I just watched the stunning Zhang Yimou film “The Flowers of War”- the 1930’s were a fascinating time for fashion in cosmopolitan China as the presence of foreigners influenced hair, makeup, and clothing styles. Here the actress Ni Ni portrays a prostitute from Nanjing, with high arched penciled-in brows and a classic red lip
Need to watch this movie…

One of these days I’m going to dedicate a full week to just watching through all the RK episodes and OVAs…
I want a tattoo of a woman and I’ve always leaned towards getting something Japanese style but… this… I ran into this lovely image on my desktop and I think if I did I’m going to opt for tatting a Filipina woman in national costume instead.
Hong Kong flight attendants take Wing Chun classes in order to protect themselves in the close confinement of an airplane.
While I’ve watched Wing Chun employed in street fights and fail, it seems like the perfect martial art to learn when needing to quickly diffuse a physical confrontation.
The speed, up close combat and quick neutralization of Wing Chun is ideal in this particular reason.
Also, when flying from Hong Kong, never complain about not getting ice in your drink of you’ll find yourself on the floor, pissing blood.
Agreed. While Wing Chun in of itself as a fighting technique is flawed, it works well in close contact situations… like say, when some drunken creepo @ a club tries to grab you… >.> ;;; ~ *deflects hand*
