Been raining these few days and I was browsing my sweater collection and found this gem. This sweatshirt holds a lot of memories. One, I got it from one of my favourite professor back in Korea who have passed on. He was really a fighter. He fought his illness for years and I have no idea he was sick till my last few weeks in Korea. This sweatshirt was the only piece left in his office and he said, "first come first serve". Being the ever kiasu Sinagporean me, I ran down to his office right after class. 

To any NYP students out there majoring in business courses, I urge you to take up the opportunity to study abroad for a semester in the country of your choice. You'll gain valuable experience, know yourself better and make lots of international friends. Yes, the timeframe of 4-6 months away from your loved ones is hard but keep on motivating yourself that this is once in a lifetime opportunity you wouldn't want to miss. Being financially capable is also something you have to consider. I wanted to opt for one of the European country but after the discussion with my parents, I am thankful that my parents do allow me to do a semester abroad and that I should help them to cut down on expenses as much as I could thus choosing Korea as my destination country.

It was really hard at first and being really close to my parents and A, I felt the loneliness and what's worst is the distance. It got better as days goes by and I kept telling myself to enjoy my time as much as I can as 4 months will fly away really fast. True enough, as the day of departure from Korea drew nearer, I was really reluctant to leave. Korea is just awesome. My professors made the extra effort to keep international students feel at home and we can all discuss about anything and everything. Something that I do not really experience here in Singapore. Also, make as many international friends as you can! With that, I do miss being crazy with my international friends. 

Pardon for this long post but, don't miss this opportunity if it comes by your way! 

Paired up my sweatshirt with baggy pants and slip ons as I wanted the laid-back look. September is here and may this month be a better one for us all. Till the next one!
