More – and More! – Sunshine!

Wowza.

We received even more Sunshine love, you guys.

Admin A who hosts Top of the Kpops gifted us our 3rd nomination, while our dear friend Jaime, who hosts The Drama Noona gifted us our 4th.

On the one hand, we feel the lurve. We really, really do.

On the other hand, we can’t help but wonder if you guys just enjoy seeing us squirm as we try to answer your challenging questions, heh.

Whichever it is, we’ve got our game faces on, and are braving your questions with as much composure as we can muster.

Bring. It. On. Baby!

Sunshine The Second!

 

Guess what, everyone! The blog got a second Sunshine nomination!

Thanks to Indigo of Between Wor(L)ds for the love! And man, you DO ask some very tough questions!

I’m so pleased with myself now, coz after the blog’s first Sunshine Award, I’d told Lady G that I’d be getting her to play in future blog award type thingies.

Seeing Indigo’s tough questions, I’m mighty impressed with Past Me’s foresight. Coz I’m gonna need all the help I can get! Ha.

You’ll know what I mean when you see Indigo’s questions!

Pocketful of Sunshine!

Good mornin’, Sunshine!

You might’ve seen the Sunshine Award making its rounds in the k-blogosphere lately. Well, today it’s my turn to join the sunshiny fun!

But first of all, let’s get some context. (You guys know how much I love my context!)

I did a bit of poking around, and found that the Sunshine Award is given to bloggers who “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.”

D’aw~ That’s so nice, isn’t it?

Thanks to Snow of The Drama Corner for nominating me as a positive inspiration!

Now, let’s get down to business, shall we?

Liebster Shower [Round 2!]

So a funny thing happened. Liebster season snuck up on me when I wasn’t even looking.

When the first signs popped up, hinting that Liebster season was upon us again, I hardly took notice. I was all like, Well, I had a good go at that last year, and it was a heap of fun. Surely after 9 whole Liebsters, though, no one’s going to want to ask me more questions about myself. Right?

Wrong.

When I wasn’t looking, those Liebsters seemed to multiply in a little room all by their sneaky little selves. Almost like they had a will all their own. And now, I have a serious heap of questions to answer *starts sweating bullets*

I plead hectic Real Life schedules as the reason that I delegated the job of answering the Liebster questions to Future Me (hey, after watching so many time-travel dramas, you gotta learn something, right?)

So here I am, Future Me (er, now Present Me?) to the rescue! Let’s see if you guys can stick with me all the way to the very end, eh? I promise to make this as pain-free as possible ;)

And, thanks to all you sweethearts who nominated me – I feel like I’ve been rained on by showers of lurve ❤

Blogoversary Giveaway Winner! + Happy New Year!

Annyeong! Happy New Year everyone!! ❤

I hope 2014’s been treatin’ you nice so far!

I know, I’ve been a little bit MIA in the last couple of weeks, only surfacing periodically to answer comments. I’m sorry, you guys. I plead crazy-hectic-holiday-schedule. Both my Christmas and New Year weeks were packed to the gills with gatherings, lunches, dinners (or insert alternative meal) and other get-togethers.

On the upside, it made me feel really popular (ha). On the downside, I got a lot less drama on my screen, and a lot less time to chat with you (boo).

I didn’t forget the giveaway, though! And yes, it’s time to find out the winner of one gorgeous DVD box set of Queen In-hyun’s Man!

Gong Yoo on Running Man! [Squee Date Details Updated!]

So it’s been confirmed: Gong Yoo is guesting on Running Man, together with his The Suspect co-star Park Hee Soon. On 8 December! Which is very, very soon! Eeeee!!! :D

…And which almost every Gong Yoo fangirl or fanboy would know by now, actually.

So what’s the point of this post, you ask?

Well. Seeing as how rare it is that we get to see Gong Yoo on our screens at all, let alone on variety giant Running Man, this is just too momentous an occasion to let pass without a bit of fanfare.

So. We are officially gathering for a squee-fest! And you’re welcome to join us! :D

Worry no longer, my friends! Help is at hand.

The doctor, as they say, is in.

Giveaway Winner! + Gong Yoo Goodies for Everyone!

Wow. Time flies, doesn’t it? It’s already been 3 whole weeks since my Big Gong Yoo Adventure in the heart of Tokyo. Still so surreal, even now.

I’ve since gotten myself back home, and it’s been an odd experience settling back in, after 5 weeks away. For one thing, it’s just so nice to be able to once again understand everything around me! When shop staff & other service providers speak to me, I actually understand what they’re saying now. And! I no longer have to squint and ponder while reading product labels. Coz everything around me is no longer labeled in Japanese!! Ahhh.. It’s the little things, I tell ya ;)

Thanks for your patience, everyone.. By now, some of you might actually be wearing the same expression as Gong Yoo in the pic above, while waiting for me to announce the giveaway winner, hee.

Yes indeedy, I’ve picked a winner, as promised.
