Seoul - Co:lumn

The coffee drinker and I met up in Seoul for a trip a few weeks ago. We did the usual tourist thing, shopping thing but on the last day, we decided we would cafe hop! Turns out the area nearby had a few cafes so off we went to explore. 

Our first stop, because we were hungry, was Co:lumn. It is a converted warehouse in an industrial area, if that sounds like it wouldn't be easy to find, you would be right. The entrance is pretty nondescript save for a couple of boards, only the coming and going of people hinted that there was something there. 

You pay an entry fee at the door for the art gallery and that gets you a drink. This fee is mandatory if you want to eat at the restaurant/cafe. There are 2 spaces, one has the drinks bar/order counter and the other has the kitchen. Both spaces were big with high ceilings, lots of natural light and filled with art.  

We went on a Saturday so it was pretty crowded but some skilful loitering scored us a table. We ordered our drinks and food (both self service, hence the buzzer) and waited, picking up the food from the kitchen when it was ready. 

I thought the tea was a bit weak, but the food was amazing and I really enjoyed the whole experience. Definitely stay to admire the artwork, take some photos in the natural light. Perfect way to spend a slow day. 

Have you been to this space? What did you think?

Monami Livecolor DIY Markers

The coffee drinker and I were on a trip to Seoul recently and of course we went stationery shopping! We noticed that a lot of the pens were from a brand called Monami, which is a Korean stationery maker of office supplies, pens and other writing instruments. 

Most of the pens were pretty standard, but the Live Color DIY display caught my eye. It's basically a pick and mix pen system. You pick from 3 pen holders and 4 different types of pen (highlighter, marker and felt tip and ball point) in various colours to create your own double sided pen. I took a really long time to decide but it was so cheap (starts from USD0.20 for the pen holder and USD0.50 for the screw on pens) , I should've just bought it all. 

In the end, I chose highlighters for bullet journaling and the coffee drinker chose normal markers. I love that it's 2 sided because it reduces the number of pens in my kit and the colors are also pretty decent if you're into the pastel/light colors. I hope they expand it to include darker colors and more pen holder designs. 

P.S We've updated our Etsy store with new items!
