I’m about to finish watching Stories By Rabindranath Tagore, which has some episodes directed by Anurag Basu— an anthology of some of Tagore’s short stories. One of my favorite episodes has been Mrinal ki Chitthi (ep19), which stars Amrita Bagchi. I’m usually really good with faces that I see in other movies, but I honestly just vaguely remember her face in Phobia and Meri Pyaari Bindu. I must be getting old.

There’s a series of photos by Shivaji Storm Sen. This is my favorite, tho~

Mamamoo has officially become the group with most albums in my music collection— officially 8 albums; but honestly it’s 9 albums (with a double Purple edition), plus a SolGam tape, a SolGam LP, two kihno kits, a DVD and a BR of Moosical. LOL

Once upon a time, there were five albums by P!nk, but there were also six albums by the BackStreet Boys, six Hanson albums, six Westlife albums, four turned to five Marit Larsen albums, five Salyu-related albums, five albums eventually turned to seven by BiBi [it became viral on Weibo xD], seven albums by Shiina Ringo, seven albums by Bjork— altogether, I have 6 Brown Eyed Girls-related albums but that’s three albums, a fancy collectible repackage and two GaIn minis. Phew.

Feelings. Feelings were had. Despite this divide of video/screen, I felt that. Faye’s that good. Imagine being there sitting in the PhantaCity studio watching a video of Faye Wong singing Dreams (梦中人) and, all of a sudden, Faye appears on the stage, right there, in front of your eyes. Woah. Shivers down my spine.

Truly a legend.

Look who’s playing her Solar Emotions LP

I’m a stan. I have decided to stan forever. LOL Well, at least a few years. A few years in this day and age is an awfully long time, which is practically forever. I’ve seen relationships that have lasted less than my two and a half years as a moomoo. xD

I’ve been a fan of Yu Aoi for a decade now [1][2]. I’m expecting my moomoo status to be just as long.

If they ever do an event here. I’m done for. LOL I’ve been wanting to feed them my whole moomoo life, as the Grandma Radish that I seem to be turning into.

Just finished going through Mamamoo’s Rooftop Live, and just got in the mood of finding drinks for Mamamoo’s Four Seasons, Four Colors project. Coz LOL Yeba saying the lime was a kiwi and trying to stab it xD and Whee-in’s mixology skills; and my children having a blast at their Red Moon and Yellow Flower cocktails. xD

Even though I don’t drink, I do have a thing for mixology— especially for non-alcoholic drinks; so I spent some time browsing the web to find these seasonal drinks~

First off~~~ Hwasa’s Yellow Flower drink: the Ginger Apricot cocktail.

Apricots are -supposed to be- in season in spring and early summer~ they’re sweet compared to other spring-y things like cherries, kiwis, lemons, kumquats or strawberries… and they’re kinda like peaches, which are supposed to be in season later. The ginger adds to the punch xD

According to rokz it’s made of:

  • 2.5 ounces ginger cardamom infused vodka
  • 0.5 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ounce apricot orange simple syrup
  • 1 ounce club soda
  • Pureed canned apricots

Whee-in, you’re supposed to add your liquid ingredients (except the soda, coz lol carbonated) in the shaker with ice, shake it to chill it, and then pour it in your glass (with large ice cubes) through the strainer. Add some pureed apricot, top with soda.

You could probably substitute the vodka (and soda xDDDDD) with non-alcoholic ginger beer. This is my favorite brand.
