Hyped up with Jay Chou’s Exclamation Mark!!!

Jay Chou as the Hydrophobic Sailor~ LOL

I totally love Jay Chou’s album! ๐Ÿ˜€ I don’t usually listen that much to CPOP… I mean, I do listen to some songs every now and then but I can’t appreciate all of them. I get tired of it easily… and I don’t get any recommendations so I actually have no idea who are the good artists or what are the good songs. ^_^;;; Maybe it’s just NOT my jam. Not my kind of music. BUT Jay’s album changed all that. I was actually able to listen to ALL the songs in the album without skipping anything and at the end of it I WANTED MORE. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve been listening to it all morning and I never get tired of any songs. I’m lovin’ it more and more. ^__^ But of course I have my fave tracks – The world’s not over, Princess Syndrome, Piano Hurt, Mine Mine and Hyrophobic Sailor. ^.^ I can’t get enough of it!

I love the fact that I can hear the distinct sounds of more than one musical instrument in every song. And unlike other artists who’d stick to one genre, I heard more than one genre throughout the album. I heard pop, of course, ballad, rock, hiphop, RnB and even some jazzy-traditional-sounding music that kinda reminded me of Lee Hom. ^^ It’s definitely one cool and wonderful album packed with different genres and melodies that would surely get stuck in your head for a long time, you can tap your foot into the beat and it will brighten up your mood. ๐Ÿ˜€

Mastering multi-tasking.

I love multi-tasking. I think it’s a great way to get your job done and to exercise some brain cells as well. ๐Ÿ˜€

I normally multi-task at work by listening to music while doing my evaluations and browsing the Internet. ^^ Sometimes I even type my blog in between my evaluations and reports… or chat with my friends or download some movies…

So yeah. I multi-task. A LOT.

Nowadays, I’ve been ‘multi-watching’. haha. Definition: watching several TV shows and dramas at once. Okay, I don’t really watch them ALL TOGETHER. But I watch various shows and dramas in one day. For instance, I watch a movie, a Korean drama, a Japanese drama, a Filipino drama, a US drama, a US sitcom and a British drama all in one week. Oh, I also watch movies — with different languages: Korean, Japanese, Thai, English, Indian… ๐Ÿ˜€

So yeah, to summarize it. Here’s a list of what I’m watching, what I just finished watching recently and what I’m gonna watch in the near future.

Korean Drama:
1. Heartstrings (You’ve fallen for me) – 15 eps

I've fallen for this drama~~~

~ just finished this yesterday. ๐Ÿ˜€

2. Protect the boss – ongoing

Protect Jaejoong... errr... the BOSS ~ One of my favorites and the one I'm most looking forward to. It just cracked me up so much.

3. Princess Man – ongoing

The Korean Romeo and Juliet

~ great plot, love the actors, but the subbing team consists of TURTLES. Yeah, they’re kinda slow. So I only get to watch this on the weekends. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It’s like a Joseon dynasty version of ROMEO AND JULIET. Just so you know. ๐Ÿ˜€

4. Scent of a woman – ongoing
~ not yet started but I religiously downloaded every episode up to now so I can marathon it sometime… in the near future ๐Ÿ˜„

5. Goong (Palace) – 24 episodes
~ It’s an old drama, yeah, I know. And I’ve seen it before, yes. But that was the time when Korean DVDsEnglish subtitles still sucks like hell. ๐Ÿ˜„ So I’m re-watching it. ^^

6. Spy Myungwol – ongoing
~ there’s too much drama in this drama. I’m only watching it for the love of Mun Eric. But now I am so lovin’ it coz of the other guy– Lee Jinwook โค

7. Can’t Lose – will start LATER!!! ^___^
~ I am so gonna watch it! It has one of my fave rom-com actors, YOON SANGHYUN, in it PLUS Choi Jiwoo. The story is quite interesting and based on the trailer, it’ll be a riot rom-com. ๐Ÿ˜„

Japanese Drama:

8. IS ~ Otoko Demo Onna Demo Nai Sei ~ – ongoing
~ I don’t know (or like) anyone in this drama… Well, I’ve seen them in other dramas but I’m not a BIG fan. I was just so interested in the plot. An “intersexual” huh? It’s my first time watching this sort of drama. ๐Ÿ™‚

9. Ikemen desu ne ~ ongoing

Perfect Cast~

~ The remake of the Korean drama He’s Beautiful is so much better than what I expected. One of the best remakes ever. Shu-san really channels Shinwoo-hyung in the Korean version~

10. Ouran High Host Club ~ ongoing

Yosuke is just HILARIOUS.

~ live action of the highly popular animation about a girl who disguised as a guy to get into the school’s host club. The boring and ‘duh’ moments is totally forgiven thanks to Yusuke Yamamoto‘s hilariously animated acting. ๐Ÿ˜„

11. Hanazakari no Kimitachi e ~ ongoing

It's a good remake. So haters to the LEFT. ๐Ÿ˜„

~ another remake. It’s a good remake as well. I mean, it’s NOT THAT BAD as some people might think. I really like the actor who plays Ikuta Toma‘s former character — Nakatsu. The guy is ALMOST as hilarious and insane as Toma. ๐Ÿ˜€ PLUS, there are lots of new hotties to look out for in this drama.

12. Trouble man – 12 episodes
~ I just randomly saw this drama and decided I like the story. It’s sort of a mystery-suspense drama starring Shige of Kattun ๐Ÿ˜€

13. Triangle – 11 episodes
~ I just randomly saw this drama and decided I like the story. It’s sort of a mystery-suspense drama starring one of my Japanese actor crushes – Eguchi Yosuke โค

14. Misaki #1 – 10 episodes
~ I’m watching this for the love of FUJIGAYA TAISUKE (who plays SHU in Ikemen desu ne). They say it’s like a bad imitation of GOKUSEN, with the “YANKUMI” being a hostess or something… but still. It’s Shu-san~~~ ^^

15. Taiyou to umi no Kyoshitsu (Homeroom on the Beachside) – finished – 10 episodes

Not just another Gokusen rip off. ๐Ÿ˜„

~ I finally finished this one. It’s great to see the young actors here who are now starting to gain popularity and getting more ‘important’ or ‘leading’ roles… ๐Ÿ˜€

16. Majo Saiban (The Witch Trial) – 10 episodes

I'd watch any drama with 'witch' on the title... and with cute curly Toma in it. ๐Ÿ˜„

~ I just started episode 1 last night and I can say I’m soooo lovin’ this. I like any plot with “witch” or “detective” in it. ๐Ÿ˜€ AND it’s IKUTA TOMA~~~ with cute curly hair. haha.

17. Zenkai Girl ~ ongoing

~ I’m still thinking if I’m gonna watch this… I got bored easily even though it’s NISHIKIDO RYO… and YUI ARAGAKI… two of my fave actors… I dunno why… maybe I got tired of watching these sort of ‘feel good’ dramas…

18. Don Quixote ~ ongoing

WAH!I miss seeing weird and hilarious SHOTA...but I can't seem to continue this drama for some reason >_<

~ I SO wanna watch this. I was so excited to see this coz it’s one of my LOVES– MATSUDA FREAKIN’ SHOTA… but I dunno what happened to me after watching episode 1…. I kinda lost interest… same with Zenkai Girl… *sighs* My attention span isn’t the same as before. I don’t get satisfied easily now. T__T but… it’s SHOTA! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

US / American drama/ sitcoms:

19. How I met your Mother ~ ongoing

Barney is just HILARIOUSLY HILARIOUS! ๐Ÿ˜„

~ I’m so stuck on Season 2 T__T I really love watching sitcoms coz they’re so short and easy to watch. ๐Ÿ˜€ Barney is just addictive. His humor and crazy antics helps me get through a crappy day.

20. Criminal Minds ~ Seson 6

I'm so looking forward to Dr. Spencer Reid's amazing logic, theories and deductions. ^^

~ The DVD I bought won’t work on my laptop dammit! >_< So I need to download it… T__T I miss Dr. Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) and the rest of the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) over at FBI… ๐Ÿ˜€

21. Dexter – Season 5

~ I can’t seem to start this. I just feel so bad for Dexter after what happened at the end of Season 4… ooopppsss! SPOILER. Haha. But I’ll get to this some time… in the future… ๐Ÿ˜„

22. Victorious ~ Season 2

This Nick TV series really MADE ME SHINE~~~ I love it!

~ It’s my first time trying to watch a NICKELODEON series and I definitely made the right decision! I fell in love with this series and all the cast instantly! Especially dear AVAN JOGIA… hehehehe… It’s still ongoing so… I’m stuck on Season 2…. but I heard it’s gonna be the last season… T_T WHY????>

23. Hell cats ~ Season 1

~ Aly Michalka + Ashley Tisdale + cheerdance = ME LIKES. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m a fan of Step Up and Bring it on… so why not watch this drama? ^^

24. SKINS – Season 2

~ I so loved season 1 but I found out that Season 2 isn’t THAT great anymore… so I’m still thinking about watching this. Kaya Scodelario is โค though… ^^

WOW. Looking at these TV shows and dramas I feel dizzy now. I didn’t know I was REALLY multi-watching. Haha. Hopefully, I’ll finish ALL of these before the year ends. Haha. Wish me luck!
