Hello again peeps, it’s been a while.
Not going to dive in too deep but a lot has happened, so currently trying to make things right in terms of my future here in Korea. However this involves a lot of exams, so studying hard for it currently. Yay….me love studying clearly.
During this time I haven’t forgotten about this blog either. Rather I am trying to think of a new direction for this blog. I have many ideas but I will have to see how this unravels first.
Sorry for being vague, but I really don’t say anything until things are confirmed.
ANYWHHOOOOO I am SO enjoying this monsoon and getting my socks wet everyday. Also the forecast has been so indecisive it reminds me a little bit of home in UK. Speaking of the UK I am appalled by the votes to ‘leave the EU’. There are so many sh**ty things happening in the world, so we should be united more and not be divided any further. If this continues, I actually fear what will become my country I’ve called home for over 20 years.

How have you all been? Sorry AGAIN for the silence. I visited home in London for a while to see my sister get married. I’ve never seen my sister so beautiful and I’ve never seen my family united so tightly. I was overwhelming, but more importantly I was proud to be a part of this family.
Rooftops have been my thing lately. No, not to dangle my feet off the edge like some crazy photographers these days. Somehow up there I get to see the ‘wider view’ of things. Not particularly Seoul, but myself, my future, and the people around me. I find it so therapeutic and can stand there for hours.
This particular rooftop was above a plastic surgery clinic…and boy was I shocked to see people in bandages walking in at the elevator.

How’s it going? Can you believe my last post on Korea was back in August? Woopsie. I really do suck at this blogging thing. On the bright side, I stocked up a tonne of photos in my archives which are ready to be uploaded and spammed on this page.
Actually there was a reason I took a small hiatus on taking pics of Korea. In fact I was practising…trying out new styles of photography and colors so I could grow. Whether I have succeeded or failed well, time will tell. I can’t really say I’ve made an outstanding ‘breakthrough’ but I believe with more practice and some new equipment I can finally evolve.
Oh also has anyone seen the drama Reply 1988? It’s the talk of the town apparently…I have seen the first series a few years ago and the feeling is the same I get when I visited to the Suncheon drama film set. You get to rent out retro uniforms and wander around the vintage town of Korea. This was before my time…but even though I had a small glimpse of what it was like back then…I got a feeling retro-Korea must’ve been a WILD period of time. All my seniors said so anyway…
Anyhoo— not gonna write for too long this time round. Hope you all had a great new year!
Let’s see what 2016 shall bring for this blog shall we?

The dynamic Indonesian experience was brought to a finale in Bali where the crew experienced their last moments appreciating the stunning yet raw beauty of the Balinese landscape and beaches. To be honest, before this experience the only thing I knew about Indonesia was Bali, my Indonesian friend Angie and that Julia Roberts movie.
But hey…can we first talk about how dangerous those monkeys are?? Not only are they greedy and cunning and little bandits…but they can be vicious too! There was a monkey who tried to bite a bracelet off this guy and when it didn’t work he pounced at him while baring its fangs (I got this on video). Stay away from them people…
The highlight for me was where a few friends and I escaped the crowd and had our own free time at Seminyak beach. It felt like the only time where we can really kick back and appreciate our surroundings, not to mention that killer fiery sunset. Sunsets in Bali are pretty epic I must admit…
This experience have been nothing but incredible and I have met some inspiring individuals along the way. It was great to hear their stories and to see how far they have come yet remain so down to earth and passionate at the same time. I will miss you all.
