An Anxious Student in a Foreign Country

by Kuma

Hallo, pals! Miss us much?

While Peach is busy being a Korean diva and working her butt off at the Korean Centre, I travelled to Singapore for my studies. (Yes, more studies, MOAR  😈)

First impression: Absolute bliss. First few days I was like a tourist, I spent my time hopping on and off the bus, and familiarising myself with the super efficient SMRT system. I ate out a lot, finally paid a visit to DAISO (oh Daiso! the land where everything is $2), bought weather-friendly clothes (MUJI and COTTON ON ❤ ), and did the usual touristy attractions. I was blown away by the convenience of living in this tiny country. Again, these were only the first few days, what was referred to as the “Honeymoon Period” in a talk at my University. When everything is glorious, attractive, and you’re basically a sport and willing to accept a new place as your own for the next year or so.

Top 5 Dark Anime!

By Peach

435907

It’s a common misconception that anime is meant for little children. All over the world, animation is mostly geared towards a younger audience, but for the Japanese, this isn’t always the case.

Whenever I hear, ‘Anime is just like cartoons’, my skin crawls and it takes all of my self control not to flip some tables and rage!
Anime is far from just children’s cartoons. There are multiple genres that are geared towards different people and age-groups.

For example, Kodomomuke is meant for little kids.. Shojo is geared towards teen girls and Shonen for teen boys. And then you have darker more mature genres of anime, Josei and Seinen for older girls and boys, respectively.

In this post, I’ll share with you some darker more mature anime that will hopefully change your perspective and get you hooked!

The Plebeian Guide to Living Life- Tip #5 ☕☕

by Kuma

So, as a young girl, whenever I went out to dinner with the family, my parents always ordered soup in the following manner:

“One sweetcorn/ burnt garlic/ tomato soup, and please divide it into two.” 

For them, the reason was that the quantity had been unreal and too much for one person, but I noticed something else. The “into two” came out to be two full bowls of soup! Which was then devoured by six people, of course. ^_^

From this experience, Peach and I have vowed to never order two separate dishes/ beverages/ appetizers whenever we go out to eat! Plebs need to bank on every opportunity they can get, after all!

Birthdays, holidays and celebrations; what makes them extra special is an adorable little gift, all wrapped up, ready to tear into! But store-bought gifts are a surefire way to make a dent in your bank account! So why not make your own?

Come Snot or Tear: Top Korean Movies That Will Make You Cry!

by Kuma

-3-lee-minho-lee-min-ho-16794691-350-197

There have been times in our lives, when we were distraught – bawling our eyes out, snot covering our faces, and a soaking pillow- all this not because of a distressful life event, but something a bit more important, i.e., a sad, morbid, morose, excruciatingly painful film.

I cry at the slightest display of emotion, therefore, watching sad movies is sort of dangerous for my system. But nonetheless, Peach and I can’t exist without ’em!

So, get your pajamas all ready, pillows all mussed and squeezed within an inch of their lives, because the following list of Korean movies is your ticket to the Teardom of Pain! *Dun Dun Dunnn*
