Urgent Calling: #KoreaTrip

Image
Every body keep asking me when did I manage to sneak away from my daily routine to give myself free time outside the country for the whole week. Well, actually it was an unplanned trip.

It was because of my Korean student who kept buzzing me with the questions when I would visit South Korea. I said I would visit South Korea on March 2015. I was planning to go on march next year. So, I've started saving since the beginning of this year. Saving was quite hard since I needed much for the airfare. I did not get any free airline tickets from Garuda because I've reached 25 last March. Sad, huh?

It was around September that I've been asked to go on October. I was jaw-dropping. I did not believe myself that I could really go that fast. Giving myself several days to think, I mustered up courage to apply the visa. I said to myself that I would really go after my visa was issued. The process of making visa was so smooth. I remembered I did not have any had time until the issue date h…

Fated To Love You (Korean Version)

This drama is over for quite some time yet I still am not moving on. I watched it accidentally when I looked what kdrama was happening at the time. My eyes were kept by the title "Fated to Love You". Somehow the title tickled my curiosity as to what the story would be.

The female lead was Jang Na Ra (playing Mi Young). I've seen her in School 2013 and I thought she was so-so. Although she did move my heart in her scenes there. SO I did not expect her much in this new drama FTLY. While the male lead (playing Lee Gun) was someone I did not know before. It's the first time I saw him on drama.

So I know that the story was an imitating of original Taiwanese drama. I did not bother myself to watch the original version as I love kdrama much. I think this drama was good. I like a good romantic comedy. Funny in some parts, heartbreak in other parts. Mostly, I could relate to their characters. And it showed daily problems.

Mi Young's character was so pure. She could not he…

Hong Kong Day 4: Feel Blessed

Soooo.. this will be the last story of my previous trip to Hong Kong. Yes, I've had only 4 days to explore Hong Kong. Yet, I feel grateful for the time I was being here. :D (psst, read the previous stories of Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 by clicking it. Enjoy!)

Facing series of fortunate and unfortunate events in Hong Kong makes me realized that I have to expect less but sense more. People say that universe shows us more when we expect less. So, in my last day of Hong Kong, I expected less. I just wanted to enjoy every second of my last day there.

We headed to Tung Chung Station to get to Tung Chung Cable Car where it would deliver us up to Ngong Ping Village. We chose to take the crystal cabin on the go to experience astonishing bird's eye view of enchanting deep blue sea and lush green mountainside underneath our feet. Though, we had a little scared inside that it might not be able to support our heavy weight. Haha. Once we're inside crystal cabin car, we could not stop holdi…
