Snow Fight @Sogang University ~ Korea


Just a blink of a night, my school ground already transformed into a wonderland. ^^ No matter how much, I hate winter and cold weather, I still in love with this innocent white landscape. At noon, more shower snow fallin’. It sometimes look beautiful and romantic, but sometimes, it’s become hard like a rain drop which is not safe at all. However, this evening, we will have a wonderful time as me and my friends here planned to play a snow fight and build a big human-like- snowman of all. (**In reality, we can only just pile up a small volcano. Lolzz)

Ajossi is piling up the snow on the ground, so we can walk better.

So sad for him, cos after he’s done, more snow fallin’.

 

Some of our activities!! Let’s Fight!!


Don’t miss a chance to take picture! ^^

Collection of Khmer Songs


Today I’m in the emotion of York Thet Rotha, a famous Cambodian singer. Seems like I’m being brought back to my childhood life, once I don’t even understand a single thing about the meaning of this song. But of course the romantic melody always making me wanna sing along with her. Hahaha!!

Also it’s a reminding of my sisters and my friends in Cambodia, who always like these songs. Especially, wanna share this to my dear friend, Lavorn, I’m sure she gonna love this… much as this singer is her idol. ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas in Seoul 2010


During Christmas, at City Hall, there is an artificial ice-skating rink that set up for people to enjoy this holy season. We, like other Korean people, are waiting for this. For 3Cs reason:

– It’s Cheap (1000won, while the normal price is 7000 won)

– It’s at the City Hall

– It’s Christmas ^^

Of course, we really had so much fun. And this time, not like before, I can stand properly and skate very little. In addition, the atmosphere is a lot better that the one we went last time. As here we can see the clear blue sky, the freedom of people around us, and a big Christmas tree too. It’s such a joyful time, people are all smiling. ^^

**Note: Don’t miss a chance to do this. If interest, you can join me this Wednesday, as again, I’ll go there. ^^

Me & My other Cambodian friends on the

Skating Rink. Don’t jealous us! Come on!

Beautiful Atmosphere, right? ^^

Let’s Play Ice-Skating together!!

Look at how happy I was at that time!! ^^

(I’ll be a lot happier if I can stand more like Kim Yuna. :”) )

 

Reminding of LCIS 2010


Till now, once and whenever I wear my shiny yellow hood down to Cafeteria, some of my friends still wonders ‘Where do I get this hood?” and “What is LCIS?” … Hahah!! It’s so funny cos not only but several students too, has it. So, my friends wondering maybe I have some connection with those students too. And yeah.. because of LCIS, we becoming friends.

That yellow hood I’ve got from a conference that I joined several months now. It’s called “Leadership Conference of International Students”.ย  It’s still a memory to remember. Today I just found the video summary of our activities.

Let’s enjoy with me.(Note* There are many of my friends appear in here. Also, there is one piece of my face in the middle part of this Vid, don’t miss a chance to see it^^)

1st Attempt on TOPIK (Beginner Level)


My TOPIK exam will be this January 23rd 2011. Therefore, I tried to test my abilities whether or not I can get level 2 on the Topik (Beginner level) and yeah.. I got such a satisfy result that. I FAILED!!!!

I’m suppose to get higher than 70/100 in all subject to pass level 2. However, here is the result after my first attempt.

– Speaking :ย  69 (Refer to grammar usage, yeah I’m not that bad, just 1 more point to Pass, it still called failed)

-Writing : 57 (In class, writing is my best skill, but here, if I mistake one structure, I can’t get any scoreย  ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )

-Reading : 76 (Also, my best skill, but I really found it’s bored and complicated, however, my guess still win ๐Ÿ™‚ )

-Listening: 84 (Highest, right? ๐Ÿ˜€ This score include Listening + Facebooking + Christmas Wishing. As this beginner level they speak very slow that I have to seek the tape forward as I don’t wanna wait long)

In conclusion, now I know how and where to improve my score on TOPIK test. Let’s see if I can make it on my next attempt. Whether or not, I can reach my goal! Fighting Molyna!!ja ja! ^^

Ah.. I almost forgot the time. It’s 1.40 already. Hmm.. need to off to bed now as I have to wake up and get some Christmas gift ready for tomorrow. By the way, Merry Christmas to all my lovely readers! A lot of thank for visiting me! ^^

Poor Little Mouse. I’m Sorry!


I’m so sorry that before I always have a secret glance at those beautiful and colorful mouse at the electronic store and silently wanna get one of them to be mine. Completely forget about you that always stay at home and have been with me more than a year now. You saved my hand, you saved my time, you saved my money….Because I always use you, your beautiful glimmering skin that look shiny when I just bought you have fade away that now the greyish old look replace.

If there is no today, I might not know how guilty and unresponsive act I’ve done to you. I’m so sorry, because of the way you look, year by year, my feeling change. I might haven’t told you, but at least you should know what I used to think about you. Of course,ย  I can’t see you at all. I’ve never want to be with you at all. You’re so ugly. You are not a sweet fresh orange from the garden anymore. You are just an old black mouse!… Now I just realize how important you are to me. How lucky that I have you with me, my poor little mouse.ย  Now I want you back! Please wake up and be with me again, will you? Please don’t die like this! I need you.ย  Please come back!! (T.T)

The origin of Mistletoe, wreath, Santa Clause Cookies, and stockings by the fire place


I found this from Seouleats and they found it on Classbrain.com. I found it pretty interesting so I wanted to share it with you.

YULE LOG
Did you know the burning of the Yule Log was taken from ancient sun worship rituals? Yule Logs are supposed to be cut from red oak trees and burned all of Christmas Eve and into Christmas Day. It is unlucky to buy your own log and lucky ones usually come from your neighborโ€™s woodpile. It is also customary to light the new log with a scrap of last year’s log. The scrap is kept under the homeownersโ€™ bed to protect the home from fire and lightning during the next year.

ICE SKATES
Can you believe the very first ice skates were made from animal bones? The oldest pair ever discovered was found at the bottom of a lake in Switzerland and date back to 3000 B.C. Leg bones from large animals were used as the blade and the skates were tied on with leather straps. The Dutch word for skate is โ€˜schenkelโ€™ which means leg bone. The largest outdoor skating rink is the Fujikyu Highland Promenade Rink in Japan. It was built in 1967 and covers 3.8 acres.

SLED
Can you think of what was used to move heavy items before the invention of the wheel? Sleds were used in the Neolithic Period as well as in pre-Columbian America where Eskimos used dogs to pull them. Ancient Egyptians also used sleds to haul large blocks of stone. Soon people created runners (to make the sled slide over the ground easier), two sleds together (the bobsled) and lightweight passenger sleds drawn by horses.
SNOW
You may already know that no two snowflakes are alike, but do you know how they differ? Each tiny flake is formed by symmetrical crystals, meaning all sides are the same length and size. Each flake is different from the next in size, lacy structure and surface markings. The United States gets about 28 inches of snow every winter. Fun activities associated with snow are skiing, snowboarding, sled riding, snow mobile riding, or hiking with snowshoes. Some areas of the country have winter sports centers that depend greatly on the snow to make money.

WREATH
Can you believe people used to worship evergreen holly as a sign of eternal life because it did not brown or die in the winter? Some religious groups say that the crown of thorns placed on Jesusโ€™ head was made of holly. The berries were supposedly white but turned bright red from Jesusโ€™ blood. Holly is also said to represent the sunโ€™s return after a long winter. We now place wreaths on doors or hallways to create a festive atmosphere during the holiday season.

MISTLETOE
Did you realize that mistletoe is rarely used in churches because it comes from the ancient Druid ceremony celebrating winter solstice? This once pagan tradition started when a girl would stand beneath the hanging plant and a boy would walk up, pick a berry and then kiss her. When the berries were goneโ€ฆno more kisses!

STOCKINGS
Do you know why we hang stockings on the fireplace? Long ago it was said that Saint Nicholas (now called Santa Claus) threw 3 coins down a chimney of the home of 3 poor sisters. Each of the coins landed inside separate stockings left on the hearth (fireplace) to dry. It is now a modern tradition to hang stockings there in hopes that we might have the same good fortune.

COOKIES
Do you know that the most popular cookie kids leave for Santa is the Oreo? Maybe thatโ€™s because over 9.1 billion of them are sold each year. There is no exact date recorded but the idea of leaving cookies for Santa started sometime in the 1930โ€™s. Naughty kids use them to bribe Santa at the last minute and nice kids use them as a way of thanking him for all his hard work on Christmas Eve.

SANTA CLAUS
Can you believe that โ€˜Santaโ€™ has been around since the 4th century? Originally known as Saint Nicholas, the patron of children and sailors, the bishop was immortalized because of his generous and loving nature towards children. He was said to have brought joy to the poor by throwing gifts through their windows. The Dutch called him Sint Nikolass, which eventually evolved into Sinter Klaas. It wasnโ€™t until the Dutch began entering America that the colonials of New York began calling him Santa Claus.

CHRISTMAS CARDS
The earliest known designer of a Christmas card was Sir Henry Cole, the first director of the Victoria and Albert Museum. It was both the Penny Post postal service in 1840 and the industrialization of the printing industry however, that led to the popularity of sending Christmas cards. By 1846, one thousand were sold at one shilling each. Cards in unsealed envelopes could be posted for half a penny. A German printer by the name of Louis Prang was designing and selling cards in Roxbury, Massachusetts in 1874. Ten years later his shop was selling more than 5 million cards a year.

EGGNOG
Did you know eggnog used to be made with beer? In the 17th century a strong ale called โ€˜nogโ€™ was very popular in Britain around the holidays. It was made from beer, sugar, egg yolks, lemon rinds and cinnamon. Later in the 19th century North Americans took the French version of the drink called โ€˜Lait de Pouleโ€™, made from milk, sugar, and egg yolks and added spirits. With the addition of brandy, rum or sherry, we have our own modern day eggnog. We now cook the drink to remove the threat of salmonella, but the recipe has been the same for over 150 years.

LIGHTS
The very first person to have Christmas lights on their tree was Edward Johnson who worked for Thomas Edison. It would be a while however before the general public could purchase similar lights. The first strands to be mass-produced came from Ever Ready in the early 1900โ€™s. By the 1920โ€™s General Electric had improved upon the invention.

CANDY CANES
Can you believe that someone once thought sugar would keep kids quiet? In the year 1670 the local choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral gave his young singers sugar sticks to keep them quiet during the long ceremony. He had the candy bent in the shape of shepherdsโ€™ crooks to celebrate the festive occasion. In the 1920โ€™s a man named Bob McCormack made candy canes by hand for his friends and family. It took too long to bend them and only a few people could enjoy them. In the 1950โ€™s his brother-in-law, Gregory Keller, invented a machine that made lots of candy canes at the same time. Bobโ€™s Candies, Inc. became the largest maker of candy canes in the world. It was only in the early 1900โ€™s that red stripes were added and peppermint became the standard flavor.

CHRISTMAS TREE
Did you know the tradition of the Christmas tree comes from Germany? The very first trees were oak, the same tree used for the Yule Log. Trees have been a symbol of good luck since the Middle Ages. In Germany, whenever someone would build a house, a small evergreen tree would be nailed to the highest beam. Soon people began bringing the tree inside during Christmastime and decorating it. When German immigrants came to the United States, they brought this tradition with them.

CAROLING
The custom of singing Christmas carols is said to have come from 13th century Italy where a man named St. Francis of Assisi led songs of praise. It is very bad luck to send carolers away empty handed. It is customary to offer food, drink or even a little money. It is also said to be unlucky if you sing Christmas carols at any other time of the year besides the festive season.

RUDOLPH
Can you believe the invention of Rudolph was an advertising gimmick? The red-nosed reindeer was born in 1939 when a 34-year old writer for Montgomery Ward named Robert L. May was asked to invent a Christmas story. The company gave copies of the story to customers during the holiday season as a promotion for their stores.
