K-popped! in Beijing

Two-thirds of the K-popped! Trio crossed the oceans in the wee hours of the morning today to reunite with the K-poplet.

Dawn breaks while K-popped! was still thousands of feet in
the air. Yes, those are clouds.

If you don't know what the heck we are talking about, suffice to say that the K-popped! Trio (now more "complete" than ever) is taking a brief break from monitoring the Hallyu in Malaysia, but will be zeroing in on all things Korean in Beijing!

Yes dear friends, do bear with us for the next couple of weeks as we bring you Chinese-flavoured K-popped! reports.

First up is a stall selling Korean foodstuff at Carrefour, a French international hypermarket chain. We stumbled upon it while doing a little grocery shopping today.

The Korean foodstall in Carrefour, Beijing

The Korean stall sells an assortment of kimchi and other foods which I don't even know the names of :-P.

The ladies manning the stall donned hanboks and one of them was even preparing bibimbap!

The other lady manning the shop was busy
cooking :-)

Stay tuned for more! But for now, excuse us while we go thaw ourselves by the heater.

Oh wow Beijing sounds like a fun and exciting city. Seeing the Chinese girls in Hanbok reminds me of the Japanese tea garden in San Francisco with Chinese girls in Kimono hehe so very cute ^_^
Have fun and make sure to keep us up to date!

You have to check out Wudaokou & Wang Jing to find the 'Little Korea' in Beijing. There are lots of Korean restos run by Koreans & frequented by Koreans there. A few Korean celebrities were spotted there on & off.

blinkable, we went to Beijing because our beloved Rooster is there :-).

Anyway, according to Mercer Human Resource Consulting, Seoul is the 3rd most expensive city in the world. Lots of saving up to do and what not.

A rombongan K-popped! (K-popped! excursion) to Korea? Ha ha ha that would be interesting.
