We can do that too!
Anyway, my breakfast menu is usually haunting Linggluu's tumblr for the latest translation(s) of Nicky's Weibo, and also for more Nicky news. Here's what she translated from a Baidu user, clearly an avid fan of Nicky. I agree 100% with what the Baidu user said.
Nicky dear.... pls rest MORE, eat MORE and sleep MORE!I wonít leave ďa levelĒ for Big Brother (boss) anymore! (In baidu bars, the first post in the forum is often deleted so many users leave a ďlevelĒ as the first post to avoid that). Nicky Wu, youíve made me grieve so much! Look at yourself, what have you become now? Why are you so thin? Entering a beauty pageant? Why are you eating such a small amount? Dieting? Why do you sleep so little? Trying to clear your brain? Why do you have to let people worry about you? I know that whatever us fans say will let you feel sweetness and burden. I also know that youíre going in circles; this is your job, this is your responsibility, this is your duty. But, Wu Qi Long ah, have you ever thought that, even you donít have an products (films, songs, ads etc), those who truly love you wonít say anything. Making money makes you a star but being in the limelight for 30 years isnít easy. You know what your pandas think. We donít care what dramas, films you are in. Just because you are in it, we will watch it! Just for you! We donít care what songs you sing, what albums you release. If you sing it, we will listen to it, because of you!
Do you know why it looks like we are looking up to someone? Because its you! Whether or not your name is Wu Qi Long, Yong Zheng, I donít care, names, theyíre just a nickname in front of your charm. Whether or not Youíre popular, I donít care, news, do you really think are a god?
The one I care about, admire, praise about, love, is you. Working/fighting in this business for so many years, what kind of person you are, everyone knows. Fighting for your career for so many years, your achievements, everyone has watched/heard about. We love you, we donít want to become your burden. Thereís a phrase; time is like water, never talking, if you are good/well, itís always sunny. The experiences one has in life, trials and tribulations, what have you not gone through? What you should do now is eat well, sleep well and rest well.
If you donít give it your all, then are you not Wu Qi Long?
If you donít act in films, then are you not Wu Qi Long?
If you donít sing, then are you not Wu Qi Long?
Thinking about this, I should really thank pandas, especially those who have idolized you from the beginning, the ones that have been with you all the way, even if the whole world betrays you, you will still have pandas by your side. Youíve seen this manís growth throughout the years, his heartaches, bitter times, yet youíve always stayed. Youíve see his charms, his fights, happiness and never forgot. You guys are awesome! I look up to you!
Wu Qi Long, I am very confused today, looking at your pictures from these tv programs, I cried. Where are your muscles? What is that you call your chest? Ribs? Hugging my computer monitor,I only have one thing to say and I must let you hear it: If you donít have meat on your bones then donít come out and do things ( work ).
Youíre in your 40s, want to eat a little more?
You have lines on your face, want to sleep a little more?
You let people worry for you, want to not make them cry anymore?
Just because youíre the Boss you think your so big? Just because you send out Imperial Edicts on Weibo, Who do you think you are?
You are only you. A person from a normal family, a kid born naturally for the stage. But that doesnít mean you just risk your life to be on stage. Care about yourself every once in a while wonít you? Iím usually calm but for this past half year Iíve been crying non-stop because you. You have the heart to do this to people? Do you like it? Last warning: You better eat, sleep or else Iíll raise an army to come after you. Hmph!
comments: so ****ing true. even though he is a grown *** man and knows how totake care of himself, I do wish he did it better but yeah. WHAT SHE SAYS. I DONíT WANT RIBS. I WANT FAT PORK.
Because of that TVB variety show, I was reminiscening the days when Nicky was speaking in his very cute Mandonese (Mando accented Cantonese) This is a drama that Nicky was in for TVB in 2000 创世纪, this was when Nicky was still with Ada Choi
He sounds so cute in love....
Oh, did you guys watch this interview Nicky conducted with Nu Ying in October?

The last one was the interview where he played with rubber band and ate a lollipop given by his fans, right? too cute!!!
Oh, I found this one as well: He hurt his finger when he was shooting The Valiant Ones. I think he was/is REALLY a valiant guy!
Will watch the one with Ada later. Am at the office!
Nicky apparently loves tennis:
And he also SUPPORTS ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENTS!
Well, maybe he didn't do enough public appearance because in 2009 he was still recovering from his d-i-v-o-r-c-e?On August 25th, Wu Qilong, after having taken part in the benefit performance for the people in quake-stricken areas in Taiwan, made his first appearance in the mainland of China to take part in the closing ceremony for Ya’an Animal and Natural Film week. He also went to the Panda Protection Base in Bifengxia and adopted a panda baby.
After finishing the shooting of last film, Wu Qilong seldom show his appearance in public. It was told that apart from taking part in the Ya’an Animal and Natural Film week, Wu Qilong has gone to the Bifengxia Protection Base and adopted an panda. He eagerly called on people to protect the environment and the nature in activities. He said, ‘it is really an unforgettable experience to be such close to a panda. I hope that everyone can cherish and take care of every animal around us. Their existence is a great fortune on earth.
But he loves the nature! I'm so happy! (I should have known that, for he's also a diver and he loves panda... but reading this news makes me happy!)
Oh, can anyone tell me what happens to Joe (Nicky's character) and Tina (Ada's character) in this series?
Nicky loves tennis?! <swoon> Oh goodness, can he be more delicious?

So it was his calligraphy on the blackboard and the white fan!!! My favourite man... he's such an amazingly talented actor!!!
This is part of the 'Behind the Story' show where Nicky was asked about his dad, and then he cried
It's in English, so I can understand why he cried now...
Hi. This is my first post in this thread and I am hoping fans of Nicky will be able to answer my question. I am looking for his appearance in Happy Camp back in 2008 where he performed some acrobatic moves apart from singing and interviews. I saw a very short segment in youtube but I hope to see the full episode and I was wondering does anyone in here know where I can find such video, hopefully good quality, full episode and downloadable.
And yes, when he spoke of his early years in the entertainment and he choked and teared up in Behind The Story (that video above my post) I choked a bit myself. I am aware of his struggles but I didn't know how hard it was. I can only imagine 12 years to pay off the debt, his father must have owed a lot and for him to see it through without much complaints and whining, I find him to be very responsible and his gentle manner and a matter of fact way of retelling his story shows he is an honest forthright man. I was rather impressed with his honesty and so far only in this interview he teared up a bit. The rest he didn't even when he said the same story. I suppose this was the first time he was so forthright? I always read how his fans are worried about his lack of sleep or lack of food or his ex wife issue (How much did he pay her anyway??), and frankly I believe a man who has been through 2 decades in this business and spent the first 12 working non stop to pay off his father's debt is a survivor. I don't think there is any need to worry for him; he took care of himself pretty well from what I can see. Some people just don't sleep that much.
Anyway thanks again for your help. I hope I can find that episode!!

Hey Funnlim, sorry I cannot help you with the 2008 acrobat clip (yet), but if I do, I will definitely let you know. I saw the short version (TIFF I guess) in Linggluu's tumblr, and he was so cute!
Speaking of cute, this one is irresistable. Courtesy of lingglu.tumblr.com.
Quality's not the best. But it is the episode in full (part 2 is in a link underneath the screen). FYI- Nicky's not the only focus of this episode (blasphemy!...I know...) so you'll have to sit through the first bit that talks about pole-dancing as exercise. If you want to skip out on Haitao pole dancing, you can skip to around the 33min mark where they start to talk about Nicky.
Anyways, I think this video is a great example of how far he's come (emotionally) since his divorce. Maybe I'm looking too far into this, but it just seems like he has more sadness in his eyes, voice and demeanor. Especially compared to his Happy Camp episode with BBJX
Look at Nicky's cool shirt! He's always been a snazzy dresser
I ship Shi-Harem

Qi Guo’s pandas, do you all have drive/strength to go to work/class today? I’ll send you some black and white power to hold on if you don’t. Yesterday I was so busy with Legend of the White Haired Maiden, have decided to start filming in March. Hehe, so excited! I’m looking forward to it.
Has anyone heard of this series yet? Is Nicky the lead? I don't know much of the story though.
I was browsing exactly about the story yesterday after reading this! I think we should make the thread once the plan is clearer (should be done by someone who reads Chinese news tho).
The story begins in the Ming Dynasty during the late years of the reign of the Wanli Emperor. Lian Nichang, a female bandit leader nicknamed "Jade Rakshasa", is introduced as an impressive vigilante-heroine who uses her legendary swordplay skills to uphold justice and punish the wicked. Meanwhile, many government officials are implicated in a scandal to depose the crown prince, and they are executed or imprisoned. Zhuo Yihang of the Wudang Sect helps the crown prince reveal the truth behind the case and succeeds in clearing the name of his father, who was wrongly put to death.
While on his journey home, Zhuo Yihang passes by Mount Hua, where he meets a beautiful young maiden and falls in love with her. The following night, Zhuo Yihang joins some pugilists in a duel against the "Jade Rakshasa". However, Zhuo Yihang is shocked when he sees that the woman he met earlier is actually the Jade Rakshasa. He makes another startling discovery that the pugilists he is helping are actually spies working for the Manchus. Zhuo Yihang switches sides and helps Lian Nichang defeat the enemy. They meet a formidable swordsman named Yue Mingke, who is a military attachť serving under General Xiong Tingbi. After a duel, Yue Mingke and Lian Nichang realize that their respective teachers used to be a loving couple, but have separated due to a rivalry over achieving supremacy in swordplay.
In the meantime, the Taichang Emperor dies after consuming the mysterious Red Pills and is succeeded by the young Tianqi Emperor. The eunuch Wei Zhongxian and the emperor's wet nurse Madam Ke use the opportunity to deceive the naive ruler and usurp state power. Wei Zhongxian forms his own political clique and starts persecuting his opponents and the loyalists to consolidate power. Lian Nichang, Zhuo Yihang and Yue Mingke side with the loyalists and oppose Wei Zhongxian, playing key roles in disrupting Wei's evil plans in their respective adventures.
At one point, Yue Mingke is devastated after his lover, Tie Shanhu, dies tragically at the hands of Wei Zhongxian's lackeys. He becomes disillusioned with human society and becomes a monk, renaming himself "Reverend Huiming". He settles in the Mount Heaven region and spends his time studying martial arts.
During that time, Zhuo Yihang and Lian Nichang start to develop a romance and Zhuo is poised to become the new leader of the Wudang Sect. However, as Lian Nichang has a history of bad blood with Wudang, Zhuo Yihang's seniors and fellows strongly oppose his relationship with Lian. During a fight between Lian Nichang and Wudang's elders, Zhuo Yihang accidentally attacks Lian, causing her to misunderstand that he has betrayed her love. Lian Nichang is heartbroken and her hair turns white after she awakes from a long sleep. Depressed by her new looks, she travels to Mount Heaven and leads a reclusive life there.
Years later, Lian Nichang makes her name in the Mount Heaven region by slaying villains and defeating expert pugilists. She is known to the locals as the "White Haired Demoness". Meanwhile, Zhuo Yihang suffers from an emotional breakdown after losing Lian Nichang, and he leaves the Wudang Sect in search of his lover. After a long journey, Zhuo Yihang finally meets Lian Nichang on Mount Heaven, but she remains cold and indifferent towards him, refusing to accept his apologies. Zhuo Yihang learns that there is a rare flower that can turn white hair black again, but the flower only blooms once every six decades. He finds it and waits, hoping that it will bloom one day and allow him to reunite with Lian Nichang.
