Sleeveless in Tokyo

The flight was a little too short to be considered international compared to others… It’s like flying to San Fran from LAX! I feel so blessed to have easier access to other countries now that I live in Seoul. Anyhow, somewhat positively lightheaded, the arrival process at Narita wasn’t all that eventful, but don’t be…

Tokyo: Cause it’s super Kawaii!

Sorry about rather low quality photos (compared to the “nice” ones taken on our Canon).. just learned last night that we forgot to bring the connector thing to transfer photos from the camera. Bummer, but it is what it is… While I’m planning on doing a huge Tokyo post once I’m back in Seoul, meanwhile,…

Food for Thought

It’s hard to believe that there’s less than six months left of the year. My first official summer in Korea has been both eventful and a bit tough: lots of exciting projects yet this tropical rainforest weather is just something that will take a long time to get used to. I thought Hong Kong was…

Pizza in Seoul

…and no, that is not an oxymoron. Seoul is no longer how I remember it from back in the days; it’s full of great international cuisine and cool places to hang (many of them a lot cooler than the ones in the States, sorry friends. hehe). You can just about find anything you want whenever…

Gwang Hwa Mun where King Se-jong and General Yi Sun-Sin proudly stand. It’s become a norm to spot tourists in Seoul nowadays which wasn’t the case back in the days. Pretty sure these are chrysanthemums used for tea. So pretty. Cheonggyecheon (청계천). Last time I was here it was snowing so much I could barely…

Kowloon Almost drank it because we were afraid the restaurant manager was going to yell at us. We literally walked everywhere- just wish I knew the names of the places I was in It’s hard to find good dim sum in Korea so we ate until we couldn’t anymore. She must have hated us because…

East meets West

Hong Kong has to be one of the most dynamic and exciting cities I’ve been to. Besides the interesting culture, I see mountains covered with lush forests to the right and an ocean to the left. Even the weather is quite dynamic- it rains cats and dogs one moment then it’s sunny the next thanks…

Stay a little longer

Finally got to visit the Han River sort of accidentally when we went to Yeouido (여의도) to check out the Cherry Blossom Festival (벚꽃축제). ‘Two rabbits caught in one attempt’ as Koreans would say. Not bad, not bad at all. Did a long walk around a nearby park for a morning workout. With Cherry Blossoms…

Let a thousand flowers bloom

After a long wait, spring has finally arrived in Seoul and the flowers are blooming all over the city. Forsythias (개나리): One of the first signs of spring What excites me most is the Cherry Blossoms (벚꽃). Interestingly enough, they have always been my favorite kind yet I had never seen them in person up…
