It’s unbelievable how quickly the year has come to an end. And though there’s still so many hours of un-watched films, we must all begin sharing our End of the Year lists.

As per tradition, here’s my 2018 music highlights. As Jocelle pointed out, might change drastically midway through 2019. LOL Remember when Su Yunying released an album on December 31st? Chinese people got no chills.

Happy listening!

Verve Magazine has a wonderful cover this month featuring Tabu — shot by Bikramjit Bose [Website][Instagram], because the promotions for Andhadhun [Trailer][1][2] are on full steam. I hope someone gets to scan it, ‘coz lol where to get a single issue.

Why Tabu Prefers Flying Solo.

Rajeev Masand also just posted a +40min. interview with Tabu, and has her overview her 10 favorite roles in her +80-film filmography. Her long-time favorite roles make it, of course. It makes for a great Beginner’s Guide to Tabu, except I’m not a big fan of Biwi No. 2 lol — Don’t judge me, I laughed so much more to Saajan Chale Sasural xD, and I was quite lukewarm with Cheeni Kum.

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.

Zico’s Artist isn’t honestly my favorite track in Television, but damn! It’s probably my favorite live of the album, coz- duh! Live band~ I mean, it’s almost impossible to beat any You Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook (유희열의 스케치북) when competing with a live band, but not even the Sketchbook performance of Anti or the MAMA one top it, because that’s the type of song you listen to at home in the middle of the night at 3-4AM.

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.
