What to do in Kyoto? (2)

You might want to start the other day by traveling to Nijo Castle, which is a place for a Shogun lived during Edo period. It is the place where the first shogun of the period, Tokugawa Ieyasu lived.
Here, not only you get to roam around the palace to see how the palace looks like, they even demonstrate various rooms to let you see what does a Shogun daily routine looks like. You can let your imagination flew back to the Edo period, imagining you were the one who visit the Shogun at that time. But too bad the rooms for demonstrating the daily routine cannot be photograph. T-T
Aside from the building where Shogun's daily routine takes place, you also be able to walk around the garden, and some kind of square-shaped pool which surrounds the main building inside the castle. The weather was nice for a walk when I was there.
And, you will be able to find some hidden tea house cafes around this garden area, as well as a rest area and toilet area.
From here, you can take buses which will takes you directly to the bus stop which located just across the Kinkakuji Area, a famous zen temple which is said to be covered out of gold. The entrance ticket looks super unique here, and it is said that it can be a good luck amulet, so you might want to keep it in your bag. ^^
Kinkakuji (or the Golden Pavilion) is a zen buddhist temple, located nearby a small lake which surrounds the temple. What's famous about this place is the top two floor of the temple is being covered by gold leaf, which makes it look astonishing. =D There're lots of visitors here, so you might want to slip here and there to find the perfect spot for your photo.
Though it is know to be a zen buddhist temple, the origin of this building started when Shogun Yoshimitsu purchased it and transformed it to a complex. It's only after Yoshimitsu passed away that his son turn the complex into a zen temple in year 1408, according to Yoshimitsu's wishes.

Miryang Gang Rape = Signal's Last Unsolved Case?

If you're a fan of this Korean drama, Signal, which obviously I am then you would know that they're on their last case which tells about a gang rape which happens in a small city, Inju. A lot of people has been debating on whether this case is based on true events which happens back in Miryang in 2004. And once again the case which happened 12 years ago is getting people's attention.

Seoul Plastic Surgery : Real Story for Breast Augmentation~ Operasi Plastik di Korea : Pembesaran Payudara~

I have always wanted a glamorous body. I have a flat chest, which makes me feel inferior when I have to go to the beach with a bunch of friends, where my friends wear beautiful bikini, while I'm only able to take a look and feel envy of it.
Dr. Kim Dong Gyu is one of the best korean surgeon in breast surgery, and can be considered as top breast surgeon in Korea. Dr. Kim is stationed in Izien Plastic Surgery Hospital, which has won several Customer Satisfaction Awards since 2011 up to 2014. This make me feel more comfortable to have the surgery here. Since I decided to go on with the surgery, the nurses took me to the 3rd floor for a blood sample, so you can see a bandage on my hand when I took my before pictures. ^^
The surgeon gives a very detailed consultation on my current breast problem, how he will do the surgery and what type of implants he will be using. I was amazed by how patient he is to answer my questions 1 by 1, as you knew that many Korean Surgeons are very impatient…

[Review] on The King's Woman

Since the Korean Drama has been very disappointing lately. There are no good K-Dramas to watch lately, so I started to drooling over Chinese Drama titled the 'Princess Agent' which is played by the super famous Chinese actress, Zhao Li Ying, but again the drama is so disappointing with the lack of acting skill of the main actor, then a confusing story line which gets us to no where, and an end which ended without any conclusion at all! Then, I stumbled into this drama, which just started to air like 3 weeks ago, and still have another 30 episodes to go. Despite the cliche plot just like every other Chinese ancient imperial palace drama, this drama is likeable. At first I started to watch because the main girl, Dilraba Dilmurat, is super pretty and the trailer which has been go on like weeks is super awesome. The stories is about love stories of King of Qin and this pretty girl, which of course a fictional story. If you don't know who he is, King of Qin is the one who conq…
