|I crossed the road to get to the ginseng market. The young Korean lady told me it will take about 5 mins to get there.|
|해장국??? I'm not sure but it looked like 해장국 to me ㅎㅎㅎ|
|Wowww...how old are they?|
|Passed by this piece of land...|
|Continue to walk straight..|
|These are wet ginseng. I told the lady boss I wanted to cook 탕 soup using ginseng. She recommended the wet ginseng to me and I told her I will be taking the plane. She knew what I wanted and showed me the dried ginseng.|
|I was really tempted to buy these but I couldn't...|
|I bought this for mum. Hmmm..actually its also for the whole family! Hahahaa cos she will cook delicious soup for us ^^ The lady boss actually suggested that I take red ginseng but mum is used to white ginseng. Maybe I will buy red ginseng next time.|
|Ermmm...I don't understand but I guessed the "manufactured date" was 2009. Or should I call that as the date of harvest?? I don't know. Date of expiry is 2020. I paid KRW95000 for this and it contains 15 pieces of white ginseng.|
I asked 필여 for help cos her mum is an expert in this area ^^ I wanted to know if KRW95000 was reasonable a not. Her mum said it is a reasonable price if it weighs 300g. Great!
I saw this brand of ginseng in the duty free shop when I was at Incheon Airport. The weight is also 300g but I think it cost slightly more expensive. I couldn't remember the exact prices but its about USD$110 to USD$130. Perhaps its due to the size of the ginseng? The advantage of buying from the duty free shop is English translation is available on the box.
|Left the shop and walked around the place.|
|The place was so quiet. I thought it would be a very big place.|
|Waaaa...well protected from rain and shine...|
Saw this when I stepped out from the market.
