Captivating Soul

Be your own kind of beautiful

A quick update + another easy-peasy recipe!

안녕하세요, 친구! Hello, friends! What’s new? I hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far. 

What's new with me? Well... 

1) I can finally read, speak and understand hangul (한글)  – Korean characters. Okay, I am still a beginner but I can read a few sentences and understand it. Hopeful this continues so that one day I will no longer depend on subtitles and be completely clueless when listening to music. 

2) Dean is coming here in Vancouver and I am going to see him live! I cannot miss this opportunity. I. MUST. SEE. HIM. LIVE.

3) Son & Park’s Beauty Water is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I will talk about it on a separate post but I am just letting you know now that it is such a must-have product to have.

Anyway, I am really here because I have another recipe to share! Today I will be sharing a cottage cheese breakfast and/or snack. It is super as in you don’t even have to do anything but mix all the ingredients together and it’ll be ready for you to eat it!

So without further ado, let's get into this recipe.

All you really need is cottage cheese - preferably a non-fat one. Scoop 1 to 2 cups of cottage cheese and put it in a bowl - this can be flexible… you can add more/less if you want. Add in all the dry topping ingredients that you have at home including fruits if you have it. Drizzle some honey, sprinkle some unsweetened shredded coconut and mix it all up!

Now grab a spoon and take a bite.

Wasn’t that spectacular?

What is your go to easy breakfast recipe(s)? Share them down below. :)

Samsoonie Noodle & Rice

Korean Food | Casual Dining | $$ | Richmond, BC

You know that saying 'you don't have to go far because it might be just right around the corner'? Well, I totally felt that when I discovered Samsoonie Noodle & Rice!

A few weeks ago, my friend and I were craving for some Korean food. I wanted to try somewhere new and Samsoonie showed up with a pretty good rating on yelp. Instantly, I knew I had to try it and see for myself. 

Photos above were taken from the yelp website

From the look of the restaurant (inside and outside), it looked like it has been there for quite a long time now. Never thought there will be a hidden gem in that plaza! For those who are coming by car, do not worry because there are a lot of parking space around it. Doesn't it look very homey? 


Korean version of sushi. It's pretty good alright!


Fish Cake Hot Pot
This reminds me so much of those street food in South Korea. I am not a big fan of this one in particular but eating it brings back the memory of my trip. 


Mandu and Spicy Rice Cakes (tteokbokki) with chewy noodles
Last but not the least, my two favorites! I am not being biased because these are my favorite food, but they are good! I have no words to describe it so I am giving these my two thumbs up! 

I plan to come back more often in the future to try more food on their menu. I just need to bring my family or invite more friends because they have a pretty big serving.  Okay this post is making me hungry so I will end it right here. ヅ  

Have a lovely weekend, everyone! 


Last Minute Valentine's Day Makeup Look

Happy ♡ HEARTS ♡ day, everyone! What's your plan today? Or to those who live a day early, what did you do? I don't have any special plans tonight with anyone in particular but I do plan to do a little me-time. Meaning... I might go shopping. *wink* Any how, I filmed a video last night and I'd like to share it with you my version of last minute valentine's day makeup look. Teehee! (:

A Little Party Never Killed Nobody

Last Sunday Junelle's mom celebrated her birthday by throwing a 1920s theme party - a la great gatsby style. Since we don't often go to parties... most especially themed ones, we put a lot of effort on this one. Enhance the decoration and our attire! *wink*

I enjoyed styling my outfit, makeup and my hair. Even more, I am very satisfied that I didn't spend a lot to look good. YES to sale, dollar store, and thrift stores!
