seoul photo diary

One of the christmas displays at a popular mall in Seoul. Was literally walking under a sequin canopy outdoors. It was amazing when they had the coloured lights turned on in the evening

Very cute and intricately designed cakes
Freedom in Sydney !
These look a lot nicer than they tasted. Needless to say I was quite disappointed
Hear Hear. A lovely messages left on the walls of a shopping mall in Insadong.
One of the side streets of Insadong. I love this traditional feel
The was the cutest thing ever. A favourite couple hotspot where messages are written on a lock and secured amongst many others to the railings under the Seoul tower.

Surprisingly the best fries I've ever tasted is in Seoul
Mini fishermen in a store display
The day we decided to visit the palaces and sight see we were treated with a gloomy day. However this didn't stop us from enjoying the amazing attractions of Seoul.

I had to try one of my favourite Korean dishes in Korea.. the seafood pancake. Quite satisfying !
The grounds of the Changdeokgung Palace. A place where the royal family use to live which is now a World Heritage Site.

the best things in life are not seen but felt

Up at 3am trying to finish off a report due tomorrow, but have lost the motivation to continue writing. So instead I decided to share with you guys a story I came across on Lessons Learned In Life which I found so sweet.

The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her 4 year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.
Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and said, "This is for you, Momma. 
"The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over-reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened the box and found it was empty. She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner. "Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?"
She had tears in her eyes and said, "Oh, Momma, it's not empty! I blew kisses into it until it's was full. "
The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger.
An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of her life.
Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there. 
In a very real sense, each of us, as human beings, have been given Golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and GOD. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

which black dress

(source: ASOS)
I'm attending a cocktail dinner in the next couple of weeks and not too sure which type of dress would be appropriate to wear? 
Black is always safe, so I'm sticking to that just in case. 
Though I'm not sure if I should be steering towards corporate or fancy; since it's on a work night.
Which would you pick?

1. Shift dress with fold sleeve
2. Bodycon dress with mesh drape
3. Flippy dress with folded shoulder
4. One shoulder dress with corsage
5. Cross front dress with belt
6. Pencil dress with tulip skirt
