Sparkling Korea Day 3

Day 3:

tried the bread from this cake shop which looked traditional from across our guesthouse:

but actually not very nice. just like sponge cake nia....

orange juice for vitamin Cs!

after that, we took the city tour bus for 10000won to Changgyeonggung palace.

very intricate details:

for fire fighting:

after that was Changdeokgung palace. its much bigger than the previous one:

lovely butterflies with my 10x zoom camera! haha

after that, we went to this gate to watch the guard-changing ceremony

this stores the key. the guard is supposed to present the key or something. I don't know cos the commentator wasn't very clear in her Eng and Chi....lol

its quite an eye-opener with all the interesting costumes

the musicians for the ceremony:

after that, we went to outback steakhouse for lunch:

baby back ribs!

after that we had to go back take the seoul city tour bus (which is 10000won for the whole day), and witnessed a protest! of the elderly....

the bus took about 1h plus and we reached dongdaemun


naengmyeon (cold noodles). VERY NICE!:

korea's no1 treasure: dongdaemun:

after shopping at dongdaemun, we went back to myeongdong to shop awhile. had ddokpokki:
