Hey there pretties! I can’t believe how fast time flies these days. I swear it was only Wednesday a few hours ago. Oh well, it’s Friday already and you won’t hear me complain. Happy Friday everyone!

Friday Favorites #2: Week of 8/11

  • Sweet Bean by Naomi Kawase

Last Sunday, I attended the last day of the 2017 Japanese Film Festival in Cebu (EIGASAI) which they were showing the movie Sweet Bean. I watched the film with my good friend Janine and it was really heartbreaking. This story left me and all other viewers in the cinema in tears.

  • 4th Japan Education Fair and Convention

I found out about this event just this month and I can’t contain my excitement. 2017 indeed is a year for Japanese culture here in the Philippines. This one’s happening almost a month from now and I can’t really wait.

You can know more about this event here.

  • Lemon Grass – Vietnam and Thailand Restaurant

After watching Sweet Bean, together with my friend Janine, we scouted the mall for some affordable Japanese restaurant for our dinner, but we ended up in Lemon Grass instead. I am scheduled to create an article about the restaurant soon, so wait up for it. For now, feast yourself with these yummy foods we ordered.

  • One ok Rock (accoustic)

I always starts my morning by playing songs from these guys and I can’t seem to stop. The only distraction that I could think that worked out was by watching anime. Β And as you can guess, I am currently playing One Ok Rock’s songs while writing this article *wink.

Here’s three of the songs from One Ok Rock that’s been hammering my playlist lately:



  • Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 4

This one’s absolutely the best of all the best episodes in the Game of Thrones series. My! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time watching this episode. The scene when Daenerys rode her dragon fighting all the Lannister armies and their allies was so intense. Daenerys was so cool the whole time that I can’t help but watch it over and over again. I was also delighted in the reunion of the remaining Stark children. Now I can’t wait to see what will happen in the next episode.

  • Blown by the Wind by Jonaxx

It’s been 5 months since I checked out Wattpad and I can’t believe I missed out the completion of this story. And I guess it was worth it because this story sent me into another dose of insanity haha. You can read my full review here.

  • Something Wonderful by Judith McNaught

Something Wonder by Judith McNaught | Blushing Geek

It’s been a long time since I read historical romance and I’ve been meaning to read more this year, but my mood always betrays me (disappointed). And finally, last night I was able to read one from Judith McNaught entitled Something Wonderful. And my! I have to say that it was far from what I imagine. I am meaning to publish my review pretty soon, and I hope you can wait a little more *wink.

The list above were much lesser than the one I had a week ago but I have the intention of fixing that next week. How about you, any favorite/s this week?

    • I hadn’t watched GoT until the following night but the day after EVERYONE was talking about Daenerys. I was so worried they killed off my character. I was in a panic when they brought out that massive arrow. You just never know with GoT.

      • Hehe, true. That’s why I’m always cautious when watching new episodes because I don’t want to be caught off guard when another favorite character will die. Which I hope not πŸ˜‰

    • That food looks amazing!!!

      • Hehe yeah. My favorite was the bagoong rice, and I can’t seem to get enough πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks for sharing your favorites. I tried watching a few episodes of Game of Thrones and I just couldn’t get into it.

      • That’s what I felt too when I watched the first season, but when I get a hold of the story, I learn to love this series πŸ˜‰

    • Karen

      I haven’ t read a Historical romance in long time either. It’s not my favorite genre but I do enjoy them as a break from my typical reads.

      We went out for Thai food the other night and it wasn’t’ that good. So sad lol

      For What It’s Worth

      • Aww, so sad about the Thai food. Have you tried Chinese? I do love most of their dishes, so maybe you will like them too πŸ™‚

        • Karen

          Oh I love Thai food – it’s just that this particular restaurant wasn’t very good :–(

          • Yep, that’s definitely the restaurant. Atleast next time you know where to avoid πŸ˜‰

            • Karen

              They used to be really good but the quality has gone down the past few years.

            • Maybe because of the change of management or the chiefs? Too bad though

    • Yay. You have too! hehe.
      Thanks Geybie πŸ™‚
