#singapore  is a great place to stop over for a couple of days. 
Flying to Singapore for a few days was kind of a spur of the moment plan. I was suffering from the winter blues in Korea so Jihyeon convinced me into going to Singapore, a place I've wanted to visit ever since I watched a doc...

We are crashing at Jihyeon's parents apartment all packed and ready to fly to Australia tomorrow. I just got up to get a drink of water from the kitchen. It was pitch dark in the hallway, so I tried to turn the hallway light on.... it didn't work. I pushed the button again... still not working. I then started repeatedly pressing it only to find out it isn't the hallway light switch. It is the master light switch for the whole unit and I was turning the bedroom lights on and off! Sorry everyone! The apartment must have looked like a Christmas tree from the outside. Just spent the last 5 minutes laughing hysterically with Jihyeon. 
Modern Korean apartments have all sorts of gadgets, one of which is a master switch conveniently located by the front door that can call the elevator, turn off the gas or all the lights before leaving the apartment. We ar...

Applying for an Australian partner visa is a royal pain in the ass. Australian immigration will want to know every excruciating detail about your relationship and charge you thousands of dollars in the process.  If you fi...

After spending 2 years in Korea, it was finally time to return home to Australia. I took a gamble booking some dirt cheap tickets with Asiana Airlines about 10 months ago, but luckily Jihyen's 309 partner visa came through in time with 8 days to spare ^^.

Oh cool! yeah I'm familiar with the rx100 =) and there's an Rx100-3 now i think. That's why Im a big fan of sony cams, they have great sensors! =D im using an Nex3n. It's a little bigger than a point & shoot but also packs a punch. What i like abt it is that you can flip the screen towards you for travel Selfies haha.

anyway Thanks for the details, about the dome entrance fee =)

Hope i get to see more of your travels! Cheers!

Saturday night was the AFC Asian Cup final, and as luck would have it the two teams in the final were the Australian Socceroos and the Korean Reds. Jihyeon has a friend in Daejeon who owns a Japanese pub, so we decided to drop in and visit him to watch the game.  I had a great time shouting "YEAH" every time the Koreans missed a goal :)
