Happy Birthday

Saturday was my birthday. Fortunately, despite the prediction, this was not also the end of the world. As it turned out, it was a good day, if not a little overcast and rainy here in South Korea’s capital. I took a trip to Dongdaemun to wander the shops – I got a new pair of jeans but was able to resist purchasing a pair of outrageously high heels on sale. I do love the outrageously high heels that are in fashion right now and already own a couple of very impractical pairs. I got some lotions and potions to stay the tragic effects of ageing – I am, afterall, a year older than I was before the weekend started. Then I got a scrub and spent a few hours relaxing at the sauna. This was followed by a coffee and delicious blueberry yoghurt waffle from my favourite Cafe Bene. And then beer with friends to conclude the day.

Sunday was spent napping.

South Korea holidays

There weather has been fairly nice for the past few days, which was lucky since we had the Buddha Birthday weekend. I popped up to the lantern parade last night and the street festival today, though both seemed little changed from the last time I attended a few years back. After wandering around the street festival I was able to enjoy my first iced coffee of the year, which is always a treat.

On the theme of nice weather, a few days ago I went for a walk around Samcheong Park. Some photos:
