Breakfast at Yongphong Seasonal Hotel, all american food and of cause they do serve Kimchi as well in every single meal. It was never been missed, if not how do you even call it Korea?
It started to snow heavily, it was an experience of a lifetime. The snow slowly pilled up the trees and cars and even the road
look at the car, how beautiful it is.
Later that, we checked out from the hotel and I even asked myself " how could I even resist taking numerous of pictures when the snow is falling?" I don't give a damn about how cold outside is, here I go with my siblings taking myriads of pictures. It is the most beautiful thing I ever seen in my entire life *least till now*
now the snow is visible and not to mention damn farking cold out there!
We headed to Ginseng farm and we were briefed by a Korean Old Man in Korean language who is a supervisor there and translate by local Korean guide named small rain*.
We were told that every farmer need to get permission on certain machine from government to plant. Only authorize people could go into the Ginseng farm, the remaining unauthorized can only see Ginseng from far.
The facts about ginseng:
- The lifespan of Ginseng is about 1-5years.
- During winter season, the roots of Ginseng would die but these would not effect the quality and the growth of the Ginseng.
- It usually grows during Spring and Autumn season.
- Was named after ren(means human) seng- where Ginseng looks like human. For a MALE ginseng, the middle part has extra roots where it looks like penis.
- After 3-4years where the nutrient of the soil were all fully adsorb by the Ginseng, they would plant it somewhere else.
The ginseng farm. According to the Korean Old Man, he says Ginseng takes up 6 years max before the ginseng died and that is why Ginseng need to be plucked out before the 6th year. Usually the land where ginseng planted before no longer can be used as the Ginseng takes up all the nutrient in the soil of that particular area.
Each of us were given:
- sweet potatoes biscuits.
- Ginseng Milk- contains honey, milk, yogurts and blend it with ginseng
Later that, at the very same farm, we took souvenir photo of ourselves dressed in a tradisional Korean Costume, Hanbook
it was fun trying men's outfit and be a MAN ~~~
Proceed to Kimchi-Making Session where we learn how to make delicious kimchi. In Korea, for women who works are given a day of in a week of working to make Kimchi. Believe it!! and in every Korean House, there would have two fridges, where one of the friges keeps KIMCHI.
I know how to make kimchi already? so does it mean i'm ready to get married? haha
After the exciting moments, it was free lunch. Tour guide bring us to Myeondong, a major shopping district lined with quality branded goods shop. But before this we have lunch at the food court as I do really wantes to try out "jaja Noodles" of Korea. DAMN their food court is so clean even they have these Sterilize machin
My spicy seafood Jaja Noodles.
Night we proceed to Everland where it is a large theme park boasting a zoo, snow sled, and botanical garden. The park also contains three distint themes which are Water Park in Korea. Its main feature Festival World, Carribbean Bay and Speedway. Festival World includes Global Fair, American Adventure, Magic Land, European Adventure and Equiatorial Adventure, each created with is own unique style. Carribbean Bay is the very first wave pool and many people comes during summer just to ride the waves.
So I don't think the pool is even open during winter season, who on eath would swim during winter, call them crazy!
