Samsung GSAT Test

As a fun little experience and because I need a job/source of income anyways, I decided to take the Global Samsung Aptitude Test (GSAT) for new business/marketing candidates. This is the 2nd stage of their 4 step employment process, the first submitting your materials including resume and work experience, and the other two being interviews with different executives and HR.

Cheap Eats in Seoul: Jaws Tteokbokki (죠스 떡볶이)

I just came across this really awesome tteokbokki (떡볶이)chain, Jaws Tteokbokki, serving by far some of the best tteokbokki I’ve had from a chain(so far). I’ve been to a few chain restaurants including Pomato, only to be disappointed in their limp, watery tteokbokki. Luckily, I finally found this place!

Cheap Eats in Seoul: Pomato

Living on a tight budget (for now), finding cheap eats is a necessity for me. Finding affordable restaurants in Seoul is not terribly hard, and luckily I found this chain that has become a good staple for cheap eats. The restaurants are clean with nice furniture and the food is pretty decent with affordable prices. The best part is it is open 24 hours a day! Continue reading “Cheap Eats in Seoul: Pomato”

Seoul Photos: Namsan (남산)

Namsan (남산) is probably one of the most famous mountains in Seoul, in big part due to having the highest observation tower known as N. Seoul Tower (as well as Namsan Tower, Seoul Tower, YTN Tower). It’s located in the middle of Seoul, so the view from N. Seoul Tower is pretty nice. It’s extremely couple-oriented and you will pretty much run into only couples and tourist during your visit.

Seoul International Fireworks Festival (서울세계꽃축제)

I went to the Seoul International Fireworks Festival yesterday. I went there 4 years ago with a bunch of friends and had a lot of fun, so this time I decided to go there and take some pictures. As expected, the turnout was insane and just heading out of the station felt like an evacuation after a North Korean attack. Continue reading “Seoul International Fireworks Festival (서울세계꽃축제)”

Best Way to Exchange US Dollars to Korean Won

This was one of the biggest questions I had before going to South Korea, despite having gone there already. Since I would be footing the bill for this journey, I wanted to make the most of my (US) dollars and minimize fees. It wasn’t very apparent what the best method was after searching the internet, but I wanted to be prudent with my money. Continue reading “Best Way to Exchange US Dollars to Korean Won”

Cheonggyecheon Plaza (청계천 플라자 )

Cheongyecheon is a beautiful creek that was restored after being “buried” under a concrete highway for approximately 30 years or so. It was restored in 2005 and is a great example of beautiful city design. You can take a nice leisurely stroll along this creek which is especially pleasant during a summer night.
