    Must watch and must read titles! Onward 2019!

    The anime community sure gonna agree with me on how awesome 2019 line up is!  There are so many good manga series getting anime adaptation that we all have been waiting for (I particularly keen to watch a lot shonen series + wishlist granted!!) and today I’ll be sharing you list of anime and some books that I want to watch and read next year! But let’s pedal back to this year first (before I gush out the awesomeness), I—

    Twenty Eighteen’s Best of the Best!

    It’s that time of year once again! I’m quite pleased with how my reading progress went this year. And unlike last year where it was kinda difficult process because of my very, very small pool of manga to pick! It was a happy struggle to know I have so many manga and webtoons to choose from because of how productive my 2018 is in terms of reading. So that’s the good part, the downside of this all is my anime—

    Onward Twenty Eighteen!

    When I was listing down the titles that I absolutely look forward to I got immediately overwhelmed! There. So. Many. Of. Them! Not that I’m complaining ‘cos the more the better, right? At least in this case, it’s true! There are tons of sequels from both old and new series that I’m currently following (manga-wise!) and I’m just super ecstatic that they’re coming this 2018 (which also makes me feel like 2018 will be good to me!) OK, I need—

    Twenty Seventeen Best of the Best!!

    This is kinda easy and somewhat kinda hard list to do. One, I reread so much this year (look out for my yearly stat report about it) that I only have few titles to pick from. It’s hard in the sense, since you know it’s the “best” list soooo they should be the best (well, they are! They are! But it felt like I didn’t have lots of contender so it was winner came by default). Secondly, not only did—

    I’ve always been in love with words.

    I’ve always been in love with words and I just didn’t notice it. I’ve posted something before how notorious journal writer I was (am actually, since I’m still keeping a personal diary). I started writing my diary at 10 years old. When my teacher in elementary school introduced the concept of writing things down, it sparked something in me. I continued it after. I made my extra notebook my diary and that was very start of my journal writing adventure.—

    Why I renamed and what’s gonna happen next?

    Hello! It’s nice to see you here! If you managed to hunt down where I relocated then thank you for following me, still. It’s nice to know that you’re up to the task of following my excessive fangirl outburst as part of your online activity; with that you have my huge thanks! And if you just gotten curious with the changes, I have that cover, too! Yes, this is former Rainyink (also the ex-Aeropapers) but the blogger (me!) want some—

    Our Singapore Holiday!

    Another country added on my travel visit! I don’t have my camera (it’s broken!), I don’t have any decent photo for a blog banner, but thanks PIXABAY, I had pretty one!) Last month, the entire fam went to Singapore! I’ve always wanted to check out Singapore, that rich country-island with amazing skyscrapers and creative architecture! You could say I’d been there  during my very quick layover when I returned from Australia! But all I saw was their airport, so now—

    Onward Twenty Seventeen!

    I need to confess: while I do look forward to my winter list, I’m not that super excited (so maybe I am for Gintama but that’s given!) But I don’t consider those as a signs of things to come. In fact I’m still hopeful that some of the manga series I’m wishing hard to get green-lit will still get it (I got one of the 5 wishlists, and that saying something!) And I’m also open to trying new or originals—

    Merry Christmas!

    It’s actually a tradition here in my blog to greet you everyone a very Merry Christmas! Ever since I started blogging I always make sure to greet everyone since I love Christmas! It’s the day of sharing but most of all to remember that we have received such precious gift from God! And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said—

    2017 Goals & Resolutions!

    Oh that time again! I had very humble and quite realistic goals for this year. But even with that I still managed to slip through it and unable to do at least two of them.  One, I didn’t beat my reading goal last year—in fact I failed miserably! But it was a personal decision to not force myself to read books. I’m not into reading books right now (a friend of mine shares the same sentiment; we couldn’t find great—

    Kawaii Gift Ideas!

    Last year I gave you some pretty cool otaku gift ideas! I was contemplating whether to give another round a try. But I decided to put a little bit of twist to it! So today I’ll be dishing out gift ideas—for those who love cute or kawaii(可愛い/かわいい) things like these! As I said last year— extend the season of giving by gifting your awesome friends and loved ones some of these awesome, awesome gifts! (It’s still not too late to—

    Best of the Best 2016!

    Last year (the time when my blog was experiencing some sort of identity crisis ), I temporarily replaced this feature of mine to “Fave Picks From this Mix” because I still did some book reading last year and I was in a sort of a limbo of how should I label everything. But I finally sorted it out and I think my original feature objective still fit the idea (not without alteration!) that I was concocting for this year. And—

    Goodbye three digit numbers…from now on, four digit numbers!

    Hi, dear self you have managed to post 1000 blog entries! Yes, this is your 1000th blog post! *cue starts talking normally again* I don’t know why I decided to spare a brief moment to party over this milestone, but I feel like it’s something worth doing. Last year, I was working on my goal to achieve my 1000th post, hopefully before the year ends (2016)! Turned out I can actually do it with even a month to spare! So—

    The me ‘before’ and the me ‘now’!

    If there’s one thing I’ll never get it right after six years of blogging is celebrating blog anniversaries! Like seriously what to do, what to do?! But do I really need to celebrate every year? Does it warrant a special day of “hey guys I’m blogging for this amount of time already!” Do you care? Do I care? Actually I do! I love my blog! I think I’ve said it plenty of times before that you probably sick of me—

    The secret life of a (book) blogger tag

    (With how things move around here at my blog, I decided to push back some my prepared content for later (as in April). But I do have another special otaku post set before I do my wrap-up! Things just zoomed so fast once second week rolled in, which enabled me not to do much blogging (I think I’ll save my whining for my recap). The awesome Alex of Books, Cats & Maths (I love how there now book/anibloggers out there,—
