Attractions that I want to Experience when I visit South Korea

I wish when I have the opportunity to finally go to South Korea I can visit most of the places I’m planning to visit. But since there’s so much to do and see, a mere week stay wouldn’t suffice. Besides doing a BTS location pilgrimage of some sort and hopefully watch the BTS concert in Busan this October, these are the attractions that are quite the priority for me to visit in South Korea: ⁣

Gyeongbokgung - first, largest and main royal palaces of the Joseon dynasty. Built in 1395, it is located in northern Seoul, South Korea. I would love to wear a hanbok  the traditional and national costume of of South Korea while touring Gyeongbokgung (it's not Gyeongbokgung palace btw, because gung means palace in Korean)

Bebang Halo-Halo: Home of the 24-Karat Gold Halo-Halo & the Creamiest Halo-Halo in the Solar System!

Shaved ice desserts are popular in most Asian countries, whether it’s a summer snack, an off shoot brought about by winter in northern Asian countries or just a year-round after meal must-eat. Japan has its “kakigori,” South Korea has “bingsu,” “ais kacang” in Malaysia, “che ba mau” in Vietnam, Thailand has “namkhaeng sai,” Taiwan has “tshuah-ping,” and the Philippines has the infamous “Halo-Halo” – just to name a few. Perhaps these shaved ice desserts were made because they are refreshing, cooling, and soothing and sends your happy hormones to overdrive. 

Nobody can really pinpoint how shaved ice desserts originated in the Philippines, but some say that it was the Japanese who introduced it to the Filipinos and not the Chinese – who had settlements in the Philippines even before other countries conquered the archipelago and have their own version of a shaved ice dessert called “baobing”. As time passes, more native ingredients were added to the Filipino shaved iced thus acquiring the name “halo-halo” which means a mix of things/ingredients.

Tips and Ideas for Decorating a Bedroom in Vintage Style

Comfortable, classy, and never goes out of style – the vintage style bedroom is something most girls dream of. Since antique chic is making a comeback, more furniture brands are making pieces that mimic the classic lines of old solid-wood furniture. Check out these tips to bring a dash of vintage to your bedroom.

Embrace Dark Finishes
The first thing we tend to think about when we mention a vintage design, is old, decorative furniture made from dark solid wood. Dark finishes exude luxury, and will definitely give your bedroom a warm, vintage feel to it. Stain your hardwood floors in a deep hue, and watch it make your antique furniture pop. To add extra drama, choose any jewel-toned paint for your walls. This is particularly practical if you have a small bedroom full of dark furniture, since light-colored walls may make it seem smaller.

How to Choose the Right Brush for Your Hair

Although brushing your hair is something that you do on a daily basis, it’s highly likely you don’t pay a lot of attention to it. However, unsuitable brushing and an improper hair brush can lead to your hair being damaged. By choosing the right hair brush suited for your hair type and texture and using it the proper way, you’ll be more successful in attaining your ideal hair look. Here, you’ll find out more about what is essential in choosing the right brush for your hair.

Characteristics to consider
Keep in mind that bristles define a hair brush. Synthetic, nylon bristles can best be used for detangling thick, curly hair. Even though there are some brushes that have metal bristles, they can feel harsh both on your scalp and hair. On the other hand, wooden bristles are gentle and can function well on dry hair. If you have normal and thin hair and you want to make sure your hair isn’t damaged during brushing, try using a brush with boar bristles as they are soft and grant a silky look.

Make Online Board Games A Fun Family Activity!

When I was kid, I am one of those who enjoy both outdoor games and indoor games. Unlike the generation that followed mine, I was still able to enjoy both worlds; because nowadays especially when the pandemic happened, kids can’t play outside so most of them are stuck at home, either glued to the television or computer or their tablets.

Vivid memories come flashing back of afternoons or after school where I would just hurriedly change to my home clothes so I can meet my childhood friends just to play outside. Name it, I have played almost all known outdoor games of my generation: kick ball, heaven and earth, tag, hide and seek and others. Me and my friends also loved rollerblading along our street or biking around the neighborhood.
