SEOUL DIARIES 008: CAFES IN ITAEWON

Along the glorious and vibrant district of art museums and galleries are laid-back cafes offering all-day breakfasts and a myriad of flavoured coffees. In close association to the indie Hannamdong Cafe Street, coffee culture in Itaewon is self-directed and expat-friendly. Expect top-notch Americanos and loads of Seoul Design-Spot cafe galleries! Here are some of my favourites! For more… Continue reading SEOUL DIARIES 008: CAFES IN ITAEWON

SEOUL DIARIES OO3: CAFE-HOPPING in GANGNAM

Gangnam is, altogether, a fantastic spot for cafe-hopping. I spent the entire day here from morning till early evening, until I headed to KYOBO BOOKSTORE at Sinnonhyeon Station. The area is close to the Jamwon section of Hangang River Park, so take a walk to the famous South Korean river if you feel up to… Continue reading SEOUL DIARIES OO3: CAFE-HOPPING in GANGNAM

SEOUL DIARIES OO2: GANGNAM

On my second day in Seoul, I travelled to Apgujeong in the district of Gangnam. To catch a trendy side of Seoul without the unexaggeratedly touristy appeal (aka Myeongdong), head to this part of town. Gangnam has been revolutionized by a wave of new-age Koreans. What I loved: this building dressed in a coat of… Continue reading SEOUL DIARIES OO2: GANGNAM

Hello Kitty Cafe | 헬로키티카페 홍대점

Two years ago I was wildly excited to come into Hello Kitty Cafe in Hongdae. Two years later, I'm mildly amused by how ugly their kitty-shaped waffles have become. The insanely pink stand-alone building is still a popular tourist attraction (cue an aggressive horde of multi-lingual Kitty fanatics), and always will remain a novelty this… Continue reading Hello Kitty Cafe | 헬로키티카페 홍대점

The Great Tom n Toms Escape

Life is endless escapism. Despite feeling very sick, I escaped to Tom n Toms to avoid the accumulating mess in my room which is the result of 3 travel luggages meshed by my bedside. I will have to start packing for my trip tomorrow, I swear. Meddling with my baby Lumix GF6 on a rainy… Continue reading The Great Tom n Toms Escape

Haneda Tokyo – May ’13

Raiding the local supermarkets is a no-go action in Japan! So well-stocked such that the food&beverage galore is every Japan-enthusiast's worst nightmare... you'll wanna cram the entire store into your baggage home. Yummiest kitkat ever! Even better than Matcha in my opinion 🙂 Or perhaps I was just ravenously hungry. Tada!! Pink!:D It was sooo… Continue reading Haneda Tokyo – May ’13

outside my window

The prettiest sights are almost invariably tainted howbeit calculated efforts to keep our perspectives crystal clear. A willfully affirmed fogged vision. We like what we see, forfeit what we don't. That's human beings for you. Yes, the world's less glorious with your eyes wide open. What's that stuck on your window panes? Maybe you should… Continue reading outside my window

169. rain on the roof and instant coffee

“Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives... and to the "good life", whatever it is and wherever it happens to be.” - Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga… Continue reading 169. rain on the roof and instant coffee

162. urban picnic

Introducing, the best things that happened to me in the University: Gardens by the Bay is really pretty! Just less so in the hot sun and erratic weather, thus we consumed the picnic goodies beside the ticketing booth like a boss. I need to go there again in the night with the lights up! What… Continue reading 162. urban picnic
