Just to update


LKC said that I've been very lazy in blogging. Well, honestly, it's not because I'm lazy to blog, it's just that there isn't anything special to blog about. Life is going on as usual, no special things happened. The only difference is that I'VE GOT A NEW PHONE! Finally, made up my mind to get Sony Ericsson K618i and traded in my old Nokia 7610. Sigh...the value of a phone depreciated so fast. Remember the first time I asked about the trade-in price for my 7610, they quoted me RM550. That was just a month ago. The next time I asked, they were only giving me RM450 and that was 2-3 weeks back. When I finally made up my mind to get a new phone and traded-in my old phone, my old phone only worth RM400. What a sad story. Thanks LKC for paying RM700 for the balance of my new phone. Now that I've got a new phone with 3G, anyone who uses 3G may use the video call to call me now. I've never tried the Video Call before. Wonder how weird will it be when you're actually seeing your friend while talking with him/her on the phone.

I've been catching up with the TVB drama lately and I think it's worth to recommend to those of you who enjoys watching the Hong Kong drama. I had already finished watching 賭場風雲 (Dicey Business) and found that this drama is really interesting. It talks about some casino business. Currently I'm watching 突圍行動 (The Brink Law), which is worth watching also because 米雪, whom has been acting as a very good mother, sister, aunty etc all these while, has turned to be a very bad person in this drama. Watch it if you have a chance.

K618i or W810i?


Am planning to get a new phone for myself since the Nokia 7610 that I'm currently using is giving me some problem after using it for 1.5 years. Wanna change to something than Nokia. Am looking at the Sonyericsson now since I've heard enough of complains on Samsung and LG. Have been asking around on the price of the phones, currently in mind are K618i and W810i. W810i is a walkman phone with 2 mega-pixel camera, while K618i is a 3G phone with 2 mega-pixel camera too. So, which one is nicer? K618i or W810i? 3G or Walkman? W810i looks nicer than K618i, but it has been in the market for quite some time already and will I use a phone to listen to music? Doubt so. How about K618i? Do I need a 3G phone? Who will use video call with me? Wonder...One thing for sure, I'll definitely getting a white colour phone for myself. That's because I LIKE WHITE!! Oh so confusing now. Which one to buy? Any comments or recommendations are always welcome!!

6 Days Seoul/ Nami Island/ Suwon + Ski Tour (Part III)


Day 4 (19th Dec 2006)

After having breakfast at the hotel, we headed to Everland theme park. Everland is a huge theme park, which includes a animal safari, snow sledding, and botanical garden. Everland has three distinct themes, which includes Festival World, Caribbean Bay and Speedway. Too bad, due to the time constraint, we were only able to visit the Festival World. Festival World has a Global Fair, American Adventure, Magic Land, European Adventure and Zoo-Topia. Each was built with its own uniqueness and style. We visit the Safari World in the Zoo-Topia. Safari World is the only safari complex in the world where lions and tigers coexist. Here, we were able to see the "Liger" (Lion + Tiger) and also bears. Next, we headed to the Snowbuster in the European Adventure. It was an exciting snow sled field and LKC and I were really enjoying ourselves. Since we bought the Big 5 tickets, we were able to play 4 games (1 pass was reserved for the cable car ride). 1 pass had been used for the entrance of the Safari World. LKC doesn't dare to play the roller-coaster and I didn't want to play it myself, so we chose to watch the 3D show at Space Tour, which was showing the Super Hero Sonogong. After that, we walked around the Four Seasons Garden, which is a flower garden full of seasonal flowers, but I didn't see any other flowers except the Christmas trees. Anyway, the decoration was superb. We took the cable car and explored the uphill. At the uphill, the games are more excited as most of the roller coasters are placed here. LKC and I went to Championship Rodeo which is something like the spinning cups in Sunway Lagoon (do they still have it??!!) and also went to the Wonderful Ferris Wheel to have a birds' eyes view of the Everland theme park. After finished utilizing our Big 5 tickets, we walked around the Everland and at the same time took the photos for remembrance. Before leaving Everland, we bought some souvenirs from there. I chose a photo frame, a paper clip and a cacat-sheep soft toy and LKC bought a liger soft toy. Next we headed to lunch somewhere near the Everland theme park. We paid KRW10000 per person for this lunch. Thought it was something special. It was just the same Korean charcoal barbecue that we have back in Malaysia. But one thing good was that it was an unlimited meal, you can add as much meat and side dishes that you wish. It is not counted as per portion like in Malaysia here. After lunch, we headed to the Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, which is the official fortress of Suwon-si, Gyeonggi-do, from the latter days of Joseon Period (1392 - 1910). The fortress wall is 5.52km long but we only walked for 500 meter only. Next, we rushed to catch a non-verbal performance of a dramatization of traditional wedding - "A Wedding in the Snow". It is a story about a parent trying to publicly announce to married their daughter with an underlying intention to gather presents from potential grooms. Next, we headed to the capital of Korea, Seoul and went to the famous Dongdaemun Market for shopping. Dongdaemun is something like our Bukit Bintang, where you can find lots of shopping complexes. We went to the largest shopping complex in Dongdaemun which is called Doota. Their shopping complexes' style is totally different with the shopping centres that we have here. In there, you will not see different shops (with walls in between) inside the shopping centres. It's something like Jaya Jusco or Parkson but the stalls are operated by different people. Did not buy alot from Dongdaemun here, only went to The Skin Food to buy the facial products and a very cheap sweater (cost only KRW 5000, approx RM20). We only managed to walk around the Dongdaemun for less than 2 hours and we headed to have the famous Ginseng Chicken Soup for our dinner. The soup tasted very nice but it was a very big portion for me. I couldn't finish it but still managed to finish up 90% of it. Yummy...slurp slurp!! We stopped at the Itaewon and called it a day. In Itaewon, you will find lots of restaurants and pubs there. Thought of looking for my long-time-no-see friend, Sit, in Itaewon since he told me that he's staying nearby Itaewon, but too bad I only arrived at Itaewon at around 9 something. Missed the chance to meet him in Korea. Anyhow, will still have a chance to go there again!! (I hope)
