Yesterday, Song-wook invited us to go to Jeonju Zoo. He is our classmate in Culture and Tourism class. Song-wook, with his friend Youngmoon, Winnie and I went to eat abundant serving of chicken at a restaurant nearby Chonbuk National University. No doubt, the food was delicious (simply because it’s a chicken!) HAHA! It was a chicken with different sauces. One was original, sweet, spicy then another with garlic.
Because it was a Wednesday when we went out together, they were wearing suits that day. In Hotel Management Department here in Jeonju University, students have to wear suits during their major classes. But, we were exempted from wearing the suits or we have a choice whether to wear suits or not in class because we were exchange students. However, i like wearing the suit. My classmates really look good in their suits (no matter how much they complain being uncomfortable wearing it) Plus, they look so fashionable. If only I have a good pair, I would also wear it in class.:P

Winnie and I and the delicous chickens.:P
So we drove our way to the Jeonju Zoo. It was very near the restaurant we went to earlier. Along the way, there were many beautiful cherry trees. HAHA. 🙂
The entrance to Jeonju Zoo 😉
We arrived there about 5:30 pm. There were a few people waiting in line. Song-wook bought the tickets for us.:) I’m really thankful to have such good friends like them. They were really nice to us. He also bought me a cotton candy. I felt like I was a little girl that day.:P

As we go inside, we saw this street full of cherry trees. It was just like what we see in korean dramas. 😛 I felt like I was shooting a drama because I was with my korean friends (the fact that im in Korea). HAHA! 😛
The cherry blossoms were very beautiful during the day, but they were more more more beautiful during the night. They opened the lights after the sun has set. The colors of the flowers changed from white, green, blue, pink, purple and red.
There were a lot of people visiting the zoo at night just to see and take pictures with the cherry blossoms. I saw how much Koreans love 벚꽃.:) I saw many couples, friends, families, and singles who were there to celebrate the season. I saw the joy in their faces. People had their cameras with them and took pictures as much as they want.
These flowers were really magical. They bring happiness to a lot of people even for a short period of time. They may come and go quickly but the memories and experiences each person had with them will last for a lifetime.
I really had so much fun that day. It was a good thing that I was comfortable with their company. They were really funny. HAHA! 🙂 And they were laughing with my simple jokes which was a good thing. We rode the viking which made me very nervous and made my heart to beat so fast!!! We were really like little kids again.
They were also my official photographers last night.:P ahaha! Without them, I wouldn’t have these photos taken with the cherry trees.
We ended the night with beautiful and lasting memories. We were lost finding our way out from the zoo.:P haha! Youngmoon drove us back to our dorm. I’m really thankful to both of them for taking good care of us. 🙂 고마워 친구들 :))
