YO.

Fun fact: I haven’t worn make-up in almost half a year. Make-up is GREAT, but it’s not really something I’m currently interested in.

  1. I’m too tired for that in the mornings.
  2. I have no time for that in the mornings.
  3. I’m also lazy.
  4. I feel confident enough to go out without make-up.
  5. It’s not good for my skin, and clear skin is definitely more priority.
  6. I’m not that great at applying make-up.

I DO almost always go out with some jewelry, though. I’m not a huge fan of rings or bracelets because they kind of bother me when I’m trying to do stuff. However, I absolutely love earrings and necklaces.

These products are related to nature lol. If I’m going to be brutally honest, the real quinoa mask from Innisfree smells so bad. I don’t think I would recommend it because of the smell. Well, it was given to me by someone so I will use it. xx

I am a fan of perfumes, but not strong scents because they irritate my nose. I’m happy with this one called Forest Breeze by Nature Republic. ^_^

Hahah, I took the picture I took at EXO’s concert to a store and printed it.


I’m currently obsessed with the song, Unravel. If I re-did My Top 10 Anime Openings post, this song would be up there somewhere near the top.

Superstar Spotlight: Bii 畢書盡

Many people know Bii from the Taiwanese drama, Bromance. I was a fan of his music (he is a singer!) before Bromance existed. Bii is one of my favourite singers and he is my number one idol.

About Bromance (2015):

It is currently on Netflix with English subtitles. Bii plays Wei Qing Yang, the male in the second couple. I recommend the drama because it has an interesting premise. The actor and actress in the main couple are famous for their previous dramas, such as Fated to Love You and Two Fathers. I really appreciate the close-ups of Bii’s beautiful face but watching his scenes make me sad at the same time because the girl is not me LOOL. I love that he sings the opening theme song, along with three other singers in his talent agency. One of the songs I really like is sang by two people from his talent agency. His solo songs play during his scenes, as well as other romantic scenes.

My story on how I fell in love:

My friend showed me Bii’s music video for I know. I was busy when my friend showed me so I just listened to the song without watching the video. I thought Bii’s voice was really nice… I decided to watch the video and he was so good looking!

A lot of people say that Bii looks like Luhan, one of China’s most popular stars. Luhan is a former member of EXO. Bii is humble and said that Luhan looks prettier than him. ^^

Then I decided to Google him (LOL this is what I do…). I learned that Bii is half Korean and half Taiwanese, but grew up in Korea. He was scouted by SM Talent when he was a teen in Korea but didn’t go for it. I thought it was really impressive that he became fluent in Chinese because he learned the language after he came to Taiwan.  He talks and sings mostly in Chinese, but he does sing some Korean songs.

After that, I decided to watch videos of him on YouTube. He was so kind to his fan and I began to tear up… I was at school at the time and I was feeling unhappy with myself. After watching that one video I decided I wanted to change myself to be a better person who would help other people and become more true to myself. I wanted to be someone I would like…

After that, I started reading his Facebook status updates. (LOL) He wrote in Chinese and it was tough to understand them at first. I live in Canada and although I am a fluent speaker, my reading skills were lacking. Google Translate helped, and gradually I was able to understand more words. ^^ The reason I was working this hard was because his statuses were unlike other celebrities’ statuses.

I don’t follow him as much as I used to, but I remember he wrote statuses for his fans. He would tell us to dress warm so that we would not get sick, and to drink soup because it was cold out. He told us to sleep early so that we have more energy the next day. Bii was so caring and I was really envious of the many girls who had photos of them hugging him, and fans who watched him perform at his concerts.

Several months after I started liking him, I found out that he sang the Korean version of one of my favourite songs, Dui Wang. Dui Wang is the ending song of my favourite Taiwanese drama, My Lucky Star (2007).

Well, I am turning 21 this year and I am not exactly the same person I was a few years ago. I’m not that obsessed with celebrities anymore but Bii is still one of my favourite singers. ^^

My Top 10 Anime Openings

These are my 10 favourite anime opening songs. I’m not saying that these are “the” best anime songs of all time, but my current personal favourites.

10. Fruits Basket Opening – For Fruits Basket by Ritsuko Okazaki

Every time I listen to this song, I get really nostalgic because I watched Fruits Basket when I was in primary school. The anime is very colourful and sweet. The manga is more complete and “darker” in my opinion. I recommend you finish the manga if you haven’t already.

9. Sailor Moon Opening (1-4) – Moonlight Densetsu by DALI 

8. Attack on Titan Opening 1 – Guren no Yumiya by Linked Horizon

7. One Piece Opening 10 – We Are! by TVXQ

One Piece is my number one favourite anime. It is the best selling manga series in the world and currently has over 700 episodes. Although it is really long and still ongoing, I highly recommend this series for everyone. It’s great for people of all ages. I may be 20 years old, but I am just in love with this show. I learned a lot from One Piece, including the meaning of friendships. It helped me realize that I was in toxic friendships in the past and that things can always be better. The show made me feel every emotion possible, and it brought back my laughter.

6. One Piece Opening 3 – Hikare E by The Babystars

5. Durarara!! Opening 1 – Uragiri No Yuuyake by Theatre Brook

I love just about every opening and ending song in Durarara. I enjoyed the first season more than the second. I thought the second season introduced too many characters too quickly.

4. Naruto Shippuden Opening 3 – Blue Bird by Ikimono-gakari

Naruto and Naruto Shippuden have several opening songs I like. For Shippuden, I turned to the manga because I hated the filler episodes (except the one-episode funny ones). I can’t get into Boruto, the new series about Naruto’s kids, because I don’t like the art style. I also feel that a lot of characters are out of character.

3. Death Note Opening 1 – The World by Nightmare

Death Note is one of my favourite anime and I fell in love with it the instant I laid my eyes on the series. I was around eleven years old and I remember my classmates telling me that it was too scary. Lol. There’s a Netflix film adaptation of Death Note. While I won’t judge the film too much without watching it first, Death Note remains a popular series after all these years.

2. Naruto Shippuden Opening 16 – Silhouette by KANA-BOON

1. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Opening 1 – Again by Yui

If you only listen to one song in this post, it should be this one. Maybe.

How to Keep Your Pins From Falling Out

So you got some pins. Now what??

IMG_20170730_224417_318

Before you pin them to your bags or clothes, here’s a tip. Take a plastic earring stud back and put it on the back like so. I’ve lost all my pins from high school because I didn’t do this. Then I did this to my Lelouch (from Code Geass) pin and I still have it a year later.

If you don’t have the stud backs, I saw them at my local dollar store. No need to buy actual earrings hahaha.

20170730_220051

If you’re interested in what my new pins are…

  • Rin and Len Kagamine
  • Luka Megurine (see clip below)
  • Karamatsu (Osomatsu-kun)
  • Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan)
  • Sailor Moon

Superstar Spotlight: Kwang-ho Hong

Kwang-ho Hong is one of my favourite singers. He is a musical theatre actor from South Korea. Some of his most famous works include Jekyll & Hyde, The Phantom of the Opera, Notre-Dame de Paris, Miss Saigon, and Death Note. He has starred in numerous other musicals.

A couple of years ago, I was going through a rough time and felt hatred towards all men. I came across a video of Kwang-ho Hong singing “All I Ask of You” from my favourite musical, The Phantom of the Opera (2009). I felt so moved… and decided to open my heart. I think I cried.

I started to search him online and found out that he first played Raoul in POTO. A year later, he played Erik, the Phantom. Kwang-ho Hong was one of the youngest Phantoms in the world!

I also found out that he played Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in Jekyll & Hyde. It’s one of my favourite books and “This is the Moment” is one of my favourite songs. He sings it so well. He also played Quasimodo in Notre-Dame de Paris, which is a story I like as well.

As if things were not enough, he also acted as Light Yagami from one of my favourite anime, Death Note (2015). I felt that Kwang-ho Hong and I are super alike in terms of his roles and my interests. I cannot think of any other person who is better suited to play Light.

Kwang-ho Hong is most famous for playing Thuy in Miss Saigon (2014). He went to London and sang in English for West End theatre! West End theatre is huge in the musical theatre industry.

It’s my dream to watch Kwang-ho Hong perform live in a musical. Although I do not understand Korean, I can still appreciate the music. The fact that I do not understand Korean is not too important because I can still feel the emotion he pours into his music.

I hope by doing this post, I can bring more attention to Kwang-ho Hong because he made an impact in my life. He is truly talented at performing live and his accomplishments are impressive. ❤

Third wheel in a fictional relationship

1495676191776s_mh1495677485076.jpg

Idk why, but when I have a hood on my head I feel safe. LOL.

Hoodies are good because they have pockets (usually). Gotta stuff phone and snacks in there.

Listening to: 香香 – 就算沒有如果 

 

I’ve been obsessing over the Chinese drama 三生三世十里桃花/Eternal Love. I’m the third wheel in the DH x FJ pairing.
