Keeping up with the Koreans



*background song Spring Day BTS*



For the very first time ever, i get to finally be myself. I found my true self when I was away from all the suffocating matters I have in my birth country (ewah). It's indeed true when people say, travelling makes you realize something, something buried deep inside, something that needs to be awakened..and travelling had rejoiced me with an inevitable epiphany. I now realize that life is to be enjoyed, not suffered upon. Granted there are hurdles along the way but we just need to go through it. Coz in life, there is also happiness apart from those struggles and sufferings.



kami pakai hanbok! weee~~~~  (darat)



Jauh perjalanan luas pemandangan.



100% true.



My view was widened so much. Upon contemplating, I know how much i matured upon returning from my sojourn at SK. I believed I had grown physically and mentally better. And I love the new me.

After returning, I feel like a new person. I want to strive in this life no matter what will come ahead. No matter how much tears or blood shall I shed. No matter how much I will sacrifice my every second breathing in this life. Maybe my existence is merely to make them happy. I can maybe claim my happiness in the hereafter. Hopefully God will grant that one wish of mine.

Talking about travelling. When travelling in ice-cold weather of winter, it's important to have multiple layered clothing.





As for me, I had  opted 4 layer inner clothes, topped with a thin outerwear. My inner wear consists of 2 fit cotton inner shirt, coated with another cotton knee-length blouse, and finally coated with another blouse made of polyester. I tell you what that combo of inner wear really got me sweating like crazy! Thanks to the polyester material which insulates the heat so well. And this style really becomes handy in winter. Coz the wind was frigging cold your cheeks could've frozen! And of course the outerwear is also important, to provide additional heat and to finish your entire outlook. I chose a navy green cotton long sweater I bought off Lazada for RM45. So cheap yet efficient enough to help me face the killing cold. The trick here is THICK INNERWEAR.


Another thing is to wear two layered pants. I tell you your legs will tremble in such piercing cold weather so two layers of pants is a minimum. I wore 2 pairs of socks to help me cope in such weather. We were walking in temperature of as low as -8°C so thank God I bought a mafla and a pair of gloves. Phuh I was trembling like hell!!! Mafla and gloves are  MUST-HAVE items! Be prepared.
Another thing to prepare is Vaseline and aloe vera. Be sure to bring them along in your bag. They really help you with the dry skin and chapped lips. Kat sana, kau mudah dehydrated. Sejuk camne pun, takdenye rase nak kencing sebab kau banyak berjalan so badan banyak guna air lalu kau mudah jadi dehydrated. Sampai satu tahap, Nawa the tour guide said to us "gerak gerakkan jari tu akak, nanti kulit koyak kalu kering sangat," I was like what?? Koyak??!?! Terrified, terus je gerak2kan sendi tak berenti. Haha.




Truthfully, Vaseline really helped a lot. Rub the petrolatum at your joints and skin so that they will stay moist. The frostbite is something we really wanna avoid. It's so dangerous and terrifying. The thought of losing a finger really was horrendous. Brrr. Tapi kat muka jangan la pegi tepek Vaseline hahaa. Naya kang. Pakai lah losyen muka atau krim pelembap atau BB cream.



Satu lagi!!!! Sunblock.






Kau ingat winter2 ni matahari takde ke? Tengok spek aku tu seme jadi itam dlm gambar. Matahari memang ade terpacak so kene ade sunblock. Dah tu ade matahari nape sejuk kaw2? Diknon, panas2 matahari yg tegak atas kepala, tak bleh lawa sejuk lagi angin yg bertiup. Hahaha. Cumanya mmg kene ade sunblock sbb winter2 pon boleh kene sunburn. Mujur bawak Sunblock cream nanowhite. Phuh selamat daripada burn.


Lastly, kasut! Pastikan beli kasut selesa. Mahal pon takpe. Bleh pakai lama. Sebab kat sana banyak guna kaki. Banyak berjalan dan berlari. Aku beli kasut murah rm50 tak sampai stgh hari kaki sakit. Hahaha. Lutut ni mcm nak tercabut. Mase tu la terbayang nikmatnya kaki bersarung kasut NIKE harga 200 yg selesa amat tu ughhh. Mcm berjalan atas awan haha. Hmm lepas ni jangan sayang duet beli kasut. Syg kaki lagi okay?


Ha tu antara tips yg ade kalau travel musim sejuk. Kalau rajen lagi aku tambah lepas ni.


Wuuu sejuknya.





stroberi 5000 won (approx. RM20). besar gemuk dan manis. bergaduh dengan ahjushi tu meccok aku mintok 2 box 10k won. dia nak bagi 2 box 11k won. aku kata bagi la 10k alang2 kau nak diskaun. pahtu dia mcm nak marah aku. lepas aku kata haa bagi aku se kotak jelah mcm tu gak. last2 ye bagi gak 10k untuk 2 kotak. hahhahahahahh!!! keras jugak aku rupenye. ngihngih.




gula2 pakcik strangers bagi kat train. orang cakap jangan amik makanan strangers offer, kau boleh plak selamba amik ngappp masuk mulut. hahaha.



ahjushi pesara lawyer. salam siap cium tangan. ughhh. menyesal pegi hulur.




minum kopi kat Jamba Juice sebelum naik flight balik Malaysia sorang2 sobs. mujur Nawa teman sampai aku check in luggage. debor wehyh balik sorang2. tapi x debor mana sebab ramai je Malays mase tu. kalau delay (nauzubilah) aku berkampung la dengan depa kat airport tu. 




Bye2 Korea.
