Before I continue with this post, what does Liebster even mean. Liebster is a German word that means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Basically, a Liebster Award is given out to those bloggers that have less than 200 followers to encourage them to write more. Besides that, it has also become a great way for them to know other fantastic blogs out there :3

11 Random Facts About Myself:

  1. I scream ‘dieeeeeeeee‘ with passion and conviction as I kill cockroaches with a spray.
  2. Next to cockroaches, I hate ants the most.
  3. I love carbs. Rice is my first love ❤
  4. I hate dressing up. When I’m at home, I usually look so sloppy. HAHA!
  5. Recently, I started learning how to play the guitar. Hihi!
  6. My mom uses my Facebook account. I don’t really frequent the place. (if you want to reach me, email me!)
  7. I’ve seen BoA three times already. My first BoA encounter was during her Jingle Ball stage. Next would be during her fansigning event in Pasadena. And then the third time was during SM TOWN concert in LA ❤
  8. After watching SM TOWN, my awareness for K-pop broaden and in a way, it had been a way for me to eventually become a SONE. It was “The Boys” that really made me a fan.
  9. I actually don’t have any confidence when it comes to writing. When I was in HS, a friend of mine criticized me for my grammar usage. HAHA! But I guess I’m slowly getting over it and become more proactive so now, I share some of my written works online :3
  10. Fushigi Yuugi will always and forever be my most favorite animé of all time! I’ve seen the show more than 10 times and watched it in three languages – Japanese, English, Tagalog.
  11. Lexie-chan is almost my real name.

Answers to the Nominator’s Questions:

1. Why did you name your blog like this?

As I just mentioned earlier, Fushigi Yuugi is my most fave fave fave animé of all time. The story is about four maidens representing the four compass of the world (North, South, East, West). So err… As a crazy fan, I’ve always had this delusion dream that I become the fifth maiden in the story. So yeah. Please don’t tempt me to elaborate more on this or else I won’t shut up *A*

2. If you could have one wish granted, what would it be?

To go back in the past and choose a different career path. Taking up nursing was such a baaaaaaddddd decision for me to make at the time </3

3. A person(s) that inspired you and why?

Yuu Watase: It was because of Yuu Watase that I become so involved with drawing. I don’t think it’s such a surprise if I say that she’s actually the woman behind Fushigi Yuugi *wink*

Kwon BoA: She is seriously an inspiring person. At such a tender age, she faced the harshness of reality but got out of it successful and unscathed. Her journey as a singer was tough but being the pioneer of the hallyu wave in Japan, you can’t help but just really admire her and her perseverance. I know I was completely floored by her. And before I know it, I’ve been a fan for nearly 11 years :3

SNSD: These girls are the living proof that through hard work, dedication and faith, they are without a doubt gonna be the best. It was a rocky beginning for these girls (I mean, who would forget about the black ocean) but I guess all those challenges made them who they are now — Korea’s National Girl Group. Such a humbling story.

4. What do you like about my blog/me?

TBH, I don’t really follow any other blogs actively but Benihime’s blog is just really so adorable, cute and interesting. I love her fashion posts and music reviews. Oh! You should also see her drawings  — AMAZING! But above all, she’s just really a sweet girl that I felt an instant connection with her. Hihi! Let’s be friends for a long time~

5. A place you want to visit?

Japan and Korea! Oh my gosh! My dream place! One day for sure! Wait for me!
