I was soooo pissed off at Asul today (on a Sunday! Lord, pls forgive me). Let's just leave out the "why" question, shall we? Cos you'd probably side with Asul if I told you.lol And the thing is when I'm depressed or something, I have this habit of cleaning and fixing stuff at home.
I have probably turned the house upside down today. I started off in the bathroom. After that, I vacuumed and mopped the floor from the living room to the bedroom. Next, I scrubbed the tiles in the veranda. And then as if it's not enough, I headed to the kitchen sink and scrubbed it as well. I had the clothes spinning in the washing machine,too while I was doing all these chores. By the time I was almost done, the frown on my face was gone and I felt its muscles have also relaxed. That's when I thought, "NOW I'm feeling better." I turned around and saw the refrigerator as if it was saying "How about me?" and I thought "I'm back to my old self, I'd just deal with you next time, ok?!lols"
For the record, I'm not used to doing this much on a weekend!haha It's far different from how I imagine a weekend should be. But hey, it's not that bad. If not for me being pissed off, I wouldn't be this productive:)
We just had dinner by the way! and Asul rewarded me with sam gyup sal! :)
And so on "Children's" day, we went to Ttukseom Resort which is along Han Gang or Han River for a picnic! The place was uber crowded as expected but it wasn't that hard to find a spot to spread our mat cos there's plenty of room (kahit mag-cart wheel ka pa!kk)
Here's the view of the place from the subway station...
It's been awhile since the last time we were here and so I was surprised to see this huge pipe just as we got out of the station...
The tunnel was full of exhibits and stuffs specifically about Han River. But the one below was for Hangeul or korean alphabet. It's a landscape installation showing Hangeul in 9 different fonts.
And hey, this is us! Taken in front of the huge installation above. We were trying to make a heart shape using our arms (the korean way..haha) but it looked more like a b*tt. So we just settled with our cutie cutesy pose. lol
The first time I attended this kind of party was that of my korean friend's baby, which was in an Italian restaurant somewhere in Gangnam-gu, Seoul. This time, it was in a banquet hall in Gyeonggi-do. And like in any other birthday parties, it was attended by relatives and friends. What made it quite different though was that my friend, her hubby and baby were all wearing "hanbok" or Korean traditional clothes! (but it's not like that all the time... people choose whatever they want to wear:)
The place was decorated with white and blue for the birthday boy. There were fruits and 'dol tteok' (돌 떡) or rice cake on the table at one end of the banquet hall~ the family stood here during the short program after the guests had all eaten~
Can i just say that my friend is one of the most artistic people I know?hehe She made most of the stuffs here especially for her baby's birthday..there was also a video presentation she made herself... ok, now im so envious,hehe The boxes on the right were the giveaways which were two painted cute mugs~
And the highlight of the event was the "Doljabi" or the "grabbing event" where they let the baby pick one among different kinds of objects foretelling the baby's future.
We went to Yeouido for the cherry blossom festival weeks ago (and when I say weeks ago, it means that white petals are long gone by now,hehe).
It was my first time in Yeouido (yey!). The place is the "Manhattan of Seoul" being the financial center of the country. You can see the 63 Building- Seoul's tallest building, MBC and KBS- television companies and Samsung and LG headquarters here:)
Taken in front of our apartment building~ it was kinda cloudy to start with but thank God it was sunny the rest of the day~
First step in Yeouido~ (pityur kagad!:)
one of the recycled-stuffs-turned-to-art thingy we saw as we were walking along~
Ji Hyun Woo and Lee Bo Young of the drama Birth of the Rich in KBS2, which has just finished by the way. You can watch it here.
It will be another year before I see this again. Not the dog, i mean, the cherry blossoms,haha
I just lurrrv spring! :)
