Sorry people. I have to rant again. I am so tired. Traveling is taking up a lot of my time. Although Singapore is so small, I feel that it's no easy feat traveling around it. I took one hour on the circle line to travel from Holland Village to Dhoby Gaut.

Review - Prima Taste Kitchen

Mention Prima Taste and many of us will know the popular local brand that offers the very best of Singapore's much loved dishes through ready-to-cook pastes and premixes. Building on the success of Prima Taste ready-to-cook pastes and premixes, Prima Taste created the Prima Taste concept restaurant to serve 'True Singapore Cuisine'. Located conveniently at level one of The Centrepoint at Orchard Road, Prima Taste Kitchen is a quick-serve restaurant which showcases Singapore food as well as variety and authentic good taste of Prima Taste products. The restaurant features sleek furnishings and a modern ambience accented with Singapore scenes and icons.

However, the food there isn't cheap. If I remember correctly, my bowl of laksa cost $8 and Robin's plate of chicken rice cost $5.

Review - dr Cafe Coffee

Checked out this new coffee cafe in the Plaza Singapura extension. I still prefer Starbucks as the coffee there tasted quite weird to me. Their paper bag looks pretty though.

Pretty paper bag.

My mocha.

I really hate those manipulative people. And those who like/want to take advantage of others. Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you. 己所不欲,勿施于人. But some people just don't get it so I hope karma will bite them. Oops~ Am I being mean? I just want good people to get what they deserve and bad people to get what they deserve. Isn't it fair? Although the world is not fair but I still hope that it can be fairer =)

Korea Trip Part 9

Continue from:

Our last day in Korea. Aww~ So fast! I am beginning to miss Korea already.

Getting ready for the day.

Our first stop for the day is to the Seoul Ice Gallery. It is the world’s first indoor ice sculpture gallery that is opened all year-round. The Ice Gallery is spread over 2 floors. The first floor and entrance is a big room with many tables and the reception area. Here for 5,000 won, you can experience what it is like to be an ice sculptor. You will be taught about ice and how to sculpt. You will be able to carve your own ice mug. Once you have completed your mug, you can sit back and have a nice drink using your own carved mug.

Getting ready to carve our own mugs.

The guy in the centre is the winner of the "Carved Mug Competition" among our tour mates. Didn't take any photo of my and Mummy's carved mugs. Don't know why I didn't but.. they were not nice anyway.

After the "Carved Mug Competition", we went to the Ice Gallery located in the basement of the building. The room is at a constant temperature of -5 degrees celsius. There are a few different sections in the ice gallery but the main theme is Korean Households. They have created replicas of toilets, kitchens and living rooms from ice. Towards the back of the Ice Gallery they have miniature ice sculptures of the Eiffel Tower, Leaning Tower of Pisa and more. Finally, right before the exit they have an Ice Bar.

I'm an eskimo. Welcome to my home. Haha.

After the Ice Gallery, Michael brought us to visit the below place to look and buy Korean Ginseng. Sorry, no photo taking is allowed inside the place so I didn't take any.

Had lunch first before going to the KimChi school to learn how to make kimchi. Our lunch for that day is bak kut teh. I find the Korea bak kut teh weird and not enough meat. I still prefer the Singapore and Malaysia bak kut teh.

Getting ready to make kimchi.

The kimchi we had made. It would be donated to charity.

Different kinds of kimchi for us to try. We tried and bought 6 packets of squid and octopus kimchi. However, the 6 packets of kimchi tasted too salty when I came back to Singapore. Wonder why they tasted ok in Korea.

After the kimchi making session, we went downstairs to try on the Korean traditional costumes and take photographs.

I miss my camera.

Is that Rain? Sorry, I can't really remember the Korean artistes.

We gave Michael and Dawson their tips as that day was our last day in Korea. Somehow, Dawson managed to get us to give an additional 10,000 won as tips for Michael. So total our tips for him is 50,000 won (if I remember correctly). Can't really remember our tips for Dawson. In addition, we also bought a photo album of our Korea trip from Jackson as he had really helped us a lot during the trip. He helped us to carry our luggages, got us food, etc. The cost of the photo album is not cheap. It cost about SGD106. We spent until we didn't have enough money to buy more food back to Singapore at the local products store.

Michael and Dawson sang a song each for us to thank us for the tips. Lolx~

He dare not face us while singing. Shy. Haha.

Dawson and Michael.

Michael and Jackson.

We passed by the Seoul World Cup Stadium.

Saw this gigantic crab in a Korea wholesale centre.

At the Incheon International Airport. Goodbye Korea.

Ate dinner at the airport before boarding the plane.

This aeroplane has design painted. Quite interesting.

Bought this cute Coke in Korea convenience store.

The wordings are in Korean.

Took this photo when I came back and unpacked. My purchases for this Korea trip. Didn't really buy a lot right?

Some photos which I have made with my iPhone.

Okie, this marks the end of my Korea trip. Ah~ I do miss it! I wanna go there again! Maybe during their spring time or something. Hope that it is all peace between North and South Korea.
