    Hi Felicia,

    welcome to blogland. Thank you for linking to me.
    I like your blog. You dare to write personal things. I am still not really there…
    Seoul is an interesting place. I worked there for a months in 2001. Most Koreans are tough, sometimes even rude – I remember I almost had to fight at the airport to keep my position at the luggage carousel – but lots of tradition and culture and kimchii….

    Take care

    Hi~ Felicia.
    I’m so suprised after reading of your post for Yoga class, because we are not good at speaking both English and Korean to each other.
    But Felicia the point of yoga: mind and body, breath and thinking, class and your life.
    …such feelings.

    You are so amazing! Thank you so much for your thoughts, and I’m happy^^

    Namaste~.

  34. December 4, 2007 11:48 AM

    Hi, I randomly came across your blog while googling about Seoul, and I must say, it’s amazing! I’m loving your photos and the wonderful fact that you’re so enthusiastic about each of your new experiences – vastly different from the many expats I know who arrive in Asia bitter, arrogant ,or both! Keep it up!

  35. December 6, 2007 1:03 AM

    Hello Jasmine!
    Contact me and I’d be glad to take you to Papergarden. Love that place!
    It’s actually both a part of Shinsadong and Apgujeong.
    Send me an email and perhaps we can get together this weekend:

    I actually haven’t been to the Galleria, I don’t like department stores here. I prefer small boutiques.
    Have a great time and I hope that you get to visit Samcheondong. This place is a must.

Any advice for someone just starting out with photography. Thanks and keep the pictures coming. Would love to see them in a book.

    Felicia, thanks for your kind comments on my blog! (Apologies for not responding more quickly, I lost your email, and I’m not quite that savvy yet on the blog stuff!)

    You are an inspiration to me. There are so many people who live in the city of Chicago, who have never seen it’s beautiful lakefront, or visited the downtown area. That says a lot. They never “get off the block”. People limit themselves to a life seen through others eyes, out fear, complancency, etc. The world is such a huge, beautiful place to learn from and I envy you for having the moxie to try to see and live as much of it as possible….but that’s where your inspiration for me settles in. I look forward to reading more about your life, work and travels, and enjoying your blog.

    I was reading your entry on getting an internship (congrats!) and just wanted to know if that was possible on an E-2 visa? I wanted to do something like that with magazines, but wasn’t sure if this was legit.

    I like the picture of a dog, is the dog yours?
    Have a nice trip to Jin island and Thailand. I envy you. I have to go back to school next week. I’ll sometimes visit this place and see what nice place you have found-like navi and yanpa-and I’ll try.Haha,- take cares, and maybe we can see each other someday:)

    I’m in Seattle now, and I’m writing this in the hotel room.
    The weather is so beutiful, it’s unusual here.

    I saw your wonderful pictures, and I noticed that your passion is photograph.
    Someone said to me you look like a photographer or artist, but I have no sense of art.
    I tried to take a nice picture several times, but there are so many things to study more.
    I envy you.

    Felicia, it’s your sister Sylvia. I am so impressed by the brightness and clarity of the photos you’ve taken in this enchanted land of Korea. You are drawing people in with your wonderful tales of the experiences you’ve had in different neighborhoods and with people.

    You were in Thailand when we last corresponded and I’m not sure you received the message that I am moving to Korea late July/ early August of THIS year! Where will you be then? Have you made a decision on where life will take you these coming months? I’m trying to find a place in Suwon so let me know if you have any recommendations on neighborhoods. Also, please forward me your contact information in Seoul so I may call you!

    I definitely love your photo taking; the mood; color; feeling; lighting and etc.

    I just discovered your blog from this 2008 Korea Beat post, and I just wanted to say I really like your photos and your sense of photo essay, not to mention your attitude. A nice counterbalance to the whine-a-day expats. It is possible to not like this or that in a city or country you didn’t grow up in but still love the place and the people.

    What a gem of a blog. I have been perusing through many different blog sites about Seoul and yours is now in my top 5. The photographs are incredible, and as a beginning photography student, I find much inspiration from your captures of color, detail, and angle. I would like to visit Seoul next summer so I will definitely be frequenting your site to learn about what this city has to offer.

    OH There you are!

    I spoke about you to a colleague of mine. I’m going to miss you as well, you were such a pleasure to have as a student. I do think that we’re going to become good friends. You’re an incredible person and I wish you all the best in Singapore, Seoul, no matter where you may be.

    Let’s get together when you return in March.

    Big hug to you!

    Thank you for the comment – your blog and photos are lovely as well!

    Hello!
    It would be nice to have coffee with you sometime. Yes, how odd is it to see you in a bookstore and find your blog on the internet? Twilight Zone or Korea Zone!
    Have a great evening.

    Your life is exactly how I want to live mine. Right now I’m learning French and I’m teaching myself Korean. I’m just 16 and I want to go to Korea when I grew up. I’m fully black, I was born in Jamaica and moved to the U.S. when I was about 3. I’ve always had a love for Asian culture, specifically Korean and Japanese. I’ve heard friends say things about how South Koreans aren’t really accepting of blacks and I felt daunted, fearing that I’d be misconstrued as illiterate or unintelligent. From what you said, on your podcast gave me hope. It completely obliterated my fears of being stereotyped. The podcast hilarious btw, because I currently live in Georgia, and I find myself saying “y’all” and “ain’t” very often. But I lived in Florida for most of my life, until I moved in 7th grade. However, I don’t find myself having a southern accents. I live in the metro Atlanta area, so many people don’t have that very heavy southern accents. I don’t even retain that Jamaican which my parents still use at home; I still to this date hardly understand my father.
    I’ve also heard that Seoul is beautiful, like the NYC of Asia! I’m so happy I found your blog, because my friends would say that “I don’t even think there are black people in Korea.” You gave me a new impression in what I can expect from Koreans, job opportunities, and etc. I also am a big fan of Korean music that resembles American pop music. I’ve come to obsess over it completely. Also, I watch Korean dramas with English subs religiously, which my friends don’t understand.

    I really enjoyed reading your blog! I want to be a writer also and possibly teach in French, and English. I also love art, and I’ve greatly come to love Japanese manga and anime!

    Hey Felicia hope all is well….This is Ramel. I finally set up a blog last night. Still not sure how to format everything but I am sure I will get the hang of it soon. I love reading through your blog and you take wonderful pictures. Blessings I will be in touch… Peace

    I’m interested in knowing if you were always a writer and photographer or was there a previous profession? Thanks for letting me know about the blog.

    Cheers!

    ha – I live close to the EWHA station exit and I’ve never been able to find the school. Your pictures are lovely and now I feel like I’ve got to find it. It looks so sunny in that photo, but it has been raining cats and dogs on and off for days. A little jealous. hmm.

  87. September 12, 2010 11:50 AM

    Thank you and what? You live close to the exit and can’t find the school? It’s right down the street. Are you kidding me?
    Anyway, yes, it has been raining cats and dogs. This photo was taken last week when it was blazing hot. I got lucky that day.
    Ciao!

    Dear Felicia,

    Hello, this is Julie Shin.
    It’s such a wonderful experience knowing you online.
    I lived in Canada for years and just came back to Korea last year.

    In order to keep studying English, I joined an English class held in my company
    and yes, here I am. I just want to know how foreigners think about Korea and their lives in
    Korea. I read your comment written years ago and was curious whethere you still in korea
    or not. That’s how I came visiting your blog.

    Anyway it’s really great knowing you and thank you for sharing your experience in Korea.

    I Hope you have great days here in Korea and talk to you later.

    Ciao.

    Julie S.
