1.I loved reading Japanese cartoons when I was a child.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Sonnet

1.2 CANDY CANDY (1975-1979) by Yumiko Igarashi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candy_Candy

1.3 CRYSTAL DRAGON (1981-ongoing) by Ashibe Yuho

1.4 A DOUBT GAME by Shibata Ayuko

1.5 GLASS MASK (1976-ongoing) by Suzue Miuchi
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass_Mask

1.6 HAIKARA-SANGA TOORU by Yamato Waki

1.7 DARKNESS OF THE SEA, SHADOW OF THE MOON (1986-1991) by Shinohara Chie
http://users.skynet.be/mangaguide/au1746.html

2.I loved watching many TV series when I was a child. My favorite TV series include:

2.1 BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY (1979-1981)

2.2 CHARLIE’S ANGELS (1976-1981)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073972/

2.3 CONSCIENCE (1994), a Hong Kong TV series starring Maggie Siu
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Conscience_(TVB)

2.4 GRIDTAYA (1989, Worayoot Pichaisoratat)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6e8qbE9i1c

2.5 PORN SEE LEUD (BLOOD-COLORED BLESSING) (1978, Adul Green), a Thai TV series on Channel 3 starring Nart Poowanai, Mayurachat Muenprasittiwate, and Chorpetch Chaiyanate. I think it is inspired by Agatha Christie’s AND THEN THERE WERE NONE.

2.6 PUNKY BREWSTER (1984-1988)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086787/

2.7 TUCKER’S WITCH (1982-1983)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083497/

3.I have always wanted to be a witch after I watched MIDNIGHT OFFERINGS (1981, Rod Holcomb)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082745/

4.I was crazy for Tom Cruise after I saw his images from the film TOP GUN (1986, Tony Scott). I thought he was very handsome. I decided to buy an illegal videotape of TOP GUN, which cost 200 baht at that time. But I was very poor. So I decided not to have lunch for 20 days, because my mother gave me 10 baht a day to buy lunch at that time. That’s the way I could save 200 baht to buy a videotape of TOP GUN.

5.My life as a blogger started in 2004 when I was frequently commenting on some Thai film webboards, especially Bioscope webboard and Screenout webboard. I thought I should collect all my comments in one place so that it would be easy for me to read my old comments. So I started LIMITLESS CINEMA blog at http://celinejulie.blogspot.com/ to collect all my comments in some Thai film webboards. I didn’t write anything directly for this blog at that time.

I started writing in English and writing directly for this blog in 2007 after I accidentally found out that Zach Campbell wrote about me in 2005. What he wrote inspires me to start writing in English.

6.When I was a teenager, my friends and I started imagining that we would like to watch a long-running TV series about many supernatural female characters fighting against each other. I still keep on dreaming about this imaginary TV series until now. It would be like X-MEN, but there would be no social concern and the focus would be on female characters. The title of this TV series is GODDESS.

The characters in GODDESS may include characters inspired by:

6.1 Queen Akasha from QUEEN OF THE DAMNED (2002, Michael Rymer, A+)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0238546/

6.2 The Queen of the Flower Palace (Maggie Chan Mei Kei) in the Hongkong TV series THE TWO MOST HONORABLE KNIGHTS (1988), starring Tony Leung Chiu Wei
http://www.spcnet.tv/TVB-Series/The-Two-Most-Honorable-Knights-p886.html
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2IHZPTSDVc

6.3 Asia the Invincible (Brigitte Lin) in SWORDSMAN II (1992, Ching Siu-tung)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103295/

6.4 Sailor Saturn
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sailor_Saturn

6.5 Judith, who beheaded Holofernes
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Beheading_Holofernes

6.6 Gudrun Ensslin (I would love to see this kind of character confronting someone like Sarah Palin or Condoleeza Rice)

6.7 Wink
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqBMqUbAq0U

  1. This is my reply to PC in my bilingual blog:
    http://celinejulie.blogspot.com/2010/02/peter-nellhaus-awarded-me-kreativ.html

    Hahaha. It’s ten baht for lunch, not ten baht for living. If I remember it correctly, a plate of fried rice with egg (ข้าวผัดใส่ไข่หนึ่งห่อ) in my old neighborhood in Bangkok cost 8 baht in the late 1980’s. As for my new neighborhood in Bangkok where I am living now, a plate of fried rice with egg (ข้าวผัดใส่ไข่หนึ่งถุง) costs 12 baht now, and a box of rice with omelette (ข้าวไข่เจียวหนึ่งกล่อง) costs 10 baht now. I still eat them from time to time, because I find it a little bit delicious.

    If I remember it correctly, I saved that money during the long school break (ปิดเทอม). I stayed at home the whole days and nights during that time, so I didn’t have to spend any money. My mother brought me breakfast and dinner, but I had to buy myself a lunch when she went to work. So I decided not to have lunch to save money for Tom Cruise. I didn’t remember if I suffered from any hunger during that time. Maybe I didn’t suffer much. Maybe I just ate some silly stuff in my refrigerator or ate some fruit for lunch instead.

    After I wrote this blog entry yesterday, I also questioned myself if I remember the details correctly. Maybe my mother gave me 20 baht for lunch, and I only skipped lunch for 10 days to save 200 baht. It happened more than twenty years ago, so I’m not sure if I remember all of the details correctly or not.
