Vain-glorious S(e)oul

Us being silly as usual and this time even David joined in the fun! You know what they say "If you can't beat them, join them!" And it works!

The tour guide was being nice and doing his job by telling us the history of Korea while we were inside the National Folk Museum of Korea. After 10-15 mins, Angie and me got slightly bored with the history and stuff.

Thus we decided to wander to the next showcase instead, and goodness knows why; Angie decided to play tour guide to me by explaining the history base on the visual and the caption displayed and some other weird info she concocted. And I ( the silly MOI!) follow her act and start "asking valid historical" question on Korea and of cause she explained it beautifully even though there's no fact and she was cooking it up. We thought it was kinda funny and cute. So we decided to continue to the next showcase.....

... by now, few other caucasian tourist followed US!!! (ie Angie & I) as we continue our RUBBISH history telling! Oh no! They start asking her question (taking after my lead), thinking she was the museum tour guide. HAHHAHAHAHH...... half way thru we felt guilty and told them that we were tourist as well, we were just fooling around. They actually commented we were pretty good! HAHAHAHHA... THANK YOU!

Spot who is human and who is not?

A decent pic of me doing the standard "peace" sign, hemm... ever wonder why everyone do that when taking a pic. Perhaps I should google this, hemm...

Err.... I have it all in black&white (and colours too), David hates Anna and kicking her has always been in his mind. Blackmail time!!! Hahaha.... (And I did nothing to help poor Anna, OPS!)

This is what I meant by vain-glorious or in Malay language we call it PERASAN! Yo-yo-on! Konon konon! Drama! Hahhahah.... My friends who see this pic also said > BEI-TAHAN

It's part of the attraction, Yup! Even World Cup Stadium is part of the sightseeing site.

We went to this place where I forgot the name, Biqque help!!!

What is a trip to Seoul within visiting the famous Lotte World right?

But instead we got "held up" in Korea. Hahhahah...

Great fun.
I knew what I was going to write here and Bananaz comments on the same idea !!
Anyhow, a folk museum has to be interesting and exciting otherwise the tourist ends up like an exhibit statue.... I'm sure I would have acted like Angie too .... some tourists will believe anything ha ha. Now where's my wet sponges for the last photo.
