Haven’t had internet at home over the weekend so here is my warmest and best Christmas wishes to you all!!!
I hope you spent it with friends and family…
I hope you slept in a little…
I hope you spent it eating amazing food…
I hope you spent a little time to reflect by yourself…
I hope you spent it warm and filled with laughter!
And I hope it had a tough of randomness
Introducing my fave cafe in Korea. (so far)
It’s called Aa cafe and I’ve been visiting every year. I go there to drink their americano and listen to my music, reflect and write in my moleskin. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy doing this. It’s so great to write down my thoughts BY HAND!
I love the interior of this cafe in all it’s industrial glory. Just like the website describes, all the pieces in the space tells a story. The pieces were also collected by the owner from all over the world…including the tiles. Compared to most cafe’s in Seoul this one is massive! Maybe that’s also why I love it so much. Seoul is always so crowded so it’s nice to go somewhere with more breathing room. My fave spot in the cafe is the mezzanine level that overlooks the main cafe area with old vintage theater seats. There’s outlets placed conveniently on the table top for your laptop too!
Definitely hit this spot if you visit Seoul.
How amazing would it be to transform this whole space into my home. One can dream.
this space somehow makes me think of a train station. i don’t know why. Would be cool to have a wedding ceremony here.
my favorite spot!
someone’s left a mark. a bit of new history left on an older one. kind of a jerk whoever vandalized this chair but makes for a fun photograph…actually…if that says tae-yang then that’s pretty cool cause he’s famous.
the way to the washroom
i thought this was pretty cool. a poster featuring the guru’s of modern furniture and architure. (at least some of them)
As I sit here at an amazing cafe and listen to Beyonce (love her!) on my iPhone I reflect……
Once again it seems I am spending my birthday away from home. (home being toronto)
Last year I celebrated my birthday in Mali (you can read about it here and here) and it was fantastic because I was doing one of my favorite things which is seeing and experiencing new things. This year I’m spending it in the motherland with my parents and my tofu. It’s been a fantastic year and I want to thank all of you for contributing to that. A big thank you to everyone who has supported me in small and big ways…to everyone who appreciates my work, to those who recommend me…to everyone how patiently listened to my fears and also listened to my boasts! I wouldn’t be here without all of your support.
