Why I Love Watching Korean Dramas and Movies + an Inspiring Quote from one of the shows I’m currently watching

 Wow! that was a long title, hehehe 

‘Twas year 2004 when I first hooked to Korean dramas and movies. Believe it or not, I love them way more than the locally-produced ones.  Ooopps, sorry. 

Full House (starring Song He-Kyo and Rain) was the very first drama I’ve watched.  I still remember those days that my former officemate and I swapped CDs containing all the episodes of our favorites shows. Thanks to the fast-evolving technology, we now have lots of options on where to watch/stream our favorite TV shows. 

I’ve seen a hundred (or more) titles ranging from romantic comedy, romance, medical, legal,  thriller and all other interesting genres. That made me realized that, perhaps, I should blog about my reviews and Kdrama recommendations for you, guys. Hmmm, watch out for it, soon. 

Fast forward to 2020 to 2021, pandemic period, when most of us are stucked at home, bored and worried – especially here, in my side of the globe, where the coronavirus pandemic is far from over.  We need to refrain from going out unless it is an essential business like reporting for work, or buying basic goods. Watching movies, dramas and documentaries is one of our favorite hobbies at home. 

Korean dramas are very interesting to watch, isn’t it? It is because they have interesting plots – creative story lines, love story match ups, and relatable experiences by the lead stars. There are shows that I even watch over and over again. 

I am currently watching Hometown Cha Cha Cha. It’s a new series on Netflix with only 3 out of  16 episodes available. It is a light-hearted, romantic comedy. The lead stars Kim Seon-ho and Shi Min-a have an amazing chemistry, too. They are now trending  on social media as “dimple couple”.

That’s one of my favorite lines from the show.  

I am also waiting for the last two episodes of Hospital Playlist Season 2. 

Keep Up With Your Favorite Team

 There are times when you are away from home and you just want to make sure that you can catch the big game. Perhaps you are from out of town, or you just want to get out of the house for awhile. These are the times that your local pub are known for. You can enjoy a meal, have a few drinks, and watch the sport of your choice all at the same time. Here are some reasons why you will want to head over to the pub the next chance that you get.
Friendly Atmosphere
A pub, such as the sports bar Countryside IL, is known for its friendly atmosphere. This is a place where you can actually go alone and feel as if you have entered the family living room. You will be able to banter back and forth with the other guests, all in the cozy confines of the local pub.
Let Someone Else Clean Up
If you are looking forward to the big game, so are many of your friends and family members. Sure, you could watch it at home. You might even enjoy it. It is the aftermath that will cause you frustration. That is a lot of cleanup. When you hit the local sports bar to watch the game, they will take care of the cleanup for you. This allows you to enjoy the game, meal, and drinks knowing that when the time comes to leave, you just pay the bill and go.
Access to Out of Market Games
A sports bar usually has a package that enables it to gain access to out of market games. This is great news if the game you are looking to watch is taking place on the other side of the country. Just head over to the bar and you will be watching the game like you were next door.
These are just three of many reasons why your local pub is the best place to go the next time you want to watch a sporting contest. It is simply great fun. You will enjoy the atmosphere and being able to cheer along with all of the other patrons while you eat and drink.

Blog Backlogs

As I’ve mentioned earlier, I have so many blog backlogs due to my wonky internet connection these past few days. In order to catch up, here are some of important posts that I’ve missed:

My First UP Fair Experience
Without any plans of going to the fair, three of my classmates tagged me along in the fair last Tuesday. If I remember it right, the event was dubbed as “Sisfire7” and sponsored by UP Economics Society and UP Sigma Beta Sorority. Though we didn’t stayed until wee hours, it was quite an awesome experience.

Our Baguio City Family Getaway (February 5-7, 2010)

Just before the husband arrived from Oman, I have already arranged our 3-day vacation in the City of Pines. We stayed in a transient house there which was few minutes away from Burnham Park. We really enjoyed our vacation. It was our first out-of-town trip together (Papa, Thea and me). Yes, just the three of us. We have been    into lots of out-of-town trips with my in-laws and relatives. Thea and I went to my hometown, but never with Papa because he’s always working. The trip was indeed a perfect bonding time. It was one of my happiest moments with my beloved family.

Here are some of my photos:

Online Casino

I’m learning, continuously learning…Last night, our topic in Financial Analysis class was focus on initial public offering (IPO). We were assigned to research on IPO of local and some foreign companies. And guess what, I was the first one called to report my research on Splash Corporation’s IPO, without Powerpoint, just a brief overview of the topic. I think I did it fairly well.

My friend/classmate reported on a company that manages casinos in Macau. Online casino is becoming familiar.

The website gathers all information ranging from list of online casinos in the US, online and offline gaming, betting, etcetera. Quite interested she said she browse online casino news
