On a recent Friday night my gal pals Geninine and Veniese whisked our flock of friends away to a fabulous cocktail bar in the French area of Seoul. One speedy cab ride was all it took to find ourselves at Liquid Soul. This trendy little spot oozes style with a sharp edge of sophistication. The huge wooden bar runs the length of the space. Bottles of every kind of alcohol imaginable are backlit and arranged in tiers along the cream brick far wall.

Meat Packing doesnít mince around with its concept, let alone itís name. Meat is exactly what they pack you with once youíve settled in for the dinner buffet. Meat Packing differs from the other steak buffets in Seoul which trend toward the Brazilian churrascaria style like Mercado and Copacabana.

Rarely would you ever see me polished, but on May 19th, 2012, I put on a black-tie, a tuxedo jacket, and slicked my hair back to celebrate the return of luxurious food brought to us by Canada. The Canada Brand and Canadian Chamber of Commerce Korea collaborated to present their first annual ĎDelicious Canadaí Gala Dinner at the Grand Hilton Seoul.

The wine buffet at the Intercontinental Coex Hotel executes a flawless victory night after night. Of course, it helps that the luxurious surroundings lend itself to an experience of debauchery and devilment.

This past week I finally managed to make it over to Vatos in Itaewon. If youíre like me then youíve probably been hearing about this place since it opened last November. Iíve meant to pop over and check out all the hype, but never found the time. That all changed when universe aligned and I had an evening free to indulge in some Mexican Korean fusion. Sounds scary, doesnít it?

Last  month I had the opportunity to see the David LaChapelle exhibition at the Seoul Arts Center in Seoul. If you know anything about his work youíll agree that his photographs leave an indelible imprint on the mind. His work boasts vivid colors and either presents strange incongruous juxtapositions or evokes the innate essence of his subjects. In a word his work is unforgettable.

Ttukeseom Station is on line 7 of the Seoul Subway Transportation System. It is one of the more unique subway stations in Seoul. First up there station doubles as a Museum. One the day I went there was a multi-media art installation installed.

Outside of my friend Viniese whose family ships her the ingredients to whip together an authentic jerk meal I didnít think Iíd experience anything close to the jerk chicken I remember having back in Negril, especially not in Seoul. However, Iím surprised and happy to say that the new restaurant Toucan in Gyeongridan does just that.

I didnít know what to expect when I heard the words South African food. I knew the country was a mish mash of cultures bound together through historical cirumstances. I just couldnít figure out what the food would be like with so many disparate ethnicities invovled.

I ate there on Sunday. I found the food too expensive to be honest, and too many flavours thrown together. I had the lamb chops, which came with sweet potato for some reason, as spinach. The lamb was very undercooked.

I do however suggest you try the springbok shot there. It's delicious!

Yeah it can get pricey. That was my major issue. I'll try the springbok in the future!

Koh Phi Phi Don is an island off the coast of Krabi in Thailand. Itís a popular getaway while in Thailand. At the pier in town the tide of tourists flows constantly, grabbing a bite, booking tours, or shopping.

This past Buddhaís birthday I really felt the need to escape the city. Which is an odd feeling since Iím definitely a city boy at heart. Sometimes though I just feel so stifled and suffocated that I have to move, move, move and get out. So when my friend Nico mentioned getting away for the weekend I immediately decided to join him. Our original plan of traveling to Ulleng-do sank when we learned all the ferries were booked through June. Undaunted we turned our sights toward Geoje Island.

Hey K-pop girls and boys who knew with all the huge acts in Korea that rapper PSY would be the one to take the world by storm? His ďGangnam StyleĒ swept the radio stations, clubs, and i-gizmos across the globe. His video scored over 50 million hits on You Tube and itís still ticking away.

Wicked in Seoul is an experience not to be missed. Iíve seen only a handful of live musicals, both on Broadway and in the West End, and Iíll put this production right alongside those. We had seats in the second balcony, for 70,000 KRW, and our view was fine. My friend Sergio did mention that the actorsí lines were sometimes inaudible.

I love my smart phone. It has become an indispensable part of my life. It's practically attached to my hand. Armed with my I-phone and an army of Apps I'm practically Superman.
