[Seoul Diary/Reflection] Winter Is… On Its Way

It's November. Every Seoulite has embraced the arrival of jacket season, apart from me. The weather was still hitting 20 degrees C at the end of October. It took a sharper downturn to highs of 14 just recently, depending on the day, and in the evenings it can hit anywhere between 10C and -2C! Somehow,… Continue reading [Seoul Diary/Reflection] Winter Is… On Its Way

[Thoughts] 17 days before I go to S. Korea

Actually, in all honesty, I've been sitting around, restless with the thought of packing. I refuse to be… Continue reading [Thoughts] 17 days before I go to S. Korea
