Birthday + Bboy BattleoftheYear Korea + Halloween

Spent the weekend at Seoul to catch the bboy battle of the year 2010 korea elimination. And since korea is kinda the country of breakdancing, its enough to say it was AWESOME.

Headed to Hongdae after to check out the halloween scene.
Was pretty cool, with quite afew people dressing up. And a crazy silent party where we got sennheiser wireless headphones, and partied to a DJ and Emcee which only we could hear. Haha. Trouped around the area, and pretty much stunned everyone else. Haha. It was probably quite hilarious to see a whole big group of people jumping and dancing around in silence. And shouting in unison too.

Went with a group of 'not really party' kinda people, so while Rusty and me were having fun at the silent party, they sat at Baskin Robbins and chilled. So we kinda felt guilty and returned the headsets soon, and walked around, and spent the night chilling at a cafe, people watching, and then a restaurant. Not exactly fun, but oh wells, the BOTY, people watching and silent party kinda made it a rather unique bday celebration already.

Pictures below, and i did up a rough trailer using iMovie '11. Basically threw in the vids, and see what came out. Wasn't good, but still watchable. Haha.

Train to Seoul 10,500won. Rather cheap.

The arts theatre which we saw as we walked around searching for the Bboy place.

The walls had bricks with names, cool.

One of the stairs we climbed up in search of the elusive competition venue.

And a rather cool starbucks building.

One of the theatres had a slide to exit! How cool is that.

Met gandalf the giant statue again.

Chilled at starbucks for like an hour, waiting for lunch.

And read the graffiti scribbled on the wall. DBSK? haha.
the Emcee was wheelchair bound. I think its rather cool, to be disabled, yet to still be able to find a niche in which one is good at.

Here's the DJ.

Saw this sign at the subway, and wondered since when did the subway have guys carriages.

Turned out it was an advert for the new Hyundai Accent.

Forgot to bring my Seoul 'ezlink' card, and ended up buying one trip tickets.

One of the many shops in Hongdae.

Some random Rappers.

Dinner at a bbq place, whats new?

Rather big cute dog at a candy floss store. I think it probably made quite alot of business for its owner already.

Some arty farty building with expensive stuff.

Fierce dog.

Got a corn dog at a roadside stall.

This is the sticker for the silent disco.

Classic, and easy.
