It's officially summer! I can't even stand the heat in the Philippines! That's why it's a relief to to take a dip in the water to beat this unbearable heat. I'm just lucky I live in a province where the famous Enchanted River is found. But believe me, it was my first time to check out the place. :) Now here's a recap on how I started my summer break together with my family and closest friends. Indeed, life is meant for good friends and great adventures!
These are my friends from Davao City. Everyone, meet Go-eun and Tristan. It's also their first time here in Surigao del Sur. And I wouldn't be able to get into this very enchanting place if it wasn't for them. Hahaha!
Fishes come out at 12 noon! They're very adorable especially when you see them up close.
Hola! The little girl is back on track. So if you're asking me, "what's up?" Now this is what I've been up to –– watching Korean drama series. To be honest, it's not my type listening to KPop and watching KDrama or movies until one time, I watched this afternoon show, Fated to Love You which was dubbed in Filipino. Surprisingly, I ended up wanting for more episodes which led me to some websites allowing me to watch Korean series for free. I think it was around mid of January when I got so hooked up in it.This post shows my completed drama series as well as the films I'm currently watching and still about to watch. I encourage you also to take a look at each of them especially if you have nothing to do this summer. Swear, Korea makes the best rom-com films!
IT'S OKAY, IT'S LOVE –– Jae-Yeol (Jo In-Sung) is a mystery writer and radio DJ. He suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. On the other hand, Hae-Soo (Kong Hyo-Jin) is going through her first year fellowship in psychiatry at a University Hospital. She has a negative attitude towards love and relationships in her personal life. Hae-Soo does sweat whenever she's kissed and is afraid of sex. Once Jae-yeol and Hae-soo meet, her life goes through big changes. They attempt to heal each other's emotional wounds, but their relationship takes a blow when they find out that Jae-yeol's mental health issues are more serious than they suspected.
What I loved about this series: • Jo In-Sung's handsome face •The story is realistic.•So much feels!
BIRTH OF A BEAUTY –– Sa Geum-Ran is an overweight woman. She spends her life taking care of her in-laws and supporting her husband Lee Gang-Joon in his studies abroad. She has been betrayed by them where it leads her to make a revenge. When she meets Han Tae-Hee, an heir of a large company who is suffering from a broken heart syndrome due to a psychological shock, an unattractive and overweight Sa Geum-Ran is changed to beautiful Sara. This is also because Han Tae-Hee also wants a revenge on a woman he loves who happens to be the new lover of Sa Geum-Ran's husband. In the process, Han Tae-Hee falls in love with Sara.
My favorite scene in this series was when Sara and Tae-Hee always have their back for each other. And it really makes me kilig whenever Tae-Hee goes home with excitement to see Sara who is beautiful inside and out.
FATED TO LOVE YOU –– So this is the main reason why I like watching Korean television series now. This story is about Lee Gun who is an eccentric and kind-hearted heir and a meek and the principled "post-it" girl, Kim Mi-Young decide to marry after their unintended one-night stand results in an unexpected pregnancy. They have a love-hate relationship but later on Lee Gun finds himself falling in love with Mi-Young. Sorry to spoil this one but she experiences miscarriage in the story. Their breakup will definitely sadden your heart. But in the end, they still have their happy ending.
EMERGENCY COUPLE –– I decided to watch this one because of Choi Jin Hyuk who was also in Fated To Love You and The Heirs. Here, Oh Chang-Min (Jin-Hyuk) marries a dietitian, Oh Jin-hee (Song Ji-Hyo) despite his family's strong opposition. Chang-Min gives up his dream of becoming a doctor. Instead, he becomes miserable on his job as a pharmaceutical salesman. Later on, their relationship is slowly fading. They begin to say hurtful words and even throw stuffs to each other until eventually they get a divorce. Six years later, they meet as interns at the same hospital, where they'll have to work in the emergency room together for three months.
It's a nice story especially when you are in med school. You will really be able to relate and learn something important. It even influenced me to become a doctor. When I took an entrance exam in Ateneo, my chosen course was really BS-Nursing. It was supposed to be my preparatory course. But things changed when someone told me to go into business. Arrggh!!!
ROSY LOVERS –– This television series is consist of more than fifty episodes. I am almost finished with the whole drama. Currently, I am still watching out for the remaining scenes to be translated in English. The story tells more about family relationship. But mainly it revolves around the relationship between Park Cha Dol and the immature girl, Jang-Mi. Jang-Mi grew up without experiencing any hardship in life. But when Jang-mi gets pregnant, she and Cha-dol are forced to live without depending from their family, and must begin raising a child while both are still in college. In the process, they slowly gain maturity. You should watch it, too, and witness how they both fight for their love.
SENSORY COUPLE –– This one is a newly released series. The plot goes this way: Choi Eun-Seol's parents were killed in a Bar code murder case but she miraculously survived. Since then, she has lost her memory. But her left eye has changed its color which has given her the ability to see smells. On the other hand, Choi Moo-Gak is a man who lost his younger sister also in the Bar Code murder case. Since then he has lost his senses. He can no longer feel physical pain. On the first episode, they meet as Choi Moo-Gak and Oh Cho-Rim after Eun-Seol lost her memory. Moo-Gak works in the police department and is determined to catch criminals due to the loss of her sister. When he was chasing a robber, he bumped into Oh Cho-Rim who helped him look for the criminal in a crowd by the use of her ability of seeing smells. Now I am really curious about the two Choi Eun-Seol and the intentions behind the Bar Code murder case.
DR. MO CLINIC –– So glad to see the "Pambansang Krung-Krung", Sandara Park takes her first lead in a television series. Dr. Mo Clinic is a story about a man and a woman who were both left broken-hearted by their respective lovers without even a single goodbye. In the drama, Dara will be acting as a mascot. I watch this one while I wait for the other episodes of Rosy Lovers and Sensory Couple.
LOVE FORECAST –– Yes, we've seen him in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. Lee Seung-gi will portray a funny character again. This time in a 2015 romantic comedy movie, Love Forecast together with Moon Chae-won. When Joon-Soo (Lee Seung-gi) falls in love he tries to give everything to the girl. But he is the one who always gets dumped. Hyun-Woo (Moon Chae-won) works as a weather reporter. Unlike her beautiful appearance, she acts excessively and talks in a tough manner. A romance blooms between these two people.
There's this brand Godiva that I've been longing to try on ever since I heard about this from a friend and just last year, I finally got to try some of their products. What's good about Godiva is that it's all natural and is absolutely safe to use. Also, it will not just help cleansing your face and other body parts. It makes your skin radiant, too. From their deodorant, soap, body lotion, facial wash, toner, and cream, there's the power of licorice which is effective in whitening. So far, I love how Godiva helps make my face pimple-free and for maintaining and balancing my natural morena skin tone. Indeed, Godiva is the key to skin discolorations and unevenness.
