Last Steep Ascent episode 14 recap

I’m enjoying both Last Steep Ascent and High and Low despite I’m busy with University work. It’s when I recap every episode, I get picky on dramas. I don’t really like Silver Spoons at the moment although many fans love it. We’ll see if I will recap more Silver Spoons.I’m behind on Last Steep since I’ve been busy watching High and Low but will catch up. 🙂



Moses wake up and look at his clean blue outfit and remember Maggie
took it and wash it for him. Edwin listens to Maggie telling Moses about he should take a day off. Sometimes I wonder while watching this series, does Edwin Siu has better things to do than bothering Maggie’s company? Edwin’s wife complained to Edwin that his dad always yell at everyone at home and is picky on every little thing. Edwin’s wife said his dad his maid poured tea for her and he got angry and broke the cup. Edwin’s wife complain that Edwin only cares for his dad and not her. Edwin tells his dad gently that he bought a new cane for her. His dad grumpily yelled at Edwin that he’s not free like him, he’s embarrassed to go out. Edwin’s dad yelled at him that he should have burned Maggie’s company. Edwin yelled at his dad to go to jail if he wants to do that. Edwin told his dad they can ruin Maggie’s company easily but Moses is in their way. Edwin told his dad he can tell that Moses and Maggie likes each other. Edwin’s dad told Edwin that Maggie is a widow and 40 years old, Moses wouldn’t fall for her. Edwin said everyone has different taste, and he is not Moses. Edwin told his dad to casually mention to the elders that Maggie washes Moses clothes. Edwin is cute and his acting as a villain is good but I don’t think this villain role is that strong to win best supporting actor. I like Edwin in Daddy Good Deeds though. Maggie made congee for Moses. Moses told Maggie that Edwin misinterpret something in his plan, that is Chuen is not a drinker but just drinks to ease his back pain. Moses said Edwin hired a northerner to do his work which is hard to trace him. Moses told Maggie that one of them has to be in the shop to make sure Edwin doesn’t destroy their company. Maggie told Moses he owes him no matter what. Maggie’s servant told Maggie and her mother in law that the kids will be happy to know that Moses is joining them for dinner. Haha what a warm family. Katy Kung and Matt Yeung argues with each other before dinner. Katy Kung told her mother in law that Matt broke his promise and wants to go back to his house. Matt told Katy’s mom he’s bored and have nothing to do. Katy’s mom wants to bring Matt’s family to stay with them. Haha I ejoy watching the scenes of Joel Chan and Samantha Ko. Joel discuss with a western man about the black hair cream secret ingredient which is flower root. Samantha is so cute when she talks to Joel. The western man said he needs 20,000 catties every six months and he wants to sign a contract for five years. Joel told him that five years is too long and what if somehting happens to the herb. Joel is a man who just wants faces but is kind on the inside. Wow the rumors of Maggie wash Moses clothes is so fast. Joel heard it. Joel heard the men in the restaurant blabbing about Moses moved to Maggie’s company because of her. Joel yelled at the men that they gossip like women. Joel yelled at the business man to focus on how to run his business better instead of complaining about it. Matt Yeung asked Moses how long will he be able to know the names of the herbs. Moses told Matt that it took him more than 20 years to learn. Moses told Matt that Chinese Herbs are not something to slack about. The kids asked Moses to play with him since they finished their homework. Maggie told the kids they can play with Moses after they finish eating dinner. Katy Kung told Moses he finally met him. Matt Yeung tries to memorize the herb during dinner. Maggie’s mom told Moses she should serve him tea to thank him. Moses gives a toast of wine to Maggie’s family. Maggie asked Moses about him acting weird after she gave him the letter. Maggie read the letter saying that Kenny and the neighbors are not doing well due to the drought. Kenny stayed to look after Aimee who is sick. Moses said no matter how smart he is, there is a natural disaster in Kenny’s village which he can’t do anything about it. Maggie told Moses to drink tea instead of wine before sleeping. Maggie told Moses to have faith on heaven.Maggie prayed for Moses to have a good sleep. Mr. Thomas discuss with Maggie about business. Edwin told Uncle Chan he will see how Maggie mess up. Matt told Maggie not to accept the deal since the business is risky. Maggie desperately asked Moses to come back. Moses accept the deal. Moses told Maggie that they will grow the fleece flower roots if they don’t have enough. Moses told Maggie they will grow 30,000 catties so they can make 10,000 profit. Maggie told Moses she should come with him and tell the good news. Moses brought a gift for Joel to thank him for inviting the western man to deal with him.

Silver Spoon Sterling Shackles episode 1 recap

Bear with me on the Silver Spoon recaps since I have too many series to recap at the moment. You guys probably read the recaps in some other blogs already.




The series set in the 1920s where the British took over the chinese. Idy Chan dropped her pearl necklace and blocked the British’s car. The British man slapped Idy but Damien came and said “A gentleman never strike a lady or let his wife get hurt.” First time I heard Damien speak english. Damien told the British ” I am a lawyer, I can assure you will be charge of crime unless you apologize to my wife in chinese .” The British man’s friend told him that Damien never lose a case. Damien said there are many people who saw the British’s car bumped in to Idy. Ooh Cafe Fleur, How Romantic! Idy told Damien at the Cafe that the pearl necklace was given by her father from Emperor Guangzhou but it’s now broken. Idy said the Quing Dynasty has fallen and she is now a princess. She is Madam Yee of the Chung Family and she is only the second wife. Damien said Idy is the most beloved among his wives. Mary Hon and Elena Kong wait for Idy. Mary Hon yelled at the servants that the maids should have reminded the mistress (Idy) that it is Guanying’s birthday. The executive Minister told Damien about the lack of rice. Kenneth told the British that slavery has been abolished in 1933 but now the women are still being abused. Damien told Kenneth he haven’t thought about things carefully. Damien told Kenneth to keep things low. When Damien comes home, Elena told him that Mary Hon is not feeling well. Vincent happily said he’s lucky he grew up in a wealthy family. Mary Hon got mad at Damien for missing the Guanyin offering. Damien walked with Mary down the stairs. Vincent told Kenneth and Angela to let Damien handle the situation. Kenneth smiled and watch Damien holding both Elena and Mary’s hands. Ron and other people tries to steal the rice. The businessmen discuss and laughed the the price of rice have gone up and they will earn a lot of money. Damien told Lau Kong that they should make money but not by making people starve. Damien said if people starve then they will become robbers. Kenneth suggest Damien to open a rice business in Shanghai and Wuhu region to break Lau Kong’s rice monopoly. Damien asked Kenneth to hire some martial arts opera dancers to celebrate Idy’s brithday and he wants to make it as big as possible. Tavia’s nose is pretty big or is it because it is too close up onscreen? Tavia asked Kenneth why did he tell her to perform for Damien’s family. Tavia asked Kenneth for 3000 silver but her trip has to be kept in secret. Tavia said she will not attend the press or interview and if he trip is known, she will leave. Tavia told Kenneth that she didn’t wear make up. Kenneth told Tavia that she looks like one of his friend. Tavia happily smells the bun and said it has been more than ten years. Rebecca Zhu plead the manager in the hotel and said she did not steal the watch. Tavia asked the manager if he really saw Rebecca steal the watch. Tavia said he has no evidence. Rebecca thanked Tavia. Tavia gave Rebecca some bun and said only those who have been hungry knows when they are hungry. Tavia’s servant yelled at Rebecca of what she is doing in Tavia’s room. Tavia touched the embroidery and is pleased with what Rebecca made. Tavia told Rebecca that what if she doesn’t like her embroidery, she could get in trouble. Tavia said she stood up for her because she didn’t like the manager. Tavia is teaching Rebecca a lesson about if she is weak, many people will strike her down. Tavia told Rebecca to not trust anyone so easily. I really like Tavia’s charac ter in this series. I agree with Tavia that it is hard to find a true friend. Idy celebrate her birthday with Damien.Idy was surprised that the food is so good at such a small restaurant. Supervisor Lai bowed to Idy. Supervisor Lai said Damien asked him to cook for her. Lau Kong budge in the restaurant and bother Damien. Idy told Lau Kong to respect his wife. Lau Kong accused Damien of being a foreigner and hang out with the British. Damien yelld that he is eligible to be the chairman. Idy’s godfather attend her birthday party. As the people in Damien’s party watch the play, Lau Kong ordered the police to arrest Tavia.

TVB 2013 Calendar Illegally Leaked Online, Seeks Legal Assistance

Yesterday TVB’s 2013 Calendar was leaked online illegally, which had greatly shocked the company. TVB immediately went to seek legal assistance, requesting websites and Weibo users to delete the photos. Each year, TVB gathers all of their popular artists to be part of the calendar and then give the copies to their clients. Earlier, the artists secretly went through the photo shoot, but yesterday morning the entire calendar was spreading around on Weibo.

Yesterday morning, a Netizen posted the entire TVB 2013 Calendar on Weibo, including the cover with the big group picture and the back page of the calendar with credits and list of production staff. The photos were marked to have been supplied by TVB. Many artists including Dodo Cheng, Tracy Ip and Samantha Ko were part of the reposting and spreading of the calendar photos. They praised the photos were beautiful, but their Weibo posts were later deleted. However, it was too late, the calendar was already madly spreading online.

TVB Deputy Director of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Tsang Sing Ming, expressed it was confirmed that the release yesterday was illegal and it was theft. The legal department is currently investigating. The outsourced company that produced the TVB 2013 Calendar wants to investigate to the source of the leakage. Mr. Tsang expressed the calendar is currently under post-production and has not reach competition of the final version yet.

Yesterday after the leakage, TVB quickly seeks legal assistance and issued letters out to Weibo and websites to delete the photos and stop spreading them. As this is illegal activity, TVB will get to the bottom of this and may seek assistance from the police.

Photoshopped Too Much & Weird Poses

The calendar is the index for favored artists, TV King and Queen hot favorites Raymond Lam and Kate Tsui took the lead, joining Bosco Wong, Aimee Chan and Linda Chung on the month of January; Myolie Wu’s status was clearly implied as she was grouped with three TV Kings, Moses Chan, Wayne Lai and Kevin Cheng on November; Kate’s greatest TV Queen competitor Tavia Yeung was paired with Fala Chen on February. However, the calendar appeared to have been photoshopped too much, which made the artists look somewhat “plastic” and unnatural! In addition, the artists had strange poses, like on January, Linda Chung was standing away from the group. Wonder if its because she’s afraid of rumors with Raymond Lam again? Eliza Sam, Samantha Ko and Natalie Tong showed off their legs, but that did not compare to Fala Chen and Suki Tsui in the 2009 calendar, where they were dressed in bathing suits and showing off their legs.

Note: Please remove the 2013 calendar and do not post it because you can get in trouble for copyright by TVB.
