This blog started out as an extension of my work then it evolved into a less ambitious, more personal site. Just before this new evolution, fifth–and I may lose count of the changes–this became theasianpopculturist project. Read more about it here.
But the soul of the blog has not really changed over the many changes. I blog mostly about my current pop culture interests and throw in my personal thoughts here and there. This is not a drama review or recap site, nor is it an entertainment news portal. It’s a blog on stuffs that interest me in general. Which may also mean I’d be blogging about regular topics like celebrities I like or news that amuse me.
In short, it’s all about the Asian pop culture that’s my cup of tea, or if you may, my Asian pop of tea.
I’ve been blogging since 2001 and it has become my stress-reliever so I don’t want to post anything too serious or directly related to my work unless it’s the fun side of it. Yes, I’m a journalist. This job allows me to travel and meet or interview interesting people. I’m also a fan girl so excuse the flailing sometimes.
The Asian pop culture scene is so vibrant and I am an eager student, fan, observer, critic, pundit… a pop culturist, if you may. We may not agree all the time but one thing’s for sure, Asia’s dramas, films, music, say so much about our own lives just as they have become essential part of it too.
What are we without pop?
So… want to have that pop of tea now?
Oh and yes, I have a tea ranking system for my posts. Read it here.
