muddy weekend




I had another wonderful weekend with some good friends down in Daecheon Beach for Mud Festival. I spent Saturday covered in mud and Sunday chillin' by the water.

Unlike last year, I wasn't very motivated to take pictures of muddy people. These are some of the shots of the most beautiful fireworks I've ever seen as well as some pictures of people at the beach. Although the fireworks pictures are not even close to the actual beauty, I'm sure it will help me to remember the beautiful night at the beach for a long long time.

after hours

Juni took Daniel and me to his friend's bar after work yesterday. The temperature in Seoul reached over 31 degree celsius and the humidity in the air felt like 100%. Even the short journey to the merry way to the bar felt like forever.

It took me about 10 minutes to cool down once we got to the really cute and artistic bar, Wo Ain I. We had champaign, cheese salad, and pleasant conversation on creative projects, dream, and life. The music of Ibrahim Ferrer was so relaxing and freshly roasted coffee smelled so wonderful.

It was good to hang out with co-workers once in a while and get to know each other better in different social situation.

a perfect sunday.

While Dave and I were talking on MSN this morning, we decided, on a whim more or less, to go on a day trip to get out of Seoul and take some photos.

We went to Yangpyeong and got some good shots at Dumulmeori and KOFIC Namyangju Studio. The weather, the traffic, the meal, and the company, everything worked out perfectly. It was a perfect Sunday.

cafe pot.

creative wednesday @ cafe pot

I found this super cute coffee shop near the office a while ago and decided to take my wonderful friend/ co-worker, Monika, sometime. Today was the day Monika and I planned on having our creative evening with our laptops at the coffee shop, Cafe Pot.

The projection on the white brick wall, huge wooden tables, hardwood floor, and awesome teas. I would love to own a such place someday where friends gather, share creative ideas, and chill.

creative saturday

creative saturday @ cafe byul

One Wednesday evening, Justin and I were having dinner & wine at Grande in Shinsa. Wine, candlelights, and good conversation over dinner always inspire me. By the end of the evening, we came up with this random idea of getting together every Saturday and working on something creative. We call it Creative Saturday.

The first meetup happened on Saturday last week. We took over one corner with huge glass window on the second floor at Cafe Byul(Star). Such an adorable coffee & waffle place with a "wireless", yes, wireless & free, internet connection. The first Creative Saturday project was "We Dream...". We spent a couple hours to come up with a look frame or mock-up and we're pretty happy with the result.

It's another Saturday tomorrow. We have a couple of ideas on what to do. Whatever that will be, I think spending Saturday afternoon working on something creative is the best.

rainy day

rainy day - window

The sky went dark and I started hearing heavy rain drops. For quite a while I enjoyed looking out the street through the glass window at work. Rainy days seem very photogenic to me although I tend to get lazy taking pictures when I have to carry an umbrella.

Rainy days always remind me of Vancouver, my second home. Rainy day always make me want to put some jazz on, drink some good coffee or wine. I miss my place in Vancouver.
