My Songs of November 2018

Image
It has been a year ever since I started this "My Songs Of The Month" . I started this segment (?) just because I need a platform to share some of the songs that I have always listened to but now it becomes more that that. I can perfectly recall whatever happened in my life in that particular month based on the songs that I shared. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep doing it but for now, these are my songs of November 2018. Paul Kim (폴킴) - Me After You (너를 만나) I was out of loop about Korean music because I have been busy indulging myself with endless anime this month so it was a nice surprise to know that Paul Kim released a new song when I was browsing the YouTube. What makes more happy because his new song hit the (my) right spot! So, yeay! I mean, I have always loved his voice but his songs are always kind of hit or miss with my taste. Ritsuko Okazaki - For Fruits Basket Nope, I didn't rewatch Fruits Basket but oh boy, did it bring back all th

Cheonggyecheon Stream (청계천) & Cheonggye Plaza (청계광장)

I think I went to Cheonggyecheon Stream (청계천) & Cheonggye Plaza (청계광장) twice (or maybe thrice?) when I went to South Korea 2 years ago. The first time was during the day and the second one during the night as I read Cheonggyecheon Stream offers different experiences during the day and night. #sistamak The first time I went to Cheonggyecheon Stream, I actually walked from the Cheonggye Plaza to the Dongdaemun Fashion Town and back to the Cheonggye Plaza again. That was like almost 5-6 km or 5 hour-ish walk. Tak tahulah masa tu fikir apa like hello, I'm a couch potato through and through kot, but at the end of the day, kaki memang jadi jelly habis. Tip: Bring bug spray if you intend to walk from the Cheonggye Plaza to Dongdaemun Fashion Town or Supyogyo Bridge. I thoroughly enjoyed the walk and the view of the first hour but after that I became a grumpy ass as I didn't know the end point or how long it's going to take me to finish the whole

Discover Grizzly Bear Tour: A Tour by Discover Banff Tours

Image
p.s: All the pictures in this post are of the low quality due to my phone problem T_T Earlier summer this year, I had a chance to join a tour by Discover Banff Tours called Discover Grizzly Bear Tour. I was excited about this tour as Discover Banff Tours promotes a guaranteed grizzly bear viewing. Little did I know that the grizzly bear is a refuge bear instead of a wild bear. More on that later. Places included in this tour are Takakkaw Falls, Emerald Lake, and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Unfortunately, the road to the Takakkaw Falls were still closed when I went for the tour. So, we skipped the Takakkaw Falls and went to the Emerald Lake straight. Tip: Bow Valley Parkway and roads to Takakkaw Falls, Moraine Lake and Peyto Lake are usually open around mid/late June and close around early October depending on the amount of snow that we received in the winter. So, plan accordingly if you want to see these places. As you may or may not remember, it was very cloudy when

Digital Media City (디지털미디어시티)

I'm not sure if I got the place name right but this is where the  MBC World (MBC 월드) , and few other broadcasting companies like SBS and CJ E&M located at. This place also has been featured in countless Korean dramas and variety shows. Like I mentioned before, this place might be one of the best places for celebrity spotting if you're into this kind of thing. Tak tahu shooting apa tapi rancangan dia pasal pets. Anjing di comel gila! I think there was a music show recording at the SBS building because there were long line of fangirls sitting outside the building. When I was done with my tour at the MBC, the lines were gone. Seriously, what a dedication, sitting outside waiting since I don't know when just to see their oppas. Anyway, I didn't get to see a whole lot because it was hot that day and all I wanted to do that day was to sit or walk under the shade. Unfortunately, there was no or minimal shade at the area, which is why I left after

Mountain Lakes & Waterfalls: A Tour by Brewster Sightseeing

Image
I had a chance to go to another tour last month. It was hard for me to decide which tour to go because every tour goes to at least one place that I really want to go. After debating with myself for 2 weeks, I decided to go for this tour called Mountain Lakes & Waterfalls as I really wanted to go to Emerald Lake and Takakkaw Falls. Places included in this tour are Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Spiral Tunnels, Takakkaw Falls and Emerald Lake Lodge. However, to my dismay, roads to Moraine Lake and Takakkaw Falls were closed for the season, two days before my tour due to the heavy snowfall that we received earlier that week. I contemplated to cancel this tour but after talking to one of the agents, I decided to just go for this tour. According to her, they will bring us to other places like Marble Canyon and others.  We went to Lake Louise first thing in the morning. It was my umpteenth time in Lake Louise but I found this particular visit to be more special and magical? It wa
