The Mysterious Death of Elisa Lam

The body of Elisa Lam, also known by her Cantonese name, Lam Ho Yi (simplified Chinese: 蓝可儿; traditional Chinese: 藍可兒; April 30, 1991[1] 2013), a Canadian student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, was recovered from a water tank atop the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19, 2013. She had been reported missing at the beginning of the month. Maintenance workers at the hotel discovered the body when investigating guest complaints of problems with the water supply.

Her disappearance had been widely reported; interest had increased five days prior to her body's discovery when the Los Angeles Police Department released video of the last time she was known to have been seen, on the day of her disappearance, by an elevator security camera. In the footage, Lam is seen exiting and re-entering the elevator, talking and gesturing in the hallway outside, and sometimes seeming to hide within the elevator, which itself appears to be malfunctioning. The video went viral on the Internet, with many viewers reporting that they found it unsettling. Explanations ranged from claims of paranormal involvement to the bipolar disorder from which Lam suffered; it has also been argued that the video was altered prior to release.

Does anyone remember Wang Yue? (not for faint of heart)

This story still sticks with me because it was just so avoidable.


Wang Yue (Chinese: 王悦; pinyin: Wng Yu), also known as "Little Yue Yue" (Chinese: 小悅?, was a two-year-old Chinese girl who was run over by two vehicles on the afternoon of 13 October 2011 in a narrow road in Foshan, Guangdong. As she lay bleeding on the road for more than seven minutes, at least 18 passers-by skirted around her body, ignoring her. She was eventually helped by a female rubbish scavenger and sent to a hospital for treatment, but succumbed to her injuries and died eight days later. The closed-circuit television recording of the incident was uploaded onto the Internet, and quickly stirred widespread reaction in China and overseas. Many commentators saw this as indicative of a growing apathy in contemporary Chinese society.

*warning! it's hard to watch, even harder to watch nobody do a thing to help her.

I seriously can't find anyone who likes Empire of the Sun

Probably their most popular song, but this is my favorite band. It's just hard finding anyone who's HEARD of them!


Let me start off by saying I'm VERY proud of my Chinese/Malaysian heritage and background. I moved to the United States since I was 13 to attend school and haven't been to Kuala Lumpur other than to visit family. I consider myself primarily westernized as American culture and ways are what pretty much shaped to adult I am now. However, part of me feels shunned by some Asian communities when I can't speak Mandarin as if I'm an outcast or something and it bothers me because these are Asians living in the same country I am ridiculing me for not speaking their language?
Anyway, my point here is that being westernized shouldn't be considered a sin to the Asian community but I guess ignorance is everywhere.

LGBT films

I didn't see a thread in this or entertainment on LGBT films but I watched a beautiful and funny part one and two Thai lesbian films called "Yes or No" (1 & 2 obviously). The humor was just right, very endearing and sweet and ok, I bawled my eyes out at certain parts. It easily became one of my all time films after it was over. It has JUST the right amount of elements I personally enjoy from a romantic comedy. Btw, they are both available for free on YouTube!
