The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

Yes you.

We live to blunder and to learn from our mistakes. Oh I apologize if my blunders do not end off with a sincere bow and apology whilst raising red flags. And another for my stupidity, for my failure to hail to your superiority and outstanding intellect, because stupidity gets on your nerves. 

Some people should just get off their high horse and have a huge slice of humble pie. Rights and wrongs aside, carry on with your oh-so-mighty demeanor and I'll be watching how you crumble in life.

Yet another phase

So here I am lying in bed, mentally prepping myself for the first day of school. The thought itself seems so surreal. 

The word school has become so distant, having gotten used to work life for the past year. And I truly did enjoy the experiences at work, partially attributed from the wonderful people I have met whom I can't be more than thankful for. Because it's not just work related I have learnt from them, but also pieces of valuable advice that also translates to lessons in life. &It's not every day you get to meet colleagues and superiors that will go out of their way to help you grow. 

Going back to school, I hope I will always bear in mind the takeaways I have. One of which, to retain the rigid morning body clock and routine. To not forget how good it feels to learn from everything and anything I can, & I sincerely hope that I have since grown and my outlook towards school will from hereafter remain that way too. & to see a whole new realm of world is a huge eye opener, to meet with an environment that propels me to make me wanna do better.

This time round, school will not just mean running in late halfway through lessons, nor checking in attendance the easy way out, & burning the midnight oil to meet with datelines (this I'm crossing my fingers). & I will try to put myself out there as much as I can, to take up every opportunity that comes my way. 

Because every experience undertaked, is a lesson learnt the best way.

3rd for the day


So sick of hearing people make excuses.
Have you forgotten the many other times that went otherwise?
It's like you're a living contradiction.
Well I guess maybe you just don't want it enough, cause if you do, you'll make it happen.
Even against all odds.
But next time, you might wanna try a better excuse, 
or how about a little 
h o n e s t y ?

'nuff said.

In all honesty

So I turned 21 & I'm stuck in my comfort zone. Sue me.

It almost seems like its a modern day taboo  to be 'bumming around', these 2 words my exact response when people ask what I am doing. My answer always translates to their widened eyes/concerned faces, followed by 'whys' & 'don't you intend to do something about it'. Yes I am aware how the taboo words sound after a chorus of answers with everyone doing great things with their life. Cant i choose to take a breather for sometime, while i still can afford to? 

Strictly speaking however it's not 'just bumming around'. I do enough to get by, though I guess it's fair to say I can be doing so much more to pace towards the long run & make a jump start steering through the courses. But I'm way too snug in my current disposition to muster up guts & break out of this comfort zone. Is it the lazy bones? Or am I just not quite ready? If so, hw long will it take, &will time ever make me feel certain that I am?

 I guess my parent's constant medley of probing fires a series of bullets like the questions I don't have a clue to. So I haven't had my life figured out, &the future is a sea of uncertainties. (Ps. Possibilities too)
Here's a thumbs up for being 1, 2 or 3 steps ahead, y'all who have it all covered. I'm just taking a little detour, to slow down & take in the clouds, the breeze & sound of the calming waves, trying to ignore the race for time the world competes each other against.

Totally unprepared for the freezing weather, which seems to get colder with every day, below 20 degrees in the day and around 7 degrees in the night.

At Bukchon Hanok Village surrounded by palaces and traditional houses.

















Jok bal (pig trotters) for dinner

 Took the Namsan cable car up the mountain to get to N Seoul tower, breathtaking night view overseeing the city. 


"Locks of Love" - Thousands of padlocks attached to the fence, with their keys tossed away, a symbolization of undying love. &we too, locked away our love for the 5 of us girls, Cheek, Germ, Alicia, Shauna & Monica.

Finally cheap shopping at Ewha women university~

Ewha Women University shopping
Hong Dae (Dinner & Drinks)

(Rice balls there are to-die-for!!)

 Visiting Monica's school — Sogang University.





Monica insisted we try the famous beef intestines. 
  


Gotta love the concept of indoor "tent private areas" where we can eat and drink our night away. Let's just say we all had our drunk moments in this entire trip. Hahaha.
It's a norm for Koreans to drink Soju in shots while having their meals. 
To get intoxicated, try Soju bomb, a mixture of beer and soju, the culprit that caused me a hangover.

 DAY 8:
Hongdae
DIY cake
Homeplus for food soveniers
Halloweens @ bar
Club Cocoon



While Monica was away in school, we popped in a DIY cake shop and frosted up a cake for her 21st.






Last night of our trip, headed over to Home Plus supermarket to buy local food souvenirs back to Singapore.

 



Late night packing, trying to stuff everything into our luggage.


Settled at a Halloween themed bar for more Soju bomb, and Club cocoon to end off our night.

&that sums up the end of our trip. Looking back at these photos I'm missing those days in Seoul already. *Insert sobbing emoji*
Nevertheless enjoyed all the bonding time with the girls, since our hectic schedules don't usually allow us to spend such great amount of time.

Looking forward to more vacations like this. Till then.
