Super Blue Blood Moon (31-1-18)

Super Blue Blood Moon (31-1-18)

Earlier at 9:29 pm there was a Super Blue Blood Moon, it was so huge and beautiful. According to the reports, this lunar phenomenon was last seen in Philippines 36 years ago.

They say it would’ve been better if you are looking at the moon with someone you love lol how I really wish. I witnessed how huge the moon was and how creepy it is. While looking at it I thought “Oh gosh Dracula has risen” πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‚

A lot of people were excited because they were expecting that the moon would be blue. I did wish it was blue because I would probably be so amazed. Whilst looking at it, I decided to play the song blue moon by Frank Sinatra but then drunk men nearby ruined the moment haha πŸ˜‘.

Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

– Frank Sinatra

Longing Heart

Longing Heart

How my heart act this way,

it beats so fast like there’s no ending.

I can’t cry nor laugh, He’s inches away from me.

Finally, I’ve met the person that bothers me.

I can hear his breathe,

I can smell his scent,

I can see his breathtaking blue eyes,

I can hear his chuckles and I can finally hear his voice.

Who would’ve thought that I’d be in this heavenly moment.

Small things that make a girl feels like in heaven.

But now you’re thousand miles away,

my heart is longing to your embrace.

Xoxo,

Korean Style Diner for Pinoy Tongue.

Korean Style Diner for Pinoy Tongue.

Korean idols are known in Southeast Asian countries as well as K-dramas and K-variety shows. I am not a huge fan of K-pop but I am a fan of Korean variety shows. They have a lot of cooking shows that keeps your mouth watering. I started watching 3 meals a day and Running man in 2016. I know I am so late considering the fact that running man has a lot to catch on. Whenever the casts of these two program starts to eat Korean cuisine makes me feel like drooling LOL πŸ™‚ I know I am not the only one.

So yesterday, I was able to visit a Korean diner with my best-friends and of course we immediately checked the menu. I am familiar with TteOkbokki, Bulgogi, Kimbab and Kimchi soup but we did not try all the dishes.

We ordered…

  • TteOkbokki

The one that we had I believe is what they call Rabokki, the combination of ramen and tteokbokki (korean rice cake).

Rabokki

I have been craving for this. It tasted a bit sweet and spicy, you can choose whether you want it to be 2x hot or more but I chose mild as I want to taste and distinguish the texture of the Korean rice cake. It has cabbage leaves, spicy sauce, hard boiled egg and sesame seeds on top. It was perfectly cooked and heaven in my mouth πŸ™‚

  • Sam gyup Kimbap

KImbap is a rice roll like sushi. It has veggies on it with pork.

Kimbap

I was excited to try this out but I was not a big fan after one bite. It tasted a bit weird and I wanted to dip it with soy sauce, maybe because my tongue is not used to but I will try to have some next time.

  • Galbi

Though the Korean diner we went to did not use a Korean beef, still it was worth it. The one we had was a marinated pork and grilled it.

And the moment of truth, my mouth was watering during the grilling time LOL it was so good though and I couldn’t get enough. It is good when the rice and galbi with hot pepper paste on top is wrapped with lettuce and eat the whole thing. Trust me, it is a bomb! πŸ™‚

Thoughts..

Hmm who doesn’t love to eat :). Regardless of some of the ingredients that were used for these delish meals aren’t originally from South Korea, I am satisfied although I did not try all their menu but there’ll be next time. I would love to try some Indian food in the future.

That’s all for now.. God bless!

Xoxo,

My first English song that I learned.

My first English song that I learned.

I’m speechless and shocked at the moment. I just don’t know what to react, whilst writing this probably you heard the breaking news that Dolores O’riordan passed away. I grew up with The Cranberries songs and Zombie was a big hit in the Philippines back in 90’s. I remember when I was just 4-5 years old the only word that I can correctly pronounced was the Zombie, and of course Dolores was admired by many including myself. My dad had cassette tapes of the cranberries before and would listen to their music everytime he’s at home. It’s totally shocking. She’s one of the favorite that never fades. I’m still amazed of her powerful voice until today.

My condolences goes out to the family and fans out there πŸ’”.

RIP Dolores. πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”

Peer Pressure. (Adult Version??)

Peer Pressure. (Adult Version??)

Even you reached the age of 20’s, you still wondering what to do in your life. Ever since I turned 20, I never pressured myself to be an adult nor act like an adult. When I was in grade school or high school, no one in my school influenced me to do something or how to act being around with other people. Though, I did crazy stuff not because I was told but I am just naturally weird person that do crazy stuff at times. Thankfully, I was never been bullied or was I a bully.

I always dress appropriately but I am so comfortable with T-shirts and jeans. Recently, I was told to try to dress up a bit with exposing a little bit of skin as I am in the right age to do that where I can totally show off something which I am not so comfortable with. Of course, I want to dress up properly and nicely like everyone else BUT in the right occasions. The trouble is when you tried to explain yourself (even you don’t have to) to some peopleΒ  you know why and they would tease you like “you are not 16 anymore” and “should dress based on my age” or “you should enjoy being in a disco bar and get drunk”. I get that and I don’t see anything bad if you give suggestions to someone you know on how to dress up. It is actually a big help but in terms of telling how you live your life, and you keep telling them all over again that’s a NO! It is not a bad thing to enjoy life of course, but I would rather be on the beach listening to the waves at night while having a cold beer. We all have different preferences how to enjoy our lives.

347409-Ashleigh-Brilliant-Quote-The-older-you-get-the-more-important-it.jpg

Maturity comes naturally I think, it depends on what situation you are in and how you handle a situation. I cannot pretend just to be liked, if I am shy to talk to you then I would be timid, If my craziness would level up high then I would act crazy around you, If I want to fart in front of you then I would but I don’t just fart anywhereΒ ok LOL πŸ™‚ (I only fart in front to those people I love the most) I am just saying.Β  Even you get to the age where you can do anything, we should always ground ourselves and we should never forget the values that our parents taught us. It is not like being in your own shell, more likely being comfortable of who you are and what you want to be.

Closing..

Be your own kind and embrace your uniqueness. We all have in common and that is being different.

 

I know exactly what I want and who I want to be ❀

I wish. . .

I wish. . .

“I wish I can control the time,

the time when I acted silly.

I wish to see your face more,

but you went away.

I wish to kiss you more,

but you weren’t ready.

I wish I have a power,

to just be with you anytime sooner.

I wish to hold your heart,

so you could hold mine that is waiting.

I wish I can ease the pain easily,

just let me be.”

Xoxo,

Angel Lou
