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

As the days are getting colder, I would like to post something about the flowers here in Ulsan. You see, one thing I love about this city, and well, this country in general, is how they are able to fuse

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
