I'm back.

After taking some time to sort myself out I've wondered what a tremendous half a year it has been. I've experienced love, loss and even recklessness. Rather than thinking I've changed, I would say that I have discovered a different perception of this space we call our world. The loss of one person brought forward a different connection with another. A pain followed by a joy. What is this feeling of bitterness mixed with happiness. Is this what they call love or is it just merely a fantasy. Even if we share the same sky are we able to feel our heartbeats in sync can we fathom what we both fear and work beyond our idealistic differences. I really don't know.

With certainty I can say I'm back.


Inspired or Confused?

Is this feeling inspiration, admiration or simply a confused cry of denial. - CC

Sydney Australia: Luna Park + XIA(Sydney Concert)

XIA Junsu, a member from the Korean Pop Group JYJ held his first ever concert in Sydney, Australia on the 28th September as part of his INCREDIBLE World Tour. And boy was it amazing. It was held in a concert venue at Luna Park a petite amusement park located in the heart of Sydney. Over 3000 fans attended, and it was truly a magical experience. 

What more can a girl ask for on a dreamy hot summers day. A beautiful seaside view. And most importantly a cute boy who could work his honey like vocals. 

XIA performed and worked the audience, creating an energetic and addictive atmosphere while performing his popular songs from his two albums. He mesmerised with his synchronised and structured choreography and combination of both pop and ballad tracks. What made the experience magical was that during a slow ballad, the whole audience went quiet listening intently, it was so quiet that you could literally hear a pin drop in that packed audience hall. 

It was truly magical. 

PS. for those who haven't been to Luna Park I recommend it, although it does not feature particularly thrilling rides or special shows, the view of Sydney Harbour is beautiful. And did i mention that it is free entry. You can stay for the whole day without spending a cent for all they care.

Australia: Sydney's Bipolar weather

For all those who have lived in Australia for an extended period of time, I'm sure you've experienced Sydney's bipolar weather. The cycle usually goes like this , within the course of one hour. One minute it's sunshine and rainbows. THE NEXT pouring torrential rain. Another minute passes and we have a slight drizzle. The sky lights up and the clouds part. THEN COMES THE SUN-SHOWER.
School uniforms never dry in time, those jeans i wanted to wear are still damp and all that we've gained from today's weather is a fading rainbow.
Honestly i'd rather Winter be a snowy landscape, filled with aromatic pine trees and snowmans. Like this. (check out my post about Korea's Winterwonderland)

Recommendation: Korean Drama MONSTAR

This drama is right in every way in terms of acting, filmography, plot and beautiful characterisation. It strives beyond the cliche teenage angst, by drawing upon the mystery and secrets of each teenage kid who learns to fall and getback up through music and friendship. It's both cutesy and light with a good balance between humour and the darker realties of finding our step and place in the world.

It's definitely a worthy piece to watch even if it just to soak up the warm and fuzzy goodness of a heartwarming non cliche plot.

Interesting Things About Korea: Kimchi

Kimchi. It's so famous that it has it's own museum in Korea. It's status in Korean cuisine has been elevated to be the representative food of Korea.

So. What is Kimchi?

Kimchi is a spicy pickled/ fermented cabbage that is often enjoyed as a side dish in Korean meals. There are over hundreds of varieties of kimchi that are purely based on the simple idea of pickling vegetables. Kimchi is an amazing side dish and can be made with almost anything from the more traditional Chinese cabbage to  radishes, anchovies and green onion. Kimchi is relatively easy to make, in the case that you have all the necessary ingredients. The most traditional type of kimchi is made from a blend of salt, garlic, Chinese cabbages, vinegar, pepper paste, fish sauce, spring onions and other spices. For a simple kimchi recipe visit

Originally Kimchi was eaten to provide a refreshing taste in the mouth after the heavy flavours of Korean cuisine.
