Boracay babymoon (2012) - Next chapter... baby!

I have been missing from my blog and FB for months... probably because my little baby doesn't like blogging at all. The first 3 months was a nightmare, the nausea and vomiting... duh.

Now that it's growing to 20 weeks old, things have been getting better and I finally can enjoy eating.At my 14 weeks, we went on a babymoon in Boracay! A very relaxing getaway to cure my sickness during the first trimester. That was also our first ROM anniversary. :)




 Baby says HI in the tummy~

babymoon


 Till then, I do not know when will baby be in the mood to let me update my blog again... 后会有期!

Spellbound 오싹한 연애 (Chilling Romance)


A movie that made me shed tears in the plane back from Seoul.

 It is about a magician who falls in love with a woman who can see ghosts. It's unique and fresh, with a lot of surprises. A romantic comedy that rarely attracts more than 3,000,000 viewers!

 Again... a melodrama starring Son Ye-jin, my listed top 5 Korean actress! She's such a versatile actress, not afraid to cast off her nice girl image in her acting. That bagged her Best Actress honors from the prestigious Blue Dragon Film Awards and other local award-giving bodies for her portrayal of a polyandrous woman in My Wife Got Married.

 There's a whole lot of mixed feeling especially towards the end. The call from Ma Jo-goo (starring Lee Min-ki) to Kang Yeo-ri (starring Son Ye-jin) at the airport actually made me cry. But the next few moments was filled with silliness and laughter...

That's why I love this movie.

Preview... or you can access the official site.



*p.s. I've watched twice! The second time just a few days after I was back home. You can try to search in pps for 我的见鬼女友.

Seoul, Soul of my Asia

I'm back to reality.

Seoul is always my favorite place in the globe, because it means so much to me. It is the place where I got some certificates from the local uni (Yonsei, Hanyang & PaiChai) 9 years back, and also the place where our love bloomed in the autumn that year.

Hakuraa Huraa 180 

 I couldn't believe time passed by so quickly. It finally came to the end of our remarkable holiday. All the memories that flashed from the moment we boarded the plane and amazed by the astonishing view of the "heaven on earth". 真无法相信时间飞逝。终于到了我们悠闲假期的尾声。 从搭上飞机的那时刻,到亲眼目睹“人间天堂”的景象。一切一切尽在不言中。。

Our Honeymoon in Maldives 爱在阳光灿烂的天堂 。马尔代夫 - Part 9 第九章, It's a global village after all! 我们就在地球村!

Pieces of memories and friends that we made. I love Maldives!!
段段记忆和友谊。我爱马尔代夫!

Sometimes a picture says a thousand words, thus in these few final posts of mine, I choose to post more photos. But too bad our friends in China cannot log on to Facebook, even Blogger, so I could only e-mail to them.
有时候照片比文字述说得更贴切,所以这最后的几篇我选择用照片讲故事。可惜的事,在中国的哥儿们都上不到面子书,博客也进不到,所以只好e-猫给他们了。

Our Honeymoon in Maldives 爱在阳光灿烂的天堂 。马尔代夫 - Part 7 第七章, Bits after sunset at Chaaya Lagoon Hakuraa Huraa 黄昏后的查雅珊瑚礁

Sunset is perfect with liquor!
Especially when it's on the house. =)
I've lost count of how many glasses since yesterday...
有酒精陪伴的黄昏真棒!
特别是免费的。
已经忘了这是第几杯。。。从昨天算起。。

And I super love our water bungalow.
There's always not long enough time to dip in the crystal clear water.
还有我爱死了我们的水楼。
好像浸泡在晶莹剔透的海水里的时间怎么都不够。

Our Honeymoon in Maldives 爱在阳光灿烂的天堂 。马尔代夫 - Part 6 第六章, Chaaya Lagoon Hakuraa Huraa - Out to the sea! I love water! 出海咯!玩水咯!

Hakuraa Huraa 063

We are definitely not morning persons. Normally I missed watching sunrise wherever we go.
But by coincident, our room #108 is just the right spot for spectacular sunrise... (I rather see sunset...)
I was waken up by the sunlight shining all the way onto our bed! 囧
In fact, the sunrise should not be considered sunrise anymore... looked like already risen half an hour ago.
It was only 5am!!
我们不是观赏日出爱好者。。偏偏房间#108的阳台就是欣赏日出的好地方。。。(怎么不是日落呢。。。)
清晨就被耀眼的阳光晒醒了!囧
事实上,日出已过了。。。早已升空至少半个小时咯。
才5点而已!!

谢谢你们 爱我的每个人


痛 在眼中变成泪 在心中变成灰
没有什么能安慰 怕被时间变成累
被想象变成悲希望都被粉碎

不安有时会崩溃 有时会怨慰
好像怎么对待都不对

看的出你隐藏多少的疲惫
却还是坚持着爱不断加倍
让我感动也让我愧对

谢谢你们 爱我的每个人
在我的人生最像一场噩梦的旅程
陪我挣脱 勇敢地去醒来
当我的护卫 为我祷告心灵更强韧
谢谢你们 爱我的每个人
让我努力后可以谢谢自己很坦诚
会想不通 或绝望到躲开
但你们做的 总让我想坚强负责任
为了爱重生

心 摆脱夜的黑 往蓝天而飞
被阳光包围
只为了 你一句我笑得好美
我忍住了 太漫长的泪

看的出你隐藏多少的疲惫
却还是坚持着爱不断加倍
让我感动也让我愧对

谢谢你们 爱我的每个人
在我的人生最像一场噩梦的旅程
陪我挣脱 勇敢地去醒来
当我的护卫 为我祷告心灵更强韧
谢谢你们 爱我的每个人
让我努力后可以谢谢自己很坦诚
会想不通 或绝望到躲开
但你们做的 总让我想坚强负责任
为了爱重生

...谢谢你们...+...
