사랑과 비

Love has two faces and they are “happiness” and “sadness”. Only love can perform the miracle of merging what are seemingly opposite and make them one. - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

As much as love can be dazzlingly beautiful, it can be heartbreakingly sad. Sometimes, tears may flow because you are very happy. Sometimes, in the midst of sadness, you may fall into a moment of happiness.

Rain and love are quite alike. It rains regardless if you are happy or sad. On a rainy day, you may feel happy due to the warmth of our companionship. On a rainy day, you may weep due to the sense of loneliness of past memories. If it is a rainy day, memories filled with happiness and sadness rains into our hearts.

(Translation of excerpt from KBS's "Love Rain" official site)

With so many covered walkways erected in Singapore, it is kinda difficult to have opportunity to share umbrella with someone else on a rainy day. Even without covered walkways, I am not too sure if people will share umbrella. As city becomes more crowded, people tend to keep a further distance from one another.


  1. I am crushed by disappointment because of that someone.Just finding it funny because i was so happy before and now for this very same person who can kills me at the same time.Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is right..

    Sorry,i don't mean to rant on ur blog.

  2. Another good post. Thank you :)

  3. Hi, all I did was translate, not much of an effort. Anyway, thanks for the compliment :)

  4. Equinox 안녕! Long time no see/speak/hear.
    Thanks for posting this, I totally agree with you. How many people still carry an umbrella in their bags?

    In the past , I remember looking forward to the rain falling, so that I can share my umbrella with him. It's such a nice feeling, which I'm afraid our kids will probably not experience in the future.

    1. You're so romantic :)

      Yes, it has been a long time. I read that you've completed A3 in SKIS. What an achievement. So sad, there is no class for me to attend these days ㅠㅠ
