SEOUL June 2011 - Day 2 (N Seoul Tower)

When you grow older, do you think back about the days when you were in still in school? Yesterday, my friend and I went to get a exercise book for her theory practice. She recently took up a piano class, and had to do theory exercises as well. While in the bookstore, we stumbled across the music score books section. Amidst flipping through one, I sort of recalled the torturous days of piano lessons, how agonizing it was to wait for that 1 hr to end. But a panic also started to rise when I realised I had forgotten how to read some of the notes. Most of them actually. T-T And so I felt a melancholic regret for my childhood wasted away at piano lessons, only to find that in the end I still need to learn it all over again. T-T
Breakfast at Dunkin Donuts! The breakfast muffin was really nice!

Pretty store front in Hongdae. The area is full of beautiful nooks like this.

I got a pair of sandals from here. :)

A walk towards the foot of Namsan Hill.

Did I say I LOVE Seoul? 

Store along the way up Namsan Hill.

Shrine or guesthouse... Not too sure as we did not go in.

Even Korean grounds look much nicer than local ones... XD

Beautiful blooms!

Tooks LOADS of photos of these flowers. XD

Handmade Purchases from Etsy

After 2 years of abstaining from kawaii and all things handmade, I managed to convince myself that I was in need of some recuperative shopping therapy. It's almost like a rebound syndrome. I bought 4 items at one go! But well, I deserve them. :D

Beautiful handmade bag by buluchu. The colours are AWESOME!

The very kawaii metal frame snap purse, made with Japanese cotton fabric, handmade by octopurse!

I totally dig it!

The kawaii purse is too precious! I'm afraid of using it for fear of wearing out the fabric. @.@ The 3rd purchase is a fabric zipper pouch, which I forgot to take a photo of. And the final purchase is a backpack, something I actually need because the one I have now is literally peeling.

Well, it looks like I'm slowly getting back to blogging again, albeit shorter posts. Hope that this will keep up. :)

Some other things for the shop

The Kawaii Medallions! You deserve to have one of these if you're a steadfast kawaii-lover! XD Find them here.

Cutesy Kawaii Woodland pin brooches. These were made some time ago, but they're in the shop now.
Updated the shop with two listings of handmade felt brooches. :) Do take a look here. In the meantime, I'm in an excited pre-holiday mode! I'm heading down under this June! I'll be visiting Finders Keepers in Sydney! WOOTS! This got me so excited that I haven't been thinking about anything else since 2 weeks ago. XD
Been researching on where to eat, the attraction places and such in Sydney and Melbourne. *yes, TWO birds killed with a stone!*
