DETOX

So Facebook has become an ugly, ugly place these days. As the Philippine election is coming (about 11 days from now?) people are getting more rabid. A lot of black propaganda here and there. I have never seen my country

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

ULSAN’S TAEHWARU

As this is my final semester I made a promise to myself to explore Ulsan more because, who knows, this could be my last chance to see this city. One of my target sites to visit is Taehwaru (태화루). It is

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)

So after Urban Elite visited Korea another set of friends came to visit Korea. This is a smaller crowd composed of Lady Ira, Nelsa, and Xylene (whom I have never met before). Lady Ira and Nelsa are both officemates of

ULSAN CHERRY BLOSSOMS 2016

Spring is here indeed! I first noticed the cherry blossoms getting in full bloom in our campus. I was like, really? It’s just about mid-March (then). By the time I estimated it was peaking, I scheduled to go out to

URBAN ELITE IN SOUTH KOREA

So last February, my brods and sisses from the UPLB Street Jazz Dance Company paid me a visit here in Korea. Weeeeee! 🙂 I was actually hands-on in assisting them in preparing for their itinerary, being the one who is

SEOULITE FOR WINTER

Back to Ulsan, back to blogging. 🙂 I have been very busy past few months that I did not have enough time to take it slow, breathe, and write. As my Noona at school has told me, “Hey! I have

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,

And since I’m already on a roll, why don’t I just share this video I took last year. It was my very first taste of autumn, and it was in Uijeongbu. 🙂 I was inside my friend’s car when I

AUTUMN FOLIAGE – GINKGOES, YOUR TURN

Now, I want to share the other shades of autumn. Ginkgoes! I like how the canary yellow complements the fiery red to orange hues of autumn. I first saw ginkgoes in my trip last year to Namiseom (Nami Island). Oh!

SNOWFALL IN ULSAN

So couple of days ago was my first “first snowfall”. Is it a thing? I’m not sure, but I’m making it a thing anyway if it isn’t. Why is it special to me? First, I grew up in a tropical

OF FLOWERS, BUS RIDES, AND ALCOHOL

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

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

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!)
