And in top news today:
- Since I’ve been away, I’ve watch 3 dramas and have to finish the last episode of another (it’s 2 hours!)
- I’ve developed a seriously deep, deep love for Show Luo. Seriously, when that man dances, sings, acts or does anything he makes me go gaga.
- I have a yearning to learn Mandarin. I can now say basic phrases such as “Hello” “Thank you” and “Goodnight”. Oh, and I can also count to ten in Mandarin – with the hand gestures (谢谢你, YT!)
- I’ve downloaded a whole bunch of OSTs – and it’s the only music I’ll listen to right now. No joke. Asian music speaks to me – despite me having a low understanding of what they’re singing about. I’m grateful for the MVs that have English subtitles.
- I ordered Show Luo’s newest album, Luo Sheng Men, from YesAsia. ABSOLUTELY FREAKING IN LOVE WITH THE THING. The box has a cover which you can peel off – hence, two different album covers. There’s a little book inside that I don’t understand because it’s all written in Chinese, however, the pictures are amazing! Seriously, my heart exploded into a million, tiny pieces when are saw them. He’s so shuài (handsome). 😉 Pictures here.
- I’VE MISSED YOU GUYS SO MUCH!
Exams are over; summer has officially started. And yet, I’m still going to have this anxious feeling in my stomach until August 19th arrives and I receive my results. Worst-case scenario, my grades are sh*t and I don’t get into Coventry – and my birthday will be so shit. Why must I find out my results so near to my birthday? It’s so unfair.
Anyway, I’m hoping I don’t get to worst-case scenario mode. You’re probably wondering, “How the hell did you watch three dramas when you said you’d be studying for your upcoming exams and stuff?” You’d be surprised! Basically, I’d do my revision and then, as a reward, I’d watch an episode before I go to bed and on the days that my lessons start late I’d watch an episode in the morning. Worked very well, actually.
How have you all been? I have actually missed blogging so much – as you can see I had quite a lot to tell you even though it mostly comprises of my fangirl-ness being full blast at the moment.
Since I decided to go hiatus on this blog my life has been SO busy. What with hectically trying to finish my coursework to doing some last minute revision. I tell you now, I’m so glad to be rid of the coursework. I hate coursework with a passion – it’s the freaking bane of my existence. I have no idea how I managed to pull it off but I did. I’m not too happy with my English coursework though, that’s for one but I’m mildly satisfied with my Media. Well, the practical production part anyway. I had to make a cover and contents page for a new sci-fi magazine; The contents page was kind of rushed because I didn’t have much time, however it came out better than I anticipated. View the front cover here and the contents page here.
So here’s the lowdown~ I think I did slightly alright on my first Classics paper about architecture and sculpture, etc. Slightly more confident for my second Classics paper on the Aeneid and the Iliad. I’m quietly confident on my Media exam, though. I hate the fact that everyone thinks that the subject is easy – it bloody well is not! You have know about theories, audience/hyperdermic needle/two-step flow (which I thought was a dance step, haha) and then you also have to know about Marxism, post-colonialism, post-modernism, etc. People think that all you have to do is watch films and look at YouTube videos. Che! They should take the damn subject first before they even say anything about it! Hmph. My English exam… I don’t know how I feel about it. I think I did well because when I was in the exam a lot of things suddenly came to me and I was writing for my life in that hall but again, I felt that exam was a bit weird… Hmm, anyway~ Exams are all over now. What can I do but wait?
I’m back a day early from my hiatus because I got a bit excited with the fact that I NOW HAVE NO MORE EXAMS! Yaay *dance* Basically, this next month I will be lounging around watching the filipino version of My Girl again (because I didn’t get to finish it last time due to insufficient subbed episodes D<) and listening to F.T Island~ My new favourite band. Seriously, these guys are hot stuff. I am totally in love with Hongki. Hummahumma~ He’s so cute as Jeremy in YB as well (refer to part after bolded caps for more info.) Ah, I’ve also acquired a new stuffed toy which I ordered from Malaysia. It’s the same toy that Jiro Wang has in the drama ToGetHer or Superstar Express (which I still need to finish watching) and his name is Mumu. I FREAKING LOVE HIM. Seriously. How can you not love this cute thing? :3
ignore me~ and the bow that i tried to create in my hair. it looks totally obscure
I am actually so excited to be back to the blogosphere! Hence why this post is so damn long, don’t worry~ You don’t have to trek all the way through it 🙂 But miss na miss kita and I soooooo glad I’m back ^-^
[SKIP THIS BIT IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO HEAR ANYTHING ABOUT DRAMAS/FILMS/BLAH BECAUSE I DO TEND TO GO ON A BIT…]
The three dramas I watched were, Hi My Sweetheart (thank you to Pauline for suggesting this drama to me!), Corner With Love & You’re Beautiful. Hi My Sweetheart & You’re Beautiful are top on my favourite dramas of all time.
Corner With Love not so much – I really only watched it because Show Luo was in it but it was an okay drama. Not sure how I feel about the ending, but Da S sure is pretty. I would gladly petition for a second series of CWL just so I can see more of Show.
HMS made me cry like a little baby. The tears would not stop flowing. But more importantly, it made me laugh SO much. Seriously, from Da Lung’s mushroom haircut and the cute little skip/walk thing he did, I was literally like, “肏~ This drama is SO good.” His underbite got me, every time that Da Lung would talk it would make me want to put my bottom jaw out and just pout for no reason. And the Pink Panther dance – oh good Lord, I’m seriously contemplating learning that dance. Yes, it is that great. Check it out for yourself.
Rainie Yang, I believe, is one of the best Asian actresses of this generation. When I see her crying it seriously made me want to cry too, and it was like I felt her character’s pain despite having not gone through any of what she had. HMS is seriously brilliant and if you are a fan of watching dramas, then definitely put this at number 1 of your list to watch. Slightly disappointed that Hsueh Hai wasn’t present in the end but eh, we can’t all have it can we? Lin Da Lung is adorable though. HMS totally made me fall in love with Show Luo and I search YT all the time for any new clips of him – he’s also the host of Yu Le Bai Fen Bai (100% Entertainment) alongside Xiao Gui (who was also in CWL!). Jesus, those two are freaking hilarious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8yZJwlsiik&feature=related
I firmly believe that Rainie and Show should date in real life (Though, he should be actually dating me *cough*). Then again, I love Show Luo and Hu Du Jie Jie together (who sometimes hosts YLBFB when either Show or Xiao Gui are away) because they are just super cute. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1j9sxM5xpk8 BAY-BE! CAN YOU BELIEVE SHOW IS 30?! He looks like he’s in his 20s. Sigh, 13 years age difference – boo. Okay, enough – I’ve been writing too much about this.
You’re Beautiful – HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA~ No, seriously. That drama is HILARIOUS. The amount of parodies in there; from Manager Ma’s “Sorry Sorry” by SuJu to Jeremy’s Lee Junki CF parody – I think I must have died from laughter several hundred times. Also, I keep hearing Miley Cyrus and Sean Kingston playing in the background whenever they went to a restaurant or nightclub. Oh, and Lee Hong Ki (who plays Jeremy) is seriously the cutest EVER. EVER. He just makes me want to hug him all day long! Especially when he’s with his dog, Jolie (named after Angelina Jolie which I find hilarious!). Jang Geun-suk is super, super adorable as Hwang Tae Kyung – when he does that pouty thing and his lips move around, aiyoo. So cute. And I am certain that he and Park Shin-hye (who plays Go Mi Nam) have something going on – proof? http://video.yahoo.com/watch/6596404/17125261 Say no more. Shin Woo kind of annoyed me in the beginning of the drama – especially the scene where he bought Go Mi Nam shoes EVEN though she obviously couldn’t wear them because she was still pretending to be her a boy. Also, Uee, who played Yoo He Yi, is so much nicer IRL than she is in the drama – in the drama she was some round-faced, big-eyed diva. Pfft. This drama definitely needs a second series. Why? BECAUSE HOW CAN YOU MAKE GO MI NAM GO TO AFRICA AND LEAVE TAE KYUNG ALL BY HIMSELF AND HE MAY HAVE TO FEND OFF BITCHES LIKE YOO HE YI WHO IS TRYING TO GET WITH HIM?! [end rant] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmBO8LK2IwI Bi Bi noodles, anyone? 아이 시려워~!
I still have to finish ToGetHer – just the last episode to go, which is about two hours I think – unless I am mistaken.
On another note – I totally love the film Baby & I. Masoon Moon is the cutest baby EVER, EVER, EVER. And on a plus, Jan Geun-suk is in it too!
