My Top Favorite Manga

Without I realize, my blog had gotten more than 50.000 views. Banzai! To commemorate this, as usual, I intend to write something personal. And this time I want to write about my favorite manga of all time. As you know, I'm an avid reader of manga and I've collected several series which crowded about 4 of my bookshelves. I would not include manga that still on-going on this list, so you would not see One Piece or Skip Beat. I will only include manga that had already ended. Okay, here we go:

Even MORE anime songs added to Wii Karaoke U!

Do you remember a while ago when I wrote about about Nintendo's Wii Karaoke U service adding Japanese songs to its already extensive portfolio of tracks? Well, today the European branch of the Kyoto-based company revealed that this library is ever growing, with 11 new songs added today - with nine of them having previously been used in anime, with the most notable from this batch being Shonen Jump franchises Naruto Shippuden and Bleach. Here is a full listing of available anime songs, with the new additions being in italics:

The Heirs

Shuk:We are three-quarters of the way through this thing, and we finally see some battle lines drawn. Okay, if you are doing a drinking game based on how many staring scenes are in this episode, your liver will still be in pain.But we get some baby steps forward, and maybe a steely-jaw moment or two from our lead.But for the record, I don't like Young-do with his fangs pulled because of love! [sob]


SHUKNOTE: Since Kim Tan has become a possessive fool who just makes everyone's situations worse, and Young-do has actually joined the ranks of humanity, however flawed, I will no longer call either by their monikers "Good" or "Bad".I'm still working on replacements, though. Bear with me.

I can't seem to focus on studying idk why. Today has been a day of revelation like I finally realized something. And idk if I still feel the same anymore cause tbh it has been a really really long time since and so far nothing has happened yet. Like idk I don't like it when ppl do things and expect something in return and when they expect you to do something that they don't. It just doesn't make sense. And I'm just really upset and shocked that even after knowing me for so long and knowing how horrible of an emotion expresser I am, I still get blamed for something that I didn't even do. I mean like its natural for ppl to wanna feel appreciated but what do you expect me to do seriously I've said my thanks and was happy the entire day and texted about how thankful and happy I was alr what else do you want me to do? I didn't even ask for this thing yet you use it against me EVERY SINGLE TIME we quarrel whether it's related or not. Saying stuff like 'you're damn ungrateful' in a harsh way and whatnot when you know I suck at showing or saying how I really feel and when I've alr shown my appreciation in any way I can. I didn't ask for this and neither do I deserve the after treatment. If I knew that it was gonna be this way I would have rather celebrated my 18th alone. Why are you even blaming me for the choices you make seriously

Anyway unhappy stuff aside I'm kinda addicted to Korean dramas recently. Actually it's just dramas that lee min ho acts in HAHA but c'mon la after watching the heirs who wouldn't wanna see more of him right I'm sure I'm not the only one trololol~ I've been suppressing the urge to watch city hunter for a week now and I think it's super applaudable cause he looks damn hot in that show??? Like omg it's out of this world sia. Maybe it's just the kind of hair that I like but still it's an action series and you know with all the fighting and shit it just makes ppl look wayyyyyyy hotter and cooler. And I plan to watch personal taste and faith too HAHA one of (or maybe the only) reason why I'm looking forward to the hols!! Don't ask me why I only know about those dramas now cause I was never ever a fan of such shows and have been devoted to anime my entire life but I guess it's time for a change now hehehehOh and if I forgot to mention ep 19 and 20 of the heirs will be out on 11 and 12 dec HAHA do you see how my addiction is getting in the way of getting straight A's nowwww I mean like wtf of all days why must it be the day when I HAVE TO study for hpi?? But thn again judging from how long I've resisted city hunter I think I can hold it off for a few more days (I hope).

Lie To Me

DraMarathon. Are there such terms? Haha.

I've spent much sleepless nights and days on the couch potato. The only difference is:I was lying on the bed hehe. And thank god for such an invention called smartphones (with data), life is always entertaining for DramaAddicts like me.

For example: I was out with my family to Orchard last weekend, getting Christmas gifts. And while we were waiting to dine, I took out my phone. That distracted me from dying of starvation. When my mom was trying on clothes, I was watching City Hunters (I missed the whole series on TV + it was only available on the app now!) Anyway I wasn't a LeeMinHo-er so that didn't bother me at all. The drama just killed my boredom.

Thought catalog

hello wello

This has been one hell of a week full of lots and lots and lots of thinking. Like idk everyday I hear things that switch on my thinking mode. And cause I'm taking a break from HPI since the paper is at 2 tmr I shall update this space a little.

Confessions of a sinner


SLP ytd was so good I got a red nose now and even tanner arms and my lower body and back is aching and I got drenched with bedok reservoir water like no tmr. And I met some really nice and funny ppl! Looking forward to the next activity alr HAHA.
