This trip to South Korea was another episode of historical journey. I love going to the museums. Museum after museum. Am I nuts?
It could be quite a mundane task, given the fact that I haven’t been interested in Korea’s history for years. The last I remembered reading up on Korea’s empire was when I was in primary four, thrilled with the history books handed down to me from my cousins. Vaguely remembered about the Goryeo’s dynasty. But the king that gained my admiration was King Sejong. And this time I wanted to learn more about this great king of Korea from the Joseon dynasty.
I’m thrilled to explore about history and culture. And I really think highly of Koreans for not demolishing their historical architectures. No way should one country destroy her history. We should preserve as much as we could. If we destroy our past, we would never appreciate the present. The past may have been gone, but memories ought to be preserved. How does one preserve the memories?
Before camera was being invented, people left behind drawings and their daily items to be handed down to their offsprings. Now, with technological advances, people are preserving such memories with photographs via Facebook, instagram etc. What do you preserve?
I wish to see more of the ancient artefacts around me. Be it architecture, paintings, machines, writings…I think that memories are precious. For memories exist in time, and how we spend our time determine our memories…to me, time is very precious. So I cherish my memories lots, because I want to spend time with my loved ones as much as possible. As often as possible.
Once we miss the time, we would never have it back anymore. So to greet this new year of 2015, let us hope that we have created good times and memories in 2014 and to continue creating precious memories for 2015 with our loved ones. Time…she waits for no one. Hence, I certainly hope not to let time slip by me without spending time with people I love.
Thank you 2014 for my learning journey and may 2015 be a good year of discovery and renewal of strength and commitment for me 😊💁👯👱💖
