View from Jamsil Baseball Sports Complex to Sports Complex
Korea is famous of its baseball team, especially in the Olympic Games 2008. They won the gold medal. However, they were crazy for the sports, even before that. In Malaysia, we do not play this sports, thus actually I don't have much idea how to play the sports.
We have a friend who works at LG company and his company provided some free tickets when LG play in the tournament. On 25th May, we got the chance to watch the game LG vs KIA. It's very lucky for us that LG won that game. The result was 5:4. But actually LG lose in the early stage, but because of homerun, and later they worked hard and they won the game.
Oh ya! I finally got the chance to see Home Run! But the ball didn't come to our side.
I don't know about the guy in the ticket but my friend told me he is a good player (though that night he was not the star).
The game started 6.30pm and the sun still brightly shining. I like summer.
There were already thousand over people there in the sports complex. We missed the chance to see the celebrity who started the game with either throwing or hitting a ball. We were looking for the ticket booth because we got free tickets and so we were late to enter the stadium. :(
This picture just to show you that... we sit far away from the field.
The players are so tiny, right? See from TV is clearer.
Another one is, the seats opposite of us is KIA supporters.
Our side is LG supporters.
When any of the team hit the ball, the cheerleader led the supporters to sing, to shout and the cheerleading team danced. Wow! I like the Korean supporters!
But... since I'm pregnant, I felt so exhausted easily and left earlier.

Round 6 (if I'm not mistaken)
It's getting dark but ... the cheering sound didn't stop.
They used these balloons to make sound.
Let's see some videos, not very clear, but hope you can enjoy the live performance as we were.
There were also free stuff to give away in the middle of the show, like kissing couple, lucky number, etc. The big screen showed the audience in the supporter zone randomly then they can get free gifts. It is such a good marketing way.
I got the free tickets from Korea4expats.com to have a chance to watch the doll performance - Dallae's Story. My friend and I watched it on 19th May, Wednesday.
Because of the remembrance of war, for the education purpose, this performace was held in the National Theatre of Korea from 14th May to 22th May 2010.
I like it very much because the dolls are really well made, it is sweet though the storyline is quite sad. The story was started with a happy family, performing in 4 seasons, but later on war came and everything changed. The dad died and left the mum and the child toy.
It is a non-verbal performance, and thus with the music background and puppets, toys, and the light effect, it became an amazing show. It can even help the children to know the actions of dolls - just like the animation on TV, it was originally moved by human action by action. It's not easy to move the doll by hand.
I think my baby inside of me enjoyed the show too. :)
I found a website which have the short movie of the performance. Click here.
After we watched the show, we found this mini house was shown outside the hall.
I didn't write anything in my blog since I am concentrating on... my pregnancy. I didn't take much photos like last time, but still thanks to the good handphone which I have now that I can take down some memorable photos.
The weather now is so hot... but the sky is blue and the trees are green. I like it very much.
Share with you some photos
and hope you enjoy the weather change too...
Let's go out to enjoy the sunshine (not sun burnt instead).

The clearest sky we had in May after cloudy days
1st June 2010
Hot summer arrives on the first day of June
Summer = sun!
sun = shadow!
Look down on the floor also brings amazing view!
The shadows of the trees and leaves
I even found one love-shaped shadow when I walked from my house to welfare center.
Last but not the least, green is the main color of summer!
