Crayon Pop's Addictive Beatz!

As baffled as I was by Crayon Pop's skyrocketing popularity in South Korea after watching one performance video of theirs on stage, I must admit that this dance cover by some of the uniformed bodies of South Korea's most courageous was hilarious! The campy dance moves to the incessant "Bar, bar, bar~" lyrics just took the cake for me and hit a home run with it.

I dare you to watch this without smiling! 

Haruma Miura & Sato Takeru at SWV, Mabul in Sabah!

So apparently HARUMA-freaking-MIURA (Bloody Monday, Koizora) and SATO TAKERU (Beck, Rurouni Kenshin) was at Sipadan Water Village, Mabul in Sabah to promote a Japanese tour agency or something. Before anyone's ovaries explode, this was back in April 2011, 2 years ago. Now I wish I went to Mabul a whole year earlier, but I was doing my big climb up in Mount Kinabalu around that time.

So I just have these pictures to tide me over. I'm hoping that if they ever do come back again, it will be on Sabah's West Coast this time. Preferably Tunku Abdul Rahman Park. *prays to drama gods*









Mabul is a gorgeous place to snorkel and dive but some of the backpackers need to manage their wastewater and drainage systems better. I wished I could dive some more at Sipadan while I was there. Only did one day's worth of dives, not nearly enough! And my heart broke a little when I left, it was just that beautiful.

All of them have strong friendship themes, not so dissimilar from Japanese slice-of-life dramas. Though nothing is quite like American humor. With New Girl season 3 starting this week I'll be sinking my teeth into more yummy goodness!

As for the drama front, I haven't been watching any new ones since Dramacrazy went down. (Dramafever sucks.) Though I have been keeping up with recaps for The Master's Sun, Who Are You and Good Doctor. (BTW, what is with all the ghost-themed dramas? I have a hard enough time sleeping after reading a recap, much less watching it.) Dating Agency: Cyrano was the last drama I finished, which was so-so but had really lovable characters. I am still in the middle of w…
