That 10 Thai TV SERIES I Enjoyed in 2019 |

I have been an avid movie and TV watcher since I was a child per the influence of my eldest cousin, Sam, he lived with us when I was a kid and he babysat me by taking me into the living room to watch TV. It was usually anime of the Shonen variety like Dragon Ball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, or Flame of Recca. Many of my eccentricities came from him and his siblings. I've got plenty of elder male cousins since we have the misfortune of only having 1-2 girls in each siblings. That's a funny story for another time.

Anyways, my cousin also got me hooked on J-Drama well before the boom of K-Dramas I tell you. Now that I am older I'm trying to expand my horizon and I've stumbled upon the hidden gems of Lakorns.

For the unfamiliar, Lakorns are dramas from Thailand. They're at least very inventive rather than just naming it something like T-Drama, right? That might not work because there's Taiwan who also have their own set. Me, I watched Meteor Garden Taiwan version and loved it by the way. Going back, I am amused by the comedy, hyperbole, and tone of lakorns. It reminds me a lot on the way things are done here in the Philippines but on a bigger budget I might guess.

This is not the list of the best Lakorns out there because my viewing experience is limited. It's just my personal preference in those I watched last year. Also, this is in no particular order.

1. U- Prince
2. Love at First Hate
3. Cubic
4. Cupids
5. Jam Loey Rak
6. Kaew Tah Pee
7. Kiss the Series
8. Kiss Me Again
9. Mae Ka Khanom
10. Ngao Asoke

#Medievalathon 2020 TBR | Jesha is a Bookworm

Hello friends. I'm sharing my TBR throught this photo. More later since I'm on a rush. I've been busy playing State of Survival the last three days. I promise to be more indept later. Should I make a diary of my reading experience?
(UPDATE: Read my reasoning?)


The Rules are simple you just read books and from there you get your rankings. There are also extras for specific categories. You can get weapons and clothing with this.

I chose to aim for the Empress position. 7 books. I don't remember what I got last year but I did join. I know I wrote a blog post about it but now I can't understand my own notes. Granted I was only starting at this point. I'm going to be better with my wrap-up this year I promise. I think I read through my goal but I'm not one hundred percent sure.

I don't know if I can reach my goal this year since I'm not on the same reading phase I was. I've spent more time reading manga this year than books.

Anyways, I'm reading 7 books and for my wardrobe I'm reading a book with my favorite book on the spine. To take care of that I'm reading Cathy Maxwell's A Match Made in Bed. It's blue so it fits me. My favorite color is blue. I was actually thinking of getting either a book that has yellowed over time or a pristine book but I like this outfit much better. Badass Empress coming your way everyone.

The next one is weapons. I was going for a romance but I'm going with a shield. I'm not sure how many weapons I can have but I'm trying for three here. A book I have HIGH EXPECTATION which is Scythe by Neal Shusterman. I always wanted to read this book but I haven't started for some reasons. This seems like a good enough reason to do so. Next is a romance which is a bow and arrow. I love Historical Romances after all so this is a given. Then, twin swords, start or finish a duology. Another book long on my TBR is Girl of Nightmares by Kendra Blake. I'ts also a scary book I get a pet chicken from that one.

Anyways, I'm curious what tall hardcover is so I didn't chose that one. I wanted a horse but that's an alien term to me. If you know what a tall hardcover is can you share the information with me? Thanks in advance.

The Goodreads Tag | Book Tag Thursday by Jesha is a Bookworm


HELLO! So I'm starting a regular post on every Thursday of the month is my Book Tag Thursday where I'll be answering different tags for fun. I always enjoy book tags but I don't think I've done enough of them. This week I'm answering the Goodreads Tag.

I'll need to open my Goodreads. I'm there Jesha Sandig which is my real name. I'll leave a link here so you can check out my profile.

Let's start???

I Don't Have a Pretty Shelf and That's Okay | Jesha is a Bookworm

I always get envious seeing these beautifully designed bookshelves with plenty of books in them. I feel jealous that I don't have the collection or the space but as I started to post photos in Instagram this year and get a minimal yet positive response from my fellow book lovers I realized that its fine if I don't have a pretty shelf.

The thing that matters is that I read. And love it.

#Stepback Saturday | Jesha is a Bookworm


Stepback Cover is the inner cover within a book. It's not limited to romances but plenty romance books especially Historical Romances have stepbacks. The Instagram Romance community started claiming this as our own. Started by the fabulous Pink Cowl and Reads is the Stepback Saturday movement.

I felt that this is a marvelous way for the community to interact hence me joining it in a regular basis. I decided to write a blog post about it so that anyone not familiar with this can join in on the fun.

STAY AT HOME BOOK TAG | Jesha is a Bookworm


HELLO WORLD! It's a difficult time for all of us with the Covid-19 pandemic and the quarantine we are all in. Right now I'm not reading as much as I used to but I've been hooked with mangas recently.

Anyways, I was tagged by Aditi Singh over at Bookish Glamour.

This tag was originally created by Princess of Paperbacks, Madison. You can check out her channel to hear more about this.


WWE Releases Employees

The World Wrestling Federation or WWE just announced the release of their employees as a cost cutting effort during this COVID-19 pandemic. The sad news comes mere days after they were named an essential business in Florida and Linda McMahon the owner's wife gave monetary support to President Donald Trump. It's also during the Jimmy 'Super Fly' Snuka episode of Dark Side of the ring where allegations of murder charges are connected to WWE and specifically Vince McMahon covering up the murder.

It's normal for a company to be cost cutting but a company as big as WWE has the financial capacity to hold on at least until things calms down and the pandemic ends. People lost their job. It's always sad when that happens.

With everything going on I can't help to think that Vince isn't only doing this to cost cut but also to cover his ass for all the dirty things he's done. He bought his company to be an essential business for 18 million, he filed for bankruptcy in his failed XFL, he needs to save his image from the accessory to murder allegation.

The point of this post is a rant that I'm probably going to delete. The point is the independent wrestling industry is one of the industries impacted by the pandemic and now these people are jobless. They went to taping during this scary time and Vince McMahon should have been considerate at least after the pandemic is over.

THAT TV Thursday ANNOUNCEMENT



Hello! I'm a new book blogger and I've noticed that it's a difficult job to keep up with posting nothing but book review. I also spend most of my time watching TV and I do have opinions regarding them so I am announcing that starting this April 18th I am launch something I'd be calling That TV Saturday where I'd review, discuss, or simply plug shows that I've been watching. I see this as a new opportunity for me to get better in both my writing and reviewing skills.

This is a new venture for me and I hope that people done become too critical. I hope to use the same star format for this (5 star rating) however I am not sure with the particulars just yet. I'm sure it won't be all reviews since that will be tiring. Anyways, that's all I'd like to say.

I hope that you are all safe where ever you are. I'm currently locked in my bedroom due to quarantine but I'm sure it will end soon. I am clamoring to go outside and play.

PS: As of now I'm changing it to Thursday to make way for #StepbackSaturday. I'm working on the posts for this section of the blog. Stay tuned for more. I'm always open to suggestions. I have tons of idea but no way of implementing right now.

Blogging Using My Phone | Jesha is a Bookworm

Story time!!!

My PC wouldn't turn on.

I fixed it but there are lost drivers and it's sad. In order to make no data is lost I turned to my phone connecting my keypad to my VIVO y83 PRO.

My phone was bought in 2018 by my father while he was in India. It has 64gb built in internal memory and I learned how to use it for my daily needs. I use an OTG to connect my 2TB external harddrive to watch films. This easy access is efficient for me. I don't have a  working laptop since my Lenovo laptop is a logger and it is close to dying.

Anyways, I've never tried it but an idea formed in my mind. I've got to wrrite and I have an OTG readily available to me why not try and connect my keyboard so I can type easily.

It was easy.

No need to download anything else. I just connected my OTG to my phone and then connected the adapter to my keyboard and presto! Now I can write on my phone and post it online without a hitch. I realized that I can probably get a smaller keyboard so I can bring it with me everywhere.It's compact and handy. Now I can blog everywhere.

This is also a good news since I'm planning to put up a blog diary during this pandemic.
