I slept at 3:30 AM a while ago even though I had work because I ended up binging the first four episodes of Buamdong Revenge Club, whilst drinking soju too! Hahaha. Anyway, I ended up going to work late but who cares because my heart felt fuller than it was before I got to know these amazing ahjummas and THE KID WHO MADE ME FINALLY ACCEPT THAT I AM A NOONA ALREADY. I know the show is over now and my Checking in on posts were for checking in on currently airing shows but this is my blog and now I’m using it for when I want to talk about a drama’s episodes. Hope you can discuss this amazing show with me! Continue reading “Checking in on: Buamdong Revenge Club [Avengers Social Club] Episodes 1-4”
I’m doing weekly round-ups now, which will include any media I consumed for the past week, from Sunday to Saturday. I’d be glad if you end up getting some recommendations but I’m only doing this as a form of a media journal (to make it easy to write reviews later on). And fine, an actual journal too. Here goes! (I posted this and I ended up deleting it, thinking it was a draft because the WordPress app on my phone sycned and made it a draft and so I had to retype everything HUHUHUHU.)
I don’t know why I’m doing this. I saw people who’ve watched it and thought it was pretty okay/good so naturally I got curious and then I figured why not provide the ~gap~ in the community and recap the first episode for all those people who are curious whether to watch it or not too. Hope this helps!

This post is another result of me missing Lee Soo-hyuk so much. (First was watching Neighborhood Hero.) Really, one night, me missing him just culminated into this intense emotion that I read lots of articles about him. I also ended up going through tons of his photos and gifs and I’ve also saved quite a few. So I’m sharing them! Continue reading “Recent Saves (3): Lee Soo-hyuk Edition”

(I’m posting this again a day late because I was too preoccupied last night to finish it and post it on Sunday. Heh. I never change. But I’m still just covering until Saturday so you’ll read about what preoccupied me next week. Hee.)
October just ended and WOW I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT BELIEVE IT’S NOVEMBER NOW. Like, WHERE DID 2017 GO?!?! (Down the dumpster, I guess.) Here are the songs I’ve been listening to the past month.
Sweet Dreams has been on constant rotation. Not a week passed by that I didn’t listen to it. I go one day exclusively listening to it then I venture for other tracks the next day. Then I come back to it. I even learned to play it on the uke because I love singing it too.
If you’ve been reading my weekly round-ups, there was a week when all I listened to was MINO’s Body. It was a perfect working background song for me too because I was able to focus and finish my deadlines back then. Because I keep on listening to it, my sister Lianne also got the bug from me and she randomly sings this song and side-eyes me. Hahaha!
Walk the Moon (AKA fave band) has been releasing singles and I’M SO EXCITED FOR THEIR ALBUM IN A COUPLE OF DAYS
Epik High also released an album and TEARS THEY ARE FLOWING
IV of Spades also dropped a new track and damn, these Filipino kids are just so talented. I can’t wait for them to be super big in the very near future. Loving the retro~
The kdrama This Life is Our First has taken over my life the past month so its OSTs are in here too, obviously.
Niall also released his Flicker album last month and so there are some tracks from the album in here.
How about you? Please do share awesome music!
Because I’m me, I wasn’t able to schedule any posts for the time that I was away. I was actually in South Korea last week (October 15 to 21)! Anyway, so this weekly round-up would be three weeks worth because I had the draft ready for last last week (before I went to Korea) but I wasn’t able to finish it. So I’m dumping all updates in here! Continue reading “Weekly Round-up (11): October 8 – 28, 2017”
Epik High has released a new album after three years last Monday entitled WE’VE DONE SOMETHING WONDERFUL and has gone on to snag ALL of the #1 spots in ALL of the music charts in South Korea. And rightfully so because the album is so good, as expected of them. The lyrics, the musicality. I cried, okay. Under the cut are three more photos from this shoot for High Cut!

…how I go home early now that I have a car. I always thought that since I now have my own car, I could go home whenever I want to. I don’t need to think of until what time jeeps are available or if I have to change routes if there are no more jeeps at a certain time. I don’t have to be afraid every time I hail a cab to go home if I’m too drunk. Having a car means I can now go home whenever I want.
But it’s the complete opposite. Since I park inside our gated apartment, I have to be early so I could park without anyone blocking the gate. It’s such a hassle when I go home late and someone has parked in front of the gate because I have to match the car to its owner and go a flight of stairs and ask the car’s owner to move his/her car so I can park inside. I always feel like a douche whenever I hassle people over parking my car.
So I go home early. So even if I have to ask someone to move their car, it’s still early and they’re most likely awake still. Not only that, but having a car meant I also go to work earlier. Going in at 10AM doesn’t cut it anymore because I don’t have any parking space left by that time. I have to go in early.
This post has no point but to share my observation, which I find ironic. “Having a car means freedom!” Nope. Not for me. Although it is very convenient to not have to wait in line for jeeps especially when it’s raining. Or book an Uber worth two liters of gasoline, which could serve me for days if I drove my own car. I also don’t arrive to work sweaty and I can listen to the songs I want on full blast. I never thought I’d like driving (oh goodness, the anxiety and stress of learning) but I actually do. Unless it’s parking my car, which still stresses me the fuck out. But whenever I’m driving, it’s just so peaceful. I have time alone for myself, which I know I supposedly get loads of but I’m living with my sister so I don’t really have time ~alone~.
I like driving. I hope it likes me someday too. Especially parking. Haha!
