Chungmuro Station, Seoul, ROK
One of my favorite places,to visit in #Seoul is the park at #Yeouido. I visited Seoul in 2013 during June and it was already SO HOT that my plans of wandering the city died pretty quickly. Instead I packed picnic lunches and spent a week mostly wandering from air conditioned sites (e.g. Ciex & National Museum) in the afternoon to the Hanyang (sp?) park of an evening. Turned into one of my favorite trips to Seoul solo. ❤

Pretty shoes! I love how ladylike these look 💕
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.
There is no way on earth you can convince me that this little #Korean guy and his pouch are not the #CUTEST things you’ve seen today. I mean the dude comes with hat, pouch, little shoes and all. 💙 He is seriously #adorable and now proudly hangs from my phone in a position of honor where I can look at him every day and smile! 😊
