Monsoon Rainbow and Ladies Parking Spaces

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

For the past two weeks or so, it’s been monsoon hell for Korea. Sudden downpours came crashing onto us and having an umbrella is pointless. Might as well just get wet. Sometimes these downpours last hours. Sometimes they go through a ping-pong ball effect, where it stops, resumes, stops, and resumes.

During one of those ping-pong downpours, I happened to be at work, and I was privileged to see a rainbow (my second or third in Korea) and a gorgeous sunset. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera, but luckily my friend did! He took the pictures and emailed them to me.

The beautiful sunset. Until that day, I don’t remember ever seeing such an orange/pink sky like that evening!

The rainbow looks rather faint in the pictures, but you can still make it out. :D It really was breathtakingly pretty seeing it in real life!

My friend also took a picture of one of the new “Ladies Only Parking Spaces” in Seoul. Apparently these are painted pink and are only for ladies. I know there are ladies only cars on Japan’s subways, but now a ladies only parking space? *sweatdrops*

Anyway, I have another picture post planned. My trip to Namsan Tower adventure will be posted in a few days! Yes, I am on a picture post stampede of some sort. :D


  1. Ooh, lovely pictures. I love the rainbow! Gorgeous.

    Ladies Only Parking Spaces? Man, I wish those were here! Just kidding. I guess I don’t understand why there would be such a thing?

  2. Ooh pretty rainbow! I’m glad that you got a pretty sky after all the bad weather you’ve been having.

  3. Wow, that first photo is beautiful! It’s been a while since I last saw a rainbow too, especially now that it’s summer and doesn’t rain much here.

    Weird, I’ve never seen a ladies only parking spot before. I see spots for pregnant women here though.

  4. Ladies-only parking space…? Can you still park if you have one male passenger, e.g. a young son, though?
