Murals – The True Hidden Gems of Sokcho, Gangwon-do (for the Art/ Instagram Enthusiast)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Travel’ post, but I just had to get this out there: VISIT SOKCHO (and the rest of Gangwon-do. NOW.)

There are many beautiful and interesting places to visit in Sokcho but these murals (on Cheongho-ro 4-gil) are bomb. It’s ridiculous how they’re not mentioned anywhere online (at least, in English sources). I don’t recall seeing them on any of the tourist brochures either. Anyway, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves but just a quick warning: lots of self-love photos ahead hehe. All pictures are taken by me, on Superheadz Chinon Harinezumi. Continue reading


NUS Module Review AY 2016-17 Semester 1 (Shit, 2017 liao)

You did not read the title wrongly; this post is half a year late lol but I thought it would be timely for CORS bidding coming up this August(?)/

Anyway, I am proud to say that this was my favourite semester in my two entire years of being in NUS. I am even more proud to say, without a doubt, that I am enjoying my study in NUS. *gasp omg she did not just say that* Hahaha but it’s true though. To enjoy studying in NUS is possible after all. 😉 And it turns out that my most enjoyable semester also became my best-scoring semester – my CAP increased by 0.15 even though I was already in my 4th semester. I think it’s easy to see a correlation here!

Anyway, modules that I took are (review will be in the following order):

LAV3201 (Viet 3),

MNO3330 (Social Entrepreneurship),

SE2217 (War in Southeast Asia),

SE3216 (Migration & Diaspora in Southeast Asia),

SSA2218/ GES1029 (Singapore Film: Performance of Identity)

Poetry & Notes

I saw in our picture – how sunlight lined those black, naked trees gold, how you smiled shyly into the camera, and how I was trying hard to pretend indifference.

I choose to remember things this way and thank you for the memories that were perhaps more beautiful with its inexorable transient. For at the second chance we had, you kept your eyes cold and words scarce. It was clear as any day in winter that we can’t go back.


Poetry & Notes

The girl who ate fish eyes //work in progress//

There was a girl who ate fish eyes. Her mother taught her how to do it. The trick is to hold a teaspoon as closely along the eye socket of a fish as possible and and fill the basin of the teaspoon entirely with fish eye. It wasn’t one of those things that you could perform in a swift movement. The removal of a whole fish eye is a rather delicate performance due to the soft meat that is attached beneath the hard membrane of an eyeball. The soft meat is the most delicious and delightful part of the entire fish. Continue reading
