Girls talk: Friend of Foe?

Hi guys! 
Not as my previous blog post about make up review or restaurant/cafe review, today we're going to have girls talk! 

(For those who want to suggest what's should we discuss in the next girls talk post, simply leave a comment below! xx)

And today we will talk about Friend or Foe?

How to deal when your friend put you down?
How to deal when your friends is talk behind you or backstabbing you?
Is this friend is your true friend?
Or perhaps do you do any of this?

Yes, it definitely sucks to be back-stabbed. NOBODY likes that. I think it's something that we've all been there before. But the good news is, even if you are such a sweet person, kind to everybody, you will still having people saying mean things about you. That's just the nature of people (or must I say, the nature of girls lol)
People just talked about you regardless. You'd be surprised how many people are fake and pretentious near you. 

But now since I'm in my twenties, things are different now. I treat things and deal with things with a lot more mature way but back in my teen years (I feel so old already hahahaha) if I would have heard someone talking about me, backstabbing me, OH MY GOSH! I will switch to "Drama Queen" mode (I didn't act very mature in my teen years - well most teen do stupid things. I just made things worse instead of better). I would go around and talking about it to my friends, hoping to get some sympathy and hoping them to be on my side and being just super dramatic about it. 

BUT! Before you go into this crazy mode, there's actually some thing to think about!
If you heard from B that A's saying bad things about you and B's heard it from C and so on and so on. Well, where does this source come from? It's coming from a source, from a source, from a source. Which is not trustworthy, I must say. How much can you rely on that gossip? How do you know that people don't make up the stories? How do you know that this isn't misunderstanding? 

To be honest, we are all guilty of this you know. Let's be honest, we've done it before. Who are we to judge now? Sometimes we just talk for the sake of talking because we are bored and it's just for easy for words to just come out of your mouth without even thinking. 

Words can be super super hurtful and they actually said that words is one of the world's most powerful weapons. And yet, many people just blast words out of their mouth without even thinking.

If the one's who's talking about you not even a close friend of yours, like 
I'm not even being bothered about it, you know. Who has all the time in the world to go around correcting other people and how they should think of them? Why would you care on someone thought of you when they barely even know you? (What people say isn't always the truth!) It's their own problem so just do your own thing.

From my perspective, I had some "friends" saying things about me as well. And it's not words that I really want to hear but did I confront them? Nooooo. Because I didn't think there's a need to. Honestly what's really matter is what you think of yourself. I would be careful around this person on what would I say around them, you know. I'll be careful and not trust them so much. 

Now, is the person who's saying stuff about you is a close friend of yours or someone's that's is special to you, it's gonna sucks so so soooooo much. Hmmm, how I will deal with it... I mean, if this is like a really close friend of yours - like really special to you - I think you need to confront this person. Don't let PRIDE or EGO in the way. Don't go around telling people, just pick one person that you trust and talk to this person, get different perspective on what they think. Because like I said before it could be a big misunderstanding. When a friendship is valued, there's TRUST and UNDERSTANDING

Most important question to ask yourself is, Is this friend bring out the best in you? If this person makes you sad more than happy, maybe you can do without them. 

Don't disguise being a BAD FRIEND with fake concern.
You should always treat someone how you want to be treated. You should always treat someone with respect. There's a reason why you've got 2 ears and 1 mouth. Because you are supposed to listen more and talk less. So, before you say something, you really have to ask yourself "are my words going to build or destroy?" 

To save yourself from the unnecessary drama, when your friends are talking about other people don't join in. Just stay quiet or just talk about something else. 

Honestly we have bigger things to deal with everyday in our life. So why hold on to the resentment? Let things go and do yourself a favor and forgive :)

Not everybody in this world is going to love me or even like me and that's totally fine! Just let the small people do their talking.
Keep smiling and chin up!

Love always,

Cafe 207 Blossom - I have this thing for dried flowers

Hi peeps! How's your day? 
I hope not as gloomy as my expression in the photo below!

 I must say I'm feeling depressed these days due to my never ending project and homework. Sometimes, it's driving me crazy when I want to write a new blog post but in the other hand those untouched homework's keeps calling my name. Urgghhh!!! 
Anyway, the autumn's in the air already in Korea! Well, not 100% since in the afternoon it's still freaking hot! Ahhhh! I can't wait for those pretty crunchy leaves appeared! image

Moving on!
Me and my boyfriend went to this traditional Korea restaurant and what's surprise me is this restaurant is super cheap! Only KRW 7.000/person. And they giving out a lot of dishes as well. Look at those delicious side dishes! If you are Korean food foodie, you will definitely can't miss their side dishes! Which is called 반찬 (Banchan) in Korean.

Anyway this restaurant called 시골밥상 (Sigol Babsang) and located in 서면 (Seomyeon). As I remembered, it's really close to the MRT station so you just have to follow the side walk.

So the total will be KRW 14.000 for these delicious lunch. I can eat this everydayyy! I will definitely bring my family to this restaurant when they're visiting Busan.

After we had our lunch, we decided to go to the book store. Look at what I've found! Kinfolk in Korean version! They sell it cheaper than the English version, I don't really know why.

Continuing our weekend getaway, we decided to go to this cafe called 207 BLOSSOM. Found this cafe from the internet and trying to find it by using Naver maps but we get lost for 3 times. I almost giving up but my boyfriend didn't want to. So we give it a last try andddddd... we found it!!! We actually didn't get lost since we go back to the first place. I said that, this alleyway is the right way but my boyfriend said it's not. In the end, it's the right way after all! You can never get wrong with women instinct!

This is the first entrance. Located just across Lotte Cinema building!

This is the second entrance, we actually find this second entrance at first but we thought it was dead end. But we end up going inside the alley and yes we were right!! (I was right to be exact lol)

Here's the cafe that we've found through those hardships. Took us quite a long time to figure out which way is the right way.

"You can bring your own dessert!"
This is actually the first cafe that actually allow their customer to bring their own dessert. So cool!

Let's take a peek inside shall we?

All those dried flowers are just so pretty! I feel like I'm in flower heaven!

So flowerfull! (this is not even a word lol)

My boyfriend said that this flower actually represent my image, they are called baby breath. I was like, "are you saying that I'm just an extra that no one really cares about?". It was a joke okay guys hahaha He told me to look it up on google - the baby breath flower meaning and when I'm trying to look up for this flower meaning on Google, it said that..

I'm just giggled when I read this. I mean, it's really sweet how he said that this flower represent my image. Well, I know for you guys it means nothing but still it made my day.

The shop owner really loves dried flowers and she also sells these dried flowers in a little plastic vase! So adorable right? Me and my bf decided that when we are married we are going to give one of these for our guests! How cute is that? And it's not that pricey too!

Milk tea and green tea latte. Yummy!!!

Those delicious bread was given by my boyfriend's mother. The cafe didn't provide any dessert - well, I think so? Because there's no dessert on their menu!

In the end, I decided to purchased these for my roommate  (left) and for my boyfriend's mother (right). While my boyfriend bought the middle one for me! Actually I requested the owner to arrange a new dried flower bouquet for me since I want pink color flower. So pretty right?

Anyway after that, we decided to come back to my University area and after strolling around we go to this cafe called "Cafe VU". Located just next to 부경대학교 (Pukyeong University), inside the alleyway! And it's on the second floor so keep looking up.

Looks like the cafe mascot, don't you think so?
NO? Well, let this bunny give you a punch then!

Never been here before so we decided to give it a try!

Cozy and homey atmosphere.

Hi there!

Favorite shot of the day!

Scarbles all over the blackboard wall.

Enjoying my hot cocoa mint latte.

And as always we took some random photos.

Looking at these photo make me realized that my hair are so long! 
Time flies so fast, eh?

Into the vortex, we go.


Well, that's it for today post! Hope you enjoy reading it and the next blog post will be about makeup review probably so stay tuned!

Love always,
