Oh ! Finally i have access to internet !
Spent 3 days 2 night at Tong Yeong , South Korea for a road trip with Mr Park and his family. It was a 6 hours drive from Incheon to Tong Yeong.
2 days before going for the road trip , Mr Park and i went to Emart which is 5 mins away from his house to chiong for Missha sales ! Failed to get any green tea masks cos it was out of stock. Went to almost 6 outlets and they were out of stock. I only managed to get the peeling gel and my eye brightener concealer which went down from $3.30 to $2.50. The Super Aqua D-tox peeling gel which im currently using and raved about is going at only $7 ! Stocked up 2 tubes to bring back to SG. Missha sales ends 31st July. I need to buy 300pcs of green tea mask and all are not for me but helping others to buy. Managed to carry back 100 pc of pearl and raspberry masks and it was super duper heavy.
After filling our trolley with Missha products , it was time to stock up on packets of ramyeons ! Because i will get hungry at night while im working.
I like the lotions and body foam from Happy Bath. Esp the ones in Cherry blossom and Cotton Flower. Gonna grab some back to SG ! lol. This brand can be found at any super market in Korea. I love one shampoo brand too. It was very good and moisturising.
I love these donuts found at the road sides stalls. They are super yummy ! Only at 50cents each ( 4 for $2 ) . I can eat all 4 of them.
On thursday , Mr Park brought me to a salon near his apartment to get my hair done. He said it was too dry and damaged. He told his hair stylist to do the “Magic” hair treatment , straightening , cleansing , touched up my roots and cut my hair. At first i dont know what it means when they kept mentioning the word “Magic” . Now , i know that it is a kind of hair treatment. The name of the hair treatment is called MAGIC. So you can go to the salons in Korea and ask for Magic hair treatment. There are different kinds for different hair needs. So you need to ask properly which one suits you best. They did a hair treatment to moisturise my hair. Today is the 5th day after the hair treatment and my hair still feels so moisturised , soft and thick.I really like this hair treatment alot. They do give complimentary services too such as hand care ( the lady in stripes ) is spraying a hand care oil onto my skin , hair comb massage etc. I spent about $130.
Touching up on my hair roots.
Different stations for different hair treatment. There is an ipad for you to watch tv/drama/variety shows too.
This hair salon is in Incheon ,Yeonsu-gu and they dont speak English. You may want to head down to Gangnam to get your hair done at Juno Hair Salon. The staff speak English. You should try to have a hair cut in South Korea if you are going there on a holiday. Mr Park only spent $11 (KRW 10,000) to get his hair cut , washed and styled with complimentary hand care services etc.
I alway wonder why Korean girls have thick , moisturized and smooth hair. Now i know why. Not only does the weather play a part but they have different kind of hair treatment for different needs. The hair stylist will spend about 5 mins examining the hair conditions before they introduce you what kind of hair treatment , style and perms are best for you. I wanted to do the C curl perm at the ends but i was advised not to because the bottom of my hair was damaged . I need to do alot of styling for my Agneselle outdoor shoots and it is advisable not to do the C curl perm to avoid further damage. Ahhhhhh so sad !
My hair looks thick and very moisturized now. There is a shine.
After hair cut , went back to my favourite place – Bupyeong !
haha this place is Mr Park’s nightmare !
It is difficult for me to get a nice top. I realised Korean girls love loose fitting and over sized shirts. Their oversize shirts are like mega over sized on me. Their bone structures are a little bit bigger. Or maybe im just too petite.
On friday , it was the road trip to Tong Yeong which is near Jeju-do , the south part of South Korea. A far 6 hour drive to this suburb city known for their seafood.
We went to Dong-pi-rang which is like a mini-Santorini in Korea.
If you do watch Innocent Man ( starred Song Joong Ki ) , you will know about this place
It’s dinner time !
I had dinner with his cousins and family.
And i tried the raw live octopus.
You can feel the thing wriggling in your mouth and stuck to your tongue. You have to chew really hard and well before swallowing . Else you will get choked.
After dinner , we went to his cousin’s house for stay over.
His niece is soo cute and tiny !
Baby Da Hyeon doing the Korean bow ( way of greeting elderly ) to Mr Park’s father.
Standing on a chair and waiting to climb onto Sangjin oppa’s back for a piggy back ride.
It’s dinner time.. Ciao ! After dinner , gonna write down a list of what i need to get from HERA ! I love their skin care products. My skin looks more radiant and hydrated. The products are not as oily as Laneige.
