Fast Forward to Now

Err.. I hate to admit this but.. Long time no see Internet! Andun na’ko eh! I was going well with blogging, even posting random thoughts and one-liners.. but work and life ate me up again. Hay. Nothing’s wasted though, just memories and more things to blog about, I guess. At least I have my dramas to escape to..

Oh, and speaking of dramas..

As for the recap I promised the other week (has it been a month? lol), I’ll be doing one for this week instead, for the main and obvious reason that there’s no use dwelling in the past (yep, that’s right). I also recently got hooked with this Taiwanese Drama called Fall In Love With Me with THE Aaron Yan and Tia Li as leads. Why did I know of your existence just now Aaron? You are a hot beast! lol.

My sister got me into it, as suggested by a friend of hers. At first I thought it would just be a good way to pass the time while I wait for my main kdramas to air.. the next thing you know, we were having a Fall In Love With Me marathon, just to catch up. The show apparently has 23 episodes in total, with the 14th episode being the latest one (yep you guys can still catch up if you’re willing to). I’m warning you though, it’s highly addictive. Hence, my apparent irregular sleeping habits. 

Haven’t watched episode 14 yet, but if I were to describe the drama so far in three words.. It’s cute, fun and confusing. The scriptwriters have been doing a good job satisfying the viewers with lots of skinship (ooh lala), Aaron Yan, and a solid storyline. Though the concept’s really a bit like Hannah Montana (I agree with one of the bloggers), they gave a different approach, and that’s what got us and pretty much everyone else hooked. :D Laaaveeet!

Anyways, time to watch!! *excited*

Doctor Stranger + You’re All Surrounded: So far, so damn goood!
Maybe I’m a bit biased, but that’s all I’ll ever be when it comes to such top-of-the-line dramas. Sadly, because these two are currently airing in Korea, I can’t do a drama-thon. On the flip-side, with watching currently-on-air dramas, comes the suspense, speculation and excitement at each new episode.
Initially, because I was also trying to finish up with The Greatest Love -which I barely crawled through (review to come!) - I was only gonna watch Seung Gi-oppa and Seung Won’s You’re All Surrounded. However in one of our random twitter convos, my friend told me he’s also watching Doctor Stranger aside from YAS. Another friend was watching it too, so I figured I should try it out. Boy, was I thankful after watching the first episode. :D
We’re currently past midpoint in the two dramas (Both was said to have 20 episodes or more) and oh man, we, viewers, are totally in for a treat!! WHY, YES THANK YOU SBS! Both stories are slowly unfolding nicely, with no dull moment and only a hint of mystery and excitement to spare. Before anything else, let me just say, Lee Jong Suk is perfect for the brilliant and quirky surgeon that is Park Hoon(ie!) in Doctor Stranger. Just perfect *fanmode, duh*. 
I love Park Hoon’s strong yet not-all-serious persona because it gives light to the challenges and villains in the story. Whenever he smirks, in a way, he’s telling the viewers, “Don’t worry, I got this.” or the famed “Come at me bro!” I think I’ve unconsciously applied it to myself, so now I’m less stressed when it came to work and all other personal affairs. Ha, Kdrama therapy? LOL

Confession: I blame this drama for putting me in this ‘academic crisis’ right now, trying to decide whether or not I should continue on with nursing or go big with med school. And then there’s that stint to teach English in Korea too. Ugh, decisions. Never too late for both!

A few highlights of this drama so far:
Quack couple! MOST DEF! :D Soo hyun and Park Hoon looks so much better than their ‘supposed’ couples! Quack couple, fighting! 
The story has such a strong foundation. Episode 1 and 2.. the feels. 
After watching a few episodes several times (yes, I’m on that level na) I’m starting to get the feeling that Han Seung Hee, is not THE Jae Hee, Park Hoon knew. 
Episode 11 was whaaaack. :D Quack shippers, isn’t sinking afterall. Love love love the comedy joined in. 
Dat kiss with Jae Hee though. I’ve said this on twitter, I’ll say it again, Lee Jong Suk is a good kisser. It’s soooo good, I felt it while watching. :P
Now that I’ve done it, maybe weekly recaps of the shows I’m currently watching is a good idea. In bullet-form though. I can’t do what girlfriday or gummimochi can on dramabeans. They’re too pro. :D Thank you btw for giving us wonderfully written recaps!
Oh, before I forget. Seung Gi oppa! Get well soon! :’( I was so excited for the pre-empted Episode 10 of You’re All Surrounded (Gah, such a good cliffhanger), but us fans and viewers will have to wait till Thursday because Seung Gi oppa got injured!  Tsk tsk. The doctors are right, take some rest from the filming and take care of those eyes! 
Park Hoon & Eun Dae Gu (Ji Yong-ie!), FIGHTING! :D

You gotta start somewhere

Hi! I was gonna clean my room, edit a video and watch a korean drama today. However, due to schedule changes (dinner with family from Ohio), a nap that was uncalled for and my genuine laziness, obviously, di natuloy lahat ng yun. As a matter of fact, I’m only on the first part of today’s agenda, and it’s already 12:54AM. 

It was quite a struggle getting me started.. I dazed off for minutes, went downstairs and ate some yogurt to ease this bloated feeling I’m having, but to no avail. And then I told myself while staring at a pile of clothes that needed sorting, “Okay, you know what, you gotta start somewhere.”

And so I did.

A few tasks later, I find I needed more than just self-talk, and so here I am blogging the way it should be, not just with getting things done or checking off your to-do lists, but with life as well:

If you wanna go somewhere, do something, be something,
You gotta start somewhere. ;)

Alright kiddos? That should be it for now.. I still have a lot things to “get started on”. Toodles!

My last recorded Sunday Currently was 9 months ago. Can you imagine? And this was just the third one. Haaay, when life happens nga naman oh. Time passes by so fast, next thing you know it’s June 1. We’re approximately halfway through the year! This just makes me realize how much I need to step up in everything else.
Reading: This article about exercise balls. I recently traded my black IKEA office chair for my pink exercise ball. I heard it’s good for posture, reminds me to exercise, and brightens up the room (haller, pink? San ka pa?). Multi-purpose lang mga te. Winner!
Writing: a list of future blog topics in my head. Because I’m finally getting back on my blogging! Woot!
Listening: to the night breeze through my window and my typing.
Thinking: of pushing through with my plan to go to Korea for teaching. I’m serious about it.. and If things go well, I’ll be leaving for Korea on March 2015.
Smelling: my cookies and cream scented candle from IKEA. <3
Wishing: I find a better job. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful I even have a job. But I want something pertaining to what I majored in. Otherwise, it’s a waste of a degree. Really. I started paying for my student loan, on this job, and It’s discouraging, thinking how far I’ve gone with my degree (obviously, not very far..) as of yet. :/ It’s mainly the reason why I’m totally considering Korea.
Hoping: for a better tomorrow and a better world. NAKS.
Wearing: pambahays. Knee-length sweats and a loose-fitting pink t-shirt.
Loving: the kdramas You’re All Surrounded and Doctor Stranger. Seriously, where do you get your ideas PDs? TBH all kdramas in general have their ways of luring us in. 어떻게?
Wanting: extra time for my dramas and language studies. Call me a nerd, but I love learning new things. :P
Needing: some exercise. I’ve only gone to the gym once last week. Gotta step it up!
Feeling: EXCITED. :)
Clicking: the tabs on my firefox browser. :D
It’s funny how I’d always end up planning in the middle of the week, and then look forward to doing them the coming Monday. Must be my OC-ness acting up. Anyways, tomorrow’s Monday.. Time for some real, live-action planning. ;)
