My Songs of March 2018

March has always been a special month to me and I want it to stay that way. So, I told myself to be happier and more positive for most part of the month at the beginning of this March. I can reluctantly say that I managed to do just that. And these songs will definitely remind me of this joyful March! :)

MeloMance (멜로망스) - Gift (선물)

I listened to this song for the first time few months ago but did not really put attention to it because I was struggling with my life, remember? Decided to listen to it again after I heard it became a sudden hit in South Korea. Oh boy, did I feel happy that I gave this song another chance because this song is beautiful! :)

Yun DDan DDan (윤딴딴) - Walking In The Winter (겨울을 걷는다)

Yun DDan DDan was my greatest discovery of this March! I was so happy, crazily happy as a matter of fact, to stumble upon this talented guy thanks to YouTube suggestion! This performance and Walking In The Winter were the first performance and the first song that made me addicted to this greatness that is Yun DDan DDan. I haven't stop listening to him since the first day I discovered him.

J_ust (그 냥) & Yun DDan DDan (윤딴딴) - Summer Flower (여름꽃)

Of course it has to be another Yun DDan DDan's song, right? Fell in love with this song right off the bat as the lyrics is so sweeeeeeeet and the melody sounds so happy! :D

Bonus: Have to put this solo performance of Summer Flower by Yun DDan DDan because why not? Hahaha :D

Mii Sushi & BBQ, Canmore

Went to the Town of Canmore last month on one of my days off. Initial plan was to go to the Shopper's Drug Mart and different grocery stores and to explore a lil bit of the town. However, I had to tweak the plan as it was snowing heavily out of sudden. The sudden snow led me to eating out for lunch at one of the restaurants in town instead of cooking my own lunch, as I missed my bus and had to wait for another 2 hours for the next bus.

Mii Sushi & BBQ, Canmore

As I was craving for Asian food, I chose to have my lunch at Mii Sushi & BBQ. Mii Sushi & BBQ is one of the Asian restaurants in Canmore that is highly rated and has many good reviews online. Honestly, that was only a secondary reason why I chose to have my lunch at Mii Sushi & BBQ. My main reason to have my lunch at Mii Sushi & BBQ was it was the only Asian restaurant that opened at that time. lol! 

Mii Sushi & BBQ, Canmore

The restaurant looked very very plain outside that I actually had a small doubt about my decision to have lunch here. However, I had learnt my lesson of do not judge a book by its cover numerous time before so I decided to power through with my decision. Surprisingly, the interior of the restaurant was quite cozy and comfortable. In fact, it was one of the spacious Asian restaurants that I have ever been in Alberta. I was seated at the corner of the restaurant as I came alone (boooo!) but honestly, it was okay. I had my much needed privacy.

Spicy Stir Fried Squid (오징어볶음)
CAD 27 plus taxes

I ordered spicy stir fried squid (오징어볶음) like I always do whenever I crave for something Korean. The server told me that the spicy stir fried squid was quite spicy but it was not that spicy for me. It was perfect for my liking. As for the portion, I found it to be quite big for one person. I actually took my sweet time to finish off my spicy stir fried squid.

Price wise, this spicy stir fried squid was definitely the most expensive spicy stir fried squid that I have ever had in my life.  I believe other dishes on the menu also lean more to the expensive side in comparison to other Asian restaurants that I have ever been. Nonetheless, I had to say that it was also the heartiest spicy stir fried squid that I ever had. Aside of squids, they put tteok, mushrooms, and a lot of other veggies (which I found too much for my liking, haha!) Definitely the only restaurant that put too much other ingredients in its spicy stir fried squid.

I don't think I will be coming back to Mii Sushi & BBQ for this spicy stir fried squid or for other dishes in their menu but that is because I'm trying to cut down my monthly expenses. There's nothing wrong with Mii Sushi & BBQ. I think they are as good as you can get in tourist town. They serve fulfilling dishes that worth the price tags. It just I can't afford to dine out especially when the price for a meal is more than CAD 30.

Should I Stay or Should I Leave?

I have been out of touch with blogging world for almost a month. I did not get to visit any other blogs and did not manage to update my own blog. Those two posts that were posted on February that you may have read were scheduled posts. My absence was mainly because I was struggling to figure out the best way for me to move forward with my life. 

Should I stay or should I leave?

Those who follow me on my Twitter must have noticed that I have been almost in agony in deciding  few things. I have been asking myself whether I should stay in Canada or not. I have been feeling too homesick for the past month that all I wanted was to fly back to Malaysia. However, once the feeling went away, I think I'm actually okay with the fact of me staying in Canada, for now.

I also have been asking myself whether I should stick with my job or not. My job has been okay, pretty much autonomous at most times but I did get "I had enough" feeling few times, especially when I had a rough night. Honestly, I want to keep working at my current position for at least a year (6 more months to go!) but I don't know if my heart can take all the bruises anymore. We shall see, shan't we?

I'm also thinking about moving to another city or town. I have been eyeing Calgary as my next destination. However, I'm also thinking of Jasper as an option. Still not sure where I'm heading next but all I can hope is it will be the best decision. Banff has been nothing but great but I'm not feeling it. I'm not sure if winter makes me feel that way but that's how I feel.

Enough with my life dilemmas. Her Little Guilty Pleasures is supposed to be my happy space and those dilemmas surely do not scream happy. They are not supposed to be in this space but I think the future me deserve an explanation why did I disappear from blogging world last month.

What can you expect from Her Little Guilty Pleasures this March?

Moving forward, you shall see more updates about my trip to South Korea yang dah lapuk dek zaman tu. I'm most likely will put pictures and things that I still remember about the places that I visited. They are most probably will be short as I'm feeling lazy lately. And please expect more reviews (more to rambles, honestly) on Korean dramas and Korean movies. lol!

Anyway, thank you for still dropping by to this humbly blog of mine. I truly appreciate it. I will try my best to catch up with all of your updates :)

Till then, be happy ^^
