Shopping Like I Live in South Korea

February 23, 2018

So there’s this magical place in South Korea called Daiso, and it has everything you could possibly want in life. Ok, so maybe not – everything, but it has heaps of homeware goods that make me wish I had a home. Especially since I’ve started looking at apartments back home for my return (which is still weird to me).

Emily, Julie, and I poked around Daiso with nothing super specific in mind to get. But you know how it is – you don’t know what you need until a hedge hog dust mop looks at you, and then you know.

I need it.

So maybe it’s a good thing that I don’t have spare room in my backpack to bring things home. Cause that little guy would be tucked away so fast …

We continued to browse all three floors, and I said, “this is so cute” far too many times.


We then went to Homeplus where I magically found chips and salsa. You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl.


Just FYI – it’s still very cold here. Or maybe I’m just a big baby about colder temperatures (probable). But whatever the case may be, wandering around and exploring is almost physically painful. So we decided that it would be a great day to grab lunch and watch Black Panther at the nearby movie theater.

Emily was craving Korean Chinese food, so we stopped off at this tiny little restaurant on the fourth floor of a decently sketchy building. I had 짜장면 (jajangmyeon) which is a thick sauce and noodles underneath. If I’m being honest, it was ok. Not my favorite, but still decent. It was just super heavy.


We then headed over to the movie theater and settled in for Black Panther. And let me tell you, this movie was worth the hype. I really liked it, and I definitely recommend seeing it.
