The Ocean

28 Mar

The Ocean has its silent caves,
Deep, quiet, and alone;
Though there be fury on the waves,
Beneath them there is none.

The awful spirits of the deep
Hold their communion there;
And there are those for whom we weep,
The young, the bright, the fair.

Calmly the wearied seamen rest
Beneath their own blue sea.
The ocean solitudes are blest,
For there is purity.

The earth has guilt, the earth has care,
Unquiet are its graves;
But peaceful sleep is ever there,
Beneath the dark blue waves.

‘The Ocean’ by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Story Tale Ocean View

20 Mar

Stepped into a storybook scene along the trail of #Jeju southern coastline. ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿš Sitting together & watching the waves crash, the sand blow in hypnotizing patterns, the gulls swoop in for a landing . . . . it was absolutely breath-taking and soothing

Withstand the winds of time

18 Mar

Reaching up to the sun. Twisting in the wind. A lifetime of pages turning in a neverending ages. Grasping at storms. Sunning bare arms. Shelter for man and creature and memories. Hardened with history, hiding the mysteries of time.

Reach not for the stars but for the world

5 Feb

โ€œDo not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It existsโ€ฆ it is realโ€ฆ it is possibleโ€ฆitโ€™s yours.โ€ ~ Atlas Shrugged

BHC Chicken N’ Beer

25 Jan

Checing out #BHC for their chicken ‘n beer menu! It’s quite tasty! The owner recommended this chicken – spicy sweet n’ sour. Delicious with a good fry! It was a really fun restaurant, kind of like a local pub. โค If you’re in #Seoul, give it a try!

I tried the one in Chungmuro — Take Exit 2, turn right and walk a while. It’s on the corner with a few steps leading up and the a door with stairs going down to the lower floors. You can check out their other locations too!

South Korean Mung Bean Pancakes

23 Jan

As proclaimed food appreciators, we had to test out the Korean Street food. Mung Bean and pork mung bean pancakes! Tried the pork one and it was pretty good! Kind of like a hashbrown texture? Very onion and potatoesque ๐Ÿ‘These pancakes were cooked fresh at the street stall in Namdaemun, Seoul. ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท

Have you ever tried mung bean? What’s your thoughts?!?
