The 7 best Asian drama assistants who we wouldn’t mind hiring – Post on Dramafever

Hey guys, welcome back! Today I just published a new article for Dramafever entitled “The 7 best Asian drama assistants who we wouldn’t mind hiring”. As the title suggests, it is highlighting some of the best assistants that we can remember from our favourite Asian dramas! Hope you all enjoy, and go and contribute by commenting on who was your favourite out of the 7. Otherwise, who else can you think of that was a really cool assistant!

Haha Secretary Kim from "Master's Sun" is just too awesome for words!

We’ve probably all wondered at least once about running our very own business, with tons of loyal employees and followers like the huge CEOs we see so frequently from our favorite dramas. But we all know well that you could never be as successful as they were without your loyal assistant who is always there for you when you need him or her. Here is a list of some of the best assistants we’ve seen in dramas who we wouldn’t mind hiring to work for us.

Thank you all for your continuous support, and I will be back real soon with another post for the blog!

“Fall in Love with Me (愛上兩個我)” Review: HUH?! IT ENDED?! And, where the hell have I been?!

050E0000533E5BAE67379F7DF40CA76C

Overall Review:

A drama that did not have much potential to begin with, and sadly the drama just went through with that momentum. A real disappointment that did not even live to the already lowered-expectations.

Hello~~ It is so nice to be back! If you all were wondering why I just randomly disappeared, well there are a couple of reasons behind that. Some of them include a load of uni work, some full days spent at work, a day at my professional placement in an actual high school (which was truly an eye-opening and inspiring experience!) ya know, ‘life stuff’. The main reason, however, is that I was (and still am) fighting off a bad case of the flu, which gradually transformed into a fever, and has now left me with the remaining symptoms of a cold. I rarely ever get sick, but when I do, I swear I take a millennia to fight it off *sigh* I’ve just not been well to sit down in front of a computer and type endlessly for hours. So, sorry guys about that ><

Anyway, as the title may have already hinted, it is time for another review, and surprisingly enough, this is my first ever Taiwanese Drama review! How weird/cool is that?! The even-more surprising thing about this is, is that I never knew that the drama ended until a couple of days ago! Yes, I totally thought that this drama had at least another 10 episodes to go (though, plot-wise, it makes perfect sense) But, hey hey, it has ended and now comes the review! Thus, let us all start to slowly part ways with “Fall In Love With Me” (愛上兩個我)!

Current trek with “Fall In Love With Me” (愛上兩個我) [EP 3-11] – IT’S GETTING BETTER, HONEST!!!

Haha another poster pic! This one looks cuter >//<

Haha another poster pic! This one looks cuter >//<

Soooo, I am back with my updated/current trek with “Fall In Love With Me” (愛上兩個我). We have just reached the third-way mark (does that make sense people?? Does it??) of the drama and can I just say that initially, perhaps I was too quick to judge this drama. Sure, the drama is not exactly the most amazing one I’ve watched in a while, but the drama is definitely having those moments where it just suddenly shines through.

So, this post is just here to let you guys know how I’m finding the drama so far, and whether or not I would consider following the drama to the end. Also, this isn’t exactly a recap post (I can’t write proper recaps, trust me! I don’t believe that I am worthy of it!) but I can’t guarantee that I will avoid spoilers. Of course, I will try to not say too much, but no guarantees can be made here hehe!

Note: Just as a fun fact, both my Chinese and legal name are used as characters in the drama! Helen is my legal name, and Huan Huan (歡歡) is my Chinese name. It gets real weird when both are in the same scene; I feel as if they are all calling me LOLOL!

*clears throat* So, apart from the slightly awkward fun fact, let’s get busy!

I got nominated for a Liebster Award?! WHAAAAAAAAAAT?!

Liebster Award Logo

Hey everyone!! I am so so sorry that this particular post has gotten to you guys so very late. My life at the moment is getting pretty hectic; suddenly being forced to move out within one-two months is a big ordeal in my life, as finding a place to live is impossible apparently in the world I live in. But, no matter what happens, blogging will continue! (Even though I was taken away from it for days on end ><)

Andddddd HAPPY CHINESE/LUNAR NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Hope all you people who celebrate it (me included) had/have a nice time spending with the family and celebrating the New Year with everyone! 恭喜发财!!!

Anyway, thank you to the the lovely Sarah from DramAdrenaline,  Coffeenlucia, Chocokokoro and Kelly from Kellydramafantasy for nominating me for the award!!! You have no idea how much this means to me >//<

So, I honestly cannot believe that this is actually happening; seriously, when I first found out, I thought that it was a joke. I got nominated for a Liebster Award, which in blogging-land is a REALLY BIG DEAL! It is also quite legit, so there are rules and everything! Wait, give me a sec while I run away and calm down for a bit, yeah? *Runs around in a circle for 15 minutes non-stop* Okay…I think I’m…going to be sick!

How the Liebster Awards works:

1. Each nominee link back the person who nominated them.

2. Answer 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.

3. Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award who have less than 200 followers.

4. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

5. Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.

Alright, firstly I will answer Sarah’s questions, then move onto pantomiming‘s, Chocokokoro’s and finally Kelly‘s okay?
