So apparently there is this unspoken taboo about baring your shoulders in this town. One could bare their legs all they want, but shoulders… nope. At first, I wasn’t sure whether that opinion held water, so I made it a point to note how many people bore theirs.
I saw only one other. >_<
Anyway, It’s been more than two years since I’ve worn coloured contacts. Getting them in the US required a prescription, so I spared that indulgence when I lived in LA. I did miss wearing the grey or purple ones that I’d occasionally get in Singapore…
Fel, Ottie, and I made a day trip to the nearby city of Gumi for a day trip of shopping one weekend. I didn’t exactly take a lot of pictures in the city of Gumi, but that’s because we spent our day in the shopping district and I was more concerned with popping in and out of stores just to peer at cute stuff. I did end up getting three pieces of clothes for real cheap- one of them was the high-low skirt I wore in the previous post– but mostly it was just window shopping… or as the Koreans say, eye shopping. :D
Anyway, Fel and I had a craving for ice cream before setting off, so we headed to the Baskin Robbins opposite the bus terminal to satisfy it:
lapalette is such an identifiable shop with their window displays. I saw another branch in Daegu and it seems that the horse sculptures are a staple. I want really want one for myself!
The taxis in Korea were so interesting! It almost felt like I was transported into the future when witnessing all the bright lights blinking and displaying information on the go. There was even a small television (which is not uncommon according to the few taxis I boarded in this country), which worried me a little as to just how well Korean taxi drivers are able to multi-task.
