The Lord Has Gone!!

..into oblivion…not. Thanks to Skype, and not so thanks to the crappy MSN. The Lord of Dipshitness aka the boyfriend just moved to Copenhagen on the first of September. Pretty sentimental cos the day marked the start of our (then) new life in Korea, when we started the school back in 2008. And he ended his Korean life right on the same date. ah~life..
And then there were none, but me. No more trips to seoulslashgwacheon every weekend or so, no more..hm yeah, all in all the meaning of his presence in Korea was just that i got to go to Seoul every weekend without spending much for accommodation.
jk. I know he reads this stuff. Joking, My Lord!!please don’t cyber whip me with your cyber belt!

Anyway, yeah..back in Gwangju now. Ah~so hard to see a departure, especially when you’re the one left behind. Everything is so near yet so far. Remembering good times when we were living in Sinchon.  Wondering will you ever go back to Gwacheon, the city we want to live in forever (i didn’t make that up, it’s really their tagline). How the pretty cat we usually fed tuna and spam and cheese will miss us.  Oh and the band. The death metal band. How I’m so gonna miss sitting there at the club watching the gig, trying to stay awake and look like an enthusiastic fan/girlfriend. Seriously, death metal makes me sleepy.

This kinda makes me wanna sing Nelly Furtado’s why do all good things come to an end..come to an end..

To add the sentimental value, here’s a photo of us, in our romantic as per usual state:

by the look of his veins, think he really wanted to beat the crap out of me.

yeah yeah be good there, Bibi..

(and the goddamn budaejjigae *shiver* the only good thing about his leaving is that I don’t have to eat it anymore).

Flat Broke Saturday (and some videos from Java Jazz)

so i just spent a fair good amount of money for some furniture. leaving it dry in entertainment department, thus opt out to whatever it is that involving spending more money for…well..simply everything. thought having stomach flu would help me save abit, but no 😦 even after AIG reimburse the hospital fee, there would be nothing much left..ah. life is hard. especially when youre a fukin poor student insisting living on your own.

so what happened last week?
i skipped class. there was only one class, but ohmygawd how my stomach just couldnt cooperate. there was also LOD’s birthday, and at the same time, his band concert. it was before the stomach flu, so i was pretty desperate to find out the the venue?the venue, my dear maybenonexistentreaders, was noalcoholnosmoking venue. whoever had the idea should be punished by forking his pisser.

and of course Alice in Wonderland, in Imax 3D. now if you ask me, Johnny Depp didnt even look better in 3D, so why bother. The story, was of course, not the original story of Alice in Wonderland, and rather, or should i say, very shallow. for me it was more like something to see, just to enjoy the colourful images -and the kitschy Red Queen-, and for the love of goggles, dont those 3D plastic glasses just so annoyingly giving you tickles on the ears and nose. i prefer watching movies without anything keep slipping down my flat nose, thank you.

and photo session with Ju Hui. it was on Sunday, before we went to watch Alice. it was supposed to be good..you know with his super expensive new canon DSLR and all that. it was raining. dark and cold and bad mood since it was already 5 or 6 PM and we skipped one palace after palace to find one that was still open. I havent even seen the results yet. 세기 주휘야.

And of course there was the regular winter disease of LOD. He got common flu, at the very same time i got my stomach flu. Just that im almost over it, and he is still having it now. HA! this is one step closer to proving my theory that the Germans will surely be vanishing earlier, should the human race have another plague, due to their spoiled vulnerable bodies. another prove was that he got the swine flu, and i didnt, who was around when he had it. and also i can eat lots of spicy stuff. and raw veggies. and animal intestines. and shrimp tail. and i grew up with pineapple field in our backyard. whatever that means.

and just lots and lots of Castle and Dexter and soup.

so about the java jazz videos. as i said i took some timeout from keeping my dad company at the hospital to go to the largest jazz festival in..asia? or as CNN sez “Java Jazz is one of the world’s largest bebop and boogie-woogie gatherings.”
didnt get to see John Legend and Toni Braxton, but i got to see these :

more videos on my youtube channel

thats all. saturday night home alone again. with lingering nausea and furniture to assemble. and just in case youre asking, Christian is currently at Asian Metal Festival in Seoul, with his running nose and banging headache, maybe trying to headbang to an Italian metal band called Graveworm. good luck with that!i hope he blows his nose once in a while.

when the day starts with rain

there aint nothing good can happen, eh?or maybe not. well my day started just as fucked up as it can be. i was waiting just to get the hell outta here, i would kill to get some lunch 50 meters away from this shithole, but hey!just stay in the darkroom!its raining!youll get wet and shit!
damn tell me that im an adult and totally responsible for whatever is happening in my life. ive got one of the most boring vacations ever in my life, and i can totally blame myself for that. when i choose one thing, i leave out another thing, i can totally understand that, and thats my choice. so whatever happens i should be happy cos hey?i chose to do that. right?riiiight. i have no right to complain whatsoever, cos your life is your fully responsibility. right?riiight.
so this is what im gonna do. imma get dressed and get a very nice lunch and spend the day with one sole purpose : not hating the world. rain?fuck that shit.
oh and last night was windy’s farewell party. heard it was pretty cool. i must be sitting here alone staring at the monitor when all the hype went on. the story of my life. ill do better next time.

I Do Cook

and oh my its not always edible. my first attempt to cook for LOD was a uber salty fried rice with hardrock jelly pudding as dessert. next few attempts involved too much salt, overcooked, undercooked, hard pudding (again), too much salt, and too much salt. and mind you, my mum did send me to a cooking class. and pastry class. and chocolate making class. she would also send me to a wedding cake class if only i wasnt busy making my long overdue thesis.
and just now, i cooked. i was planning not to ever waste ingredients and food anymore, but under some certain circumstances, i was forced to cook my own food. tonight, i was left alone like a poor house cat left without catnip, or dog without kibbles. LOD left me with nothing to consume. i did buy KFC and rice, but excuse moi, if you know me , then you can that i’m growing. i need more food.
and so i had to cook. got shrimp and broccoli. got the recipe from the internet. not all, but hey, if you dont have seafood sauce you can always replace it with any sauce with the same colour, no?

voila! looks not that good, but it doesnt matter. taste does matter. and the taste?

you might have got it right. too very salty, bitches.

fuck it. fuck the fuckin fuckin shrimp.

in the whole different story, i was disgracefully wasted last night in front of a pair of total strangers who happened to be christian’s co-workers. or soon, ex-coworkers. it was supposed to be their mini farewell party, and ohmy i just love makkoli and couldnt hold my horses and got fukin inebriated by it in no time. shame on me.
