Summer

First, I'll start by getting the food out of the way... hehe

Had ginseng chicken soup (삼계탕 samgyetang) on the third hottest day of summer (말복 malbok) to fight the summer heat with heat (以热攻热)! Surprisingly, it felt really good after that! This is a samgyetang shop in Haeundae, my first visit to that shop.

Wall lined with bottles of medicinal herbs... ginseng, roots etc, they even had pineapple in one of them
Samgyetang

Had a fun afternoon at the beach... it was very very hot and filled with pastel colors! Love my Dunkin Donut's float... ^^


Then went to Seomyeon to buy farewell present for the Malaysian girls who are leaving... saw a soju promo event there... Seomyeon is like the central district of Busan... but I had never really walked around that area at night. Went to eat the grilled shellfish... miss it so much! There was this shop with 'grilled shellfish + eat-all-u-can sausage + beer can chicken' near my university but it closed down and changed hands...






Soju bottle and cup taking a rest...
Seomyeon is so nicely lit up at night! I never knew...
Grilled shellfish and octopus in spicy buttered sauce
Recently discovered this little beer place near my university... looks like the owner had been to Bali cos I can see those wooden cats and paper-mache notebooks lying around... The ceiling is very low... but I love the place cos it's so funky with the funny drawings on the wall and so cozy with the chess games and cheap draft beer and potato fries~~


That day after lab seminar we had a free dinner... 마포갈매기쌀 samgyupsal with egg around it... this is the first time I'd been to this place... however service is really bad...


Went to play Disco Jump one of the days... had heard about it a couple of times from MJ and Shirly... so went to try it... It's this amusement park ride where everybody sits in a circle and grasp hold of the railing and the controller will toss you up and down like a pancake! Back pain like hell and arm muscle pain till now... T.T

Disco jump!
Went to a petting zoo too... saw some cute animals~
This rabbit is so adorable!! Begging for food...
Hamsters...
Even the hamster house is so cute!!
Piggy... this is a house-pet!
Check out that dripping-wet snout!
Piggy very lazy... rolling round and round on the floor...
And this is a spotted pig...

And last but not least... inspired by this blog: The Minimalists ...Check it out! The guy said he has only 288 belongings...


This is my latest snapshot of my shelf and desk in my dormitory room... I have sooooooo much stuff! I have at least:- 
  • 3 soft toys, 
  • a dozen ballpens, 
  • 6 packs of wet tissue, 
  • 3 hats/caps, 
  • 3 combs, 
  • 3 sets of untouched facial items, 
  • 3 sleeping packs, 
  • 20 nail polish and 
  • uncountable free samples of skincare items, sleeping pack, BB cream.... 
OMG... do I actually need all that stuff? But actually it's not entirely my fault, half of it is free anyway, the sales people here just like to stuff us mad with freebies! But for the rest... I just feel like I'm so guilty for creating so much garbage and waste in this world... we were born with nothing and we should go with nothing, why do I need so much stuff?! So my resolution is... stop buying stuff until I finish using all of it!
