I have been faithfully using my uKimono these few days. Maybe I am scared…due to the binge eating of moon cakes during the Midautumn Festival this year. Can you imagine – I actually put on an extra 2 kg due to the moon cakes? 😱 Not to mention the unhealthy stuffs of salted egg yolks that went to my body. High cholesterol…and for a period of time, my health suffered much due to this high intake.
The same thing happened a few years ago. I bought aplenty of moon cakes. Really, what’s the love story I have with moon cakes? 😯 I just love moon cakes without hesitation. Well, I need to restrain myself from piling up on these cakes. I can’t conquer the whole world of moon cakes, can I? Gotta be realistic…😂😂😂

Oh my…current hottest favourite sageuk. I am simply hooked! Maybe because this drama depicts partial historical accounts of the family of the King Sejong (I admire him greatly!). While King Sejong is not a part of this drama, his father King Taejong is the core of this drama. Not a particularly good character. In fact, King Taejong is ruthless…to many. But well, what is good? What is evil? Must we do good in order not to be evil? Aren’t evil people being seen as good, more often than not? Being good embraces evil, acknowledges that evil remains. So it this good? And thus, it’s not about being good or evil. It’s being just. Chase for justice…get rid of evil…and this doesn’t mean you are good in the eyes of people.
So the ultimate question: Do we have to be good in order to be seen as good?
Having such Machiavellian thoughts. I am one. So I don’t care whether I am not being seen as good. In fact, I am fine if one wants to see or label me as bad. It truly doesn’t matter. Why? Because I subscribe to my true conscience. And such a conscience doesn’t require validation from anyone.
Back to the sageuk. Tremendous. I have always loved the Koreans dramatisation of their historical dynasties. It’s a bond I feel stronger than being labelled a Chinese of this period. I don’t know…just like how I really admire their King Sejong. Well, I want to make a trip to South Korea again…just for historical trip. I am only interested in their historical aspects.
For now, amongst my buzzing busy times, I am hooked on the dragons. Maybe I should watch Sungkyunkwan Scandal again. Yea, I know that drama is a few years old now. But I should watch that again, shouldn’t I? 😄
Ask myself, what I like…hmm…💖
Hear my heart, and I will follow you 🍀
