Coffee shop ~ Europe Travel Theme



I really appreciate how Korean people enjoy spending time in coffee shop, which make coffee shops here in Korea available in many branches, ranking from the franchised one to the local one. No matter which country each coffee shop comes from, the decoration and taste are always come with amazing idea. They always amaze me once I step inside. Just like this one “Jae koo coffee”.

The main theme of this coffee shop is to support “Reading” which use European Travel theme in the decoration, it’s more than enough the make us feel relax as if we really are spending time in Europe. That is not to mention those long book shelf and lamp on each table for us to enjoy if we not happen to bring anything with.  I can’t help not being surprised. As a book and coffee lover, the day that I can spend time in such place was like blessed. Definitely, “when everything come to coffee, the fantasy will never end.”

Paris, the town of romance and vintage. I can smell it^^

Sorry the pic is a bit blur.. poor camera.

Only if it closer to my school, I’d spend my study hour here all day.

Couldn’t help myself not to fall in love with this little cute phone booth.

It reminds me  how much I miss London and urges my wanna-travel feeling to growth again.




Hyundai Global Friendship Tour 2011

Last week, my GSIS department recommend us to join the field trip organized by Hyundai co.  This trip is arranged for the main purpose to help foreign students in Korea to understand more of Korean culture and Korean industry. This year 1,920 of international students involved in regular university degrees are welcomed to join the program. With approximately around 40 students per university. They support everything for the trip including travel insurance and souvenirs, which made the trip even more awesome! I was totally enjoyed!!

At the cultural village, our friendly tour guide show us around, the view of the cultural village. It was a rainy morning, so I can hardly take the beautiful picture at all cos need to carry both the umbrella and stuffs. However, we can’t blame the rain for that because I feel like the nature seems to be very happy with the rain. ^^

The tour management team provided us the raincoat which we transformed into doctor.lolz! Even it’s rain, we still can enjoy the activities that organized for us, like making rice cake, corn cake, visit the village, and attending Korean traditional wedding (which our couple friends transformed into).

My friends, look how happy they are, might be because the meal so delicious.

After lunch, we watched the Korean performance. Traditional songs and music. The singer also asked her to sing along, which made the atmosphere a lot happier. Then, we ended up taking picture, but poor me again, the picture was not really good.. :((…

Then we continue our tour to Hyundai co. to see how the production work. I was really impressed to see the factory for the first time of my life. The machine is everywhere and I rarely see the worker. just 1 here and 1 there in the whole factory. We walk all the way through the corridor to see the process, since the baby car is just a plain steel till the handsome one. Sadly, inside the factory it is prohibited about taking picture, so….After everything set, we also received some gift back home. For the girls backpack and pink hat. For the guys, wallet and blue hat. It was really a great experience ever!!

Saturday Outing ~ Samkyobsal

Since our dormitory doesn’t provide Saturday dinner, we always hang out with the main purpose to eat some meat. Of course, usually, there is not many delicious food with plenty of meat provided. We like the best, Samkyobsal (grilled pork). Normally, we eat them at the buffet restaurant as it’s cheap and we can as much as we want, but now we just find a very good place that the meat also tasty and even if it’s not buffet, but we can still be fulled with it. I can say, the meat there taste real great!!


Sunday Lunch ~ Cambodian & Vietnamese Food

Who say we can’t make a good cook without the official kitchen? My sister technique, just this little microwave is enough.

The Ginger Chicken was ready first, while waiting for other dish to be done, I keep asking them “When we ready to eat?” I really can’t wait!! The smell is damn gooooooooooooood!!

Friendship ~ Concept from “The Little Prince”

“Nothing is perfect,” sighed the fox. But he came back to his idea. “My life is very monotonous,” he said. 

“I hunt chickens; men hunt me. The fox hearing the sound of a step that is different from all the other stepsAll chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike. And in consequence, I am a little bored. But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat . . . “

The fox gazed at the little prince, for a long time. “Please–tame me!” he said.

“I want to, very much,” the little prince replied. “But I have not much time. I have friends to discover, and a great many things to understand.”

[…] So the little prince tamed the fox. And when the hour of his departure drew near–

“Ah,” said the fox, “I shall cry.”

“It is your own fault,” said the little prince. “I never wished you any sort of harm; but you wanted me to tame you . . . “

“Yes, that is so,” said the fox.

“But now you are going to cry!” said the little prince.

“Yes, that is so,” said the fox.

“Then it has done you no good at all!”

“It has done me good,” said the fox, “because of the color of the wheat fields.”

“One only understands the things that one tames,” said the fox. “Men have no more time to understand anything. They buy things all ready made at the shops. But there is no shop anywhere where one can buy friendship, and so men have no friends any more. If you want a friend, tame me . . . “

Tatoo ~ Jordan Sparks

The song that remind how much we struggled in life, how much mistake we had so far, even if there left us scars and pain, people always make mistake, one day they will stop and sure enough, one day they will change their mind from time to time.  The only thing is, if we live life like it’s the last one for us, then we will know that there is no time to worry about everything we have done. Of course, those memories are still in mind, and those memories affect every step of today who we are, it must be thankful to it, but it’s no time to waste more. There are a lot new things to see, meeting new strangers, experiencing new destination, free yourself, then you will treasure this decision later on or not, that will be another tatoo! (˘⌣˘)

Oooh… Oooh… Ohhh..
No matter what you say about love,
I keep coming back for more,
My head in the fire,
sooner or later I get what i’m asking for
No matter what you say about life,
I learn every time I bleed.
The truth is a stranger
My soul is in danger,
I gotta let my spirit be free to,
Admit that I was wrong and then change my mind.
Sorry but I have to move on and leave you behind.

I can’t waste time so give me the moment
I realize nothing’s broken
No need to worry about everything I’ve done
Lived every second like it was my last one.
Don’t look back got a new direction
Loved you once, needed protection.
You’re still a part of everything I do, you’re on my heart just like a tattoo,
Just like a tatto, I’ll always have you.

I’m sick of playing all of these games
It’s not about taking ties.
When I look in the mirror,
Didn’t deliver
It hurt enough to think that I could stop
Admit that I’m wrong and then change my mind.
Sorry but I gotta be strong and leave you behind

I can’t waste time so give me the moment
I realize nothing’s broken
No need to worry about everything I’ve done
Lived every second like it was my last one.
Don’t look back got a new direction
Loved you once, needed protection
You’re still a part of everything I do, you’re on my heart just like a tattoo, I’ll always have you.

If I live every moment
Won’t change any moment
Still a part of me and you.
I will never regret you
Still the memory of you
Marks everything I do.

I can’t waste time so give me the moment
I realize nothing’s broken
No need to worry about everything I’ve done
Lived every second like it was my last one
Don’t look back got a new direction
Loved you once, needed protection.
You’re still a part of everything I do, you’re on my heart just like a tattoo.
Just like a tattoo
I’ll always have you.
