天龙八部 (Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils)

I’ve been busy today. So much so that I totally forgot breakfast and almost forgot lunch.

Now I’d like to say that I was busy doing constructive things, like sorting out the photos for my blog, or starting on re-writing my book, or something equally important.

But, the thing is… I suddenly discovered last night that I could watch the TV adaptation of one of my favorite 金庸武侠小说 wuxia novels by Jin Yong: 天龙八部 Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils. The entire series, 40 episodes of it.

This is the TV series than introduced me to 刘亦菲 Liu Yifei and turned me into her fanboy.

I first saw it on TV back in KL many years ago, but for some reason, I was not able to watch more than 10 episodes of it. Was it because I had to leave for the UK? Or because I had to leave for Penang? 🙄

I love wuxia novels and the corresponding TV adaptations, with all those fantastic martial arts where you can explode a mountain just by the power from your palm or even fingers.

Anyway, suffice to say, I am now like a walking zombie due to the lack of sleep. I spent all night chasing episode after episode of intense actions.

Err… no no no… not those actions, I mean these…

I’m just taking a short time off to update this blog to maintain the [a post a day] facade. Now I’m going back to finish all the episodes by tonight so that I can do some productive works tomorrow… 😉

I’m going to start on this episode now…

    • I… cannot one. I need to keep watching and keep watching until either the whole series is finished or until I fall asleep due to fatigue… 🙄

  1. Wah you can gasak 33 episodes in one day ah? I was surprised to see your post so early today. Since you are starting epi 34 after this post definitely you will be able to finish it unless your line goes down. Choi choi choi.

    His work that I like best is yi tin dou long gei. The tv series version starring yip tong.

    • I got fast forward certain parts lah when it seems like it will be boring. I’ve read the novel so I know the story more or less. 😛

      I actually prefer 神雕侠侣 with Yang Guo and his Gu Gu. I used to like TVB versions, but I have to admit, the more recent China versions are nicer. (Mostly because the girls are hotter) 🙄

      • Then have you watched 刘亦菲 Liu Yifei as Gu Gu in 神雕侠侣 2006? I guess you would love it even more with her as Gu Gu.

        • I’m watching it… now. 😳

          I watched only a few episodes sporadically on TV, I think they only came on our TV some time after I came to Penang, and I have no TV in Penang. But no matter, now got Youtube 😉 .
