I’m not sure if you remember my post on My Top 6 Taiwanese dramas, but I would like to add a drama to that list! At number three, it’s Autumn’s Concerto (2009). It’s one of the most popular Taiwanese dramas.

This drama just gets sadder and sadder. I continue it because I know it has a happy ending but you need a tissue box ready. One tissue box might not be enough! It’s a love story and the events that happen to the couple are unfortunate but they are meant to be together. Fair warning: I did not like the male protagonist at all in the first episode but he becomes a really good person pretty soon.

This drama reminds me why I love Taiwanese dramas so much. I’m hesitant about writing a synopsis because I really don’t know how much to spoil. It gets progressively sadder so it feels like everything is a spoiler to me.

Also I’m bummed that I can’t find my Death Note books. I wanted to write a blog post on Death Note and use the books as references but I guess that’s not happening until I find them… IF I ever find them. TT_TT

Thoughts and food.

I’m starting to read Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare and the famous line, “Et tu, Brute?” has me shaken.

The theme of betrayal happens all the time in literature and in anime too. Take the song Vogel im Käfig from Attack on Titan, for example. When I listen to the song, I feel anger, betrayal, sadness, disbelief and acceptance. The song plays during my favourite scene in the anime, the betrayal.

Quotes pop up on the loading screen of a game I’m playing. This quote in particular was very interesting. It was cool seeing a quote from a novel I own.

“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.” – George Orwell, 1984

 

Don’t worry, my life is mundane. Every time I write about a serious topic like this, there are always a couple of people who ask me if I’m okay, or if there’s anything wrong. I do appreciate the concern, but you have to understand that I think a lot. I’m not blindly consuming content and not thinking about it afterwards! No, I think about the things I read and watch.

P.S. I’m learning how to skateboard. Balancing is not an issue but I need to practice turning.

Vancity Eats (Part 6)

I write up food blog posts three times a year: after the first term of school, after the second term of school, and after the summer.

Term two of school recently ended so here is part six! You can view part five here. That post has all the links to the earlier Vancity Eats posts. Once again, these are some of the foods I’ve eaten with my crew.

Okay, enough chit-chat LOL. Time to make some of you guys hungry. >:)

Ghoul

I went to a cafe called Fondway Cafe in Burnaby, BC and the food was good! I got these waffles. It was a little pricey but the cafe was pretty.

As I took this photo, I felt like Mitsuha in Taki’s body from Kimi no Na Wa/Your Name, hahaha.

The cool thing about being a cosplayer and/or anime fan is that you probably have anime stuff in your room! This is Kaneki’s mask from Tokyo Ghoul. I also have One Piece stuff, such as posters, plush of Chopper Man, Luffy’s straw hat, and a few other One Piece things. Of course I have a lot more anime things (especially since I cosplay) but maybe I will talk about them in a different blog post…

Singer 2018 is finished! Click here to know what I’m talking about. Unfortunately Hua Chenyu did not win first place but I am happy with the results. Jessie J won and I think she deserves it! Hua Hua won second place and that’s a huge achievement.

I also finally bought the novel, Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo. I wrote in an older post that I wanted to read it but the number of pages scared me. My plans for the summer break are to look for a part-time job, cosplay, and stay at home. I want to read my novel, watch One Piece, play video games, eat ice cream at home, and sleep. I don’t have any other requirements. My wish is to live life simply and worry-free. ^^
