This year i spent my old n new quite different from previous years… I put my self in the crowd ^ ^ the thing that I didn’t use to do before ^ ^
I had dinner with friends in MyeongDong, and had Crepes.. We had great dinner ^ ^ (too much actually for me :D) And after that, some friends went back to dorm, while me and others continued for the next round 😀
Unfortunately it was terribly cold outside, so we decided to wait for the countdown in Dunkin, which means, i ordered Hot Choco hihihi….around 11pm.. er started to go out again… and lucky cos there were so many people..i felt warmer at least.
When i said so many, it means sooooo many..cos not only people who want to countdown in Jongak, but also some demonstrants hahaha…so it was totally crowded…plus the polices.. Wow… They also brought flags to protest the president..
Some pics of the crowd
But I enjoyed it ^ ^
(video of the countdown will be uploaded, it was so interesting 🙂 )
I arrived at dorm around 1AM, and set alarm to wake up in the morning, to say hi to the first sunrise ^ ^ My friend told me, it’s a culture in here to see the first sunrise of the new year… *wow, cool*, since i love it, so i join her too 😀 at first we wanted to go to the beach, but it was too far.. plus it’s gonna be colder and windy… moreover my condition still not fully recovered (yeah..gotta bad flu, and still tired a bit..but it didn’t stop me to see the sunrise ^ ^ )
So we decided to go to Namsan Tower
We checked the sunrise will be 7.46AM, so we arranged to meet in the station at 6.40AM..
I woke up around 5.45AM, and quickly went to the subway 😀 and i was surprised… cos to get the bus, we had to take the queue… *wow another crowd* and in the bus it was so crowded too…but lucky we got a seat :D. My friend came with her boyfriend…
But it was nothing….When we arrived in Namsan, i was more surprised… there were so many people had been there while we arrived… *wow, what time did they arrive there??*
another pictures of the crowd
see some people already took their place on the tree.. wow wow n wow…and don’t ask bout the weather..it was cold…around -8 or -9 i guess…
But i was lucky to go there with my friend…they brought kimbab for breakfast hihihi… and after the watching sunrise, I got sandwich and warm water…What a perfect ^ ^
After went up and finally decided to go down again, cos we didn’t get a good spot…finally we satisfied by sneaking the sunrise that blocked with the big tree…but still we could see the beauty of the sun that slowly appear from the red sky untill the full sun…it was beautiful.
and i took the pic like every second hahhaa…
Wish you have a great new year
