Random Quote Jul 23

“To like someone is easy, you can have your attention on someone base on her looks or nice appearance. But, to truly love someone is a journey of exploration. You won’t know it until you truly go out and explore it. It is hard to know whether what you looking for is the right destination you are seeking to reach, until you spend time to realize it yourself.”

Goodbye MV - Juana



Didn't mean to hurt you badly,
Don't think that I am fooling around with you
So sorry for the time you've wasted on me,
So sorry for the things that you've went thru
But I know that the problem's within me,
You're so nice but your love don't deserve me
Or maybe I'm just so scared to fall in love again

I can still remember the days
So many times I've been hurt
So much trust I put on a relationship
So much suffering I brought and the pain still remain
You know I like you but I don't wanna take the risk
So confused and I don't know how to deal with it
I need sometime for a while before I give my heart away
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/j/juana/dont_say_goodbye.html ]
Don't say goodbye
Don't say goodbye
I need sometime for awhile before I give my heart away

Don't say goodbye
Don't say goodbye
I need sometime for awhile before I give my heart away

Now I know I wasn't thinking before
That's why I'm always ending up with Mr. Wrong
Learning form the past, don't wanna make mistake,
You could be Mr. Right or could be a fake
You know I like you but I don't wanna take the risk
So confused and I don't know how to deal with it
Need sometime for awhile before I give my heart away

Don't say goodbye
Don't say goodbye
I need sometime for awhile before I give my heart away

Don't say goodbye
Don't say goodbye
I need sometime for awhile before I give my heart away

What Hallyu has done to me...

The Korean Wave, also known as the Hallyu, refers to spread of South Korean culture around the world.


Here are some of the obvious signs how we 'Filipinos' especially ME were affected in the Korean Wave aka Hallyu.


1. Korean Drama (TV Series/Movies)
A lot of us are hooked on watching different Korean TV series or even movies. Some even posts Kdrama quotes on thei social networking accounts. As for me, I have a collection of DVDs - KDrama and Kmovies I've watched.


2. Korean Music aka Kpop
I find myself downloading and listening to Korean music ALWAYS. Most of the songs I listen to are Korean songs. Sometimes I don't even know the lyrics but I just like it.


3. Korean Fashion
Korean Fashion is everywhere! The normal attire for Filipinos is T-Shirt/Blouse, and Jeans (Pants). After being affected by Hallyu I've seen a lot of improvement on how they style and accessorize. One example is the popular Korean Bun hairstyle. I used to see this one among elders (old women) but now I see it to everyone (women of all ages)! I find it cute so I also do this hairstyle sometimes. See how big is the impact of Hallyu in our everyday lives? Haha..


4. Korean Food
The Food! Everyone suddenly wants to have Kimchi every meal. Some are curious on how Soju tastes. I suddenly want to always eat in a Korean restaurant.


5. Korean Language
Because of the addiction to Korean culture, some even wants to be fluent in Korean Language (Hangul). I even wanted to enroll in a Korean Language Training School but since I have a quite busy schedule at work, I wasn't able to do it. What I did is to study online. Big thanks to Google!


6. Korean Friends
I have a lot of Korean friends. I met them online because they wanted to learn how to be good in English and I'm interested with Korean culture. They are all so nice and friendly. I hope someday I can meet them in person.


These are just some of the proofs how Hallyu affected my life. I may be a Filipino, but I think I'm also a Korean by heart. Yes I'm addicted to Korean stuffs because it makes me happy. It changes my simple lifestyle into an extraordinary one. ^^v

Ppeppero! Ppeppero!

Last weekend I wanted to eat in a Korean restaurant but I don’t know how to get there so my sister suggested to visit a Korean convenience store. I checked on their menu and found out that they only serve Korean noodles and kimbap. We are about to go when I noticed the Korean snacks they sell. There are noodles, snacks, chocolates, and even soju! I saw that they also sell Ppeppero so I bought 2 boxes. Ppeppero is popular in South Korea every Valentine’s Day. For more information, read below.
——————————————————————————————————-
Pepero (빼빼로) is a cookie stick, dipped in chocolate syrup, manufactured by Lotte Confectionery in South Korea since 1983.
Pepero Day is an observance in South Korea similar to Valentine’s Day. It is named after the Korean snack Pepero and held on November 11, since the date “11/11” resembles four sticks of Pepero. The holiday is observed mostly by young people and couples, who exchange Pepero sticks, other candies, and romantic gifts. 
——————————————————————————————————-
As of 2007, it was sold in 10 different flavors:
- Regular or Chocolate
- Strawberry-flavored
- Almond Chocolate
- Nude (chocolate in the center)
- Nude Lemon Cheese
- Cocoa
- Soft
- Cheese
- “Woman in White” and “Man in Black” are slightly more “classy” brands of Pepero, and both have chocolate cookie bits scattered throughout the chocolate dip.
——————————————————————————————————-
Thanks to Wikipedia for the information about Ppeppero! ^^v

Thoughts to inspire us...


7 rules to a better life: 1) Never hate. 2) Don’t worry. 3) Live simply. 4) Expect a little. 5) Give a lot. 6) Always smile. 7) Live with love.


Everything is going to be alright, maybe not today, but eventually. Hope is a driving factor in helping us stay on course in life. It may feel as though it comes and goes, but in reality there is always hope. There is always a chance for something great to happen, and you need to have faith that it will.


Life is never going to be perfect. People you thought you knew are going to turn into strangers. The one you thought you loved may be the person you hate the most someday. You’re going to be happy and you’re going to fall. You need to know life isn’t perfect, but that’s what makes it great. Live your life for today and don’t forget to believe in yourself.


Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If we were to go through our life without any obstacles, we would be crippled. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. Give every opportunity a chance, leave no room for regrets.


There is only one way to learn, and that is through action. Trying to learn without doing is like trying to lose weight by watching someone else exercise. It’s just not going to work.


As you strive to achieve your goals and dreams you can count on there being some fairly substantial disappointments along the way. Don’t get discouraged, the road to your dreams may not be an easy one. Think of these disappointments as challenges - tests of persistence and courage - that life throws at you during your journey. They are necessary and are meant to help you grow as a person.

Korean Food Cravings....

I want to visit a Korean restaurant one of these days! Here are some of the Korean food and drinks I want to try. (¯﹃¯)


Bulgogi

Bulgogi is a Korean dish that usually consists of marinated barbecued beef, although chicken or pork may also be used. Bulgogi literally means "fire meat" in Korean, which refers to the cooking technique—over an open flame—rather than the dish's spiciness. The term is also applied to variations such as dak bulgogi (made with chicken) or dwaeji bulgogi (made with pork), although the seasonings are different. - Wikipedia


Galbitang
Galbitang also spelled as kalbi tang) is a variety of guk, or Korean soup, made primarily from beef short ribs along with stewing beef, daikon, onions, and other ingredients. The short ribs, or "galbi" also refers to grilled short ribs in Korean barbecue while the suffix tang is another name for guk. Hence, the Korean name literally means "short ribs soup" and is also called garitang, or galitang. - Wikipedia


Kimchi Jjigae

Kimchi jjigae is a variety of jjigae or stew-like Korean dish made with kimchi and other ingredients, such as scallions, onions, diced tofu, pork, and seafood, although pork and seafood are generally not used in the same recipe. - Wikipedia


Samgyeopsal

Samgyeopsal is a popular Korean dish. Commonly served as an evening meal, it consists of thick, fatty slices of pork belly meat (similar to uncured bacon). The meat, usually neither marinated nor seasoned, is cooked on a grill at the diners' table. Usually diners grill the meat themselves and eat directly from a grill. - Wikipedia


Tteokbokki

Tteokbokki, also known as Ddeokbokki is a popular Korean snack food which is commonly purchased from street vendors or Pojangmacha. Originally it was called tteok jjim (떡찜), and was a braised dish of sliced rice cake, meat, eggs, and seasoning. Tteok jjim an early variant of modern tteokbokki, was once a part of Korean royal court cuisine. This type of tteokbokki was made by boiling tteok, meat, vegetables, eggs, and seasonings in water, and then serving it topped with ginkgo nuts and walnuts. In its original form, tteokbokki, which was then known as gungjung tteokbokki, was a dish served in the royal court and regarded as a representative example of haute cuisine. The original tteokbokki was a stir-fried dish consisting of garaetteok (가래떡, cylinder-shaped tteok) combined with a variety of ingredients, such as beef, mung bean sprouts, green onions, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, and onions, and seasoned with soy sauce. - Wikipedia


Makgeolli

Makgeolli, also known as Makkoli or Makuly(takju) (and referred to in English as "Korean rice wine"), is an alcoholic beverage native to Korea. It is made from a mixture of wheat and rice which gives it a milky, off-white color, and sweetness. - Wikipedia

What is a Best Friend?

What defines a best friend? What are the requirements to be a good best friend? How many hours a week does it entail? Stupid questions that have no answers. 


A best friend is not defined by how many times they talk on the phone or how many hours they hang out together. It’s not defined by how many sleepovers they gossip at or how many inside jokes they have. There are no requirements or laws that state a good best friend must hang out with them every weekend, or tell each other every little detail. 



A best friend is a matter of opinion. It’s the person who’s been there for you through everything, not just through the fun things or the little things. It’s the person that you call when you’re at your absolute worst. It’s the person who saves you when you didn’t even notice you needed saving. Mostly, it’s the person who accepts you for who you are and the person that you’re becoming.

Definitely Maybe


April: Forget about the real deal. You don’t find it, it finds you. It means that you get to a certain age and then you’re ready. You know, you’re ready for kids or a commitment. You know what I mean? And the person that you’re with then, they become the one.

Will: So you’re saying it’s not who, but it’s when.

April: Exactly.

The long wait is over! Hah!

In my blog entry posted last December 2010, I mentioned that I won a digital camera from a contest I joined online. It was a memorable experience because it was my first time to won a great prize. I felt lucky and blessed because I participated a day before the deadline of the event. I was chosen as one of the winners of Samsung PL 100 digital camera.

I waited for 6 months for the prize! Yesterday I asked my Papah to get it from the Post Office. A form was delivered to our house without the package. They want me to get it from the postal office with valid ID. Since I have to go to work, I asked my Dad to be my representative.

As I got home, I was so surprised that it was not Samsung PL 100! It's even better than the original prize that they promised to give us. It is a Samsung VLUU/ST100 digital camera. I'm so happy while checking and testing it. I think it's worth $200 dollars or more (P10,000.00 plus) but I got it for free. Sadly I wasn't able to use it last night because I don't have adaptor for its battery charger.

Here are the pictures of my prize that I waited for 6 months to come. It may not be as great as DSLR camera but I love it! It makes me happy! I'm so glad I have it! ^^v

Smile, You MV - Vis A Vis


Vis a Vis/Just Waiting for You by Melo Breeze
HANGUL
눈 여겨 봐쥐 널 향한 삭랑 기득차서
무거 워진 내 몸 이젠 등 돌럴 수 없어
감출수가 없는 주머니 속 바늘처럼
들켜버렸어 숨길 수 없어
나의 사랑을

나의 사랑을
vis-a-vis face to face
얼굴을 맞대면
숨소리 하나마져도
사랑을 말하는것 같아
vis-a-vis face to face
쏟아낸 눈물도
너의 상처마저 내 눈엔 반짝여
너는 참 눈부셔

귀 기울여 들어줘
너를 향한 속삭임
하루종일 친구를 기다리면 서상대는
어린아이처럼 반 쯤 열린 문 틈세로
니가 오기만 눈이 빠지게
기다릴뿐야

vis-a-vis face to face
얼굴을 맞대면
숨소리 하나마져도
사랑을 말하는것 같아
vis-a-vis face to face
쏟아낸 눈물도
너의 상처마저 내 눈엔 반짝여
너는 참 눈부셔

무심하듯 날 보는 눈빛에도
손끝 하나만 스 쳐도
온 몸에 밀려드는 설레임의 향기가
혹시나 온 세상에 퍼질까봐 볼안해
누구와도 나누긴 싫은데 나만 갖고픈데

vis-a-vis face to face
얼굴을 맞대면
숨소리 하나마져도
사랑을 말하는것 같아
vis-a-vis face to face
쏟아낸 눈물도
너의 상처마저 내 눈엔 반짝여
너는 참 눈부셔

TRANSLATION
Your gaze are full of love looking at me
Making me feel weaken that i can not turn around
Like a needle that can’t be concealed
I can no longer hide these feelings inside from you
My love

*Vis-a-vis face to face
When we’re facing each other face to face
With every single breath
I’m gonna say i love you

**Vis-a-vis face to face
Your tears are flowing
It’s shinning bright that it left me with sorrow
You’re truly shinning now

Looking at your direction and whisper softly
Day by day, i’m waiting for a friend to come
Like a child peeking through an ajar door
I’m keeping my eyes peeled for your appearance
Just like this i’m waiting for you

Repeat * and **
When you look me in the eyes
When your finger tips brush me by
I felt a surge of love as the fragrance drifted my way
I’m afaird it’ll drift away to the whole world
Selfishly, i want to keep it as my own

Repeat * and **
