A Look Back at 2015 and New Year Resolutions for 2016!

안녕하세요 얼어분! 새해 복 많이 받으세요 !

Hello Everybody ! Happy New Year!

(Source: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=899273)

My! Oh! My! It’s 2015! I really can’t believe it that 2015 is over. In the past, when people used to tell me things like the year passed so quickly and time flies, etc, I used to be rather skeptical and used to think “Duh! It’s 365 days for god’s sake!” BUT, I would like to extend my sincere apologies to all those people for thinking like that as that is exactly what I am feeling right now.

When I look back at 2015 now, I guess 2015 was quite eventful after all. Continue reading

New Post in 코인의 코너 Blog – “네팔에 있는 문화” – “Culture of Nepal” plus “Languages of Nepal”

In my last post, I told you that I started my first Korean blog.

And I just wrote my first proper post in my Korean blog 코인의 코너 – Korean’s Korner in NAVER. It is entitled “네팔에 있는 문화” – “Culture of Nepal”, where I briefly introduce six main aspects of the Nepalese culture.

  1. Caste system
  2. Languages
  3. Religion
  4. Festivals
  5. Food
  6. Dress

My “All-Korean” NAVER Blog Challenge! —

My “All-Korean” NAVER Blog Challenge!

Ok! I Ever since I started pursuing my Korean language study more seriously, I had a long awaited wish of being able to write a blog in Korean, no English, but proper, full 한국어.  I had been shilly shallying about it for quite a while now, as my writing skill is pretty bad and that’s the reason I wanted to start a blog in the first place i.e. TO PRACTISE WRITING. But the main problem was my lack of knowledge of the internet & computer related terminologies or vocabulary in Korean. And of course, my Achilles heel: my awful reading skills!  That will be the death of me! I All Korean blog hosting platforms, including NAVER, the one that I chose, are in Korean. (To know what is NAVER, read here). So navigation is a big problem. In fact, It is a catch 22 situation for me,  as I couldn’t start a blog because I couldn’t navigate the site properly, and I couldn’t navigate properly, as I didn’t start a blog sooner and didn’t get used to all the terminologies.

But last night, I thought, “What the hell!  한번 해보지 뭐! Let’s just get it over and done with. After all, I’ll have to start it someday. Better early than late! So I started a blog in NAVER called 코인의 코너” – “Koen’s Korner/Corner” (He he! 코코 or KK, which also happens to be one of my nicknames given to me by my dearest friend Kim ♥ ♥ ♥).  Please have a look at my blog here.
