Beauty and silliness

3 May

First Lady Peng Liyuan has given a big boost to local Chinese luxury brandsthrough her elegant wardrobe choices for public appearances,and by presenting Chinese-made beauty products as gifts to the wives of other national leaders. This is definitely good for these brands who are mostly unknown outside of China and also lag Western brands in terms of prestige.

In a deliberate attempt to pander to Chinese audiences, Iron Man 3 was shown in China with several minutes of extra footage that included Chinese actors such as Fang Bingbing. These scenes weren’t shown anywhere else. Not surprisingly, these scenes were a massive disappointment, being trivial and adding nothing to the film plot. With such blatant and useless moves, Hollywood studios need to work harder to try and attract Chinese viewers.

Here’s something silly in Hong Kong- a massive yellow rubber ducky has arrived in Victoria Harbor. I admit it looks interesting, but it’s not something I find too great.
