I love this show. If I need to sum it up in a sentence, it’s really just that: I love it. I’m sure we’re all familiar with the premise by now, having sat through the 2010 Kdrama version, Playful Kiss and/or the 2005-2008 TWdrama version, It Started With A Kiss. Caveat: I watched the former … More Mischievous Kiss ~ Love in Tokyo: An Overall Review.
“The truth is sometimes I feel really stressed out to be back, like I’m suffocating. But the moment I’m away, all I want is to be back. It’s like this every (fuckin’) time. It’s weird, knowing and still wanting it anyway.” “It’s called human nature.” Sometimes we just never learn, do we?
“I think you guys need to talk it over,” he said. “Talk it over,” he said. Three words forming a sentence that’s most foreign to my ears. I tried to hold back laughter, or was it dread? Heartbreak, or hilarity? It’s the story that most everyone has moved on from. Maybe. It’s the story of … More the black sheep.
I’m about to finally lay to rest Mischievous Kiss ~ Love in Tokyo by writing the overall review in the next few hours, but I need to get this out of my system first, hence this random entry about the drama-blogging landscape… Just because. A quick alert: this will be long (rant) – I apologize, I’ve … More dramas, it’s me and most definitely not you.
“I need to talk to you, stat. 5 minutes.” “OMG why, is this serious? It sounds serious.” “Very serious. We had a Board of Trustees meeting just two days ago.” “OMG don’t tell me… They changed their minds??” “No, it’s that you can’t tell anyone in this event that you’re continuing on to Masters [under … More the exception.
I swear this was so not in the plans to be written – nope, not at all. In fact, to be completely honest, ever since I’d caught the first two episodes of I Hear Your Voice approximately three weeks ago and continued to watch this show whenever I lucked out while watching TV, this is … More I Hear Your Voice: An Incredibly Loose First Impression slash Halftime Review.
Sometimes I think I am constantly between time zones and geographical continents, neither here nor there. I say this so often, I know, but I need you to know that I mean it – it isn’t that I’m unhappy to be back home. It isn’t that I hate being back in familiar territories and the … More transitional emotional woe.
I’ve actually managed to watch this final episode last Saturday night but poor Internet reception and having only the iPad made it impossible to write this out immediately. Let me assure you though that it pained me as much as it did to you (if you’d been anticipating this!) that this entry isn’t released sooner … More Timeout: Naoki! Kotoko! Love in Tokyo!
It is back to reality check tomorrow and truthfully, I’m not sure how I feel about it. The past weekend has been a mixed bag, as everything in my life tends to be these days – nothing goes as planned, let’s just conclude that and what more when it comes to traveling – and away … More (un)cluttered silence.
Exactly a year later – I’m back in Miri, Sarawak. Sometimes it’s not really the location that counts, but Miri for me personally – it is it. Here’s the place that inspired The Summer Break Series set of write-ups and most importantly, the place that humbled me. It’s the place that taught me the raw … More The Summer Break Series: A Year Later.
