Shocker: Hamasaki Ayumi Deaf in Left Ear

Filed under: Japan,Jpop,News — Dennis @ 4:40 pm


Jpop diva Hamasaki Ayumi, 29, has revealed on her official fansite that she has completely lost hearing in her left ear caused by a problem back in 2000. Doctors had already told her last year that it was too late for surgical treatment. Ayumi had also expressed that she will continue singing as long as she can hear with her right ear.

More from the article here.

I hope Ayu will continue to go on strongly as before as I’m sure all her fans will continue to support her as always.

Seems that it really is. According to the report, the black market is selling it for S$649. Inside the disc is 10 minutes worth of love-making, bundled with other clips such as the one with an attitude at a movie premiere. As usual, the people inside the video can’t be identified, only just that the bodies look similar to her and her ex-boyfriend.

Sawajiri is known for her leading roles in the hit drama serials “One Litre of Tears” and “Taiyou no Uta”.

Mickey For Malaysia? 

 Saw this on the news just now. Talks are on the way for a Malaysia Disneyland to be situated in the Iskandar Development Region in Johor. If it goes through, we can expect a Disneyland larger than Hongkong’s and about the size of Tokyo Disneyland in the year 2013, the very first in Southeast Asia. There have been rumours since last year but the news report today seem to solidify the rumours.

Heroes Actress Hayden Panettiere Fought To Save Dolphins From Certain Death

I have seen this piece of news regarding the slaughtering of dolphins. But now then I realised that Hayden Panettiere was one of the surfers who tried to stop the Japanese fishermen from killing the poor dolphins.

 Hayden being interviewed after the confrontation:

Hayden and her surfing buddies confronting the fishermen, they tried to block the fishermen with their surfboards:

And lastly, the poor dolphins fighting to stay alive:

Dolphin 3

It’s known that dolphin fishing is the livelihood of the Japanese fishermen, but I feel something has to be done about it. Instead of being repentant, the fishermen take on a hostile attitude towards the media, which kinda makes any form of resolve even harder.
