The last lap

We've just filed our notice of marriage with the ROM! :0 

I still cannot get over my love-hate relationship with Korea... Sometimes I use very strong words when speaking about Korea, and on good days I try to focus on happier things likes its proximity to Japan, being able to have our own car and own apartment in Korea, being able to go back to Kaohsiung easily, four seasons etc. The thought of being in a place I don't want to be and all alone scares me.

Wedding Prep

I have passed the frustrated + emotional stage now!! 

Learning to take things as it comes. 

Here's what I received from the US that made me happy: bridesmaids + maid of honor gifts for the girls!!! It's a customizable soap and lip balm gift set. You get to choose the flavor/scent you want for the soap and lip balm, name labels and wordings, wrapping paper and bag stamp design!!! I chose lavender rosemary for the soap scent and vanilla for the lip balm. Ordered this from A little pricey for the size (smaller than the size of my balm) but they're gorgeous :)

4 months to being legally married

I'm at the stage where it's too late for regrets. 

There are days I wake up and wonder if this is the right choice, the right time or the right guy. There are days I have doubts about this whole marriage and it makes me very afraid. 

Why is my wedding planning filled with stress, unease and uncertainty?

Mar 2016 update

Quick update on my life:
1. We are getting married this November. Cheers to over 3 years of long distance relationship!!!! Still strong and in love. 

2. We've found an awesome venue for the solemnization and both sides of the family will be flying over in November. 

3. What I learnt from working at Nike: Not all jobs/companies that seem glamorous are glamorous. It takes passion and love for what you do to see pass the long travelling distance and measly pay. 

These days I'm hooked on "Reply 1988" and "descendants of the sun". Usually after an episode of K-drama I can't look at my boyfriend for a while... How is it that Korean guys in tv shows look so different from those in real life??!! 

For girls fantasizing about Korean boyfriends because of K-drama: They look nothing like Soong Joongki or Park Bo Gum!!! Lol!
