Going Seoul



I am going to Seoul for countdown to 2014


My first time EVER having a countdown overseas!!

So the story went like this. I was in the office and then my colleague was kping about how expensive the air tickets to Hongkong are. I was like but of course, it's the holiday season. She tried to book SQ which cost like $800. D:

$800 for Hongkong.. please...

So I told her go check at Expedia maybe there are some offers. Then she asked me about my Korea trip like if I am still going.. I was like gosh no because the tickets were freaking expensive the last time I checked. Like around $900 for that concert period. FML.

She told me to just check again cuz who knows, there might be something. So I did.. And then it happened.


Return Ticket to Seoul in DECEMBER

Can you freaking believe this? Like I can't seriously I double checked it.

So I was like.....

I texted my friend in Korea to ask if she can get me concert tickets and within 30 min she said she has bought the tickets for me... So efficient~~~

That night I quickly booked the promo air tickets and TADA~~~~ I am going Seoul~~~ tralalala~~

And then my colleague was tempted and she has decided to go with me kekeke~ OMG it's going to be SO FUN...

But.. it's going to be winter, I freaking hate winters!!! My skin is gonna crack again!!!

BUT Anything for SJ, ANYTHING.

So now that everything is booked, it's time to celebrate!!!

And this... is what I am going for~~ SMTOWN WEEK. That said, it is actually a stretch of concerts for that whole week. From Girl's Gen to TVXQ to SJ... So I expect that week to be jam packed in Seoul with fans from all over the place...

And this post cannot end without photos of my beautiful boys. ^^ 

 Love me, Love my boys. :D

I have no idea since when... all the hokkien opera performances are coming in so close together. Like WHY?

We just did one on 23 Nov and the next is on 7 Dec and the next is on 23 Dec. Thank god I am not taking part in the 23 Dec one but I can just imagine those who are. It's too close together and it's suffocating. Practices, rehearsals take up so much time. Like 3 days a week? And then when we are not in rehearsals, we have to memorize script at home. So it's like more than 3 days a week already. And then during days when I don't memorize script or have rehearsals, I have to do photo editing for my troupe.

People may think it's selfish that I don't wanna contribute to the troupe because I don't want to do 'extra work'. But opera is just one of my hobbies. It's not my everything. It's just ONE of my millions of hobbies.

Unlike many others whom opera is their only hobby, they can spend all their free time on it.

With all these, it's almost impossible to have personal time to do things I like or spend time on other hobbies.

And this is the main reason why I am stopping after 7 Dec show. It's tiring. I am sick of memorizing script and practicing.

It's too physically and mentally draining...

I am so looking forward to my break...

but unfortunately, I still have to go Taiwan to perform in Jan. So after 7 Dec, I will still need to do this one overseas performance before I can officially wash my hands off.
