  • When better time of year to sit and read a book than in winter with a cup of tea in one hand, a book in the other, next to a log fire and with mince pies within grabbing distance 🥧
.
There were a lot of libraries in Seoul. I’m not sure if they were there for decor or for actual reading but I was impressed regardless. Strangely, all these books are in English, where is an South Korea they have their own alphabet which is nothing like English (although the alphabet isn’t even English is it? I believe it’s Latin which derived from Greek many moons ago).
.
Did you know reading can help prevent Alzheimer’s Disease? It keeps the mind active, keeping your memory and thinking skills intact. Whilst it’s great to donate books to libraries, donate some to old people’s homes! Encouraging the elderly to read is not only great for their brains but also their hearts! There are many old people who suffer from chronic loneliness, especially at this time of year. What better to keep them company than a couple of brilliant books. Not only does it keep them occupied but it activates the imagination, it gives them characters to fully immerse in for the duration of their reading time. I can’t be the only one who has also felt like I’m friends with a character I’m reading about? Or maybe i am and I’m just a bit crazy?
.
My favourite character is Becky Bloomwood from the Shopaholic books. That’s probably because I pretty much AM Becky Bloomwood... except I didn’t work in finance, I never moved to New York and I don’t work on morning TV.

조용하고 한적했던 곳,
북한산 아래 은평 한옥마을 ⛰
아침 새소리 들으며 산책하면 너무 좋을 것 같다 😶

  • Snow wasn't in the forecast in the last few days so imagine our delight when we woke up this morning and saw that flurries were expected throughout the day. Even the -5°C temps couldn't stop us from heading out and experiencing our first ever snow fall.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Head to http://smalltowngirlsmidnighttrains.com/instagram (or click on the link in the @smalltowngirlsmidnighttrains bio) to see where to experience snow even if it's still early December in South Korea.

  • Udah pada makan belum?? Udah kenyang? Nahhh ini dia short vlog Nona pas di Nami Island, Gyeonggi-do. Klo ke Nami, kalian wajib cobain yg namanya Dakgalbi atau ayam pedas khas Korea. Mostly, restoran yg ada di Nami ini Muslim Friendly yah. Ada label resmi di depan pintu masuknya. Perorang sebenernya lumayan menguras kantong, 12.500 won atau sekitar 150rb rupiah tapi worth to try yaaa. Isinya udah ada ayam, tteok, ubi, kol dan sayur lainnya. Kenyang~~~~
.
Btw, klo disuruh pilih, lebih suka masakan Korea apa Jepang sih kalian? Jangan jawab masakan Indonesia yah, itu Nona udah tau🤣
.
Oh iya guys, sebenernya kalian excited gak sih klo Nona ngadain giveaway??

  • Seoul trip tips 🇰🇷
Our main transportation in Seoul was the Metro Subway. We took taxi 1-2 times a day when the kids are exhausted and usually end of our sightseeing day. ☑️ Get T-Money cards (like our TnG card) from any convenience store. It cost KRW2500. We're lucky that our Air BnB host prepared it for us. We just need to top up as we use! ☑️ Download the Subway map. Google the place you want to go. Example: Seoul Station to Gyeongbokgung palace. It will tell you which Metro line to take, which stop, and which is the nearest exit. Very easy! I have a hard copy map in handy too. Look at how much I use it in the last slide 😆 I have mastered the Seoul Subway by now haha!
☑️ When taking the taxi, have your destination name ready to. show on your phone to the taxi driver. The way we pronounce it is different. So better just show to "Ahjussi". And be friendly! Most of them don't know English but when you start with "Annyeonghaseyo Ahjussi!" they will welcome you with a smile.

  • “Even now, as broken as you may feel, you are still so strong. There’s something to be said for how you hold yourself together and keep moving, even though you feel like shattering. Don’t stop. This is your healing. It doesn’t have to be pretty, or graceful. You just have to keep going.” - Maxwell Diawuoh

  • The Democracy Park in Busan was almost empty, save for a group of students on a field trip and a couple of grandpas and grandmas (probably hanging out in the nearby park). But I knew I had to visit this not only because of the support many Korean students are showing to the situation in Hong Kong but also the echoes of the fight for demoracy (in HK) and independence (in the Philippines).
Going here was a tad bit emotional for me and even climbing up this ‘Monument to the Fallen Heroes’ was an experience itself. I keep asking myself, “Should I climb it? Can I climb it?” And the answer was, “Yes, for democracy.”
