I have blogged about the accidental beginnings of my being a veranda farmer through my potato patch. It was followed by the very encouraging growth of my radishes. The tiny veranda had given so much life to these organic plants and to my amazement, an okra plant also grew out of those precious soil. The… Read More

Life is too short to be unhappy. I strongly believe that we all need to make the most of what we have. When it comes down to it, you are in control of your emotions. If you want to lead a miserable life, that is your decision, but it’s not the only way. I always… Read More

I live in the World Cup Park Apartments, very near to Haneul Park, one of the must-go-to places during Autumn. I have always wanted to go up there to take pictures but strangely, the nearer we are the harder it seems to have the time to go to a place that others would schedule in advance.… Read More

My home country, the Philippines, is a tropical country. We don’t see the earth change its hues. We witness the magnificent sea shores and delight in every summer’s warmth. We feel like cuddling not because of winter’s chill. Instead, the raindrops give us enough reason to bundle up. I love it and take comfort in the steadiness… Read More

I am not a food critic. I don’t even know which resto best serves which dish. That being said, let’s just trust the mighty food gods who say that Chuncheon and the neighboring Gapyeong serve the best “dak galbi” here in Korea. And so, before leaving for Seoul during our recent visit to Nami Island, my family… Read More

Today, October 4, 2015, is the 6th Expat’s Day here in Seoul.     We went to church earlier than we usually do and arrived at the grounds of the World Cup Stadium before 11:30am. Contrary to all its hype, the event wasn’t that well-attended. My kids did enjoy the bouncy slide and the free… Read More

I never thought I will be able to discover my green thumb in this metropolitan city of Seoul! I had grown potatoes in my veranda… and more! Upon seeing my growing potato patch, a very good friend thought I would be interested to grow other crops. So, he brought me seedlings for radishes and okra! I… Read More
