Brrrr… it’s cold this time of year in Korea. I’m here for a whole week! Staying at the Ritz Carlton in Gangnam-gu, Seoul. The christmas light decor is still up and gorgeous with stars on the trees and twinkling lights everywhere! So cute! I took some pics last night when we headed out for dinner after checking in…but guess what? I was so excited I grabbed my camera and forgot to put in my memory card. So I was snapping away taking pics of our curry dinner at cute little CocoCurry, the hotel and the city lights around Seoul only to find out there’s nothing when I got back to the hotel. boo!

Today: My first day in Korea exploring Seoul all by myself while my hubby works – hmmm…what to do? Shopping! of course! Took the Subayway (very clean by the way!) down to Coex Mall. What a Gigantic mall with so much stuff. I must have walked 15-20 miles… I’m not sure how far I walked but my feet hurt like I did. Did I mention everything in Korea is so CUTE! Cute little shops with jackets, scarfs, rings, earrings. Bookstores and novelty shops with wonderful trinkets and they are all so cute! Yeah I can’t over emphasis cute. I wanted to buy everything…but I have a limited budget…so I had to refrain myself. =)

I’m back at the hotel. Time to put in some work hours before my hubby is gets back from the office. But I’m feeling sleepy and might just take a nap. I don’t know if I’m tired from the cold, shopping or jet-lag, but I’m sleepy. See ya’ll tomorrow.


A quickie before heading out for New Years Eve! Have a safe and fantastically fun night everyone. It’s been a wonderful year full of ups and downs, but looking forward to the new year with great enthusiasm!
