Summer on Haeundae Beach

Summer is almost over. My favourite season of the year. Sure spring is great cos I get to see beautiful flowers, but nothing beats summer cos I get to wear my bikini and swim in the sun till I'm tired then lie under the shade on the beach! ^^

Some of my friends prefer winter to summer. He said, "I can put on more clothes in winter and I won't feel cold anymore, but even if I take off all my clothes in summer I'll still feel hot." Makes sense... hmm...

I prefer summer to winter. At least I can still stay outdoors in summer for an extended period provided I wear my UV sunblock and shades but I can't go anywhere for long during winter cos it's so freakingly cold!~

My Leo prefers autumn. Red and gold leaves are his favourite color. :-) Btw summer is supposed to "just start" for me cos my baby is arriving on Thursday morning and we'll be spending my summer vacation in Gyeongju and Jeju-do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Punctuation marks are simply not enough here to express my excitement)

Some photos of the famous Haeundae Beach which I hung out twice this summer. Next year I'll change a new bikini, I promise.

This grand scene of parasols made it into the Guinness Book of Records!

Dan said it's like Sunway Lagoon, only, it's natural!

Blue parasols, blue sea, blue sky. My favourite color :-) And there were blimps in the sky and yachts in the sea... such a picturesque scene.

Beer can parade

Six-pack abs, my favourite part of it all... :P

Korean chicks in bikinis...

and me :">

More of me:

With the Malaysian gang... fun time on the beach. :-)

Salt

Watched 'Salt' here in Korea yesterday with Jae Gyeong (my junior labmate) and Janice. First thought that came to mind after the movie: "Phew, Angelina must be damn tired shooting the movie..."

Although I'm not a huge fan of Jolie, I must say that she really pulled off some incredible stunts! It's no wonder that she's the top choice for female action stars in Hollywood right now. I read in IMDB that the lead role Edwin Salt was initially for Tom Cruise but he rejected it cos the script was too similar with Mission Impossible. So they changed the character's name to Evelyn Salt and gave the role to Jolie instead.

Don't know why, I enjoyed this movie more than Inception. Maybe because Inception focuses more on making people think and think and getting more and more confused throughout the movie and has lame action scenes. Salt's action scenes are way cooler and more straightforward!

Btw, some thoughts about watching movie in Korean cinema:

1. The cinema I visit here is near my university - CGV - which reminds me of our own TGV. It's clean and the interior design is same as our Malaysian cinemas GSC and TGV.

2. Salt is the fourth movie I watched here. First was Alice in Wonderland, second was Eclipse, and third was Inception.

3. Ticket price is EXPENSIVE - 8,000 won/RM24 per pax. With this price, I could watch 4 Wednesday night movies in Malaysia already. Coke is expensive too, regular size Coke costs 2,000won/RM6. Don't even mention popcorn it's wayyy too expensive here.

4. They have no English subtitles, only Korean, so sometimes it's difficult for me to catch the dialogue! I had a minor culture shock when I watched Eclipse - at the beginning where Riley was being chased by Victoria I burst out laughing when I saw "누구야?" (Who are you?) on the screen! Sorry, couldn't help...

Sarang Two

My Korean friend intro-ed me this song which I think is quite nice - emo rock style.

We heard this song playing while we were strolling on the beach after watching the International Hiphop Competition.



"Do you know what is sarang?"
"Yes, I know..."

Sarang Two
Yoon Do Hyun Band


Lyrics:
Naui harurur gamanhi dadajunun no
ununhan darbitara noui mosub sarajigo
hullo namun gormokiren sujubun ne maumman
naui aphumur gamanhi anajunun no
nunmur hullin shigansoge onjena nega isso
sangcho badun ne yong honen tatuthan ne songirman

choumen gunyang chingur jurman arasso
amu sekar obshi onjena yongwon hagir
to dashi sarangira burujin anha
amu aphum obshi no manun hengbog hagir
nor mannamyon marobshi issodo
to hanaui na chorom phyonan hedongoya
nor mannamyon sunsuhan ne mosube
chor obnun aichorom ijodongoya
negen nomu sojung hanno
negen nomu hengbog hanno
