    Ni Hao! It's been a while. I would like you teach you two sentences today! They are "long time no see" and "I miss you"! Here you go!! See you soon (paper grading and midterms can be a pain but it's that tie of the semester!) Zaijian

    I think I would have to go to NY to have a wide variety near me. I miss LA where there was more variety of all cuisines. I have recently been on an Indian kick. It has been really hard here where I am in NJ for find really great Chinese food. There is one restaurant and they actually have the best Peeking Duck I have had in a long time. You would like the place it is small but can get really crowded and it is mainly Chinese. The owner and her husband are Cantonese and the menu is really home style food like Congee.

    She is soo cute!! This sounds good. If it's Korean it should be spicy that's nice! There is a Korean restaurant near me I plan to try out. This helps to see dishes to know what they are before I go there. Thanks! I was looking at the recipe she did in your post and I saw this! This I have to try!!
  5. I have the Fire TV set up with Kodi and I just need to find safe sites to upload content. thanks for the link. I did like advised and I hooked the Fire TV up to Ethernet. (Having fun playing with the RasPi as I just got it up and running plating online here!! It's going to be fun, but I think your right there are a ton of projects it looks like I can use it for!) I have looked at some forums online and see that the buffering that keeps me from watching El Ray is from the Roku Stick. I have to see if this is still the only way I am able to get Sling TV as I really don't want to buy a Roku box. All this for one network that I like really isn't worth it.
  6. Nice links thanks for that! I figured there had to be something along this line asked before!! Don't know if I would have thought to put "crap" in as a search term!!!
  7. Do you buy VHS copies or do you just watch the ones you have?
  8. How fitting they are showing The Five Deadly Venoms on El Ray!!
  9. I had to start a thread for Chiang Sheng as he always has a special place in my heart because of how much of a fun actor he was with his fighting and acrobatic skilled , but also the tragic way his life ended. After his sting with Shaw Brother's he was low on work and ended up depressed and alone. He had turned to alcohol and ended up dying of a heart attack but wasn't found until three days later by Ricky Cheng Tien Chi who came to see him because he hadn't heard from him. (1) (2) He was only 40 years old. Here are some clips and links to info about him to start the discussion. What is your favorite film with him or favorite fight scene? Here are more links to info about him: http://www.hkcinemagic.com/en/people.asp?id=672 A fan page {some of the links on the site are broken} http://www.alliancemartialarts.com/ChiangSheng/ChiangSheng.html And Clips And does anyone know what movie this clip is from?
  10. lol!! Am I going to have to start a Wang Yue thread!! I think I will!! I'm sure that Lady will love that!! Did you like it? I can see Chiang Sheng playing the role also but I can not picture any of a romantic angle with him.

    There are lots of ways to make Asian style dishes very quickly. It can be called cheating, or having what you want quick and inexpensively! If you like Egg Drop Soup there is a very quick way to make it at home. The way I am going to describe it will make one serving. THis really only takes less than 15 minutes. ingredients: 1 egg tsp Cornstarch 1 can Chicken clear broth soup/Chicken stock, or chicken bullion cube dissolved to make the soup base. 1 green scallion (small one) or chive 1 mushroom (optional - you can use Shiitake, or any other type of mushroom you like). soy sauce oil (a small amount for cooking the mushroom if you use it. Just about a tablespoon). water Kitchen tools: a small bowl to add water to the cornstarch a whisk for the egg and to stir the soup. Small pot to cook the soup Prep: Beat the egg and set it aside (I do not like the yolk in my soup so I separate it and use only the white. If you do this you may want to use 2 eggs. (we have real eggs already out of the shell or whites of the egg sold in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. You can use that if you like.) Chop the scallion or chive very thinly Slice the mushroom very thin. (If you like the regular white mushrooms you can slice them very thinly and they will cook in the broth. they do not need to be precooked like a thicker mushroom. put the cornstarch in a small bowl and ad a little water to it just to make it the consistency of non-fat milk. (use cold water to mix the cornstarch or it will clump up. This is used to help thicken the soup to your liking) Cooking: If you use a shiitake mushroom or another more firm mushroom, heat the pot on medium heat and put a little oil in the pot. You just need enough to cook the mushroom until it is soft. now add the broth to the pot and heat it until it is boiling. When it is boiling you can slowly pour in the egg stirring it so that you make ribbons of egg not clumps. after you have the egg added, then slowly add a little of the cornstarch mixture. You only need less that a 1/2 teaspoon or so to thicken the soup a bit. The egg should be floating in the soup not falling to the bottom. The soup needs to come to a boil with the cornstarch in it to thicken. Once it is thick enough you can add the scallion. it will just need to cook a minute or two with the scallion. Taste the soup at this point to make sure it is seasoned well enough for you. (If you like your soup more chicken-y you can add some chicken bullion) You can then take the soup and pour it into your bowl and add soy sauce to taste. You can always play around with the recipe a bit to suit you. You may want to add some powdered ginger, powdered onion or garlic to tweak the taste. Have fun!! Wonton Soup Another easy quick soup you can also do is use the same soup as your base and buy some frozen wontons from your Chinese grocery (look for the ones which are used in soup. (I go by the picture on the bag!!) Bring the soup to a boil and add the frozen wontons. For a single serving you may use about 3-4 of the small wontons, or 2 of the large ones. When the wontons are done you can add the scallions at the last minute. You do not need the cornstarch for the wonton soup. Add soy sauce to taste. If you aren't a meat eater you can make the soup with firm tofu chopped into small squares. With either version of the soup you can feel free to add other ingredients as you like. The "house Special" wonton soups have everything from small shrimp, mushrooms, baby corn, carrots, and broccoli. For ease of cooking any of these ingredients can be used fresh or frozen! enjoy
  12. I would have to say in my short time getting to know the Shaw films, Buddhas Palm, and Holy Flame of the Martial World are by far the worst. I couldn't even get through them even though I bought them knowing they were bad!!
  13. I was really shocked I would like him carrying this whole movie. I loved him in Dirty Ho but that was a supporting role. I never thought I would think he would do well carrying the whole film. I can see what you meant about the intro and how it sets up the true spiritual boxers, but I think i was confused because in the intro they didn't turn into anything, they just had a spiritual superpower/invincibility to them. I think it would have been better if His master had then been one of the "real" ones who had just fallen on hard times, or if there had been some real ones trying also to ferret out the fakes. I am not a fan of the actors who are just plain silly comedic, I like to see a range of acting from them. I think it is a very interesting choice for Lar Kar Leung to pick him as the lead and not someone else, but I'm not sure what actor I would substitute in that role. I think I really liked it as a comedic movie that wasn't all slapstick! It still kills me how they never know that the girl is the girl!!!
  14. We have talked about the most disturbing movies, and movies that shaped our childhood, but what I am specifically asking for in this thread is which is the worst Shaw Brother's movie you have ever seen - and why? I'm going to have to think of mine.
  15. We have talked about which ones we want to see and which ones we want to own, but what was the most recent Shaw Brother's film you have seen and how was it? Last night I saw Spiritual Boxer (1975) Starring Wang Yue (not Jimmy Wang Yu). This was directed by Lau Kar Leung so you know that the action was on point! He even had a cameo as one of the towns people in the movie having a fighting scene. This was his directorial debut and he also was the action director. Wang Yue did a great job leading the movie and it was a great mix of fighting humor and fun. There were brief cameo's by Ti Lung, Chen Kuan-Tai, and Wilson Tong Wai-Shing that really didn't make much sense as they were in the intro only and not in the rest of the film. I guess the intro was to set the stage for the concept of Spiritual Boxing It was basically a "training" scene. It may have also been that since this was one of Wang Yue's first leading roles, their names may have been a draw to movie goers. This movie employs the troupe of including a female who is initially mistaken for a male. It was actress Lin Chen Chi, but I have not seen that played out in this type of modern setting. (It wasn't current day, but it was not a period piece). Wang Yue's character is a scam artist who after his Master is arrested, get's into a series of situation that take him from con artist, to revered savior and master of a small town bullied by a gang leader played by Shut Chung Tin. Yue's character is able to become possessed by the spirits of fighting deities and have their power when in that altered state. His fighting in this movie is very good. His monkey King is priceless! The movie has comedy (but not overly silly) drama, fights, heroism, a very engaging plot line, and a bit of romance! I would highly recommend this movie as I did not know what to expect having not read any reviews but thoroughly enjoyed it. This is one I would actually watch again soon! As this seems to have turned into a review I would actually give it a 5/5. Here is the listing for it http://www.hkcinemagic.com/en/movie.asp?id=1177 and here is the official trailer. I bought the movie on iTunes
