岂能尽如人意 但求无愧于心

My Daily Hallyu Hour

Oh Joy! The day just got a little better!

Korean Music Wave 2011

Finally the chance to catch Big Bang live and see if they are really all that. Jasu told me her colleague went for their concert in Korea and it was so good. I would really like to up their final score because Jasu was very indignant how Big Bang can get the lowest score, and I feel quite bad about it.

And who is this Jang Geun Suk person? He seems to be all over the place recently. I vaguely know that he's in that Mary Live Outside or something drama. But I haven't watched it yet. Maybe I should ey, he looks really... pretty.

Bring It On

Why does everyone and their grandfather wants to give me advice that I did not sought for? Are they interested to know where they can shove their advice up to?

But I am decided. I am not going to crawl into a hole and hide even if it means going into a nasty, underhanded, dirty fight. I will not be sorry to my integrity or my principles. I am already fat and have rapidly aging looks that are only pleasant at best, a clear conscience is all I have.

我还是做不到像一些人那么阴险, 无耻。没有关系! 至少,我对得起自己的良心。

总有一次, 天会收你。

Oh Yaay!

SHINee to perform at Abbey Road Studios in London to celebrate their Japanese debut

The boys are GOING PLACES! Feel so proud for them that they are getting this kind of recognition. I do not know anything about this famous studio, but getting invited to perform in London is a big deal!

Have a blast, boys! =D

Can I...

...really be that manipulative and hypocritical person who does not say what she really feels and just present an opinion that she knows for sure will be well-received, possibly resulting in being placed in a positive light yet feeling like a piece of crapshit because she knows that it is very, very wrong?

I don't know. I am thinking maybe I can be. If just to make life a little easier, a little simpler. It's tiring to have to pretend just to stay relevant. But maybe it's just so much easier than fighting against the current everyday just to hold on to a little bit of principle and conscience, then feeling like a broken, ragged doll at the end of the day every so often.

But I don't want to be that person. I would despise myself so much.

Reality of an adult is still something I find difficult to take in in entirety. Little wonder why I choose to immerse myself in everything remotely opposite of my own.

Jake Gyllenhal.Source Code

Watched Source Code yesterday.

As usual Jake Gyllenhaal is so awesome. He is like some box office Viagra, any movie he's in is bound to get at least some kudos. I wonder what it's like to be able to do anything and people always say you are good.

Look at that. You never know such a combination of dorkish intelligence and suave boyishness can co-exist in such an unexpected package. Yes, I am talking about his body. He really does not give off the aura of someone who has a body like that:

Oh well.

Where's The Humble Pie?

Seriously, why are there people out there who are so full of themselves?

Maybe their shit don't stink and their fart smells like Chanel, but if I shoot them with a gun, they still die, no?

So why in the world are they so arrogant? It's a sad day for Humility who just choked on a dust bunny and coughed it's lungs out.

Say Wot?

I swear I don't know what this boy is up to nowadays. But I guess it's a consolation that he still looks manly doing this. Especially in comparison to Key. No one, and I mean NO ONE can out-diva Key!

Currently watching this:

Yes, never thought this day will come, but I am actually watching and recommending a show from China. People who knows me well knows that I am a fan of historical shows; and people who knows me better knows my love-hate relationship with anything China. Love the history, but the people, erm, not so much. Love the products because they are so affordable, but always skeptical about the quality I am getting.

But anyway, this show is nice! It's about a modern day woman named Qing Chuan who accidentally time-travels to the Qing Dynasty during the reign of Emperor Kangxi, who I heard was a really great emperor, right into the thick of the palace politics and struggle for power. In the midst of trying to adapt her modern beliefs and behaviour in a time entirely different from her own, she also has to deal with scheming concubines, mercenary servants, as well as being torn between two princes contending for her affections and the emperor's trust.

I love such plots! Especially when it's set in the ancient times. People in history just seems so much more fascinating. Probably because they don't waste their time sitting around, hitting away at board with 105 keys.

And I thoroughly enjoy the love story arc with Qing Chuan and the two princes, namely Prince 4 and Prince 8. There is another dude who is totally in love with her, but we all know he is just a minor distraction. There have been lots of comparisons with Boys Over Flowers, and I totally agree.

Qing Chuan initially likes Prince 4, with his quiet, deeply intelligent demeanor, and despises Prince 8 who is essentially a spoiled brat who bullies his way into whatever he pleases. But she will later fall for Prince 8, though I am not sure how yet. I am still at the point of the story where I think Prince 4 is better, although it's clear right from the beginning that there is this unyielding, cruel streak about him. Oh well, dark streak or not, I am forever a Hanazawa Rui supporter. Just gotta like the quiet, tortured soul types.

So anyway, if you have time, give it a watch. It's a pretty well-paced show without too many boring moments. The leading lady is rather adorable and somehow manages to make the character of a modern day woman adapting so quickly to life as a palace maid believable. And while I don't find the two princes particularly handsome or charming, the scenes with Qing Chuan and Prince 4 always make me feel a little whimsical, while those of her with Prince 8 always makes me laugh.

One thing the show lacks though is the mind-blowing strategical schemes that Queen Seon Deok had. I am always cheering and/or applauding while I was watching QSD. Now that is some good television.

Note: Just for the record, I have nothing against China. My grandparents were immigrants from China, so by default of direct lineage, China is sort of considered my ancestral land. And I love those Hong Kong shows about ancient China. I find the landscape beautiful and the stories fascinating. I just have more unpleasant experiences with people from China than I care to remember. Try getting stuck at an immigration customs full of China people and you will know what I mean. But that said, I also understand how people can be really discriminating towards them. I am constantly being mistaken as being from China, and some of the incidents I had were not so pleasant. People can be really rude and arrogant towards you if they think you are from China. So well, I guess I am both sides of the coin. What to do.

Good Saturday!

It's been a few days since I last blogged. Quite a change from the two or three posts a day frivolity that I indulged in for the past couple of months. I figured that since I hit the 1000-post mark, which was sort of a personal goal ever since I discovered I had about 900 over posts in February, I should really just bring it down a notch.

Also, I kept meaning to blog about my Taipei trip. But the sheer volume of photos to go through just feels taxing. Feels like I am working and that is not what I and this blog is about.

Haha, I have such trivial whims.

Anyway, currently watching Modern Family and Better With You, both fairly recent sitcoms that I managed to watch a little during my flight to Taipei. Gotta love SIA; they even have SHINee's album in their music collection.

It's nice to catch up with "western" stuffs for a change. I've been so into Korean entertainment recently that I feel disassociated with all the other things that I love. I used to be so up-to-date with the latest movies, music, shows and entertainment whatnots. Hollywood gossips were like a second language to me. Nowadays I can barely remember to read at least once a day.

I guess this is what growing up does to you, you don't really have time for everything you love to do. Favourite activities inevitably turning into pastimes that you hardly find yourself having the time to do.

A good example for me is going for shows. I cannot remember the last time I saw a concert, musical, play or artistic performance that is not a free invite. Something that I actually wanted to watch and set out to purchase a ticket for. There is always something, a reason or an excuse to just skip it. An appointment or just sheer tiredness. And this is something I am really looking to change. I am always looking at the Sistic website for things to go for. I just don't know why I am always procrastinating on actually buying a ticket.

Oh well, but I do love holidays. Gives a person the chance to discover new things and helps to remind her of all the things that she loves to do which she has not done in a while.

Travelling is something that will always be a top for me, something that I will never put away and have no time for.

Happy Easter tomorrow! If you celebrate Easter. =)

Thought Of The Day #10

I don't see the point in giving any face to someone who behaves like a toilet bowl. If you act like a crap dumping hole, you get treated like one.

Now scram, before I bring out the toilet cleaner.

I am back!

Taipei was fun! Gonna try post about my trip there. Provided I am not too lazy to sort through all the photos I took! Was so trigger-happy when I was there. Hehheh!

Oh yeah! I totally forgot about it, but I am past my 1000-post mark! *applause applause*

I would like to thank all the happy, angry, sad happenings, people, objects and substances that gave me a reason to post an entry about. And next month will mark the 6th year milestone of my blog! This is the longest I have ever consistently done something!

I am proud! =D

Waiting to board now!

In such a fabulous mood now! Gonna have so much fun in Taipei!

Heh. <3

Mighty Man And His Broom

To quote: "And not a single fuck was given that day."

Thursday, April 07, 2011


What in the world is this???

I love abs much as the next nymphomaniac, but this is just... inexplicable.

I really don't know what to say man. My face is still like this...

...from my first look at the picture.

As Little Dude says, 그냥... 세로운 세상...


Sometimes it's hardest to say how you really feel to the people you care about.

I know I love my parents a lot, and I worry about them all the time, but it's not something I can neccessarily vocalise to them.

Because we are just not that kind of family. They would probably think I am crazy and pack me off to the nearest hospital if I even attempt to be all sweet and lovey to them. Which I can't anyway.

I am simply just going to keep trying my best to be a better daughter, although I know I will never be able to even touch a tip of the ice berg of everything they have done and sacrificed for me.

But there are definitely days when I have to try really hard because we just don't see eye to eye on so many things. And sometimes I know I really come across as being frustrated and angry at them, but it's not them that I am frustrated and angry at, but the situation.

I hope that somehow they will be able to understand that and never see themselves as a burden to me, because they are anything but.

I don't know what I will do without them.

I have a lot of pictures taken with my iPhone that are just sitting around being useless. So I decided to post them. It's okay if you don't find them interesting and/or funny at all, as if so, then you are a potato. I don't really care so much about a potato.

I do such things as part of my job, looks cool right? But I can tell you right now, IT IS NOT! Pain in the ass is what it is if what is it.

Hook on mango Yan Yan recently, so I went and bought like five boxes of 4-packs. That's 20 packs! Yummy!

World most expensive sweet potato which, honestly, really looks like 大便. Really black and solid 大便

Ey, not sure what's going on here. Another one of those brain-fart moments that I have.

Went for 拔罐 a couple of weeks ago. Hurt like a goddamn son of a bitch, I tell you. Almost wanted to die. But it's really good. Could feel the tension around my neck and upper back loosen quite a bit after the session. But still, it's crapfking painful!

Personal upkeep is very important. That's all I am willing to comment on this. Erhm.

Gingy: "不要管我! 让我躺死在这里! 不要理我!"

Poor Ging, I think he has really given up on life after two short months with me. See the mango Yan Yan? Like!

I usually do not advocate taking photos of strangers on the train. BUT THIS UNCLE IS SIMPLY ASKING FOR IT! His shirt was not buttoned properly and he kept 放半粒 for everyone to see. It's very disturbing. I am already angry enough on the morning commute, I DO NOT need to see other people's endowments. Especially when uncle can easily hit c-cup without even wearing a push-up bra. ARRGH!!! JEALOUS! But I am still humane, hence I decided to mosaic his face.

Now uncle, say thank you and FARKING BUTTON UP YOUR DAMN SHIRT!

Gingy playing hide-and-seek after getting over his suicidal tendencies.

And yup, I have a picture of SHINee in front of me at my desk, looking at it right now as we speak in fact. I usually just look at the picture and smile dreamily, before using a ruler to whack the picture because THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT TO BE SO CUTE!

Yes, strong indications of serious imbalances in this woman.

The. End.

Self-Pwn Picture Of The Day #2

When you reach the pinnacle of being utterly useless, there is only one way to go.

If I Could, I Would.

I hate it when it happens.

Why am I still entrapped by the claws that was yesterday?

I want to smother you until your light goes out like a candle.

Except that I am really the monster while you are the star in the story.

How is that fair?

Can I like roll out of bed and look like that, right angle and awesome lighting with just the perfect amount of smile, everyday?


Bowl Cut

I think there is something wrong with me. Witness.

This is Lee Jaejin from F.T. Island.

Typical pretty boy type that can be seen in any boy band. Nothing specifically too interesting.

And then, he go and do this to himself...

Is it weird that I now find him totally too cute?

I blame Little Dude for this. YOU! You and your 10000 different styles of bowl cut has immunised me to bowl cuts!!! GO DRINK YOUR MILK AND STOP ADVOCATING WEIRD HAIRSTYLES!!!

Like The Moment

Today I don't feel quite so frustrated and angry for a change. Maybe it's a sign of good things to come. Or maybe just a false sense of contentment after a seemingly calm week.

Whatever it is, I think I know exactly who to be grateful to for this.
