Hi! If you're reading this, this means that you have stumbled across my little journal. I love new friends, but please, please comment here before adding me so that I know who you are. It would be great if we had something in common. I post a lot about real life, and I flail and fangirl a lot about my fandoms...especially ARASHI. XD 

Name: You can call me Katie.
Age: 23
Citizenship/Location: I'm an American citizen, as I born in America, but I'm Filipino, and I live in the south of Metro Manila in a village that can be classified in the States as the suburbs.
Personality: Hmmm. I'm a little bit like Sho from Arashi because we are both smart, and we FAIL a lot. And at times, a lttle bit like Aiba from Arashi or Tamaki, because I can get super hyper and cheerful. I am very creative, and I like to talk about a lot of stuff. I love discovering different food and cultures. However, I can get quite emotional, and I rant a lot at times. I'm also very stubborn, but I try my best to be as open minded as I can. I am a geek, and I'm proud of it. My main dream in life is to own my own Asian Restaurant so that I can spread Asian Culture more.  Also, I want it to become a family business someday.


DIANA WYNNE JONES BOOKS- Chrestomanci, Dalemark Quartet, Hexwood and the Howl books
JOHNNY'S ENTERTAINMENT:  ARASHI (my Ichiban is Nino), Ikuta Toma, Nagase Tomoya, Okada Junichi and Nishikido Ryo.
  • I got into Jdramas before I got into JE and Arashi. My sister recommended that I watch Hana Kimi, and from there, I liked Ikuta Toma, and decided to watch more Jdramas. I knew Matsujun because of Hana Yori Dango and Kimi wa Petto, but I didn't know that he could sing and dance as well. In 2008, I watched Ryusei no Kizuna because of Nishikido Ryo. I got impressed with Nino, and started to research on him. Plus, I liked the theme song. After searching around on youtube, I discovered the AnS corners where they would give love advice. After that, I became an Arashi fan. My first Kdrama, on the other hand was Goong, simply because my sister recommended it to me. What's also funny is that I had NEWS songs and ARASHI songs on my ipod, but I only used to listen to NEWS. Know, it's just ARASHI.

ASIAN MOVIES: I got into Asian Movies in my 3rd of HS, as a friend of mine introduced me to them by letting me watch BATTLE ROYALE. I also like My Sassy Girl, Windstruck, Studio Ghibli Films, Ao no Honoo, G@ME, So Close, Space Travellers and many more. I have another post with a list of Asian Films I have seen.
AMERICAN/WESTERN: Of course, I loved the  Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter movies. I also like the Indiana Jones Series, Galaxy Quest, Pixar Films, Donnie Darko, the Back to the Future Trilogy, Clueless, Pride and Prejudice, Disney Animated Films (because most of them are and will always be classics), and many more.

I have a separate post with a list of Asian TV shows and movies that I watch, and how much I loved them. Aside from J/K/TW dramas, I also watch some American shows, namely WHITE COLLAR, SUITS, BIG BANG THEORY, GAME OF THRONES, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, MODERN FAMILY, CHUCK, COVERT AFFAIRS, and FIREFLY. I occassionally watch CSI, Numbers and NCIS when I catch it on TV.

I started watching Anime when I was kid-Sailor Moon. Then I watched random episodes of suff like Vandread on TV. I also used to watch UFO Baby, Card Captor Sakura, Honey and Clover, Gakuen Alice, Absolute Boy, Ouran High School Host Club and Fullmetal Alchemist (the first season).
I enjoy reading different kinds of manga such as: Death Note, Black Cat, CLAMP works, Honey and Clover, Gakuen Alice, Ouran High School Host Club, Fullmetal Alchemist, Rurouni Kenshin, Nodame Cantabile, Megatokyo, Her Majesty's Dog, Goong (which I stopped because it got too depressing), Kimi wa Petto, Fruits Basket and many more.

I'm a little bit eclectic. I listen mostly to Jpop, Kpop and the occassional twpop. I also listen to Broadway recordings and instrumental jazz, when I feel like it. Sometimes, mainstream pop songs that I like also find their way to my playlist.
Jpop: ARASHI, Ayumi Hamasaki, Mihimaru GT, BENI, Namie Amuro, Aoyama Thelma, Utada Hikaru, Dragon Ash, May's, TOKIO, Ayaka, Nishino Kana,Perfume to name a few
TWpop/Cpop: Angela Zhang,Fahrenheit
Kpop: Big Bang, 2NE1, Younha, SS501
American/Mainstream Pop: I love listening to '90s songs. I also sometimes listen to Black Eyed Peas and Coldplay, and whatever catchy song that I'm not annoyed at that's playing on the radio.

LOCAL: Eugene Domingo, Claudine Barretto and John Lloyd Cruz .
JAPANESE (besides the JE guys I like): Matsuda Shota, Eita, Kaname Jun, Kobukuza Yusuke, Nakama Yukie, Sibasaki Kou, Kanjiya Shiori, Eirka Toda, Inoue Mao, Eita, Ueno Juri, Narimiya Hiroki, Oguri Shun, Maya Miki, Amami Yuki, Matsuyama Kenichi, Takeshi Kaneshiro,Mukai Osamu and many many more! 
KOREAN: Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Min Ki, Tae Min Hee, Chae RIm, Gong Yoo to name  few. 
CHINESE/TAIWANESE: Angela Zhang, VIc Zhou, Tony Leung,
AMERICAN/BRITISH: Joseph Gordon Levitt, Heath Ledger, Anne Hathaway, Colin Firth,Matt Bomer, Zachary Levi, Adam Baldwin, Summer Glau, Robin Williams, Meryl Streep, Jude Law, Robert Downey Jr., Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Audrey Hepburn, Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart
Kudo Kankuro
I am a bookworm. I love reading books, especially if it's fantasy or sci-fi. As long as it's a good read, I will read it. I also love mystery books, and I consider Sherlock Holmes as one of the best fictional detectives of all time. 

Other Stuff: 
I have been diagnosed with Residual Asperger's, meaning that I still have small remnants of they syndrome. Most of the time, it manifests in my ability to talk on and on about certain topics that I love, and that I do have difficulty sometimes interacting with people, and processing some emotions and stuff. I get into trouble sometimes because there are many times that I miss social or emotional cues. However, I consider myself lucky since I don't need medication. If you want to know more,you can check this out. Also, music really calms me down. :D  
Also, I'm the eldest of five kids...ages ranging from 23 (me) all the way to eleven (the youngest boy)

I think we have a lot in common.

I'm addicted to them, too.
With kpop, I listen to some bands, in particular, 2NE1, Big Bang, Super Junior, Gummy, Younha, BOA, EPIK HIGH. My level of fangirling for them is only on the listening level, but lately, I've been getting back to Epik High, and finally listening to solos of Taeyang. I don't fangirl them as much as I do ARASHI, because being a full time ARASHI fangirl consumes most of my fandom stuff. XD But, I definitely do appreciate them. :D

SUPER JUNIOR~~~~ *does a dance* :D lol Super Junior pretty much consumes 80% of my fangirling activities lol.

Do you have a MDL?

I haven't listened to any of their latest stuff though...been on a Big Bang, Epik High kick as of late. :D
My drama list?
Yes, I got an acoount there recently, and I'm doing my list over there slowly. It stalls a lot so I end up doing other stuff first. XD But definitely going to complete it soon. I always say that I'm going to watch Kdramas...then I end up watching a jdrama instead. As much as I love kdramas, sometimes the length of the series and the fact that it's one hour long per episode makes me lazy to go and watch kdramas. :D

I've been wanting to watch Nagareboshi for some time now. I heard that it was good. :D
I could never hate Super Junior. I really like their music. :D I think that they are the only SM Entertainment group that I have stuck with, so yay! :D
