5-Years in Korea


I have been living in Seoul, South Korea for the last five years and I can say that I am still enjoying my time here!  Here is a list of the milestones that I have achieved in the last five years!

  • 2012 
    • Started my MBA at KAIST. I was chosen to be part of the CKJ (China, Korea, Japan) Program where I was able to collaborate and do research with Chinese and Japanese MBA students in Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan.
  • 2013 
    • Dean’s list! Top 7% in my program (4.3 GPA).
  • 2014
    • Graduated from KAIST!
    • Traveled to Japan (2nd time), Turkey, and France! I guess this was my traveling year before starting my career.
  • 2015 
    • Got a full-time job as a corporate trainer.
    • Bought my first condo in the Philippines! My first vacation home! It is still under construction, but it scheduled to be completed in late 2018!
  • 2016
    • I did not achieve or did anything special in 2016. However, I was able to save over ₩20,000,000 ($17,500 USD).
    • I said goodbye to my company in December 2016 due to many reasons. I will talk about it in a future post.
  • 2017
    • Immigration accepted my application to be a long-term resident (F-2-7 visa)! I do not need to be sponsored by a company any more to live in Korea.
    • Adopted Theodore Princeton (Teddy).
