Korea : Day 3 National Museum of Korea and the Folk Village


This time around, hubby finally had a chance to join a tour. And this one called Cultural Tour =D

It was our last day in Incheon (before headed to Seoul) , the cultural tour was meant to be in Seoul and it took us almost 2 hours by bus.. So it was like Incheon - Seoul - Incheon..

So excuse my complaints : dah la luggage hilang, itinerary pun pelik2 =

Anyway,

Welcome to the National Museum of Korea!

besar tak besar la kan

To design this building, the Korean government held an international competition open to architects around the world to submit a proposal for the new building. There were over 854 entries from 59 countries. The winning design was inspired by the idea of a traditional Korean fortress - wiki

Memang besar dan mengujakan, but sayangnya we didn't have much time to cover all areas =(

The Stele for Buddhist Preceptor Wollang - records the life of Buddhist preceptor named Wollang (816 - 883)

Buddhist stone ..stone isn't? or carve? my bad, I'm not sure the appropriate word. Or maybe I'm thinking of stupas, sculpture? why do I care so much?

Do you notice that every Buddhist stone sculptures are different? lain tau muka diorang.. round eyes, sepet eyes..heh, I just noticed!

the golden crown, must cause a potential headache

very cute toothbrush holder!

ok bye bye museum

ahn nyeong ha se yo!

We continued to the Namsan Hanok village, reproduction of a Korean Folk Village. The village is composed of a traditional Korean garden and five traditional Korean houses from the Choson Dynasty.


There is also a cultural crafts shop

at a corner


she was chasing her sister / friend, tapi sempat lagi bagi special pose

Wrapped up the day with dinner at the Evergreen, the Indian cuisine.. sambil tengok konsert MJ lagi =D

oh ya, in case you are wondering ..
