Travelogue: Winter in Seoul Part 8 (Insadong and Namsan Tower)

We spent our last day in Namsan Tower and some last minute shopping in Myeongdong. My mom and I decided not to enter the tower anymore as we basically already had a view of the city from the cable car. But going to the tower grounds is still highly recommended as there are various sights to see there and some souvenir shopping as well. It was very cold and windy at the grounds so we decided to stay there only for a few minutes. Though I love the cold weather, it was unbearable when the wind blows. 

We also went to Insadong as it is one of my mom's favorite areas in Seoul. It is a traditional mixed with modern neighborhood that is full of artistic vibe. I am impressed at how well Korea was able to preserve their culture and tradition. It just shows how proud they are of where they came from and how their culture has affected their modern society. I wish more cities are like this: taking pride of their culture and heritage. Anyway, enjoy the pictures!

Long Distance Relationship: Making it Work

Cardigan: H&M | Dress: Topshop | Oxfords: Debenhams
Ribbon: Forever 21 | Necklace: Thomas Sabo | iPad Case: Kate Spade

I don't normally talk about my love life with people, but since this is the love month, I'll make an exception. I know Valentine's Day is long gone, but when it comes to romance and relationships, it can never be too late. No matter how old you get, love and romance are experiences and feelings that are omnipresent. So though, February is almost over and we're nearing summer, an article about love and romance can never get old.

Suicide stories are always heartbreaking. I can never understand why someone would want to kill himself. Though there are so many problems and challenges we encounter everyday, killing yourself is never the solution. For what it's worth, I think it will only make matters worse. You may not have to think about your problems anymore, but those you left behind will. Not only that, your death will only add to the stress and problems that they have. Don't be selfish and think about yourself. Think about the people around you as well. How will they feel if you kill yourself? How will they cope if you are no longer around? How will your death affect them? Will your death solve your problems? These are just a few questions to ask. Suicide - I will never understand it.

Travelogue: Winter in Seoul Part 7

While Paris and Venice are known around the world as the most romantic cities eve existed, there are also other cities that can rival. While most people who have been to Seoul would disagree, I beg to differ. Seoul is also a charming city exuding so much love and romance. These locks of love are a testament of how love and romance-filled the city is. So many couples come here to dedicate a few minutes off their time to declare their love for each other and to promise to love each other forever.

Travelogue: Winter in Seoul Part 6 (Nami Island and Petite France)

This is probably the most memorable part of my tour in Seoul this time around. Though I was excited to go shopping - like always - and I have always admired their palaces, Nami Island and Petite France are just two different places that exude a different aura. I have seen them multiple times in Korean dramas and movies but to see its very existence is surreal. I wish to see both places again during Spring. The cherry blossoms would surely add more romance and sensation to my visit.

Short Post: Legacy

Just like Augusts Waters, I don't want to perish to oblivion. I want to leave a legacy; something people will remember me for. I want to leave a mark. It's not easy to leave a legacy but I believe everyone has the capacity to do it. We may not think of it now, but in the future, I am positive we will all leave something to be remembered for.

Spend vs Save: Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder vs Banila Co Prime Primer Finish Powder

Sebum is my skin's nemesis. I've always battled with oily skin and I find that no matter what products I try, my skin still produces excessive amount of oil. Powder is supposed be the product that will help control my skin's sebum production but most of the powders I have tried before did nothing. Yes it will make your skin matte in the first few minutes and then make your skin as shiny as mirror after. Some powders I have tried also cake on my face - which was disgusting. After searching far and wide for the powder that can answer my oily skin problems, I think I found the right product/s for me.
