it was a great day for cherry blossoms viewing, the sun was shining but the weather was nice and cool. i love spring weather, all the more so because singapore doesn't have the four seasons.

it's been incredibly hot at home lately, so much so that i perspire even sitting in front of my laptop. my mum commented last week that she looked forward to going to work because the office has air-conditioning! i cannot tell you how much i miss the cool breezes of seoul in spring time...
jetting off to korea was the most surreal day ever, after months of talking and planning, we couldn't believe we were finally on our way to seoul. we flew into seoul pretty late at night so when we finally arrived at seoul station via the airport express subway (arex), we had missed the last train for the subway line we needed to take to our hostel. we made it safely to the hostel by showing the taxi driver a print out of the address and directions in korean (very important!) and my half-broken korean conversation with the driver.
the next day, we high-tailed towards the krispy kreme two blocks away from the hostel. singapore has no krispy kreme (we are so deprived here!) so i make sure to go to any one i can get to while i am travelling. oh original glazed, how i have missed you!
otherwise the site formerly known as michelle march. thank you so much for following me over to this new domain space. it's slightly nervy starting all over from scratch again but i hope that it will all be worth it.
today, i need to thank dane of tornadoes&tiger. a while ago, dane ran a domain name giveaway for a one-year domain name subscription. i entered and waited for the results crossing my fingers. then, one night as i was laying on my bunk bed in seoul, i had an email from dane who wrote that he was giving me a domain name! i was so happy-shocked! i was getting my own domain name for the year but...the domain name i had chosen had already been taken up and would i like to choose another one. it took me awhile before i decided on greenteafields and i am not sure why i took so long. greenteafields is already the name of my tumblr so that cuts down on one step of social media consistency. i can be really dense sometimes. speaking of consistency, i have applied for a new email for this blog so if you wish to contact me, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org. i will be switching my twitter name a few days later so that everyone has some time to get used to the new name.
well, here's to a brand new start. i am so looking forward to sharing all my latest photographs with you all! :)
