Movie Monday: Happy Valentine’s Day!

  

My previous Movie Monday with an action theme didn’t really get a lot of feedback compared to my first one which dealt with first love. I’m going to assume that this post will get more feedbacks because of one thing: it’s all about ROMANCE!

Love really does make the world go round as proven by these five films which had romance as its central theme. Some were a hit and miss while some were definitely not to be missed.

Year-End Special: 2015 Drama Round-Up (Part 2)

I’m back to give you the 2nd part (and last!) 2015 Drama Round-Up! If you missed part 1 then I suggest you read it here for other drama reviews 😀

Still the same disclaimer:  These are brief (not really brief for some lol) reviews of all the dramas that I watched this year. So this doesn’t necessarily mean that the dramas were all made in 2015 as the title of this post may have suggested.

I have divided it into parts just like the last time: STORY IN A NUTSHELL (without spoilers, I promise!), POSITIVE (+) & NEGATIVE (-) things about it, and my OVERALL RATING.

Are we ready? 😀

Year-End Special: 2015 Drama Round-Up (Part 1)

I’ve been looking forward to writing this ever since I got the idea in my head. In this post, I’ll be writing brief reviews about all the dramas that I watched this year. So this doesn’t necessarily mean that the dramas were all made in 2015 as the title of this post may have suggested. This is part 1 out of 2 2015 Drama Round-ups that I’ll be writing.

My year in dramas is pretty colorful which I need to highlight: 1.) I watched a lot of C-dramas more than I intended to 2.) It was my first time to watch a drama while it’s currently airing 3.) I went beyond my habit of watching C/TW dramas by watching J-dramas (yay!) 4.) It also concerns going beyond my habit: watched a period/wuxia drama for the first time! 5.) I was able to watch some dramas which have been collecting dust in my never-ending plan-to-watch list already haha! and most importantly, 6.) I started blogging about dramas!

I’ll be dividing it into parts: STORY IN A NUTSHELL (without spoilers, I promise!), POSITIVE (+) & NEGATIVE (-) things about it, and my OVERALL RATING.

So are we ready? 😀

[NEWS] C-movie “Go Lala Go 2” with Taiwanese Triple Threat All Set for 11.11 Release

I’m pretty sure that the drama gods have been sleeping all these years when Vic Zhou and Ariel Lin’s respective careers in the Taiwanese dramaland have been skyrocketing. Well, it doesn’t matter now that the movie gods were surely awake and decided to spoil us fans with lots of love by putting these two together in a project. But wait, there’s more! These movie gods are just beyond amazing that they got Bolin Chen to be the second male lead of the movie. HELP!

I know you may have seen so many news articles about this movie already but I still wanted to write about it because I can no longer hold my excitement! It was originally slated to be released next year but the official Weibo account of the film actually announced that it’s going to be out this November 11. So how can a fangirl like me not be excited, right?

Update: Weibo Round-up (August 8, 2015)

Another Weibo round-up because why not? 😀 I tried to include the celebrities that I didn’t include during my last round-up while I couldn’t help but repeat some just because they’re so active in this wonderful microblogging site 😉

Everyone’s favorite Chinese supermodel is very happy with her bike! I’ve always thought that Liu Wen was my soulmate because we both don’t have enough life skills to survive (read: can’t swim, can’t bike, etc) but looks like my soulmate has already left me…. haha! This is all thanks to “We Are In Love” or China’s version of “We Got Married” which just recently concluded.
