More than a year has passed and I still haven’t posted anything about my Seoul-scapade 2010. What a slack. 😛
It was last year when I was blessed enough to step a foot in the Land of the Morning Calm through an invitation from Korea Trade Investment (KOTRA). You know, work can sometimes have its perks, right?
I was really interested in Korea since my second year in high school because of the Asian history subject that is part of the curriculum. I sort of reunited with that interest when Korean dramas have become a hit in the Philippines (in whole Asia, even) and I saw 궁 or more known to many as Palace or Princess Hours. That pushed me a little further and had me interested with learning 한글 during my last semester in the university. However, priorities seem to get into the way (read: schedule of major subjects =.=) that time so I took Deutsch instead.
It needed three years after my Korean drama fascination to awake my heart to say 안녕하세요 once again; this time with KPOP (Fine. Judge me now! Haha!) Imagine my ecstasy when I have received an invitation from our partner during the times that 너 같은 사람 또 없어 was playing in my head on a daily basis. With the support of my immediate boss (read: pangungunsinti), the attendance to the said event was approved! Imagine my sparkling eyes. LOL
Everything was a breeze for us after approximately a month of preparations. Here are some of the highlights of my Seoul trip 2010:
But then again, I was the responsible employee (With lots of cosmetic and toiletries shopping activities on the side after the end of a work day). I came to this wonderful place primarily for work! Therefore, I promised myself that I’ll be back (♫ 넌 다시 나를 찾을 거야 ~…)
