Looking through all the pictures taken in South Korea last September, the memories come back to live.
I could clearly see, i walked down the street to JC Food Center from Ambassador Hotel in the falling rain with couple of friends. I could still feel the smell of the fresh air and the coolness of the evening breezes.
Various scenery popped up in my mind, the taste of food make me miss Korea more and more.
Korea...you wait, i will definitely step my feet on your grasses once again!

Its been many - many - many nights since i last updated this blog. I have been missing it for awhile but nothing much i can do. Work had taken all my times...really...i felt suffocated for a little while...tsk..tsk..tsk....
my Korea's post has already been past due...i don't know if i should write about the trip or not....i wish i had another chance to go there...i haven't had enough of all the places...such a wonderful country...i wonder if Koreans really proud of their country...Korea has become a world's Brand.
any way, November comes fast...and it has been raining ever since. It is safe to say, we are experiencing the real "November Rain" right now. Another month to go...Another year will approach...hmmm....time flies
Well, i actually cannot wait to go back home...Missing philippines so much now...missing our darling especially.
ouch!.....that's quite hurt. Why do it has to be that way??? everybody was having their great time when it suddenly been blocked leaving us hopelessly bored! It will be a great effort to welcome this kind of unfortunate decision. Days ahead will be dull and quiet as i am beginning to experience it now. What i am going to do? How i am going to be? Arrghh...day lights without this social networking is sure quite a big problem for me. I don't like...i don't like....i don't like it this way!!!!

An interview with Colin Morgan who plays the eponymous hero in BBC One's Merlin.
Q: Why has Merlin been such a success right around the globe?
A: The Arthurian legends themselves have endured for hundreds of years already, and we're taking them to the next level. Also from series one, the characters just clicked in people's minds. The writers are so smart about that and are constantly developing the characters in a fascinating way. This fifth series is the most sophisticated in terms of storylines.
Q: Has the series also benefitted from the huge current popularity of the fantasy genre?
A: Absolutely. The fantasy genre is so in at the moment. Viewers want to escape from their lives and watch something that is so separate from their everyday existence. People have always wanted to escape their lives – that's why they go to movies and the theatre. You can immerse yourself in another world for the duration of the show.
Q: Where are the characters at the beginning of this series?
A: Between the last series and this one, there has been a three-year gap. You get the impression the kingdom is now in very good shape. It is ruled by a King who is becoming grown-up. He has an impressive Queen by his side. They have a good relationship, and they are working very well together.
Q: Where does Merlin fit into all this?
A: He's very much part of it. His life's goal is still to get magic accepted. But the kingdom is the most settled it has ever been, and Merlin does not want to do anything that risks that. Arthur associates magic with fear, conflict and betrayal, and for Merlin to be connected to that would be a bad idea. However, as the series builds, Merlin is gradually bringing Arthur towards the point of confronting magic in the most dramatic fashion. It's very exciting, and people will want to see that. It's been Merlin’s big dream, but whether it goes to plan or not is another story…
Q: What is it about Merlin and Arthur’s relationship that viewers enjoy so much?
A: They are the king and his servant. They are obviously from very different backgrounds, but they work together towards the same end. Merlin is the unsung hero who is often responsible for things turning out positively, but rarely gets credit for that. The relationship also succeeds because Bradley and I have been working together for five years. People love the banter between the two characters – that's a very big part of it. Even in the most serious situations, Merlin and Arthur find something to lift them – that's a huge part of their friendship. You look for comic relief in difficult times. Unfortunately for Merlin, Arthur often takes the mickey out of him, and Merlin can't answer back – he just has to take it!
Q: Are you pleased that the show attracts such devoted fans?
A: Definitely. The fans are so supportive. It's amazing when you work on something for so long and find that your fans match your passion – and in many cases exceed it. That’s really gratifying.
Q: Do you generate a lot of attention when you shoot at the chateau in France that doubles for Camelot?
A: Yes. We go to remote locations in Wales where you're lucky if you run into a flock of birds. Then you go to France, where you run into a flock of fans. They're there because they love the show, and that's a huge compliment.
Q: Do you feel Merlin can continue for several more years?
A: There are always new avenues you can go down. The legends have lasted for centuries, and they can always be revamped and retold. You always want to be part of something you're so passionate about.
Q: Finally, do you think viewers will be thrilled by the fifth series of Merlin?
A: Absolutely. I don't think the fans will be disappointed in the slightest by this series. In fact, I think they'll be gripped! Credit to/Source from :http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/mediapacks/merlin5/colin-morgan.html

cant wait to post about my journey to South Korea
Everything happened so fast, but the memories last
^___^...while writing this, i am listening to some Indian songs
from someone radio...
Wow, finally the long awaited day has finally arrived! what a feeling! I feel excited and happy cos this dream has finally comes true.
Our group checked in at 9.00pm and now are waiting at the Golden Lounge while enjoying delicious refreshment. Our flight would be at 11:30pm and will be arriving Incheon Airport at 7.00am the next day, Seoul's time.
Anyway, i will try to updates this trip as frequent as possible as this trip is so special to me.
To my little Angelica, sorry, mama couldn't bring you along this time, but i promise, if God's Will, we will definitely make our own trip next time. Mama missing you already.
We had a great time in Pattaya. I love that place. I wish to go there again next time. From the arrival until the departure everything was good. I love the flow at the airport, so tourists friendly no hassle at all, i mean for me. Since we were staying at Discovery Beach Hotel, Pattaya, we prebooked the hotel transport to pick us up from the airport to the hotel. The journey took us almost two hours with light traffic from the airport to Pattaya city. Pattaya is well known for its white sandy beaches situated in Pattaya Bay. Indeed a very magnificent sight to see. We visited NongNooch Resort and Garden -where we witness cultural dance and elephant shows and enjoy the outstanding landscape. We went to Pattaya Floating Market and Pattaya UnderWater World. There are a lots to see and a lot can be done in Pattaya. That city alone offers a full selection of attraction by its own not mentioning the night life. Those who enjoys night life will find it best there.
Sharing some random shots here:
At Pattaya Bay - ready for visitors
Relaxing by overlooking the blue sea water and all other activities at the beach
Not a good timing for shooting the sunset :) but we still love the view :)
Angel plays alone at the beach, too unfortunate, my timing isn't right for swimming...you know..:))
Stunning view from the view point on a hill, overlooking the whole Pattaya Bay and City. Beautiful!
I missed this boat gliding....:(
Anyway, temples are everywhere since Thailand is majority Buddha...its understandable. :)
We love the view!!
I remember Running Man, they had one episode shot here in the Floating Market before they proceed to Nickhun 2PM's house for another game.
It costed us 1300TBaht to enter the Aquarium...i remember Aquaria in KLCC, its just the same :)
Grilled baby Octopus - love it!
Tom yam the real deal - the taste was so perfect!! Yummy!
Grilled Scallops -- this too very yummy!!
Hotel pool with water slide - My Angel had her great time of course with papa :)
Suvarnabhumi Airport is bigger and wider than KLIA. I like their staff especially their Immigration Staff, they are so tourists friendly.
Well, nothing suspicious here, only for the picture on the far left, they have Monk on priority seats. :)
Anyway, that was one of our memorable weekend. We did enjoy ourselves... love everything about Thailand. Their food, places and people. Lets put Pattaya in your list...you won't regret it.
Glory and thanks to God for giving us this beautiful opportunity. Thanks Lord!
