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.

Buying Cheap #KPOP Music CDs in Seoul Korea

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.

A Short 2013

It's time for that summary again. In short, I don't feel like writing anymore. Suppose to be a good year, but it didn't turn out as good as expected. Seems like a bit hard to recall any noteworthy highlights as seems most to be work related.

Gadget Of The Year

1st- 1st tablet, Nexus 10, got it for some lazy days browsing on the bed. Mostly use for Flipboard, some videos and now, Clash of Clans whenever have time.


2nd-  Changed phone after continuously 'beh tahan' following updates of new phone models.. Used the DHD for almost 3 years. Now on Sony Xperia Z1 as I prefer more squarish phone with solid design and feel.

Change Of The Year

1st- Job changed, back to zero more like it as restructuring cause me back to my old profession of technical implementation. Its quite boring actually. And tiring..

2nd- SAF retired from MU. Hence, it seems the rot for MU begins under Moyes. Hope we won't take too long to come back to the top..

ps: of coz, PRU 13, but no change happen...zzzz. No hope for the country.

Highlight Of The Year

1st- No 2013 annual leaves taken for the year 2013. That's 25 days AL.  Only used 8 days leave carry forward from 2012. Haha...I don't really know what I did in 2013. Working for what...totally forgot take leave. So I will carry forward 13 days offifically and another 12 'under table'. 


 
2nd- Another from work I guess, first time go oversea for project deployment or rather migration. In Thailand, after so many years..haha. So many things from work really kinda boring...and I miss out getting extra allowance scheme..sigh. :(



Girl Group Of The Year


1st- Girl's Day, only 4 member, but been hardworking lately, with few comebacks. New single this year 'Something' is the most attractive so far. Looking forward more on Sojin and Yura.
 

2nd- Nine Muses, currently considered close top favourite replacing SNSD. They've been aggressively promoting last few months of the year. Similiar to SNSD they have 9 members, and all of them are considered to have model physique. Still lacking on singing part.


I think 2014 will be another busy year at work also. Time will fly fast, wonder enough time to relax or not. Still like so many things need to do.

I recall an old saying which seems applicable for the state of our country... '有 国才有家' .
