Musical Friday w O.When

O.When – Today

Loved the voice. Quite mellow…


Buying a Wallet is Annoying…

I needed a thin wallet since I didn’t need a key chain, or really needed a big wallet. I always use my debit card in Korea, and they don’t charge for transactions. You can even use it to buy a dollar worth of something. As such, I didn’t really need a coin slot. However, I would have prefered it. In any case, I picked this up from Shinsaegae on Gmarket. I had a coupon as well, so I got it for a little over $34CAN. I like the size since it tucks away in my pockets or bag, and leaves me with a lot of room to stash other things in the same area.

Billfold in the inside, which nothing else.

Pretty thin, since they eliminated the coin area. Though, I wish they had a small zippered section or something.

This wasn’t actually the wallet that I wanted, but the price was decent enough. However, I already have my eye on a small zippered wallet on their website, which was more what I had in mind.

Do you like buying wallets?

Eating At: Billy Angel Gangnam


Though they have a few locations around Korea, I went to the Gangnam location with my friend after eating at the Ugly Stove.

The interior is pretty, and definitely fun for some photo ops. Also, the cakes are pretty nice. But hella expensive. I really enjoyed the red velvet. It wasn’t too dry, and wasn’t too thick. Perfect with my Americano.

The restroom situation is a bit unfortunate though. I was expecting it to be lovely, but apparently you have to leave and go outside. So, I skipped it as I was told by my friend it didn’t smell too pretty.

My Love…Daiso

Honestly I love Daiso Japan more than Korea, but seeing as I don’t live in Japan, and we don’t actually have any in Toronto, Daiso Korea is a blessing.

I am still able to get a lot of cute and useful things. However, when it comes to stationery/organization materials for work related things, I do like Daiso Japan a little more. In any case…Here are a few things that was a must for me. Meaning, I bought them as soon as I got here, since they were so useful to me before.

Washi Tape
~1,000won in single packs, double, triple, etc
They have a lot of cute varieties. For some, however, it isn’t as sticky and so the tape might curl up. So, if you are using it to decorate something for a long period of time, a little glue or double sided tape at both ends might be a good idea.

Paper Cutter
This was a great buy. It gets annoying to have to use an exacto and ruler for some things. So, just tossing paper in, and sliding the knife is nice. I wish they had refills for the knife though…but I’ve cut a lot and so far so good.

Laundry Clips
I bought this mainly because I saw a few people using them to hold their planners open for flat lays. Despite how they look, they are a little strong. So I do use them for laundry, holding my open snacks closed, and other misc things.

Suction Hooks
LOVE THESE. They aren’t too pretty, but even back in Canada I have them pretty much everywhere. They can hold what it says on the package(2.2kg? I forgot, but I can leave my backpack full on the hook and it’s fine). I use this at work on the board. I clip my notes together with binder clips, then I hang it on the hook. Helps when I don’t have a lot of organization areas.

Since I don’t like buying a lot of shelving here (since it’s a hassle to sell later when I leave), so this combination works well to hang various things. If the holes in a basket are large enough, I hand a basket on it too.


They have various magnetic clips as well, so I like using them on my doors in Korea, since they are all metal.

Resuable Straw Brush
Since I had a few tumblers with straws, this is nice to help give them a thorough clean.

So, Daiso is fun. This Korean collection was released for Hangeul Day (Korean Language Day) and Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving). I biked an hour just to get them lol. This is how fun it is for me.

Side notes:
They do have an online store, but it doesn’t connect with the points system they have.
On that note, they have a points system, but you can’t sign up unless you have a phone number that can be verified.
You can buy Daiso products through Gmarket as well, but they have different sellers on their website, not just Daiso. So, it could mean you would pay between 2000w-4000w per seller. So it is a bit of a pain.

Musical Friday – What I Want

니화 (NiiHWA) – What I Want (매드독 OST) 

Lately Ive been watching the Korean drama Mad Dog. Its been interesting to watch. But this is the ending song and really like the pop in the intro. 

I missed the last two weeks. Just been busy/kept forgetting to upload/schedule songs. 

I hope to blog soon, so I hope that itll be up. I mean I have been editig pics right on the phone in the park on my way to work. So hopefully Ill get on it soon :)

Musical Friday w Akmu’s Dinosaur 

Akdong Musician – Dinosaur 

This week was Korean Thanksgiving. So, I had Tuesday until Sunday off. Unfortunately I caught something last Sunday evening…and still battling it now. Thought it was a throat infection, but there was no usual white spots I get, and so the doctor said it was just a cold. Not fun. The meds arent working their magic either. I only have two days left to get better, so Ive been listening to upbeat mysic and dancing to tire myself out so I can keep sleep lol. 

Hope you all have a lovely Friday :D
