The KCC

August is ending, and Christmas season is coming up in a few days (In the Philippines, Christmas season begins on September 1st :D). How fast can time be? I can…

“Everyone is searching for a place where their sadness and loneliness can be healed. For you, that place is here. Don’t be afraid, don’t hesitate anymore, because I’ll protect you.”

The truth is, it’s hard to make everyone understand how much this group composed of five amazingly wonderful people mean to me. Tweets, posts, graphics won’t really be able to show how thankful I am that I got to know TVXQ and their music, and how much they have changed and inspired me while I was growing up.

#CandySkyinSeoul2010: TIMEOUT GELATO: 1/5 – 2010 10 21

Good morning! ^^ It’s almost 2AM and again, I have yet to go to bed. Haha. Slowly, body clock! I will get you back on track! Haha ^^

So a couple of nights ago, I was ~reminiscing~ about our 12-day Seoul trip last year. My sister Katie did a great job outlining what we did during the day in her scheduler, so we ended up browsing through it, and reading the accounts, recalling stuff that we did during our two weeks of stay in Seoul. We had two “Dong Bang Days”, the first one with Meli and Diane unnie-deul, and the last one with just the two of us, a day before our departure back to Manila.

I knowww I haven’t blogged about my trips at all, save maybe for an entry I posted about the Malaysia trip before my blog crashed, and then the quick entry about the JYJ Showcase in Malaysia that I wrote before I left for Bangkok in April. I promise to find time and write about those soon! But for now — I really want to blog about one of the places we went to a lot.

One of the shops Katie and I kept going back to was Timeout Gelato. It’s a gelato bar located in Apgujeong (very near Hyundae Department Store as well as Apgujeong-yeok) and is owned by none other than TVXQ’s Micky YooChun! This was our second stop for the first ~Dong Bang Day~. (First stop was Misarang Imsil Pizza, the restaurant owned by JunSu’s family). Timeout Gelato is where we kept going back to every other day of our trip, even if Hongdae, where our hostel was located, is a bit far from it. ^^’

I actually forgot to take a photo of the front of the store, because I was in too much of a hurry to get inside, and get my gelato. Haha. This was actually our second time going to Timeout. The first one was in 2009, during our trip to Seoul with our Mom. (I guess I’ll post a separate entry for that? If I do find photos… I lost so much when my white MacBook got stolen in late 2009 ;;)

We got in and settled to a table~ And then I quickly went to the counter to take photos. ROFL. GELATOOOOOOO AT LAST! Haha! It was Autumn that time, and these were the available flavors:

Pistacio Sicillia, Cherry Ripe, Mango Cream, Cookies and Cream, Pineapple Yogurt, Tim Tams, Melon Cream, Blueberry Cheese, Apricot Yogurt, Dark Chocolate,

… and I forgot the other 2 that got cut from this photo;

JaeChunSu, Jeju and the unfair treatment by KBS

In line with what @mjjeje tweeted, I made a new Twitter icon for myself *_*

This is HyeopJae Beach in Jeju~ ^^

For those who aren’t aware, a couple of months back, our JaeJoong, YooChun and JunSu were appointed by the local government of Jeju-do as the Official Honorary Ambassadors of Jeju.

Jeju Island is in the running to be one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. (So is the Philippines’ very own Puerto Princesa Underground River!)

Since the announcement that our boys have been appointed ambassadors, many overseas fans have since then helped in voting for Jeju Island and also in spreading the word about it.

Currently, Jeju Island is at the #2 spot on the N7W Voting Trends list.

A lot of us have been looking forward to their performance on the Jeju special that will be broadcasted through KBS on July 20th. However, on July 16th, KBS announced the cancelation of the JaeChunSu’s participation in the special. Which turned out to be a decision made and announced without the knowledge of the artists, their company and even the local government of Jeju.

And then later on they announced that SNSD and f(x) will be performing in their place, because the said groups are more “effective” than Kim JaeJoong, Park YooChun and Kim JunSu.

D: (I am a fan of both SNSD and f(x), but KBS’ claim about effectiveness? It’s all. BS.)
