Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 14


Hello and welcome back to the blog! For today’s question, it is:

Drama villain that you loved to hate or sympathised with

To settle on one memorable villain is slightly difficult, as some dramas actually take the time to try and develop backstories for them, which tends to be a neglected aspect typical of any drama villain. As for the two that I list below, they are just a small representation of some drama villains that I’ve come across which have stuck with me all this time.

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 7



Whoop! One week down already! Today’s question is slightly harder in my opinion, since there’s multiple dramas who always provides a childhood section, but makes it difficult for me to get attached to them:

Your favourite child actors/actresses

Thinking back to some older dramas, I can think of many child actors who gave an amazing performance when it came to the childhood portions. Sadly, they’re all grown up now, and it’s hard for me to classify them as children now. For example, Park Shin Hye and Baek Sung Hyun in Stairway to Heaven were amazing, but they’ve reached their 20s.

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 6


Welcome back to the 6th day of the Asian Drama Challenge! Here is today’s question:

Your favourite older actors/actresses

I really love this question, simply because this is a rarely considered question. I’ve come across so many actors and actresses over the years who I have fallen for despite the age gap. To make sure I don’t ramble away with this post, I’ve limited to 3 actors and 3 actresses! (It was still really hard to limit this list!!!)

Let’s start with the gents, shall we?

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?
