Please call me ‘Sayang’

“Oppa, saranghae!” is a phrase I’ll never utter to a man. More like it’s doubtful I’ll ever get the chance to, unless I somehow manage to snag a Korean fella along the way. I like the ring to the word, it sounds respectful but at the same time, it gives away a hint of ‘something’ … Continue reading

attraction vs. temptation and vice versa

can you resist the urge to covet for something that is close to being forbidden? i know the saying that ‘everything is possible’, but how do you muster the strength to deny wanting something that is so beyond your reach, that even if you are given a slight glimmer of hope, you know deep within … Continue reading

What’s in the name?

Before I go any further, let me make it clear that I am a reformed shopaholic.
