[REVIEW] Here’s 5 Reasons Why Spending 24 hours binge-watching K-drama Goblin was worth it

“It’s a beautiful life
Beautiful day
너의 기억에서 내가 살텐데”


So finally with all the time in the world I have since I am on break hitting pause, I spent 24hours (2 days excluding sleep time) to catch up and watch Goblin.

The last K-drama I watched was Doctors? Descendants of the Sun? Cheese in the Trap? The internet was raving that Goblin was a must watch! a hit! superb! cannot miss! show so I was quite skeptical. Now, not many shows made it to my superb K-drama list but after going through a 24 hours Goblin marathon, I saw where the lure was.

Better late than never, here’s five reasons why this show proved that it was worth the binge.

[THOUGHTS] I’m not a quitter, I’m just hitting pause

After working for a solid 18 months after graduation,
I quit.
Or should I say, hit the pause button.
I’ve officially left my full-time job and am now on the dark side of “unemployment”.
It’s not a sudden decision and many factors were pushing for this decision.
I never realised I was such a workaholic. Till today, while resting, I received notifications saying that I was removed as Facebook admin and my work email access has been revoked.
Eyes swelled up. I cried.

[THOUGHTS] It sucks to lose your grandparents as a young adult

Psalm 23 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

P.S- Not religious but this verse from the bible was on my Popo’s obituary, it stuck with me and gave me peace.

Happy Birthday 👄

DSC01430On January 19th, Martin Luthur King Day, Happy 23rd to the boyfriend! I love you!

We had an awesome staycation last weekend, going around DC having the best food/ relaxation trip ever.

He enjoyed all the attention he got, starting from the free champagne/ macarons that Hotel Palomar pampered him with, and then to Le Diplomat getting free super good and soft nougats as a make shift cake, then to Fiola Mare where we were pampered with some delish sweet treats. THAT WAS ULTIMATE YUMMEH ALL WEEKEND LONG. He kept looking at his facebook too, and whined “nobody is wishing me a happy birthday”  👊 What an attention whore lol 💏, but I guess that makes us the same because I had compliments for my dress and make up that day too which made me really happy. *happy dance* We had a few consecutive good nights of enjoyment, which was all a good battery recharge for our hectic lives.

So here is a quick #ootd and #makeupoftheday post. I found out almost all pictures were tad blurry, that made me really upset 😞 Found one selfie with khiara, my friendly MUA from Sephora that is not that was able to see the beautiful make up done! She was busy though so my make up was done by Yasminda and Cynthia. Thanks girls for making me beautiful!
