I lost my soul in Seoul


The first few words that came across my mind when I think of South Korea are Psy, Gangnam Style or Winter Sonata, the most romantic drama series which I've ever seen besides Sanay Wala Nang Wakas. Seoul which is very rich of its culture, history, architecture, food and not to forget K-Pop have been sort of my inspiration to come here.

I told my parents that I'm going to Seoul two weeks before my flight, they were rather surprised. The thought of snowboarding and to unwind was something that I was looking forward though I'm in the midst of peak period of audit. Fast forward, on the 20th February 2013, Thaqif Roslim, Mimie Karim, Naqyah Roslim and I touched down at Incheon International Airport.

I'm not writing that much but here are some of the pictures (sorry again not in chronological orders) that I have taken during my trip.

If in England, football can be called as a religion, in South Korea, it's Psy

The magnificent view at Jisan Forest Ski Resort. They are like dancers.
