LEAVING TO ALPENSIA, PYEONGCHANG FOR SKIING. SOUTH KOREA EPISODE 4



With heavy heart we left Jeju Island for Holiday Inn ski Resort in Pyeongchang, South Korea via a 1.1 hour flight. There are so much more to see and experience in Jeju Island but our adventure were limited by the winter (I heard there's a beautiful beach and another mountain that we should hike). The bus from the airport to the Alpensia Ski Resort in Pyeongchang was a 3 hours drive and we had a fantastic time singing out-of-tune karoeke'ing and dancing in the bus. Unfortunately, I'm not able to upload those karoeke moments without risking being flag by Youtube for licensing requirement (sorry Wawa, Azhar & Shamsul). We were also entertained by Azhar Sulaiman in-bus dangdut sessions. Skiing for the first time was a completely different world but what was out of the world moment was the breathtaking view of the mountain. God knows how much I felt at peace and love that beautiful scenery (one of the reason I once picked up mountain climbing as a hobby). We shall be back skiing or at least for the mountain scenic peace. Next video is on the amazing city of Seoul. "Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory" ~ Theodor Seuss Geiser. I am one of those sentimental folks whom love to cherish every moment and journey in life. In a few years, its good to walk down memory lane and re-live + cherish all these moments. I must have got it from my dad whom had video recorded all our childhood on a huge camcorder that uses 'film' in the 70s. Video recording then was not that easy and it would take quite an effort to bring around a huge camcorder (one day, I may convert those videos into a vlog). Anny and Aarya had their first encounter with Snow. This reminded me of those university days (almost 3 decades ago) in Buckingham, England when it snows. There was another Malaysian (Vincent, a law student~ wonder what happen to him; we've lost contact since graduation) in our hostel and I was shocked when he screamed in the wee hour of the morning knocking on hostel room door, 'MIng Ming Ming.. snow snow snow' in his Sabahan accent. Needless to say, a bunch of us (Vincent, Joey, the late Nazrin etc went out and rolled in the snow hahaaa like how jakun Mat Salleh is, sunbathing in hot Malaysia. (Anny wasnt so jakun, maybe trying to look cool ahaks). Needless to say, if you have not been to the Alpensia, Pyeongchang in South Korea, please have them in your list of places to visit. Even if you dont like the skiing, go there for the beautiful scenic view. Simply breaktaking! Mesmerising. Please subscribed, there will be new videos every Tuesday (maybe more) everyweek.
