Honeymoon ≠ Mating Period

Practicum has ended and now I'm doing my last lap in NIE before I become a full fledged teacher. Very relaxed but at the same time anxious and looking forward towards our Big Day...

Anyway, the one thing that we look forward to is not the wedding but it's the event after.Honeymoon-ing does not only mean a time for mating but it's also a time to enjoy ourselves in another country.

I have mentioned earlier that we will be going to Korea for our honeymoon, a Muslim tour package organized by Shahidah travel. The actual itinerary is already out as following:

Day 01: Singapore (Meals on board/Halal Dinner)
Assemble at 5.05am at Changi Airport Terminal 2. Depart on SQ for your flight to Seoul.
 Upon arrival, meet & greet. Proceed to Yangpyeong English Village, where the famous drama "Boys Above The Flowers" did their filming.

Day 02 : Seoul/Nam-I Island/ Mt.Sorak (Breakfast/ Halal Lunch)

Have a fun-filled experience at Everland. Everland includes a zoo, snow sledding, and botanical garden.
 It has three distinct themes namely Festival World, Caribbean Bay and Speedway. Proceed to Nam I-Island which is famous for its beautiful tree lined roads and one of the shooting places for the popular love story film “Winter Sonata”. Proceed to Chuncheon Myeongdong, where also famous because of several scenes from “Winter Sonata”. Enjoy the shopping experience.

Day 03 : Mt. Sorak/Ski Resort (Breakfast)
Visit to Mt.Sorak also called as Mt Seolsan and Mt Seolbongsan. Were named Seorak because the snow would not melt for a long time and its rock stay white like snow. Then check-in ski resort.

Day 04 : Ski Resort (Breakfast)
Full day ski tour with unforgettable experience. This valley contains many beautiful sites, views and is well worth a day visit.

Day 05 : Ski Resort/Seoul (Breakfast/Halal Lunch)
Begin the day with a morning tour to Gyeongbok Palace, most comprehensive and grandest of the five palaces of Joseon Dynasty, and National Folk Museum. The Blue House, National Ginseng Outlet, Amethyst Showroom. Proceed to Itaewon, the most exotic place in Seoul where you can eat, enjoy yourself and go shopping, all under a “fusion” cultural code. Enjoy at Lotte World, gigantic multi purpose complex featuring shopping malls, sports facilities, an indoor and outdoor theme park, a deluxe hotel and folk museum.

Day 06 : Seoul - Singapore (Breakfast)
After breakfast, enjoy Kimchi making experience & opportunity to wear traditional Korean costume Han-Bok. Then proceed for shopping spree at Namdaemun, Korea’s oldest open air wholesale market and Dongdaemun Market - Shopping Kingdom of Seoul with about 20 shopping malls, 30,000 stores and around 50,000 wholesalers
. Transfer to airport for flight back to Singapore.

What's exciting about this trip is that it will be winter season and our main destination will be that of the ski resort, so therefore, we will be able to experience sub-zero temperatures. Both of us were so excited that we quickly went to start purchasing our winter wear. 

As it's well-known that in Singapore, the winter clothing sold here are pretty costly. However, we have found the best place to buy quite cheap winter clothing which can be found in the heartlands. We went to this shop down at Sunshine place called Gidel and they sell winter clothings for mostly less than SGD90! Unfortunately, they do not sell the accessories such as socks, snowcap, longjohns, gloves, etc.... Therefore, we still have yet to buy them...which is probably soon.

Anyway, I just bought a luggage bag for my trip...yay-ness!~

I apologize for the horrible make-up. 
We call it the "end-of-the-day" make-up. Hehehehe...
