Jonghyun (SHINee) - Y si fuera Ella (Eng sub)

Image
Who knew that he suffered so much and yet he managed to hide them through his bright and jovial nature.  I was recommended by youtube and when I heard the song, it has such a beautiful melody to it and not until I saw this translated version.  Looking at how passionate he was with this song and only knowing about this song especially after his passing, in a way I felt some of his anguish and heartache; and how much he yearned to be loved and listened to.😒😒
I have seen his rendition of the same song when he first debuted back in 2008 but it was nothing like this.   πŸ˜­πŸ˜’













RIP Kim Jong Hyun | Breathe

Image
I was totally surprised when I read the news of his tragic demise last night.  Am not a fan of Shinee but he was gone too soon at 27 years old.    I first saw him in We Got Married (one of the variety program in South Korea) when one of the member "married" another member from the group Apink.  He seems bright and cheerful and always seem to be the happiest. The happiest always seem to suffer the most.  I began to watch some of their videos and listening to their songs.  He is such a super talented artist but it seems that he was battling depression badly which lead to his death yesterday. Whatever it is, I hoped he did find his peace finally.  You are like a candle lighting the others whereas you are actually suffering deeply. Good people like Jong Hyun are like candles, they burn themselves up to give others light.  RIP Jong Hyun, you can finally rest now.

2AM "Never let you go(죽어도 λͺ»λ³΄λ‚΄)" M/V

Once upon a time, many moons ago I came across this particular song and I sort of fell in love with the melody and when I knew the meaning of the song, it is really a tragic song but the melody is calming.  Anyway,  I wanted to listen this beautiful ballad.

Its coming to the end of 2017 and still missing the lovebirds. Somehow, I was free the last few weeks to watch the complete episodes and ya, they seem real though.  Wishing that their ship is sailing.

A year older, a year wiser?

Today I am officially 49 years, another step to reach 50. Hmmmmmm..... Honestly, I don't feel that old but the body seemed to fail me now.  Can't say much huh!..hehehe   Anyway, I have been getting birthday wishes since midnight, happy for all those thought from friends all over. 
Looking back over the years, I have been through a lot of struggle. I learned a lot throughout those struggles and has learn to accept things as they are and to always have a positive thinking.  Its not easy but I found it to be working lately.  You will always have to fight and beat your own demon within you no matter, that itself is already a huge battle you have to face everytime you need to decide on something that is crucial in your life.
Enough of ranting for the day.  Happy birhday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me.

My previous review DOTS.  Apparently their love blossomed throughout the filming.

Law of the Jungle

As always, a late bloomer for  things happening around me. I just found out about this program a few months ago and I must admit I am a big fan of this programme already.  During my leisure hours, I would watch the old episodes and it is a very interesting program as you get to see some of the selected Kpop celebrities experiencing some gruesome and tough environment at selected locations around the world.  After watching a few earlier episodes, I can say that the ones the Amazon is very tough.  As their journey for survival unfolds, I was cringing and having goosebumps all over.  Well, am not going to spare details, I guess you just have to watch it yourself.

Quiet weekend.

Image
Nothing much to do. After cooking these dishes for lunch, I called a neighbour to check on my car. And now am waiting for the mechanic to reply my messages. Well..at times things just go wrong at the same time.  Perfect timing indeed as the roadtax is due for renewal this 25th.
My favourite, Sambal Terung.  
Been craving to cook this Ayam Masak Kunyit for ages and finally I did.  Mum complained it was a tad bit salty.

Bored and missing TaeBom Couple

This is as simple as it gets. Was planning to cook chicken today when I saw this mackerel in the freezer, first thing on my mind was masak asam..  so walla...and not forgetting my favourite kerabu nenas or in English Pineapple Salad.
Its been a quiet weekend so far apart from baking Brownies for a friend.  As I am still missing Choi Tae Joon and Apink Bomi fondly known as TaeBom couple, I spent the time by watching their previous episodes again. Yes.again and again.  Managed to cheer myself up but still teary whenever I saw them.

TaeBom Farewell Favourites

https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/t50.2886-16/17194638_1147863558656007_1479285636954324992_n.mp4

Don't know why, but I just love this particular one.  On the surface, both seems unbelievably calm but only God know what's going through their minds and heart at the moment.  Love the way they talk and look at each other. When Bomi (she looked sad though) asked Tae Joon whether he was wearing the ring, Tae Joon answered and showed his ring and then he reached for Bomi's hand and rubbed Bomi's ring and fingers lovingly.  I especially love how Tae Joon looked at Bomi while rubbing Bomi's ring finger lovingly.  That look was mindblowing. For a while I thought I was watching some kind of love story.  That was the 'moment' for me.
Even the MCs felt it too, all were saying the couple were different that day.

😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞
Looking at this particular picture, I get that positive vibe and Bomi is really good at self-controlling her emotions here.  She's hiding it all beneath the smile and the laughters..Tae Joon is himself, sweet, romantic and loving.  


Tae Joon will surely missed putting his hand over her head apart from calling her Yeobo.  Ohhh...so unfair, such a beautiful loving couple makes you cry.  Its not even a real marriage but both gave such a real vibe to the audience that some of us find it hard to letgo of them ....so soon..........

Shy girl Bomi.

To TaeBom couple, you have made me wait to watch you over the weekend for the last 7 monts.  As much I wanted to see both of you longer in WGM, I pray that both of you will be successful in your future endeavours and please go for some real dating please.  Both of you are meant to be for each other.

May your ship sail smoothly, stay and support each other in trouble times and do find it…

My love for TaeBom Couple

Today, I am dedicating this entry strictly for my favourite MBC We Got Married Couple, the TaeBom Couple.

 A visit to Bomi's house and making Kimchi together.
 Their Wedding Photoshoot   Bomi's first kiss to Tae Joon.. He worked hard for it and suffered too.  Anyway, its all in the name of love right Tae Joon?
 Their first household shopping  Proudly showing off the lipstick marks on his cheek.  
 Their first hike soon after their marriage.
 Looking through some old pictures of Bomi and getting jealous unnecessarily.
Celebrating at the Couple Game.  Look at those sparkling faces.

Nasik aruk Kimchi

No need to go to Korea or a Korea restaurant to have simple dish like this Fried Rice Kimchi. Lol..and yes..its yummylicious to me la...sik tauk lidah ktk org. Since I have some of the basic core ingredients for a Korean dish, I prepared this simple meal. It has sesame oil, home-made Spinach Kimchi, Gochujang, garlics and seaweed. Tadaaa..my version..oh and not forgetting my spicy cili padi just to give it a tad Malaysian touch it.  The only thing missing was fried egg. Well..next time ..perhaps..till then....nom nom nom

TOMMY PAGE - A Shoulder To Cry On [Original Music Video]

Image
It was a shocking news to me when I saw the passing of Tommy Paige who was famous for "A shoulder to cry on".  The song was very popular in the late 80s and I remembered how some of the girls at the hostel would sing along and turning the volume of the radio loudly. Those were how it was back in my ITMCS days in Semenggok in 1988.  How I missed those carefree days with friends.  I suddenly realised how time flies through my fingers swiftly.  As the saying goes..Time waits for no one.

Image
Being a fan of Tae Joon and Bomi when they were virtually married the last 7 months, I was devastated that their virtual marriage ended yesterday. Still teary and sad..I have yet to move on. I find this couple to be real somehow, they exude such a sincerity that you could somehow felt just by watching.
We Got Married is one of the many variety programs which is very popular in South Korea. The program pair up single celebrities to experience marriage life. I have been following the program for quite a while now.  Some couple seems so real and some seems to be mismatched...lol.  So far only one couple really got married. While others remain friends, some became awkward due to pressures from their respective fans. 
My favourite couple so far are YongSeo couple, 2Young couple and now Tae Joon and Bomi. I am not sure whether 2Young couple is actually dating after WGM..but I could sense that both are still dating.  As for Bomi and Tae Joon..my sincere wish that both of them should continu…

Fefeeling Korea gilak so today I decided to try Bulgogi. With the help of ever reliable uncle Google, I began to study the various recipes of Bulgogi (yes..I studied and go through the recipes thoroughly and all the recipes have one common thing and that is brown sugar. I guess the recipe is sweet so gave it a try). Plus and minus from different recipes I came up with whatever ingredients I have. And the verdict is..tadaaa..as per the picture below. It is sweet from the brown sugar and strawberry jam (in substitution for honey and Pear).  Of course I can always use honey but I wanted something different. I read some of the reviews and the use of sweet jams and sugary syrups was recommended. Love it and will try making Bimbibap with the Bulgogi.

Saturday ramblings

Weekends are the only time I can cook a proper meal for the whole family and most of the time I would dish up something extra. Nevertheless, maybe to some these meals are simple but to my mum its otherwise. She always look forward to this. She has been taking care of my bedridden 37 year old brother for the last 3 years and she appreciates this kind of meal so much.  Am no chef nor a good cook but I am proud to say that I can whip up decent meals for the whole family and that to me is enough.  Enough of ramblings for now. I have errands to settle.

The 4th day of January 2017, weather is gloomy and its raining cats and dogs now. At times, a lot of things goes through my mind that I wish I could blog about it.  I used to carry a small notebook in case some crazy ideas might suddenly popped out of nowhere.  And everytime I drafted something, it might end as a draft only and some might make it to the blog.  Sigh!!!!  Pathehic sik? 






Hello 2017.

Image
My first post for 2017.  I don't expect much in 2017 but praying for much better and peacful life.  It has been a 2016 struggle for me and the whole family.  Nevertheless, am keeping my head high up to face come what may.  

Cooked simple dish for dinner as everyone seems to be in sombre mood somehow.  Anyway, these simple dish of salted bitter mustard and omelet is among the many of my favourite simple dish.  Missing the cili padi of course which I can't go without.
