On this episode of Scandal, of course many gut-wrenching events took place! For instance we are reminded of Big Jerry (Fitz’s late hooker-loving daddy) “forcing” himself (euphemism for rape) onto Mellie 15 years ago and it traumatizing her so much so that it ruined her fresh marriage with Fitz. She attempts suicide and lieutenant governor, Andrew (I can’t recall his last name) saves her. I’ve always been Team Mellie because she is a fierce First Lady and I’m so happy she FINALLY got a little play, even with the portrait of Jackie Kennedy voyueristically hanging in the background. The only other time Mellie got any play was when a scotched up Fitz rejected her attempt at fellatio in the steamy shower last season.

Moreover, we have to the whole B613 clan in which Mr.Ballard seemed to be unpleasantly surprised to realize that in order to be Command, he’d actually have to work. And was I the only one to scream “oh, I heard that!” when he told Olivia that ain’t nobody got time to come home to popcorn and wine!?! Speaking of which, I’ve never noticed Olivia eat, even when she’s having Sunday dinner with Daddy aka Rowan aka Eli. And Huck, stop bringing Olivia coffee and get her some damn food! You know she’s in dire need of some sustenance!

Then we have Quinn Perkins, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, who is working day and night to improve that B613 résumé. It was weird that she was mostly affected by Huck licking her on the face. Did she forget that he duct tapped her up naked and yanked out her tooth? I have a cousin who just got her wisdom tooth pulled and said there aren’t enough drugs in the world to alleviate such pain. With that being said, who cares about a lick on the face??

Speaking of drugs, that whole Mellie suicide attempt thing, in true Scandal fashion, shows up in present day that there was once OxyContin in the governor’s mansion. In even truer Scandal fashion, someone was covering it up. And of course Olivia kills the story and in the most utterly true Scandal fashion, no one knows how nor cares how.

Meanwhile, James is still trying to expose his husband on the whole Daniel Douglas murder. And Sally is having hallucinations about that dreadful night the devil crept into her for turning her back on the unborn and stabbed her closeted kept husband with a letter opener. Every time the newly widowed Langston comes on screen I can’t help but to start singing that one number from Chicago, HE HAD IT COMING! Then walks in my favorite character, Hollace Doyle with his new found love for yoga and vegan food, and all his southern eloquence, ready to fund the Langston campaign just like he funded his daughter cutting off her own ear.

As for funding, we also have what’s her name, Assalamu Alaykum, who not only exposes a bit more of Harrison’s past (something about Clearwater), but also reintroduces us to Mama. We discover that the two of them are interested in funding the Grant campaign. Hmm, why I wonder? Does it have anything to do with daddy?

Another discovery is the secret service agent isn’t actually down with the Olitz cause like we may have thought, but instead is part of B613 as well. So he’s the whole reason daddy knows Olivia has been sinning with the president…

I took another extended hiatus, my apologies. I’ve been living in Nanjing since the summer and I recently took a short vacation to my beautiful hometown, San Francisco. It was refreshing to breathe the clear smog-less air and eat home-cooked meals. I return to Nanjing tomorrow and I’m happy to say that I’ve been completely rejuvenated and I’m ready to surface all my ideas to you guys!

Expect a post after I land!

Keijing Chinglish Episode One

Keijing Chinglish is where I teach you Mandarin Chinese.

Episode 1: Happy Valentine’s Day 情人节快乐

心 is the Chinese character for “heart”.. It and its two radical forms are used in over 10,000 Chinese words.

 

And now you can impress your Chinese friends with a couple of phrases! And you can even recognize and write a character. So if you see 心 around take a picture and send it to me… I’ll have a new video in days.

Genie Locs, Juicy Lips, and Buen Queso

These are my Spanish roommates Raquel and Edu, they are the loveliest couple and they’ve been a breath of fresh air after living one whole year with roommates from Hell! They’re both intellectuals who’ve studied law and economics and they’ve been in China since August. They teach me Spanish, I help them with English, and we study Chinese together. Raquel and I came up with a blended name for all these languages, Chinlatinglish.

We typically take turns cooking dinner and that night I made steak (fajita style), frijoles negros (black beans), grilled vegetables, and mexican rice. It was SCRUMPTIOUS!

Before, 之前,Antes

After, 之后, Despues

I thought I made enough food to last us until lunch the next day, but there wasn’t a single bite left.

And this is the box of Sutter Home wine that Raquel and me got ripped off for.

 

This is a correlation of different types of videos so you can get a good idea of what my youtube channel will consist of. So I hope you find it scintillating and uplifting!

Look into the Life of Keijing!

Hello, Everyone! Long time no update. Sorry, these past couple of months have flown by! Lately, I’ve been so busy with studying Chinese and taking multiple exams. I’m applying for a scholarship and to Fudan University in Shanghai as well. I’m finally twenty (my dad claims I was nineteen for five years), so I really want to start pursuing a degree by the end of the year. So if everything goes accordingly, I’ll be able to stay in China. I’ve yet to think of an alternative. But I’m practicing affirmations and visualizing myself receiving two acceptance letters!

I made a little vlog and I think I want to try to have a vlog series. So if you want to see more, just let me know!

Thanks for all of the support and Happy New Year!

From Keijing

Anna May Wong

Here’s my take on the icon…

Image

More people these days know of Marilyn Monroe than they do of Anna May Wong. But don’t fret, Posh Posh is here to put the spotlight back on the style goddess and cinematic superstar. During the Roaring 20s, Ms. Wong was the most sought after actress of Asian descent in American and European cinema. Wong acted in everything, from rousing melodramas to wild comedies, from silent film noirs to technicolor scripted classics. Though it took years for Ms.Wong to be offered a lead role, her spark, pizazz, and style ignited even in the background. She was a muse to many designers, artists, and directors and worked alongside Hollywood’s biggest names. To the western world she was their “China Doll” though sometimes depicted as a “Dragon Lady”. And though the Eastern world chastised her for her overt sexiness, the ethos of China was Anna May Wong’s greatest style inspiration.

At the beginning of her acting career her style was that of a typical 1920s flapper: Robe de Style chemise dresses, dark bobbed haircut accented with crystal and pearl headbands, 2 to 3 inched pumps, brightly rouged cheeks, and wine colored pouty lips. Wong wore the sartorially elegant designs of couturier, Jeanne Lanvin and Vogue costume designers. It wasn’t until she tapped into her Chinese roots and spent a year in Taishan that she started wearing traditional Chinese clothing.

In the 1937 film, Chinese Costume Party, Wong is introduced as, “China lady of fashion.” She wears a sapphire Mandarin gown and says, “I’ve just returned to Hollywood, after a most marvelous year in China. My first visit to the ancestral country. All the Chinese ladies looked so smart and vivid in their beautiful modern dresses of China. And being feminine, it made a deep impression on me. Not to mention my pocketbook. I could not resist to go completely Chinese in my wardrobe.” Thereafter, Wong paired silk qipao (chee-pow) dresses with fabulous furs and chic shawls and went everywhere with a calligraphed bamboo fan.

Anna May Wong’s style was so groundbreaking at the time that in 1934, the Mayfair Mannequin Society of New York voted her “world’s best dressed woman.” Her exotic fashion was  fêted by high society in London, Paris, New York, Hollywood, and all over the world. Her combination of traditional Chinese and western clothing was a style no one had ever seen before. Ana May Wong will go down in history for not only being the first superstar of asian heritage but also for integrating vintage attire and culture with modern fashion. With trends from the early 20th century coming back to fashion today, look nowhere else but at Ana May Wong for inspiration.
