Korea has always been one of the top countries on my travel list since ten years ago. But now, the Korea bucket list is finally emptying out!

I travelled with my friend who's been to Korea many times. She took me around Seoul, showed me the ropes, became my photographer, translator, ate grilled pork belly with me (she's a vegetarian), and put up with me kekeke. I'm very thankful for her, and I'll treat her to all the greens she can eat LOL.

We arrived in Korea and it was cold! I believe it was in the low 40's. It felt nice at first, but then I started to shake and shiver. I thought the weather wouldn't be that chilly, especially during the daytime. Wrong assumption. I didn't bring enough warm clothes. Luckily, it's not difficult to find inexpensive, quality clothes in Korea. I was able to buy as much warm clothing as my heart and body desired (and needed). So, layers on top of layers. I looked chubby. Though, the cold was so good for my skin.

Myeongdong

The shopping district of Seoul is Myeongdong. This place is pretty neat! All the stores are so unique and inventive with their exterior appearance. I didn't get much pics because I was taking it all in. And of course, I was shopping. There were so much skin care stores, I didn't know which one to pick.

Seoul Searching

Headed to an area in Gangnam called Garosugil to check out a friend's shop. I noticed that this place is niice! Nothing less from the ritzy district of Seoul. You can certainly tell by all the Mercedes, BMWs, and Audis rolling around.

So, my friend told me this was a Vampire cafe or something like that. I can usually spot phoniness, and this place did not seem phony. I think there were real vampires in there. This place gave me the creeps! The people inside were all wearing black, pale skinned, and just staring out. Waiting for someone to come into their store, waiting for someone to feast on! Aahh!

Hangul Museum

I've always had an interest in writing systems. One that I had a strong interest in, and actually studied for 2 years, was the Korean alphabet. I made a point to go to the Hangul museum to learn more about its origin and history. The museum did not disappoint. It had a lot of fun, interactive pieces.

Dongdaemun Design Plaza

Visited the new Dongdaemun Design Plaza, and to an extent, unknowingly strolled through during Seoul Fashion Week. I had my cute outfit picked out, but completely slipped my mind and forgot about it. I was planning on stalking some of my fave celebs, designers and fashion bloggers kekeke. I didn't get to see any of them, though :(
