That afternoon, when I talked to Ella about sex and the world, I found that she could put up a playful, very serious injustice for the disadvantaged, and when it came to the past and the future, she was free to express her true feelings and explain the journey.
everything was as natural as Ella's natural happiness, and we chatted and talked, and made me realize her different side. This is not the same to her, is the first time I met Ella.

When everything was in place, Ella told me: "I like the core concept of the Queer Film Festival as a Love link." Through the film form, let everyone see all love is the same, all kinds of love are very deep, all the original intention of love is very moving. 」

"My Love, marriage is blessed by the world, I am very lucky." But whether it is the comrades in the story, or the comrades around me, their love can not be recognized, do not get the same blessings as me. I feel very distressed, they are so kind-hearted, they love the original intention and all the same, but must overcome the difficulties to love. 」

Gay marriage can be legal I don't care, the point is that we must sincerely accept
she felt helpless for the world not to understand gay love. in the eyes of concentration, twinkle to help their firmness. Indeed, gay love will take a long time to get the recognition of the world, gay marriage is a seemingly endless journey.

"When my life is about to end, I will certainly want to be the one I love the most to help me deal with all the funeral." Because he knows best, what I want. "ella over me, looking at the husband Reissiang behind me.
Looking back, it turns out that Reissiang has been standing behind me, looking tenderly at Ella for an interview. This is the link of love, I silently thought. Happy love, although not necessarily marriage to prove, but, if everyone enjoys this choice, as a safe backing, will not be a more perfect state?
"Although I am rebellious, of course I hope that the relevant laws of multiple families can be passed." But pass is second, the important thing is that we should sincerely, and with the blessing to accept this matter, will achieve the most satisfactory state. 」
After 30 years of age, I have everything, but also to maintain a passion for life
for the love and career of Ella, perhaps life has reached a certain degree of success. But she was not complacent, " I was very fortunate at this age." I have a car, a house, a famous, happy marriage. I have everything, I can not help but start to wonder what else I have to pursue? "
Ella, talking about herself, looked thoughtfully: "The longing and enthusiasm that should be in life seems to be gradually watered down by these perfect." So "30 ah" inside only then sing: Life is only 30 ah, there is no white hair, dream how crumpled. 」
"That's one, I'm 30 years old, but I don't understand why I want to retire." "In the entertainment industry for 15 years, SHE development so far, are surrounded by love, by the majority favorite." But when Ella sees her friends around her age, a good life may be just beginning, or she is still struggling to make it, and is ashamed to feel like retiring.
Originally, this first was painted on the faint melancholy of "30 ah", is Ella to motivate themselves, at every stage of life to maintain enthusiasm.
"After 30 years of age, I hope I can see my real self and find a way to satisfy him." In work, emotion, life to achieve a balance of their own satisfaction. This is not won't be can do, so we need to live a good life, so that family, friends, lovers, with each other, to find the balance of life. 」

Well, what if we're 30 years old and can't find a balance? "Slowly groping Ah"ella language with easy to say, open-minded to smile. "
"It doesn't matter if you've been groping for a long time. Hard work for a long time, tired, do not want to contact with others, let yourself quiet. It is important that we never remain positive and be honest with our negative emotions. 」
15 years ago, 15 years later, I embraced the fate of all the arrangements
life cannot be completely smooth, and it is impossible to fail completely. The positive emotion comes, we can embrace it, the negative emotion comes, we also want to accept it sincerely.
Face the fate of not according to card card, Ella said to me: "You know, 15 years ago when she first started, we all three think it will be a singer." Did not expect to be red later, the whole is out of hand! "She gave an unbelievable expression, laughing," but I never resisted the fate to help me arrange everything, open arms to greet, when things are over, I will not live in vain. 」
Like "30 ah" inside sings: "Don't forget those original intention ah, boiling youthful blood, sing for their own." Life is only 30 ah, such as the pace of waltz, turn behind to continue. "Life is not long, say short, there are too many conditions we can not predict, setbacks, turn a body, or to face it bravely."
"With Hebe and Selina for such a long time, is there anything you want to say to them?" I asked, curiously.
"I just want to say thank you to them." "ella quick and short answer, I was unprepared. She smiled, then said: "I often feel that the three of us are together in the last life, I am the youngest, they brought this world, accept their help, and then grow together."

"Fate never told me that I would meet so intimate a work partner, even the same sister." "Before the debut, she even thought, anyway, do not make a singer even if, when an ordinary office workers do not matter." "But now, I want to thank myself for trying for 15 years without giving up, to learn so much from the two of them." 」
After the interview, when I was looking down on the clutter, Ella and her husband, Reissiang, had already begun to chat, and they laugh, as if they were in touch with each other, and they could understand each other's thoughts without much words. As a bystander, I can feel the faint but profound love.
I thanked Ella for her unreserved talk, and Ella said with a cheerful, "Thank you too!" "Her sparkling soul, not only to her natural kindness, but also from her to society, the world's fervent concern." Ella, in front of me, is not only a star of great attention, but also a hard life, trying to make the world a better Chen Jiahua with her tiny power.
On the way back, I listened to "30 ah", recall, Ella efforts to care about the society when the eyes flashing perseverance, talk about the heart of the word sincere, see her husband's gentle smile, diversity not only embodied in her in the various identity of showbiz, also bloom in the life of every moment.
I silently made a wish: I hope everyone in this world can hold close to him, set up a happy home, the dream into a soy sauce vinegar tea, the most unforgettable love.
