My friend Stephanie gave me this cute cellphone accessory ans told me that it reminded her of me (because they know I'm very enthusiastic about Korea...hahahaha!):

thanks Steph!!! :D
A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty,

He said…no.

She asked him if he would want to be with her forever….

and he said no.

She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry,

and once again he replied with a no.

She had heard enough.

As she walked away, tears streaming down her face

The boy grabbed her arm and said…

You’re not pretty you’re beautiful.

I don’t want to be with you forever.

I NEED to be with you forever.

And I wouldn’t cry if you walked away…I’d die…

Quidditch has an entry on Encarta Dictionary

So...... I was looking in the Encarta Dictionary for some words starting with Q....... (I just felt like learning new words..... hahahaha) and then..... I saw "Quidditch" on the list... I thought it meant something different aside from being "a game played with bludgers, a quaffle and the golden snitch with teams composed of chasers, keepers, beaters and the seeker." But I was surprised when I clicked on the word to look at the meaning...... Here I took a screenshot of it:

just click on the image for larger view....

Boxy little houses with peaked roofs, each with the same apple tree in front and the same reddish pricker bush, as the neighborhood children called them, at the side of the walk. It was, infamously, the town where children coming home from school went into the wrong house, indistinguishable by them from their own.

He broke the record.

One of my "guy" classmates then broke the record of my first dance. I would now finally won't leave the "who was your first dance?" question on slambooks blank.

For this school year, I won as the Supreme Student Council President. Since our school does not hold JS Proms...... I tried asking the administration to allow us to hold a Student's Night(it's the same with Promenades.... just a little different...). But my request was denied due to some reasons(which I will no longer discuss, because it's along story that starts about five to six years ago....)

So..... our teacher gave us the chance to have a mini Prom and experience the thrill of having a "first dance."

I really didn't realized it at once. If my classmate wouldn't have asked me if "he" was my first dance.... i might have not noticed it at all. I think it's because I don't know why he asked me to dance, knowing that he presently has a girlfriend. And another, there's no kilig feeling at all. It actually felt a bit awkward specially the feeling of his arms on my waist......eeeeeeeeee

Oh yeah, if you're wondering why we got to do these things; we're celebrating Teacher's day on school... and after the program we prepared for our teacher, we had our Valentine Program today since we won't be going to school tomorrow.

And if "you" accidentally stumble on this page,(but I think that's impossible....) thanks for the dance :D i forgot to tell you that a while ago....

Oh happy day!

Oh yes!

Its a happy, lucky day! Our math teacher gave us boardwork... which was done by groups...... so.... there were five groups...... each group had to reach a score of 100 to get exempted in our Final exams...... each answer gives your group ten points..... and luckily... all groups reached 100 points! Our class is exempted!

The killer Friendster bulletin

You might have already been a victim of this kind of Friendster bulletin:

"Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

If you don't repost this your (whoever that is) will die!"

You know, there might only be me and you alive today if the bulletins in Friendster which usually end with "You're mom/dad/love (or whomever they want to kill....) will die if you don't repost this!" were true. Many children must have already been orphans and many husbands must have lost their wives or maybe most women are already widowers.....

Augh. I don't get it why they do that. Maybe they're just really IMMATURE.

Hmm..... what if that "someone" who the bulletin aimed to "kill" died in coincidence and I decided to sue the one who posted the bulletin to be responsible? and if my lawyer asks me for evidence I'll show that person's bulletin? and what if I end my Friendster bulletin next time with: "The humanity will die if you don't repost this!"?

Hahahaha! of course I won't! I'm not a part of Friendster's immature community!

Corner with Love

Corner with Love is another Romance-Comedy drama I'm watching....... Corner with loves stars Show Luo and Barbie Hsu...... And so far.... I like it! (it's actually a Taiwanese drama.... hahahaha! I' messing my consistency about liking Korean dramas better than other asian ones...... but this is one of non-Korean dramas that interests me) Thus proves that I enjoy Romance-Comedy genres. Hee hee hee

Plot Summary from Wikipedia:
Qin Lang (Show Luo) works in Shanghai as a cook and dreams of becoming an artist. His speciality is cooking Oyster Omelettes. Xin Lei (Barbie Hsu) is a rich, spoiled girl, about to marry Shang Dong (Chen Zhi Kai), a rich young man. Qin Lang runs into Xin Lei's car when he's biking and that's how they meet. She learns that he is a cook, so she asks him to teach her how to cook Oyster Omelettes, because her future mother-in-law favors Taiwanese dishes. Qin Lang reluctantly agrees to teach Xin Lei but ultimately ends up cooking for the entire party. Qin Lang and Xin Lei spend time with each other and find out quickly that they have nothing in common.

Not long after, Xin Lei's parents company goes bankrupt and her parents leave her all alone, since they think her fiance, Shang Dong, will take care of her. However, Shang Dong's parents won't let him get married to Xin Lei due to her new financial situation and Shang Dong instead gets engaged to another rich heiress. Xin Lei found a letter from her parents instructing her to wait at a house they supposedly own in Taiwan. When she arrives in Taiwan, she meets Qin Lang again. They find out that the house at 69 Wu Xing Street is owned by Qin Lang's Grandma and Xin Lei eventually stays there as a tenant.

She goes job hunting, meets new friends, and finally works as a flight attendant. The manager of the hotel, Cai Xiao Yang (Lu Jia Xin) is Qin Lang's childhood friend whom has a crush on him. Cai Xiao Yang realizes that Xin Lei and Qin Lang start to fall in love with each other. Things get complicated when An Teng Feng (Dean Fujioka), a famous pianist, stays at the hotel and becomes attracted to Xin Lei. Both Xin Lei and Qin Lang resolve the situation and finally get together. When everything seems to be fine, Shang Dong reappears. He wants her back and schemes Xin Lei out of the country with Cai Xiao Yang. Qin Lang realizes what happens, follows Xin Lei back to Shanghai and woos her back. After much tears and misunderstandings, all ends happily and Qin Lang realizes his dreams and designs shoes featuring his drawings.

Barbie Hsu still looks young... she even looks prettier in this drama compared to how she looked during her Meteor Garden days.....

Hmm..... so there's going to be a Corner with Love 2....? check it: i saw it in her filmography in Wikipedia (oh yeah. I always search on Wiki. Hahahaha!)... but it's unconfirmed yet.

Camera Café Philippines

We just finished our Semi-final exams (and that was for two days but there's another one left for monday...... augh.)..... and because our exams are scheduled in the afternoon..... I got the chance to watch Camera Café while eating breakfast.... It was great to watch kasi nakakatawa at hindi lang kababawan yung jokes nila...... And it's nice to watch Filipino sitcoms wherein they speak english..... (wala lang... natutuwa lang ako... :D)

If I remember it right, the first time I saw Camera Café was during summer vacation..... I'm just not sure kung sa QTV or GMA..... I was actually waiting for the television to flash a scene from a different angle or place..... but the whole thing was just shot with that single location and angle. It felt awkward watching at first.... but I got used to it narin....

Goong (Princess Hours) gets a Philippine remake

ABS-CBN bought just bought the rights to remake MBC's hit; Goong or known in the Philippines as Princess Hours. The true Korean version was aired the Philippines December of 2006 and made a big hit (It was a jackpot for ABS. hee hee hee) and re-aired last year due to demand.

I really liked Princess Hours that it started my Kdrama addiction..... My friend suggested me to watch Romantic Princess (Taiwaese Drama) after I finished it. But I liked Korean drama better that's why I continued watching Kdramas.... until now. :D

Ok... ok... back to the topic: Princess Hours Philippine TV series. I checked Wikipedia(I mean a friend gave me a link of it....)To know what the story would look like.... and I found this line:"She attends the same school as Gian, the Crown Prince of Philippines." When did the Philippines become ruled under monarchy? (Hmmm...... I think the idea's not good..... oh well..... who knows.... ABS might be able to make it look really true... anyway it's just a TV series.)

*see Wikipedia

! actors and actresses for the lead roles; Shin Chae-Kyeong (crown princess), Yi Shin (crown prince), Yi Yool (he was originally the crown prince, a cousin to Shin), Min Hyo-rin (the girl Shin originally liked, a ballerina) are not yet announced

I'm glad to that Jiro Manio's part of the remake! :D

Opening theme: "If We fall In Love" by Yeng Constantino and Rj Jimenez

Ending theme: "Pag-ibig Na Kaya" by Rachelle Ann Go And Christian Bautista

*Pag-ibig na kaya is the Filipino translation for the original Goong's OST: Perhaps Love by HowL and J.

I'm looking forward to Princess Hours 2 and even panicked when I saw this picture months months ago on the net:

I thought it was a picture for Princess Hours 2.... (hahaha now I learned my lesson about assuming things.)

People always say "you're beautiful" when you've got that S-line body and perfect face. They always refer to the aesthetic side. So....

"In my opinion, saying 'you are beautiful' to someone who undergone plastic surgery doesn't make sense."

nor I think will that person enjoy the compliment, for she knows, deep in her heart, that it isn't she who is being appreciated but the woman whom she has conjured up in her mind.

Haven for Shoppaholics

It’s easy to assume that Koreans are not night creatures, but that is far from the truth. Not only are there many Korean restaurants open 24 hours, but you can even shop all night long if you want to! Many places don’t even open until 8PM and you can shop until the sun comes up. Alot of high school students will go social shopping with their friends at night instead of going out to a bar or night club. Generally though, these all night malls are for wholesalers, so you get a cheaper price if you shop at night. (If you are only buying one item at a time, the discount is not that great, but it's still cheaper than normal.) You would be tempted to think that these places are not crowded since it’s the middle of the night, but in Tongdaemun for example, it’s practically impossible to find parking or a taxi at some of these establishments. At midnight, some of these malls are jam-packed with store owners carrying huge bags of booty for their shops. There will also be the occasional Japanese, Chinese or Singaporean tourist there.You can come out of the clubs and go drunk shopping, or you can get off from a late night at work and go shopping! Is there anywhere else in the world where can you shop till the wee hours? Cool!

Pojangmacha (보장마차)

Mmmmm!!! I wonder what ajumma's cooking...

If you're addcited to Kdrama, I'm sure you've seen this stalls where Koreans drink bottle after bottle of sojus.

A pojangmacha is typically a restaurant on wheels. People cook food out of their trucks or vans and construct a make-shift restaurant with a tent. The walls of the restaurant are made with heavy duty plastic. A pojangmacha usually has plastic tables and chairs and has a raw charm about it. During winter months, pojangmacha owners may use kerosene heaters to warm the inside of the tent. While pojangmachas started out as a place to have a movable feast, some took the idea a bit further and decided to turn their tented restaurant into a permanent establishment. There are a few places in Apkujong near the Hak-dong intersection that are car garages by day and pojangmachas by night. There are several large, permanent pojangmachas in Hongdae where university students can snack after a night out clubbing. There are also entire streets of pojangmachas scattered throughout Seoul.
Don’t expect a nutritious three course meal at a pojangmacha, instead you will find all manner of snacks: pork dumplings (mandu), korean pizza known as chon, rice cakes covered in chili sauce (ddopoki), fish sticks, chicken liver sticks etc..
Why are pojangmachas so ubiquitous in Korea? Firstly, the price is right. The food at pojangmachas are often very cheap, since owners don’t have to pay exorbitant rents. Secondly, the atmosphere is lively and convivial. Pojangmachas are most often found clustered in areas where people are shopping, drinking and partying. You can go in there completely drunk, act loud and obnoxious and still manage to get a nice greasy meal to soak up the booze. If you want to continue drinking, most pojangmachas serve the alcoholic jet-fuel known as soju! In summary, pojangmachas are friendly places you can get cheap greasy snacks and chat with the owners or people next to you. It’s the fun atmosphere which makes pojangmachas a popular place for casual socializing.
