Do you have that something or someone you want to take picture of? Well... you were like me few weeks ago before I discover that it's fun to make photography a hobby.

What's your Hobby?

It's been a long time since I made writing as my favorite hobby. Whenever I'm sad, I write. When I feel great, I write. When I'm being passionate in doing something like learning Korean, I also put them into writing.

Nowadays, I discover one thing that I also love doing... and that is photography!

Well... I am not a professional photographer neither I studied even one course about it. However, I just love taking pictures wherever I go. I'm just into taking some shots whenever I feel stressed and down these days. I'm just in love doing it!

Unfortunately, I don't have any good camera that I can use taking nice shots.
I just have my iPhone for now and I'm not that satisfied. I've been considering buying a fine camera anyway.

Here are some of the pictures I took these past few days... I'm still not good at it though... and I need more practice so please understand... hihi! :)

Valentine's Day???

It's not!!! lol
Actually, it was my student's birthday at that time... so my other students really had a hard time in cutting those different sizes of hearts just to make a big heart-shape space where we could put our letters and pictures for the birthday celebrator. Really! It's not easy! I didn't do much to help them though. hahahaha!

Delicious Snacks???

Well, it seems so... but for me, it's not. haha!

Hmmm... In fact, I was really disappointed when the waiter in that restaurant served this plate of onion rings. Wanna know why??? I thought it was a plate of fried squids (which I was craving for at that time) and I even didn't bother to read the name of it in the menu list. I also ordered cups of rice...!!! OMG! I can still remember how I reacted when I had a taste of that onion ring which I mistaken for fried squid!!!

Too Much for Two Persons???

Of course not!

Early this year, my friend from Korea visited me here and we had some snacks. We went to a restaurant and ordered this size of pizza(in the picture) and bottles of soda. Well, I just finished my work at that time so I was starving and so as my friend. So we ate everything and craved for more. We are both girls, mind you... :)

For Me???

No... for my students! hahaha! :)

This was a farewell day out because one of my university student was scheduled to go back to Korea. We really had fun. We played and ate a lot. Those glasses of ice cream are for them while I was eating my lunch. It was already 3pm that time and I didn't have my lunch yet. huhuhuhuh! T.T


Well, yeah, it looks like Japanese sushi at first but it's really different!

Kimbap is a popular Korean food made from steamed white rice (bap) and various other ingredients, rolled in Kim (sheets of dried laver seaweed) and served in bite-size slices. You can put beef, pickled daikon, carrots, seasoned spinach, imitation crab and other savory ingredients inside it. It is usually eaten during picnics or outdoor events.

Clouds at Night???

Do they look like clouds at night???

Hmmmm... They're clouds in the morning. I just played with the camera settings of my phone and tried to capture the same object in different color.

Start Now!^^

You don't need to be a professional to start a new hobby like photography. You can learn everything on the process, I think. Read some articles teaching you how to take photos like a real photographer and try experimenting. Be observant and remember that every situation is a learning opportunity. I usually bring my phone (because it serves as my camera for now...hihi) wherever I go so I can take pictures whenever I see good scenarios. But if you want to be an expert, try attending some courses about it.
