I Won a Book Giveaway!

I feel really lucky sometimes because I won another giveaway, and it’s a great one! In my life I’ve won four giveaways but I used to find many four leaf clovers so maybe that has something to do with it. I actually don’t think there’s a correlation LOL.

The giveaway I won this time was hosted by our fellow blogger friend, Neha, who runs Biblio Nyan, a blog on books, anime, self-care tips, and more. I won their 500 follower giveaway and got a $30 gift card to buy any books of my choosing from Book Depository or Amazon. I got FIVE books from Book Depository!

1. Edogawa Rampo’s Japanese Tales of Mystery and Imagination

Jon recommended this book to me a while back so I’m happy that I finally own it! I read one of the short stories called The Human Chair, and it was honestly the most interesting story I’ve read in my life. I might blog about it one day, and write about Junji Ito’s version of it as well.

2. Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination 

I’ve been borrowing my friend’s Poe book for months so I’m happy that I finally own my own copy.

3. Monkey by Wu Cheng’en

This book is also known as Journey to the West and is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. This story was published in the 16th century and many anime, including Dragon Ball, were loosely based on this story. Some of the earliest Japanese animation were inspired by the Chinese animation of Journey to the West.

4. Desire by Haruki Murakami 

Haruki Murakami is one of my favourite authors. I’ve read a number of his books. This is a collection of his short stories.

5. Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination

I’m giving this one to a friend.

I’m honestly surprised by how many books I got. When I found out that I won, I thought that I would get two books so this really exceeded my expectations. The books were delivered in a timely manner and I’m really happy with everything. Thank you so much Neha for everything. ❤

Bii Your Light + Appreciation Shout-Outs

I just found out that Bii has his own filter in the beauty app, Meitu. Be Your Light is a newer song of his. The filter is punny because Bii and Be sound the same. I dedicated a blog post to him last year. You can read about him HERE.

This is way overdue but thank you Cammy for watching a drama I reviewed and recommended! It’s the Boys Love Taiwanese drama, HIStory 2: Boundary Crossing. Cammy told me that she gave it a 5/5 rating!

Also check out Neha’s first impressions post on Cunning Single Lady. I recommended this Korean drama in an earlier blog post of mine and I feel so happy whenever people take the time to listen to my recommendation and watch the show!

I guess I don’t have much to say in this post, except for the words… thank you. Some of you guys have stuck with me through thick and thin and it means a lot to me. I love you~

I feel quite content right now. I’m happy. ^^

Also, message me on Twitter if you haven’t already~

Thank you everyone for your support once again

For those of you wondering why I have not been blogging recently, it’s because I was experiencing issues with my physical health. I am starting to feel a little better.

I went bowling yesterday. I think bowling is meaningful. It’s fun and if you are ever frustrated, I think bowling helps clear your mind. I broke a finger nail but I’ll have them shorter next time haha.

Chinese etiquette

my friend’s mom visited us (my friend goes to the same school as me) and she gave us a gift. this tea is from when she went to China.

apparently when a Chinese family invites a guest over for dinner, it is common for the guest to bring a gift as a way of saying thank you.
