Beanie level: Errand boy

Because of the PPLs, I found Dyson. My family got a Dyson last week, and our lives have never been better. Highly recommended for those living with fine dust.

Worth every single *insert ur currency*

    I want a Dyson.

    A little bit more in detail:

    We bought it and used it right away because if something goes wrong you can have a new one within 7 days from the day you purchased. I used it to clean the whole house. Then, the battery seemed to go wrong as it shut down abruptly after the screen showing that there was about 10 percent left, so I had to get exchanged it for the new one.

    I got the new one yesterday and everything went very well with today’s cleaning. The only con I found is that the Dyson 11 Fluffy is OHHHHH SOOOOO HEAVY. Dyson should do a research and make it so much lighter and that version will be just perfect for a housewife.

The only show I’ve been live-watching is My Unfamiliar Family. It’s a good show with an excellent cast.
Kim Ji-suk is such a gem. Han Ye-ri is lovely as usual. They make a perfectly lovely pair.

One very good thing about watching My Unfamiliar Family is that it inspired me to say my thoughts out loud instead of keeping it all inside. By doing this, I inspired other family members to voice their opinions straightforwardly too. In an Asian family like mine, things are pretended to be ok almost all the time as being not ok might be considered being unable to dealing with the problems yourselves and as such a sign of weakness.

But people are weak all the time. I think we are learning that it’s ok to be weak or broken and everyone will still love you all the same if not even more.

    This is so nice! I’m glad it’s helping you.
    I come from a family in which we openly speak about anything we want. I grew up hearing my family stories and the struggles they’ve gone though and it’s always helped me to understand who I am and why I am this way.

      Not all families though. My husbands family tell each other everything. Mine only does when someone thinks someone else is out of line.

Omo, I never knew that Dr.Bae from Romantic Doctor 2 is the new CEO, the potential love interest of FL in My Unfamiliar Family. And it still has Kim Ji-suk. Awww.. my heart…

When I’m stressed out, I bake.

Midnight apple muffins..

    It has been a stressful week for me. Sometimes, things that you would never imagine happening happened to you or your loved ones, and that kinda broke my heart. By baking, I could take my mind off those things that happened, and just focused on measuring the ingredients and following the recipe. Looking at the likes I got, it feels like someone cheering me up even when they don’t know what’s happening. This warms my heart. Thank you all.

    I guess this is why I loved The King. I needed something to take my mind off all the things in my head. The King made so little sense that I just enjoyed all the beauty it had without having to exercise a little bit of my brain. It was the right thing for me.

    Guess everything has its timing.

      Thanks teehee. Cooking is all about experimentations. This one is the Paleo Apple Muffins that used almond powder instead of all-purpose flour and honey instead of sugar. It’s a little bit healthier than the normal versions of apple cakes so you can say!

I think I know what love is. I ❤️ The King regardless of its flaws. The ending and most of the eps are so beautiful.

What I learned from the last ep is “Fate is unpredictable.”

What about you?

    I agree with you 🙂 In spite of the issues, I love this drama.

      That’s so fine @stpauligurl! (Glad to see you on my wall 😊) I too agree that if I’m not blinded by my love for the drama, which I just really don’t know where that came from, I would have given it up long time ago.

    We remain mostly opposite in our taste. It was beautifully filmed though.

I got my first (and probably my last) Alley beverage from the Alley today at a department store near my house. The PPL is effective, or I’m just easily convinced I’m unsure. The deer looks cute btw.

    Why last? Was it terrible? Expensive? Maybe you chose a bad one?

      I’d just say that I normally don’t buy sweet drinks these days. After the crazy bubble tea trend in my country, I decided to put a stop to that. My purchase today was only because I wantEd to relate to The King a little bit more. It’s been a crazy ride in the last episodes but I still like it a lot.

      Three to four dollars per glass is considered expensive for a drink in my country. A normal one dish meal would cost me only 1 1/2 dollars. The beverage tastes fine btw.

        Thanks for the explanation! It’s the kind of thing I’d buy and I don’t even like King but I really like sweet drinks. 😛

    Ohhh. I thought it was just a South Korean Coffee Chain. It’s in a few other countries. Behold the power of PPL.

      I thought the Alley was Taiwanese.

      Anyway I just googled and apparently there are a few stores in Australia as well. Although when I googled them I got a very strange pop up that said there have been accusations it’s not related to the parent company and that they were very definitely part of the Alley. Maybe I should drive three hours north and give it a try. Pandemic schamdenic.

      I decided after trying to make sense of things (like after a 20-minute watching) that I’d better not try to think at all. That did me well actually.

Just made a poached egg for the first time. It turned out so bad! Hehe I guess it was because the water

temperature wasn’t exactly right. Just learnt how difficult it is to poach an egg. 😳

    I made a poached egg for the 1st time last Friday and… yeah, I will never underestimate how difficult it is to get these eggs all pretty/round/runny in my plate again !

      At least you made some of them round. My poached eggs were like the yolks were flying among the clouds.

    Did you add some vinegar to the boiling water?

      Yes I did. I used like a table spoon of white vinegar. Did I make a mistake when I attempted to make a whirlpool? 🤔

      Do you think I used too little vinegar?

      2

        I tried it for the first time like two months ago. I don’t like runny eggs but my other half does. What I remembered from how chefs were doing it while working in the train kitchen for a year, they just kept the water boiling slowly and added vinegar but it needs a big pot. They didn’t whirlpool the water they’ve just crushed the egg into it. I tried it that way and it worked.

        Not boiling, simmering is the right word! Anyway, there’s this good video of Jamie Oliver who explains everything about it.

… And may I just say that The King ep.13 is so boring. The best part of it is the blatant PPLs. The way they were advertized was so in-your-face it was so hilarious.

    We got PPL in return for a PPL lol. I mean they just revealed what we already knew since ep 1 so idk why put the grand music, it isn’t a grand reveal (it is for the characters but if the viewers knew it since forever then that makes the characters look dumb).

    3
    2

      Yeah.. I think so too. I mean I couldn’t figure it out myself (I thought Shin Jae was the one who came and saved the little Gon) but hearing that theory from a lot of Beanies made the revelation a bit .. plain?

      It annoyed me that Lee Rim figured it out at the same time as Gon..

    This episode wasn’t as exciting as the last one. However, it did confirm a theory that many of us had so that’s a plus 🙂

      Thanks for your kind words @edgarpordwed! It tasted quite nice actually. The only problem with it was the cabbage wasn’t properly cooked, so I was a bit bloated for some hours. 😅

      I got a tip from one website that Shin ramyeon is a good choice for the noodle part. I’ll improve my dish next time with the properly cooked cabbage and the new brand ramyeon.

Watching dramas is the matter of preferences. I sincerely don\’t understand why we need to even want to try to convince others of our own opinion. *Skimming through the comment section of The King*

    Btw, dropped the Mystic Pop-up Bar after about 10 minutes. Not to my liking, or it’s just not the right one at the moment.

    There are so many comments and most of them politely discuss what they like or dislike about any episode, sometimes sharing theories. This isn’t trying to convince others.

      Most of the time it’s unregistered users who get really offended when they don’t like our polite discussions…. I usually just skip them but it was getting on my nerves so I had to say something under the first comment. The whole thread is all very proper and decent. *sips tea*

      @lixie @wishfultoki I know that Beanies are generally very acceptance of others’ opinions, but I can’t say that it doesn’t sometimes irritates me to see some comments (I just realized that most of them came from unregistered users) that get so personally offended. Hrrr.. I guess I’ll just have to skip those. 🙂

      This was just my frustration yesterday. Generally, I really like it here.

      I don’t get it when people say there’s a lot of hate for LMH and KES on DB when i mostly see mixed reactions? I myself have poked some fun at the show while also admitting that I do enjoy it for the most parts – by choosing to put the head scratching moments aside. Anyway when you put a star writer and actor together, expectations will be sky high and it’s bound to attract a lot of attention good or bad.

    I haven’t been reading the comments (I’m still only on episode three) but I feel like if someone really likes or dislikes a thing you’re not going to persuade them otherwise, no matter how beautifully written your argument is. I like it when things I’ve missed or misinterpreted come through in the comments.

Maze – Yongzoo [The King: The Eternal Monarch]
This romantic song is my fav ost of the show. Whenever it is played, my heart is filled with joy. Sounds so heavenly…

    The lyrics of the song are sad, though, but go well with the story (and perhaps also predict how it’ll end).

        And truthfully, I’m also glad this space and Beaines (like you) are so kind that I don’t feel like I am bullied because I like something the majority just doesn’t. Especially when I just like the shows and I can’t give some ‘valid’ explanation for liking them! 🥺🥺🥺🤣

    Just finished The King ep 11 and this is the first time I’m a bit let down by show. I’m not sure if the first half of the ep was managed by the new team or not, but I guess the way the story was told in the banal way made me lose interest. The magic was lost there. The good thing is that I got the charming, cheesy scene back at the end of the ep. I feel a bit sorry now.
