So it’s only been Day 8 of our Korea “vacation” and I’m running out of cash already. We still have more than a week left here and I srsly have no idea how I’ll manage my budget. And to think most of the time, Jimmy’s bosses and colleagues even treat us to lunch and dinner! Anyway, I said I’ll be updating you guys on what we’ve been up to here and the first post was about the food that I’ve eaten here for the first time. This time around, I’ll share with you the things that have eaten up my money. Excuse my materialism. I REALLY CANNOT REFUSE THESE AWESOME THINGS T_____T!!! Some of these are pasalubong but I won’t tell you which ones.

Korean cosmetics (win in life so much).
I know you guys will agree with me when I say that whoever invented the BB cream should be awarded a Nobel prize. It’s so fucking awesome, I cannot go out of the house without it anymore! I’ve personally been using The Face Shop’s Aqua chorva but pretty much anything from any brand is worth buying. Also, Korean cosmetics are formulated for Asian skin and in general are really good and much much cheaper than Japanese products (which IMO are super quality) so I know you won’t take it against me if I hoard them. How can I not?! The shops give away so much samples!!! PS: if you’re younger than 20, I really don’t recommend that you use make-up. It’s better to be a natural beauty / ugly duckling than a 25 y/o who looks like she’s had 3 kids and been through 2 divorces.
YG Kpop merchandise.
Contrary to popular belief, I really don’t buy Kpop merch. I got very few CDs and that’s it. But I bought my 2nd 2NE1 album (because you know… we’ll be seeing them next month) and of course, my belove Big Bang’s latest album, too! And how can I say no to those super adorable BIG BANG SOCKS?!?! And YG name plates! And oh, why the hell is there a Kim Junsu?
Do you guys remember the Funny Sexy Fan Sign Project that I started last month? Well, it has finally come to an end and I’m very surprised that quite a number of people joined! THANK YOU SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, GAIZ!!! I expected only two people to submit their entries, one of them being Jimmy Kim. Fortunately, more people participated and I’d like to share with you their very sweet, touching and awesome entries! Click on the images to make ‘em bigger!

She gave me the actual drawing when we saw each other at the 2AM Meet and Greet at McKinley! Cute!

I’m not sure if he even meant to submit this as an entry but whatever, it’s made of super duper win!!! How do you even do that?! I never imagined my self as a cartoon character but oh well… I apparently look better as a cartoon! Here’s another version. ^^
I don’t know why but I’ve been itching to blog on FunnySexy for days now, but I never got the chance to sit down and write my profound and life-altering thoughts. As you probably know, I’m in the “Land of the Morning Calm” at the moment, otherwise known as the birthplace of Kim Jaejoong, and since I can’t properly write (schedule’s been super hectic from all the eating), I’ll just share with you some of the food that I’ve tried here for the first time.
DAY 1: 길거리 음식 Gilgoeri Eumsik more popularly known in the English-speaking countries as STREET FOOD.
Although I may have eaten some of these in Korean restos back home, it’s a delight to see these street food where they belong. They’re a must-try when you go to Korea and I actually ate them when I was here for the first time! Do not expect them to be as cheap as the isaw and kwek-kwek though. They’re worth around Php 40-100!
