Seoul Day 6 ! (part one)
we did sooo many things on Day 6 , so i will be splitting it into 2 parts , please bear with me and i am sorry cos i know a lot of you are waiting for the project skinny post :(
decided to go around the City Hall Area on our last day !
walking there …
if i’m not mistaken , this is a bank . wtf why all banks in Korea so nice one ??
passed by Deoksugung ! wanted to go in but admission wasn’t free , so my brother said there’s no point going in since we already visited a palace and palaces are more or less the same .
outside Deoksugung !! hahah so cute , they knit things for the trees to wear :3
also outside Deoksugung ! this handicapped man who was so so talented ! even when he’s missing one arm , he’s still able to create beautiful things . makes me reflect on my own country , where you see handicapped people begging for money all over the place instead of TRYING to do something , even non-handicapped ones … no offence .
some of his works ! we wanted to buy one with bible verses but it was too expensive :(
moving on …
a picture of me ! hahaha
City Hall !
pretty flowers by the street !
coolest thing ever ! hahaha statues of a family , looking like they’ve been compressed . i don’t quite know how to describe it :x
floral sculpture opposite the street of the little gnome family ! <3
somehow the City Hall area doesn’t look very korean to me , it looks a bit .. European ? hahha idk
one more of me ! :D
going back on the route where we came from ..
pretty tiles on the road ! look at the third row , there’s the Deoksugung and the bank i mentioned at the beginning of this post
lunch at a small cosy restaurant ! so small i could barely take a pic of it haha
mom’s kimchi noodles
bro’s kimchi fried rice
my ramen . HAHAHHA IT LOOKS SO SAD . but its ok , since i love instant noodles anyway :9
was eating halfway when we heard loud music coming from outside , and lo and behold , there was a parade !!
rushed out to take photos of the parade haha
so after lunch , we went to witness the parade outside Deoksugung !
halfway through the parade they let us go in and take pictures with the actors ! at first we were all a little shy cos the gesture itself seems so sampat haha , but here goes nothing !
wan en then picked up the courage to ask one of the actors if she could selca with him HAHAHAH . and he agreed ! so i also buay paiseh go ask
yay nicest “palace guard” ever !
more pretty flowers :D
after that , we planned to visit Cheonggyecheon stream !
Cheonggyecheon is a 5.8 km creek flowing west to east through downtown Seoul, and then meeting Jungnangcheon, which in turn connects to the Han River and empties into theYellow Sea. (from wikipedia haha)
on our way there we saw these cute umbrellas hanging from the sky via wires haha . this was outside the subway station i think !
me and my brother ! (here you go , for those who are fans of him :p)
