It's been a week already since I arrived here. I am now back in the Philippines. The past days were really difficult because I can't help but miss South Korea. I guess it's always like that - it's hard to leave a place you considered you're home away from home.
Two years went by so fast. I can still remember the first time I set foot in that country called the Land of the Morning Calm. It was a chilly February morning and everything was indeed calm and beautiful. One of the things that amazed me, which I haven't experienced before, was the smoke-like effect when you breathe out. I was like, "I only see this in the movies!!!" I felt like a five-year old. And then there was the very comfortable four-hour bus ride going to Daegu. Hot cup of coffee in one hand and a camera on the other, snapping pictures here and there. But snapping pictures was not enough. To appreciate every single moment of it, I had to focus and look at things with my naked eye. It was priceless seeing the picturesque surroundings - the golden sun rise, the long and wide river, the snow covered fields and mountains, the bare trees. Everything was indeed beautiful. Everything seemed like a dream...
In a chilly February afternoon, I once again took that four-hour bus ride. I snapped some photos but decided to just look at the surroundings. Everything was and will always be beautiful - the bare trees, the snow covered fields and mountains, the long and wide river, the golden sun set.
'Til we meet again.
