2nd One OK Rock Concert in Singapore!

This post is a little bit late in the making, but as they say, better late than never? Though I'm sure a post fresh after the concert would have made me remember all the details better but I will do my best to remember all the nitty gritty details!

When I found out that One Ok Rock was coming to Malaysia as part of their Asia Tour I was over the moon! But work schedules clashed so I ended up going to the Singapore concert instead but I have absolutely ZERO REGRETS. Despite being considerably more expensive, it was an experience well worth it because I got to MEET the boys after the concert! How I achieved this Holy Grail of fandom, you may ask? I was one of LAMC Productions' (one of the event organizers) 10 winners of the One Ok Rock Meet & Greet competition on Instagram! The day I found out I won, I was in a bank, so I had to stifle my excitement but inside, I was doing cartwheels of joy! Anyway, I had to register and pick up the Meet & Greet passes at the concert ve…

1st Teaser Trailer For Rurouni Kenshin's Sequel Is Out!

When I heard the news, I could barely contain myself with glee! Next summer, the wildly popular franchise (of the anime Samurai X fame), is coming out with not one, but TWO movie sequels! The first movie was what got me obsessed with J-rock band, One OK Rock in the first place, you should really listen to The Beginning if you haven't already.

The two films are tentatively named Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire Arc and Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend Arc. A 30-second teaser trailer has been released and you can watch it below!



New cast additions include Tatsuya Fujiwara (Death Note, Battle Royale) as the resident baddie, Makoto Shishio, and my, does he look badass in the stills. The other cast additions I'm not too familiar with their previous work but the casting of Misao and Aoshi look pretty acceptable to me. They were two of my favorite characters in the anime and I'm so glad they didn't butcher the casting as they did with Sanosuke! Honestly.


Two movies …

Back to Basics

My, my, haven't I been a neglectful blogger this year? And one of my New Year's resolutions was to blog more but unfortunately, real life got in the way and it was all I could do to keep up with my other various social networks (drama-watching, sadly, has taken a back seat during this time). But don't fret, I've been keeping myself up-to-date thanks to the hard work of drama bloggers out there (may the drama gods be ever in your favor)! In the past few months, I've been moving house, catching up with friends, working, taking some time to see the sights of Singapore (more on that later) and spending a lot of time with family! It's been a roller coaster ride of ups and downs this year and I'm so glad I wasn't alone through it all. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my readers, family and friends and let this season serve as a reminder of why we do what we do, then reflect but not waste time regretting too much. There's much to improve on for m…
