After six long years…

I was so overjoyed to be reunited with my dear Korean chingu (friend) after six long years. We were workmates back then and it was a pleasure working with her as she was optimistic and passionate about life. We used to chat a lot over coffee after work, but we lost contact with each other after… Continue reading After six long years…

Happy 9th!🥂

I can't believe it's been 9 years since I became a certified Ajumma. It feels as if it was just yesterday that my husband and I met; and now we're celebrating our 9th year as a 부부 (bubu: married couple)! Just like in the past years, we celebrated it with nothing grand. Since our special… Continue reading Happy 9th!🥂

Medical Check-Up At KHMC💉

I spent my morning at Kyunghee University Medical Center for a general health screening -physical exam and laboratory tests (blood test and urine analysis). In every testing room I went to, the first question was "한국말 할수 있어요?" (Can you speak/understand Korean?)  The doctor was really good-looking and of course, I told him that. Haha.… Continue reading Medical Check-Up At KHMC💉

Late Night Date | 늦은밤데이트

Some of the wonderful things about being married: dating without curfew and going home together. ㅋㅋㅋ 🙂 At around 10:30 PM, Hubby and I visited the newly-opened Noonaholdak branch near our place. It is a chain resto that offers various roasted chicken dishes. I love roasted chicken more than fried one so I will definitely visit this store more… Continue reading Late Night Date | 늦은밤데이트

Love in the Time of Acne

When I was young, I had fought a battle against acne. It was a constant source of embarrassment and frustration in my teenage years. It severely affected my self-confidence and self-esteem. Every time I got bullied because of my skin problem, I acted cool and pretended that I wasn't hurt, but I cried myself to sleep every night.  There was… Continue reading Love in the Time of Acne

I Love HUE…

A lot of people think that coloring is just one of the activities that help with keeping children occupied and engaged. It is usually associated with kids but in reality, coloring also gives therapeutic benefits to adults. No wonder it has become so popular these days. Unlike many popular ‘trends’, adult coloring is one that is beneficial to our well-being; and this… Continue reading I Love HUE…
