<b>Beyond Pink Stripes</b>

Random musings, stories, snapshots, and reviews from the "little" girl with several abandoned blogs who suddenly finds herself inspired to scribble once again after coming into her senses and realizing that there's more to LIFE than PINK STRIPES.☺

Rememberin' SEOUL on a Rainy Sunday: A PHOTO DIARY ^^

Here's my life equation for today: 
Sky Shower + Sunday  = Opportunity to just stay home and walk down memory lane by revisiting old photos.:)

In 2011, my then connection with a cosmetic and skincare brand paved the way for my first ever visit to the Land of the Morning Calm, Korea. Along with several editors, writers and TV personalities, I stayed in Seoul from the 7th to 10th of March for a "business cum pleasure" trip.

Unfortunately, I was not able to document the details in writing, e.g. the name of the places, food, etc.. But the PHOTOS are very much intact... I believe they'd do a great job in helping me reminisce and share with everyone (after 2 years!) my superb experience.:D

MARCH 7, 2011
DAY 1 Highlights

*Aboard Cathay Pacific, my tastebuds experienced gastronomic delight.:)

*Seoul Royal Hotel in Myeongdong, Seoul...our haven for 4 days.

*First Dinner in Seoul --- MILITARY SOUP - 
a tasty hodgepodge of noodles, cold cuts, veggies in spicy broth.:)

*The Philippine Delegation after the sumptuous dinner.

*First glimpse of MyeongDong at night.

*South Korean Won :D

MARCH 8, 2011 
DAY 2 Highlights

*The primary reason why our feet landed on the soils of Seoul.:)

*First lunch in Seoul after a fruitful training/ workshop.

*Visit to a doll house so-called Etude House located in ShinChon...it meant access to loads of cosmetics and skincare products, especially those which weren't available in the Philippines yet.:)

*Irresistible sweets, cakes too pretty to be eaten...
all from a pastry shop just beside Etude House. 
Wasn't able to note the name of the pastry shop though :(

*Next destination after satisfying our sweet tooth --- Insa-Dong
Main purpose? To check out antiques and artworks plus...shopping!:)

Some kinda candy that's delicate with SUGAR "HAIRS" (LOL) and peanut filling...aaaargh I forgot how it's called!^^
P.S. That ain't my hand haha :D

*DINNER --- Authentic Korean Barbecue!

*Second glimpse of MyeongDong at night...K-POP's everywhere! ^^

*Compliments of the hotel...a perfect way to end Day 2 in Seoul.:)
