Song IL Gook
I don't know what it is but it might be a little obsession because; what do you call a person who watches subtitled Korean War dramatic TV series?
The difference with these series is that they happen to be made according to their country's history, no far-fetched fetched stories or total fiction (maybe the fight scenes) apart from the way they adapt their history for television and probably the way they write the story to make it be popular. And there is none of those weak, fearful lead actresses. The women in these have a cause other than fight and pine away for the guy! No manipulation and deceit etc.
I love them because they are so refreshingly different from the series and telenovelas that we are subjected to by the television stations and networks. They are not entirely war dramas or action there's a bit of good romance here and there (if you appreciate good love) within the story. I realized that their twist to romance and love is actually realistic, which is a good thing because; life isn't about fairy-tales and fantasies nor is it about finding your one true love, then going on to battle for his love. The couple happens to have a theme song!
So, there is this male actor called Song IL Gook, he is probably the Korean version of Brad Pitt, because he is in everything I've watched so far. I had to go to Wikipedia to learn more about him of course (where would we be without these search engines?) and the synapses of the series, he only takes on roles that have physical activities i.e. martial arts etc. I also learnt that Korean actors are one the most highly paid actors in the world aside from Hollywood actors.

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
