Aussie here I come

Posted by Carrie Ang 0 comments Links to this post
Without realising...how time flies...It has been 5 months since I came back from my backpack trip from Seoul Korea! And in two weeks time, I'll be flying again for my second oversea trip this year. This time.... Australia! Owhhh...love this feeling~~~ ㅎㅁㅎ

Well, nope..I'm not that rich. This trip was totally sponsored by my aunt who is staying there. So my flight & accommodation and transportation will be well covered during my 1.5 weeks stay there. Not to mention the food there! I misses the big portion FISH & CHIPS. It's been nearly 12 years since last I've been there; and I'm coming back soon! Feels like home..Yay! =)

네! 맞아요.. You read it right, Korean SMSes!! Bet most of us - "Non-Koreans"; would have the same thoughts on these...How Koreans send their SMSes or to be precise what does a certain abbreviation stands for. Bet most of the times our SMSes will look like these: LOL, LMAO, hehe, haha, BRB, TTYL, etc....
Recently, I got to learn more on this topic & had a rapid test though TTMIK. Thanks Guys! ^^

Let's go guys..가자! Learn some EMOTIONS! =)

We often find laughter the most in our SMSes (haha, hehe, keke, etc..), it's no different here as well. Notice this ㅋㅋㅋ before?!

아저씨 Ajosshi (feat. J Rabbit) Kim Jin Pyo Lyrics English Translation

Posted by Carrie Ang 0 comments Links to this post
My first try into translating a Korean song
Hope you enjoy the song, as it's about a young girl's crush for a way elder guy! =)
A super cute song (>^.^<)
But for most of the rap part, it's using a symbolic term to emphasis on the age difference between a young girl and an older man.

Click here for the Korean Hangul Lyrics --> Hangul Lyrics

English Translation Lyrics

Sir, that feels weird, as I'm not sure what's wrong with my heart
My heart is beating fast as I'm thinking about it again
Sir, I love you but could you wait for awhile
As that's just some time that you are not rushing for

How do you want me to say so that you could understand me
How many times do I have to say it
The age difference between you & me is like Suzhou & milk of 42
When I'm asking for "Haejangguk", you may think of it as Apple pie (symbolize the difference maturity thinking as the age gap are big. *Haejangguk is a Korean Hangover soup*)
You are like a little child thru a normal guys eyes
One got to be of the same age
You are still very young, pretty girl wake up
Now for god's sake, try to control yourself

Sir, what should I do? If it can't be done this way
This flustered feeling is not what I'm looking for
Sir, why can't it be so? Please re-consider again
Is it so wrong that I'm still a kid

I don't have Tteokbokki nor popcorn
I don't go for Romantic movies, but Billards
Think about it, what the hell would you do with me
What would you tell others
Should we talk about stocks? Or Baseball? Or cars?
Girls Generation? Yeah!! This is what I do
What surprise me the most is your mom
I still think this is a mistake

Maybe you think that
But I'm not the prince charming that you are looking for
I'm not even a white horse nor the Saint of time
Please let's just stop right here
Oh mama this is probably just drama
Be patient & one day you will understand me
I also want to tell it and meet it
Probably I shouldn't think about it

Repeat **
When You're studying ABC, I'm already with my PC assembling
In fact, I know that others don't do that
You're my little girl & my all
When you're in your DoReMi lesson, I've already graduated from Czerny lesson
In fact, I know that others don't do that
You are just a girl & also just a little kid to me

I too am not sure why am I acting this way
But now, please open your mind to a more sincere me

Repeat *
Well that's just ridiculous
(Sir) Can't Can't
(My feelings) This is so ridiculous
No, please snap out of this
I won't do this (Sir)

Here for the term "Ajosshi" I'm using a more polite term as "Sir". Normally Koreans relate the term to an elder guy or what we known as "Uncle".

아저씨 (Ajosshi) = Uncle / Sir
떡볶이 (Tteokbokki) = Korean Rice cake
해장국 (Haejangguk) = Korean Hangover Soup
소녀시대 (SoNyoShiDae) = SNSD / Girls Generation
애플파이 (Aepeulpai) = Apple Pie
왕자님 (Wangjanim) = Prince

So guys! What's your view/thought on a 아저씨??
Could it be like this you are thinking about?
Or this? 
Or simply this? My fav "immature" 아저씨.  =)
Ji Won 아저씨!!ㅎㅎㅎㅎ...ㅋㅋㅋ  ^^

Super easy way to add a Korean vocab with Direct English translation

Posted by Carrie Ang 0 comments Links to this post
여러분 안녕하세요! Hello Everyone!

Just have the sudden urge to practice on my Hangul again. Well I may not be perfect as I've just started learning to read the language earlier this year around April. And being a full time staff I don't really have the time to really focus on studying as I'm self-taught. ^^

So just a few hours (maybe 1-2 hours or so) per week for me to learn Hangul is all it takes for me. But for those who wanted to learn the language but don't have the time..don't fret about it. As a person's "Interest" can be a very important weapon for learning.

Ohya, being of Chinese descendant does gives you an added advantage to grasp the Korean language better as most of the Korean words have similar pronunciation as the Chinese Characters.Well, being a Native English speaker it's not bad as well as we also has its ups as some of the Korean words are direct translation of the English words itself!!

Would love to share a few Vocab I've learned throughout these months....Well I may not be of the best out there but some simple ones are still pretty fresh in my mind. Here are some Direct-English translation words for the readers out there. ^^

Korean Vocab of the day
아이스크림 (a-ee-su-k'e-rim) = Ice-Cream
오토바이 (o-tto-ba-ee) = Motorbike
바나나 (ba-na-na) = Banana
치킨 (chi-k'in) = Chicken (Well this is not the right word thou.. as Koreans usually refer 치킨 to fried chicken or something that's already "eatable" *my bad for the Manglish used here* ^^) Life chicken is called 닭 (dalg)
카메라 (k'a-me-ra) = Camera
립스틱 (lip-su-tik) = Lipstick
히터 (hi-tto) = Heater
핸드폰 (haen-du-pun) = Handphone is what Koreans called a Mobile phone (same goes for Malaysians as well)
축구 (chu-gu) = Soccer
차 (cha) = Car [To be precise 차 is car & 자동차 (cha-dong-cha) is Auto-mobile] so both can be used
팀 (tim) = Team

Happy Learning Guys!~♥  =)

언젠가 날 이해하게 될 꺼야 참고 또 참아

암만 생각해도 이건 진짜 아니잖아

Repeat **

넌 내게 그저 어린 아이 일 뿐인걸

ojjom geudae irohkedo nareul mollajunayo
어쩜 그대 이렇게도 나를 몰라주나요
ije jomdo soljikhi naege maeumeul yoroyo
이제 좀더 솔직히 내게 마음을 열어요

Repeat *

o igonn jongmal maldo andwae
어 이건 정말 말도 안돼

(아저씨) 안돼 안돼

(내 맘이) 이건 말도 안돼 
heundeullimyon andwae jebal jongshincharyo
흔들리면 안돼 제발 정신차려 
jongmal irom andwae (ajosshi)
정말 이럼 안돼 (아저씨)

PS: For the English Translation, I'll try to do it in the future as there's a few rap parts I still can't get the hang on it. Just learning that's why...keke...so bare with my "weak" language.. ^^
The English Translation are done --> 아저씨 English Translation

제이레빗 (J Rabbit) New Indie group

Posted by Carrie Ang 0 comments Links to this post
As K-POP is so popular in Asia and now in pretty much all around the world, there are other good Korean singers not just constraint from JYP, SM, YG Entertainment groups. I’d like to introduce this new Indie Group, J Rabbit, 제이레빗 and share their music with you.

Well, actually they are not entirely a new group; but I just recently stumble across their songs & immediately been sucked into their music with just her lovely soothing voice. 
J Rabbits
J Rabbit began uploading videos to YouTube as one of the units in friendz.net in November 2010. A few digital singles were released, and then came first full-length album It’s Spring which soon went out of print. The two girls and friendz.net have since gained even more popularity, and now they’re back with second full-length album Looking Around.

WHO is J Rabbit 제이레빗???
J Rabbit is women duo group - One girl is playing all the instruments while the other one sings **BTW her voice is amazing!**  In their album, it’s not all about love songs, but are mainly about life. The timbre of the vocal is so clean, refreshing and amazing. The song itself is beautiful and her vocal makes the whole album ever so special.

Let me introduce all to their latest featured song entitled "Ahjussi 아저씨" that they are featured in with Kim Jin Pyo. Also my fav!
A way too cute song to be true!!  =)

So a YAY or a NAY for them? Definitely a YAY from me! Way to go girls!!

JYP Nation upcoming concert rehearsal

Posted by Carrie Ang 0 comments Links to this post

The Highly anticipated concert is around the corner! WooHoo!! Go Go JYP Nation! =) 

With just a few days left to go before the upcoming JYP Nation concert, the JYP Entertainment artists are practicing hard to ensure a successful concert. Ahead of the concert, JYP Entertainment released new photos of the JYP artists rehearsing together for their special collaboration stages. 

JYP Entertainment shared a slew of behind-the-scenes photos of the artists hard at work with allkpop to give fans a glimpse into the family-like atmosphere. Included are cuts of the members working together for their collaboration stages, such as Sohee playing around with Junsu, and Junho and Seulong taking a break in a corner of the room together.
Junho showed a playful side by taking a photo with Sun‘s puppy while J.Y. Park can be seen working on new songs at the keyboard at any spare moment. JJ Project looks as if they’re flying about the room during their rehearsal cuts with the same youthful energy they’re known for on stage.

JYP Entertainment expressed, “All of the JYP artists are working hard with one heart with just days left until the concert. There are a lot more of various stages planned compared to last year, so we encourage everyone to anticipate it.”

The JYP Nation concert will take place on August 4th at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium. Owh how I wish I'm there! And let me say that Olympic Park is a great place as I went there before! =)
How to get to Olympic Park?! HERE
