Idolising The K-Pop (Kpop 우상을 숭 배해요)

Yup, I am definitely on the bandwagon. Year 2012 is probably the biggest year for K-POP considering how PSY - Gangnam Style Song becomes the most watch MV on Youtube over 1 billion million views and counting in 5 months.

Tokyo Japan Tour

Tokyo is a high density metropolitan city with some interesting cultures. My next solo trip after Seoul, one of the few remaining modern Asian country I haven't visited.

#New #Year #2015, Bye #2014

I don't think I have much great things happened for me in 2014. I really feel times fly fast, really just pass me by. Time is really the prove of our existence. Otherwise, we are nothing.

Let's get some points straight for the year.

1st #SNSD down to 8 member. As expected, they are starting to break up. Eventually, probably no more SNSD as I predicted from their songs and advancing age. They do try new concept for their songs, but still can't be as good as the previous years in my opinion.  KPOP starts to get less follow up from me as well.

2nd #Cisco skills upgrading. Another busy year at work couple with my colleague migrated to Aussie. Most of the time spent learning and acquiring new Cisco knowledge or skills. Target to upgrade my certifications in 2015.



3rd #Coffee addiction is growing much stronger. In the past 2 years, there has been a burst of these cafe selling anything from  10-13 bucks cup of coffee. TBH, I can't really differentiate how good a cup of coffee is as I drink most kinds of caffeine whether the normal kopi, cham or teh tarik. But I know I always feel better after a cuppa.

4th #Cost for living rising, hence working from home more to be implemented. As a roundtrip to office cost about RM 10, it is much better to stay at home and use that for money for food. Decent food now almost RM 10, can't find any economy rice in my area as well.

5th #Other things hopefully work out as well. Put more effort and get it done. Have #faith!!

Of #WorldCup, #Sony Z1, #MAS

The World Cup 2014 is well over. This WC has been quite enjoyable for me and was able to watch a number of the matches. Having many annual leaves help as I was probably off for like 6-8 days during that period. Still many days left to clear.


Germany, of course won it and is a team I kinda support since Euro 96 when Bierhoff & Co. won it in England soil. I watch all Germany matches in the World Cup as after their 4-0 win over Portugal, the way they play is really interesting. Their direct passing and ability to find space was really fascinating. Perhaps partly due to having 6-7 players playing for same club does help. But playing with 4 CBs was quite unique as well, as they manage to pull the offside trap well despite lack of pace.

#Sony Z1

Took me long enough to finally root and flash my phone. Only till version 4.4.2, a simple root method was found for the device. Even that, there is slightly a few more steps to go before I felt comfortable to flash a custom ROM since need to unlock bootloader. As usual, the contributors at XDA provide many helpful guides to tinker with your device, really thankful for them.

So now, on CM 11 based running ParanoidAndroid ROM. Feels nice, especially you can install different themes easily and your phone remain smooth. From here onwards, there is no restriction or hold back on whatever ROM to flash in future.















#MAS  Travel

MAS is probably considered very unlucky due to MH 370 and MH 17 disasters. Still I travel to Singapore on it albeit is a short trip. My colleague still prefer MAS hence, still no chance for me to have a look and feel at KLIA 2. As of now, MAS seems to be in the progress of being delisted.

Buying Cheap #KPOP Music CDs in Seoul Korea

#SNSD #T-ARA #GirlsDay #KPOP



Many years back I always been buying books for reading. And once, I mention in the blog, I rather buy books than music CDs. Back then, I never own one until 2011 when I got hook on KPOP. Now, I stop buying books and bought a number of Kpop CDs instead.

As the CDs are still expensive in Malaysia, double the price you can get in Korea. Even getting from online shop cost almost as much.So, most of time I try to ask my friends to help me buy whenever I detected them going to Seoul, Korea.

This is the shop which I request my friends to help me to buy when they are there. Its convenient since most self guided tours will take subway to Myeondong. And its located on the exit to Myeondong shops as well.

Based on my trip to Seoul before, the music CDs prices varies across the different shops/areas and so far this one is of the more cheaper available.

And now, the easy guide:

1. Get to Myeong-Dong station by subway. Look for  EXIT 5 & 6. You will see 3 rows of shop lots lining in front of you [Myeng-Dong Underground mall]

2. Walk a few more meters in front and you will see the shop on your left.
