Zhao Wei for Harper’s Bazaar

I think everything about this shoot is stunning, etc etc etc, but I wish mags would stop with this geisha/spring blossoms/bird cage/Asian exotic thing.

Formspring.me #2, songs

Someone on formspring asked me:

what are a few of your most fav songs?

This list got a little longer than I thought it’d be…

Imogen Heap – Just for Now (acapella version)
I love this song so much that when I went to watch Imogen perform a couple of weeks ago, when she started singing this song, I teared. Oh, and, Imogen is AMAZING live.

The Postal Service – Such Great Heights

Kyuhyun – Smile

SHINee – 누난 너무 예뻐 (Replay)
Easily the best Kpop debut song ever. Don’t hate. I know all the lyrics to this one -_- No, but seriously, “Hug”? Terrible. “Twins”? Ear bleed. “Oh Yeah”? Oh no. I’ll be honest, I find SHINee still kind of lifeless and boring outside of performing, but you know what, they are easily the best group live out of all their peers and that’s what they debuted to do anyway.

Khalil Fong – Love Song

★ Cinderella’s Sister OST – Minor Waltz

Vivian Hsu + Daniel Wu for Harper’s Bazaar China

This is a stunning photoshoot, not in terms of photographic technique or fashion styling, but just the atmosphere. The two look like they have so much chemistry together! I don’t really like Daniel Wu, and I’ve avoided much of Vivian Hsu’s work for some reason, but the two are starring in an upcoming movie together, and my interest is piqued.

Zhou Xun @ Elle Style Awards in Shanghai

水调歌头

明月几时有,把酒问青天。
不知天上宫阙,今夕是何年?
我欲乘风归去,又恐琼楼玉宇,
高处不胜寒。
起舞弄清影,何似在人间!
转朱阁,低绮户,照无眠。
不应有恨,何事长向别时圆?
人有悲欢离合,月有阴晴圆缺,
此事古难全。
但愿人长久,千里共婵娟。
