Pado is absolutely a new favourite place of mine in Seoul. I almost skipped out on visiting it, but I figured I should at least check it out, and I am SO glad I did. It's downright gorgeous and in my opinion, definitely worth a detour. Cafe Pado is best accessed via the Hapjeong station… Continue reading [Cafe Break] Cafe Pado, an Art Cafe in Hapjeong, Seoul
Things change a lot in five years. I started this blog while still struggling in school and now I'm over halfway through my undergraduate degree. Not to mention that it's now 2020 - At the beginning of the last decade I got into Kpop and I have started the 2020s in Seoul. I can't even… Continue reading Five Years of Twenty Swans!?!?!
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
I headed out early the other day to grab some things from the convenience store a minute down the road, but after I ate I got hit with some mad jetlag. Fair, as it was reaching 2am back in the UK. But I also meant to buy a multitude of other things which I didn't… Continue reading [Thoughts] My first day (or 3) in Seoul
Hi everyone! I've had a bit of a wild week and it's been a while since I updated the blog, so I thought I'd share what I've been up to. As I type, it's Saturday (the 27th April) and I've just come home from my part-time job. I went out on Wednesday, Thursday AND Friday… Continue reading [Chatter] Easter/Pre-Exam Catchup
Aside from all those good resolutions for the sake of being a better person (more on that later this month), one of them is to visit more cafes. Especially local ones that can't really be found anywhere else. It seems a bit pricier than my usual Tesco's £3 meal deal (that I'll never give up,… Continue reading Cafe Visits: Javalounge
Many of you will know what a TED talk is - a presentation of inspiring ideas and concepts by people from all sorts of fields. We watched many via Youtube whilst I was at school. TED is a nonprofit organisation dedicated to sharing great ideas, and has spread worldwide in their commitment to this. The… Continue reading My Experience at TEDxBrum 2017
I'm nineteen now, everyone. Almost at that big two-zero and of course, by this time nobody quite wants to get older. Right now I actually want to skip to my late twenties when I have my life a little more put together but, of course, it can't be done. I spent my birthday weekend in… Continue reading My Weekend in Bristol!
So, last month I didn't put up a Diary entry because I had it written and just forgot to schedule it - So now I have combined it with January events this time around. This is what I got up to...

This blog survived another year! That's pretty cool, if I do say so myself. I have followed many a blog that has just disappeared after a few good posts. More than that, I am proud to have just stuck to putting things up even without a schedule or promoting my posts on social media properly.… Continue reading Two Years of Twenty Swans!
