It's time to go home!!! Look what we all get, we have 2 extra boxes of KimChi on the side waiting for us! Crazy.. We came with less than half full, and went back with fully loaded suitcases!!!
The airport is so nice and clean, very spacious, bright and comfy.
The "DUNKIN' DONUTS" in Korea airport looks so delicious!!! SO many choices!!!
Very stylish ice-cream/ coffee shop!
We spent our 2 hours of waiting time here!!! Since the whole duty-free shops in the airport are ALL high-end designers! Plus we spent ALL the $$$ shopping in Korea, so we have no $$$$ left to shop even more so we decided to experience some of the Korean cultural. We can do 4 different types of cultural experiences there, but we both choose to paint the fan?!?!?! WHY~~~
It look SOOooo long!!! Eventually, it took us almost 2 hours, because they use watercolors. It dried SO slow!!! and it's hard to control due to too much water instead of the color. :(
Damn!!! They even had a parade in the airport with the tranditional Korean clothing walking around the airport to provide people to take pictures with them?!?! Really thoughtful and different.
Our lunch, the hotdog looks so good, we couldn't resisit to get one although we are going to get the airplane meal soon! and~~~STARBUCKS!!!
My first Starbucks since I get back to Asia!!! I've been drinking the "bubble tea" almost every day!!! So I was so excited to drink starbucks!!! ;P~~~ I forgot how good it taste~~~LOVE!!!

Today we went to "KimChi School" to learn how to make KimChi!!! :) The teacher was explaining how to, and what we'll need in order to make KimChi. She said there are like 360 different kind of KimChi here in Korea?!?!?! How amazing is that??? I wish I can get to try all of em'! (I love KimChi!!!) The last pic on the right was the KimChi that I made! How does it look??? :)))
We were preparing..everyone gets an apron to avoid the spices spout out! ;)
Then we went to try on the Traditional Korean Costume! It's not too complicated, it's pretty easy and simple to wear. Megan and I ended up getting the similar color costume. ;p She said I looked Japanese??? Really??? Maybe..Because of my hair color???
Asians~ Asians~ Asians~ Can never stop taking photos of selves! ;P
Dinner & lunch remix.. The bibibap and the ox-tail soup taste pretty good.
Vintage dress, vintage studded belt, cross mesh legging from the street vendor in Taiwan, lace-up booties, YSL shoulder bag, random jewelry.We were at the "Cheong Wa Dae", it's the presidential palace. We went to the museum there and get to learn a little bit of the history from Korea! ;P
The coffee shop at the museum! I love the interior design, it's clean, cosy and spacious.
I am not sure what this robot, but they said after 10 years here in Korea, you don't need to do anything the robot will maneage everything for you. Even the robot can scan your mood and pick a movie for you to watch, and they'll do all the house cleaning and cooking for you. How amazing is that??? I want one!!!
Afterwards we went to "Ewha Women University" for shopping!!! We were so rush, we shopped like no tomorrow in one hour and 10 mins time and bought almost everything that we thought looks nice from the first-sight... So bad.. There was no time to think over and hesitate! We don't want to regret! ;p It's the paradise for shopping!!! We both kept complaining that we wish we'll have more time, and decided that we need to come back to Korea again only for shopping!!! ;P
I'll show you guys what I bought on this trip later..;)

Today's theme of the trip was "The sightseeing of Korean Soap Opera background"?!?!?! So we first went to the little fishing village from this KSP called "Bluelove". Nothing there really, but it's popular and became one of the sightseeing place somehow you have to go here in Korea, although I am not sure why?!
Then we went to "Seoraksan National Park". The weather SUCK ASSsssss!!! None stop raining!
It's annoying to go to this kind of sightseeing spot in the raining day, kind of spoiled our pleasure.
I guess they believe in Buddhism. We have lots of this kind of huge Buddha in Taiwan as well.
We thought the name of this bridge was funny.. It reads to tell people to cleanse the heart of your sin!!! :) So we took a picture as our commemorate. :P
One of the temple inside the park. We wore the same jacket that we bought together on day 1. :)
The mountain view looks so nice there! Feels like a Asia wonderland. :P
We thought this was funny, we can't read (don't understand) what these Korean signs mean, we were joking maybe the one point at me or my friend means "Toilet" or "#$@%&" whatever. ;P
We saw this "I LOVE Taiwan" flag while we were waiting for the boat to "Nami Island". :))) Visit Taiwan, plzzzzzzz!!!
We took the boat on the way to "Nami Island".. One of the most famous/popular KSO called "Winter Sonata" ever filming spot.
This is Kimchi's home!!! Kimchi live inside!!! :))) Kimchi need to live under certain temperature, so they need to live inside these houses. ;P So funny, it looks like the primitive man's house. :p
This is their pond to make a pledge. :) So how it works..You stack the rocks as high as you can and don't let it fall..
I love this!!! Could be a post card i think. ;p It's for all the lover who came here together!
This Buddha was lucky to have two girls kissing him. ;P
I love these cell phone accessories, so cute!!! It's easy to DIY! You can cut a long strip piece of felt and cut it into fringe shape, cut one extra strip of felt at the same width of the fringe and sandwich it in the middle. Then roll it into a cylinder shape, and glue it to stable it.. Tahda.. DONE!!! :) Easy..No?
We went to "Myeong-dong" for dinner!!!
OMG..This was a heaven on earth!!!!!!! So delicious!!!! Can't control my saliva just by thinking of this!!! One of the best meal I liked by far on this trip. :)
I wore: Jacket bought in Korea, vintage plaid shirt, 1010 motor jeans, vintage studded belt, YSL shoulder bag, lace-up booties, random knit hat.
