#FirstImpression: Your House Helper (당신의 하우스헬퍼) (2018)

Image
Snippet of the drama (From KBS World ) The daily life of an average working woman involves: a packed subway during the rush hours, a miserable old boss, juniors clawing their way up, mounting credit card debt, and a rusty and tired body. And above all, the worst is the endless housekeeping work that awaits her at home. But what if a handsome guy appears and takes care of all the housekeeping work for her? And not only that, what if he solves the problems in her complicated and confused life? In this drama, a male house helper does housekeeping works in different women's houses and tries to solve their issues. Credit: Here My first impression First of all, let me address few things. Was meant to write something about this drama after watching 4 episodes (or 8 episodes of 30 minutes, whichever you call it) but I was busy unpacking my stuff and exploring few places in Banff National Park so after 6 episodes, that is. Secondly, I didn't plan to pick up this dram

My Songs of July 2018

Image
July was all about me feeling ecstatic over the fact that I got to spend the first half of July with my family. Wohoooooooo! Alhamdulillah. It was also the month that I start falling in love with love again, I think? I blamed it on the lovey dovey environment that I was exposed to in Malaysia. lol! Or, maybe because it's been a while since since I last channeled the hopeless romantic in me? It also did not help as I managed to read few novel cinta yang sangat-sangat sweet dan comel? Aduhai. Anyway, these 3 songs will definitely remind me of this July. Baguslah, semua pun lagu cinta, lagu sayang yang manis sangat. Sesuai sangat dengan diri ni yang konon konon dah jatuh cinta dengan cinta? :p Inteam feat Edcoustic - Kau Ditakdirkan Untukku Aizat Amdan - Sampai Ke Hari Tua MeloMance (멜로망스) - Tale (동화)

17 Days in Malaysia

Image
My recent trip back home was the shortest yet the most expensive Canada-Malaysia-Canada trip that I ever took. Wish it didn't cost me that much though. Anyway, putting the cost aside, I think I was pretty happy with the 17 days that I spent in Malaysia. Honestly, they were not all butterflies and rainbows but okay la. Not that bad in my opinion. Things that I loved about my 17 days in Malaysia 1. Reunited with my family - It felt so good to be back to pangkuan keluarga tercinta though all of them were pretty much busy with their stuff. It was good and okay cause I'm a person yang kalau dekat asyik nak gaduh je, kalau jauh baru nak rindu-rinduan. My first meal in Malaysia! 2.  Chicken! Chicken! Chicken everywhere! - You have no idea how happy I am to see chicken everywhere! I finally got to say good bye to my pescatarian diet for a bit! Prior to my trip, I was kinda forced to be a pestacarian for almost 7 months as no halal chicken available in Banff. So,

Assalamualaikum and hi everyone! My apologies for publishing this list quite late. Too many things happened since last week that I did not have time to update this blog of mine.

A Year Ago Today

A year ago today, I got a chance to meet the complete Sweet Sorrow (스윗 소로우) at the backstage after their concert. It was a special day for me, a day that I still cherish until today, as I've been their fan since I was 18, and because it was my first and last time seeing the complete Sweet Sorrow. *mixed feelings*
