Movie Review: Red Cliff

A movie that I waited so long, starring by Tony Leung, Takeshi Kaneshiro & Lin Chi-ling whereby story started In 208 A.D., in the final days of the Han Dynasty, Prime Minster Cao Cao convinced the fickle Emperor Han the only way to unite all of China was to declare war on the kingdoms of Xu in the west and East Wu in the south. With this campaign, Xu & Wu are formed into alliance against eight hundreds thousands of Cao Cao’s military.

This part of the story is one of the best part in The Romance of Three Kingdoms, also known as The battle of Chibi 赤壁之戰 . The allied victory at Red Cliffs ensured the survival of Liu Bei and Sun Quan, gave them control of the Yangtze. In this movie, it only mention the pre-war part of the battle of Chibi, including how this battle started and how Zhuge Liang & Zhou Yu came to know each others.

I remember during school time, beside The Journey to the West, this is the other main novel that I repeated at least 3 times. I love zhuge Liang, CaoCao, Lui Bei, Zhang Fei and of course the unbeatable General Guan Yu & Zhao Ji Long

This movie is definitely better than the earlier movie I watch, The Mummy and I cant wait for the 2nd part of the movie to be release.

    Yes, this is a dream to me, I daydream a lot and let me share with you a few of my dreams here. I always dream of creating a website to record every moments of my life and share with my kiddo when their grow up one day and also dream about carrying my cameras and travel around the world, see the world thru my eye,yes, I love travel, it is my ultimate dream to travel around the world, learning thru travel is the best dream I ever have.

Like most of the beginners, I was purely having fun with my DSLR capturing my family members portraits and events. After attend the talk by one of the master wedding photographer, it change my whole world. I was so touched by the slideshow shown on the projector for the showcase of prewedding and church wedding, the touching moments, the dramatic angles, all these impact was so strong that it hit direct into my heart and awake my passion towards wedding photography. From there onwards, I have focus all my passion on wedding photography and never feel more satisfied when I capture the moments for couple which last for a life time. Whenever I imagine the couple looking back those photos captured by me in ten, fifteen years from now and think, "yeah, that was the moments" "look, how silly you was!" "oh, I cried when I first saw you walks down the aisle i", "yes, I remember what your dad told me that day when he placed your hand in my right hand from his arm after walks down the aisle".. all these keep my heart warm and keep me going on & on for this long path without a single regret or tiredness ...
