a whirlwind of 2 wks

i apologize for a bit of emptiness here.. sometimes it takes me a while to get back to the rhythm.. :)

so for that, here's a photo from the very last class in LCB..^^

this suits the occasion just perfectly! happy halloween!


Kyungbook palace

we had a visitor from home so we of course headed to kyungbook palace.. although its sad how little physical history we really have compared to other countries.. but i was thrilled how beautiful the palace was compared to the other times ive been there. the weather was perfect, not too warm/chilly.. and there were tourists and school children everywhere.. it was a good atmosphere despite being a little more crowded than usual.

we got a little closer to the big pond to look for any fish inside... but as soon as one showed up, others came as if we were going to throw them food.. ^^

so serene..

if you walk behind the pond, there is a garden area.. and a persimmon tree!! :)

we didnt go too far back bc the boys were getting tired of walking.. id have to go again to see more~~ i would love to have a garden as close as this palace one day..^^



(sitting on my lap!)

basic pastry le cordon bleu graduate here!! :D

there were some days when i didnt think it was possible for me to make it through the day.. but this experience i would not trade it for the world! i have proven myself that anything you put my mind in, you can do it do it! :) if i can do it, u too can go for what your heart desires! :P


treat for myself...

.. a box full of mini baby macarons!!! all for myself!!! :D

i picked these up in shisegae department store~~ you know, i was just browsing around.. but i just cannot get away without buying one sweet thing from there.. that very heavenly area of pastry & desserts... ;)

oh~ and the pleasure of buying the very last box even made the purchase so much sweeter!!


foret noire (black forest cake)

these were from few weeks ago.. however, i can't get over how yummy they were!

i will have to make these soon.. i keep telling myself that..but the problem is this! where can i get those cherries?!!

everything in school was provided and abundant, so i never realize how scarce baking ingredients are here.. ive seen the red ones, but not the dark ones... one thing about baking in korea is that getting the ingredients is like going treasure hunting... ^^..

kaldi coffee house (Hongdae)

kaldi coffee house in hongdae roast their coffee over charcoal..

this "special" coffee of the month/day/week (i dont know) was unique! it tasted like chocolate.. dark chocolate.. very dark and deep..

iced coffee also tasted like chocolate? whisker says^^

last bingsoo for the year...

("milk bingsoo" from shinsegae dept store in myungdong)

it was a really tasty one~~

the temperature has dropped quite drastically.. im a little nervous bc i hope it stays "fall" for a little while..^^ winter is a bit too long here..


Namsan Park - wkend workout

did some real exercising for the first time in forever.. we climbed/walked/ran to namsan tower.

a nice walk way and perfect weather!

view from half way up the mt.

we did the loopy loop walk way where many tourists were walking.. it was nice to see families out together.. was such a perfect day!

so i promised myself to keep this up! i forgot how good it feels to exercise!
