Be A Sunflower

Seoul, South Korea—

A year and 3 months ago, I’ve blogged about the Eulalia Festival in Haneul Park. Last August, we chanced to visit the park again before sending off my aunt and uncle to the airport. We arrived almost around noon time and planned not to stay long because the weather was too hot to handle. There was not even a lot of visitors, probably less than 20 people if I’m not mistaken.


We rode the park’s electric car which charged us ₩4,000 each for a round trip. Going inside the park, it was filled with green and healthy eulalia grass. At the farther end to the right from the entrance, there was a small field of sunflowers.



Be outstanding in your field.

Hold your head high.

Spread seeds of happiness.

Feed the birds.

Keep on the sunny side.

Think big.

Bloom, blossom, grow!

Despite the boiling temperature, we managed to look around the vast ground and snapped lots of photos. Relieved, the elders enjoyed the short time, too.
