its me in font of the bibimbap festival booth

Do you know bibimbap? Bibimbap (비빔밥, Korean pronunciation: [pibimpap]) is a signature Korean dish. The word literally means “mixed rice”. Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. It can be served either cold or hot. In Korea, Jeonju, Jinju, and Tongyeong are especially famous for their versions of bibimbap. It is listed at number 40 on World’s 50 most delicious foods readers’ poll compiled by CNN Go in 2011.

This F1 Tour also follow by other 28 Foreigner who was also as lucky as i am to join this amazing time. We depart from KTO at 8am on 12 october 2012. I finally meet for the first time my team mate jessica, we are on the Super-Q team. Jessica is Chinesse-korean who had been in Korea quite long, her family also live in korea. She is nice and kind, she also look so pretty just like one of the girls grups. 🙂

Its me and Jessica, Super Q, in the Yongnam F1 Korean Grandprix Circuit

We was stop over for lunch near to gongju, and than we finally arrive in Mokpo around 1.30Pm as schedule. I am so excited for this trip since i am huge fans of F1, i really hope i could see hamilton win in this 2012 F1 Korean Grandprix. So watching prelimenary is also important for me since in this prelimenary could determine the start on final. Once again i hope hamilton would be in the top 3.

hamilton go and do your best!

As i predict hamilton could be one of the top 3, while 2nd and 1st are Vettel and webber from the Renault team. After we watch the prelimenary we went to the Mokpo city for sightseeing and also see cool places around mokpo, you could read more detail in this LINK. After that we went for dinner and the dinner was so amazing and delicious. one of the best food i ever eat! its was seafood restaurant located in mokpo city.

the delicious foods

after the dinner we went for shopping in lotte mart and then went to our hanok stay, you could read more detail in this LINK.

The second day of our F1 Tour was watching the final. Before in the morning we went to sightseeing in the hanok stay area, you could read in this LINK. and in the afternoon we have lunch and than went for  final and this final we watch almost 55 lap, and i am so amaze, since the racer really do their best to be the winner on this final.

we enjoy lunch before watch final

I could see how hamilton try his best to get 1st and 2nd. The amazing was alonso who finally made it to be top 5. As many people predict VETTEL won the First place at this korean grandprix. Maybe the amazing part is renault team success won as 1st and 2nd. I bet renault team had big party after this racer!

the racer try their best to be the winner

I could say this is one of amazing experience for me, since i meet great friends and also i meet amazing people plus the KTO arrange very nice trip. I am really suggest you to come and watch this KOREAN F1 GRANDPRIX in the near future, and i hope my experience could be your reference to manage your F1 tour. 🙂 Once again i would like to say thank you to KTO for this amazing experience.

Must visit Tourist Attraction if you visit Mokpo and Yongnam!

Its me in front of DR.WANG SITE

Our trip for the F1 Tour was two days 12-13 november 2012, therefore during this trip beside we went to see the F1 Korean grandprix it self we also visit several cool places.

on the first day after watch the preliminary grandprix, we went to the Yongnam Keum-ho breakwater (영암 금호 방조제), this place is separated the sea water and the river in the yongnam area. its like a dam, i guess. however after we arrive at that place it was under-constructions so we couldn’t go inside the dam. I guess this place will be amazing, but if you want to visit this place i guess it will be awesome if you ask whether its still under-constructions or not.

Mokpo SQUARE, the world dance festival was held

The second we visit Mokpo Square, here there was a “world dance festival” when we arrive, we saw performance from Korea, Spain and France. It was amazing performance with cool costume. I also learn some steps of france dance. Its totally unbelievable experience. I saw many local people curious and interest about this performance, they were so excited claps their hands follow the musics.

After that we went to have dinner, it was cool dinner, We love it so much, I geuss you could read it here in this LINK.

its me with other K-performance supporter in the Dr.Wang site

The second day we went to Dr.Wang site near to our hanok, Since we dont have much time, we could not enjoy whole museum things, but i take a lot of good picture here with cool friends.  The best part is i love the big field in this Dr. Wang site. I geuss it will be cool to know the detail about this place, if we have a tour guide who explain in detail about this place. However this place is awesome place for taking good pictures.Thats some of other places that i visited during our F1 Tour.

PSY GANGNAM STYLE concert

Oya since i did not join the KTO bus to go back to seoul after the F1 Final, Instead of it i went to the Gangnam PSY Concert with other K-Performance supporter, There we have a blash. I feel the excitement of PSY GANGNAM STYLE. its only one hour but it so FUN! We jump and dance gangnam style. Even i dont know the song but i just like singing LALALALA, and dance for almost 1hours.

we have fun time in the Gangnam Style concert

Lastly i geuss, if you visit F1 next year, you have to also come to the Free concert since the organizer surely invite awesome singer like this year they invited PSY to entertain us. Thank you KTO for this amazing two days trip. Its so unforgettable memory! 🙂

I Geuss I am really enjoy the time with Hangyo most of the time. The interesting part of our relationship was, She could not speak English and I could could not speak korean. Most of my friends confuse how to of us be able to communicate each others. We often open “google translate” from our smart phone to translate our language barriers. The best part of my relationship with Hangyo is we could be bestfriends. She always there for me! In good time and bad time this recent year!

The touching part was yesterday, se suddenly call me and ask “Ai where are you?” I was in the bus to KAIST from Sollbridge. We finally meet in KAIST and I was so surprised since she bring box of instants rice,chicken karee instants and so many fish soup instants. She said to me “Ai don’t eat ramyon anymore,this is a food for you during your busiest time” oh my god, I am so speachless. She was remember when I was sleep for whole day at weekend and often eat ramyon due to In my dorm is not allow to Cooked.

 She so care to my health!i was so speachless since she so kind to me and always care to me! 🙂 thank you Hangyo for your kindness and warm hearted! You are the best korean bestfriends I ever meet! 🙂

Korea~siapa yang tidak mau datang ke korea sekarang ini? semua ingin ke KOREA! Demam KOREA di penjuru dunia! Hal ini tidak lepas dari “hallyu wave” dari K-POP,K-DRAMA dan lain sebagainya. Agaknya “ketampanan dan kecantikan” para artis korea cukup membuat terkesima semua mata! 🙂

Tak segan-segan banyak orang yang rela membeli tiket promosi salah satu maskapai yang sedang gencar2nya di asia satu tahun sebelumnya, dengan “bertaruh”kemungkinan visa ditolak demi mendapatkan “tiket murah” ke korea. Situs search engine kerap dikunjungi mulai untuk mendapatkan tips dan trik mendapatkan visa ke korea, tempat yang direkomendasikan dikunjungi sampai dengan tempat tinggal murah selama di korea.
