My love affair with Brownies

Image
I have been on a baking spree especially with Brownies the last month.  Been trying and tasting various recipes from local and foreign bloggers and I must say I am spoiled for choices, From the simple ones to the rich, decadent and gooey ones I had my fill and I am satisfied.  



My tower of Oreo Brownies.

Everyone was crazy with the wrinkled brownies at one point of time and after baking some, I realised that I have been making the wrinkled brownies the whole time.




A box of Oreo Brownies that was gone quickly.   Yes, it was wickedly rich and yummy.

Thank you to Infinite Challenge from MBC Entertainment that Sechskies is making such a grand comeback after a hiatus of 16 years. It all started in April 2016 and the group is together again (minus Ko Ji Yong who chose to stay away due to his business commitments). All of them are going to be 40 soon but looking at them now, they sure beat the young idols.

After watching them on Infinite Challenge last June, I became their fan.  This is their first single after 16 years of abrupt disbandment in 2000.  Been listening since day 1 and somehow my heart sank. I searched for their stories and 16 years later Sechskies strong fan did justice by bringing them back to the entertainment world. Of course thanks to MBC Infinite Challenge, it created the path to their come back.  And they have some beautiful ballads too.

2 Days

The first half of the progam was very inspiring and I was in tears.  It was about how an 80 year old woman achieved her dreams of completing her studies.  She was denied education to gave way for her other siblings then.  But she never stopped hoping to achieve her dreams.  And she finally did.

I have to admit having hooked to one of the many Korean Variety shows, I did some recipes inspired from them.  I did the radish tomato kimchi and its so good with noodles.  I have even tried the pancakes. Simple food, yet satisfying and healthy indeed.


My version of Radish Tomato Kimchi inspired from 3 meals a day when I saw Park Shin Hye did her tomato kimchi and both Taecyeon & Park Shin Hye prepared Radish Kimchi.  I sort of put two and two together so walla, my version.  


My scallions and green chillies pancake also inspired from 3 Meals a Day Program.  Love, love, love it.  

Back to this variety show, at times I salivate watching these guys enjoying the food.  I wonder how those camera men and those guys behind felt.

[HIT] CNBLUE - Can't Stop 유희열의 스케치북.20140314



Before watching WGM, CNBLUE was something that I never heard of.  But after watching the whole episod I began to follow their progress especially Jong Yong Hwa.  I may have been left behind for not knowing their existence I just have to blog about them.



WGM is an eye-opener indeed for me and I am really enjoying the program.  However some of the couples went overboard but some left me dazing away with their awesome chemistry.  My favourite and personal favourite is the Goguma Couple (YongSeo) and 2 Y Couple(Woo Young and Park Seo Young).  I was squealing laughing at their first interactions and cried so much when the program ended and everytime watching their episodes I still end up laughing and crying.  Most of the time I avoided watching the final episodes of both couples as it leaves my heart aching for them.



Will continue to review about these two couples soon.

Watching them in WGM previously and watching how they grew up till now makes me cry.  This couple is very special to me IMHO. Wishing and praying them all the best in their future undertakings. Aigoo...

YongSeo - Banmal song (official) ENG subs

Image
My all-time favourite WGM couple. Its been 5 years since their last episode.  I have watched the whole episode but somehow I ended up crying when they had to part seperate ways at the last episode. Maybe its just me being delusional or what but I honestly felt that  "something" indeed happened between them eventually.  But in Korea, these idols are under such heavy scrutiny by the public that they had to sacrifice their personal and emotion freedom.



Well, I still believe in this particular YongSeo ship nevertheless.

Revelation and confession time for YongSeo couple.  It has been 6 years but both still get me squealing laughing.  Opposite does attracts.  Hope this ship is sailing smoothly.  One particular ship is sailing smoothly so far, the Song2 couple ship.

English Lyrics:

Kim Dong Ryul - Drunken Truth You’re right, I may be drunk
This may be a mistake.
When morning comes, I may act like I don’t remember
And act uncomfortable around you.
But tonight there is something
That I absolutely have to say.
I apologize for my current state,
But please don’t think that I am just saying this because I am drunk. Whenever I am in front of you
I prepare myself to say this
But I always say the opposite thing,
Turn around and regret it,
But now I will declare to you
That I have loved you from the start. I love you so much
Even if my sloppy declaration
Seems corny or unbelievable,
It is not something I am just saying. I’ll probably never do something like this again
But as the night becomes light
I will hold you in my arms once again,
And tell you that I love you Why are you just smiling?
Do you hear this as a joke?
Why are you not saying a word,
But looking at me as you would a child? Whenever I am i…

Sung Si Kyung (성시경) - The Road To Me (내게 오는 길) [Eng Sub]

Killer song from Jang Woo Young  to Park Seo Young.  I know its 2016 but these kids JWY and PSY gave me the goosebumps watching them on the reality show which I only discovered recently.  I am slowly getting over DOTS but it has a special place for them.  So does the 2Young Couple.

Late bloomer but shipping for  2Young couple now.

Descendants Of The Sun Ep 1 (YooSiJin asking for a date)

Image
One of the best scene. Captain asking Beauty for a date.  He was beaming with happiness after that.

Memories of DOTS 2

Image
I am dedicating my memories of DOTS in this blog.  Still can't move on from DOTS bug though. Fans worldwide is still crazy about them and soon DOTS will be forgotten but blogging about it, here I can have my DOTS retreat anytime.

DESCENDANTS OF THE SUN Ep 13 – Double Date

One of my favourite scenes, Dumb and Dumber double date.

Descendants of the Sun - Memorable lines

Here goes, some of my favourite memorable lines from DOTS.

"Don't feel embarrassed just because I found out that you like me.
Even so, it doesn't change the fact that I like you more.." -Big Boss

I really missed you. No matter what I did, I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I tried tiring myself out. I tried hard to forget. I drank and did everything I could. But I still missed you a lot. -- Yoo SiJin

Dont scare her. Dont' talk to her. Dont touch her. It is me you should deal with. 

"Should I apologize or confess my feelings?

"I'm shutting your mouth in a sexy way"

Doctors don't have boyfriends they're too busy - Big boss
Soldiers don't have girlfriends too much hardwork- Dr.Kang
( staring at each other) 
Who will answer? - Big Boss

The faith that I have to protect children, beauties and the elderly. that is patriotism to me- Captain Yoo
"I like this guy named Yoo Shi Jin the best among all males living on this earth …
We totaled three cars…

DESCENDANTS OF THE SUN Ep 10 – Jealous Love Square

I was in stiches laughing at how both dudes were giving all sort of excuses to feign their girlfriends jealousy.  Both ladies nailed them down with the one of the best "interrogation" questions.  Really guys, don't mess with the girls ya.

How the call sign for Yippunie aka Beauty started.

Descendants of the Sun - EP 9 | Song Hye Kyo's Radio Confession

Image
KMY's sweet confession.  Another memorable and amusing one from Dr KMY.  Their chemistry is so simply fantastic.  SJK and SHK by far has one of the best on-screen chemistry and now there are my favourite on-screen couple apart from King Khan @ Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.

Descendants Of The Sun Ep 6 (Grand entrance of rescue team)

Image
Another favourite scene of mine, that "moment" that I mentioned in my earlier post. Descending from the helicopter, and with those confident powerful stride (and without making it obvious) his eyes were only searching for Dr KMY.  Even as one by one of his troops started to gather in front of him, the moment he set eyes on her that was it,  Their eyes locked and it was as if only both of them existed then. That look he gave her made by day indeed and gave me the goosebumps.

Belum let go lagik tok...

Descendants Of The Sun Ep 15 (Farewell)

Image
Another favourite scene.

Descendants Of The Sun Special Ep 2 (Unreleased Scene in DOTS)

Image
They should have added this scene.  Another sweet and memorable one.  The chemistry is so obvious and both delivered effortlessly.

Descendants of the Sun - My review

Image
I am going gu ga ga over this drama for the last two weeks.  I missed the first few episodes and was oblivious to the DOTS fever.  But when a short snippet of the scene from Episode 10 appeared in my fb timeline I was hooked. I fell In love with Captain YSJ and Dr KMY instantly. Am not a fan of Korean drama as I find them to be so dramatic and ridicilous at times.  But DOTS was totally different and I was craving for more and I was not disappointed at all.  



the Charming Captain YSJ who disobeys his superior order as he trusted Dr KMY decision to save her patient.  He definitely looks awesome in this uniform.




Captain Yoo Sii Jin practically fell head over heels with Dr Kang Mo Yun on their first meeting.  Apparently their first contact started off badly as Dr Kang thought he was the bad guy due to some misunderstanding between them.  Well if it was not for that Private Kim Ki Bum  both of them wouldn't have met to go through stormy yet beautiful kind of relationship.

Going ga ga gu gu over this drama now after Uda Dan Dara.  A love story told in a very beautiful way of how love and sacrifice plays a very important role in any relationship.

Busy lagi..

Image
Dah lamak menghilang dari alam maya, cehh...start.   Anyway, it has been a year plus since my last reshuffle.  Reaching 50 soon, I didn't expect to be transferred again, afterall I have another 12 years or so till I retire.  Say what, talking about retirement already huh?.  Yeah, the thought occured to me lately, honestly I can't wait for D day.  That is if I were to live till 60.

I am back in a very busy office compared to the last office.  Oh what the heck, you just have to do what you have to do girl.




Uda Dan Dara

Image
Following this drama now because of Zul Ariffin & Siti Saleha.  They enjoy a good chemistry over the years and I can see the chemistry in this drama is improving. Just love both of them.  This drama is adapted from the novel Uda dan Dara by Aisya Sofea(one of my favourite author).  I have read the novel but as of now, I prefer the drama version.

This particular song is my personal favourite and I can't seem to get enough of this song. And yesterday when I searched for this song, everyone seem to get the Dilwale bug.

Dilwale

Image
I am head over heels when it comes to this golden screen couple.  To me, they are by far the best onscreen couple though they denied the fact humbly.  I can rave endlessly about them and I honestly can say that they have some kind of mystical power that seems to charm their fans.  Dilwale is their 7th film together in a span of 22 years and believe me their chemistry is magical and mysterious such that I am always enchanted and get carried away at times.  Seeing them together again gives me the goosebumps, everytime without fail. Personally, I think Rohit Shetty should have explore more of their intense love story in the movie and it is unfortunate that both had to share the screen with Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon. ***sigh***

And after 15 years, 4 months and 10 days, the love stories just never end cos some can't let go and one of them is yours truly.
