Weibo Misses You, Shu Qi

September 15, 2012 — Leave a comment

Netizens, you are ruining my fun way too often for my liking. It’s not enough that you’re bullying Tony Leung out of a possible dream project with Kiyoshi Kurosawa~ I’m still super sour that you bullied away Shu Qi from her usual activities on Weibo.

You know, I used to didn’t like Shu Qi. I actually tried using a nice photoshoot photo of her, but I couldn’t pick one that I liked enough. It turns out, though, that I love Shu Qi when she’s acting- like, I can’t get enough of her. I think what made me turn around and start liking her was following her on Weibo, when she used to post things like this.

Now she doesn’t post anything this fun and personal. Her posts are limited (since she’s been back after her Weibo pull out) to Buddha related posts. And she’s no longer receiving comments, except from people she follows.

Okay, fine. I miss you on Weibo, Shu Qi. xD

Soooooo, story of my life. The Shunji Iwai Vampire interview was supposed to begin at 9pm, which means I decided to stay up all the way into 7am my timezone to catch the interview… the problem was I fell asleep well into the 30min. mark with Iwai-san arriving  just a few minutes later.

So I missed the whole thing. LOL

Of course, it’s Yu’s birthday, (She is 27 now!!!) and my Weibo timeline was flooded with Yu-chan photos all this time wishing her a happy birthday. xD

Anyway, one of the pics was this one of Yu with her Canon-sisters Yamada Yu and Kaho, birthday cake, candles, and all.

Isn’t Weibo the BEST?

お誕生日おめでとう、蒼井優!

It’s all about money, of course. The International Olympic Committee wants to retain all the control of its brand — who can blame them? — and to retain its control online, it took the social media control from the London Olympic committee, unlike what happened back at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

To Olympics lovers’ surprise, the Vancouver Olympic Committee was allowed free social media range, which they put to good use with online apps, tweeting athletes interacting with fans, the whole shebang [1]. I don’t actually care about online apps (nor Vancouver’s nor London’s), and I don’t care if athletes tweet. My only interest in the Olympics is watching the games and finding photographs xD

Cool photo, huh?

Jewels from Weibo. xD

I have no idea where people find these things…

I feel a little like invading her privacy… maybe I shouldn’t post these, huh? What do you think?
