I am a Vincent Van Goh fan and would forever be in awe of such a genuis artist! This is why I am making a room for this breaking news.  Whoahhhh "Patch of Grass" has been renown and no one knew that before this one was another painting beneath?! But just look into how he transformed it from a woman to a patch of green grasses!  









Scientists have made a coloured view of an early rejected painting underneath Vincent van Gogh's Patch of Grass painting, using advanced X-ray techniques, a Dutch university said on Wednesday.



The very detailed image shows the face of a woman and may give art historians a better understanding of the way Van Gogh developed as a painter.
"It is estimated that one third of Vincent van Gogh's early paintings have been painted on top of existing ones. Van Gogh literally recycled his own canvasses," scientist Joris Dik of the Delft University of Technology said.
Conventional X-ray techniques give a colourless, partial view of the hidden painting and only show vague contours of a person behind Patch of Grass, the university said.
By recycling his work Van Gogh painted many layers over the original painting but the scientists managed to scan all the different elements in those layers of the relevant area with X-ray fluorescence.
"We can make a virtual 3-dimensional model of the painting and start to peel off all the layers one by one. Then we get a nice detailed view of the hidden face," Dik said.
Van Gogh painted Patch of grass in 1887 in Paris and it hangs in the Kroller-Muller museum in the Dutch eastern city of Otterlo.

I am about to finish Spring Waltz later. This is the last of Endless Love Season Drama which started from Winter Sonata, Autum in My Heart and Summer Scent. Spring Waltz was shown on ABS-CBN last year (i am not exactly sure) but this local network here seems to have a dry color on tv (is it my location? am i not on cable?)

I am drawn to the original version for the same bunches of reason.



Spring Waltz is another intensely touching lovestory of childhood friends who by the odd fate of poor lives met in a beautiful spring. Suhou, ( Seo Do-yeong)as a little boy repeatedly suffered from from his father's irresponsible behaviour, leaving him to an orphanage then the care under of his father's friend. His only wish and hope was to save coins so he could take a trip on the ferry and find his father. While living under a foster mother and the child Eunyung,( Han Hyo-joo)he was forced to go through life normally and with courage. From being an aloof, rough,mad, uncaring and selfish brother to a little sister by chance, things were then to change as he discovered that little sacrificing, giving and sweet Eunyung as a child was weak and needed an expensive operation to suvive.Both were drawn with each other in a strong and deep childhood friendship which was short-lived.





It was Suoho's father's decietful return which tricked them all in a deadly mess as he stole and ran away with the money wich eunyung'z mother diligently saved day to day for her operation. Unprepared and in shock with desperation, eunyung's mother left from their province to the busy Seoul just to hunt for her moeny back. NOt longer then, Suoho and Eunyung (who never wanted to part from her brother) travelled the same with the thought that they might find Suoho's father, retrieve what is left of the money and be reunited with Eunyung's mom. By some sudden bad and sad point, Eunyung's mother met an accient and died without their knowledge. The exhausting and starving journey for both kids made another sad turn. Eunyung was gravely ill and Suohu was rushed her to the hospital. Without the money, needed for operation, he was almost hopeles until he met another woman patient. The woman mistook Souhoo to be her late son. The utter pain of separation started here. Helpless Suoho, despite his unwillingness was forced to make the final decision to leave his entire life and being as Suoho and become the frustrated couple's new "jaeha". He made a step to completely abandon his real identity and be away from Eunyung for good in exchange of Eunyung's survival.





Assuming a different life and name, he flew to a foriegn country and both grew up apart. 15 years after he became a renown pianist, still under the tormoil of his painful past and hunted by it and Eunyung a struggling girl. Their paths crossed unexpectedly , unknowingly in Austria where She joined an arts competition. Eunyung taking on a bit of change on her name and Suoho with a complete change on his own, who knew nothing only falsely, that he once tried to save the girl who never survived enough to live. both trapped in a whirlwind fate. To step into each other's path once more, his best friend Philip (Daniel Henney) will have to meet the same girl and fall in love with her.It will take breaking hearts to be with each other and to realize somewhere who they both really are as then and now and tomorrow.





Souho/Jaeha'z family will keep their dark secret as long as they can to keep him as their son, and a frustrated Yina will do anything she can to keep him as the Jaeha in her childhood love memories even when it is but a make believe. People in love will do all they can to keep the ones they love but in the one one must give up i am sure.

ONE LOVE
by Acel Bisa

Higher than the sky above you
Clearer than blue
Brighter than the rays of sunshine
Warmer than what you feel
More than all the wonders you see
It's the most wonderful thing

Brighter than the living colors of flowers you see
Sweeter than the touch of water
Flowing from the mountain spring
More than all the wonders you see
It's the most wonderful thing

One love...
I love you so
Love is the beautiful one
I love you so
Love is the beautiful one
All we need is love
Real love

Marvel at the sight of greenfields
Amazingly seen
Watch the colors of the rainbow
It's a miracle you see
More than all the wonders can be
But there's more than that

One Love...
I love you so
Love is the beautiful one

Greater than what you can feel
More than what you ever dreamed
This is better than your everything
One love...

I love you so
Love is the beautiful one

All we need is love
One love

I'm getting more hooked on korean drama series. It's not that it's my first time to watch some this year. I was a good follower of Winter Sonata, Autumn in my Heart, Stairway to Heaven, Coffee Prince, Full House and others but I guess its different when you see it dubbed into tagalog with revised soundracks.  I've heard and had glimspse of  "Which Star Are You From"  shown over ABS-CBN and even "Princess HOurs" but it didn't catch my attention much until i got them on dvd's.

I can't believe how i make room to watch pure korean drama these days and how I'm starting to be quite contagious. I am even looking forward to collecting all-korean drama series and to take time watching those i've seen via local netwoks knowing it would make me love and appreciate those stories.

Compared to spanish and filipinodrama series what makes Korean taste distinctively exciting and soul-captivating?

1.  Theirstories touches the heart and deeper.

2. They have brilliantly sensitive scripts it makes me more attached and charmed by their philosophic and  poetic verses. Those you'd love to replay again and again and those that stick with you like life's lessons.

3. I should admit that Korean drama series are more sweetly conservativeThey have reduced violence and sex all through out. It's the type young ones should watch about love. While on our tv, scenes of violence and lust is prolonged unnecessarily, they made a point that those types got no space on their drama. You can see love and feel it, bt never cheap lusty style. You may see and feel hatred and vengeance too but never  bloody devilish, hannibal lectern-ish! I'm definitely sick of those!

4. They have soundtracks which  do make a complete romantic,heart-pounding or tearing flow. Soundtracks that would feel just like a perfect background of nature with human heart at the centerstage.

5. I love how their stories reveal a lot on how they value their arts, culture, tradition, and spiritual beliefs. 

6. I love how they remind me that spa isn't suppose to be just for upper class ladies and that it's part of natural hygiene. No wonder, they have sooo  beautiful silky skin!

7. I love the innate acting talents of their stars not to mention that they too have appealing  guyz if not totally asianly gorgeous!

8. Their story is in every way run from one curve to another with a steadily mounting pace. You can't wait for a chapter to end and for another to start. No overexposed boring and worthless scenes! It is simply addicting!

Have you ever watched Dr. Heo Jun? I did on Arirang before and it was the only drama series shown around 12midnight phils. time which nevertheless I never failed to wach episode to episode. Watch it when you can and you'll know what i mean. :)

LOST WITHOUT YOUR LOVE
Bread ( original version)
Lost and all alone
I always thought that I could make it on my own
Since you left I hardly make it through the day
My tears get in the way
And I need you back to stay

I wander through the night
And search the world to find
the words to make it right
All I want is just the way it used to be
With you here close to me
I've got to make you see

That I'm lost without your love
Life without you isn't worth the trouble of
I'm as helpless as a ship without a wheel
A touch without a feel
I can't believe it's real...

And someday soon I'll wake
And find my heart won't have to break

Yes I'm lost without your love
Life without you isn't worth the trouble of
All I want is just the way it used to be
I need you here with me
Oh darlin' can't you see...
If we had love before
We can have it back once more

I wish i'll have someone who can interpret the lyrics. A hundred times, i know i'll love these songs. Korean drama is at its best when you watch it straight from dvd's not on abs-cbn or gma7. One of the reasons for that is, there's no substitute for their soundtracks!

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

Translation for the Miracle:

Even though I raise my two hands to hide the heavens
As though nothing can be kept hidden
My loving heart can't be hidden either. I love you.
Afraid of the goodbye that's behind love
I'm terrified. I'm never letting you go
I'll never make you regret my love for you

The hidden sky's dark and
Even though the road in front of us may be blocked,it's ok
My love's strength will shine for you. Don't worry

Because I love you,love you so much
Until my breath stops
I won't forget you even until I'm at the end of this world
Because I dream of you,dream of you so much
Although fate may catch me
It won't take away my love
Because you are my reason for living

I will take care of your past hurt
Now find your happiness
When your walk becomes heavy,until you stop,I will help you

The hidden sky's dark and
Even though the road in front of us may be blocked,it's ok
My love's strength will shine for you. Don't worry

Because I love you,love you so much
Until my breath stops
I won't forget you even until I'm at the end of this world
Because I dream of you,dream of you so much
Although fate may catch me
It won't take away my love
Because you are my reason for living

I spent 3 sleepless nights last week just to watch "which star are you from" and i should say it is one ofthe best korean love stories I can't seem to get over with. The story left a lingering touch which keeps me lovestrucked...even now.







I've seen Kim Rae Won on Attic Cat with the late model/actress Jeong Da Bin and Love Story In Harvard with
Kim Tae-Hee (who once played a villain as Eunice on a well-known Stairway to Heaven) However, i think i've completely fallen for Kim Rae Won as he played Cuishenxi, a broken-hearted director who after years of tormoil and guilt at the loss of his girlfriend in a car accident, took a trip to the rural areas of Korea. He then met a young, innocent villager, BokSil/KinFushi (played by Jung Ryu Won) with a striking resemblance of the girl he lost but whose life, gestures,manners proved to be a complete opposite. More than this, it was this girls' plain, simple, carefree and yet honest,brave and and strong ideals in life which slowly swept a guy like him into what people around him never thought possible.



As both fell in love with each other deeper, a bitter twist of fate stepped in as the truth of Boksil/kinfushi's real self unfolds. The girl by an odd chance turns out to be Hailin, the lost sister of Shenxi's late girlfriend, Haixu whose family belongs in an upper class, who's mother couldn't seem to accept nor forgive.



Feel the intense love and pain from mother to mother to daughter as Boksil/fushi becomes Hailin with a new mother who turns her into a fairytale-cinderela. This story shows how deep a mother's love can go and what it does take to be a real mother.



Feel the intense heat of love and pain as the lost cinderela is caught up in the middle of the web of hatred, grudge and both were forcibly locked apart .

Feel the moving power of how both of them fought against all odds, and feel what love can and must do to live on. Feel their passion,pain,joys,sufferings and how both endure every inch.


Feel the heart-breaking and yet healing grace of love in the end.



Grab a copy of this dvd and watch it if you haven't and once more know what real love is.

Wahhh watch my bet Ms. Venezuela, Dayana Mendoza take the the throne!
ummm my top 3 choices right from top 20
Kosovo,Columbia,Venezuela



ooops but what's wrong with MS. USA again? wahhhhh
I can't believe for the second time in a row, a miss USA would fall again.


Ms. Usa 2008 Crystle Stewart




Ms. USA 2007 Rachel Smith




Umm what do i say? Two fall's and two of them rising up somehow i honestly think Rachel Smith did a better and smarter way to reboost her dignignity with how she stood up than Ms. Stewart. Hmmm I just feel that she shouldnt have raised her hand to make an upward hand clapping gesture as it did only looked more pathetic, lousy and desperate, which turned out an opposite negative effect than she intended.

Wahhh I hope this wouldn't strain the next Miss USA with some phobia. Wahhh who knows from two fall's the year to come would make Miss USA the New Miss Universe at last and once again!
