It is EXACTLY 1-month since i returned from Korea on 24 Feb...
What have I been doing?
cleaning up after my dog (yes, the shit and all),
doing random housework (and hey, i cooked a number of times, though all the dishes, regardless of it being tofu, meat or veg, all tastes the same since i use the same seasonings! hahaha)
meeting friends every other day,
thinking- alot, especially trying to figure out what i really want to do with my life from now on...
going on employment portals to seek for jobs,
and the thing i spend the most time on so far is to - DREAM...
Hmmm... It's been a while since i have been feeling so dreamy, before Korea, i have been working non-stop for (OMG) 7 years, since 2003... then i made a "lightning" move and decided to go learn Korean... like barely 2 months before the commencement of the course and dropped everything, including my job. (Where to find that sort of impulse?)
Whilst in Korea, i seriously studied quite hard + spent all the remaining time touring everywhere and falling sick.
Everyday was sardined-packed. So now that i m back... I sort of feel out of place having absolutely no schedule and routine to report to... I thought i might feel uneasy about not being in a job, but to my own surprise, i dont really feel the way i thought i would feel. I do value time and money-earning, and even though i am about to deplete the last drop of savings i have, i still think it is worth to invest this kind of "free" time "dreaming".
What is is definition of "dream"?
- a succession of images, thoughts, or emotions passing through the mind during sleep.
- a vision voluntarily indulged in while awake; daydream; reverie. - an aspiration; goal;
- a wild or vain fancy.
- something of an unreal beauty, charm, or excellence.
To think about what my dream is... Did i put in any effort to achieve them... Did i actually set out to reach my dream, or did i not... Do i even have a dream in the first place?
Everyone goes through life like a "this-should-be-the-way-you-live" routine. There is always "the right way" to live though people always preach about "there is no right and wrong"... bullshit.
So, because of that routine people forget about dreaming. Here are the few types of dreamers i know of:
1 who dreams and does something about it;
1 who dreams and does NOTHING about it;
1 who gets too busy living life the "right-way" and forget to dream;
1 who dreams only because others do and they dream of the same things as the "others"
Foody is a Korean animated and paler version of a Tasmanian Devil. I tried figuring out what this "animal" is right from the first day i got it as a gift like 7 years ago and finally, i conclude this is a cuter and paler version of a Tasmanian... Cute!
This entry is gonna be a photo-spam of all the awesome scenery and moments captured to commemorate the beauty of the final moment of my 6-month solo-Seoul Adventure which has officially ended on 24 Feb 2011 - via the lens of a pro camera enthusiast who is also a good friend of mine.

24th February marks the last day of my Seoul Adventure.
I left Seoul with heavy baggages, but with a light heart. I knew i had tried my best to study and though my Korean proficiency is mediocre, this whole experience was truly one of a million.
I toured places alone, made friends from all over the world, survived my first ever winter for the first time and was away from home for the first time too...
Yes, i hated the fact that winter was sooo unbearably cold and that i had to wear layers after layers of clothes and still felt cold - ironically, when i was leaving, there was this warm feeling... Like this was 2nd home, and i felt slightly sad to depart.
Having said, I still looked forward to being reunited with my beloved family. A feeling is hard to describe...
Seoul, bye bye - i'd definitely be BACK!
FLOWERS!! My welcome bouquet from cp...
My complexion really sucks. Can tell that my body can't take the cold weather well eh?
