2016: Closing Remarks

I know, there is literally only 3 months left to 2017 – at this point a post for 2016 seems pointless, hah. As unbelievable as it sounds, this post has been in the works for the longest time, just that it never made its way to the ‘publish’ mode. I was actually contemplating to forget about it for good, but in the end I decided to put it up regardless of how late it turns out (I apologize).

Challenge: Accepted

Gosh, I miss blogging terribly. My fingers are itching to hit the keyboard like bullets, hence here I am, accepting a challenge; just like how it all started SEVEN years ago (has it been that long?!), I am starting all over again through a 30-Day Challenge. This will surely bring back fond memories of those beautiful days, plus I’ll have something to write about instead of hitting my office keyboard out of boredom. I’ll be posting the excerpts on Twitter, while the long thoughts will be updated in this post. Dig in!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5…SIX

Oh hey, this is mimi aka thetalkingcupboard’s founder. You might not notice it but the blog has turned six two days ago. Time sure flies faster than a bullet train or the lightning these days, and I hate to admit that this year is the first time I’m late for the annual blog birthday post. Shame on me, but I’m not slacking without a reason, I promise! Anyway…I really hope there are still people hanging around here, although it’s kind of quiet with less posts compared to the cupboard’s heyday…

2015: One in a million

It’s already April (time really flies), and I thought I should sum up my 2015 with dramaland. My apologies for it coming so very late, but here’s the list of last year’s dramas I’ve completed and some thoughts about them. As usual, Korea has lots of titles to offer each year but abundance also means that really good dramas can be hard to come by. It’s almost a one in a million chance for us to find a show that can fully blow us away! However, that is also why I continue to be a drama fan even as time passes: because there are gems not to be missed 🙂 The drama choices we have seem never-ending now that there are cable networks (compared to just the Big 3 back then). Furthermore, 2015 is also the year I discovered some great shows outside kdramas!

“I am Five!”

Said the cupboard. I thought that it would be a phase, but it has come a long way to become my pride and joy. I thought that the cupboard would last at most two years before I went MIA, but the blog pulled me out of my lowest points and made me write, write, and write to distract myself. From a little space for me to write about dramas, the talking cupboard has become a big part of me that I cannot let go just like that. It’s not too much to say that this is one of the places I spent most of my twenties, and I intend to do so for years to come.
