"HI Seoul"

Dreaming of a White Christmas

(Korean version)

난 흰 크리스마스의 꿈을 꾼다
제가 알던 사람처럼
어디에 나무 꼭대기 반짝
그리고 아이들이 들어
눈 썰매를 타네

Yes, really…I' m dreaming for a white Christmas, since I was a kid. Snowing in the Philippines (wherein I live) never happened (lol). Last Christmas season (December 2009), for the first time I got it… in South Korea. Unfortunately, not all Koreans are celebrating Christmas, but they light up the city for Christmas season.

Seoul City Travel Information

Mountains circle Seoul on all sides with Namsan (South Mountain) springing up in the center. Although the Han River once marked the southern boundary, the city has sprawled across to the southern side with some 2 dozen bridges crossing it and one subway tunnel underneath. As Korea's capital and most populous city, Seoul represents the country's center for business, education, and modern culture. It offers many activities for everyone, including museums and palaces, parks and mountains, and amusement parks and night clubs.

Doctor Doctor I am Sick

I was sick when I went to South Korea. I got mumps and fever. The big question was….Are they allowing me to enter South Korea or they’re going to quarantine me?

So what I did is take Biogesic (endorsement huh!) 2 hours before landing at Incheon International Airport.

My fever’s gone, when we arrived. I covered my neck with my jacket so Korean Health personnel at the airport did not notice that I was sick

Welcome to Korea

Korean Immigration Staff asked me some questions before she allowed me to enter.

Lady: Hello, Is this your first time in Korea? (While opening my passport)

Me : Yes

Lady: Are you alone?

Me : No, I’m with my friends.

Lady: How many are you?

Me : We’re four.

Lady: Where are you staying?

Me : at the hotel…Hyundai Residence Hotel

Lady : Ah…ok.. And why do you decide to visit Korea?

Me : To see the snow.

Lady: (laughed ….then she stamped my passport and said) Welcome to Korea

Around Seoul / Sightseeing

Getting around in Seoul, we took subway….the best way to avoid traffic.

If I was not mistaken, Seoul has 9 or 10 lines.

The most guarded and dangerous boundary on the planet

The Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), Inside the DMZ, near the western coast of the peninsula, is a place called PANMUNJEOM
(The Great Divide), home of the Joint Security Area (JSA); it was originally the only connection between North and South Korea.

No one is allowed to visit this place individually unless you are in a guided tour.

Oh …I did not enjoy Korean foods, just because I was sick. I don’t have the appetite. Sorry for me but I thank God for safe travel.
