I know many our readers are new mommies (some not so new) and have young children. How many times have you cracked your head trying to figure out how to keep your kids busy while you work on something? Are you tired of searching the Internet or going to many music stores just to find music that your kids like? Well, I recently came to know about an amazing offer by Amazon MP3 that will blow your socks out. On Easter Sunday (April 4, 2010), Amazon MP3 will offer an "MP3 Daily Deal" on the digital album Ultimate Countdown Kids Collection: 200 Sing-A-Long Favorites for only $3.99. That's right, you heard me right. Only $3.99 for 200 songs! This digital album normally sells for $11.99, but it's going for $3.99 on Easter Sunday. This as an amazing collection of children's favorites that is perfect for sing a long fun. Among some of the all time favorites available in this album are John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt, Pop Goes The Weasel, She'll Be Coming 'Round The Mountain, The Itsy-Bitsy Spider and many more! Some of these songs also comes in karaoke version. How cool is that? If you don't have kids, you should also not miss out on this offer. Pick up an album for your nieces, nephews or friend's kids. It's really an offer not to be missed. Only $3.99 for 200 songs! So, remember to head over to Amazon MP3 to get your copy come Easter Sunday. I'm sure your kids will thank you for that!
Kevin ordered the Homestyle Seafood Noodle Soup (KRW 8000, approx US$7). His noodle came with three sides, some kimchi, spinach and something else. Since he didn't like any of the sides, I ate his spinach and kimchi too! :D His noodles was pretty good, actually. The broth was really sweet, must be due to the crabs and seafood in the stock. There were quite a generous helping of seafood (crabs, shrimp, squid, fish..etc) in his soup too. I would say that it was way better than my noodles. After our meal, we had about half an hour or so before boarding. Perfect timing! With a full tummy, we were all ready for our final leg of journey back home!

Look at the size of the pan. That was a three person portion. Even after sharing, we still couldn't finish all the food. Let me say it once again. It was really really yummy! One of the best bulgogi I have ever eaten before. After lunch, we all piled into the little bus again and headed back to the airport. It was a fun ride back, with our tour guide teaching us Korean phrases, giving us Korean candy to munch on and some Korean trivia. We even received a bottle of hand lotion each, compliments of the Korean Tourism Board! After arriving at the airport, we still had quite a number of hours to kill before our flight back to Malaysia. Stay tuned to see what we did!

The rain began to come down hard the moment we got on our tour bus. Originally, our next stop would be Cheonggye Plaza, to see the man made stream. However, due to the heavy rain, everybody agreed to give it a miss when our tour guide asked us if we still wanted to go down and walk around. We just took some pictures of it from our bus. With that, we are off to our next stop. The traditional Korean lunch!

Overall, it was an awesome meal. With really good food, great ambiance and super friendly servers, it was definitely an anniversary celebration to remember. Oh and by the way, our drinks were on the house! I don't know why, maybe it was an anniversary gift or maybe they were just being nice. Either ways, thanks guys! :D

Not too long ago, I can across an article written by Eric Hammer on Examiner.com about how it's possible to get cheap eyeglasses from Zenni Optical. To begin with, the good folks at Zenni Optical believes that prescription eyeglasses are a health item necessity for most wearers, and to that end, they take considerable pride in being able to bring to all a very high quality product of great durability, safety and comfort at truly reasonable and affordable prices.
How do they sell eyeglasses at such a low cost, you might ask? Well, by using the latest modern materials, manufacturing and marketing systems, they bring their products direct from their factories to the customer. This means, there are no middlemen, no retail overheads and practically no advertising budget. By doing so, they are able to keep all sorts of unnecessary cost down and sell you your eyeglasses at minimal price. Also, they do not pay for or sell expensive brand names but only their own manufactured brand, ZENNI. Don't be fooled by the brand. Just because it's not branded doesn't mean that it is not stylish. The people at Zenni Optical strive to make each and every pair of Zenni eyeglass a fashionable and stylish product.
So, what's the damage? The bill came up to KRW 14,100. I can't remember what is the exact breakdown of each item but KRW 14,100 is approximately US$12.50. I am not sure if the pricing is the same for all KFC outlets or this particular one is more expensive because it's located in the airport. I guess $12.50 is not too bad, it's about the same (maybe even a little less) as what we pay for a two person meal back in the States. Stay tuned for more about our transit tour in my next post!
Ah, it's here again! One of my top 10 favorite holidays! Bring out my green shirt, bring out the green beer and let's get this party started! What will you be doing today? Head out to the parade? Drink some Guinness? Eat some Corn Beef and Cabbage? Whatever your plans are, have fun and be safe! With that said...
