Well... after about a week-and-a-half of shift duties, life has gone back to normal with the arrival of the new maid. Whew! How did our grandparents cope with a large brood, housework and earn a living at the same time?
People always say that's because life was simpler then.
I figured it's because we have made life complicated for ourselves.
A cup of coffee would be just a cup of coffee back then.
You can have 'kopi-o' (coffee without milk) or 'kopi' (coffee). There is only one size.
Now? Step into any of the coffee chain and you are presented with so many choices.
Coffee latte, cuppocino, coffee black, coffee with cream, coffee with milk.
Short, regular, tall...
and the list goes on.
Maybe that's why Korean dramas have become such a hit almost everywhere with its simplistic storylines.
Of course, they are mostly fairytale stories, meant for dreaming and escaping from the world for that few hours. But how boring life would be without the world of make believe.
Anyway, I escaped from my usual life for a short while recently due to the Korean tornado that swept into town on the first week of September. It was truely, really fun.

Sorry about this short post...life will definitely be back to normal soon. ^^
