I happen to catch an Oct 2017 episode of Music Station recently. Only then did it dawn on me that I have been a fan of arashi for exactly 10 years this year!

OMG OMG OMG!

So fast, we are into the second month of the year of 2018.

Let me reflect on Year 2017. I failed my N 2. Well, it was kind of expected but I felt that if I had spent more time on it, I might have passed it. On second thoughts, even if I had passed it, it might have been marginal and due to sheer luck. It doesn't necessarily mean that I have a good grasp of the language. I feel like I should attempt it again but I can't seem to find the drive in me. I suppose partly is due to my job.. I spend on average 3 hour per day commuting to and fro my workplace. I start the day early and end it late. I have insufficient rest/ sleep. On weekends I have to help out with household chores. Often I feel like I am married with kids even though I'm not even married much less have kids. As a result, I really have less time to follow the Boys. One thing that really made me re-think my efforts was when they announced that concert tickets will go digital in Novemeber's Dome concert. I

In March last year, sekai no owari came. I was so glad I went for their concert! I really enjoyed myself!

Later in the year, I received good news about my job status. Technically, it should call for a celebration, but deep down, I wasn't excited? It just felt like... okay, thanks for the information. I don't know. The normal would have felt happy and excited. but I wasn't.

Brought my mum on a short b'day trip after a few years of not travelling together with her. My eldest brother also joined us; a decision I totally and utterly regret.

Fast forward to this year, one problem after another just keep surfacing at home. I'm tired. I really am.

"one o clock' came to my country as part of their asia tour. I'm very grateful that on their 4th time here, I got to catch them 'live' and at a very good venue at that! That experience was fabulous!

This year, will be the year, I try and re-connect with my friends. And in 2018, I wish for good health more than anything else.

well, S M A P is disbanding for REAL.

I had that feeling that it would be sooner or later... esp when they already have so many solo activities. tbh, I don't follow them that closely but based on a few quick observations, it seems so... ?

Whatever their future decision is, I wish them success in their new paths.

People often asks me why I love Japan so much... It's really a difficult question to answer.

I like Japan for their food, fashion, music....


On my recent visit to Japan, I felt that she has become too 'commercialised'; catering more to tourists. It is both a good and bad thing as I was sharing my sentiments with one of my friends recently... I happened to stumble upon this article and the last few points sums up my feelings towards the changing face of Japan; specifically Tokyo.

CNY is exactly one week away!

Can't wait for it. Much needed break. Not looking forward to the visitation part though. Wish I joined my friends for their holiday in Japan though...  Can't believe one month of 2016 flew by just like this!

I think I need to do a post of my list of Johnny's I ship.

To date and off hand may not be complete:

Arashi
T&T
Kame
Nagase
SMAP
KK (Koichi <3)
Yamada (JUMP)

Omedetou tanjoubi Sho-Kun!

Thanks for being who you are. You just don't know how inspiring you are! One of the reasons why i studied that course in higher education was because you pursued it a such a reputable university. I really love the gap that you have an idol. One second you are the glittering idol and the minute you are a serious newscaster. It's hard for non-fans to understand this gap. This is what makes you you. This is also what makes you so inspiring and influential. My wish for you is to be happy and healthy always.

It's coming to the end of 2015! My how time flies!

Have been getting busier and busier each passing year. Anyway, I made some adjustments to my life. Am glad I'll be having some sort of a mini break. Was wondering why I didn't think of going on hiatus for that previously.

So anyway, recently I had a bit of time on hand...  I managed to watch a bit more Music Programs.

Just finished watching FNS part 1. Realised that EXILE has quite a few good-looking members. They also have really good vocalists under J Soul Brothers. I'm hooked.

KATTUN will be reduced to 3 member soon. It's pretty sad. It was only recently that I have taken an interest in them and this happens.... Nonetheless, I wish him all the best in his future (though I really wonder what his next move is..)

My! It's been ages since my last post!

I have been a fan of Arashi for close to 6 years! How time flies! Haven't been following them as closely as I would have liked though.

Recently, I'm becoming a fan of Kamenashi Kazuya! Gosh! Wonder how come I have never noticed him before!

Am glad for some distraction recently. Life hasn't been very kind to me recently...
