I don’t really get the meaning of this blog. I have four blogs. harshyouth (photoblog), galbissi (personal), gabycitymusic (music) and this one. It’s kind of semi-personal and at the same time more personal for me than all the others. I won’t delete this blog but in future i won’t post party pictures i take in korea either.
At first, I wanted to run a blog like Xiaxue but I figured out, I can’t. I don’t have the time and energy for this.
What’s happening with this blog?
I don’t know yet but I’m thinking about posting my drawings, paintings, etc. on here but I’m not sure about it yet since I’m not really confident about my works.
The international art fair in Zurich is what keeps me busy this week. I randomly got a job as a korean-german translator and assistant of the art director. I got to meet amazing artists and gallery owners. Gallery Tableau is the gallery I’m working for right now. It was nice being surrounded by these people.

Lack of sleep, time for hobbies and social life. I’m glad I have a week off. The winter usually depresses me but I try to keep myself busy. I kind of lost the connection to my blogs and hope to get back into it soon.
Hello! That day was my sister’s bday. She turned 22 and I don’t remember ever throwing a party for anyone and I was very busy the last few years so I couldn’t even be there when it was her birthday. So I decided to organize her birthday.
Jenny, a friend of mine invited us to a COSMOPOLITAN Bikini Festival at Walkerhill Hotel. Her boyfriend is Bboy and had a performance on the stage so we could get in as VIP. It was so cool because there were several things you could get for free. Like there was a Bacardi corner where good-looking men gave you whatever drink you wanted. There was more like Starbucks, Clinique, Evian, ect. The line-up looked like this:
… and so on
I only got to see three because I had to leave earlier to get ready for the night at Club Answer.
-my outfit that day-
-that guy was flexing the whole time and not moving like a stone-
-and then his friend came and they took pictures of each other-
A friend who was promoter that night at club Answer was so nice to book a table for my sister.
I’m so lazy nowadays. The only I’m concerned with at the moment is school. The semester start was 3 weeks ago and it’s really realllly tiring. Basically, the subjects and tasks are not that much of a challenge, the most tiring part of the entire day is the way to there and back. I live not near my school so my daily ride with the train and bus (with 3 transfers on each way) takes 2h there and 2h back, therefore 4h a day. No, I’m not moving to an apartment near the school. Too much of a fuss. The whole school thing was the reason why I didn’t post for such a long time. I want to blog so much more.. I really have to finish my summer recap, I have to do makeup tuts for monolids, and bla. After a whole month, I think I have settled everything down. In a way, I more or less got used to it. So I have more time and motivation to post more. I thank all my followers for sticking with me and not unfollowing me.
Oh and since I have a huge phone (Galaxy Note), I decided to write posts on my way to school.
I was gone for a too long time, i guess. And that’s probably why I lost a few followers. Doesn’t matter - let’s recap the summer! But let’s do it in chapter since it’s been a very long time and I don’t have time to tell you the whole story all at once because I have to go to bed early.
Let’s start with the situation atm. My school just started this week. It’s an art and design school and I’m doing the art foundation to study Industrial Design in Seoul by next year. The school is quite far away from where I live. It generally starts at 9am but I have to get up at 6am, FML. One week has passed since I’m back in Switzerland. Seoul has been tiring, exciting and fun.
Chapter 1_Busy after arrival in Seoul
I and my sister arrived at the Incheon airport in the evening. The flight was horrible and tiring. As soon as we arrived at the flat, we took a shower and went to Sinchon to meet my friend Hyungjin and his friend Sangbin. It was fun and nice to drink Soju after a while. But we went home early because we got very tired.
It was a kind of very windy that night, I remember.
Chapter 2_KT olleh’s service is awesome!
The next day, we went to Gangnam (강남) to buy a simcard. The new service KT olleh offers, is totally awesome. Even foreigners without a visa can buy a simcard for 5000W (~4$) as long as you have a mobile phone which is compatible with the simcard. And you have to unlock your phone before bringing it to the service. My galaxy note didnt have a simlock but iPhones usually do. After paying 5000W, you can charge your phone with any amount you wish for. I started with 60’000W (~55$) and added more credit later. In one and a half month, I spent around 200$ for calls, messages and 3G. I know, it’s much but in my case it’s not. Last year I spent 1000$ in 3 months in Seoul. My sister used like 30’000W which is like 27$. Anyways, check out their service here: http://expatblog.kt.com/
