It’s a program by K-Focus called little forest, where we go to a rural area (Ui-seong gun, South Korea) and spend our weekend there. At first there are only 2 vacancies for the program. So, me waiting at the Global Plaza’s lobby decided to drag any of my friends that going out from the elevator first haha. The lucky friend is Yasmin!! Long story short, they are another 2 vacancies few days after and all 4 of us can join the activities.

Ui-Seong gun only an hour and 15 minutes away from Daegu. As soon as we arrived, we changed our outfit and start painting mural for the home stay we are staying at. Then we ate dinner. Very well fed. I still remember that dinner haha We ate a hot fish soup in that cold weather. The last activity is of course welcome party. Where we have some quizzes session, Karaoke and BBQ (they prepare us fishes to eat, no worries)!! Or SOJU!!! If you like to drink. That night is freezing cold (-2-degree celcius). I never experience such coldness. It makes me scared of the upcoming winter. Now im grateful that Malaysia is summer 365 days a year haha

Second day

After eating breakfast, we went for a walk around the farm, which is quite memorable cause I took a lot of pictures haha.

We went farming (not really, since im so confident with my farming skill, I settled down with removing all the weeds)

After all the blood, sweat and tears (pffft), we went to Ui-seong’s downtown for lunch, ON A LORRY!

The lunch at that time Is good too. Reminds me of Malaysia’s dishes, nasi goreng cina haha Maybe that is why I enjoyed it. Right after, we went to a sauna turned to art gallery. 

In the evening we finished the mural drawing and play kite. We are told that the kite is our hope or desire, the higher it went the more likely it is to happen. Guess what, I’m successful on the first try and it flies high up in the sky the whole evening. My wish is to marry Mark Lee from NCT haha Lets wait and see if its true.

We went to grocery shopping right after and prepare our dinner and end our night with watching movie entitled “Little Forest”. It was the second time in that week that we watched the movie haha but why not right. On the last day, we just enjoy our breakfast and pack our stuff back to Daegu 😊 It was a great trip because I never thought I will ever go to Korea’s rural area. If you have the chance to join such program in future, no matter where you are, do join. It will be fun!
