Where I’m from.

This post has been inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s September Photo a Day challenge x   When people ask me where I’m from, it often means “Why are you an Asian looking person living in Australia? How did you get here?” I’m fairly happy to answer that I’m adopted and that I’ve been in Australia […]

Orange…and black.

This post was inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s Photo a Day challenge x These are the hats Mr Unprepared bought while we were overseas. The top one is from Japan and the bottom one is from Korea. Both countries are absolutely mad for baseball. Both have teams called the Giants. Both teams wear the colours […]

Gyeongpo: a nice surprise.

For many years, when I thought of South Korea, I didn’t think of beautiful beaches. I thought of cold winters with snow and an ‘inland’ kind of feel. I wasn’t very educated on my birth country, mostly by stubborn choice (such a rebel), because I wanted to just get on with being an Aussie and […]
