Bittersweet Feelings

Today marks the end of Girls’ Generation with SM Entertainment.

Just as I opened Google Docs to start writing Heartbeat, I saw the news in Twitter stating that Sooyoung, Seohyun and Tiffany have decided not to sign on with SM. The remaining five of them, Taeyeon, Sunny, Yuri, Hyoyeon and Yoona have re-signed with SM.

I guess this news is expected some time ago and I’m truly thankful that the girls stayed on to give us a magical 10 year anniversary. Not many k-pop groups could do the same.

I’m grateful to meet and know people through Girls’ Generation. I made friends from all over the world; Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, US and more. We unite via SNSD and stand together as SONEs. I never regretted a single day as a SONE and Girls’ Generation will continue to hold a special place in my heart.

지금은 소녀시대 , 앞으로도 소녀시대 , 영원히 소녀시대.

She was a regular contributor to a lifestyle column in the local newspaper and had to submit an article every week. Deciding a noisy cafe was way too distracting for her, Wendy decided to work at home.

On the way to the train station, Wendy noticed a short queue forming outside a bakery. Curious, she stopped to take a look. There was a chalkboard sign placed outside the bakery with the handwritten words “Soft, tender and warm. Fall in love with our unforgettable chocolate bread today.”

Of gummies and candies

Jessica was pacing around the long table in the kitchen with an iPad in her hand. Her brows were furrowed and she was constantly muttering to herself. Out of the blue, she stopped and slammed her hand on the table and waving the iPad around with the other hand, causing her best friend to jump in fright.

“I don’t know what kind of cake to bake!” Jessica groaned before letting out a long sigh. Taeyeon’s birthday was coming up in a week and she planned to bake a birthday cake as a surprise for her. It was the first year they would be celebrating her birthday as a couple and she wanted to do something special for Taeyeon. She didn’t want to get any help from Yuri and Yoona for fear of letting the cat out of the bag, hence she engaged the help of her best friend Tiffany.
