For Beautiful Skin, I Swallow

LG* uses this tagline for its skin supplement Pycnoskin. A lot of skin beautifying products are out in the market but I would still trust organically-based supplements, especially those that I take in my body. Being extracted from French Pine bark, Pycnoskin is one of these.

Since I'm based here in Korea, procuring Pycnoskin is no big deal. I've been taking it for more than three months already and I've noticed that my skin has become more transparent and glowing. I also feel more vigorous. I would not have believed that Pycnoskin does effect positive changes to my skin had my friends--and they're quite a lot of them--not compliment me for what they see.

If you'd like to try Pycnoskin for yourself, just pm me. I can PM you the price and shipping details. One bottle contains 54 capsules, 2 capsules a day.

*Yes, you've read it right. In Korea, LG is such a huge conglomerate that has expanded to virtually all manufacturing sectors, from technology to food and medicine.

Be Careful what You Wish for..

My wish has been fulfilled by my inaction and the force of uncontrollable circumstances, and to the detriment of everyone including myself. Had I acted, things would have just been the same, although in a different vein through which the blood of anger and malice would still run through.
The thought I toyed in my head has come true. It's as if as the wish master had listed to me, that evil jin! How could he have managed to listen to the deepest, shadowy recess of my soul and turn the benign whispers into a heartbreaking cacophonous shout? I don't know. But I'm certain I heard pure despair and it rent everyone's heart, some more than the others. Everyone bleeds.

Your wish. The forces around. The jin. Before they come together, silence the darkness in your soul.

Online Shopping in Korea

On this material peninsula, shopping is a must. Offline and online cart pushing are equally enjoyable. I usually buy from Gmarket and it never fails. The delivery period takes 2-3 days on the average and there was no instance when I wasn't satisfied with what I paid for.
Gmarket, however, started to appear humdrum for me as it was my virtual house since 2007. I started looking for alternative websites when I encountered this page, which lists the top online shopping sites for men in Korea. Paradise! =^_^=

K-pop, K-ballad Translation

어떤 그리움을

그대를 바라보면 포근함을 느꼈지
I feel warmth when I gaze at you
아직도 나에게 남아있는 그대의 모습
A reflection lingers inside of me
나의 마음 고요하게 해
and it quiets my heart.

지나간 기억속에 그대 모습 생각나
Your traces I remember, the memories in the past
견딜수가 없는 혼자만의 외로움들이
This unbearable feeling of solitude
나의 마음 허무하게 해
My heart yearns in vain.

*언젠가 그대는
눈물을 흘리며 내게 말했었지
There was a time when you told me your tears flowed down
사랑은 슬픈 이별보다 아픈 거라고
They say loving is more difficult than a sad goodbye.
하지만 내 님 떠나고 이젠 나홀로남아
But even if you go and I'm left here all alone
그대의 앞길 비추네
Your light still remains. (Your light shines down on my path)


Just drop me an email if you want a song translated and I'll post it here.
