Disco co co!

I'm not very aware of any other Jpop artist than Johnny's. This week I've watched all Himitsu No Arashi-chan episodes that I missed last year. From all of Arashi shows HnA is my fave :D They have so many segments and VIP room is one of my favorite because they asked their guest what's their impressions in each Arashi member, I always wait that part because it's the funniest I guess especially how they edit the video clips that match what their guest said. Naka Riisa's impression is my favorite as of now :D

Dukbokki & Banana Ooyoo

So last Monday my sister and I went grocery shopping at Zion market because we miss going there and have free food taste :D.. But because it was Monday we didn't see many free food taste stands so we just went and buy stuff we need for making ramen and dukbokki. And bought tons of Yakult rip off because it's cheaper than Yakult and it taste the same. And discovered this Banana Milk that I always see kid drinking in many dramas that I've watched. Grabbed one just to taste it.. and it does taste good! It has the same flavor of one candy that I use to eat in my home country.. I can't remember what it is.

Nino hangover

Ninomiya Kazunari- Niji
Seeing Nino made me go back to my arashi fangirl. I never really spoken about my love for Jpop here in my blog because it's not as big as Kpop. I started opening up to Jpop only because of Matsujun and Nishikido Ryo.. then as I watch Arashi variety shows, interviews... I fell for Nino because he's so funny and I have a fetish for his slouchy shoulders.. weird huh? usually people don't like it but when I saw him walking with his slouchy shoulders in Ryusei No Kizuna.. waaah! I saw sparks haha... I still can't imagine I saw him with my own eyes, I always dream that we will meet in the streets of Los Angeles while he's being a tourist here and me as a normal bystander.. it would've been nice if I met him like that.. and creepy because that just mean that my dream really happened.

I'm not a fan of Nino's voice.. but I learn to appreciate it because it's not something you always here, when you hear Arashi, News or any Johnny's or Jpop group you'll know that it is Jpop. The girl that I met last Thursday told me why she like Jpop and not Kpop.. because they stick to their concept.. they don't change for the sake of being with the flow. That's what separate them from Kpop or Cpop or whatever pop. hahaha.

I don't think I'm still in a state where I want a carbon copy of him as a husband. I want a friend like him maybe? and I have a one-sided love for him hahaha! I'm already creating my own fanfic with him in mind.. waah! where we end up as being friends and him not knowing about my feelings. kekekeke.. corny yssa.

I remember being all giddy when I found out that he was on the same drama with Ryo-chan. I'm more of a Ryo fan but because in that drama Nino looks so suave (attire, hairstyle, the way he walks) I transfer my ship.. because Ryo's hair there is not really...good. And did I tell that my family and my cousins fell also for him because of Yamada Taro Monogatari?haaays.. I wanna see more Nino-centered videos.. let me stop here and hunt for more :D

Seungri's 1st Mini Album

To tell you the truth Seungri is my least favorite member of Big Bang. Yes he's funny.. but he's egoistic mind kinda turned me off.. So I wasn't really expecting on his album release, I'm not also a fan of his voice or his face... it's not that his bad.. it's just that in Big Bang, I don't notice him so much.. But hearing all his song in his latest album I find myself liking everything about it, my head bobbing to every beat.. to tell you the truth I like this VVIP album as a whole than GDTOP's album, but I still love "Oh Yeah" above all the songs from Seungri's album.. hahaha.. it's more like this 12<7.. Anyway in this album.. I don't know which one is my favorite.. maybe his duet with IU?.. not really.. I like them all but not like how I'm with "Oh Yeah"

I just got home from watching Gantz at Regals... I guess watching it with people who has a lot of comments made it more interesting :D really! Me and my brother can't help but crack up with their side comments. Let's talk about the movie.... I know this movie is more of a serious movie but I keep smiling here and there... because.. Nino portraying Kei was so funny (in a very good way)... I can still see Nino while watching him. And I'm happy they did cut some unnecessary parts and focus more on the fighting scenes (if you wanna call it that).. I still get irritated though when they stare too much to their target instead of killing it, but I guess that's the whole point of ordinary-people-turn-into-superhero plot. And I am really disappointed with the dubbing.. but I expect it to happen already so it really didn't bother me that much.. it would've been way better hearing how Japanese screams :) it adds so much emotion into it!... and Nino agrees with me..and with everybody else too. I thought they would show the part where Nino was being the target inside the train station.. but I have to wait months before seeing it again.. hopefully they will show it here in America again.. and when they do.. I will surely enter the raffle =D.

Gantz tomorrow!!

I'm so excited! but do they have to dubbed it?!.. I wanna hear Ninomiya's voice! anyway.. hope it's worth my money.. I'm still thinking if I should pass by Hollywood first before going to Regals... hmmmm.. I don't know what to do!! I didn't join the raffle because I know my luck with raffles.. so I choose to watch it without gambling... I'm still curious if I need to be early in the theaters or not... hmmmmmm....

[SS4] Trace Your Verse

I know I haven't updated much on my Sunday School 101. All the games, crafts and print outs that I've done for the past few months are all in my little handy dandy notebook. I still want to improve some of them that's why I haven't posted anything. Anyway I've been focusing more on paperworks with my students. I started making the "spot the difference" which you can also do with or without Adobe Photoshop.. just download free coloring pages and add and remove stuff from the original copy. Be creative! :D

Now since I'm handling kids who's just starting to write, Tracing is a big help for them :D I just recently found a free Trace font that you can download. You can use it for them to remember memory verse.


Justice, Mercy... Grace

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9

One of my friend explained the meaning of Justice, Mercy and Grace in our bible study at the elderly place when one of the attendees ask how would you define grace. She uses an example of a car being park on the side street.. a very expensive car, and suddenly you hit the rear of that car and the owner is just right on the side seeing the whole thing that happened.. when you handle it with justice the owner will tell you "You have to pay for the damage, because you are at fault." When it's mercy he will say "Ow, it's okay I'll let you go since your car is already old." but when it's grace he will not only say "I'll let you go since your car is already old" but he also tell you "how about I give you $50,000 and go buy yourself a new car." Grace is something that a gift that we don't deserve, and we need to accept that gift to have the grace. =)
Imagine if God said that we have to work our way to heaven.. no one will make it! Thank You Lord for paying it all for us.. thank You for Your love.. thank You that Your grace is for everybody =D

Inception hang over

Last Saturday me, my cousin and my brother watched Inception.. I was the only one out of the three who saw it already so I told myself not to spoil them... but watching it again last time felt like it's my first time seeing it.. but actually getting the idea more... When I first saw this movie I tried not to over think about it because.. it's just crazy! I wanna make my life easier. hahaha. So yea last Saturday made it more clear for me, how Inception "works".. (cause I might be still wrong.. but I think I got it) how they will change Fischer's mind.. And why the heck Cobb looked for Saito in another level.... that part is still not clear for me... Then my brother really wants to fully understand the movie that we watched it again the next day with subtitles. hahahah!... and play-pause the movie when we both get confuse.

I never thought that I will say that I enjoyed this movie because I hate watching movies where you really have to think.. I never thought there will be another complicated movie that I will want to watch after Death Note.. hahaha.

This video kinda helps you imagine the whole timing in every dream... very clever :D

and I will say I still have some questions about this movie.. but I'm done... =)

Voice of the Martyrs

One of my closest friend gave me this book for Christmas. I usually enjoy reading devotional books, last year I didn't have one to read hopefully this year I will finish this book :D it's very interesting and it's related also to the curriculum we're using for Sunday School.

I always think what will I do when I face a "real" persecution like the people in this book experienced. We have so much freedom here in America that mostly Christians tend to be lax here. It's growing process... I pray that I do grow in Him everyday. That one day I wouldn't even think about if I am gonna proclaim Him as my Lord and Savior when I am in a place that prohibits Christianity

"This book is dedicated to..
those who chose death over denial...
who chose faith over fear...
and chose to be a witness rather than walk away.
For all those whom this world was not worthy.
Hebrews 22:38
(The Voice of the Martyrs "Extreme Edition")

Fed up with dramas?

I think I am. I usually love sitting down for almost 16-24 hours to finish a k-drama but now... I don't find myself doing that anymore. I followed Marry me, Mary, Secret Garden, Sungkyunkwan Scandal and most of the dramas last year but never really have the eager to stay tune to it. I don't think it's a bad thing for me... at least I can do more stuff than just sit and watch... but I kinda wonder why? If you ask me who my K-actor crush I don't even know who to answer two reasons.. there's too many good looking K-actors and I don't really have one yet... my love for Jang Geun Suk last 09 kinda faded.. but I still admire his works.. but I haven't really dream  about being married to K-actors or K-artists.. thank goodness I'm not a crazy fangirl after all. But I do want to have a Korean boyfriend.. wahahahaha!

Right now.. I'm having fun watching Korean Variety Shows than watching dramas.. I look forward to 100 out of 100 subbed videos, Isubs Running Man videos and many more :) And I'm looking more into watching movies now.. I just recently saw Speedy Scandal, I want more movies like that! and "Ajhussi" too, it's kinda gory but I love the story. I think I really am fed up with dramas.. everything is so....predictable..

CNBlue Calendar 2011

I think there's already a pattern what from I post. Believe me, I try to avoid posting massive images in one go.. but I just can't. I don't want them to all stay in my desktop because I'll end up saving more, it's better to save it in my picassa album right? All I have for CNBlue is love, I hope this year they improve more =D I love them and all, but I wanna hear them play just like what I hear from the CD.. meaning, they don't need to manipulate sounds for their album.. it's not like they DO manipulate.. they might, they might have already, I just want them to stay away from the trend as much as possible. I really want to hear more Jonghyun for Korean album.. it looks like it's gonna be awhile before we hear them sing Korean songs again.

Clap Clap 1! Clap Clap 2!

I thank korean variety shows for giving me good ideas for games, during Christmas we played the game Yonghwa and Eunhyuk played in Dream Team where you say numbers from one to five but you have to raise a different number of fingers while saying a number. Confusing? I know.. we have to meet in order for me to explain you the mechanics.. or better watch that episode of dream team.. that's the game they played to pick which group will walk and ride in a car. The game is pretty fun.. it's really confusing, me and my three little cousins mastered it already :D I also used this game as an ice breaker in Sunday School, I think they didn't had fun with like we did during Christmas eve :D.

Song Joong Ki strolling around Sydney

Another photo spread for Song Joong Ki.  Sometimes I feel like he shouldn't do too much work.. or accept every offer he receives.. I like it more when actors or artist don't expose themselves too much in public so when they do come out with a new project you anticipate them. In Joong Ki's case.. he has too much photo shoots that I am left with choices, I don't have a hard time not paying attention to one of his work because I know another one will come.  Maybe it's not a bad thing..haha.. I complain too much huh? Why would he care with I think anyway?.. I just wanna let it out.. not just with Joong Ki but in all the actors and artist in Korea.


"I've been having dreams about loosing my father for quite some time, every time I wake up from that dream I wanna forget about it quickly.. I don't know if I can bear it, How are we gonna live?.. each day that passes the reality of death becomes more real for me. I have the assurance of where I am going after this life and it's a better place, but thinking about my parents leaving before me.. I can't even put it in my mind.. it hurts so much. God has opened my eyes to this reality during summer last year

"Our days may come to seventy years,
or eighty, if our strength endures;
yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
for they quickly pass, and we fly away. -Psalm 90:10"

Yesterday God rang the bell again and remind me of this. My dad went to the hospital yesterday to just have a check-up but when he arrived the hospital they said that they he has to stay and they have to put tube in his lungs to take the air out. We weren't with him when he went to the hospital because we have to serve at our church.. when we arrived home we heard this news and I don't know how to react about it. I always thought that my dad is exempted to have serious sickness where they needed to put tube in his body. I always thought that my that is invincible because he can endures much and he's been really there for us every time we need him, even if he's tired he never says no to us his children.. I remember him saying when I was still in high school, I get embarrassed when he drop and picks us up at school because we're to old already..we can take the bus, he said "as long as I can drive, I want to drive for my family" and he has been doing that till now. But every human has their limits, our body gets weak every year.. this world is passing away.. and so does our earthly body.  Our hope is to have that promised glorious body that we will receive in heaven and that there's no pain in sorrow and full of praising our Lord.

God has showed me how my dad cares for us, and how I should not take advantage his kindness and that I should give back to him. I stayed over with him in the emergency yesterday and just hearing him in pain while adding another tube breaks my heart. And I saw how my dad is really a good man even to other people because we know that there are so much prayer being lifted up for my dad and recovered earlier than we thought..

He still needs to go back after 5 days and check if the hole in his lungs closed. If not they have to do surgery, which he hope will not reach to that. I know there are so many prayer warriors with us so I have my confidence with our Lord. =)

Looking Back 2010

So everybody is picking their best of everything that happened last year... and I got jealous so I'm gonna do my own :D

Year End Festivals

I didn't like any of the shows (SBS, KBS, MBC) this year.. unlike last year. I enjoyed SBS Gayo Daejun. But I did do like some parts.. mostly YG of course.. hahaha. Sound system of SBS is very crappy. MBC cameraman.... don't really know who to film. KBS, I stayed because of CNBlue
