For a while I've been considering writing about specific places in Hwamyeong-dong - the neighbourhood in Buk-gu in which I live. I wasn't entirely sure if anyone would be interested because Hwamyeong is really far out of the way. That said, I've noticed that there are a number of new spots opening up (mostly because I can't help but stop when I see an iced Americano being advertised for the equivalent of a loonie [that's a buck for you non-Canadians]).
Britney said it best: "You want a hot body?...You better work, b*tch". I had gained about 30 stubborn pounds in Toronto over the course of my 3 years since leaving Vancouver. I had a trainer, I would diet, but nothing seemed to work. I've kind of come to the conclusion that I'm getting into those twilight years of my twenties where rather than losing weight I'm just working out to avoid the inevitable gain my body so desperately wants to waddle into.
