I’ve Got Seoul…

Of course I couldn’t end my summer without a quick stop over in Seoul.  I made sure to do all the things I desperately missed like eating Korean bbq, hanging out in cute cafes, getting my nails done, watching soccer games and taking photos with Melody.

On my birthday, we ate lunch at The Tasting Room in Itaewon, which was delicious.  I highly recommend the spinach flatbread and lasagna. This was the first time I went to their branch in Itaewon, which was behind the Audi dealership, closer to Hangangjin station.  While waiting to meet Elaine, Melody and I took some photos by the outdoor sculptures at the Leeum museum which was further up the hill from the Tasting Room.

After lunch, we hung out at the glamorous penguin cafe. I mean, how could we not check it out with a name like that.  Then, I had to make sure to catch the airport bus and I had no issues. This was the second time that I had to fly on my birthday, and unfortunately I didn’t have any famous Korean celebrity encounters on this flight. But, I did get a handwritten birthday card from Korean Air and ate miyukgook (seaweed soup) on the plane.

It’s always a fun time stopping by in Seoul, especially seeing my friends that are still there. Until next time, xoxo.

a new season

I’m back in Singapore for year two and and I am continually reminded that this is a new season for me. It already feels so much better and different than my first year. My theme for this new season is:

Do-the-thing-you-think-you-cannot-do

Yes, there are quite a few things I have on my plate this year that scares me completely. Things that I am seriously feeling like I will fail at, like getting our non profit organization approved and based in the States, running in a half-marathon in November, while taking on more responsibilities at school. Yet, I’m excited at the possibility that maybe these things can actually happen.
