When it comes to the 31st Dec 2013, people all around the world wishes for the upcoming new year to be a better one. They spend their last few hours of the year drinking and making merry, forgetting whatever happened that happened on the last day of the year because they had such a bad hangover, some sit themselves down and make a list of new year resolutions.
But as we step into the very last phrase of the year, the last few hours, I thought the most appropriate thing to do and will make your new year a better one is when you give thanks. Giving thanks to not only the good things that have happened, but the bad things that have happened and somewhat made you stronger, and the ability to stand here and face another new year.
Keeping a positive mindset is a good, but only when you are thankful for everything that you have, you can see that the new year need not be good for you to stay happy. Simple things like having clothes to wear, the luxury of sitting in front of a computer to read whatever I have to say, or even just by being alive is good enough to let you feel that 2014 is good, sometimes better.
For 2013, i’m thankful I strike off some of my bucket list, found a new hobby, thankful for friends who didn’t give up on me, who and what mattered in life, did a solo trip, have improved relationships with my family.
And because I know that by being thankful, I could easily conquer all the negativity I have in my life, because I have so much more than lots of people in other parts of the world, and that’s when 2014 turns into a happy 2014.
Happy 2014 everyone!
Usquare is the name of the bus terminal in Gwangju. And the buses there are under the bus company kumho. I really like the buses there though. They just look so new and comfortable. The staffs at the terminal are really nice too.
Spent about 4 days of my trip departing from this terminal and I thought I could do a website tutorial on how to use it and I think it will come in handy.

I should be showering and heading out but im still sitting here writing this. As 2013 is coming to an end, I thought it would be good to just take a look at what I’ve did this year.
This year was good to me, all thanks to the people around me, and also God. Now that I looked back, thought I wish I could do more stuffs, make my life a little spicier, I kind of like it like that though. I hope that 2014 will be a better one yet, and there are still lots of things and opportunities waiting for me to seize.
With this post, I just wanted to do a summary of my Korea solo trip, and I hope there will be more coming~! So far 2 trips confirmed for 2014, getting excited!

2014 would be another exciting adventure as I head back to Korea and Taiwan (and New Zealand hopefully). 1 thing I know would be I need to save lots of money, because the real purpose would be to shop! okay no, not really. I can’t afford to… mummy will kill me. I’m almost done for Taiwan and planning for Korea. KTO should really consider sponsoring me. Hahahahah!! There are just so many locations in Korea I would like to visit but the time constraint really… T^T every trip just makes me want to go back for more.
Lastly, thank you for reading my blog, definitely not the most informative and fun blog to read, but thank you for the support ❤
Have a happy holiday everyone!
Now tell me, where are you are heading to, or planning to head to in 2014?
Indeed, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! and while everyone is celebrating and gathering with their family, I just like to take this time to thank Jesus for being born. Afterall, He is the star for this season!
It reminded everyone of His love for us and definitely the way to give. So yes, I’ve got lots of presents this year yay! and won a ipod shuffle from the company’s lucky draw too. ahhahaha! of which I passed to my bro — share the good stuffs.
How i wish Singapore would kind of snowed too, to add to the atmosphere. But i know if it ever snows, you know the world is coming to an end. but it’s not bad, at least we have rain here.
Best gift would probably be the KBO schedule for 2014. Ha! 3 home games when i’m gna be there, can’t wait~~!
Have a great Christmas everyone! Your great chance to eat, drink and be merry!
Season of growing fatter too! Diet tomorrow, eat today! :DDD
Train is a great way to travel around in Korea. It saves time and its comfortable. However, there’s another mode of transport that lots of locals love to use and its the intercity buses. Larger cities would at least have a bus terminal, and sometimes more than 1.
It is equally easy to use, and it is comfortable as well, on top of that, most of these bus fares are cheaper, which saves you lots of transportation costs too. However, one of the annoying thing about travelling by buses is that the schedules are not as readily available as the train schedules. Which explains the follow few posts about the various bus websites and how to use them.

25. Wanting desperately to retain a sense of spontaneity and adventure, but feeling it become increasingly incompatible with the life you live and the kind of goals you have for the future. It almost feels like mourning a person, because you know there is at least some version of yourself that is no longer really […]
Reason why I thought of doing this tutorial was because I feel that this would help you in planning your trip out of Seoul (and also a source for me to refer to if I forget).
There are 4 main websites which I will be doing tutorials on, which will be made into 3 post (If not there will be a crazy load of photos).
