Travel Diary: Experiencing Korea’s Old And New

After our trip to Namhansanseong Fortress, our guide took us for a short walk around the neighborhood. She said we had a special lunch set up just a few miles away. It was a beautiful neighborhood full of trees and traditional-looking houses so I didn’t really mind the walk. It felt like I was in a K-drama […]

Travel Diary: Gyeonggi-Do, Korea

Seaside

Last month, I flew to Cebu for the Cebu In The Bag event arranged by the Cebu Chamber of Commerce And Industry. Since the 3-day event was held in Mactan, I made sure to make the most out of the seaside–even if it’s just taking the sea breeze in, walking on the sand and dipping […]

Welcome To The Dark Side

I’ve officially embraced the dark side—of my hair, I mean. I’ve been trying so hard to darken my then blonde hair that in a span of a month, I dyed it thrice! I’m sure you didn’t notice the change because my hair is just so stubborn. For some weird reason, light colors stick so well on […]
