The Couch Potato 101!

‘Descendants of the Sun’ episode 11 and 12 is up!! After a torturing week, new episodes are finally here. I’ve been catching up with so many other Song Joong Ki’s dramas and movie because I was having some serious JoongKi withdrawal symptoms /fangirl alert

I’ve been really lucky to be able to watch the latest episodes of ‘Descendants of the Sun’ through Viki.com. Some of you might ask, why did I chose Viki.com this time?

Actually, I would alternate between Dramafever and Viki for my dramas depending on what dramas I am chasing after. If I want to watch an ongoing drama that is still in midst of airing, I will go for Viki.com.

Because Viki.com updates LIVE.

‘Descendants of the Sun’ is so good, I cannot wait even a day to catch it. At Viki.com, as long as you subscribe for a VikiPass, you get to watch the episodes right after it’s aired over at Korea! Due to licensing agreements, Dramafever.com is not able to air the episode until 4 weeks later.

Vice versa, there are some dramas where Dramafever.com gets the upper hand!

That aside, Viki.com is also extremely nice to fangirls like me. They even have a All About Song Joong Ki collection, where you can backtrack all the dramas and variety shows he starred in! Viki.com won’t be taking all the credits though. I hopped over to Dramafever and caught ‘The Werewolf Boy’ starring Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Young. They have better quality videos over at Dramafever, in my opinion. xPwolf_boy-710x450

Unfortunately, you will need to have Freedom VPN in order to access all these contents.

Sign up for ViewQwest’s Freedom VPN to enjoy Viki and Dramafever without hassle! 

Anyway, I’ve become a full grown couch potato ever since I started hibernating at home. School work is finally ceasing, and submissions is in just 2 weeks time. I feel like I am extremely prepared to start my career as an official couch potato already, hahahahaha.

So Song Joong Ki fans, are you ready? Brace yourself for the weekend Song Joong Ki fever with viki.com, and get your gears ready! Here are 3 simple steps to the ultimate couch potato guide:

  • Get ready your favorite snacks and chips

Accompany it with a bottle or 2 salsa sauce, you are good to go. No need to leave your couch to grab food, no disturbance in between your shows!

  • 4 bottles of 1.5l water

Always hydrate yourself. You can go on without food, but not water. 4 bottles, so that you will get up for a toilet break after you are done with the 4! Not so unhealthy after all!

  • Blankets for your couch

Make it as cosy as possible, and warm yourself up. Isn’t it more comfortable with soft and cosy blankets around?

Okay, okay, I am just kidding. These are extremely unhealthy ways to enjoying your drama marathon! Always give your eyes a break after an episode or two, and head out for a proper meal before proceeding on with the next! Off to catch ‘Penny Pinchers’ now that I am done with 12 episodes of ‘Descendants of the Sun’.

Stay tuned next week! :D

CouchPotato’s tips for easy surfing!

Hey guys!

Following up the previous post on how to fully utilize your fiber broadband, I am here to add on a few tips where you can get better internet at home!

Apart from changing your phone points to LAN points, there are also plenty of ways you can try out to achieve better internet connection and coverage. Here are just a few tips I use to make sure I don’t lag out in between my gaming sessions!

1. Find the perfect spot.

The location of your router plays a huge part in getting the best connection wherever you are in your apartment.

NOT a perfect spot

Okay, the router might not exactly look very pretty…. I can understand why you want to hide it behind your closet. But by hiding them up, the Wifi signal will be disrupted!

To ensure a smooth connection at all times, it is best to place your router at a spot without anything blocking it.

Also, the best height to place the router is between your shoulder and waist! Avoid placing your router next to a thick wall. Stone, metal and concrete can all disrupt your WiFi signal, resulting in bad connection.

 

 

2. Get rid of any obstructions.

Like the first point mentioned, always make sure you are not hiding your router!

Keep your cordless phones, wireless devices (smartphones and tablets) and microwaves far far away.

Otherwise your router will pick up third party signal causing router interruptions.

 

Please don’t do any of the above!

Cordless phones and microwaves in particular, will affect your router’s signal if they are positioned nearby. So avoid permanently placing these devices or appliances within 1 metre of the router to avoid any signal complications!

3. Of course, a good router.

How can we forget about this. A good router is essential!

A good router makes me happy! :)

If you haven’t get one, do check out ViewQwest’s latest promotion! Simply top up $199 to get the ASUS RT-AC88U router when you sign up for any 2 year ViewQwest Fiber Broadband plans.

With my fancy new router and setup, I’m definitely looking to spruce up my house too. New Year should come with a new home! I will be going to the Only Home 2016 roadshow next week to find out more ideas about giving my house a make-over, and to check out the amazing ViewQwest Fiber Broadband deals at the fair too!
