Apr 29 Press F5 to refresh 새로고침

亲爱的日记-

有一段时间没有在这里唠叨了。

hyeon_press f5 to refresh

标题的灵感来自Park Kyung一个月前发行的单曲 <<새로고침 (Refresh)>>。
懂得运用电脑快键的人都应该知道,点击“F5”就可以刷新网页,重新再来一次。

把这个理念套在现实生活中,大概可以理解成“转泪点”的意思。

回想一下你人生的转泪点是什么时候?

我能联想到最近一个发生在我身上的转泪点是发生在去年11月。
在我上一篇的日记里也有提到,我辞退了一份做了快满3年的工作,成功申请到了一份在吉隆坡(KL)的工作,然后我就顺其自然地搬离开了家,又重新开始了在外地生活的日子。

上一次离开家是出去读书——我是怀着紧张又兴奋的心情出去的,毕竟有个人生活空间是我一直憧憬的事。
这一次离开家是去讨生活——我是怀着紧张又害怕的心情出去的,因为我觉得什么事都要重新再来一次

之所以毕业后选择回家是因为想家了。
而后来也顺其自然地在家乡找了工作,赚钱养自己。

以我读的专业,标准的入社准则就是加入稽查公司(Audit Firm),累计个3年的经验。
如果能在考个专业文聘(professional paper),那事业就是稳稳的。

我毅然决然地选择踏入商业公司(commercial firm),走进中小型企业(small and medium company),宁可从0学习,从底做起——就是因为我无法想象过着稽查师(auditor)没日没夜的生活。

我承认我任性。
选择这条路就代表我要花比别人更多的时间达到目的地。
同时我也清楚了解这决定后面所要牺牲的所有可能性。
这是我做的决定,我知道我想要过怎样的生活。

但是就当我发现升职遇到无法突破的瓶颈时,
事实告诉我得辞退工作,往别处发展。

说实话,我很难过,很挣扎,开始怀疑3年前的我所做的决定。
是否代表我浪费了前3年的光阴?

带着逃避的想法,我毅然决然地申请了去纽西兰(New Zealand)工作旅游签证(work and holiday visa)。
周围的朋友都说这个工作旅游签证是很难成功申请。有人连试了2年都没拿到。
我就默默地跟自己许愿说,假如我申请成功,我就辞职去纽西兰——把它视为上帝给的绿灯。

怎知道我第一次申请竟然就成功了?!
欸,幸运抽奖都没有拿过首奖的我竟然?!

殊不知,这个旅游签证带给我的是更多的烦恼。
在我的印象里,我从来都没有为了做一个决定挣扎了那么长的时间。
我为了逃避做一个决定而跳进了另一个漩涡。
去or不去,这个决定耗时了整整10个月的时间。

大多数的人为我拿到工作旅游签证这事感到开心,并且鼓励我去。
但是家人和比较亲的朋友都不认为我会前往——因为要去我是孤身一人

我以为我可以借此机会来突破我的“框框”,
结果事实狠狠地给了我一个巴掌。
我根本就没有预备好要孑身前往一个新地方展开新的生活。
我没有那个能耐。

就在这个时候我意外地拿下了一个在吉隆坡的就业机会。
这恰是一个我要的“转变”,并且也在我能接受的范围内。
就这样我按下了我人生的“F5”键

Park Kyung在影片中有说,
“通常我们听到别人说他辞退了工作,我们的反应都是 ‘哦,很好啊~’ 。貌似一个很简单的决定。我们认为要开始 ‘新的生活篇章’ 是个很容易的决定,但事实上要实践是有一定的难度。我认为这是个很勇敢的决定。


因为他的这一句话,我得到了很大的安慰。

在影片里他也有说,
“不要觉得自己(比别人)慢。不要认为自己已经停下来了(原地踏步)。我认为,停下来(休息)再跑起来是更明智的决定。就像我写的歌词一样 ‘慢一点或停下来都没有关系,没有关系,重新来过’ ”。

(要是有人可以帮我翻译成韩文寄给Kyung oppa看这一篇就好了~T^T 真的很谢谢他)

现在回想起来,这一切好像是上帝冥冥中安排似的。
11月开始新的工作,搬到和巧虹(以前大学屋友)住在一起。
2月成为正式员工。
3月18日全国开始实施行动管制令(movement control order)。
如今的公司规模比以前较大,经济基础上确实比较有实力。
也正因为我已经升职为正式员工,我的工作也得到了保障。
现在因为行动管制令,我们哪儿都不能去,只能呆在家里。
幸好我当时没有和陌生人一起租房子;现在有巧虹作个伴挺好(她还很会料理!)。

Thank God。
也感谢一路支持我的家人和朋友。❤😘
我还有不足,需要学习和辅助的地方。
未来的日子很长,请多多管教。
也让我们一起编写吧!

Monthly Project (April 2020)

#38 Unboxing Annual Gmarket Haul v2020


Hello everybody! It's me after 6 months! Gawd it has been ages T^T

If you love K-beauty products like me, you will know why I'm obsessed with Gmarket. I even hope that I'm staying in Korea just because of Gmarket. It's so convenient!

This time round I have not only purchase beauty products, but handbags as well. K-beauty brands which I've purchased from are Jayjun CosmeticSNP, Dr.Jart+, TONYMOLY and W.Dressroom. Handbags are from an online shop named BONNIE BOTTARI.




What's different from my previous unboxing? Welcome Hyeon to the YouTube world!

Yass, unboxing couldn't be more expressive and lively to do on video (than my long-winded writings lol).

The video is available in Chinese and English CC.



Any of the products above caught your eyes? :)

[Review] W.Dressroom Dress & Living Clear Perfume No. 34 Always Happy

Hello everyone! :)

Something different today as I'm going to share with you a living fragrance by W.Dressroom.

I bet many of you have come across this brand by now. Not sure for you, but I have been seeing advertisement all over social media platforms.


W.Dressroom Dress & Living Clear Perfume No. 34 Always Happy


A bit of the brand's background. It is founded by Korean designer Bum Seok Choi.




The brand is founded on the basis where perfume can be wear anywhere and everywhere. It's not just a perfume; it's a deodorant and also anti-bacteria spray.


A fresh and affordable eau de cologne where you can use it for bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, work place, car, shoe rack... everywhere!


Product Description

First, let's talk about the keynote for No. 34 Always Happy.





Top notes:
Fruits - Grapefruit, Green Note, Raspberry, Pear, Plum


Medium notes:
Floral - Jasmine, Rose, Violet, Litchi, Apple Blossom


Base:
Musk - Cedarwood, Musk


W.Dressroom Dress & Living Clear Perfume No. 34 Always Happy



Fragrance

It has this strong sweet floral scent, which I would imagine walking through a hallway full of cherry blossom. Very girly scent. It's definitely the scent of spring / love!





Unfortunately, the scent doesn't last long. You definitely have to reapply many times throughout the day if you want the scent to last longer.


Packaging

I don't know why I always imagine it to be glass packaging material, so I was taken-a-back when found it to be plastic packaging.


Well, it kinda makes sense as the brand is placing themselves as "affordable" fragrance, not something fancy or pricey.

It comes with a spray-head. Overall the packaging is quite a minimalistic one.


W.Dressroom Dress & Living Clear Perfume No. 34 Always Happy



Price

I bought the 70ml from Gmarket for KRW4,500 (approx. RM15+).



Price wise, I think it's quite reasonable as it meant for living fragrance.



Verdict

- Rating: 3.5/5

- Recommend: For those who enjoy fresh and light scent.

- Repurchase: Possible. I would definitely try out more scent from the brand.


For your reference.
