SHARING: My Korea Haul! (Summer 2018)

Monday, August 20, 2018

I cannot imagine going to Korea without shopping! 💸

They have the best selection of sneakers and beauty products, plus my family is super addicted to their snack called honey almonds.

During my recent trip, I only had 3 days in Seoul. The second day is already fully dedicated to work (Mimi Shop), and the last day is already my flight back to Manila. But bilang #teamavail, I made sure to maximize the few hours I had during our FIRST day kahit na mga 3pm na kami naka check in sa hotels. I just rested a bit, then ravan agad!

I will make a separate post on the places I went to during that few hours of free time in Seoul. Nagkalabasan talaga ang priorities pag tight sa time! Syempre hindi mawawala ang shoppingan!! Hehehe. So here are the stuff I was able to buy. I usually shop in Myeongdong, but since the hotel they booked for us was in Hongdae, I was also able to go around this district to check out their shops. Same same lang din naman halos pero Myeongdong girl talaga ako, hehe!

1) Honey Butter Almonds - Random Grocery in Myeongdong

Ngayon ko lang nakita na may "sachet" style na pala to, siguro mga 6-10 pieces per pack lang sya! Super okay pang dagdag sa pasalubong, although naubos din ng family ko kasi parang mas masarap sya pag ganyang tingi size, hehehe. 

2) Fila Disruptor 2 - ABC Mart in Hongdae

Ubusan to sa Fila Philippines, tapos ang resellers' price nya umaabot ng Php 6000+! But in Korea, asa Php 3500 lang sya, and complete pa ang sizes! I finally have a pair of this year's IT sneakers! Super abusing these since I got them!!

3) Souvenirs from Korean network JTBC

Didn't buy these, but received them as gifts after filming for Mimi Shop! These are coloful notebooks, pens, and post-its. I am a sucker for stationeries so sobrang naappreciate ko sila!

4) Flowers and Transparent Shoulder Bag

More souvenirs from Mimi Shop, I kept these flowers because Winner Yoon himself handed them to us when we entered the shop! Meanwhile, the transparent bag is also a gift from the Mimi Shop cast, they all designed one bag each! I got Tony's artwork and will keep it forever! :) 

5) Korean wide spoon and metal chopsticks set

Another purchase in a random Myeongdong grocery. Ginagamit ko to sa bahay pag may noodles or pansit canton tapos namimiss ko na ang Korea! Hehehe.

6) Emerald Envelope Clutch

Another Mimi Shop gift from their sponsor Moietoii, a cute emerald leather envelope clutch. It feels luxurious!

7) More Mimishop souvenirs!

Of course I had to keep them! ~ Mimi Shop Counselling Card, magnetic name plate with our names in Hangeul which we had to wear during the whole show, and Mimi Shop stickers and photo prints!

8) Mugs!

They also gave us JTBC and Mimi Shop mugs, na buti hindi sila nabasag sa maleta ko! Gave them to my parents.

9) Skincare!

Hoarded my favorite Mediheal masks in Tea Tree, and bought these sheet masks with Song Joong Ki packaging just to try. Sana ok! Got a lot of extras din and selling them on my IG shop @shopanagon!

10) AstaTV Magazines 

Love the new covers!! Got a mix of Kpop and Kdrama covers including Park Seo Joon, Wanna One, BTS, and Lee Jong Suk.

11) Mimi Shop Hand Mirror and Hair Brush

Now in my vanity area. :)

12) For Sale! 

Hoarded these cute socks in Myeongdong, some of them are still available in my IG shop @shopanagon!

13) Pink pen with the Namsan Tower

Pahabol lang na purchase sa airport, nag uubos ng coins hehehe.

14) Something In The Rain Red Umbrella

Also a pahabol gift from JTBC since Something In The Rain is one of their current shows! Tinyaga ko talaga yan maiuwi para Noona Feels. 😂☔
