Best Western Vision Hotel

We are now staying at Vision Hotel or Best Western Vision Hotel. This is one of the most popular hotels here in Seoul, South Korea. We book our hotel accommodations few days ago.

The hotel offers great rooms with a wide array of room facilities. The hotel is clean and good, it is also few minutes walk from and to Wangsimi station. Other than the bigger mall at the station there's also a shopping mall just located at the back of the Hotel, where you can see a lot of restaurants to eat.

Our plan is to stay here for only two nights before moving to Yongin and then moved again to Icheon to our new apartment. Just few hours ago we book our additional three nights of stay here online, because we thought of too much things to carry and the hotel is good. Why we book it online when we are already here in the hotel? It is because it is much cheaper to book online rather than to walk-in.

Goodbye to our apartment

This is our last day and my last picture in our apartment in Naebalsan-dong, Edward hubby's Korean friend help us to move yesterday here in Wangsimi, he drove us here in Vision Hotel. It took an hour to get here.

Suwon experience

Last Friday we went to Suwon Immigration to change hubby's work address and extend our stay here in Korea. His new director met us Gaumbeong Station and drive us to Suwon with other English teacher, Jezzz., when we arrived in there, there's already a lot of people waiting, our number was 43 and the current number in the counter was 05, we waited too long especially when someone has a lot of file of visa application.

Suwon is about two hours from our place by train, that's why we woke very early last Friday. It is much faster at Seoul Immigration than in Suwon Immigration. It was really slow.,

Pink Treatz

Nothing special, this was my Pink treats few weeks ago, as you can see I have two packed of medium pink kisses but on the next day I woke up, only one left. Don't know what happened maybe a big bear ate it (lol) I manage to hide the other packed on my canister but the big bear has a strong sense of smell. So my pink kisses were gone again, but this time I make sure that I can taste few kisses so while his eating it and making a promise to me to buy me more chocolates I am eating few pieces.

I recently sent money to Philippines using Xoom Wire Transfer Service because it is f*** killing me to verify my mother's paypal account. Paypal says they send two small deposits to my mother's bank account but never received it yet, I have a smart money card with mastercard logo but don’t know how to use it. (lol) Until I stumble at this site called Xoom.

Details about Xoom

  1. Using Xoom you can send money to most countries in the world by wire transfer method.
  2. Payment Method: You can pay Xoom by Bank Account, Paypal or a Credit card.
  3. Xoom Fees: There are charges involved if you want to send money by Xoom nothing is free now a days, charges depends upon the amount of money you’ve sent. See Xoom Fees and Charges.
  4. Xoom Money transfer limit: The maximum amount of money you can send is $6000 per 30 days or 1 month in equivalent.
  5. Xoom tracking : You can track your money transaction using a tracking number you get after you give your money transfer order. Click on Xoom Money Transfer Tracking to track your current money transfer transactions.
I'll post the review when the money landed to Philippines already. (lol)

Last night we went to Gimpo International Airport I mean Gimpo Station where E-mart was located.

I would definitely say I love mall here in Korea, because everything is free taste when it comes too food and drinks, even if you don't have money you're going to be full tasting all the food inside E-mart, not like in Philippines only your eyes where going to be full if you don't have money.

I was tempted to taste the wine, hehehe but so ashame to do it. So we just roam around to find filter for our water container. We also did a window shopping for computers because hubby is planning to buy one for me since we are not going to travel this following months.

After buying the said filter we have our food shopping, it is just for treats. It's been a week since hubby is craving for KFC but cannot find one here so we buy a substitute.,

Another purpose why we went to Gimpo which is three station from Ujangsan was to get some box that is free for E-mart customers, we need box for our stuffs to have an easy transfer.

At the left side is the paparazzi pic of my hubby while carrying the boxes, I took it out of his knowing.


We have few more days left to stay in the apartment, at the end of the month we gotta move because hubby's work contract will soon expired and the school will not pay the rentals anymore.

Mexican food is one of our favorite food, so we decided to make our own nachos version. We went shopping at the new super market for our spices.

1 big pack of Nacho crackers
green onions
spicy salsa
nacho cheese
mozarella cheese
ground beef

How to prepare:

Just put them all together

Our Nachos has no ground beef, too lazy to have it. Hubby's preparation(top)

Our lovely town is aiming for progressive development, ODIONGAN COMMERCIAL CENTER is now open for business, a lot of business owners already transferred inside this building like Natasha, and of course the new drug store MERCURY DRUG STORE, the very first Mercury Drug Store in Romblon.

Lovely color right? Pink na Pink...last June 2009 this building is still under-construction, I never expected that this building will look like this because before it looks dull. Other locals call this as their mini-mall.

I'm sure now, locals don't need to wait for medicine stocks coming from Manila because there's already a big drug store in town.

Steak on Valentines Day...

Valentines Day is today but we celebrated it last night because Korea is celebrating Lunar New Year and most of the establishment/store were closed as what the Korean guy in the gym said to my husband during their work-out . It seems it is not New Year here, it so peacefully quiet, no vehicles, no group of people passing by in the street in front of our apartment which is a busy street in normal days. Everything is so peaceful, can't hear any noises from the main street., my husband wonder if the Pizza place is also closed..,

Well, last night we went to Balsan Station, where another branch of Outback Steakhouse where located, but my husband says VIPS is also present there. So he ask me where I want to go, I choose VIPS for a change.

It is located at the second floor and as we go inside, we've seen a lot of people having their meal. The staffs are nice, OMG! that's all I can say when I open their menu, steak where so expensive., I enjoy their food especially those seafood in the salad bar, after our meal we had a yogurt ice cream. The food in the salad bar is all you can eat, that's the good thing even their steak is gold. (lol) I did not manage to take a picture of the food because it seems so ashameful, they might thought I am barbarian.

Just another Valentine Card

Who said that Valentines Card is always red? Blue suits too, lol.

Happy Valentines Day Everyone

Just a simple thought of saying Happy Valentines to everybody, hope you like my card.
