Where did 2012 GO?

Anyeonghasaeyo!

Its been long since my last post in April! DAMN! Where did May June July Aug go? So! I was feeling to blog today coz my darling is currently in Korea now visiting my favourite city Seoul! It was her first time and she didnt really know where to go and what to do! At that moment I wish I could just buy a ticket hop on the plane and not come back. D:

Seriously I really dont know where did the past few months go! Why time past to fast ever since I started working! I'm in Nuffnang for ONE YEAR already!


So I wanted to go Korea so badly but I didn't have the chance so I attended the Saranghaeyo Korean Festival 2012 organize by KTO (Korean Tourism Organisation) in conjuction of Chuseok or also known as the Mid Autumn Festival here. It was held at Hotel Istana today! Instead of having mooncakes the koreans eat Songpyeon, think I have mentioned before in one of my blog posts long time ago! You can read it here!

Before the event starts officially, participants can try out some korean traditional games like Yutnori.


I've learned how to play Yutnori during my uni days during the International festival but I've completely forgotten how to play now. Spot me in pink Hanbok. :D


Kinda missed my Korean lecturer today, was hoping that I could meet him today at the festival. T__T

So back to the festival today, they have korean experts there to teach you how to play. Spot the cute korean guy! 


And also other games! I dont' what this is called. First time seeing this tho! You are suppose to throw the sticks into the hole thingy. D:


And some Korean food display. Different kinds of kimchi! Yums!


 And Kpop dance performance by this group of dancers for Redmouse Dance Academy. Their dance instructors are from Korea! 


One of the instructors have trained this group called BAP! Watch their video here! New fan here!



First thing came to my mind is I want to join them! Its been really really long since I have danced. About two years! Sigh! I'm probably not flexible anymore and all my fats are stored around my belly. Uggghhh!!


 Been looking for a suitable dance studio and this is like the perfect one. Enquired the details from one of the dancers, fees are reasonable but located in Sunway! Haih! A bit difficult for me to travel there. So sad!

So we were divided into groups, made some songpyeon, played some games, there was Gangnam Style flashmob. Forgot to take pictures! Got too distracted by this guy with pink hair, dressed up like PSY, he was the lead dancer for the flashmob and he was awesome!

Then it was end of the event, I managed to take pictures with two Korean guys! hehehehe. XD



So after the event, I was kinda sad coz I realised I have have not been doing the two things I love: Korean language class and dance class. I had to stopped the language class coz there wasn't enough students in my level, so they had to close the class. Sigh!

What I can do now is to watch korean videos only. :(
