Sundays and something new

It's a Sunday night and who never love Sunday nights? I absolutely love Sunday nights, oh well, Sunday as a whole! And for today, I get to go to the church. It's always a good feeling being able to hear God's word. God's word is my energizer and one of the reasons that keep me going. After attending mass, I roamed around the shops in downtown Daegu and guess what? I bought not a single item. Yes, nothing, not even a small trinket. Because I need to save a million won for a new beginning...I mean, a new place. Haha! But I do get to take some pictures.

Oh, hello winter outfits! at Zara

beanies in a variety of colors. in a Korean shop

These past weeks, I 've been longing for a Christmas atmosphere and look what I found. 
thank you Accessorize for these cute decors in your shop

such an eye-candy =)

Now speaking of  that new place, you see I've been spending eight months living here in the dormitory (gisuksa) and eating the same food every week (or two). And the food - it's either spicy or too salty or no taste at all (just let your imagination work). So yesterday, me and a friend went on to look for some new place. And after checking several goshitels (1) a quite expensive but very good one, (2) a modest one, and (3) a cheap but ugly one), we found the one that we've been looking for (well, that is number 1!). And I really, really, really love the place! It's a room good for one person, with the following: bed, cabinets, shoe cabinet, refrigerator, air-conditioner, heater, internet, study table, and toilet. Just what I really need! And there's a common kitchen, complete with all the stuff plus a free coffee, and laundry room. This afternoon, I already signed the contract. Good thing one of our lab's undergrad who just lives nearby was there; he's the one translating everything the owner was saying. Lucky, lucky! I paid part of the deposit (a whooping one million won), the rest will be paid when we transferred. So, I really need to save a lot for the rest of the deposit. And every month costs 270,000 won. It's quite expensive for me because if you're going to convert it in peso...okay, enough of the conversion thingy! But here in Korea, it's just the normal price.

So yeah, new place, new home, and hopefully a new beginning.
