Seollal

Seollal aka Korean's New Year aka Lunar New Year is around the corner and now that I'm in Korea there are MANY things I would like to do, but still, I have no plans for this year's 4 day Holiday.

1st of all, Seollas is the Lunar New Year and is one of the most celebrated Holidays in Korea -as well as Chuseok-, this year Seollal falls on January 31st of the Gregorian Calendar, this marks the beginning of a new year, unlike December 31st, this date is not a date to go our partying with your friends, it's about Paying respect to our ancestors and gather around with your family to catch up, most Koreans travel to meet their family, Hanbok is used for this day and games are played when the family is together but even if you don't have plans to celebrate this important holiday, you should be ready.

Selcas time!

Hi everyone!

I was wondering what have I been doing these past 2 weeks that I forgot to blog, well, not really forgto, but I didn't have the time to do it properly and I honestly don't know what I've been doing...I know we've been busy and had to run to busan for an almost 2 days trip but other than that, I'm not exactly sure what's going on, I have stories to tell but those will be left for a different day.

Today I will just talk about my latest hobby, this is something that now I do while I ride the bus, subway or just killing time while going from one place to the other: SELCAs, selca comes from Self-Camera aka selfies, my sister told me about this great app called CYMERA and this app can be linked to your Cyberworld account (like the Korean version of FB).

Goodbye 2013

Here we are, saying goodbye to this 2013 and I’m not sure how to feel about it, given that my Christmas was a total fail, not that I didn’t enjoy partying with 1000 people and 30 rapers but THAT wasn’t a real Christmas party, anyway, Facebook keeps asking me if I want to see my “2013 review” and NO facebook, I do not want to do it, instead, I decided to make my own end of the year review (this should be fun, right?)
