KARD in Washington, D.C (2018)
You don’t have to tell me how late I am in writing this! I know. After a couple of months of writing performance reviews at work, I was really tired of sitting at the computer/laptop and writing anything at length, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it; however, I promised that I would write something before bewhY concert at Howard University Theater in November. So, with one day to go, here I am. Putting remembrance to blog post. Continue reading
G-Dragon aka Kwon Ji-yong
Of course I am writing this weeks after my return from Canada. First of all, what a wonderful experience to meet new friends for the first time! Friends that when you get to hang out with them and talk to them, its like you’ve known them for years!! Okay, I digress from the real reason you probably came to check out this blog post. However, my trip, suggested by my new BF Jay to come to Toronto to see G-Dragon was an utter success! Not only did I get a chance to meet Jay but also to see and meet our little maknae, Mawiie after years of talking to her on Twitter, Kakao, and Facebook! In addition, it was a chance to meet another new young friend, Marie! I guess I can consider myself a seasoned concertgoer as this makes my second full concert (BAP has the first honors) and my only fanmeet (and probably my last) with GOT7. More to come for September 2017 when me and my BAP concert buddies do a repeat and we go see K.A.R.D at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. Continue reading
Asian Drama Tag!
Hi! I’m taking the Drama tag challenge. Why? Because I’ve been too lazy to write my movie reviews, I’m so far behind but with the staycation coming up this week, I will play catch up! Any bloggers out there, feel free to take up the challenge. I’m following Hayleigh’s challenge. Though I will not just stick with Korean dramas, my focus will be what truly fits. Continue reading
I cannot begin to express how incredibly busy I am in the next few months. So busy that after meeting number 4 today, I left work with a splitting migraine only to sit in traffic for 15 minutes longer than usual just so I can get home and rest! Continue reading
GOT7 Turbulence in D.C
January 22, 2017
So, as you can see there is no Movie Monday post. Why you ask? Because I’m still recovering from my first and (mostly likely) last fan meet! No, it wasn’t because I had a bad time, I had a wonderful time. No, it wasn’t because it isn’t memorable, it was. No, it’s not because we stood in line, in the rain for 5 1/2 hours BEFORE we were even close enough to get in the building. The major problem is when you’re not of teenage age and you have to be in a venue with standing room only with aggressive and quite rude U.S teenagers, patience and politeness simply don’t exist.

We have finally approached the new year today. So many things happened for 2016 which makes me so happy to leave it behind. The death of my favorite aunt in August, followed by one of older sister’s death in September, took a tremendous toll on me spiritually and personally. It made Thanksgiving , Christmas and this New Years hard to get through. So, now we are in 2017. With the start of Trump administration at the end of the month, all we can do is pray for everyone that we make it through this period. I hate politics so I won’t dwell too much on it other than to hope that we don’t suffer the idiocy of an incompetent President and that he truly leads this country with respect and maintain the world comraderie that we have gained over the last year. What we don’t want is another stupid war run by stupid men that don’t/won’t sacrifice their own sons to fight. I don’t want to see Russia from my house. I don’t want to see the poor suffering. And lastly, I don’t want to see the elderly and sick to be ignored and forgotten. That is my wish for the next 4 years.
But let’s change the subject to happier things. I really fell behind in my blog postings because of my sister’s illness. Still to come are several reviews for daily dramas that I completed last year (Tomorrow’s Victory, Heaven’s Promise, and Working Mom, Parenting Dad), major posting for the Chinese mega drama, Three Kingdoms, and finally my end of year posting for 2016 as well as the Fall 2016 Japanese drama season. 2017 promises to deliver more of the same. Hopefully, we will get some great Korean dramas this year so I can return to watching. Let’s wait and see!
I have so many pending posts, it is ridiculous! Yes! I’m going to finish ON Ijou Hanzai Sousakan Todo Hinako and Death Cash!! I have like 3 Korean Daily Dramas to review! Soon the Summer 2006 Japanese Drama season watching will be complete. So, in the meantime to remind you that “I’ll be back”, here’s a post I had fun doing while responding to a Liebster Award nomination question. Thanks, kakashi!! Continue reading
Sometimes real life really does bring you down. For the next few weeks, I will not be blogging any new posts. Family issues of cancer has really gotten me down. Even my drama watching has slowed down except for dramas like Five Children, Heaven’s Promise, Legend of Nine Tail Foxes, and of course the weekly J-Dramas when they come available. However, I find it really difficult to blog so I’m putting all my posts on hold for a few weeks.
I do have quite a few posts in draft so don’t be surprised to see a flurry of activity in 2-3 weeks. Movie Monday will be on hold until mid June, 2016 and no other posts before then. I cannot stress the importance of self-checking, ladies! And gentlemen, encourage your mothers, wives, sisters, and girlfriends to also do them. Watching someone with Stage 4 breast cancer is the worse experience ever. It makes you sad, it makes it hard to function sometimes and definitely makes you consider “What Would You Do?”
What’s in the works?
Final Posting for Tomorrow Victory (2015)
Review of Thai Drama Series Mafia Luerd Mongkorn (all 5 dramas)
Drama Review of Three Kingdoms (2010)
Drama Review of Heaven’s Promise (2016) ~ The drama will probably be completed by then.
