6 Months

I can not believe it has been 6 months since I arrived back in Korea.

I have had the craziest time here. Good and bad. I’ve experienced more in these 6 months than I have in my whole life. There are a few things I wish did not happen but for most of these 6 months, I have had the greatest time.

I feel like the time has gone so fast but I haven’t done much so I am hoping in the following 6 months I will explore Korea more and really make my time here count.

I don’t miss London yet but I miss my family so much. They are the only things which is missing in my life a the moment. But me being here wouldn’t be possible without them.

What should I do in the next 6 months that I should have already done?
Let me know and I will write a blog post about it when I do it!

There are so many amazing people who I have met in the past 6 months who have made my time here so amazing (Nick, I know you are reading this and you know you are the main one).
When I was moving here people would always say to me ‘You only stayed there one month are you sure you can live there’?
Guess what, you should move to Korea and live a little!

I am looking forward to the following months. My favourite season, Winter is on it’s way! I want to feel the brittle coldness that is Korean winter! Let’s hope that more amazing things happen during the rest of my time here!

Prince Harry vs The Sun

I know everyone is writing about Prince Harry, but today I decided that I need to say something. And what better way to say it in a lovely blog post!

Tonight, as my mum was watching the news, I heard the reporter say that The Sun, are going to publish the naked photos that were taken of Prince Harry in Vegas. In my mind, there were 1000 bells ringing because I think there are so many problems with The Sun publishing this photo.

The Sun stated that: “We are publishing the photos because we think Sun readers have a right to see them. The reasons for that go beyond this one story.” 

I believe that although, yes the public want to see the pictures of Harry, they have many other ways of seeing these photos without having it published in British Newspapers. Not only that, but, Prince Harry naked was yesterday’s news. If they wanted to publish it because they think that the public deserve to see it and we are too dumb to go on to the internet and search it ourselves, they would have published it yesterday, or today. Why tomorrow? I think The Sun just wants to humiliate Harry more than he has already been.

Yes I know, as a Royal he shouldn’t be taking part in such activities, but he is 27 and a human, he deserves to have fun and if being naked is the way he wants to have fun, so be it. 

The main reason I have decided to write this post is pretty simple. If The Sun publishes the photos of Harry, it shows the rest of the world that British newspapers and Journalists do not respect Prince Harry or the Royal family for that matter. As a nation, we should be most accepting of Harry, even when he makes mistakes, we should protect him and that means, not publish his naked photo. 

Now I am all for Press freedom, but really, I don’t think there can be total Press freedom as it would probably cause more problems than it’ll solve. And humiliating a member of our Royal family, does not make British media look good.

I suppose we all have the right to see the photos of Harry if we want to, so it is not necessary for it to be published in a popular British Newspaper. It just magnifies the quality difference between Tabloid and Broadsheet newspapers.

A night with Passion.

For those of you who have not read The Empty Suitcase Prjoect, please read (and watch the videos) first!

(Ignore my fatness!!)

It has been 2 years since Jeremy ‘Passion’ Manongdo visited London. Luckily he decided to come back this year! Jeremy is now doing a small tour called ‘The tour that could’, where he will visit; London, England; Gothenburg, Sweden; Oslo, Norway; Arnhem, Netherlands; The Hague, Netherlands;  Brussels, Belgium; Bern, Switzerland; Lyon, France; Roissy en Brie, France & back to London, England. The tour started on the 31st of March in London.

I purchased a ticket and went along to the show on Saturday. It was amazing.

I have been listening to Jeremy for about two years now. I’ve always thought he has one of the best voices I’ve heard, but he is something else live! When he was singing, the whole crowd was silent. He has the ability to make everybody stop and just listen.

He gave, what was to me, an emotional show. He performed; 32, Well Done & A Reason for Everything, which are all songs written for/about his family members. It was amazing to hear where his inspiration comes from since he inspires me so much.

He also sang some falsetto! He nailed Climax by Usher! Every girl (some of the guys too) went weak at the knees! (Including me! haha)

After Jeremy performed (with a demanded encore), a meet and greet was set up. Almost everyone in the venue waited behind to see him. I decided to wait until the end because then I feel a little less like a fan-girl and a little bit more like a professional (Yeah right! I just wanted more time with him!). I was shocked and super happy when he recognised me! He remembered my blog about the empty suitcase project and because AJ Rafael tweeted him to say that I am sweet (Eeeek!).

Anyway, I asked him if I can interview him next time he is back and London (the end of April) and he said yes! So, that will be coming to my blog early May! =]

So, now (more than ever), stay tuned!
