Stop Posting Your Photos Everywhere and Do This

Everyday I see the same photos posted over and over again. I see the same shot of the same temple posted in almost every one of my Facebook groups, on Flickr, 500px (which then gets reposted back to Facebook) and Google Plus. We have all done it, but the question that you should be asking yourself should be “is this really working?” I am going to take a stand and say “No, it is not working and you should just stop… NOW”

The dogs and cats at Korean pet shops are always too ridiculously cute. They also seem too young to be away from their mothers, but I digress.

Sometimes it can be lonely as a foreigner, and I do see the appeal of having a pet, but I do know that I want all the playtime and none of the responsibilities that come with having one. I still like walking by the pet shops late at night and having a look though.


Cat Bus!

South Korea doesn't have school buses. 

Or at least not how you and I think of school busses.  For public school the students either live close enough to walk to school, or get rides or take public transportation. 

But for pre-school/Kindergarten and afterschool classes the kids get picked up in vans that are kind of the equivalent of Church vans.  They hold about 10 kids or so and are usually bright yellow with the name of the school on the side. 

The Worwick vans aren't yellow, they're blue and gray - I guess to go with the color scheme of the school and the kids uniforms and whatnot. 

Anyway these vans are pretty much only used for schools so they're easy enough to spot on the street. 

Every once in awhile as I'm walking down my street on the way to school I see the COOLEST van ever.

I am so excited to write about the time I had at the Tiger Temple. Tiger Temple, or Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua, is a Buddhist temple 3 hours away from Bangkok. It was founded in 1993 as a forest temple and sanctuary for wild animals, including, of course, tigers.

The bus ride was long, but the tigers were awesome. I didn’t make any friends on this trip, so I only have two photos of myself with tigers, but the experience was indescribable. Tigers are such majestic animals, and these were very happy tigers.

With all this free time* on my hands, I may have turned into a cat lady. Or maybe I always was one. I like how he plays hard to get. So cute!

*It is the illusion of free time. I do have a thesis to complete… one of these days.

My dreams have finally came true. I have been wanting to check out a so called "Cat Cafe" since I learned such a place existed but didn't know where to begin the search. Thankfully a friend who is also cat crazy (or wait, I may be the only crazy one) showed me the ropes at the kitty cat heaven in Gangnam (near American Apparel out exit 6, there is usually a guy dressed in a cat costume at the exit, he knows where to go.) I can honestly say it was everything I had hoped and wished for, plus more. Hot chocolate and a zillion cats napping, and frolicking about, well mostly napping. Until the rightly named "Cat-father" brought out the chicken that is. That is when the real action began. They were everywhere, over your head, under your feet, on the table, all the prepositions in the book! It was madness I tell you, and I loved every minute of it.
