A New Year & A Little Eye Candy

Happy New Year everyone! May your 2016 be filled with infinite happiness, good health and good fortune, lots of laughter, adventures and delicious treats! 2015 had some high and lows but was overall a pretty good year as I became further removed from some health issues and was able to move forward in some other areas as I started saying yes to many more invites and opportunities. I hope you all enjoyed your holidays. We had one of the warmest Christmases on record in NYC and it was definitely nice. We've been making the most of it and getting out and enjoying it before winter really arrives. Yes we did go and watch Star Wars. We also took care of some projects around the house and got a jump on our cleaning for Chinese New Year which is on February 8 this year. Last year we ended up binge watching the Korean drama Misaeng and this year we caught up on Oh My Venus which is a pretty formulaic rom com but it does have Shin Min Ah and So Ji Sub as it's stars. These two had some incredible chemistry (see below) when they were paired up in ads for the Giordano clothing brand and they do look really good together but it was recently revealed that Min Ah is dating her current ad partner Kim Woo Bin.

One of the supporting characters is Joon Sung, a ward of So Ji Sub's character played by Sung Hoon. This is the first time I've seen him and he reminds me a little of Hong Kong actor Bosco Wong. Anyway he portrays a UFC fighter who goes by the name Korean Snake. I find this a little implausible considering how tall and lanky he is which is not the typical body type for those athletes. Either way his recent editorial for Sure magazine was smoldering.

Well lucky New Yorkers, it's been freezing cold in SF. I caught up on cleaning my house too, almost haha. Looks like Chinese new year will be early, thanks for the heads up. Happy New Year to you.

I'm currently watching OMV too and that Korean snake guy is definitely an eye candy :3

Hope you're having a wonderful start of 2016!


Happy New Year! It sounds like you've already done some things to prepare for the New Year with cleaning and such. We just saw Star Wars on the weekend, and I still have a week of holiday so I'm enjoying that at the moment. Have a lovely weekend.

Happy Happy New Year to you, Rowena!

Started spring cleaning already?! Oh dear, I am having this impending "fear" already for that, haha *_^ Am so happy to hear that some health issues have been resolved for you and that you are enjoying some sunshine warmness back in NYC, considering how much I know you prefer the warmth over the snow... heeehee

Oh, I am also watching Oh My Venus now, simply because of the two leads. Yes, I do have to agree with you, pretty formulaic (like most korean dramas), but I wonder why there are still millions out there keep on watching them? (Me super guilty of it!!), perhaps someone should seriously write a thesis on Korean dramas and why are they so hugely popular and addictive despite the formulated structure and predictiveness to them (I was just talking to hubby about this one earlier this morning in the car!)

Yup, he does look kinda cute here in these editorials. Nice picks. Hope you are already having a great start to 2016! Am sure it will be getting very exciting for you there since you are attending more events *_^

Have a lovely new week ahead, Rowena.

With love,

Happy New Year, dear Rowena! Thank you so much for your kind wishes, hope you also had a good time! We had a very warm Christmas here too, but today it snowed and now everything is covered with snow and it's a bit cold. So, you saw Star Wars? Hmm, I am not really a big fan of it, but my boyfriend says it's good. What do you think? Wishing you a wonderful 2016!

P.S.: Thanks for the eye-candy photos! They are so damn good!;)
