Beanie level: Errand boy

Greetings from Krabi 😁

It’s gorgeous here.

Didn’t watch a single drama, but I did a 4 hour hike so yay me! (Nearly died. Lol)

      I’m in Singapore. I was in Australia previously for a year- that’s when I first discovered DB. but have been back in SG for the past 2-3 years already. 😊

        I guessed it! One of the few places on this planet where getting a place in a coveted school is like striking lottery. I didn’t go through that but as a fellow countrywoman, I totally understand 🙂 My younger boy just finished primary school last year. I’m happy that both my boys enjoyed their time in school despite the overhanging pressure of PSLE and whatsnot.

        All the best and wishing your boy a wonderful six years in primary school!

          Haha. He actually got into Pathlight. Which is an amazing place for kids like him on the spectrum. I’m really happy.

            I’ve only heard that it’s not easy to get a place in Pathlight so this is definitely worth celebrating. Congrats once again and may your boy have a wonderful time there.

    Right! Another Singaporean beanie! Inkling feeling that you are a singaporean too based on this post ><

      Haha. Indeed. I have a lot of things to say about Sg and this crazy p1 thing but it’s more so cuz my Boy has special needs but is bright so it was really important to me that he got into a good SN school that would give him the chance for full integration in the future. And we got it!!!

Done with Part 2 of Doctor John Medicap for Episode 5-8! This one is more philosophical than pure medical science. To Live a Full Life and To Die a Good Death? Let’s start talking about it now.

    Good job, michykdrama! I’m a big supporter of AMD/DNRs and wish everyone knew about them. I recently had a knee replacement and the hospital wouldn’t do the surgery unless I had and AMD on file. It was a bit disconcerting to prepare the AMD when I was having such a non-life-threatening procedure but I really want it on file so that things go the way I want should I require that kind of decision. My friends and family are all informed and have copies of my AMD/DNR.

      That’s great. I wish more patients were like you. I’m going for major surgery soon so I’m in the process of getting an AMD. But the good thing is that my husband knows very well what I want because we’ve talked about it before. But just so that there is no confusion (and interfering from “well meaning” older relatives), I’m still getting one done.

Finally finally finished my movie review of Parasite. Has anyone else watched it? I really enjoyed it! Truly deserving of its Cannes award, this movie did Korea proud.

    I’m looking forward to seeing it (and will wait to read your review until then). I hope it’s Korea’s choice for the Oscar and gets into the final nominees.

      I didn’t spoil the whole thing. Just the start and added some thoughts. It’s a movie you need to see to enjoy. A review or recount won’t do the nuances justice!
      Anyway I hope you enjoy it!

      I hope you enjoy the movie, I mean! Not my review. LOL. Just thought I clarify tho that I didn’t spoil the whole thing. Anyway Feel free to read my post only after watching it and do share your thoughts! 😊 sadly not many people I know have watched it. Other than the 2 people I dragged along with me to watch. 😂

I am on a roll. haha! Medicaps for Epi 3-4 are DONE. Everything you could ever want or need to know about Fabry Disease is here. 😝

I did my Doctor John episode 1-2 Medicap over again. This time it’s better I think. Also episode 3-4 Medicap should be out soon. Comments for improvement are most appreciated!

      Real life has been 🤪 but it was so nice to come back and see all the familiar people again and DB is the same wonderfully warm and supportive place it has always been.

      Hope you have been well and looking forward to your recaps 😁

Realise my wall is full of food! Lol. So decided to add more to it.

One reason I’ve been so MIA- my homemade chocolate hazelnut almond dacquoise cake. ☺️

So… this is another reason I’ve been MIA a lot.

Went for a class and made this entirely jelly flower cake. First attempt piping flowers ever.

So. Much. Fun!

Live Up to Your Name Epi 9: 😰💔😫

It’s one of those weeks where I’m so tired, I can’t wait for it to be over.

But I managed to pen my thoughts on Live Up to Your Name Epi 7-8 which is the bright spot in my week!

My comment got swallowed for moderation and I re-read it, but the only thing I realised was that I made some mistakes in grammar.

Is the moderation monster now a grammar nazi too?? 😱

    You probably happened to make the same mistakes as those *interesting* comments by bots!

Live up to your Name isnt the only kdrama where the heroine saves someone with a tension pneumothorax.

W:2 Worlds did too! Yeon Joo saved Kang Chul from one in Episode 1!

Watched Live up to your name, Dr Heo and enjoyed it!
I think my slump is over! *yay!*

And I started my Medicaps again!

      Good stuff. Kim Nam-gil’s portrayal of the good doctor and his expressions are also one of my favourite aspects of the show. He really sold the fish out of water bit.

        I loved the scene where he went up and down the escalator. 😂😂😂

        And by the end of those scenes you could see he was in sensory overload and his brain was almost in meltdown mode. 😂

        Loved it!

          Min was a combination of fish out of water and his own apprehension. When the guy collapsed outside of the nightclub and he approached the crowd crawling. That for me was daebak.

            OMG. Ok, this will sound bad, I know, but on the hospital bed I was thinking, this guy must smell bad. Why haven’t they given him a change of clothing yet? On a positive note, he can do his hair to look respectable. lol

            In real life, he would have totally stunk. Lol. I had a patient once who had a psychiatric problem and who refused to bathe- she hadn’t bathed for weeks. You could smell her from meters away. We spent really long just convincing her to have a bath ?

      They are up on my blog already (see link above) but I’m waiting for the DB recap too. Want to see what everyone else thought of it.

      I’m totally in love with Yeon Kyung! Girl is hot, and sassy and capable and still has a good heart underneath it all. Plus, jumping into thigh high boots effortlessly just after fainting?? #goals! 😝

      Oh shoot that bit was in Episode 2. I don’t think it’s much of a spoiler but I’m sorry!

      I liked Episode 2 more than 1, so go watch!! ❤️

        No problem. We got a good glimpse of her personality from the first episode. I’m already liking her character.

        Gonna watch the 2nd one tonight! ^^

    “Medicap” …… Heh! I love this!

    I’m currently not watching this drama (although I’m trying to fit it in the schedule!) but I’m liking the idea of reviewing the medical accuracy, or lack thereof.

    2
    1

      It’s not too bad! The traditional stuff is of course exaggerated and (in my opinion) highly fictional, but the modern day stuff is decently accurate.

      Anyway I tend to notice that the first few episodes of medical kdramas tend to be the least accurate since they are trying to build the story and catch viewers, not get bogged down with medical details.

Since I’m excitedly waiting for Live up to your name to be subbed, and for the recap of Manhole, I think my drama slump may be officially over!

Hooray!
