We went to the traditional Hanok Village today to celebrate New Years. The celebrations and stuff were outside and it was soooo fricken cold that day too.

|Itinerary for the day|
Step 1) Choose your fortune
Step 2) Take the block of wood with the print and stamp it on your paper as demonstrated by Tanjin
3) Voila! (I choose the extremely good luck.)
After making our own fortune, we made new years wishes!
|mine is the one in the centre =)|
So when we met up with the others, I made another wish with them... This one I think I can share with you all.
Games, mascots, and other randoms around the village.
|Korean tops/beyblade looking things. |
You have to whip the wooden block and it spins.
|Yes, I got it in again! I'm starting to get good at this!|
|People ice skating|
|Down in the cold dirty well....|
The shows finally began. Due to the weather, we kind of left in the middle of it all. Plus, most of us have already the farmer's dance before. Ya, there was a lot of people.
One of the best parts of the day was meeting up with Reem (our International House/TESL buddy from Toronto!) and her two friends who are also currently living in Korea to teach English. We scrambled in the closest cafe to get some warmth and food. Thank you for the hot choco and bagel Reem!
|L-R: Trish, Reem, Tiffany, Cat, and Kris|

|Hey, it's F.T. Island!|
|Big Bang advertising North Face. These guys are everywhere!|
Coming home after our shopping trip with bags of awesomeness!!!!!!
Best purchase of the day: Vans for 19000 won. best day ever.
|I didn't have to bargain for these babies!|
