    April, oh dear April! I might’ve disappointed you!

    We have officially entered the second quarter of the year & it feels surreal! I read a tweet before how people moaned about January being long and dragging but here we are almost mid-year! I can’t believe it, seriously! What’s the hurry though? Can we all chill down for a bit? Anyway, April was pretty nice and productive in some ways. What I promised myself to do though, well, I didn’t do it again because I’m such a procrastinator. But—

    Good characters are not necessarily good people.

    Some people like villains. Some readers like the character so evil you’re keen to ask why. And because of that some will try to question you. Your moral. Your logic. Because of your choices. But they all forget that liking a character is not as simple as making them your favorite cos it aligns to what you believe, your moral stance or whatever—you just personally like how great the character is because the story and how that character is written—

    My shoujo manga guilty reads! My fave mature romance!

    I think the concept of guilty reads is more on people perception to the subject as opposed to your own. To me, my guilty pleasure reads are something I don’t often enjoy but crave it once in a blue moon. And  while I adore light slice of life shoujo manga: where two main leads blushes furiously over holding hands, sometimes I venture to the mature side! Now, even though I read them, I rarely like series that is ONLY it,—

    Mitchii’s adventures in Fukuoka, Japan!

    Let me tell you this first, I’ve been watching anime since I was teeny tiny toddler (I didn’t know anime was,  didn’t even know it was made in Japan because local TV networks before localize them by changing everything from names to OP & ED songs). Once I got older, like elementary school kid older, I finally knew that type of ‘cartoons’ I watched are called anime, that they were made in Japan, and that’s why the culture is different—

    Trying to tick off some things from my Japan Trip Bucket List!

    I’m not the biggest believer of bucket list. Heck, I even wrote a lengthy post for that one. But I decided to make one when our trip was finally happening.   I’m not a glamorous person, but when I got older (my age now…thirties *sobs furiously*) I became more sentimental and very appreciative of the simple things in life. So when trip has finalized I decided to list down things I want to do while I’m there. Mind you all of—

    Suspension of belief, how far will you allow it?

    I don’t know about you guys but when it comes my choice of entertainment, I always (always) think that it’s not real, it’s just fiction and whether I end up liking or not has nothing to do with the story’s realism. Sure, I do want some hint of it (realism, I mean) but it’s not really a great big of a deal if it isn’t—especially if the story is overwhelmingly fictitious.  It’s just too much to ask for it when—

    The tiny ripple in this vast ocean!

    That’s how I felt even before when I tried (operative word: tried) to gain some followers because of book blogging game was fierce back then (think of ARCs). I always thought why me, why this small blog, this tiny ripple in this vast ocean? And then years later I came in to terms that it’s okay to be this tiny (cute? ) ripple in the ocean; it might sound insignificant or unnoticeable but the personal joy it brings to me—
