Just a quick note for some vocabs.
I used to have a problem when learning Korean words that come from Hanja (chinese character).

But once I know it, it’s pretty interesting ^^
Cos it can be linked to other words.

1. 휴양 (休養) [HyuYang]

The 휴 is the same word with 휴가 (休暇) [HyuGa] and 휴일 (休日) [HyuIl], which means take a rest (쉬다).
~가 in 휴가 means times / period.
In dictionary휴가 means vacation, which literally means time (가) for taking a rest (휴).
~일 in 휴일 means day.
So it means day-off, or day for taking a rest.

The 양 in here means something that improved / getting better.
Just like the words 요양 (療養) which means recuperation or recovery.

So when you know the origin of the word, the 휴양 is not only recreation, but it’s like taking a rest that can makes your self getting better (either feeling / condition). Something that’s more about relaxing, enjoying something.

2. 청춘 (靑春) [CheongChun]

The easiest way for me to remember this 청 is 청바지 [CheongBaji] which means (blue) Jeans.
This 청 means blue / green / young. Word that indicated something new, fresh , the step to begin of something.
Another example is 청사진 which means blueprint.

The 춘 in here is another word for spring (봄).

Just like in dictionary 청춘 means youth.
So imagine the feeling when spring is coming, it’s bright and colorful. Something that can make cheer up, something that full of spirit.

오래간 만이에요???  업데이터를 못했어서 죄송해요…
(it’s been so long isn’t it?.. sorry for not updating)

well.. actually I’d like to share what I’ve found today..
(well yeah may be some of you already know it, but may be not…so..just share it..)

I used to face incompatibility with Korean Application… (yeah…start to use it)..

and before I found this update I used to use Microsoft AppLocale (MA) to help me open some applications.. so I used to make a shortcut to run those applications under MA

i.e : when i want to open the web and save the file.. if i didn’t open it under MA, the filename will be written in weird character…but if i opened it under MA, it will run well

At first it was very helpful, but I started frustating when i should open some files (exe)… so i should click MA as much as the exe file that I want to open :(… errr…when it become 20 exe… errrr… have to find another way then… than make 20 shortcut icons for the exe….

Sooo..what i found is MUI i think it’s kinda update from Microsoft to run the windows in some languages.. So it’s not only work for Korean Language, but you can also choose other languages (especially those who has not latin aplhabet)

Kinda relieve now ^^ I’m free from click click n click to make shortcut under MA ^^
