  • Legend of Star Apple – Episode 6 – YES, need to finish the episode summaries.
  • Love Together (FTV) – Episode 4 – Honestly, I know, I’m lagging on bringing out reviews for this though I finished the drama ages ago already. YET couldn’t help it. I will get back into trying to finish the review since I’m watching it again recently and lifting off some quotes, etc.

Golden Bell Awards 2014: Nominations List

Okay, I’m late this year, but oh well. It’s not like I watched that much this year. Still, some of the nominations are actually on my to-watch list, just that I haven’t gotten time to watch it yet. But it sure is all over the place this year. It’s not that I’m complaining. I just feel that it’s a bit strange. Yet I guess it’s refreshing in a sense.

Love Doesn’t Harm: A Qiaoru Reunion

Yes, good news for Qiaoru fans at long last! A special thanks to LJ05 for updating the rest of us regarding Qiaoru. I discovered it when I went back to AF to do my browsing like once in a blue moon nowadays. So I spotted the post update. I was sooooo happy. I meant I knew about Calvin’s album release awhile back. Yet didn’t realize he was collaborating with Qiao Qiao for one of the MVs. So imagine how excited I was when I found out about it. I went to hunt down for the MV right away.

In other related news, Sweety has joined HIM hence the chance of this collaboration with Calvin. That also means that Sweety will make their comeback in the near future! I’m soooo excited for this new development. It’s like a double celebration aka Sweety reunion and Qiao reunion! How nice is that, right?

(Credit: HIM)

Anyway, the MV’s just soooo sad! But the song is good though. Hopefully there will be more collaboration in the future. But for now, just want to enjoy this!

They Say

I’m finally reviewing this after soooo long. Yes, I sure took my precious time. So, first thoughts? I thought her voice would take on a sweeter feeling, considering how her normal voice. But it doesn’t mean I don’t like it. I find it unique. I also like the artistic approach for this album, and how the theme seemed to reflect with keeping it real. There were some added sophistication into it but that reflected of her different sides.

1. Epiphyllum (曇花). Such a beautiful song. The music flows nicely long with her voice. The lyrics blend nicely along, weaving a very mystical picture. Yet what’s so mesmerizing about the song is the imagery along with the string instrument used to tug at one’s heart.

2. Song of Midsummer (盛夏的歌). Lyrics were penned by Cecilia. A very fun and uplifting song. Just right for the summer season. Very nice and cute in a sense. It started out with a mild sense of upbeat, but intensified itself midway through. Worked out great.

3. They Say (他們說). Another song with its lyrics penned by Cecilia. This song really appealed to my rebellious side. More like how society kept telling and dictating for us to do what’s supposedly “right” yet it’s not their lives. It’s our lives. We should know what we want and we will have to deal with consequences, not them. So why listen? Love this song! Like the beat and a strong ending.

4. This Is Our Youth  (這就是我們的青春)(2012年的蘇州市吳中區形象宣傳片主題曲). Yet another song penned by Cecilia. Not that I’m complaining, lol. Another beautiful song, so nice and innocent, just like how youth usually is. Really love the overall feeling of this and the mood is nicely set.

5. Fatalism (宿命論). Lyrics penned by Cecilia. Fast and upbeat song. Has this ‘rocker’ feeling to it. Or maybe it’s just me, lol.

6. The Best Time, The Best Love (最好時光最好的愛). Yeah, it’s another song written by Cecilia. Another lovely song.

7. Midnight in Paris. Lyrics were penned by Cecilia (once again, lol). Started out slow and built itself to a really fast and upbeat song. Cecilia’s voice took on a cuter side for this one. The music is so addicting for this one – although just a simple song. Kudos to the composer.

8. Love is Like a Fire (愛就一把火). Penned by one of the best lyricists, Lin Xi. Another nice song by this lyricists. However, not my favorite among all the other songs.

9. Can’t Leave You (離不開你). Lyrics adapted by Cecilia. I was having mixed feelings throughout this song. Yet she won me over again. A sad and somewhat touching song. I didn’t mind that it was leaning toward the ‘whining’ side. Because the ending made all the difference.

10. Fleeing (逃離). I love them as a team as lyricist and composer. ‘Cause I really enjoyed their other collaborations (tracks 4 and 7). A somewhat sad song but it didn’t take on a pitiful tone. A feeling of reminiscence and a touch of a haunting past.

11. 1050﹣2009. Same team from tracks 4,7, and 10. Another epic collaboration to finish out the album. Love the piano mix in this one. It provided a beautiful flow for the song and splashed on it a very nice touch of an ancient feeling. Like a classic time era, which fitted nicely for the theme of the song.

Cecilia is truly a chameleon lyricist. I was really amazed and surprised by the range and theme she managed to capture in each one of the songs she wrote. Of course the accompanying of the wonderful composers helped. However, the lyrics she used for each song made it unique and how it wasn’t repetitive like how lyricists often fall into. Each theme of the song was different, so even if some of the simplest characters repeated (which was essential), the language used was totally different thus giving a different feeling for the song in general.

Recommended? Up to you. I felt it was worth it for me. It reassured me once again that I could still listen to qualify stuffs and enjoy pop music on its own, lol. PHEW! (LOL) But seriously though, it was worth it. For real. I was surprised that I enjoyed it that much. The first listen was misleading. It was a very beautiful album overall if you understand the flowery lyrics and imagery used.

Love with Food – September 2014 Box

I finally succumbed to this temptation and jumped on the bandwagon. YES, couldn’t help it. Come on, it’s food!

So, September, right? It’s “Spice Up Your Life” theme.

SIMPLY SO SWEET CHILI TORTILLA CHIPS BY WAY BETTER SNACKS. This tastes just like its name, lol. Just like corn mixed with tortilla chip. A bit salty, but not too way over salty. Could be addicting if you like spicy snacks.

LEMON ROSEMARY SEASONING BY FOGG CITY SPICE CO. I gave this one to my sister, who will tell me how it is later when she finally uses it.

HEMP RULES ROASTED HEMP SEEDS BY ZIGGY MARLEY ORGANICS. This one is probably better with soup or salad. I tasted it right out of the bag just to see how it is.

GREEN SUPERFOOD BY AMAZING GRASS. Never tried  this mix before. So this is my first time. How was it? Um, I’m sure I’m doing something wrong. Because I didn’t like the taste of it. Possibly because I didn’t like the flavor given here. Might explore more in the future. There’s a coupon included in the box for this one.

5 SPICE CARAMELS BY SHOTWELL CANDY CO. Um, it was weird to me. I guess it’s indeed different and unique in its own way. But I’ve never been a fan of caramel so didn’t enjoy it as much. Perhaps fans of caramels would like it very much.

MARUSO GHOST SOY SAUCE BY MARUSO. Possibly my first time trying it. (NOT sure.) But I had to taste it raw (without any sort of other ingredients mixed in) to see how it is. I dipped some shrimp into it and it was strange at first. But it gets addicting after awhile. I think I might hunt down for more in the future. There’s also a coupon in the box for this one, so I might use that.

RICH CHOCOLATE COOKIE THINS BY MANDY’S. Unexpectedly addicting. The cocoa smell is really nice. The sweetness is just right. Really addicting. I wolfed it down in one sitting. There’s also a coupon for this in the box.

CHURRO KETTLE CORN BY LOVE WITH FOOD. I wolfed this down in one sitting. Okay, maybe two or three sittings, lol. It wasn’t too sweet, so it was fine.

So after all that, what do I think? Is it worth $10 each month? For me, it is. ‘Cause it’s a little fun surprise box for me to look forward to each month, to see what’s going to be in it. I might get tired of it in the future, but who knows? Try it out for yourself and decide. (Or not, lol.)

Throwback Thursday: Wishing You A Pleasant Trip

(Uploaded by: 段譽)

As I was doing my usual browsing of old songs again and listening to Alec Su’s songs, and then eventually going into the related lists, which contained Nicky Wu’s old songs. Then it was this clip. YES, it was just for old times’ sake. AND I discovered something that was actually under my nose all these times. I swear it’s forgivable (or so I think, lol). I didn’t realize that Nicky wrote this song ages back. It was Julian Chen’s departure (when he went to serve in the military). There were lots of things they both couldn’t say to each other, so Nicky wrote this song to send Julian off. What was the most touching part was having Alec come out and join in singing with Nicky when Nicky was asked to sing the song (once again), dedicating it to Julian. Nicky was really surprised and touched at the same time, forcing Alec to be the one singing for the most part. Yet it was understandable. The organizers of the show had kept Nicky in the dark regarding Alec’s appearance.

Anyway, the song now takes on a different meaning for me. Well, the majority already know of their band and their close bond, yet I didn’t realize the background of this song until I found this clip.

If anyone wants to skip ahead toward the song, it’s at 6:38.
