me with ta-sem
in the end we went into this greenhouse like place to shoot and got a pretty nice shot. to be honest, it wasn't the diva shot that i want (all evil and bloody), and this looks like it was shot in the spring and not in winter. haha. but i like it SO WHAT. pretend it's saya cosing as diva la huh.
had a nice streetfood kinda dinner. dokboggi, oden, some egg-sushi thingy and fried stuff - pretty interesting. had to stand and eat them but it's actually waaaay better than all the samgyeopsal i've eaten (probably because i've been eating so much meat for the past few days i'm getting sick of it, can you imagine... x.x) while waiting, i managed to do some shopping at various cosmetic shops - and i shouldn't have had @.@ carrying stuff around in the countdown crowd is a big mistake. but poor 00, he had to carry his snowboard around. (eh no one told you to go snowboard before that you see hurhurhuhr)
had to wait another hour or so for 00 and some others to reach, so i went to shop for some cosmetics. didn't really have much time to shop, and actually now wasn't really the best time to shop, but it doesn't seem like i'll have much opportunities to do so later anyway. i don't know how these people can just stand lazing around mac, but i guess nobody feels like moving when it's -12 outside. well, i think i prefer to be frozen than to do nothing. absolutely dislike waiting.
when we came back, 00 was there but it seems we had to continue to wait for some of his other friends to reach. sighs. bought the coffee affogato for 00 and jimin (since he got me one the the day before too heh) and rotted.
when we finally moved out, it was 1030+ and so cold outside. the crowd was already starting to fill, and rows of police barriers started to form.
it was actually already 11+ when we stood in front of the stage. and guess what. we have to wait an hour before the countdown. duh. of course. we needed to shove our way here early to grab a place ma. actually i wasn't aware that we had to come early to 'chope' a place so that we can see a bit of the concert and the fireworks. thought it was something like our country where you could just go up some hotel and watch it from a safe distance. bleah. so my poor feet was freezing for an hour+ before anything happened. but i couldn't really see much =_= oh i did see a lot of couples kissing, and this lonely old man just beside me. wonder how he feels to be surrounded by the kissing fishes.
the concert was interesting because they sing circle of life and this polka miku song. otherwise... not much to see. i was glad when 2012 was over. but i didn't really feel the 'hey it's 2013!' though. x_x
yay. oh look, fireworks. nono, not the one on the left, that's just a streetlamp i think. you mean you can't see? neither could i. it was like specks of light. bleah. so not what i had in mine.
we stopped at mac for a bit of rest before we decided to hang around and have a round of drinks at a nearby liquor shop. it was funny when the attendant pointed out some of us to check our age and 00 was one of them! hahah. and how strange that they let me get away just by saying i'm a foreigner. we sat down and ordered some food thereafter.
man, for some reasons, everything we ordered was red in color - kimchi stir fry, kimchi jjige, some funny snail cold noodles and the only proper one was probably the tomato scrambled eggs (which, to 00 is the one food he dislikes because of the ketchup). the makkgoli and this lemon liquor was awesome though. 19% but it totally didn't feel like you were drinking alcohol! but... don't spicy food NOT go along with alcohol!?
we finally finished off around 630. ughhh. my poor lungs. and eyes.
oh it was also snowing. so nice. see all the blurry specs?
when we finally reached yong-in, it was nearing 8am already. the taxi wouldn't drive us in due to the snow and the slippery uphill so we had to walk in. well, it was good for me since i get some picture taking time! wished i could have taken more but if i stop everyone will start to wait for me and i know how super cold and tired they are now. oh well.
woke up only at 4+. wow. 00 was called to a family meeting so i had to entertain myself. boo hoo. d-man prepared cup noodles for me, so i ate it, then snuggled myself to a corner sofa (as usual) to continue sleeping, since i had nothing to do anyway. when 00 was finally back, it was impossible to go out as no taxis wanna come over, so we ended up ordering takeout. takeout came in 30-40mins. had jajangmyeon finally!
it was already 8+ when we were done. since there's nothing much to do, ended up sleeping after some movies...
