Voortman Chocolate Chip Cookies

Voortman chocolate chip cookies was not the usual packed cookies. It was soft (not as hard as Chips Ahoy!) and not crumbly.  The chocolates chips were soft and sweet, and overall the cookies has mild sweetness. Dipping it into milk, the milk seeps right through the cookie. 😋

New Place of Wonder

July 28, 2018 | 8:26 am
Morning thoughts

I’m not really good with change. Being in a new place makes me feel the flutterflies (fluttering butterlies) in my stomach. A new place is unpredictable and it makes me feel uncomfortable but there are places that cannot be discovered if I don’t step in it. It will always remain unknown and scary. There’s no other way but to go there and step my foot on the ground, meet someone who’s been always on that place just like when the Little Prince did as he traveled different planets. It’s good to have a childlike character of curiosity as I go out. In a child’s shoes is a world full of wonders, transforming into something that is always new and unique. In these footsteps I am taking, I should be excited for the new place of wonder. The destination always matters because if it is a place of nourishment and growth, my feet would always come to it. ❤️

Planner Desining and Calligraphy

I was invited to do planner desining with my sister and our friends. Art materials were cluttered on our table – pretty washi tapes, calligraphy pens, colored pens/pencils, stickers and cutouts. 💖 It was fun doing this! They inspired me to practice calligraphy and to design my planner more often.

I was fond of Ate Carla’s cutouts and washi tapes!

It’s a rainy day today and I’m drinking hot milk ❤️♨️ I’ve been really craving for its creamy taste and this  makes me smile 😊

Hoping for the next days to be warmer.

2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics G-100 Concert

November 1, 2017

The 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic G-100 Concert was my first K-pop concert! This was a very memorable one since I got to attend where the heart of k-pop music is. Ever since we landed in SK, my sister would always bring up this event because she wanted to see EXO. This was held in the open grounds of Gwanghwamun Square and the concert was for free! And one of the best things in life are the things that come for free~ 🤩

When we were in the subway station, we can already hear the music. I was excited and my sister who was very excited, started screaming and rushing! I was like ‘chill bruh’ but as I got nearer, the music got louder and I became very excited and came rushing as well hahaha.

We got to see BTS, Twice and EXO perform. BTS was really good at performing that even from afar their movements were seen. For Twice, I did not know them during that time. I searched about them online, weeks after our trip and it was cool ’cause the song ‘Likey’ which they performed at the event, was released 2 days before (Oct. 30) G-100 concert. 😃 EXO was the last group to perform and everybody went crazy! Well, maybe not all but most of us haha. It was amusing to see two adorable high school girls in front of us passionately singing and screaming at the top of their lungs for EXO. 😊 My sister and I cheered hard!

I admire how the staff and security kept the event organized given that it was for free and in an open area.

So NCT became my favorite group just this early 2018. While browsing the concert photos, I was surprised when I saw Mark in the picture! NCT was also there. *my heart 😆*

A man from SBS (he was wearing an ID) approached us while taking photos after the concert and gave us torch-like lightsticks. He kept giving lightsticks to random people and came back to us to give the remaining so we each got a pair of lightsticks! Gamsahamnida Ahjussi~

We strolled around the place with the slight hope to see kpop artists but even if we did not, we found the wonderful video projection on the high walls of Gyeongbokgung Palace.

South Korea 2017: Cheonggyecheon Stream x Teseum

Cheonggyecheon Stream

Cheonggyecheon Stream is located in the middle of the busy citylife. The stream is a good place for a walk.

Mammoth Coffee

Many people lined up in Mammoth Coffee so we decided to try it. I bought one of their espresso beverages (I think it was Iced Almond Latte) and ’twas flavorful and affordable.

Now when we were on our way to Teseum, we noticed a man holding a bunny. Our faces lit up when we saw this cute baby but we didn’t really expect he would come up to us and let us hold the bunny! Ahjussi was really proud of his pet hehe

Teseum

Teddy bears are awesome! We went to Teseum – a teddy bear museum located in Jongno. The museum was adorable and interactive. Teddy bears were used to show the Korean culture from the past to the present era. They also have this teddy bear town set-up showing the different places in Seoul and Gangnam was there with the popular Korean entertainments (sorry I don’t have enough pictures). 😄
