Since I had the day off work today, I made plans to drag Drew to this underground shopping mall in Seoul. I went a couple days ago with friends, and I really wanted to go back! I talked this place up like crazy. Drew was even excited and he knew it was a day filled with shopping! (We both hate shopping... why was this ever a good idea?!)
It was an absolutely beautiful morning, in my midwestern opinion! It was snowing like crazy, and the roads were covered in snow. It was just so pretty!
Once we got to the Express Bus Terminal, we went to the flower market that was currently turned into a GIANT Christmas bazaar. Just imagine Christmas vomited all over a building. It's like you were there.
After we were all Christmas decoration-ed out, we went next door to the Shinsegae mall. Korea has the biggest malls ever. I mean, I get lost in Glenbrook Square Mall, and I've been shopping there for 23 years! I don't know how anyone finds their way around malls here. This place was incredible. We could NEVER afford to shop at any of the stores, but it was so fun to window shop! Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Balenciaga, Dior... the list goes on and on. The mall was gorgeous, and everything and everyone in it was as well!
After walking throughout Shinsegae mall, we walked across the street to the Express Bus Terminal to the GIANT underground shopping mall. First- before shopping... we needed a little something to eat! Sushi Bar! I REALLY wish I liked sushi. I think it tastes alright, but I can't get past the texture and the fact that it's raw fish. Ugh. Drew chowed down on sushi, but I stuck to anything cooked.
