Looking Back at WWOOF after 5 years

Posted on

Wwoofing has always been something that is very dear at my heart. I owe this farming spirit to my lovely father, Wak Jani and for me being a hard core anak Felda. Angkat buah kelapa sawit, pungut biji sawit itu perkara kecik je hehe. 5 years? Hmmm…not really accurate but more or less. Again, I […]

Reviews on Wwoofing in Korea

Posted on

Despite some uncomfortable experiences that I encountered during wwoofing in Korea, I can’t stress enough how wwoofing has taught me about Korean culture and their lifestyle. The farming is unquestionably tiring but self-redeeming at the end of the day. As I’ll be going to Korea again, I can’t resist to wwoof. Definitely. 🙂 this time? It’s […]

Bun Sok, Joy and me visited a container house near Jaesan Village. The owner was an English teacher graduated from Canada. I had met him when I was in Joy Farm for the first time but I couldn’t remember his face at all. Aigoo..my memory is getting weaker and weaker. I wish I could upgrade […]

Min Young, a 20 year old Seoulite came as a guest in Santisuk in late April. She rented the room for 50,000 won per night. However, surprisingly Nandida offered her to work with her for a year and study english with the wwoofers which was a great idea. Since then, we became good friends. These days […]

Planting Royal Azaleas 철쭉 in Spring

Mr Lee, Hojin and Haein planted flowers for spring but I couldn’t help them cause I had to take care Ratana. Weather in early spring is really unpredictable, sometimes it was very warm, sometimes it rained and even snowed.
