Struck with Asian Fever – Again!!!

오랜만이다!
잘 지냈어요?

It’s been a bit more than four years since I’ve last posted on this blog.
So much has happened in those four year ~~ life happened. 🙂
In the span of 4 years, I wasn’t able to write anything or keep up with the trends. I had to withdrew from my Asian addiction because life demanded more.
So this blog was shelved.

But about a month ago I was stuck at home ~ advised by my doctor to rest for 2 weeks.
I was bored as hell! I finished most of the shows on youtube I was subscribed to and Netflix shows didn’t interest me (because I’ve seen most of them).

Then my sister was raving about a Korean drama called Goblin (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神 – 도깨비).
I didn’t really feel like watching any Kdrama – I basically swore off anything Asian for fear that my addiction would come back. But because I was bored – I tried to watch it.
Was not expecting much – but I was looking forward to seeing Lee Dongwook.


Started episode one – then it became episode 2 – then 3… then before I knew it I finished all 16 episodes in a day!!! Goodness! Asian fever has slowly descended once more.
Then I found myself watching Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. Went crazy over Bok Joo and Jun Hyung.

And then Love in the Moonlight happened.
And I’m totally SOLD! Damn you Bogum-magic! I’m definitel struck by Asian fever again!

Who would’t fall for this kid!

I couldn’t get over this dance – I still watch it over and over again.

He’s too cute for his own good!

In all honesty, I was still contemplating about writing again. A lot of friends have urged me – but I was afraid to write again. One was because I felt stuck in 2013 – I didn’t know the trends. I didn’t know the dramas. I didn’t know any of the new songs – the last band I followed was Block B and Apink. (Old school much?)

And then one day, I went to the cinema in Cebu (Philippines) and guess which poster I saw:

Yes! This is definitely a sign.
Then I heard a lady in her late 40s say – “Naa na diay na? Kana lang atong tan-awon kay naa si JoongKi”.
(Translation: Oh, is Battleship Island showing now? Let’s watch that movie instead because JoongKi is in it.)
Sign #2.
And right then and there I decided ~ it’s time to resurrect the blog!

I might be a little rusty when it comes to writing and giving life to this blog.
However, this time, I won’t be alone.
I’ve convinced some of my Asian crazy friends to create content with me. I’ll be introducing them soon.
And so chipskjaa@wordpress is alive again!!!

So dear reader, sit back and enjoy our content.
By the way, we’d love to hear from you so make sure to drop a line or two 🙂
After all – the contents we will be making will definitely be for you.

Of Wedding Speeches and songs..

Ok.. so you maybe wondering who is getting married.. is it some Kpop star.. ummm actually no one! haha

I have moved back home and from that time I have been so busy, I didn’t have the time to write on my blog. I have missed all the new Kdramas, I don’t even get to read recaps anymore :(. I’ve had a whirlwind of activities lined up and it doesn’t seem to end.

This is probably the longest time I have sitting in a computer doing absolutely nothing! Ha!

All this while I have kept myself busy helping cousins and my sister with their own business. My sister is in the early stages of setting up her own path as a WEDDING PLANNER ( if you’re from Cebu and you need someone for your wedding send me a message! :)). And it’s because of her that I have been sort of addicted to anything about weddings! Looking at dresses, bouquets and wedding stuff on youtube. And it’s because of this that I have strayed a bit from all the Kpop posting.

From all those wedding themed youtube videos, I think what I am going to post is one of the best yet. And maybe some of you might have seen this already because it’s not that new anymore and from what I gather it went viral some months ago. It was even featured on Teens React To…

What I am talking about is the video of McFly‘s Tom Fletcher‘s Wedding Speech. This is probably one of the best I’ve heard.

Well technically it’s not a speech… but instead he sings his whole speech.

For those who don’t know him, he is one of the members of McFly. If you still don’t know them, remember a song called All About You? Or how about Shine A Light? They were the ones who sang it!

So Tom sang his thanks to all the McFly songs.. he just changed the lyrics. The speech/song though is quite long, but you have to see it to the end!

I am so addicted to this wedding speech now and  I think this is the most romantic one that I have seen. It is not only romantic but the effort he put to making the lyrics is such a sentiment of how grateful he is and how sincere he is with doing this. The last song had me sobbing! I just love that song so much (it’s why I liked McFly)

Oh the hopeless romantic in me wants my groom (wherever he is) to do the same.. though that’s minus points for originality!!! But this wedding speech could be an inspiration to all the future grooms. I’m sure your wives-to-be would be swooning over you!

Ahh weddings.. I am loving watching all of these.. but I have to find that white knight before I even dream of my own walk to remember.

See ya!

Coming Back Home!

If you haven’t noticed me posting something on the blog, it’s because I went on another hiatus because I had to move back to the Philippines. I love it a lot there unfortunately the course I wanted wasn’t available there. Well it is but there was something missing. So I have to come back —- for some time.

It was a little weird to come back home. I got so used the life there that it took awhile for me to adjust especially the traffic and the weather. But after a few days, it’s quite ok now.

I have been very very busy with the move. So I haven’t posted anything or read anything online. Heck I have not seen a drama in a long time! OMG!

But last night I found this video and I haven’t seen a video like this for a long time, especially not from a girl idol group. I’m posting it just to have something related to the blog. It’s from Sunny Hill and Daybreak. If you watch Gag Concert, I’m sure you will know who that guy is! Hahaha… I really like this guy! 🙂

I hope I can find time to post something! I’m Back!! weeee

Back After a Long Time

Hey everyone! How’s it going?

I’m finally back after a long time.. well not full time yet.. but I have some spare time to post something already. But not a lot yet because I’ve been really busy these past few months because I will be moving back to my country to study! I’ll be a student again after sometime! hahaha

Anyway… I know I did not put a post to thank everyone when my blog hit 1 million views. So I want to thank all who visited my blog 🙂 I’m glad someone reads my blog. And to think I started it because I was bored! I was honestly contemplating of letting this blog fade away, but seeing that I’ve reached a million made me think twice. Though the posts will be less.. but at least it’s still alive! So thanks again everyone!

And for this post I am sharing a song from the duo I am so rooting for in Kpop Star 2. It’s from Akdong Musician (악동뮤지션). It’s called 매력있어 (You’re Attractive).

I’m really enjoying their music and sound.

See ya!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Just a quick post to honor one of the most important woman in our lives…. our MOMS!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful Mom’s in the World..

 

And these two songs are for you all!

To My Mother – G.O.D

G.O.D’s first single from way back. This is a sad song by the way, but I kind of like this song because we have to tell our mom’s we love them.

Mama – Spice Girls

I know I know it’s not Asian. But as a girl who has grown up I think I understand fully what this song means now 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day!

It’s Been a Long Time…

OMG I can’t believe I am blogging again. I haven’t blogged for so long now and it feels good to blog again.

I was really thinking of giving up this blog because I don’t have much time and because there are many kpop sources now so it’s not that hard to find the lyrics of songs or the latest Kpop news. But I couldn’t bear closing the blog. So I decided to keep it and post as much as I can. But as there are too many sources for Kpop now, I might need to do a little change with contents. Yes, there will still be something about Korea music and news, but I want my blog to have more than that.

I still love kpop but currently I am addicted to this song:

Jetlag – Simple Plan ft. Natasha Bedingfield

I have been a fan of Simple Plan for the longest time and I can’t believe Natasha Bedingfield is doing a punk rock song!

more posts to come!

Honk For Japan!!!

We all know what happened to Japan… I’m scared for the people who are there especially for my friends. I was very happy to know that all of them were coming home!

I’m so far from Japan, but in my own little way I would like to help. I have prayed for them but when I saw this video made by nigahiga (one of my favorite youtube personalities) posted this video, I knew I had to post it.

Yes it has nothing to do with anything with the hallyu wave or jpop or mandopop. But this is how we can help. For every 1,000,000 views of this video, $600 will be donated by nigahiga to Red Cross. And that’s a lot to help our brothers and sisters in Japan.

So keep on viewing the video and post it anywhere you can so we could help out!

Thanks! and let’s continue to pray for the safety of Japan…

A Very Very Late Birthday Post

I know it’s almost been a month since her birthday… but I’m still making a birthday post for Joan! Happy Birthday Joan! And to help me greet you… I asked Fei Lun Hai to give you some cake!

Last year it was a mix of Vic Zhou and Wu Chun pictures. This year I asked her what she wanted me to post.. and she said Han Geng (Hankyung of Super Junior). It was because of Han Geng that all my Super Junior addiction started. Because Joan liked Han Geng she started watching Suju videos. And she shared some to me and the rest is history… So wish granted!

A Very Serious Han Geng…

A Very Handsome Han Geng! don’t you agree Joan?

Han Geng is writing something… for Joan maybe? – even when he is writing he looks good!

Han Geng has some presents Joan! He said he made this shake for you! ^^

And his other present is this stuffed animal for Joan! ^^

And his last message for Joan is… “生日快乐 李南, 我爱你!!!” (“,)

Happy Birthday Joan!! How you liked it.. sorry it came a bit late ^^ Thanks for everything and anytime you need me I’m here 😀
