Jelly pudding cups in 7-11


Those days when you want something sweet and refreshing, but not heavy or creamy - head to the jelly section in convenient store!

Grabbed these jellies!


One is grape - it has real grapes on the bottom.  And the other one is "coco-strawberry"


They look like the perfect treat!


Can you see the green grapes on the bottom? 

It's sweet, but not heavy and the real grape bites makes you feel like you're eating something a bit healthier (but not likely so).


The coco-strawberry is not as sweet as the grape one!  It tastes a bit creamy from the coconut milk addition. 


I like the jelly more than the chunks of jelly on the bottom because they were too sweet for my liking.


Enjoyed these thoroughly..!

What's your less than guilty sweet treat?! ;)

Earthquake in Seoul


On Monday September 19th, 8:33pm, I felt like I was lifted briefly in the air (very briefly!) while lying down on the sofa.  I looked over my husband and he too knew what it was.

We got our 2nd earthquake after just a week ago when it felt like the building shook (side to side) very briefly and ever so lightly.  This time felt like I was lifted up and down.

Very small number of people felt it in Seoul this round - that's what I get for being so sensitive.  


This is not my first experience with earthquakes - I grew up in the Philippines where I remember my mom holding us while the earth shook and things were flying off the shelves.  This is my 3rd earthquake feel in Korea since 2007.  

I can't say what this means - but perhaps it's natures way of reminding us that our time is brief here and any moment could be our last.  

Koreans are super scared because they always believed they were safe from earthquakes.  I can feel the paranoia here.  The way the government is handling small matters doesn't make it all assuring that if something big does happen that that might be it and the end.    A bit negative, but you can't blame them for being so paranoid. 

All I know is that we are all at the mercy of nature.  

On a lighter note:  Japan has lived with it and so can Korea.  They just have to start taking some actions for preparation and education in many required areas to better deal with earthquakes and its aftermath.  

What the Chemtrail! (Seoul, Korea)


Chemtrails... 

After a few days of beautiful clear days - I guess they didn't want it to last - the sky is covered in Chemtrail film of gray dusty looking blanket.  


Is there a jet show?  You gotta wonder what's up there. 


I like to ask questions.  I don't know how I came about learning about chemtrails - but glad I did.

Doesn't hurt to ask and learn why.


Geoenginering is nothing new. 

It's not some tale anymore.  More and more people are waking up to learn why the sky is the way it is. 


You can actually see the plane when you look closely.  That's spraying the sky and altering nature. 


The residue it leaves behind looks like clouds - but it's not.  It's very deceiving. 


Free jet show with a hint of aluminum dust to accelerate Alzheimer's!  Anyone?!


No one wants to know that evil is being done - but you have to wake up to see the truth:   

Everything is connected.

After chuseok - fall weather


The weather this chuseok wasn't as pleasant as it should have been - no blue sky in sight, but pale gray polluted air.  But that's no more!  


Ironic how the weather turned inside and out upside down after Chuseok.  We can see the ever so pretty blue sky and cotton candy clouds.

Fall also finally landed its path to stay - probably not as long as everyone hopes it would because autumn is one of the prettiest season in Korea.  Cool air, falling foliage leaves covers the streets makes you want to stroll and skip along with your favorite person hand in hand - and did I mention sweaters?  Hoodies?  It's my favorite time of the year!


The library in city hall had some books on sale in front.  I go giddy seeing books.


As pretty and colorful as they look - they were way too expensive for their condition - looked as if they were all thrown in a storage room 5 years ago only to be recovered and sold now.  

I hate to see books waste away and hope these find happy owners.


It was a lovely day to stroll and clean our lungs.  I felt relieved that the air cleared up. 

Cheonggyecheon stream still had people who enjoyed their river feet soaking - it felt too chilly for me to even try that.  The weather cooled off as the day went on.


There are plenty of restaurants and cafes around Gwanghwamun nowadays.  We love checking out what's new. 


We love this area.  Still have so many places we have yet to check out and eat.

What's your favorite place?

Still my favorite chocolate cafe - Laderach in SFC mall (Gwanghwamun)


After all these years... I can't seem to replicate their chocolate drink.. I've been close but never the same.  I can't seem to replicate their delicate balance of subtlety and boldness in flavor of chocolate.  It's never too sweet and always just the right sugar content.  Now that hoodie season is here, I know this will be my cafe for the season.

Laderach is my favorite chocolate place located inside SFC mall in Gwanghwamun.


They have a great selection of chocolate in front.  However enticing, I always stick to my "classic chocolate drink."


My husband enjoys the cool choco mint drink.  I can't seem to mix mint and chocolate like that in one sip - however I do like it in solid form. 


SFC mall has many restaurants and cafes.  Not many but enough to pick something - but it's not really on the casual side and a bit more on the expensive side.  I would say mid range - the cheapest option probably is bulgogi brothers. 


There's 5cijung cafe inside - it's a fun and cute cafe for the ladies.  Dainty and calming.

There's also Tartine now which is new. You can get American pies.  I haven't tried this one here - but I have enjoyed the original shoppe in Itaewon.

There's a bit of shopping but very little - it's more for upscale eating and good cafes.  It's a nice place for a blind date night when you don't want any nuissance from the weather to make sure your hair stays on par and makeup never to melt away.
