TV review: The confidant 大太監

Series summary: The series is based loosely on Chinese history. Cixi is known in history to be a wicked great queen who took power from her son and grandson. Instead, this TVB series portrays Cixi to be benevolent mother and self-sacrificial ruler. It also follows the lives of the empirical eunuchs. Li grows up in the palace and minds his own business but eventually becomes the great eunuch shaping history.

My thoughts: 
My family fell in love with 彭三順. He was the bad boy- well he tried his best to be bad under the directions of his uncle but then gradually, he realised his mistakes. He truly repented and became a loveable character who has the interests of others in mind. He provided much needed comical relief to the otherwise serious drama. In contrast, we came to hate characters that were initially presented as good but later became evil. 

It's so easy to fall. To become the hated character in life. But many in the story failed to repent. When they were given the chance, they kept falling deeper and deeper into the fires of hell. It's so close to Christmas. We are reminded that we have been given a chance to have a new life just like 彭三順 we can choose to rebrand ourselves. We can live a new life. Or, like the other characters in the story, we can choose to let go of these chances and be condemned. 

Will you take this chance to live renewed? Do you want your loved ones to also have the hope of eternal life? 





Montell Jordan- Shake Heaven Christmas Remix
Lyrics from http://www.klove.com/music/artists/montell-jordan/songs/shake-heaven-christmas-remix-(feat.-beckah-shae)-lyrics.aspx




Twas the holiday season
And joy was abound 
The music of Victory
Made a wonderful sound
So while giving our love, and our gifts
And our things
Let's celebrate the birthday
Of the King of Kings

Verse I
Once there was a savior
Born in a manger
He brought us out of danger
Into the light
Now we got a reason
To celebrate the season
The birth of Jesus 
Gives us life

The angels all around are crying
Holy, Holy, Holy
Praising with a sound
That gives Him
Glory, Glory, Glory

Pre-Chorus
Are you ready now? Get ready now!
Let's all shout it out
Start shouting now!

Chorus
Gonna shake heaven (gonna shake heaven)
Join in together (join in together)
Jesus is the reason (Jesus is the reason)
We celebrate the season (we celebrate the season)
Gonna shake heaven (gonna shake heaven)
Join in together (join in together)
This is how we do it (this is how we do it)
We're taking back the music
And all the Angels say 
Oh, oh oh, oh OH!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Oh, oh oh, oh OH!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Verse II
Everybody stand up
Go on put your hands up
Recognize the bright and morning star
And will be a witness
All I want for Christmas
Is all Your children to know who you are

The angels all around are crying
Holy, Holy, Holy
Praising with a sound
That gives Him
Glory, Glory, Glory

Repeat Pre-Chorus

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
Lift high the name above all names
Jesus
We can live today because his grace
Freed us
Glory honor and power
Forever and forever Lord (4X)

Repeat chorus

Outro
It's Christmas
Shake heaven Christmas...
