KMK MP3 Giveaway!

Well, I have been inspired! Overat Seoul Eats there has been a battle waging to snatch the top prize of Dan’s Tartine Meat Pie contest. The rules were simple: The user with the most posts would win. Later, due to the response, additional categories for creativity and ingenuity were added.

The event has lit my competitive fires and so I’m going to kick off another contest of my own. I feel my Konglish Contest was a success and hope this new one does even better. So, dear readers, starting today the person with the most comments will win the MP3 Player above. This player was the prize I won from VANK. Since I have an IPOD I decided to share the love and give this one away.

All you have to do is comment as much as possible on this post until December 24th Midnight wherein the contest will be closed and a winner selected.

I will mail the MP3 to whereever the winner is so no worries about shippping.

    Wow that's awful when stuff like that happens but even more so on holiday occasions. I hope everyone was alright. Christmas movies and lounging sounds good to me!

    Happy Holidays! The hours are winding down fast now!


  3. December 25, 2009 @ 12:16 am Lola O.

    Today was kind of a sad day, I saw two car crashes today, one on my way to my Uncle's house, and then another one on the same road on my way back home. All the cars were totaled. I just hope the passengers survived.

    It's really sad when things like that happen around the holidays. Make sure you tell your loved ones just how much you love them!!


  4. December 25, 2009 @ 12:14 am Lola O.

    As far as my Christmas plans, I really just plan on lounging around the house watching Christmas movies, and eating all my favorite foods. I am looking forward to a stress-free and super relaxing Christmas Day.


  5. December 25, 2009 @ 12:10 am Lola O.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. I for one am hoping for one of those Christmas miracles for my family.

    I just got back from babysitting, man the youngest one is a little tyrant.


  6. December 24, 2009 @ 8:30 pm Ian Y

    Merry Christmas Every body!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Specially Lola~ 🙂

    What is your plans for christmas??

    I will meet some of the friends for christmas dinner


  7. December 24, 2009 @ 6:59 pm Phoenixstorm

    Yup there's about 14 hours left the time is running out fast though!


  8. December 24, 2009 @ 6:01 am Lola O.

    Lol…I woke up at 3 Am..couldn't fall back asleep and decided to clean then I remembered it's not midnight in Seoul yet so I can still comment.


  9. December 23, 2009 @ 2:29 pm Lola O.

    Already goodnight, looking forward to seeing who wins when I wake up:)


  10. December 23, 2009 @ 2:28 pm Lola O.

    It seems only Ian Y is commenting besides me.


  11. December 23, 2009 @ 2:28 pm Lola O.

    I hope I win, it would be a nice surprise to a crazy week.


  12. December 23, 2009 @ 2:27 pm Lola O.

    It’s already nighttime here so I guess these will be my last comments.


  13. December 23, 2009 @ 1:14 pm Lola O.

    I heard that winter is kind of weird in Seoul, like 3 days it is super cold, and then 3 days it isn’t…and then it goes back to being cold.

    I’m hoping I have prepared enough warm clothes to keep me from turning into a human icicle.

    Here in Phoenix we don’t really get what it means to be winter time.


  14. December 23, 2009 @ 1:12 pm Lola O.

    It is so cold outside, and I was starving. I didn’t expect it to take so long, and I am just hoping Volvo takes care of the problem with little to no hassle.

    Thank goodness, we have a spare car (ie my car) till this situation is handled. I feel bad for my mom because she has been having a lot of issues this year with her 2004 Volvo. I hope 2010 is a better year for her and he car.


  15. December 23, 2009 @ 1:10 pm Lola O.

    My mom called me saying she couldn’t start her car, and she needed to be at school. So being the nice daughter that I am I went to switch cars, and wait for the tow truck. Well the dumb people at Triple A first sent a battery person, then a tow truck that couldn’t put the car on it (the key wouldn’t turn in the ignition, so he could put it in neutral)….they should have known that since we told them when we called, so they called another tow truck and 3 hours into this whole mess I FINALLY GET HOME.

    Needless to say I am not in the best mood, but I’m glad it was me rather than my poor mom waiting for the damn tow truck.


  16. December 23, 2009 @ 1:08 pm Lola O.

    So since I need somewhere to went my frustrating night why not do it here.


  17. December 23, 2009 @ 1:07 pm Lola O.

    Nope, Daybreakers is the total opposite of Twilight. In it vampires are the majority and use humans pretty much as dinner. It looks really good. I think it is more of a vampire thriller kind of movie.

    I LOVE movies, it’s like one of the best ways for me to relax.


  18. December 23, 2009 @ 11:43 am Lola O.

    Anyone else excited for the Sherlock Holmes movie? By the way, the Iron Man 2 trailer is out and damn it looks awesome. I loved the first movie, and I hope the second one is even better.


  19. December 23, 2009 @ 11:41 am Lola O.

    It's sad that the Imaginarium movies is Ledger's last film. I want to see it in honor of him.


  20. December 23, 2009 @ 11:38 am Lola O.

    So what's everyone's favorite part of Christmas…or Hanukkah…or Kwanzaa if you celebrate those instead.

    I like all the Christmas lights people do on their houses. Some of them are just so breathtaking, and I like that they do it for other people to see. It makes me smile looking at all those lights and decorations twinkling against the night sky.


  21. December 23, 2009 @ 11:35 am Lola O.

    My blood is so thin, I get cold with just air conditioning. I'm a little nervous about the weather in Seoul. Everyone says it is unbelievably cold, and I just have this image of me freezing to death…lol


  22. December 23, 2009 @ 11:34 am Lola O.

    Here in AZ it is cold but as usual Xmas is kind of weird since we don't get snow. We like to call it a Dry Christmas since it definitely isn't a White Christmas.

    I like snow, but IDK if I would want to live in a place where it snows each year.


  23. December 23, 2009 @ 11:32 am Lola O.

    Thanks for the side add of my blog:…your on the list of SK faves on mine.

    So is the registering on the blog just for forum stuff?


  24. December 23, 2009 @ 11:26 am Lola O.

    Hey KMK, since you love vampire movies you must be pretty excited for Daybreakers with Ethan Hawke. The trailer gives me goosebumps because of the awesome music in it.


  25. December 23, 2009 @ 11:25 am Lola O.

    I haven't bought anyone presents either. I tell people not to buy me presents, because I feel like you shouldn't need to get someone a present on Christmas. Just being there is enough in my book. The best present would be spending time together.


  26. December 23, 2009 @ 11:24 am Lola O.

    Is it weird that I am not thrilled about Xmas? A lot of my family is working that day…I know…wtf…so I am kind of on my own. Which isn't horrible since that means Christmas movies, pizza, and pajamas all day long.


  27. December 23, 2009 @ 11:22 am Lola O.

    I wish I knew how to do web designs, I would redo my blog. But I am pretty happy with the look right now.


  28. December 23, 2009 @ 11:21 am Lola O.

    Yup, Clash of the Titans looks like a fun ride. All the monsters look really amazing. I just hope I don't end up disappointed.


  29. December 23, 2009 @ 11:19 am Lola O.

    Hmm…my comments have disappeared…or are they just waiting for approval?


  30. December 23, 2009 @ 10:50 am Phoenixstorm

    Hey ya, all the comments are still there, I’m just fiddling with settings. I changed it to restrict comments only to those who login but that seemed dumb so I changed it back.

    I’ll check out the IM2 trailer straight away. Sherlock Holmes I’m going to see on Christmas eve! We sure do love movies! I didn’t know about daybreak that sounds like a twilight movie, is it?

    I like the look of your site is vibrant. When you get to seoul be prepared but yesterday it was awesome not cold in the least. weird.


  31. December 23, 2009 @ 9:18 am Ian Y

    It was such a good weather today~~

    I hope chrismas's weather is really cool

    'cause I am going to ski tirp friday to sunday 🙂


  32. December 23, 2009 @ 2:35 am Phoenixstorm

    A clash of the titans remake! Who knew! That, hopefully, will be awesome. The original has a fond place in my heart.

    Thanks, Lola, I've been trying to find a look I love. I am chatting with web designers but its so expensive! I've got to save my coins to come up with a catchy logo and design I'm happy with.


  33. December 22, 2009 @ 10:57 pm Ian Y


    Did everybody buy gifts for the people you love?????


  34. December 22, 2009 @ 10:52 pm Ian Y

    Yes I like the guy who acting Jake sully~ hahahahaha

    by the way I really wanna see The imaginarium of doctor parnassus

    The preview film was amazing!!

    ah…….. Wait… where is korean film…. oh I should watch

    korean film!! hehehehe


  35. December 22, 2009 @ 10:19 pm Lola O.

    I think the new look is very user-friendly and easy on the eyes, which is a plus. I think since I have been reading your blog you've changed the look at least 4 times…keeps things interesting.


  36. December 22, 2009 @ 10:18 pm Lola O.

    Plus the guy who plays Jake Sully was very good looking. He's also in Clash of The Titans which looks like it will be a good action movie to watch.


  37. December 22, 2009 @ 10:17 pm Lola O.

    Avatar was freaking AMAZING. I wanted to cry because it was so visually beautiful. Even the forest animals were pretty. That one general guy with the scars drove me crazy! I kept on thinking DIE, DIE, DIE, and I am glad he did.

    The story wasn't really original, but the way it was done was definitely original. I just couldn't imagine all the work and people it took to create such a beautiful movie.


  38. December 22, 2009 @ 7:08 am Kalli Jean

    Ummmmm… I'm just posting for mp3 player. lol

    Taco Rico rocks my world! And my avatar is HOT! Thanks, Brian!


  39. December 21, 2009 @ 11:34 pm Phoenixstorm

    Avatar was so awesome! The story is nothing new but its the way cameron told it! It looks totally gorgeous and the people cgi interaction is seamless.

    it is bittersweet when friends have to say goodbye even during a happy occasion.

    Thanks for the compliment. I'm really trying to give the site a sleek look with added functionality. Now I just have to get the forums to work!


  40. December 21, 2009 @ 2:10 pm Lola O.

    Only four more days of this competition. I hope I win:)


  41. December 21, 2009 @ 2:07 pm Lola O.

    I’m digging the new layout. Feels like a newspaper or magazine site.


  42. December 21, 2009 @ 2:06 pm Lola O.

    My best friend got married yesterday and it was really bittersweet for me. Today we all said our goodbyes, and none of the guys understood why we we’re all crying.

    I guess it is just one of those women things.


  43. December 21, 2009 @ 2:05 pm Lola O.

    I’m watching Avatar tomorrow in 3D… my little brother is treating me to it, which is kind of sweet of him:)

    It was sold out today so we have to wait till tomorrow.


  44. December 21, 2009 @ 9:15 am Levi Hughs

    Hey, that’s some saucy information you got there. I love Glee! I watch it online at I’ll be sure to visit this blog more often!


  45. December 20, 2009 @ 11:10 pm Ian Y

    11:07, sunday, vacation

    I love this time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You tube, alcohol, music – such as “the fray”, “Demien rice” –


  46. December 20, 2009 @ 11:04 pm Ian Y

    Today I saw Avatar!! It was amazing film!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Even though the runing time is really long, I wan’t bored!!

    You guys should go to cinema for watching it 🙂


  47. December 20, 2009 @ 3:06 pm Phoenixstorm

    Yes, like how on Lost you just had no idea that being stranded on the island on the first episode was going to lead to some time traveling end of the world claptrap.


  48. December 20, 2009 @ 3:00 pm Lola O.

    IDK, for me there is something about Korean dramas that is missing from Western dramas. Plus, I like how everything wraps up in 16+ episodes. Instead of waiting 5 seasons for things to start happening.


  49. December 20, 2009 @ 2:59 pm Lola O.

    Now that I have all this free time, Misfits & Being Human are on my list of shows to watch. I wish there were more fantasy shows like Legend of the Seeker.

    I guess shows that are kind of in the Lord of the Rings genre:)


  50. December 20, 2009 @ 2:58 pm Lola O.

    I think Kara adds spice to the cast, and some competition for Kahlan.


  51. December 20, 2009 @ 2:38 pm Phoenixstorm

    I love fantasy and horror books. The Dresden Series, Laura K Hamilton (before she went all nympho), The weather warden series, Kim Harrison, Steven Barnes and tons more!

    If there is a vampire, Elf, or wizard I’m there and if its all three then its jackpot!


  52. December 20, 2009 @ 12:40 am Lola O.

    Has anyone heard of Being Human? It's another British show I am thinking of checking out.


  53. December 20, 2009 @ 12:39 am Lola O.

    When I get some free time, I will watch Merlin. I haven't heard of Couple Rings, but Skin is like a guilty pleasure for me.


  54. December 19, 2009 @ 6:37 pm Ian Y

    well, we talk about TV show…….
    How about books??

    what kind of books do you like??
    Or who is your favorite author??

    In my case……………..
    I like to read japanese book when I have free time~
    Japanese books are kinda “nihilism” and I like it


  55. December 19, 2009 @ 6:32 pm Ian Y

    Actually Korean TV show is worse than western’s
    but I can say some of Korean films are really good such as “Old boy (올드보이)”, “Monster (괴물)”

    If you guys have DVD player, go for it!!!

    I met Brazilian friend, he knew about the film “Old boy”.
    even brazilian who has never been Asia, know about this film~

    I think you guys can enjoy it!!!


  56. December 19, 2009 @ 5:25 pm Phoenixstorm

    This is definitely a transition. I made the move to wordpress but I lost all my categories. I have to go through each post and retag everything. Then I’ll install the new theme!

    I love being human i saw the pilot and they changed a couple of actors but it was a good move. The series is great especially the guy who plays the werewolf.

    Legend of The seeker is fantastic too. I like how they added Kara to the main cast. She reminds me of Xena and I love my Xena.


  57. December 19, 2009 @ 3:39 pm Lola O.

    I miss the old design, this one will take some getting used to. Or are you just transitioning to a new layout?


  58. December 19, 2009 @ 6:57 am Ian Y

    I've seen merlin~ Yeah I like some of britsh TV show such as Skins and Couple ring~ it's good show~ hehehe


  59. December 18, 2009 @ 9:58 pm Ian Y

    Now I am watching Charlie’s angel 2 meximum speed(?) dring write this reply~~~ hehehehe it’s really fun film~


  60. December 18, 2009 @ 5:50 am admin

    Merlin is awesome! The cast really works well together and the storytelling is solid as well as the special effects. You won't regret watching a single minute.

    My favorite character is morganna!


  61. December 17, 2009 @ 2:43 am Lola O.

    How is Merlin? I’ve been thinking of watching it, but haven’t really heard much about it.

    I feel like British TV is so much better than American shows.

    Has anyone heard of Misfits? It’s a new one on the E4 channel.


  62. December 17, 2009 @ 2:42 am Lola O.

    Ah, my current favorite show is Glee. I cannot say enough good things about this show. It is funny, quirky, heartwarming, and just 40 minutes of purse fun every Wednesday.

    It’s on hiatus till April, which really sucks.


  63. December 17, 2009 @ 2:40 am Lola O.

    Yeah, I called my phone but no one has been picking it up. They don’t make it anymore so I will be getting something else that is hopefully just as awesome as this phone.

    Not having a phone is a horrible feeling, especially when you don’t have anyone’s number memorized accept your house and mom


  64. December 17, 2009 @ 2:39 am Lola O.

    Yay!!!! Another Legend Of The Seeker fan. I am in love with this show:)


  65. December 17, 2009 @ 10:43 am Phoenixstorm

    Subtitles! You just have to learn to lip read, does that make sense, probably not.Anyway, I'm also watching Merlin, Legend of the Seeker and old episodes of Birds of Prey!Woohoo!


  66. December 17, 2009 @ 12:45 am Ian Y

    by the waynow adays my favorite TV show is Dextor season 5~and I will start kings(?)king of New york~but I need subtitle~~


  67. December 17, 2009 @ 12:42 am Ian Y

    R : don't blame me~~ 🙂 I love my blog's name~~ heheheheheheLola : wooooo…. I sorry for that you lost your mobile… I know your feel very well. 'cause I bought mobile 10times since 2002.I am really forgetfull specially with mobile and wallet.I had lost even my suitcase when I travelled UK.


  68. December 17, 2009 @ 12:38 am Ian Y

    Ok…. I recognize that you guys are no common enemysbut I am not a easy mark too~ hehehehe


  69. December 16, 2009 @ 11:10 pm R

    Actually, I was just thinking…I don't really want the actual MP3 player…I just want to win and have the most comments! I guess that makes me freakishly competitive.


  70. December 16, 2009 @ 11:08 pm R

    LAN : you don't know what you're doing entering this silly fruity MP3 player contest. Can't wait for the uni party saturday!


  71. December 16, 2009 @ 2:47 pm Lola O.

    I feel like we need to make this commenting somewhat entertaining over the next 9 days so how about what's your favorite drama and/or tv show right now?


  72. December 16, 2009 @ 2:46 pm Lola O.

    Ahhhhh…I cannot believe I lost my phone. Word of advice do not put your phone in your sweatshirt pocket where it can easily fall out.Especially when your attention is focused on kids. Kids make you lose things including your mind so easily.


  73. December 16, 2009 @ 2:44 pm Lola O.

    I guess a little coloring would add some character to her. I think Minnie needs a permanent marker smile makeover.


  74. December 16, 2009 @ 2:43 pm Lola O.

    Guess what? I lost my phone and I am so pissed right now at myself.


  75. December 16, 2009 @ 11:59 am R

    Oh LAN you're so silly. I know you do want that pink Minnie MP3 player for your rainbow-unicorn blog! P.S. My word verification is 'hymens' HAha!


  76. December 16, 2009 @ 11:16 am Phoenixstorm

    I'm sure Minnie has been put through worse. A little coloring won't hurt her, I guess.But you have to win her first!


  77. December 16, 2009 @ 11:14 am Ian Y

    I will ask to minnie if she don't mind recoloring


  78. December 16, 2009 @ 2:12 am Ian Y

    this match is kinda hard for me

  91. December 15, 2009 @ 12:50 pm kissmykimchi

    Ha! Youre right and I would have if he had mentioned it before I made the post!


  92. December 15, 2009 @ 12:03 pm R

    I was thinking…you should give it to Ian unless it's one of those "wolf wolf" situations. Then it's on.


  93. December 15, 2009 @ 3:00 am R

    You’re so crazy. You should just give it to Ian!


  94. December 15, 2009 @ 7:02 am Phoenixstorm

    Everyone I hope you realize that the only comments that count toward the competition are ones that appear on this page. Good luck to everyone!
