Korea Journey: From Sweden to South Korea

South Korea 2014
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Fillet of Chicken with sauted leaf spinach. The pasta was as hard as a plastic gum, however, the spinach and chicken was good! I did not get any use of the chili paste (white tube) we got.
 
Breakfast: scrambled eggs. The breakfast was not very satisfying at all. I had to force myself to eat it. 
 
About to arrive in the South Korean territory.

Sephora in Gothenburg

Daily
The store opened at 10 AM and they offered people who purchase over 500SEK will receive a goodiebag on the opening day. The goodiebag will be handed out while the stocks last. I arrived at around 9:50 AM and the first thing I saw was an almost 100-500 metres long queue. Regardless the length of the queue, there were a lot of people queuing. I was able to enter the store at 11 AM after approximately over 100 customers exited with a goodiebag per person. My main concern was, of course, the goodiebag. I was mainly at Sephora early for the goodiebag. But luckily, I got my hands on a goodiebag. My hypthesis was they had a lot of goodiebags, that'll probably be sufficient for almost every Sephora customers that day.
 
 
Sephora Lingzhi mask, Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara (travel size), Sephora Waterproof Eye makeup remover (travel size), Sephora nail polish, Sephora lip balm, NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Punjab (sample size).
 
I have not calculated the value of the goodiebag. Was the goodiebag satisfying? Yes, in some way.
 
You will probably wonder what brands Sephora provides: Too Faced, NARS, Benefit, Sephora, YSL, Dior, Guerlain, Ole Henriksen, Caudalie, etc.
These are the brands I rememberred clearly. And no, they did not have Urban Decay. I am not a big fan of Urban Decay yet, but I wished they had Hourglass, Becca and Kat Von D. 
I look forward to gain more experiences as a customer at Sephora and what they will offer in the near future!

Haikyuu!" Season One

Anime/Manga, Otaku Life

"Haikyuu!" is an anime about high school volleyball club that fights for an invitation to the national championship. Just like most of the sports, being a strong as a team will not only bring you victory, but also fulfilling the team's goal. However, there will always be a team that is stronger than your team and it might not bring what you wished or hoped. The only way to surpass the team that defeated you, is to work harder and evolve. 
"Haikyuu!" focuses mostly on Hinata, Shouyou and Kageyama, Tobio. They have the opposite personalities and have had different experiences from junior high school. As the days pass, the viewers get to see how they will work together as a team, with the team, and evolve as individuals. 
 
I watched the first episode of "Haikyuu!" last year and I stop watching it for no peculiar reason. I picked up the anime again and rewatched it because I got to watch it with someone. Watching with someone forces me to continue the entire series and it worked. 
Lately, I have been into anime about sports. Personally, I am not someone who sports, nor do I watch sports matches, e.g. football, tennis, the Olympic Games. I guess the reason being for liking specifically anime about sports is because I prefer anime. Anime is much more fun to watch, in my opinion. 
What I like about "Haikyuu!" is that it has a very good pace. The pace is how every anime should be. I do notice some fillers that appears hither and thither, but it is passable. And yes, the anime is based on manga, like most of the anime do. To make me like an anime, I have to like 90% of the characters. I like every single character from "Haikyuu!" and surprisingly, there isn't a character I dislike yet. All the characters have their own personalities and charms, and they are so different. And I happen to fall instantly in love with main characters that have a silly personality. Sigh, I am sometimes hopepless when I talk about anime. 
 
Lastly, I'll continue to watch the second season, which will be released on fall. I rated 9/10 on "Haikyuu!"
Give it a try (minimum 3-4 episodes), and you might like it, or not.
