Winter in Seoul – Day 4: Lotte World and leaving Seoul

*extremely picture-heavy post

It has been three weeks since I last wrote a post regarding our trip to Seoul, and it did not help that this post concerned two things that made me unenthusiastic: Lotte World and leaving South Korea. From Simone Handbag Museum, we took the traingfrom Sinsa Station going to Jamsil station, which is connected directly to Lotte World.

Lessons from a bus ride

Just kidding. I won’t be giving a mock epiphany over a bus ride, the same way an article of a ditzy girl from a school in Katipunan had gone viral earlier this week and received lots of criticisms.

Anyway, I had an unfortunate incident before leaving the house and tripped and midly sprained my left ankle. I then chose not to take the MRT out of fear of taking another wrong step and rolling down the stairs to see the end of me.

As much as possible, I avoid taking an airconditioned bus because I can’t stand the air conditioning mixed with those My Shaldan and pine tree-shaped air fresheners. Just the thought of smelling them made me instantaneously nauseous. As I always claim, I can ride an ordinary bus or a long jeepney ride but not an air conditioned bus. However, as years passed by, I finally developed a better tolerance, unless the bus really stinks.

Considering plastic surgery: Korean advertisements

Not me, but I’m always baffled by the obsession of some people on plastic surgery. I’ve read before an article explaining that when you especially have extra money (translation: quite a significant amount) to spare, plastic surgery tends to get too addicting. A few minor operation here and there will lead up to a chain of unstoppable obsession.

When we were on the suwbay on our way to YG Entertainment’s Building in Hapjeong-Dong, Mon and I were shocked to see these advertisements plastered inside the train:

That's already a different person - South Korea plastic surgery
