Back to Where We Were


So we are here at Daecheon Station waiting for the Mugunghwa that will take us to Asan Station.

I want to cling on any pillar just so I don’t have to leave Korea just yet.

I couldn’t ven imagine being at work tomorrow. ☹

Yay! Boryeong Mud Festival!

It was definitely an experience I wouldn’t forget. The mud definitely had good effect on the skin. The people were fun and willing to participate in the activities.

This trip was one for the books because of this festival!

Best Chicken in Town


We cannot deny the Koreans’ love for fried chicken. This is evidenced by the fact that there are a lot of chicken and beer bars found in every nook and cranny of the country. 

The best of this lot, for me, is Nene Chicken. It is juicy and doesn’t have a lot of batter. And the original flavor will make tou forget of any other chicken jpint anywhere in the world.

So, it was great news that we found a branch here in Boryeong!

Fun Times


We entered the festival area today. The crowd is considerably less than the weekend crowd. 

The line to the activities were shorter. I wonder, though, why most of the activities are violent in nature?

Maybe it’s the Korean way of letting of steam. But, what is also important to notice is that everyone are friends in the end.

I was afraid to try the activities because I might go game face on them. My competitive spirit might not distinguish playtime from a tournament. 

Lunch Break


Since the festival area is on a break, we decided to go have brunch. We found this nearby seafood place which offers seafood ramyeon.

Since it was a littlw cold today, food to keep us warm isn’t a bad choice. 

And since we’re on the topic of seafood, we ordered seafood pancake (해물파전), my absolute favorite Korean food, too!

What You See, What You Get


Walking along the low tide shore this morning and we are treated to a foggy delight. The crowd has definitely subsided and the working people are, I suppose, already at work. 

We are left with students on summer break enjoying their much needed rest and relaxation (like me). And families enjoying bonding time.

From Seoul, I went to Boryeong to join in the Boryeong Mud Festival. And since it was the weekend, the place was packed! We didn’t go inside the mud area because (1) we arrived at around 2 PM and (2) there were really a lot of people.

It was a fun experience and a different kind of celebration that is by the beach!
