Last week at this time, my family and I followed by Robert and his Korean gf took a cable car up to Namsan Seoul Tower. The weather was twice as cold when compared to the crowded Myeong Dong shopping haven (where we rummaged before walking up to the cable station). Hobbit and I immediately fell in love with the view.
The tranquil gazebo up there
We wished we could capture that moment through our blinking lenses so we could blink to it whenever, where ever. I remember asking Hobbit up there, "why do good things have to end very quickly??" Well, nothing is permanent no matter how much we want something to be. I am glad we could always say "there's always next time!" I used to deceive myself when I say 'next time.' Perhaps you'll never know, your next time could be 'many times!' So next time, I would bring Mitch and Micelle here together with their sport trophies. I know they will love the view!! :)
Wanted to post some pictures on FB but too lazy to even pull them out of the camera sd card. Haiyoh Mashi...
Happy Sabbath everyone! It's so good to be home. I am seldom in many countries in one day with three different time zones. When Hobbit and I finally arrived home (Bkk), we literally felt like the bed is where we belong for the next whole week. It was a fun-filled trip but we did a lot of what we were not used to doing -- walking. Yet I think, with all the microfiber upholstery walk, my parents, brother and the both of us deserves a pat on the back for all the self-explored trip in a very unfamiliar place, land of the Morning Calm. We took the challenge to travel like the local and we did every day during our stay in Seoul. It was mind boggling studying all the subway's routes and there were times where I (I'm the big boss on this trip besides my biggest boss/friend, Josh) I just want to settle for what was the easiest but come to think of it, the one week trip wouldn't be worth it if things were otherwise from our initial plan. If there's one habit I learned and develop during this trip, it has to be talking to God while walking. If it wasn't for Him sending the right person at the right time, things wouldn't be as smooth as they were. Thank you God for a safe and satisfying trip. God is so good, all the time.
My cousin just celebrated his birthday last month and the weirdest gift but also a practical one, according to him, was receiving beer gifts for his birthday! He told me that was his first time receiving such gifts and he wasn't complaining haha! Hmm...Why am I blogging about him? Oh well, maybe because I was happy to be able to chat with him through skype last weekend. Although I asked him to skype with me for almost 6 months now, he never thought that skype could be so cool. So, when he managed to get an account in skype, the first person he called for the the test out call was me. It was amusing to hear him react in such a way that everything was a 'surprise'. Even so, we still managed to make free tours around our respective apartment. Great time.
This is an awesome video tutorial by Michelle Phan: 9 Different Silk Scarf Ideas. I admit that scarf is seldom my accessories because I only have a few of them and don't really know how to be creative. Yet, this video really inspired me. I'll probably go dig up those scarfs that people gave to me as gift because I have never bought one myself. Enjoy this video!
