덕수궁 DeokSuGung: Korean Royalty with a Neo-Classical Twist

Sarah's log: Day 2, Wednesday, 28 January. My friend had fallen sick so I couldn't go out with her. After a galbi soup brunch at Sinchon and a failed trip to Homilpat, I took a lonely ride towards Hongdae, but ended up with a detour to Deoksugung after seeing a post on Facebook about the palace. And WHAT JOY greeted me when I arrived at the palace gate. Deoksugung celebrates Culture Day every last Wednesday of the month, and Culture Day means free admission into the palace for the whole day until 6pm. YAY FREE ENTRY.

Studying in Korea: A Summer at Ewha Womans' University

This is the second installment of my study series. I spent my 2013 summer in Ewha Womans' University with two of my friends and also with their friends.

My semester at Ewha was definitely different from Yonsei and I'll share why.

Studying in Korea: A Summer at Yonsei University

I'm back in Singapore now so there are no more future stories to tell. So for now, I will just give recounts of my past in Korea. First, I'll cover the three universities that I have attended. Yonsei International Summer School (YISS) was my first summer school in Korea. It happened in 2012, but I thought I'd give you guys a rough preview of my life in a summer school.

IMS Log 16: BWCW - Boy Who Cried Wolf

I found out through EXO's Showtime that the Boy Who Cried Wolf setting was actually real, so I scoured the net for the location. It was convenient visit that could coincide with my friends' plans to visit Garosu-gil. AHHH ROADTRIP. <----Whut.
