57th TOPIK II Experience and tips

It's the mandatory TOPIK experience post again. Probably my 5th! It's so surreal how fast time passes and it's already my 5th time taking TOPIK. For readers who like to ask why I would spend money to re-take it every two years, I just like to keep my certificate valid as I would never know when I need it. It's also an activity that I look forward to every two years (ya I love taking language tests!!), and more importantly,…

Rediscovery

Rediscovering my love for Korean novels :) What better way to start than to re-read my favourite novel! It's been 5 years or more since I bought the 3-novel set, and actually I think I've only finished the first two books, and was halfway through the third novel.

But it was cutting too close to my return flight so I had to give up the…

Hello Russian!

Welcoming another new language to my life :) I started Korean in 2008 and re-started Japanese in 2012. Can't quite believe it's been 10 and 6 years since then.

I've always wanted to learn Russian someday, just that I didn't get down to doing it till now. It…

Phases of interest

Hello, blog. It has been a while. I've learnt long ago that life works in funny ways and at least personally, things never quite seem to go the way I want them to be. Project #2018282, which was supposed to be the highlight of the year, is not going to happen. The surprising thing is that I decided it on my own volition. Overall, it doesn't seem like a bad outcome. In fact, I was actually quite happy about it…
