Rock Records in Love Eps 1 and 2 thoughts
Over the past year or so, I feel like I haven’t watched that many Taiwanese dramas. But I think I’m starting to get my head back in (so to speak) since there has been a few with decent production values and solid reviews. I wasn’t going to watch Rock Records in Love 滾石愛情故事 because it’s a […]
[C-Variety] We Are In Love (Season 2 Episode 2) not a recap!
I’ve been procrastinating I know, so I started this post a week late! Although I watched episode 2 live, I’ve been looking forward to rewatching some parts because well, my internet connect sucks at times and I missed the beginning lol. This week, I’m writing in the same order as the show itself. Fresh […]
[C-Variety] We Are In Love (Season 2 Episode 1) not a recap!
I guess you can say I never caught the variety show ‘bug’ – I don’t mind the game show ones but of course it needs a favourite to pull me in. I know the marketing guys are trying to sell this show as some sort of ‘Love Manual’ – for people to learn how to […]
[Reviews] Go Lala Go & Bad Guys Always Die
Feels like it’s been a long while since Bolin Chen appeared on this blog. I haven’t forgot about him! Since he’s been concentrating on movies I finally got the chance to catch up (at least a little) recently on 2 of them which were released last year. The much anticipated dream cast in Go Lala Go […]
[Nirvana in Fire] Scenes from the original screenplay translation – Part 1
In case you’re avoiding spoilers – this would’ve been in around episode 49, replacing this scene… Where Xia Jiang openly accused Mei Chang Su being Lin Su in front of the Emperor and Prince Jing which wasn’t in the original novel. (The draft of this post has been sitting there for about a month […]
Finally! The 2015 year end reviews post
As (I don’t know who) says, time flies even when you’re not having fun! 2015 had been a year of change for me, good and bad. It feels like it’s mostly bad right now, but I might be able to find the silver lining eventually. 😉 I guess the good part was the HK/TW trip […]
[Unboxing] Nirvana in Fire novels from Books.com.tw
Happy 2016 everyone!! I’m still working on that proper year end reviews post so just to take a break from it, I decided to write something I haven’t written before…. unboxing! I see people do this on beauty / tech blogs (I’m sure they do so in other types of blogs but that’s just what […]
Nirvana in Fire: An epic journey (plus all the feels)
I started writing this post the next day after I finished Nirvana in Fire aka Lang Ya Bang (瑯琊榜), the epic 54 episode Chinese drama starring Hu Ge, Liu Tao, Wang Kai plus many other fine actors (and actors/directors!) This is technically not a review, it’s more like – some thoughts on the reasons why […]
Meeting Xiu Jie Kai at SOB DEALL promo event [2015.11.01 @ Taipei]
I can’t believe it’s over a month already! I have been meaning to write stuff from my trip and just never got around to it. >_< Without further ado… I always read how people just bump into stars when they visit Hong Kong or Taiwan. That NEVER happens to me. (Actually, it happened this […]
