현재에서 살자

I shall stop writing about my memories in Seoul for the time being, just in case I get too soak into nostalgia and become depressed. I like to live in the present and dream about the future. As for the past, I shall keep it in my heart.

I have more or less completed my 'de-koreanisation' process. It wasn't difficult because I wasn't 'koreanised' much to begin with. Korea is like my second home and there wasn't a need for me to change much to fit in. As such, I rarely felt the urge to compare and contrast Korea with Singapore.

Last nine months has been the most well documented period of my life. I have no regret because I have tried to make the best of each day. Ironically, it was past regrets which motivated me to live everyday with no regret. Life is too short to be whining about past regrets so we have to make the best out of each and everyday.

Life becomes boring if you stop trying new thing. But trying out new thing also means having to deal with a new set of problems. I have made my choice between leading a boring life free of problems and an interesting life filled with challenges. But before I can say anything about my future, I need to live each day.

나 할 수 있다. 꿈을 이룰 수 있다. 세상이 더 멋지게 할 수 있다. 과거 말고 미래 말고 현재에서만 살자.


  1. 活在當下! 這也是我的人生哲學! ^^

  2. I'm sorry to hear that you had to leave. :/

    I think you made a great choice for yourself in choosing to lead yourself thus. And I am quite envious of that opportunity taken.

    Still, I wish you well as you continue. Your experiences you shared here were quite interesting to read, and I bet tenfold more so when there in actuality.

    I would like to ask you to share any experiences you have with Korean outside of Korea. In advance, thanks! and good luck! :)

  3. @ milkway, 그래요? 그렇게 하면 더 좋죠.

    @ Galinaros, there are better blogs out there on Korea, you just have to find them.

  4. 안녕!! 나 들어왔어~

    연락을 하려고 했는데 msn에 로그인 많이 안 하나 보네 ;;
