Currently 2017 edition

So it’s been a while.  I’m sorry.  I have been too busy lately.  I went back to working full time for now, since school really put a hole in my bank account.  To be honest, I don’t think I’m going to go back to school.  Reason?  Age.  Money.  Interest.  The list is endless.

So to sum up my absence:

CURRENTLY WATCHING:  Knowing Brothers featuring the kings Bangtan Sonyeondanbts_20170917_124644 (BTS).  They are back and they have been slaying the charts!  This particular TV guesting had me laughing non stop.  I heard the cast were holding back in fear of ARMY backlash, but as a BTS fan, it was funny nonetheless.

 

CURRENTLY EATING:  Nothing.  It’s 3:30 am here, so yeah.

CURRENTLY CRAVING:  Bubble Milk Tea.  I have been craving this for weeks now, which is bad, since I am a type 2 diabetic.

CURRENTLY DRINKING:  Diet Coke.  Nothing special.

dec0fdf80d4c050111defb64e52cf5ee--brown-boots-outfit-fashion-bootsCURRENTLY WANTING TO BUY:  a new pair of fall boots.  I’m not a shoe person, per se.  I usually buy a pair and use it until it breaks or splits in half.  This year however, I decided to splurge a little bit.  I noticed that my paycheck depletes because of my restaurant hopping and I want to try and buy something for ME every paycheck — be it shoes, bag, clothes, makeup or skin care.  Something that is NOT food, goddamnit.

39efbdd3e8deb5912bf65eaae59b705d1b4cd51c_00CURRENTLY CRUSHING:  Who the FUCK else?  None other than the Golden Maknae of BTS, Jeon Jungkook.  Do I really have to tell you why?  He sings like an angel, exudes sexiness when he dances, has swag when he raps, he’s a freaking athlete, his body is to die for and despite all that, he remains one of the humblest, most down to earth celebrity I have ever known.  Yes, I know, I got it BAAAD.  I am so trash it’s embarrassing.

CURRENT SONG ON REPEAT:  DNA by BTS.  Actually, fuck that.  I have the whole Love Yourself:  Her on repeat.  Check it out if you haven’t already!  All the songs are great, but I recommend Dimple and Mic Drop the most.

CURRENTLY UPSET ABOUT:  My stupid roommate.  He has been an asshole as of late.  I can’t even manage to talk to him without wanting to slap that stupid look on his face.

Well there you go!  Toodles!

I should not have.

Soooo I’m back again.

Being obsessed with BTS means having to find ways to see them when they are currently not actively promoting and visible.  They are currently resting and their Wings tour will resume in a few days, so needy me needed to find a way to not miss them so much.  I decided…to read BTS fanfiction.

I don’t really like reading fanfictions because they are generally written haphazardly and since I am a reader, I know I’ll be annoyed reading something written by a person who has no business writing.  That being said, I searched online for the most well written BTS fanfiction and I came across a story that evolves around Jikook — meaning JImin and JungKOOK.  I was hesitant at first because as much as I love those Jikook youtube videos where they’re bromancing to the fullest, I wasn’t sure that I was ready to read something that is full on romance — especially since these two are my my biases in BTS.  I said to myself, fuck it.  YOLO, right?

I read one that is full on pornographic — it was like reading Fifty Shades of Grey, only more real because I can actually put actual faces on the two leads.  I thought the sex was going to turn me off, but I was suprised to find myself wanting to know what happens to the story next, and feeling that the sex parts are just a necessary part of their budding romance.  Is that weird?

I still don’t think they’re gay, but I found myself being okay with it they are.  Heaven help me.

M Countdown

So BTS made their comeback official at M Countdown.  They sang both title tracks, and I must say that they slayed both the performances.  Spring Day surprised me more, I expected them to just stand there and sing it since it’s a ballad but they had choreo and it was a masterpiece.  It suited Jimin the most, his contemporary roots really shone through.

Not Today was fire.  It was explosive and the choreography was divine.  At the last second though, Jeon Jungkook decided to be rude and winked.  I almost had a fucking heart attack.  He used to so timid and innocent — now he is a disrespectful beast who’s ready to kill you.  He knows what he is doing, this boy.

Here are the performances:

Bangtan Sonyeondan.

SOOOOOOOO!

I haven’t been posting anything lately since I have been very busy with school, work and FilCan Idol.  I’m not complaining though, this is exactly what I wanted.  It’s harder than I thought it would be, but I’m powering through.

2Aside from all that, I am presently obsessed with a South Korean band BTS (Bangtan Sonyeondan).  I realize that I am way too old to be fangirling, but I cannot help myself.  These group of young men are impressive in every sense of the word.  They are the most talented yet incredibly humble human beings.  I am not ashamed to be an ARMY (their fandom) at this age.

I love them all, but I gotta say that I am definitely leaning towards their maknae, Jeon Jungkook.  Name it, he has it — looks, dance prowess, skillful set of hands (drawing), athlete and most of all — his voice is ethereal.  No wonder he is called the golden maknae.

I’m seeing them on March 23!  BANG BANGTAN!

 

Backstreet withdrawal?!

So tickets for Nick Carter’s tour were on sale yesterday.  The tickets aren’t pricey but for some reason I just did not feel like buying.  I don’t understand it either.  I mean hands down, Nick is my favorite BSB.  Maybe it’s because I ‘m a fan of the group?  The truth is I don’t really listen much to Nick’s solo material.  After Now or Never I didn’t buy or listen to the ones that came after the first album.  I liked Now or Never, not as much as I thought I would but it wasn’t a complete and utter crap of an album.  Maybe it’s me getting older?

Anyway, even though I don’t feel like following his solo career I have been watching his journey on DWTS and I’m really hoping he wins.  The judges are pro-Bindi at this point but I think that Nick has a chance.

I got accepted at the singing contest I auditioned for — now I have to sing at the preliminaries on December 6.  EXCITED!

CURRENTLY…

Bull_Fighting-posterCURRENTLY WATCHING:  Bull Fighting (Dou Niu, Yao Bu Yao?) starring the gorgeous Mike He, Hebe Tian and Lee Wei.  This is actually an old Taiwanese series (2007) that I watched well, because of Mike He.  This is a story about basketball, family ties, friendshop and love.  It also stars Godfrey Gao of Mortal Instruments:  City of Bones so the hotness is well supplied!  I love how the story is integrated with street basketball and I absolutely LOVE the way Mike He plays ball!  I also love the OST of this series.

CURRENTLY EATING:  Shopsy’s All Beef Quarter Pounder Hot Dog.  I did not feel like cooking anything and i know that processed meats are supposed to cause cancer and shit.  I’m just not up to chopping, boiling, braising, sauteing and all that shit today.

thumb_600CURRENTLY CRAVING:  Baton Rouge’s Apple Cobbler.  Effin’ TO DIE FOR.  A warm apple cobbler with cinnamon, caramel sauce, walnuts and french vanilla ice cream.  How can you resist?  The sprinkled walnuts takes me to another level of heaven.  Imagine eating that after a delectable plate of rib steak and mashed.  SOOO GOOD!

CURRENTLY DRINKING:  Gibeau’s Orange Julep juice.  The sugar keeps on piling up!  I need to freaking stop or I won’t wake up tomorrow morning.

download (1) Urban_Decay_Naked_Skin_Liquid_Foundation_30ml_1390913626hd-foundation_P00015CURRENTLY WANTING TO BUY:  a new foundation.  I still have yet to decide which one.  I am currently using Urban Decay’s Naked Skin foundation but I am feeling an urge to change brands.  Don’t get me wrong, UD’s Naked Skin is good — light on the skin, good coverage, not oily and it fits my skin tone well.  I just have this thing of not sticking with cosmetic brands.  I’ve already tried Makeup Forever’s HD Foundation and Lancôme`s Teint Idole and they were all pretty good but I still think that the best one is still out there somewhere.

mikehehebe-copie-1CURRENTLY CRUSHING:  Who else?  Mike Freaking He!  He is especially HOT in Bull Fighting!  I just finished watching Go!  Single Lady and that made me want to watch Bull Fighting.  He is a sight to behold!  I swear if he stares at me the way he stares at Hebe I will faint!

CURRENT SONG ON REPEAT:  Marvin Gaye by Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor.  I don’t necessarily like this song but I have to sing it with my roomie for my friend’s birthday so I have on repeat so I could memorize the words.  I’m going to admit that it’s a struggle because deep inside me I don’t want to sing this song.

CURRENTLY UPSET ABOUT:  Nick Carter’s scores on Dancing with the Stars.  SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!  As much as I love Nick I knew that his Argentine Tango was meh but this Quickstep was sick!  I hate how they’re obsessing over Bindi — she looks so stocky when she dances!  I see no lines whatsoever.  They are nitpicking every single thing about Nick!  I mean, “out of sync for a quarter second” — REALLY??!?!?!

Man Candies

Someone asked me if I have a specific type or guy that I like.  I couldn’t answer and that bothered me.  I SHOULD know my taste!  That being said, I listed down some of my celebrity crushes :

2YvgKnjb_400x400

ALDEN RICHARDS.  He’s the “man of the hour” right now in the Philippines.  He caught my attention when I saw the Filipino series “One True Love”.  Not only is he easy on the eyes (the dimples!!!), this boy CAN ACT.  I bawled like a baby when he played an illiterate on One True Love.  He continued to make me laugh and cry on “Mundo Mo’y Akin”  alongside Louise delos Reyes.  He gave me “kilig vibes” when he played the rebellious  Yago on Carmela.  He is now the other half of the worldwide twitter trending hit Aldub.


ActorsJoe

JOE CHENG.  One of my two favorite Taiwanese actors.  I saw him first as the cold genius Zhi Shu in “It Started with a Kiss” and “They Kiss Again” alongside Ariel Lin.  I love how he does not take take himself seriously —  he is not afraid to make fun of himself.  Aside from his looks and acting chops, this guy CAN KISS.  I don’t know how many times I’ve repeated the honeymoon scene on They Kiss Again!  Ariel Lin is soooo lucky!

You can catch him on Channel X, The Rose and You Light Up My Star to name a few.


bc878d7222dade8768040ace3a872287

MIKE HE.  Judging from the list so far, I am into boy-next-door types.  Mike is different.  He usually plays bad boys in his shows.  My favorites include Bull Fighting, Why Why Love, Sunny Happiness and probably my most favorite Taiwanese series, Devil Beside You.  Like Joe Cheng, this guy can kiss like there’s no tomorrow.  He’s starting to show signs of improvement acting wise but in the meantime I’ll feast on his beautiful eyes.


carter_nick

NICK CARTER.  This guys holds the spot for the guy I obsessed over the most.  One fifth of the best-selling boyband the Backstreet Boys, I remember fangirling over him and everything he does — starting when I was 16 all the way to…today (well, not as extreme, but I still love him!).  I’ve collected posters, photos, articles and memorabilia.  I’ve seen them live 4 freaking times.  I vote religiously on Dancing with the Stars.  He is my ultimate crush…and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.


ian-somerhalder-live-wallpaper-1-1-s-307x512

IAN SOMERHALDER.  Before he was Damon Salvatore from the Vampire Diaries, He was the dean’s son on Young Americans.  Do I really need to explain?  LOOK AT THOSE EYES.  Staring like that should be a crime.  He does not need to compel me to make me do anything. *drools*


jang-geun-suk03

JANG GEUN SEUK.  He can sing, he can dance and boy can he act.  Known as the Prince of Asia, he played the sour-faced Hwang Tae Kyung on You’re Beautiful.  There was no stopping him after that — in comes Mary Stayed Out All Night, Love Rain, Bel Ami and Beethoven Virus.  This South Korean cutie has a voice that can melt you and he is probably one of the best actors I have ever watched in South Korea.  He’s not just a face — he’s talented to boot.


Jensen-jensen-ackles-34622694-1484-2229

JENSEN ACKLES.  Oh my Dean Winchester.  He is brother to Sam Winchester (played by Jared Padalecki, who’s a hottie on his own right) in CW’s Supernatural.  Before that, he played the saintly Eric Brady on Days of our Lives, where I first saw him.  He made me laugh (a LOT), cry, stomp my feet, scared — the list goes on and on.  Aside from all that, does he ever AGE?  I feel like he still looks exactly like the Dean Winchester of 2005.  He also sings <3.


JORDAN RODRIGUES.  The moves.  The voice,  the eyes.  The accent.  All that is why I had Dance Academy on repeat on Netflix, where he played the troubled but immensely talented Christian Reed.  You can now watch him on Meet the Fosters on ABC.  I hope to see more of this guy, he has great potential.  Not to mention he’s an eye candy!

SOOOO after that list it looks like I like clean looking Asians!  Not bad, not bad.
