Korean commercial and promotional images for cosmetics brand illi (by AmorePacific), featuring actress Jun Ji-hyun. The illi skin care products are based on oriental medicines; it’s a bit of a trend in Korea these days to integrate old wisdom (of traditional oriental medicines) in modern products.
A short, light-hearted movie by Malaysian oil and gas company PETRONAS, in celebration of Deepavali, the Hindu festival of lights in 2014. Happy Deepavali to my Hindus neighbours and devotees worldwide.
Thousands of demonstrators, many of them students, have occupied the streets in Hong Kong to protest Beijing’s decision to vet the candidates for the Chief Executive of Hong Kong election in 2017 (which technically means Hong Kong can only choose a pro-Beijing leader, kinda makes the election pointless.)
This is a video taken from a drone, originally by Nero Chan on Facebook, on September 29. The crowd has reportedly got even bigger in the past couple of days and will probably continue to grow during this holiday period, as China is celebrating its National Day on October 1.
Not sure how this is going to end. I don’t think Beijing is going to back down on this; they may resort to force if the demonstration continues, which is something I don’t want to see. For my friends in Hong Kong, stay strong, whether you are on the streets or against it. Peace.
