Hello, everyone!! I’ve been back from my trip to Sri Lanka for a week and I’ve tested negative for covid which is a huge relief. I was unfortunately really sick when I got back – had major migraines, fever, and just overall relieved to be home lol.
It was a long trip with over 7+ hour power cuts some days. Some days the only thing to do was to cool off at the beach because there was no power and no electricity. That was also a nightmare trying to balance an online class on top of it but I somehow managed to do that. It was a hectic trip, but it was nice to see my grandmother and relatives that I haven’t seen in like two years.I’m glad to be back though and thankfully just in time for Eid. For those who are wondering, Eid is on Monday which means this weekend is the last few days of Ramadan.
Alright, so this first one is unfortunately one that I’ve already been given spoilers but I still want to know what happens. I started this before Ramadan and I’m excited to finish it.
Twenty Five Twenty One
Synopsis is from Asian Wiki:
Na Hee-Do is a member of her high school fencing team. Due to the South Korean financial crisis, the high school fencing team gets disbanded. Getting through all the difficulties, she becomes a member of the sabre fencing national team.
The South Korean financial crisis also causes Back Yi-Jin’s father’s business to go bankrupt. This leads to a life change for Back Yi-Jin, from living the life of a wealthy person to a poor person. While studying, he works part-time jobs like delivery newspapers. Later, he becomes a sports reporter for a broadcasting network.
I will do a full review after I watch all of it.
Shockingly this is one that I didn’t get any spoilers and I’m so excited to finish this as well.
I’ve only seen episode one (this was pre Sri Lanka trip) and it looks incredible. I did hear some things but thankfully nothing major.
