HELLO SEOUL

I predict I will be crazy busy and tired in Korea, so I shall update frequently but with short descriptions only. This way, I'll remember the day-by-day events without being too exhausted from updating my blog, heh.

DAY 1 (26/6):

Pastel skies from above the clouds omg luv it.

The airplane food was surprisingly good! Fluffy omelette, tasty hashbrown, soft and chewy bread roll. IMPRESSED WITH KOREA AIR'S FOOD.

First meal in Korea - tasteless abalone porridge in a seemingly bottomless bowl. Threw more than half of it away, sigh.

Egg bread! Blur photo but I don't care. First street food I bought and it's not bad! The bread is pleasantly sweet, but I wish the yolk was less powdery.

There are coffee chains everywhere. I bought 2 cups of iced coffee within my first day here, sigh. Quite stupid to waste my money on coffee when I can spend it on other things like Korean food and makeup right??!?!

Failed 'follow me to' photo as we trudged up the hill to N Seoul Tower.

I'm on the top of the world~

The couple culture in Korea is really no joke hahaha. Couples everywhere. And all these lovey dovey stuff... sigh #foreveralone.

There's this machine in N Seoul Tower that lets you "take photos with stars" haha. You must pay 5,000won to print them, but we are cheapskates so we just took photos of the screen.

Caught the sunset from the top! So pretty, the sun was bright red. 

Travel buddies on my first day here!


My partner-in-crime for the next 6 weeks!
Shared a kimbap with Nichol for dinner, but it has so much vegetables omg how am I going to survive Korea??!?! Spicy food + so much vegetables, sigh it's time to grow up and stop being a whiny picky eater. 

It's been a really hectic day. Had some problems with my name on the flight ticket (didn't indicate my Chinese name so I had to request for a name change), landed at 8.40am, missed the 9am shuttle bus, showered once I reached the hostel, rushed off to meet Nichol and her new friends, walked around Myeong-dong, tried to get my SIM card but realised I needed a passport in order to do that, made an impromptu trip to N Seoul Tower and also bought some necessities from Daiso.

Damn, this time last night, I was just unpacking from Arts Camp and reeling from camp withdrawals (which explains the social media spams about Arts Camp, oops).

Orientation tomorrow, let's hope it'll turn out well!
