Lie to me

Last week I bought DVD of Lie to me. It is a South Korean romantic, comedy drama starring Yoon Eun-hye and Kang-Ji-hwan. This is not new because it was aired last year in South Korea and I think it has been tagalized on GMA 7 (not sure though). Back to the DVD, the one I bought isn’t original. I know it’s not right to buy or support pirated CD or DVD. But I’m just being practical =). For the price of Php 35, I can now enjoy watching this hit Korean series. The price is very reasonable and the quality of the DVD is good just like I’m watching the original copy. The only problem is my TV because it’s acting weird lately. Most of the time it’s only black and white (just like watching the old-time). And there are times it has color but only red and blue. Well, it doesn’t matter as long as the quality is good. Forget about the color of my television, hahah.

Lie to me has 16 episodes. I already watched 9 episodes and still 7 more episode to finish. 8 or 9 episode made me cry earlier. I’m so excited what will happen to Yoon Eun-hye and Kang-Ji-hwan. Will they continue lying or acting like they were married?

Here is the synopsis of Lie to Me. Photobucket

The series revolves around a civil servant named Gong Ah-jung (played by Yoon) who pretends to be the wife of the wealthy hotel heir, Hyun Ki-joon (played by Kang) in order to impress her former friend. Gong Ah-jung (Yoon Eun-hye) is a fifth-level government employee of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. At the beginning of the series, Ah-jung lies to an antagonistic friend about being married as a form of revenge. The lie quickly snowballs (due to several misunderstandings) until Ah-jung realizes that everyone is gossiping about her supposed, secret marriage to Hyun Ki-joon (Kang Ji-hwan), the very wealthy president of World Hotel. As the rumor spreads, a miserable Ki-joon is forced to combat the rumors to his friends as he decides a plan of action in getting Ah-jung to correct her lie. Ki-joon and Ah-jung decide to take action to squash the rumors, with Ah-jung agreeing to call together her friends so she can confess her discretion. When this doesn’t go as planned, Ki-joon decides to take legal action against Ah-jung. However, after a series of events that bond the pair together, they both agree that pretending to be married for a short while would be mutually beneficial though Ki-joon promises that Ah-jung’s lie is not forgiven and that he will eventually go ahead and follow through with his lawsuit. Things become even more complicated when Ki-joon’s ex-fiance, and a close friend of his brother Oh Yoon-joo, returns from France. After a friend of Ah-jung sees Ki-joon and Yoon-joo togeher and raises suspicious of infidelity to Ah-jung (and leaves Ah-jung embarrassed), Ah-jung forces Ki-joon to promise that he will not be caught with any women for the duration of their sham marriage. Ki-joon and Ah-jung grow closer and more fond of one another over the duration of their marriage and Ki-joon finds himself questioning his commitment to his former fiance Yoon-joo. Eventually, however, Ki-joon makes the decision to be with Ah-jung despite the heartache he is sure to cause his ex lover.

Senior citizen in Lucena can now enjoy Free movie

My mother is already a senior citizen. And as a senior citizen she receives discount in foodstuff, fare, medicine and other privilege from different establishments. Last Pasayahan sa Lucena (fiesta celebration) city mayor announced that the senior citizen will now enjoy FREE movie passes. Well, finally after 3-4 months of waiting the project has been approved. Now, the senior citizen in Lucena who has senior ID can now enjoy free movie.

My sister is working in city hall so its easy for her to get stuff like senior’s ID (mother has this for a long time already and enjoying the benefits), documents from the city hall, and this booklet that will serves as ticket in the cinema. So, yesterday sister already gave a booklet to my mother. A friend told me that last week there was a long line of senior citizens waiting to receive their own booklet.

Anyway, thumbs up for this project. My mother used to watch movie with us or with her sister. Too bad her sister (my aunt) is not living in our place so she is excluded to receive this booklet. Good for my mother because she can now enjoy free movies and will save more money.

This booklet can be used twice a month (if I’m not mistaken). They are allowed to use the booklet anytime or any day except Wednesday (first day of showing) and during Holidays.

Mother is planning to use this booklet this weekend. She wants to watch This Guy’s in Love with you Mare (for sure you know this movie) starring Vice Ganda, Toni Gonzaga and Luis Manzano.

So, how to use this booklet?Just present the booklet  in the cinema. Let it sign by the in-charged and enjoy free movie.

Well, thanks to all who made this project. Definitely an early Christmas present especially to the senior citizens  of Lucena.

A Gentlemen's Dignity

I love Korean series but I don’t have the chance to watch any of them lately. I guess, it’s because my TV is acting weird already. I don’t want to watch Korean series online because for me its time consuming especially waiting for an episode to download. I’d rather buy DVD and watch all they long. 

Anyway, soon A Gentlemen’s Dignity will be airing on ABS-CBN. I heard the story of this Korean series is nice so hopefully I will have a chance to watch this.

Fun with Videoke

When my brother-in-law was still here in the Philippines he was the one who started videoke everytime there is celebration or even just an ordinary day. He loves to sing reason why all his children are also into music. Brother-in-law makes sure that he has musical accessories so that he will perform well. Blackstar Amplifiers at musicians friend is his regret because he doesn’t own one when he was still here in the country. But I don’t know if he already purchase one now that he is living abroad. Well, speaking of videoke I wasn’t sleep well the other day because the neighbor had fun with videoke all day long. It is fine if they sing nicely or they have amplifier so the sound is clear enough but none so it’s irritating.

New Jollibee meal

I’ve seen this new Jollibee meal in commercial a month ago (I think). But I only tried it last night. This snack has 2 wings, soda and regular french fries for 80 Php. The verdict, the taste was good just like the regular chicken they have. But the French fries, they were not crunchy already. Well, I should not complain because I ate the meal at home so for sure that’s the reason why the crunchiness of the fries lessen. Back to the chicken wing it became tastier because of sweet and chili sauce that also included in the meal. Absolutely, I will eat this snack again from Jollibee, so have you tried this meal?

New Year Trumpet

Time flies and we never know 2013 is here already. I look forward already on the day we will celebrate New Years Day. This is the time when our family usually gets together. We prepare lots of food during this time unlike Christmas. Aside from the food, trumpet and other things that produce sounds are always present to us during the celebration. This is the time we make fun, sing out loud, and create different sounds because we believe in this way luck comes next. Well, the coming New Year celebration I wish to use trumpet mouthpieces at wwbw and hoping this instrument will give us fortune especially in the coming year.

Loves playing as a bank teller

Everytime we are in the bank daughter likes to get bank transaction paper and write anything on that paper. At home, she loves acting like she is working in a bank. The last time she asked me if I could buy play money for her. So, yesterday I bought play money with some coins. She started to play when we got home. Insisting she’s the bank teller and I’m the client. I wonder if she will love the idea of having custom coins in our transaction or I’m thinking if I could use this as a present this coming holiday season.
