atta kids!

My nephew, James, birthday party just ended. And we, the “old folks”, shared hearty laughter with regards to their funny antics. Check this out:

 Ysa (3-year old kid)

Cheska & Ysa

Ysa: Do you wanna slide?

Cheska: Yes.
(Cheska is roughly 12 – 13 years old)

Ysa: I’ll catch you!

We were not able to control our laughters because Ysa is so tiny while Cheska is very tall.

Jedd (7-year old kid)

Jedd

Jedd: Dad, I broke the TV.

Dad: This is the second time Jedd!

Jedd: Don’t worry, I can pay for that Dad. How much is it?

Dad: $500

Jedd: Is it including tax?

A 7-year old kid is very much aware about tax ey?

James  (7-year old kid)

James

James: Tita, what’s your birthday gift for me?

Me: What do you want James?

James: Don’t give me money, I have lots of money.

Me: Why do you need a gift then?

Then he just ran off.  I ended up giving him an Apple magic mouse for his new MacBook Pro! Ha!

Gotta snooze now. I’m absolutely bone-weary. See ya laytah! 😉

“exercise”

I was lazing around in the living room after lunch with my six year old nephew, James, when he turned to me… check out below for our amusing conversation:

James:  Tita, can I use your laptop?

Me: Sure James. Can I watch the TV then?

James: Not yet, you must do your dance exercise for the day with the Xbox first.

Me: (I was trying to stifle a laughter) But I’m too full James. I just had my lunch.

James: Ok, you can watch the TV for 30 minutes then.

He sounded like a workout trainer. It’s darn hilarious! You rock James!  😉

heads up!

I cut the Saranghae Korea! into different links. I separated each Korean TV Series to give way to Leila’s request. She wanted to comment on separate TV Series. I think it’s a very good suggestion because it made the article more organized and “clean”.  Thanks Leila!  By the way, check out her newly set up blog site -> Vaindulgence

Have fun reading everyone! More articles will be posted in a flash!  Saranghae!

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!

Korean Aficionado

First things first.
I’m not a Korean.

I’m a true blooded Filipino who was born and raised in the Philippines. I stayed momentarily in Europe and Singapore then eventually migrated somewhere in North America. Moreover, I’ve never been to Korea… and nobody paid me to write this. :p  However, if Koreans would like to treat me with an all expense paid trip to Korea… that would be awesome!  If given the chance, I want to see the Jeju Island, Seoul and the Namsan Tower.

Korean Hanbok

I can’t really understand why am I so hooked with Korean TV Series.. maybe because it’s an excellent stress reliever? Koreans make simple stories into a great feel good and charming series. I’ve finished watching five (5) series plus one (1) in progress. Every episode lasts for an hour and the usual series have 17 to 25 episodes.

Only Hearts of 19 has 160+ episodes. I’m now in the 95th episode but currently I stopped watching so that I can focus in writing entries for my blog site and at the same time, live my life like normal human being should do. :p

Until next time!  Aja!
