just to prove you that the spring is here.

the spring is here and love is all around. the first flowers are already in bloom and the streets get prettier with every day.

meanwhile, i try to do and see as much as possible. i feel that i wasted some time here. the last fall was so difficult for me with being sick constantly for four months. if i could turn back time i'd spend it much different. i cant believe that in two days it is already april... from now on, im going to spend my time much wiser.

tomorrow i may buy myself a new lens for my digital camera. im thinking of buying a prime standard lens (nikkor 50mm/1.4). the brand new costs here about 160 euro while in finland it is over 300 euro. i have been thinking also of a zoom lens but i have never been a big fan of zoom lenses and they cost fortune. im really excited about it.

hubby most probably will go to finland soon for about 2 weeks. i will stay here on my own. when i found out i started thinking of all the things i want from finland but honestly there is nothing that id miss so much. so perhaps i'll ask just for porridge and some dried fruits as they're extremely expensive here.

okay, im off to meet some friends and eat dinner in traditional korean house. im going to have organic μˆœλ‘λΆ€ (soft tofu soup).

this week has been busy but nice. i met some friends that i haven't seen for a while. i have also discovered new places in seoul. i have been to the nicest cafe ever. i drank there raspberry tea.

today i have bought tights (just ordinary ones) and the package says (original spelling):
"You won't believe how comfortable it holds your hips up and reforms your body shape. It makes the line of logs look long and pretty. It makes your hips tightly without being seen the line of short legs."
don't you just love konglish??

this weekend we were more like a tourists than inhabitants of south korea. we went to seoul to do some sightseeing which was pretty nice as the weather was like may in finland. i still haven't been to namsan tower which is like the tourist spot number 1. maybe soon.

today is 7th month anniversary of being in korea. it feels longer but at the same time shorter. i have experienced so many things but my list of 'things to do in korea before going home' is still really long. oh i better hurry.

Today was a really sunny day. I went for a lunch with my dear friend Yeongji. We went to vegetarian buffet and she tried fake meat for the first time in her life. She didn't like it much. I'm not fond of fake meat food either.

Oh, I haven't mentioned yet that I got into University for a Master program. I'm not sure when and how I will study but it feels good to be a student again (and enjoy student benefits!).

i think that seoul's metro is kind of boring but i really liked this wall. i stared at it for quite a while. so far the most beautiful metro i have seen was in st.petersburg but unfortunately taking pictures there is forbidden. a few years ago i saw a very good hungarian movie about metro called Kontroll. it was first hungarian movie i have ever seen and i was impressed.

today's rainy day. that's good because the air smells like spring.
