Places Visited: Myeongdong; N. Seoul Tower
FINALLY. The launch of my Korea photos taken last year's summer. I know, it's already a year. But Korea was really special to me and I didn't want to rush the release of the photos without thinking through how I would do it. So I've decided that I shall do a diary version first where I show you guys photos in general + my thoughts, and then separate posts focusing specifically on food places. So for those who can't wait for more details on where to dine, drop me an email or comment and I'll get back to you! :)
So anyway, Korea is just such a beautiful place to have a holiday. It's still by far my favourite holiday maybe because of how culturally different it is from home. I love listening to the Koreans and trying to pick up phrases to learn. Everyone's really polite even though we don't speak the same language. Korean food is goddamn amazing. Shopping is brilliant because I'm in cosmetics haven. BUT, the summer weather is crazily hot. I turned a few shades darker thanks to the sun and my lack of habit in applying sunblock. So I guess I just look burnt in all the photos. Korea is also the place I first encountered ginormous watermelons (I know I'm a mountain tortoise). And I'll never forget that tiring climb up endless slopes and stairs to get to the cable car which brings us to the N.Seoul Tower (hence my sad face in one of the pictures above).
On a separate note, I'm back in Singapore and I can't wait to get out again. I'm having a weather shock right now since just yesterday, I was facing average temperatures of 13 degrees. I feel like a burnt dehydrated kangaroo.
On a separate, separate note, I'll be flying to KL this Thursday and I'm secretly hoping that the political scene there is stable now. I don't want to be caught in a protest for sure!
