Korea

Do you know that...


  • Samsung is composed of over 70 South Korean businesses, one of them being Samsung Electronics which everyone knows. They manufacture electronics, chemicals, ships, textiles, food, run hotels, amusement parks, construct skyscrapers etc. Yes, you do see a lot of Samsung cars around in Korea.


  • Speaking of cars, you'll notice like 90% of the road-users driving local Korean cars. It's like having a whole lot of Protons and Peroduas on the roads.


  • Every local speaks the Korean language in Korea. Even signboards and menus are written in their language (Hangeul), which obviously do not appear to cater to tourists at all. Language barriers would be any foreigner's major challenge. Those kimchis must be really proud of their language.


  • Bae Yong Joon who acts in Winter Sonata apparently has a very nasty attitude! (aww, yenny)


  • There are about 20 casinos located around South Korea but only one of them is open to Koreans. Yup, Koreans are literally being refrained from gambling by the government. The remaining casinos are open only to foreigners.


  • Things in Korea are wayy too pricey. A plate of spaghetti would cost you about 10,000 won, which's about 40 ringgit. We did some last minute shopping before we headed to the airport. A small shopping basket containing several boxes of tidbits and we had to shell out almost RM 300. All that just for biscuits and seaweeds.


  • You don't see any stray dogs in Korea (not even one!). And that's because Koreans love dog meat. It's apparently the most expensive meat in Korea.



  • Very funny. That's the traditional Korean costume. The dress's called the hanbok, no idea what the guys' are called. It's normal to see Koreans in the public wearing these traditional apparels, more so on festive days. By contrast, we hardly see us chinese clad in cheongsams at any time of the year.



  • I know, I haven't posted anything on the trip yet. Been really busy lately pbl pbl csu study study. Can't even find time to watch 300, which's ergh! depressing.
