Miriam Yeung @ Atlantic City

Last week, I took a break from Wonder Women to see Miriam Yeung in person! She performed in Atlantic City on her My Beautiful Live world tour.

This is the second time I've watched a Miriam concert. Last time, I saw her in Hong Kong and she sang many side tracks. This time, she stuck to the classics. One thing I've noticed from her two concerts is that she does not spend a lot of time talking. Instead, she prefers to sing song after song, to fit in as many songs as possible for her fans.

Overview - Wonder Women

Miriam Yeung is a fashionable, cheerful, "multi-functional" housewife. She has a loving architect husband (Raymond Wong) and an intelligent and lively son. Her life is happy and blissful. She also has two close friends: the career-oriented Alice Chan and the beautiful, wealthy wife Rebecca Zhu. The three ladies have very different characters and views on love, and have experienced different bumps in their love lives. Raymond is completely focused on building his career and abandons his wife and son to go to China after he is caught cheating. Miriam becomes like an angel who has fallen to the ground with broken wings. Raising her son on her own and with an unpaid mortgage, she rents out a room in her apartment. Her squabbles with the tall, handsome, rich tenant Pakho Chau causes lots of funny moments. By chance, Miriam turns from a housewife to a famous chef. Pakho turns into her wings and helps her build her chef career. Women may wither because of one man's heartlessness, but can bloom again because of another man's affection. At this time, Raymond returns, seeking to remarry, while Pakho actively makes a move. The love triangle reaches a stalemate!

Overview - The Offliners

In Hong Kong, entering the financial, real estate or commercial industries are "down-to-earth" activities, but wealthy heiress Katy Kung likes being "off the ground." She and good friend Jason Chan open a tech start-up. A hacker incident allows Katy to witness the talents of IT genius Owen Cheung. She invites him to join the company. Owen is an "off-the-ground" homebody who disregards the world around him. With the help of nurse Moon Lau, he learns how to communicate well and starts to develop feelings for her. Katy and Owen go from having a difference of opinions to working together and complementing each other's weaknesses, and she unconsciously develops feelings for him. Katy initially believed that technoloy will bring beauty to the world, until Internet scandals successively hit her father (Joseph Lee), brother (Jonanthan Wong), and sister (Jacqueline Wong)!
