January pass by so quickly and it’s already close to the middle of February now. Time really flies when you are busy with work and life. I kind of miss those school days where I can look forward to holidays. Or when travel is a thing, I can count down to my next vacation.
I actually miss Seoul quite a bit. I miss walking on the streets of Seoul, shopping in Seoul and having authentic Korean food. Even though I didn’t travel to Seoul, I still manage to order a bag from Seoul, specifically Apgujeong. I got myself a Love bag from this brand called Gu_de. It’s a contemporary brand by a Korean designer which looks like a dumpling bag but more classy. Well, I’m not able to score myself a Hermes mini lindy so I guess Gu_de Love bag is a good alternative. Unfortunately, the web site states 23cm wide but it is actually 16cm wide in real life. Technically speaking, it is 23cm if you compare from 1 end of the flap to the other but you really cannot put anything more than 16cm wide. Oh well, there goes my plan to squeeze my umbrella in the bag. Oh well.
The Hazelnut Brown colour Love bag was released on 27 January and I placed the order and it came on 29 January. The speed of DHL indeed. Nevertheless, I still love the bag and it is going to accompany me to many places in future.

Today’s my last day of my 3-day off days. I took 3 day leave from work as I was feeling burnout but now I feel like a kid, dreading when the “school” reopens. Haha. Back to work tomorrow and hope things go well.
It’s important to take breaks sometimes to prevent burnout after all.
I cleared 1.5 courses for my GCP Security certificate preparation. Still got 3.5 courses more to go.
I also finished the “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?” korean drama too and had a haircut at Walking on Sunshine. Don’t think I will be going back to Walking on Sunshine for haircut next time. I miss my usual hairstylist, Mikhaela. She went back to Korea and relocated to Australia in 2019 after her marriage. Oh well. She’s the only hairstylist who knows exactly what I want for my hairstyle. I haven’t found a hairstylist as good as her so far. Elin from Zinc Korean Hair Salon is the closest to her standards. I think I will just stick to Elin next time. Although it’s a bit expensive to keep going to Zinc Korean Hair Salon… Oh well…
Nevertheless, I’m loving my new haircut even though it is not the usual style that I prefer. Well, there were some miscommunication with the hairstylist and I. Oh well.
I also went to try Eggslut with my boyfriend and the egg burger he ordered is better than my bacon burger.
I’m looking forward to my next break in December. Time to start counting down!
