The Incheon International Airport had won the Best Airport Award for 6 consecutive years. Not so surprising about that if you have been traveling via that airport and have experienced its excellent and stress-free service. And there’s more… we got the opportunity to check the other side of the huge airport when Firstborn had his… Read More Skating Rink in Incheon International Airport
When was the last time we watched a movie? We used to just line up to purchase our movie ticket but we discovered a new way last weekend when we went to CGV Times Square. Yes, we did online reservation before. This self-ticketing corner isn’t new, either. But this time, we noticed that people waiting… Read More Purchasing Movie Tickets
How much is the Goldilocks Polvoron (assorted flavor, 30 pieces) in the Philippines? This one is KRW12,000. The price I have to pay for craving a Philippine product:-).
I found a pre-school for my Little Dynamo. Kinder Liebe. I was overjoyed when I visited the place for the first time and discovered that the Directress speaks English. For a foreigner like me who doesn’t speak Korean, this is a relief and this is the most important factor in choosing my son’s pre-school. Important too was the… Read More Kinder Liebe: A Pre-school Option for Foreigners in Seoul

This particular flea market was in Tae Young Apartments in Mapo-gu last week.

I think I will have to do without a helper… at least until I find a reasonable rate again. Six months ago, I was giving my part-timer 60,000-won for a 9am-6pm job. When I recently contacted my part-timer again, this time she was asking 70,000-won for the same length of time. She asked me if… Read More Filipina Domestic Helper’s Rate
We’re back here in Seoul. I woke up on my first morning wondering “where’s my breakfast?”. There’s no one to say, “ate, kain na po kayo”. Yesterday, we got ready to go to the playroom at the second floor of the building. Six months away from here, my Little Dynamo has apparently forgotten where the playroom is.… Read More Where’s my breakfast?
When I first arrived here in Seoul more than three years ago, my husband immediately and excitedly brought me to the apartment we called home for two years. It was my first time to experience a Spring morning so I was freezing outside the door but hubby took the joy in showing off the keyless lock feature of our… Read More House Keys No More
It’s 5am in my part of the world! And I woke up at 4am. Before that, my sleep was unpleasantly disturbed by the arrival of my husband at 2am. He was out with Korean and Italian colleagues who are here in Seoul for a business trip. I excused the weekend absence. I am a supportive… Read More It’s the Soju!
