Farewell My Beloved Dad

My dad passed away last night, Feb 23rd, at 7:45pm. My dad who always at home when I return from work or other after doing other activity. My dad who made me a hot tea when he saw me exhausted. My dad who loves me, and I love him so much..

Goodbye bapak, it is hard to live my life without your presence 😦 I’m so sad that you left me. I’m sorry for everything.

Farewell daddy. I believe we will meet again in heaven.

In Nomine Domini Nostri Jesu Christi – In The Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!

Fall in Korea – Day 1: Exploring Seoul

My 3 friends & I are landed in Incheon airport around 10 am KST and headedΒ  to our lodging (Gasan Guest House) somewhere in Namguro.. 6 of our friends already checked-in in the guest house earlier and we’re the last group to arrived. The guest house is small but clean, the owner is very nice πŸ™‚ We have a quick lunch (free ramyeon) before exploring Seoul.

Our first stop is Gyeongbok palace. At the time we arrived, the guard changing ceremony is just finished, too bad for my 3 friends who didn’t get the chance to take pictures with them. So we asked some foreigner to take a group photo (thank you mister!)

And some personal photo at Gwanghwamun

After spent 2 hours in the area, we continue our trip to Namsan Tower by walking (yahoo!. We passed the famous Jongno Tower, Cheonggyecheon Stream & Myeongdong. It’s kinda tired to walk along the distance, but it was fun (at least for me ><). We’ve got to see people on the street after office hour (crowd, traffic jam) and buy snack from pojangmacha (yumm yumm) ^^

And.. tadah! we arrived at Namsan Tower.. Snap some photos at the locks of love..

and in front of the Teddy Bear Museum

We end the day with dinner at a small restaurant in Myeongdong. I try the pork mandoo soup for the first time but i don’t like it. Too much veggies, no pork can be found! At the end, i stole some ramyeon from Dewi’s boul hahaa..

And.. we missed the last subway. Ha! So we return to the guest house by taxi. Thank you Mr. Taxi Taxi Taxi!!

Today is the Day!!

The day has finally come..
Today is the day that I’m going back to Korea, as I promised myself on Banpo bridge last year.
I’m so excited for today, and I won’t let anything useless ruin my day!
I’m going tonight with 11:30pm flight along with 3 girlfriends, surely I won’t feel bored on the 7hrs flight :p

We will rock this trip! Ciaoo..

-In The Cab-

Here I am, sit nicely in the cab while facing a regular traffic *d’oh*
And I remember that I owe my dearest ‘pillow-like’ friend Wina a post, regarding to her Maroon5 concert’s post.. It’s been a while since I wrote it, but just got the chance to post it now..(lame excuse, I know)
So here’s to you Wina.. It’s only a short post, but I’m trying hard to write it.

Warning: grammar error

Dear Wina,

Do u think I know all of Maroon 5 member’s name?
I don’t.
Adam Levine is the only one that I ever heard of :p

Do u think I know all of their song?
I don’t.
This Love, Sunday Morning, Moves Like Jagger, what else? I have no idea :p

Do u think I know all of the song sang by the Kpop singer?
I actually don’t.
Most of the time I just do the humming + screaming + photographing at the concert, hehee.. And I usually come alone to these concert.

But all I know is how to have fun with my self. Going alone can be super boring (I felt this usually during the queue) coz u got no one to share your story at the moment. But why should I let the boredoms & loneliness destroy my happiness? I am responsible for the happiness of myself πŸ˜€
So I am glad that u are brave enough to conquer ur ‘dependable to other people’ habit.

As I can see that u are transforming yourselves into a better Wina.
You start wearing ‘non-black’ color clothes. I’m pretty shock to see u wearing purple clothes & glasses (if I didn’t see it wrong). Wow, is this really Wina who loves to wear black anywhere in any occassion? :p
And then u have a ladylike shoes, THAT IS WONDERFUL!!
And the most important, u laugh often..that is so sweet πŸ™‚

I believe that you are changing not because of me, but because you want to change and be a better Wina.
You don’t know how much I love the new you.. The merrier & brighter Wina :p

I love you Gapuakkkk!! -xoxo-

Farewell

Our friends RK is going to move to Makassar next Wednesday. Kinda sad that she is leaving. Today she told me ‘I trust my boyfriend to you, no one can ride with him but you’ *LOL* my oh my, she’s so cute =))
We’ve known each other through his boyfriend who came to Jakarta few years earlier than her. I get to know her more since our trip to Anyer beach and we became good friends ever since πŸ™‚
