Year 2015 in Recap


Oh joy, I’m bringing this back since it’s another year of madness. How did it go? Let’s check the number first, lol. Yes, before I start bragging and realized it wasn’t worth bragging over, lol. But before I actually go into the stats, I would like to thank The New World and iHero for making some of the impossibles happen. Because if it wasn’t for the dramas, I wouldn’t have updated so much or kept it so consistent for the better half of the year. Also, anyone wanting to check out the stat report from WordPress, click here.

Total Posts in 2015:

365 (35% of all time). Yes, I took the challenge of trying to keep up posts for 365 days SO had to brag here. It wasn’t easy and some posts were less impressive than others. However, I think it was already tough that I managed it all year long. For this year, will I be continuing on this pattern? I want to but I would say no. Since quality trumps quantity so I’ll still be updating, still be my random self at times, but I won’t force it as an everyday thing. If it happens, it happens. Now, moving on to the breakdown of different categories.


Times Updated on People on the Poll:

284 (78% of overall). I took out Ady and Hu Ge early on so I didn’t feel like I needed to include them in this section. Anyway, because I did the 365-day challenge, everyone benefited–one way or another. However, Achel had a surge, leaving Jun Ya behind with only 22 posts, because Wallace, Joanne, Bianca, and Jacky ended up having more posts than him for the year. That knocked him off top 5 for the year yet didn’t damage his overall record too much. Talking about that, he was the reason why I held off so long of not publishing this post since I needed to calculate some of the posts again. Yet I decided to gamble and take out some and possibly double back next year to correct it all. Oh yeah, I didn’t count general updates for some people, especially those with higher numbers already.
Wallace Huo: 26 (9% of the year)
Janine Chang: 16 (6%)
Vic Chou: 12 (4%)
Joanne Tseng: 25 (9%)
Nicholas Teo: 18 (6%)
Xiu Jie Kai: 12 (4%)
Angela Chang: 12 (4%)
Zhao Jun Ya: 22 (8%)
Yvonne Yao: 7 (2%)
Penny Lin: 16 (6%)
Achel Chang/ Zhang Xin Yu: 34 (12%)
Sophia Chou: 6 (2%)
Ruby Lin: 16 (6%)
Van Fan: 9 (3%)
Eric Suen: 5 (2%)
Bianca Bai: 25 (9%)
Jacky Chu: 23 (8%)

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries:

I will say that I was both proud and also a bit ashamed because I was cheating for several dramas by inserting placeholders. I was trying to motivate myself to watch faster and/or fill the spaces yet things got in the way and I fell behind once again.

Fan Fiction:

Songs Translations:

I think that it was too obvious that it was a Phil Chang year for me. Yes, I love that guy. Okay, mostly his songs, lol. But he is funny. Getting back to this, totally outdone myself on some levels. Overall, I translated 51 songs. OMG, that’s like a major achievement for me in this area. The previous year, I only did 12, but that was because I didn’t really take it as a challenge. I think this number will drop the upcoming year since I won’t be forcing myself to update every day.

Chinese: 46

Vietnamese: 5

Side Updates:

130 posts – My randomness seriously has gone way past normal. I didn’t count some of the side stuff. But The New World and iHero obviously dominated the scene for the beginning of the year.

For this year, I hope to bring out more quality posts, like I said earlier. I also hope to finish up the placeholder posts that I haven’t previously. Wish me luck and see you all next year!


He Came, Close Your Eyes: More Awesome Stills

I didn’t want to update on this too much. Mostly because there are lots of other places doing it. So I didn’t want to get repetitive. But I couldn’t help updating now. Mostly because of Wallace, lol.

The posters are seriously very high quality and mesmerizing. Not to mention creating this mystic aura.

But I also like those BTS ones with Wallace and the rest of the cast hard at work.

Close Your Eyes And He Came: A New Wallace Project

Yes, I knew about this project a while back but just didn’t want to blog about it until some other cast was confirmed. This is an adaptation from Ding Mo’s novel.

Wallace, of course, will portray the main character, Bo Jin Yan (薄靳言).

Sandra Ma (马思纯) will be the female lead, Jian Yao (简瑶).

Wang Kai (王凯) as Li Xun Ran (李熏染).

Zhang Lu Yi (张鲁一) as Xie Han (谢晗).

Zhang Ling Zhi (章龄之) as Yin Zi Qi (尹姿琪).

Yin Zheng (尹正) as Fu Zi Yu (傅子遇).

Anyway, according to some of the descriptions in the novel, I think that Wallace seriously suits this type of role, LOL! Not saying that it’s repetitive of past roles. But I think he could pull it off. The description so far reminds me of Tang Lang, lol. Not sure if the character would be crazy like Tang Lang or would be more serious. Regardless, looking forward to it.

By the way, remember to go to this forum for more discussions and goodies!
