On May 16, 2006, I bid (temporary) goodbye to Irina and also Seoul, and then headed for Jeonju. My strongest reason for visiting that capital city of North Jeolla Province was no others than its food. It was fascinating enough … Continue reading Hi Jeonju!
Speaking of craving samgyeopsal on my previous post triggers the appearance of another topic. It’s about that one nice manner that gained my attention during trip to South Korea every time I dined with my Korean friends. Okay, this blog direction is slowly becoming ‘Yuna’s 12 Days South Korean Random Review’. 😀 I am a person without a complex table manner or etiquette, so that one gesture that will be revealing here was noticed by me due to that reason. It was every time I had meals with my Korean friends; they always prepared and arranged the spoon and chopsticks … Continue reading Thought on the Road; One Nice Manner
Yuna is back to diligent writing mode. In seconds, my fourth first experience in South Korea will be revealed; playing with dogs. Yes, you read it right. I know so many people, few of which are close relatives of mine, who can’t live without their pets, especially dogs or cats, people who are very different with me. Even my sister was sobbing badly when she had to be separated from her dearest dog because of one reason, which I have never understand well why she had to be like that (am I sounded so cold now?) Please don’t get me … Continue reading Walking Busker and Watching Barry
“It’s Friday!!! “Please join our…” “Let’s the party starts! “Yeah, Friday!” “Party time!” Those are the same repeated messages that I’ve always received for more than one month after I came back from South Korea. I’ve never been a party goer, even when I was much younger, but I keep on receiving those messages since I’m part of the Seoul’s couchsurfing’s group chat and the invitation is the group’s weekly schedule on every Friday night. Unless I visit Seoul, I can’t join the meeting and all the group members already know it, however I still enjoy what they share because … Continue reading A Whole Night Out in Hongdae on Friday Night
When mostly Korean Couple spent May 14, 2016 with roses, I spent that day with friends and food. I found it was romantic as changing roses (a made up excuse). 😀 Irina and I skipped breakfast, so we decided to have lunch together like what I’ve told on previous post, but before having (extremely) late lunch, we promised to visit War Memorial of Korea. The War Memorial of Korea is a massive building with a helpful digital guide. I couldn’t say that visiting a war memorial was pleasing as visiting palaces or other historic places, it have always given different … Continue reading More of May 14, 2016 in Seoul
Do you know that there is celebration on 14th day on each month in South Korea? I caught a glimpse of an article about it right before I flew to South Korea. I read it somewhere, but I didn’t give any attention, until I came to Seoul on a day before, May 13th. Since my first day in Seoul was messed up, I only hung out at night for dinner and brief strolled along the side of Cheonggye Stream (청계천 Cheonggyecheon). On the next day, I spent almost whole day outside, which was on Saturday, May 14th, 2016. When my … Continue reading Seoul, May 14th, 2016
Oh my June, there are so many instant foods in this world that I don’t know exist, let’s say instant rice. Yeee, now you know that I’m lack of general knowledge. Thank to one of my treasured best friends who finally decided to write her own blog (and I’m delighted by it) mentioning about instant bibimbap which made me remember about similar thing that I had back in Seoul; instant rice. picture I found about this when Irina and I about making our last breakfast together. For few days when I stayed at her home, she’d always prepared breakfast, so … Continue reading Instant Rice
On my previous post, I said that I did a lot of new things on my first visit to South Korea (I think I’ll do more), one of which was couchsurfing. After giving much thought whether I should do it or not, I finally did it. I’d never had the confidence before, to stay and share anything with someone that I’d never known. However, I gave it a try in South Korea and I enjoyed it; everything that had happened during my staying with three different hosts. My first host was a university student in Seoul. At first I worried … Continue reading A Slice of Cheesecake’s Story in Seoul
