Flashback Friday: Friends Café

I’ve had so much to share with you guys since I had a lot of posts drafted, but I never got around to posting any of them due to the fact that January had been nothing but an emotional roller coaster ride for me and my family.  And it doesn’t end there.  The battle continues and we all continue to be strong as we face this ill feeling of uncertainty, but I’ll spare you the details for now.

New Year, New Attitude

1

As a new year is upon us, I’m once again feeling that excitement I usually get whenever it’s the beginning of a new year.  So much positive vibes lingering in the air, so many things I’d like to accomplish and so many “plans” for the future.  I thank God for giving us each day to live as we face each challenge that comes our way with Him.  I have this goal wherein I should do all things with a positive attitude because God has given us so much more than we deserve and we ought to give back by being nice and good to other people.  At least, I’ll try to do just that and kick ass in this thing I call my job.

My Travel Round Up for the Year 2017

This year has been really epic for me due to the fact that I went all out with travelling to both nearby places and the other side of the world with my boyfriend, siblings and my parents.  I’ve never felt happier and broke at the same time because as I’ve mentioned in one of my posts before, travelling takes a toll on my finances, but nothing can replace the wonderful memories I’ve made with the special people in my heart.  Therefore, I’m sharing with you some of my favourite memories below.

Gamcheon Culture Village @ Busan

146While we were in South Korea, I told Carlos that I wanted to go to Busan for a day or two just because we were already there, so off we went to the second most visited city there.  And since we were not able to book a hotel in advance (due to lack of planning), we decided to do a day-trip instead to check out the Gamcheon Culture Village.  A lot of people may wonder if it was worth the trip and for me, it was.  For some reason, I don’t seem to care about money when I’m travelling, so that my friends, is how I go broke whenever my trips end.150 Continue reading “Gamcheon Culture Village @ Busan”

Rare Sundate

I’m taking a quick break from blogging about Korea because I know how long I’ve already dragged it for, so I’m writing about something more recent.  Working life and “adulting” tend to get in the way a lot of what I want to achieve that I’m slowly losing interest in doing what I do.  Therefore, with that said, I try to “run away” to nearby places here in Asia just so my mind can be refreshed and I can be motivated once again.  There was this art exhibition by Team Lab that we wanted to check out, so Carlos and I decided to go to Shenzhen last Sunday as we were both off from work.

Seoul Adventure Part 4-2: & The New

76Contrary to my previous post, Common Ground, is a good representation of modernism in my opinion because it showcases the creativity of the person(s) who came up with this idea.  Stores in Shipping Containers?  That would’ve never entered my mind if I hadn’t seen this.  And special thanks to Carlos for taking me to such a cool place.  Wouldn’t have known about it if it weren’t for him.

A little bit more of Beijing

45

Carlos and I were only in Beijing for the long weekend, so we tried to visit as many places as we could like “The Temple of Heaven, The Summer Palace and the Forbidden City“.  We were able to visit the first two, but since we did not buy our tickets in advance for the Forbidden City, we were only able to see the entrance which was a pity because we were already there.  Apparently, they only sell 80,000 tickets per day if I can remember correctly, so for those of you who’d like to be able to enter the Forbidden City, you should book/buy your tickets before going there or you’ll end up like us only being able to see the entrance.

The Great Wall of China

1

Aaaah yes, Beijing.  When I was in primary/elementary school and had just started learning Geography, my teacher had covered the topics “continents, countries, etc.”.  And I learnt that China, till now, is one of the biggest countries in the world.  I’ve obviously learnt about the capital that is Beijing, but I had never thought about visiting it till two years ago.  The reason for this is because whenever I’d travel to another country and I’d meet people and let them know that I’m from Macau, they’d ask me if I’d been to the capital and always my answer would be no.  So it got me thinking “Why haven’t I gone there anyways when I live in the country?”.  That’s when I started nagging Carlos about going there and for several times I’d asked him, he turned me down because he didn’t want to until last month when I got him to agree.
