Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are working hard at both filming the Sherlock special, and keeping all its secrets under wraps. Somehow along the way, they stumble onto new developments that need to be kept just as private.
((Hong Kong during 1700s: By the end of 1699 it was a wasteland and then by 1711 it was governed by the Xin’an County and it was one of Imperial China’s military forefront. Only in 1800s that HongKong got his name officially on documents.
Australia during 1700s: during the 1600s a dutch explorer mapped the land & called it “New Holland” and around 1700s a british explorer called it “New South Wales” for GB.
Welp. Just researched all this shit. Sorry for mistakes.))
Sorry some pictures are blurry! It’s very wet after the typhoon, so I’m nervous about holding out my phone for too long. There are some captions in the photos.
Taiwan has had its ups and downs mostly with family drama, but all the granduncles are cool. After Typhoon Nepartak passed yesterday, we went to release lanterns into the air at Shifen. (The typhoon barely grazed Taipei, so I was a little sad that I didn’t get to see it, but southern Taiwan would beg to differ.)
The lanterns are huge! Like almost 5-ft tall and color-coded with paper to resemble things like wealth, health, family, success, education, marriage, popularity, etc. We were mostly having fun with the lanterns that day, so we made some “joke wishes.” My joke wish was for more HongIce (and later added Macau at the end). Lots of families wrote long wishes and set them off into the air.
My brother wished for a successful marriage with a 2D girl. Some Dutch and Hong Kong tourists passed by and were very confused as to why it was 2D and not 3D?
The Nordics were asked what their favourite Disney movies were.
Here are their responses:
Denmark: The Little Mermaid, for obvious reasons. Though he is disappointed it’s not as close to the real story as it could be.
Finland: Brother Bear. He thinks it’s great and sad and could watch it for hours. After the third or fourth time though Sealand turns it off ‘cause he gets so fed up of hearing “tell everybody I’m on my way~”
Finland knows that song by heart.
Norway: he actually likes The Princess and the Frog. He finds the use of magic in it very intriguing, and likes the ending. It makes him smile (which results in him leaving the room before anyone can see)
Sweden: because he’s actually a really mushy person, it would be Oliver and Company. Finland’s lost count how many times Sweden’s cried at that.
Iceland: Mulan. He loves it and often watches it with Hong Kong. They both can literally repeat the whole film.
