Another couple successfully paired off in the past two years of marriages and relationships.

Following their matchmaker Dong Xuan, who married last year, Li Xiaolu and Jia Nailiang got engaged yesterday after three years of dating. Jia Nailiang proposed to Li Xiaolu while attending a LETV award ceremony. Supporting her are her friends, including Yang Mi, Tong Liya and Lynn Xiong, whose relationships all became official within the last year.

“Xiaolu, meeting you is the best thing that’s happened to me. I’ll … I’ll protect you with my life, make sure no one hurts you, and use my hardwork to make you live happily for the rest of your life. Xiaolu, give me a chance to take care of you for a lifetime. I love you, will you marry me?,” he said to her during the proposal, which she accepted.

Watch the proposal on video here (lol at Liu Yun’s shoutout to Chen Sicheng, and double lol at Someone Like You?) .  On a side note, Li Xiaolu’s new series, “AA Life.”  is airing  on Hunan TV, while Jia Nailiang will star in a new series based on author Tonghua (Bu Bu Jing Xin)’s only modern novel.

Other main cuts on the album include the next plugs "Forget Me Not" and "See You Someday", the Cantonese version of his Sherman Chung duet "Fools", and his duet with Alex Hung called "Four Weeks Heartbreak".

New Cecilia Cheung Movie "Shadows of Love" to Air on May 11

I'm trying to figure out the plot right now, but it seems like Cecilia plays the role of a successful CEO who when missing so her lover (played by Kwone Sang Woo) found a double so the company wouldn't be in trouble. Also in the main cast are Angela Zhang and Jing Boran, who seems to be playing a couple.

 There's no Jing Boran tag?

China finally stops being awful

China ends repatriation of North Korean refugees

By Bose Chan

China has officially announced that it's ending its time-honored practice diplomatic practice of sending North Korean refugees back to the DPRK to face possible execution, with official Chinese government sources saying refugees being sent back is effectively"the end of their lives".

The move comes amidst shifting realities in the relationship between the two socialist states who share a deep and complex history. China's rising economic and military power makes her the most watched country on the global scene, and many have expectations of China taking on agreater role in international leadershipand more significantly, a change in attitude towards political transparency and human rights issues.

Could the new policy change have come about as a result of being left out of the loop regarding the rather roguish recent rocket launch? Human rights activists can celebrate the fact that poor communication between China and North Korea has led to the end of refugee repatriation, which is an indication of the greater strain between China and the DPRK.

The National Post quotes an anonymous source who claim the two states, like, totally aren't BFF's anymore:

“Our relationship with North Korea is no longer ‘If the lips are gone, the teeth will be cold’,” a second source with leadership ties said, quoting a Chinese idiom. “Nowadays, the teeth keep biting the lips, and it’s hurting.”
