      Hello everyone,   As promised, we're working on some changes to improve the forum and community! So far, here are the recent changes: Negative reputation has been disabled. Upvoting remains intact. This is a trial run to deal with whiteknights brigading certain topics and salty users mass-downvoting users they disagree with. Some text formatting options have been removed. Some users like to format their posts in ways that make them harder to read or downright obnoxious. (Light colors, tiny fonts, etc), so this helps make threads more readable. If you find yourself needing post formatting because you're making a new thread, please contact a mod and we will make it happen. New threads have to be approved anyway, so you're not going to have to start out with an ugly thread. Text formatting remains available to all users who have supported us via Patreon.No more threads on "Online Personalities". We will NOT lock or remove old threads, but we won't approve new threads about people who don't have any history of drama or controversies. Some threads will be moved to the snowflake sections if applicable. Read the new topic guidelines before you make a new thread.Here are our works in progress: New categories will be added. "Little Snowflakes" is too broad of a spectrum, so we're going to sort our flakes into a few sub-sections to keep things organized. We will also make more use of tags for those flakes who transcend categories. This will also allow us to appoint moderators to specific categories or snowflakes. New moderators will be onboarded soon.

    Honestly if she didn't do all that plastic surgery she'd look younger, which is what I assume she's trying to achieve. She literally looks 35+ because of the style of her makeup/ brows and fillers.

    I think it's yet another concert? Duncan mentioned in his video after Osaka that Mimei was at a BTS thing and couldn't help him film something, so there's the Osaka trip plus whatever BTS thing after it too.
    And goddammit Mimei just stop dying your hair to the point it looks like straw and let it recover.

    The thing with Taylor's modelling career is that it was clearly propped up by Tom, especially when she was in Japan and was super picky with the jobs she was offered. Surely if she hadn't botched her face with plastic surgery (or indeed, just stopped with the fillers), she could totally still model because of Tom's connections.
    For European models in Asia to achieve any amount of long term success, they usually pivot into becoming tarento, which requires learning the local language and gaining visibility via talk shows/ local TV etc., and then pivot into acting (usually filling the role of token foreigner).
    Taylor just has no languages skills, or interest in learning a foreign language, or both. Which means Tom is realistically the only way she's gonna get any real modelling work, or she can just continue to brand herself as an 'influencer' from now on.

    Actually idk why she doesn't try to model in HK. She was signed to a modelling agency and had a manager in Japan despite being picky as hell about her jobs, so it's pretty clear that a lot why she even managed to be a model despite being so picky was Tom's influence.
    Maybe she's over modelling as a career, or just that she has little control of how the finished result is, but considering her puffy cheeks in recent weeks in her own videos that wouldn't be a particularly good reason...

    This happens literally everywhere you go on holiday and don't speak the local language(s).
    Also, I haven't watched the video yet, but if they're literally just asking strangers to suggest what to buy, then to the stranger money isn't a factor because they're not the ones spending the money, so of course many of them would just pick whatever they wanted regardless of price.

    Oh damn I guess she had way more help than I realised... maybe I'm thinking of the early days when it was just Elbow-san as her cameraman? I guess she had PR/ consultants on her YT channel to help her grow it...
    And yea, that look book was disappointing. The polka dot outfits were all really bland and monotone - she didn't put much colour with them at all. I mean they were alright but they weren't... video worthy, to put it one way. She chases fashion trends but doesn't do them really well, and I doubt she's all that invested in the look book considering it's dragged on for months at this point.

    From what I remember, I'm fairly sure she only had a manager in Japan (she was signed to Satoru models and we saw her manager on 1 or 2 of her videos back then). As for editing, I'm pretty sure she didn't have an editor since she'd vlog herself editing occasionally. She definitely had help with subtitles when she was putting them on her videos though.

    Duncan's new video.
    Basically talks about what Mahoto did and how he's a terrible person. As much as I ragged on both him and Mimei for their new pet, I do have respect for him to say what he said.

    Duncan's most definitely referring to the Mahoto scandal here:

    This video was silly, but I think she was having fun and it was a fun watch for me too. The topic itself was random but... whatever? Like she got out and about and did something different from what we see in her vlogs.

    > calls Tsui Wah as 'this is basically your version of McDonald's'

    the HK version of McDonalds is... McDonalds. Tsui Wah is better described as a cafeteria. I wouldn't even call it a fast-food restaurant because of the variety it serves (seriously it's like a 15-18 page menu with soups/ noodles/ curries/ sandwiches/ etc).
    Something I find really annoying in her editing is that she slaps on the music way too loudly just before a transition, e.g. when she's talking about how exited she's feeling about shooting a lookbook before cutting to her making coffee, the music is almost full volume at the end of her dialogue about her excitement...
    Also Taylor had those terrible chipmunk cheeks back when she was in Japan too. She just keeps getting the fillers and the chipmunk cheeks keep reappearing.

    Honestly her food/ DIY stuff was the best, because even if a lot of it was taken from pinterest it still showed that she put thought and care into them. And even though they weren't my favourite, her weird makeup transformation videos were pretty popular and she could do more of those since they got the most views on her channel.
    Vlogs just aren't good for her because her daily life isn't interesting.

    The problem with Mimei is that she dyes her hair every colour under the rainbow and then wonders why it's thin/ falling out/ not healthy... like I got a suggestion, how about you stop bleaching it.

    ^ new video where they gave the dog the dumbest name on the face of this Earth.
    Like I get that 90% of the name is a joke, and I actually like those kinds of names (e.g. "our cat's full name is Elizabethan Princess Monster Truck Crusher 5000, but we just call her Liz"), but the short name is usually pretty normal and easy to say.
    They nicknamed the pom Puff Puff. -_____-
    As for Mimei's K-Pop obsession, imo it's fine to have your hobbies that you're hardcore into, but you just have to grow with them and realise that your way of interacting with your hobbies changes with age and life experience. Then again, who am I to judge what people do in their spare time; as long as they enjoy it and don't shove it in other people's faces, whatever.

    Omg no, it'd be such a dumb career move for her. I guess she might mention that it happened, but I very seriously doubt she'd go into it at all. I honestly don't think she's ever done a video where she mentioned politics in any capacity. I mean her whole channel is positive vibes and 'let's do this!' attitude, people aren't gonna tune in to her to see her talk about one country two systems problem.
