I’m currently watching the most recent TVB series “Beauty Knows No Pain” (女人最痛). 女人最痛 in Chinese literally means ‘Women’s Most Painful”.
The show premiered on July 26, 2010, and is slated to air for 20 episodes five nights a week. Hence, my couch is going to be on fire again.
How can I miss such series with such interesting cast? This modern series drama follows the lives of three women — Jackie, Miss Cash, and Bibi, portrayed by Maggie Cheung Ho-Yee, Michelle Yim, and Joyce Tang respectively.
This drama revolves around the cosmetics industry and how women struggle to win the hearts of clients, bosses as well as life partners.
女人最痛 — Coming back to this title, what hurts women most? What is the most painful thing on earth to women? I debated with my mum on this as we watched the 2nd episode of this series.
First thing that came into my mind was labour pain. The amount of pain women have to go through after 40 weeks of pregnancy at the delivery room is simply unbearable and unmeasurable. Mum definitely agreed with me undoubtedly but that is just a form of physical pain.
Mum said the most painful thing on earth to women will be 男人变心. It means when a man changes his heart for the other. I immediately felt the sharp pierce in my heart when she said that. 男人变心 is definitely a powerful phrase as I could feel the pain as my mum explained why it is painful. It is no doubt one of the greatest pain one have to go through.
I guess I have said enough for this blog entry. It is time for the readers to deliberate what is painful and what is not.
