I’ve been in Korea for one week now and will be starting school tomorrow. I’ve also come to a conclusion: This is going to be harder than I thought….Korea has sooo many cute things, I just love them all!!! ^^ But for this week, here are some of my favourites:
My new juice cup! The extra bonus is that it came with a pink solid plastic straw and says ‘ HAPPY BEAR When you need someone remember that I’d be there’ and ‘I’m so glad we’ve found each other’. Have you ever seen a cup so happy to see you?
Winning Nanowrimo for my forth time! Pulled through my 50,000 on the plane ride over, so I’m counting it ^^ Sadly, I ended with 52,000 instead of the 60,000 I was aiming for. The minute I got to Seoul I lost my will to write and simply wanted to go exploring instead! Ah well, next year 60,000…I’m coming for you!
Making the ‘shock shock’ hands gesture the same time as Jason, as we heard ‘Shock’ by BEAST in a store as we passed by it. I have no photographic evidence to prove that this happened, but let me assure you, dancing in the streets does occur. (If you’re interested, you can Youtube search ‘Shock’ by BEAST and it’s from 1:18-1:27)
Being offered a small pack of instant keopi (coffee) by the ahjusshi (older gentleman) at my house as I was making my daily rent payment (I opted for paying off my entire rent instead of putting down a $4000 deposit).
Finding a 김수헌 (Kim Soo-hyun) calendar that is 98% a picture of him, and 2% a small row of numbers along the bottom edge. (Do you see the numbers? I barely do either. I don’t know about you, but I call this the best birthday month e-va! ^^)
Finding peanut butter in Korea! This also falls under the ‘everything that broke my heart in Korea’ category. Each jar is almost $7 Canadian ㅜㅜ
Getting these cute Rilakkuma keyboard stickers for my laptop.
Super cute earrings for only 1000원 each! (~$1)
Making it to my first Etude House in real life ^^ (My favourite Korean make-up brand)
FINALLY finding bedding after three nights without. Look how cute that little flower blanket is! It was 9000 won, and I may have a hard time leaving it when I move back to Canada.
Door wall …
…and coloured stairs in Hongdae.
That’s it for now! See you next week ^^
