That moment when Korean tourists asked you to have a picture with them!

My friend and I were in the middle of shooting these photos and stopped for a bit because there are so many people passing by our direction. Of course I don't want to be that "no care blogger at all" so we stopped and let them pass but then, something unexpected came up. There is a group of Koreans (tourists I guess lol) who stopped at Jov's (my friend) place.

  • Korean Guy 1 to Jov:Do you want me to take your picture together?
  • Jov:No it's okay.
  • Then Korean Guy 1 went to me

  • Korean Guy 1:Can I have a picture with you?
  • I was like "What? Seriously? Me?" of course I didn't say this to him. Just in my mind lol

  • Me:Sure
  • Korean Guy 1:1 more please?
  • Me:Sure
  • While the guy's taking picture, his friends and/or relatives also approached me. Then the Korean girl took her phone out. I thought she's going to ask me to take their picture. Surprisingly, she also wanted to have a picture with me.
  • Them:Come here
  • Me:Okay
  • Korean Guy 2:Guhnra. Maguhnra ka. (Maganda daw. It means pretty hahaha)
  • Them:Thank you so much!
  • Me:Sure no problem

After they leave us, my friends started teasing me saying haba ng hair! I was like did that really happen? Seriously? Why me? Thinking that I'm with my friends that are prettier than me. Lol. All I can do is to be grateful about it. So to those Koreans, thank you so much! You boosted my confidence! ♥
The point of this post is that, we all have our own version of beautiful. We shouldn't be insecure of others just because you think they're prettier than you or glamorous than you. We have to learn to appreciate the little things. That's when we become happy. To be contented is the key to being happy. Be thankful of what you have even if those are the "little things". Have a fun week ahead! :)
