ONE DAY, TWO BEACHES

When the international students went to Ganjeolgeot for a field trip last year, I was surprised to see a nice spot in Ulsan that could easily become a crowded tourist destination if only it wasn’t remotely located. I promised myself

LADY IRA IN KOREA – DONGDAEMUN DESIGN PLAZA (동대문디자인플라자)

After our Gapyeong trip with Lady Ira, Nelsa, and Xylene, we went straight to Dongdaemun. A common tourist spot that oddly I have never visited before. It was the three ladies’ idea (or at least one of them) to go

LADY IRA IN KOREA – GAPYEONG ADVENTURES (PETITE FRANCE and NAMI ISLAND)

THE INTERNSHIP

Yeah, I know. My blogging activities have not been keeping up with what’s happening in my life. Trust me, I am soooo frustrated that I am not able to share here all the adventures that has been going on lately.

NAMINARA REPUBLIC – AUTUMN 2014

Please indulge me on this one final autumn post (for now. *grin*). I have been wanting to post about this for one year now, but apparently, I had difficulty in finding time. I took too many pictures in Nami Island,

SUITING UP – AND COINCIDENTALLY APPEARING ON TV (?)

So the other day, I had to suit up to attend an Oil Hub Conference at Lotte Hotel here in Ulsan. It was an annual event if I’m not mistaken, aimed to build relationships and exchange information amongst industry players

SEOUL WEEKEND

I really am feeling some sort of angst at the moment, but I don’t want to write any of that here. I already did in my personal (non-online) journal last night, and I was surprised at its length. Anyway, before

JINHAE CHERRY BLOSSOMS 2015

Jinhae is one of the most popular spots in Korea to watch the cherry blossoms. Thus, I was uber ecstatic when I discovered that I just moved to a city (Ulsan) that is very very close to Jinhae. And since

CHERRY BLOSSOMS 2015 – ULSAN, SOUTH KOREA

Last year, I visited South Korea for the third time, and I chose Spring instead of Winter, for a change. Despite my lack of finances, and lack of travel companion for that matter, I pushed with the trip (yes, alone!)

ULSAN WEEKENDS – DAEWANGAM PARK

When I first arrived in Ulsan, I was surprised to see that the city is actually huge. I had been imagining it to be a small suburb, with few places to see. Boy, I was glad to be proven wrong.

TEAM FOSTERING

A couple of weeks ago, our office team had a team building at Eugenio Lopez Center in Antipolo. I was part of the planning committee, so I think I was more excited than most of the people from the team.

LONEWULF AND SINGAPORE
