The grass on the other side

As usual, I'll start the post by apologising for my absence and the lack of substantial content for the past months. It's a Saturday night. I'm at home doing some e-learning module (I feel like I'm back in school :')) while listening to song covers online. Trying to make the best of the (busy) circumstances and feeling thankful that I'm still able to enjoy some comforts in life. At least I'm lounging on the sofa with my MacBook instead of aching…

怎麼就只有黑的

今天需要參加婚禮。打開衣櫃時,愣了一下。怎麼全是黑的。😦 而且都是上班用的。參加同事婚禮,穿得跟上班一樣,有點囧吧。 再打開另一個衣櫃,終於看到一些顏色。 白色系列。還有一件非常顯眼的大紅色的裙子(呃,還是上班用的)。 都不合適。 忙活了一陣,最終找到了一件淺紫色系的。猜對了,當然還是上班用的🙃。 為了看起來有稍微一點點不一樣,刻意戴了耳環和戒指。 好吧。 真的沒差。 上班去咯!

Happy 9th anniversary

I have been blogging for 9 years. 😱 It doesn't seem that long ago... When I first started the blog on a whim, wanting to talk about my love for Korean dramas (and hence the URL). When I decided that I would prove everybody (and myself) wrong that I could self-study Korean, without the need to attend expensive classes or to go overseas. When I was soooo excited that I could finally go to Korea, something that I didn't think…

Books and joy

Friday night and I'm down with a bad stomach flu. Decided to give myself a (well-deserved) break and dedicated the evening to my books. Books bring more joy to me than anything else. When I'm feeling down, a book haul cheers me up more than any other type of shopping. Maybe that's why I have too many books at home ><. But I never learn, I just bought more stuff off g-market and I'm super excited to receive the items.…
