Saturday Symphony #

Jude is the host of Saturday Symphony


The far East includes;

– Russian Siberia

– Mongolia

– Taiwan

– China


– North and South Korea

– Hong Kong

This week share something themed from this part of the world.
It can come from real life experiences, a favourite story, history, myths, books and legends.

The famous and infamous Samurai of the East


My selection for this week is Mulan, a live-action remake of the movie with the same name released in 1998

I just saw this movie with my grandson. Though it did not do full justice to the hype, it was an impressive movie in my opinion. The theme of the movie revolves around the ideal of being true to oneself.

I wouldn’t want to spoil the fun of anyone intending to watch this movie. I have written a poem on the character Mulan, as I saw her!

Brave and fearless

Impulsive and bold

She is loyal to a fault

And truthful to boot

Stepping in to save her

Father, her family and country

She achieves her goals just by her grit

She is the legend she is the hero

  1. Well done! She IS a hero!

    I liked the animated Mulan. I haven’t watched any of the “live action” remakes. It bothers me for some reason… all these remakes. Like, come up with an original idea! Quit cashing in on the same story, over and over. Just a “thing” with me I guess🤷🏼‍♀️

  2. I think this version of the movie is the best one yet Sadje. I loved that they used Asian actors for an Asian story. And the story felt new yet classic.
    I think it is nice to keep remaking some classic tales to attract modern young audiences because the lessons are timeless and they bridge the generational gaps. As long as it’s done well.
    I argued against the lion king remake but was happy to re-enjoy it with the nieces and nephews.
    Great post Sadje. 🤗🤗🙏🏾🧡
