Asian Actresses in Period Dramas - (Mini Masterlist)

It’s not as easy to find an abundance of pictures for Chinese actresses as it is for actresses from elsewhere. Let alone actresses in period dramas. If you’re not an avid drama-watcher and just want an actress who’ll fit your period faceclaim, you might not know who to start with or who’ll fit. Because of this problem, I’ve made a little list of Asian actresses/models (mostly Chinese) in period dramas. In this, I’ll list who has enough pictures and even videos for you to icon and/or gif.

When searching these actresses, try to search both their Chinese and English (if they have one) names. Also search for their name followed by the their movie/show name. For video resources, I use Youtube. Now, let’s start with…

Liu Shi Shi / Cecilia Liu

Pictures for icon-ing: Very high (predominately on tumblr)
Videos for gif & gif icons: High (video(s) to look for: Imperial Doctress, Sound of the Desert, Chinese Paladin 3, Brotherhood of Blades)

Zhao Wei / Vicki Zhao

Pictures for icon-ing: Very high
Videos for gif & gif icons: Medium (video(s) to look for: Painted Skin, The Duel, Mulan: Rise of Warrior)

I had only expected another normal call.

Normal in my sense though, you know - the same greasy guys that had absolutely no chance to have sex with, I suppose, a normal person. They would hit me up with the same cringe-worthy ‘heey’ every time but it was alright because that was my job and I had gotten to this point in my life myself. I was alright.

But this- this was so far from normal.

Only a couple of minutes before I officially closed my line for they day, the phone had rung obnoxiously, startling me out of my small and cozy nap. I was prepared to kindly tell this person calling that he was a bit late and that I would not be able to schedule anything with him now- and that he could call earlier tomorrow.

Grabbing the phone and saying hello into the line, I was shocked to not hear another greasy ‘hey’ but instead a mature and deep voice speaking quickly. He spoke so fast and curtly that I was almost not able to understand anything. When I was finally able to focus, the voice stopped.

“Eh.. Hello?” My jaw was slack and I was only able to stare with wide eyes into the grungy wallpaper of my small apartment. I made a quick, internal note to starts saving some money to fix the place up.

The voice on the other side chuckled before sighing and starting again; slower this time. 

“Is this Y/N?”

Ever seen The Amazing Race come on TV before? If not, then I’ll tell you what it is! Originally an American show, The Amazing Race is a game where teams of two race across the ENTIRE world doing and participating in tasks they never would have dreamed of. With nothing else, but a partner, a map, and some money, contestants are thrown into completely unfamiliar surroundings trying to find their way to the finish line before the other teams do. If one was to be the last team to reach the finish line, that will be the end of their race around the world.

Have I Watched This Yet?
Yes ! However, I only watched the first season because I’m biased and my super duper lovely husband Wallace Chung was in it. I spent three nights watching every episode of Season 1 and it was AMAZING! It made my heart race whenever something happened to my favorite team and although I was only sitting behind a phone screen biting nails nervously, I would consistently cheer on my most favorite team and a few of the other teams I liked. Would I recommend this to any one else? Uh… Yes ! :D

Google AI is now as smart as a 6-year-old, IQ of Apple Siri half of Google's

How smart is Google? As smart as a six-year-old, says a report. Now that may not mean much but the report says that Google AI (artificial intelligence) is actually the smartest of its kind. There are other AIs too, but they are all behind the Google AI right now. Apple Siri, for example, has an IQ that is half of what Google AI has.

In a joint research report, three Chinese researchers – Feng Liu, Yong Shi, Ying Liu – have revealed that Google’s AI in 2016 had an IQ of 47.28, beating the Chinese search engine Baidu’s IQ of 32.92 and Microsoft’s Bing IQ of 31.98. The IQ of Apple Siri, as per the report, is 23.94 points.

The report also notes that none of the AI systems have an IQ of more than what a 6-year-old kid possess. Compared to an adult human, they are nowhere in picture. An 18-year-old, according to report, has an IQ of nearly 97 points.

The report does note that the AI systems are increasing their “intelligence” at a very rapid pace. Google AI and Microsoft AI have been getting smarter with time. The Microsoft’s Bing IQ which now has an IQ score of 31.98 had 13.5 in 2014 while Google’s AI had an IQ score of 26.5 back then.

The report establishes seven intelligence grades starting with 0, using mathematics formulas. Basically, the first grade systems are those things that fail to take instructions from humans. For eg- stones, water drops, wooden sticks and likewise. The second grade IQ holders can hold memories while the third grade IQ systems have a IQ similar to that of second-grade IQ systems only with “added capability that programs or data in their controllers and memories can be upgraded or augmented through non-networked interfaces.”

Examples of this are home computers and mobile phones. The last is sixth grade IQ which constantly innovates, creates new information using the “I/O ability, knowledge mastery, an application ability that all approach infinite values as time goes on.”

The report also talks about the AlphaGo, an AI program developed by Google subsidiary DeepMind. The AI made headlines for beating the South Korean professional and renowned Go player Lee Sedol in Seoul. The report did not assign any score to its IQ but noted that its IQ is below that of humans. The system lacks creativity and innovation.

Doodling and practising my calligraphy font! I’m sorry for not being active lately but I was trying to get into a routine (which hasn’t been working out very well; college is so tiring I’m collapsing on my bed the second I get home sigh) Hopefully things will settle down soon.

On a side note, Malaysia’s badminton mixed doubles pair Goh Liu Ying and Chan Peng Soon managed to get a silver medal in this year’s Olympics! Super proud since no one expected them to make it this far 💪🥈
