Li Bing Bing’s Secrets to Youthful Face At 40: Face Masks, Ice Water, and Yoga


Born in 1973, Li Bing Bing, one of China’s most successful A-list actresses has turned 40 this Feburary. This is the age where women are freaking out about their skin and getting wrinkles. Despite the age, Bing Bing appears to defy the laws of nature by showcasing her gorgeous face with no signs aging at promotional and fashion events.

In a scene of American film “Snowflower and the Secret Fan”, actress Li Bing Bing had to become a highschool student along with 1981-born korean costar Jeon Ji Hyun. It is difficult to tell Li’s true age with her radiant, youthful face and beautiful smile that is comparable to Jeon.

If Americans can all agree on one thing, it’s that Mcdonalds is the number one popular fast food joint in our country. It’s like our go-to because it is literally everywhere. What is there not to love? The food is dirt cheap, and you can grab it whenever you need it. The best part Read More…

She’s the Man | In Three Sentences

You want your socks in your mouth through the duration of this American comedy, just so you don’t die from random bursts of insane laughter. The chemistry of Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum is explosive, along with very funny side characters and good pacing to boot. She’s the Man never piles on the cheese (though they talk about it: “Um so do you like cheese? “Why yes I do! My favorite is Gouda.”) so those of you who aren’t into the romantic-comedy genre, this is probably one you should not miss out.

She’s the Man is a 2006 American romantic-comedy film starring Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum, about a girl who pretends to be her twin brother and gets into an prep school to pursue her dream of playing soccer.

Food Travel Story: Roadtrip to Yellowstone

In the week of July 4th (in case you aren’t familiar with, this is US independence day), I went on a roadtrip with the family. Our destination was the famed Yellowstone National park. Personally, Yellowstone didn’t impress me much since it was quite similar to the scenery we passed by during the roadtrip (except with a more guarded feel with its road signs that warn about deer crossing). But the FOOD was another story my friends. Here’s a peek at some of the delicious food I had while I was there.

60 Days of Juicing Diet Challenge (Documentary)

An overweight Australian man who tackles his weight and diseases in a 60 day diet of homemade juice (Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead). Could just two months of drinking nothing but juice actually help the body cure itself from disease and get healthier? Before this, I had seen a video of JennaMarbles (funny Youtube personality) describe her daily meal and thought it was insane she could live on nuts, fruit, and salads… But after hearing that she actually felt more alert and mind clearer, I wanted to see this movie to see if this will be true for this guy as well.

Caution: I definitely feel like this kind of diet should apply to adults, not kids who are still growing because a fasting on fruits and vegetables could be detrimental to the child’s height and overall health. So kids, don’t do this just yet. Read More…

Tree Houses and Secret Codes

Tree houses were all the range in the 90’s, or at least in my mind. When I was in about 3rd or 4th grade, I went around asking all my friends if they wanted to join my tree house club. I didn’t even know what we would do or anything. I think it might have been one 80s or 90s American movie about recreational tree houses that triggered my obsession with them. It might have been Tree House Hostage, but I can’t be sure. Another inspiration was that ubiquious pbs series called Arthur. Remember the gang gathering in their self-made tree house – Brian, Arthur, DW, and Buster? It brings back the good memories of childhood. Oh, and of course, I read all the Magic School House books, so that was another contributing factor.

There’s just something magical about gathering in a secret tree house, with codes and everything.
