Hey everyone, how are you all doing? I’ve been slightly busy over the past week with my part-time job (working at one of the most busiest supermarkets in the area for five days in a row saps everything out of you) so I do apologise for not being able to post over the past week. I’ve been trying to maintain a routine of posting something once a week over the past month or so, which I’ve felt is manageable and a solid routine. Sadly, I couldn’t do that last week, but I hope to make it up to you all with this review!

Today, it is a Chinese movie review, and in fact the first movie review of the year! I finished watching this movie in the cinemas just yesterday, and let’s just say that I went in not expecting much from it, despite the hype.

And, no matter how sad it is to admit this, I kinda thanked myself afterwards for that…Kris gege, I’m so sorry!! Please forgive me and let me explain myself!

So, let us discover together the reasons why, together.

Oh, by the way there is a small spoiler but don’t worry because I’ve noted it beforehand kekeke~

I finally return to…lawsuits and break ups…WHAT the hell??!

Pfft, I wish LOL!

Pfft, I wish LOL!

I am finally returning!!! Hooray!

Oh my, how I’ve have missed you all! *Kisses and hugs thrown everywhere* Exams are now all complete, essays have all been handed in and I’m slowly gaining my sleeping routine back (staying up for five consecutive nights is the worst sort of pain to ever experience. Trust me, DON’T DO IT!!! ><) So, I’ll be slightly slow, but I’ll get there.

The purpose of this post is simple – it’s just going to be short and sweet, and it’s just a way to say “Thank You for waiting” and that “Yes, I’m still alive!”

EXO FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY RELEASES MIRACLES OF DECEMBER…albums…NEED I SAY MORE?!

Alright, enough joking around –  it’s gone on for WAY TOO LONG! The albums are finally out now, and I’m reminded even more that Christmas is literally just around the corner (hmmm is it guilty of me that I haven’t been too into the spirit yet?)

I don’t know what’s wrong with me guys…can someone save me from this Christmas depression I’m going through at the moment?

Anyways, let’s finish this once and for all!

By the way, I am aware that I’ma bit delayed; it was released over the weekend after all but…WHO CARES?!

YOU ARE FINALLY HERE! Yep, my Christmas list is complete...I think.

I am literally melting here.

I’m probably suffering from post-traumatic fangirl syndrome or something; I don’t know.

The only thing I am well aware of is the fact that I have to still wait another 4 more days for the rest of the album to be released, which to this woman here *points at herself* sounds like a death sentence!

*Intake deep breath*…Now, let us begin…
