Thank you for following my blog.
Happy New Year to you all..! 🌸
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. 🙂 Would love to be back…! ☺️🌸

Yvette’s Music Playlist #20170815
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 was that this brilliant piece of music was composed by a young man who had just turned 18 … (seriously…!?@) 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 🙂
우연히 듣자마자 흠뻑 빠져버린 앨런 워커의 음악들… 아직도 처음 Faded 를 접한 순간을 잊을 수가 없다. 오늘은 2시간 운동을 하며 내내 앨런 워커와 함께…. 🙂 탁월한 창조물은 그 형태가 무엇이던 살아 꿈틀거리는 생명체처럼 광대한 에너지를 주변에 전파한다. 마치 창조자의 무한한 세계를 듣는 이들에게 전달이라도 하듯… 오늘처럼 비오는 날 스스로를 motivate하기에 적격이었던 곡. 새로운 음악 접하시는 것을 즐기시는 아빠에게도 이 곡을 소개하자, 여자 보컬의 음색이 너무 좋다며 푹 빠지셨다. 세대와 나이, 인종과 문화를 뛰어넘는 탁월한 음악을 창조해 낸….
다시 듣고 또 들어도 대단한 앨런 워커의 음악들. 🙂

Arario Museum is one of my favorite historical & architectural spots in Seoul. 🙂 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~ 😉 )
All of the restaurants at the Arario Museum are highly recommended for all kinds of special occasions as this place has an outstanding view of the Changdeokgung palace. Food and service is excellent as well. 🙂 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. 🙂 ♡☺🌸🦋

New exhibition at Atelier Hermes – #AtelierHermes, Seoul. 🙂
“O philoi, oudeis philos”
“오 친구들이여, 친구는 없구나”
About the exhibition: (quoted from Hermes website)
The title of the exhibition—O philoi, oudeis philos—is from a quote attributed to Aristotle by tradition. The exhibition on works of six actively working Korean artists in their late 20s to 30s—Kim Minae, Kim Yunha, Kim Heecheon, Park Kiljong, Baek Kyungho and Yoon Hyangro—is in a collaborative structure:
the six artists bring in the past of Atelier Hermès—the exhibitions held, artists invited, or artworks realized at Atelier Hermès—to the present as if they would call their “friends”, let the trajectory of Atelier Hermès’s past confront with each of their present, and then reflect this again into a “friend” to come—each other’s work to come (or, each other’s work which is not yet realized).
Atelier Hermès’ 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.
