[Gmarket Haul] Quick reviews!

If you clicked the link expecting Korean textbook reviews, I'm sorry. I think you have to wait a little more :P. It's been quite some time since my last Gmarket haul (post), I went to google and found that I blogged about my first Gmarket purchase in 2010!! I can only lament that time really flies. Based on my sporadic Gmarketing experiences over the years, I've learnt not to buy items where the quality of the real products can differ…

永恆

剛看完施定柔的《結愛·異客逢歡》, 感覺心裡悶悶的,索性跑來寫部落格。想了想,還是分不清心裡鬱悶的原因。說實在的,我並不太喜歡這本小說,故事人物不怎麼討喜。也許是因為作者也沒有深刻的勾畫出每個人物。看完了故事,感覺對他們還是很陌生。人物的設定雖然有趣,但就是少了一些什么。 ----- 一个人在家的午後總是寧靜的。沒有無謂的喧鬧,整個人也能靜下心來。趴在沙發上,打打字,算是一個過得比較愜意的下午。只希望下午的時間能過得慢一些,這片刻的幸福能夠再久一些。就很知足了。 很多事情,都需要持之以恆的努力。部落格寫了十年,以為不常打理還是會有一定的讀者。但是剛瞄了一下訪客數據,這裡算是成了一片荒地。(笑)另外,雖然我的日文一向來也不能說很好,但至少看小說還是沒問題的。但這一兩年完全把它擱在一邊,現在看小說還是非常吃力的。 這種需要重新建起的感覺真的很不好,也不容易。它時時刻刻的提醒我 -- 是我放手了,是我不努力,是我沒有持之以恆。這樣的認知是殘酷的。但我還是必須面對,告訴我自己,我可以從新再來。:) 沒有什麼是永恆的。好的,壞的,終究還是會過去的。

57th TOPIK Results

It has become a routine of some sorts, to post about TOPIK results every two years or so! :) It was my 5th time (starting to lose count!) taking TOPIK and I think it was my 3rd level 6 pass! Well, I know there are a few camps of thoughts on TOPIK. It's debatable how accurate it reflects "real" proficiency, whether there's any "use" in the exam and if it means anything. Personally, I treat TOPIK as a milestone, to…

57th TOPIK II Experience and tips

It's the mandatory TOPIK experience post again. Probably my 5th! It's so surreal how fast time passes and it's already my 5th time taking TOPIK. For readers who like to ask why I would spend money to re-take it every two years, I just like to keep my certificate valid as I would never know when I need it. It's also an activity that I look forward to every two years (ya I love taking language tests!!), and more importantly,…

Rediscovery

Rediscovering my love for Korean novels :) What better way to start than to re-read my favourite novel! It's been 5 years or more since I bought the 3-novel set, and actually I think I've only finished the first two books, and was halfway through the third novel. Seems like just yesterday when I was writing about how much I love these books. It's quite interesting to re-read again. I still stumble over pretty much the same words that I…
