“Something” and “Something” are going to be released early next year…yes, you read that title right

This isn't as cool as it seems, since others would probably enjoy the next picture more...

I AM BACK FROM THE DEAD! Did you miss me? Of course you all did hahahahaha! Boy, my fingers have never felt happier than today EVER in my whole life!

For those of you who were wondering where I ran off to…I got my laptop confiscated, and I had it locked away until Christmas ended. Reasons for the confiscation will not be explained much further but what I’ve learnt is that from now on, any computer/laptop/electronic device that exists which allows you to stay up all night without much logic thought is to be banned and destroyed from your life.

Yes, that is what happened and I am…absolutely ashamed that it did.

Anyway, moving on! What I wanted to do was return to the blogging world gradually by posting something light-hearted, such as this post. I’m currently working on something big which hopefully can be released by tomorrow (New Year’s Eve, EEEPPPP!) and if not well…darn. I won’t say much more about it, apart from the fact that it will be a two-part post (if that doesn’t drop any hints yet!) so stay tuned for that!

Okay okay, onto the ambiguous title (was it really though??)

The Heirs Episode 20 (END) Recap: A rollercoaster ride that came to a finish; some got off safely while others got dumped and fell off near the end…

1450230_623089621087505_495380378_n

And so, “The Heirs” has finally come to a close, after taking all of us on a ride that we wish to remember some, but also forget some. It has been one heck of a ride – from happy to sad moments, from angry to frustrating-moments-where-could-even-throw-your-computer-away. But no matter what has happened over the past 10 weeks, it is not hard to say that we will dearly miss the whole cast and story. And if these characters were real people in our lives, we would want to dearly wish them all the best in their endeavours.

On a side note, I’m sorry that this recap is being posted up so late; had to go to work earlier than usual therefore the post had to be postponed.

Alright, let’s finally finish this! Continue reading

The Heirs Episode 19 Recap: It was a rollercoaster all right, but why did it seem not as scary as I expected it to be??

Definitely my most favourite scene out of the whole episode! <3

Today’s episode was what everyone was probably not what everyone hoped for, but it was exactly what was expected of the episode – an episode that just gave-out literally at the last minute.

This episode had its moments, as in it showed what we wanted to see (cute, happy moments between the main leads) but in all honesty, considering this is the penultimate episode already, plot-wise there should have been more.

Let’s do this!

The Heirs Episode 18 Recap: Ahhh sooo you rip my heart into pieces, and then use cheap glue to mend it back together…sadly, it fell apart again too quickly writers, too quickly

Happy Eun Sang and Kim Tan at last...

Happy Eun Sang and Kim Tan at last…

Today will be a much calmer look on things (and for the better too), as redemption is a key aspect in today’s/yesterday’s episode of “The Heirs”.

Like yesterday’s entry, it won’t be a full-out recap like most bloggers do, but rather a post to discuss about what I think are the highlights of the episode.

Let’s begin, shall we?

The Heirs Episode 17 Recap: God, I will literally make a list, and plan to fly to Korea in order to just personally strangle a couple of people…ARGHHH!!

This has been going on for WAY TOO LONG! I cannot hold off another reaction/recap post just because I didn’t want to vent my feelings out.

This cannot go on Kim Tan, and it mustn’t! Otherwise, the title WILL come true.

But you won’t be first on my hit list, oh nono~~ Someone took that place ages ago. And guess what? You aren’t number two either.

*Sigh* Alright, let me explain why I’m feeling this way…

Oh and if this post isn’t obvious already, there will be spoilers duhhhh lol

Regurgitating an entire episode isn’t really the thing that I do here, nor do I feel that I am talented enough to write in such a way which is as enjoyable as the beautiful ladies over at Dramabeans, so this post will probably seem more like a vented rant than ever (sorry in advance!)

My thoughts on “The Heirs” so far: …I sped-ran through 10 eps in 2 days FOR THIS?!

Hi everybody!

Firstly, I would like to say that this post is not any review or recap in any form; it is just me lashing out my feelings and thoughts about this drama, “The Heirs”, so far.

First and foremost, I must state this; THIS POST WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS HERE AND THERE! It is my opinion on the drama after all. So, if you haven’t started watching it, or only at the first couple of episodes, please read this entry at you own will.

Day 25: My childhood friend…if only you were real (so jealous of Christopher now ><)

Day 25: Who is your favourite Disney character and why?

Hello and welcome back! Today’s question is just too hard; HOW AM I SUPPOSE TO CHOOSE????!!!!!!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…

If I had to choose my favourite Disney character it would have to be Winnie the Pooh.

I still say it till this day, in his voice too :)

I still say it till this day, in his voice too 🙂

Watching “The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” every Saturday morning was one of the most happiest times in my childhood. My father back then would always record the episodes on VHS (yes guys, back then when we used THAT ><) and I would watch them for days before the next week’s episode. Saturday Disney was definitely one of the best shows ever (along with Cheeze TV XD). Wow, I feel so nostalgic right now. Pooh’s love for his friends who lived in the Hundred Acre Woods with him was just too sweet and adorable to not love. I mean come one, honestly he is probably one of the most popular and most recognised Disney characters in all of Disney history.

I used to have everything related to Winnie the Pooh like plush toys, figurines, even a Winnie the Pooh blanket. Don’t know where they are now, but they are somewhere, trust me >< I loved him to bits, and I still do. I even still say “Oh, bother” in the exact voice when I am troubled and can’t swear. I also say his “think, think, think” lines too – he has just left such an impact on my childhood, and has made my younger life that extra special >//<

If only life was as easy as tapping your head like Pooh

Okay, this is the end of the post. Hope you all enjoyed it, and I’ll see you all soon~~
