Happy 8th anniversary and hoping for many more years to come!

It felt not so long ago that I put up the 7th anniversary post on the blog and before I realised it, today's already the 8th anniversary of Dorama World! Somehow, time seems to pass by so quickly especially when you are busy (which I think everyone living in this modern world would be too) but I have to admit that I almost forgot about today amid the daily rush.

Words can't really express how thankful I am for your continued support and for reading my lengthy reviews and news updates. I am glad for the fact that I've been able to post more drama and movie reviews in the past year compared to previously when I could only spare time to do news updates. I'm still trying to do more as I continue to catch up on my ever-expanding list of dramas-watched-but-not-yet-reviewed so please be patient with me in the meantime. I would also welcome recommendations on dramas you've watched and liked. I may or may not watch every recommended drama due to time constraints and personal preferences but I would still like to hear from you so that I can uncover gems which I missed somehow, unwittingly or purposely.

I confess, there were times when I had to stop writing a review halfway because it wasn't going the way I wanted. Maybe it was my mood or fatigue kicking in but it sometimes do take a sudden spark of inspiration or a good mood to write a proper review. Much as I am mindful of the pressure to keep up with updating the blog with new content, I keep reminding myself too that I have to enjoy what I am doing or else I might just take a hiatus again like what I did a few years ago when too many things were clamouring for attention at the same time. This blog is where I turn to for stress relief and reaching out to those who share the same interests in J-ent like I do. In order to keep this blog going for many more years to come, I'll have to strike a balance between being conscientious and not letting this feel like a burden.

Here's ending the anniversary post with a shot of one of the best cakes I've tasted recently. Too bad there wasn't a candle or this would have been a good birthday cake for the blog. ^__^ Once again, thank you for reading this blog and I hope to interact with more readers as we approach the 9th year mark!

Happy Anniversary!! I always look forward to your news and reviews. I might not always agree with your reviews, but if we all liked the same thing it would be a dull world. :)c

Thank you for all the well-wishes!

As for the cake, if you are in Singapore, head to Okada Coffee at 100AM level 3. This is their signature matcha cake.
