Stop those Sniffles!

So i guess winter is here now…thats that, no autumn, no easing into it…nothing. Its as if overnight (or rather over the course of a week) that all the cold winds and frost’s got together and had a meeting over the state of us here in South Korea, and obviously they decided it was time for something a bit more on the cooler side. So that means underfloor heating and slippers on, hot chocolate in hand, and warm coffee shops to explore!

But  just in-case you do succumb to the cold (or if you want to prevent yourself from falling victim to a snotty nose) youy can pick up these yummy Vitamin C sweety things from any pharmacy here! They are inexpensive (ranging from W2000-W6000 *$2-$5*, taste good and better yet, they’re good for you 🙂 My co-teachers even give them to the kids in place of regular sweets and candy 🙂 

The Korean word for pharmacy is 국,  and you’ll see (pronounced “yak”) usually in big, red letters on neon signs everywhere you look!



And if you do get sick, going to the doctor doesn’t have to be a stress, just click here for our earlier post on seeing a Doctor here in Korea 🙂
