Bad Sense of Brand

August 26th 2011

I met my friend’s friend, this is the first time we met.
They’re nice, but I think I don’t really fit them.

There are many kind of people in this word, some of them is the pair of this opposite type : They are who have so much greed and they who don’t have much greed.

Imo, since Greed is one of 7 sins, there’s no human who doesn’t have any greed, they had but the Greed Level each human is different.
Greed, in korean it’s ์š•์‹ฌ (read: yoksim), in japanese it’s ๆฌฒ (read: yoku).

I can’t stay with them for a long time.
I ever write it somewhere on my blog that I’m someone who has a dark heart. Maybe only 1% of my heart still white, the rest of them is black and dark grey. That I’m trying my best to keep it grey, or even become white. It’s not easy.

But staying with them is absorbing my white essence.

They’re talking about branded items.

I’m a person who doesn’t really care about what they’re using, what they’re wearing, how much the prices of those branded item or wtf etc…

I don’t even want to know…

I acknowledge it, that I’m lacking in this area. I’m not only bad sense of direction, I can’t even recognize a car. I should look at the plate number, and colour, to know if it’s my friend’s car or not before I jump in. If I’m watching movie like “transformer” I don’t even know which one is Ferrari, I only can call it depend on the colour, like “the white one”, “the green one”, etc. My eyes, can look the difference, that car is awesome just look into the shaped, but it’s just that, I can’t remember what’s the brand of those car, even they told me once, I will forget it soon. Maybe we can call this “bad sense of brand“.

It’s not only happen to cars, but also bag, and dresses. Maybe when my eyes saw a beautiful dress, will be “whoa that dress is so beautiful”, but that’s all, without knowing what kind of brand it is.

But then those new acquaintances said:

“How much do you think my bag’s price?”
My answer : “sorry I don’t know.”
“Just guess it”
My answer : Sorry, I can’t, I don’t know these kind of stuff.”

Then she answer that it’s around 2000 USD, brand Burberry (I’m really sorry, I don’t even know that in this world, there’s a brand named “Burberry”).
And she said that she has another branded bag 2500 USD.

(oh come on, do I have to know how much your bag’s price? I don’t even know how much the price of my own bag, the one I used right now, since it’s my birthday gift, I treasure it a lot)

I do know, brand item like Gucci, LouiseVitton, etc. But even I know the brand name, I don’t really remember the stuff, I don’t know how it’s looks, I don’t even care when people used it or not, since I can’t tell the difference between the fake or the real one. Also I don’t attracted to those brand design. Even if I had the money, I think I will reconsider about around 20 times before I bought it (it might ended up I’m not buying it too LOL).

Why? It’s clear right? That something that precious to you, your life achievement, wouldn’t be same with another person. For me, instead of buying a bag 2500 USD, I’m prefer feed it into orphanage, those large sums of money, sure can feed a lot of peoples who are starving.

I’m sorry to say this, but even you said that your bag is a branded item, for me it’s nothing. Even you laughing over my cheap-no-brand-bag which even me -dont-know- how much the price. It’s better than your Burberry bag. Because I received it as a gift from my beloved friend.
Even you laughing over my other cheap-no-brand-bag, I bought it with my own hardwork, so I treasure it a lot.

I’m also a human, I’m sure that I do have some greed.
But maybe my greed is not in this brand thingy.
And I haven’t find where’s my greed lies to.

It’s not bad to have some greed, It’s lead us to an ambition, an achievement. So you would have a goal. This life needs a goal.
But just don’t let your goal drag you into a river called greed, once you lost, it would be difficult to come back I think…

Even so, sometimes I’m wondering, when it would be, the day where I can step into a shop and taking any item without I’m looking at the price’s tags -LOL- I think I’m watching too much drama with the scene when chaebol buying stuff just by taking it~

Yay, thanks for jumping into my nonsense, even I know that you’re accidentally dropped here hehehe ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m really glad that recently I found out that people still root in Classic music.

These pics are the faces of the famous composer classical music, look at their face, they are so handsome and charismatic xD

Today, while I’m walking on a Shopping Mall, they play Classic Instrumental Music “Symphony No. 25 in G minor” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (click here to listen). This piece always being powerful piece for me, I will notice this piece only by once hearing this piece ๐Ÿ™‚

Not only in a Shopping Mall, any Public event, wedding and advertising, but also in a drama!! I’m totally glad hehehe… I like listen to this music, those piece are perfectly composed, and match in any special occasion.

The female lead of currently airing SBS drama “Protect The Boss“, No Eun Seol, is also using one of classic instrumental kind of ringtone when she received a call from her boss. Well, since I’m a fan of Ludwig Van Beethoven and this piece is also one of my fave piece, so I knew it right away that It’s one of the famous Beethoven’s Piece “Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67: I. Allegro con brio” (in piano version), this piece usually only being called “Symphony No. 5” (click here to listen). This piece have been used in many drama and movie, usually for a tragic comedy kind of situation -LOL-

Do you know?

That without you realize it, you have been heard many classical music. Then one day. if you listen to the classical music, you will be “Oh! This song…!!” hehehehe… Many people doesn’t like classical music, saying that it’s sleepy, lullaby etc, but it’s not true, classical music is easy listening music and really good for health, that’s why when a woman pregnant, the doctor recommend her to listen classical music for the baby, it’s good for brain! Well, for adult it’s good for brain therapy and relaxes -lol-

The other piece I like, maybe you will like it too ๐Ÿ˜‰ they’re lovely and easy listening pieces :

  • Violin Sonata No.5 in F major Op.24 “Spring” Part 1.Allegro byย Ludwig Van Beethoven (click here to listen). This piece was also used in the musical drama “Nodame Cantabile“, in this drama there are so many other classic music, but this one is the most I like compare to the other pieces ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Fur Elise byย Ludwig Van Beethoven, this piece actually means “For Elise” in english, and actually is a piece for Elise, the one he loved, but unfortunately, everytime I listen to this song, somehow I feel creepy, maybe because they’re too many movie, anime, or drama who using this piece for a creepy scene like a piano on the school which is suddenly playing in midnight =_= (click here to listen).
  • Reverie byย Claude Debussy, this one is the most I like, Reverie means “Daydreaming” in english, so when I hear the song, at first, feels like I got such a good dream, but then suddenly turn into a bad dream -lol-, well this is my own description xD (click here to listen). This piece also being used in Jdrama “Koishite Akuma“, in that drama this piece is the favorite piece of the main lead.
  • Chopin Etudes Op. 10 No. 3 Tristesse by Frรฉdรฉric Franรงois Chopin, this is my personal description, but when I hear this song, I feel sad, like I’m losing someone ๐Ÿ˜ฆ (click here to listen). This song is used in year 1991 Jdrama “101 Proposal“, this piece was the favorite piece of the female lead’s fiancee who died in an accident.
  • Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel (This is his best piece), I think everyone know this piece, this piece have been using in many song, and many times being remix and added into a pop song, also become many drama’sย  and movie’s soundtrack (click here to listen).
  • Many more, I’m going to sleep now, going to add it later >_<

Rules Before Sleep #1ย ย  (I made this rules lol~)

Do not watch sad drama!
Because it makes you cry all night long, creeping out your neighbors,
then your eyes will swollen when you wake up in the morning.

Tonight I watched ใ€Œ Scent of Woman ใ€ the 10th episode. Yeah the drama start to get into the climax, and another tears overflowing on my cheek. Very sad, I ended up sulking and crying whole episode!.

The things I got from this episode:
We never really appreciate what we have in this life. Being healthy, and being loved is enough. Just like the scene when Yoo Hye Won (Lee Yeon Jae’s best friend) shared about her story being proposed by an average man (I think almost all women, sometimes are whining over something like this, the feeling wants more and more, to find a better guy, but… until which point you will reach your satisfaction?), and just like what Lee Yeon Jae said, that being healthy and being loved by someone is already made her envy so much (I’m very touched by this line), I was like being slapped right on my cheek. It’s a good drama for self-reflection.

I think I should value my life more.

Even though I don’t have anybody who loved me (this one is the missing puzzle) except my parents and my brother, but I do have a pretty healthy life, and I’m not suffering in financial even it’s a bit tight. I do live well.

Thanks God for giving me a good life.

Even it’s not the Great or the Best.
One day, I’ll turn it into one of them.
Why? Because it’s my Life ๐Ÿ™‚

PS : and I would found my “Missing Puzzle” hehehe ๐Ÿ˜‰

Actualy, when I watch “Scent of Woman”, I really like it when the phone ringing, for Lee Yeon Jae or even Kang Ji Wook, because both ringtone sounds good, then I wonder (did you?), what was the song of their ringtones, well I’m a person with high curiosity, you can see on my right panel, the curiosity rate is the highest by 19% -LOL- I’m going to use it as my ringtone lalalala~ ๐Ÿ™‚

The Ringtone used in the Drama “Scent of A Woman”

The song that Lee Yeon Jae used as ringtone is “Hawaiian Couple” by Humming Urban Stereoย  (Click here to listen).

I found this song when I’m searching by writing down the hangeul lyrics (from what I heard in the drama) in Daum Music Site, and right away after that, I found this song! and also It’s an original soundtrack of Korean Movie “๋‚ด ์‚ฌ๋ž‘ย  a.k.a. My Love” (2007). It’s a very sweet movie, starring many famous actors and actresses, such as Uhm Tae Woong, Jung Il Woo, Lee Yeon Hee, and Choi Kang Hee who is now starring SBS drama “Protect The Boss” with Ji Sung (one of drama that I “hooked into” now hehehe). I’ll watch it immediately!!!ย ์ง€๊ธˆ ๋‹น์žฅ!! xD

And the song that Kang Ji Wook used as ringtone is “Another Day” by Buckshot LeFonque (Click here to listen). I really like this song, one of my favourite! ๐Ÿ˜€

-Added September 7th 2011 : After I watched Episode 14 of Scent of Woman-
I find out that Lee Yeon Jae changed her ringtone hehee…
The ringtone is the cut version of songย titled “์—†๋Š”๊ฒŒ ๋ฉ”๋ฆฌํŠธ”์—… (Eobneunge Meriteu | Having nothing is Merit) sung by ์˜ฅ์ƒ๋‹ฌ๋น› (Oksang Dalbit aka Dalmoon) click here to listen ๐Ÿ˜‰
I’ve made the romanization and english translation for this song (click here for lyrics).

Additional Info :
Cell phone model used by the main characters is Samsung Galaxy S2.
Lee Yeon Jae used the white one, and Kang Ji Wook used the black one.
This phone also used in SBS Drama “Lie To Me” and “Spy Myung Wol” ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you find what you’re looking for, and
Thanks for jump jump around here ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yeah, recently I’m crazy over a Tango thingy, because of a Korean drama “Scent of A Woman” (Starring : Lee Dong Wook & Kim Sun Ah).

Actually there is an American movie with the same title in 1992 (which is also a remake of Italian Movie “Profumo di donna” in 1974). But the drama don’t have any relation with those movie, the same thing only the “Tango” and theย  Bucket List.

If you watch it carefully, you will found Kang Ji Wook (the male lead of the drama) watching TV (Scent of A Woman : Episode 7 – 00:18:05 HANrel), it’s a scene where Al Pacino (the male lead of the movie) dance Tango with music “Por Una Cabeza” (which is become the soundtrack of the drama too hehehe) ;D

The drama is about a woman who has cancer, then decided to live her life with the fullest within the 6 months remains. Even though the synopsis sound a very sad story, but they wrapped up the drama totally different, it’s sweet, lovely, classic, romantic, touchy, and full of meaning, very recommended to watch! Maybe because they got an OTP with superb chemistry ๐Ÿ˜‰

In the drama (Episode 4), Lee Yeon Jae make a Bucket List (contains 20 things she wants to do before she died). And the number 3 of those 20 is “Learn Tango”.

์—ฐ์žฌ์˜ ๋ฒ„ํ‚ท๋ฆฌ์ŠคํŠธ :
์ฃฝ๊ธฐ์ „์— ๊ผญ ํ•˜๊ณ  ์‹ถ์€ 20 ๊ฐ€์ง€ใ€‚ใ€‚ใ€‚
ใ€Œ3. ํƒฑ๊ณ  ๋ฐฐ์šฐ๊ธฐใ€

And I recently learning the basic 8 move, (which is in the drama Kang Ji Wook do it around 20 times until he can master it, lol).

Tango is a dance, Art of Seduction
Begins in the eyes.
The breathing is deep and unheard.

Basic Steps Woman’s Role:
1. Left foot forward
2. Right foot to the side
3. Left foot back
4. Right foot back
5. Cross with the left
6. Right foot back
7.Left foot opens with pivot
8. Together with the right

Sorry, Mom…

This is something that anyone shouldn’t do…

Today, I’m throwing my anger to my Mom…
I know that I shouldn’t do this…
I know that whatever I would say will only become an excuse…

I’m home and find out that my room in mess.
And without I realize it, I raised my voice and shouted at my Mom, I ask her what did she do to my room until it becomes a mess like that…
Usually she only clean the room, but my room filled with sand(not dust). I ask her and she said that she didn’t know…
I should not throw my anger to my Mom,

I knew it, but still… I did it…

This isn’t the 1st time, I keep raising my voice, me myself also didn’t know bout that… I realize it after I done it (๏ผž_๏ผœ)

I know that I’m the one who will miss my Mom when she’s not around.

I want her to know that, even I keep raising my voice or shouting when I’m talking to her, doesn’t meant that I hate her… (Even sometimes she’s annoying).

For me…
She’s an incredible Mom, best wife, wonderful chef and the greatest housekeeper, all in one.
The only one in this world, my lovely Mom.

I’m really sorry Mom.

I think she knows if I’m in a bad mood, I will shouting crazily over a little thing, maybe that’s why she throw a distance and ignore me (lol).

Mom, I will try to talk nicely to you…
I’ll try to drive down my anger…
I will earn much money, to buy you many things…
To buy you a nice meal, nice outfit…
To live a nice life…
So please live a long life… And stand by me.

์—„๋งˆ ์—†์œผ๋ฉด, ๋‚œ ์ƒ์ƒ๋„ ๋ชปํ•ด…
์—„๋งˆ ์‚ฌ๋ž‘ํ•ด~

PS:
Please love your mom, don’t be like me…
*Don’t try this at home*

Hehehe, Hooked up again into another melodrama xD (I think it’s not me if I didn’t hooked up into drama LOL…)
This time is another Amazing Drama, a sad story, but yet very lovely to watch. I never really likes Kim Sun Ah’s drama, but this time, I really like her, I like her act, it’s totally different with her any other drama she ever lead before… and now I’ve become her fans !! She looks very beautiful here, especially when she dance tango (with Lee Dong Wook of course)! ๐Ÿ˜‰

English Translation

Whenever your hands out for help, Iโ€™ll be there to reach your hand
When you’re happy, Iโ€™ll be the first person who gives you a bright smile
This kind of me, also love you

Donโ€™t say that I look like a fool
You donโ€™t even have to say โ€œthank youโ€
To have you by my side
Just by that makes me happy

The time I canโ€™t bear day by day
And also the tiredness I felt everyday
Because you’re there, because I met you
Just like now, I can bear it

Whenever your hands out for help, Iโ€™ll be there to reach your hand
When you’re happy, Iโ€™ll be the first person who gives you a bright smile
Thank you, this kind of me looks like fool

Whenever you open your eyes, Iโ€™ll be there around your sight
Iโ€™ll always by your side, looking at you
If only you can accept the deficient me

Because of this never-ended-love
Why do I keep crying like this

Whenever your hands out for help, Iโ€™ll be there to reach your hand
When you’re sad, I will be the first person who hugs you.
Thank you, this kind of me looks like a fool

Whenever you calling out my name, Iโ€™ll be around where I can hear you
Iโ€™ll always by your side, looking at you
If only you can accept all the deficient me

PS :ย  Sorry for my poor english…
There’s one line of the lyrics from daum which is mistakenly written, so I correct it.
