So S(e)oul Inspiring

We are home. Arrived late last night. Flight was fine (except for the atrocious English and at times lackadaisical service quality; time and time again these are my only complaints about AA), in fact we arrived earlier than schedule. These AA pilots - me thinks they all have license to speed once they are up in the skies.

And yesss....I am back at work too. Back to reality back to the grill. But I'm not complaining. The break was good and getting back into the groove makes me feel even better.

Like my previous trips, both Abe & I took loads of pictures. And when am I ever gonna put them up? Oh goshhh....I don't know. Perhaps if I posted a few at a time, I'll finish doing so some day, ya tak?

So Seoul....what's soul inspiring about this metropolis with over 10 million inhabitants?

During this short visit, I would say FOOD is top on the list. Eating establishments - there are many, many, many which can be found in Seoul;  ranging from street vendors and hole-in-the-wall shikdangs (small restaurants) to high-priced, formal restaurants will full-course meals. In between there are many types of medium-sized places offering a wide range of food types, including traditional Korean food, fast food, Western and other non-Korean dishes.

All along the streets in Seoul, this is a common sight.

Street food in abundance; but most of them serve Non Halal dishes

Here...can larrr makan.....

Mixed...western and local dishes

Pun...tok sah nak berangan nak gi indulge kat sini...:(
