Friday Fun: Shinhwa – “Orange” (오렌지)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~! We have less than ten days before Christmas. I hope you’re not getting caught up in the flurry of the gift-buying season and are instead able to relax a bit this weekend and actually enjoy yourselves. 🙂

To help us usher in another weekend, I thought the men of Shinhwa could help us relax with their latest song, “Orange.”  Continue reading Friday Fun: Shinhwa – “Orange” (오렌지)

Friday Fun: Chan Yeol (찬열) and Punch (펀치) – Goblin OST 1 “Stay With Me”

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

As you may have noticed by now, Kdramaland is atwitter with the goodness that we know as Goblin, so for this week’s “Friday Fun,” I thought it only appropriate to give a nod to one of the great songs that is helping to create such wonderful delight for us. 😉 Continue reading Friday Fun: Chan Yeol (찬열) and Punch (펀치) – Goblin OST 1 “Stay With Me”

Friday Fun: Park Jin Joo


Hi, Twinkles~! It’s been a while, huh? My apologies! I’ve certainly been remiss in my blogging, huh? 🙁

Well…I was going to wait until my final exams and grades were all posted to resume blogging, but I just couldn’t resist sharing with you my newest pixie crush. 😉 Yup, it’s Park Jin Joo who stole many of our hearts in Jealousy Incarnate as the deadpan nurse who masterfully handled our recalcitrant Lee Hwa Shin. 🙂 Once you see her, I think you may just end up developing a pixie crush yourselves. 🙂

So…here’s a return to our weekly “Friday Fun” with two songs that are designed to uplift your spirits and set your feet tapping. 🙂  Continue reading Friday Fun: Park Jin Joo

Walk down Memory Lane: The Master’s Sun (2013)

MS 17.46

I can’t believe the month of October is over after today and with it, the opportunity for more walks down memory lane for 2016. 🙁

Ah well, all good things must come to an end at some time, I suppose, and there’s always next year as bittersweet as this may seem right now. On the bright side, it’ll just make us anticipate the “Walk down Memory Lane” for 2017 all the more! 😉

For our fourth and final memory for 2016’s “Walk down Memory Lane” then, I thought it only fitting that we conclude this year’s stroll through our memories with the blockbuster of 2013. 🙂 Thanks for being a part of so many wonderful memories…!

Walk down Memory Lane: Heirs (2013)


In staying with this year’s “Walk down Memory Lane” stroll through the year 2013, it seems fitting that our third memory come from Heirs and the memories associated with that show that had so much potential but failed to deliver on so many levels by its conclusion.

Incidentally, this was the first time that I blogged for DramaFever, which was a fun experience in and of itself but one I was never able to repeat due to scheduling constraints. Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: Heirs (2013)

Eye Candy of the Week: Still the Best…! :)


Happy Sunday, Twinkles~!

You’ll have to excuse me this week as I deviate from my weekly “Eye Candy” post of Baek Jin Hee and Park Seo Joon, but I think you’ll grant me this leeway once I explain why. 🙂

In honor of our original Eye Candy’s upcoming birthday–Yes, So Ji Sub is turning a glorious 3-9 this November 4th!–I thought it only appropriate that he be given some screen time with our Ms. Eye Candy 2016. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to post a celebratory blog post on the 4th. 😉 However, if I don’t, then consider this my annual nod to our original Eye Candy. 🙂

On that note, I hope you’re all ready to tackle another week! 🙂 Here’s to a fabulous week then, Twinkles! *pumps fist*

Romps in Korea: Travels of Our shl and Tabs!

Korean Vacation Nam San Tower

Annyeong, chingudeul! I’m shl, from Singapore. My daughter, Tabitha (‘Tabs’ for short) and I took a short trip to Seoul in October this year to celebrate the end of her Primary 6 examinations (these are a very BIG DEAL in Singapore), and Snoopy’s Twinkie has kindly invited me to share our experiences on her blog!  Continue reading Romps in Korea: Travels of Our shl and Tabs!

Walk down Memory Lane: Gu Family Book (2013)

GFB 13

Our second memory for this year’s “Walk down Memory Lane” comes to us from our Gu Family Book series back in 2013.

As much as we adored Lee Seung Gi and Bae Suzy, it was really Choi Jin Hyuk who stole the show–for at least the first two episodes–as he exploded onto our collective radars. I think it’s pretty safe to say that this series helped shower him with some serious stardust.

OK, I concede that the series sprinkled a good amount of stardust on some other rising stars like Sung Joon and Yoo Yeon Seok. We really shouldn’t forget about them either. 😉

It was also the first series that I tried the video recap format. You remember how this was my “real” foray into YouTube, recapping the episode on video and uploading just pictures on the blog posts? Hmmm…I have mixed feelings about those old videos. LOL. Seriously, I took a quick look at the one associated with this post and had myself a good chuckle. Heh. Ah well, it’s all part of our past romps together….

Anyhow, without further ado, let’s take a look at the post for Episode 1!  Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: Gu Family Book (2013)

Movie Monday: Terra Formars (2016)

Starring: Ito Hideaki as Komachi Shoukichi, Takei Emias Akita Nanao, Yamashita Tomohisa as Mutou Jin, Yamada Takayuki as Hiruma Ichirou, Oguri Shun as Honda Kou, Kosugi Kein as God Lee, and Kikuchi Rinko as Moriki Asuka

Rating: PG-13/R, subject matter and some violence

Running Time: 108 mins.

Walk down Memory Lane: Musing for Today


To new and seasoned Twinkles alike, I bring to you our annual walk down “Memory Lane,” a nostalgic stroll down previous blog posts that is designed to help us relive our memories from those times or to introduce you to past posts if you missed them because you are new to Musings. And again, my apologies for the lateness of our walk this year. At least we still have seven days left of October for our strolling, right? 🙂  Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: Musing for Today

Eye Candy of the Week: That Much Needed Extra Boost…!


Happy Sunday, Twinkles~! I trust that you’ve all been well and staying bright and cheery as our weather turns colder! 🙂


My apologies for the delay on oh-so-many blog posts, but I’ve been battling an unending war–yes! a war–with my health these past few weeks, and blogging has had to take a backseat to everything else that must be done before I can play in Kdramaland. *sigh* Yes, I’m referring to those dreaded Real Life duties that keep me preoccupied with deadlines and more deadlines. Phooey!

Hmmm…I suppose since I haven’t articulated my queue of blog posts, you really have no idea just how far behind I am, huh? LOL. I guess that’s a good thing. 😉

In any case, I hope our dear eye candies bring a smile to your face as you gear up for another work/study week! I’m going to try my best to catch up on my intended blog posts, but I can’t make any firm promises since…I’m a turtle at my very core.

*sigh* Seriously, I am such a little turtle sometimes. *inches ever so slowly through her list of deadlines*

May you all be faster turtles than I in your respective lives, my dear Twinkles~! Here’s to another glorious week! *hugs*
