…because this blog is six years old already! But I never got to do it for this blog before 😀 So here it is!
Hi! I’m Marianne, a 24-year old fangirl from the Philippines. <3 i'm a fangirl for the most part of my life; other parts include working, eating, and sleeping, LOL. Obviously, I'm more of the stay-at-home kind of girl as partying and socializing are not my thing. Heh. I'd love to travel to different places in the future though.
Let's get to the fandom stuff, shall we? 🙂
I've been a fangirl since the day I realized that I get too attached to fictional characters easily. I was probably 8-10 years old that time 😛 Books are my first love. I remember spending a lot of my free time reading Sweet Valley, Nancy Drew, and other romance pocket books. I LOOOVE sappy, cheesy, real-life novels. But shortly after that, Harry Potter came and I was hooked.
Being a kid from the 90's, music became a vital part of my everyday life. I adore music of any kind, and I also fell for the boy band bandwagon back then. Up to now, I still listen to their songs and I still memorize every lyric. Big A1 and Westlife fan here. Nope, not ashamed of that 😛 Aside from boy bands, I love OPM as well! I support Pinoy bands and my favorites are Parokya ni Egdar (Biiiiig fan!), Eraserheads, Rivermaya, Silent Sanctuary, Sugarfree, etc. 🙂
Fast forward to 2003 and I am introduced to one of the best things ever— Asian entertainment <3 I remember seeing these cute chinitos on television and wondered who the heck these people are. Ten years after (that's a decade! *gasp*) I'm still very much in love <3
*all photos are not mine :)*
F4– Jerry, Vanness, Ken, and most especially, Vic will always and forever be my first Asian love. 🙂
My love for these four is F4ever :3 No matter how many bands come, I will always go back 🙂 The show also introduced me to Barbie Xu who is definitely the prettiest girl in the entire world. For me at least 😛 She’s my favorite drama actress too.
Not long after, I got sucked in by the whole C-Pop and J-pop fandom! No regrets.
My favorite C-pop group is S.H.E. Others would be Fahrenheit and Show Luo, of course 🙂
Eventually, J-pop stars came and I was super happy to have discovered KAT-TUN! Ughhhh these boys stole my heart and made me love Japan even more! Even though Taiwanese artists are my first love, Japan is very special to me! It is my dream to go to Japan one day. I love Japanese food, fashion, entertainment, culture. Everything. So don’t be surprised if I talk non-stop about Japan and its awesomeness :3
Six of the best boys ever 🙂 I discovered Arashi before KAT-TUN but I liked KAT-TUN more. Hihi.
Aaaaand of course I LOVE dramas, animes, and movies! I can’t give you a list of all the dramas I’ve watched (yet) but here’s a summary of my favorite TwDramas and JDramas! 🙂
Taiwan: Mars, Hana Kimi, It Started with A Kiss, Corner with Love, and of course, Meteor Garden
Japan: Gokusen, Hotaru no Hikari, Orange Days, Tatta Hitotsu no Koi, Nobuta wo Produce, and Hana Yori Dango
In college, I started watching US TV shows as well. Back then, pirated DVDs (oops) were everywhere! There was a time when I can’t find a good dorama to watch anymore. I felt like I bought them all! Lol. So I tried watching One Tree Hill and after that, I got addicted.
Other shows I watch are the following. Currently, I download all episodes of my shows instead of buying DVDs. Thanks internet and external hard drives! 🙂
Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, The Vampire Diaries, ANTM, Awkward
The Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead, Glee, Pretty Little Liars, Teen Wolf
This blog will mainly focus on all the things I fangirl the most. Hope you enjoy whatever I can share with you guys! Sometimes when I feel like there’s no one I can fangirl with, I can always go to this blog and rant and rave all I want 😛
Have a great week ahead! <3
