Korean Drama : On The Way to the Airport

Hello, everyone! Seems like I'm watching Korean more than Malay dramas. Haha. But, this drama is quite special since part of it was shot in Malaysia and this drama also has been sponsored by Air Asia itself. I was quite excited to know people perspective about Malaysia so that's the reason why I watched it. On the drama, they said that views at Putrajaya were similar to Han River at South Korea. As for now, I already watched until episode three. So far so good. I quite like the storyline and chemistry between the lead actor and actress. It is different from the other Korean dramas that I had watched.

Synopsis


"On the Way to the Airport" is the story of a married woman named Choi Soo-A (Kim Ha-Neul) and a married man named Seo Do-Woo (Lee Sang-Yoon). The meeting of them makes their life change quickly.

Choi Soo-A works as a flight attendant for an airline and has been working there for 12 years. Her husband is a pilot and they have a 12-years-old daughter. Beside, Seo Do-Woo works as a part-time instructor in architecture. He has a bright and warm heart. He is married and they have a daughter, but a shocking incident occurs.

Choi Soo-A thinks she is content with her life, but then she meets Seo Do-Woo. Her life changes. Seo Do-Woo, due to the incident, he becomes confused and Choi Soo-A comes into his life. They complement each other.

If you're interested in watching this drama, go here.


My Thoughts

  1. I don't know why Do-Woo's wife hates their daughter so much. But the thing that I knew from watching the drama is Annie is a stepdaughter to Do-Woo. Maybe because she having affairs and got pregnant? I don't know. We will know why from the next episodes, I guess.
  2. Not just that, Choi Soo-A's husband also being so assertive to his daughter. He sent her daughter to other countries and seems not care about her at all.
  3. This is my first time watching a drama which a married person fall in love with another married person. It is also rare to watch a drama or movie about aviation industries (In Malaysia we only have Awan Dania, if I'm not mistaken). It's unique, I can say?
  4. So far, on the first and second episode shot in Malaysia like Putrajaya, Istana Budaya, and few more places. And few throwback time at other episodes.

Road to Convo!



Alhamdullilah after waiting for a long time, last week I got a letter from my college. And I kind of know what inside it since we have been waiting for it for quite a long time. The official date for my convocation has been set after got delay from the usual date. I got my letter a bit late as I already moved out to our new home and all my mailing address will go to my old place. I (actually my brother) have to go there about twice a month (glad that it still consider near to my new home) and picked up all the letters that we got.

Once I opened the envelope, I read the letter with a smile on my face. I feel like all my hard work has been paid off and I'm so happy! It is not easy (at least for me) to finish my Diploma since I got experienced so many things during my time there. Good and bad, I still remember it until now.

Mama was excited too. She already asked me what I want to wear during my special day. And I've just replied, "It is still early to think about that..." But inside my heart I already planning something to wear. Haha.

So, yeah. I will officially graduate early next year. I will share my journey to the convocation from time to time.

Thanks for reading! Xoxo

5 Exercises that You Can Do On Bed


exercise, fitness

Hi, everyone! I never posted about fitness or something related before, but this time, I would share it with you guys so that if you're a person like me who doesn't like to exercise much can do it too. You know sometimes it is hard for us to go out and do some exercises because we are lazy and didn't have much time to do it. But, did you know that you can even do some exercises in your own bed? Yes, bed. The place where you sleep. You can do it when you feel want to especially when you wake up in the morning or before you going to sleep or whenever you want to.

Here's what I found after doing some research on Internet. Have fun and let's start!


Scissor Legs

Lie on your back with your hands underneath your hips and your palms facing down. Bring both feet straight up into the air and point your toes. Keeping both legs as straight as possible, engage your core as you lower your right leg down toward the bed with control. Without touching down, bring your leg back up to starting position. Then repeat on the opposite side to complete one rep.

Marching Hips Raises

Lie on your back with your knees bent, heels near your butt, and arms along your sides with palms facing down. Press into your heels as you lift your hips up so your body forms a line between your knees and shoulders. Without extending your leg, squeeze your butt as you lift your right foot up off the bed and bring your right knee directly over your right hip. Place your right foot back on the bed and repeat on the left side. That's one rep. Continue to alternate.

Jack Splits

Lie on your back on the bed with your thumbs interlocked, arms and legs outstretched, and feet together. Brace your core as you lift your arms and feet off the bed, keeping knees and elbows locked. Exhale as you lift your legs up and out to form a V, and lift your entire upper body off the bed. As you come up, swing your hands straight forward through the V. With control and without touching the bed, release your arms and legs, and lower back to starting position. That's one rep.

Side Plank

While in regular plank stance, roll your hips to the side, propping yourself up on the side of your right foot. Hold your body straight, propped up on your right foot and right elbow for 15 seconds and then release. Switch to the left side and repeat.


Bicycle Crunches

Lying on your back, bend your knees and place your hands behind your head, elbows bent. Raise your legs up into the air and one at a time, pull one knee forward while raising up to crunch the opposite elbow towards that knee. Continue ‘pedalling’, crunching the left elbow towards the right knee and the right elbow toward the left knee. Crunch 25 times on both sides.

I choose the simple and easy one for you and of course for me to do.  But you know me, no matter how easy it is, I tend to cheat a bit by not doing it at all. From my past experience before, I tend to stick to the exercise for about a week only then I give up. But hopefully not for this one. I think it much easier this way since I don't have to move much since I can just do it on my bed.

Please note that before you're doing any exercises, please warm up first to prevent any injuries or problem after the exercises. Have fun and stay healthy!

Alphabet Advises Challenge (A to Z)

Alphabet Advices Challenge

The idea doing this came when I'm searching for some blog post ideas. I think why not trying to challenge myself to do an Alphabet Advises Challenge post so I can inspire others when they read all the advice that I shared. Seems easy, but it took a bit to complete the whole one with good advice. This is exciting yet hard to try. You will face the moment you forget all the words that you know. You will also face the moment you don't know what sentence to use to make it complete. All the advice below is all from myself. I took it from my tweets, my own quotes that I created and some of them I might already change to my own version.

Without further due, let's get started!



A good place brings you good memories.

Believe in  yourself cause nobody won't.

Cry if you want to. Don't hold it.

Don't make an excuse.

Everyone should respect each other.

Failure is good. You will start again and learn from it.

Good things take time.

Hope is just for someone who is hoping.

It is good to keep in silence rather than speak.

Just do it! People will judge you anyway.

Kill them with your smile.

Let it be.

Make time for everyone.

No matter how hard your life is, try to hide it from others.

Overthinking might destroy you one day.

Pray for the best cause we will never know what will happen next.

Question yourself whether it is right or wrong.

Running away from your problems is the race that you'll never win.

Sometimes being strong is the only choice you have.

Think. Nothing is going to work if you just stay still.

Until the right time come, wait.

Value your relationship with everyone.

Walk away from something that brings you down.

Xtra careful with what you saying and doing.

You're better than you think.

Zero expectation. You won't be hurt. 



Challenge accepted! I did it! But I think I can come out with a better advice. Don't you think so?

Do you want to give it a try? Just do it! I tag everyone who read this post to do the same thing. Don't forget to leave your link so that I can read yours ;)

Thanks for reading! Xoxo


What kind of challenge should I do next?

Things I Struggle With As A Blogger



I bet you know how challenging it is to be a Blogger. There's a lot of things we, Bloggers need to work with. Once we decided to be a Blogger we have to sacrifice everything such as time, money, and more just for your blog. Not matter how challenging it is, we always try to put it away and keep our best to it, right?

There are few things that I need to struggle with as a Blogger, such are :-



1. Writer's Block  

This is the major struggle that I always struggle. I usually ran out of ideas what to update on my blog and that is bad because to wait until the ideas come will take some time and that makes my blog not updated for about a week!

2. Writing a Blog Post  

Even though I already make lists of what to post on my next entry, I still find it is hard because the moment I started to type those entries, my mind was not with me and my heart was not into it. I just stuck at a paragraph and then I close it. To be frank, I took about one to three days for a post and I know it is bad. I need to change that. Not just that, after finished typing the post, I need to check and preview it again and again so that there's no mistakes or errors when I published the post.

3. Pictures on Blog 

The minor problem for me is choosing the right or suitable photos on my post. I do have a few stock photos in my collection but choosing it seems taking a moment (at least for me) because I need to make it relatable to my post and everything. Not to mention taking photos for my review posts. Since I'm not a professional photographer I found it is hard to take good pictures so I just took few shots and choose the best one to put on my blog. I'm currently learning on how to do flat-lay photos, trust me it's hard!

4. Pageviews 

I worked so hard to get my page views back. Back then I used to have at least 1k page views a day during my time sharing drama online, movies links, repost the articles, lyrics and what so ever on my blog since I stopped and deleted almost half of my posts, my page views dropped drastically. It's okay. I have to work harder to achieve back my page views from time to time.

5. Time to Publish 

Some might just publish their post whenever they want, some might have their specific time or day to publish their post. As for me, I just post whenever I want to. But did you know that there's a suitable time to post your entry? (I just noticed that!) For example, the best and most suitable time to publish your post is 10.00 a.m to 12.00 p.m and 9.00 p.m to 1.00 a.m. You also can publish it on 2.00 p.m to 6 p.m which the probability for people to read your post is average.


Thanks for reading! Xoxo


Did you have the same struggles just like me?

Review : IN2IT Eye Colour Palette

Happy Eidul Adha everyone! I'm supposed to publish this entry before Eidul Adha but since I'm busy with the preparation and it seems not having an internet connection at that time I have to postponed it regardless here it is. I got a new package last month and it is a makeup! It is IN2IT Eye Colour Palette in ESC 04 Island Sands. I love it. My makeup collections have been growing from time to time. (Yay!) From the packaging itself, I know it's gonna be good! The moment I got it, I just cannot stop staring, touching, looking at the palette. I already fall in love with it. Oh my...

Until I decided to give it a try.

Fact : When I have free time, I always love to play with all my makeup. I did also create a makeup look using this palette. I'm so shocked by how pigmented it is when I apply it on my eyes. Even though it has a lot of shimmer into it, it still has the colour. This is so different from the shimmer eyeshadow that I've tried before which is from Elianto. Review : here



Packaging

I really really love the packaging. It comes with a white compact case with a cute design in the front case. It looks simple yet elegance. Any product that comes in a compact form I found that it is really handy for me because I can throw it away in my makeup bag since it is in a small size and also it has a mirror which is a bonus so I don't have to bring my own mirror with me.



Product

The product itself is super duper good. In one palette, there are 5 very pigmented shimmery colours that you can work with regarding your own preferences. It has white, bronze, cream, peach with the orangey undertone and dark brown kind of colours. I can say that in a palette you can go with day to night makeup look. Not to mention, it still works the same either you use your fingers or brushes. It is still pigmented. Just take a bit of the eyeshadow because a little goes a long way!


Price

The price is so affordable and worth to spend on. IN2IT offer you a high-quality makeup with affordable price. So don't worry so much I worth it!

You might be noticed that I only mentioned pros, right? How about the cons? There's no con for this product. But, I think if it comes with a brush, it would be great.

Product Details

Soft, sheer eye colour, shimmering with very fine pearl and glitter. Enriched with vitamin E and kernel butter for a smooth and creamy texture. Each palette contains five shades, in a mirror compact, for a variety of eye looks. 

Ingredients : Mica, Talc, Phenyl Trimethicone, Squalane, Diisostearyl Malate, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate/ Hexastearate/ Hexarosinate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Boron Nitride, Nylon-12, Zinc Stearate, Polyethylene terephthalate, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Methylparaben Ethylparaben, Dimethicone, Diethylhexyl Syringylidenemalonate, Silica, Aluminum Calcium Sodium Silica, BHT, Octyldodecanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Methicone, Polyurethane-11, Caprylic/ Capric Triglyceride, Irvingia Gabonensis Kernel Butter, Tin Oxide, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Aluminum. May Contain (+/-): Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891) Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Yellow 5 lake (CI19140), Red 30 lake (CI 73360) , Carmine (CI 75470), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Carbon Black (CI 77266), Manganese Violet (CI 77742)

   

All the shades look so pretty, I can't T.T

After trying and using this product from IN2IT, it makes me want to try more products from them. The first thing I worry about when I having this palette is whether it is good or not because I'm a bit disappointed with my last experienced trying shimmery eyeshadow. But, not with this palette. I love it so much and I think I will wear it more in future.

I will give it ★★★★★. It comes with high-quality makeup, beautiful colours, and affordable price. Totally recommended! As I mentioned before, I would love to try more makeup from IN2IT.

Korean Drama : Cinderella and Four Knights

The last Korean drama that I ever watched was She Was Pretty. But as for now, there's one who caught my attention, and it was Cinderella and Four Knights. First time I saw the title, I thought it will be like an ordinary Cinderella story but I'm wrong. The theory is the same but the storyline is quite different. I currently on Episode 7 (still ongoing) and I really really can't wait to watch the next episodes.

Watch Online : dramanice.at

Korean Dramas 2016


 SYNOPSIS

Based on the novel “Cinderellawa Nemyungui Kisa” by Baek Myo which was first published on 2011-November-4 by BandiBooks. The series was fully pre-produced before its premiere. Eun Ha-Won (Park So Dam) is a high school student who dreams to be a veterinarian but needs money for her education. She ends up living in a mansion, Sky House, with three third-generation chaebol cousins under same conditions. Kang Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyun) is a playboy plutocrat who does whatever he wants while Kang Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo) is soft hearted but lonely and wild-child rebel who rises in status to a member of the royal family in the Sky House. The third cousin, Kang Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin), is a top singer-songwriter who is gentle and kind to Ha-Won.

Description by me : Eun Ha-Won, a 20 years old girl who has quite a lot part time jobs so that she can attend a college. Her father is a lorry driver, so he is rarely at home so Eun Ha-Won lived with her stepmother and stepsister who treat her so badly and ask her to do chores and everything. Something bad happened and the money that she collected and earned before was used for something else. Because of that, she has postponed her intention to go to the college. She also got chased out from the house by her family. Until she meets with a President of Kang. He asked Eun Ha-Won to change his grandchildren also known as Kang's cousins that each of them has their own personalities and characteristics with some offers that will change her life.

This drama will be going to be one of my favourite Korean dramas that I don't mind watching again and again. It's been a while since my last time watching Korean drama (cause I keep rewatching my favourites more than the new dramas) and I glad that this drama caught my heart in watching it.

Thanks for reading! Xoxo
What is your favourite Korean drama at the moment? Any recommendations?

Breakfast Ideas

caffeine, coffee, desk

Hi, everyone. I bet all of you might know how important breakfast is, right? Breakfast is not just a meal but it gives you the energy to start your day. Malaysia has a lot of variety delicious foods and us Malaysian usually take Roti Canai, Nasi Lemak and more as our breakfast. If you want something light but still make you fill full to give you energy? Stay tuned.

This is my Kind of Breakfast. Enjoy!

It might not be the same every single day. It will always change according to my preferences and what I have in my fridge or anything that I have at home.

So, here is some of the breakfast that I make.


1. Toast with Butter and Kaya

This one is the simple one that I can make especially in the morning. Easy one too. I think I don't have to explain on how to make it, right? You know it already ;)

2. Stuffed Egg Roll

All you need is an egg, a pinch of salt, butter, black pepper powder and some vegetables ; carrot, cabbage. Mix the egg, salt, black pepper powder together and whisk it until it well mixed. Heat the pan and melt a bit of butter then pour the egg into the pan. While waiting the egg to cook, you can put the vegetables on the top of it. Once it cooked, roll it up slowly so that it doesn't break. And now your egg roll  is ready to eat! *You can eat it with chili sauce if you want to. So yummy!

3. Half Boiled Egg

This one is simple and easy to make. Bring water to a boil in a pot. Put the egg slowly into the pot and let it boil for 4 to 5 minutes. Take it out and you're ready to eat! But, if it ended up became fully boiled egg (like I always did since I'm not aware of the timing) don't worry. You still can make an egg sandwich with it.

4. Waffle with Butter and Kaya

It just same like toast but I replaced it with waffle. How to make waffle? Here it is. Preheat the waffle iron. In the large bowl, beat an egg until it becomes fluffy. Add flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, salt, baking powder and vanilla essence until it smooth. For the exact recipes ; go here. After you done, spread butter and kaya on each side.


For drinks, it is up to you. You can have a cup of tea or coffee if you want to. But I usually just take only mineral water during my breakfast, but if I feel like making drinks, I will make Milo, tea or coffee. But still, I prefer mineral water compares to those drinks. Hehe

I just noticed that my breakfast are usually from an egg. It is healthy, right? :P

I hope this would be helpful enough for you, for a busy person or even for a person who always skip their breakfast since it is easy to make and doesn't take so much time to prepare. Doing this makes me feel hungry and I need to go down and cook something. See you again!
