With the help of the Qing government looted people's wealth, his family lives in extravagance. Muhai's favorite is the youngest daughter Ai Yue, bright and intelligent, very understanding towards others but she is very clear on the lines of love and hate, she is not like other family members always ordering people around, shouting at the servants. Enmity developed between Ai Yue and servant girl Ah-Ci due to a small matter. Ah-Ci is a silly girl, no matter the time of day she likes to dance with bamboo pole and smoke box, sings folk songs. Her singing infected/influenced Ai Yue, always being mischievous with Ah-Ci. At the fire/flare festival is a handsome bright young fellow named Liu Bo En and Long Chulai, four young people meeting each other, get along very quickly.

    Ai Yue gradually falls for Bo En, but she's too proud and unwilling to reveal her feelings. Instead this lets Ah-Ci to have the opportunity to be with him. Ah-Ci is passionately in love with Bo En. Long Chulai admires Ai Yue, but because of his ugly looks he keeps it to himself, can only secretly love Ai Yue.

    Muhai suddenly dies, putting the heavy burden of the Duan family on Ai Yue's shoulders; on one hand she has to develop the tea garden, on the other she has to subside internal friction. For a while she is mentally and physically exhausted, fortunately Ah-Ci and Long Chulai comes out to help. As time wears on, Ai Yue developes a subtle feeling for Long Chulai, cannot say whether it's love or friendship.

    The tea garden is becoming a success, Sandao tea becomes a sort of a local trademark. The members of the Daun family, under Ai Yue's training, each learned survival skills, they are no longer useless people who only eat and drink. At the same time Bo En returns, but Ai Yue discovers that her relationship w/ Ah-Ci has grown apart.

    In 1915 Yuan Shi Kai proclaims himself the new emperor. The movement to protect the country starts in Yunnan, Ai Yue donates a massive amount of money to help the new army bring down Yuan. Long Chulai and Bo En join the movement together, heading go off to Yixing, defeats the northern army in the famous "Battle of Lu Na," but news about Bo En's death is transmitted from the front.

    Ai Yue and Ah-Ci continue to manage the tea garden, both of them reconcile. Ai Yue unconditionally gives the tea garden to all the workers; as time passes, people start to forget the name of Ai Yue, only know that she comes from Dali and so they call her: "Dali Princess."

    "Dali Princess" Begins Shooting; Lin Hsinju Liu Tao Big Acting Challenge
    poponline.com.cn, 12/22/05

    "Dali Princess" is a 30 episode TV series jointly produced by the Dali state government, Dali Tourism Association, China Great Wall Cultural Center, and Zhuhai Film and Television company. On the morning of the 20th, "Dali Princess" held an opening ceremony in Dali. The series' main actors Lin Hsinju, and Liu Tao were hugging each other in front of reporters, likes two sisters, one would've never guess that in "Dali Princess," the two of them are a pair of "enemies."

    "Dali Princess" is about the prosperity and downfall of a prominent Bai family around the 1911 Revolution. It's a large-scale, made-to-order TV serial to promote the Dali Bai ethnic culture, its natural scenaries, and its people and history. Lin Hsinju plays spoiled rich girl of a Dali Bai ethnic Duan family Duan Ai Yue; Liu Tao plays the Duan family servant Ah-Ci. Ah-Ci's parents and younger brother were killed by Ai Yue's father in a fire, and when she grew up, she returns to Dali to exact revenge - to snatch Ai Yue's away through some sort of distorted love, kicks Ai Yue out of the house, who ends up destitute in a Ma Bang clan.

    On the discussion of her own role, Lin Hsinju expressed this time it is very different. "Other than Princess Jian Jing, the rest were all gentle (roles), perhaps the one people having a more profound impression of is HZGG, like those gentle and delicate roles. So this time I think, she is one who matures, her innermost feelings matures and changes, therefore this is where she attracts me in the first place."

    [size=18]"Dali Princess" Filming in Yunnan Lin Hsinju Depends On Plastic Wrap to Get By[/size]
    ent.sina.com.cn, 12/29/05 05:19; Reporter Meng Yuanyuan

    Lin Hsinju is "HZGG's" delicate beauty Ziwei, or "QSSYMM's" outgoing, kind Ruping? Personally, is she quiet, or active? Yesterday, her mgmt. company's PR rep. arrived in Yunnan Dali to visit Lin Hsinju and Liu Tao's "Dali Princess." With the help of this staff member, this newspaper reporter was able to conduct phone interviews with these two beauties during a break in filming.

    Treat plastic wrap as an enjoyment
    On the other side of the telephone it seems that Lin Hsinju is extremely relaxed. Although this time she's a "princess" in scenic Dali, but Lin Hsinju said she's so busy she doesn't have time to look at the scenery, "to an actor, the pressure from acting is one side of it, a lot of times we also have to face difficult filming environments. I treat them all like a type of enjoyment, this is perhaps due to my positive point of view. Because it's already year's end, us wearing these thin costumes, will feel that the weather good is very cold. Everybody is working very hard wrapping themselves in plastice wrap (for warmth); wrapping myself tightly in plastic wrap for 3 to 4 continuous days."

    Depend on snacks to get through 18 hour work days
    Lin Hsinju told the reporter, in order to be on schedule, filming around the clock is a routine matter, under the oppression of working more than 18 hours a day, want to be in a good mood, she has her own secret method — — eat snacks. She said: "In terms of good food, I like the local snack 'ba ba,' and also that 'kao ru shan' the most." And then spilled the beans about Liu Tao to the reporter: "She's like me, especially loves to eat snacks. On the set, we have all kinds of snacks, we would eat and talk during break time, and talk about snacks. This way your sleepiness and tired feeling would slowly dissipate."

    Would only say who "he" is when getting married
    During the opening ceremony for "Dali Princess," Lin Hsinju's rumored boyfriend Stanley Tong also appeared in Dali. He said frankly that visiting Lin Hsinju was one of his main purposes in Dali [he never said that], but when questioned about their relationship, he turned around and ran. Yesterday, as soon as the newspaper reporter mentioned Stanley Tong, Lin Hsinju laughed immediately to prevent the topic from continuing: "(Sigh), don't ask about this. A lot of the reports, each time they're different rumors. I will not publicize 'him,' unless I decide to get married!"

    Princess Diary 3, Dec. 29th
    "Princess" improves her own meals


    On December 29, clear

    In regards to Hsinju's first time in Dali, Liu Tao naturally has become her free tourguide. And after the various kinds of food on foreigner street has gotten Lin Hsinju's attraction, the two of them started searching for good food. The staff meals are typical; even if it's delicious, eating it like this everyday, after a few months you'd get sick of it. Today the princesses tell the us, how they resist eating the staff boxed lunch.


    The staff boxed lunch: little meat, lots of beans

    Lin Hsinju: She took us to foreigner street from the first day, we went to the bar to eat hot pot, roast crab. After that we've been eating the boxed meals, the kind that does not have any meat, there's ground meat, the preserved meat is fatty, mushrooms, different kinds of bean. Also there's Dali cookies. I thought the Dali cookies were delicious. I bought $2, they bought $1 .....

    These two princesses when they just arrived to Yunnan along with the production team, they had plans to stroll around on their free time, to enjoy the beautiful Dali sceneries. But they hadn't thought that the shooting of "Dali Princess" turned out to be very intense every single day, this bored the both of them to death. Hence, they could only puts all their limited time and energy into improving their daily meals. Now, eating — — has already become they biggest pleasure.


    Eat less of boxed meals, search for good food

    To them, the staff meal is definite not enough. Privately, if there's something good to eat certainly cannot forget about your good friend/sister.

    Liu Tao: For instance, today I'd say there's a good pizza place, she'd say I know, I know, I want to go too. And then would say I know there's a good hot pot place, really?, let's go next time, something like this. Yeah, because filming in this type of a non-urban place, we can only find some happiness from eating. Because the places we shoot at have beautiful sceneries. We have already gotten used to the life of living here. That is say we want to make up it to us, eat less of boxed meals, right, eat some good food.

    Princess Diary 4, Dec. 30th
    "Princess" falls in love with the Puerh tea


    On December 30, clear

    Yesterday Princess Diary recorded the "princesses'" food, today of course talk about what they drink; what the princesses drink is Yunnan's specialty — — Puerh tea.


    "Princess" uses Puerh tea to fight grease

    Lin Hsinju: (Puerh tea) Before it's soaked it looks very black, but the very good that kind of Puerh tea, if you have eaten very greasy stuff, drinking that would really gets rid of grease. I think it's very good tea. (laughs)

    Actually it's not just our princess Hsinju who loves Yunnan's specialty Puerh tea, every production crew that has been in Yunnan would have been overflowing w/ the smell of fragrance from Puerh tea. And to Hsinju, not only can she enjoy Puerh tea herself, but also makes good gifts.


    "Princess" gives out scented tea as gifts

    Lin Hsinju: I bought a lot of Puerh tea to give to people. Last time when I returned to Hong Kong to film I bought over ten boxes, they were awfully heavy. This tea thing I think makes very good gifts to our elders. If giving it to friends, the tea can help them lose weight, I think it's great. No wonder Hsinju loves Puerh tea this much, as a matter of fact it's biggest effect is it may help in losing weight. Since it is a good thing, the "princesses" would definitely share it together. Every day a pot of Puerh tea, is Liu Tao and Lin Hsinju's necessary drinks on the set.


    "Princess" understands tea, not jade

    Lin Hsinju: I tell everybody that Dali is like a fairyland, good place for the gods to live.
    Liu Tao: There's also a lot of people who buys Burmese jade in Dali, as long as you don't buy fake ones, actually you can find good bargains.
    Lin Hsinju: She (pointing at Liu Tao) knows a bit more, I don't don't.
    Liu Tao: Actually it not how good it is (jade), it the thought that counts.
    Lin Hsinju: What if they open w/ the prices of $1,000, I don't even know how do negotiate for a bargain.
    Liu Tao: Actually as long as you like it's fine.
    Lin Hsinju: I think the most important thing is you like it yourself.

    Princess Diary 5, Dec. 30th
    Boxed meals off duty, egg friend rice on


    On December 30, clear

    Today, the staff box lunch to the two princesses is that, it officially goes "off duty." Don't know when the two of them found a little restaurant on the set, today they especially ordered fragrant egg fried rice from that place.


    "Princess" left alone, seeks someone to accompany her

    After eaten just a little, Liu Tao had to go to another set, leaving Hsinju behind, unavoidably feeling somewhat lonely. Can't help it, quickly look for someone on the set to accompany her. Found out the crew is heading to the little restaurant to eat eat egg fried rice, Hsinju happily goes along.


    People gathered together to cook for "princess"

    Just finished eating egg fried rice with Liu Tao, Lin Hsinju didn't want to be left alone so she joined in the fun, but never thought that as soon as she arrived at this place her appetite immediately opened up again. Since the "princess" has such a good appetite, everybody naturally did not dare to neglect her. The director and the camerman personally went into the kitchen to cook for the "princess." And the "princess" is not idle at all, got up immediately to supervise.

    After a short while, the beloved egg fried rice of the "princess" is done. It's just that the "princess" did even have the chance to go forward, everybody swarmed in, in comparison the director's cooking skill is pretty good. Hsinju also rushed over to join in. It looks like, this egg fried rice is quite attractive to her.


    Foreigner Street





    Enter the world of RL, there is food, food and more food :lol:
    Jis love it how she can enjoy eating freely without worrying about anything :lol:



    This pick cracks mi up, she looks so rural in that vietnamese hat! :lol:

    It seems like Liu Tao and Ruby are getting along really well, a new friendship bond? They both love food and have a great appetite. I guess they spend most of their time recommending different cuisines, trying new food and comparing the foods. The Princesses life of food :lol:

    Btw its interesting how the media is documenting all their daily activities in a diary format.....keeps us updated.

    Liu Tao Anxious to Please Future Mother-in-Law, Lin Hsinju Flabbergasted
    udn.com, 01/06/06; Reporter Chu Pei Jun

    In front of future mother-in-law, former People's Liberation Army soldier becomes a gentle woman! The other day Liu Tao's boyfriend Li Weiw Wang Min's mother travelled to Shanghai, Liu Tao was anxious to please this future mother-in-law; woke up every day at 6 a.m. to make breakfast, afraid she might wake up later than the elder; after Lin Hsinju heard about this she is dumfounded, shakes her head w/ a forced smile: "I really tip my hat to Liu Tao oh, I cannot do this, I'm dead/finished, does this mean I can't get myself married off?"

    Lin Hsinju and Liu Tao are in Yunnan Dali shooting "Dali princess," the temperature is cold, these two pretty girls as soon as they get out of bed they wrap themselves in plastic wrap for protection against the cold, lucky their significant others visited the set; first it was Stanley Tong, then Liu Tao's Taiwanese businessman boyfriend Li Wei Wang Min also visited her, ...skip the rest.

    Skip.

    Dali has beautiful sceneries, just like a fairyland, Lin Hsinju says these past three months she feels like a goddess, uninfluenced by wordly matters, actually she is a bit plaintive. As a meat lover there's no meat locally for her to eat, even her MSN nick is changed to "No Meat Makes One Skinny."

    Lin Hsinju says that, Dali's vegetables are very fresh, a lot of varieties, but hardly any meat to eat. Some people raise chickens, but mostly they are dry, don't look too apetizing, she misses Taiwan's delicious food. "Dali Princess" will wrap in few days, she will first return to Shanghai, then head back to Taiwan to celebrate new year.

    Lin Hsinju heard how Liu Tao received Mama Li, it almost made her stumble, she says she actually tips her hat to Liu Tao, a former People's Liberation Army member, a very open person, but for love she's willing to learn how to become a good wife. Lin Hsinju said, her personality is energetic and lively, also have been spoiled, it's very hard to imagine that if one day she has to serve her future mother-in-law, how should she go about doing it.

    Lin Hsinju, Liu Tao Serve As Tour Guides Pointing Out Dali's Beautiful Sceneries
    YULE.SOHU.COM, 01/10/06

    Tourist' praise: Beautiful women, beautiful sceneries, too beautiful to behold
    Beauties Lin Hsinju, Liu Tao did not get to rest on New Year's Day; busy shooting "Dali Princess," greeting the new year at Cangshan Erhai, both said spending New Year's Day like this is pretty good.

    Sometimes during rest periods on the set, looking at the groups of tourists happily talking and laughing on cable cars and enjoying the beautiful Dali sceneries, Lin Hsinju said: "I could only look at them in a daze every time, fantasizing that me and my family are among that group of people! After all, the holidays make us think about our family!" "I hope next time when I come back to Dali, it's for a trip with my parents to enjoy the beautiful sceneries," said the filial Lin Hsinju.

    Dali's beautiful sceneries bring in many tourists, but when some tourists spotted beautiful girls Lin Hsinju and Liu in ancient costumes filming in this beautiful scenery, all of them looked like they have discovered a new land or something, they all felt very surprised, hastily raising their digital cameras, to catch this moment in time of this beautiful scenery w/ beautiful women. Although both are busy with filming, both of these beautiful girls are already utterly exhausted, but they still pose for pictures w/ fans; no wonder one tourist who didn't bring a camera, settling down to watch Liu Tao and Lin Hsinju filming the entire afternoon and still feel unsatisified, voiced his regret: "Beautiful women, beautiful sceneries, too beautiful to behold!"

    "Dali Princess" Longs For A Role of A Crime Boss's Wife to Challenge
    YULE.SOHU.COM, 01/09/06

    Currently shooting "Dali Princess" in Dali, this time Lin Hsinju as always plays a kind, honest, well-mannered rich girl, same as her previous roles that are loved by the audiences: Ziwei, Ruping, Manzhen.....etc., all have some things in common, but also have many unique places, for instance, in the series she dress up a a boy/guy, climbing the mountains and crossing the mountaineous rivers, and also have to lead the entire group of tea workers out of a difficult time.

    On talks about what roles will she play after "Dali Princess," Lin Hsinju said laughingly, although there are several scripts in discussion, but she favors modern dramas, because ancient series are really tiring, want to take a short break.

    On talks about having played so much virtuous and refined female characters, what type of roles does she like to play next, it was really unexpected, the frail-looking Hsinju unexpectedly said "boastfully": "I want to play a sister-in-law! That is like the crime boss type, like Karena Lam's "Mob Sister"!"

    Lin Hsinju Liu Tao In Charge of Fanning the Grill, The Price Celebrity Pay For Good Food
    sohu.com, 01/11/06

    Lin Hsinju and Liu Tao are currently shooting "Dali Princess" in Dali, although filming is tight, but both of these food lovers still can always find free time during filming to try out local Dali delicacy!

    Lin Hsinju and Liu Tao each have a box [or luggage] of snacks, both generously share with the crew each time. The snacks are limited, and when the snacks started to dwindle, Liu Tao already went into action, started to look for places with good food! Dali is known for its eight strange things, one of them is er kuai. That thing is a kind of cake/cookie made from rice, wrap it with fragrant Yunnan ham, then add any condiment according to your own taste, refreshing to the mouth, attractive flavor. Liu Tao discovered a small place selling er kuai at the foot of the mountain, as soon as tasted it, she immediately fell in love with this Yunnan delicacy, she immediately told her "eating buddy" Lin Hsinju the news. Hsinju, who has gotten tired of eating packaged snacks, started drooling while listening to it. During a rest period on the set, immediately had Liu Tao show her the way, hand in hand they went off to eat. As a result after one try Hsinju is immediately hooked by er kuai!

    Since then both regularly visit this little outdoor place to eat er kuai, Liu Tao also drag the rest of the crew there, this little er kuai booth's business all of a sudden took off, the vendor lady greets Liu Tao w/ a smile every time she sees her. After several visits, Hsinju and Liu Tao befriended the vendor lady, sometimes both of them would personally begin to make the er kuai. After watching the lady making the er kuai, Hsinju started learning how to make it and looks pretty good at it, and the impatient Liu Tao in order to start eating the delicacy sooner started faning the stove to give it more heat. If not for these two wearing ancient costumes, people who don't know would think this booth belongs to this pair of beautiful girls.

    Don't think that Hsinju looks like a chef/cook, in the beginning when she first arrived in Dali she had an adverse effect from the high altitude, frequently getting sudden nosebleeds. But lucky she's good in adapting, plus with her "eating sister" Liu Tao leading the way, she is quickly at ease, not only at ease, but also occasionally be a guest cook.

    Lin Hsinju Filming On the Snowy Mountain Despite Being Sick, Shooting Quiety Wrapped
    Sohu.com, 01/23/06

    Shooting lasting more than two months, "Dali Princess" finished shooting yesterday. The last scene took place on Yunnan Jade Dragon mountain b/w China and Myanmar/Burma. The elevation of Jade Dragon mountain is more than 400 meters, a lot of healthy people have an adverse effect from the high altitude. And previously during the shoot on Jizu Mountain, Lin Hsinju already went through a lot of suffering and caught a cold from the cold mountain wind. After decending from Jizu Mountain, had to rush nonstop to the snowy mountain by car throughout the night. When they ascended not even halfway to the the snowy mountain, Hsinju already had high altitude sickness, got a splitting headache, had difficulty breathing, the crew suggested that Hsinju temporarily rest at the hotel at the bottom of the mountain, but Hsinju thought that Chinese New Year is coming up and all of the crew is waiting to wrap up shooting and going home, she cannot delay the entire crew's time because of her, so she clenched her teeth and continued up the mountain. After shooting the last few scenes on the snowy mountain, Hsinju immediately felt completely weak, and most of the crew also was bothered by the high altitude, have no more strength left. Therefore although it was the very last scene, there wasn't the usual cheering and jumping for joy, no applause, not even smiles, Hsinju said "there was only the howling wind of the summit and dead-tired exhaustion. . . " with a bit of sadness, "Dali Princess" smoothly wrapped up shooting.

    Although the shooting was difficult, but the crew left with a beautiful memory of scenic Dali. Liu Tao is finding pleasure amist suffering by blogging, she was always taking pictures w/ her little camera or cellphone, and also joking nonstop, bringing a lot of laughter to the crew, Hsinju said w/ a smile that Liu Taochiu is everybody's happy fruit. And Liu Tao described herself and Hsinju as a pair "sisters who went through difficulties together." She recorded their shoot through writing and photos.
