Cleaning is physically taxing and many people still look down on the profession. I admit it.
However, I dont think that can explain everything we do. Cleaning isnt simply about getting rid of dust and garbage. I believe that it can make someone’s life a little more hopeful. What I have felt since starting this business is that I could see hope on the faces of our clients who were satisfied with our cleaning service. A belief that their lives can get better. It gave them such a small hope. I trust that cleaning has a positive power. That’s why I am proud of what I do and it is also the reason why I deeply respect all my employees.

It must be hard. Washing up and getting changed multiple times throughout the day. And maintaining this level of cleanliness both at home and work must require a lot of time and effort. I suddenly thought that it must be very hard.
I’m sure there’s a reason for it. Just like me. This will sound like an excuse but I thought even taking showers was a luxury when I had multiple part-time jobs. I gave up washing my hair and got 10 more minutes of sleep and I gave up changing to fresh clothes to study more. Living like that for a while turned into a habit. I’m sure your reason is different but you must have a legitimate reason as well. Everyone has a story.

I am thinking of confessing my love too. If I miss this opportunity, I might regret it later. It’s you, Oh Sol. The person I want to protect.
Currently, there is a kdrama drought even though my friend is enjoying her time watching The Last Empress. Or maybe there is a serious kdrama drought since Are you human too? My sister, as usual, is still having some China Dramas to watch. Dont know how she find so many China Dramas haha…
I am now spending some of my drama time watching the latest Running Man episodes and China variety shows like Run for time and Who’s the murderer. I watched until ep 8 for Clean with passion for now which is not too bad but probably not enough tension or interesting plot development to keep me going. I chased Memories of the Alhambra until episode 6 then the pace dropped quite a lot and I scanned through it. The light in your eyes doesnt seem to be going in the direction I wished it will. Liked the acting by Nam Joo Hyuk and Han Ji Min, and the fantasy. Liked Park Sun Ho’s acting in The Best Chicken but not really attracted to the plot haha. Watched 2 episodes of The Crowned Clown because of Yeo Jin Goo but the plot doesnt attract me. Dropped The Last Empress after the first episode. Thought there will be some fantasy involved but there isnt and it is more of a “high intensity” revenge story.
My sister and I just finished watching Long for you 2 China Drama together and it is considered good but I have to go back and watch the first few episodes since she watched those without me. Liked the fantasy in it! Watched episodes 11-14 for Emperors and me. The funny thing about this drama is that whenever the female lead time-travels to a historical time period, she brings back the emperor of that time period to the modern times. But this drama is a bit too brain-cracking for me and I dont feel like watching the scenes where the emperors try to get used to their new environment and fit into the modern times so I may not watch it. My sister and I started on Singapore Drama Hello from the other side as it has fantasy involved, even though it may be a bit morbid.
Hope I will get some motivation to write some reviews haha.
Just for collation
Finished but no review done

Taiwanese Dramas: Love Cuisine full review (quick review done)/ Silence
Feeling a little bored haha so just going to write what I have been doing or will be doing.
My sister and I have been dropping many Korean Dramas these days, probably more than in the past? I plan to finish the reviews for Sweet Dreams and Ashes of Love by December(hopefully since I am a procrastinator). Sad that lack of dramas to chase.
Although there was quite some hype for My ID is Gangnam Beauty, we dropped it after the first episode haha. The male lead is quite good-looking but I guess that’s not enough to make us continue. After the mystery is uncovered in What’s wrong with Secretary Kim, the tension and suspense that captivated me to watch is gone and I felt like dropping it. The mystery seems to be holding up the drama and once it is gone, the attractive part of the drama seems to collapse with it. And we did drop it towards the end. Hopefully I can pick it up again.
More recent dramas such as Where stars land, Still 17, 100 days my prince, Devilish Joy, dont give me the motivation to chase or at least watch till the end.
My sister and I dropped Where stars land and Still 17 about 1/4 to half way. My sister dropped Where Stars Land after the confession scene while I managed to scan through most of it. The starting was very good and the pace and characters were great for both dramas but somehow after around 1/4 of it, the pace drops a lot and the characters lose their distinctive characteristics which attracted me. It is quite a waste. I will try to persist and finish these 2 if I can. Where stars land seems to be better than Still 17 as Lee Soo Yeon’s emotional struggle of wanting to lead a normal life consistently shines through in the drama. However, both lack interesting plot development and plot twists after 1/4 of it.
100 days my prince and Devilish Joy are dramas related to memory loss. I love dramas related to memory loss but the plot developments in these 2 dramas are not enough to attract me to watch it episode by episode. For Devilish Joy, I feel that it would have been better if the impact of memory loss felt each time Ma Sung loses his memory is greater and if there are more fun/comedy scenes related to the memory loss. Not sure if I am right since I didnt watch quite a lot of episodes. 100 days my prince’s plot does not seem interesting enough even though there are some attractive features such as the prince becoming a commoner but not acting like one after losing his memory and him marrying, living and interacting with a commoner that was actually once a noble lady.
Maybe I am just being fussy? Am I supposed to be contented and just watch those I can get my hands on since it is difficult to consistently include creative and completely new things in dramas? My sister and my preference for fantasy dramas is probably hard to meet? The trend has moved from fantasy to crime to probably hardship and suffering and it seems to be moving towards sci-fiction now.
Due to lack of fantasy dramas, I went back and watch Back to 1989 Taiwanese Drama and You who came from the stars kdrama haha… My sister and I tried When time stopped but the tone is quite grim. Not sure if we will continue. My sister suddenly felt like watching a law drama after a role play at school haha so we watched Lawless Lawyer. We finished about 3/4 of it then my sister found it getting boring so we put it aside for now. The only things that may keep me going in Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter are to find out who is Mama Fairy’s real husband and to watch the cat/tiger that can transform to human. For the newer dramas, I am considering Memories of the Alhambra and Clean With Passion For Now. My sister and I have watched the first episode for both. Memories of the Alhambra seems to be a sci-fiction drama about augmented reality. I suddenly have this weird+crazy thought that Chan Yeol’s character is killed by the game character he created after I read some comments about the drama. I laughed my way through most of the first episode of Clean With Passion For Now. Considering watching it but it doesnt have fantasy elements though, not sure if the pace will drop later.
On a side note, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by the instagram account. At first, I usually post around 7-8 posts per drama but after I learnt how to cut videos, I have double the number of posts to put. Usually I can finish posting about a drama shortly after a drama is completed but now it seems to be dragged since I have to arrange so many posts and have to arrange such that it is not always the same drama appearing. In the past, I only post 2 posts in around 6 days but now I seem to need to post 8 posts for 4 days and still cannot finish posting. Feel that I am spending too much time on the instagram account and I wont be able to maintain the frequency of posting once school starts. Hope I can settle this before this month ends.
