#Grandmas’ Basketball Team# 【Grandmas Also Compete to Be “Rukawa Kaede”! Age Is Just a Number 】In Southern California, U.S., a group of grannies finally founded a basketball league of their own. They play half-court 3-on-3 basketball games. They are not afraid of breaking a sweat or a bone, because YOLO, what are you waiting for? Oh, right, not everyone can join this team. You have to be at least 80 years old~
Watch the video!
Grandpa passed away. His body was placed in a freezer. Many people came to mourn him. Before his dead body was moved to the coffin, the freezer was turned off and slowly brought to room temperature, so water drops appeared on grandpa’s face. The grandson saw that and asked his grandma: Why is Papa sweating? Grandma replied: Oh that’s fine. It’s the first time that Papa passed away. He is a little nervous.
【EPIC POST】They say everyone had such an awesome Geography teacher during their school days!
小仙女 [xiǎo xiān nǚ] n. Little+nymph. 小姐姐 [xiǎo jiě jiě] n. Little+older sister. Both Internet slang terms are used to address or describe girls and young women. These two newly-coined terms have probably rendered 美眉/MM [měi méi] “pretty girl” obsolete…
But personally I think “little nymph” is still a gendered term as by the Chinese people’s standards, nymphs are ageless and slender.
Louis Koo: At that time we were shooting [Cold Blood Warm Heart] day after day, night after night. How come your skin wouldn’t get lighter? I rarely wore makeup when I was filming. Why did I rarely wear makeup? Because I loathe putting on makeup! When you go home for a one- or two-hour break, what are you going to do, removing the makeup, taking a shower, or getting some sleep? Pick one. You were so worn out…why do you want to remove the makeup? Get some zzz’s! There is only one way to get away with wearing makeup—get tanned!
Alicia Keys quitted makeup in May last year, but under duress, most female artists still dare not go bare. I don’t really think wearing makeup is a way of showing respect. It is just a way of catering to the male-dominated aesthetic culture: Young, fair-skinned, ageless…The funny thing is that Wallace Chung is touted for his flawless skin partly because he lives many Chinese women’s dream. Do we fans sexually objectify Wallace as many men sexually objectify women? There seems to be a fine line between admiring beauty and obsessing over appearance…
The obsession over appearance has a huge impact on me. I too swoon over people who max out the cute-o-meter. Sometimes I caught myself rating people’s appearance in my mind… Hopefully one day I will be less scared of getting old or ugly and less judgmental of a plain Jane.
