Victoria’s Secret Angel Ming Xi Falls On Runway
Chinese Victoria’s Secret Angel Ming Xi, aka Xi Mengyao 奚梦瑶, fell during Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2017 in Shanghai, China. The show has finally come to Asia this year, and the unfortunate incident just happened two days ago. After the stumble (video below), Ming Xi recovered gracefully and kept her smile on the whole time. This is reportedly the biggest mistake in Victoria’s Secret runway history. The first fashion show was held in New York in August 1995. Ming Xi apologized for “letting her country down” through her Weibo.

I decided to go with a different server setup to learn something new, and used Ubuntu with Apache, whereas before I’d used Debian and Nginx to run WordPress, and ran into some problems setting up object cache for the site amongst other things, since I didn’t want to just use WordPress plugins for it. I regret this, as if I’d set up the server with what I know, it would have been up a week ago. Anyway, there was no point pointing the domain to the new server until we had some posts set up, so those are the main […] Read more!
