i hate tallying money everynight. it doesn’t tally! now i’m short of $5 i don’t know why ): i seem to be losing money all the time! and my money’s flying away so fast i don’t even know where it all goes. TIME TO EAT KIMBAP EVERYDAY THIS WEEK! budget budget budget! >:(
reading all my friends’ facebook status about week 13 in smu makes me so thankful to be on a break for once, away from smu. now that i think about it, i have no idea how i survived 5 semesters of smu without turning the least bit crazy. i’m quite proud to say i have never really conformed to become the typical smu student. i can count with one hand the number of times i’ve actually studied in the school library. i have never stayed in school overnight before. i have never started studying more than 2 weeks before my exams. i have never actually used up my gsr hours. haha and for most of my recess weeks, i have managed to stay AWAY from school :D but then again, i have never scored an A+ and i’m fine with that. never been a TA, never been on the dean’s list. but i’m still happy. i spend most of my time out of school, away from projects and work (at least i’m convinced i do), SO I’M HAPPY. but the point is this is, 1.i couldn’t have done it without God’s grace and 2. university in korea is SO MUCH MORE SLACK i feel like i’m on holiday.
the weekends flew by again. finally went to hello kitty cafe on friday (: very pretty and pink and my new favourite beverage is green tea latte! i know bahn hates kitty haha but i kinda liked the cafe! and the bread with yogurt was soo awesome!! shall go back again one day, with a girl.
headed over to school for the yonsei-korea uni cheering competition thing. it was damn crowded like a concert setting; one side blue, one side red. actually the atmosphere was quite high and everyone (especially the koreans) were going crazy cheering. too bad i didn’t understand korean if not i’d have joined in the fun too :D left after an hour for dance and okay here’s the point: harie is going to perform for akaraka which is like a music festival where famous kpop bands come and perform. we’re all given a chance to perform for harie IF we pass the auditions. but only 2 new members (at most) will get to perform ): and if we get to perform, we get backstage passes and we can see all the stars! and take photos with them haha. i want to perform!! but then, i won’t get it. so oh well. had dinner at the same awesome chinese restaurant again with jiahui sherlene jz and brandon again. i love the gan pong ki chicken!! haha.
saturday was spent at gapyung – nami island and petite france (: two awesome places. nami is the really small pretty island where winter sonata was filmed. the straight rows of trees are the best! we had a nice picnic lunch as well, walked around and then we cycled around. took lots and lots of photos. we’re most probably going back in late spring/summer. I WANT TO TAKE THE NAMI ZIP THING ACROSS TO THE ISLAND! but there will be quite alot of flies in the summer i think. petite france was completely unplanned for and it was like a quaint little ‘french’ like town. beethoven virus was filmed there! and i bought some le petite prince souvenirs! DAMN CHEAP (: dinner at myeongdong and i bought a shirt. HAHA.
had homecooked pasta and potato/egg salad on sunday (: woke up lateeee. finally satisfied my food cravings and i was so satisfied with my potato/egg salad!! headed over to 63 building and realised it was too crowded and we had not much time so we left and went over to times sqaure again. discovered a huge homeplus quite near our place as well :D I LIKE TIMES SQUARE ALOT! church after that and there was alot of food after the service. sandwiches, pizza and a birthday cake (y). i should seriously control the amount of cake i eat! we had BBQ buffet dinner after that. haha it was so good and i ate ALOT. alot of meat and mushrooms and meat and rice and meat and meat and meat and octopus!! :))) and drank abit of soju too. supermarket shopping after that at homeplus and we cabbed home!
TODAY! another start of the week. it was a lazy day until after school. we went back to the 63 building and went to the main attractions – sky art gallery, wax museum and the sea world aquarium. spent over an hour in the sky art gallery cos we waited for sunset there (: the view was pretty! after that had a really cheapo dinner (like cup noodles and the triangle thing from family mart) and then to the wax museum and sea world.
WORTH IT :)
just had fruit salad made up of apples, oranges and kiwi :) GOING TO SLEEP NOW!
