This is part of a blogging-tag chain!  11 random facts about myself, answers to questions from other bloggers, & passing on the chain to some of my other Asian drama blogger friends!



11 Random Facts About Myself

  1. I’m a himono-onna.  Yeah, I have favorite stuffed animals, I randomly stretch out on the floor (on the carpet, it’s comfy), I chuckle to myself while watching TV or surfing the internet alone in my room, and I go around wearing sweats when I’m at home.  After watching Hotaru no Hikari, I even wondered if maybe I should try going “goro goro”.  SHH IT’S A SECRET!  😉
  2. I probably wouldn’t have discovered Asian dramas if it weren’t for anime!  I first got into the Japanese pop culture through anime, then through manga and j-dramas.  And of course, this spread out into k-dramas, c-dramas, tw-dramas, etc.  O_O””
  3. I hoard tons of screenshots from the dramas that I watch.  They number in the thousands.  >_>  *hides*
  4. In real life, I don’t display my spazzy reactions externally.  I am a rather stoic-looking person.  On my blog, I translate my spazzy feelings into actual words and I sound more enthusiastic than I look.
  5. I can’t remember what my first drama was.  O____O””  Most people can fondly recall their first ever drama, but my memory is blank.  I THINK that my first ever drama was probably a Hong Kong drama with Bosco in it, but at the time I was young and I didn’t even know that it was called a drama, LOL!
  6. I have a crush on Tony Stark.
  7. I think Takenouchi Yutaka is like the Japanese version of Robert Downey Jr.
  8. I dream of visiting Japan to see the sakura trees blossoming!!!!!!!
  9. I wish I could try on all of the pretty costumes from the Qing Dynasty dramas!  And pretty much all the other ancient Chinese dramas’ costumes too!  I especially like the hairpieces/hair accessories in the Chinese dramas, they are so beautiful!
  10. Sometimes I try doing the hairstyles that I see in dramas on myself.  It never works.  =______=
  11. I’m weird.


Questions from yourinsomnia:

Is there a fictional character that you wish you were like and/or actively trying to be like?

Hmm there are a lot of fictional characters I want to be like, but there are none that I have actually tried to model myself after.  In terms of j-dramas, I have always looked up to Amami Yuki’s character as Osawa Eriko in BOSS, LOL!

What is your last meal on Earth?

I wouldn’t care what the food is as long as I could eat it with my family.

What is that one thing you really wish you had time for (hobby, activity, etc)?

I wish I had more time to sketch and doodle.  I’m not great at art but I find it to be very relaxing because it helps me get out my emotions.  I always wished that I could have enough artistic skill & imagination to write my own manga/webtoon!  *W*

Do you know any extraordinary people? What makes them extraordinary?

Hmm how do you define extraordinary?  To me, an extraordinary person is actually a normal person.  It’s just that this normal person is someone who I can connect with and relate to.  Someone I can respect and really open up to.  One of my best friends is just this person.  It is like we are on the same wavelength or something.

Favorite place in the world?

My room!

One silly thing you did recently.

Spazzed over Itazura na Kiss, of course!

Bubble tea or iced coffee?

Iced coffee!  Yummy!

Questions from Bumbleberri (Updated):

Name one favorite television series you can watch over and over again.

The Legend of Zhen Huan, for sure!  Sometimes I can go long periods without watching it, but then suddenly I will get the urge to watch a certain scene from it.  I still haven’t officially rewatched the entire drama but….it will happen, I’m sure of it.

Stuck in the elevator with 5 celebrity crushes! Who are they?

OMG I can’t even decide.  Let’s aim for an international group, eh?  Yuan Hong, Won Bin, Amami Yuki (GIRL CRUSH!), Oguri Shun, Takenouchi Yutaka.

What’s a funny or awkward situation you have encountered lately? If you can’t remember, it can be earlier than recently.

Hmm just recently, I had a funny conversation with some other drama bloggers, Rosie & Cherry, who are in the Drama Club for Itazura na Kiss.  We fangirled over Furukawa Yuki together and joked around a lot, HAHA.  Individually we are spazzy in our reviews of Itazura na Kiss but….when we’re together, we are something else!

Italian, Chinese, Korean, or Japanese…

Hmmm I think I would choose Italian, I really like spaghetti, haha!

Do you have one bad habit that keeps persisting and you desperately want to conquer?

Procrastination.  =_=

I'm heisui, an Asian drama blogger and the creator of My Drama Tea. I love stories and writing, so I watch dramas and blog. I especially have a penchant for Japanese and Chinese dramas, and those hidden gems that are waiting to be discovered. Oh, and I'm Legend of Zhen Huan-obsessed!

  • LOL I loved the 11 facts about you! Especially the one about the hairstyles, because I have the same problem… Well, in my case it’s a problem because until some weeks ago I used to have wavy-almost-curly hair.. So, think of a daily bad-hair-day… XD

    I think it’s my first time leaving a comment, but I’m subscribed by e-mail and I read you very often. Nice blog you’ve got here!

    • Thanks! I’m glad to hear from you! Yeah…I don’t have normal Asian hair. T___T”” So the hairstyles don’t look the same on me as they do on the actresses. *sigh*

  • We have things in common too!! haha, anime brought me to drama! I feel like I graduated from anime to drama. Watching Shingeki no kyojin and realised I still like anime. You can never be bored of these things 😀
    Love the hairstyles thing you tried. I tried with chopsticks too. HAHA.
    I like things you watch because most of them are what I watch. Keep up the blogging!! XD


      Yeah. I also tried a hairstyle with chopsticks. It didn’t work, my hair isn’t thick enough T__T””

  • In real life, I don’t display my spazzy reactions externally. I am a rather stoic-looking person. On my blog, I translate my spazzy feelings into actual words and I sound more enthusiastic than I look.

    Haha, I like that description “stoic”, I will use it from now on! I think I’m like that too but people say I look aloof and intimidating.

    I’m in the minority of never having liked Qing hair or any Joseon era hairstyles. Partly because I keep thinking how much it must hurt to wear your hair like that….all twisted and with heavy ornaments. Also, not one to like any ancient Asian garbs aside from maybe, maybe*** kimonos (or at least I would like to wear one at some point in my life). I especially never understood the obsession with hanboks. Imo, they are the ugliest, most unbecoming forms of garments to have ever been worn by women (they hide your figure completely? make you look like an inflated doll? there is absolutely no variety in anything aside from colors?).

    • Lol I guess “aloof” could describe me too. 😉

      At first I didn’t really like the Qing hairstyles either but once I watched Bu Bu Jing Xin, I thought it was pretty. I guess it depends on the hair styles though, some of them aren’t very appealing.

      I also don’t really get the love of hanboks. I mainly like seeing them because of the really pretty fabric that they have. But I think they are a bit too poofy!! In general I like the ancient Chinese clothes the best!

  • Haha, nowadays, when I go outdoors, I usually wear dresses and skirts but once I get home, it’s a all about big, compfy clothes ( PJs are the best? >..<

    Btw, if you ever DO decide to draw/write a manga or webtoon, let me ( or rather your readers :)) know 😀

  • Congrats & I enjoyed the random facts! I have never attempted drama hair…most of them look too complicated to even try or just look like they might hurt. I recall Memoirs of a Geisha when they showed the wax and brushing it in. *shivers*
    I can do an anime hairstyle, sort of. My hair has a natural wave and feathering effect on it. If I pick my hair and don’t brush it, voila, the typical anime hairstyle with flipped out layers 😛 I love having easy to work with hair like that. That’s why I keep it short.

    There’s nothing wrong with being a himono-onna 😉 I think I’m one, too. I don’t get out much, lol. But I enjoy being home and wearing comfy clothes.

    • Omg I remember that scene in Memoirs of a Geisha too! It made me realize what they went through to get that perfectly formed hairstyle. O_O””

      *tries to imagine you with anime hair*

Blogging takes hours, commenting takes minutes. Thanks for your comment.
