Good luck and may the force be with you!
Move over, Candy Crush… There’s a hot new game in town!
Unlike Candy Crush, which had us focusing solely on our phones and refusing to interact with each other during our breaks, ICON POP SONG is so much fun to play because it requires a group effort.
The Candy Girls and I spent our lunch hour trying to guess a bunch of songs. And guess what we’ll be doing during merienda time? Go ahead, download the game on iTunes and give it a try… but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
The Game Changer,
I’m not a K-Pop fan and I’ve never watched any Koreanovelas, so when my friends decided to go to Korea for our next barkada trip, I was only moderately excited. But after spending five whole days there, I began to realize why so many people keep raving about this unique and beautiful country. Here are a few things that made me fall in love with Korea:
1. Hiking up Mt. Namsan
We actually weren’t prepared to climb up this mountain to get to Seoul Tower, but since the taxi driver dropped us off at Namsan park, we had no choice! It was totally worth it though as we saw so many cherry blossoms and such breathtaking views. Good thing we were able to take the cable car on the way down.
2. Seeing the Teddy Bear Museum
This unique museum which showcases Korean history and culture is located in Seoul Tower. The teddy bears were adorable—and some of them even move!
3. Biking around Nami Island
Nami is about two hours away from Seoul and it’s the island where the Koreanovela Winter Sonata was filmed. My guy and I enjoyed tandem biking and seeing the beautiful natural wonders found here.
4. Eating spicy Korean food
This authentic bibimbap was TDF! *drools*
And check this out: Love in my lunch! So cute!
5. Dressing up in Korean costumes
My friends and I had a blast trying out different Korean outfits in Hanok Village—and posing for photos! Think we can pass for real Koreans?
6. Hanging out at the cutest cafes
There are all sorts of coffee shops on the streets of Seoul, but the Hello Kitty Cafe is definitely the most adorable one of all!
7. Shopping and spotting celebrities
Myeongdong is one of the most famous shopping spots in Seoul. After hours of shopping, we were resting in Dunkin Donuts when we spotted this celebrity couple! I honestly don’t know who they are but people swarmed all over them and started taking pics—so of course, I had to snap one too! Do you know who they are?
There are so many other wonderful spots in Korea and I wish I could have explored them all. I will definitely go back there someday! And maybe I’ll start listening to some K-pop and start watching Koreanovelas too! Any recommendations?
An Nyeong Hi Ga Se Yo!

Ready to sparkle,
It all started with a wedding…
After seven amazing years together, I got married to the love of my life last March 23 in Clark. *cue cheesy confetti!*
Check out the beautiful photos in this slideshow by Pat Dy, one of Candy‘s favorite photographers and the best wedding photographer ever!
A few days later, we flew to the beautiful island of Balesin where we swam and lazed by the beach, ran and biked around the island, and ate (a lot!) at the different restaurants.
Since we just moved into our new place, we’re still busy fixing our things and haven’t really had time to cook. So my family came over and brought the food to us! We had some delicious, easy-to-prepare paninis with mushrooms, ham, guyere cheese, and caramelized onions. Yum!
And just last Sunday, we headed to the beach again, this time with Roland’s family. It was a gorgeous sunny day in Subic—perfect for having a picnic!
I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer has in store for us. How has your vacation been so far? Let’s chat in the comments or tweet me at twitter.com/angelamc23.
Feeling giddy and sunshine-y,
