Visit Korea – ☆ National Hangeul Museum

I went to the National Hangeul Museum last month. There are another museum called the National Museum of Korea. But I was interested in Hangeul more.. so I went there first.

They provide “Exhibition Tours” in English on Wednesday 1:00 pm. & in Chinese on Thursday 1:00 pm. & in Japanese on Friday 1:00pm. It was Saturday when I visited, so I took the leaflet in English, Korean and Japanese. I wonder the translation so.. just in case.

I think the Hangeul is the greatest character in the whole World. Amazing!! the shapes and the sounds… You could notice from the creation of Hangeul.

===================================

Hangeul was created in 1443. (not a long time ago… compared to other old characters) Although Hangeul was invented approximately five hundred years ago, the principle behind its invention still remains competent from the perspective of the moder linguistics.
Hangeul is the first script that distinguishes the initial, middle and final sound of a syllable. In addition, it maintains a scientific principle in which the consonants and vowels that are similar in their pronunciations resemble one another in their shapes.
(I wonder how…? King Sejong could see..? X-ray was founded in 1895 but it was very far from Korea. hmm… interesting part..)
Hangeul is the alphabet that perfectly delivers the Korean language. Furthermore, for its creativeness and scientific value, it is highly esteemed by linguists all over the world.

When I get a flu, my first step is Ginger Tea

It’s a winter and Christmas season now. I’m a weak at flu every this season. How about you? Right after I feel cold, I used to buy Ginger tea bottle and drink hot ginger tea until the end of my flu. Do you feel uncomfortable on you throat today? I strongly recommend you to try this.

Ginger has been used to relieve a sore throat and  flu. It warms up  body and cleans up blood. Even more it’s also useful for stomach trouble, vomit and nausea. If you has been suffered by chronic indigestion, everyday ginger water instead of your usual drinking water will help you to digest more easily and sooth your stomach trouble day by day.

Not only ginger tea, I prefer a Lemon mixed honey sweeten ginger tea. Lemon and Honey also strengthen my immunity when I struggle  with flu virus. Lemon is full of vitamin C, which can help reduce the duration and severity of symptoms of flu. Honey is speechless.

 


 

My Recipe

 

  • 2~3 fresh gingers (by size)

  • 1 oz 100% lemon juice

  • 1/2 cup honey

  • A glass bottle

 

  1. Peel out gingers and Cut off thin slice

Where tradition and history alive

One of my bucket list would have been to Egypt.  Pyramids, museums, markets and people …. It seemed important to first learn about Egypt before I can make my trip to Egypt.

Flag of Egypt.

Flag_of_Egypt.svg

 

The flag of Egypt (Egyptian Arabic: علم مصر, IPA: [ˈʕælæm ˈmɑsˤɾ]) is a tricolour consisting of the three equal horizontal red, white, and black bands of the Arab Liberation flag dating back to the Egyptian Revolution of 1952. The flag bears Egypt’s national emblem, the Eagle of Saladin centered in the white band.

Language

The official language of the Republic is Modern Standard Arabic.[11] Arabic was adopted by the Egyptians after the Arab invasion of Egypt.   Thespoken languages are: Egyptian Arabic (68%), Sa’idi Arabic (29%), Eastern Egyptian Bedawi Arabic (1.6%), Sudanese Arabic (0.6%), Domari (0.3%),Nobiin (0.3%), Beja (0.1%), Siwi and others. Additionally, Greek, Armenian and Italian are the main languages of immigrants. In Alexandria in the 19th century there was a large community of Italian Egyptians and Italian was the “lingua franca” of the city.

The main foreign languages taught in schools, by order of popularity, are English, French, German and Italian.

Religion

Egypt is a predominantly Sunni Muslim country with Islam as its state religion. The percentage of adherents of various religions is a controversial topic in Egypt. An estimated 90% are identified as Muslim, 9% as Coptic Christians, and 1% as other Christian denominations.  Non-denominational Muslims form roughly 12% of the population

Culture

Egypt is a recognized cultural trend-setter of the Arabic-speaking world. Contemporary Arabic and Middle-Eastern culture is heavily influenced by Egyptian literature, music, film and television. Egypt gained a regional leadership role during the 1950s and 1960s, giving a further enduring boost to the standing of Egyptian culture in the Arabic-speaking world

[Imagine, John Lennon / Song by Shakira]  Peace Dreamers are speaking “The world will be as One”

John Lennon sang a song for the world peace and love for all human being, Imagine. This is a Shakira version song in UN’s General Assembly 2015. She is working for Child education. In this reason, This singing is touching more meaningful in me.

I love this part “Living Life in Peace.” I hope some day living life in peace. No tears because of war. No weapon. But living all the people as one.

You may say I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one.

I hope someday you will join us. And the world will be as one.

I’m sure we can be the one for Peace. No matter skin color, gender, age or even a religion. Peace is not a personal own. Every human being has the right for peace. I’m not the only one. And you are not the only one. Everyone want peace. Why not?  Let’s be a dreamer for peace. This dream will come true for sure.


–  Imagine –

Imagine there is no heaven

It’s easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people

Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries

It isn’t hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion, too

Imagine all the people

Living life in Peace

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you will join us

And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people

Sharing all the world

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you will join us

And the world will be as one

A Song For Peace

“One Day”

by  Matisyahu

https://youtu.be/WRmBChQjZPs

Matisyahu 1

Sometimes I lay
Under the moon
And thank God I’m breathing
Then I pray
Don’t take me soon
‘Cause I am here for a reason

Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds

 I know some day it’ll all turn around because…

All my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don’t wanna fight no more
There will be no more wars
And our children will play
One day [6x]

It’s not about
Win or lose
‘Cause we all lose
When they feed on the souls of the innocent
Blood-drenched pavement
Keep on moving  though the waters stay raging

In this maze you can lose your way (your way)
It might drive you crazy but don’t let it faze you, no way (no  way)

Matisyahu 4
“One Day” is a song by Jewish reggae singer Matisyahu from his third album Light. The song expresses a hope for an end to violence and a prayer for a new era of peace and understanding.

The song was used extensively as the theme song for NBC’s Countdown to Vancouver Olympics campaign. The song continued to be used during NBC’s Olympic broadcasts, from soundtracking montages to scoring bumpers. Matisyahu explained to MTV News that even though it wasn’t written expressly for the games, the themes and goals of the track ended up applying perfectly. “I wanted to write a song that was an accessible global anthem for hope and peace,” he told MTV News. “I don’t know exactly how it came about, but somebody heard it and thought it would be a good fit.”

Matisyahu tells Spinner. “It is an anthem of hope with a big beat, the kind of song that makes you bob your head and open your heart at the same time.” In an interview with Matisyahu “‘One Day’ is the song I’ve been wanting to make since I started my career,”

Traditional Art of Maramures, Romania

Maramures, Romania

I love the Egg Craft. It’s one of my wishlist to learn someday. All country has their own traditional Art. It’s unique and beautiful. Romania isn’t the only country famous for Egg Craft, but everybody can sure its unique quality.

This intricate patterns were secret languages known only to residents of the regions where they were painted. But Whatever pattern has meaning on the cover of eggs, the result always looks beautiful.

Maramures Village is also famous for wooden architecture. Most impressive are the old traditional churches. All of them are completely constructed out of wood, some of them even date back to the 16th century and are protected by UNESCO.

A lot of these churches are still in use these days. Breb, the village where Babou Maramures is situated, has also a traditional old wooden church, one of the oldest, which is still used for religious practice.

Also in this lovely region we can enjoy cozy natural sites. Forests where is perfectly suited for walking, Rock climbing, Bike, Skiing and Snowboarding. My favorite season of Romania is winter. Romanian traditional art spirit comes out from beautiful nature.

History, passion, and food!!!

Barcelona, Spain
Barcelona, the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, is defined by quirky art and architecture, imaginative food and vibrant street life. It has medieval roots, seen in the mazelike Gothic Quarter, but a modernist personality represented by architect Antoni Gaudí’s fantastical Sagrada Família church. Its restaurant scene, anchored by the central Boqueria market, ranges from fine dining to tiny tapas bars.
Sagrada_Familia_01
Construction of Sagrada Família had commenced in 1882 and Gaudí became involved in 1883,  taking over the project and transforming it with his architectural and engineering style, combining Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms. Gaudí devoted his last years to the project, and at the time of his death at age 73 in 1926, less than a quarter of the project was complete. Sagrada Família’s construction progressed slowly, as it relied on private donations and was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War, only to resume intermittent progress in the 1950s. Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with some of the project’s greatest challenges remaining  and an anticipated completion date of 2026, the centenary of Gaudí’s death.
FCB
Barcelona is one of the most supported teams in the world, and has the largest social media following in the world among sports teams.  Barcelona’s players have won a record number of Ballon d’Or awards (10), as well as a record number of FIFA World Player of the Year awards. In 2010, the club created history when three players who came through its youth academy (Messi, Iniesta and Xavi) were chosen as the three best players in the world in the FIFA Ballon d’Or awards, an unprecedented feat for players from the same football school.
spain-beach
Barceloneta is the first of the Barcelona beaches and can therefore get quite busy during the summer months. The picture of Barceloneta beach above was taken on 3rd of October, and the sun is still shining! But it’s not always like this. Some days can be overcast or even rainy.
There are plenty of things to do on the beach besides swim. Windsurfing and kite surfing are popular. You can also enjoy a refreshing drink from one of the many beach huts. Or, if you’re in need of a rest, just lie down and soak up the warmth of the Spanish sun with a good book.
Paella
Paella is a Valencian rice dish with ancient roots that originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century near the Albufera lagoon, a coastal lagoon in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain.

Put down all the worries and let’s go experience Spain!  Bon Voyage.
