I wonder why I’m still blogging and watching dramas!

-It’s just lucky that I’m still here in the tvb blogging world despite I’m bored of TVB Series.

-My First tvb series were Romance Beyond 1993 and A Good Match of Heaven 1995. My first asian drama was Taiwanese Justice Bao 1993 which is great enough to get me hooked to asian dramas.

– The Last TVB Series I liked was The Four 2008. After that I just watch tvb series for the sake of it.

-I have no favorite tvb series in 2013 but did enjoyed Inbound Troubles and Change of Heart.

-I’m glad Dramafever is here or I wouldn’t know or enjoy kdramas.

-I’m glad to meet a tvb and kdrama fan such as Dapowerz and Lucy

-I realize that there are other priorities I have to keep up which leaves watching dramas and blogging as my last priority. Yeah fans got better things to do than watch dramas these days.

– I like ancient tvb series over modern ones but the recent ancient series haven’t been good.

-I’ve been bored of TVB Series since 2009 anyway. It is a surprise I still watch tvb series until now.

-The recent kdramas haven’t been appealing either. 2012 and 2013 wasn’t a good year of kdramas for me. The recent mainland dramas use too much CGI. The old tvb and mainland dramas were a lot better.

-We’ll see how long I will be able to keep up with this blog.
