Sexy ghost too sexy for most?

20 Apr - A sex scene between Chinese beauty Crystal Liu Yi Fei and Louis Koo in "A Chinese Ghost Story" has apparently been lost to the cutting room floor for its 18-rated theatrical release in Malaysia.

Playing demoness and demon hunter in yet another adaptation of the popular story, the said scene appears very early on in the film and is part of a flashback montage about their ill-fated romance.



No comment can be obtained from Golden Screen Cinemas, who played it at the Malaysian preview for pressmen yesterday.

However, it is learned that the Singaporean version, rated a tame PG (Parental Guidance), does not suffer the same.

23-year-old Crystal Liu plays Nie Xiaoqian in this Wilson Yip ("Ip Man") reupdate on the Qing Dynasty fable.

The cross-genre movie reveals plenty of bareback action from her, while she was also noted to have appeared in a low-cut golden dress to compliment her figure at the Beijing launch earlier in February.

In 2008, Liu starred with martial arts icons Jet Li and Jackie Chan in "The Forbidden Kingdom", in which she played Golden Sparrow, an orphan seeking revenge against her parents' killer. In 2010, she starred in "Love In Disguise" with Wang Lee Hom.

"A Chinese Ghost Story" opens tomorrow in Malaysia under the distribution of Golden Screen Cinemas and in Singapore under the joint-distribution of Golden Village Pictures and Encore Films.

    For the record, it's the year 2014. I mention that in case someone reading this story about a push to replace horses with motorized carriages thinks they've stumbled onto some archival piece by accident. It's been more than 100 years since the first vehicles began to trundle around Manhattan, but the last remaining vestiges of horse-powered transport in the city could be nigh — if the backers of a massive electric wagon get their way.

    2015 Acura TLX blends two sedans into one alphabet soup

    Nearly three decades have passed since Honda gave us the car we didn’t know we wanted: a fancified Accord called the Legend, which Honda sold under a newly created luxury brand called Acura. Acura, along with the Lexus and Infiniti brands that followed, proceeded to turn the luxury market on its nose. But since then, everyone from Hyundai to Bentley has stepped up its luxury game while Acura got a bit lost in ubiquity with a cadre of similar-looking products, all with confusing alphabet soup names like ILX, TSX, TL and RLX.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
