For years, I’ve hidden behind the pseudonym of Jade M. Wong and the profile picture of an anime girl. I’ll still be using the pseudonym, but I’m ready to stop hiding.
To my blogging friends, my readers, and the whole wide world, are you listening? Can you see me? I’m re-introducing myself. Continue reading “Re-Introducing Me”
Honored to have been featured on Mandi’s interview series. Mandi is one of the first bloggers I met through WordPress and more than a year later, she remains someone I consider a friend and a talented writer in her own right!
Welcome back to my biweekly interview series. I hope you all had an amazing holidayand I would like to start the New Year off right with an interview from the sweet and gifted Jade M. Wong. Her blog is called: Jade M. Wong – Writer At Heart. Fangirl by DNA. Struggling Human Until Further Notice.
Jade M. Wong
1. Jade, Please Tell Us About Yourself?
I’m a New York City girl named Jade M. Wong. In short, I’m a writer in my heart, a fan-girl by DNA, and a struggling human until further notice. I’m often up until 4:00 am at night battling inconvenient words and fantastical stories. If I were a gazillionaire, I wouldn’t buy a mansion, but a cozy apartment in every city I love. In the meantime, I make do with cozy corners across the internet-sphere.
2. When Did You Start Writing and Blogging and…

A message from Rosema & myself…
Jade: Hello fellow bloggers, struggling humans, and friends! First off, a happy new year to you all!
Rosema: Some of you may have started 2017 ready for our next Monday Morning Melts Prompt, and noticed that there were none.
Jade: Rosema & I came to the difficult conclusion over the holidays that we will not be continuing our Monday Morning Melts event. The reason for that is because we both are having trouble juggling our respective Real Life Responsibilities *shakes fists in vain*. Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts Is Saying Goodbye”
He heard the clicking of the footsteps as if they were a drum pounding the pavement. It was behind him, dressed in a black trench coat and a scarred face. It never spoke a word to him, but he knew.
The timer had started on the rest of his life.

Me: One Peppermint Mocha for you, One Green Milk Tea for me.
You: Green Milk Tea? Is your body even supposed to consume drinks that are green?
Me: It’s green tea blended with milk, and delicious. Besides, the person drowning their body in sugar shouldn’t be criticizing my drink.
You: Drowning in sugar…or drowning in flavor? I prefer to see it as the latter.
Me: *laughs* Well, I suppose that’s one way to ring in the new year. Continue reading “Weekend Coffee Share: Baby Steps”
Here’s to Cupid aiming his arrows accurately
To lost love being found.
Here’s to being nice (and a little naughty!)
For Santa all year ‘round.
Here’s to friendships, stretched thin from wear
Built up like a house of cards.
Here’s to friendships, triple knotted with care,
Built to last when things get hard.
Here’s to laughing on the couch with a glass of wine
To empty tissue boxes and sad love songs.
Here’s to enjoying the little moments of frozen time
To blasting the music and singing along. Continue reading “[Poetry] A Toast”
Rosema: After being MIA for the past week, I am back with dear Jade for Monday Morning Melts! 🙂 After the Christmas festivities, let me treat you with yet again another sweet sweet song. 🙂
I have written a fiction titled “Quite Like You” based on this song. When you read its lyrics, and when you hear it playing and being sang, you cannot help but hope that someone will sing this song for you someday. ❤
So much with dreamy words, here it is, friends!
PROMPT: The Script – Never Seen Anything “Quite Like You”
When it’s right it’s more than right
Cause you feel it more than feel
I could take this moment now
Right into the grave with me Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts #7”
Red for all the anger I kept inside,
Yellow for all the times I was confused,
Blue for all the silent tears I cried,
Purple for all the stars in every bruise.
Red for all the love you couldn’t kill,
Yellow for all the sunshine I could still feel,
Blue for all the times you couldn’t break my will,
Purple for all the stars when the bruises healed.

Jade: Do you feel it? The beautiful lights, the easy smiles, and the hint of magic in the air that always makes the holiday season one to remember.
Instead of choosing from one of the classic Christmas songs, I’m offering lyrics this week from a song that’s a little quirkier. To everyone still scrambling for that perfect Christmas gift, I hope this song is a reminder that the perfect Christmas gift is something money can never buy.
Happy Holidays to all of you, my dear friends! I wish you all a season of contagious laughter, unconditional love, and magic to last a lifetime.
PROMPT: Humbug – Owl City
I’m ready to wrap that perfect Christmas gift
But I haven’t found it yet
‘Cause I don’t have a clue what to get you
So I’ll give you my heart, I hope it’ll do Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts #6”
Give me three, give me four,
Give me seven, give me more,
Give me books stacked to the door,
As long as the story is not a bore.
Give me romance, give me glory,
Give me villains, but not too gory,
Give me a chance to live like royalty,
And change my life with every story.

He could be the reason I learn to love mornings,
The way the sun plays with the shadows,
The way he smiles when I open my eyes.
I could be the reason he stays up all night,
The way the moon lights up our dance floor,
The way we laugh until sunrise.
We could be each other’s first,
First love that endures past tomorrow.
We could be the happy ending,
But now we’ll never know.

Some of you may have noticed that Monday Morning Melts took an impromptu break last week. Rosema is back this week, however, with lyrics that we hope will melt your heart like no other.
Rosema: Most of the time, love is expressed and felt through physical intimacy. Touch. Kisses. Hugs. But how about loving someone from afar? How about loving someone you haven’t seen yet? How about falling for someone’s soul residing in a body thousand miles away from you? Will it be a gamble worth committing? Will it feel like a heart’s solitary suicide?
This week, let’s delve the idea of long distance love. (Which is now for me, the purest love of all). ❤
PROMPT: “One Sweet Love” – Sara Bareilles (lyrics)
The earth that is the space between,
I’d banish it from under me to get to you.
Your unexpected love provides my solitary suicide
oh I wish I knew Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts #5”
“Let’s go into the creepy glowing room, you said.” She grabbed a handful of the green translucent wires hanging from the ceiling and tossed them behind her shoulder, smacking him in the face.
“Agh-!” He rubbed his sore cheek. “Baby girl, those wires actually hurt, you know.”
Chuckling, he slipped his fingers through hers and took off in a run. Continue reading “[Flash Fiction] Starlight”
From one Sunshine Blogger to another, I thank you kindly, Angela Campbell!
Also, apparently, there are questions.
1) What inspired you to initiate blogging?
Muse: *click clacks on my laptop* Writer human! What is this WordPress that other writer humans are frequenting?
Me: It’s a blogging thing. You create a blog, you share writing, you get feedback. Why?
Muse: No reason. Do you prefer Jade Wong or Jade M. Wong?
Me: M. We talked about that, didn’t-
Me: What? What’s done? What did you do?
Muse: First post hmm…oh! A Toast! New year, new poem!
Me: MUSE, OH MY GOD. Continue reading “The Sunshine Blogger Award”
