The Reading Nook | 3 | Books I’ll (probably) Never Read

I spied this tag going around booktube after watching Ariel's video of the tag created by this lovely lady (go check them out) and thought I'd have a whirl at the same thing here on the blog. Let's get to it. What's a really hyped book you're not interested in reading?   Lady Midnight and… Continue reading The Reading Nook | 3 | Books I’ll (probably) Never Read

This Geeky Kitchen | The Madeline Experiment #1

I'VE recently had an attack of the blues. Muscle pain, tiredness and general 'meh-ness' has left me rather unproductive in recent weeks. Until yesterday. The mojo is back and the baking cogs were turning. I'VE always had a hankering to try Madelines and I've always found then a little heavy and dry.  My answer? My… Continue reading This Geeky Kitchen | The Madeline Experiment #1

This Months Bests | May 2017

HERE we are again. Already time for the second favourites (and if we're lucky this will go up on the correct Wednesday). I've played around the the format a little! Hope you like it! FOOD / DRINK AN old favourite and a new one this month. The old favourite is Coffee Travel (커피여행)  way out… Continue reading This Months Bests | May 2017

These Geeky Adventures | Boseong & Yeosu

THE sun has arrived in Korea! The weather is becoming deliciously warm and that means trips. Upon seeing photos, one half of the parental unit declared that I was on a permanent holiday - I like to see it as living in a place where the sun actually shines when it's suppose to, and where it's… Continue reading These Geeky Adventures | Boseong & Yeosu

This Months Bests | April

I have my book posts, my baking posts, ones about teaching and ones about traveling around Korea, and even ones about music, but what about all the things I miss in-between! So, in order to not miss anything, I plan on putting up a favourites post the first Wednesday of every month (though being the first,… Continue reading This Months Bests | April

The Reading Nook | Two

AFTER the upsurge of reading in January came the drought. I have been content to re-read and listen to audio books of old favourites as the hours in the day ran away from me, as they are want to do. THE February-March changeover is always a busy time of year in Korea. The school year… Continue reading The Reading Nook | Two

A Year in Music | 2017 | 1st Quarter

I'M always interested in keeping track of the music I listen too, which is varied in genre, but there are always some songs that stick around for longer, or there are songs that bring certain memories to the forefront of your mind. I'm making more of an effort to actually record my monthly top tens… Continue reading A Year in Music | 2017 | 1st Quarter

ESL | Why Korea?

I'VE thrown teaching materials at you for some weeks now, and thought it was time to take a pause and talk about how and why I came to be in Korea in the first place. Perhaps you're looking into Korea yourself, or perhaps you are simply interested in other peoples stories. Whatever the reason, I… Continue reading ESL | Why Korea?

This Geeky Kitchen | Adventures in Red Velvet

WE'VE another wee friend with us today - they're not just for school purposes! I'M rather fond of this wee chap! I made my first Red Velvet Cake a year ago in April 2017. I'd offered to make a friends birthday cake, any kind they liked. Their favourite was Red Velvet, a cake I have… Continue reading This Geeky Kitchen | Adventures in Red Velvet

The Reading Nook | One

HELLO on a Thursday! I'm switching it up a little, and adding a second post during the week. Monday posts will remain teaching related, and Thursday posts will range from travel, to cooking, to books. I'm kicking off my Thursday posts with my first Reading Nook. JANUARY was a pretty thin reading month for me,… Continue reading The Reading Nook | One
