“Auld Lang Syne”

Goodbye 2011… Welcome 2012!!!

I hibernated for too long that I’m having a hard time organizing my thoughts. It’s either I have so many things in mind or my mind seem to float in outer space and goes blank whenever I start writing an article. Yeah, excuses! :p

I spent a very “solemn” Christmas and New Year… I refused to say that it was a boring one because I was able to reflect and think things over.   Hey, Steve Jobs accompanied me all throughout that “thinking” journey. :p

“Auld Lang Syne” is suppose to symbolize endings and new beginnings (as indicated in Wikipedia). Whatever happened in 2011, let it serve as:

  • a wake up call (forgive, forget, learn and move forward!)
  • an inspiration (strive harder to be a better creature!)

Stay positive all the time and never entertain negative thoughts.  Love love love for everyone!!!!! Let’s start 2012 with a big bang and a bright smile!!!!  Wheeeeey!

P.S. I won’t promise, but I will do my best to write more articles (a little bit crazy but hopefully sensible) this year and work on that new cyber home.

Hearts of 19

Hearts of 19

I saw this series being shown in Singapore and I got captivated! I admire the female lead’s “never say die” attitude. Incidentally, she’s also the female lead in Boys Over Flowers. I admit that triggered me to watch the show. 🙂

I can’t say much since I haven’t finished it yet. Nevertheless, I’m loving it to the maximum level!

My Lovely Samsoon

My Lovely Samsoon

This is another good show for unattached individuals who are chubby and with a very odd name which is “unacceptable” in the society. I fit the bill for being single and fat. Well, my name is unique and strange… but i love it! :p

The series also emphasized that being vocal is an asset. Know what you want, voice out how you feel and fight for your rights!

Soulmate

Soulmate

This made me stop and ponder on things. It truly hits home!

Whether we admit it or not, we all want to meet our soulmate. There are relationships that are not meant to be, no matter hard you try to make it work. Tragic but it’s reality. Accept the inevitable and move forward. It’s such a waste to live a pathetic life. :p

Marry Me


Marry Me

It’s a story about an old spinster (a.k.a. old maid) who wants to get married badly. This series kept me glued for two reasons:

  1. The male lead is so cute (he’s also one of the characters in the Boys Over Flowers)
  2. I can relate well to the story because I’m also an old maid. LOL I also want to get married but for the right reasons, otherwise, I’d rather stay single. Ha!

I Really Really Like You


I Really Really Like You

At first, I don’t like the plot of this series including the title (it’s corny!) but after watching few episodes, I finally find it appealing.  The male lead is very charming and has an endearing hilarious antics.  The way the male and female leads tried so hard to avoid the love that they feel for each other makes me think of some people I know. Indenial stage eh?

Also, this series made cooking an interesting and artistic undertaking as well as provided helpful tips and tricks.

Bad Couple

Bad Love

It’s kinda weird because the female lead’s plan to have a child without a husband coincide with mine. Hush hush! I even sent a text message to my prospective “donor” two (2) years ago. We did not yet talk about it. I think he’s ignoring it on purpose. I wonder why.  Maybe… Just maybe… He has something else in mind that I will know soon? Or it’s just my wild imagination?

Hmmm… Whatever it is, he has still six (6) months to think things over. You know who you are. Ha! If I don’t receive a reply after that period, I will resort to plan B. :p

Saranghae Korea!

Aneong Ha Sae Yo! (Hello!)

As promised in my previous article (Korean Aficionado), below are the Korean TV Series that I’ve watched for the past two (2) months.  You may click the links to view:

Note: I prefer watching the original series with subtitles than the “Tagalogized” (dubbed in Tagalog) version.

I’ve also watched Boys Over Flower (multiple times!), Coffee Prince, Sassy Girl, Temptation of a Wife,  Full House, Baker King (partial)  and… I forgot the others. I plead guilty. I’m a sucker for Korean TV Series and reached the point of becoming proficient in the art of reading subtitles!

iPhone crunchyroll app provided a convenient way to watch Korean shows whenever and wherever. Thanks much Steve Jobs and the Apple people for developing the iPhone!  I hope the Flash Player issue will be sorted out soon so that I can watch more. Ha!

As for the Hearts of 19, it’s not yet in the crunchyroll so I have to watch it in mysoju.com. I hope the crunchyroll guys will soon add it in their list. Wheey! Time to stop! This blog entry has gotten way too loooooooong! :p

See you all in a bit! Saranghae (I love you)! Aja!

iphone

I admit, no matter how fabulous the advantages of using an iphone presents, I still dilly- dally. At that time, my drive to start my blog site was very low. The motivation that I’ve been looking seem to sunk down in oblivion. However, my momentum resurrected and went on a steady beat when I break free from the claws of a dangerous creature.

So, it took me two years to weigh the pros and cons before I finally decided to buy an iPhone.  The convenience of using the iPhone to “pen” down my thoughts and immediately upload it to my blog site writing while in the train, bus or wherever I am was the deciding factor.

Thank you Steve Jobs for being the greatest innovator of all times (in my point of view that is…) :p Now, my iPhone became a part of my daily routine. It’s the last thing that I check before I go to sleep and the first thing that I look for when I wake up.

The practicality and usefulness of the iphone allowed me to utilize my time wisely.  Aside from writing articles, I was also able to do the following:

  • read and reply comments in thecuriousme.com and Facebook
  • listen to wave radio
  • watch youtube videos
  • check email
  • pay bills via internet banking
  • chat via yahoo messenger
  • surf the internet
  • check out directions via Google map

I decided to sell it (see transfer of ownership) due to unavoidable circumstances. It’s pretty agonizing because I’m letting go the most amazingl gadget that I’ve ever had so far. Of course, the laptop is also useful but iphone comes in handy at all times.

At any rate, life must go on. Who knows, I will get another one in the near future. Maybe by that time, Steve Jobs has already developed a phone that can enable people to teleport. Ha! :p
