I didn’t plan on watching Runaway at first, thinking it couldn’t possibly be that good if the ratings are going downhill every week, and the earlier hype put me off a little.  I’ve only ever seen one other Rain drama (Full House, in case you’re wondering which one) and despite its popularity and ability to keep me interested enough to carry on watching to the end it didn’t wow me away.

Then a lull came in my drama watching schedule and I thought to myself why not, it would make a change to watch an action drama.

One of my all time favourite Anita Mui songs from the Hong Kong film A better tomorrow III.

Time has made me forget what the A better tomorrow trilogy was all about and though I remember this song I didn’t remember it being from a particular film until recently.

I don’t think I would ever forget Anita Mui, the defiant singer, the first Chinese female singer to explore outside the boundaries of ‘acceptable’ Cantopop, ignoring the authorities, being compared to Madonna (although I would heavily debate this comparison) and whose many songs I have fond memories of screeching together with my younger sisters as we grew up.
