|The kids could row boat faster than I ride a bicycle|
|Can't remember where was this..but yeah, that's me!|
Even the anemone's tip can be seen from the surface! You can see the local kids were walking towards the ocean to dig for sea urchin and stuff like that. I am so afraid, thinking of the dangerous sea urchins. Those kids were really born to survive the nature!
Sunsets are amazing as well. One moment, the sunlight will burst and be reflected onto the surface of the sea, creating a beautiful silky image.
While sometimes, the sky will turn to the hue of dark blue, pinky, orangy and thats the moment you feel so romantic that you wish your lover will bring you a glass of wine or mojito with some finger food. HAHAHA... It didn't happen for me. Too many people around here to enjoy the romanticity of the sunset. *embarrassed*
Lovely ain't it?
I shall stop here. MORE photos will be posted as the finale of my trip. And also a video, made by one of the Instructors that accompany us during our last dive, Yang Berhormat Cikgu Azhar. Wanna have a peek at Cikgu Azhar's videos of us? You have to stay tune for tomorrow's blog post then XD
Goodnight and See ya!
Love Love Love

okay, the truth is my Uni isn’t exactly the prettiest place to view Cherry Blossoms. Sungkyunkwan University is basically.. not such a bad sight for cherry blossoms but the best would still be Kyunghee University. which I’ve never been because their European style buildings goes really well with the pretty flowers. but really, I felt that SKKU isn’t all that bad for cherry blossoms ^^.
gotta start my post with a selca. teehee.
those yellow flowers are called “kaenari” and according to my middle aged friend, she said that it is only available in Korea.
gotta advertise my blog till the end. hahahahahahahaha.
random street in SKKU.
cherry blossoms this year was shorter than 2 years ago but it came a lot quicker. and it went away in less than 2 weeks. they were only here for less than 10 days I would say =(. the greens came out super quickly. but it differs from area to area.
it was really nice to have our school being filled with cherry blossoms. and now.. cherry blossom petals. oh wait, I think the petals (on the floor) are gone too T_T.
but this year, the cherry blossoms came in a good time because it usually arrives when everyone’s busy studying. but by being 2 weeks earlier, we still could squeeze a day or two to go cherry blossom sight seeing =D. and that was exactly what I did!
it’s funny how they grow almost everywhere on the tree branches. and how it grows on the bottom part of the husk out of nowhere too.
oh hello =D.
okay lets move on to Everland. there’s many more pictures taken in Everland but.. I’m lazy so. =S.
always visit during April because the tulips there are.. magnificent. the cherry blossoms are great too!
the everland version of Holland
you’ve probably seen this picture if you follow me on instagram. if you have not, FOLLOW ME NOW! my id: jamieliewdotcom
there are over 200 selca pictures of me there but I am too lazy to sort them out T_T. together with all the animals and stuff hahaha.
look at the mountains behind! filled with cherry blossoms!!! <3. it looked breath taking in reality but.. I didn’t bring my DSLR T_T. and I was too busy to take pictures. didn’t even bother to watermark because the quality’s so lousy xD.
just look at the mountain!!!
and more cherry blossom =D.
I picked a place to go shooting just a night before and I was contemplating if I should go to Seoul Forest, Yeouido’s Cherry Blossom Festival (been there 2 years ago but it was super crowded. definitely over-rated) and Seoul Land. decided to come here anyways because I thought the further, the better. just get off at Seoul Grand Park station on line 4 and you’ll definitely find your way ;).
and oh, going to Seoul Land for their cherry blossoms doesn’t mean you have to go into the Zoo, Rose Valley nor Seoul Land (amusement park) itself. because the pretty cherry blossoms are all outside.
so as soon as I reached, I went crazy over the cherry blossoms. I mean, upon arrival, you’d see a lot of street vendors selling the same few street food that you might want to buy as you might get hungry on the way.
the cherry blossoms here are.. super duper nice. and it was super under rated. okay, there were loads of people when I was there but it wasn’t even 50% as crowded as Yeouido and it’s 200% prettier.
I fell instantly in love.
I mean, there are cherry blossoms here and there and they were all beautiful. but no doubt that Seoul Land is one of the BEST places in Seoul for cherry blossoms.
I’m pretty goofy, as you can see. I spend all my time laughing when I can. =P.
look at that mountain of cherry blossoms!!!
there’s also a picnic ground in front of Seoul Land’s entrance (as in the entrance of the amusement park. you gotta walk pretty far in from the subway station.)
good photographer posture! =P.
I am… BABARI GAL!!! or burberry girl ????, derived (myself) from babari man, which means flasher, in Korean. hahahahahahhahahaha.
say hello to Max. he only sent me two pictures. pfft.
me trying to imitate him. phail because I wore skirt hahaha. but it’s already very brave of me! well I sat at the cliff too because Max told me to wth and some uncle yelled at me and said it was dangerous but he just walked away after saying that hahaha. can’t wait for the pictures. the weather was pretty damn cold by the way. U_U.
here’s a picture taken my Max with his gun-like camera. such a big difference with pictures I took T_T. he does wedding and portraits and almost everything else that has to do with people. so contact him if you need his services in Seoul =).
here’s my best friend in Seoul, Wai Kit.
I laughed so hard at his picture I took one myself but it ain’t as funny pfft.
I like how the cherry blossoms grew over the border. =3.
so actually this was my 2nd round ROUND this huge place. it’s like one big circle. if you keep walking, you’ll end up back at the subway station haha.
fake candid shot pfft.
just love the view here I didn’t wanna leave =S.
Casio’s Exilim’s cool “stand” which allows you to take a picture of yourself without anyone helping. the ultimate selca camera. but it does make me angry when I take pictures of food. the quality’s super bad for that pfft.
with the gaenari’s~
and finally, leaving the pretty Sakura’s T_T.
and oh, these were taken by my phone =D.
Max the crazy fella.
I have to admit, after dyeing my hair blackish, I look Japanese. everyone said so haha.
it was supposed to be dark brown but.. will make a separate post for my hair dye =).
we walked and walked and ended up here at some lake. very very beautiful lake.
the earlier picture was taken by my DSLR and this by Casio Exilim (compact). notice the differences?
must selca here too!
lens flare. only during sunset. =D.
If you are wondering how many pax we are...
There're only 2 of us !
This explain why never go and shop for food when we are hungry ;)
Can't help it. I am a virgo. My horoscope says that I am the master of criticisms. I am always judging and neat-picking on everyone, regardless whether they are the people I love or those I feel indifferent towards.
But being judgmental is bad. More often than not, our judgment does not entirely reflect the truth. Instead, they are hurtful and detrimental to the parties involved.
No matter how much you believe in what you see, there are always 2 sides to the story. It is unfair to have your conclusion made based on your one-sided tales. Open your eyes and try to understand things from various perspectives. You will realize that what you have seen or heard are exaggerated and distorted from the reality.
I have judged and been judged by others. I put up my strong ego and told myself that I couldn't care less about what others think, that I am least affected by what they say. But face it, no matter how strong you are, you still can't help but feeling slightly hurt and disappointed by those judgmental criticisms.
Sometimes they call you names. Names that would make your mother feel ashamed and cry. They label you names on social media even though it was done subtly. It was not meant for you to see, but you still discover it anyhow since you couldn't get rid of your curiosity.
Words of accusation that speared through your heart and made you doubt your worth. It could be uttered by acquaintances, strangers or family and friends of the one closest to you. Regardless who they are, their poisonous words haunt you night and day until whenever you truly let go.
No, I dare not publicly declare that I will stop judging from now on. Wouldn't want to be a hypocrite who go back against my own words later on. But I will learn to be mindful of my judgmental criticisms, not that I gave ascertained its impact.
The next time you judge, keep it to yourself or at least prevent it from reaching the ears of your innocent victim.
Or better still, focus on how to improve yourself to avoid being the preyed on by those vicious tongue! :)
