The program is ending very soon!
Left: In the morning, we had our special lecture as usual.
Right: Then, in the afternoon, we went to a high school to experience Taekwondo. We took a bus there but had to walk up the steep hill to the school. It was hard work! Goodness! The view from one of the windows at the high school.
We were introduced to the Olympians. They were training there. I was given with red belt ;p Took a photo with the trainer (the guy) and my buddy. I was very bad in it, no coordination at all. My butt hurt like crazy during the warming up session in which we were required to jump a lot! I’m not good in running and jumping. I was in so much pain, couldn’t really stand up properly. Luckily after resting, it was ok and I continued with the other sessions.
At night, we went to Shinsegae at Centum City, “world’s largest department store, surpassing the Macy’s department store in New York City in 2009” (quoted from wikipedia). I just wanted to go there, most of them were there for the skating rink.
Left: All sort of food, great presentation and not cheap too.
Right: The ice skating rink.
I did not skate, not my interest. Even we have skating rink here in Adelaide I also don’t bother about doing it.
Tired… Rest… Camwhored!
Went for dinner at the foodcourt before going back. Huge variety of selections. Luckily there was English version menu. Food prices were very affordable! (In terms of spending USD or AUD there). Had to order at the counter and they will send the order to the appropriate kitchen. The gadget in the photo is the buzzer. Once your food is ready, it will buzz and you go to collect your food. I ordered Cheese Egg Omelet and Rice (KRW5000). It came with some side dishes. Didn’t realize it’s not Korean food *LOL* A bit regret ordering this but it’s not bad tasting. Should order something Korean.
One of the food ordered by my friend. Portion was huge! Food preparation was fast too. There were so many people that time, it took us quite awhile to find seats for so many of us.
Waiting for some of them to get their ice cream. It was quite a long wait.
After that, we headed home. It was such a tiring day.
