Black Bag for Traveling

My husband needs a bag so we bought one tonight in the market, his old blue bag was thrown already. It has holes already and ripped off as well, I think it was not handled properly in the plane.

The bag store we went to has a lot of stocks from backpack to duffel bags, body bags and shoulder bags. My husband like a duffel sports bag where you will just carry it but what I like is a bag that you can put on your back and the moment I saw the bag above I know it is already the right bag because he doesn’t like those colorful backpacks.

Books, Dictionary and Postcards Haul from Incheon International Airport

I went to Seoul yesterday to accompany my husband in the airport. He left to Canada yesterday for emergency reason, I didn’t left the airport until my husband’s scheduled departing time. When I know it is already boarding time I left the bench and walk around the Incheon International Airport I bumped to K Books. Stationery in the departure area my plan is just too look for postcards that I can send to few of my friends online, the postcards I have bought in Insadong few months ago were left in the Philippines.

I have found several postcards but they are expensive as expected when you are buying in the airport. While looking around I found a book that interests me I remember an online friend that is so fascinated with Korea so I bought it for her but then I decided to buy one for me as well, gladly there’s two left because the third one is a sample. I also bought a English – Korean dictionary, I am planning to learn few words of Hangul.

White Laundry Soap

Laundry soap in Korea is really quite different from most laundry soap that are strong and with nice scent. The other day we bought laundry soap,  I used it when I wash under garments. We wash our clothes in washing machine but I am used of washing small pieces by hands,  I thought this soap would be on lime flavor but it turns out it is not. It is just ordinary soap without scent and just  a plain white soap no strong mixture that could harm my hands.
