Blog #5: Delicious Idols (KPOP Idols That Look Like Food)

Admit it, they're frickin' delicious. 6-pack abs, cute eye smiles and fatal aegyo. They're just so adorable, you'd want to take a bite. They're yummy, figuratively speaking.

Then there are idols who look delicious, literally. Today, I'm sharing my list of the yummiest, most mouth-watering cuisine South Korea has ever concocted. (WARNING: CONSUME IN MODERATION)

Blog#4: Invincible Youth - Sandara Park

We've all heard about how Sandara Park drinks the fountain of youth on a daily basis. Seeing her most recent pics, heck, I say she swallowed the whole spring and left none for us mere peasants. It's a travesty!

Blog #3: Gloss Encounter (Clio Art Lipgloss)

Annyeong yeorobun! 

I'm so excited for today's entry because it's a topic close to my heart: make up! Now we all have heard at least once in our lives that South Korea houses probably the most number of cosmetics brands in the world. It's no wonder it is until now my favorite haven for all things beauty!

There were two stores I made sure to visit while I was at Seoul, Innisfree because Hyemi of Pony's Beauty Diary always use it and Clio because of Sandara Park, of course. I'll be tackling some of the products I bought there, specifically, lipgloss. 

Which is the better product from the two brands, Innisfree and Clio? I'll be basing it on three (3) categories: packaging, color and texture. Let's find out!

Blog #2: Seoul Searching

September 2011
Touchdown Seoul, South Korea

One of the craziest things I've ever done in my entire 28 years of existence is letting my friend book me a 4 days and 3 nights trip to South Korea on a whim. It was a "do you wanna go to Seoul" type of thing which was only answerable by YES or NO with no provision for a question "WHY". So of course I said YES and minutes later, found myself on a Cebu Pacific flight to Busan, South Korea with five of my friends.

So off we go on a 4-hour airplane ride to Busan and another 6-hour train ride via Mugunghwa to Seoul. Imagine our dismay when we found out that the guesthouse we booked forfeited our reservation since we weren't able to answer the owner's frickin' call while we're airborne! Thank god for Hotel Skypark 3 in Myeongdong.

Blog #1: Annyeong!

My love affair with Korea started one November night in 2010. I was channel surfing and I ended up watching this 6-hour long music awards that featured artists with chinky eyes and funky outfits. Yep, MAMA 2010 baby.
