What is Hanbok?

The photo below was taken when we visited the National Folk Museum of Korea.  The photo below was the traditional dress of Korean women , Hanbok (South Korea) or Chosŏn-ot (North Korea). It is often characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines without pockets. Although the term literally means "Korean clothing", hanbok today often refers specifically to hanbok of Joseon Dynasty and is worn as semi-formal or formal wear during traditional festivals and celebrations. Modern hanbok does not exactly follow the actual style as worn in Joseon dynasty since it went through some major changes during the 20th century for practical reasons.

Hanbok for kids

Post will not be complete without me modeling it, so that's me below wearing Hanbok photo was taken when attend the celebration of Lotus Lantern Festival last year in Seoul.

Japanese Quails

Seeing these critters, what do you think are they? Chicken or quails? The photo below was taken in Mangyongdae House , North Korea. While everyone is busy talking and looking around I am busy running after these critters. 

They are quails but you can mistakenly tell they are chickens because of their long legs as I search online I think I can consider them as  Japanese Quail, a species of quail found in East Asia. They are a migratory species, breeding in Manchuria, southeastern Siberia, northern Japan, and the Korean Peninsula, and wintering in the south of Japan and southern China. They dwell in grasslands and cultivated fields. The plumage of the Japanese Quail is a speckled yellow-brown, with a creamy white strip above the eye. Adults are approximately 20 centimeters in length. The species is abundant across most of its range.

The Japanese quail is used mainly for table and egg production, and is a good dual purpose bird. and guess what Japanese quail eggs have orbited the Earth in several Soviet and Russian spacecraft, including the Bion 5 satellite and the Salyut 6 and Mir space stations. Lucky eggs, huh?

Breakfast in Bed and sweet cheat

I wake up around 12:30 in the afternoon today and immediately log-in to adgitize  before we go to gym and the site's reset.  I didn't even bother to fried Pookie bear's egg for his meal so he fried it alone because I just wake up eh, well he was not angry anyway and he actually prepared breakfast for me,  rice, mini pork cutlet with soy sauce and a cup of coffee, he even measured my rice because I told him I don't want to eat a lot of rice anymore.,

Actually we went to gym at 2:00 in the afternoon no matter how I tried to request to reschedule it at five  o'clock so I can still sleep and wake up at 2:00 o'clock.,

While in the gym I run to Missha with my gym clothes, haha. I just bought two shower cologne because they are on sale.  Even though we have to attend the gym Saturday is still a cheat day so here's what I got from Dunkin's donut, little donuts. Haha, how am I going to loss weight if I bought a lot of sweets, I have cookies, walnut pie and chips with me too., anyway when I weigh myself after eating this sweets I am 55.2 kilos, see effective. Lol!

Love it with coffee!

Just an update about me

What's new? Nothing aside from I had an allowance increased this week. Lol, Pookie bear probably noticed how busy I am in cooking, it is not that big but a little something is better than nothing. Plus we have a gym schedule during weekends that makes my online schedule cluttered, being  busy makes me feel lazy in blogging and find a new way to entertain myself by watching TV shows to relax my tired mind and body. I know I need to stop this if I want to earn money online and grab more opportunities on article writing  which I seldom have. Anyway I already done the first step today instead of watching more episodes I decided to watch the ending today, so if yesterday I just peep now I watch it totally so for sure I am done with it. 

I am sorry friends for not visiting you actively these past few days I am still working on my new schedule, teheee.

Guess what I found today when I weigh myself? Waaahhh, I gained over 2 kilos, it is depressing and I want to be serious going to gym starting this weekend if I want to wear my clothes without ripping them. Huhuhu

I found out Rocco Nacino has a good voice, he can be a singer if given a chance, I don't else what's going to happened but I love his chemistry to Kris Bernal as Jenna this TV show will end tomorrow if I am not mistaken.

What's happening with imageshack?

Hi guys how's your day, as I visited my blog today I panicked when I can't see my header and banner's for my other sites. All I have seen is a yellow frog in an ice cubes, so I immediately contact Sis Grace if she has a copy of my header as I am looking through my  files. I almost lost my hope when I can't find anything but I remember to sign-in in imageshack if I have copy of it there because as far as I remember I uploaded it when I am log-in and thanks God I have a copy. 

After log-in I refreshed my blog and find all my image hosted by imageshack are working, so I log-out and refresh it again and it is not working again. So I figure out if I can't view my images when I am log-out how much more my visitors who are not member of imageshack. So immediately I signed up with photobucket and transfer all my images hosted by imageshack.

Anyway if you don't know ImageShack is like photobucket which offers image hosting, free photo sharing and video sharing but I don't know what's happening with the site, why you need to log-in just to view the images you uploaded.

Birthday and Beauty Giveaway : My new found passion

I am type of person who is impulsive in doing things, there are times I am full energy to start things and later I am going to find out I can't finish them just by losing interest on continuing it.  Anyway passion is powerful emotion, such as love, joy, hatred, or anger. What is my passion?  What are the things I love to do and makes me busy everyday or makes me disturbed and incomplete if I did not do it immediately? 

To start with blogging became my passion since I started doing it, earning from it and meeting some friends online. There's no single day that I don't log-in in my blog since I started  it and somehow became active again well except for the time that we are on vacation. My blog is already part of me, my everyday life and my sweetest friend that would never make me down. Imagine my life without me blogging, it would be dull isn't it?  I have no job to be busy with aside from doing house hold chores and cooking for my husband I have nothing else to do that makes my husband  to bring me to the gym with him before I became a hermit. I don't get out of our apartment unless to shop or to eat outside during special occasions.  So being online and blogging is my new found passion together with photography because a blog will not be complete without a picture as Ate Rose says.

This is my official entry to  Birthday and Beauty Giveaway hosted by Ate Melandria  of Fashion and Passion Online.

This Birthday and Beauty Giveaway would not be possible without the help of these wonderful sponsors.

It's a sweet weekend

With my cake
Nothing to blog tonight. I sleep around three o'clock last night this morning and then woke up around 12:30 in the afternoon even I don't like it because Pookie bear woke me up. Anyway I told him to wake me up at 12:30 when he asked me what time he should wake up so he did but I still want to sleep and I am begging him to let me sleep and reschedule the gym time around 5:00 in the afternoon  but he is heartless to turn up the volume of his movie (huhuhu) and  his reason he is cooking his eggs because I am so stubborn to do it as I still want to sleep trying to escaped going to gym at 2:00 in the afternoon. Anyway he won because his computers is just right on my ears so no choice but to move out of the bed and start my day. I ate my breakfast and finished the things I was not able to finish last night on my online stuff. 

We've went to gym before 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon, then  returned home I cleaned inside our apartment and I am back again to my online life. When I feel so hungry as I am not eating lunch yet I cooked this foods . After cooking we've went to Kim's Club Mart and he bought me treats, I got a cake, small pie, chips and some chocolates. Then I cooked again it was his sausages for his sandwich.

We applied visa extension at Suwon Immigration

I just sleep five hours today because we had to wake up at seven o'clock in the morning so we can go to immigration. I didn't even eat my breakfast, when we went out there's ice everywhere it seems it snowed early in the morning. We had the eight o'clock bus to Suwon immigration, it took us one hour and few minutes to reach Suwon then we took a taxi to the immigration and I filled-up an application form because Pookie bear has a complete papers already prepared by his director. We've waited for our number to be called and done, after we submit the application form, passport , ARC , other papers of Pookie bear and  buying a revolutionary tax we're done. We immediately got our passport and ARC after the officer verified it and wrote date at the back of our ARC. It's not like when we extend last year where we also have a change of address that we waited for ten days to get the passport. Anyway the good news is we don't need to get re-entry permit, what I mean apply for a multiple-entry visa because as of November 15, 2010, no re-entry permit is required to all registered foreigners when they re-enter Korea within one year of their departure date and that means we saved money for revolutionary tax.

Of course before leaving the immigration is picture time, Pookie bear scolded me for it lol. He said photo shoot is not allowed in a government office but I insist so before I know it "click!" so my photo is retarded looking because I am fixing my scarf. I can't asked for take two because the photographer already walked away, he said we need to hurry because he still got a  class to teach at one' clock in the afternoon.
We took taxi to Suwon bus station and got eleven o'clock bus, we are almost lost looking for the right bus because we are both in a hurry three minutes and the bus well left eh., we arrived here in our place after one hour and we need to walk home, I bought a kimchi and a bimbap rolls so Pookie bear went home alone as well as me.

Are you good in time management?

Life always seems so busy for me, it looks like I don't know how to manage my time. I've used my afternoon watching a Tagalog movie, Ang Tanging Ina mo, Last na to top billed by Ai Ai delas Alas. It's a clear video and I could say I have enjoyed watching it. 

We've went to gym today because we didn't yesterday so right now I just done two loads of laundry. We are going to sleep early tonight because we're going to immigration tomorrow to apply for our visa extension. We have to get up early and go to bus station  to got the first trip if possible, it will be a long travel don't how far is it.

So I am cramming right now, lol as if I have an exam.  I am cramming to my online task, bloghopping, adgitizing, blogging, clicking and social networking.  Are you  good in time management?

Am I busy or just feeling busy?

I feel so busy today even we don't have a gym schedule, Pookie bear rescheduled it he went to the gym last Sunday thirty minutes (30) after I wake up so I didn't go with him and he is pushing me to go today but I didn't go. Back to being busy I don't know if I just feel that I am busy or I am really busy. 

Today when Pookie bear went to school we found out that  the constant movement upwards is our neighbor packing their things because when he opened the door there's a track full of house things, they even put the bike on our door so when Pookie bear opened the door, the bike slammed on the floor. The Korean guy who's busy arranging things in the truck says "Whoahh aahh". 

I went back to sleep and sleep for more one hour when I heard someone press the intercom in our apartment, I didn't open the door. I already have a phobia opening the door because every time I opened it bible tampers., so I went back to sleep and as expected I had weird dreams again, I always dreaming of climbing to something e.g rocks and I always cannot make it to the top and when I wake up I am very tired.

Aside from being busy in house hold chores I am also busy tweaking my other blog, I decided to make it  as Foodie blog. So if you have time please visit Herz Corner.

Valentine's Gift from Student "No Poison"

Happy Hearts Day guys, how's your day? Today as Pookie bear arrived home as I removed his lunch box inside his bag I found some chocolates inside so I picked them all and said "Wow" they are from his students. Pookie bear told me how sure I am it is for me, maybe he would like to eat them. So I just put them in the bed and he then said he won't eat so I can have them. When I asked him why it is only few, Pookie bear called me "greedy". Lol!

This little box caught my attention, I even teased Pookie bear that Pooh is kicking the Canadian flag (in short him).
When I opened it I found three mini bars of Hershey's chocolate, and oh there is small note which is perfectly rolled. Let's open it...(handed to Pookie bear)
Surprised...NO POISION! Ha-ha that's what  written in a cute note, he laughed hard upon reading it. So I asked who gave it to him. He said it is one of his girl student who always giving her candies but he don't accept it and always kidding the girl he don't like it because she might put a poison on it. So the girl keep telling no poison and the class will laugh with the joke. Isn't it cute Pookie bear asked me to keep it...

My Valentine Loot

Happy Valentines Day everyone as you know we did our Valentine dinner in advance. So when we get home Pookie bear want something sour, so we ended in the new open GS Mart which is 100 meters away from us.

Below are my  loot this Valentines Day, DARS white and chocolate milk, Pally chocolate milk, snickers chocolate, Ferrero Rocher, grapes jellies, corn chips, strawberry ice cream, winter scarf and of course the big bar/bars of Crunky chocolate.

Anyway below is my gift to him we are like kids when giving gifts, this is just a secondary gift because if you have read my old post here I have told him my gift for Valentines Day is already included on the said things. He-he
Kisses for my sweets...

This Love stick are cute, they are heart shaped chocolates. The box has a message outside that goes like this "At the moment you feel my true spirit, You will be my prince forever."

Valentines Dinner

Hi guys been busy lately, we had dinner date tonight to celebrate Valentines day in advance because 14th will be on Monday and Pookie bear has to work and he is also on diet during weekdays. So we headed to grill house at the second floor of Kim's Club Mart it is buffet grill house, so as we open the door we find out it is a restaurant where you are going to sit in the floor and it is quite full so we retreated because Pookie bear don't like the idea of sitting in the floor. So we just headed inside the Kim's Club Mart and look for something we are gonna like I ended buying something.

Since the plan didn't work out Pookie bear asked me where I want to eat, to make it short we ended to eat in  Chai Wok a Chinese restaurant. Look at the plate below isn't it a heart? Just on time for Valentines day huh?

Slice Pork with Sauteed Pimentos
Stir-fried rice with chicken
After eating dinner we went to Lotte Super looking for dental floss we've been looking for it since last week but we cannot find in the nearby stores. After it we headed to the supermarket we usually shop, and this is what I got with other house supplies...

A bar or bars of chocolates?

When we passed along Barunson a gift shop with a lot of big teddy bears Pookie bear asked me if I want one when I pointed the store to him, I say no. I am just being practical that we cannot carry a lot of stuffs whenever we planned to left Korea in the future.

Pookie bear says just think that our Valentines dinner is our buffet dinner in Seoul.

Prince J and the dragon named Ryanne

Hi guys because love is on the air I decided to blog all about love until Valentines Day, hope you enjoy our story it is not yet finished though. Don't know if we are going to finish it, Pookie bear got the idea of composing a story when he know I love to write love story, so he started it and the blue paragraphs was written by me, we wrote this when we are not yet married I don't know what happened why I was not able to write the next paragraph so I wrote the continuation tonight. As far as I remember both of us became so busy working on our wedding detail especially me making our own invitations, working for the reception and etc.,

It was a beautiful, sunny morning. There was a slight breeze and the scent of flowers filled the air. As Ryanne ( ) slept blissfully, nothing but the sweet song of birds could be heard in the meadow adjacent to her house. At 9:00 the alarm went off and it was time for Ryanne to start her day. She tried to shake off that feeling of fatigue that we all have in the morning. For eventhough she looked like she slept blissfully, she was tormented by a recurring dream, some would even say a nightmare, of her being turned into a dragon by the evil and dastardly Prince J.  Yes, he just had one letter in his name, but he was so evil, that's all he needed. Anymore, and he would have been super-evil. Anyway, back to our story. Ryanne got out of bed and walked to the window. What a beautiful morning she thought.
At Fort Santiago

She sighs after reminiscing something on the past. She never thought things will be like this. How she hated to be alone, to face all the blank walls on her room. How many times she did ask her self, why she feel so selfless? After Prince J, turned her to a dragon something magical occurs, she is not the Ryanne she always knows. She is not like this before, she never feels selfless before, she can return home without trouble but it was yesterday. She had her deep sigh again. A strange feeling is torturing her If there’s only one who can understand her thoughts, her mere dreams and nightmares.

How many times she got her bad dreams, running nowhere in the middle of the long cold night, looking for the pair of eyes she seen somewhere in her life journey. If she could only see again that pair of eyes who makes her to feel selfless but Prince J really annoyed her, his evil deeds makes her to shiver from fear. She wants to fight back…but she can’t.  She is a prisoner of her own feelings…   
She painfully moves out from the window. This is another day of humiliations... How she wishes Prince J make her a dragon forever….

At Bahay Tsinoy
But this was not to be her fate....her destiny was down a different path. She just didn't realize it yet. Ryanne prepared for the day ahead of her, always thinking, always wondering. Would she be alone forever, never knowing what it was like to be loved, never knowing the sweet taste of a loved one's kiss, never gazing into someone's eyes and being lost in that gaze for what seemed like a lifetime......but she shook off these feelings and went about her tasks.

After Ryanne returned home from a long day of labouring, she sat down to a quiet and peaceful meal with her family. Her father looked at her with happiness, while her mother gazed upon her knowing that she had raised a beautiful, sweet, kind, loving, caring, intelligent and funny daughter. But little did they know how Ryanne was tormented by feelings of loneliness and constant dreams of being turned into a dragon by the evil Prince J. Once dinner was over and Ryanne helped her mother clear the table, she retired to her bedroom, hoping and praying that her nightmares involving Prince J would not give her another sleepless night. As she lay her head on the pillow and sleep closed in on her, her mind filled with that horrible dream. She struggled to wake up, to escape from her nightmare, but it was not to be. She was trapped, and she didn't know how to get out.

At last she's awake, she thought she won't wake up anymore. As she returned to reality a decision was made, she will hug her delusions and mere dreams. She will not going to regret to be a dragon for ever just to be with Prince J. He loves him so much no matter how evil he is, she sneak outside the house with a heart full of love. She doesn't know the way to his kingdom but her heart will lead the way...

When love sailed

As I am looking for a travel photo of mine in my Friendster account I have stumbled on this scanned document, this is the longest poem I have written when I am still in college, I submitted this in a literary contest in our school paper and it won as first place or "Unang Karangalang Banggit" as what it is written after the poem.  Never received a prize from this contest but since then I became a contributor of our school paper I've never tried to join or take an exam to be part of the school paper because every time new staff is needed either I am nervous to take an exam, we have a class or we have no class and I am at home. You know the typical life of a family saving for another day, so no class, no allowance and no fare to town. 

Anyway because it is almost Valentines day I am sharing this poem, my life, my crush,  my infatuation and rejection. I thought I have encoded it long time ago but I can't find a soft copy of it.

Kimchi and Rice

Hi folks how's life going? I feel like neurotic here as Pookie bear says I cannot stop my hand from scratching my head, he is already planning to tie my two hands so I cannot reach my head. Lol, I don't know when I feel bored and nothing to do I make myself busy. 

Anyway let's don't talk gross about flakes and etc., our apartment today is stinking, stink likes pork. I have fried this ham look a like pork. This is my meal today, so I am not going to wonder why there's one big pimple in my forehead I have been eating oily foods these past few days.

Anyway here's rice and kimchi to complete the meal, it looks like Pookie bear and I is really playing "bahay-bahayan" our plates, glass and bowl are plastics except for fork and spoon. Hehe

Health Benefits of a Squash

I have been busy yesterday tweaking the template of my travel blog, and later afternoon yesterday I have found out I don't have enough time to do all my task online, Pookie bear class schedule changed for one week so we went to the gym a little late and  we came home from gym almost eight in the evening. I thought I will still have enough time to do all my task online but I am wrong.

Anyway as what I have said on my last post, I am having problem with my eyes that cause headache so I have think of eating squash. Lol, I just saute it with meat.

Do you know that squash has two main categories of squash are winter squash and summer squash,  winter squash is a low-calorie, good source of complex vegetable carbohydrates and dietary fiber
Squash is an excellent source of vitamin A, a great source of vitamin C potassium, dietary fiber and manganese, and a good source of folate, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin B1 (thiamin), copper, tryptophan, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B3 (niacin) and vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid).

It is also a source of niacin, iron and beta carotene. Usually, the darker the skin is, the higher the beta carotene content.

First we mix the molding powder then pour it into a small container/bag then the hand or foot is inserted into the mold then held in place for about 30seconds. The Mold will then turn into a rubber like substance then the hand/foot will be removed.


We then mix a powdered stone (Not Plaster of Paris as its very chalky and will not last a long time) then we pour it into the mold and wait a few hours until the stone hardens.


After the Stone has hardened we remove the cast from the mold then leave it dry for another few hours. Then once fully dried we use a high quality acrylic paint then use a gloss to seal in the paint. Then once the painting has fully dried we frame it and its ready to go to the customer.

Ramada Seoul: Garden Buffet "Ciel Garden"

As what I have said on my previous blog we had a dinner in a buffet restaurant in Seoul last Friday evening. Garden Buffet ‘Ciel Garden’  is on third floor of Ramada Seoul  located in Samsung-dong, Kangnam-ku, Seoul. The restaurant opens at six o'clock in the evening we are thirty minutes early so we waited together with other locals, we are the first one who went inside as we are the first one who came.
Anyway here's my first plate shrimps, sushi and sashimi. Yum!

Second plate, smoked salmons, bun with different cheese, shrimps and different type of salads
Third plate, shrimps, sashimi, steaks, meat, chicken and a lot of sea foods.
Fourth plate desserts, blueberry cheese cake, fruit tarts, chocolate cakes and etc.,
Finally the last one, ice cream yoghurt, strawberry and the other flavor I don't know. Lol
Picture before going home
They also have crabs and a lot more menus but I cannot eat them anymore my stomach is very very full. No more place for another plate, when we got home it feels so hard to breath having a big stomach. I did not even ate all food in my third plate, you will see it small but there's a lot of food below the shrimps. I did not finish my steak so Pookie did it for me.

Take out of Baskin Robbins at the bus terminal, Pookie bear was not able to eat ice cream because we are running out of time. We spend two hours inside the restaurant with non-stop eating, they are having a 20% discount.
