This would be a really backdated post.
When we heard the news of hubby’s relocating to Seoul for work quite some time back. But the fact that he’s got to go over there to start his work somehow come as a sudden – 2 month or less from actual date. It was a rush for us, too. We had to go over for a look-see to decide on the house and school. We spent a total of five days. The beauty of this is that we get to go on a business class, stay in a 5-star hotel and all food expenses paid-for. Who could ask for more. LOL. Our flight was midnight. By the time we arrived in Seoul, it was at 7am and the poor kids looked so tired. We were picked up by a limo to the hotel and the rests of the days in a chauffeured-driven limo accompanied by consultants of the relocation service company. But these days have been quite hectic for us. We’ve seen God knows how many houses .. I think almost 10 houses altogether and visited 3 schools. We have already decided on the school and the kids sat for the entrance examination. At the end of our trip, we finally decided on the house.
Had dinner at my Mom’s place and now for some snacks at the Golden Lounge.
Time for boarding in the plane. Poor kids – looked so sleepy.
This is where we were staying. Nice facilities and nice view.
Our first Korean BBQ – totally original!
Poor Princess had a huge bump on the head while viewing a house. Somehow, she didn’t see the glass door and went straight into it. Ouch! My heart broke when I saw that. Luckily the glass door was sturdy and didn’t break.
After lunch, we saw this restaurant selling Puffer Fish aka Blowfish – a supposedly known delicacy that’s poisonous if not prepared carefully. This is something that I will never try!
We stopped-by at Costco, a wholesaler chain from the US that sells at wholesaler price. This is a funny looking fish with one-sided face. I wonder how will they swim?!!?!
At dinner-time, we decided to have buffet at the hotel cos all of us had a nap in the room. By the time we woke up, it was too late to go out. Boy loved the scallops so much he ate a whole plate of it!
Korean Art & Craft: Boats made from leaves. Done by one of the nice ladies from the relocator company to entertain the kids.
Namsangol Traditional Houses: The kids were complaining of the heat and reluctant to take pictures but I managed to ‘make’ them take a few with some bribes and threats. LOL.
At the hotel entrance.
Had room service cos hubby had dinner with the boss at the hotel restaurant.
Time to go home – we’ll be back!
Boy was so tired cos the night he didn’t sleep much. This naughty fella used the nds stylus to dig his ear and complained afterwards. We had to rush him to the hospital but turned out ok. No infection – just inflamed! Thank goodness. I’m sure after this lesson, he will never ever put anything into his ear – EVER!
To sum up – the good or the bad? Hard to tell at this moment. You tell me.
