Love really moves in mysterious ways. Unknowingly, a man saved the life of her future wife after donating blood 11 years ago. It really comes to mind that God really has his own plans for us.
A Taiwanese glutinous rice dumpling seller named Lian believed that one of the best things he/we could do to save somebody else’s life is by donating blood.
In his hometown in Hsinchu, a city in Taiwan, he started donating blood since he was 20 years old, up until this day.
A woman surnamed Lim met an accident way back in 2007 and she needed eight bags of blood and two bags of platelets for transfusion due to the failure of her body’s blood clotting mechanism. And she was so grateful to several blood donors who made her survive the accident.
After seven years, while managing her family business, Lim met the glutinous rice dumpling seller and they both fell in love.
The couple then got married in March 2018 but only God knew that they have more than a deeper connection.
One day, after talking about the importance of blood donation and how it saves lives, Lim remembered her accident and how the blood donors saved her life. So, she decided to look for the donors and thank them even if it was over a decade after.
Due to confidentiality policy, the hospital and the blood banks would not tell her about the donors’ name. But she managed to convince one of the blood banks to reveal the names of the donors who helped her.
While browsing out some of the names listed, it caught her attention that one was surnamed ‘Lian’. As she gave her husband’s identification number to one of the staff, she was shocked that she knew the identification number.
“How did you know that?” the staff asked, stunned that this woman knew the man’s identification number.
Lim explained that the guy is now her husband! Wow.
After knowing this, Lim now joins her husband in the advocacy to donate blood periodically.
And Lian now uses his wife’s story to tell people that donating blood as this might be the best way to find a wife.
A Singaporean woman could have ended her life as 2017 ends its toll on December 28, lunchtime. Reports said that the 37-year-old woman attempted to jump off a multi-storey carpark in Taoyuan City, Taiwan.
The police department near the area instantly had a call about the commotion. They immediately went to the scene and found the woman ‘standing on the roof of the fifth floor’. A fire engine with a ladder was brought to a railing in Zhongli District’s Yanping Road, but they were unsuccessful to get near her.
After minutes of argument and several attempts, the police were able to rescue the suicidal woman. Her surname was the only one that got disclosed by the authorities.
Referred to Chew, the woman said that she flew from Singapore to Taiwan just to meet up with her ‘online lover’. The lover decided to bail on her, and she did not take it lightly.
Taiwanese Police have notified the victim’s family and will soon report to them. In the meantime, Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs vowed to help the lady and her family.

It is remembered that Taiwan became a dream destination for Filipinos when Meteor Garden hit the Philippine craze in 2001. Aside from the fact that Taiwan is very close to our lands, we just want to visit the locations of our favorite Asianovela.
You don’t really need some refreshers from the series, do you?
After more than a decade, Suzanne Dolorito has achieved our long-time goal after she went for a trip to Taiwan with her friends. Being an avid Meteor Garden fan, they came up with a special itinerary for their adventure.
They relived each iconic scene of the series by taking a photo of a still with the setting as the backdrop. I literally went from fangirling to envying her Taiwan adventure. Imagine, the efforts of retracing each scene? They deserve a trophy for it.
The group even traveled to Chiayi, South Taiwan just to visit the Ying De University where Shan Cai and the F4 studied in the series. From the locker scene to the corridors of the university, they were able to trace down same exact settings.
After the post went viral, Barbie Hsu herself got the memo and commented on Dolorito’s Instagram post. Hsu replied in Taiwanese language translating to “So many good memories. I miss it! 😍”
Seeing these photos make me reminisce my childhood memories. The fondest of moments where Filipino families unite just to watch this kilig hit series.
“The epic F4 entrance!”
“Pangarap ko talagang maglakad dito hihi”
“Poor San Chai :(”
“Meteor Garden Season 2 Episode 1! Graduation Day!”
“Legit na tamang lugar to haha 🙂 shocks pero nakakakilig pag naaalala ko :)”
“First date! Pero after nito nagbreak sila :(”
“Shing He: ‘Mga artista ba yun?'”
“Unang pagkikita ni Shing He and San Chai :)”
“San Chai is the luckiest girl! Pinangarap ko din to bwahaha”
On the same album, the group posted pictures of themselves at the iconic Meteor Garden scenes.
How about you, how did you feel seeing these pictures? Nostalgic, right?

Oh baby, baby, baby. My baby, baby, baby!
The Taiwanese hit classic Meteor Garden that we all loved will now have a remake coming this 2018! It has been 16 years since the last episode aired that was shown into different countries, and translated into different languages!
Can you believe it?
The TV Series adaptation of the manga, Boys Over Flowers, became such a hit it had several versions in Asia, including Taiwan, and the origin of the manga, South Korea.
Who would forget the story of four insanely rich boys who formed a GGSS group named F4? Eventually, a normal girl bravely stood up against them. That’s the point where the toughest, and leader of the pack, became soft.
We can still remember the love and the craze Filipinos had when it was first introduced to our country. And for those who can’t relate, worry not, a latest remake will come your way some time next year!
Barbie Hsu created a buzz online as she posted a poster on her Instagram account. In the poster, is a romantic scene of 4 boys and a girl. We all understood it at we cannot wait for it!
According to Angie Chai, creator of the hit series, they are still on the screenwriting phase, and nothing is final yet as we speak. The cast and storyline is yet to be finalized.
The remake will have 48 episodes that will cater a fresher take on the original version. It will surely appeal and be a hit again with the rapid growth of millenial mentality.
They have been considering to cast the original F4 again, and of course, San Chai, the girl we all loved. Again, nothing is confirmed yet, and the process will be tough.
The impact of the series in the Philippines is massive! It was even moved from its original afternoon airing, and was put to a primetime slot, so more viewers can watch it. It was re-aired numerous times in both ABS-CBN and QTV (now, GMA News Channel) networks.
The series that completed our childhood is now being remade, and everyone can’t wait! And who would forget the opening stint of our favorite Asianovela?
