Heidi, Girl of the Alps


These are somehow highly funny, as ‘live action’ duplicates of animated material on a show I don’t know the name of (there are other versions such as Evangelion and so on). I don’t know what’s going on exactly, but it’s not too hard to tell. There’s something about Asian Reality Television that’s so different from Australian…

I know for me personally I would never have been able to attempt something like this! In fact the thought of doing something ‘embarrassing’ has stopped me from doing many things in the past, such as dancing Gangnam Style because I didn’t want to perform it wrong (Ruben enjoyed breaking into the dance frequently much to my consternation), or speaking in Mandarin because I didn’t want to mispronounce the words. Even in the case of answering questions in class because I don’t want the embarrassment of getting it wrong.

Someday perhaps I can overcome this fear of being embarrassed…
