Ruby Lin’s 2018 Birthday

This was over a week ago but I got lazy and didn’t update. Anyway, it seemed like Ruby had a wonderful night with friends.

Aside from Melvin Sia and Tiffany Hsu from her The Way We Were gang, there was also Derek Chang and Greg Hsu from My Dear Boy. Regretfully, Jason Zou wasn’t there. But Ruby did call Alec Su out on it in her tags, lol. What was a good bonus for fans was Wallace’s appearance. But I don’t know why people are surprised, because they’re married. Wallace always make time for his loved ones.

Year 2017 in Recap

year_review
When I thought that 2016 was a terrible year for me, I was wrong. 2017 continued to tank to a new level of crappiness. There were many frustrating things–one after another. It was like when I asked, “How much worse could 2017 be?”, it was like a challenge to the universe. So stuff happening in real life obviously affected how much time I have for this blog or attempted to keep some sort of activity. I did better than last year regarding updates, but that was a lot of effort, because I’m still way behind on some news that I wanted to talk about. Yet no time or more like didn’t feel like it at the moment. I continued to get drained to another level that I thought might not be possible–like several days before. Then the pattern just repeat itself at different intervals. I think somewhere along the way, I ended up revamping my blog by getting rid of the too random posts. Like those general update ones. Although my blog already is random on many levels, but I didn’t want to just post for the sake of placeholders too much. Anyway, here are some stats for this year.

Total Posts in 2017: 155 (11.7% of all time).
January: 18 (% of the year)
February: 10 (%)
March: 21 (%)
April: 20 (%)
May: 11 (%)
June: 18 (%)
July: 6 (%)
August: 4 (%)
September: 20 (%)
October: 14 (%)
November: 9 (%)
December: 4 (%)

Books Reviews: Sad, because I actually read a bit this year but didn’t feel like doing reviews for some of them. Maybe I’ll go back to do them later.

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries:

Fan Fiction: Complete failure–unlike what I promised last year about getting  things done. I started looking over some of the fan fics again and managed to get going on some, but I can’t promise on how fast it would be rolled out. I’ll get it out when I’m happy with what I wrote.

Songs Translations: I used “You’re Always Beautiful” to start the year, thinking that if I continue to retain some sense of positiveness, somehow things will get better. But it didn’t. Anyway, how was this year regarding translations? I didn’t realize I was that productive. Mostly, I tried to push the majority of 183 Club’s songs out.

Chinese:

Vietnamese:

I didn’t want to do this update like I said last year. However, I felt like I needed to persuade myself to continue on. Not to mention, I want to keep some sort of teeny, tiny bit of hope that 2018 will actually be better. So we’ll see, right?

My Dear Boy: Wrap-Up

Yes, the drama has wrapped up already after several months of filming. The cast and crew seemed to get along quite well.

My Dear Boy: Blessing Ceremony

Yes, this drama is finally taking off. It went quiet for a while that I almost thought it got scraped. Serious. Then saw Ruby’s page update today so excited. (Go here for articles.)

What’s even more exciting is the announcement of additional cast. Joining Ruby and Derek as part of the main cast are Archie Kao and Li Li Ren. Other cast include Zhang Ben Yu, Yan Yi Wen, Qu Zhong Heng, Greg Hsu, and Jenny Wen.

And yes, the Archie Kao that is married to Zhou Xun. That’s what the majority of the population that follows her career calls him. I know him as the guy who got robbed in CSI. (Yes, I never forgot or forgive after all these years.)

Anyway, what I find amusing is how Wallace has worked with Zhou Xun twice already, so now Ruby’s working with Archie, nice? Can’t wait to see what would come out of this collaboration and hope it would also be as successful. I silently wish that they’re paired together, but that would divert off course of the main theme? Watch the press conference below for more information.

Ruby Lin’s Returning Project

I just saw an update on Ruby’s Facebook the other night so I went to search for more information. (Check here, here, and here for articles.) Ruby’s returning project will be with Prince of Wolf‘s Derek Chang. She will also be co-producer for the drama. Thoughts about the pairing? Because yes, it’s hard to ignore. I think it’s a bit of a stretch (understatement here), but I will try to see how the plot and acting will be.
