The Beautiful Liu yi Fei (劉亦菲).....................

Crystal Liu or Liu yi fei is a very talented Chinese actress and singer. Born in Wuhan, Hubei province the Republic of China on August 25 1987, she started her showbiz career at an early age.
She began modeling at the age of 8 and was trained in singing, dancing and the piano. Moving to the United States at 10 with her mother, Liu lived there for four years. She returned to China in June 2002 to pursue a modeling and acting career.
I first saw her in the popular chinese TV series The Return of the Condor Heroes, and the forbidding Kingdom with Jet Li and Jacky Chen. This TV series was very well received in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan and helped Liu establish her reputation and popularity overseas.


She made her first debut into singing in 2005 when she secured a recording contract with Sony Music Entertainment Japan. After taking up singing and dancing lessons for a year, her album Liu Yifei was released regionally in mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and throughout South-East Asia in August 2006.
She also released her Japanese album in which the single, The Gate of Late Night, was chosen to be the theme for an animation series by Tokyo TV.

Hi Michael,

Happy (very) belated birthday. I didn't realize your BD was so close to mine. I hope you enjoyed it.

Ah, your daughter's first bicycle ride. She's growing so fast, isn't she...Next thing you know, you'll be walking her down the aisle, lol.

BTW, I ate durian for the first time on Saturday. I have to agree with most people--yuk! Have you tried it?

You mentioned hoping to come back to Taiwan soon. Just so you know, you're always welcome here in Taoyuan :-)

Take care, Steve
