Just to Inform You That I'm AliveAugust 07, 2012
I'm such a great blogger, right now I am blogging and reporting some of stuffs instead of going out *praises myself, wtf*
No la, in fact I am waiting my friend, Niken, to pick me up. She's currently staying in Seoul and she will be bringing me to Dongdaemun!
Internet is really fast in here, and I can connect to wifi most of the times, everywhere!! o.o
That's why I bring my laptop, cos I will be uploading vlog each day [I hope..] so you guys can experience Korea with me too ^.^
But here are some pics from my phone first
I arrived in Korea around 7am, but had to take bus to Seoul, so I actually arrived in my hotel around 10am. Then I couldn't check in, I had to wait until 2 pm, so I wandered around Myeogndong, with my heavy laptop and DSLR inside my bag, and managed to look around and snap some photos
What I love and respect the most about Seoul is that their city is really really clean, and although the weather is really sunny and hot, it's not polluted at all. I get a little breakouts because of the change weather, but I think it's ok
It's quite crowded right now, and I had chance to visit a lot of beauty stores such as Holika Holika, Etude House, Face Shop, Innisfree, and others.. They sell a lot of cheap stuffs o.o And If I mean cheap, it really is!!!
I once saw an eye and lip remover only 2USD from apieu brand!! MAD CRAZY!!
But unlike cosmetics, clothes are quite expensive. See, even if it's on sale, it's still 29.000 won, which is around 30USD -_-" I saw cheaper stuffs like 10-15USD but they're very average
I am going to Dongdaemun soon, cos I heard clothes in there is much cheaper
I also give myself a big applause for trying out Bibimbap!! I never want to eat spicy food nor I can stand it. But when you're in Rome, do it as Romanians! So I always try to eat local food as best as I can!!! I got bibimbap for 6000 won set, around 6USD. including kimchi and water, for free. I thought I had to pay first then I asked in mandarin "mian fei ma?" & the staff said yes lol
Why I spoke mandarin?
Duh nobody speak english in hereeee T____T
Everytime I talk in english they run awayyyyy and they dont want to bother helping me either!!
And probably saw my face, they asked me "ke yi qiang guo yi ma?" [can you speak mandarin?] and so I said "yi tian tian la" [a little bit..] and so all the koreans keep talking in mandarin rapidly until I went ajsdkasjdasdakls @____@
And so everyone kept talking to me in mandarin, and I feel I am not in Korea at all, but in Taiwan wtf
I should have learned mandarin better. I cannot survive in Asia with english, Mostly they use mandarinnnn T___T
That's my lunch!!!
The portion is really big!!! I regret for not sharing it but buy one portion instead. I didnt finish them up, mom would go mad at me lol
I will be trying ddokbogi and jajangmyun later, I heard they're very popular!!
After 2 pm I can check in and take a shower, finished dolling up, and now waiting for my friend!!
Better finish everything first and leave soon, so I have something to blog and share about to you all!!
