Low battery is not an excuse soon

Smart phone era. What is the largest issue for smart phone users, other than wifi? Possibly battery life?

I would love to say that you are lucky to be living in Seoul as it has announced that 5 outdoor recharging stations will be set up along the Cheonggyecheon stream. Drawing current from a collection of hydroelectric turbines embedded in the stream and will be fully charge in 2-3 hours.

If this project became a hit, it will be rolled out nationwide. A rather clever and eco friendly way of utilizing earth’s resources in my opinion, next time, there’s no more low battery excuses.

Double flavor drink.

Throwback.

You’ve probably tried or heard of sweet and sour rice or sweet and sour fish, but have you come across with a sweet and sour drink?

Not too long ago, or maybe a year ago, I saw a post about this unique little drink. 1 bottle, 2 flavors, unmixed. I thought it was really cute and decided to hunt for it in the convenience shops. Seriously, I’m not sure how do they drink this, is it 1 flavor at a time, or 2 at the same time? Or is this designed specially for couples? What do you think?

The grape juice was good, it was sweet and a faint scent of grape fills your mouth upon taking a sip. Maybe I’m quite a fan of grape flavored food and beverage, so I really liked it.

While the grape flavored juice is indeed delicious, orange was slightly strong but sour. My eye twitched a couple of times from the sourness, maybe not my favorite. Note to you, drink it cold for better taste.

Although half of it wasn’t very pleasing to my taste buds, but I’m eagerly waiting for another chance to try it again.

A sunset at Gwanghwamun Square

A calm and beautiful evening at Gwanghwamun Square, after a long and tiring walk at Cheonggyecheon stream, and finally felt like taking a rest while looking out at the busy streets, minus the stress and tenseness which used to catch up with our life without fail.

Surrounded by modernized high rise buildings implanted with large LCD displays, each broadcasting different commercial ads, it makes you forget about the historical Gyeongbok Palace that lies just at the end of Gwanghwamun Square.

2 different sides of Seoul at one single location, definitely an interesting combination between the new and traditional, this is how I could define the city as. Maybe this is one of the reason that makes me fell in love with this country, or rather, this city itself.

A selfie from abroad

It’s been a day or 2 since I had posted something, work has been catching up too much lately and causing me to feel really tired for the past couple of days, so I took most of the opportunity to get some rest whenever I could.

So as an apology (and a greeting) to everyone, I thought that I could drop a little “selfie” of myself which was taken while walking on the 3rd floor of Ssam Jie Gil in Insadong.

Though working people might not like the weekdays, but don’t fret, as it will only ruin your mood. Have a great week ahead!

Can you……

Playing the role as the heart of downtown Seoul, this place is well known to tourists and the locals.

The monuments of 2 highly respected historical figures were erected here, while being surrounded by one of the first and oldest palace to be built in Seoul during the Joseon Dynasty, making this area a very meaningful place to be visited. Do you know the name of this place?

Not too far away is a beautiful stream known as Cheonggyecheon Stream. Can you somehow spot the Spring in this picture?
