KOREA; DAY 2

1/16/13

DAY 2: Took a transfer flight and arrived in Jeju! We were warned to wear much thicker because Jeju's wind is really strong and it's extremely cold despite the temperature being higher than certain other parts of Korea.

Started my day with a double shot latte!

I LOVE THIS!! Randomly chose and bought one from their GS25 (similar to 7-11 in SG) and it's so yummy. Not too bitter too! Wish SG's 7-11 sold more of such drinks :( I'd buy it everyday.

And this potato thingy is SO SO GOOD. It's like potato chips but 100 times nicer. If you ever go to Korea, please buy this I promise you won't regret!!!

After filling our tummies... Next destination was the Tangerine Farm!

To pluck some oranges! Hahaha it was so fun getting lost in the farm it's like a maze

DSC01319DSC01322

Each of us were allowed to pluck 2 oranges each. For free! :D Koreans are so generous..

Basically they are just paintings that are meant to look like 3D.. I felt so stupid taking pictures like that but since I was on a trip and everyone was enthusiastically taking pictures... Being a kiasu Singaporean, I just had to. LOL

And YAY! IT STARTED SNOWING! According to our tour guide it was really rare for snow to appear in Jeju but it did! Lucky us!!!

Next... Jeju Folk Village. Also a place where they filmed one of the korean dramas

Such a cute pony but he looks so dirty and poor thing :(

IMG_0095

Pretty cows with brown eyelashes!

IMG_0104

And we were told that this pig... Eats SHIT. Literally like, human poop. It actually lives UNDER a place where humans do their business.. Omg *cringe*

IMG_0102

SNOOOOOWW~~~ Ok I'll now give you the permission to call me a ''sua ku''.

IMG_0117IMG_0132

Next destination: The very famous Yong Duam rock. Also known as, dragon head rock.

IMG_0135

It's an unusual natural rock structure that forms the shape of a ''rising dragon''

Dinner time! Look at all that ginseng.

IMG_0165

Yes, ginseng chicken was our dinner!

IMG_0166

It was really tasty I liked it :D


Last stop of the day: Top Dong shopping street

It's a underground shopping place! Really nice place to shop in winter because it provides so much warmth.

IMG_0167IMG_0168

Jang Kuen Suk is EVERYWHERE. Paradise for a fan girl like me.. Hehe

IMG_0169IMG_0171

Started a little cosmetic shopping! If you don't already know, these are a few Korean brands that are really popular. Will do a haul video at the end of my Korea Trip to share with y'all all the things I bought :)

And I swear by me, Korea is definitely the RIGHT PLACE for all your beauty tools and products. Everything is sooooo cheap and good! I totally understand why all the koreans have such flawless skin.. They don't even need a lot of money to maintain it :( UNFAIR!

IMG_0173IMG_0174

Ended my day with cookies and cream ice cream sandwich from GS25! Hehe
