Finally about myself

Finally about myself, I went to pay worship to some of my relatives this morning with my parents and my sister. My brother had to do overtime duty so he couldn’t come with us. We went to my grandmother’s house first. Although she’s the only grandmother I have now, I hardly visit her unless I’m with my parents. I’m just not close with relatives from my father’s side. Then we went to my aunt’s house. She’s also from my father’s side. Her house is almost exact like our house on the outside. They rebuilt it after we rebuilt our house, using the same design my father used. Well, I don’t want to comment on their house. After we left her house, we visited Nandar’s house. Her family moved to Myittarnyunt a month ago. We met her family back in US and we kept in touch with each other. I chatted with her for awhile. She told me that she saw our books at Ice Youth Foundation library. Before we went to BKK, we donated some children books to Ice Youth including the Babysitter’s Club. BSC books are in a series and I had most of the books. I was a big fan of BSC when I was younger and I collected them whenever I have money. I thought that it will be better to just donate them to a library rather than sell them and got the series separated. I think Ice Youth should give me some kinda of membership since I donated so many books to their library. If not, I’ll have to pay to become their member. I want to borrow some Michael Crichton books from there.

Anyway, after we left her house, we went to our uncle’s house. This uncle is from my mother’s side and I’m pretty close to his family ever since I was a child. I used to visit their house during holidays and stay there for a couple of days during Thadingyut and Thazaungmone ‘cuz my uncle got a lot of food during those days. And also I get to eat so many food cooked from the street. I stayed there for 3 months after I get back from US, to study for 10th grade. I wasn’t that happy with them ‘cuz I didn’t get along with them. One day we got into a big fight and they said we were pretty rude to talk back to the elders. They called my father and we went home with him. Now I visit them sometimes but I don’t sleep over anymore.

I should get off now but before I go, I will just add a few more things. Cartoonist Mg Wanna, creator of Thamain Paw Thout and Cartoonist Swe Min (Da Nu Phyu), creator of Toot Pi have passed away on Nov 10 and Nov 11. I am a fan of Thamain Paw Thout and I’m sad by the news that both cartoonists have passed away. Now I have no other comic books to read beside Weik Zar.

Jang Nara

Lately, there’s a show about interviews with Korean stars which aired on MWD on Saturdays and Sundays after the news. MWD crew went to Korea and a woman who can speak in Korean interviewed the stars. At first, I was pretty excited about it but they were only interviewing cast members so on Sunday I forgot to watch that show. My sister was watching Shania Twain mvs while I was busy timing the subtitles of “This Love I wanna Kill” ep 4. Suddenly she said , “…., Jang Nara is on TV”. I ran to the TV and saw one of her mv on TV with Myanmar translation. It’s my fav song of Jang Nara. After the mv, commercials came and I had to wait a long time. Then they showed Jang Nara sitting at bar. I recognized it immediately from “Wedding” drama. I couldn’t believe that the bar was a setup from KBS studio. I thought it was real. The interviewer and another woman from MWD gave her a black htamein skirt (which you sell to tourists here) and she looked really pretty wearing it. I was trying to find Ryu Si Won but the show was over. I only saw Lewy, one of the guy from Wedding, in the background. I was so disappointed that I missed her interview. I’m currently becoming addicted to “Wedding” and Jang Nara is one of my fav Korean actresses. I think it might come back as rerun on TV later. Maybe it might come in the afternoons on the weekends. MWD started airing Korean movies on last Saturday and Sunday. They aired “Windstruck” and cut it into 2 parts to show on both days. I didn’t watch it since I already have the movie. I guess they are trying to compete with Family Entertainment. My brother is working at there and he said those Korean dramas from MWD were from Yangon Entertainment. While MRTV has Forever and Family, MWD has Yangon Entertainment. I read an interview about MWD today and they said they are testing the movie airing and since their income is based on commercials, they are trying to entertain the audience with more additions beside Korean dramas and Chinese dramas. (I’m trying my best to keep it short but it’s pretty long now and I still haven’t write about myself)

Here’s a cute pic of Ryu Si Won & Jang Nara.

Full House

I was quite busy on Monday due to work and I didn’t have time to write on my blog. Now I have a lot to write. I have so much to say and I’ll post them all one by one.

First, I’ll start my post with Full House. Full House is a Korean drama starring Bi (Rain) and Song Hye Gyo. It’s a love story between Bi and Song Hye Gyo.

Here’s a summary from Korean National Tourism website.

Han Ji-eun lives alone in the house that she inherits from her parents. Her parents named the property ‘Full House.’ She has two close friends who end up selling the house behind her back to Lee Young-jae. Through a series of incidents, the two make a contract to marry, so that Ji-eun can stay in the house that her parents built. Although not in love with each other when they marry, a love between them develops slowly over time. The feelings of love are constantly interrupted by Gang Hye- won, Young-jae’s love interest for quite some time and by Yu Min-hyeok, a man that Han ji -eun likes.

This drama will air on Wednesday night at 7 pm, replacing ‘Ad Maniac’. I was hoping that Full House will come after that drama over and I was so happy when I heard the news. I downloaded this drama from bittorrent while I was in BKK. I was browsing d-addicts one day and I saw the torrents for Full House in the forum. I liked the pic posted at that topic and thought I might give it a try since SHG is in it. I made the right choice and it is now my fav drama of all time. My friends also became Full House fans after I showed them the drama and they kept bugging me to burn dvds for them when I borrowed a dvd writer from Ko SomeoneNull.

I also became a big fan of Bi after watching this drama and listening to his albums. I used to think that he was just a pretty guy but I see why he’s so famous. He’s just so talented in acting, singing and dancing. I used to like Song Hye Gyo so much when Autumn Tale came out but after awhile; she lost interest in her ‘cuz I don’t get to see much of her dramas. That is until I seen her in Full House. I like SHG so much as Han Ji Eun. I luv her clothes and hairstyles. Now that Full House will air in Myanmar, many people will fell in luv with it like I was. I still think about Full House almost everyday. I used to have Love Story at Harvard wallpaper on my desktop but I changed it to a pic of Bi & SHG sitting at a bench. I surf Full House thread at soompi whenever I have time and when I’m riding on the bus, if I get bored, I always think about funny scenes from Full House and it put a smile on my face. People on the bus might think I’m weird ‘cuz I’m laughing and smiling to myself. They probably think I’m crazy (. I also use “Aja! Aja! Fighting!” in my signature. It is like a encouragement phrase. Korean ppl use the word “Fighting” to encourage themselves in movies and dramas. In the drama, SHG said “Fighting” to encourage herself and Bi said he like “Aja! Aja!” better. It’s the same meaning (I think) and later those two phrases were combined. I took some captures from episode 1 today. I’m not good at taking captures and it took me more than a hour to get some pics. In the end, I got bored and I stopped taking the caps.

There’s a topic in Bagan Net forum titled “Korean Dramas Shown in MWD & MRTV”. I’m the topic starter and I used to keep a list of kdramas with their summaries. After awhile, I got bored ‘cuz hardly anyone reply in my topic and I felt kind of depressed so I stopped posting. I only posted about Phoenix and Stairway to Heaven ‘cuz I like them so much. I’m thinking of starting a new topic about Full House to share my collection of FH photos collected from soompi and I’m still thinking whether I should write a summary for each episode in Myanmar version. Even if I write them, will anybody read them? Also I don’t have much time when I get home from work and typing in Myanmar takes a lot of time for me. I am going to have to give up watching kdramas to write the review, reading the summary done in English and re-watching FH on MWD and I might have to watch the original versions if some parts were cut off. I am pretty sure Hyewon will get censored ‘cuz her clothes are so inappropriate to be shown on TV. I didn’t like her much in the drama until the later episodes when she stopped trying to show off her breasts. I just hope they don’t censor Bi as well (he he). There’s nothing wrong with a guy showing off his muscles, right?

My post is pretty long already and I still haven’t get off the Full House subject. I will try to keep my other posts short.
