Seoul Grand Park, Seoul Zoo

Seoul Grand Park is the prison home of different types and species of animals from around the world. For the enjoyment of another animal called Human, animals were kept within a secured fence, cage, and aquarium. If you want to experience the taste of wildlife (as much as wildlife wants to have a taste of you) then Seoul Grand Park Zoo Area is the place to go.

This tiger never tires of smiling at you at the entrance.
With an entrance fee of KRW 3000 for adults, you may now have the privilege to show Mother Nature that you are at the top of the food chain (and at the bottom of the world called Hell).

Stoned animals, after rehabilitation.

There are various kinds of our fellow inhabitants and here are the images of some of them.


Elephants are not a local resident of South Korea, but Seoul Grand Park uses his connection and Gadam Money to import this magnificent animal for you to enjoy.


Giraffe 1: Damn dude so fucking hot out here. How long have you been working in Korea?

Giraffe 2: Been workin ‘ere for ten damn years, I say and still no increase of my gadam food supply.

Giraffe 1: Fuck, I should have applied in Busan Zoo instead; more water, and food supply plus they have a welfare bonus every year.

Giraffe 2: Fucking capitalists.


Philpo is a type of southeastern crocodile. His scientific name is Philippine Politician. Philpo is very good and nice especially during May and hunts its food by dancing Gangnam Style. They devour its prey leaving nothing and including the clothes you wear. This type of crocodile is the most dangerous type of crocodile because it always smiles and looks adorable leaving you clueless on what are its real intentions.

Dolphin Show

Dolphins are the second animal to view sex as an enjoyment and pastime (not just a mating ritual) next to an animal we called Humans.

But this dolphin show is no Sex Show. Here you will witness how dolphins will follow every command by its handler in exchange for a piece of sardine.

Dolphin show runs every 1:30 PM, 3:00 PM, and 5:00 PM, entrance fee is included in your ticket of the zoo.


The popular pink bird is also available in Seoul Grand Park. Flamingos rest in one foot and they are actually comfortable with that. It is like riding the Seoul Subway during the rush hours.

The Unknown Goat

I forgot to list this goat’s name, because I was intimidated by the way he looks at me. It was the feeling of uneasiness like when I enter David’s Salon for a haircut. But I did try to ask his name but he only game me that look. So I said I'm sorry goat, just continue mating those females, I wont interfere.

Orangutans Baboons

These orangutans baboons were waiting for the tourists to throw food. It was #throwfoodthursday in ape world.

Scimitar-horned Oryx

That husband was drunk, and the wifey goat is nagging about it.

Prairie Dog

I was waiting for it to pray but I failed.


Hippos cause more deaths than crocodiles according to Mang Kanor. This territorial ball of pure fat can crash your bones in seconds.


There are many types of bear. This one in the picture is called San Miguel. Other types are Budweiser, Colt 45 and Bear na Bear. Bisaya man mi, kaning ibidinsya.


Peacocks are beautiful birds. This one is actually a male, he used to dance samba, in samba festival.

This is the green variation. It is also called Green2.

I was lucky to witness a courtship ritual in peacock world. But the female is not interested in this peacock. I don't know the reason but according to mr rooster he has pea sized cock.

Seoul Grand Park is an enormous park featuring many animals, picnic grounds, hiking trails, lots of nice legs especially during summer. What are you waiting for, be eaten when the siberian tiger escapes from his cage

Mount Namsan Seoul Tower, South Korea

Mount Namsan is very special to me and my wife. This is where I proposed my never ending love to her and she accepted it without thinking twice, because she is truly, deeply, madly in love with me (she never visits this blog anyway, and the only follower of this blog is me, so no problemo!)

Seoul Tower at Mount Namsan, seoul South Korea
Namsan Tower features many sites which were designed for a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. This park is popular for lovers, young and old, because this is the place of the famous love lock.

Promises? Messages? Curse? I don't know haha
Love locks work like this:

1. You and your lover will buy a lock, one lock for each of you.


2. You will write a sweet messages, or a love promises to her/him on the lock.

3. Find a suitable place anywhere in the love lock area (love lock area is only limited to the places designated by the management)

4. After finding a suitable place, lock the two locks together symbolizing your being one. (Sex is not the only medium for being one haha)

5. Then throw the keys down the mountain and be sure to hit the gardener, just kidding. Throwing the keys symbolizes that your locks will never be unlocked ever again (except by blow torch or a caterpillar bulddozer, or severe rusting)

6. Then visit the site again after months or years to see if your locks are still in there hehe. (In our case, we never did find our locks again).


Aside from the cheesy love locks, you will also witness the Seoul Cultural Show which will feature fight exhibitions from traditional soldiers of the Korean Dynasties with different types of weapons and hear the Seoul Traditional Music and Dance. The cultural show starts at 3 PM every day. 

There is also a light show which will feature the Namsan Tower itself by twilight.

Here are the images of Namsan that you might see in case you are planning to try those cheesy lines by John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo in the movie Scorpio Nights 3, Popoy bashing Basha.
