  • 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.

Empowering Banners Collection

yss_banner

Yes, you saw it right. Mabel Yuan Shan Shan is on the banner. While half of the population are out there hating on her – for whatever reasons, I’m one of those that actually like her. I will say that I haven’t even watched enough dramas OR anything to form an opinion or go after her on that front. But I quite like her off-screen presence thus far. Reading some articles and watching some shows, I think she has an awesome attitude toward life and is quite hardworking. Regardless of the troll backing her up with some drama projects I don’t care for, I still think she’s quite capable of working on her own – and that shouldn’t be held against her. Not to mention those repeated roles won’t help her grow at all. I like her recent works more, plus it would be a bonus if it steers clear of that particular troll. I also choose to focus on the goods.

So, in the future, there will be more banners of hardworking artists that I really admire. I started with Mabel because I always wanted to do some kind of layout using this set of pictures she shot awhile back. It’s just a coincident that I finally decided to do such a collection.

Possible future banners will include the following:

  • Ruby Lin – Strong, independent career woman. Kudos to her!
  • Dou Hua Mei – Cai Huang Ru – Yes, she has been on the banner for several months now – whether it was regarding one drama or another. But I quite like her – both acting-wise and off-screen presence.
  • Janine Chang – Just so graceful and awesome on many levels.
  • Sweety – Joanne and Esther – I want to place them in together like once upon a time just for kicks, lol.
  • Angela Chang – Yes, it seems like most people on the poll made it.
  • Achel Chang – Just because.
  • Sophia Chou – Yes, I want to make up for all the times I didn’t update on her, lol.
  • Penny Lin – Yes, I’m back with obsessing over Penny so why not?
  • Loura Lou – No explanation needed.
  • Jia Qing – Same reason as above, lol.
  • Lemon Zhang Meng – She’s really growing on me.
  • Yoki Sun – Just because, lol.
  • Cecilia Han Xue – Why not?

And so, so sorry to those who are already married or taken. Because I admire the ones working on their own and surviving the world without caving into the public’s pressure more. NOT that I want to discredit those who are married or taken for their hardworking attitude, but seriously, they have their significant other to weep over stuffs. (And I do congratulate those whom had found their true love already, but they have a support team.)

Will I include the guys in the future? Possible. Because I think I’ve been focusing on the guys too much on the blog so I want to restore the balance a bit, lol. And yes, I do feel guilty for running after the guys all the time with dramas and all.

Here are list of possible candidates:

  • Wallace Huo – Need I say more?
  • Nicholas Teo – Epic music always. Totally down to earth on many levels
  • Ehlo Huang – Yes, I need to place him in.
  • Zhao Jun Ya – I miss him! Yes, on the banner. So this will be a good excuse to put him back on there, lol.
  • Wallace Chung – Yes, I like him ages back, before the whole craze with those adaptations of novels or whatever of recent years. So why not, right?
  • Han Dong – Yes, if you listen to his interviews and stuffs, you’ll love him even more. At least, I did.

And also like the girls, I won’t put in the ones who are married or taken. So sorry, Vic Chou! But I wish I could make an exception.

I want to also add, the less scandals surrounding them, the better. So some I might like on another front but might not place in for that reason. NOT because I want to follow the illusion of wanting everyone to be perfect. I’m just so tired of some people’s rumors instead of seeing their works.

Top 10 Gift Options

Yes, I wanted to use this as a side random blab. And because I feel like it. This is, of course, according to my preference. So don’t jump in going ballistic about it just because I didn’t list some stuffs.

Love with Food – Need I say more? I love food.

Amazon – The world of temptation, lol.

Audible – It’s been addicting to listen more than read. And because I’ve been both busy and lazy (at different intervals).

Cold Stone – OMG, lifesavers, especially in the summer. Summer’s NOT my favorite season so seriously, it helps trying to wait it out. (AND no, I’m not one of those people complaining about winter when it’s around. I love winter ten times more than summer.)

Starbucks – ONLY because I want reward points, lol. But seriously, I especially love their Frappuccinos.

Stitch Fix – People say it’s too expensive, but like I said in my review, it all adds up and the wonderful stylists deserve all the credits. And the fact that I’m hopeless with fashion helps. It’s a lifesaver when I need to get a certain outfit for different occasions, especially professional attires.

Julep – Just because I’m a nail polish fan. And because they do have quite a few worthwhile products.

TGI Friday’s – The food might not be up to it for some people, but I thought the atmosphere is quite nice for a friendly gathering.

Barnes & Noble – I haven’t been to a bookstore in ages. It’s sad. But I think it’s because I’ve been getting my stuffs from Amazon and Audible mostly so I don’t feel too guilty for neglecting the bookstores. Also because since Borders shut down, it’s just too tragic to feel loyal to another bookstore. So yeah.

I was thinking of snapping some shots with my reward cards and all to place it in the post but decided against it in case they’re going to go after me for some legal rights of usage OR whatever else so didn’t put it in. And no, I’m not suggestion or implying anything with wanting gifts for the future hence the post. I just thought that gift cards/certificates are lifesavers nowadays, lol.

So, what are your favorite gift options?
