I'm already feasting my eyes on these photos of Geun Suk as Seo In-ha, from his new drama Love Rain.

Who wouldn't want to watch him?

Sunday, March 25, 2012


I'm currently watching The Rooftop Prince online - which is not what I ordered. I hate watching anything online, especially when it's something superb like this drama.

I was drawn to it because of Yoochun.

After I watched him in Miss Ripley, I wanted to watch more of his acting - he's quite a good actor. There are dramas in which the first episode or even few episodes after that would be so bland, they couldn't attract people to continue watching. The Rooftop Prince is nothing like that. It was downright funny, thanks to the Crown Prince and the trio.

lies and deception

It's been a while since I last mention about K-drama here, I couldn't even remember the last time. I finished watching Warrior Baek Dong-Soo a couple of days ago, after weeks of watching it..slowly.

Now it's Miss Ripley's turn. It's such a scary story about how bad someone can make up stories and pretend everything is real to others, when it's a sham. The saddest part (for me) was when both guys went to buy a ring for Jang Mi-ri and stumbled upon each other. The guys are different - Song Yoo-hyun (JYJ's Yoochun) is younger and shows his love for Jang Mi-ri in a sweet and innocent way, while Jang Myeong-hoon is more mature and very attentive.

all this talk

I've been wanting to get a new job for a while, since the environment was a tad bit (a bit, huh?) suffocating at work. And besides, I need to look for something which has a better prospect for me. Because even if the pay is okay, I can't really wait for at least one year just to get promoted one level up. How long do I have to wait before I can be where I aim to be?

Working there was fun, but lately it's been a bore..especially since business is a bit slow. So I tried hard looking out for something else. Days went by without any news, until one call came for me. Then other companies seek me out for interviews. I was excited, thinking of the windows of opportunity that have opened up.

This morning I got the news that I got the job I wanted, but I haven't got the chance to talk to the other - so I need to put my decision on hold.

One thing is confirmed, that I'm taking off the green apron. I feel happy, but at the same time I feel sorry for my manager. But things like this happen all the time, right. It could happen to me in the future too. Karma, I know.
I'm gonna miss the coffee, and all the Korean customers. That is for sure.

Today's a great day for my youngest brother too. He was so moody all the time before - because of his driving tests, and because of the SPM result coming out. Then he passed the tests, but he was still moody. Maybe he was really scared of what unexpected thing could pop out.
But, he got a call yesterday (yes, a day before the result is announced) from his teacher saying he needs to go to the state's education dept. He thought the teacher could have made a mistake, still didn't believe it and he couldn't really sleep last night. My brother is one of the top 3 students at Mozac.
I'm the only one who didn't do as well as my siblings, and I'm the eldest :p Shame on me.

I already told my manager last month that I need extra rest days because of this trip, and he was okay with it. I was excited ever since then, but felt the days could have gone faster so I can be away from work and have fun..eating. Yeah, that was what I planned long ago and that was what I did there.

We didn't reach Kelantan on the first day. The journey started from home, then to Shah Alam and then we headed to KL. After I finished taking care of things there, which was around 1 in the afternoon, only did we head to Kuantan and onwards. We decided to stop for the night in Kuala Terengganu, which was great because the next morning I got my fill of Akok gula pasir, Akok gula merah and another type of kueh that I don't know the name, at Pasar Payang. I go crazy whenever there is an array of kueh waiting to be picked by me :p

Then we continued the drive towards Kelantan and picked up my sister. We had vegetarian lunch because my sister loves to eat that at the cafeteria. We walked around Bazar Buluh Kubu after we had some rest and mom bought Batik shirts for my brother. That night we went to Wakaf Che Yeh and it was totally different from the last time I went there. It was packed with people because the next day was Friday and they don't have to work. I felt suffocated having to walk at narrow alleys with people bumping into each other all the time. I didn't really look at the stuff there after a while, I was trying to figure out which way we came from.

This photo was taken the next morning, after breakfast at Pasar Siti Khadijah. We went there quite late, and I didn't see any Akok at the stall near the stairs. Only Bahulu was left. If not, I'd surely buy some from the lady.

After that we spent some time at KB Mall, then back to the hotel for a nap before going out again. This time we went to the night market near my sister's campus. There were so many food that I wanted to try. But we could end up wasting them, so I tried very hard not to be tempted by everything :p There's this kueh which has yam cubes in rice flour and wrapped in a leaf, which made it looked a bit like kueh was so nice.


where else can we get coconut shake with this price?
love the one with grated coconut filling

The next morning we bought even more kueh for breakfast. It was the best holiday for me, especially since there's no telling if it's the last one for a long time after this. We stopped at the Crystal mosque because I've never been there. Yeah, lame I know.

Another stop was at Kampung Geliga, Kemaman for satar and otak-otak. And so we were done with the stops along the journey. Maybe I really should move to the east coast..hehe.

The most awaited time is getting very near..I've been waiting in anticipation since last month. But before having fun, away from work (if I may add)..I have to complete some tasks. One given by my manager, others are the result of my persistence. I'm hoping everything would turn out for the better.

My manager asked me to 'represent' the store for the coffee tasting session in front of the District Manager. I was feeling a bit anxious, because it could turn out to be a scary moment if I make any mistakes. I have only conducted two sessions before that, one in front of my supervisor..and another in front of my manager. The manager said I did good, so I need to do it for the store's sake.

Thankfully I did okay, and the DM was satisfied. She said she was impressed because I had been in the company for less than 3 months and yet I showed them I can do it. I did jumble up some words, for the part that I didn't read much beforehand :p
Next time I need to be real prepared, and that is if there's next time.
I need some acting lessons, any tips? Haha. 

I need to do well for another three tasks, tomorrow and the next day. This is for myself, and I hope I can do as well as today. Gotta go rest because tomorrow's going to be a longggg day.

counting the years

We live just 30 minutes from each other, but seldom have the chance to meet. Now it's hard too - she don't have to work on weekends, but it's the opposite for me.

I'm just thankful we get to meet again last Friday, albeit it was a quick one. We went to get our coffee fix, some sushi and spent the rest of the time talking. We haven't got enough, but soon it was time to go. I'm aiming for a whole day next time, you better prepare yourself dear. ;)

Oh, and the vacation we have in mind..really can't wait for that. I'll get ready the list of food we should eat first..haha.

Note: We didn't plan on wearing the same color, we just think alike :)
