I found a little charming townhouse in a nice location last week. It was cute and small, in a neighborhood that has zero amenities (which I want for low HOA, but is unbelievably hard to fine), and I was so so excited about finally finding the one, my one true love. Well, love is such a difficult thing. I got outbidded by an all-cash offer 😦 I'm now so exhausted from looking at homes all I want to do is watch lakorns.
I started out with Neung Nai Suang to continue my Ken Theradeth run but episodes have disappeared online and I'm stuck on ep 07. So to get my colonial period fix I moved on to Wanida (the remake version). The highbrow drama watchers would probably scorn it as a typical soap yada yada filled with actors who can't act yada yada. But it is so so my thing! He's from a declining old-money family while she's the daughter of a nouveau-riche loanshark. How are they affiliated? He's roped into marriage with her as payment to her father for his brother's debt, and of course along the way they learn to iron out their misunderstandings and differences. Okay, fine, have your chuckles. It's a lot more reasonable than a contract marriage and indentured servitude arising from a fraudulent home sale is all I'm saying. And no matter how many times it's been done, the bickering and making-up are so ridiculously addicting. I grin in glee everytime hero finds out heroine is actually an angel and he's been a douche. And I'm at the point now where he's feeling ze jalousie which is even better. I call the two leads the Thai Ken and Barbie – just as pretty and just as stiff. But they're so gorgeous, I almost forgive mine having to interpolate between their 3 expressions.
Bonus point: a very pretty OST
