Every kid's dream is to live in an amusement park. Glad we got to visit Everland, a Top Rated Theme Park. It's a big park which thinks of the customer's convenience. Like having dryers after a wet ride. Walk-alators and chair lifts. The steepest roller coaster in the world resides in Everland! King personally loved the Rotating House. Felt like the whole house was rotating 360 degrees even though we really didn't! The only down side was that we were pressed for time to maximize the experience. But we had fun nevertheless. :)

Took a short break out of all the hustle and bustle. Good timing too since King was having his semestral break. We headed for Seoul, Korea. It has been 14 years already since my last visit. My brother wasn't even born during that time! Mom was still pregnant with him. It was in Korea when my dad threw a huge rock and wished for a baby boy. Well, lo and behold. It came true.
I was once a supporter of the Korean Telenovela series back in high school. I remember sleeping extremely late hours just to complete one episode after another and yes crying without even completely understanding the language. During this trip, I got the chance to check out Nami Island, the well-known place where Winter Sonata was shot. We were so lucky it was fall, the weather was perfect and the view was simply marvelous. I love the sight of red yellow orange and green leaves hovering the blue cloudy skies. :) Total relaxation mode. :)
We had to take a 5 minute boat ride to reach Nami Island. Nami Island was also known for Rice Threshing. We had the opportunity to try that out. Before I forget, we had good Korean BBQ for lunch!
After a taste of Nami Island, we headed for a hike up to Seorak Mountain. We even had to take a cable car to reach the peak. On the way up there we witnessed a bear statue, a gigantic Buddha as in really big, several bridges and temples plus of course more lovely colors of fall so the climb was worth it! :)
After sketching up this place recommended by Saez for already 3 months back, I finally got to visit and feast on good sashimi thanks to Irvin's drive one random Tuesday! :) We had parking and arrived at 11:30 AM! We got our room reserved thanks to Joyce! :) We had to take off our shoes for an authentic Japanese feel. It was good bonding time. Check out our P350 bento boxes which got me full. :) We promised ourselves to go back. I'm going for the Sukiyaki Bento since the boys seemed to have loved their orders! :)
