An Old Song...

I was going through my playlist when I stumble upon this particular song, Because I'm a Girl by Kiss. No, I’m not talking about Gene Simmons’s Kiss but a Korean girl band. It has been quite some time since I heard this song. I remembered it was heavily played in my car and also kat office but the thing that made this song so special is the music video. Though the group didn’t even last till the 2nd single, the MV will always be one of my all time favourite.

I wanted to story a bit about the MV but I think its better kalau you watch it yourself. Baru best sikit impact dia(for those yang tak pernah tengok the video). No harm pun. The song is sodap and MV pun best…. I got the Korean(click here) and English(and here) version…so tengok, jangan tak tengok.

Watching this MV makes me wonder….would we do the same thing for the one we love?

Of Needles and Guilty Pleasure

Getting stuck on a hard bed and being poked by needles two times a day is not what I want to repeat. A week dah cukup and I am still recovering from it. The worst experience ever…

Well for some yang didn’t know, I was admitted to the hospital due to dengue. It just amazed me what a tiny little flying insect can do. I was down and out. The worst was not being able to eat no matter how hungry I was. Its not like I don’t want to eat, just I can’t. Whatever yang I tried to masukkan in my mouth tasted so pahit I just can’t force it in. If it did pun, it will end up in the toilet bowl later. The missus was a bit irritated with me cos she said I was not trying hard enough to eat…I lost quite a bit of weight due to that. A fast and effective diet programmes but of course not recommended.

Honestly, everyone hates injections. I hate needles but when you are being warded, it is kinda hard to avoid being poke by one lah rite. So, twice a day a nice nurse in blue uniform will come in with a smile and her scary needles…I just turn the other way and hope it’s over ASAP. The worst is when they wake you up at 4am or 5am…..hmmmm...really not something you want at that time of day.

I’m just glad it’s over but I am still recovering. The doctor had given me an MC for a week but I am still trying to regain back the strength and energy I lost. I was expecting a fast recovery but I guess my body is responding slower now due to my….mature age now. At least I get to indulge myself with my new obsession…… Korean Dramas!!!

Yes…I am into K-dramas. Don’t ask me why….just my guilty pleasure I guess. My sister is the one who got me hooked when I was in back in Kuching and I can’t seem to get enough of it. I just enjoy watching it….and the missus is getting annoyed a bit because she said I’m too obsess with it. Hahahaha....I do have to admit I am bit maybe. Just one after another…

My all time favourite is Coffee Prince (or also known as The 1st Shop of the Coffee Prince). I watched it maybe 5 or 6 times and I know for a fact I can watch it a few more times. I love the acting and the intriguing story line. And the music is not bad too. For those yang nak starts with k-dramas, I highly recommend Coffee Prince….just watch it and you understand what I mean. Full House and My Name is Kim Sam-Soon should be in that list too.

And coincidentally, my favourite actress….Yoon Eun Hye, is the heroin in the drama. She only acted in three dramas (Goong or Princess Hours and The Vineyard Man is the other two) but she is so talented and a joy to watch. She has that “Drew Barrymore” cuteness about her. It has been awhile since she acted (Coffee Prince was her last acting job since 2007) and I just hope she will be out of her acting hiatus soon. Attached is one of my favourite song from the series....and some of the scenes

Well…now I just have to figure out how to get myself all pump up about work tomorrow. It has been 2 weeks….So I assume it is gonna be a struggle. Or should I just request an MC for another week…hmmmmm.
