Pic Series of Jeju: Ossulloc Green Tea Garden

A beautiful place I went to when I visited Jeju Island was Ossulloc! They are well known for their delicious teas, green tea ice cream, green tea sponge cakes (like the picture I have on my header), and for their big tea garden! There was a particular tea garden I wanted to visit in South Korea but since I wasn't able to go there, having this opportunity was the perfect replacement! I had a lot of fun here and I hope you're able to see the scale and beauty of this place! Enjoy~

Hello, Zora Dora!

Grapefruit Ginger Honey Paleta
My boyfriend recently took me to the colorful, delicious ice cream/ice pop store in Beacon, NY called Zora Dora and I immediately knew I had to tell you guys about it! It's a while away from the city, so it can be perfect for a day when you feel like visiting New York outside of the city - you'll be pleasantly surprised at how much there is up north!

Zora Dora produces micro batch ice creams and paletas, a Latin American treat made with ice and fresh fruit. It's a small shop along the Main Street in Beacon, but it has a pretty big selection. This cute shop seems to be well-known in the town for making their signature ice pops with all-natural ingredients.

A Dash of Sugar: My Childhood Reminder

I'm not much of a cereal person, and I don't eat it often... In fact, it's quite rare. It's easy to just pass the cereal section without much thought while food shopping but when I saw the box of Rice Krispies my mom bought, I couldn't take my eyes off it.

A few days ago, I posted this picture (above) on to Instagram. It's a bowl of Rice Krispies cereal with some fresh strawberries and blueberries sprinkled with a dash of cane sugar on top. Fairly normal, pretty and tasty looking, but it was so much more than that.

Pic Series of Jeju: The Spirited Garden

The Spirited Garden was a beautiful place shown to me by my uncle, and it was one of the most beautiful and serene gardens I've ever been to. The serenity I felt and the experience isn't easily described by words for me. It was an experience that was above peaceful and cool, it's hard to explain. I hope you enjoy these photos and catch a glimpse of the extraordinary experience I had here.
