Welcoming Ceremony of Worldwide Korea Bloggers

The WKBs were invited to a welcoming ceremony in Seoul, last March, 2012. We were invited to a ceremony held in Korean Culture and Information Service (KOCIS) Office for a brief explanation about WKB, what WKBs had done in the previous year and a symbolic certificate award to one of the bloggers.

After the official ceremony, we joined a guided tour in National Museum of Korea. We were guided by a professional tour guide who introduced us to the main items exhibited in the museum.

The museum has a huge collections about Korea and its history, but since we had only limited time, we could not see the whole collections. I think I have to go back someday to the museum. Few hours visit was not enough!

On the way to the painting class we would join in the museum, we were invited to see the souvenir shop. My eyes can't stop looking at those beautiful stuffs displayed in the shop. I wanted to buy many of them :)

 Prior to the painting activities, the art teacher explained us about the dragon we would draw later on. This year is the year of black dragon, but I painted my dragon in red, green, orange instead of black. I brought the dragon painting home and gave it to my son. He loves it!

A great video made by Steve Miller about the Welcoming Ceremony of the WKBs.

To give you a glance of what we did on the welcoming ceremony, here is a video about the event. It was a nice day to see fellow bloggers and get to know them more. Thank you for inviting me, Korea.net. I did enjoy the day!.
