  7. I've been feeling like white tea today. My friend brought this one for me from China some time ago, so I just made it. I drink 80% of the day tea, so I'm trying not to post each cup for the sake of not spamming and still having something to post after a while. But this one is a bit more fancy than my average ones so I felt like sharing haha.
  8. Thank you! But honestly, I suck at languages too. And I speak them all to some degree, but not all fluently. I'm more of a mathematics and computer kinda person. It helps that Chinese and Japanese have little exceptions. Allows me to work more on logics. There is also many logic in the grammar and in the characters, which helps. For me, mainly vocabulary is difficult. Next to that, Dutch education puts a big importance in learning languages. It's good for mental growth and business (the country is mainly build on international trading, and it's economics still relies a lot on that). I actually
  9. I'm feeling like having something really sweet atm. Bubble tea is extremely hard to get here. In the bigger cities you have a few stores, but that's it. Even then, I haven't found warm bubble tea yet. I only found out hot bubble tea existed when I went to Asia 😱. Now I'm in love but can't buy fresh one 😭. Luckily, there are Asian supermarkets where I can buy instant bubble tea haha. This specific brand and flavour made me proud. When I got this one I only studied Chinese for a short time yet (and I still haven't studied long), yet I could read enough Chinese to understand the instructions, eve
  10. I'm from The Netherlands. Originally grew up in the countryside near Germany but now live in Kampen, a tiny city, yet the oldest in my country. What I like about my country is the freedom and diversity. You can do almost anything here and just be yourself without any real consequences, general social norms are very loose. I also enjoy the old historic buildings around me. I also like how we tend to have a somewhat high standard in electronics, causing us to have things like high-speed internet in almost any house, and be among the first countries to test new electronics and online services.

  11. Haha in that case I can savely say that there is a love related storyline, but it's a bit more complex than "let's try find a way to be together/to get his heart" like in many dramas (obviously not the only options used, and a huge generalisation of plotlines, but in general a common theme). It's also doesn't feel very drama like to me, more "American police shows meet supernatural" if that makes sense 😂. They're al time favourites for me. Especially these harem palace dramas. It might sound typical maybe, but nothing better for drama than putting a bunch of pretty woman in a pa
  12. I watched season 1-4 when I found them. Now slowly watching the first half of 5, but the long wait makes me a bit less excited than with the first 4 and by now I'm busy watching other stuff as well. Without spoilers, I would say at least half the show is about his character development, be it directly or indirectly, so it's a rather big topic. But in a good way, as it's also an interesting one. At least the seasons are short (10-16 episodes each), unlike those Chinese palace dramas that go between 70-90 episodes. In total this show has less episodes than those 1 season dramas
