Dominant bushes

My neighbour Gisela informed me today about plants. "They are as different as human beings or animals. Some of them can be dominant, if they are cut down, they draw the strength of other plants by their roots!"
Dr. Schreck has a similar story: "What if the plant was to protect itself?"

Lieh Lo

Lieh Lo was the first Kung Fu superstar, preceding Bruce Lee. He was born in Pematang Siantar in 1939 to Cantonese parents and is the first Sumatra born Hongkong actor I know. He died ten years ago in Shenzhen, Guangzhou. He went to school in China after his parents left Indonesia and in 1962 joined the Shaw Brothers film company.

In The Lady Hermit (Zhong kui niang zi, 1971) he is only in a supporting role to the female stars, Pei-pei Cheng and Szu Shih. An usual hero, he donates a horse to Shang Yu-ling  (by giving it to her pupil, Chin Tsui-peng) and asks for the next poem line of Till I see thee, shall I die.The exaggerated violence in this film is left to the ladies. What a great movie!
