I tried to avoid Coffee, and picked up boxes of tea. Yummy but way too sweet. Might have to dilute it with something else. S got me the pen last week, and I forgot to grab it from the bag. Isn’t it cute?! Wish I grabbed something else…
It has been awhile since I have done these.
I was on a roll too!
In any case…
I returned from my very mini trip to Toronto (business rather than pleasure). I didn’t do any groceries, so I opted to have McDonalds breakfast. Not a hard choice when it is basically my next door neighbour.
I had lunch with my dear S. We wanted to get coffee, but ended up grabbing Korean lunch boxes, and Starbucks. I bought 3 drinks, and it was basically $20. I died. A tall green frap is about $6.50. Yummy, but I can’t keep up the habit I had in Canada, here, in Korea.
Later that evening, S wanted to drink, so I accompanied here to an izakaya bar. Food was pretty good. Loved the touch of One Piece Characters on the bar.
When I finally arrived home, I had to lay down on the floor, under the AC. It was just too damn hot.
The next day, I was treated to lunch, seeing as I had to pay for drinks last night on my own…due to issues -__- It was yummy going down, but WAY too much MSG. I was nearly passing out an hour later.
I got a mini vacay, so I met up with some of the others to go to Garosugil. We went to Cabogrill. Not too shabby. They have an unlimited meat option, but they don’t like to offer it to ladies, as they never end up eating enough.
We walked about, checked out the Line store. Such cuteness! We got drinks at Godiva, then headed off to Hangang River. Such a beautiful night…though still too humid for a Canadian like me :P
Ate some more BBQ the next evening, after a trip to Costco. It was a different kind of grilled chicken.
Of course we had to kill it with Karaoke singing xD
So that was my week back from Toronto.
It almost feels like that mini trip was a dream. I was so excited to see my kiddies here…I missed them. Funny how attached I’ve become.
6 month milestone is coming up soon…I was amused when I realized that.
Enough out of me. I should attempt to sleep…I figured I would write this up quickly while I couldn’t get to sleep.
Bab Burger, or Rice Burger. Bongousse/봉구스…I was told I HAD to try it. I didn’t read it, and didn’t realize I need to smash it once before eating. A little too much mayo, but it was an interesting experience. I might go back to try another (2500 won/~$3)
You know the places that have sushi on plates that travel around a track? The first time I had it was in Korea. This wasn’t as yummy as my first one, but I still managed to stuff myself…
Went to this beautiful house, north of Seoul. Got to say that it was beautiful, and the air really was different!
I had mentioned that my hair is so frizzy at the ends, and that I miss my mists back home. So POOF! a little while later, a coworker friend of mine, decided to surprise me with these babies. When I first was making the move here, I was very worried I wouldn’t have friends…but boy, am I ever thankful for the ones I’ve been able to make here, even for a short time. #blessed
Taco I had in Seoul. Told my cousin I didn’t want Korean food, so she suggested this place. Quiet, out of the way…and not too bad in terms of taste :)
We went to eat at a Mexican place. My coworkers is Mexican, and said that it was decent enough. The service was absolute crap. Was not impressed at all…But it looks pretty!
As odd as it sounds, I’ve never had jello shots before. These were made with Soju, and were they ever yummy :) One of my coworkers is leaving to go back home, so she made it with the last jello box she had. In that note, jello is crazy expensive here. I wanna bring some and open up a shop! lol
Well, I missed Musical Friday. For once in a really long time.
I also didn’t upload much this week.
Been going through some person stuff, and wasn’t dealing with it very well. But…recovering…even if its a little :) I also had a fun time chatting with the new coworkers, on our little trip for groceries. That made me a happy camper on Sunday as well~
I love that Tim Tams are half the price here. LOVE. I mean, one place had them on sale for about a buck. A BUCK! Insanity…Regret not buying more thought…already finished the first box I bought -____-
There is this sushi place near by. The name basically sounds like, “Buy me sushi”, but it looks quite classy inside. In any case, went with one of the coworkers who will be leaving soon. This meal was never ending. I paid ~$20CAN/20,000won, with absolutely NO regrets. I have to post more pictures soon.
I love eating Ssam. Basically put in a bunch of things into a lettuce leaf. Then you must proceed to shove the thing in your mouth. Always a good time :)
We had some paper work to do. I saw some, but it was about 700 thingies that we had to fill. The plus side was that we got pizza xD
Coffee cafe. Opened up recently, and I really do like the interior. Tres cute. Cheap coffee.
Riding along the Hangang River. Not my first time. I wish I could do it more, but the place we go to is where you can rent for free, and it is a little far. In the distance is the 63 Building. I haven’t actually gone there yet…I need to.
Now much to share this week.
I accidentally ate up my data, and my cousin has yet to refill the new month T__T
The Seoul Friendship Fair was going on last week. I had eaten already, but I liked the concept! I wish I could have checked it out better. There was no Canada though…
This was a real latergram. I had taken it a few weeks back when I met my aunt. It was pretty yummy. I want to go back…but need to go when it isn’t busy.
Warhead candy. The kids apparently like it a lot. I only bought it so I have a prize when the kiddies do something amazing. I personally do not believe in bribing kids with candy unless there is a special occasion. I don’t even like them, so I don’t have to worry that I will eat them all by myself lol
OOTD. I got the package of some clothes. My mother’s friend was able to bring some stuff over for me. Super thankful, as one of the items is a bridesmaid dress. I actually had a dream that it got lost on the way to Canada by regular mail, so I wanted this brought over by someone. One of the other things that I got, was my JEANS!!!! I had packed a few when I was coming over…but started taking one out after another, when I thought my bags were too heavy. Once I got to Korea…I realized I had taken out all my jeans!!! I was so sad :( It was great to finally be in them. My pants felt sooooo good. Super skinny…but felt great xD
One of the gates in Korea. Always really pretty to look at. Prettier when it is lit up at night~
Coffee is a tad expensive here, so I figured I would try out this baggie coffee. Not the yummiest…But the coffee ice cream bar was lovely :)
Absolutely love these markers. Fine tip, and cheap-ish. I tried them out when I was in Korea in 2010, and have loved them ever since. I like the green ones, but I ended up getting the orange as green was OOS. Stickers were for my little kids.
I told you that McDonalds was deadly…seriously. When you include the elevator travel, I can walk within 2 minutes… -_______-
I met up with my cousin today. I had asked her back in April, but she was really busy. It was great to chat and catch up. Nice to rant too lol. Anyway, isn’t the stream lovely? Cheonggyecheon stream/청계천 would have been nice to walk, but it was pretty humid. We basically speed walked to the nearest Starbucks :P
