Shopping at Samsung Seoul

Sooooo. I recently had to buy a new #laptop 😭 Lawrence the Laptop has a broken touchpad, broken microphone jack, crashing battery, a fan that’s competing with airplanes for loudest lift-off, and lose USB ports. Poor baby!

After exhaustive research I decidedto get a #Samsung notebook 9. At 13.3 inches and super lightweight, it’snice for travel. Unfortunately #Samsung US website SUCKS and I couldn’t get it ordered before my mom came to #China. So I thought, why not go to #Korea! I’m there on vacay – hone of #Samsung. No prob!

Big prob! The laptop was $400 more expensive for a lower quality product! Instead of i7 they had i5 and instead of 16RAM, it was 8RAM. 😡😡

BUT! I was headed to #China and had to have a computer, so I picked it up anyway. Lil – funniest thing. So, the dude waiting on me was the cutest guy. Very nice, good English, helpful. But I was complaining (spectacularly) about the price. So he promised to give me a gift 😬

My gift? – A selfie stick, a toothbrush holder (with toothbrush! woop!), and a car magnet 😂😅😜😝 In fact, he gave me another set to my mom as well. Lololol. Not sure it was worth $400, but you know? I’m still laughing about it – so they’re probably #priceless.

Couple notes for potential expats:

1) Did you know many #computer products bought in the #US require that you keep the product in theUS to maintain warranty?
2) Your US warranty won’t always work abroad – #Dell won’t service my #laptop in #China even though it has centers here Cause I have a US warranty.
3) Foreign warranty’s may not be as good as the US version. So be careful before agreeing to transfer warranty from one country to another.

Dream Car!

Love this #paint job! The color shifts as you move around it. Saw two cars like this yesterday – I was this color for driving along the #beach! I love #rainbow stuff!

Summer Vibes at Haeundae Beach!

#Haeundae Beach! I totally lucked out 😊 My #hotel (#ArkBlueHotel) was only 2 blocks from the #beach, was cheap, and the staff were really nice! 💕 The beach was basically empty! In mid-July!!! So nice, soft sand, cold water. . . . gorgeous experience!

Happy Birthday!

Happy #Birthday to me! 29 – planning an awesome year to finish one decade and launch another! Celebrating at the #JelloFactory in #Changchun!
