Once Upon A Lunch Time....

Once upon a lunch time, I headed to the food court of Lotte Department Store in Myeong-dong craving for something different to have.

And while my empty tummy was grumbling as I made my way through the stalls, my eyes got a little bit distracted. 

Just...a little bit.

Stall after stall displayed different kinds of cakes, colored macarons and decorated cupcakes!

They were very enticing and looked very sweet! I figured, I must have one or two to go along with my takeout!

Although I wanted one of each of those treats, I just decided on green tea-flavored and banana-cupcakes.

I figured I can always return on another day, on another lunch time.

                     (Green tea cupcakes in the middle!)

Well, that's just one lunch time. I wonder what other dessert I would stumble upon on some other day.  But in the meantime, I'll just enjoy my pasta takeout now, and my cupcakes later.

  1. The big cupcakes were actually good! Moist and flavorful.

    I stayed away from those macarons and those icing cupcakes with flowerettes. Those are diabetes in fancy colors.

  2. Alphonse, I don't mean to be nosy but what kind of work do you do? And you must speak and understand minimum Korean since you said that that is one of the requirements for a work Visa? How long do you plan on living and working in Korea?

    I am really enjoying your blog, you write very well !

    1. Thank you! I'm in the financial services industry, where I don't really need to write or speak the local language. I only need it when I travel or shop. In some working visas, the knowledge of the language may be required.
