If there’s one item that is hard to find in South Korea that is underarm deodorant for men,  spray or roll on. It seems Korean mean doesn’t use underarm deodorant so if ever you find this item they will be a bit expensive. My husband and I always made sure that we bought few deodorants for men when we are out of the country, like when we travel to Russia two months ago we bought axe deodorant at a local store on our last day.

Use of underarm deodorant is one of the best and most effective ways to control body odor and sweating and probably Koreans were aware of this, and with the absence of deodorant from most local stores does it only mean Korean men don’t sweat? If you are in Korea and  looking for underarm deodorant spray you will surely find supply at any Asian Store (World Mart, World Food) around you, if can’t find one Watsons sell Nivea Underarm spray for men.

When  I bought my phone it has free jelly case for protection just in case I accidentally drop my phone but I am not contented with having it just that way so when received a weekly sale information from Gmarket I immediately look for the case that will fit my phone.  The sale is more than 50% off and I know I can’t find this kind of deal in any store around us so I ordered one case – Hera Black/Hot Pink, I received my order in just 2 days. I am happy with the quick delivery and getting a free screen protection from the seller, the case was very stylish, handy and in good quality. Love the color as well!

The other day while surfing through Gmarket I found new shirts on sale, I was hesitant if I am going to buy new shirts or not. I just added the shirts I like in my shopping cart but the next day I received an alert that one of the shirts in my shopping cart is out stock.  I chose another shirt and decided to order right away.
