Lonely Memory: Penny Lin

I was just randomly browsing but saw Penny’s post about this movie, and how she was telling us to watch and support her. (Click here for the movie’s Facebook page.) This was written and directed by Alice Wang in 2015. (Go here for the article.) Supposedly, this is a story focused on women and their livelihood and the struggles they faced.

Penny’s character was A Qin (阿勤). Her character was both righteous and loyal.

Other female leads in here included Candy Wang (王奕瑾), Lene Lai (賴琳恩), and Francesca Kao (高慧君). The male leads consisted of Duan Jun Hao (段鈞豪) and Wang Xiang Yu (王翔宇).

Nylon and Lene's Wedding

This was the end of last year, but once again, I’m a slowpoke for updating and all.

The beautiful bride and her bridesmaids.

The groom and his best men.

Of course there were other friends whom attended the wedding and even performed for the couple.

Of course, Nylon didn’t pass up the chance of serenading his wife.

Chen Yi caused quite a stir on his page because he posted a picture of him and Mandy as well as another picture with Qiao Qiao. (Fans were fighting, lol.)

Anyway, congrats to Nylon and Lene!

Year 2017 in Recap

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 repeated 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, 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 fanfics again and managed to get going on some, but I can’t promise 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.



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 a teeny, tiny bit of hope that 2018 will actually be better. So we’ll see, right?

New Year Surprise: Mr. and Mrs. Chen

To be honest, I was half asleep when I saw Nylon’s post with a picture of him and Lene the other day. I thought it was a project they were involved in–again. Yet what caught my attention was the “Mrs. Chen” part so I scrolled back and read it more carefully. Sometimes it happens with just liking a picture but not reading messages entirely. So I did.

It actually took about an hour or so for the media to move right in, covering all incidents and dissecting about how their relationship began. It entertained me greatly. In fact, their proposal story was quite cute, lol! (Check here for the article.) When asked, Lene said they haven’t planned the wedding reception or honeymoon yet. However, they will definitely be taking wedding pictures. Hurray! Looking forward to that. And no, she’s not pregnant, in case anyone wants to link the two as it often happens when celeb couples rushed to get married of recent. She loves kids though (and wants two–according to the above article).

The two actually met on the set of Blissful Dandelion and have been dating for six years now.

So congrats to both Nylon and Lene! 2017 is going smoothly so far.

Refresh Man: A Reunion for Joanne and Aaron

I was browsing on Facebook and found Joanne’s post. After reading the article, I realized it was a drama. It was totally unexpected but I will continue to tune in. Many of the QiaoLun fans would be soooo happy. Because I think many have thought that the ship already sank, even before it came to fruition, considering what happened after the Love Buffet incident. But yay, finally some hope, right? (And last time when he guest-starred in Dear Mom didn’t count since it was just a mini appearance.)

Aside from the main leads, there are also many familiar faces in the drama. (Go here to follow their official page for updates.)
