Currently Watching 'The Gem of Life'

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

I crashed into bed at 10pm last night and had my 9 hours of beauty sleep. Phew! It feels so good and refreshing when I woke up this morning. I was so exhausted yesterday due to the lack of sleep for the past few nights. I’m on another drama marathon. My brain malfunctioned yesterday, and I realized that I should get my hands off those DVDs and get some sleep.

I’m currently watching The Gem of Life (珠光寶氣), a Hong Kong TVB mega drama with 82 episodes. The Gem of Life is said to be the most expensive TVB production to-date and it took one year to complete the filming. Be dazzled with the glamorous life styles of the rich and famous, elegant wardrobes, diamonds and expensive sets. Be exposed to the ugly sides of socialites. This drama has them all. Full of trills.

The drama revolves around three sisters played by Maggie Siu, Gigi Lai and Ada Choi. I’ve watched 8 episodes to-date. I would say that the first 8 episodes give a very good introduction to the many characters in the drama. The three sisters have their own marital problems that lead to their divorce at the beginning of the drama.

This drama has three celebrities that I adore – Gigi Lai, Moses Chan and Bowie Lam. They did an excellent job in the previous TVB hit War and Beauty. I’m a bit disappointed that Charmaine Sheh is not in this drama though. Another piece of sad news is that Gigi Lai is retiring from showbiz. This will be her last series, sobz…

I’ll be off for two weeks starting next Monday, so this drama really comes at the right time for me. Yippee!
