The Blogsherpa Travel Carnival: The First-Time Travels

Hi all!! at last I manage to post the 1st day that I step on the Korea ground!!
It was really amazing, that time i really still cant believed that i in korea!! it was like a dream!!
After went out from the plane, me and others candidates went to take subway to the main arrival exit.
Ya, this is the arrival exit!! 3 language displayed and it is displayed on LCD plasma screen.

Here is the place to take our luggages!! what a huge place.. we almost lost!! hehe!!

Yup!! here are the candidates from Malaysia!! from left, Jacklyn, Alex, Ni Nyoman and LeX (me). Hehe we look great!!
And here are 20 candidates from Asean, included Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. They all look gorgeous !!

Then, we take bus to Daejeon University!! but the driver seat is on the left hand side of the Bus!! Interesting!!

In the bus, the 1 that i holded on my hand is the safety belt. The belt can be expand but in Malaysia dun have safety belt in the bus and if got usually the expandtion of the belt made near the seat but Korea, they made it on the head of the Belt!! hehe !! interesting!!

This was the 1st restaurant that we went for our lunch.

The 1st ever meal in Korea!! a small bowl of stiky rice, big bowl of beef soup, and 2 different kinds of KimChi!! quite nice!!
What is that? that is a a cup that made from recyclable papar.

and it can be open, they usually use this "cup" to drink plain water. Korea really toward to the environmental friendly world!! Another thing that i also know that, they even seperate all the rubbish to the differents dustbin as well as the leave over foods into special dustbin. HOHO!! really amazing!!

do you all see the Plasma TV? it is on the bus and it was live Baseball match!! Korean can watch Live sports with Plasma TV on bus!! The Bus even drove in 100Kmph and the match shown smoothly without lag!! My God!! Fanstatic !!

Wa! thats me!! the right hand side of the picture is my dormitary. Luxury Dormitary!!

Main entrance of the dormitary!!

Others dormitary.

Another dormitary.

The Cafeteria!
My 1st meal ever in Daejeon University with sticky rice, a bit of kimchi, Seaweed, Eags and a bowl of soup!!

This is the place that we have a drink after taken our meal. After the dinner, we take a walk around our dormitary.

We went to 7eleven shop, usually we buy thing from there although it quite expensive compare to downtown store.

We went to playground, and the playground with some special exercise equipments!!

we saw empty field.

and Baseball playing center. The baseball came out from the machine and we use the baseball stick to hit the ball!! Korean love to play there!!
inside view of the center. there are 3 machine . see it?

and the last place we went was the "ManTou" shop or "Bao" shop. Korean Bao look like that. and it is quite different as well.

Well thats all, the 1st day in Korea. quite interesting, right?
Feel free to leave some comments.
Thanks!! ; ) ; )

  9. Hello Lex
    I am Alice from Taiwan
    I just got a scholarship and will study in Daejeon University in September this year
    I only visited Korea once, however, I don't speak Korean
    Is it hard to take a bus from the air port?
    As I know, when we arrive at the destination stop, we have to take a taxi to the school
    Is it very difficult to take a taxi?
    I won't have any company and I will go to Korea by myself
    It is kind of scary to me...
    Anway, I am really happy to find your blog:)
    Hope you can give me some suggestion before I arrive
    Thanks a lot

  14. hey Lex, I should just be frank that ur english is not very good. now I am wondering, how could ur essays that arranged with bad english bring u to the university? what were their reasons to choose u? what did u do in home country if I may ask? cause they must be seeing somtehing very special about u despite of ur essays and ur english.

  15. Hi there,

    Thanks for the honest comment :-)

    The english level of this post is low, i have to admit :-)

    But it didnt mean that my english level was bad. And last time i was not really into travel blog. So i didnt put much concentration on english level :-)

    For now, i am into it. I think i shld polish a little on this post. Anyway, thanks for your suggestion ;-)

    For how to get chosen in this program, you need many combination of qualities but not only with a world class english level. The qualities include personality, leadership, communities contribution,strong recommendations and motivation.

    Anyway, thanks for your reading :-)

    Wish u good luck and achieve your dream ^_^

  16. So much of this reminded me of my first hours in Korea. Great post!
