Warm and Cozy

It was Saturday evening. As usual, I was a bit gloomy about being halfway through the weekend. Thanks to this pandemic, I felt like the weekends just go by at lightning speed. I miss going out, even if it was just to eat at the mall. But ‘it is what it is’. The highlight of... Continue Reading →

Cafe Day

It was finally the end of a hectic two weeks at work. I was looking forward to this specific weekend because I knew it would mean the end of stress, at least for this Saturday and Sunday. I just felt calm and yet on edge at the same time. This usually happens to me when... Continue Reading →

Valentine’s Day

“Gooood mooorrnnning Allieeeee!!” “Gooooddd moorrrrnninnngggg Jinnnnnie!!!”, I replied to Jin’s lively greeting as I entered the kitchen one cool Saturday morning.

Lazy Saturday

It was a lazy Saturday afternoon. I was stretched out on the couch, watching funny BTS videos on Instagram and laughing to myself.

It still had a slight glimmer to it, since it was early morning and the sunlight hadn’t entered... Continue Reading →

Jin and I were having a mini-feast for New Year’s Eve. It was supposed to be just the four of us – Jin, our two puppies - Benjamin and Whiskey - and me. But a surprise phone call from our friends ended up with us inviting them over to join us for our feast. It... Continue Reading →

Level Up

I was expecting him to break up with me, but it still hurt. I thought it would happen sometime later, not so soon. “See, I told you, people leave”, I thought to myself, as I sat in the tent, completely void of any feeling. Within a couple of minutes, he came back inside with ramen... Continue Reading →

Fight Or Flight

I had just logged out from work and shut down my laptop. It was still a work from home situation, but one I had not expected. Several months ago, I had come to South Korea for a holiday. It was supposed to be a two-week vacation. The plan - spend a week at Lake 192... Continue Reading →
