    Korea (26-27 Jun 2011)

    Belated entry

    Dorm room

    Settling in to the Seoul life after a late night, we went to walk around our dorm area and had this traditional grill at a nearby shop for a late lunch.

    After the delicious lunch, we continued our exploration and came to the subway station where we decided to buy this Korean tourist version of ‘ezlink’ prepaid card – Seoul Citypass+, for travelling around on subways and buses. It comes with some tourist discount coupons for us to use at some attractions.

    Time seemed to pass rather fast (Korean time is one hour ahead of Singapore time), we went back to dorm area and started to look for dinner place. We had our second Korean meal – cold noodles with very spicy kimchi sauce. The spiciness did help as I am not a big fan of very cold soup/noodles, however for some of my friends who can’t take very spicy food, they had a hard time eating their dinner.

    After dinner and a few more loitering around, we returned for our beauty sleep for the next big day – Start of summer school.

    The next day – Orientation

    Orientation programmes and such, we were welcomed by the lively Korean students. we had our Korean-canteen experience with the use of the lunch-ticket-vending machine before we proceed to collect our lunch. Our summer study programme is a 3/4 days study programme, each day is around 3 hours of lecture for each module. Since we are only taking 1 module, we had plenty of time to enjoy Seoul.

    Below are some of the pictures taken while going around.

    Korea (25 Jun 2011)

    Yup this is a recount of my first overseas adventure with fellow coursemates to Seoul, Korea for a month of summer programme in Sungkyunkwan University (성균관대학교, SKKU). Hence I will be posting some of the pictures that we have taken during our time there.

    The day started with us heading to Changi airport, taking Cathay Pacific to transit in Hong Kong International Airport and then to Seoul. The first aircraft was so much comfortable than the others as it had the new and improved seats as shown below.

    Anyway, sadly my first visit of HK was limited to the airport transit premises and then hours later, finally reached Incheon International Airport. After the collection of our bags, we took the airport limousine service to Koart Ville, which is located near to Sungshin Women’s University subway station.

    The entire bus journey took around an hour or so and it was raining when we alighted with our bags. Our hostel was a little hard to find, and the rain and our heavy bags seriously dampened our spirits. We finally found our hostel after dragging bags to a wrong place, and a young couple led us to the right location. It was close to 12am by the time we checked in. Dumping our bags, I went out for a late supper at this 24 hours KFC near our hostel despite being tired and hungry.. Hunger wore out you see…

    Day 2 will be posted soon…
