Yongpyong Ski Resort

Selamat Hari Raya for my Muslim readers!!!

I'm enjoying my holiday with my hubby at home. So you get to read this post! Haha!

That day saw some skiing photos taken in Australia in the newspaper and made me recalled my skiing experience in Korea back to January.

Here's the photos!

We stayed one night at Dragon Valley Hotel. The location was superb as it was right on the slopes.

Hotel lobby


We walked over to Peak Island, an indoor water and spa theme park. The theme park was very large, and have many pools for kids and adults. There are also outdoor hot jacuzzi pools where you dip in waters 33-41 degree celcius out in the open air admiring the blue sky and snow scene.

Too bad that I forgot to bring my swimsuit and we were in a rush for ski, so we just visited the different floors and areas to explore this place.


How good if we could enjoy our drinks here. But I couldn't stay for too long because I didn't wear my earmuff and started to feel the pain on my ears. The weather was totally unbearable without earmuff.

Love the thick snow!!!


Measured my foot to get the right shoe size

Putting on the heaviest ski boots

Ready to go!!!

Yes. We were skiing at night. Blamed the stupid and indecisive tour guide that had bad planning skill. He made me suffering under the freezing weather and most importantly, all photos taken were in poor quality due to low light condition!

I wrapped myself like a dumpling this time. You know why? The temperature was -12 degree celsius


See, I didn't bluff right? It was really a freezing cold night. I needed the scarf to cover my nose and mouth to avoid breathing in too much cold air.


Ski lifts

Do you think skiing is fun?

For me, it was HORRIBLE. Those clunky ski boots were hard enough to walk in without the skis before we got out there. Then I put the skis on, and it's hard to just move my steps, even if the land is just barely sloped. After a short briefing provided by our tour guide, we were on our own to practise and explore the ski fun.

I was trying hard to DRAG myself to a barely sloped area together with my hubby. Then when I turned around, the my skis automatically slide and I wasn't know how to stop it until I crashed an unlucky skier, I SCREAMED and then FELL DOWN! I wanna dig a hole and hide inside. LOL.

My hubby quickly came over to help me but without any braking experience, he FELL DOWN too! Two stupid dumplings sat on the snow and slowly got up but failed. Eventually we had to take our skis off, got up, and put them back on. It was apparently hilarious though.

So after this small accident, I found skiing was kind of scary. We did make few attempts to try to ski properly but I didn't have the courage to go to the higher slope. At the end, due to the unbearable weather and the ache the ski boots caused on my foot, I GAVE UP.

Although I didn't make it, it indeed turned out to be a life enriching experience!

Found an igloo when we were on the way back to hotel


Beautiful lightings

Although it was already 11pm, but I was so reluctant to go back to my room before my battery exhausted.

Kept throwing snow

Best photo of the day

Lying on the thick snow to take some memorable shots. Oh yeah, it was -12°C that night. Crazy me!


Buried my boots with the thick snow. Haha.....



Breakfast time! This was the filming place of Winter Sonata. So you can see the poster everywhere

Great variety of breakfast


Nothing better than having a bowl of hot porridge in this cold morning

So romantic

Last minute photo time! We gotta depart from the hotel before 9am so that we could have more time at Everland Themepark.

And when we walked over to the ski area, the thermometer showed -18°C.


The apartment here has a charming European feel. Please ignore my facial expression because my face was almost numb.


Jumping high! Showing my happiness and also trying to make my body warm. Really wish I could stay here for one more day.

When my tourmate saw me posing on the snow, they were really shocked. This was my sacrifice for you all! Love me more please!

Okay, I gotta admit that this was a little bit too cruel to my hubby to take photos for me in this freezing cold morning as he gotta take out the glove to press the camera button all the while.

Thanks hubby :)

Summer Love

Straw Fedora, my all-time favourite. It is lightweight, breathable, and looks great!

White lace dress. It is so elegant and outstanding for both casual and formal occasions.

Floral print one piece with Kago bag.

Red polka dot dress. Best matched with pearl hairband for a feminine feel.

Black hole leggings paired with bright blue tunic. Accessories play a very important role to add elements to the punk look.

I look so different right?

Okay. That's all for now. If you want more fashion photos, support me by CLICKING "LIKE" on my Facebook ok?
