Bada unni, why are you so perfect??

Hi guys, welcome back!

So last night, I was watching YouTube (as per usual) and I found that KBSWorld had posted the recent “Immortal Song 2” episode, fully subbed in English. Despite my initial intentions to watch it due to EXO’s appearance on the show (I can’t lie but they seriously were the reason why I clicked on it ><), I was more amazed by another artist’s performance – Bada’s (바다) performance on the song “불티 (Sparks)”.

The performance was A-MA-ZING! You have to watch it, seriously!

Hi everyone! First up, I have to explain to you right now that this post has been written days before it has been posted. I had typed this straight after my internet at home had disconnected, and took DAYS to fix (stupid technicians ><’) I’ve had to literally do everything at uni because there is no way that it would be possible for me to upload any assessments at home (duh!) And on a final note, my laptop weighs like a TON! ><

Day 19 & Day 20: my life just sucks…CLEARLY!

Day 19: Post a photo of you in the last item of clothing you bought.

My sister said that the photo looked perverted...does it?

Love this little detail on the sleeves :)

Love this little detail on the sleeves 🙂

Alright I bought this at Paper Scissors before uni holidays started (i.e. AGES AGO!!!) I haven’t gone shopping for clothes for AGES…this means something >< And just to let you guys know, I have a HUGE liking for stripes…and pokka dots…I’m being really kiddy, aren’t I (is that even a word? *raises eyebrow*)


Day 20: Where would you like to visit or live one day?

Beautiful, just beautiful >//<

Beautiful, just beautiful >//<

I wanna go, I wanna go!

I wanna go, I wanna go!

For me, I would love to visit Seoul one day and I plan to stay there for a long time ONLY because I want to travel across South Korea. South Korea was the beginning of my love for K-pop(durrr!) and encouraged me to become more engaged with my Asian roots. Due to the influence of South Korea upon me, I know want to learn different Asian languages and I do hope that one day I can study in Asia or something…even travelling across Asia will do I guess…

There are plenty more places that I would want to visit in the future as well. Paris, New York, The Caribbean, Tahiti, Madagascar, New Caledonia, Spain (for the hunks of course >///<) and plenty more. Gosh, just let me travel across the globe, PLEASE!


Okay, so I hope ya’ll enjoyed this post. I apologise once again that I didn’t do yesterday’s post. Work was hectic (as per usual) and so I just didn’t have the strength or time to post it up. Tomorrow will still continue as per normal so don’t worry about it! And I still need to think of this week’s photo challenge entry…really stuck ><

Anyway, love you guys and I’ll talk to you soon~~

Day 4: HOW COULD YOU ASK ME SUCH A QUESTION?! You sly dog, you…

Day 4: Who or what can’t you live without? Explain why.

Hello~~~ Welcome back to day no. 4! Today’s challenge is a really hard one. I have a couple of things/people who mean the world to me but it’s just so hard to cram it all down to one thing (lol duh?) so, I’m going to be really naughty and kinda make a list cause it is just too much torture to try and answer this question with only one answer.

Because, obviously, not everything is black and white, right?


1. My lovely family

(Not showing a photo of them here – personal reasons, sorry!)

This must be a given. Of course, without them, I wouldn’t be the person that I am today. My beautiful, loving and caring family have always been there for me when I ever need support. I mean, what else could you wish for?

My father passed away in 2010 when I was only 15 years old. I guess this age is a really tough time because I’m old enough to remember, but just not old enough to forget. And I don’t mean that I want to forget it’s just…there are just moments that I wish I could but yet can’t. Since his passing, I’ve come to realised how much my family truly means to me, and I have lived on from that time since in this manner.

I truly believed at the time that I couldn’t live without him. He was my own blood-related father – the one who gave me my life today. I will go on never forgetting that, and I am truly, truly grateful to him for all he has done for my life up until that time period. Ahhh geez, my keyboard is becoming soaked…give me a sec while I wipe it up with my sleeve (gross, I know).

And so, thank you to my wonderful family and caring father who was there when he could be. Never could I live without them, and if I couldn’t I’d rather go with them then live a day without.

2. Super Junior

Ahhhh, my oppas...<3

Ahhhh, my oppas…<3

I have been a E.L.F ever since 2009 and rather than consider myself a fan, I feel as if I’m part of an extended family which stretches all across the globe and back. We as a community really are  amazing, I believe. Any person who is able to send this amount of love to someone/some people who they may have never seen before in real life, I think, are capable of anything. I myself have never seen Super Junior live before my eyes. We Australians had a chance before last year, but the concert got cancelled almost a fortnight prior.

Many of us were devastated (as we should be!) but I took a more positive outlook and told myself that maybe it just wasn’t the right moment yet. As the dedicated fans we are, we will continue to wait for them all and if I really, really become too impatient then, once I am capable, I’ll go out and find them myself (LOL)

All of them have given my life more shine, more warmth and more laughter. As you already know, I’ve been through  a couple of rough patches in my life and it was through Super Junior that I became someone who began to smile and appreciate the life that I have now. I almost believe that they were a gift from my father himself, as real living guardian angels who were capable of making a bad day, a good one instead. And so, they are another aspect of my life that I can’t possibly live without.

3. Youtube, Facebook, WordPress blah, blah, blah, yadda yadda (LOL)

Social truly is a matter of life and death LOL

Social media…it truly is a matter of life and death LOL

Okay, before you all misunderstand, what I really mean by this title is the fact that through these sites (I guess you could call them social-media…) that I had discovered friends and people who enjoy stuff that I love! Through Facebook, I was able to find friends who I had lost contact with for years and now, we act as if we had spent our whole entire lives together, side by side. Through YouTube, I discovered Super Junior, Kpop, Cryaotic, Clothesencounters and all of these different cultures who had so much to share in order for me to discover. Through WordPress, I was able to read, read and just READ on and on about some amazing people who have pretty amazing lives in comparison to mine. And I enjoyed doing that, a lot.

But especially through YouTube, I was able to discover so many people with passions of their own, and just wanted to share with everyone what they loved doing whether this was fashion, beauty, gaming, pop culture, music etc. I just loved watching them, and I honestly spend HOURS every day watching them. I always anticipate what I could find in my subscription box every morning. Some I must watch right then and there; others are always on my ‘watch later’ playlist. My love for YouTube will probably never die… I believe, eventually, that I will die before it will ><

So, this is probably a pretty good summary of what I can’t live without at this moment in time. There are plenty more but then the list will just never stop. Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this, and got to understand my tastes/life/likings just a tad bit more. As always, hope to talk to you all very soon~~
