    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    From what Ew San posted on his IG stories she said something like ‘She lived in Japan for years and still can’t pronounce Japanese properly - I’ve been labeled pretty much anything you can instert here’.
    And there were some pictures of her flower vase hair.
    if you ask me, that seems just like bunch of crap I expected it to be. I wait for ‘work hard’ and ‘don’t give up on your dreans’, ‘you’re your only limit’ and few other ‘motivational’ phrases from a well off lazy brat who married a rich guy funding her fame.
    edit: there it is - photos of her baby fat labeled ‘pre phase Tay Tay’ ... in a university... I can’t believe Ew San didn’t tell her it’s not the right place... I can’t believe she did this!
    also, you can see guy reading news on his phone, that’s how into her speech he is lol

    I have the same feeling like the time with the dog shelter, but ultimately it will benefit the unfortunate ones so at least that’s good

    when you think about it, this makes sense - you really only see her with Natalie and Jessica (from time to time), the only time you see her with someone else is when she’s in Japan or Canada.

    we know where it will be held, but what is she going to talk about? Follow your dreams and find a rich guy to fund the dreams? What she can actually bring into business classes with no education or work experience?

    My best guess is HKUST as it’s Elbow’s uni where he graduated in business and gave speeches before, but I can’t find anything on KOL event or anything that could be remotely related to Taylor or her speech

    Ellen literally said ‘trend someone came up with’ - she wasn’t even named. It’s cool, but people are blowing it out of proportions like she was one of the guests.
    And I can’t get over her ‘be creative, work hard’ - said by the most hard working woman I know... now add it to the convo she posted from her DMs, and she now thinks she’s in the position to give people advise on their lives and careers, having no career whatsoever. That what annoyes me the most - she tries to build that image of hardworking successful woman, tell her young followers they can achieve anything if they only work hard while all she had is simply because she hooked up with a wealthy guy. She has no education, no job experience, no career, no hobby. Lifestyle, trips and houses are funded by Elbow, even her channel can run because he funded the equipment and supported her financially so she doesn’t need to work and can focus on YT. 
    Then girls think if they work hard they can get the same lifestyle - but that’s not true. It’s not hard work only, you need luck, right timing, right opportunities and people around you to succeed. 
    I smile bitterly when I see Taylor caoching her fans while she didn’t really achieve anything - YT is not her real work, there are YTers that actually depend on YT income so they put time, effort, they stick to schedule as without it they may be in trouble. For Taylor YT is to get fame and praises she craves, if she posts or not, it doesn’t make a difference to her lifestyle. MC is just a cherry on top of the things I dislike about her; which is sad because many years ago - pre Elbow time- I used to follow her career in Hong Kong and I thought of her as hard working person but it was all an illusion or another image she tried to pursue in HK.

    He did some speech before in his old uni for business classes so I’m sure this is definitely a little project of his. She has no knowledge or experience in business, she can’t even build her own consistent brand - I don’t think YT audience counts as any authority.

    Despite liking cat and dog videos, I wouldn’t give her views as well.
    Plus what threw me off is how she copied Buzzfeed - they did plenty of cat lover/dog lover videos but for this one she even tried to do this with the title! Makes me laugh whenever I read comments about her creativity.
    i know someone could say it’s nitpicking, but for a while she already gave me a vibe like she tries to get into their team lol

    Her friend is sister in law of famous HK actor Donnie Yen and the groom is son of a bank CEO who is supposed to be an entrepreneur (founded by his dad’s money) so you can only imagine their lives have green lights all the time.
    just in case you were wondering if they are loaded and where do they get time to do all this 🤑

    These cards look as similar as Taylor and Ew-san... who is she trying be to convince?

    I totally agree with the fact it takes time to build out the audience, especially for non-popular topics, even raising awareness of such takes awful lot of time, I just don't think she has patience - if it doesn't get viral or make her more popular she just ditches it

    She did lion dance, 10 episodes with foodie series on local HK food, Cantonese marriage traditions and trying on Cantonese wedding gear, last year she did CNY taboos... she did few of them, but she never seemed to get a lot of views comparing to the other videos. And since to me she seems desperate to go viral (that's why we get nose hair extensions videos etc.) I think she will eventually stop doing these at all. But I may be wrong, I would actually be happy if she proved me wrong as I like these videos of her 
    As for the business - I wouldn't be surprised if it was all Ew-sans idea, and she just hops on the wagon as 'her business' so she can keep the image of hardworking and ambitious girl she tries to pose. He will just use her YT fame as a platform to expand his business, and she gets the glory of 'not being only trophy wife, but also doing soooooo many things and she's a real business woman'.

    the thing is - does she really want to change? or is she happy with viral videos more than informative ones?
    over the years I've seen her fame hunger and hopping on trends to help her be even more popular. 
    I actually think she did the informative videos to see if this will be her 'niche' of which Ew-san keeps talking about (not many white foreigners in Hong Kong do actual informative videos, most of it is lifestyle only), but the niche didn't go as viral as she expected it to be so she will eventually dump it, just like everything else (being doll, being vegan, actually sticking to posting schedule, change of website - I heard about like two years ago?). I lost hope for this girl, especially after she defended pedo-san, adding the Kardashian obsession to this only proves all she wants is lavish lifestyle and being famous with very little effort. But that's just my opinion

    Just a random thought - I don't think Taylor will keep doing informative videos she puts effort to. Lion Dance video had little over 60k views while her IG model video over 700k, even the new flat video already has over 100k. 
    If you look through video history, all her informative videos are on the lower side comparing to 'trying hard to be famous' videos. As someone so fame-hungry, I don't think she will keep on doing something that won't make her go viral. Too bad, probably the only thing left to watch at her channel.
