(Korea) Day 0: Flights & LOLs

Posted on 18-07-2013 | Tags: , , , , , ,

At 2:30AM, I am finally getting around to writing this post. Sorting out which photos to use is a tiring task, hahaha. Anyway, for this series, some photos are ones I have taken on my phone and on David’s camera, which I borrowed for the trip. But most have been taken by my bffl Calene kekeke. Special thanks to her for taking so many pictures, because I always forget to, hahaha.

So let me begin on day 0, June 30. David, Nelson and Pulu had already been in Hongkong for 3 days, I think? Calene, Bryan, Jess, Brandon and I were on a different flight to them because we booked the flights later. While the others stopped over in Hongkong, we would stop over in Singapore for a mere two hours, then on the 1st we would all meet at Incheon Airport as we only arrive a few hours after the HK guys do. Our flight was scheduled for midnight, the dawn of July 1. Calene would come by my house at 8:30PM to give me a lift to the airport.

However, before all that something completely hilarious happened.

The only interesting thing in my life right now is the upcoming trip to Korea, so I’m going to talk about the top places I want to go after endless hours of research and stalking travel blogs, Korean makeup blogs like Koyuki Palace and this amazing website called Cute in Korea which is a goldmine of everything I’m interested when we go.

We’re going to Korea in July, or the end of June, for two weeks.  My friends and I, that is- Bryan, Calene, Brandon, David, Pulu (LOL mad?), Nelson & Jess.  Unfortunately Mikey isn’t coming along since he had a solo trip earlier in the year but yeahhh.   It’s actually my very first trip overseas which makes it incredibly exciting.  A lot of people are like “ARE YOU SERIOUS, YOU’VE NEVER BEEN OVERSEAS BEFORE??” and I just meekly reply “yep.” LOL.

My parent’s have never been interested in traveling.  Or even if they are, they always say they’d rather save money here than go for a trip or something.  I’ve never been to my place of origin, Vietnam, because I was born here and my parents don’t really want to go since they left during the war times as refugees.  Anyway, although they have never been overseas since they came to Australia, I’ve always been interested in traveling.  When I hear people talk about the beautiful places they’ve been I’m intrigued and curious.  So of course, since this is my first trip overseas and I’m a massive planner by nature, I’ve been obsessed with planning the trip along with my friends.  Today I’m going to be talking about the places I particularly want to see.

1.  Myeongdong

As you all know I’m a sucker for makeup and with the plethora of Korean branded makeup available, it’s hard not to fall for the girly colors, the endless bb cream options, the fancy packaging.  I’ll probably do a post on the makeup I’m looking to buy, but I’ll save that for another day.  Anyway, for those that don’t know, Myeongdong is an area in Korea known for it’s makeup stores and various shopping areas.  It’s practically an entire region of makeup stores.
