Flight back

With temperatures at an all-time high this week, it’s lovely to hear the soft peal of thunder over the hum and buzz of the air conditioning tonight, isn’t it? While it’s still officially summer, I thought tonight’s rainy reprieve might be a cool (pun unintended) time to post something other than the bikinis and maxi dresses that the newsfeeds are currently rife with.

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re not lounging in a #Laboracay-worthy outfit, making the most of the holidays by frolicking about on a pretty beach filled with pretty people. If we share the same preference for sweater weather over the summer heat, join me in my wistful longing for a little drop in temperatures through my Korea diaries! :)

Sweater weather is yay. Oversized “Love” sweatshirt, Mango. Sakura shorts, The SM Store. Beanie and necklace, SM Accessories.

This is where we went on our second day. Everland Resort in Yongin is about two hours’ drive from Seoul. It’s the largest theme park in South Korea owned by Samsung, and it was formerly known as Farmland—you’ll see why in a few.

Tights, Dongdaemun market. Sneaker wedges, Skechers. While there were a few brave souls who were actually wearing heels, most people I saw were in sneakers or boots—it’s 100 hectares of walking around, after all.

Along with my phones, I brought my ice blue Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 for some instant snapshots.

Kept it in this itty-bitty camera bag, along with the tickets, some money and IDs.

안녕! Back on the grind after a delightful week of spring flowers and 12-degree weather in South Korea. I’m sitting on the front porch of the hanok (traditional Korean house) of Moon Guest House in Unni-dong (dong means “neighborhood”), where my family and I stayed on our first night in Seoul.

The hanok is owned and maintained by Anna’s family. It was built by her grandfather, a nobleman, 50 years ago, and they welcome guests (including K-pop stars like Exo!) here who want to experience traditional Korean culture.

Quick shoot at the airport before my trip to Seoul yesterday afternoon. It’s 8 degrees here when we arrived at night, but of course I couldn’t wear my jacket yet in the sweltering heat of Manila, heh.

A lot of firsts come with this, like the first time to (finally!) visit a favorite city, first time to travel with the whole family including cousins, and my first time out of the country on Holy Week.

They say Lent comes in tandem with conversion—a change in attitudes, mindset, or principles. Sometimes, the change is temporary, like not eating meat or going on Facebook. Other times, the change is as profound as forming a new habit or subscribing to a different way of doing things.
