Bookmark and Share
The moment I stepped out from my office building, I heard loud music from the Cheonggye area. Being out of curiosity, I took a sneak to see what is happening. To my surprise, I saw a stage being setup as if there was a live performance. It was the Jeju Mandarin Orange festival, which aims to promote the local specialty of Jeju Island. A variety of performances and events been organized during this festival.

There was a large crowd queuing for the fruit sampling at the booths. Some booths exhibited foods with mandarin orange theme, e.g. cocktails and culinary delights. When it was not so crowded, I queued up to collect the abundant mandarin oranges that were distributed free to visitors.

There even displaying some of the world attractions made from oranges.

They actually baked the mandarin orange in the microwave. Weird but taste good.

Those were the oranges from the festival. Noticed the sizes of these oranges are smaller than the normal mandarin oranges from China. It tasted so sweet and juicy. Next to it was the goodies given out by my colleague who was going to get married, the colourful rice cake.

Alright, guess these would be my dinner…haha
