‘Tis the Season To Be Liebstered


I am touched, honored and pleased to have been bestowed with two Liebster Award nods from two delightful fellow bloggers (and Jang Hyuk-loving fangirls), Stuck On Hyuk and Ahjussi Fan. Thank you my dears for this lovely honor.

The blogosphere is an amazing place filled with many amazing people writing about all kinds of amazing things. I am happy to be a resident here along with Stuck on Hyuk and Ahjussi Fan whose blogs are solid places to find a whole lot of Jang Hyuk love and other K and J-loving goodies! On to the Liebster…..

New Orleans or Burst….Cloud Burst, That Is

Bi NOLA Burst2

When Cloud USA announced that it was going to have its next meeting/fan gathering (aptly called a Cloud Burst) in New Orleans I thought to myself, hmmmmm, a group of Rain fans gathered together to celebrate Rain in a city known for its festive atmosphere pretty much every day of the year? That sounded like a complete win-win situation to me.  And, it was.

Under THAT Umbrella…eh, eh, eh


You know me, in anticipation of precipitation

Game On, Seoul!


It’s the final moments that define a journey and the first ones that make it possible.

I have made it through Round One and arrived safely into San Francisco. And, we got in early! Someone knows I need to get to Seoul!  Now it is time to recharge my batteries….my electronic ones, that is!  My inner battery is fully charged and ready to greet Seoul.  I guess watching those two episodes of Fugitive was comparable to drinking about two Venti expressos for me!!!  Thank you, Ji Hoon-ssi for keeping me company on the first leg of this extraordinary journey!

Cannot wait to make acquaintance with the countless Clouds who will invariably be descending upon Seoul along with me.  I don’t know what will transpire on July 10, but I can assure you there will be a celebration! We are ready to celebrate full on, Sergeant!  And as you make it impossible for us to avoid the Rain….we will make it impossible for you to avoid knowing we are there, that you have been missed,  that you have not for a second been forgotten, and that we are ready Rain, we are so ready!!


More to follow…..


Countdown to Seoul

KB Palace Seoul

I FINALLY get to leave ‘the swamp’ (New Orleans) today after a three-week stay and get back to what is really important:  planning my first visit to Seoul!  When I began my relationship with K-drama, K-pop, K-culture and anything K, my mind immediately had me dreaming of visiting the land of all things K.
