Island Reef Job Finalist from Korea

Remember that Best Job in the World ads? The Tourism Queensland has announced the final 16 applicants for the Island Reef Job. The applicants who are from 15 different countries (2 from Australia) will travel to Hamilton Island to take part in an extensive interview process.

One of the finalist is from Korea. Kim Juweon or Jonathan Kim from Seoul is a Radio Host for the Arirang Radio. His campaign video was of the Aussie Golf promotion to Korean consumers. He showed how Korean golf-lovers enjoy golf in Korea- yeah, Screen Golf! According to his bio, he's also lived in Southern California and Texas. He does not only speak Korean and English but he's also fluent in Spanish. And he's kinda cute too. Here's his pic.

Most - The Bridge

I first saw this video on a friend's blog. It's from an Oscar nominated movie, Most (Czech for The Bridge). A very touching story of a father who has to sacrifice his son to save a lot of people. Sounds familiar? Well, it is so touching that I cry everytime I watch this video.

MOST The Bridge
Somehow it reminds me of John 3:16~ "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. " (NKJV)

Day in the Park

After bringing Soie to the school this morning, TW and I went to the park for a walk and to see some Cherry Blossoms. The park is crowded, mostly with students doing some community service (read- cleaning the park!). There's even one group of students doing a kind of demonstration march against smoking. TW thought they were trying to follow us and hold picket infront of him. Anyways, the cherry blossoms are beautiful. Not all of the trees are in full bloom though. We just took some pictures here and there. Just stayed a while and then decided to just check out the 문화센터 (Culture Center) nearby. This place is awesome. It has a sports center, theater, study rooms and library where you can also watch some movies and use the internet. The children's library is huge, but they just have a small collection of English books. They make up for it though, I saw a complete set of the Harry Potter series.

Here are some odd pictures we took.

I'm Now a YouTuber

So I just recently joined youtube. I finally registered for an account. Been watching videos on YouTube for so long that I didn't really feel the need to sign up. I thought that's only for those who upload videos. But then I started wanting to subscribe to certain channels. So here I am, officially a YouTuber. Anyways, one of my favorites among the 'youtube stars' is this Pinoy lip-synching duo Moymoy Palaboy. They are said to have garnered over 4 milliion hits and thousands of subscriptions all over the world. But their official youtube account has recently been suspended for~ guess what, yeah copyright issues. Anyways, here is a video of their new song (not lip-synched) 'Lumayo ka man sa Laklak' a sort of parody of the two songs Lumayo ka man sa akin and Laklak.
