Gangnam, Seoul Apartment Tour | Amelia Basia

hey guy it’s Emily and i’m here to film
another apartment tour for you today if you saw the one that I filmed last year on my channel that was with my old school and that apartment was
provided by my hagwon. This year, I switched schools and I got a little
bit better paying job with a housing allowance instead of the school providing the
apartment for me so this year I decided to spend my own money combined with the
housing allowance and I got this really cool apartment in Gangnam. I really like it, it’s pretty
like spacious considering how small Korean apartments usually are really small, especially
for just like one person and not a whole family so if you want to be with a Gangnam style
Apartment looks like, then keep watching so when I first walk in the door this
is where I take off my shoes and then this is the view so I’ll kind of do a quick turnaround
here for you and then i will go into more detail… starting off, since this is the first thing
you see, this is my couch and I have this huge window I’ll open it a in little bit and show you
what it looks like but i really like it it’s such a huge window and I’m really
happy that I even have the space for a couch because at my old apartment it was just one tiny room like half the
size of this room and I only had a bed and a desk and there’s this huge desk
that came with the apartment and then I have a coffee table under there it was just in the middle of the floor here
but it just kind of felt too crowded I didn’t like bumping into it so I
slid it under there and then i can pull it out if I have company over and we
want to use it to set stuff… On. I don’t know– whatever you do with coffee
tables? so this is a little cluttery, but this
is my makeup and cosmetics station and other junk area… I don’t know what you call this. the
apartment also came with this huge built-in bookshelf so I just kind of put
some stuff on it I don’t know I don’t know looks good or
not but I tried to color code it at least so maybe i’ll come up with a
better idea some other time and then there’s this
other book shelf over here that I kind of just put some junk this is a chair that I got
from ikea and then these are my winter rugs and blankets with my oven and
there’s a washer…there’s no dryer though I have to go to the basement to dry my
clothes which that in itself is pretty nice because usually there’s just no
dryer at all and you have to air dry everything i still try to air dry things
sometimes but it’s much more convenient to use the
dryer downstairs here’s my kitchen so it’s pretty much a
basic kitchen I really like this table that slides out
though and then I like how they made use of
like every space so I store like pot holders and napkins and flat things down
there and it’s a two person, well I guess you could make it a three
person table if you put a chair here but a small table that slides out and most
of the time it goes here here it’s nice and put away and then there’s a
sink with my utility (whoops.. I meant utensils) station and then I keep on like mugs and glasses in here
and then here’s where i keep a few small appliances like my coffee grinder (sorry let me focus it) there’s my coffee grinder and my blender,
coffee press, chia seeds… here’s here’s where I keep the mother
load of my iHerb shipments and I also so just have some protein powder,coffee coconut oil, and all my supplements that I
take and then some more dishes this is my baking stuff so this is like all my herbs and random
stuff This is… I like this, it’s korean jello. Can you see it there? Korean jello. this one is blood orange I guess oh no it’s 자몽 (jamong) it’s grapefruit!
and then there’s a handy little vent light up here that way if I’m cooking it doesn’t get
all steamy and then I just have my silverware here there wasn’t really a good place to put it so
I just put it on top of the microwave and then I keep pots and pans up here
and then let’s look inside my fridge so nothing exciting peas, green beans mango strawberry ice and then I don’t
really eat at home much because my school provides lunch so my church had a
thing where I baked cookies so I have some leftover dough here a ginormous thing of cream cheese that I
got from 방산 (Bangsan) market and then this is my jasmine tea that I’m obsessed with
i always keep it iced in the fridge and it’s super refreshing in the summertime
and then you know you’ve got to have that activia yogurt for the digestion
and I’m really happy that they Still have it in Korea this is where I
keep all my face masks. Isn’t this funny? so I have all these Innisfree face masks
so many down here I do like three or four a week and then
I have even more up here these are like the creamy like clay
consistency ones and then these are the sheet masks and then of course i have
soju, which actually I don’t drink too often. i bought those when i first moved in and
haven’t drank them yet and then here’s the view here’s the view from the living room
looking back into the door and my staircase this is all storage underneath the
staircase so that’s really handy I actually have like too much storage
space I could probably have a roommate if i
wanted to i might have to get rid of a few things but i would have enough room
i think it might be a little crowded and then I’ll go back to swing show you the
bathroom area also this is another like dressing area
i’ll show you I just keep like my jeans because
there’s not like an actual dresser so I keep all that good stuff in there and
then here’s my purse-or my backpack I guess I should say.. shoes and accessories and here is the
bathroom so this bathroom is really… It’s
big, I like it because it’s big, but it’s a little old style I hate the sink.
I think the sink looks really gross it’s just gotta go um but other than that it’s good like I
really like that there’s a huge shower that’s separated from the rest of the
bathroom because in a lot of Korean bathrooms, especially in one room
apartments, like what most people my age have, it’s like one whole room and everything
gets wet and it’s super annoying because I had one like that last year
and if you take a shower in the morning it takes like three hours to dry so like
if you go to the bathroom again when you need to use the bathroom after you
shower, and you’re dressed then the bottom of your pants get all wet and your
feet are wet and it’s just not good um it is handy for cleaning though
Because you can just like spray the whole thing down with bleach and just wet it
down so that’s the good part but i think i still prefer its preferred this so we’ll go upstairs now and there’s not
much up here… I literally only sleep here I should use it for something else but
there’s a nice big bed and I keep just some night masks and stuff over there I tried
to kind of keep it simple since it’s a small room but then i put a
nice chair which I’ve literally only sat in two times but it’s really nice
because you if you have the window open you get a really nice view. and I’m
actually thinking that I might move this chair over here in this empty space and
then- this is kind of a crazy idea- but I thought it would be fun to put a
hammock back here because if i put a hammock there then i have this cool view down
here here’s the living room and yeah I really
like it so it’s a good place for me um like I
said it’s a little bit expensive if you are planning on moving to korea don’t
expect your Hagwon (private school) to buy you an apartment like this especially (well I
shouldn’t say Korea, I should say Seoul) hit if you’re moving to like central
seoul at Gangnam or some place like this then don’t expect your employer to buy
you an apartment like this at least in Seoul. so if you want to see more videos like
this then please feel free to subscribe and i hope you enjoyed watching it. I’ll see you again soon. Bye!

And all I can say about this video is that I saw that kind of apartment in Korea, and I think this is a great option for one person. I really like it 🙂
So, I looking forward for your reply 🙂

하나님 예수님 성령님영생의 길

Feb 2, 2017, 3:23 pm Reply

저의 글을 읽어 봐주세요

저는 어린시절 어려운 삶의 환경으로 힘들때 지푸라기를 잡는 심정으로 하나님께 몇년에 한번
기도는 했지만 교회도 가본적 없었고 진짜 믿음도 없었던 사람입니다 그러던 중 삶에 막다른
길에서 죽음을 생각했고 그러다 살아 계신 참 하나님이신 예수님을 만났습니다 음성도 들어 봤고
영의 세계도 경험 해봤습니다 저는 막연히 기도는 했지만 이세상은 과학이 말하는 우연히(빅뱅)
생겨서 흙에서 자란 것을 먹고 다시 흙으로 돌아가는 순환과 같은 그냥 눈에 보이는 세계가 전부인줄
알고 이것이 신이라면 하나님 이겠구나,"라고 생각이 치우처 오랜 시간 살았습니다 그런데 저에게
한가지 의문이 있었고 만약 이 의문이 풀리면 진짜 하나님도 살아 계시다는 증거가될거라고 확신적으로
믿는게 있었는데 영의 세계가 진짜로 존재한다면 하나님은 영혼의 모습으로 계실거라는 생각이 의심
없이 생각에 자리잡고 있었기 때문입니다 티비나 사람들 얘기 중에 말하는 귀신이 있다면 내가
하나님이 살아 계신 것을 믿을수 있겠다 생각을 하곤 했습니다 그러다 진짜 귀신이란 존재를 경험하게
됐고 이로부터 하나님이 살아 계심을 믿게됐습니다 마음으로 진짜 믿게되니 하나님께서 예수님을 증거
하시고 성경의 말씀 또한 진짜라는 것을 이런저런 일로 경험 시켜주셨습니다 또한 기도응답도 들어
주시고 영적이 체험을 많이 경험케 해주셨습니다 지나고 보니 제가 귀신이란 악한영을 접한 것도
우연이 아니고 하나님의 말씀인 성경에서 네가 말한게 내 귀에 들린대로 네가(하나님이) 행하리라
하신 말씀대로 행하신 것을 나중에 성경을 읽어 알게됐습니다 진짜 믿음이란 자신만에 증거가 있어야
가능하다는 것을 알았고 하나님이 살아 계심과 예수님이 하나님의 아들인 것을 진짜로 믿어지면
하나님께서는 성경도 열어 주시고 눈에 보이지 않는 것들도 경험하게 해주신다는 것을 알았습니다
진실로 예수님 하나님은 살아 계십니다 또 사람은 죽으면 끝이 아닙니다, 영의 세계가 진짜로 존재합
니다 살아 계신 하나님을 찾으면 당장은 아니라도 만나 주실때가 있습니다 저의 경험상으로 그렇습니다
예수님은 길이요 진리요 생명이요 나를 통하지 않고는 하나님께 갈자가 없느니라 하셨습니다
예수님의 십자가는 죄인들을 회개시켜 구원에 이르게 하시는 능력입니다
제가 예수하나님을 만나고 보니 사람은 누구나 죄인이 아닌 사람이 없다는 것을 깨달았습니다
사람은 자기의 의로움으로 가득차 있더라도 하나님이 보시기엔 부족할 따름이란 것을 알게
됐습니다 성경을 읽어 보시면 내가 왜 죄인인줄 알게될겁니다 죄인인 것을 깨달을수 있고
참 하나님이 살아 계시다는 것을 믿을수 있다면 세분이시며 한분이신 하나님 예수님 성령님을 만나실
수 있을겁니다…
저와 같이 구체적으로 무슨 일이 내게 생기면 살아 계신 하나님을 믿겠다는 바램을 가져 보세요
당장은 아니라도 만나 주실겁니다 그러나 정욕과 욕심으로 기도하고 바라는 것은 응답이 없을수

나를 간절히 찾는 사람이 나를 만날 것이니라 (잠언 8:17)
찾으라 구하라 두드리라…. 성령(하나님의 영이 내게 임하심)을 주시리라 (누가복음 11:9~13)

밑에 영상은 저와 비슷한 예수님을 만난 체험담과 도움이되는 내용입니다
시청해 보셨으면 좋겠습니다








할렐루야 살아 계신 예수님 하나님 성령님을 찬양합니다 아멘
구원 하심이 보좌에 앉으신 우리 하나님과 어린양께 있습니다
