After a wonderful Chuseok holiday, the whole staff woke up bright and early on a Wednesday morning to meet outside of our apartment at 7 AM.

It’s finally fall! Which means my inner basic white girl is so happy for all things fall (I already bought another scarf).

We saw a neat rooftop garden, The Garden of Stars, which honored Hong Kong celebrities with quite a few statues and greenery. It was a great place to see the ocean, the city buildings and the streets all at once.

We celebrated Luke’s birthday last weekend in Busan, because Busan is awesome, and only an hour away so we go there a lot haha. We started with a sweet lunch at Sushi Berry in Dongbaek with Stephanie and Sam, where Luke and I split two sushi rolls which were HUGE – the Dragon Roll and Rainbow Roll.
