'The King 2 Hearts' and 'Rooftop Prince'

The King 2 Hearts
And so with the demise of 'The Moon That Embraces The Sun' 2 weeks ago I was left feeling lost and saddened upon the fact that I would be unable to see Hwon (Kim SooHyun) and YangMyung (Jung IlWoo) on my laptop screen again. I will dearly miss them.
Especially the eunuch with a Chopper-like grin, HyungSun. The comic relief and pistachio to the drama.

However, it's sucessor, 'The King 2 Hearts' (however it is spelt), having been featured on EpDrama's video player countless times before I viewed the last few episodes of TMTETS caught my interest, for it had appeared that Ha JiWon and Lee SeungGi (I thought it was Song JoongKi at first because of the angle) would be playing the lead roles.
Instant interest.
Having loved Ha JiWon from 'Secret Garden' and Lee SeungGi in 'My Girlfriend is a Gumiho' I was intrigued as to how this pairing will fare in a drama. I guess you could say I'm a bit of a HyunBin and JiWon shipper after 'Secret Garden', hah.

Hair colour update.

I've noticed that in my previous post on my hair colour update on January 2012 I didn't include images of my hair in cloudy natural light. I only gave images of my hair under artificial light and a warm toned natural light. Cannot neglect that cool toned natural light either! After all, some of you guys might be living in dreary cloudy Britain too!

Despite this picture NOT being taken a few days fresh after the dye job I can safely say that my hair colour has not changed drastically after these 2 months - by this I mean that I haven't noticed any changes in colour vibrancy and all looks well.
Personally I'm not too picky whether my hair colour has dulled slightly or not, just as long as the colour's still there and it satisfies me still.

Take note that I have been taking care of it by using TRESemme's Colour Thrive Brunette shampoo and conditioner every other day. Not that I'm saying that this is the best shampoo and conditioner to use, but it's cheap and does the job. Better to be safe than sorry.

Food Diary: Term 2

For all those that are curious as to what one particular university student in England eats whilst at university.
This is no food plan, but just a vague breakdown and images of my food highlights whilst at university. As you can see I have very little cooking experience, heck before I even moved to Leeds for university I only knew (was confident in) how to prepare rice for the rice cooker.
Ever since I moved to university I am now very confident in making chicken/beef stroganoff, beef bolognase, tamagoyaki, lemon and honey chicken and lemon chicken breasts. Pasta bakes probably don't count hah!

So here's a quick run through of my diet which also helped me slim down ONE dress size. No exercise required.

And so, the finale aired on Thursday night in Korea, peaking pretty much at 52% (rounded number) viewership which could pretty much reflect its success and popularity.
In reality this is partial, merely because it is the final episode where the rebellion took place, countless deaths occurred and we get to see Hwon and YeonWoo together at long last.
Events that would grab any viewers attention, not necessarily in a good way.
