[music] Will Pan & Rainie Yang’s Snore

There’s something very charming about Taiwanese drama theme songs and “Snore”, a duet between Wilber Pan and Rainie Yang, is no exception. It’s the theme for TIE THE KNOT with Cheryl Yang and Kingone (though charming the song may be, it won’t make me watch the drama). The introduction of the song reminds me of…

drama: AMOUR ET PATISSERIE (first impressions)

I rather like the alternative title of this PTS drama: A PATISSERIE WITH NO NAME, rather than the literal LOVE & PASTRY.     So obviously, it’s going to be about food, in particular, pastries. I’ve been craving for sweets myself (after missing all the delicious desserts when I was back home recently because I…

you put the boom-boom into my heart

and the award goes to…

dear God, thank you for Arashi

Sometimes I wonder: why are there idols? And I couldn’t help rolling my eyes when majority of them would say that they are there to entertain, when all they do is impose their scandals on us.
