Here’s one of my favorite OST of all time. It’s Really Want to Say Hello by M to M from the drama Lie to Me starring Yoon Eun Hye and Kang Ji Hwan. I enjoyed watching the drama and I thought they make a great couple. Anybody remember that cola kiss? Mad mad mad mad. I remember squeaking from watching that scene. This song brought so much memories from the drama I had goosebumps listening to it. It just came to me suddenly today. I’m so bored right now. While I’m at it, should I make my very own top 10 drama OST?
I’m on a roller coaster that only goes up, my friend
My favorite quote from John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars can be found on page 11
Right before the day I leave for KK, I went to Kinokuniya with my family who came to KL for two reasons, to help me haul my belongings from my college since I was finished with my foundation, and also with vacation ulterior motive; the latter being the main reason. I am always excited whenever I visit Kinokuniya as I was a huge fan of bookstores, what with it being the largest in Malaysia and for the fact that you don’t find any bookstore as complete as Kinokuniya in KK. Which suck balls to be completely honest.
Anyways I bought quite a lot of books courtesy of the book vouchers we all got from the government. Yay to freebies! I’m glad I spent all 200 bucks on books cause I was really contemplating whether or not I should use a huge chunk of it to buy me a new external hard disk (my brother’s friend bought a freaking guitar using the voucher in Eaton) which I seriously thought I need as my laptop’s already almost full with k-dramas, variety shows etc but in the end I did not.
By then my books were already piling up since I had lots of them stacked in my locker, unread from the Big Bad Wolf book sale in Mines that I visited with Iche during the Christmas 2012 break. How can I not, it was mad cheap! I bought Mitch Albom’s For One More Time that I have always been eyeing ever since I saw it being featured on Oprah for 5 bucks when its retail price is 40 bucks. Still, I gotta say my most successful purchase was Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 book set which I bought for 10 bucks when its retail price was more than 100 bucks. Isn’t that crazy bargain?
Recently I’m into John Green’s works. I read two of his books so far, Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars. TFIOS got me at page 11, that exact quote that I took photo of above. I also found out they are in the process of making a movie out of it, which I’m both excited and disturbed about. People would quote stuffs from the movie without even reading the book, just like what happened to The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Also for a fact that movie based book always disappoint, just like Norwegian Wood (although Kenichi Matsuyama was a pleasure to look at PLUS surpass the Toru Watanabe that I imagined in my mind while reading NW and the fact that I was a huge huge fan of Kiko Mizuhara). It’s a shame that John Green books are hard to find in KK, if any.
That’s it for the first post. I know an entry about books is a tad too random, paragraphs of it at that. I just felt like rambling about it cause I’ve been reading a lot to fill my free time, aside from the obligatory k-dramas and whatnot.
ps The entry’s title is an intended pun of check it out, whereby the Korean character ‘책’, pronounced as chaek, actually means book in Korean.
