Cupcakes, Lotte World, & Picasso

It’s been a busy week and it doesn’t look like I’ll be slowing down anytime soon. 🙂

Tuesday Ohee and I started what we hope will became a regular baking get-together. We made cupcakes and glace frosting from scratch. It was my first time so I was quite pleased with how the cupcakes turned out but I was a bit disappointed with the frosting… we did half vanilla and half lemon. The vanilla had an odd consistency and the lemon was too strong. Oh well, next time we’ll try something else!

Yesterday Daniel and I went to Lotte World with my language exchange partner Jinhee and her fiancé (and now Daniel’s language exchange partner) Phillip. It was a lot of fun, we wore cute bow headbands (OK, except Phillip); ate some Koreanized Mexican food; watched a laser show, a parade, and a 4-D movie; and rode Flume Ride, Drunken Basket, Crazy Bumper Car, Jungle Adventure, and Comet Express.

can you believe people go on rides outside when it's 20 degrees??

we love lotte world!

Today I met up with Karen to see the Picasso & Modern Art exhibition at the National Museum of Art Deoksugung. I am not a huge museum fan but I really enjoyed it. We also wandered around Seoul in the cold for a bit…

Weird Korea Part 4:
I have definitely noticed the shorts/tights/Chuck Taylors trend here, which I think looks ridiculous to begin with. But then when it’s in the 20s every day, and girls continue to wear these outfits, it amazes and baffles me to no end. Don’t you own any pants?!?
