K drama App by X-Reve

Korean addict like me always find a way to watch Korean drama whenever and wherever you are. I used to watch Kdrama on dramacool but their site had issues so I searched other sites. There are many apps that you could watch Korean and other Asian series online and most of them are free. But you need to get premium account to enjoy full access.

I decided to get this K drama app by X-Reve because the app is very easy to use. You don’t need to register and use the app right away after you download in your mobile device. They have wide selection of Korean drama but you need internet or wifi connection in order to watch. I just hope they will have the option to download episode so I could watch even offline.

Viu is another app but unlike the app above you need to register. You can also download episode but limited to one episode. You need to delete after you watch it and download another episode which I don’t like. Two episodes would be fine but as I said limited to one. But you have the option to get premium account and download multiple episodes and watch them even offline.

Well, I prefer the app that I am currently using because it is free. We have good internet connection so watching is not a dilemma. I still hope that they will update the app and come up with the option to download episode so I could watch offline.

People Who Care

Being around a group of Christian women can be soothing and encouraging for your mind and body. You are around people who have the same religious views that you have and who will likely be interested in the same walks of life. A Christian women workshop is one where you can spend a few hours or a few days with a group of people as you study your Bible and listen to speakers. There is also time for small group sessions and fellowship. Many churches offer workshops that you can attend with your own group of friends or a group of ladies from your church if you don’t attend the host location.

When you’re at a workshop for women, you will be around people who will usually talk just as much as you do, which might be something that you don’t get to experience at home or at work. This is a chance for you to express the feelings that you have and to share your life stories with people who are experiencing some of the same things that you do each day. You won’t need to explain any of the emotions that you’re experiencing or any mood swings that you might have while at the workshop. There is likely food involved, so you won’t have to cook. You can also find someone who wants to share a meal or a dessert so that you can enjoy the taste of the foods that you like without feeling guilty about eating the entire dish.

As your sharing your story, the other people you’re talking to won’t be involved on their phones. They will be focused on listening to you so that they can learn from what you’ve been through or focused on offering suggestions about what you can do about your situations.

4 Great Gifts For Someone You Love

It can be tough to find the perfect gift, especially if you’re trying to avoid generic ones like cards, flowers and chocolates. Here are some gift ideas that are both compelling and unique!

1. Novelty Mugs

Novelty mugs come in all shapes and sizes, so you can definitely find something that suits your friend’s interests. For example, if they like a particular TV show, you can buy them a mug with a snappy character quote painted on it. If they enjoy animals, you can buy them a mug with a handle shaped like a tiger’s tail or an elephant’s trunk. The possibilities are endless.

2. Food

Who doesn’t love a gift that you can eat? You’ll need to make sure that you don’t trigger any allergies, of course, but as long as you have a basic idea of what your friend likes to munch on, you should be able to find a food-related gift that suits them. Think about things like spices, snack bags, meat rubs, veggie platters and fine wines.

3. Art Supplies

If your friend is an artist, something like specialty paintbrushes or high-quality sketchpads can show them that you support their creative endeavors. Even if they aren’t a natural Picasso, however, they can still have fun with things like watercolor sets, pottery wheels and adult coloring books. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. Everyone deserves a chance to spread the wings of their imagination.

4. Gift Basket

Gift baskets are great when you want to combine the elements of several different gifts into one. For example, if your friend is a movie lover, you can stuff a basket with DVDs, popcorn, candy and nacho ingredients. If they’re a puzzle fiend, you can put multiple jigsaws into a single basket. Gift baskets are fun, friendly and versatile enough to suit any occasion.

These are just a few gifts that will bring a smile to the face of your loved one. Whether you’re planning a birthday, anniversary or general celebration, use these ideas to show someone how much that you care.

Fashionably Safe Styles for the Biker in all of Us

Whether you and your guy are new to riding or you have been traveling the country on two wheels for years, it is important to dress in clothing that is both fashionable and safe. Safety always takes top priority, but this doesn’t mean you have to look like a crash test dummy. Use the following suggestions in order to ride in style.

The Basics

Your basic clothing should be comfortable, but there are limits. Riding down the highway in shorts and flip flops is never a good idea. Pants should be long. Jeans are best because of the durability denim provides. Your shoes are one of your most important pieces of gear next to the helmet. Make sure they cover your ankle and offer good support like eagle footwear does.

Outerwear

Outerwear keeps you warm and helps protect you if there were to be an accident. Leather is your best friend. It will keep you from becoming scraped up if you go down, and it is nice and warm. Don’t worry about getting overheated. You’ll feel chilled on a bike even on a warm spring day. Outerwear should include a jacket with vents, chaps, and a good pair of gloves that provide warmth without restricting the movement of your fingers.

The Extras

There are certain articles of clothing that you need to have with you on your ride that you may not necessarily need when you head out. First on the list is a good rain suit. The dollar rain ponchos just won’t cut it. Have a one piece suit or a jacket with pants that doesn’t let water in at the waist. Many include gloves and boot covers to ensure complete dryness.

Having the proper gear for your next ride will keep you safe and comfortable. Knowing the right pieces to have, and how to keep a stylish look in the process, is key to looking and feeling terrific wherever the road takes you.

Going Dancing

If dancing is a passion of yours or your child’s, then it is important to find the right dance studio in order to cultivate and pursue that passion. A quality dance school is going to make it much easier to enjoy dancing, versus a poor quality studio that will have you struggling. This article will take a look at some of the things you will want to consider as you peruse your options of some of the best dance schools in miami.

What Does the Schedule Look Like?

Scheduling is important for a couple reasons. The first is that you want to make sure there are classes available for you when you are able to attend. If you work a day job and the studio closes at 4 pm, it is likely not a great option for you.

The second reason schedule is important is because it can tell you how classes are grouped and what the variety of lessons includes. A more varied schedule may work better if you aren’t sure what style you want to learn. Conversely, if you already know where your passion lies, this could make it easier to pick a school.

Touring the Studio

This step can give you a lot of insight on the studio itself. Things you should look for are either live music to accompany lessons or a quality sound system that can be adjusted as needed during your lesson. You should also evaluate the friendliness and approachability of the staff and teachers, and inquire about the experience level of those teachers. Lastly, check your floors. Ideally, you want a floating floor with a Marley finish that makes it easier on your body and joints and can help prevent injuries.

Hopefully, this guide helped give you an idea of some of the things you should look for if dancing is your passion. Dance schools should be clean and safe, with well-qualified instructors to assist you. They should also have a schedule that fits yours. Lastly, your school should have a comfortable atmosphere.

Blueberry Muffin

My sister brought this Belly Crocker ready-made blueberry muffin mix from Canada when they visited us last Christmas.


I just baked it today after 7 months hiding in the closet. This is small pack so I only got 6 muffins. This one is easy to bake I wonder why I didn’t bake it before. I said easy to bake because you only need a cup of water or milk. Simply add water or milk (I used fresh milk) to this blueberry flavoured muffin mix and you’re ready to go.

I preheated oven to 200 degrees Celsius and baked for 20 minutes. It turned out delicious although they are using artificial flavor but the smell was good while baking. My daughter ate this when she came back from school. It became soft after few more hours.

Even if you’re watching what you eat and the products you use, are you doing everything you can to help protect the planet and its wildlife? Some people just don’t think about the harmful chemicals found in many hair care products. While they’re safe for people, some products can be destructive to plant life or may harm smaller forms of wildlife.

Since botanical products are made from natural ingredients, they’ll be healthier for your hair and scalp, too.

Additionally, botanical products can eliminate the allergic reactions you may commonly have to commercial hair products.

Now, they’re discovering that nature does offer alternatives and that a variety of herbs can provide the same benefits as commercially manufactured products.

Yes, even hair dyes can be produced from natural and safe products. By obtaining the ingredients from herbs, dyes can be created to produce all natural hair color safely for the user and safer for the environment. Also, herbs can create a variety of colors that are just as vibrant as those offered by commercial brands.

As products sourced from natural ingredients, botanical hair products are better for pregnant or breastfeeding women. They can even be used more safely on children, minimizing the risk of an allergic reaction. Specifically, hair products created with natural herbs are free of harmful ingredients, such as ammonia, peroxide, and PPD, or Paraphenylenediamine.

So, when you need new hair care products, consider going a more natural root. Botanical products are better for your hair, eliminating the damage that adding too many chemicals can cause. They’re also better for the environment, because you’re reducing the amount of chemicals that are dumped into the eco-system. Whether you do it for yourself or for the earth, switching to botanical hair care products will help you live healthier and help you look your best.

Meteor Garden 2018

My Korean drama addiction started when I first watched Taiwanese Meteor Garden way back 2003 aired on ABS CBN.  Everyone was hooked with this drama. Because of Meteor Garden I got to know Kdrama, Meteor Garden wasn’t Kdrama but this drama introduced me to Asian drama.

Last night while watching ABS CBN program, they showed teaser of the remake of Meteor Garden. Good to know ABS CBN will air the remake of Meteor Garden anyway they are the one who opened us to Asian drama. There’s no release date yet but for sure I will watch this drama. I just hope I will meet my expectation because even 15 years had passed I still love the original Meteor Garden. I have watched this for many times without being  bored.

I’m looking forward to the new cast led by  Shen Yue as Shan Cai. Playing the iconic F4 this time around are Dylan Wang as Dao Ming Si, Darren Chen as Hua Ze Lei, Connor Leong as Mei Zuo and Caesar Wu as Xi Men.  I heard the show was already airing in China. My niece said they already watching it in Netflix.

This Chinese version is being produced by the original creator of “Meteor Garden,” Angie Chai. As with previous iterations, it will be based off the Japanese manga, “Hana Yori Dango.”

Three Unique Bachelor Party Ideas

When it comes to planning the perfect bachelor party, men sometimes need a little bit of guidance. Rather than succumbing to the stereotypical Vegas-style party to celebrate the groom-to-be in your life, try organizing something a little more unique. Here are three ideas that are sure to thrill your guests and jump-start your planning.

Plan a Golf Outing

Golf is the perfect bachelor party activity. The future groom can show off his putting skills while members of his party get to know each other. In addition to spending time on the green, a golf outing allows you to enjoy a delicious lunch, as well as a few drinks. This is the perfect way to ease into a night out on the town later in the day.

Go Hunting

Another great idea for a bachelor party is to plan a hunting trip. By booking through an establishment such as Cedar Knoll Hunting Lodge, you will receive accommodation along with expert guidance. They even have staff who can assist with hunting for beginners, for the less experienced hunters in your group. This sort of getaway provides the perfect bachelor party experience for all men.

Enjoy Rest and Relaxation

There is no way you can go wrong with planning time for rest and relaxation. While men like to seem tough and uninterested in being pampered, this is just a facade. The perfect way to end a bachelor party trip is by scheduling some time for everyone to get massages at a local spa. You can even plan time for male pedicures if your groom is interested.

With these ideas in mind, you cannot go wrong when planning your upcoming bachelor party. Step outside of the box and plan something that the future groom in your life won’t soon forget!
