Bunny Key

and so today I received my first birthday gift from someone I least expected it from…because we had a period of “not befriending each other” to “not-contacting each other” to “just-allowing-time-to-do-its-thing” (for my case) and now “a-gift-that-says-happy-birthday, can-we-be-friends-again”?

Yes, it’s bunny-related. Not that I’m complaining but I’m always getting bunny gifts. Muahaha!

A simple, cute and heart-warming gift. The bunny’s stomach has got a keychain and you can slip the keychain in or out to get your keys. Just imagine the bunny is protecting the key and only the owner, which is me, has the privilege to retrieve it. I don’t know how to explain and I’m writing in the middle of the night and I’m overdosed with Korean songs and have not since recovered from my hangover of “Best Love/Greatest Love” Korean drama….so pardon me.

And when I thought I’m the only crazy one…I heard someone humming my favourite song as of now in the office. When I left work today, I made a stop at her workstation and asked her about the drama, of which the  OST she was humming to. It’s so nice to have someone sharing something you like.

그만 자자 (Let’s get some sleep!)

Bliss

It’s rare that I get to come to work later. I totally loved it when I woke up listening to the pitter patter of the raindrops. I laid out the yoga mat which I’ve not touched for close to 3 months. Did my stretches. Ate my apple while watching the last half of Ice Age 3 on TV. Had a nice warm bath. Dressed nicely. Pumped petrol and went to work. When I arrived, everyone was out for lunch so I get to enjoy the quietness for a while.

I went down to tabao my lunch. Worked while listening to some lovely Korean songs.

This is what I call bliss. ( ̄ー ̄)

한국어 (Korean Language)

Why do most of the Korean drama series OST always sound so nice?

I used to just listen to them but not understand a word.

I still don’t understand the whole song but I understand a few words and there. But I’m starting to dig into it. Looking at lyrics, I don’t rely on romanization anymore, I want to train myself to read purely hangul (Korean characters).

I’m able to understand some words too when I watch Korean drama now. I have my little “a-ha!” moments and it feels great.

Really, I’m just loving the learning language more day by day. If you ask me why…I don’t have a specific reason. I just…you know..like it.

It keeps me occupied. Keeps my mind away from problems I don’t want to think about. I’m in deep shit now so when I just want to just not think about anything, I flip open my file and start working on my Korean lesson homework. I listen to songs. Actually I like doing homework now. I’m the kind who likes to study. As long as I have something to learn, I’m happy.

I have to stay back at night to attend a conference call tomorrow so I’m going to have a dinner with a friend, who’s working at the opposite office tower. After dinner, we are going to study Korean together. Then, I’ll head back to the office.

Because I’ve been writing about my Korean learning journey lately, I think it should have a category for it – Learning Korean.

최고의 사랑

Today is totally a me-day.

Went for Korean class as usual. Came home and watched the remaining 6 episodes of the 16-episode Korean drama “Greatest Love”. Feel totally unhealthy because I was watching it for 6 hours straight but….I just couldn’t help it. This drama just got me hooked on!

A very heart-warming, funny and light-hearted drama. I’m in love with the actor, Cha Seung-Won (차승원). I wouldn’t say he’s drop-dead handsome but he melts my heart. His character is cool and funny at the same time. There were scenes that just make you tear a little but it’s the kind of cry I like, makes me warm and fuzzy inside.

I enjoy the thrill of following through each episodes, and when you know you are left with just a few more to go, you keep telling yourself you need to rest or go to bed because it’s time up but then you tell yourself to just watch a little bit more, or one episode more…and when you reach the last episode, you can’t wait to know how it’s going to end but when it’s approaching the last few minutes, you know it’s going to end soon and it’s like you are going to graduate from this drama-watching session. And when it’s finally over, there’s this nice feeling that showers upon you. When you realise again that it’s finally over, probably a few hours later, you feel something is missing and that there is nothing to catch anymore, no episodes to watch. Another new drama series to catch you’d say? But I think I’m going give it a break….(I will see how long I can stand!!)  I think I will be safe because I have nothing on my to-watch-list.

Good night, my love, wherever you are.
