It has been a busy, busy three weeks for me. When I reach home from work, I head for the shower and then my bed! I kinda miss blogging 🙂 I managed to flee from the office at 5.30pm, went
I liked the second half of the walk best because we visited a gorgeous hanok in the neighbourhood, saw some paranomic views of the hanok rooftops and walked around a very school called the Joongang High School which was used as
I have been facing some difficulties with this blog for the last month or two. I am getting my host provider and ISP provider to to do some troubleshooting for me. The preliminary assessment is that a trojan horse or

We spent most of our first day exploring Ihwadong around the Naksan Park area. It was a super cold and windy day, and I was shivering under my coat all the time, secretly hoping for the sun to come out
The first thing we did after checking into our hotel at Myeongdong – the Ibis Myeongdong – was to look for a place to have dinner. For a long time, we have been experiencing massive cravings for good Korean food
