Life of Pi is a masterful and utterly original novel that is at once the story of a young castaway who faces immeasurable hardships on the high seas, and a meditation on religion, faith, art and life that is as witty as it is profound. Using the threads of all of our best stories, Yann Martel has woven a glorious spiritual adventure that makes us question what it means to be alive, and to believe.

Growing up in Pondicherry, India, Piscine Molitor Patel -- known as Pi -- has a rich life. Bookish by nature, young Pi acquires a broad knowledge of not only the great religious texts but of all literature, and has a great curiosity about how the world works. His family runs the local zoo, and he spends many of his days among goats, hippos, swans, and bears, developing his own theories about the nature of animals and how human nature conforms to it. Pi’s family life is quite happy, even though his brother picks on him and his parents aren’t quite sure how to accept his decision to simultaneously embrace and practise three religions -- Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam.

But despite the lush and nurturing variety of Pi’s world, there are broad political changes afoot in India, and when Pi is sixteen his parents decide that the family needs to escape to a better life. Choosing to move to Canada, they close the zoo, pack their belongings, and board a Japanese cargo ship called the Tsimtsum. Travelling with them are many of their animals, bound for zoos in North America. However, they have only just begun their journey when the ship sinks, taking the dreams of the Patel family down with it. Only Pi survives, cast adrift in a lifeboat with the unlikeliest of travelling companions: a zebra, an orang-utan, a hyena, and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.

Thus begins Pi Patel’s epic, 227-day voyage across the Pacific, and the powerful story of faith and survival at the heart of Life of Pi. Worn and scared, oscillating between hope and despair, Pi is witness to the playing out of the food chain, quite aware of his new position within it. When only the tiger is left of the seafaring menagerie, Pi realizes that his survival depends on his ability to assert his own will, and sets upon a grand and ordered scheme to keep from being Richard Parker’s next meal.

As the days pass, Pi fights both boredom and terror by throwing himself into the practical details of surviving on the open sea -- catching fish, collecting rain water, protecting himself from the sun -- all the while ensuring that the tiger is also kept alive, and knows that Pi is the key to his survival. The castaways face gruelling pain in their brushes with starvation, illness, and the storms that lash the small boat, but there is also the solace of beauty: the rainbow hues of a dorado’s death-throes, the peaceful eye of a looming whale, the shimmering blues of the ocean’s swells. Hope is fleeting, however, and despite adapting his religious practices to his daily routine, Pi feels the constant, pressing weight of despair. It is during the most hopeless and gruelling days of his voyage that Pi whittles to the core of his beliefs, casts off his own assumptions, and faces his underlying terrors head-on.

As Yann Martel has said in one interview, “The theme of this novel can be summarized in three lines. Life is a story. You can choose your story. And a story with an imaginative overlay is the better story.” And for Martel, the greatest imaginative overlay is religion. “God is a shorthand for anything that is beyond the material -- any greater pattern of meaning.” In Life of Pi, the question of stories, and of what stories to believe, is front and centre from the beginning, when the author tells us how he was led to Pi Patel and to this novel: in an Indian coffee house, a gentleman told him, “I have a story that will make you believe in God.” And as this novel comes to its brilliant conclusion, Pi shows us that the story with the imaginative overlay is also the story that contains the most truth.

The Perfect Game



THE PERFECT GAME



He's a game she never intended to play.

The Duff: Designated Ugly Fat Friend




the DUFF


Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face. 

But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.

Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.

Kane Richards Must Die by Shanice Williams


After an unexpected transfer to the States for her senior year, Suranne's new friends give her just one instruction: stay away from Kane Richards. According to everyone, he's a heartless playboy concerned only for himself. With one glance, it's easy to see why he gets away with it. But things aren't always what they seem, especially when he sets his sights on her and whispers that she's different.
Despite all the red flags, Suranne considers whether or not his intentions are genuine or if she's simply another name on his list.
In the process, she may just uncover the real Kane Richards. But, when it comes down to it, the real Kane Richards may not want to be found. Filled with raw emotion, Kane Richards Must Die explores relationships, trust, love, and what can happen when life takes an unexpected turn.

hmm... Just finished this book. After Find You in The Dark, I really do not want to come across any stupid erotica book anymore, so I chose this one since it is labelled young adult. And guess what? This one is pretty much a book for slightly MATURE young adult (which I am) and I'm so not happy with the slihtly MATURE parts. Call me immature or what, but I prefer sweet love stories over sweet stupid heated ones. Well at least this one is better than Find You in The Dark in the romance section. If you're a fan of making outs, this is so your kind of book, but if you're like me, this one is just okay. Okay the story follows Suranne love story with an infamous playboy in her new school, Kane. She has been warned about him but she still falls in love with him and surprisingly (or is it not-surprisingly?) he falls for her too. And they are head over heels over each other. And basically, that's all this book is about. And Kane's secret? Not that big to me, plain normal I'd call it. Well for the sweet parts, I gotta give this book 4 stars too. The one star got stolen by the cliche parts in the story. As an overall, this book is a sweet read. Read it if you're planning to.

Spoiler:

Surenne goes back to London, and after graduation, Kane goes there too.

Mini review: Find You in the Dark by A. Meredith Walters




Find You in the Dark
by A. Meredith Walters

Maggie Young had the market on normal. Normal friends, normal parents, normal grades...normal life.
Until him.
Clayton Reed was running from his past and an army of personal demons that threatened to take him down. He never thought he had a chance at happiness.
Until her.
Maggie thought their love could overcome anything. Clay thought she was all he needed to fix his messy life.
That together, they could face the world.
But the darkness is always waiting.
Sometimes the greatest obstacle to true love is within yourself.

 My Thoughts:


I picked up this book because I love the topic discussed in, mental illness plus brooding hero is just so my kind of hero lol The writing was great, the characters were nice. So what about the story right? hmmm... This book is so not for young adult, I can be sure about that. There are some steamy scenes in it which young adults like me should skip. As an overall, the story is nice. Although Clay's problems are a bit scary for me and Maggie is a bit naive at times. A sentence to fully describe this book : Clay needs Maggie and Maggie needs Clay. (SPOILER ALERT!) The ending is nice, with Clay letting her go although they are so raspberrying in love with each other.. I give this book 4 stars for the awesome story and the simple writing. The missing star is for the steamy scenes lol


Mini Review: The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski


Book Description
Publication Date: November 13, 2012
Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.
Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she's ever known, far behind.
With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.
But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she'd do. He shows her what it's really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew's dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?

My Thoughts:

I read this book a few days ago, not sure when though. This book just went out and most (or is it all?) of them said that this book is great. And Guess what? This book is NOT great. It's just fine for me. The first half was great, but the other half was terrible. I didn't realize when picking this book that it is an adult bookwhich is so raspberrying stupid of me so certain parts of it suck, I mean really suck. The main characters are hard to relate to. Honestly, who would suddenly go out and start and adventure just because they're pissed off with their best friend?! And who on earth would trust a guy enough to follow him on an adventure, alone? Okay, believe me, this book is so raspberrying boring, well at least for me. I can't even give it a star. I'd never ever recommend anyone to read this book, never! And the best decision I have made so far is  deciding not to finish this book lol Okay, just read it when if you feel like it, if you are still hesitating, JUST DON'T!

Want by Stephanie Lawton

Want by Stephanie Lawton



Synopsis:

Julianne counts the days until she can pack her bags and leave her old-money, tradition-bound Southern town where appearance is everything and secrecy is a way of life. A piano virtuoso, she dreams of attending a prestigious music school in Boston. Failure is not an option, so she enlists the help of New England Conservatory graduate Isaac Laroche to help her.

She can’t understand why he suddenly gave up Boston’s music scene to return to the South. He doesn’t know her life depends on escaping it. Julianne must face down madness from without, just as it threatens from within. Isaac must resist an inappropriate attraction, but an indiscretion at a Mardi Gras ball-the pinnacle event for Mobile’s elite-forces their present wants and needs to collide with sins of the past.

Will Julianne accept the help she’s offered and get everything she ever wanted, or will she self-destruct and take Isaac down with her?

Crow's Row : A Book Review


Crow's Row (Crow's Row #1)
by Julie Hockley



SYNOPSIS
For college student Emily Sheppard, the thought of spending a summer alone in New York is much more preferable than spending it in France with her parents. Just completing her freshman year at Callister University, Emily faces a quiet summer in the city slums, supporting herself by working at the campus library. During one of her jogs through the nearby cemetery while visiting her brother Bill's grave, Emily witnesses a brutal killing-and then she blacks out. When Emily regains consciousness, she realizes she's been kidnapped by a young crime boss and his gang. She is hurled into a secret underworld, wondering why she is still alive and for how long.

Held captive in rural Vermont, she tries to make sense of her situation and what it means. While uncovering secrets about her brother and his untimely death, Emily falls in love with her very rich and very dangerous captor, twenty-six year- old Cameron. She understands it's a forbidden love and one that won't allow her to return to her previous life. But love may not be enough to save Emily when no one even knows she is missing

MY THOUGHTS
A friend of mine gave me a copy of this book a few days ago. I don't know what to expect of it, so the first thing I checked was the ending. And reading the ending, I felt positive that I wouldn't read the book. Period. But guess what? I couldn't help but read it although I hate the ending! lol

One word to describe this book: AWESOME! (well in my world it's called raspberrying awesome lol). Everything is awesome. The plot is great. The characters are sweet. The setting is cool. The whole story is perfect. This book is the best book I've read so far (minus my favorite book, A Season of Eden lol).

Okay lets talk about the characters.

Firstly, Emily is a nineteen years old college girl. She stumbles upon a gang leader and gets kidnapped after witnessing a murder done by the handsome guy. The guy keeps him at his house. He's nice and does nothing to hurt her. Overprotective at times.

Next, Cameron. He's a twenty something guy who is a respectable gang leader. He keeps Emily as a captive in his house not really sure what to do with her. he's just trying to protect her.

Other than that, there's Rocco (my favorite character!), Cameron's brother. He's funny, and nice at times. Quite childish but is a good friend of Emily.

How the story goes? Easy. (Spoiler!) Eventually, Cameron and Emily fall in love with each other. Emily starts loving Cameron's friends. He works, and she stays at home. (And this is where I wanted the story to end, Happily Ever After, but no, it doesn't end this way!). One day the house gets attacked, and my beloved Rocco got killed. The attacker wants Emily (because she sorts of have lots of money left by her former-gang-leader-but-dead-brother). Emily escapes and has a good time with Cameron alone for a few days before she gets kidnapped again, by a dangerous gang leader who wants the money. (Yeah, people just love to kidnap her!). The gang leader tries to rape her. Cameron saves her. Cameron gets shot. She cries.

The end: Emily goes back to her old house, with Cameron's dog. She refuse to receive Cameron's money. She's thinking bout seeking a revenge for the death of Cameron, her brother (Bill) and Rocco. And Cameron is alive!!! He wants Emily to be away because he wants her to be safe. He returns to his old life. No, they don't end up together c:

Okay, here's my favorite quotes from the book:

"Whoever said that love hurts was wrong. Love is excruciating, especially when you can feel it slipping through your fingers and there is nothing you can do about it. Like someone was playing tug-of-war with my limbs, ripping to shreds whatever was left behind. What it would feel like when love was lost … I wouldn’t survive that. I closed my eyes, willing the tears to stay hidden behind my eyelids and focusing on breathing in and out instead of the pain that was ramming in my heart." - Emmily or Emmy


"How do you know when you’re There, I had once wondered. Maybe you’re lucky enough to notice the moment it’s happening to you. Maybe you’re able to block out all the other stuff that is, in the end, just background noise. But, most often, you don’t know that you were There until you lose it, or until it gets taken away from you. When you look back, you clearly see that time, that place, when all the pieces of you had finally fit together to make you blissfully happy, make you your whole self. Like one of those jumbo puzzles that take up your entire kitchen table for weeks, the tiny pieces are just cardboard shapes with colors splashed on them, and they don’t make any sense until you find their rightful place among the other pieces. When you put the last piece into place and the pieces now form a complete picture, that’s when you’re There. But while you were busy thinking about gluing the puzzle together, so that the pieces would never be apart again, someone comes from behind you, destroys the last piece and throws the rest of the pieces away. Even if you could muster up enough courage to put the pieces back together, the picture would never be complete again, because of the last missing piece … which, as it turned out, was smack in the middle, or in the heart, of the picture." -Emily or Emmy

"Knowing that Emmy was out there safe, living her life, even if it was without me, was enough … it had to be." - Cameron

OKAY GUYS, YOU NEED TO READ THIS ONE!!!! YEAH< I'M YELLING LIKE A SARGEANT HERE!!! SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???? OKAY, I'm sorry, that's a lil bit rude. Just read it okay, and share my giddiness.. xoxo

Mini Review: LINDY’S DIARY by Alex Flinn

Just finished this book~


See the #1 New York Times bestselling story Beastly through Lindy's eyes! This is her diary, kept while living in captivity with the beast.Lindy's Diary captures all the romance and edgy mystery of the original!




Diary,




I am locked away . . . with no one to confide in but you . . . and him. His fur, those claws—they caught me off guard at first, but now I'm noticing something else about him—something deeper. It's the look in his eye. It tells me he's got a secret to keep. That's okay—I've got one, too. I think I'm falling in love with him. . . .




Lindy

My Thoughts:

This is such  a sweet Beauty and The Beast book, a modern version of it. It was written in a diary format and I love it! Although I stopped loving fairy tales years ago, this book has been a very interesting read for me. The stuff are easy to figure out and the writing is simple.

Review: The Breakaway by Michele Davidson Argyle


Goodreads Summary:

Escape isn't high on her list of priorities when all she has to return to is an abusive boyfriend and parents who never paid much attention to her. For the first time in her life she's part of a family-even if it is a family of criminals. But she's still a captive. In a desperate attempt to regain some control in her life, Naomi embarks on a dangerous plan to make one of her kidnappers think she's falling in love with him. The plan works too well, and when faced with the chance to escape, Naomi isn't sure she wants to take it.

Pushing The Limits~

I read this book a few weeks ago and I stumbled upon it again tonight. I surfed the net and found out that this book has lots of pretty reviews and compliments. So why on Earth am I creating this post? Because I sort of disagree with them all!

Here's some info on this book:


Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits #1)
by Katie McGarry (Goodreads Author)

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.
Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

Reading the summary, I got eager to read it. And guess what? I got disappointed! Well my reasons are:

1. What is Echo thinking falling for a troublemaker like him when she has such a great boyfriend?
2. The story is all flat. Nothing that happens in it isn't expected.
3. The story is so dragging. The family issues are overrated.
4. Whats with the connection between the main characters? They get close without having to work on it, weird.

I'll give this book 2 stars~

Review: Nice Guy

So Nice Guy has ended, meaning it's over. I'm terrible at reviewing but who cares since I'm pretty much bored right now~

As an overall this drama is quite cool. I love the revenge part but I hate the amnesia part. And the company/business part is off my radar. The ending is quite predictable but the way the writer delivered the story is quite cool with few flashbacks and stuff.

My favorite stuff are:

1. Eunki is so freaking awesome at being mean and honest
2. Maru is so freaking nice when he is nice and can be so cold when he wants to
3. Choco is such a cute girl
4. Jaehee is so damn good at taking advantage of people
5. Jaeshik is a good-hearted evil man
6. Chairman Seo is so strict
7. Joonha is such a nice friend who's willing to do lots of things for Eunki
8. Jaegil is such a very nice friend of Maru, and sweet at times
9. Eunuk is cute
10. Maru's prof is hot lol

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay


So I finished this book in 7 hours. No, don't laugh at me, I'm just that slow at reading although this book is so interesting. I'll blame that on my poor english though. Well whatever because i am not writing this post to explain bout me being a slow reader, this post is dedicated to my love of this book. Yeah, I love this book!




here's the summary:

I live in a world without magic or miracles. A place where there are no clairvoyants or shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. A place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk. 

Full of rage and without a purpose, former pianist Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her pay.

All 17 year-old Josh Bennett wants is to build furniture and be left alone and everyone allows it, because it’s easier to pretend he doesn’t exist. When your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space.

Everyone except Nastya, a hot mess of a girl who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. The more he gets to know her, the more of a mystery she becomes. As their relationship intensifies and the unanswered questions begin to pile up, he starts to wonder if he may ever learn the secrets she’s been hiding or if he even wants to.

The Sea of Tranquility is a slow-building, character-driven romance about a lonely boy, an emotionally fragile girl, and the miracle of second chances.


Firstly, I should remind you that this book sort of starts with a mystery, which I'm afraid is something that I really (very/absolutely/freaking/so/extremely) hate. I just don't read much book which consists of mysteries because they annoy the f**k out of me. But I came across this book a few days (or is it months?IDK) and the plot kinda cursed me into liking it. Girl has a past, boys are sort of bad and they meet and (the best part of all) fall in love with each other.

This book simply makes me think a lot, which I don't do much lol I expected it to be just a simple we-meet-and-fall-in-love book but it surprised me. There's more to the story than the 'love' part. This book covers love, salvation, family, friends and life. Just read it already!

Sorry for the terrible review (which really isn't a review at all lol)...

I give this book a perfect 10! (because it was a nicely written book + it does not have too much erotica stuff in it lol)

xoxo

My Hectic Life

Okay, my life has been quite crazy lately. Very crazy indeed. I don't have much time to update my blog because I was so freaking busy with studying for my exam. I really don't wanna screw up my opportunity to enter a decent uni~

But that's not what I wanna share with you guys today~ I wanna share something ridiculous!

I HAVE A CRUSH ON MY TEACHERS LOL

yeah, you heard me right, I have a crush on my teachers!

my first victim is my Maths teacher. He's young, around 25 I guess and he's pretty cute. Lots of girls seem to have a crush on him too. He seems cute to me and sometimes he's quite nice to me lol I like him because he's so passionate with teaching. The crazy part is, sometimes I study harder just because I don't wanna disappoint him with a terrible grade lol


my next  unfortunate victim is a teacher which i barely know. He's chinese. And he's darn cute too. But I bet he is married, I saw a ring on one of his fingers. I like him because he said I'm a bright girl lol

my next crush is the latest one, my econ teacher lol He's handsome, cute, hot and stuff! lol you'd fall in love with him too if you were me. I talked to him a lot recently about econ stuff. And the surprising thing was, he gave me his number when I asked him when he will be free to discuss bout my schoolwork so that I could text him! It may sound 'normal' to you but believe me, it's not for me! I don't even have any female teacher's number on my phone lol I'm not sure whether I'll text him or what lol

I'll update this soon~ xoxo

Update on 29/04/2016: Lol, I can't believe I actually posted this thing four years ago! Anyway, I moved on. I am now happy to be single and enjoying my life to the fullest without clouding my thoughts with the opposite gender :)

Mini Review: Teach Me by Amy Lynn Steele

This is another book which I found after searching for A season of Eden. However, I find it a little bit lacking compared to A Season of Edena. Well give it a try if you love student-teacher love books~



When she was eight, Allison Starr began spending her summers with her aunt in San Diego. Nearly ten years later she is focused on her last year of high school and which colleges to apply to, not the attractive surfer who keeps showing up at the little corner of beach where she reads. She has no interest in a romantic relationship, especially one that starts in the summer and would be long distance. Ali tries to ignore him, but finds the boy on the beach much more distracting than the words in her books. Cooper Perez has never surfed the same beach this many days in a row. He just can’t seem to change spots until he has the courage to talk to the girl who is always reading her books in the shade. When he finally approaches her he is overwhelmed with the instant attraction he feels for this beautiful and intelligent girl, even though she is three years younger. Cooper and Allison spend the rest of the summer together discovering their love of many things, including each other. Summer eventually comes to an end, but their love does not. Allison heads home to start her senior year, but an opportunity brings Cooper closer to Allison than either of them would have expected. Mr. Perez is the new English teacher at Allison’s high school.

Teach Me is a Young Adult book which is slightly swaying towards New Adult. It's a pretty appropriate book for younger teens which makes it an amazing read for me. As for the relationship between Allison and Cooper, I think their relationship was kinda nice, though a bit fast paced. The setting was pretty cool too and though their first meeting was a bit cliche, I still enjoyed it a lot.

4.5 Stars out of 10 Stars for me :)

Recap: Nice Guy Episode 3

Nice Guy Recap Episode 3

Wah so I survive episode ni jugak… tahniah kepada I k… (dah orang tak nak puji, terpaksa I puji diri sendiri, it may sound weird but admit it, you do this too right? Lol)
To me this episode is pretty cute, comel bak kata google translate… moment pertemuan Eunki dan Maru starts episode ni. Dan the evilness of Jaehee makin menjadi-jadi episode ni…okay, tak nak cakap banyak dah, terus ke episode 3 je k…

[tak payah nak merungut-rungut pasal I punya bahasa k, I dah cuba sehabis baik guna bahasa yang paling tepat… tapi kalau nak bagi nasihat membina boleh je komen kat bawah… J ]



Episode 3 ni bermula dengan imbas kembali peristiwa sebelum cliffhanger episode lepas. Eunki cuba untuk mengajak para pekerjanya berbincang sementera mereka mendesaknya meletakkan jawatan sebagai pengarah esekutif syarikat tu. Last last dia kena baling dengan telur… (kesiannn). 




Ketika dia mencuci rambutnya, suara Maru kedengaran (macam yang voiceover tu lah) menyenaraikan perwatakan Eunki. “Eunki merupakan waris utama perusahaan Kumpulan Taesan dan sekarang ini berkhidmat sebagai Pengarah Esekutif kumpulan tu. Dia seorang yang kasar, sombong, cerewet dan dingin. Dia tidak mempunyai sebarang kawan dan sebarang hobi. Shopping, wayang, muzium, dan bermain golf…itulah gaya hidup sosialnya. Satu-satunya hobi Eunki ialah motorbiking (baha melayu apa ek?)

Eunki kemudiannya mengeluarkan patung barbienya dan melemparkan sebuah senyuman dengan lembut kearah patung itu dan mengajaknya untuk sama-sama menunggang motorbikenya. (she’s that lonely?!)



Sementara Maru menunggang motorbikenya, penghujung pertemuan antara Jaehee dan Maru di balai polis sebelumnya dipaparkan. Maru yang pada mulanya membisu membuka mulutnya untuk bertanya kepada Jaehee bagaimanakah keadaannya di dunia (gaya hidup glamor dan mewah) di mana Jaehee sedang hidup. Dia membahasakan Jaehee sebagai ‘Puan’ dan bertanya bagaimanakah gaya hidup Jaehee sehinggakan dia sanggup memerangkap lelaki yang tak bersalah dan memusnahkannya, membuatkannya hilang kerasionallannya dan menghancurkan keinginannya untuk hidup.




Jaehee tidak menjawab soalan Maru tetapi sebaliknya menyoal Maru kembali. Apakah seorang sepertimu akan mampu untuk membayangkannya? (honestly this woman really need to get down back to Earth!)




Kita seterusnya kembali ke scene di mana Eunki hampir jatuh ke jurang. Maru Berjaya menarik Eunki naik semula namun Eunki berusaha untuk kebawah semula untuk mendapatkan motosikalnya. Maru menganggap Eunki gila kerana cuba untuk mendapatkan kembali motosikal itu dengan susah payahnya sedangkan motosikal itu boleh diukar ganti. Maru cuba untuk menariknya kembaali secara paksa namun dia menangis mengatakan bahawa patungya ada di bawah sana. Dia menangis dan menjerit meyebut perkataan ‘emak’ (in Korea lah.. lol).




Maru akhirnya memahami tindakan Eunki dan menawarkan diri untuk mengambilnya untuknya. Dia menuruni jurang itu menggunakan tali, namun apabila dia mencapai patung itu dan menunjukkannya kepada Eunki, tali itu tiba-tiba putus menyebabkannya jatuh.




Di hospital, Eunki menunggu dengan agak cemas di ruangan menunggu. Seorang doctor kemudiannya keluar mengatakan bahawa Maru telah mengalami kecederaan sedikit pada kakinya dan tulang rusuknya patah. Namun dia akan baik-baik sahaja. Apabila diatnya tentang hubugan mereka, Eunki menyatakan bahawa dia tidak mengenali Maru. (ingat tak time kat plane tu Maru selamatkan dia? Time tu dia tak sedarkan diri so inilah kali pertama dia jumpa face-to-face dengan si Maru ni)


Maru sedang tidur berehat di dalam biliknya. Sewaktu bangun, dia mendapati bahawa Eunki sedang merenunginya dan perkataan pertama yang keluar sari mulutnya ialah mengenai Maru memunyai motif tersendiri dalam menyelamatkannya. Dia merasakan mungkin Maru menolongnya untuk mendapatkan sebarang wang darippadanya. Maru yang sepertinya sudah sanga mengetahui tentang sikap Eunki ini bertanya kepadanya, adakah ibu bapanya telah mengajarnya untuk kekal keras kepala dan bersifat dingin apabila dia berasa berterima kasih kerana sepatutnya Eunki berterima kasih kepadanya atas apa yang telah dilakukannya.




Maru mengajarnya bahawa jika dia berasa berterima kasih, dia patut mengucapkan ‘terima kasih’ dan apabila dia telah melakukan kesilapan, dia patut meminta maaf. Dia mengatakan bahawa ibu bapanya bukanlah orang yang terpelajar namun mereka mengajarnya tentang adab dengan baik. Eunki tampak erkejut sengan teguran itu. Maru seterusnya mengatakan bahawa dia melakukan apa yang telah dilakukannya atas kehendaknya sendiri, maka bermula dari sekarang, mereka patut berpura-pura bahawa mereka saling tiak mengenali. Dia menghalau Eunki keluar kerana dia ingin berehat. Dia berjalan keluar sedikit terhincut dan mengingat kembali saat Maru menyelamatkan patungnya. Dia ragu-ragu akan kebenaran kata-kata Maru. (tak logic kan kalau someone selamatkan kita camtu je?)




Jaehee mengimbas kembali pertengkaran di antara Eunki dan Pengerusi Seo. Rupa-rupanya dia telah mencri dengar perbuaan mereka sebelumnya. Dia tersenyum mendengar bahawa Pengerusi Seo bercadang untuk menggantikan kedudukan Eunki dengannya dan anaknya, Eunsuk. Dia tersenyum dan memeluk Eunsuk, memberitahunya bahawa sekarang ini mereka merupakan pewaris harta Pengerusi Seo. (I. Hate. This. Evil. Woman. Period.) dia memberitahu Eunsuk bahawa dia perlu berusaha untuk menguasai semuanya dan tidak membiarkan sesiapapun merampas apa yang menjadi miliknya.




Seorang lagi peguam keluarga Seo, Peguam Ahn memerhatikan Jaehee dari jauh. Keihatnnya seperti pandangan itu sangat bermakna. Dia tahu bahawa Joonha sedang menyelidik tentang masa lampau Jaehee dan Maru daripada Sekreteri Jo, sekreteri keluarga itu. Dia memastikan bahawa Sekretari Jo berada di pihak Jaehee. Sektretari Jo enggan bekerjasama dengan Joonha dan berpura-pura tidak mengetahui hubungan Maru dan Jaehee. Namun Joonha jelas kelihatan ragu-ragu dengan kenyataan beliau.




Dalam satu makan malam di rumahnya, Eunki pula kelihatannya gagal melenyapkan Maru daripada kepalanya. Dia masih memikirkan siapakah sebenarnya lelaki yang bernama Maru itu. Makan malam itu seperti biasanya turut disertai kedua-dua peguam keluarga itu. Peguam Ahn kemudiannya mendapat panggilan daripda seorang doctor yang mengatakan bahawa Eunki telah disahkan sebagai penderma organ kepada Pengerusi Seo yang kurang sihat. 

Pengerusi Seo pula bertindak menghina niatnya untuk membantu dengan mengatakan bahawa dia tidak patut sibuk hendak membantunya memandangkan dia sendiri pun mempunyai banyak masalah (dengan protes daripada pekerja syarikatnya yang ingin mengusirnya keluar daripada syarikat itu)



Jaehee yang sedar bahawa tindakan Eunki yang cuba untuk menderma organnya kepada Pengerusi Seo adalah untuk tujuan berbaik-baik dengan Pengerusi Seo. Dia pun dengan pura-puranya menyokong kata-kata Pengerusi Seo, mengatakan bahawa Eunki patut mendengar kata-kata Pengerusi Seo. Nada suaranya lembut, seperti seorang ibu lagaknya. (however, she is too young to be Eunki’s mom!)




Bagi kepentingan dirinya sendiri, Jaehee cuba untuk memanipulasi keadaan itu. Dia mengatakan bahawa Eunki ialah satu-satunya anak Pengerusi Seo yang akan mewarisi syarikatnya, maka dia sepatutnya mengambil berat akan kesihatannya. Kata-kta kedengaran seperti benar kepada Pengerusi Seo namun semua yang ada tahu bahawa dia hanya ingin kelihatan baik di hadapan Pengerusi Seo.




Untuk menambahkan lagi perasa ke atas lakonannya, Jaehee menyatakan bahawa dia ingin melakukan ujian penderma organ juga untuk menjadi penderma organ kepada Pengerusi Seo memandangkan keadaan kesihatan Eunki kurang baik. Lagipun, dia merasakan bahwa berbanding Eunki, dirinya tidaklah terlalu berharga. (OMG, I am throwing a jug of water in your face!).dia kemudiannya menaawarkan diri untuk memotong steak buat Pengerusi Seo. Eunki jelas menyampah dengan sikap kepura-puraannya.


Pengerusi Seo kelihatan terpedaya dengan taktik Jaehee dan cuba untuk memasukkan namanya sebagai pemilik sebuah pusat membeli belah yang akan dilancarkan syarikat mereka. Jaehee dengan lembutnya berpura-pura menolak mengatakan bahwa dia hanya melakukan apa yang sepatutnya sebagai seorang isteri. Dia turut menyatakan bahawa Pengerusi Seo tidak perlu membayar nilai kasih sayangnya. (I feel like I want to throw up right now!)
(OHH…… I hate this fox! Someone please give her a high five in the face, with a freaking flower pot!)




Eunki kemudiannya mendapat tahu bahawa ayahnya akan berkahwin secara rasmi dengan Jaehee dan sebuah majlis pernikahan yang meriah akan diadakan bagi memperkenalkan Jaehee. Dia kemudiannya menemui semula patung barbienya yang telah jatuh bersama dengan Maru awalnya.Dia merenung patung barbienya dan teringat akan saat di mana ibunya memberikannya patung itu sebelum melangkah keluar dari rumah itu.



 Dulu Pengerusi Seo pernah merampas semua anak patungnya tapi ibunya telah Berjaya menyelamatkan satu patung untuknya. Ketika ingin pergi, ibunya telah mengajaknya untuk ikut sama namun dia enggan. Dia ingin bertahan di rumah itu untuk menang dan menghancurkan sesiapa sahaja di bawahnya. Dia tidak ingin menjadi seperti ibunya yang melarikan diri dan mengaku kalah begitu sahaja. Dia ingin menang. (to fight her cruel dad I guess).




Setiausahanya memaklumkan Eunki bahawa Maru teah meninggalkan patung itu di situ buatnya dan Maru juga enggan menerima hadiah pemberiannya (sebagai tanda berterima kasih menyelamatkannya). Eunki kemudiannya bercadang untuk ke hospital untuk menemui Maru namun Maru telah pun keluar dari hospital.




Maru yang telah berada di kawasan perumahannya mendapat satu pesanan ringkas daripada Choco yang mengatakan bahawa dia akan pergi tinggal bersama dengan ibu kandungnya. (Choco dan Maru berkongsi ayah, namun mempunyai berlainan ibu). Maru cuba menghubungi Choco namun gagal.




Jaehee mengekori Maru ke rumahnya namun peguam Ahn menghalangnya untuk menemui Maru. Di dalam rumahnya, Maru menemui Jaegil yang sedang menikmati spa bersama teman wanitanya. Teman wanitanya lalu terpikat dengan Maru namun Jaegil bertindak mengatakan bahawa Maru menarik hanyalah kerana pembedahan plastic. 



Ketika melangkah keluar dari rumah itu, Maru tidak menemui Jaehee namun sebaliknya dia menemui Eunki. Eunki merungut bahawa dia tidak pernah menghampiri kawasan perumahan yang teruk seperti itu. Namun akhirnya sedar bahawa kata-katanya seakan-akan menghina Maru. Dia memaklumkan Maru bahawa dia tidak bermaksud untuk menghina Maru. (I love the fact that Eunki is so freaking honest with her feelings while Jaehee is the kind of woman who is so freaking secretive and terribly manipulative. I hope the former will win this fight in the end.)



Maru kemudiannya mengejutkannya dengan bertanya apakah Eunki berminat dengannya (aka menyukainya). Eunki menafikannya dan mengatakan bahawa dia kesitu kerana dia tidak ingin berasa terhutang budi dengan Eunki. Maru mendekatinya dan berkata bahawa Eunki tidak perlu risau dengan hutang budinya kerana Maru tidak berniat untuk memintanya membalas budinya. Maru kemudiannya melangkah masuk ke dalam keretanya.





Maru kemudiannya mendapat sebuah panggilan daripada Choco yang mengadu betapa kejamnya ibunya kepadanya.  Dia mempunyai kesssan lebam di mukanya dihujung talian. Dia sedang dikejar seorang lelaki. (suami kepada ibunya). 



Eunki melompat masuk ke dalam kereta itu sebelum sempat Maru memandu pergi. (she’s quick lol). Eunki memarahi Maru kerana bersikap kasar dengannya. Dia menawarkan untuk menyertai Maru dalam perjalanannya untuk mendapatkan Choco kerana dia ingin memarahi Maru. 


Maru memandu keretanya dengan laju namun Eunki tidak sedikitpun berasa takut.


Mereka berterusan berengkar lidah di dalam kereta yang dipandu Maru. Maru memberi amaran kepada Eunki bahwa mereka hanya akan apat balik semula ke Seoul esok dan dia tidak akan singgah di mana-mana untuk berehat. Eunki kekal dengan ingin mengikuti Maru. Dia ingin Maru menerima hadiah pemberiannya yang telah ditolak Maru sebelumnya. Maru menolak sekali lagi pemberian itu.





Eunki geram dan bertanya apakah Maru menginginkan lebih banyak daripada itu. Maru menjawabnya dengan bertanya apakah dia akan memberikan lebih lagi kepadanya sekiranya dia meminta sesuatu yang 100 kali lebih berharga dari hadiah itu. Eunki menjawabnya dengan berkata bahawa Maru patut menjalnkan pemeriksaan ke atas kepalanya. (he is insane to ask that). Maru kemudiannya berterusan mengganggu ketenangan Eunki dengan mengatakan bahaw sejak kemalangan itu, dia telah berubah. Dia kini terpesona melihat Eunki. Dia mengatakan bahwa sebelum kemalangan itu, Eunki bukanlah jenis perempuan yang disukainya. Dia menjelaskan bahwa kini dia tertarik dengan perempuan yang panas baran, cerewet…. Seperti Eunki. (lol that is a cute twist). Eunki kelihaan terkejut dengan  kenyataan Maru.




Seluruh perjalanan selepas itu diisi dengan kesenyapan. Eunki memerhatikan Maru manakala Maru kekal dengan ekspresi kosongnya. Setelah tiba di kawasan desa yang dituju, Maru mengarahkan Eunki untuk pulang dengan menaiki bas balik ke Seoul.


Eunki enggan berbuat demikian dan mengekori Maru menemui Choco. Maru berhenti di sebuah gerai minuman di mana seorang wanita sedang disoal oleh suaminya yang sedang mencari Choco. Dia kelihatan seperti telah didera oleh suaminya juga.lelaki itu geram kerana Choco telah melaporkannya kepada pihak polis atas dakwaan melakukan penderaan. 



Lelaki itu ingin memukul isterinya namun Maru mula masuk campur. Maru Berjaya mengalahkan lelaki itu dalam pergelutan mereka.



si isteri bagaimanapun mempertahankan suaminya dan mula memukul Maru.



Eunki kelihatan seperti cuba untuk membantu Maru namun Choco tiba, menghalang niatnya. Choco menahan ibunya daripada memukul Maru. (Honestly, I think her mom is an idiot who loves her husband way too stupidly!). Eunki kemudiannya cuba menceriakan Maru dengan gaya acuh tak acuhnya dengan mengatakan bahawa Maru kelihatan hebat ketika melawan lelaki itu. (lol she refers him as ‘cool’, why so cute?)


Ibu Choco (dengan bodohnya!) mengatakan bahawa Choco sepatutnya menerima sahaja pukulan ayah tirinya kerana dia merasakan bahawa pukulan yang diterima tidaklah teruk sangat. (honestly, I think this woman has been beaten on her head way too often that she has lost her ability to think straight!). menambahkan luka di hati Choco, ibunya mengatakan bahawa dia lebih rela memiih suaminya (si kaki pukul tu) berbanding dengan  Choco (anak perempuannya). Dia mengheet Choco kearah Maru an mengaakan bahwa Choco patut tinggal bersama Maru bagi meringankan bebannya.

*side note. Maru dan Choco bukan adik beradik kandung, diorang Cuma berkongsi ayah je. (ntah bape kali nak ulang bende nih)



Maru geram dengan kata-kata ibu Choco namun dia cuba mengawal perasaannya. Selepas Choco beredaar untuk mendapatkan begnya, si ibu berpesan kepada Maru agar menghubunginya sekiranya Choco berkahwin kelak. Maru dengan nada menahan marah memberitahunya bahwa dia tidak akan pernah menghubunginya. Si ibu kelihatan tenang sahaja menelan kata-kata Maru namun setelah memusingkan badannya, kelihatan dia sangat sedih dengan kata-kata itu. Eunki sekadar memerhatikan masalah keluarga itu, masih enggan ikut campur. (beside that it’s really none of her business to begin with lol)


*okay, sampai sini korang teka dululah apa maksud pics ni k*
*mata ngantuk dah so taknak recap dulu, nantilah time free I continue k?*
