Annyeong-Haseyo (Part 1) – The Story From Seoul

14 Sep



today is my 7th day in Seoul, Korea.. 🙂

i came to Seoul on 8th September to attend the 15th World Congress of Neurosurgery, at the COEX Convention and Exhibition Center..

and to present my research work as well..

i’m very grateful to the organizer for selecting me as one of the recipients of the “Travel Grant For Young Neurosurgeon“.. the grant was supported by DePuy Synthes and Johnson & Johnson Company..

the grant has almost covered both my travelling cost and accommodation here in Seoul.. 🙂

this is my hotel room at Samsung Casaville Residence.. it is small but very comfortable.. 🙂

and there is a mini kitchen in the room as well.. 🙂

besides the congress and academic sessions, the organizer has arranged a Korean Night on 11th September for all the participants.. a joint buffet dinner with entertainment shows.. ^_^

the traditional Korean dance..

two k-pop groups were invited as well.. the Girls Generation..

and the f(x) with their famous song “Electric Shock“.. ^_^

the congress was ended on 13th September..

i love Seoul very much.. the season now is autumn.. the city is very clean.. and the public transport here is very convenient.. although most of the peoples here don’t speak English, they are very friendly and helpful to the tourists.. 🙂

the street performance..

the Trillion Tower nearby the COEX, in commemoration of the achievement of 1 trillion dollars in trade..

an animal hospital..

the “Gangnam Style” mineral water..

the banana milk.. taste nice..  🙂

i’ve the great opportunity to taste the “original” Korean food.. this is the dolsot bibimbap..

(dolsot = stone pot, bibimbap = mixed rice with vegetables, sliced meat, egg and chilli pepper paste)..

the famous seafood and green onion Korean pancake..

the bamboo rice, which is famous in Damyang region.. the green bottle is “7-Up”..

the fragrant bamboo rice..

even the lunch box provided by the congress organizer is so tasty as well.. 🙂

since there is a kitchen in my hotel room, so let’s try the Korean instant noodle.. :p

yummy.. the hottest and spiciest instant noodle i’ve ever tried..

ha.. this is Hanbok, the traditional Korean dress..

hehe.. with sweet Korean girl.. looks like playing Korean drama.. :p

i’m flying back to Malaysia tomorrow.. and will share with you all more pictures from Korea soon..  🙂
