Today is my last day in Korea! Just when my skin has started to faintly show the effects of the miraculous air and water here which gives the Koreans such flawless, radiant skin, I have to leave.
In fact, by the time this post is published (on timer), I will already be on a plane bound for Hong Kong for transfer to Singapore.
Korea is a wonderful, wonderful place. Will elaborate on that another day. Just wanna share some photos first!
Enjoying Korea with my favourite girls. Our first overseas trip together without the guys! Awesome, heh.
This next photo is possibly my favourite of the entire trip. Nanny Wen enjoys doing this thing she describes as “bombing my photos”. That’s when I’m self-camwhoring and she’d sneak into my frame without me knowing, to make a funny face. This is her best bombing yet.
Here’s another one. But this time, I kinda knew she was going to do it already, so I was laughing. Her funny posture and expression was just her trying to rush into my frame before I snapped the picture.
Here’s one she didn’t get.
Shopping in Doota, a popular mall in Seoul. I can’t stop thinking DotA (the game). I didn’t shop much this trip. Somehow, kinda lost the mood for crazy shopping.
Hello Kitty hair accessories. I wanted to buy some, then I looked at the prices, then drooled at them for 10 minutes and ended up not buying any. They’re, like, S$30 to S$60 each or around there. For hair clips! Crazy!
Prettiest luggage bags ever. I would have bought some if I hadn’t already spent a grand on my Mickey Mouse and Guess luggage bags. These are pretty expensive, too. I think the small ones are around S$100. Didn’t dare look at the big ones.
This is the outside of a palace. There are many palaces in Seoul. Five or something like that, I think. I might share my photos of our palace visit. But it was a bit boring to be honest.
I think Koreans are really good at interior decoration. Many of their restaurants are really nice and pretty and cosy.
Really big dog in a shopping alley.
A random street.
Our first meal in Korea was of street food. We were looking for a restaurant to eat at and decided to stop and get a small bite. Then we kept adding on to our order because everything tasted so good, and actually stood there and ate an entire meal.
Seoul is bursting with cafes. You can’t walk two steps without encountering one!
The night life is quite vibrant in Seoul. Restaurants and pubs and shopping. Or maybe because we stayed at the university district so it’s more happening there.
Two Korean cuties in the subway.
Our lodgings in Korea.
We stayed in a place called Ann Guesthouse. It looks like some kind of office building with units converted into home-like spaces. I really love it here. It’s so cosy. It’s just directly above the subway and very near shops and restaurants. And it’s really cheap!! S$30 per person per night in a family unit with five beds. Free daily laundry services, too.
There’s an upstairs area like an attic. Well, it’s kinda plain but I love it cos it feels so cosy! Nanny Wen and I shared the upstairs area. I bumped my head countless times on the ceiling.
It’s usually the going downstairs that does it. I kept bumping my head on that jutting ceiling just above the steps.
Sitting on the steps.
Okay, that’s all! It’s really tiring blogging when overseas. So many activities in the day, then, like, there isn’t much time left to rest and sleep at night before the next day starts again. Even though our itinerary has been super relaxing to the max. lol
Will blog more when I get back to Singapore! =)
