On Dec 11, I went with my Korean colleague to a place which I had never heard of, i.e. Mokpo (aka Mokpo-si). To make money more well spent, we took a normal train that depart @ 07.05 am instead of KTX (much faster but double the price) since we were not in the rush. Strangely, the train was delayed for 30 minutes which rarely happened according per my colleague.
Half an hour later we board the train and began our travel journey to the south part of Korea as the train moved out from Yongsan station. By the time we reached the destination it was already half past twelve in the afternoon. Quickly, we went to the Tourist information counter to grab a map of Mokpo before we headed for lunch to please our hungry stomach..
After lunch, we began our walking to explore Mokpo city. We walked towards Yudal mountain to catch the picturesque of the city.
Accordingly to my travel companion, we should not miss the “Gatbawi” (갓바위) , a pair of rocks in Mokpo-shi, Jeollanam-do which form a small peninsula a bit east of the main part of Mokpo. The two rocks are called Jeongbawi and Satgatbawi. It was considered to be one of Mokpo’s “Eight Scenic Spots.” The name was also used for the Gatbawi Cultural Street in Mokpo, on which was located the Korean National Maritime Museum and the Moko Natural History Museum. We also went to the fish market place where you saw owners both opposite sides calling you to drop by their store to buy their fresh seafood.
Since this place was known for seafood place, I was told to try the “live octopus that sprinkle with lots of sesame oil”. The restaurant owner served the dish with live octopus along with a pair of scissor for us to use. It was cut into pieces and the poor octopus was still moving vigorously. It looked exactly what you saw them on TV. It took me awhile to conquer my fear before I decided to try a tiny piece of the octopus. I used the chopsticks to pick up the creature and very quickly put inside my mouth and chewed as fast as I could. What is the taste like? Hmmm……..sashimi….and luckily it was very fresh so I didn’t puke.
The next day we walked to the bus-interchange in Mokpo to catch morning bus to Haenam. Typically, like Mokpo city you cannot find any foreign tourist like me. I managed to catch the sunrise the next morning and it was really beautiful.
Wando was our last stop of our entire trip. Clueless of what places of interests it offered there however it was not difficult to discover quickly with the help of a big banner that mentioned some Korean dramas were filmed here, such as Zhu Meng and recent Emperor of the Sea. We took a bus that would bring us to the filming place and the journey was about 50 minutes.
FOC is rare in today’s world especially when it is a popular filming location. Each of us had to cough up 4,000 won to pay for entrance fee. We took about 45 minutes to cover the filming site and had to catch the public bus that would brought us back to interchange so as not to miss our bus @ 3.45 pm which we brought us back to Seoul @ Gangnam Bus Terminal. Home Sweet Home……. ^ ^.
I have been asked by a friend of mine if it is a good time to buy some American International Group (AIG) shares. Obviously, AIG had been in the papers for the wrong reasons recently.
In the papers, an article claimed a rich man had brought more than 1 million shares in AIG at US$1.50. However, that was before the US government announced her bailout plans for AIG. After the announcement, you probably knew what happened to AIG share price.
Yesterday, I was at a shop and a gentleman was advising his friends that it might be good time to buy some AIG shares now. What are your opinions? Is AIG a good buy now? I need to put on a disclaimer for the sake of my readers.

At this juncture when the financial news were painted in full bright RED, lots of people on the street will most probably suffer some sort of losses in terms monetary or increase anxiety. Of course, anxiety can be in many forms such as worrying about one’s job security, how will one meet end needs if the economy stay bad for longer than expected.
While all these events are unfolding, do you know who still get to benefit the most? Right, the CEO of the firm. They may even get a big pay cheque even when they get fired or run the firm into the history books of non-existence a.k.a bankruptcy.
I have to pity those who have put their money in DBS High Notes 5. They may not get back a single cent of their investment. So much, for the promised of annual return of about 5 per cent if it comes with a full wiped out of one’s initial investment. Any kind of investments will come with some form of risks. A experienced surgeon, who performs a simple operation with a 1% risk, will also get his patient’s to sign that the surgeon may not be at fault if the operation may turn bad and the patient’s life may be at stake. I am not here to add fuel to the fire.
Let’s offer some constructive ideas to address the issue:
Obviously, these 4 steps will not get you laughing to the bank. Remember the journey goes on even if you decide to do nothing. A start is better than never.
Recent news headlines flashed that we may be facing one of the greatest crisis after the Great Depression? What do you think? If you are affected directly or indirectly by the recent events, I wish you well. May we have a better and brighter tomorrow when this crisis goes into the history books.
