Tis the season to start thinking about Holiday Shopping and MY FAVORITE place to shop for Christmas presents, in Seoul, is at the SIWA and Diplomatic Community Bazaar. The bazaar features items from over 40 embassies, welfare organizations, clubs and international vendors. With so many countries being represented there is no telling what you can find!

I’ve always been fascinated with oriental medicine. Using herbal medicines and natural healing to stay healthy just seems like the right way to live.  Growing up in a Western culture, where I am thankful to have highly developed scientific advancement of modern medicine, unfortunately I did not have a lot of exposure to natural curses and practices of oriental medicine.

Yongsan Electronics Market

You don’t have to be a gadget guro, techy, or electronics lover to want to check out the Yongsan Electronics Market. This massive market sprawls behind Yongsan station and is comprised of 5 large buildings and over 2000 shops both inside and out. If it plugs in a wall or is battery operated you can find it here as well as every cord, computer part, cd, game, or gadget you could every dream of.   Electronic lovers be warned if you head to the market you may find yourself lost in the maze of shops for days. Korea is the 2nd largest electronics consumer in the world and wandering around can easily put that into perspective.

Happy Market Monday, where the first Monday of each month we highlight a different market in Seoul!

 

One of my favorite trips I’ve taken in Asia would have to be the Philippines. Whenever I am struck with memories of the trip I can’t refrain from grinning ear to ear. The friendly people, out of this world beaches and amazing food are just some of the things I love about the place!

Do you love shopping for Korean Lolita brands and other Lolita goodies and live here in Korea or plan on visiting?  Well you are in luck!  Aside from the occasional tea party meetups that are held here, the Korean Lolita community also organizes a biannual market to buy local brands, handmade goods, used items, and even Japanese brands!  The event is called “Lolita Day” and finally after missing the last two events I managed to find out about the latest one so I could attend and share the experience with everyone ♥ Oh yeah~ and shop a little too ^^
