POLO 🙂

Nu, polo pe cai nu este un joc de aristocrati, asa cum cred multi.Este un sport aspru la care se transpira cat la un meci de baschet, de la primul pana la ultimul fluier al arbitrului, un joc in care se transpira din belsug atat calaretul cat si calul.

Calaretul nu doar ca trebuie sa formeze un tot cu calul sau, dar el trebuie sa fie foarte rapid in gandire.Se joaca uneori cu o viteza de peste 50 de km la ora. Pare ciudat ca un sport care in anii 20′, 30′ figura pe lista sporturilor olimpice apare astazi la rubrica de sporturi neobisnuite.Cea mai cunoscuta campioana olimpica la polo pe cai a fost Argentina, si nici nu e de mirare majoritatea cailor provin din Argentina.Caii trebuie sa fie inteligenti si curajosi, capabili sa franeze si sa se opreasca intr.un spatiu incredibil de mic, sa se intoarca ,,cu iuteala fulgerului,, cum spun admiratorii acestui sport, sa schimbe ritmul de alergare in asa fel incat calaretul sa se afle in permanenta in cea mai buna pozitie pentru a lovi cu paleta mingea de bambus, sa urmareasca mingea din proprie initiativa etc.

Nu este de mirare ca aceste animale superbe isi fac aparitia pe teren la varste inaintate de 5-6 ani, dupa ce invata sa isi pastreze echilibrul.Este interzis jucatorilor sa indemne caiicu biciusca sau de a-i ameninta cu paleta.

Jucatorul este obligat sa apere calul in orice situatie, de altfel regulile jocului sunt concepute pentru a proteja in primul rand caii.

Dar cum se joaca polo pe cai? Fiecare echipa incearca sa duca mingea in spatele liniei sau marecheaza sfarsitul terenului, pe care este fixata si poarta.Intr-o astfel de situatie, echipa care a reusit performanta beneficiaza de o lovitura de pedeapsa. Aceasta se executa de la o distanta de 54 d metri… jucatorul care executa lovitura si care urmareste mingea are dreptul asa-numitei prime directii. Daca un calaret advers i se interpune periculos in cale, el comite o infractiune. Faulturile comise asupra cailor se pedepseste cu lovituri. Castigatoare a intalnirii va fi echipa care a reusit sa inscrie cele mai multe goluri.

How to be happy

Ok ,ok I know it’s hard especially when someone tells that you’re not as pretty as ”x” or when you see a person how seems to be PERFECT,I know that because I went through this too…and sometimes this still happens to me, but I try not to care anymore. I am sure that all of us are perfect enough and anyway the outer beauty is fleeting ,but the inner beauty is forever.

So please STOP comparing yourself to others…think about it,if God wanted to be all the same then He would have done so,but He didn;t wanted this so I’m wondering why we want to be a copy of someone else when we can be originals.

 

Love rain

Hi guys! What’s up? I’m totally in love with this kdrama LOVE RAIN.

The story:

Love Rain depicts a pure love of the 1970s and a love from the present day. In the 1970s, Seo In Ha and Kim Yoon Hee, an art student and a shy beauty, met and fell in love with each other during college; but unfortunately their love was fated to never be. Now in the present 21st century Korea, Seo In Ha’s son, Seo Joon (a liberal photographer) meets the daughter of Kim Yoon Hee, Jung Ha Na, a cheerful and energetic girl whose personality is different from her mother’s. At first, they both found each other a nuisance and troublesome. Gradually, their feelings develop for one another. In Ha was never quite gotten over his love for Yoon Hee, despite marrying one of her best friends, Hye Jung.He is over the moon when he sees Yoon Hee on the streets and the two reconcile and make up for time lost. Little do they know that their children are dating each other, and the greater shock comes when they announce their marriage to their children. Who will end up being together: In Ha and Yoon Hee or Seo Joon and Ha Na.

Okay, Love Rain. Man, I thought this was very well directed. I really liked the whole plot of the older generations fate and then the younger generation falling for each other as well.I just fall in love…because it’s about ”LOVE” (I am a romantic person) and ”RAIN” (I love the rain).

The main actor Jang Keun-Suk it’s absolutely amazing and the role he plays here it’s definitely for him…and yes he is so good looking.Of course the main actress Yoona (SNSD) is no less then him.It’s true that she hasn’t the same experience as  Jang Keun-Suk ,but she plays very good.I just love the couple of this kdrama because they have such a good chemistry.Sometimes they fight,sometimes laugh…and sometimes they are ironic (that’s what I like the most).

Besides that  this kdrama caught my attention because of the lines.My favourite lines are :

”One, two, three…
In just three seconds,I fell in love. ”—  Seo In Ha, Love Rain

 

”I love rain… I love you.”– Seo In Ha’s song for Yoon Hee

me: When I heard this lines for the first time my heart start to beat very fast,maybe because I was so excited.

“Someone’s beginning is another person’s ending.”
—     Love Rain

„You said you could make someone fall in love in three seconds, right? But you will never get me because from now on, I won’t even look at you for one second.”–Ha Na (Love Rain)

“No matter how hard things get, or whatever else happens, let’s not run from it.”
—     Seo Joon (Love Rain)

“It’s not that you happened to be in my scenery. You were my scenery that day. Ever since I met you, my scenery was always you.”
—     Seo In Ha – Love Rain

“The reason people have two arms is for them to hug the people that they love.”
—     Yoon Hee, Love Rain.

“Something has to CHANGE for new things to come.”
—     Dong Wook

„In my whole life, I’ve never been important to the people I cared about the most. You were my only hope.”
—  Love Rain

…and the most important one (yes this is from ”Love Story”-you will understand why if you watch this drama).


Now it’s time to listen the OST of this kdrama (some of them) :

Jang Geun Suk (장근석) – Love Rain

 

Tiffany – Because It’s you

 

Yozoh – Again and Again

 

V.A – Shiny Love

Marina and The Diamonds–Lies

You’re never gonna love me, so what’s the use?
What’s the point in playing a game you’re gonna lose?
What’s the point in saying you love me like a friend?
What’s the point in saying it’s never gonna end?

You’re to proud to say that you’ve made a mistake
You’re a coward to the end
I don’t wanna admit, but we’re not gonna fit
No, I’m not the type that you like
Why don’t we just pretend?

Lies, don’t wanna know, don’t wanna know oh
I can’t let you go, can’t let you go oh
I just want it to be perfect
To believe it’s all been worth the fight
Lies, don’t wanna know, don’t wanna know oh

You only ever touch me in the dark
Only if we’re drinking can you see my spark
And only in the evening that you give yourself to me
Cause the night is your woman, and she’ll set you free

You’re to proud to say that you’ve made a mistake
You’re a coward to the end
I don’t wanna admit, but we’re not gonna fit
No, I’m not the type that you like
Why don’t we just pretend?

Lies, don’t wanna know, don’t wanna know oh
I can’t let you go, can’t let you go oh
I just want it to be perfect
To believe it’s all been worth the fight
Lies, don’t wanna know, don’t wanna know oh

Lies, don’t wanna know, don’t wanna know oh
I can’t let you go, can’t let you go oh
I just want it to be perfect
To believe it’s all been worth the fight
Lies, don’t wanna know, don’t wanna know oh

      Me: I just love her voice and this song –xoxo
