1st ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL, ABUJA

Sunday, 2 July 2017





How was your weekend?

Mine was uneventful. I was meant to go to a fair today but last minute errands came up and I had to cancel. 

The saving grace for meafter my resolution to have fun and go out more this summer— is that I have 4 more events in my July calendar that I can attend plus fun activities at work this month. 

Which brings me to the title of this post!

10 Asian countries who make up the Asian committee in Abuja are hosting the first ever week-long film festival showcasing blockbusters from each country. 

The event is going to be taken place at the China Cultural Centre in Wuse from 3rd - 8th July and all the films are free entry. Yay! 

On the first day of the festival, there is an opening ceremony which is by invitation only, but afterwards the movie screening has free admission. So drag your friends and family and enjoy a round-trip across Asian Cinema from the East to the South and in-between. 

P.S: you may also get the chance to try out their cuisines ;)


Here is a film Schedule for each day.







So tell me, which movie catches your fancy? Who are you planning on taking, a Date? Mum? Dad? Friend? or making it a siblings affair?

INTRODUCING KOREAN VARIETY SHOWS

Monday, 12 June 2017




여로분 오랜만에 잘 있었어요?

Hello everyone, how've you been?

I know it has been quiet around here for a while. I have been very busy and a lot of big changes have been taking place in my life. I have to admit though, I did miss writing and making youtube videos. I actually took a break from youtube because I didn't have final cut pro which I used to use for editing but now I have it so expect more videos from me.

KOREAN CULTURE | How Seollal [설날] is performed

Thursday, 16 February 2017



















As promised in my New year update post, I said I was going to write about how Seollal is celebrated.

새해  많이 받으세요 = Please receive a lot of luck or blessings in the New Year

Seollal~설날 is the most celebrated holiday in South Korea, the second being Chuseok
추석which is the harvest festival. Seollal is not only a celebration of the coming in of a new year but an opportunity for families to come together from far and near, catch up with each other and enjoy sumptuous meals and activities. It is also a time to pay respects to ancestors and visit their grave sites.
