Summer term isn’t taking much of my time thus far so might as well get this long overdue post done already!
One of the main reasons my dad chose to go to Korea during winter season was that he wanted to experience skiing. It was, honestly, one of the best decisions ever!
A place for all first-timers. We were taught how to ski in this area but were also allowed to go into the ‘real zone’ once we already felt skilled and brave enough.
Moving around in ski boots required a lot of effort so my first attempts were pretty embarrassing. When I couldn’t stop when I wanted to, I would eventually bump into another skier. That happened a couple of times until I finally knew how. I never fell though!
This was the ‘real zone’ that I was talking about. Haha and that’s me above! ;) It wasn’t too difficult to get used to but I guess it all depends on one’s determination and self-belief… I felt nervous at first when I couldn’t control myself, but knowing that others could do it, why couldn’t I?
It was such an awesome view to see professional skiers do their thing! If I lived in Korea, I would have probably chosen this as my sport. No kidding!
We were only given a short time for this, but it was definitely the best part of our trip. If, someday, an opportunity like this comes your way, don’t be afraid! It will surely be worth it. :)
What my life consisted of the past several weeks. Frequent visits to Moonleaf Tea Shop — delicious drinks + free wifi + only 10-15 mins from UP… Where else shall we spend our breaks? Loads of paperwork + exams. Imagine having to work on 3 case studies, 15 plates and 6 final exams on the last week of the sem… The most stressed I’ve been in a long time!
Sad to say, only a week left and I’m back to school. Yep, summer classes. ;_; This is why I’m sure I won’t be able to finish Project 52 on time (I’m not even halfway yet!!!). Boo… And since there’s really nothing interesting to blog about lately, I’ll still be posting some Ilocos and Korea photos (which I know are so last year huhu sorry).
Hope all of you are having a great summer! :)
That one book you discovered and the very moment you finished reading the last word, in that last page, you swore to yourself that you will never tell anyone about it—ever, even risked your so called petty reputation for the sake of keeping it a secret and you find out that a year or two later, people have been smudging it on their faces trying to prove to everyone that they’re cool and groovy now that they’ve read the book and all you want to do is drown in self shame because you weren’t able to do anything about it but watch everyone collide on the same book. So you move on with your life and you read another book and the same shitty story happens. The end.
And worse, it gets turned into a movie…
Exactly how I felt about Life of Pi.

I envy youuuuuuuuuu. How's Korea? :( —by Anonymous
Heeey, don’t! You’ll get there too someday! :) And oh, Korea’s wonderful! Going there during winter season was worth it (there were times when it was plain torture though haha)! But I’m sure it’s just as beautiful during other seasons! :) Make your dream happen! <3
