“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
― Carl Gustav Jung
Rooted in the mud, the lotus rises to blossom clean and bright, symbolizing purity and resurrection. The leaves and flowers are borne high above the water. It is often compared to the enlightened being who emerges undefiled from the chaos and confusion of the world. The Blue Lotus in Buddhism is the symbol of the victory of the spirit over the senses, of intelligence and wisdom, of knowledge.
I sincerely hope everyone is doing well while I was on a long indefinite hiatus because of major writer's block.
So many things have happened in the past years and I really hope everyone is still going strong, enduring and persevering no matter how difficult the circumstances are because I believe there is a silver lining for every hardship. I may not know your individual stories but I hope you all know that you are not alone.
I started on this platform as a MinShin fanfic writer because I was greatly inspired by them, and while I was writing, I certainly enjoyed the interaction I had with the readers who were shipping MinShin just like I did. But even in MinShin world a lot has happened and PSH has now gotten married with a child on the way! Who would have known back then when I was loony for MinShin. Nonetheless, I didn't regret shipping because honestly it was like me eating dessert every single day without gaining a pound! (p/s: though I did suffer from a lack of sleep, but it didn't matter because I was a lot younger back then LOL) It was fun editing their videos, pictures and just thinking of scenarios for my story as a whole. I really cannot express enough just how much I appreciate the support I got from the MinShin community especially the readers of my fanfics. I am glad to know that you enjoyed my stories as you spent your precious time reading a story from an amateur (and not even a good one at that) writer who was having a word vomit because of MinShin.
But recently, I was inspired and had the urge to write a story for the fun of it. I was looking for a drama that was finished just so I could binge watch it; and I stumbled upon one. A thai drama titled My Forever Sunshine. Out of the blue, I saw the thumbnail and I was like, "Who is this actress?" I gave it a chance and I fell in love with her by the end of the drama. She kept me going because if it wasn't for her, I would have dropped the drama halfway just because I was annoyed with some of the other characters. But she kept me hooked! Even though I was cursing my off at some scenes. LOL. Not to forget, the palpable chemistry between the leads definitely helped too. Thus, here I am back with another story because of a talented actress named Kao Supassara.
It certainly feels strange and awkward to be writing a forward on asianfanfic again. But if you are in for a casual read, with the focus on a female lead, I hope you'll take another chance with me on this journey, even if it is not MinShin based.
