Insadong

I have neglected or more like gave up in updating my blog. However lately I have the urge to write! Type and deleted post on Facebook and Twitter...I guess my blog is the best place to put down my thoughts. 

So, ya HELLO! *clean up spiderweb and dust* 

Korea, a city where I would like to study and work at. I love its culture, maintaining traditional and modern elements in their architecture. Brilliant! 

Insadong is a place where a tourist must visit in Seoul. This is where you buy souvenirs that represent Seoul. It is filled with antique shops, art galleries, traditional stationery shops,  handicraft shops, potter and porcelain shops, bookstores and art supply stores. It is the home to many traditional restaurants and tea houses. 




















Ssamziegil was designed in such a way that it connects alleys in spiral-like stairway. You can get a clear view of the sky as you do your shopping.
















Love this area as it has traditional touch to its architecture. You can imagine there are people wearing hanbok at market place back in Joseon era :)

Direction: Anguk station, 15 minutes walk from station

Right path


I wonder what's right, what's wrong.

There are so many choices in life and I admit I was spoiled. I always have plans before making any decisions, however, only God knows why those plans don't go accordingly.

Whenever I make certain decisions which supported by dear parents, if things don't go well negative feedback will be thrown back to me. What happen to the supportive duo?

I do not know what to do anymore. Just give me an opportunity oversea and I will work my ass off and endure whatever I have to.

*back to speechless life*

CNY Haul










CNY is not a festival that I look forward to, I don't know why...the only reason that I'm happy during CNY is to meet my cousins and friends. Most of them are in KL but strangely we don't meet each other.

I thought I do not have new clothes for CNY, I was wrong. I have forgotten the clothes I bought from Seoul last year which is still in my luggage bag. Hehehe...ya, I kept it in the luggage bag on purpose ironically that's why I forgot its existence too.

Since I have new clothes from Seoul trip, I bought a few more pieces to complete the collection. (shopaholic's excuses). Well, I guess I went overboard on shopping for new clothes. On the bright side, I have more pieces to mix and match. This means I have more outfit photos to fill this space ^_______^

Photos were taken from Instagram hence the poor quality, sorry! Follow me on Instagram, @jotheluckystar

Which outfit do you like the most?

Korean Movies

Lately, I have ran out of Korean dramas to watch. Most of the new dramas don't interest me. I only watch "Cheongdamdong Alice" which is ending soon, unfortunately. 

So, my next option would be Korean movies. Did my research and I have a list of movies that I can't wait to watch and share it here :) I'm a sucker for horror and romance plot! So you get the picture of what kind of movies I will be sharing here. 

Two sisters who, after spending time in a mental institution, return to the home of their father and cruel stepmother. Once there, in addition to dealing with their stepmother's obsession and unbalanced ways, an interfering ghost also affects their recovery. 

There's twist towards the ending. INTERESTING =D

Unable to have children of their own, married couple Mi-sook and Do-il adopt a yong boy named Lee Jin-seong. The boy is drawn to an acacia tree in his new home's backyard, believing it to be his mother, and it soon becomes the focal point of an increasing number of strange occurrences when Jin-seong appears to have runaway. 

Jin-seong experienced many emotional difficulties and becomes more withdrawn and confused when Mi-sook becomes pregnant and has a new baby named Hae-sung. 

Sad for Jin-seong for what he has experienced. Parents please don't neglect your adopted child especially when you have a new baby. Your adopted kid is not a toy.

Im Jung Hwa was saddled with temporary blindness after surviving from a car accident that killed her parents. She works as a customer service representative. Jang Chul-min was a former boxer who quit the profession and settled to being a merciless bounty hunter. 

When two of them met each other, Jang Chul-min found motivation to start his life in good faith again. He took responsibility of a blind woman's heart. 

Enough of horror movies, I need some romance to balance up. Always, love story is not always about prince and princess living happily ever after. It is about two hearts are linked and love each other even with their eyes close.

Besides that, So Ji Sub is handsome! <3

A man and a woman become pen-pals  man receives her letter in his mailbox. They soon find out that they're living two years apart; he in the past, and her in the future. This is how a parallel-time love story started. 

This is the original version of "The Lake House". The American version was one of my favourite movie which I can watch a million times and still not sick of it. I was wrong, the original version which is the Korean version I have just watched is even better!

It is melancholic, but warm. Although it might be ridiculous to communicate and fall in love with someone from the past, but somehow it just feels real. The story line has been my favourite as it is unlike the romance movies out there.

Soo-jin who has everything and was born with a silver spoon gets dumped by her already-married boyfriend. She tries to get over him and forget. One day she bumps into a poor carpenter, Cheol-soo whose only goal in life is to become an architect, and she becomes attracted to him. They finally fall in love and happily married. Now that she thinks she found the right one, she has to face the undeniable fact that she has a disease which is erasing her memories...

Good to see how loving they are despite Cheol-soo's cool character, it is even sweeter to see how he treats Soo-jin. I cried a bucket over this movie; when one truly love another, love is amazing.
