75TH Reukin Day: Taco Loco Mexican Restaurant

June 26, 2016

When our monthsary comes, I'm always excited it's because I can eat yummy foods again, even if it's not our monthsary we usually eat delicious foods. Unlike the other couple doesn't celebrate much or celebrate while on travel. Our way of celebration is through our stomach. I love foods very much, but it doesn't show on my body. HAHAHA ^_^. It was my request to my husband that even though we don't have a gift for each other, we must celebrate our monthsary outside the house. ejeje

I love tacos, and these Mexican food are new to me since I always love Korean and Japanese foods. I found Mexican foods more on spices, sauce and lots of tacos and it's delicious. I'm not choosy when it comes to foods, so I can't judge how my taste different to others. Try for yourself. ^_^

Beating the Block

You know how it goes; some weeks you’re spilling over with ideas and then others… meh, you’re running on empty.  Inspiration is a fickle thing; you can’t bottle it and it comes and goes like the family cat – on top of you one minute, then off prowling the neighbourhood the next.  Blogger’s Block – just like writer’s block – is tough!  It can make you feel emotionally and creatively constipated and damn it, there’s just no magic, cure-all to get things moving again.  In a word, it sucks.

My Reviews:

It's been 2 years since I'm done watching this kdrama Empress Ki. But even years had passed I can still remember the story. This is one of my favorite Korean drama of all time. Being in a higher position to rule the whole nation is not easy. Character, techniques, intelligent and with the heart to the people is a must. A great woman in the past is very rare to find this is why most of the great women before are now in history because of high impact that they import to the nation.

My Reviews:

This korean drama is worth watching. My curiosity about how an empire rule before even not just korean history but all around the world. This kdrama shows about life, love, palace and politics. If love strikes even for a King, he would willing to sacrifice his crown to save his woman and family. Sometimes having great power is not good because it will cause chaos and unjust judgment for life.  Even in the past, dirty works in politics is already there. As what the poem says " It's not the birthright that holds a power it mattered with a heart".

Jealousy And Sadness

June 9, 2016

Every time I opened my facebook and twitter and saw those friend of mine jubilant, traveling with their loved ones make me jealous and sad.  I also want that happiness to be felt with mine and with my family. I can only imagine things for myself and family. There is no point of arguing myself, but this feeling makes me cry. I can't do anything for my family and loved ones no matter how I try. Including now seeing my grandmother suffering from her illness and can't move in her bed. It makes me sad thinking that I can't bring her there what we build. I want to show to my family the house that my King bought for our future. But I can't do it in this kind of situation right now. No one will blame; only the time is so short. If only I have powers to do things that make my family happy. 

I am full of jealousy even though some people can see that I have more than anything, but they are wrong. I'm happy but bittersweet sometimes. It took some magical spell for me to laugh or feel joy. No matter how I try, I think this is only my luck in this life. Being alive in this world is difficult. More than anything life is unfair. I experienced happiness but more often is thinking of what I've been and what did I do with my life. Why am like this, I can only stare my laptop, keyboard and window thinking all the things I want to achieve. Sometimes it's difficult to breathe when people are underestimating my freedom to express what I believe in. Being always in this kind of situation make me want to be silent and never argue to anyone. I know they are more knowledgeable than me, but please respect me as I respect yours. Changing myself is what I also want including my style, appearances, etc. but I'm afraid being judged. I better to stay silent in my square room and think of better things to do without comparing myself to others.

I felt sad, sorrowful. I was thinking things so fast for our future like we built our house as soon as possible. Buy things for our home, pay bills and soon after if things work out and we have a lot of savings we can travel. I'm stingy and think more about the future than the present. Spend money when you are left with nothing it's not for me. It's better to save now for the future and spend later when there is more. Just the ants, they save foods before the drought is coming and I was like an Ant. In some ways, most people think of enjoying their youth spending time traveling than saving believing that you can never get back your youth without enjoying it. For me, it's better to save now as long as I'm young and healthy than saving when I get old and become miserable when the time comes and left nothing. Saving money when you are old is difficult than when you start saving when you're young. There's an age limit for everything by abiding the law of humanity. I knew how difficult life is because I've been to a less fortunate family. We've been struggling every day in or life before but thankful to my mother she knows how to budget the small amount of my father's salary. It was the key and my inspiration to strive more.

But times is inevitable when there are things that are not coming on your way. I can only see through those situations that I'm now and maybe let it be as the waterfalls couldn't stop as it flows. I can only complain, but I can't do anything. Sometimes I can think of why they have it all and I can only have this. Why they can go there and why I/we can't go there. Lack of money makes things difficult. I hate that money was invented because it only shows the living status of every family in the society. Life is full different emotions; we can say that we are a living creature when we felt those what they called emotions. I may be full of jealousy and sad, but I will not do things bad just to acquire what others have. I will be quietly observing and make the right choice. Wait until it's my time; because life is like wheels, it will turn our life upside down.

Reward After Declutter

June 6, 2016

After a period of hours decluttering our room and my king's office.  I'm overwhelmed that we clean our stuff together while listening to music and me singing with a tone deaf voice. He used to tease my voice as always. My king was laughing at me and said it will rain. We are already married so he must have to be understanding with my voice. HAHAHA.

We reward ourselves with a dinner at Gangnam Korean Cafe and restaurant. The whole day decluttering our mess stuff is very tiring, but after cleaning a fresh air will surround the area. Have you felt it? When you clean your room, and you can see that all things are organized you feel good about it, that's what we feel.  I don't like to stay in a room where all things are in a mess. It's suffocating me or even see those pile of used clothes makes me want to wash it every day. Since back then I like to finish all the household chores before doing anything like watching anime and another kind of things. In some way, cleaning our room is my way of killing time since my king won't allow me to work even online jobs. He won't allow me to be stressed out with my job as he knew before, that If I had a work especially, online jobs he was aware that I won't sleep just to finish my task. He doesn't like that; especially I'm preparing myself to carry a baby if God's Will. I'm not used to staying in my room without doing something. I'm a workaholic type of person ever since, but after my marriage it's changed, and I'm adjusting to my new routine now.
