Quote of the Day: 24 Hour Fitness

The quote isn't 24 hour fitness.. but it was something i read inside. There was a poster that said,

"No matter what mood you walk in with, you will always walk out in a good mood"

It's so true though. Sometimes i feel like crap and don't feel like working out. I have to drag myself there. Or sometimes, i just had a bad day and want to bury myself in bed.

But every time - literally - every time i go to the gym; by the time i'm walking out i feel good. My body feels good, and mentally i feel like i accomplished something. It makes me feel refreshed.

Next time you are feeling blue, go work out!

Song of the Day: Tim - Unnecessary Words

The English translation is a little off. The direct translation is "Unmanly like words".. but that sounds funny.

Tim comes back after a few years with a new song. Perfect winter song IMO. Btw, the guy on the piano is Yiruma - a famous pianist and composer.

TV Show Review: 제빵왕 김탁구 (Bread King Kim Tak Goo)

This drama finished a while back. I just finished watching all 30 episodes, and it's been a while since i watched a good drama like this. I was hesitant at first because i wondered how good a drama regarding baking bread could be. I heard this drama got over 30% viewership in Korea. That's a pretty big hit.

The quick synopsis is about a boy trying to find his separated mother. His path eventually takes him to a bakery where he finds his passion.

I think they could have cast a better female lead role instead of Eugene from SES. I hate her acting.. and she's a bit old for the part she played. The drama does conclude in a happy ending which tickled my funny bone.

Taking Things for Granted..

Looking back at life, i realized that i've taken many things for granted. My youth for one.. if i had a time machine i would change soooo many things! Friends and family is another. You see them all the time, and don't realize how important they are until they are gone. Things that I already have, be it materialistic or spiritually.

Life truly is short. If you are under 20.. you won't feel it. I can confidently say that most teens don't realize it and are in a hurry to grow up. Only when you realize you're 29 and about to hit 30; you wonder to yourself where the time flew by.

Everyday is a blessing, everyday is a gift, and everyday you will have to live life. You live once.. why not make the most of the days you have left on this earth? You may have hit rock bottom and feeling like crap.. but life goes on. Time won't stop for you. Sitting on the couch hating life will only decrease the number of happy memories you can cherish.

It's only human to be in a slump once in a while, but pick yourself back up. Do you work 80 hours a week? If working makes you happy.. then i guess that's fine. But remember that time is precious.

This new years, my first resolution is to be happier. Do things that make me smile, and do things that make others smile.

DSLR Camera

To buy or not to buy.. that is the question. Pae linked me to a refurb DSLR on Canon's website. It's the Rebel XS series with a 18-55mm lens kit for $350 and free shipping. However, there is tax - so it comes out to $400 (link).

I'm pretty sure i'll be satisfied with the 18-55mm lens since i don't plan on making much use of the zoom feature. Most of the pictures i take will be portraits. There are some other used Canon DSLR's on craigslist for around the same price but they are older models like the 300 or 350 XT.

I want one.. but i'm in no rush for one. The question is how often i would even use it, considering that my Powershot SD100 collects dust 364 days a year. Hmmm..

What type of girl do you like?

What type of girl do you like? I get asked this question often, as i'm sure many of you do as well. I usually answer the same every time, "Pretty, long straight hair, book+street smart, shorter than me, clean skin". Clean skin.. ahh.. that's a big one. Girls with that smooth milky skin is so sexy!

Anyways, have you ever stopped to think about one specific quality that you want in a girl? I just came to one of those realizations thanks to Nam Gyu Ri. A direct translation from Korean is Eye Smile, or the shape your eyes make when you smile (눈우슴). I just melt inside when a girl with a cute 눈우슴 smiles at me.

Celebrity Review: Nam Gyu Ri (남규리)

Born 1985.4.26 - she debuted as a singer with the group SeeYa which some of you may remember. She got out of the group last year, and she has been working as an actress now.

Anyways, she's really cute.

Are there two actresses in this video or just one? I think i'm trippin..

I know for sure that one of them is Nam Gyu Ri.

Dang.. You're Old!

I recently saw a friend that I haven't seen in about 8 years. She's married and has 2 kids.. and the first thing that crossed my mind was, "Daaanng.. she's gotten so old!". Only to come to the realization that she's only 3 years older than me. Yes, she did get older.. but so did I.

Living the bachelor life, sometimes gets you into thinking that time has frozen and others around you get old. Yet, time doesn't discriminate. You are getting just as old as anybody else. It's just an illusion.

I notice this the most when playing sports. I remember 10 years ago, i could go day in and out playing football and basketball. I would have no sores or aches. But now, i seem to get hurt more often. I finally understand how the elderly feel when getting out of bed and their whole body aches in pain.

The best thing to do is to regularly exercise and keep healthy. From 2004 to 2009, i didn't work out at all. I've been making up for all of it these past 6 months, but it feels like i have another 6 months before i get back in full stride.

Movie Review: Ah Juh Shi (Mister) 아저씨

Wasn't expecting much, and i think that's what made the difference.  You know when watching a movie with very low expectations, more times than not, you find yourself surprised.  This movie was pretty good and it reminded me of "Taken" with Liam Neeson.

Won Bin transforms into a total badass as he fights bad guys in order to save a kidnapped little girl.  The knife fight sequences were pretty good and it doesn't use all the CGI/slow motion/special effects other movies use.

In other news, Jang Dong Gun is starring in a Hollywood movie "The Warrior's Way".. something about cowboys and ninja's.  I saw a preview for it while working out, and apparently it starts this Friday.  Probably not worth the money..
