Birthdays and wishes

I am one of those people who remember birthdays without having to rely on social calendars too much. But I am also one of those people who rarely send a birthday card (and gift) in time.

Then I saw the cutest The New Yorker online cards on the beautifully-curated Paperless Post. I am such a fan of its art and humor (although I have to say that works of Ashkahn, Mr Boddingtons Studio , Felix Doolittle, Happy Menocal, and Kate Spade – just to name a few of my favourites on the site – were strong contenders).

So I wrote my friend a simple birthday message, inserted into an e-envelope holding a The New Yorker card, against a customised gold polka-dotted backdrop – all in 5 mins (excluding the time taken to actually decide which card to go with) and more importantly, in time for her birthday. I hope it perks up her morning when she sees it.

JEJU | Spring in Jeju

F1010037

Our journey to Jeju was slightly arduous, but it was all worth it, eventually.

Arriving in Jeju from Gwangju
From the Nongseong (농성) Bus Terminal, we walked about 15 min to the Nongseong Metro where we bought a ticket (1200 won) to the airport. The ride to the Airport Station is about 15 mins. From there, walk another 10 to 15 mins to reach Gwangju Airport.

My memory is fuzzy now, but according to my notes, the details of my journey to the Nongseong Metro are as such:

Go through exit 6 of Shinsaegae (신세계) department store, go in the direction of the e-mart at Geumho building. Cross the road at g25 convenience shop, continue straight for another 5 to 10 min before arriving at Nongseong Metro Station. Add time if lugging luggage.

BUSAN | Gamcheon Culture Village – Part 1

F1010029

The Gamcheon Culture Village is considered a must-visit if you ever decide on a Busan vacation. To get there, take the metro to Toseong (토성) metro station. Take bus 2 outside PNU cancer centre, or proceed to walk uphill like we did.
