Currently

So I admit to being a lazy dog these days. I have been reading this same book for a few months now. It's an awesome called...




I love this collection of short stories. I hope to be able to review this soon. :)

In other news, the drama and wuxia shows has been a bit slow. There's supposed to be an explosion of internet-novels adaptions coming up soon, so I have some hope for upcoming reviews. :)

A few books waiting in cue, but that'll come later when time opens up.

How are you doing these days? Anything fun?

A fun little visit :)

Look who came to visit!

It's Rustybaby!


He is so adorable as always.


He swaggered around the neighborhood.


Cruised around the cities.


And more than anything, looked so sweet while waiting for treats.
Bringing joy and fun to everyone around.

Rustybaby hopes you had a wonderful weekend much like he did (since everyone kept sneaking him chicken cooked specially for him while his parents weren't lookimg). And if your weekend was not as relaxing, He doesn't want you to worry.  Next weekend is just around the corner. ;)

Some red envelopes for all of you and some homemade tang yuan. :)

Happy Lunar New Year!

I, uh, totally meant to have this post out at the beginning of the month, but since it got delayed, let's just pretend it was planned for the Chinese New Year.

Happy year of the Horse! To recap, or at least minor catch up...

Last year ended on a pretty mundane note. It had some highs and lows with a lot of stress and then the sudden quiet mundane that was rather welcomed.

I got lots of chocolate because my dear friends remembered the easiest obsession gift option. Hehehe.


Look at all those delicious chocolate.
Part of that was also for my birthday. It was s nice quiet birthday for the most part. I was able to meet up with a bunch of friends prior to the day and that was wonderfully endearing. 

So as a way to get back into the right mindset for this year of the horse, I started back on the hobbies I enjoyed. Even though I don't have the finances for it, I still have enough to get back started. Making skincare, planting a garden, cooking and start writing.  Not to mention reading. Hehehe.
 


So what is up with you for this new year?

Where are we going? Dad 爸爸去哪儿 Reality TV/Travel/Kids

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Winter Holiday!  My apologies for being gone so long, but wanted to check in before the year is out.

I have currently been obsessing over a few things and one of them is this television show called Where are we going, Dad? in China.  It is wonderful and brilliant and hilarious and loving and my ultimate favorite and it just ended last night. (OMG WHAT AM I GOING TO DO NOW?!!! OH THE AGONY!!! Must rewatch NONSTOP.)

It is only 11 episodes and casts some very well known people.  The director, the olympic diver, the race car drive, the actor and the model.  The unexpected, they each bring their child - for the very first time for travel and game, without the moms!!!

There isn't any english subtitles yet, but I hope it will be soon.

I'm not a reality tv person, but I have been completely and deeply addicted to this series.

You have 5 different types of fathers with their children (3 boys and 2 girls) ages 3-6 having to go on quests and learning to adapt.  I love it.  I cannot express how much I love it.

Example, in the beginning, only 1 out of the 5 dads actually knew how to cook.  By the end, you have all the dads willing cooking their kids' favorite food. 

Also, in the beginning, many of kids would cry (obviously since everything is new) for their moms, by the end, they all grow up so much. 

I can't believe it's over.  *cries*  I know they are working on more seasons and I will probably keep watching, but nothing can compare to this first one.  It's so very wonderful and I am going to miss these kids so much.  I adore them.  Why must it be over?!! *cries some more*

This show simultaneously makes me want to have kids so much and not want any children at all...so, I just continue to play with other people's babies because I love the fact this show doesn't shy away from the harder aspects of having kids.  Love...

If anything, I need to get me a dog. Lol.

In any case, I am hoping to do episode posts soon.  I just need to figure out these screenshot stuff.  Although, the real problem is actually writing the posts and not get distracted by the cuteness. Lol.

Alive~~~

Ahhhhhhhhhhh!

I am so sorry for being away for so long. Been mostly in lurk mode these days.

If you follow me on twitter or facebook, you may have noticed the reason for my absences. On top of the still existent foot injury, I took a trip to visit my relatives in Taiwan last month...and subsequently caught a cold while taking those really annoy glamor photos.

Hopefully, I will be able to gather all the dispersed pictures and share them here soon. Until then, here's me at the end of that day.  I was so exhausted...but that's a story for another day.

All in all, I'm still alive and as well as the universe allows. Busy with work after finally recovering from my cold and jet lag, but I will still be rather quiet here. Aside from the foot slowing me down, although I am finally able to do things and move around, I am currently working on my failing efforts at NaNoWriMo. I am doing REALLY BADLY, but am attempting nonetheless.

How was everyone's Halloween?  I know, it's a little late asking, but I do very much love love Halloween. Had to miss Hocus Pocus. Sad.

It's almost Turkey day and then winter holidays...time waits for no one.

Do anything interesting? Any upcoming plans?

Sick

Yes, I am sick.

Currently missing my favorite holiday due to a cold that has struck me voiceless and my foot with a newly added rash (due to allergies) on top of the still swollen ankle.  

Was planning to do NaNoWriMo as well, but not sure if I'm physically up to it. 

Ah, Universe 0 so very fun.
