함부로 애틋하게 Uncontrollably Fond (Korean Drama)

Uncontrollably Fond

Uncontrollably Fond is a melodrama first and foremost. That means there will be tonnes of heart-aching and brain-pulling moments. Remember that!!! I think many people forget this point and dive into this drama thinking it’ll be lovely-dovey on beds of roses without the thorns. How can you not think like that when it starred the tall and handsome Kim Woo Bin and nation’s first love, Suzy? My advice: dive into this melodrama without any expectation and you’ll be really okay.

When I first heard news about this pairing I was ecstatic *literally jumping with so much joy*. Now whose brainy idea was that to put them together? You are brilliant! Basically I’ve been waiting for Kim Woo Bin to play the leading man since School 2013. As for Suzy, I first saw her in Dream High and have been a fan. She’s so beautiful. 🙂

Growing Avocado Trees From Seeds

I mentioned about sharing my experience on growing avocado trees from seeds back in June in my growing vegetables & fruits from kitchen scraps post. So here it is, nearly 3 months later. Although not much I’ve gain in terms of experience except to see my beloved avocado trees growing bigger and stronger.

Before I divulge more, let me tell you the story on how it got started.

Back around Feb-Mar this year, my sis attempted growing avocado with this peculiar technique of poking the seed with toothpicks and let it half-submerged in a glass of water. If you google ‘grow avocado’, you’ll see many search results using this method. My sis’ attempt was a failure. Nothing grew.

So I told her why not just plant the seed directly to the soil? The most straight forward method. Hah! She followed my advice and wah la…

Master – God Of Noodles, Becky’s Back & Beautiful Mind

These three Korean dramas did good in feeding my entertainment needs for the past couple of months. Take note my mini reviews below contain spoiler.

Master – God Of Noodles
Master – God Of Noodles aka Master Of Revenge 마스터-국수의 신

I was looking forward to this revenge drama because my two favorites were in it; Chun Jung Myung and Lee Sang Yeob. This drama started off with numerous cold murders. It cringes me to the point that I realized the credit gotta be given to the actors, Baro who portrayed the young Kim Gil Do and Cho Jae Hyun as the older version. They are as if the same person to me. That cold STARE when scheming and during committing murder… gosh scary as hell man! I actually find Cho Jae Hyun/Kim Gil Do charismatic. Help me?!

Four Legged Friends

Can’t believe I didn’t blog for a month! Not that I don’t want to. My laptop nowadays a bit gilar-gilar (crazy) and I’ve been looking for a replacement. I don’t know to go for Dell (so underspec & wifi on/off problem for the model that suit my budget) or Acer (people complain chassis no good? izzit? good spec though). Any recommendation?

Okay, let’s come back to the real reason I write this post.

There’s this house in my neighborhood with several dogs. When I used to bring Chester for walks, we almost never went pass the house because it was d@mn scary. They don’t only bark, they slam at the fence (ya know how gangster slam at walls? that kinda feeling) and sometimes they can magically break free from the compound and come chase us. One of my last memories of taking Chester for walk were being chased by them. But because I decided to be brave that one fine day, I decided to chase them back. I ran towards them with Chester in tow and shouting in high-pitched voice. And just like that they fled. I knew it was dangerous but I gotta do it.
