Your Dream April 30, 2009

“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain”
(John 12:24, NKJ)

We all face difficulties and challenges in life. But you have to remember, as a believer in Jesus, you have the life-giving seed of Almighty God on the inside of you. When you go through disappointments or tough times, you may feel like you’ve been buried. You may feel like you’re in a dark, lonely place. You may feel like it’s the end, but in reality, it’s only the beginning. The fact is, you haven’t been buried; you have been planted. That means you’re coming back. And not only are you coming back, but you’re coming back in increase, better and stronger than before.

In those tough times, you’ve got to draw the line in the sand. Make a declaration, “This difficulty is not going to bury me. This loss, this disappointment, this injustice is not going to cause me to give up on my dreams. I refuse to live in self-pity. I know I am a seed. That means I cannot be buried. I can only be planted. I may be down, but it’s only temporary. I know I’m not only coming back, I’m coming back even better than I was before!”

…..

What a word.. touched me at the right time, when I need it the most. I WILL NOT GIVE UP ON MY DREAMS ! That’s what I keep inside my heart today. I really don’t want to give up. Not right now. Not this time.

Have been wanting to post the lyrics of this song for quite a while. However, the translation that I found out there, touched differently than what I was imagined. So I decided to translate the song myself. Thanks to Google Translate, Yahoo Babel Fish and Word Lingo, for the first time, I can translate a Japanese song myself. Here’s the lyric: 

足早に通り過ぎてく
どれだけの季節 過ぎたんだろう
見慣れた景色を歩いて
遠い記憶から 一人抜け出せないまま

行き場を失いそうな…
そんなとき君と出逢った

この街で めぐりあった
今も忘れないよ あの日から
たくさんの悲しみとか 潜んだ不安 全てを
君のぬくもりで思い出に変えた Proud of your love

拾った二つの貝殻
もう一度君にあえたような奇蹟
君がそばに居てくれたら
心の奥まで優しい気持ちになれる

激しい雨が降っても
強い風が吹く中でも

この愛を 守りぬける
君とならきっとah 越えられる
初めてそう思えたから この手を放さないように
ずっと大切に大切にして

この街で めぐりあった
今も忘れないよ あの日から
生きること 信じること 悦びに変えながら
いつまでも二人 共に歩こう Proud of your love

……………………………………………….

The past has quickly passed by
I’m contemplating on how the time has passed
Walking through the familiar scenery
I can’t escape the distant memory (of you)

The time when I met you
It seems that my destination has gone astray

Walking in this town, I still remember that day
(It) brought up many sorrows 
That lies within me
It reminds me the warm memories of you
Proud of your love

Finding two shells
It seems a miracle to meet you once again
Hope to stay with you beside me
So I can feel the warmth (of your love)

When the rain pours out
And when the strong wind blows

Guard this love, so it doesn’t fell apart
If you surely want to go beyond
(I) will not let go your hand from the first time
It is really momentous (for me)

Walking in this town, I still remember that day
While thinking that (in this) life
Probably, we will walk together forever
Proud of your love

Ahh.. the sunny southern california sky is changing into bay area mood.. gloomy and cold.. to follow suit this mood, here’s one of TVXQ song. They became the first foreign male group to top the weekly Oricon charts for the third time with this song. 

どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?

どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?
どんなに時が流れても君はずっと
ここにいると、思ってたのに
でも君が選んだのは違う道

どうして君に何も伝えられなかったんだろう?
毎日毎晩募ってく思い
あふれ出す言葉、わかってたのに
(もう届かない)

始めて出会った、その日から
君を知っていた気がしたんだ
あまりに自然に溶け込んでしまった二人

どこへ行くのにも一緒で
君がいることが当然で
僕らは二人で大人になってきた
でも君が選んだのは違う道

どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?
どんなに時が流れても君はずっと
ここにいると、思ってたのに
(もうかなわない)

特別な意味を持つ今日を
幸せ顔で立つ今日を
きれいな姿で神様に誓ってる君を

僕じゃない人の隣で
祝福されてる姿を
僕はどうやって見送ればいいのだろう

もう、
どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?
あの頃も、僕らのこと、もう戻れない
(考えた)もう戻れない(考えた)

どうして君の手を掴み奪えなかったんだろう?
どんなに時が流れても君はずっと
僕の横に、入るはずだった
(もうかなわない)

それでも君が僕のそば離れていっても
永遠に君が幸せであること
ただ願ってる
たとえそれがどんなに寂しくても
(切なくても)

WHY DID I END UP FALLING FOR YOU?

Why did I end up falling for you?
No matter how much time has passed,
I thought that you would always be here
But you have chosen a different road

Why wasn’t I able to convey to you?
My feelings that were growing everyday and night
The words begin to overflow
But I know they won’t reach you now

From the first day that I met you
I felt like I knew you
And the two of us melded together so naturally

Wherever we would go, it would be together
It was so natural for you to be with me
We became adults together
But you chose a different road

Why did I end up falling for you?
No matter how much time has passed,
I thought that you would always be here (but not anymore)

Today, the day that holds a special meaning
The day that you stood with a smile of happiness
Praying to God in your beautiful appearance

With the person next to you who isn’t me
The image of you receiving blessings
How could I just stand aside and watch

So why did I end up falling for you?
We can’t go back to that time, or how we were (I’ve thought it through)

Why wasn’t I able to take your hand?
No matter how much time passes
You always should’ve been by my side
Now it will never come true

But, even though I say that I need you close to me
I just pray that you will be happy forever
No matter how lonely that makes me (or how sad)

Things that you can learn from Korean Drama April 24, 2009

50 Things YOU can learn from Korean dramas

1) Hot, rich, younger men love fat, older vulgar women.

2) If you have a best guy friend, he is in love with you. And secretly you are too.

3) You and your boyfriend will always playfully chase each other on an ice rink, at the beach, or in the leaves. And you’ll laugh for no reason and your boyfriend will hit you “playfully” but the force of his push will have you flying across the room. But it’s okay. Cuz you’re still laughing like a crazy person.

4) Brothers/cousin/uncles-nephews will always love the same girl.

5) You’re allowed to make u-turns wherever you want in Korea. And there is never traffic on the side you want to u turn to.

6) There is a super quick payment device that allows you to pay a bill quickly enough for a guy to run immediately out of a restaurant after his angry girlfriend storms out.

7) Everyone has cancer.

8) If you’re sick, all you need is an IV to make you feel lots better.

9) There is vomit and urine all over Seoul at nights.

10) Fighting at a pojangmacha (it’s a Korean food stalls) with a random stranger is merely part of a normal night’s event.

11) Soju must cost 10 cents. Everyone drinks it every day all the time, especially the poor people.

12) If you’re rich, you’re a jerk.

13) If you’re poor, you’re an angel.

14) Women sleep and wake up with a full set of makeup on.

15) You’re not studying hard enough unless you get a nosebleed.

16) If you have a nosebleed, you most definitely have cancer. And you have no money to pay for the surgery that will save your life. And your liver is missing. We’re not sure where it went, but it’s making your cancer progress faster.

17) If you work in a sool jeep (-A general term for bars or drinking houses, which are very popular), you have massively curly hair and wear flashy colors from the early 90’s.

18) You always order orange juice or coffee at a cafe. And you never drink it. EVER.

19) You will always call your boyfriend by his job title. Or simply sunbaenim (senior). Never his name. Never. He doesn’t have one.

20) If you TRULY love each other, you must die together in the end. Frozen outside instead of finding shelter like sane people. Just frozen….

21) You go to America you come back miraculously successful. You go to England you come back amazingly fashionable. You stay in Korea the only thing that changes is your hairstyle.

22) And if you come back with no apparent reason then it’s because you have cancer.

23) Everyone always goes to the same hospital no matter where they are.

24) If you stand out in the rain for more than five minutes, you’ll end up with a fever and vertigo and people will rush you to the hospital to get some magic IV. And instead of taking an ambulance or driving they’ll race you on their back.

25) Even if you’re poor and can’t eat, you never wear the same clothes twice.

26) If you play a poor kid, you always have dirt on your face and your hair is always messy.

27) If you’re saving someone from being hit from a car, you’ll push them out of the way and wait for the car to hit you instead. biggrin.gif couldn’t be more true, their like a deer in headlights

28) Everyone has a long lost sister/brother/twin. Usually one they didn’t know about.

29) If you don’t want to answer your phone, you can’t just turn it off. The battery
needs to be taken out.

30) All Korean men can drink hard, smoke long, sing well and play piano. Usually all at the same time. And at the same restaurant that has a piano that they let anyone use.

31) If you’re in a relationship, you must at one point leave and have your lover tearfully come RIGHT before you board the plane (vice versa applies as well. You can be the chaser). 60% of the time you see each other, the other 40% you’re roaming around in circles and pass each other about six times, but miraculously never see them.

32) If you’re getting off a plane, you’re ALWAYS wearing sunglasses. ALWAYS.

33) All guys wear hideous tracksuits zipped up to their neck. Even if all they’re doing is jump roping.

34) Girls will always storm off because they’re mad and the guy will stoically grab them by the arm and swing them back- and by magic, not dislocate their shoulders.

35) Guys always look like they’re 6 feet tall, even if they’re only 5’10. Thank you camera angles.

36) Guys like to wear foundation, eyeliner and sometimes a smudge of lip liner.

37) You always get stuck in an elevator with someone who makes you feel uncomfortable. Even if there are six different elevators, you’ll always be stuck in the same one with that bastard you hate (or just fought with).

38) Unless you’re fabulously rich, your in-laws will always hate you.

39) So will your sister-in-law.

40) Your brother-in-law might be pining away for you.

41) There are only 2 ways to kiss. You either press your lips against theirs with your mouth completely shut, and just press away for a very long and uncomfortable time. OR you devour the other person and suck out their soul. In both instances, the world spins.

42) A guy will always get the right size ring, even if you’re never held hands.

43) People stare off into space and ponder a lot. They’ll just stop in the middle of the road and watch a leaf on a tree for a good three minutes, and just ponder.

44) You’ll get pregnant the first time you have sex.

45) You’ll get pregnant if he kisses you on the forehead.

46) Hell- you’ll get pregnant if you hold hands.

47) If you overcome great obstacles to be together, one of you must die. Probably due to cancer.

48) One Korean man can kick the butts of 6 gangstas. Especially when they all stand in a circle and attack the guy one by one. Then when each of them get their butts OWNED, they wise up and attack the guy at the same time. Then the guy will get pulverized and bleed out onto the dusty concrete floor of the empty warehouse they’ve found to fight in. There will be a fire in a trashcan somewhere. And the girl will have watched this the entire time, screaming in horror. Instead of calling 119, she’ll just watch and cry. But it’s okay. Cuz the next day the guy will be fine with a few random bandages and a few face scars. But never a black eye.

49) It isn’t a real fight unless the gangstas fight dirty with a stick or switchblade.

50) If you study in the states (preferably Harvard), you are one of the top students and can speak perfect English (as assumed by the reactions of those around you). Why the rest of the world OUTSIDE of the TV can’t understand a single word uttered out of your melodramatic mouth is beyond me.
