I’m currently in Germany looking for trouble (no actually im traveling) and for art shit. I’ve seen stickers, amazing magazine layouts, graffitis and random doodle in the streets. I haven’t uploaded my pictures yet but I’m quite envious of how urban art is growing in their cities. This week I travelled to Frankfurt, Koln, Heidelburg and now in Strasbourg. Wish me luck that I see more cool shit.
I’m back again to Korea for a short business trip with LG Philippines! It’s pretty awesome to go back in Seoul since it’s my 2nd home and what’s more special is this place, Sinsa-dong Garosu-gil! It’s part of Gangnam district and a few minutes away from Myeondong. The small street is packed of concept cafes, fashion boutiques, vintage stores and some small clubs. I love every part of the street because every building is unique and carefully designed by art lovers and coffee addicts. Furthermore, Garosugil is named as the mini Europe of Seoul, so if you’re an art & coffee lover, you’ll definitely love this place!
I love everything graffiti and urban so I take time to shoot small stickers and graffiti signs in every country I go to, here’s one that I found in the street.
I’m a nerd, so I definitely have the specs but here’s my favorite glasses store in Korea, ALO Eyewear. Their designs are really cute and urban-like, my style of course. Plus their price ranges from 3,000 to 5,000 PHP so pretty cheap compared with the usual Ray Bans.
The above picture shows a unique building shaped out of a bag and yes they sell BAGS. Small stores like this are common in Garosugil and I really like this building because it sells the point. Literally. Hahaha anyways they sell customized bags and other leatherwear.
And! Your visit won’t be complete without drinking some coffee in one of Garosugil cafes. We picked TWOSOME COFFEE for their delicious cappuccino and cozy place. So I really recommend this place for your next Korea visit!
Hello Korea…again! I never get tired with this beautiful city and when Samsung gave me the opportunity to go back, I didn’t hesitate! So our trip involved a lot of factory tour and product presentations from Samsung. We stayed in the beautiful JW Marriot Hotel in Seoul and some of the highlights of our trip was a tour in Samsung D Light showroom, Samsung factory and some quick shopping.
Here’s my favorite part of the showroom! The interactive lounge where you can dance like a kpop star thanks to Samsung technology! I was too shy to try it out but some japanese gals wanted to shine out!
I’m a retail design addict and thanks to my work, I get to see the small details of a store. This picture above is my favorite way to highlight a product!
I’ve come across a cool store in Seoul named, GEEK SHOP. They serve coffee and some high end clothing brands that you only see in HYPEBEAST.COM. The interior is really nice but they won’t allow pictures. SAD. So anyways, here are some of the snippets of my short business trip in Seoul, Korea ♥
