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 firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.
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.
