Mid-Week Korea 2015

it's the first day of April and my 5th day in Korea. i'm back at the same old place - Edae's Beans Bin, sitting at the very same spot i did in the Winter 2013, and subsequently early Summer 2014. i got my lashes and hair done today and i almost feel like a legit Korean. just a bit. not that i aspire to be one - #justsaying. i'm quite happy being Singaporean #thankyouLKY #itwillnevergetold

the weather is getting warmer - cold but warmer. if that makes sense. and i've been really resting quite well (other than last night). but really i have been sleeping so much (better). may i be well recharged when i get back. 

nonetheless, it feels good to have a break and revisit. walking through all the familiar lanes, still getting lost at iconic places and having favourite places. it hit me this time though, that i may never be able to truly be a tourist in Korea. ever. it's getting harder to find the little things that amaze me in Korea - similarly to how we probably take things granted in Singapore. i recall being able to find amusement in every single detail. the signboards in subway stations, the complicated buildings with hidden treasures at different turns. the hard sell marketing of cosmetic shops. i also recall missing the familiarity of knowing what lies in every corner in Singapore, and not in Korea. i have that now, here. and i can't wait to explore somewhere else and continue being amazed at the little things and learning more about a different culture. 

i spent the first couple of days overwhelmed in nostalgia and greatly missing my exchange days. truly! i relish the feeling of being wrapped in layers of clothing and being hit by the cold wind as we head out of the subway station.. the food.. ah. a couple more days.

much thoughts these days.

will be meeting a couple of old Korean friends these couple of days to catch up.

BTW: i've tried at least half of the waffle menu at Beans Bins and i can finally say that it truly is overrated. as Abi would say, Udders does this 10x better. *^^* #singapore #thankyouLKY
