I am sad to report that this will be the last post for the Korea part of my travels. The next one will be more for my experience in Hong Kong and Macau. These posts will be with and without my two bffs that had to return back to Toronto for work.
January 17, 2014 - We went to a seaweed emporium to taste test and buy the seaweeds that we liked, a super large ginseng store where we were tempted to buy Korean Ginseng, a giant skin care store where we were introduce to a brand called UBG, a casino + duty free mall where I hoarded the aloe gels, and finally Lotte World an amusement park where we just pigged out and explored.
|돌쌰부 - shabu shabu type with pork and veggies. This was a good soup|
|비빔밥 - bibimbap. The portion sizes was much smaller than ones in Toronto, but they were the perfect size for us!|
|The rooms of the Korean Palace. Just like in the dramas!|
|A type of game played in the olden days for aim. Reminds me of the games at fairs/carnivals.|
|These are kimchi jars! That's what kimchi was made in during the older times.|
|Sitting on these giant steps. Too bad I don't have a servant to help take my shoes off ;)|
|Super cute piggie <3|
|Wax figure...scared the crap out of me because it looks so real! There were wax figures in a historic part of Lotte World. I think it might have been the "adult" part. lol|
|This was the place we were told to tell taxi drivers to bring us if we were ever lost while we explored MyeongDong|
|Okay, so I couldn't resist having a picture with a cardboard cut out of GD...sue me.|
|Little baby bboong-oh bbangs! Fish shaped cookies with custard or red bean fillings. Super yummy.|
|Soon-dae! Korean style sausage. Served with innards and special spicy salt.|
|We ended up ordering a kimbap as well (korean sushi type thing) and we couldn't finish all our food. =\|
The next time you read a Chrissy Travels blog will be the section of my vacation where I am in Macau. Keep in mind that I travelled to Macau twice. Once with all four of us, and another time just myself and one bff to visit my family. I apologize for any time gaps, but that's just how I roll ;)
