 I was so busy sewing, that's why no new updates for a few weeks. I know that I always busy eventhough staying at home. But I do spend time with Hanaa, my lil daughter a.k.a my best friend (as Hanaa always says; you're my best friend mom!). One of the most frequent activities that we do at home is, Tea Party!!! I made the picnic mat for her for this purpose, ok? so that she knew that I would definitely sew something for her.hehe.

SCHOOL WINTER CONCERT

 I actually did not want to make this entry because if I try to remember the event, I feel so sad and heartbroken for the kids. They both were having a winter concert at school and they were looking forward for us to see them performing.
 
But, too bad at that time, my husband had to outstation to Busan and my lil daughter Hanaa was having a high fever. The concert was at night so I could not go. But since they had been practicing hard, the school insisted to take care of them. Instead of coming home and going with parents later in the afternoon, the school let them stay back until the concert finished. So they need to bring the concert clothes in the morning.
 
Talking about the clothes, the teacher requested them to be in white shirt/blouse and black pants/skirt. Daniel had it since before but Damia, I did order from online shopping site. After a few days, they called saying that none of those are available. Since Hanaa was not well and I could not go out for shopping, I just decided to sew for her the blouse and the skirt.
 
She was so happy when trying out those two and imagining how pretty she would be during the concert. These two pictures was taken at home, a day before the concert.
 
 
 
But during the concert, all the girls had to tie their hair. And her hair a bit awful, because she was at the school from the morning. This was after the concert, they were eating cookies and chocolates. Credit to my friend for the pictures and a few videos. She was there for her daughter, Anis, Daniel's classmate.
 
 
Before the concert started. Spotted Damia in the middle. 
 
 Daniel was a bit upset without my presence there.
 
Aigoo..what Damia and her classmate were doing..something has dropped maybe?hehe.
 
 
The close-up shot for my handmade blouse and skirt. I love this material, I had it sometime ago from Gwanjang market as well as the lining.

GYEONGBOKGUNG PALACE, SEOUL

I have to thank to my husband's cousin haha, because of her little family came to Korea we brought them here. My husband went there a few times already bringing some friends before. We just did not have a good timing to go, to many things need to be done when my husband was on leave. So I arrived here finally after one year living in Korea. ;)
 
This time we went there on Saturday, just after Daniel's school field trip here a day before. So, he became the tourist guide again, amazingly told us about King Sejong. I believed that he got the story from his teacher.
 
Eventhough it was a bit windy and cold that day (early autum, end November) but we still went there to catch our precious time with my husband's cousins.
 
They have this show at 10 am sharp everyday except on Tuesday (close).It was a guards changing session ceremony. It was a great show with some loud musics, we felt like in the Korean old film.haha
 


 
Met my Korean twin, haha. happened to meet this Korean teenager who could speak English very well.





 
As usual, hard to take a nice pic together.
 
Look at Damia!


 
 
 Ahh, they did not feel tired standing like a warrior guarding the palace.hehe.
 


 
Gotcha!
 
The cousin and her son. We were on the train, heading to our lunch in Dongdaemun.

 
 
Near to the Gwanhamun train station, the King Sejong.

 
Lunch at Dongdaemun
 
The menu of the day, sotong sambal and ikan bakar.

KOREAN CLASS @ CERAMIC CENTRE

 Ahh.. as for this moment, I already quit my Korean class due to family commitment and weather exposure for hanaa. But I always miss the class.
 
Let me share you one of the lessons that we had outside the classroom. The teacher (next to Hanaa) brought us here, the ceramic centre. It was so fun learning Korean outside the classroom and at the same time we could learn something else, ceramic class! Sounds fun, huh? We used to have once in cooking class, and they also visited a few places as part of outside classroom activities such as Nami Island, Guri flower park etc. I just joined which classes that I could.
 
 
 
My artwork. First time to do this and me & hanaa had so much fun. Hanaa kept asking me to make cat.hehe. 
 
They gave the cookie cutter and hanaa was making ceramic cookies.hehe. 
 
I really hope that one day we can come here again...

BUYING HALAL MEAT IN ITAEWON

 Where we bought halal meat in Itaewon. The shop is next to the entrance to the Masjid. Look at the cold storage at the right side. When he opened it, I was so shocked, a lot of meat and chicken too. I heard they slaughtered on every Friday so that is why their stock is always fresh. We can request to be cut into cube for easing cooking.
 
 
They also have some other stuffs too mainly spices and can food, all are imported and the most important thing is Halal. Another cold storage at this corner too.

COEX AQUARIUM, GANGNAM

We went to COEX Aquarium in Gangnam on the second hari raya last year. I was not well due to a few days cooking for the embassy celebration and some cakes orders but I still insisted to go out. I did not want to miss the time with the kids and we had to do as much thing as possible when Papa was on leave.
 
It was the second or third time for Daniel as he had visited the aquarium for his school field trip. But still he was enjoying our visit and as usual acting as the tourist guide.haha.
 


My loves were looking at some fishes in the aquarium. Owh, I always miss them no matter how much I have spent my time with them.
 
See my tired looking face? I was 39c at that time and was the only one who felt cold in there. My head was spinning but still acted like nothing for the sake of the kids.

 
While they were spending their times looking at this kind of stuffs, I was resting on a bench.
 
So creative, it looked like homemade aquarium, haha. Thanks to hubby for snapping the pictures.


 
Damia was tired and hungry.
 
Exhausted faces to finish a long way in the aquarium. We skipped a few corners though.
 
Daniel said, spidey snow crab.
