Overdue Seoul post
It’s Monday and to be honest, I’m still recovering from my Monday blues. Having Monday blues is the worst thing. But I have trained myself to take it slow and just be present in the moment by telling myself the mantra “this will pass” “this will pass” while waiting the clock to hit 5:30 pm. Or in my case here in Japan, “slightly” past 5:30pm.
Earlier this month, I took paid leave to join my friends in their short vacation in Korea. We were there for 3 days. I went separately because I sort of decided last minute on joining the trip. I’ve wanted to write a blog post on this but I was too excited to start my Youtube channel. Yes, I finally started a Youtube channel where I put my personal videos so I can watch them when I leave Japan one day… so I focused on editing videos instead of my blog (i’m sorry it won”t happen again)(yeah right…)
It was just a fun, short vacation in Seoul and Nami Island. I went there for two things. Food and cosmetics. Surprisingly, I didn’t spend that much on cosmetics as I find myself not wearing much makeup lately. In Myeongdong, the infamous shopping street aka skincare heaven, I only grab a few skincare product and a lipstick. But boy, the free testers are the real deal! I had planned to buy a foundation in Korea as my previous one was alreade nearing the expiry date but sadly they don’t produce the right shade for tanned/olive skin. Honestly, I was quite disappointed because considering how gigantic their cosmetic industry is, surely it wouldn’t be a big problem to create a few shades for tanned people right? 🙁
However I got a new foundation here in Japan so problem solved!
