Look who’s playing her Solar Emotions LP

ToT

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.

Damn you, Solar, you making me cry for picking that song for Solar Gamsung. LOL

Like- the song on its own is super sad, but it works well with its video… but the Japanese version? Literally, Nada Sou Sou. xD With the Shamisen, and the goddamn subs in Spanish. ToT

Makes me miss my dad so much.

Me acostumbré a rezarle a la primera estrella, al atardecer miro al cielo y con el corazón lleno te busco. En la tristeza y la alegría, pienso en esa sonrisa; si desde donde te encuentras, me puedes ver, yo viviré creyendo que seguro nos encontraremos algún día.

Soft OT4 Mamamoo~

Blessed!

Good luck on the comeback, Mamamoo kids. Red Moon, Fighting! Mariachi Maria la del Barrio Moonbyul, Fighting! Pole-dancing Solar, Fighting! Burn-everything Whee-in, Fighting! Just chilling in the tub Ahn Maria Hwasa, Fighting! Mamamoo, Fighting!

Also, my Japanese reading skills~ lol, thank you. And here is something I never thought I would say… bless Dispatch? LOL

Anticipate staying awake until Monday for Red Moon activities~

GINZA has just published a piece titled REDI no Shozo (レディの肖像, Portrait of a Lady) by Tomoko Kurose; and two black & white shots by Yasuhide Kuge. It’s a rare interview because it’s actually readable in Google Translate, lol. She talks about taking photos (she’s bad at it), what feelings she gets shooting movies and working on stage, how she perceives herself, a bit on her childhood, her work on voice-acting for animation… some talk on Penguin Highway and her speech for the Japanese Academy Award win where she talked about movies and being bullied.

Give it a read.

Amy the celebrity-endorsements-don’t-work-on-me is back XD and must reveal that now I drink much more caffeine than before (I blame Turkish coffee) and I’ve been drinking Soju. Damn it, Korea. And I begin talking about drinks because Yu-chan has a brand new sponsor in Asahi for their Asahi Mogitate (アサヒもぎたて) campaign. “Mogitate” means “fresh-picked,” and it’s the name of their new ‘ready-to-drink’ (RTD) product— Chuuhai aimed at women. The err… Drinks Association in Australia (?) has a really explanatory post on Asahi’s road to design the perfect RTD that women (and men) want to buy.

I didn’t know the beer market in Japan had been shrinking. This is first news to me. Recommended watch: The Birth of Sake. Also, you gotta read about the Japanese whisky market and prices. Japan and their collectors’ stuff.

Chuuhai, on the other hand~~~

I do wonder if Yu-chan still sponsors Kirin xD

Here’s the most recent one titled Mogitate and Summer Veggies Curry (もぎたてと夏野菜カレー)

There’s also a Making Of xD

The first one out back in early May is called Mogitate and Young Bamboo Shoots (もぎたてと白子たけのこ) after the break~

I’ve never learned so much about chocolate texture and color xD Even though my love for it doesn’t stretch to wanting to try a $550 bar. lol

I did get curious about Guittard chocolates, though.

I must confess that I like cheap cocoa powder, though. xD

Also, sharing that overdone Beginner’s Guide I did because I couldn’t make up my mind, LOL

Happy listening~ xD

I honestly don’t have the time to keep up with variety shows on a regular basis, but this showed up on my YT recommendations and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to watch Leehom on a duet with Han Hong. It gave me goosebumps. I love Shangri-la (心中的日月) on its own original version, but this arrangement for Come Sing with Me (我想和你唱) just gave me the chills.

Han Hong’s voice goes so well with Leehom’s. ToT

Also, DAMN~ I used to not give much for Hebe’s voice, but girl has continued surprising me all decade. I don’t remember her being much of a vocalist, but I’m shooketh with her performance of Angel Devil (魔鬼中的天使). I wonder if she found Julio Iglesias’ not-so-secret microphone stash.

Leehom also got better. Maybe they’re all getting better sound engineers.

I’ve been watching NHK’s asadora, Hanbun Aoi (半分、青い。), intermittently like I always tend to do. At first, Mei Nagano made me think of a grown-up Ashida Mana which made no sense… even though Mana-chan is enormous and the last time I saw her it made me feel like those parents who watch their children turn into teenagers in horror. lol

But now I was watching the most recent episode of Tsurube no Kazoku ni Kanpai (鶴瓶の家族に乾杯) on NHK Premium, and she was featured wearing an up-do samurai bun, white baggy clothes; so relaxed, enjoying her snacks, a dip of her feet in onsen water, greeting fans and playing other young girls. Dorky charisma, yo~ It takes a special ability to have people younger than you to “kawaiiiiiiiiii” you so sincerely. LOL
