From Ningin: In most American high schools, May is the time to bust out the yearbooks, go to prom and maybe say your final goodbyes. Everything done this month has to be memorable. It’s no different at Mixr High. Only, we’re not saying goodbye to you — nor are we an actual high school. We’re also probably won’t go to prom with you if you ask us. (We’ll sign your yearbooks though.) We just want you to have a Memorable May with Mixr. More »
From Ningin: I know many of you already do, but this February, we want more people to fall in love with us. Why wouldn’t you love us? We make you happy, we make you laugh, we’re always here for you, and most importantly we get you expensive gifts. We also like long walks on the beach and the Avatar movie. So we really want to make this February - especially this Valentine’s day - special for you so that you’ll always remember and cherish it. Life is so short. Let’s make the most of it together! More »
Leave it to me to have a serious girl boner on the one member of a Korean pop (Kpop) boyband who isn’t Korean. Of course, this doesn’t matter really. Thai American Nichkhun, or more lovingly known as Kun, runs with a pack of cute Korean boy band members called 2PM who can sing and dance well. Through Ningin, the other site I manage, I was able to see them live earlier this year, stateside. From then I knew it was all over. This girl boner would never go away. More »
So last night I got to test run my stripper shoes and I also decided I’d switch up my look from wild playful curls to a sleek straight style. What’s even better is I got to test run both at Se7en’s party at Circle with Ningin Fam’s Mia, David, and my home girl Christina, who DJ’s for Soompi Radio Club. I gotta say I’ve got sorta a mixed feeling about my hair and I’m still in love with my shoes. Check it: More »
When it comes to wasting time and procrastination, I think I’m a master at it. Well, maybe not, but I do have my ways of passing time in the most random ways ever. Here are some of my favourite ways to pass time and to avoid doing stuff I should be doing. These activities are so time consuming in ways that they even cut into my queued up list of fun stuff to do. (Ie: reading a book that’s been around for years.) More »
For my last 2008 “Fab Faves” entry, I’m going to end with a list of my reflections this year. Despite my health going kaput this year, I’m amazed by how much had happened in a single year! I hope you all had a great year! I’m looking forward to 2009 and hope it will be better than 2008!
Girl Gamer: Expanded my game selections for the DS. In fact, the DS is the only system I played on all year long! I even played games I never would have thought to play! (ie: Princess Debut)
Proud Nerd: Discovered that I graduated cum laude with a 3.85 gpa from my uni, to which my mother heard me say it as “cula” and “goon goh goo ma” (sweet potato in Korean). More »
This weekend I’m going to spending all my time at New York Anime Festival which started today. Even though it’s supposed to be calm, it was really busy for us because we were doing a Cosplay Photoshoot Contest which attracted a lot of cute cosplayers. I had no idea what to expect and I’m a little jealous/sad that I didn’t get to cosplay myself.
We took over 200 photos today which doesn’t even amount to how many we’ll be taking tomorrow. For now however, here’s a few from today that I thought stood out in my mind.
Note that I only picked girls this time! No offense to the boys but the girl in me has to represent. This in no way has any influence over the winners in the contest. Voting process will begin Monday. Good luck to everyone.
I was also told that most of the cosplayers were bringing their A-game tomorrow. More »
