A song for people going through difficult times.

Your tears will turn into smiles and laughter in time to come. And there will be people fighting for the same dreams and solving problems with you. Fighting !

삶이란 시련과 같은 말이야

고개좀 들고 어깨펴 짜샤~

형도 그랬단다

죽고싶었지만 견뎌 보니 괜찮더라

맘껏 울어라 억지로 버텨라

내일은 내일의 해가 뜰테니

바람이 널 흔들고

소나기 널 적셔도

살아야 갚지 않겠니

더 울어라 젊은 인생아 져도 괜찮아..

넘어지면 어때

살다보면 살아가다보면 웃고 떠들며 이날을 넌 추억할테니

세상에 혼자라 느낄테지

그마음 형도 다 알아 짜샤~

사랑을 믿었고 사람을 잃어버린자

어찌 너 뿐이랴

맘껏 울어라 억지로 버텨라

내일은 내일의 해가 뜰테니

더 울어라 젊은 인생아

져도 괜찮아 넘어지면 어때

살다보면 살아가다보면 웃고 떠들며 이날을 넌 추억할테니

세상이 널 뒤통수 쳐도 소주 한잔에 타서 털어버려

부딪치고 실컷 깨지면서

살면 그게 인생다야

넌 멋진놈이야

I don’t know if any of you felt the same way….haha but i stopped listening to songs from kpop groups after i hit the big 30 ???

I just screened through my playlist and most of them are OSTs.

Here are some of my most recently played ones :

 

 

 

 

Oh speaking of the Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo drama’s OST , im so in love with this drama. I watched 16 episodes within 2 days during CNY holidays. This drama is so addictive. Made you want to watch one episode to another without stopping. Mr Shin NEVER join me in a drama marathon before but this time , he watched with me till 5am and we woke up at 10am again to continue leh !

I stopped watching Legend of the Blue Sea after episode 14 . The storyline got very draggy and dull after ep 10. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo was sooo much better and more interesting and i don’t understand why their rating was so low. If this drama’s timing did not clash with Legend of the Blue Sea, i bet this drama will be a huge hit. Plus Nam Joo Hyuk is soooo shuai. I thought he was 27/28 but didnt know he is only 23 this year ?

 

 

This is not an OST but one of the tracks from Yoon Mi Rae.

 

 

This was one of the shortlisted songs for my wedding video actually. OST was from one of the REPLY drama series.

I change my play list once a while if not keep listening to same song will sian.

Spring is coming soon and many people are heading to Korea for holidays.

If you are going to Busan , you can visit this URL to check out the places to go and how to get to those place !

http://tour.busan.go.kr/index.busan

I am also drafting a list of places to visit in Busan..may take sometime to do so because i am still digging out my old pictures to include in that post 🙂 Hopefully i can finish it before end of Feb for those who are going over in March/April for the cherry blossoms ! I promise k !!!

This is the first time Oppa and i spent CNY together as a married couple. First day of CNY was a busy day..and we gave out Ang Bao too !

And on the 4th day of CNY , we went back to work !
What a coincidence , my colleague and i wore the same top bought from Temt to office ! We even wore similar looking black pencil skirts. We both did our lashes at Lush Lab @ Bali Lane too !

What is CNY without steamboat ?
So on the 8th day of CNY , my bro + sil , my hubs and i went to my parents’ place for dinner.

Sooo many dishes…23 dishes ! Cannot finish and we dabao some soup and dishes back home to cook for next day’s lunch lol.

And i also did one at my place with Kim Yong Jae oppa (hairstylist from Korean salon Dusol Beauty @ Cityhall ) and his fiancee Pamela who is a Singaporean and part of the #KBS (Korean Boyfriend and Spouse) chatgroup !

As i grow older , i cannot really feel the CNY mood. It is just another public holiday to me where i can rest , watch dramas , gather with family and friends. And also swiping my Taobao at night.

Saw these pretty dresses going on SALE !!!!!! Looks nice..but don’t know where to wear to lah..buy for next year CNY or don’t buy and save up ? Very cheap leh !

Getting these 2 for my Japan trip and going to keep them in Korea instead. I am planning to get some coats and tops to keep in Korea so that i do not need to pack alot of things whenever i go over. Now when i buy a jacket , i will get 2…1 to keep in KR and 1 to keep in SG so that i can use it when i travel other countries. Because whenever i go back to Busan , my MIL will pack alot of food and other things for us to bring back to SG and our luggage will be really heavy and overweight. So..im really buying some to keep in Korea..then next time when i go over , i do not need to pack and bring too many heavy coats.

This wool coat is only RMB 95 (SGD 20)

The dress and top combi very nice ! Very cheap..only RMB79 (SGD 16)

No more swiping liao..deleting the app off my phone and waiting for the mid year sale only !

Putting my night mask and saying GOOD NIGHT !

 

#KDrama

Before i start blogging , here is a video you should watch.

New Korean drama coming up on 15th August !
Moonlight Drawn By the Clouds featuring Park Bo Gum.

Here is a teaser by KBS.

 

Im waiting for the drama loh. Debuting on 15th August which means that it will be online by 16th August in SG.

Park Bo Gum is soooo cute lah !  Maybe he will be the next Song Joong Ki !

I got a new buy to share in #Kbeauty

Pony Effect’s Everlasting Cushion.

Pony is a famous make up artist in Korea. The Korean version of Michelle Phan i will say. She is CL’s make up artist. You can follow her on instagram. I just bought her lipstick and primers as well. Will review once i used it.

I bought this from Gmarket to try. If it is good , i will ask my brother-in-law to buy 2-3 of it from the beauty shop opposite his house and bring them to SG for me. Hehe. I bought Pony’s eyeshadow palette from the beauty shop back in May and i really like the shades.

Verdict : MUST BUY !

Packaging is very posh looking and not that bulky.

Rose gold rims.

Cost about KRW 39,000 and it comes with a refill pack.

Coverage : 8/10

Dewiness : 8/10

Moisturizing effect : 9/10

Lasting : 8/10

One thing i don’t really like about it is that it can make my face looks oily. So if you have oily skin , you may want to top up with a loose powder.

I bought the colour Ivory Beige. It makes my skin looks abit fairer So if you are not comfortable with having a “whitish look” , you can try Rosy Ivory which comes with a slight pink tinge.

Yes, Buy and Try !  Worth it !

It comes in 5 shades.

It is similar to that of HERA. Im just attracted to its packaging and the packaging is less bulky so it wont make my make up pouch so bulgy.

Well Kbeauty and Kdrama aside for now , i have created a chat group for SG-KOR couples. All of us have Korean husbands/fiance. So if you are keen to join this group , drop me an email at peonykissblog@gmail.com .  We do meet ups and planning to do double dates. I created this group so that all of us can learn and pick up tips from each other. Some of us were already married with kids , some getting married and some planning to. Those getting married can get tips from those who were already married on the applications and steps etc. It is good to have some support back home in SG and in Korea. So incase anyone moves to Korea or need help or company there when we all go back during festive seasons like Lunar New Year and Thanksgiving day.

Yup infact , all of us go back to Korea for few days to few weeks for the Lunar New Year and Thanksgiving day. So we can meet up for coffee or hangout. Good to have friends and support when we are all in foreign land.
So yup , if you want to join us , do drop me an email. Currently i only add in those who are in serious relationships ( with marriage in plans at least).

Hehe..i named the group #KBS which stands for Korean Boyfriends and Spouse . Haha nice one ?

But if you have a Korean wife/fiancee and keen to join this group , we also don’t mind lah..but you better get your wife’s or fiancee approval first. Because it is all girls in the group at the moment.

OMG 2.5 more months to my wedding in Korea and 1.5 more months to my ROM in SG.

Just last week , there was a day when my mobile phone was vibrating like crazy. Yes it is always on vibration mode now because im so busy with work these days. And alot of friends and even my clients sent me this article published on straits time on 11th July.

http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/korean-mother-in-laws-mantra-please-cook-for-my-son

The article makes everything sounds like hell but it was not that case for me. My MIL gave me alot of freedom. We have a group chat but she didnt always call or bug me with smses. I guess probably she is occupied with her new Korean BBQ business in Busan and she knows im quite automatic. Because when i cook , i will send photos over. I do clean my house , wash up and do laundry etc on my own daily. So she didn’t need to check on me because she trust that i do that on my own and im cleaner than her son hehehe. I would say that my MIL doesn’t have that mantra but more of that my fiance has that mantra that i have to cook for him leh. Yup , he expects me to cook , know how to do housework etc. I think he is more traditional lol.

Im planning to cook spicy pork ribs stew and bean paste soup or soon dubu soup this weekend.

My friends asked me how come i can come up with different dishes everyday and never run out of idea and where did i learn all these recipes that are so delicious and easy to cook ?

Well , i picked up from my Mother-in-law , my mum and also through a programme by a famous Korean chef Baek Jong won. He owns Bornga Korean Restaurant in SG. There is an outlet in Vivo and Buona Vista. I prefer the one at Buona Vista. Yup you can try the Korean food there. It is good !

I watch his program every week when  i go to work or when im on the way to appointment. Gives me idea what to cook. I just learnt how to cook aglio oglio. It is so easy and it became our version of “instant food” because it is soo easy to cook. I mixed it with Bulgogi lol..Korean-western style ? I cooked with tiger prawns just last week (western style).

Here is where i got the recipe for Bean Paste Soup Stew (Duenjang Jiggae). The one all of you asked me to blog about.

Super easy to cook and very delicious. I made it within 15 minutes.  If you cannot find radish , you can replace it with zucchini which i always use. My MIL version is slightly different. She don’t use instant soya bean paste and chilli pepper paste. She used home made soya bean paste made by my grandmother-in-law. The one you always see in drama where they put in a huge clay pot and ferment it. So it tastes really original and savory.

 

Korean Steam Egg

Bet that this is everybody’s favourite.

Enjoy his videos !
More to share this weekend with my new PONY EFFECT primers and pore brush.
