Book review: Cheeky Romance (Kim Eun Jeong)

Usually I review dramas but I want to try review books sometimes. Well, Im going to review anything I like. This novel is the third book of Kim Eun Jeong, written in Korean but translated to Indonesian. The first book is So I Married The Antifan and followed up by My Boyfriend's Wedding Dress. I always hated translated novel because the feeling is just different when I read Indonesian novels and maybe the setting is different. When I tried to read her first book, it's good although I was confused at the beginning since too many characters were appearing at the same time. Then I also read her second book which made me amused again and now Im one of her avid fans. This book tells about a woman named Yoo Chae who has always been unlucky as a reporter. She never get any scheduled programs although she has worked for 2 years and the worst is her boyfriend, a reporter too, cheats on her with his senior who is a PD (program director). So Yoon Pyo, her lover-to-be, is a devoted obstetrician. He always care every pregnant woman although they are not his patients. Yoo Chae ever went to the hospital where Yoon Pyo works to accompany her bestfriend unnie who is pregnant. One day, she was told to be a MC for a culinary program to suburb where she will try new foods. This program is airing live. At that time, Yoon Pyo is happened to be at the same restaurant where they are shooting. She was given fugu fish (as you know it's dangerous to be eaten if not being cleaned properly) and red beans. Yoon Pyo thought she was pregnant because he ever saw her at the hospital and those foods are dangerous for pregnant woman. He yelled at her not knowing that the program is aired live. Soon Yoo Chae is known as 'Nation's pregnant woman' and Yoon Pyo as 'Nation's doctor'. The story will involve around how they settle their misunderstanding and as usual fall in love with each other. This is a 400+ pages book but you wont get bored of it. I like the storyline a lot. The writer is good at making their loveline not awkward because I often find some books are written weirdly in developing lovelines of the characters. I've read her books long time before her books are famous like now. Both of them are bestsellers in Indonesia's bookstore and Cheeky Romance is indeed very recommended.

Drama review: Reply 1997

I've just finished watching this drama a few minutes ago and all I could say is I like this drama a lot. I always envy anyone who has their childhood friends as their first love and then got married. This drama does it that way. At first I was bored when I watched the first episode but I managed to continue watching it after listening to my friend's suggestion. It's about a group of friends consist of 2 girls and 4 boys in their high school time at Busan. The plot is going back and forth from 1997 to 2012. They give the hint about the ending but it wont be understand unless you've watched the last episode. Sung Shi Won (Jung Eun Ji) and Yoon Yoon Jae (Seo In Guk) are childhood friends. Their fathers are bestfriend but later on Yoon Jae's father died and left only he and his brother then Shi Won's parents start taking care of them. Shi Won is a devoted fan of H.O.T and his father hates it a lot. The story will involve on their high school life and their future meeting where they're holding a reunion. Another trouble come when Yoon Jae's brother also likes Shi Won. One of its plus point is they use Busan dialect in this drama while usually korean dramas are using Seoul accent. Many people also praise Seo In Guk and Eun Ji because their acting are really good although this is their first drama. Reply 1997 is really cute and innocent and the most important is realistic which is possible to happen in real life. How I wish I have this kind of story *sobs*

This drama will focus on the extreme fan culture that emerged in the 1990s when idol groups took center stage and K-pop was blossoming. It tells the story of 6 former high school friends from a school in Busan who meet again in 2012 and brings back memories to 1997 when they were still high school students. Moving back and forth between the ’90s and today, the story centers on the life of Sung Shi Won (Jung Eun Ji), who idolizes boyband H.O.T and her 5 high school friends.

Note: dont be shock when you search about the rating. It's only 4-5% but it's equal to 25-30% on basic channels. This drama aired in a cable tv and the rating is consider really high since usually cable tv drama is only 1-2%.

End of Blok 1.1

Block 1.1 has officially ended by today. This morning I had my last exam for the first block which is presentation continued by a mini interview. I was not sure Im going to make it good since Im terribly bad at doing presentation. Im also not that optimistic because my result in yesterday's CBT exam was bad. But a small conversation with mom and dad are always helpful. They told me to be relax and just tell everything I know as smooth as I can. The method of today's exam is presentation one by one and then the one who had finished must wait inside the room so the last to enter will have 9 students and 1 tutor watching him/her. Im lucky to be the first one which means only the tutor watching me. I thought Im okay with the presentation and I can answer all the questions. I want a good mark for the first block ㅋㅋ Im ready for the second block!

Exam is approoaaaaaaachingg really soon and Im curious how it will be. As you know, im back to my old habits: watching korean dramas! Even though medical students have a very packed schedule, I still try to watch drama and after almost 2 months without any dramas in my life, I got to watch it this week! Should I say it yayness? No because I watch it when exam is approaching and im crazy over it ㅠㅠ Im currently watching Nice Guy starring Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won. It's episode 12 this week and I've watched that hahaha! It still has a month left airing time which made me quite pissed off because im curious about the ending. I will make the review as soon as I finish watching it. Till then, im going to do the best for my exam.

Tentamen result had been announced last monday and I was so happy to have passed the exam! Although the score isnt as high as what I wanted, Im quite satisfied with my work. Now block exam is coming next week and triple jump as well. Triple jump is just another style of our usual tutorial but this time, we will be monitored by a assessor and the case will be announced on the spot. Im quite confuse about my MCQ exams because I dont understand what I should learn. Another problem is I started watching Nice Guy few days ago and now Im addicted to it. Kinda regret for watching it too early because it messed up my study time and made me THAT addictive to always watch it continuously. I hope I can pass my exam smoothly and get flying color marks.

Makrab Kamadhis 2012.

Hi readers, I've just back from makrab Kamadhis 2012 at Kopeng this afternoon and it's totally fun! Makrab stands for malam keakraban/intimate night (?) where we spend a night together with all seniors and having fun. This is my first time joining this kind of activity because I dont like going out and stay for nights with people whom I didnt close to. But after spending a night together yesterday, I started to think from different perspective. We got to know seniors better now and even our seniors' seniors managed to join as well! We played games and had BBQ too. I felt like going back to medan because the weather at Kopeng is exactly as same as that at Brastagi. I didnt bring any pocket camera making me kind of regret but I took some pictures with my iPad's camera.

Like finally my first tentamen has over. I dont whether Im stupid or I dont learn many things, but I make careless mistakes. I answered two questions with the same answers and sometimes even confuse with the question. I just hope I passed the exam.

Anatomy for the 1st block has finished.

My anatomy practical sessions for the whole block 1.1 have finished. The last one is anatomy of the lower limb which is concluded an hour ago. Im enjoying every anatomy sessions because I feel it's nice when you learn things directly from the cadaver and also the lecturer's assistants (we called them 'asdos' stands for asisten dosen) are very kind. Next week we'll be facing the last anatomy exam called as 'tentamen'. We'll be asked about the whole anatomy we've learnt in this block. I dont have any idea about how it will be since this is my first time. The next 2 weeks will be the exam week consist of triple jump, histology exam, and MCQs. I hope I can do well in all exams and no remediation. /Buddha bless me/

And after a month in Jogja, it rained for the first time two days ago at 2am. I didnt realise it until I saw most of my friends updating their status about jogja's current weather. Here isnt as hot as at medan but still, when there's no rain after a month you can feel something weird. Luckily it dont rain when Im at campus or outside my boarding house. 

Posting another selca = im bored.
