Themepark in Buan

Last year, i went to Buan with my co-workers and i heard that hubby has been there when he was in High School. When we went to Daecheon Beach, we were planning to dropped by to Buan but we found out that it was too far to reach the place and we didn't have enough time.

Last week we've decided to visit Buan. It is a county in Jeollabukdo Province. It is where they shot the movie, wangui namja (The king's man or also called The king and the clown) and the drama Bulmyeolui Lee Soon Shin (The Saintly Hero Yi Soon).

As a remembrance, you can get a picture taking with the clothes that were used in the drama but you have to pay, of course.

Like the themepark in Naju where they filmed the drama Jumong,there are also pictures of some characters where they set the drama.

Because Buan is also famous of its beaches, so the Themepark is located just few steps from the beach.

Real State Property in NZ

Hunting for a new house or apartment is not easy. Last year when we decided to buy a new apartment, we saw and checked different kinds of apartments. When we saw the new model house built, we thought that it was the best place for us. We felt in love with the interior of that said apartment so we didn't leave that place without signing up the contract. When it was opened, we found out that it was too noisy because it was near the expressway. We heard the noise of every cars so we gave up the half of the money for the contract and chose another one. It was good because we couldn't hear a lots of noise so we were very excited to move in and were happy for the first few days. Several days later, we found out that we were wrong and it wasn't the right place for us. It has a noisy neighborhood, very complicated parking lot, and far from downtown. A few months later, we've decided to sell that apartment and find a better neighborhood until we found this place that we are living now. It's not a new one but we got it remodelled. We changed the interior and it looks like a new one. I think we got the best place to live in because we are very comfortable here and satisfied with the neighborhood. It is clean and everything is in order.

Why am i telling this? Because everyone is dreaming of buying a new house. If you are living in New Zealand or planning to immigrate there, new zealand real estate can help you find the perfect property in New Zealand. You can find here the full list of land and property for sale. This site also help you give the information about the school, employment legislation, job, and economy.

Finally, my blog was approved by PPP. I heard from many blogger friends how they make money through blogging and most of them are members of PPP. I read on their blogs how much they earn and i can't imagine that they can make that much. Well, everything became possible because of PPP. Everyone are talking and blogging about it. They share some ideas on how to make much money and how their blogs become more popular and get more traffics. Besides they also became more active in blogging. I knew that most of them are satisfied in signing up Payperpost so i got interested into it. Because like them i also want to make money because Christmas is coming and i need more allowance to buy some presents.

I thought blogging is just like sharing your life, sharing some pictures and making friends. And now i found out that we can also make money through blogging. Isn't it great? Making money while making friends and sharing your thoughts to others?

Signing up to Payperpost is not just making money but also learning the blog ethics. We need to know that blogging is not just sharing but also considering others.

So if you're not yet a member of PPP, sign up now and don't miss the opportunity.

Daecheon Beach

Two weeks ago, we went back to Daecheon Beach with my inlaws. Check out my trip to Daecheon last year. We also stayed in the same condominium called fantasy of the ocean.


Here's the view at night.

Before dinner we walked by the sea just near the condominium.

There is a park with swings behind the pension house and a pool in front.I think it's new because I didn't see it last year.

Hubby and I bought this the night before we left. Our plan is to have samgyopsal at night but there was no place for samgyepsal. They even couldn't drink all the beer and alcohol. Everyone was full after having raw fish and maeuntang.

The next day after having breakfast, everyone enjoyed the beach.

Hotels in Madrid

My husband is a sports minded person. He likes most sports specially baseball and soccer. He plays those games almost everyday on his xbox. His goal is to play at least 5 games a day that's why he always sleeps late at night. Because he likes sports and travelling, so going to Madrid is one of our plan. It's because he wants to watch soccer game.

As soon as he arrived home or while waiting for his meal, he always checked out the internet to search for flights and accomodations. Fortunately, i found a site about the
hotels in Madrid
and recommended it to him.

If you also love travelling and looking for a comfortable accommodations you may want to check out this site to find out the hotels news and updates of hotels in Madrid and other countries.

Climbing Mt. Mudeung

After staying outside the mountain because of my dog a few months later i entered to the valley. And now, i'm glad to let you know that i finally reached the top.

Mt. Mudeungsan Provincial Park is a mountain at the edge of Hwasun-gun, Damyang-gun and Gwangju, and it became provincial park in 1972. Mt. Mudeungsan is 1,186m above sea level.

Hubby doesn't like mountain hiking but when he had a day off, he climbed up Mt. Mudeung alone because i had to work. He said he felt good after reaching the top of the mountain so that weekend he invited me to climb up with him.

Mudeungsan does not have a steep incline, so anyone can easily climb it, and it has beautiful valleys flowing under it.

Hubby said that it was good to go up when it is not hot so we went there late afternoon and yes it was scary because it was dark specially because of the trees.

I thought i already reached the top when i saw this tree but hubby said that i haven't reached the half of it. Oh well, i just entertained myself watching the views and taking some pictures while climbing.

I couldn't explain how i felt when i saw this.

That means i'm already on top of the mountain.

Here's the beautiful view. Those white ones behind the mountains are the houses and buildings of the city. Click the pix to enlarge.

Going to Mt. Mudeung is not complete without eating boribap.

Sunchang Gochujang Village

Last Saturday, my mother in law brought some kimchi. She stayed here until dark. Before she left she said that she wanted to go out to get some fresh air. When i asked where she wanted to go, she said she doesn't have anything in mind so i suddenly thought of Sunchang. I know she would like it because i've been there once with my hubby.

The next day, i got up early to make kimbap, prepared snacks and we went to Sunchang Village. Sunchang's claim to fame is its red pepper paste or gochujang, which is supposed to be distinct from other recipes. The governor of the county puts his personal seal of approval on it to make it authentic Sunchang Gochujang.

Here's the village.

Most people (if not all) live there are selling fermented food made of gochujang. As we enter the place, we see big pots in every houses.

Then hajuma grab us to the store and told us to have a taste of their delicacies.

Although we didn't have any plan to buy but after tasting it, we came out carrying this deodeog and mu u.

Go for a drive

Sometimes when we are tired lying down or watching tv, we go out for a walk or sometimes for a drive specially when we don't have any plan or have nowhere to go. I think i've already been to most places here and have been there not only once.

Last time, hubby invited me to go for a drive and get some fresh air and we were amazed by the good place that we've seen here.

It was nice to drive specially when we saw that nobody was with us. It seems like we bought the road and exclusive only for the two of us. hehehe...

Here's another road where there are "Mugunghwa" Rose of Sharon (Korea national flowers). Click the picture to enlarge.

Again, we saw some hajuma and halmoni selling peaches so we bought some.

Unfortunately, they are not as yummy as these.

Podobat (Grapes Plantation)

Koreans usually (if not always) have fruits after meal. Hubby's favorite fruits are peaches and grapes but he doesn't like gobong or the green ones.

Last month when i went to the market, i saw hubby's favorite grapes but i didn't buy any because they cost an arm and a leg. Maybe, because it was their first time to appear in the market. I told hubby about them and he said we need to go to Podobat (grapes plantation) because it is where we can buy cheaper and fresh grapes.

Although it was raining, the rain didn't bother us.

We went to Podobat in Goseo....

And bought this.
