Kisses and PDA at Taiwan’s 50th Golden Bell Awards

Can’t let Mainland celebrities steal all the limelight, so Taiwanese artists also deck out their gowns and jewelries for a dazzling walk down the red carpet for their annual television production award.

49th Golden Bell Awards Results (2014)

Now I remember why I don’t do award shows post as often as I would like. It takes forever to compile images! Beside celebrating the accomplishments of Taiwanese dramas this year, the highlight is the sea of pretty people showing up in expensive gowns and jewelries. BUT! A lot of gray and metallic shades today…

What’s going on peeps? We no like colors anymore?

The Way We Were: Episode 9 “Losses.”

Everyone loses something in this episode. And this drama loses me. Unfortunately, this will be my last recap for TWWW. Why? 1) I’m tired of repeating myself every episode. 2) The story goes in circles. 3) Not much to discuss. 4) I stop caring about the main OTP. They are infuriating.

Questions to ponder: If you were Jia Ni, would you forgive your best friend and husband for that one night? If you were Wei De, would you let the past haunt your present?

The Way We Were: Episode 8 “Role-play.”

I’m so happy they are happy. *puts on smirk*

A recap becomes a chore when I spend 10 minutes staring at my notepad without writing a single word in it. And this is exactly what happened. The charms of the first four episodes have disappeared for a while now. Instead we have a group of friends role-playing a character that they suck at. No, I don’t love you, but I’m just gonna look at you with googly eyes. Or I have already moved on, but I’m just gonna stick around when you’re sad so maybe we might have another one-night stand? Or I am strong and independent because people say that I am therefore I must be

So I apologize beforehand for this is not a proper recap.

The Way We Were: Episode 7 “The first crack of friendship.”

Honestly, this episode is quite lousy to me. The preview at the end of last episode is basically all the exciting scenes of this one and that is basically five minutes. The whole hour circles around the same group of friends having tea party at different houses. Worst is that they reminisce about the same things over and over again. I geddit. Can we please move on?

The Way We Were: Episode 6 “Unbroken Connection.”

I enjoyed this episode since I had a recent meet-up with a few friends and while many things have changed, we settled into our old jokes and niches in no time. I’m sure many of us can relate to the emotional highs and lows of our group of friends as they reunite after a long separation, for better or for worse.

The Way We Were: Episode 1 – 4 “Charmed.”

I finished all four episodes in a day! I wouldn’t call it crack…yet ’cause I wasn’t in a hurry to marathon them at the same time. But it just happened that I had time today and the sparkling chemistry between the leads is irresistible.

This isn’t a conventional recap but merely a summary.
