Happy Chinese New Year! 祝大家新春大吉，加送桃花運！:)
I just watched a nice video showing me how to make the above cool looking Tequila Sunrise! The video by Andy is in Cantonese and comes with clear English subtitles. You should be able understand everything and make the drink yourself. Have a watch of A Classy Man’s Tequila Sunrise (龍舌蘭日出) video! Thanks Andy for making the great video. (note: The instructional part starts at time code ~3:16 if you want to start learning how make it right away! :)
Subscribe to Andy’s A Classy Man’s YouTube channel for more videos. Like his Facebook and follow his Instagram. Fans of the first video have already asked Andy to make a dessert video! Finally, if you have made your own Tequila Sunrise (龍舌蘭日出), please post a picture to let us share your fun!
I am glad the newspaper column “Central, Hong Kong Pretty Girls” (“中環我至靚”報紙專欄) is finally “dead” (last column 2012年01月27日) after my previous article “中環我至靚 – 蘋果日報 與 新聞自由” urging (although I am sure they didn’t cancel the column because of my complains),
“I am a keen observer of pretty girls in HK and around the world. Unfortunately today, against my better judgement, I will argue the Hong Kong newspaper Apple B.B. Daily should voluntarily stop taking photos of some of these pretty girls (中環我至靚) in Central, Hong Kong. Yes, some of these photos taking and publishing has to be stopped! Especially many of the photos that I love the most. Isn’t this paradoxical?“
First of all, I LOVE pretty girls which is why I HATE the way Apple B.B. Daily has objectified them. To me, pretty girls on the street are transitory pleasure that are meant to be noticed and paid attention to for a few seconds and then left alone. We, the readers, were implicitly invited to judge (agree or disagree) the “beauty” of the girls in the photo. WTF did these girls do to deserve Apple B.B. Daily singling them out for judgement including personal ridicule?
Have a watch of the following documentary about Bill. You will see that Bill‘s “On the Street” column featured the dresses, colours, shoes, etc etc. But never the judgement of the “beauty” of the ladies/gents in his photos. In fact, Bill resigned from “from Women’s Wear Daily after his illustrated celebration of fashion across class lines was rewritten as a snobby put-down.” Reporters and editors of Apple B.B. Daily, learn some journalist integrity from Bill!
Well, let me challenge Apple B.B. Daily in creating a brand new Sunday column as fun as and as insightful as Bill Cunningham’s New York Times “On The Street”. And please cut the crab in the phoney voice over and be fair and level minded for a change. I am no expert but you know who you can learn from right?
For the record.
Confident rookie MP one of a new breed of Tory women
From Saturday’s Globe and Mail

Such a contrast this week in the House of Commons. With Peter Kent, the Environment Minister, away at the UN climate conference in South Africa, it was up to Michelle Rempel, his parliamentary secretary, to defend the government’s sometimes questionable environmental record.
And Mr. Kent, a former anchorman and journalist, could take a few lessons in communications from her.
In a Commons full of ministers robotically reading answers from their iPads because they’re afraid to go off script – that includes Mr. Kent – Ms. Rempel simply tossed away her talking points and confidently took on her opposition opponents.
She is among a new breed of Tory women. Like Lisa Raitt, the uber-confident Labour Minister, with whom she pals around, and Candice Hoeppner, the Manitoba Tory MP who killed the long-gun registry, Ms. Rempel stands out.
Only 31 years old, the blonde and petite rookie Calgary Centre-North MP, doesn’t hide behind anything – not even behind those prominent dimples of hers.
Throughout her political career, a pattern has emerged: Other women have pushed her to be better and more involved.
This week in Question Period, Megan Leslie, the NDP’s environment critic, attacked Mr. Kent for lecturing countries in Durban, “saying that they have to join a binding climate deal for 2015.”
Ms. Rempel shot back, reminding Ms. Leslie that on her recent trip to Washington to talk about the Keystone pipeline project, the New Democrat MP “lectured the United States … lobbying against our jobs here in Canada.”
Even then – and despite the war of words and accusations – Ms. Leslie respects Ms. Rempel. In fact, they go for drinks together “to decompress.”
“It’s nice to have a strong adversary on the file,” the NDP MP says. “She’s smart as a whip.”
Ms. Rempel didn’t grow up dreaming about being an MP. Read the rest of this entry »
