Steaks & Skates in Winnipeg

While the whole gang was eating at the table in a delicious silence enjoying our steaks, suddenly one of his coworkers Mathieu had the craziest spontaneous idea that came to him. He asked everyone around the table if we had $6 we were willing to spend. Obviously, we had absolutely no idea why he was suddenly asking such a thing, and then that’s when he proudly stated “IT’S HAPPENING, WE’RE GOING SKATING!”

Winning the Cockpit Lottery to Winnipeg

I couldn’t believe that just an hour ago, I thought I was going home for the weekend, but instead at that very moment, I was stargazing with the pilots in the cockpit. It was a truly surreal experience.

How I Earned My Wings

Life just kept throwing me curveballs. I dodged some, got hit by a few, and then got right back up to catch some and throw back. Life is never going to be what you expect it to be regardless of how you prepare yourself. The most important thing to do is to get back up. I couldn’t have possibility made it at this point in my life if it weren’t for the many experiences that shaped me today.

That Thing You Call Life, Use It

Every now and then, we forget. We play, we study, we graduate into maturity, and then we choose to settle. We tell ourselves that we’re not as fortunate as others to be able to let ourselves go and live a little because of what we have in our hands – a job, a family, etc….

2020: A New Blog

Hello 2020, It’s a brand-spankin’ new year and although I’m typically not a fan of new years resolutions, something came to me and I decided to get back in the game and explain my long hiatus. I stopped blogging sometime mid-2018 because I was in my less creative phase. I had such a strong passion…

SK2017: All good things come in boxes

In honour of its near-anniversary of an entire trip to South Korea that I surprisingly did not write a blog about, I thought it was finally fitting to write about it. Here’s the ugly truth and why I avoided blogging it: It was a two-week trip to South Korea with my travel buddy, Andy, and…

FFT: The Unspoken & Underrated Parts of Travelling that Make You Wanderlust

When people think about travelling, they consider a whole range of things in all sorts of chaotic order. The flight. The accompaniment. The restaurants. The excursions. The hotel. The price. The layover. The luggage. And the never-ending packing list.  [the difficult part]  The very moment you’ve clicked on that button that sends you your booking tickets,…

FFT: Wanderl[o/u]st

Stepping off a plane to an unfamiliar city, people rustling through the crowds and you catch a whiff of an unfamiliar scent. The chatters of a foreign language, the multilingual road signs, the kindness of strangers who greet you like neighbours. The mountains are a different kind of majestic, the food is a splatter of art on a…

[Toronto2]: Back to School & Dinner with Piggy’s

On Day 2, I woke up at 11:30am. I didn’t feel rushed to get out of bed – I was just happy to be away from daily mundane activities and other responsibilities. My only responsibility in the morning was to find a brunch restaurant. So I slowly rolled myself off the bed and sat on the…

[Toronto1]: Bobbie Sue’s Mac + Cheese

Toronto has always been a second home to me. Growing up, with families visiting from South Korea, we’d always bring them on a super touristy trip around Toronto and to visit the Niagara Falls. As the years went by, Toronto became a familiar city and we’d go mainly for food and shopping. Food: Mainly Korean….

Build me a city of love, Gustave.

Paris Day 2 was basically our last day in Paris. Because Day 3 was just our flight back home. Or at least mine. Cause Andy went back to Malaga since he still had two weeks left of his business trip. Our plans for the day consisted of LESS SIGHTSEEING. Arc de Triomphe & Eiffel Tower The day just…

Paris, la cité d’amour

Finally. A blog about Paris. About love. And about my love for Paris. ❤ City of Paris Ever since I had a thing for the arts, I had always dreamed of visiting Paris. Paris was always a place where I wanted to go. All the stuff you see on the TV and hear what people…
