Best Gift from the King

Hehe, you don't think I am just going to leave this award topic without giving my 2 cents, do u? Some sisters commented that watching Yong Joon receiving the awards is the BEST gift from him in this New Year. I am gratified in many ways : happy to know that his recovery is progressing well, happy to see his beautifil smiling face again, of course ecstatic to watch him receiving the recognition for his hard work.

To begin with, it was a struggle to sit through an award show not knowing how much MBC would focus on Yong Joon, plus I have really been drained emotionally and physically in the last few weeks bidding goodbye to my friends. Ha, if you think I dragged myself up early, there are sisters who are more devoted than me. Coco and Jill were up at 4:30am their time ready, able and willing to watch! Sustained by their enthusiasm and companionship, so the 3 of us were chatting, drooling, oohing and aahing all the way for the next 3 hours .......

Enter with a Big Bang!

Have you seen anyone who is more elegant walking with crutches than him? Hehe, you think our King practised at home in front of the mirror how to walk gracefully with those cructhes? Just like in Winter Sonata - right foot, left foot, right foot ..... :)

From head to toe, he just personifies elegance - that clean tied-up ponytail (thank Q thank Q, I am so used to his long hair now), that warm radiant face, that tailored tuxedo, the dark dress coat, those polished shoes. Btw, I love the length of the dress coat, just at his knees revealing the silk-satin stripe on the side of the tuxedo pants, such a classy detail. Now makes me wonder : since he cannot bend his knee, how can he put on his own pants? Is there someone helping him get dressed?? Now, shake that thought off, naughty naughty me! :) He said his managers actually painted his crutches black (I guess so they wouldn't stand out too much), what a hip fashion statement. They think of everything, don't they?

And he even dropped his crutches and showed his injured finger to assure his fans that he's doing fine, he's always considerate and caring towards his family. Don't stick out too far, Yong Joon ssi, I am very tempted to grab and kiss it (now don't smack me :)

BTW, I also want to show E Ji Ah's own design, expresses a strong sense of herself. Notice she embroidered a word (which I still can't make out) with black yarn, then tied that to her index finger, how artsy and refreshing! This may not be everyone's taste but I like her for staying true to her own style.

And then there's Philip Lee, I think he dressed very hip in black vest and tie, perfect for a young actor.

Oh oh, I will have to continue the award ceremony in the next post as hubby just told me we have no more internet connection. The BIG MOVE for us tomorrow, remember? Will write later when I get a chance, ok? :)

Dear Jaime,

This is it! Crunch time! And you may not get this for days... Therefore, assuming this to be the case:

Happy landing in Tokyo! Hope the love of all your bae sis sustains you as you handle the urgent matters of setting up a temporary home in your new city of residence! We look forward to your return to Zoom, this warm and friendly home!

Extra special wishes for 2008, dear Jaime. We are with you in spirit, always...

Hi Jaime,

Have a very happy new year and a new home in wonderful Japan.
Do you know, Japan is the dream place for our family to live. My daughters are working very hard to get a good job and settle in Japan. Infact, the little one will be studying in Japan with the study abroad program from her school. so she is spending her senior year there. Not sure which school she will get in, either Osaka University or Nanzan University in Nagoya. The older one was in Nanzan in 2005.
Well, thanks very much for this enjoyable posting, it's so good to see our elegant king, being awarded for his hard work.

Dearest Jaime,

Wish you all the best settling in the new country. I am so sure you are going to see the "King" one day in Japan, our dream land, yes bae-family's dream land. Hubby did his Ph.D. study at Tokyo Institute of Technology but I did not get a chance to visit there during that time. Did I tell you last time I visited Tokyo in 2005 the same day I left from the Narita International Airport, wuri HRH just arrived two hours before me at the same airport? This I will never forget. Hope one day we can read your account of meeting HRH.

Love and take good care, hugs!

Dear Jaime and family,

Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu!! and welcome back to Japan.

I think you'll find Tokyo rather quiet except such places as Meiji Gingu Shrine, Asakusa Temple, and some shopping malls.

Hope your New Year will be filled with great joy and discoveries.
I and other Bae sis will patiently wait for your call until you settle down, but should you have any questions please don't hesitate to call me, OK?
