Korea – May/June 2012 – {Part 4}

Wow. I can’t believe I am still on Korea after 5 months. That shows how busy I was from June till October! Anyway, this is likely to be my last post on Korea, because I have a lot of backlog posts to do, as well as the Phuket ones! *excited*

For our Korea trip, we only went to Seoul (first leg), and then Jeju Island (second leg). Our Jeju trip was short, but we were all pretty wow-ed over by that beautiful island.

Lovely sunset spotted! 

Flowers and harbour, and a perfect weather. What not to love?

Trendy clothes? ;)

The beautiful harbour just opposite the inn we stayed in.

On the first day, I think we went to the Teddy Bear Museum. It was… quite a let-down. Or perhaps we held high expectations? There’re many museums on Jeju-do, and I think they might fare better than this.  Read more…

Just a little romance

Sometimes, we just need a bit of reminder that we are cherished and loved.


We just got back from a 5-day vacation, and I am going to share the trip and some holy grail makeup soon!

Till then, enjoy life, for it’s NOVEMBER already!

If you noticed, I have promised to blog more, but I still haven’t. Well, it’s because my paternal grandma fell ill some time ago, and we got all busy visiting her in the hospital.

This is my grandma, with my aunt, my sis and I, during my cousin’s wedding. 

I have 2 grandmas, one from my mum’s side of the family, and the other from my dad’s side. Honestly, I love them both, but I doubt I ever properly express it.

You know how specials grandmas are? They have the ability to make every single of their grandchildren feel as though they are the most loved one. At least, I felt this way.

Cherish them, love them, and spend time with them, before it’s too late.

Ma Ma (‘grandmother’ in Canto), I hope you get well soon.

It’s the 5.5 year

So, in a wink of the eye, we have gone through 5 and a half years together.

Even though it’s cliche to say that no words can express my love for him, I still think that some feelings can’t be accurately transcribed to writing. Nevertheless, I have written a note of thanks to him, for everything.

It’s easy for us to take our closest family and friends for granted, isn’t it? Write a thank-you card, for they deserve the reminder that they are very dear to us. 

We will be taking a huge step forward next year, moving in together and then getting married. J, to the many years happily ever after, cheers!

A cheeky, happy day

It’s a good day yesterday – my cousin’s wedding! I used that as an excuse for me to have a day of rest, and I realised I really needed it.

Went for breakfast at Starbucks in the morning before going for a facial session in town. After that, I went for a hair cut and treatment session. Everything was so pampering!

When I reached home, I helped my mum and aunt put on light makeup and then did the most awesome makeup for my sister! She had glowing skin the entire of last night.

Here’s a photo of my baby J and I. (More photos from the wedding to be up soon!)
