Photo Potpourri is a precursor to Recent Realities. Starting in July 2016, all Photo Potpourri posts will be known as Recent Realities.

Photo Potpourri

Whew! Today’s the last day I’ll be working my summer hours. I’m off the next two days, so when I return to work on Monday, I’ll be back to my regular hours. I’m looking forward to hanging out and meeting friends the next three days :3

As for this round of Photo Potpourri, do enjoy the two cafes I visited recently and the stationery stash I sent to Amanda for winning the giveaway! I do apologise for the lack of photos in this post, but hopefully the next one will have more! Enjoy these, though!

Chloris Tea & Coffee

A couple of weeks ago, I met up with Chantelle to go on a mission (scroll down for my mission) in Gangnam. After we completed my mission, we went to Chloris Tea & Coffee in Sinnonheyon, and it was nice! I still prefer the Sinchon branch, but this branch amazed me because they had a pedal organ. In fact, we even sat next to it while I photographed my mission and drank some iced milk tea :D

House on the Hill

A few days ago, I decided to check out this cafe in my area called House on the Hill. It was a gorgeous place. So airy with so many natural light! I also fell in love with their lemon and ginger sparkling tea, which is cold-brewed tea with sparkling water. That drink was such a new concept for me that I love it! In fact, this cafe will be a place I’ll return to on occasion because I really love its ambience :D

Mission Accomplished: Stationery Stash Shopping

And this was my secret mission! Chantelle and I shopped together to buy Amanda’s stationery stash :D She won my Korean giveaway, and the package finally reached her, so I can share with everyone what I put in her stash! ^^ I bought her a good selection of notebooks, stationeries, pens, stickers, nail stickers, and a notepad :D Chantelle and I had a blast selecting things that we hoped Amanda would like. I hope to host another giveaway again in the future, so I hope this sample stash will give you all a better idea on what’s part of my giveaway :D


  1. The cafe is super cute! Looks like my dream cafe haha, most of the cafes here in England aren’t nearly as cute as the one you went to! Ugh, I love lemon and ginger together <3 I've recently been having lemon and ginger green tea and it's so lovely!

    I'm looking forward to your future giveaways, these are so cute and thoughtful!

    • Yes, Korea has so many awesome cafes, and the amount is ridiculous, yet I love the variety! ^^

  2. House on the Hill looks so open and bright. The view looks so pretty from the windows too.

    • The view is nice . . . sort of. It overlooks a five-way intersection, but the trees are all part of the US base XD;;
