If you come all the way from Seoul (or basically from anywhere) to Nami Island, it is worth it to also visit Petite France in the same day.

2011 - Real Adventure

My highlights of 2011:

Trip to EuropeMoving out from SingaporeLiving and traveling in KoreaJoining ToastmasterEnjoying snowWatching Lee Seung Gi live concertInviting my parents, sister and brother to visit KoreaSnowboarding
Most things happened in the second half of the year. Thank you Allah for everything. I still expect more adventure in 2012, but I hope I will be more focus in my learning and career. Someday this year, I will come back for good.
