Whoever follows me since four years ago would know why Korea is so close to my heart. No no. I wasn't born in Korea. Even though I might have Korean looks because of my slanted eyes (lol), yet I am not. I am malay-chinese mix. Purely mixed. Hahaha.

My father has been working in Korea for almost 4 years. So alhamdulillah, I got the opportunity to go to Korea twice. Not as many as Pooh. (She is the youngest, of course she got extra chances than me *roll eyes *)

First time I went to Korea for a week. The second time, I lived there for a month.

I never had a dream to ever come to Korea. Honestly, Korea was not in my travelist once ago. But after traveling and getting lost in Korea. Korea is now one of my favorites place that I wish to come all over again. And whenever I miss everything about Korea, I would either throwback my gallery and look out old pictures or watch Korean drama.

There are a few things I really miss about Korea:

One. The view from my dad's apartment. It was so calming. The breeze from the seaside was so soft and soothing. I love the atmosphere around my dad's apartment, especially at night. I miss walking alone along the road while licking my Baskin Robbin ice cream.

Praying in small Mussolla. Traveling to a non-Islamic county somehow pushed me to be humble people and learn to be grateful. I had experienced praying in an open public place where I had to lay my outer coat on the floor so that I could perform sujood properly. I felt blessed. At the moment, I truly felt the responsibility of being abid and khalifah is burdened on my shoulder.

Three. Kebab and food from other countries. During my second time in Korea, I was told by my mom to cook my everyday meal by my own self, especially whenever I wanted to go out. My mom strictly told me not to easily eat food outside home unless it states the halal certification. So, when I went to Seoul, I was happy because I could easily get halal food, especially in itaewon.

Public transportation in Korea is tip top! I love traveling in Korea because when I got lost, I didn't have to worry. I can read maps and access free wifi almost everywhere. And, yeah, getting lost and wandering here and there is so like me.

Five. Coffee and cafe. The last thing I miss about Korea is its cafe. Cafe is everywhere. And most of the cafe I'd gone to is freaking elegant and calming. Argh! One of my favorite is Caffe bene. They got Bingsu in their menu.
