Good afternoon! My name is Sheylara. I shall be your host today and show you another random bunch of photos from Seoul for my amusement.
I meant for your amusement.
This is me and my dearest friends. They’re my dearest friends because they put up with my rubbish. But I shan’t tell you what rubbish. ;)
These steps lead to the attic, as you have already seen in my earlier pictures. I would like to have an attic in my future house.
Gyeongbokgung (Palace). Every hour every day (according to our palace guide), they play out some kind of “Entering the Palace Ceremony” so you’ve got all these actors in court official costumes waiting outside the palace grounds for the signal to proceed.
It’s kinda amusing seeing these waiting ancients juxtaposed against the modern city landscape on the other side of the road.
On our way to the palace, we came across a couple of trees receiving life support. We didn’t quite know what to make of them.
To be honest, the palace ceremony was very boring. A commentary in four different languages (I think Korean, Japanese, English and Chinese) accompanied the rituals but we couldn’t get much out of it because the sound was quite distorted and the English accent was hard to understand.
The only really fun thing to do in the palace was taking photos.
I kept thinking the actors playing the palace guards and officials must be really bored having to stand around all day maintaining poker faces while tourists shamelessly crowd around them to pose for photographs.
You can see modern buildings peeking over the palace walls, lol.
Some parts of the palace are quite peaceful and romantic. Nice for romantic strolls with loved ones, especially with the nice autumn weather, cool yet sunny, that we experienced while there.
We had lunch at a quaint cafe with an artistic air. Seoul has tons of cafes like this. Love them!
I had this basil olive oil pasta. Wasn’t salty enough but the fragrance was there.
A plastic surgery ad in the Seoul subway.
Wang Wang and Nanny Wen both say this photo is obscene. Obscene meh? Just eating a stick of sausages only wat.
Okay, I am now suitably amused. I hope you are, too.
Until the next time. This is Sheylara signing out!

@Sheylara: Obscene? Maybe if the sausages weren’t on a stick lar…:P
Those trees on life support shots were great. Yo’ cam whorin’ reached a new level with the sausage pic.

By the way, I like photo #16 from top the best. (the one that you are taking off your sunglasses halfway.)
Hahahaha! It does look a little wrong! :p
Oohh.. Gyeongbokgung Palace! Been there during my honeymoon, but miss the ceremony shows and there aren’t any guards then to pose with for photos.
Trees on life support, nice way of conveying the message of saving Gia.
The sausages looks yummy. They make me crave for one now… *slurp*
nice pics you got there..
how much do you spend in total there? cause im planning a trip in korea but have no idea how much i need to bring!
Hope the attic you get is bigger then the one you’re staying in.
Seriously, almost ALL the korean girls I see on web and TV looks like the after-surgery. NO JOKE!
“Obscene meh?” LOL! Shen you really make me laugh… :) But seriously Girl, You look so HOT in these shots. Sheeze… Time for a cold shower here. :)
