Korean Entertainment Agency: Pledis Entertainment (플레디스 엔터테인먼트)

Pledis Entertainment (플레디스 엔터테인먼트) was the last K-pop company that I went during this trip. Initially, I did not plan to go to Pledis as I was tired and already ran out of energy but decided to change my mind as it was maybe 1 or 2 station away from where I was. Can't really remember. Haha.

Pledis might be one of the easiest K-pop companies that one can go to because the direction is easy and straightforward. I think they just moved to their current building when I was there. The building looked nice on the outside but gave an "incomplete" impression. I don't know if I make sense or not but that's how I felt.

Pledis was the only company that I spent time waiting outside of the building. I went there to see the building but got stuck waiting for the unknown for almost 3 hours. Or, was it 4 hours? It was all because I met a SEVENTEEN's Korean fan girl. 

Honestly, I was not hoping to see anyone especially SEVENTEEN's members at all (I'm a fan of SEVENTEEN if anyone curious) but the girl said that the some of the members were in the building cause she heard them practising singing. She also was so sure because it was Jeonghan's birthday and SEVENTEEN usually do V-live at their company whenever they celebrate members birthdays.

On a totally irrelevant note, I can't believe how many gifts that Jeonghan got. I was there for only few hours but the gifts kept coming and they came in various sizes and price tags. It was like a silence competition and honestly, it was actually quite scary to see how much these fans spent on idols.

So, there I was waiting and hoping that I will get to see a glimpse of SEVENTEEN. In the first 2 hours, I only saw few people that I recognized from watching Seventeen Project. I saw their CEO, dancing teacher and composer but none of the members. But lo and behold, this girl was so lucky to get a glimpse of SEVENTEEN's Hoshi & NU'EST's / Wanna One's Minhyun. Say what?!

Will talk about my first and honest impression of Hoshi and Minhyun at the end of this post. And please don't expect rainbow and unicorn as you might be disappointed. 

After seeing them, I decided to leave but I first went to a convenience store to buy banana uyu to quench my thirst. When I was on the way to subway station, I bumped into the Korean girl again and she said, as soon as I left, Woozi came to the building! It was not my luck to see him but the girl was so happy because her bias is Woozi. Good for you, girl! :)


Pledis Entertainment (플레디스 엔터테인먼트)

So, here is my first and honest impression of SEVENTEEN (세븐틴)'s Hoshi & NU'EST (뉴이스트)'s / Wanna One (워너원)'s Minhyun.

SEVENTEEN's Hoshi
Hoshi looked exactly like how he look like on TV. He was never in my handsome guys list so, there's that. Admittedly, he was quite cute, like a bunny. Size/height wise, he looked smaller than what he he look like on TV. But I guess everyone knows that TV adds few pounds. He was not that friendly as he did not smile at all and he looked quite annoyed. He ignored four of us despite the other three kept saying 안녕하세요 to him. He also avoided from making eye contacts with the other girls. Was quite turned off by his attitude but I just gave him benefits of doubt. He might not be in the mood and was tired cause he cycled to the building. Who knows?

NU'EST's / Wanna One's Minhyun
Minhyun on the other hand, was asdfghjklHonestly, I did not recognize him at all when I saw him. I figured he might be one of the NU'EST's members but I did not know his name. Can't blame myself cause the only NU'EST's song that I know is Hello. I actually felt bad afterwards for not recognizing him. Sorry, Minhyun! I felt extra bad as NU'EST had a small presence in South Korea (before they went to Produce 101 Season 2 and gained booming popularity) that none of us or other people over there seemed to recognize him and he actually walked around without his manager or staff.

Anyway, back to the topic. Minhyun was so dreamy! This came from this girl who has no idea who he is at that time. He looked so handsome and sharp and he oozed celebrity's aura. He looked super tall too. His proportion was 100%. Still can't get over how handsome he his in real life. He got brownie points for being polite and kind too. He bowed to us and greeted us eventhough all of us did not know him. He even smiled to us and asked how we were doing while being awkward himself. He also waved at us when he was leaving. He might be one of the most polite, nicest and kindest K-idols that I ever met or seen.

Sadly, I got no picture of or with them because everything happened so fast. I did not feel much about Hoshi but I was sad that I did not think about taking picture of or with Minhyun as he walked past me few times. Now that he's getting big and famous, it will be hard to see him like that again. T___T

"I'm A Hopeless Romantic Who Wears My Heart On Sleeve"

This post was written on July 1, 2015 when my friends and I were busy figuring out our priorities in life. Few of us were just get into a romantic relationship at that time while the rest of us were rooting for them and wondering when will we ever be. Just kidding! :p

*************************
Few of my friends shared this same article; I'm Only 22. I Don't Want Someone Else to Be My Whole World on Facebook. I guess the article really speaks to few of us. Honestly, this article speaks to me on so many levels. I'm gonna highlight few excerpts that I really really really like.

"I'm a firm believer in true love."

"I don't want someone I "won't be able to imagine my life without." I don't want someone to "have my whole heart." I don't want someone to be "my whole world," or "my rock," or "my better half". I don't want somebody who can understand me better than I can understand myself."

"I want to feel whole. I want to be my own rock, my own anchor, my own soul mate. I want to understand myself better than anyone else can. I don’t want to look back and hate myself for altering my future for someone else when I know I wasn’t ready to."

"I am a hopeless romantic who wears my heart on my sleeve."

"I have dreams. I have plans that only involve myself."

"I want to imagine my own life. I want to be able to navigate through life's exciting opportunities and devastating disappointment independently - ..."

Why this article speaks to me on so many levels?

This article speaks to me on so many levels because while I love all the lovey dovey and cheesy stuffs and considered myself to be a hopeless romantic, I see myself to be single for the rest of my 20s. I don't want to being bombarded with cliche questions like "Farah dah ada boyfriend ke belum?", "Farah nak kahwin bila?" for the rest of my 20s. 

I also have plans (a lot of plans) that involve myself and myself only. I have no idea what Allah has planned for me in the future, but this is how I truly feel right now. This is how I see my future self. But of course, man proposes, Allah disposes. I'm gonna be thankful for whatever Allah has written for me :)

p.s: After two years, all these words still ring true to the core. I still feel this way :)

Myeongdong Cat Cafe, Myeongdong (명동)

I went to Myeongdong (명동) few times when I was in South Korea. However, my motives of each visit to Myeongdong was different. On this one particular hot day, I went there to go to a cat cafe. Initially, I wanted to go to another cat cafe. I had the name and address ready but I still got lost while looking for the cafe. So, I decided to go to Myeongdong Cat Cafe instead, as its mascot was more than happy to escort me to the cat cafe.

Myeongdong Cat Cafe, Myeongdong(명동)

Tips: You need to sanitize your hands before entering the cat cafe. Use the hand sanitizer provided by the cafe. 

The one time entrance fee for Myeongdong Cat Cafe was 7,000 ₩ and by paying the entrance fee, you were entitled for a free cup of beverage. I chose orange juice because I did not really like the other options that they had. There is no time limit so one can stay as long as they want provided they do not go out from the premise. As far as I can remember, I stayed for quite a long time. 5 to 6 hours, perhaps? I know, crazy long, right? It was all because most of the cats were sleeping during the first three hours, so I need to wait for them to wake up.

Myeongdong Cat Cafe, Myeongdong (명동)
This cat sat close to me during the whole time. Now that I think about it, it must be because I sat at his/her favorite spot. 

Oh, you also will be given a big plastic bag so that you can put all your personal belongings like your bag in the plastic bag. I think it is for hygienic purpose and to prevent the cats from scratching your personal belongings. The cat above actually jumped into my plastic bag and sniffed my backpack and handbag. I feel bad for her/him because there was nothing edible in my bags. #sispunkebulur

Tips: I personally do not recommend ordering snacks and desserts as cat hair is everywhere. Unless you are okay with somewhat compromised hygiene, you should be okay with your free beverage. After all, you come to play with the cats, not to eat snacks and desserts, no?

Myeongdong Cat Cafe, Myeongdong (명동)
Some of the cats.

Myeongdong Cat Cafe had cats from various breeds. I can't really pinpoint each breed as I am illiterate in this aspect, but trust me, almost all of them were cute. I said almost because they had sphynx cats which I did not find cute at all. Though I did not find sphynx cats cute at all, I still found them interesting. Each to their own, no?

Myeongdong Cat Cafe, Myeongdong (명동)
Most probably the cutest cat that I saw at Myeongdong Cat Cafe, Myeongdong (명동)

Anyway, as I mentioned before, I spent about 5 or 6 hours here because most of the cats were sleeping during the first three hours. I spent half of the time waiting and playing with my phones while hoping the cats will be up soon. Everything was so calm when most of the cats were sleeping but it became a lil bit chaotic once they all woke up. I actually laughed like crazy when I saw how hectic it was when the cats were up. Thank god, there were not many humans when I was there. Can't imagine how crazy and cramp it will be if there are a lot of humans and cats in one space. 

Myeongdong Cat Cafe, Myeongdong (명동)

All in all, it was such a nice me time for me. It was a well spent lazy and hot day. I got to spend the time by myself and playing with those cute cats (okay, more like to staring at those cute cats and being judged by them). 

Tips: Use the lint roller provided by the cafe to get rid of the cat hair before you leave the cafe. You don't want your clothes to be full with cat hair for the rest of the day especially if you are going to eat at a restaurant next.

Midnight Runners (청년경찰) (2017)

Midnight Runners (청년경찰) was Kang Ha Neul's last movie before he enlisted, so in some hedonistic ways, I felt obligated to watch this movie. Well, I guess it was more to fangirl in me that pushed me to watch this movie cause you should know by now that #kanghaneulmydreamoppa

Snippet of the movie (From Wikipedia)
The story is about two Korean National Police University students, Ki-joon (Park Seo Joon) and Hee-yeol (Kang Ha Neul), who witness a kidnapping and track it down. When the authorities reach a dead end due to lack of evidence and frustrating bureaucratic obstacles, they decide to embark on their own amateur investigation, which gets them into all sorts of hilarious troubles.

My thoughts
Firstly, I watched this movie solely because of Kang Ha Neul (강하늘) so I was ready to be biased and say all the good stuff. Plus, I read few reviews raving how good this movie was so I was prepared for the goodness called this movie. But sadly, this movie fell short of my expectation, not that I have high expectation of this movie, anyway. I think this movie was still fun and entertaining and I enjoyed it but something was definitely missing and I had no idea what.

Having said that, I had a good laugh during few (okay, more to many) scenes. Both Park Seo Joon and Kang Ha Neul were endearingly hilarious and may I say, dumb in most scenes that you can't help but laughing and grinning at and with them. There were few scenes that really tickled my heart that I did not mind to keep rewatching those said scenes. But, there were also few scenes that were utterly ridiculous that made me laugh at myself and questioned myself "why am I watching this?" or "why am I laughing at this ridiculous jokes/dialogues/scenes?". Joke on me, ha!

I also liked how well Park Seo Joon and Kang Ha Neul characters complemented each other. #bromancegamestrong While I liked Kang Ha Neul being a nerd (or maybe bookworm is the more appropriate term for his character), I did not really fancy Park Seo Joon being a somewhat fool. But together, they had a synergy and made me love them both. Anyway, each to their opinion, right :)

Though it fell short of my expectation, I still recommend this movie if you're looking for something light, fun, and entertaining. And, it does not hurt to have two heartthrobs as the main leads, right :p

Exploring Perhentian Kecil Island With Sealife Inn

I have always wanted to go to Terengganu especially those beautiful islands there but unable to do so due to few constraints such as time, money, and distance. So, when I got back from Canada last year and had ample free time and a lil bit of savings, I made an impromptu suggestion to my Adik to go for a trip to Perhentian Kecil Island. Thankfully, she said yes and she even suggested that we should explore few other places in Terengganu.

Anyway, we started searching for the best Perhentian Kecil Island package once we got consent from our parents. I faintly remembered reading about a package offered by Sealife Inn on Kak Huda's blog. So, I made a quick Google search about packages offered by Sealife Inn and showed a package that I considered suitable for us to my Adik. Thankfully, she said the package was quite good. Not exactly the cheapest (there were a lot of other cheaper options offered by Sealife Inn and other parties) but we liked what they offered.

Perhentian Islands

We booked 3 Days 2 Night Full Board Package at Sealife Inn's VIP Room as there were only two of us. Each of us paid MYR 320 for this package which we thought was quite affordable. Listed below were the things that included in the package.

  • Two ways speedboat transfer from Kuala Besut jetty
  • 3 days 2 nights stay at Sealife Inn (air-conditioned room)
  • 2 breakfasts
  • 2 lunches
  • 1 dinner
  • 1 BBQ dinner
  • 1 snorkeling trip by boat including the equipment (5-6 snorkeling points) 

What made we (I, actually) chose this package were the air-conditioned room and 24 hours of electrical supply. I have yet to reacclimatize to Malaysia's weather at that time so air-conditioned room was a must for me for Malaysia's heat and humidity were killing me. I was truly grateful for the air-conditioned room! :)

In terms of booking, it was super easy and hassle-free to book the package. I just whatsapp-ed the number on Sealife Inn's website. The staffs replied us promptly with the needed information. They also patiently answered all my stupid and childish questions.

Farah & School of Fish

My Adik and I were greatly satisfied with the services and hospitality provided by Sealife Inn. Sealife Inn's staffs that we met during our actual trip were courteous, helpful, friendly, and professional. The room that we stayed was cozy, clean, and spacious. The food served throughout the three days were fulfilling and delicious too, alhamdulillah.

I highly recommend this package or other packages offered by Sealife Inn if you're looking to visit Perhentian Islands on a tight budget yet you don't want to compromise the comfort.

p.s: Full details about this trip to Perhentian Kecil Island and Terengganu in general should be up in the next few months, insya Allah :)

First Sunset In Town Of Banff

Recently (October 24, 2017 to be exact), I got a chance to witness my first sunset in Town of Banff. A beautiful one in this case. It was a tad late considering I have been living here for almost two months. Nevertheless, I was truly grateful for the sweet chance, alhamdulillah.

Below was the picture of the sunset that I uploaded on my public Instagram.

Hongdae Free Market (홍대 프리마켓)

Hongdae (홍대) in general is one of my favorite neighborhoods in South Korea as I mentioned in my previous post. Besides street performances that usually take place at the Hongdae Walking Street, another reason that I love Hongdae so much is because of Hongdae Free Market (홍대 프리마켓). Hongdae Free Market is an arts market cum festival which takes place every Saturday from 1:00 PM until 6:00 PM. However, it is only held from March to November. Cause let's be real, nobody got time to sit outside during the cold winter, right?

Hongdae Free Market (홍대 프리마켓)
Wanted to buy the passport cover but I just bought a new passport cover few months before T___T

I like going to Hongdae Free Market because I want to treat my eyes with those beautiful arts and creations. I am in no way an artsy person (well, I can't even draw proper stick figures) but I do love seeing cute and beautiful stuff. So, my heart always feel full and light whenever I'm at the Hongdae Free Market. However, one may have different opinions from me. I read few reviews saying the arts and creations at Hongdae Free Market are just ordinary and there are nothing special about them. I guess, each to their own, right :)

Hongdae Free Market (홍대 프리마켓)

It was pretty busy and crowded when I went to the Hongdae Free Market. I expected it to be less busier as I went there quite late, around 4 PM but oh boy, did I was wrong. It seemed like everyone and their mothers (just kidding!) decided to go there around 4 PM too. I actually felt too overwhelmed that I was frozen for almost five minutes just to process all things that were happening around me.

Tips: Go to Hongdae Free Market later at evening if you do not mind being in the crowded place, as you may get a number of discounts from the sellers.

Hongdae Free Market (홍대 프리마켓)
One of the two performers that I managed to watch. I believe they are called 2story.

I walked around the market for few times just to fully satisfy my inner desires and to mark few things that I really want to buy. After walking around for the umpteenth times, I decided to sit and watch the Afternoon Stage. There were few performers performing at that time. I managed to watch two performers only which was not too bad. I did not really like their music as much as I like WeAreYoung's music but again, each to their own :)

Hongdae Free Market (홍대 프리마켓) - Renci Candy

My highlight for this visit to Hongdae Free Market was to meet this lovely lady and to purchase her postcards. I liked almost all her products, be it fan, stickers, fridge magnets, wall decorations, or postcards. They were so cute and totally my style. I wanted to buy them all but couldn't to do so due to my limited budget T___T

Tips: Be friendly to the art creators and buy numbers of things for that you will get a friendly service and some free stuff.

Hongdae Free Market (홍대 프리마켓)

Is Hongdae Free Market worth visiting and would I go to Hongdae Free Market again?
Yes, Hongdae Free Market is worth visiting if you like arts and cute stuff. If you are not into these, it is best for you to skip Hongdae Free Market.

&

As much as I love Hongdae Free Market, I'm not sure if I want to go to again. Yes, the arts, creations, and performances will be different each time so they might offer different experience but I think I have grabbed the essence of it so it does not really excite me anymore.

Side note: I actually went to the Hongdae Free Market again during my recent layover but I guess that will be another story for another blog post :)

Misaeng: Incomplete Life (미생 - 아직 살아 있지 못한 자) (2014)

Wow! Wow! Wow! I didn't realize that it has been 3 years since Misaeng: Incomplete Life (미생 - 아직 살아 있지 못한 자) was aired in South Korea. Meant to do a review about this drama 3 years ago, but I was too occupied with my study and all fun stuff :p I missed the golden timing to do the review (okay, more like to fangirling honestly) but I think this drama is too precious and valuable to be ignored.

Snippet of the drama (From Wikipedia)
Since he was a child, the board game baduk has been everything to Jang Geu-rae (Im Si Wan). But when he fails at achieving his dream of becoming a professional baduk player, Geu-rae must leave his isolated existence and enter the real world armed with nothing but a high school equivalency exam on his resume. Through an acquaintance's recommendation, he gets hired as an intern at One International, a large trading company.

There, Geu-rae meets his boss, manager Oh Sang-shik (Lee Sung Min), who's a workaholic and has a warm personality; fellow intern Ahn Young-yi (Kang Sora), who attracts her colleagues' ire because of her impressive educational credentials and by being extremely competent at any task; and Jang Baek-ki (Kang Ha Neul), a geeky co-worker whose anxious nature masks his inner ambition. Geu-rae learns to navigate and adapt to corporate culture, with baduk as his guide

Misaeng: Incomplete Life (미생 - 아직 살아 있지 못한 자)

My thoughts
If I were to choose the best Korean drama that I ever watched in my entire life, Misaeng would be the winner! And I think that weighs a lot as I have watched a good amount of Korean dramas for the past 13 years. *Wow! Couldn't believe I started watching Korean dramas 13 years ago.* But then, I only started watching Korean drama religiously since 8 years ago, so I guess the first 5 years does not really count :p

Honestly, I started watching Misaeng because of Kang Ha Neul (강하늘) cause y'know #kanghaneulmydreamoppa but I decided to keep watching the drama because of the drama itself. Misaeng has such a beautiful cinematography despite having a dark and dull tones throughout 20 episodes. All the characters were excellently portrayed too. Scarily (in a very good way), Misaeng managed to flip your opinions about some characters because you will be reminded that all of them are humans and there are no perfect human beings. I hated Jang Baek Ki (I hated Kang Ha Neul guysss T____T) and Han Seok Yeol at first but I learnt to accept them and love them throughout the drama.

However, I think I love Misaeng so much (maybe a lil bit too much!) because it spoke to me on so many levels. I can relate to almost everything that happened in Misaeng so much that it hurts. Misaeng might be the only drama that I felt so emotionally connected and invested that it drained my energy and emotions. I was a total wreck whenever I watched this drama.

I felt like I learnt new things and grew together with all my favorite characters. I cried together with them whenever they cried. I felt their pain whenever they were in pain. I was genuinely happy for them whenever they were happy. I struggled together with them whenever they struggled. I rooted and prayed for their success. I became so protective of my favorite characters especially Jang Geu-Rae and Chief Oh. I also hated all the antagonists who made my favorite characters' lives hard to my bones. God knows how much tears I spilled, how many curse words I uttered and how much time I spent sleeping just to relieve my headache and frustration after watching every episodes of Misaeng.

Misaeng felt so honest, real and relatable to its core. There was something about Misaeng that hit home for me. Yes, sometimes it was hard for me to enjoy this drama because it was too depressing, but I found myself to keep coming and watching this drama because it was so relatable.

I highly recommend this drama if you are looking for something real and honest and something other than cheesy and romance dramas. Admittedly, this drama might not be a cup tea for everyone but sadly, you will be missing out such an excellent and high quality drama if you do not watch this drama. That's all I can say.

Update: I have included the trailer of this drama so that you can peek through this goodness called Misaeng :)

Looking Back At All My Old Blog Posts

I took my time recently rereading my old blog posts, from this blog and the previous two, just to see what I had been thinking and posting for the past eight years. And boy, did I get a good laugh just from rereading all of them :)

For most part, I can see how childish and simple-minded I was when writing and publishing all those hundred posts. Especially all the blog posts that was written when I was in high school and my first two years in university. How come no one ever told me about that? I am so sorry to all the previous and/or current readers for you to read all those childish stuff.

I also noticed a trend in my blog posts that still exists until now. I always write about my life. As if my life is so interesting to talk about, eh. But when I think about it, I started writing blog because I wanted it to be a medium where I can express my feelings, my tangled thoughts and my homesickness. I also wanted it to be a medium where I can come back to reminisce my old memories and to look back at my past which I may have forgotten. So, I think all my blogs, including this one have served or currently serve their ultimate purpose.

On a side note, I am very much aware that all my blogs did not and still does not give added benefits to most of the readers. For that, I am deeply sorry.

Additionally, what I love from rereading all those post was I can see how I actually valued and felt thankful for all the small things that happened in my life. And what made me extra happy was to see that this attribute of mine has not really changed after all these years. Indeed, I was and still am #easilypleased #easilytouched #mudahterhibur.


Her Little Guilty Pleasures
My current happy space :)

I also have noticed few different things after rereading all my blog posts and honestly, I had mixed feelings upon discovering all these things. Firstly, I used to write a good number of blog posts in fully Malay. While I like the fact that I can actually write in Malay, it made my head and heart hurt cause I sounded so childish, awkward and skema whenever I wrote blog posts in fully Malay.

Secondly, I had a lot of blog posts written in bahasa rojak. I honestly love bahasa rojak so much that it hurts. In fact, I think I prefer bahasa rojak more than English. I realized that I actually sounded more happy and natural whenever I wrote blog posts in bahasa rojak. However, I sounded too childish too whenever I wrote in bahasa rojak and this really kills me.

I know I am very much childish at heart, but how come this little fact is so apparent and crystal clear whenever I am writing? For god sake, I'm nearing my mid 20s and I still sound like an excited little girl T___T

Nevertheless, I have enjoyed my time rereading all my old blog posts. It was a joyful ride filled with laughter mostly due to my embarrassment. Most probably will not do it again in the next few months as I have decided to enjoy my current life and live in the present! :)

That being said, I have decided to repost a number of blog posts that have never seen the light due to various reasons. I also will repost a number of travel-related and Canada-related blog posts so that it will be easier for me to talk a trip down memory lane which probably will take place in the next few years? :)

For those who have been with me and my blogs since few years ago, what did you like the most and the least about my blogs and my blog posts? What kind of content would like to see more on this humbly blog of mine? Would appreciate any inputs for that I can improve in the future, insya Allah. Many thanks in advance! :)

Because I Love You (사랑하기 때문에) (2017)

It is no secret for people around me that I am a huge fan of Cha Tae Hyun (차태현). I like him for his personality but I am obsessed with him because of his laughter. Never in my life I would think that I can fancy someone just because of his/her laughter but Cha Tae Hyun did just that. I even have my own hashtag for Cha Tae Hyun #chataehyunmydreamnampyeon that I used when I went to South Korea last year.

So, it was no-brainer for me to watch one of his latest movies; Because I Love You (사랑하기 때문에). Anything that can help me with my fix of Cha Tae Hyun, right? And boy did I glad that I picked up this movie :)

Snippet of the movie (based on few of my readings)
Because I Love You is about Lee Hyeong (Cha Tae Hyun) who becomes a spirit after an accident and starts entering the bodies of several different people struggling with love. As he enters several bodies, he gets to experience love at all ages; from the flaming youth, to middle-aged enlightenment, to an older couple who have years of strong love behind them. While possessing the bodies, he acts as a Cupid who helps to remind the person of what it means to love.

My thoughts
This movie screams Cha Tae Hyun so much! You will know what I mean by that if you have watched any Cha Tae Hyun's movies. It was a simple and enjoyable movie yet very heartwarming. I laughed, I giggled, and I cried to my heart content while watching this movie. It was such an emotional roller coaster ride for me. I did not expect it to be like this because for the good first half of the movie, it was funny and humorous. Then, the emotions changed for the later half. I especially bawled my eyes out when the older couple appeared and when Lee Hyeong tried to conclude his own story. The only thing that I find it regretful was each story in this movie felt too short. I just wish each story had a tad in-depth background story. Other than that, I'm good!

Additionally, I particularly love this movie so much because they use Because I Love You by Yoo Jae Ha. This movie is actually a tribute to Yoo Jae Ha. The movie's name comes from Yoo Jae Ha's hit song; Because I Love You which happens to be one of my favourite songs too. If you read my previous post; Songs To Listen To When You Work Graveyard Shifts, you can see Because I Love You (though I put Heaven's version) was on the top of the list.

Anyway, I highly recommend this movie if you need something that will make you feel good or if you are in need of heartwarming dosage in your life :)

p.s: Please prepare a box of tissue too as you may cry while watching this movie.

Update: I have included the trailer of this movie so that you can have a better sense of this movie.

Songs To Listen To When You Work Graveyard Shifts

I noticed that I have been listening to these few same songs every night to help me get through my graveyard shifts. Love to share them with the rest of you as they may be your cup of tea as well. As you reading this post and listening to the songs, you may notice that most of the songs are kinda slow and soothing or fall in acoustic genre. 

These kind of songs are all that I need instead of upbeat songs as I value peaceful and quiet night. They may not wake me up (well, I don't really feel sleepy when I am working) but they make me happy in a calming way and make the nights more bearable whenever I have nothing to do. Maybe you will feel the same way too?

The songs are listed solely according to my preference; from the most played song to the least played song. Enjoy :)

Heaven - Because I Love You (사랑하기 때문에)

WeAreYoung (위아영) - The First Moment #2 (처음 널 보고 #2)

 
Sweet Sorrow (스윗소로우) - Because You're Here (그대가 있어서)

 
Lee Juck (이적) - Don't Worry, Dear (걱정말아요 그대)


John Park(존박) - Thought Of You (네 생각)

On Starting Anew & Challenging Myself

Am writing this post to remind myself that I actually started doing something for the betterment of my life after going through a long dark period. 

Some of you might have been wondering where did I go for the past one year. I rarely appeared online. I stopped updating my previous blog (and eventually closed the blog down) and Instagram. Basically, I left my virtual life hanging. I received few comments and DMs from other bloggers asking about my whereabouts which I unintentionally ignored. Sorry for that and thank you so much for showing that you care :)

Honestly, I did not go anywhere. I was exactly in my place but at the dark corner of it. I was struggling emotionally and mentally due to the changes that happened in my life. I am not ready to go into the details yet but the essence of the dark feelings revolved mainly around my failure to get a decent job in Malaysia and the struggle to readapt myself with Malaysia.

I knew how dangerous those feeling were, so I decided to come back to Canada despite getting resistance from my family, initially. It might not be the best decision as I might experience those feelings again in the future but at least, this decision that I made provided me with some temporary comfort while I am looking for another permanent solution.

When I decided to come back to Canada, I told myself that I will not allow myself to feel that way again. As such, I have decided to take few new challenges in order to give my life a new life and to celebrate the new start. Some of the challenges that I decided to embrace are; 
  • to revisit my hafazan
  • to lose weight
  • to learn how to use chopsticks
  • to do something that I am uncomfortable doing 
  • to learn how to read Hangul
  • to gain new sets of skill and knowledge
  • to read more English books
just to name a few. These challenges might seem small to other people but they are really big for me. These are things that I put a hold on from doing for years just because I'm afraid of the failure and to step out from my comfort zone or I don't feel like doing it or I'm just plain lazy. 

The progress of embracing these challenges has been somewhat encouraging. I know I can do better but I like to remind myself that it is okay not to rush things and it is okay if I have hiccups along the way. Some of the progress that I have made;
  • My hafazan are slowly coming back to me
  • I have lost nearly 6 kg - I think altitude played a big role here. haha!
  • I can somewhat use chopsticks now. I can even use Korean chopsticks to eat banchan.
  • I am currently working in a position where I need to do all sort of stuff that I am not comfortable doing.
  • I finally have memorized all the Hangul characters! :D
I guess, cheers to the new start and challenges? :)

p.s: Would appreciate a prayer from you. May Allah ease everything for us. Insya Allah :)

Lost & Found | WeAreYoung (위아영)

I was lost while making my way to the Hongdae Free Market (홍대 프리마켓) and I accidentally discovered this indie band called WeAreYoung (위아영) when I was busy looking for the right direction. I absentmindedly watched their rehearsal and was intrigued to know more about the band (cause I love their music - it is totally my style!) that I decided to show up during the actual show. Did not regret my decision at all though I have to cut my visit to Hongdae Free Market short and change my whole plan for that day.

Hongdae (홍대) Walking Street

They had just a nice 45-minutes performances with most of the songs are cover songs. If I remember correctly, they only sang one or two of their own songs. However, I can be wrong too as I did not understand the whole ment that they had during the show. lol! I think this show was a part of series of introducing relatively new and well-known indie bands who have been performing at coffee shops all over Hongdae. Additionally, I think the show was meant to hopefully introduce them to a larger crowd before debuting.

In case you're wondering, they have not debuted yet at that time. I think they just debuted this year with the song - Only I Love You (다만 널 사랑하고 있어). I listened to this song for the first time during their show. Did not know that this song is theirs at that time. I love this song for its simplicity and melody.



Right after the show, I approached their manager (I think) and asked for their Facebook page cause I felt that I might need my dosage of WeAreYoung once I left South Korea. The manager was so nice and polite. He helped me to search their Facebook page and introduced me to the members, Kyungmin (경민) & Kihoon (기훈). Both of the members came across as quite shy but I think Kyungmin was too shy while Kihoon was a lil bit more bubbly and cheerful. We only talked for a bit (#languagebarrier) and took picture after that :)


Farah & WeAreYoung (위아영)
WeAreYoung (위아영) & I

Aside of knowing another K-indie band, I think this was one of the incidents that exemplify the beauty of travelling for me, personally. I find that it is okay to be lost (literally and figuratively) and not knowing where you should go next as you move along sometimes. I also learn that best-laid plans often fall apart. Well, I am not saying that I had the best-laid plans during that time but at least, I had a plan. And it fell through. Big time!  I also like to think that sometimes detours and bumps that you had along your way are meant to lead you and show you something new, interesting, and unexpected. A girl gotta find a silver lining, right?

p.s: They just released a new single yesterday and I love it so much! :D

Hongdae (홍대)

Hongdae (홍대)

Hongdae (홍대) might be one of the neighborhoods in South Korea that I love so much. But then, I did not get to explore other neighborhoods like Sinchon-dong (신촌동), Daehangno (대학로), Hapjeong-dong (합정동) and Sinsa-dong (신사동) to name a few, so there's that. While I love Hongdae, I have made a note for myself that Hongdae always makes my senses overload and I might feel overwhelmed whenever I'm around the area.

Hongdae (홍대)

Interesting thing to note: you can barely see any older adults walking around Hongdae except the store owners as Hongdae is mainly dominated by local youths. So, this is the place that you want to go if you want to meet and see young locals.

Not the best picture, I know.

I love Hongdae mainly due to the street performances at the Hongdae Walking Street. Most of the times I stick to the acoustic performances or whoever performs songs that I am familiar with. I can easily spend a day here doing nothing but listening to all the street performances. I think I spent about almost 10 hours in Hongdae during my visit. I know, crazy right?

Street Performance at Hongdae
Absolutely adore this guy's voice!

I listened to him singing just for a bit during that time but his voice was truly ear-pleasing. Did not stay for longer cause I did not know the songs that he were singing. Fast forward almost a year later, I actually stayed for his performances for about 2 hours and I just realized that as I am writing this post! :) 

Street Performance at Hongdae
My favorite performers of that day! :)

These three buskers from Busan were the reason why I spent too much time at Hongdae. I was about to walk away from Hongdae when they started singing Cool's song - Sorrow. I told myself that I am going to stay until the end of the song only but then, they started singing GOD's song - One Candle after that. Next, they sang SECHSKIES' song - Couple. Guys, those are among of my zillions favorite old K-pop songs! It was hard to hear other performers singing those songs. I ended up listening to their performances for about 4 hours! 4 hours of my life just flew away like that. I regretted that fact a bit but who am I kidding? I truly enjoyed myself for that 4 hours.

Hongdae (홍대)

While I hate myself for spending too much time at Hongdae, Hongdae is definitely a neighborhood that I find myself keep coming to whenever I am in South Korea. The indie performances steal my heart. The interesting crowd makes people-watching so entertaining and fun! Maybe, just maybe, if I get a lil bit older, I will not fancy Hongdae anymore. Until then, I can picture myself enjoying Hongdae scene whenever I have a chance. Haha!

Downtown Calgary

Calgary Tower from Olympic Plaza

Went to Calgary for 2 nights for a shopping trip. Did not get to buy everything that were not on my list. Did not get to go to every places that were on my list but my heart felt full. So full that it almost burst out with joy. It was funny for me to feel that that way cause I am not a fan of big city. I guess living at the Rockies has taken a toll on me eh.

I'll see you next time, Calgary? :)

COMMON GROUND (커먼그라운드)

I started one of my days in South Korea by going to the COMMON GROUND (커먼그라운드). Again, I never know the existence of this place until I landed in South Korea. Thanks to the Instagram (again!), I found out about this place. From the Instagram pictures, I can see that this place is so Instagrammable. It will be easily slipped into one of the must visit places in Seoul if you like all the hispter places. (I'm using the hipster word the way the youngsters in Malaysia use it).

COMMON GROUND 커먼그라운드

From my brief reading, COMMON GROUND is South Korea's first and world's largest container shopping mall built with prefabricated 200 containers. (I totally googled prefabricated after my reading - man, how I wish I had an expansive vocabulary). It is also a result of the experiment of revitalizing unused land in the middle of city. I guess the South Korean government had this idea, "Why waste a piece of land when you can build something and generate money?" Just kidding! You can see how impactful COMMON GROUND is when you compare it to the surrounding buildings. It is definitely eye-catching and attention-grabbing.

COMMON GROUND 커먼그라운드

COMMON GROUND is divided into two sections; Street Market and Market Hall. Pretty sure they tried to emphasize the difference in the space designs and the vibes between the Street Market and Market Hall as that the only difference between that two that I remembered. Plus, as far as I remember, the items sold at both sections are quite similar like clothes, shoes, make-up products, phone cases, and few food & beverage establishments.

As COMMON GROUND is not that big though it is the world's largest container shopping mall, I spent about 3 hours here just to fully satisfy the desire of photographer in me. I also had fun people watching here. The people there were so interesting and fascinating.

COMMON GROUND 커먼그라운드

During my visit, Levi's actually had a pop-up store there. While I am not really sure what and how many products they carried at the pop-up store, I have to say that I really like the marketing idea of Levi's. They knew the target market and fully utilized what COMMON GROUND has to offer. As you can see, they had props with relevant hashtags - which I am pretty sure will make one's pictures look Instagrammable. I actually saw few girls spent almost two hours just to take OOTD around there. Crazy eh.

Tips: Wear your fashionable casual street style outfit if you want to take your best OOTD here.

COMMON GROUND 커먼그라운드

Is COMMON GROUND worth visiting?
It depends as it will be a hit or miss for some people. For me, I think COMMON GROUND is worth visiting because I like seeing something new. Well, I have never been to container shopping mall before, let alone the world's largest one, so there's that. I also like taking pictures and people watching, which what I did at the COMMON GROUND during my visit.

Lac Beauvert

Lac Beauvert

Went to Jasper National Park for few days after my short stint at Lake Louise and before settling down at the Town of Banff. Went for a walk around the ever beautiful Lac Beauver (do you guys still remember this lake?) and it brought back all my past memories. Jasper still feels like home after all these years, but it would never be the same without my girlfriends :)

Lake Louise

Lake Louise

Can't help but to miss this beautiful place. Though I only get to call this place home just for over a week, the memories that I made over there will last for a lifetime. Lake Louise, I miss you! Will definitely visit you again once I get used to my working life here and once I have a longer days off. :)

Haneul Park (하늘공원)

The first post of what would be an endless posts about South Korea is about one of my favourite parks in South Korea; Haneul Park or Sky Park or known as Haneul Gongwon (하늘공원) among the locals.

I did not know the existence of Haneul Park until I landed in South Korea. I was looking for other interesting places to be visited in South Korea because I did not feel like going to the places listed on the list that I made prior to the trip. Accidentally, I found this place on Instagram. Oh my, you have to see the pictures. They were so pretty!

Haneul Park 하늘공원

Sold by the pictures that I saw on Instagram, I made a quick google search. I found out that those kind of pictures that I saw on Instagram were taken during Eulalia Festival that takes place sometime in October - that's when Haneul Park looks the prettiest. Too bad I was there during the shoulder season. But, Farah being Farah, I decided to visit the park. So, off I went on one of those days.

Getting to Haneul Park was a lil bit challenge for me cause the direction that I read was not detailed. Asking questions to locals were lil bit hard too cause all people that I bumped into over there were all old people. Thankfully, I managed to find the right direction. It took me 30 minutes from the nearest subway station to reach to the starting point of Haneul Park.

Tips: Please be fully prepared with detailed direction if you're visiting Haneul Park. Or at least know how to pronounce Haneul Park in Hangul. I believe most of the people that you will meet there are old people and they do not speak English.

Haneul Park 하늘공원

Once you reached the starting point of Haneul Park, you have two choices; to take a shuttle to the top or to hike to the top. As I was given wrong explanation by an ahjussi at the information counter, I actually hiked to the top cause I thought that's the only way to reach the top. I don't really remember how long did I take to reach to the top but I remembered I was panting like crazy while hiking. I was also dehydrated in the middle of journey to the top.

But once I reached the top, the fatigue was gone! I was blown away by the view. Granted, it was not as pretty as during Eulalia Festival, but it was still pretty for me! Aside of the grass view, I was served by the view of Seoul! I can see Namsan Tower, Bukhansan Mountain, and Hangang River clearly from the top.

Haneul Park 하늘공원

There are also a few windmills at the Haneul Park. They make a pretty picture if you know the right angles. I obviously am not that good so all the windmills in my pictures looked like just regular poles. #kesian #nogoingtouploadthosepatheticpictures

As Haneul Park is very #aestheticallypleasing, there are many designated photo spots available around the park. I did not count the exact amount but pretty sure, there are a lot. So, if you are a noob in taking picture, just like me, just stand at the designated photo spots and you are good to go.

Haneul Park 하늘공원

I'll just call this thing postal boxes. I have no idea the real name of this thing. These postal boxes are one of the famous photo spots in Haneul Park, So, if you're visiting Haneul Park, do not forget to take pictures here :)

I spent a solid 5 hours at Haneul Park because it was suddenly raining heavily when I was about to hike down. The rain lasted about 1 hour, so I happily waited for the rain to stop with the view of beautiful Haneul Park. But I had to say, though I spent 4 hours walking around the park, I did not manage to walk around the whole park because the park is relatively big and it has a lot of small lanes that you can choose to walk to.

Tips: Always check the weather forecast and always bring umbrella if you're travelling during the shoulder season.

Haneul Park 하늘공원

Haneul Park also has this Slow Mailbox where you can send a letter or postcard to future yourself or anyone, really. I like this idea of Slow Mailbox cause I think it is pretty cool. I particularly love what was written on the sign,
"In this digital society where everything moves so fast, Slow Mailbox reminds us the meaning of patience and gives us a chance to handwrite a letter."
The Slow Mailbox will send the letter or postcard twice a year: during Seollal and Chuseok holidays. I wanted to send a postcard to future myself but was unable to do so because the tourist information centre was closed at that time. It was a real bummer but hopefully I can send one in the future.

To reiterate, Haneul Park is of my favourite parks that I have been in South Korea. I just wish I went there when the weather was pretty or when it was not too hot or when it was not raining. Oh, and how I wish I went there with someone so that said person can help me to take my pictures. lol! :D

Would I go back and visit Haneul Park in the future?
Definitely yes, in a heartbeat! Hope I can visit Haneul Park during the Eulalia Festival next time :)

p.s: Such a bittersweet coincidence that I am publishing this post on Kang Ha Neul's enlistment day. See you after 2 years, Kang Ha Neul! :)

Reflection On My 1-Month Trip To South Korea

This is a long time coming post. Meant to write this post few months after my trip but life happens - a depressing ones for the fact. So, here I am, finally writing and publishing this post after a year!

My trip to South Korea last year was fun and good but it was not always butterflies and rainbows. And honestly, it left me so much to be desired. All these thanks to all the experience that I went through, the memories that I made, and the countless stupid rookie mistakes that I made. I was not entirely happy with the trip - I think I can do it better, but I was still grateful for all the life lessons that I gained during the trip.

Here are bunch of pointers that I realized after my 1-month trip to South Korea.

Farah at the KLIA

1. I am not good at managing my money/budget.
It hurts my pride to admit to this one fact cause most people around me keep telling me that I am good at managing my money but the truth is, I am not! I blew out a good portion of my money just for shopping. I can actually extend my stay in South Korea for another 2 months or I can even go for a 2-3 weeks Europe trip with the amount of money that I spent on shopping. This was something that I regretted the most from this trip!

2. I don't like fixed and inflexible itinerary.
I have always known that I do not like fixed and inflexible itinerary but South Korea really reminded me of this fact once again. I did not have an itinerary at all when I went to South Korea. The only thing that I had was a long list of places that I want to visit. Granted, I did not get to go to all the places due to the non-existence itinerary (ironic,eh) but I only regretted it a tiny bit. Next time, I should have a flexible itinerary, at the least!

3. Research! Research! Research!
I can't stress enough how important research is in planning your trip. Please do a lot of research before you hop on the plane to another country. I learnt my lesson in a hard way. I wasted a lot of money and time cause I did not enough research. The situation that often happened to me was like this, "Eh, A ni dekat je dengan B & C rupanya. Kalau tahu, pergi je A, B, C sekali semalam. Jimat duit. Jimat masa."


Incheon from above

4. I prefer slow travel.
Again, I have always known that I like to take my time at one place which is why I decided to spend 1 month is South Korea but 1 month is still not enough for me. I also know that I easily get overwhelmed by new and unfamiliar things, which is another reason why I prefer slow travel. I need time to soak the unfamiliarity and to enjoy it. 

5. There is still kindness in this cruel word.
I read a lot of blogposts mentioning how Koreans can be unfriendly, unwelcoming, and sometimes racist towards South East Asians and Muslims. But, I think I was lucky cause I met a lot of nice and helpful Koreans during my trip. So many people helped me - young & old, even though we do not speak the same language. I really felt this thing when I fell down and hurt myself in Busan. So many people helped me and were very concerned about me. I was truly touched by the kindness of Busanites. 

6. Set a theme for the trip.
I think having a theme for a trip to South Korea will definitely make your life easier as South Korea has so many things to offer. As for me, I did not have a set theme so I did a bit of everything and eventually felt so worn out by the end of my trip. It also left me so much to be desired as I felt I did not get to do all things that I originally planned. I tried to apply this on my recent long layover at South Korea and it worked wonders. On my recent long layover, my theme was about music. I attended Sweet Sorrow's concerts and got to enjoy busking scene at Hongdae. In fact, I did get to do few stuffs that originally were not on my plan.

7. Knowing few local phrases will definitely get you a long way.
I am so thankful for all the hours I spent on listening to K-music and watching K-dramas because they helped me a lot during my trip. I often used English whenever I communicated with the locals but I did communicate with some of them in Hangul whenever they had trouble in understanding me. I obviously used the basic phrases that I picked up from the dramas - nothing fancy, but you should see the reactions from the locals. It was priceless. Another example is I got a better treatment from a housekeeper Imu-nim (이모님). At first, she did not want to entertain my requests and kept repeating, "No English. No English" but once I asked her in Hangul, she replied me and fulfilled all my requests.

Farah at the LINE Store, Itaewon

8. Trust your instinct - sometimes.
I usually do not trust my instinct cause I know I can be somewhat dramatic and over imaginative but I learnt sometimes I need to trust my instinct. It will save me from a lot of hassle and trouble. For instance, I had a hunch not to reload my T-money with X amount but I ignored the hunch. Consequently, I lost my T-money with 70,000 ₩ in it after a week. To put in context, I lost almost MYR 300 just like that. Another instance, I got a hunch to reload my T-money with 5000₩ but again, I ignored it. I put 20,000₩ and lost the card after one trip. That was MYR 75 flew away just like that.

9. Make sure you are fit enough.
I had a trouble with my fitness when I first landed at South Korea. I walked too slow and I panted whenever I need to take stairs or walk the hilly roads. Do you know how many stairs - subway stairs especially, that I need to tackle and how many hilly roads that I need to walk for the whole trip? A. LOT. But then, I can't blame anyone else except myself cause I lived such a sedentary life for a good 5 months T__T.

10. South Korea is a safe and solo-friendly country - at most parts
I think most people know and acknowledge that South Korea is very safe for solo travelers - female solo travelers included. It is also solo-friendly - at most parts. You can see from the endless walking tours catered for solo travelers offered at big cities. However, do not some of the places are not solo-friendly i.e. famous and busy restaurants. lol! I was denied entry to restaurants twice, once in Seoul and once in Busan just because I  was on my own. #notahappytourist

I learnt a lot more than what I listed from this trip. Most of them were lessons that I learnt in a hard way. But one thing for sure, I did not regret going to this 1-month trip! I also realized that I will never get enough of South Korea! I will definitely visit this country again if I have another chance. 💖

p.s: With this post up and running, I can finally start updating about places that I went during this trip! Can't wait to jog my memories about this trip :)
