How to have an Asian girlfriend. (And how to keep her).

Many people have said that they want an Asian girlfriend. But there are some important things to bear in mind, because it’s really easy to be caught out when you’re from too very different cultures. These things won’t be so obvious in the early stages, but I guarantee that after a while they will beContinue reading “How to have an Asian girlfriend. (And how to keep her).”

지금 만나러 갑니다 (Be With You)

This film is a misguided attempt to make a what if? romance. Starting from the fact that the two main leads are too young and good looking to be believable as the parents of a ten year old boy, the film is poorly directed by a director who wastes no opportunity to drown his clichedContinue reading “지금 만나러 갑니다 (Be With You)”

Diary of romance, part 11: Goodbye

I finally said goodbye to Miho tonight. She is leaving for Japan tomorrow. I decided against going with her to the airport for obvious reasons.

Diary of a romance Part 8

This is probably the last post I will write about xxxx. No, we’re not breaking up. We’re getting on really well and things are going from strength to strength. I simply don’t feel the need to broadcast all the details onto the internet. A few people commented that it might not be the best ideaContinue reading “Diary of a romance Part 8”

Diary of a romance part 7

I’ve been single and I’ve been in a relationship. I’m a different person when I’m with Miho. For example: If I watch a film by myself and I don’t like it after the first 15 minutes, I tend to stop watching. But when we watch films together, we tend to watch them right through toContinue reading “Diary of a romance part 7”
