Bye Summer, Hello Fall.

Bye summer'12. Best summer ever and I'm really sad that it's over.

It's the start of Fall tomorrow. May I survive well in Fall and pull up my CGPA.

it's a little after 3am and I'm still up. Need to get rid of this bad habit before school starts. Like in.. 5 days' time.

So many things have happened and I haven had the time to stop and think through every single detail. 
So many what ifs running through my mind. 
What if I'm not ready?
What if it's still there?
What if I don't know what I want, exactly?
What if it isnt real?
What if there's lingering feelings?
What if A is the next person I'm gonna disappoint?
What if, deep down, we both know what we want, but we just cannot get it?

School is starting and judging by the course syllabuses, it's not gonna be easy. 

Oh well. Enjoy holidays while I can.

Here's to us
Here's to love
All the times
That we messed up

Bukhansan

Every entry I'll say that it's the best summer ever. I cant put it into words how appreciative, how thankful, to be able to spend summer in Korea, and how much I am loving every single moment now.

Hiked Bukhansan today with Aaron and it was unbelievable. YAY I CLIMBED A MOUNTAIN IN KOREA!



Before we start our official climb, look how happy we were! (not knowing what's ahead of us)



and we started on a wrong route. It was a literal vertical climb up all these rocks. How did we know it was wrong? After about 30 minutes of climbing all these rocks, we reached the end where we saw this barricade, and we were actually inside the barricaded area! LOLOL.

Met this really nice Korean couple whom we asked for directions, and eventually we kinda hiked along. They joked that we are their Singaporean kids while they were our Korean parents. They were so nice! They waited for us while we lagged behind, and we had a picnic together. Korean pancake and rice wine.

My shoe wasnt suitable for the climb so I always slide when I'm on grainy surface and the uncle was really nice enough to wait for me and hold my hands while we walked down. They were also nice enough to help us take photos and to take with us!



Obong Peak behind us!

Aaron's really nice to help me out and stuff (especially when I fell) HAHAHA. Even though I could cause him to fall as well, he still helped me nonetheless. He carried our 1.5litre water all the way! And we barely know each other. (Y)



view from the top! It's really gorgeous and the photos does not justify its beauty.

Hiked back down and we came to this stream. It felt like our ECP.



Way to go, Koreans. Awesome. Met this random guy and the couple and him just started talking and exchanged numbers, he gave us sweet corn and made iced coffee. LIKE HOW THE HECK DID HE GET ICE?

Had a couple of drinks from the spring water and it was so cooling!



Aftermath. CUI LOOK.

Overall, a great experience. YAY HIKING ACHIEVED!
