Summer ghosts

I was watching tv with hubby then i suddenly left him. It's summer and some programs on tv are scary. I got scared on the program where they were talking about ghosts. Their experiences, songs and movies that have watched. It scared me more when they showed scary pictures on tv.

I don't like watching a scary movie, drama, or any programs related to ghosts and some scary stuffs. I also don't like watching bloody movies. It always reminds me the scene that i saw and even sometimes appears in my dream.

Do you believe in ghosts? Well, i don't but i already saw three times. Some said that it was just my dream but i believe on what i have seen. Those were real.

Oooppsss... I have to finish it now. It's already past 12 midnight and i'm scared because i'm alone here in this room. My hubby is sleeping now.

By the way, why am i telling about the ghosts? In Korea when its summer they usually show some scary programs. They said when you are scared, you will suddenly feel cold. Hmmmm...i think so!

The cloud, the mountain, and the field

We went to Boseong. We had Megitang on our way to the famous attraction in Korea, the Boseong Green Tea Plantation. Because i've already been there and took some pictures of the plantation, so here's what i've got to share.

It is the view from the restaurant going to the plantation. I think the picture is nice but hubby didn't like it. For him, this kind of view is not special anymore because he has seen a lot of scene like this in Korea. Oh well, whatever his opinion is, i still like this picture so i'm sharing it to you. How about you? What do you think of it?

Was I really sick?

Last month we went to Vietnam and Australia because my boss gave me a month vacation. My boss told the students that i was very sick and couldn't work for a month.

When i came back to work, my students looked surprised and worried when they saw me. Everyone asked if i was ok. Some of them asked which hospital i went to and who took care of me. Nobody knows in the class that i'm married and nobody asked me about that. Maybe because i look young (ngeeek...). The next day, some students gave me some presents. Here are the ones that i love the most.

The made lots of origami (paper folding) and gave them to me. They said they made them when i was sick. One student gave me some milk and the other one gave me a hairclip. He said his mom made that for me. I felt like crying when they presented me those things. I even couldn't accept them. I felt guilty and i told about it to my boss. He said just receive them so i did.

My co-worker also told me that there was a day that the students didn't want to study. They told her to not study in that day and just write a letter for me. Ooohhh...they are so sweet!

A small park

Good morning peeps! I just wanna share you this pictures that i've taken when we went to the park. It was out of our plan to go to this park. We even didn't know that there is a park here. But because we were with our dog so we had to go out of the car and take her a walk.

It is a small park but there were people specially hajumas (women) and ajassis (men) with their kids.

Hubby and I sometimes go out for a drive without any plan on where to go. Just when we are tired of lying down and watching tv, we go out to take a walk or for a drive. We used to go out for a picnic during the weekends with a map on our hands and some snacks but now a days we prefer to stay home maybe because we had nowhere to go. There are still many places that we couldn't visit. Temples, beaches, islands, mountains, they are all the same. Once you see one, it seems like you already saw them all. We want to go to some places but we have to stay there for 2-3 days so we have to make our schedule for that.

facial beauty for you and me

Time flies. Whether we like it or not, we are getting older. I just had a talk to my co-worker this afternoon about her skin. She said, because she's already on her 30th years so her skin changed a lot. It's really hard to accept that we are getting old and our skin and body shape changed, too. But we are still lucky, at least there are still beauty products like Dermalogica, a skin care system researched and developed by the International Dermal Institute, who's willing to help us maintain our beauty even when we are old.
