I started this website in 2011, just a few months right before my university graduation. This blog helped me learn so many new skills, particularly photoshop and a bit of coding essential to decorate my blog.
What was originally a personal journal turned out to be a great reference to people who are interested in studying or living in South Korea. Despite being on hiatus for so many years already, my blog is living actively on its own. For a personal blog, I’m surprised to reach more than a hundred thousand visits 💙
While I wish to keep this blog, I had a difficult time acquiring a similar domain name for a self-hosted website – thus, I created a new domain from scratch – www.leavelearntravel.com .
I’ve moved to Sydney, Australia last year and intend to write about my new experiences here. If you are interested about information on studying or living in Korea, don’t worry – I’ve imported my most popular posts on my new blog:
- Frequently Asked Questions about KGSP / GKS
- Nailed it! Passing the Korean Government Scholarship Program
- KGSP Orientation – Day 1
- Taking the TOPIK exam
- What every incoming GKS Scholar should know before coming to Korea
- and more!
As I close this blog, I wish to invite you to my new online space:
My new personal blog will talk about leaving once comfort zone, learning new skills, and of course, my favorite topic – travelling.
Once again, thank you so much for the support throughout these years and I hope to welcome you on the other side 😉

It started out as an online journal of just about everything that happened in my life months before I graduated from college last 2011. Splurk hopes to publish entries that could help aspiring KGSP students, inspire others to explore various places around the world, and of course, to maintain from how I’ve started. A personal blog. A blog where I share my thoughts, opinion, rants, and victories in my journey for a good life. Splurk has now moved to leavelearntravel.com
