I went on a short trail walking on Myra Canyon, BC during my Grand Canada 2017 tour. The view of the mountain (2500m+) from the trestles was simply breathtaking. ๐Ÿ™‚ Would love to be back…! โ˜บ๏ธ๐ŸŒธ

Yvette’s Music Playlist #20170815ย 

I just got back from the gym – been listening to Alan Walker’s music during my entire 2 hr workout session. I still remember the day when I first listened to “Faded.” I was shocked, and astonished by its elegantly melodic, sensational sounds and the beat.. and got instantly hooked. What surprised me the most as I began researching about the song wasย that this brilliant piece of music was composed by a young man who had just turned 18 … (seriously…!?@)ย Alan Walker deserves every respect for brining out such an amazing piece of creativity out of him. I’m even having my parents listen to it. #lovehismusicsomuch #AlanWalker ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Arario Museum is one of my favorite historical & architectural spots in Seoul. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a great place to stop by for a quick coffee or patisseries before or after the palace tour. If you have more time, def check out their contemporary art collection inside the museum.

The Fritz Coffee company located at the entrance level is also a very popular boutique coffee spot among the locals. (This is their 2nd location – you can google more about the company~ ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

All of the restaurants at the Arario Museum are highly recommended for all kinds of special occasions as this placeย has an outstanding view of the Changdeokgung palace. Food and service is excellent as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ There isn’t any particular requested dress code, but you won’t feel sorry at all even if you dressed up.

If you’re in a rush, but still would like to check out the view of the palace from the SPACE Building, go for a quick dessert or an afternoon tea at Cafe in Space located on 2F. The cafe has just been renovated recently. ๐Ÿ™‚ โ™กโ˜บ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿฆ‹

My old family friend came to attend her brother’s wedding in Seoul~* So we decided to have a little reunion and chat over tea at Cafe Madang, located in the basement level of the newly renovated Maison Hermes Dosan Park . ๐Ÿ™‚
The place wasn’t too crowded, and we loved that there’s a new exhibition in place. I also loved their tea selection although it’s quite simple and basic; but their tea tray could def improve. ๐Ÿ™‚
In overall, Cafe Madang is always a pleasant place to visit.


New exhibition at Atelier Hermes –ย #AtelierHermes,ย Seoul. ๐Ÿ™‚

“O philoi, oudeis philos”

“์˜ค ์นœ๊ตฌ๋“ค์ด์—ฌ, ์นœ๊ตฌ๋Š” ์—†๊ตฌ๋‚˜”

About the exhibition: (quoted from Hermes website)

The title of the exhibitionโ€”O philoi, oudeis philosโ€”is from a quote attributed to Aristotle by tradition. The exhibition on works of six actively working Korean artists in their late 20s to 30sโ€”Kim Minae, Kim Yunha, Kim Heecheon, Park Kiljong, Baek Kyungho and Yoon Hyangroโ€”is in a collaborative structure:

the six artists bring in the past of Atelier Hermeฬ€sโ€”the exhibitions held, artists invited, or artworks realized at Atelier Hermeฬ€sโ€”to the present as if they would call their โ€œfriendsโ€, let the trajectory of Atelier Hermeฬ€sโ€™s past confront with each of their present, and then reflect this again into a โ€œfriendโ€ to comeโ€”each otherโ€™s work to come (or, each otherโ€™s work which is not yet realized).

Atelier Hermeฬ€sโ€™ past decade is touched upon in a prospective manner to encounter the upcoming time instead of a retrospective manner, at this attractive junction of the coexistence of possibilities and impossibilities.
