Finding our Soul in Seoul

IMG_4238Like every other Pinays I am also one of KDrama fanatic. I’ve been watching KDramas since the time of Endless Love and Jewel in the Palace up to this day, I am still hook in watching KDramas.

IMG_4180South Korea is part of my bucket list for the longest time, not just because I love KDramas but also I love the views I am seeing in KDrama, the parks, the malls and the foods are very inviting. So last December 2018, I finally ticked South Korea in my bucket list, I spent this vacation with my family (husband and two kids) and this is also our first Winter Vacation. So I am excited to share to everyone how we prepared for the trip specially that Philippines doesn’t have a Winter season and our first family Visa application πŸ™‚

One of the best travel quote that I ever read and I believe in, that is the reason why my family and I always go out and travel when we can. This is year is a special travel for us since we are with the Tulab family (my in laws – Nanay, Tatay, Kuya Rhon, Kitkat, Kathleen, Euness and Ylay), this is the first time that we traveled out of country together, all 1 of us. There are a lot of ups and downs since everyone has their differences but in the end the fun, happiness and enjoyment made us one great family who sees the beauty of the each country together.

Our Favorite Destination – Malaysia

One of our family’s favorite destination is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We first visited KL in 2013 and we keep on coming back every year since then. May people asked me why do we visit Malaysia every year, its simple my husband is a fan of MotoGP, its a motor race that is being held in Sepang international Circuit which is just an hour away from KL, but aside from that, we also love Malaysia because the transportation is very easy and affordable, foods are delectable and also cheap.

Batu Caves:

Sheep Head Towel 101!

 

As a KDrama fan, I have seen a lot of scenes on the series that I watched wherein they are in the public bath or Korean Spa and they have this cute towel on their head that looks like Princes Leia’s bun. I did some research and this towel bun is actually called “sheep head towel” maybe because it resembles the sheep horn.

When we went to New Lasema Spa, I saw some guests who are also wearing the same kind of towel, so I decided to learn how to do it for myself. Now I am sharing it to you so when you go to Korean Spa you can easily make one for you.

Step 1: Fold the towel provided by the Spa, in to three (crosswise).

Step 2: Roll the sides outwards until you reach your preferred length.

Step 3. Open and put it to your head.

 

 

As easy as 1…2…3

 

A Relaxing Treat for our Hard work – New Lasema Spa

IMG_1878

As an employee working for a US company we do not follow most of the holidays in Philippines, so the few US holidays are really one of the most awaited part of the year. Although it is just a one day holiday – September 3, 2018 which is a Monday, most of the people will say that it’s a long weekend and we can go for a getaway near the Metro, but for parents like us who needs to spend the weekend making sure that the kitchen supplies are intact for the week we cannot just go on a trip. Instead, we planned to relax and spend this time in a great place just within the Metro.

What we eat in New York City?

IMG_5582

As Pinoy, we always crave for rice meals since that is the usual food that we have in Philippines. When we first arrive in New York City we are already starving so after checking in at the hotel we immediately look for food and found McDonalds just across the street. We were excited… continue here
