Here are my favourite posts of 2020.
I wrote this review after I watched it in the theatres. I think Weathering With You was the last movie I watched with friends, so I’m really glad I went that day.
I went to Bowen Island with my friends for healing because I was super stressed at the time. I don’t think any of us really expected a pandemic to happen back then, so I feel lucky that I was able to spend quality time with my friends.
In this post, I wrote about the good things that happened to me during quarantine. I found it helpful to look at the good moments.
Part 2 here.
This is one of my best posts in terms of views. I was super passionate about this Chinese survival show.
I had a ton of fun collaborating with Elle. It was super cool chatting with her about something we both love: The Untamed. & I think the post reflects that.

Rather than the actual content, I want to highlight the post’s comment section. There are wonderful conversations and I was happy that so many of you guys engaged with the post. Thank you.
This is a post I wrote in response to Moya’s #Controversed Week 4 prompts on managing blogging criticism.
This is a personal post I wrote about my motivations for blogging, and I want to share it again.
Many people told me that they were able to relate my post. Reflection is good, especially for 2020.
Anime X-Change was an event hosted by Jon Spencer Reviews. I was recommended Time of Eve; here’s my review.

A question for bloggers: Do you ever feel like some of your posts fade into irrelevancy as you keep putting out new posts? That they get buried deep in the archives? I guess this question applies for bloggers that frequently post.
I have over 550 posts. Maybe you can think of a few of my posts on the top of your head, but I’m guessing they’re the more recent ones. I won’t blog any less because of this, though.
Do you agree? Let me know your thoughts.
The hydrangeas have not fully bloomed but I thought I would take photos to mark the first day of summer (yesterday). Click here to see the hydrangea photos I look last year.

August 2019 – Richmond Sunflower Festival
February 2020 – Bowen Island trip
I went to Bowen Island for a couple of days with two friends. It’s really close to Vancouver.
I felt stressed these past weeks and wanted a break from city life. Prior to the trip, I had not been on an overnight trip in several years and did not hike in a really long time. I am a homebody but it was relaxing and refreshing to be in nature. I felt peaceful.
I think that when you’re on the island, you are on an “island timezone.” What I mean by this is that there’s no rush and there’s not much need to check your phone. I wonder why I check my phone a lot more in the city- perhaps because a lot of people have the ‘need to be productive’ mindset?

I would say that the highlight of the trip was stargazing. There is only one street light on the island. I had never seen so many stars before. They looked so big and I could see them clearly.
The lighthouse and volcanic rocks.
I got my friends to watch The Untamed with me after our hikes. They became really invested in it, which was great. Hehehe.
Here are my favourite posts of 2019. I’m thinking of writing a post for each year but we shall see.
Deleting my Twitter account was a huge change for me. I do miss my friends but it was not a good place for me (due to reasons outlined in the post).
I had fun writing episodic mini reviews.
These are the first shots I took with my DSLR. I love hydrangeas.
My friends and I went to a sunflower festival and we had fun taking pictures. I like the wildflower photos the most.
I borrowed a cosplay from a fellow Anime Club exec. These photos are from a cos test the day before Clubs day at the university.
This was my first time participating in Inktober. It pushed me to draw a lot.
A lot of you guys liked my photos of the steam clock in Vancouver. Some of you thought it was a screenshot from an anime, which I thought was quite amusing.
I went to a lake with pretty lights.
