Buying Korail Tickets Online

This July, we’re going to Korea to drop by the Boryeong Mud Festival. Since there is only limited accommodations in Daecheon Beach, we were forced to spend some time in Seoul (me) and Busan (my friend).

We decided to book rail tickets instead of going there by bus because we wanted to be sure that we have a ride to Daecheon Beach. We didn’t have the facility to book bus tickets so we went with the railway.

To book tickets with Korail:

1. Access the Korail Ticketing Website (here). On the Rail Tickets tab, you’ll find the Booking Online option.

2. You can now input the details of your trip. We chose Transfer in Travel Type because there are no direct trains to Daecheon. Then, you may click Inquiry.

4. Once you have selected your trips, you will be asked to input your personal information.

We will do the same cycle for our return trip to Seoul. We couldn’t afford being off-timing because it will also be the day of our return to Manila.

Being at home during the day makes you do stuff you don’t normally do – like cleaning. Then, I discovered this dirty coffee maker.

There is already a culture of bacteria growing in the leftover coffee. It’s beautiful and gross at the same time.

Eventful Weekend

This weekend was one for the books. It was definitely tiring but it was also a great way to bring myself back on track.

Korean Class

We didn’t have class last time. The teacher had to attend to something. Without the class, it seemed like a part of me was missing. This weekend, we learned about asking where something is and some activities like (to go and to do). I am actually learning a lot and watching Korean dramas have become easier.

Hoping that I will get good grades so I can continue on to the next module.

Volleyball at Home Court Gym

My teammates and I scheduled a reunion game. It was 2 years since we all played together and the company one-day league prompted us to want to play with each other again. It was full of fun and I was actually more tired from laughing rather than from the play itself.

It was a (sort of) goodbye game for one of our teammates who’s going to Canade for post-grad studies. I hope that she will be successful in this endeavor.

MMVL Off-Season Tournament

Although we lost, it was still a good game for us. The scores were 26-24 and 26-24. If only we had more fight in us, we could have ended the first set easily. It was a learning experience, definitely. It was also the first time played together so it was like testing the waters.

I am hoping that we will fare better, and win the game, the next time around.


With all that’s happened this weekend, am I ready for Monday? The first order of business tomorrow is to write down everything that I have to do for the week.

AJA. AJA. Fighting.
