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 while waiting the clock to hit 5:30 pm. Or in my case here in Japan, 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.
It was just a fun, short vacation in Seoul and Nami Island. Clearly I was getting bored living alone and went crazy with house plants.
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. Although the free testers are the real deal. I had planned to buy a foundation in Korea as my previous one was already 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.
However I got a new foundation here in Japan so problem solved!
Here are some pictures from the trip 🙂
Day One: Cafe hunting and quick Myeongdong tour
Day Two: Hanbok and Myeongdong (my favourite!)
