Book Review: 冷王的小蛮妃:绝色练金师


Hello everybody, today’s blog post will be on another chinese novel titled 冷王的小蛮妃:绝色练金师. I spent estimated a good twenty days reading this completed novel. 😉

Personally I really enjoyed the interactions between the main character Jing Lan and Han Ling Wang. Not to mention that their love story is filled full with sweet moments and crazy obstacles being thrown in their path too often!! 🙂

The story started off with how JL as first was being a good for nothing at home back in the ancient times. Her mother was dead after giving birth to her, while her father dislike her and didn’t bother to groom her up to become his successor. 😦

Everyone in the house look down on her and bully her whenever given a chance, even the helpers in the house would bully her infront of her sister. Her sister Jing Shi Xue was the big bully in the house. But because JL’s father dote on JSX, he let her have her way with JL. 😦

There was once when JSX tried to killed JL by getting the helpers to knocked her unconcious and proceeded to dumped her into a river nearby their family house. JL being a weak woman, she died. The magical thing happen when a soul from the 21st century went back in time and took over JL’s body. Therefore in actual fact JL actually didn’t “die”. 😉

From that day onwards, JL changed into another person. Those whom tried to harm her, would get their own punishment sooner or later. She started to took revenge against her sister and father. Not to mention those helpers that betrayed her once and again, long story short they all ended up being dead. 🙂

The moment HLW came into view was because he set out to traced his birth father’s location and found out that he was supposed to be in JL’s home. He searched through her whole house to no avail. JL refused to tell HLW the truth of his father’s location. In reality, HLW’s father was being bound inside JL’s body. 😉
They started off their relationship as master and helper. Of course JL was the helper in this case. But the more they got to know each other, the more they started to have feelings for the other. In the end, HLW confessed his feelings to JL and they started their love relationship to become a real couple!! 😉

The story proceeded with how JL went through alot of ways to help HLW’s father be set free from her body. She managed to set him free, but later on she found out that he was actually her own birth father instead. She was in shocked but choose to accept the fact. Only then did she understand why her “father” back at home only dote on her sister JSX. 😀

As the story continue to proceeds it shows how HLW always go along with JL’s ideas and decisions. He would never doubt her unless it was to protect her from any dangerous situations. The other characters in the book would always be amazed by how much the couple show their love to each other. 😉

It was definitely a good book for those whom are interested in reading a book on a female character with a superb brain and daring heart set out to embrace whatever adventure life was ready to throw in her way. Not to mention that the author painted a sauve male character playing the role of a powerful hero that sets his heart on a gold platter, all for the female character only! 🙂

Throw into the mix would be their few cute and entertaining friends, who would always be round the corner ready to surprise the reader with a few of their funny comments to make the reader feel more energized and more than ready to conquered the whole novel. 😉

I would definitely give this cute and romantic novel a good old 4.7 out of 5 stars. I totally enjoyed myself while reading the novel. I felt as though I was being brought along side the characters as they went through all their journeys. 🙂

I love how the author had their way of making the villians in the book suffer for whatever bad deeds that they ever did. Last but not least, they main characters got a happy ending. JL and HLW got hitched!! 😛

For those of you who would like to read the full story for yourself, go ahead and google for the title of this book 冷王的小蛮妃:绝色练金师. 😉

Have fun,

Book Review: My Marine Man


Hello people! I am back with a English novel book review this time round!! It has been some time since I last done a book review on a English book. The title of this cute novel is called My Marine Man!! 😉

I actually finished reading this book a few good days ago, but simply do not have the time and correct mood set up to write up a fabulous book review for it. Anyway I have all the correct attitude and mindset for it today. Here we go~ 😉

Zoe was from Maryland whom went to California alone to pursue her degree in Engineering. She was a shy and goody two shoes type of girl next door. Nathan was a marine man whom just finished a project based in Iraq. He came back to California to tried to put down his nightmare and haunting past he got while we was on a mission in Iraq. 🙂

The story started off with how the main characters Zoe and Nathan met through their running spot located near their respective home. Zoe literally ran straight into Nathan’s arm, after this little incident they introduced themselves to each other. After getting to know each other a bit, Zoe made her way home thinking about Nathan all the way home… 😛

Meanwhile Nathan proceeded to went for the morning jogging each morning trying to get another glimpse of Zoe… All to no avail as Zoe was down with a flu~ Another few days went by before Nathan finally saw Zoe at their morning running track. They started chatted with each other, at the end of the run Zoe decided to invite Nathan to her house for a simple breakfast. To Zoe’s surprise, Nathan actually agreed to this little date. 🙂

It took them another few weeks before Nathan finally got his courage to ask Zoe to be his girlfriend. Zoe accepted his sweet proposal and can’t stay away from him. They spend another four months together being couple before Nathan was being sent back to Iraq under the Marine’s orders. 😦

The couple was being separated by reality. Although Zoe promised Nathan that she would definitely be waiting for him in California while he was in Iraq under his mission, Nathan felt that he was wasting Zoe’s precious time on him. He do not have enough confident that he would be able to survive the mission while he was in Iraq. 😦

Once he made up his mind, he skype Zoe and broke up with her. It broke Zoe’s heart into a thousand millions pieces. Being a brave modern lady, she buck up enough courage to went to Nathan’s family home and explained that she would no longer be living in California. Since Nathan have decided that the two of them do not belong together, there seems to be no more reason for her to stay at California. 😦

The story proceeded till this portion, Zoe have already graduated with a degree in Engineering. She finally made up her mind and moved back to Maryland. Although Nathan’s family was upset with Nathan’s decision but there wasn’t anything much that they could do to stop Zoe from her finale decision. 😦

After another few months, Nathan have completed his mission in Iraq,  survived the horrible experience all over again and still in one piece. He started to regret his decision to break up with Zoe. He sat down his family and explained in detail his bad decision and the reason for making it. His parents encouraged him to fled down to Maryland and seek for Zoe’s forgiveness and win back her love again. 😉

He did just that. At first Zoe was unsure weather to forgive Nathan anot, she decided to ask for some time off for her to think through. She was afraid that Nathan would break up with her again if he was ever being order to go back to Iraq for his marine mission again in the future. Nathan was dejected but he sent Zoe an email that he written back when he was in Iraq and regretted his decision to broke up with her. The email includes his emotion and reasons for his bad decision made, he also seeks for Zoe’s forgiveness. 😉

At the end, Zoe decided to forgive Nathan and proceeded to accept him again. After a few years together, Nathan proposed to Zoe. Zoe accepted with a sweet smile. Not long after, they gave birth to a cheeky baby girl. The couple made a decision for Nathan to quit his job as a marine man and stay at home dad. Meanwhile Zoe would play the role of a breadwinner for this lovely family. The story ended with how Zoe managed to add in another two cheeky baby boys into the family. 😉
Personally I would give this sweet romance novel a good 4.6 out of 5 stars!! I enjoy reading how Zoe and Nathan’s relationship play out. Not to mention both their reaction when facing the other’s family members! They are just too cute to be matched together as a couple. I would definitely recommend you cuties to check out this romantic book! 🙂

For those of you whom are interested to read the full story for yourself, go ahead and google for My Marine Man under wattpad community. 😉

Hope you enjoy reading this cute book as much as I did. 🙂

Cheers,

Goodbye To EA Sales Team


Cuties in the first photo from left to right: BookwormMindy, Daphne, Daniel, Dustin, Geok Hong and Josephine!! We made the dynamic team!! 🙂

Hello people, today’s blog post will be dedicated to EA Sales Team! The photos above was being taken in year 2016 when Daniel left his post as Sales Manager. In his replacement would be Dustin leading the Sales Team under the title of International Sales Lead!! 🙂

I have been working in this company for a near two years. During the beginning I did enjoy every single day at work. Hey, I even look forward to going into the office to work during the weekends. 😉

But as usual, great things does not last forever. Once Daniel was out of the picture, things got kind of out of hand. As times goes by, things beginning to pile my way. Responsibilities getting more and more, sometimes it was getting out of my league. Although they did ask if I needed help and I decline all help unless for problems that I knew was within their capabilities. 😦

Some of the responsibilities was being shared among a few of us, yet most of the load was being pushed my way. Why? I did subtly hint and question the Sales Lead… The answer I got back was kind of dissapointing. He said the response or feedback he got back from the few other departments was my work was the best among the few of us. 😦

Did he actually thought I would continue to bite my tongue and grit my teeth through each and every day till it was time for my retirement? If he did, he thought wrong. I am not one who can stand such nonsense for long. And I didnt. I coolly placed my resignation letter on his desk. When they all asked me why I left, I simply told them that I wanted to further my studies. 😉

Since I throw the situation at you a few times and you were not able to give me a great solution. I would most definitely find the next best solution for myself. I am not an individual whom stays in a miserable group for long. I didnt bid them with a bitter parting. Instead we all bid goodbyes in a sweet note. 😉

I personally thought that I handle the situation very beautifully. My ex-colleagues till today still seems to be messaging me for my consoling them of the nasty and sticky situation they got themselves into. I left with a sigh yet in a hyper and thankful mood. Thanks for everyone whom once or more help me in any way. 🙂

Without them, I would never be who I am today. Whatever sticky or nasty situation or comments they ever threw in my way was a “pill” to make me grow better and stronger. And for that I thank them!! 😉

I may no longer be working with this bunch of people together day in day out anymore, but I guess I would always remember them. For their kindness, their trickster manners, the fun times we shared together and not to forget those taichi style of pushing all their workload to my desk and left for to handle all those irritating and troublesome customers and backend troubles!! ;P

Last not but least, a final thank you and goodbye!! 😉

Smile Always,

BookwormMindy 🙂

This book revolves around the main female character is name Xia Jin (XJ) and male character name Lu Bai Yao (BY). The couple actually was high school classmates, their interaction since young revolves around going against the wishes of the other. Although the reason why BY always tried ways to get XJ going crazy is because he wanted her attention. He wanted XJ to fall in love with him too. 😉

BY fall in love with XJ at first sight. But being a typical love story, XJ actually had a crush with another guy classmate name Zhang Xu (ZX).

XJ was excited with the blind dating her mother arranged for her at a restaurant once she knew that the guy was ZX! She was being banished into “hell” when BY came into view and thought of all sorts of way to spoil their blind date. 😛

After a series of happenings, XJ decided to get hitch with ZX. But before their wedding ceremony, XJ caught ZX going into a hotel while kissing his colleague. The sight of this affair broke XJ’s heart into a thousand million pieces!! Since she witnessed this scene together with BY, she cried all her tears into BY’s warm embrace!! 🙂

After crying dry all her tears, she made a decision to get out of the engagement with ZX! She decided to slowly accept BY’s love after knowing how this silly man have been by her side all these years in secret. He was always there for her whenever his help was needed! All his gentleness was being reserved for XJ only. This got her touched. 😀

I enjoy reading their love story. Not to mention their quarrelling is always a funny scene to read about!! I enjoy reading how BY always have XJ as his main concern. He always tried his best to protect her without her knowing. It was seriously sweet!! A puppy love happening from young til grown older!! 😛

Book Review: My Silly Wife/我的王妃还真笨


Hello ladies and gentleman, today’s blog post will be on a chinese novel which I just finish reading. The title of this cute novel is called 我的王妃还真笨! I spent a good two weeks plus reading this exciting and fun book!! 😛

The story revolves around the female character called Cai Xin Mo (XM) and male lead character called Hua Qi Se (QS)! The story started off with how XM was being transported back to the ancient times from the modern days. The moment she woke from the time travel experience, she was being chased by a chicken. 😀

QS witnessed the whole process of how XM appeared out of no where and literally fallen down from the sky. They actually fall in love with each other at first sight. Which they acknowledge or confessed to each other nearing the end of the story. 🙂

They became students of the same master. Together they spent their time together with their friends. They had a happy time together before the storm hit them hard and fiercely. There was a princess whom love QS and was jealous of how XM always got his attention. She deviously hatched a plan with her maid to cause XM being accused of a crime she did not carried out. XM was being forced out of their circle and was being hurt physically by their great grand master!! 😦

When QS caught news of how XM was being forced out, he went in search for her. After spending some time, he managed to locate her and bring her back to safety. He nursed her back to health too. They started to confessed their love for each other and decided to be together as a couple. 🙂

After a few months of being in a stable relationship, they decided to get married. After a few months of marriage, XM realised that she was pregnant with QS’s baby. They managed to give birth to the baby even when the evil princess tried to forced XM to drink a medicine which will cause her to miscarriage!! Luckily XM’s best friend came to her rescue and save her in time, she managed to keep her baby!! 😀

The story continues with how the couple got rid of the evil princess out of the picture for good. They continued with their happy lifes. It was always a pleasure to read how they communicate, always trying to make fun of each other. Whenever the other party was about to get mad, they would resort to acting cute to make each other burst out laughing!! 😀

I enjoyed reading this story very much! Therefore I would be giving it a super high rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars!! I love alk the characters in this story except of those evil ones; a good example would be the devious princess with her maid!! 🙂

For those of you whom would love to give this story a try and read it for yourself, go ahead and google for the title of the book: 我的王妃还真笨! It was supposed to be catagorize in humor, ancient times and cute interaction love story!! 😛

Happy Birthday BookwormMindy! (FY2017)


Hello everyone!! Today’s blog post will be my birthday post!! Just a normal ordinary day like any other day on my birthday!! 🙂

Nothing really special happened, just that my sister cooked me a fabulous meal filled full to the brim with her love towards me!! Thankful for all the love she ever shower upon me since I was young like a baby!! 🙂

Always felt thankful for the love my family gave me since young. Although they can be kind of control freak at times, I understand that they are coming from the perspective of trying to protect me from harm’s way, as much as they can. I thanked them that they gave me as much freedom as I could possibly get, their trust in me and for always having patience and understanding in me. 😀

They are my strongest support in this world, they are my everything! Just wanted to shout out to them that I love them with all my heart and thankful for their love towards me and always believeing in me!! 😀

The actual day of my birthday, we spent the day lazing around in my sister’s lovely home. We catch up on as much episodes of Taiwan idol drama as we can, gossip about the actors and had a heart to heart talk among ourselves!! It was an ordinary day filled with comfortable moments and lovely atmosphere!! 😀

Yesterday (Friday, 4 August) my colleagues celebrated my birthday for me at my workplace!! Just a tiny adorable panda cake for me, with a present wrapped in self designed tweety bird wrapper and not to forget a tweety bird birthday card all designed by them!! 😀

I playfully asked my colleague why get me a panda cake instead of a tweety cake? Her response was because she couldn’t find a adorable tweety cake plus she knew that one of my hobby is sleeping (I love to sleep early)! 😛

In the end they got me a a tweety bird t-shirt and a woodstock t-shirt!! Thankful for all their effort in creating the tweety bird card and writing their best wishes for me! We had a busy week at work, I knew that they created this world surprise for me within a short span of two hours, as we were so filled to the brim with our work!! Still thankful for all their effort and time, no matter how little it was being put into this little surprise!! 😀

After work, I met up with my childhood friend! We went for dinner and she passed me my present with a carefully handwritten birthday card! Thankful for the well written card with all her best wishes to me! 🙂

She even insisted to treat me to dinner, therefore I return the favor my treating her to our favorite dessert: ice cream!! We spent a good part of the short amount of time we got together to exchange our current situations with each other!! I gave her whatever advice which I deem useful and hope it helps her to make a decision which is suitable to her!  😛 
Last but not least, happy belated birthday to bookwormmindy! For year 2017, hope it continues to treat me even better than it is already treating me! Hope everything will go on even smoother, hoping that I will continue to be more bless and blissful each and every day!! 😀

To many more years to come in the near future!! 😛

Cheers,

BookwormMindy 😀
