Victoria BeckhamVictoria Beckham plans to open her first shop in London.

The fashion designer is already working on getting her first ever standalone store in the English capital city and she also hopes to open retail units in Hong Kong.

"People say, 'Am I going to have my own store?' I would love to. That's what I'm working on at the moment. It would probably be in London, but in the not-too-distant future maybe it will be Hong Kong. Who knows?" she said.

The 38-year-old brunette is eager to take her business as far afield as possible and she sees Asia as a "very exciting" prospect, but the former Spice Girls singer is conscious about the dangers of expanding her fashion empire too quickly: "What I do really is not just focus on the US or England. I mean there are a lot of territories that are really big for me and Asia is very exciting. I'm just scratching the surface at the moment. I want take baby steps with this business; I don't want to run before I can walk."

Lego Beijing

We love those Lego gadgets and couldn’t pass this one up. About 4,500 people that comprise the Hong Kong Lego User Group were so inspired by the Beijing Olympics that they created their own version. The mini-tribute measures 10 x 26 ft. and took over 300,000 bricks. Included are the Birds’ Nest Stadium, the Water Cube aquatic center (inside and out,) equestrians, cyclists, ping pong, and beach volleyball. It was recently on display at the Grand Century Palace in Hong Kong. We think it should go on tour. More pictures available via the link of the Daily Mail.

Jackie Chan Disappointed By ‘Rush Hour’ Films

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: New Line, Action, Comedy, Celeb News,

Jackie ChanShould we excuse an actor for making a film he didn’t even like—especially when it takes in millions of our theater dollars? 

, who co-starred with in the series, is now admitting his indifference toward all three installments.

Although he never really understood the humor, the Hong Kong star participated in the original 1998 version in hopes of establishing crossover appeal.  Money and ‘fan satisfaction’ were simply the motivators for the next two.  Granted, he wouldn’t be the first person to admit he made a sequel for the paycheck—but he may be one of the few to admit he wasn’t a fan of his own work (especially when his movie is still in the theaters).  And while the fight scenes might have been too watered down for Chan’s taste, American audiences liked them enough to help each film gross over $137 million or more.

So what do you think about this?  Do you believe Chan should leave his preferences/opinions behind if he’s going to make a film in the US?  Is it right for him to bash a series he was partially responsible in making?  Or do you agree with his perspective on the Rush Hour series overall?

Robo Waiter Takes Orders

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech, Science,


This engaging little Robo Waiter is in Hong Kong taking orders with no backtalk. He shows customers to their tables and waits until they speak into his microphone. The message is then relayed to the kitchen where we presume it is still cooked by a real person. Peter Chow, Director of CyberRobotics Technology, claims that restaurant sales have increased by 20 to 30% since he has been “hired.” Although the bot does not deliver food, it is certainly a big improvement over that tacky Jack In The Box clownhead speakerphone.
