Seeing as the holidays are right around the corner and knowing how people are so busy during this time, I decided to post my blog’s first ‘Year in Review’ early. ^.^
As I sit back and thing about everything I have done this year, I’d have to say that it has been fun. I’ve also gotten some bumps and bruises along the way, but that’s life right?
My travel log was super cool this year.
Going to Japan again, this time for my birthday, meant so much to me. Tokyo holds such a special place in my heart and I always feel like I’m home while I’m there.
When the tsunami hit Japan a few years ago, I remember standing in front of my tv crying and praying. Since then I’ve been there twice and knowing that I was almost unable to go at all, makes me treasure the island, the people and their culture even more each time I visit.
The Hello Kitty Convention in LA’s Little Tokyo was also another highlight for my travel log. I met a lot of awesome people there. It was nice to see that my HK induced craziness, was not mine alone. There.are.others. And they were there in droves. The convention sold out for all four days. I also got to finally see with my own two eyes, Yuko Yamaguchi-san, head designer for Hello Kitty over the last 30 years. When I think about all of the ill collaborations HK has done during that time, only two words come to my mind. Bow down.
This is the first year that I have listened to 95% K pop music alone.
90% of that goes to BTS.
The other 5% goes to K pop songs that BTS listened or danced to.
The last 5% goes to American songs that BTS listened or danced to.
You see where I’m going with this right?
It was a BTS year for me. Between their new album ‘Dark and Wild’, the promotions for ‘Dark and Wild’, the various magazine spreads, the ridiculously cute Bangtan Bombs, their millions of tweets and everything else, BTS has successfully taken the spot as my number one group. I absolutely LOVE them. Every.single.member.
My feels were absolutely torn to shreds when BTS recently performed at the MAMAs in Hong Kong a few weeks ago. They didn’t win either of the two awards they were nominated for, but they stole the whole dam show with their off the hook performances. They SLAYED and I was so proud.
I am a HUGE foodie. If the food is good, I.AM.THERE.
This past year, due to the location of my new job, I was able to explore a lot of new Asian restaurants. Thai, Japanese, Korean, Chinese and a few fusion spots. Cucumber water…who knew??? Hello Kitty Maki, yes please!!!
The only reason I am even able to barely fit into my clothes as I type this, is due to the amount of ungawdly walking I have to do on my way to and from work.
Who has time for that?! Certainly not me. All my time has been split between the above categories plus work and family. How could I possibly fit anything else in? Eventually, I’ll settle down but for now, I am happy in my space.
So that’s my ‘Year in Review’.
Geeze. When I write it out, it doesn’t seem like much but really it was so…so much.
I hope that you all have an awesome rest of 2014 and a very safe and happy holiday season.
Thank you so much for stopping by to read, watch or comment on my crazy posts!
