The Kiss,and The Elephant Man.



This beautiful morning,
as i'm sipping my morning tea,
TV is on, and i'm catching up with some morning shows,
i was watching the Oprah Show, 
it's about father-daughter "LOVE" relationship,
Kathryn Harrison is the guest,
and she talked about her book, 'THE KISS- A Memoir'
A memoir of her incestuous relationship with her own-blood father.
Here's some excerpts on the book .
Kathryn is the second guest on Oprah Show to talk about their horrible memoir,
the first one as i recall, was Mackenzie Phillips
whom she spilled everything about her and 
her decade of sex with her father, 
and her horrible memories of life when she's younger.




Oprah Show ended, and i flipped through the channels,
when something on Nat Geo captured me,
The Elephant Man was the segment.
i was in 'AWW' and the ending anyhow,really touches me.
The Elephant Man; Life of Joseph Merrick.
Here's a beautiful poet that he often use in his lifetime.
Be thankful and appreciate God's creatures.
There's something to learn in everything that GOD created.

Tis true my form is something odd,


But blaming me is blaming God;

  Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.


If I could reach from pole to pole

Or grasp the ocean with a span,
I would be measured by the soul;
The mind's the standard of the man.
 —poem used by Joseph Merrick to end his letters, adapted from "False Greatness" by Isaac Watts

Birdsnest Hostel in Hongdae

DISCLAIMER: BIRDSNEST HOSTEL HAS MOVED TO A NEW PLACE UNDER THE NAME OF 'THIS IS.. GUESTHOUSE'. THE NEW LOCATION IS JUST CLOSE BY. DROP BY ANY QUESTION.

It's May already. Been couple of months since my trip to Korea,  and I've been missing that country ever since.  Ahh,I need to go there again and stay longer and explore more! ^_^

So this post is gonna be about the Birdsnest Hostel,  that I stayed while I'm in Seoul.  It's my second hostel after Namu GH.
Owned and run by Mr DongUk Lee. It's a hostel that he just set up after coming back from his RTW trip.
We first arrived at the hostel without any reservation,on one cold day.. Luckily, DongUk  attended us. We asked whether any rooms available and he said yes.
Later he lead us to our dorm room.



We opted for the mixed dorm, 18000 won per person/night after 10% winter-discount. However, he told us to stay in the female dorm,with the same price. Thanks! Usually female only dorm a bit pricy,but he's so nice to let us.

Going to YG Entertainment Building

What a trip to Seoul,South Korea without ever going to see   THE YG Entertainment HQ building for the YG stans?  Be it VIP,LUCKY 7 or BLACKJACK (just naming some),  even seeing the building itself brings joy & excitement to us,right?  Let alone being lucky enough to see the stars up close :D
Going to YG building almost becoming my daily routine,tehee.
*no, i'm not a sasaeng fans*  It's hard not to when you know where it is. Because,it's like,  "this is my only chance to see and experience the awesomeness first hand". Actually I had tried walking from Hongdae to Hapjeong too.  It's not too far though, yes, I did reached YG Building, but it's time & energy consuming. ^^  Best to go by subway or bus, or better taxi.  Haven't tried going by bus or taxi,just subway.  So,here it is.
Take subway Line 2 (Green). Off at Hapjeong Station, exit 8. It's about 5-10minutes from the station,depends on your pace. Hehe,like mine,I bet yours will be as lig…

If you happen to be accepted into UiTM Machang Campus,ahah! Then again,i welcome you! Allow me to simply explain about this campus.
UiTM Machang Campus is my current Uni.well actually it WAS my campus while i was doing my Diploma in Accountancy several years ago. After graduating, i was again accepted to further my study at this campus. ^^

It has been wonderful several years for me. Even though the campus is located quite far away from civilization, but that's the special thing about it! When i stated quite far,please do not expect anything like fast food restaurants or shopping mall or even supermarket. The most we have near the campus is 7-Eleven!! (^_~)
