Top Three Places I Hope to Visit

...Because their coolness is just so awesome. When I was still a wee young thing, I only dreamed of Disney World, Disney Land, anywhere where I could find a real Snow White or Donald duck (I will always hate Mickey). Then I grew up and went into that phase of being a weeboe and dreamed of only going to Japan. Now I'm nineteen, I became philosophical about the world and losing interest in humanity, I decided to delve into history, Now I present to you the top three places I want to visit someday:

3.Potala Castle
Located at Lhasa, Tibet, the palace was intended for Songtsan Gambo's then fiance, Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty. The palace then went several rebuildings and expansions for many years. Over the past three centuries, the palace gradually became a place where the Dalai Lama lived. Nowadays, it has been turned into a musuem, with huge number of tourists coming to visit each day.
I just think it as an amazing castle, it is not the usual type, but it had stood firm, from old asian royalties, to Tibetan monks, to Chinese, it transcends time. Plus it looks grand, I could already imagine Uruk-Hai  marching from the distance XD


2. Mont St. Micheal
This tidal island is oozing with awesomeness and historical importance that it was part of UNESCO's World Heritage List.
There was this known legend about this place:
"Archangel Michael appeared to St. Aubert, bishop of Avranches, in 708 and instructed him to build a church on the rocky islet. Aubert repeatedly ignored the angel's instruction, until Michael burned a hole in the bishop's skull with his finger"
I don't know if Micheal was truly as evil or whatever, but I sure want to go there ( Any other World Heritage site is worth visiting). *sigh


1.Neuschwanstein
Be-Cause. I mean just stare at this beotch. It's serious, it puts Disney Castle to second place by just being its main inspiration. Located in Bavaria, Germany. The palace was intended as a personal refuge for King Ludwig as well as a homage to composer Richard Wagner and his creations. However it was opened to the paying public immediately after the king's death in 1886.
Now it is one of the most visited places in Germany, as well as one of the most popular destination in all of Europe. The attention it truly deserves.

The Romantic Escapades of Aiba Masaki

Aiba Masaki. This. Guy. Is. Sunshine incarnate. I only have two girls for Aiba though, so this only means that our Smiling dude has the fewest girlfriends? Don't know, but we may as well see who made it into his heart.

The Romantic Escapades of Sho Sakurai

As of this moment, Sakurai Sho is famous due to various elements. Sexy body, sexy raps, sexy news casting and  the capability to create amazing art pieces. His reputation when it comes to girls isn't as noisy as Jun's or Ohno's, nor as often, and instead had his share of tabloids through him being a chain smoker and allegedly bitchy attitude to fans (the events of which are all the fangirls' fault ).

But naturally he still had a few female issues in the past. Just a handful, but in a Japanese media's point of view when an idol dates a girl, we call it full blown scandals. 
Oh yeah, let us see some lucky faces

Tutorials Ahoy


I'm a bookstore and library addict. I get to spend hours reading various books and never be bored. I am now going to share tutorials that I loved and a few that could be used for children's crafts.
First: Fishtail Braid!!
Second, a few tutorials from a Japanese craft magazine, how to do furoshiki. I believe there are already a lot of similar tutorials on the web.

UPDATED! Horang's Korean Horror Comics Translated!!!

Bwahaha, these animated webcomics must have been translated for a while now. I was genuinely scared out my wits when I first read them years ago. For those who have not seen the comics, it was made by the mysterious, and obscure Korean blogger known as Horang, who was assumed by fans to be a comic artist named Jong-Ho Choi. This is still unconfirmed, so we can never be sure. Using the ever-effective horror tale element: shock, Horang's two internet famous works are part of a special anthology series 2011 Mystery Sketch in naver.com.

Ladies and Gentlemen, PRESENTING:


Nope, won't give out spoilers, this is for sweet fear, must read with headphones and loneliness...

Royal Love Stories

When Diana had her fairy tale wedding, she looked every bit like Cinderella  The hair, the beauty, and all the lavish things the British Royal family could offer to the new couple. But forget not how that love story ended. Yep, not a happily ever after. This is Life anyway.



The past few months, I began to do a mini research on various Royalties from times long gone  A Royal couple, what comes to mind? Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII or Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI?? What surprised me is the treasure of romantic events that spun in and out the Kings, Queens and Princesses of all kinds, and some are almost quite unknown to the general public. I am now here to share three of my favorite tales:

Oh fun, just uploaded pics of a burger in my blog...

Just some Wedding Dresses

Wedding Bells, something blue, something borrowed. The most anticipated moment in preparing a wedding is choosing your very own wedding dress. Every other girl would want to find the perfect one in time for walking down the aisle. Last February, I came upon Sasaki Nozomi modelling a collection of colorful bridal dresses and they are simply awesome:


Wedding dresses has always been made in shining shimmering white, for purity, innocence yadda yadda, so seeing these colorful, unorthodox designs just makes me think that HEY it could also work too! In fact, it is definitely better since people would remember a bride wearing one of these (yep it's important, I mean what are guests for?) So buckle up ladies and start daydreaming:

Apparently Sho is in Singapore

Weibo is screaming Sho-Is-In-Singapore paparazzi photos. As you can remember Sho and Kitagawa Keiko is currently filming the movie version of an extended spinoff of their popular drama Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de, alongside the original production team from the series.


This would be the first time for Sho Sakurai (who arrived days ago, still not sure) to film overseas, and more surprises: It was reported that aside from the MerLion, Raffles Hotel, the production crew had reservations to use Asia's Biggest and one of the most luxurious Cruises, the SuperStar Virgo, for the filming location.

It's a major production of course, and keeping a low profile has been the number one priority. Fans succeded with Shiina Kippei and  Naoto Takenaka though.

The movie is planned to finish at the end of July, and released in theaters sometime by 2013.

Anyway time for Sho Sakurai Paparazzi Pics. lol, fans have became paparazzis too. But the good news is that despite the few photos being shared online with Sho being shy, he was said to wave at the fans at some of the other filming locations.

The Romantic Escapades of Ninomiya Kazunari

Ah the Forever Seventeen-year-old. Everyone's captivated by the epicness of Nino's immortal face. An Heir, Singer, Actor, Gamer, Host, Magician, Nino is also one of the JE idols whom the agency seemed to be lenient with. Throughout his career the guy was linked to a few girls but the seriousness of those relationships sounds real instead of just being a bunch of stories to spice up publicity.
Any fangirl would fall for that one
Guy-dates-girl is a normal type of gossip, but guy-dates-girl-and-is-serious-and-gives-gifts rumors are just too specific. Yet JE seems ok with it, as long as it's Nino? 
Maybe his cuteness could melt any of his seniors' hearts or maybe he is a truly obedient talent and understands the rules. If all else fails, plain favoritism. If I were to have a brother like him, I would be bias too anyway.

Nino's quite famous during his junior days, his bratty ways matured but remained playful and noisy. A number of girls were lucky enough to be able to know who he really is behind the camera.
So now let us look at the faces that had been placed beside Nino's in tabloids throughout the years.

Future Husband Ohno Satoshi in anan

Fucking GORGEOUS 31-year-old. When I'm bias, I am strictly favoring Ohno. I get excited when AnAn features Arashi members, I mean every time you Google Anan, you see Sho's abs and Jun is always present on the covers too, year in, year out. So when it's Ohno's turn once again. I just want to go on fangirling

The Trivial Matters Gets the Ratings

The months of April and May have been quite controversial for two Korean artists
Though Japan and Korea are related historically and culturally, the anti-Hallyu protests doesn't seem to stop, and instead, the Japanese media whose coverage can be overwhelming, focused itself, more than necessary, on the Korean stars.

Just last month the Japanese cyberworld is putting up a tantrum over Korean idol, Park Ji-yeon's "rude" and “barbaric”table manners that was shown in one of Shin Ramyun's CMs. Apparently self-righteous Japan cannot and would not tolerate a Korean eating from a pot being shown on TV.
"... the video pans to Ji-yeon sitting down to eat her finished meal when suddenly, for reasons unexplained, she removes the lid of the pot with one hand, plunges her chopsticks directly into the pot with the other, lifts up a mass of noodles and plops them down on the overturned lid as if it were a plate before transferring them into her cute little mouth...

Is THIS Even Serious?

I guess it is since it existed. Go here if you want to join the debate, I'll just have to wash my own hands on this.

Time for a Few Korean Urban Legends

Each and every cultures boasts their own share of urban legends and scary stories. who wouldn't want to hear a few? so today I would like to focus on the wonderful country of Korea. 
The scary one are almost always the same
Koreans have their own traditional ways and culture that dates back long ago, it is not surprising that we are able to see urban legends that had survived up until the modern age. Apart from the usual unmarried girl/guy still haunting beyond the grave and girls who are nine-tailed-foxes in disguise, there are also new stories to enjoy too, Here are my three faves and let us start with the weird one:

Fan Death 
Oh no, Kpop has nothing to do with this. It is all what you read. Literally dying because of electric fans.
Here is an excerpt from a korean english language newspaper, Korea Herald June 28, 1997:

Meet the Family

JE boys are notorious for having mysterious lives outside the entertainment industry. Mainly due to the agency's strict rules and regulations. Secrecy covers the family members. If I were an idol of course, I will not want to have my own loved ones stalked by fangirls.


But anyway, since we are normal fans,
I guess its alright to get to know them a little bit.

The Romantic Escapades of Matsumoto Jun

First let us read the following blind item urageinou2 wrote: "National idol group member M-J of A, is finally exposing his being a gay. This rumor has been circulated among the media lately."


Oh perfect, another gay rumor to add to the list. So far nothing has been revealed so Matsumoto is still and will always be officially a Male Man. Being one though needs the company of women, and Jun has been linked to a few gorgeous personalities through the years. So let us go down the memory lane and meet the females.

Patting Jin Akanishi's Shoulder

Once upon a time, there is this nation wide famous Japanese idol named Jin Akanishi who dated a beautiful actress named Kuroki Meisa.  The two had known each other for the past few years, but had grown close since the later part of 2010, and had finally started during the early days of 2011. Everything had been just a one big rumor that time.[1]



And POOF! It is confirmed that Jin Akanishi and Meisa Kuroki are officially married!
And Kuroki's preggie! and Johnny Kitagawa is pissed off! It wasn't a huge surprise when the old man ordered to cancel Jin's nationwide tour (5 cities,for 70,000 people) as a penalty to having a shotgun marraige. [2] We deeply apologize for the troubles he has caused the fans and everyone concerned.”Johnny’s Entertainment had apologized.

Arashi's Decline? Pulezzz

I remember this article by cyzo translated by Omoxi of Tumblr:




Since the mid-2000s, Arashi has sprung into the top artist seat, but since last year, their popularity has started to see gloom.
“In the 2000s, Arashi appearing in the media increased, and they acquired many new fans. However on the other hand, they’ve lost the power to attract core fans who shell out money, and their popularity foundation is dwindling. At the same time, however, groups like Kanjani8 or Hey! Say! JUMP have acquired this power, and even new groups like Kis-My-Ft2, Sexy Zone, or A.B.C.-Z have become a topic.”
“Each of Arashi’s members have some type of charm, but do not have the strong, influential personalities like Kimura Takuya or Nakai Masahiro that allows you to reign over the entertainment world for a long time. If they lose the age they can be called “cute”, Arashi’s members have lack of a personality to continue as the National Idol Group, or in other words, are too much this generation’s child.
Arashi’s bubble has reached its peak, and what comes next for them is now the real challenge. SMAP doesn’t have a member with higher education like Sakurai Sho, or a talented artist like Ohno Satoshi, but the question is can Arashi once more create their own era again? In any case, it looks like their real worth as an idol group can only be answered this year.”
So let us discuss:

The Unfortunate Blog of Miss Higashihara

Aki Higashihara is an extraordinary phenomenon and living Internet and 2ch legend. Anyone would think she may be famous because of her commercials or her being a TV personality. Yes, she's comfortably sitting in the entertainment world, but her stardom isn't due to her job but mainly because of her own blogging 'abilities'.

She became notorious on the web as a blogger who brings misfortune or failure to anyone or anything she chooses to blog about. Japanese internet users then began to call Higashihara’s blog as the “Death Blog”,a reference to the popular manga Death Note in which writing a persons name in a notebook would bring death to that person, even Higashihara herself was called "KIRA". 2ch's /occult/ board held discussion boards about it and made a compilation of her so-called "Success rate":

Unique Suggestions for your Bucket List

We all know what a Bucket List is. Seen the movie, made one for ourselves. We all even have our own similarities. Write a Novel, Go Around the World etc., etc.

But there would always be that small space in your list in which you are saving for a very unique, amazing, not necessarily life changing, goal you want to achieve before your death, and the hard part is indentifying what that is.

In this blogpost, I present to you a few suggestions, you could do some research on, to spice up your Bucket List. Keep Calm and Have Fun!!

  • Memorize the first 50 digits of PI
  • Learn an Ancient Language- Latin's not the only old school lingo out there. There's Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew, Sanskrit and whole lot more. The problem lies on finding yourself a mentor, but hey, there's no harm in trying.
  • Learn Pen Spinning- Because blessing a normal pen with a different role other than writing or stabbing is nice, especially if it helps keep the boredom away.
  • Learn ASL- Communication. It is such a beautiful word.
  • Ventriloquism- It is never easy, and it forces you to make witty and hilarious conversations with yourself, don't worry it would all be worth it.
  • Learn Pitman. Teeline and Gregg Shorthand- Time is what we lack nowadays, and you want to remember something, jot it down using these shorthand methods and you are on your way.
  • Learn Sindarin- Tolkein created a whole world....and a language, let us take advantage.
  • Do Lucid Dreaming- You wanna feel that Inception thing? Do this. Seriously. It consists of being relaxed and sometimes you might end up just sleeping peacefully, but determination might get you there.
  • Shave your head- And grow your hair back
  • Download an Ebook and Print it- Do this with banned books or classic/ rare ones.
  • Smile for One Whole Day- Oh look she's nagging at me, smile. Oh look I just lost the train, smile.
  • Recite the English Alphabet Backwards- Unnecessary, but this is not just a walk in the park, so useful or not, getting this one would still be something worth celebrating.
  • Cosplay your Favorite Fictional Character- Thou shall not fear cosplay. Try it and make sure you genuinely love the character you are cosplaying and at the same time suits you.
  • Unlock an Iphone- Do it.
  • Hide a File Behind a JPEG- Be a ninja, cyber style, just before you die.
  • Become a Human Calendar- Needs lots of memorization but this skill is actually handy.
  • Join NaNoWriMo- WRITE A NOVEL. How long have you dreamed of doing this and not getting anywhere? join nanowrimo this year and force yourself have a 50000 word novel by the end of the month.
  • Do whatever You Wrote in your Bucket List- Action is better than words.
