My contribution to the installation. #art #installation #seoul Really want to explore this palace one of these days. Summer is just so hot and humid. And I know this probably has a big garden or courtyard. Maybe in autumn? #palace #seoul Had food and drinks somewhere along this streets with other fellows and artist residents of MMCA. It was fun mixing things up a bit. Should've taken a snapshot with them, but I feel like a bunch of business cards that I really should organize. #art #life #seoul Black rice bread. Tastes like puto back in the Philippines. #breakfast #seoul Before I head back, I found another stall for the strawberry mochi. And of course I bought another piece and took it home. I did enjoy Myeong Dong, despite the touristy atmosphere. The food carts are just starting to open by the time I left. Maybe I'll be back. #food #shopping #seoul Also tried the pomegranate juice. Have to admit, not as flavorful as the ones in Thailand and Vietnam, quite expensive too at 5000 won per small pack. #food #seoul
