Morning Run


IMG_0394Hi there!

Being in good shape and have a good stamina is one of my goals! So, last Sunday I took a run. I am a really lazy person and I am wanting to make a change into that. Lazy persons don’t get anywhere. That’s what I hear a lot. If you want something you have to grab for it, that’s one of the dutch/western phrases I mostly hear, but my parents (Chinese) has another phrase for me. When the fire is already burning on your butt, you’re still not running yet. They have a lot more phrases like these, haha.

What am I actually going to talk about in this post? I’ll be talking about where I’m running to, what I’m doing while I run and what I use for running. Let’s start off with the first one!

I haven’t run for awhile, but now that I have holiday and not heading to another country I think I will be running more often. I used to run just 4 kilometres, it’s not a lot tho, haha. And I take around 2 or 4 moments for a break. The important thing is to push yourself. If you are a person who gives up easily, which I am as well, try to set a goal for how many times you will take a break or for how long do you run and take a break or how long is your break or do you rest in your break or do you keep on moving. I’ll give you a tip. Do not rest in your break! Because if you stop for a moment it is very hard to get started again so while you rest, keep on walking.

Usually when I run I don’t focus on anything. Just looking around and listening to music. I just try to relax and make my mind empty. That’s what I do while I’m running.

Since I just started running not so long ago I don’t use a lot of stuff. I just use my adidas originals as running shoes and just some shorts and shirt and I also take a cardigan with me for whenever it’s cold or raining, just for certainty. Next to that I also use the runkeeper app. It is really handy! I really recommend it if you start running as well. It’s easy to use and it tracks down the route you are running, how much you have ran, your average pace, your activities, burnt calories, the heights you’ve ran and for how long you have been running. It keeps a lot of stuff! If you go for running you should really download this app! In the above picture it shows a summary of your work out.

For all the runners out there I hope this post might have helped you out a little bit. Let me know in the comments below what you use for running and what your mind set is.

Loves,

Dear Diary | Are we friends?


Dear diary

Lately, I have a few problems with my friends. It’s not physically, but a bit more emotionally. In the beginning of our friendships we were very close and our group started to grow and contained more and more friends. We became a big group of friends which exist of 8 people, but now as we all grow older I have a feeling that the group is breaking apart and the most of my friends is leaving. I don’t know if it is just myself being a little too overconcerned or is it true that this is happening. I don’t really mind if it happens, but the situation where it is now is kind of weird, because I don’t know if we still are a group of friends or that everyone is going their own way and we just speak time to time.

Not too long ago a few friends of mine graduated, but they didn’t invite me to the graduation ceremony, that gives me a feeling that I’m left behind or that you don’t want to be friends with me anymore, but the worst part is that my friend did invite other friends. I don’t mind about that, but you should have asked me at least, because that gives me a feeling that you still thought of me as a friend. We have been friends for almost 6 or 7 years already. I could have said no and I think I would have said no, because I was in my testweek.

I don’t really know what I should be thinking about this right now. It kind of affected my life and myself a bit. So, I don’t really care about them at the moment cause I have my own things to worry about. So, my testweek is done and I have to wait for my results. I have also mailed my teacher about the situation and he have sent my email further to a teacher who has a higher position and he will be making the final decision. I have also registered for a special study as the one I am doing right now, but then in 1 year instead of 2. This study is basically harder, because what I am learning in 2 years, I’ll be learning in 1 year. I really hope that I can redo my year or join that special study. That is my biggest concern at the moment.

My 3 favourite sneakers


Hi there!

How are you all doing? The first week of my blog went well and I’m still consistent with my posts! I’m proud of myself, haha. Anyways, I’m a big fashion enthusiast and fashion addict. I am ready to collect the latest and the newest fashion trends, haha. If I had the money…

For today I want to show you my 3 favourite sneakers that I have. In total I have 7 pairs of shoes and I keep on expanding it, haha. Those shoes that I’m about to show are not the latest trend, but I find them the nicest shoes I have and also still the cleanest, haha. All my other shoes are kinda dirty so it’s kinda time to throw them away or to give them away since they are still wearable. Okay, I’m talking to long right now. Let’s get into it!

Balmain x HM


Hi there!

I’m a big fashion enthusiast maybe you have noticed that already, haha. Because I’m a big fashion enthusiast I’m really excited by the Balmain x HM collaboration! I think my fellow fashion enthusiast know what kind of brand Balmain is, right? And I guess that everyone knows what kind of brand H&M is, right? Haha.

Every year H&M choose a well-known fashion brand to collaborate with. Last year it was Alexander Wang x HM and that was a big hit! Unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to get something because it was sold out so fast! I hope I can get my hands on at least 1 item for this year’s collaboration, haha.

Balmain is a very well-known high end fashion brand. So, Balmain is kind of expensive. It’s not just a brand where you can buy a lot of clothes from except you’re a Kardashian, a Hilton, a Carter-Knowles or any other celebrity or rich family. I’ve always wanted the Balmain biker jeans, but one time when I was in a store where they sell that jeans I saw the price ticket. Let me guarantee you, it was tooooo much! Haha. It was more than €400,- euros. I forgot how much it exactly cost, but it was definitely 3 numbers and above the 400, haha.

Back to topic. The collection will be available on the 5th of November 2015. I will put a countdown at the bottom of my blog so that we exactly know how much days are left.

Are you as excited as I am? Let me know in the comment section below!

Dear Diary | What am I supposed to do?


Hi there!

Before I start writing in my diary, I would like to explain this a little bit. I came up with this because blogging actually stands for talking about your day and personal life experiences. Actually, I have never really done something like this before so in this section I will be talking about my personal life, the choices that I make and the experiences that I’m going through. I am also doing this for people who could relate to some of my personal experiences, just to let them know that they are not the only on going through this. I hope you will be respecting and accepting for what I’m doing and if not, do not comment or read my diaries. Lots of love, Jaychi.


Dear diary,

I don’t really know where to start right now. So, I’ll just start with the school part. I’m actually really nervous about school lately, because I’m in my testweek right now (I should be learning….) and this testweek is so important to me. I’m right now  in my 4th year of secondary school (I think this is junior) and I still have 1 year to go until I’ll be done with school. I really need to pass this testweek to be in my last year or else I’ll be 1 year without school. Of course, that sounds nice, but I’m still young and I don’t have any certificate so I’ll probably end up without having a career and working my whole life in a restaurant or clothing store. I don’t want that. I’m a ambitious person and I want to have a career! The reason that I really want to go to school is not because of me having an asian background, it is just me as a person who wants a career and don’t want to end up in a restaurant nor any other low paid job my whole life.

So, the only subject that I really need to get a good grade for is music and Monday I made my music test and just yesterday I came to find out about my grade. Unfortunately, the grade that I got wasn’t good enough to get me in to my last schoolyear so I have to drop out of school. I had the opportunity to go to a lower level school, but I don’t want that. I’m happy where I am right now and I really want to go to my last year so that I can finally be done with my secondary school life. I’m almost 18 right now and I really need to get away from the secondary school. I should be in college right now.

So, at the moment that I realize that I couldn’t get in to my last year I immediatly emailed my teacher about this and I have asked if he could do something about it or let me redo this year. I really hope he could give me a positive result so that I still will have a chance of getting in to my last year and be finally done with my secondary school life.

I’m kind of in this position right now where my life can’t turn out how I want it to be. I really hope that my luck will be with me through this so let’s hope for the best, diary!

Loves,

Jaychi

The TCB Guide


TCB

Hi there!

Since my blog is new on the internet I’d like to guide you all around a little bit so that you all can find the right articles to read. I try my best to improve the quality of my blog so that it isn’t hard to deal with, but yet it to look cool. So, let’s get into it!

Home
From the moment when you type in thatchineseboy.wordpress.com you will come onto my home page immediatly, but when you are reading the articles or when there are a lot of pages and you are too far away from the begin page you can click on the header in the top. This will redirect you to the home page.

Navigation bar
I don’t know what it is exactly called, but I call it a navigation bar. The navigation bar is the bar below the header. In this bar you will find the About, Contact, Where 2 Shop and the bucketlist pages, but also the search bar if you want to search for a specific article. I think all those pages will speaks for itself.

Social
In the social section, which is on the right side of the screen, you can find all my social media pages that I have except for Instagram. For my Instagram you have to scroll a little bit down and click on the picture that is showing below the Instagram header. I have also my Twitter timeline on my blog so that you all know what I’m talking about on a daily basis, haha.

Recent post
For all my readers who doesn’t follow me, but does visit my blog from time to time, you can find my recent post right below the recent post header which is also on the right side if you scroll down.

Calender
If you scroll down to the bottom you will see a calender on the left side. On that calender you can see how active I actually am. You can see when I have posted anything and if you have missed out a day you can click on the date that you have missed out and it will show all the articles that I have posted on that day.

Categories
Usually people keep their categories in the navigation bar, but I’m going to do it differently. I have put it on the bottom on the right side. To be honest, I haven’t sorted out the categories yet, but the ones I have are Personal | Fashion | Lifestyle | Music | Travel | Vlogs but I’m not sure of them all yet. Since, I’m still in the beginning of my blog you all will experience the updates that my blog will be undergoing. If there is any upcoming update I will let you know through my social media.

I hope I have informed you all good enough. If you have any questions you can ask me through my social media of course or letting me know by sending me an email to jaychiwong@gmail.com

Loves,

Zedd X You


IMG_0367

Hi there!

For all the music lovers and singers out there. Today (actually a few days ago) is your chance to make your way out there in the music world. Zedd, a german producer/DJ, has announced on twitter to collaborate with his fans. How cool is that?!

To everyone who doesn’t know Zedd, shame on you! No, I’m just kidding. To be honest, I became a fan of him not so long ago as well, haha. I really love and enjoy music, but I was always very critical about who I am a fan of. I have always loved singing and till the day I still love it so I was fan of celebrities who have a great vocal and voice. I know that there are a lot of great singers out there, but there was only one singer who have caught my eye and my heart with her vocal talents and her way of performing and that is *drum roll* Beyoncé Carter – Knowles! Through the time Jessie J became also one of my favourites.

Anyways, I’m off topic, haha. Zedd is an amazing DJ/producer. He has made a few #1 hits and have nominated a few times as well. Since, I became a fan not too long ago I have done a little bit research on him. I came to find that he hasn’t been long in the music industry and already have done a lot of things! His career began to explode in 2012. Let me settle it for you.

2012:
I don’t like you – Eva Simons (produced)
Beauty and the beast – Justin Bieber (produced and co-written with Max Martin)

2013:
Aura – Lady Gaga (produced)
G.U.Y. – Lady Gaga (produced)
Donatella – Lady Gaga (produced)
Heaven – Namie Amuro (produced)

2014:
Break free – Ariana Grande (produced)

In 2015 he came out with his second album True Colors in collaboration with Selena Gomez, Jon Bellion, Troye Sivan and many more!

This is what he posted on his Twitter:

FullSizeRender

So everyone who can sing GRAB YOUR CHANCE! I’m thinking about joining as well maybe I will be recognized, haha (keep dreaming Jaychi!).

Thatchineseboy


Hi there!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Since, this is my first blogpost I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and my blog. So, let’s get into it!

I have always wanted to have a blog and write about stuff that I like and enjoy. I started blogging when I was at the age of 13 or something, but at that time I blogged in Dutch and I wasn’t really good at it. I have blogged for awhile and quit after it, but then a few years later at the age of 16 I started blogging again, but then in English. Well, that worked for awhile, but in the end I quit as well. I think the reason for it was that I didn’t have a lot of time to spend on it and I kept on procrastinating so I was active posting for a few weeks and then you wouldn’t hear or see anything from me anymore and then I quit. Now, at the age of 17 I want to be active and keep on blogging!

As you all know Thatchineseboy is the name of my blog. I don’t know how or when I came up with the name, but I find it very fitting and I really like it! What I do remember is the meaning behind it.

That in Thatchineseboy refers to someone and that someone is me.
Chinese in Thatchineseboy refers to me being Chinese.
Boy in Thatchineseboy refers to me being a boy.

It isn’t very special, but it has something to do with me. As you all might have seen in the name, I am Chinese and I’m actually very proud of it!

I think I have told you enough about me, haha. If you want to know more, you can leave questions below in the comment section or ask me on Twitter or Instagram. I have an open mind, so I’m open to anything and everything, haha.

Loves,

Jaychi
