Count Your Lucky Stars Episode 5 Review

cyls41
We love a feisty female lead who dares to kiss her boss like it’s nothing. If the previous episode was a lot of fun, it’s even better news that this episode 5 just proved that a drama can still improve as the episodes go by.

Count Your Lucky Stars Episode 4 Review

cyls25This was a lot of fun and the most I’ve had yet! It actually focused on the characters trying to figure out why luck has either been on their side or not. Lu Xing Cheng is still not buying it though, but there’s one thing that he’s into: having Tong Xiaoyou by his side! This episode proved to me that this drama can still redeem itself from its subpar pilot.

Count Your Lucky Stars Episode 3 Review

cyls9The exchange of luck begins and the leads are becoming closer. Second male lead is starting to become a pest. A very good-looking pest at that…

Count Your Lucky Stars Episode 2 Review

cyls3Dao Ming Si, is that you? I’m happy to share that I saw a bit of improvement in the drama. The plot starts to fully form as early as this episode! Since I don’t have a lot of time on my hands anymore unlike the good ol’ times when I could do a play-by-play recap and review of Jerry Yan‘s My Best Ex-boyfriend and Shen Yue‘s Meteor Garden 2018, I will just always talk about the things I liked, did not like, and other thoughts per episode.

Count Your Lucky Stars Episode 1 Review

jy1HA! I caught you staring, didn’t I? In a world where everyone watches K-dramas and swoons over oppas, you may consider me a rare species who mostly watches Taiwanese and Chinese dramas and still be crazy over Jerry Yan. I may be one of his biggest fans out there, but it seems like I need to keep Counting My Lucky Stars (watch more episodes) before I could fully appreciate it. Continue reading

[Eng Translation] Chapter 13: Liang Sheng, Can We Not Be Laden With Grief 《凉生,我们可不可以不忧伤1》

If you must know, I started working on this chapter on 1 Jan 2019. Real life had been overwhelming but I foresee some free time in the near future where I can work on these translations. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make some decent progress, just like Bei Xiaowu.

Year-End Special: 2019 Drama Round-Up

2019 dramas

2019 is one interesting year in dramas. Many dramas came out to be successful and loved by everyone. Interestingly, it was a 2019 drama that brought me to a slump for the very first time in my dramaland years. Although you will see how it was the 2019 dramas that saved me from it too! Similar to my previous yearly round-ups, this contains my mini-reviews for each drama that I have completed this year. Luckily, I managed to watch some really good ones still! Don’t hesitate to read more if you want to!

Rest in Peace, Godfrey Gao

I am in shock. And this is not good shock. I haven’t been paying attention to entertainment news for the longest time ever and I definitely didn’t thought that the next time I came back to write a post here would be because of such an incident.

Godfrey Gao, 35, passed away after suffering from a cardiac arrest during the filming of a sports reality show, Catch Me.

(In case anyone is wondering why there are two similar posts, I do realise that Marian had already shared her tribute post earlier but I only saw that after deciding I would like to share my thoughts about this whole incident and also document my journey with Godfrey. I guess writing everything out does help with rationalising and accepting the fact.)
