Anyway, the cold snap and rainy weather did not stop us from attending the mass and strolling around downtown Jeonju.
Diane from Dianewantstowrite prompted me to share and link up my beautiful Sunday.
We went to Jeondong Catholic Cathedral , one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Korea. According to my husband there are three types of people who attend mass in this church. They are (1) local parishioners (2) passers-by ( yung napadaan lang tapos biglang napsimba lols) (3) tourists.
|Jeondong Catholic Church, Jeonju S. Korea. Built in honor of Roman Catholic martyrs who died on the same spot during|
the Japanese regime and Joseon dynasty.
I was not able to take pictures of the interior part of the cathedral because some parishioners were solemnly praying inside.
The mass would start at 5 p.m. We had an hour to kill time so we strolled around the park adjacent to the cathedral.
Ito ang namiss ko sa Korea, the streetfood. Above is roasted spicy octopus and below is the spicy chicken bar-b-que.
Two years ago, we could get inside this park for free. But today, we were surprised that they charge 2,000W at Jeonju National Park. So, we decided to visit the novelty shops na lang instead.
When it was quarter past four, we went back to the church on foot. After the Holy Mass , we lit candles and said our prayers.
Ay naku, dinadayo talaga to' ng mga famous K-pop artist. Last year, I could not buy because of the long queue but today since it was rainy, there were few people on the streets and some stalls are parasa na because it was also almost 8 p.m. Magpapahuli ba ako, of course not, coconut!!
According to the description on the poster ,TA-RAE is a court cake made of ripened honey and malt.This delicacy was once served to the kings and valuable guests. They were so delicious, I gobbled them down when we got home . That's why I was not able to take pictures. Anyway, here's how they looked like from the screencap I took on www.sejongfood.co.kr
That wraps up our beautiful Sunday! Now , it's your turn to share and to link Up your beautiful Sunday.
