Korea and Fried Chicken

This is one of those things that just comes out of left field.  Fried Chicken...in Korea?  Yes.  And it is tastey.

I stopped off at this place on teh way home from shopping and picked up some great fried chicken for dinner for the family.  It appears to be run by a mom and pop.

Since we started eating the local stuff we haven't set foot in KFC which is here also.


Filming in Seoul

We were all excited when we heard some filming for Winter Soldier was going to be done here (I think that's the movie).  But obviously it wouldn't be at any time near us at all.

But still, snippets of filming and modeling sessions popup in and around the Itaewon area.  These guys were trying out some really cool camera stuff.  I don't know what it's called, but the effect is the extreme panning affect you see that pans a person and then quickly zooms in on the person at the same time.  

The set-up was with one persono operating the camera on the subject.  Then two people, each sporting their own device, would control the tilt and zoom.  You can see it all in the video.

I've found heaven

I take the 405 bus every morning to work and pass several Paris Baguette stores.  And only ONE stood out as being stocked "early".  The PG is located feet from the 405 City Hall Bus stop.  It's 7:36am and I just got finished eating one of the freshest croissants I've ever had in my life.  It was still warm.

I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

COEX Aquarium

We had a great time at the COEX Aquarium.   It was good to see my daughter get excited about something.  The photos below are from one of the more bizarre looking fish.  These are called the Garden Eels.  

Just weird.
