Just finished Boku Dake no Madonna in 4 days! Thank goodness MU was being good to me. :D I really love the drama's soundtrack! I'm especially obsessed with 2 songs. They're essentially the same melody but different arrangements. I've uploaded my fav among the two onto 4shared where you can stream and download the song. ^^

Tenderly from Boku Dake no Madonna

Boku Dake no Madonna surprised me. I started watching without any expectations and loved it! Guess I still love romance dramas after all. Going through the famed Gekku time slot list in Wiki D-Addicts, I've plan to watch Last Christmas and Itsumo Futari de. Hope they'll be good dramas.

From the recent years of Gekku dramas, the few romance dramas that are decent for me would be NatsuNiji and Nodame. I suppose Gekku is past its golden age already and doesn't always translate to good ratings and good dramas.

Anyway, does anyone have any romance dramas to recommend me? My list of dramas whcich I've watched is here. I don't think I'm too picky but I usually avoid Ueto Aya or Ishihara Satomi or Ito Misaki or Fukada Kyoko dramas. Reason being I think their acting is kinda crappy and the way they act out their characters is always annonying. I don't mind older dramas but probably not those in the 90s. So recommend away!

OMG does anyone know of any place that has dramas uploaded onto MF? Or anything else that's download-friendly besides MU. I'm talking about older dramas, not newer ones which I know can be found at ourhour.

I was just 4% away from finishing downloading episode 2 of Boku no Madonna when my download manager decided to go crazy and says size mismatch! All that 2 hour + spent downloading it wasted. I'm thiiiiis close to being tempted to get a MU premium membership cuz MU hates me. Anyone wants to share?

Argh, at this rate I just might have to settle for even lousier quality of streaming sites. I dread that day. >____<

Yesterday, I went to the Hokkaido fair at Takashimaya with my mum after her dentist appointment. Much smaller than what I expected but it was related to Japan. :P\

We bought a lot of Hokkaido specialty food stuff like cashew crackers covered with various flavored powder like corn and curry just to name a few. I reached Taka much later after my mum finished her dental appointment so she went and check out the fair first. She saw a lot of people queuing for dairy products so she joined the queue. When she saw some people crazily buying more than 50 packets of this milk, and heard a lady say the milk is delicious, she went crazy and bought 10 packs of them. And a block of cheese.

The cheese is from Yotsuba which from Google seems to be very famous. I've not eaten it yet though. Hokkaido milk apprently is said to be creamier which is true. It's been a long time since I drank full cream milk though. If you don't like the taste of milk (like Magdeline), that milk is not for you. Good thing I don't mind it.

I bought a raisin sponge cake too but haven't eat it yet. We bought some batter-fried squid and octopus and personally, I prefer the octopus. We bought 2 kinds of croquettes too - pumpkin and creamy crab. The filling of the pumpkin croquette were greenish in colour and wasn't as nice as the orange flesh ones sold at ION but it's interesting they added pumpkin seeds to the filling. The cream one was yummy though!

For dessert, I bought dangos topped with kinako and red bean paste. I miss eating the kinako ice-cream previously sold at the Hokkaido ice cream store at the basement of Taka. :( Seems like they sold it for a very short period of time only as I had the chance to eat it once only. Maybe Singaporeans weren't too receptive to the thought of eating soybean flour but I love it! I think our local Muah Chee might go well with it.



I also bought my first wagashi (if you don't count dorayaki) Ate it today and it's yummy as expected! It's quite sweet so I see how it goes well with green tea and unlike other desserts, I think I can only handle eating one in one go. To be honest I'm not a fan of mochi-texture food because the floury texture makes me feel very jelat. It's only this year that I could swallow down snowskin mooncakes but even then, only the champagne truffle ones as other kinds like durian snowskin is still too jelat for me. Same goes for wagashi. If I eat more than one, it'll be too jelat for me.

Cultural note: I can't explain the meaning of "jelat" well but it's something along the lines of making your stomach feel so uncomfortable to the point of you wanting to throw up. Often time applies to food/drinks which are too creamy, floury, cheesy or oily.

Seems like the anime fair is coming up in mid Nov. Maybe I'll go down just to take a look even though I don't particular love anime. Might see some interesting things there. :P

Hmmm it's been aeons since I last posted here...can't help it though since I've started working so I'm tired everyday. The latest I can sleep now without becoming a zombie the next day is 1am. So I choose to spend my nights wisely on catching up on Arashi, arama, Big Bang, online shopping and DRAMAS! Just for fun, here's my rather long list of dramas I've left hanging and am trying to finish now. Not in any special order.

- Gakepucchi no Eri
- Nihonjin no Shiranai Nihongo
- Kaibutsu-kun
- Tsuki no Koibito
- Hotaru no Hikari 2
- Atami (Odagiri Joe's drama)
- Trick 2
- Dream Again
- Marathon
- Aikurushii
- Untouchable
- Boku no Imoto
- Code Blue 2
- many many more...

Oh, and I just bought this clutch/pouch from an online seller in Japan. :D Items at the website are all handmade including this pouch. Red is my fav colour and I like this design the most. I figured I can especially use it during CNY to carry my ang baos. XD I hope it'll arrive tomorrow otherwise I'll have to wait till Mon. :( Link is here btw in case anyone wants to get one too. (Pouch link)



Oh yeah, I received my Ohoku teacups too! They're gorgeous and solid. <3 The red cup is nicer as on the black cup, the river motif design is a little weird as it starts and ends abruptly. When I take a picture of it, your will see what I mean. Instead of using it to drink tea, I used it to drink the sakuranbo sake I stored in my fridge for 9 months. :P Sake was ok only though. Shall buy a pack of green tea bags tomorrow. ^^

*edit*

Added pics of teacups.


Twin cups ^^


Don't your think where the river motif begins in the middle of nowhere looks a little weird?

Sorry this post is pretty pointless. But my life now is really just work > home > dinner > internet/drama/online shopping > sleep. I have started to cook and bake again though. Guess I got more comfortable doing that at home now. I might bake either thyme crackers or brownies tomorrow night. :)

To end, my brother and sis-in-law are in Hong Kong now for a business trip...and they agreed to help me buy Kahlua and Baileys from Duty Free! Which means I can finally make a B51 cocktail! I'll need a shot glass first though. XD

*sigh* I want to start Japanese classes but I don't know which one to go to. Shortlisted schools are Bunka and Ikoma. My sister-in-law who has colleagues taking Japanese classed told her that Ikoma is more detailed in teaching hence slower than Bunka which is more like a crash-course.

I'm leaning towards Ikoma now since their weekday night classes starts at 6.50pm for 3 hours which at least gives me some time to grab a quick dinner after work. Their beginner classes are $2 cheaper per lesson but that's not important. Plus I don't want to just get the JLPT 4/5 certificate and stop learning so I might as well get my foundation strong. But Bunka was established a good 10 years before Ikoma and their special teaching method is patented which sounds mighty impressive.

Hmm I wonder if they have a 1 lesson session or will allow me to take a look at their textbooks and observe from outside for a short while their basic classes to see if their style of teaching is suitable for me.

Either way, the earliest I can take the exam is July 2011 if the schools have the July JLPT exam available. Otherwise it'll be Dec 2011.

Mmm...
