21/02/2019

It's always good to do some research before traveling to another country, and part of that process involves figuring out how you're going to navigate while there. As intimidating as it may seem, I've narrowed down five applications outside of the common Google scope that will make things easier if you're planning on visiting South Korea.…

Osaka in December

05/01/2019

This wasn't the immersive site-seeing type of trip like I had last year. It was more, let's go shopping and wander through department stores until we forget how stressed work made us before this holiday, kind of trip. Anyway, I filmed (kind of), but as always, I was distracted by pretty things and didn't film as much as I could have. I realized this kind of thing, though…

Spending a Week in Malaysia

18/11/2018

Recently, in a kind of spur of the moment thing, I booked a trip with a friend to visit Kuala Lumpur and Penang. I'm trying to visit different countries in Asia and get a bit more out of my comfort zone (more than I already am anyway) for the time being, which means, more trips abroad (I'm thinking Taiwan and Hong Kong early next year). This is the first…

The Kids Will Be All Right

12/08/2018

I felt strange. Not really a tourist or visitor, but feeling like one in my own city. Connected, but not necessarily, and really only just in the occasional situation, and occasional environment. I felt a bit fragmented like I had been unraveled and was desperately trying to piece myself back together, yet I was always missing a few bits, and I found that they were much more important than…

物の哀れ (Mono no Aware)

17/01/2018

Looking back, I would have to say that I’m incredibly lucky. Lucky in a lot of instances, which considering my pessimistic personality, is something that I’m not quite used to. I don’t know why, but there’s still this part of me that likes to chip away at any smile I may have and repeat the phrase over and over: You don’t deserve this. My initial near-breakdown and nervousness…

Christmas in Kyoto

08/01/2018

Apologies that it took a couple more days than originally planned to get this uploaded; my only excuse right now is the fact that I'm back at work so I'm lacking a bit in extra time to finish these things. Either way, here you guys go - part 2 of my Kyoto trip.…

I spend the night restless, drowning in a canopy of fading light from the a lamp across the room, occassionally reaching over to read another chapter of the book tucked underneath the rough cotton sheet of the pillowcase. It’s stained in leftover foundation and flicks of mascara, reminisce of impromptu naps just before dusk. There’s a smell there if I adjust my head the right way, drop my…

My Last Saturday in Busan

24/07/2017

The end is near everyone! This past weekend was my last weekend in Busan. I leave bright and early on a cozy 7am flight to Jeju Island Saturday morning… so in a very stereotypical girls day fashion, Caleigh and I spent the day shopping, eating, walking, and doing face masks to close because we will be departing our separate ways (too) soon. I’m churning through footage still from the Skywalk,…
