Last week on Instagram…

It has been awhile since I have done these.

I was on a roll too!

In any case…

I returned from my very mini trip to Toronto (business rather than pleasure). I didn’t do any groceries, so I opted to have McDonalds breakfast. Not a hard choice when it is basically my next door neighbour.

I had lunch with my dear S. We wanted to get coffee, but ended up grabbing Korean lunch boxes, and Starbucks. I bought 3 drinks, and it was basically $20. I died. A tall green frap is about $6.50. Yummy, but I can’t keep up the habit I had in Canada, here, in Korea.

Later that evening, S wanted to drink, so I accompanied here to an izakaya bar. Food was pretty good. Loved the touch of One Piece Characters on the bar.

When I finally arrived home, I had to lay down on the floor, under the AC. It was just too damn hot.

The next day, I was treated to lunch, seeing as I had to pay for drinks last night on my own…due to issues -__- It was yummy going down, but WAY too much MSG. I was nearly passing out an hour later.

I got a mini vacay, so I met up with some of the others to go to Garosugil. We went to Cabogrill. Not too shabby. They have an unlimited meat option, but they don’t like to offer it to ladies, as they never end up eating enough.

We walked about, checked out the Line store. Such cuteness! We got drinks at Godiva, then headed off to Hangang River. Such a beautiful night…though still too humid for a Canadian like me :P

Ate some more BBQ the next evening, after a trip to Costco. It was a different kind of grilled chicken.

Of course we had to kill it with Karaoke singing xD

So that was my week back from Toronto.

It almost feels like that mini trip was a dream. I was so excited to see my kiddies here…I missed them. Funny how attached I’ve become.

6 month milestone is coming up soon…I was amused when I realized that.

Enough out of me. I should attempt to sleep…I figured I would write this up quickly while I couldn’t get to sleep.

Musical Friday Am I Wrong?

Nico & Vinz – Am I Wrong?

I actually heard Nico & Vinz for the first time on my trip to Toronto. It was a short trip, being only a week. But one of the songs kept replaying in my head. This isn’t the one (that will show up next week), but after checking out Youtube, this song also starting replaying in my head…

Musical Friday Am I Wrong?

Attempting to revive the semi dead blog…

Hello Folks!

I am alive :)
If you follow me on Instagram, you already knew this.

In any case, I am alive…and relatively well.

I was in Toronto for a week on some personal matters, and still adjusting my sleep schedule back to KST (Korean Standard Time). As such…it is 6:23am over here, and I am still awake OTL

Well, it has been 5.5 months since I have entered Korea.

Am I homesick? Well, no. I can’t really be since I got to visit home. But even as I was heading home, I was ready to come back to Korea. Of course I missed my close friends (and lucky for me I got to see them all at least twice), but I am rather enjoying the freedom that comes with working abroad. It almost makes me wish I had a desk job. One that would allow me to travel to different sister branches.


But not quite.

I still know that this isn’t something I want to do for the long run. I do have to return home. I have some things I need to get done. However, for the next 7 months, I hope that things will continue to go well.

How are you?

I have been horrible with keeping up with my fav blogs, which I hope to rectify soon.

I have also been horrible with keeping up my own blog…which I also hope to rectify soon.

In any case, I am alive, and well.

Hope you are too :)

I leave you with this BEAUTIFUL engagement capture. Can’t wait to meet this talented duo in the fall.

Musical Friday with The Koxx

THE KOXX (칵스) – 12:00/열두시

I’m basically loving everything that Happy Robot Records makes.

The Koxx was only clicked when I was checking out The Solutions.

Love the way it is so peppy.

I also wish that I could dunk my head and have it dry asap….

Musical Friday Reunited w 정동하’s voice…

정동하 – 취중진담

I used to love listening to him.

Then, my Aunt turned on the show Concert 7080 (Korean), and he opened with this song. Loved his cover of it.

A little whiny…but…all that much more attractive to me!

I’m still working while this posts, but I am most likely super excited for the VERY mini Jejudo trip tomorrow. I cannot wait to get there. With great people, I will hope it will be an experience. It is a shame we couldn’t go for a longer time…but alas…work is always of the issue.

Last week on Instagram…

Bab Burger, or Rice Burger. Bongousse/봉구스…I was told I HAD to try it. I didn’t read it, and didn’t realize I need to smash it once before eating. A little too much mayo, but it was an interesting experience. I might go back to try another (2500 won/~$3)

You know the places that have sushi on plates that travel around a track? The first time I had it was in Korea. This wasn’t as yummy as my first one, but I still managed to stuff myself…

Went to this beautiful house, north of Seoul. Got to say that it was beautiful, and the air really was different!
