문화연수! Korean Culture Trip 2

Monday, 23 February 2015


On top of the first culture trip, we went for a second one. This time, we weren't going to do much walking, but to experience winter sports. Well "sports" hahaha, we were going to do ice-skating/blading and then bobsleighing. In Singapore, we have ice-skating and I have done it before so I guess it's not really much of a new experience but the bob sleigh one would be. I was initially expected snowboarding because it was so fun! Not complaining though.


We gathered really early, had breakfast on the bus (isaac toast, yum!) and then arrived at the ice-skating rink under an hour. Upon arrival, we got off and headed towards the rink. Was able to take a few photos before entering.

Got our shoes and helmets and made our way into the rink. It was packed with people and there were many who have never done it before. I thought ice-skating was one of the skills that once you picked up, you wouldn't forget but I guess I did -_- wasn't able to balance well and fell once. After a while, my feet hurt so bad that I just retired and stuck to taking photos of people who were enjoying themselves.









After this, we got back on the bus, headed for lunch and thereafter the bob sleigh place. I didn't expect such a humongous  queue but out of that 2 hours that we were there, we were only able to ride it twice. (2nd time being that we cut the queue). It was a "fun" ride, but lasting about 2 seconds, whereas we had to queue for at least 30 minutes, drag the tube all the way up the slope, and wait for our turn. Of course the going down is fun, but if you think about dragging a tube up that same slope for a 3rd time, I couldn't get myself to do so.

All ready to go!



We gave up after a while.. Whilst walking around and waiting for the time to head back to school, there were these little rides that are meant for kids (picture below). It costs 500W and runs for probably 5 minutes or so. Many people were clamoring around to get on, but most of them didn't have their parents with them to start the ride so... Anyway, guess who wanted to ride on it too?



BAM! And happily riding too, unaware and uncaring of any judgment that may befall her.

The 3 of us brought our cameras along but didn't have many things to take anyway. Had quite a fun day, just a little bit boring, and also quite tiring. Though, snowboarding would've been a much better activity in my opinion, but with regards to the cost and all, I guess this probably was the best choice possible for everyone. At least that's one boring thing I can check off my list and say that I've experienced it in Korea!



It's funny how as I'm typing this, I'm no longer going to be in Sunmoon, seeing all these friends so regularly anymore... but I do hope we will all keep in touch and meet up in time to come, reminiscing all these memories that we've shared and made together in this year that just passed.

Till next time!
