Shinsegae Loves Britannia

We also went out to an event w/o kiddies. Shinsegae Loves Brittania...

Shinsegae Trinity Garden

Was pretty funny to see that these fashion events are all the same... In PR, NY or here... The same people just different faces!  This was on the rooftop of Shinsegae Main Store, (Trinity Garden). To see the view of Seoul at night with all the lights and the Namsan tower on the back was pretty cool.

& Ewan Mcgregor was there...


We also stopped by Myeongdong and Garosu-gil (one of my favorite areas here). While searching for the Baking area, I ended up around the Chonggyecheon stream. 

And it doesn't stop... We found out there's a Chinatown in Incheon and I sooo want to make it a weekend road trip. And mayyyybe we'll head over to Busan soon too... I love the good weather!!! 

Hopefully soon I can do more detailed posts about some of the areas. It's been a tiny bit hard keeping up these days. I get home and deal with the afternoon madness of what is having kids, feeding them, bathing them, bedtime & catching up with all my delayed house chores (laundry, cleaning, cooking etc.) See... keeping it real... 
It's not all fun in paradise... hehehe... 

I sure try to make the most of it! : )
