Transition

Year 2018.

The whole year was in limbo. It was a rediscovery of things that I can and should do. It was a bit of a year where understanding of one’s self is essential in moving on with life. It was like taking out the weeds and making sure that the seeds are being planted in better soil.

Year 2019.

We are trying to grow the seeds into a better fruit-bearing plant. This year we will try to be more careful with our actions. Each action shall be well-thought-out. The operative word being TRY. Although, failure should never be considered and we have no room for complacency.

We are not getting any younger. A better life should be seen in the horizon. It is time for some longer term plans.

(For)Everland

Was there ever a moment where you’re in a place that is so beautiful you cannot help but be teary-eyed?

That’s how I felt with Everland.

From it’s beautiful landscape, thrilling rides, up to its lazy pandas, the place was just so beautiful.

I conquered this golden roller coaster.

And met this really sloppy panda.

This must only be the place where there are friendly and goofy horror characters.


I am now wondering why did I visit Everland just now?

I am now having lunch and I have a lot more time to explorer before the fireworks festival at 7 PM. If ever you will be in Korea, don’t forget this place!

Dilemma

I have always believed that spring is my favorite season. There is something about the wind blowing and cherry blossoms dancing in the air.

Then again, nothing in life is easy. When you are presented with this view, life could never be the same again.

I fell in love with autumn. It’s like a child’s coloring gone awry. There’s a sense of comfort in the fact that these green leaves are now orange, yellow, or red.

Now, what will I tell people what my favorite season is? That, I still have to figure out.

Relaxation


Last time I was here, I had the wrong decision of booking for an atrocious budget accommodation. This time, I said, I wouldn’t subject myself to such situation ever again. 

So, I waited and asked this amazing deal at K-Grand Hostel near Sangwangsimni Station. This neighborhood isn’t a stranger to me. 

So, here I am, preparing breakfast which I don’t usually do because I love sleeping in.

Welcome to the Homeland


First, I would like to comment Cebu Pacific Air because the flight arrived 40 minutes early. My problem of getting to Seoul via cheapest alternative just became feasible.

Then, to Shinhan Bank for awesome exchange rates. 

I remember what the head flight crew said during landing, “If Incheon is your destination, welcome home.” I suddenly felt all giddy inside.  It was a busy couple of weeks and I couldn’t think about this trip. So, as soon as I realized I am in kpop land again, the feelings from my first trip to Korea overflowed.

I feel like this trip is gonna be awesome.

Back At It


I am gonna leave my normal life for now.  This is probably the only trip, so far, that I am taking just for the sake of escape.

I am leaving the worries behind and return with a rejuvenate feeling and a clear mind. So help me.

Can’t wait to be back in my second home. 한국! 진짜 보고십다!
