Dae Jang Geum. Most people are familiar with this name, thanks to the eponymous Korean drama which was popular in the Philippines a couple of years ago. She’s the first female royal physician during the Joseon Dynasty.
And because it was such a hit, I just had to buy this gold-plated bookmark from South Korea as a souvenir.
Being the obsessive/compulsive person that I am, I felt the need to unearth my bookmarks and use them for every book. This is evidence that I am getting back to the groove when it comes to reading—piles of papers and academic books, for now.
P.S. Schoolwork makes me want to shop till I drop in a bookstore and buy the randomest of things, like a paper shredder with good shredder ratings, quick drying correction tape and a dozen yellow highlighters, my favorite.
