The romance of autumn entices even those who have lived their entire lives in a tropical country, blessed with the abundance of beaches, clear blue skies and sunshine, but greatly deprived of the warm hues and gently falling leaves of autumn. Which is why, when my friends and I set the date for our trip to South Korea, we made sure that we would experience Seoul in all of its autumn glory. I'd had a taste of the season during my first visit there, but I still longed to experience its true allure.
Thankfully, our nearly year-long wait and meticulous planning paid off - we had an amazing five days in Seoul with the backdrop of a beautiful autumn, my very first fall.
Below are some pictures I took from the trip which captured the feel of autumn best - may they remind you of your own autumn memories.
It's a lovely Sunday afternoon, and I just came back from having lunch and watching a movie with the family. The weather was nice today so I decided to drive with the windows down and the music up on my way home from the mall. I've got a beach trip with the family over the long weekend and these two songs would be really nice to drive to on a road trip. Contemplating though if I should just ride with the folks going to Kota Keluarga - gas can be expensive! Anyway, here are two song suggestions to add to your road trip soundtracks. Enjoy whatever is left of your weekend, and make it count!

After much thought, I have finally decided to commit to redesigning this blog. It’s going to take a while, so some links might be broken and there might be an element or two that’s out of place while I tidy up the layout. This will also probably be my last post until the blog is fully-functional again. I’ve just come back from a trip with friends to Seoul, and prior to that, we watched the EPIC Big Bang concert in Manila, so I’ve been Korea-crazy these past few weeks. Some pictures below!
Watch out for Filipina in Flip Flops, reloaded, coming soon!
