Currently Preoccupied: Sankarea, Fifty Shades Of Grey, & The Avengers

Sankarea: Yeah, I watch a lot of anime on my spare time. I like watching anime with a twist in the story & Sankarea is one of those shows I can’t wait to watch. Here’s the plot of Sankarea according to Anime Ultima:

Furuya is obsessed with zombies. He collects any figurines, watches any movie, and plays any game with the living dead, and is even only interested in zombie girls. When his cat dies, Furuya begins trying to raise it from the dead using an ancient book of the occult he bought from a shop. But what will happen when he sees the idol of a nearby all girl’s school walking close to where he conducts his experiment, wishing to die and be reborn as a different person?

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James:

I’ll admit, I saw my coworker reading this during her lunch break, then she lent the first book to me to read right away because she just finished reading it. Let’s just say this erotic romance novel is a quick read since I always want to know what happens next to the young protagonist Anastasia Steele & her BDSM relationship with the handsome, & rich, yet controlling Christian Grey. Yeah, you get the idea.

The Avengers:

I just watched this movie with my mom in 3D & we both really enjoyed it! I know, we’re late, but this movie already made the billion dollar mark in box office sales. Can’t wait to see how the second Avengers movie will turn out. Anyway, hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Currently Preoccupied: Bally Total Fitness, Milk Tea With Boba, & Mysterious Girlfriend X

I’m starting a segment for my blog by listing things that have become my new favorites for the week, which I called being ‘currently preoccupied.’ This segment is a way for me to add personality to my blog.

Bally Total Fitness: My boyfriend (aka “O”) recently signed me up to join the gym. I’ll admit, I hated going to the gym at first, but when I had O go & train me so I can get familiar with the equipment & what workout to do each day. Since then, I’m more motivated now & I actually enjoy going to the gym, which also affects my way of life I guess (cutting back on junk foods, having more energy & stamina, etc).

Milk tea with boba (or tapioca): I don’t drink coffee, but I do enjoy me some hot milk tea with boba. What got me even more excited about milk tea was that there are places that has “self-served” boba & jellies of your choice! Now I’m up for trying other drinks with different jellies this time.

Mysterious Girlfriend X (or Nazo no Kanojo X): This new anime was released last month & now I can’t get enough of it! Let’s just say this anime made drooling sexy & addicting… Who knew saliva can determine the person that loves you most? Here’s the plot of the anime from Anime Ultima:

“One day, a strange transfer student appears before Tsubaki. Urabe Mikoto is an antisocial girl, whose hobby is just sleeping during class-breaks. One day, Tsubaki goes to wake her up and accidentally tastes her drool… And gets hooked on that! After that, he starts going out with her and gets to know her better. Her second hobby, as it turns out, is carrying around scissors in her panties and cutting paper into flowers…”

New York’s New NoMad Hotel

You know a neighborhood has made it in New York when it receives its own abbreviated nickname. The latest addition to the map is NoMad—short for North of Madison Square Park—which is also fittingly the name of Andrew Zobler’s newest lifestyle hotel. Using the Beaux-Arts style facade of the newly opened NoMad Hotel as inspiration for the interior, Zobler tapped French architect Jacques Garcia to complete his vision. From the inside out, the hotel boasts a distinctive feeling that mixes European hospitality with downtown NYC details.

Playlist Love: It’s Time By Imagine Dragons

I really like this song, but not so much the video. The band also has an acoustic version to this song.
