Whitenoize End of Summer Party

Another Whitenoize event is here and there are only a few days until the Summer holidays finish and everyone is back in work mode. Sarah is also leaving to head back to the US, so i couldn't miss it.

I met back up with the guys who were visiting form the US and we headed to club Answer in Cheongdam. By the time we arrived, things were already kicking off, so we decided to get a table upstairs in the VIP lounge... in Korea it never takes long to attract a few gold diggers, so a few of them arrived and we just chilled.

As the party started to heat up, we were joind by my friends and a few relatives. Three bottles of Absolut later, we were all going crazy, dancing on the sofas and tables.... it was insane! I ended up crawling out of there around 4:30am with a few friends.

Grey Goose Launch Party

The french vodka company were putting on a small event to promote themselves amongst koreans (most koreans don't drink vodka much and prefer whisky). It was held at a pop up store, Urban Lounge in Garosu-gil, Sinsa.

Garosu-gil is known as the Paris of Seoul.... it is a long road lined with trees and fashionable boutique stores, cafes and restaurants. The road is lined with luxury cars and if you are not looking very stylish, you would stand out.... a lot! To foreigners, it is alo known as Green Street (not many streets in Seoul have as many trees). This street seperates, Apgujeong and Cheongdam - the other two most classy, fashionable and expensive areas (Sinsa is the third) in Korea.

Needles to say, all cocktails and shots created with Grey Goose were free. I recently spoke to a couple of designers form the US on Couchsurfing, as they were looking for people to hang out with and just by chance they were there... so we had a great conversation and decided to meet up later in the night as i was heading off to Sarah's (my california girl from the Whitenoize parties) event at club Answer.

Korean friends from England

In Korea, people value their weekend much more simply because of the conservative approach to weekday socialising, so this Sunday I decided to meet up with my friends from school. We just walked around Gangnam, had a few drinks and something to eat. Then off to a norebang! (singing room) Nice catching up with everyone.

Went out to meet some korean relatives for drinks... nothing special happened, but we always make each other laugh.

Absolut Cheers Party

I received a call from Jade last telling me about this event at club Heaven. It was a decent night with free drinks all night. The music was pretty good too but the event closed at 1am... but then again, this is Korea and partying on a Thursday night is not very common.

Back to LUV...

So by now i have become a regular at LUV lounge in Itchywon (Itaewon). I have become well established with the owner, David and often bottle service... my partner in crime is Eric, me and Eric work together and he is happily married. But he lives in the area which means he is often out getting wasted.

On this particular night, we met Adrian, a really cool guy. Most people who know me, know that most of my friends a female, so since coming to Korea, iv been trying to make some some good male friends.... but to be fair-most of them i meet are complete dicks. Anyway, Adrian introduced me to Nara.... a smart, funny and sassy girl from Canada. I like Nara, but something disturbs me about this girl, hehe! (sorry Nara, i dont know what it is though!).
