Ok I’m stuck! As much as I love watching movies, there isn’t a particular “movie” that I feel the need to tell my friends to see, because honestly we all happen to like the same type of movies and they almost always watch them before I even did.
Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, White Chicks (if you’re looking for comedy), Star Wars Trilogy (I’m talking about IV, V, VI), Pirates of the Carribean etc – all these I would recommend to everyone.
However, If you’re going to ask me what movies that are “currently showing” in the cinemas that I would like my friends to watch (even if some of them already did) then I can name a few.
Return of Xander Cage xXx
Resident Evil (Final Chapter)
John Wick 2
Friends, please watch all these movies. Not only are they action-packed and have very cool fight scenes, all three have the very gorgeous Ruby Rose as well. And yes I’m promoting them because of Ruby Rose. Ha! ❤
Today isn’t exactly day 14. I missed doing yesterday’s post so to compensate for that I’ll be doing two posts for today – yesterday’s post and today’s post.
My ideal morning routine is straightforwardly simple.
To wake up at least two hours early than what I’m used to. Because I really move slow in the morning, I have to wake up earlier than usual to give myself more time to do everything I want and needed to do.
Drink a glass of water. Ever since I’ve learned of the great benefits of drinking at least one glass of water upon waking up – rehydration, fuels the brain, fires metabolism, flushes out toxins etc, this is something I’ve already started doing every morning.
Exercise or do yoga. I currently don’t do any sort of exercise so this is definitely an ideal morning routine.
Prepare and eat a hefty and healthy breakfast. Again, that I also don’t do much in the morning. My normal routine basically was to wake up, drink water, brush teeth, take a bath and dress in my uniform (and other things that involves getting ready) and go straight to work. Skipping breakfast is already a habit.
Morning shower. Always a must to start the day fresh.
Stretch out on a corner and read a book. To end my ideal morning routine with a little bit of “me time” before doing everything else would be perfect.
Hmmm… Actually I think I can be either. Mostly it would depend on my personal disposition at a particular day or night. Due to the weather, I am currently more of a night owl. Getting up in a cold weather is a challenging ordeal; it’s impossible to start the day bright. And if you haven’t notice lately, I only am able to blog during the night when I feel like my mind is more alert and blog-able. My brain is literally experiencing “brain freeze” because of the cold. Ha!
Anyway, I found this interesting bit of information just right now. It kind of made me rethink my answer. Ha! 😀
I’m just going to dive right into it and say Japan. Of course, as a young kid I already dreamed of travelling the world, but then Japan would be on top of that list.
I’m not sure how or why, but ever since I started to get hooked on anime and jdoramas in my younger years, I started to feel this need of going to Japan and see the country. Won’t you believe that I specifically learned how to use the chopsticks so that I could use the skill when I go to Japan?
So many things I really want to see and try out there. There’s this gut feeling I get that I knew something fun and exciting is going to happen once I set foot in Japan. Do you ever get such feeling?
Anyway, just to share a few reasons why I dream of travelling to Japan. (I just mentioned Japan 6 times. ok make that 7. Ha!)
Cherry Blossoms (Sakura)
Anyone who have read some of my previous posts would know of my love for cherry blossoms. Not to mention that there’s a very obvious cherry blossom gif when you visit my blog. They are, for me, one of God’s beautiful creations and something you think you’d only find in a fantasy realm.
FYI (an excerpt from google)
The cherry blossoms symbolize clouds due to their nature of blooming en masse, besides being an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. The transience of the blossoms, the exquisite beauty and volatility, has often been associated with mortality and gracefulness and readily acceptance of destiny and karma.
I dream of wearing a kimono and having my picture taken under a beautiful sakura tree in spring time. That would be a huge tick on my bucket list once it happens. When I learned that it is possible for tourists/foreigners to wear a kimono and walk while wearing it on the streets of Japan, I was totally over the moon. I can’t wait for the day I get to experience it as well.
An outdoor Onsen
An onsen is basically a japanese hot spring and very popular among the japanese and the tourists as well. Though there’s an indoor onsen, I prefer the outdoor one with a nice view of nature. There’s a japanese show I’ve watched before where the people are having a relaxing conversation in an onsen and behind them was a breathtaking view of Mt. Fuji. Like OMG! I need to get in there ASAP!
Anyway, a day in an onsen is an effective way to relax my tired bones and I don’t even care if I have to go naked – Japanese often talk of the virtues of “naked communion” for breaking down barriers and getting to know people in the relaxed atmosphere of a ryokan (inn) with an attached onsen.
FYI (an excerpt from google)
Onsen water is believed to have healing powers derived from its mineral content. A particular onsen may feature several different baths, each with water of a different mineral composition. The outdoor bath tubs are often made from Japanese cypress, marble, or granite, while indoor tubs may be made from tile, acrylic glass, or stainless steel. Particular onsens may also promote the special mineral composition of their waters, together with the healing properties these may have. Other services, such as massages, may also be offered.
One of my favorite cusines in the world is japanese food. I don’t think I need to elaborate on that. Everyone should try a good japanese food. It is simply delicious. Nom Nom Nom 😀
All Things Kawaii
I adore cute things and Japan is number one when it comes to producing cute stuffs. Whether it is a toy, food, outfits, shoes, accessories, cosmetics – everything you can think of – they certainly got it.
It’s my birthday month so feel free to send me cute stuffs. ❤

I adore Lizzy and Mr. Darcy. They are for me the perfect couple despite each other’s faults. It might seem that they won’t end up together but they did and I was pleased. True love does find a way to bring two hearts meant for each other.
Elizabeth Bennet, one of the two central characters in Pride and Prejudice is regarded as one of Jane Austen’s “most admirable and endearing heroines” and I could not agree more. I adored her character for the simple fact that she’s a woman with a mind of her own. I liked her character because of how I find her relatable plus I love that she’s a well-read person who is full of wit and intelligence.
Mr. Darcy, on the other hand, is the other half of Pride and Prejudice’s central character. He is the epitome of a “aloof, romantic hero”, which made him my Ideal Man for years. I was really rooting for him to end up with Elizabeth and was really happy when they did. I had so much feels every time these two characters appear in every chapter. Anyways, they certainly both are on top of my favorites list.
Hermione is one of the protagonist of the Harry Potter books. Like Elizabeth Bennet, she too loves to read. Already, I’m giving her 100 points just for that reason. Her extensive knowledge of different subjects has helped her, Harry and Ron in getting out of sticky situations. Her logical mind and upright behaviour, may have annoyed some characters in the books, but she’s a perfect know-it-all and I love her for it.
