KOREAN DRAMA: Descendants of the Sun

Yoo Si-jin (Song Joong-ki) is the captain of a South Korean Special Forces unit. He catches a motorcycle thief, Kim Gi-beom (Kim Min Seok), with Sergeant Major Seo Dae-young (Jin Goo). The thief is injured during his capture and therefore sent to the hospital. In the emergency room, Si-jin meets Dr. Kang Mo-yeon (Song Hye-kyo) for the first time. He falls in love with her immediately. Mo-yeon mistakenly assumes Si-jin is part of the thief’s criminal gang, due to his nickname “Big Boss”, which is actually his call sign. He proves to her that he is a soldier with the help of army surgeon Yoon Myeong-ju (Kim Ji-won). [Wikipedia]

TV SHOW: You’re the Worst Season 3

Season 2 ended with Gretchen telling Jimmy that he dropped the “L” words to her while he was drunk. So when he wake up, Gretch, said “I love you, too” to Jimmy. So we started this season with Jimmy denying that he said the L word to Gretchen. Until she said to Jimmy that she doesn’t care if Jimmy doesn’t love her back, she always has one foot outside of the door anyway. Then, finally, Jimmy said ” I love you”. I love that their relationship has reached to another level.

Jimmy lost his dad in this season, acting all tough and like nothing happened, as if he was relieved that his dad finally dead. But we all know, deep down he was so sad. Now that his dad gone, he would never got that approval [of his job as a writer] he yearns so much from his father. So Gretchen decided to take Jimmy to have some closure about his dad departure before they take their planned “cruise with famous Instagram pets” together. But nothing works.

Until one day he decided to write a list of pros & cons of everything in his life either to keep it or leave it, including Gretchen. Gretchen has been trying to see what Jimmy writes about her in his list and they ended up reading their list of pros & cons about each other. Each is horrified at the other. They leave separately.

The last episode of this season made me wanna slap Jimmy so hard that he would come to his senses already. Gretchen already give so much for him, always be there for him beck and call. But he’s still acting like a coward. Can’t he see? They both are fucked up, but they NEED each other. But this time Jimmy fucked up BIG.TIME. You can see how deep the scars his dad/family gave him.

I can’t wait to see season 4. Jimmy better be grovelling. I want him to suffer. Gretchen deserves better.

MOVIE SUNDAY: The Handmaiden

the-handmaiden

3-star-rating

The Handmaiden wastold from three different part. First one, a con-man disguised as “Count Fujiwara” hires Sook-Hee as a handmaiden for a Lady named Hideko. Sook-Hee’s job is to make Hideko falls in love with Count Fujiwara. One thing lead to another they fell in love with each other instead.

There were some girl-on-girl action that was so intense to the point I got a little bit uncomfortable because it feels too real for me, like I was invading their intimate moments or something.

The twist and turns in this movie had me shook a little bit but on the other hand I saw this coming. Overall, it was a good movie. Although, I just can’t imagine watching this in a movie theater.

Watsons is having a 35%  discount for Bioderma Travel Kits. There are Hydration Travel Kit and Sensitive Skin Travel Kit. Of course like a true Bioderma sucker that I am, I bought the Sensitive Skin ones. Besides I don’t have money to buy both, their Sensibio H20 Micellar Water is what works better for my skin. I’ll tell you why  in another post.

Living in a tropical country, face spray always comes in handy. Especially in this holy month where I’m fasting and can’t drink water as much as I want to keep my skin hydrated. One spray and my skin feel refreshed in instant. The different with Hydrabio Brume and Evian (because that’s the only brand that I have used before Bioderma) is the particles in Bioderma are really small and spread widely, so with a soft pump, it would cover your entire face and Hydrabio Brume dries quickly. So you don’t  need to dab it afterward.

After been using it for a week — three times a day,  in the morning, afternoon and evening after I clean my face using Hydrabio H20. The difference that I feel is my skin now less oily and no more dry patches that often appear because of my dehydrated skin. But now, bye bye dry patches! See you never!

Now my Hydrabio H20 has a friend 🙂

You can purchase Hydrabio Brume 50ml at Sociolla for Rp. 99.000,-

or other drug store such as Guardian, Watson, etc.

TV SHOW: The Girlfriend Experience Season 1

The Girlfriend Experience

I spent my Saturday binge watching this. The Girlfriend Experience is about a law student–Christine Reade–in Chicago who just lands an internship at the law firm of Kirkland & Allen. She struggles between job, classes, and paying rent. The season started with Christine visit her friend–Avery–at the hotel ordering room service asking for the most expensive drinks. Later on, Avery reveals that she is an escort girl and encourage Christine to tag along and introduce her to a friend of her clients.

Christine eventually makes the decision to work as an escort initially working for Avery’s madam Jacqueline, until Jacqueline screw Avery over by cleaning out her bank account which resulted Avery took all of Christine’s jewelries and money. It pisses Christine off so she decided to do this escort thing on her own and left Jacqueline.

This show didn’t really catch my interest that much, the laws stuff bored me to death. At least not until episode 9. The moment when shit hits the fan. I mean, even with all the problems that had happened to Christine, I wasn’t satisfied with the way they solved it? I find it sexist. But that’s how it is in the real world and I understand that. BUT STILL.

I hope it gets better in Season 2 tho (If there’s any) because I still want to know what’s next for Christine??

Movie Sunday: Kungfu Panda 3

Kung fu Panda never disappoints. It just get better and better with each movie. I was blubbering mess after watching this movie.

So in this movie we get to see Po biological father – Li Shan. He’s going to help Po to become a master Chi, to defeat a supernatural villain—Kai, who has been defeating all kung fu masters across China. And to achieve that, Po has to learn how to be himself, a panda. Later we found out to master a chi, we don’t have to be as good as other people. We can’t. We just have to be the best person of ourselves. Do what you know best. Pursue that. If you could master it, you’ll have the chi.

This topic really hit me home, because until now, I’m still figuring out what I want to be in life, who I really am? I’m probably the only grown woman who’s crying in a theater full of kids. I’M NOT ASHAMED OF THAT. It gave me ALL THE FEELS.

I gave this movie  5 stars.

Funny panda story who loves to eat dumpling but has a great message behind it. I highly, highly recommended it!

Movie Sunday: Deadpool


I saw this movie last week with my mom and my brother. Deadpool has me right at the beginning of the movie. And it held throughout the movie. Unlike your typical superhero movie, Deadpool doesn’t want to be called a hero. He delivered all this funny lines and make fun of the other heroes or Ryan Reynolds…aka Mr. Deadpool himself! The movie started off with Deadpool chasing his enemy—Francis (played by Ed Skrein. Really hot, by the way! Go Google him!). He wanted to have his face fixed because the lab who made him a ‘hero’ had ruined his pretty face in the process.

I gotta admit tho, Ryan Reynolds is hella basic. I mean, it took him two (?) superhero movies to finally made a hit. But I gotta give it to him this time. He was freaking hilarious. I just can’t stop laughing. Kudos to the scriptwriters of this movie!

I gave Deadpool 4 stars. Great hero / romantic-comedy movie—perfect movie date. Great soundtrack too—yes I love those old school songs. Great cast! I highly recommended!
