Tongin Market & Gyeongbokgung

Time to upload my blog again ^^
I haven't been doing some fun or interesting stuff lately, since most of my friends are traveling around Asia (while I'm sitting here in the super-cold Seoul ㅜ.ㅜ) or I just wanted to enjoy staying at home and do nothing~ ㅋㅋㅋ
However last friday, I enjoyed the "old and traditional" side of Korea :)
My lovely Korean friend remembered I haven't been to the Gyeongbokgung (famous royal palace in Seoul) yet, so she took me there.
But before going to the palace, I ate lunch with her at the Tongin Market!
Why do I mention it? Because there is something special about this market ^^ Instead of paying with the normal Korean currency, you exchange your money for some "old" coins (actually they are not ㅋㅋㅋ) and with that money, you can buy your food and fill up your plastic food-thingy (dunno how to call it xD).

 Running Man *_* // and some other....~

I didn't took any pictures of the market itself...I was just so...overwhelmed, what to do and what to eat... :D Actually the market is not that big...but it's still pretty cool :) 

So after eating, we finally headed to the Gyeongbokgung~
Sorry, but I also didn't take thaaaat many pictures ^^" I just enjoyed walking around with my Korean friend, talking and looking around. Didn't wanted to takes pictures of everything, since it all looked pretty much the same (and it's winter..so the scenery is not thaaaat great xD)
But enjoy the few pictures, that I took :D

It was a freakin' cold but good day! ^^ I had a lot of fun eating yummy food and finally saw the Gyeongbokgung ㅋㅋㅋ
A special thank you to my Korean friend 혜윤~ 정말 고마워♥ ㅋㅋㅋ 

Yeah..that's it again :D I just wanted to update my blog again xD
So have a good week, guys! :)

Countdown to a happy new year~

I wish you all a happy new year!! ^-^ 
Hope you guys had a great NYE and started off the new year with a blast! ;)
I'm sure you are wondering how I spend my NYE, which is why I am writing this blogpost.

The last day of 2013 started with me and my friends waking up and having lunch together. After that I went home alone and did nothing.... *höhö~
Then I met with my friends again for dinner and since it was one of my friend's last day here in Seoul, we grabed some coffee together as well. Thanks to my...*cough* awesome 'making-friends-ability' I knew a guy at that coffee shop (커피소년) and we got our first service (it's something for free....). So enjoy the view of this amazing toast with icecream & cream <3

After that, I went to the Countdown Seoul Event at Times Square (no...not the one in New York...it's just a huge mall here in Seoul ㅋㅋㅋ). I was supposed to go with my friend Sophia, but unfortunately she had to cancel our 'date'. However my Belgium friend Lauri was able to join me and we went there together (hello, Lauri~~ ^^).
When we arrived at the Times Square, there were soooooo many people! °o° We were really surprised....but we didn't had to wait for a long time before we were able to enter the mall. The show was amazing ^^ This is how it went:

 Norazo: awesome show & performances! ^^
 Countdown Performance with a funny DJ & weird people with horse-masks :D
Jay Park ft. Elo, Loco and Gray: first performer of the year! It was awesome & I saw a halfnaked Jay <3

Rhythm Power: I didn't know them, but they were good ^^

Dynamic Duo: they were awesome!! They even did two encores! *_*
Idiotape: had a lot of fun listening to them! :) They even mixed songs from f(x) and Glen Check
 Jung Joon Young: great rocker! his performances were great! ^^
 G-Park: Park Myung Soo xDD he was sooo funny & the music was awesome!! really felt like clubbing ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Yeah...so that was my start into the new year ^^ I had a lot of fun & the next day we celebrated the new year with a Mocha cake~

So this is the end of my first blogpost this year~
See you soon (hopefully ㅋㅋㅋㅋ)!
