London, I’m on my way!


london 2Hi everyone!

So, at the last minute I decided to go to London for a few days, haha. Actually, I wouldn’t be going anywhere this summer since my grandma is coming over and I should be helping my parents out in the restaurant, but somehow my parents agreed to let me go to London! My niece came last minute with the idea to go to London and I said no at first, because of the above reasons. The day after my niece ask me to go to London I told my parents that my niece had ask if I wanted to go to London with her and they said that I should go which was really suprising for them to say and especially my dad. My dad is the most protective one and usually he wouldn’t let me go to London with my niece and little brother, but this time….WOW, I’m still very suprised, haha.

London has always been my favourite city even tho I have never been there before. I just really like their flag, the kingdom, the fashion, the lifestyle, the vintage side and et cetera, haha. I never really understood why I was so attached to London, but with this upcoming vacation I will see London with my own eyes and decide wether I really like it or it’s just my imagination. Anyways, I’m so excited to go!

The flight tickets are booked and our hostel has been reserved. The only thing that is left to do is packing and deciding where we wanna go hang out. If you guys know a cool place to hang out or a cool restaurant to eat, let me know in the comments below! I’d like to know and try it out. I’m open for anything, haha.

Of course, I will keep you guys posted about the things that I’m about to do. So, I will be leaving The Netherlands 17th August and I will be coming back 22nd August.

Loves,

Jaychi

July Favourites


goodbye july, hello augustHi there!

Wow, first month is already over and guess what…I am still consistently posting 3 days a week! OMG, I’m really proud of myself for being able to do that, haha. Usually, I’m not feeling it anymore after a few days, but I’m still posting. I think I really like this, but it does use a lot of time! There’s something I want to tell you all before I’m continue to the rest of this post.

After this month, my school is starting again and I have a feeling that I can’t post consistently anymore. I have explained my situation a little bit to you all and I really need to do my best the up coming school year since it will be a lot harder than it used to be so of course, I’m going to put a lot more time into school than this. However, I will try my best to upload at least once a week by then!

Favourite moment
4th Juy 2015, the lauch of my blog! I was and still am really proud of my blog launch. I really love the lay-out of my blog and what I like the most is that real people really do come over and take their time to read my blog! It is so cool. What even more surprising is that I am still updating and posting my blogposts on time! My blog already exists for 1 month! Woohoo~~~ Let’s hope for more great adventures and things to come on its way!

Favourite fashion item
I haven’t really posted anything fashion related except for the 2 sneaker posts I did. However, I still have some fashion pieces in my closet that I really like and wore this month. It is my long cardigan which I bought at the Pull & Bear store in Rotterdam! I wore it almost everyday, haha. This piece is very easy to style with even people who aren’t really good in styling can wear it fabulous! I wore it the most in the morning when I wake up. I sleep in a tanktop and shorts so when you wake up it is usually cold and that’s why I wear this to keep myself a little bit warm. I’ll show you a picture below and probably I will be using this in my Best Styled Looks post which will be coming up soon.

Favourite app
My favourite app at the moment is Episoder. Since, I have vacation right now I will be watching a lot of television shows. If you are watching a lot it, is very difficult to keep up with the last episode that you’ve watched. Some people watch one show in 1 day or 1 night, but I can’t, haha. Right now I’m busy watching The FlashSupernaturalBaby Daddy and Keeping up with the Kardashians. Some of you will be probably be like ‘What? Keeping up with the Kardashians?’ but I have my reasons for it and you will know why.

Favourite game
Hmm…favourite game…this one is a lot harder, because I’m not a game fanatic, but I do have a few games on my phone and I can’t really choose which one, haha. I actually love them all so I’ll just name a few that I like the most. I have Simcity, Alphabear, Subway Surfers and Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. I think I will be going for Kim Kardashian: Hollywood because it’s about becoming famous and getting into the A-list. I really like that, haha. I don’t really like the waiting time to refill my energy, but the game itself is amazing! I would say that you should just try it out and see for yourself, but I do recommend you to play Simcity because I think that a lot of people will like to play that one. Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is actually for just a few people who like the journey to become famous while Simcity is more like building your own city. It’s actually just like those The Sims games, but then with a city.

Let me know what your July favourites were in the comment section below! Thank you.

Dear diary | new opportunities


Dear diary,

Lately, there has been a lot going on as I have told you in the last 2 posts. I am so happy and lucky right now, because I got accepted for the special study that I was doing. This is school related again, haha, but you know how it goes in Asian families. School is very important and since my parents are like that I get a lot of stress from it so I need to let it all out and that’s where I got my diary for.

I really can’t believe that god or who ever it is still gives me the chance to have a better education and I’m really grateful for it. The first time I failed, but I didn’t really want to do it at first. I just did it because my parents want me to do it, but know I chose it myself and I got really lucky that I still got the chance and this time I will not fail again! This time I will be working hard and get my diploma for it!

Actually, I can’t really tell much about this, just that I’m very happy and so lucky to be getting the chance for the second time. Next to this I don’t really have anything else going on in my life to be honest. Unfortunately, I’m not going anywhere this summer, but I’m really excited because my grandma is coming over to the Netherlands! Probably I will going to Italy with my little brother and my grandma, but that’s still not for sure yet. I will be going around in the Netherlands with her. Just going here and there and guide her a little bit around. Now that I’m older I feel like I can take the responsibilities to take her to cool and nice places to look and to eat, haha.

Anyways, there’s nothing much left to say so I’ll be closing this part as that I’m very happy and lucky!

Hi guys! I’m so excited that my grandma is coming over and I’m so luck! I hope that you liked this post and let me know what you all will be doing in the summer!

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.

Thank you for reading one of my personal stories again! I hope you all will still like this 😀

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!

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,

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
