#HNGRY2019 Update 2.0

Greetings from the road from Vienna to Tiszavasvári. So far my teammates played the ABC-I-Spy game, sang a couple of road trip appropriate songs while I took a nourishing nap. The past couple of days in Vienna felt quite surreal. We spent the weekend attending Awakening Europe along with the Hungarian pastors. The presence of […]

Update 1.0

Greetings from Dubai Airport! It’s been a slow journey and it’s surreal that it’s finally happening. I have many hopes for this next month and a half. I’m mostly delusional from such a dry flight so don’t trust a word I say. This is my update video that I filmed just a couple of days ago:  […]

#HNGRY2019 Support Letter

Dear You, You may have known me as a naive, young kid, trying to find my way through the winding paths of life. Or you may have known me just a few here-and-there’s ago, where we might have talked about our hopes and dreams. Whether you’ve known me for long or short, you are receiving […]

cleaning

It’s been a month since I came back to Taipei. There were many screaming and hugging sessions as I caught up with many faces I’ve missed. I wrote a poem everyday in April (check out #escapril), watched one too many movies, caught up with my tea shop cravings, and roamed around the little alleys I […]

Slowly

I woke on the morning of February thirteenth, muttered to umma “I should check the results for the working holiday lottery thingie”. Turned on the laptop, clicked on the notice that announced who got the lucky golden ticket (not to the chocolate factory). According to the Korean alphabets, Ko should have been the first few […]

I have a job now.

Laundry is spinning around as I type this. I look over and wonder if I added too much detergent because the bubbles forming inside the washing machine seems a little too excessive. Not sure if I was just too excited from all the energies teeming around me or the overly caffeinated tea I just had […]

jan 2019

The accumulative snowing minutes I’ve witnessed for the last month is five. Five short minutes where I saw teeny flakes floating down like heavenly dandruffs. My only heavy snow memory is when I was five—appa and I had a snow fight while umma was inside most likely cooking lunch. It’s almost a week since my […]

Taipei City

10 Aug 2018 Dear Home, I’m sorry to have denied your rightful title for so long. I don’t think I’ve ever loved you till recently: how comfortable you have grown. You were this disgusting humid prison that I felt stuck on for the last seventeen years of my life. I hated your sauna-like summers, rainy […]
