I always value TIME
for me it is precious and my life depends on it.
Waiting is a waste of time
I could have done so many things in those minutes i spent in waiting
But here i am...waiting...anticipating
For an answer...for something
I hate waiting
But then, i realized i have done so many "waiting times" in my life
Waiting in line
Waiting for my name to be called
Waiting for a parking space
Waiting for the bus to arrive
Waiting at an embassy
Waiting for my future...
So then...how can i hate waiting?
Actually...it is not the waiting that i hate
But the answer that will come after waiting
Will it be yes or no
It all depends on it
Having a "yes" answer will make the long wait "worth it"
Having a "no" answer is nothing but a waste of time and effort
Worst thing is: receiving a "maybe" answer
For it would only mean....i have to wait again
But what will you call a waiting that will not have any answer...
"no answer" at all
I have been waiting....anticipating....then at the end of the day....still no answer...
So sad. But then in life, things are uncertain.
The greatest thing in waiting though...
Is it gives you hope...
of something to look forward to...
of longing for someone
of waking up to another day
So no matter how i hate "waiting"
I will still be here....
Anticipating for the moment
Whatever the answer will be

Several days have passed…still, my mind is swirling with thoughts of tulips and cherry blossoms. Of course some people might tell me that "hey we also have pretty flowers in the
Here's an account of the places i visited in Jeju. (Mostly nature parks)
This park abounds with Tulips, Roses, Cherry Blossoms (Spring Time) and almost all types of flowers. The place is like “a heaven’s garden.” I wanted to touch them but I know I could only stare, thinking that my mere hand-touch could ruin the beauty of those flowers. Now, I am having second thoughts receiving bouquets of flowers because I could imagine the pain those flowers felt when some human hands picked them up from the rich soil. I know I’m over reacting but this was what I felt when I saw those flowers. It seems that they belong nowhere else but in that garden.
I have never been inside a cave so visiting this cave gave me a thrilling excitement. Actually, like in the movies, I expected this cave to be dark, mysterious, slippery, dangerous and with BATS hovering past my head. Well…unfortunately, this cave was already made “tourist friendly”. But it’s still a very thrilling experience for me though. I saw some stalagmites and stalactites which I just often read in books or see on T.V. Inside, the pathway leading to the end of the cave was already cemented (even in your high heels you can enjoy touring the cave) so you can walk easily while looking up and down the cave. You don’t have to bring flashlights also since it is already lighted with lamps and some spotlights (for you to read the stone where the history of the cave was posted). When looking up, you will see shapes of two dragons. Well of course, you have to use your imagination because if not you might think it’s just some rock patterns inside the cave. The hardest part though is telling which of those two is a male dragon. Haha Don’t be shocked when some waters dropped on your head. It’s part of the “cave experience”. The water is a bit cold so it will also give you a “tingling” feeling. Although the cave was already “cleaned up” for the tourists, you can still feel real excitement of being inside a cave except that there are no bats.
Trivia: These caves were formed when Mt. Halla erupted sometime ago.
The normal temperature of the cave is 17 degrees.
This park is truly admirable. A Korean man spent his days sculpting several images such as old Korean village, animals (horses, pigs), man, woman and others. Later on, his hobby and collection of his sculptures located in a somewhat isolated area became a popular tourist spot. Well, you may think there’s nothing special about it because there are other talented folks who can also sculpt a human form. The difference lies on the way this man created his sculptures. He added “emotions”. Mostly, his sculptures provide a humorous appeal. I could not help but laugh and join in the fun (as if I was talking to a bunch of stone people). When you see his sculptures, you might think those people or animals were really alive when a bad witch turned them into stones. (Now my imagination is really running wild^^)
The place speaks for itself. If you want to reach the top, you must have strong legs! Make sure not to have long walks the day before or you might give up while reaching the peak. (Depends on your body resistance…I am speaking in my case ^^). But reaching the peak is all worth it…the view is wonderful. Going up…you’ll see some horses (and how beautiful they are) Too bad, I didn’t see the sunrise while I was there…instead it’s the setting of the sun that I saw. Honestly, I didn’t reach the peak. I was trapped on the souvenir shops down below. But my companion said it’s great up there.
