheung by Jean-Baptiste Mondino

In case the whole thing disappears, I’m gonna paste the whole thing here~~~
by the way, I do LURV the photo below the break, same photoshoot as the above…
want a bigger version of the one below!!!

Really, really do read this whole interview, even though it’s quite long. But it will make you adore Maggie Cheung~~~ it will make you love her, even though she doesn’t really want you to. LOL

More Yu

Yu Aoi - July09 More InterviewOver at the Yu Aoi LJ Comm, there are brand new scans with an interview title “All About Yu Aoi” [insert Lily Chou Chou reference in here]. Scans are okay-ish size for photos… but knida makes it difficult to read or “try to read” as I call it. Plus, they have watermarks that make it even more difficult for me to try to get kanji xD

Sucks to be me.

Anyway, I did manage to get some of the titles and sub headings to get myself an idea of what’s going on here.

It goes something like this…

Likes, dislikes and the Actual Me

All About Yu Aoi

It has to do something with her success as an actress, and… her happy face (???) but yet precocious nature? xD – What’s the deal?  “Now, we all know “All About Yu Aoi””

Pun intended. LOL

Then, I think… they talk a bit about her views on this beautiful world (?), how awesome it is to work with Kyoko Koizumi (referring to the Gakuya play), how awesome (or how it makes her happy?) to have Scone in the mornings. As well as… opinions on Love? (Koi, Ai… Suki and Aisuru) – Ecological issues? ~~~ ?

Something to do with movies and journies and searching? And wait, wait… funny part.

とにかく食べることが大好き (笑)。
Tonikaku taberu koto ga daisuki (wara?).
I generally love to eat (laughs).

LOL. I can get that.

ANYWAY. Any proper translation would be welcomed! ^^
