Park Bom hits Kchart

This week's big surprise was the success of Park Bom's digital solo "You and I", taking the first spot on daily kcharts.

Park Bom's solo hit was anticipated by her fans and most of her critics declared it as a huge success.

The beat of the song and her singing prowess is so good to have a very sad story. No matter, 2NE1 followers such as myself loves it.

Congratulations to Park Bom and Dara as well for the success of their digital single as a solo artist.

Eco-friendly Footwear

The changing times has brought us together to be aware of what we can do to help lessen the impact of global warming. For shopaholics and shoe aficionado's one way to help is to patronize shoes made of natural materials or better perhaps recycled items that makes it unique.

Cheers to these items to help save the day.

Big Bang recognized by Time Magazine

I mentioned before that Koreans are trying to penetrate the lucrative Japanese market.

Big Bang took on the Japanese music industry this year by storm and with that, Prestige TIME Magazine recognized their efforts.

Big Bang as a group was not that active this year in their local industry but individually they are busy with their own crafts. Big Bang leader G-Dragon and RNB suave Taeyang released their solo albums. TOP is busy with his acting career, (Daesung and) Seungri with his musical, Daesung is busy as part of the Reality TV Program before he had an accident and Seungri took his place at the moment until he is ready to make his comeback.

However, the group became busy last summer making their names big in the Japanese music industry. Big Bang released their full length Japanese album.

Bring your own spoon and fork

Japanese are known for their cleanliness. As early as 8th century AD, Japanese population was divided into two groups according to Shinto concepts of purity. Shintoism was basically a primitive folk religion and Shinto concepts equated goodness and godliness with purity and cleanliness. Shinto held that impurities could cling to people, making them evil or sinful.
When I first met my Japanese sister-in-law almost 10 years ago, I was so delighted to get to know her even though I don't have a Japanese-English dictionary in my bag. Until now I still don't know how I could speak with her when my brother is not around, the least I can do is make her feel that she's welcome to our family and I am happy that they gave us our sweet little monster nephew.

One time, we go out to shop and after the exhausting walk she told us that we should rest and have something to fill us up. We are in a fine dine resto when she took out a pair of clean funky utensils. I was so curious but I didn't asked her. Then I noticed after eating, she took a wipes in her bag, wiped her spoon and fork, put it in a Ziploc and in to her bag.

One of the thousands of things I learned from her is to bring clean spoon and fork every time I go out. She told me that we are not sure that public spoons and forks (plastic or stainless) are clean, we can get sick because of that. Even though restaurants and fastfood chains sterilized it, it is not 100% guaranteed clean because handling and placing it on the table can get it contaminated.

So invest a cute or unique pair of utensils and save Earth in style. You'll be amazed of how much plastic you can save from hitting the dumpsters.

I have my pair of Studio 2000 I bought in Australia, so restos won't mistake that I'm taking home their utensils. LOL!

I can't wait for the next installment of Twilight Saga "New Mon" but 5 days delayed from other countries? I think that's not a good idea because piracy in the Philippines is terrible. I'm quite sure that pirated copy of "New Moon" movie will be out first before it's release in cinemas. I really think Summit should make it a World Premiere to prevent piracy.
