Unrecognizable. But in a good way.
Third time’s a charm? I only say so because I failed to achieve my goal of taking higher quality photos on my first 2 visits to Korea. Now I guess I finally got it right on the 3rd time!
Here we are getting locked on to love at the N Seoul Tower.
Like the DMZ, we also weren’t able to visit Everland in our first trip to Korea. But it seems, we really do get a happy ever after in the end.
Wasn’t able to go to the Korea Demilitarized Zone on our first visit to South Korea, and so we made sure to make it happen this time.
When I travel, museums are always on my list of to-visit places. Oh how I just love museums. I get all ecstatic inside, like a kid in a candy shop! 😀
Left very early in the morning and we drove 5 hours to get to this beaut at the opposite side of South Korea (opposite to Incheon), the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Seoraksan National Park.
You might have seen some of the stunning, romantic scenery on this island in your favorite Korean dramas, and I never thought I’d actually get to go there in my lifetime.
I was back in Korea in less than a year. How even more blessed can I be to get to attend and perform at a wedding too?
I mentioned in my Korea 2015 article that Korea was never really a country I wanted to visit. But my first time there changed everything. Unexpectedly, in less than a year, I was back. Indeed, things really are sweeter the second time around.
A couple years ago, we, the New Life Sounds Choir met a Korean pastor, Pastor Yang, who frequently visits Cebu for missions. He invited us to visit Korea on a music ministry mission. Well, it seemed like everything came into place, and so we did.
Many of the ladies in our group wanted to go cosmetics shopping. Perfect timing because there was a cosmetics exhibit going on.
A newly-built city on 600 hectares of reclaimed land, Songdo is aesthetically very similar to Singapore and our Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Replicas of architectural hallmarks, including New York City’s Central Park and Venice’s waterways, are in incorporated.
I loved this place right here! It was like Santa Monica pier all over again!
After Sudoguksan, we proceeded to Incheon Chinatown for lunch.
Part of the mission of our trip was to immerse ourselves in Korean culture. So we went to this museum in Incheon, situated on top of a hill — Sudoguksan Museum of Housing and Living.
On our first morning, the shower heater was having some problems, so we had no choice but to take a bath in freezing water.
I never thought I’d actually be able to visit Korea, ever. It’s a place I am somehow quite uninterested about. The least I can think of. Add to that, the extreme influence of Korean pop culture (not a fan. Well, except for some soap operas) on a lot of Filipinos. Sorry to say this, but because of that, I had actually grown kinda irritated by the idea of anything Korean. Read on to know how that sourness turned to love.
