Korea Seoul Myeongdong Namdaemun

23 March 2015

No dinner

Late pancake lunch has its consequences, I was still full, no dinner for me. I must maintain my girlish figure. Thats not to say I didnt eat anything.
One of the reasons for not many photos tonight is because I ate a few things on sticks, which probably equates to more calories than a proper meal. Yeah, I worry about calories.
Enough of that crap though, did you know that this week is the 3rd annual world foot festival? Its time to treat your feet to a new selection of shoes, not just a pair, you need a new selection, for all possible foot related eventualities.
This marketing campaign seems to be a combined effort across competing stores, with plenty of people in lab coats explaining why you need to replace your shoes now, due to new technology, and the benefits this might have on your health, such as preventing dementia.

Did you also know that its never too young to start a proper skin care routine? I have seen face masks for babies, special sheep placenta cream for babies with added baby juice to make for a smoother baby, and also whitening cream for babies.
So if you have a baby, and you arent buying these things, you are a bad mother.

Also, are you aware of the health benefits of chicago deep dish pizza? Apparently its good for your skin complexion, due to whole dairy, and because the base is made with a percentage of whole grains, its good for your figure too.

And last but not least, we must talk about ginseng. This magical root, sold in elaborate jars floating in voodoo water from the nearby temple, will cure every virus. Theres no point continuing regular treatment once you start adding ginseng to soup or tea, your issues are over. A guy on an old non flatscreen tv with a wizard beard told me so.
Apparently its fact, that ginseng will in addition to curing all known and unknown viruses - yes, I saw a sign that claimed it will cure known AND unknown viruses. Ginseng will also reverse baldness, improve sexual function, purify your thoughts, and whoever your chosen god is, he or she will love you and forgive you for your pre ginseng ways.

This is the Namdaemun market, which is near Myeongdong. They mainly sell fake clothes and hand bags. Theres a whole section of 100% polyester authetic Korean military uniforms, some dating back to pre world war 2.
Except there was no Korea prior to world war 2 unless we are talking prior to 1909, and there certainly wasnt polyester.

Cafe advertising cat was annoyed I was taking his photo, lets see him chase after me in his cat suit.
The more hilarious advertising persons are the girls out the front of the skin care shops handing out samples trying to keep warm by dancing to whatever kpop they have blasting.
By the end of their 12 hour shifts they are so tired they resemble the infamous 'left shark'.


Korea-Seoul-Myeongdong-Namdaemun - So busy even on Monday. Note: more socks.
