Today I called up a new friend, Kristen, and she agreed she would go to Home Plus with me! I’ve wanted to go for a while but I’ve never known where one was. All I could find was information about a Home Plus in Jamsil, close to Lotte World. It’s far from Yonsei, but we decided to go anyway.
When we got there, we were amazed…it was about 5 stories high with every floor being for something different! They even had criss-crossing escalators that had no steps and you took your cart on them! It was amazing and I genuinely wish our stores back in the states were like this.
We each had lists of things we needed, but we wandered quite a bit, haha. I got several things I needed like...
a cup/fork/spoon set (which technically was in the children’s section, but I’m a child at heart) that had Miffy the bunny on it,
a super cute umbrella with really adorable details (I WILL find a way to get this back to the states),
a shirt that I thought was hilarious,
and a present for Andi back home (and presents for others, but those are a surprise so no pictures!)
I didn’t take a picture of the cute cardigan I got (I don’t know why) or the extra pillow I bought, but it was a pretty productive day.
After the long subway ride back, my arms packed full of things to hold, we stopped by a Holly’s Coffee where I got a sandwich to take home for dinner and Kristen broke a 50 for change to use a cab to get back to her hotel.
When we parted ways, I had to walk all the way back up to SK Global house…and it was scorching hot again. I was sweating so bad and that was about when I realized I hadn’t eaten anything all day. My stomach was crying out in pain…I rushed home and immediately opened the sandwich to eat, but not before I got a picture to show~
It was ham and cheese, I think, but it was great. The bread was awesome! The whole sandwich was only around 3,000-4,000 won. After I ate it, I downed a good bit of Chilsung Cider and felt a lot better. The air conditioning is on and I feel pretty good~
I’m exhausted though, because I walked a lot. We weren’t exactly sure where the Home Plust market was when we exited the subway, but we found it after a long bout of walking. Either way, it was a really fun day and I had a blast with Kristen.
We have a lot in common so I think it’ll be a fun semester with her~
Tomorrow I have a skype date with Andi, so who knows if I’ll do much aside from that! I’ll update you all later!
