I just love snow globes!

I started my fascination with snow globes (waterglobes or snowdomes) after I watched the korean series, "My Girl". The lead actor, Seol Gong Chan (Lee Dong Wook) bought a snow globe for Joo Yoo Rin (Lee Da Hae) as a birthday gift. Yoo Rin grew up not knowing the exact date of her birthday and the only thing she remembered was that it was always snowing during her birthday. When Gong Chan and Yoo Rin got separated, Gong Chan would always buy snow globes every year every time it started snowing. When Gong Chan eventually found her again, he gave her all the snow globes he bought all those years they were apart. I thought that was so romantic.

Anyway, since I still don't have my Seol Gong Chan to buy me all those snow globes, I decided to just start collecting them. ha!ha! Not just simply buying them online or from a store...but I want to buy them every time I travel as remembrance to a particular place or country.

This one I bought when I went to Las Vegas with my family.

This one was from Disneyland @ Anaheim, California.

This one was actually from Las Vegas also when we passed by the Circus Circus Hotel.

I was supposed to buy a snow globe when we visited Universal Studios Theme Park in L.A., but my cousin said that it was too expensive. He told me I should just buy from the stores outside of the theme park. I ended up not buying any because we didn't have the time to look for one. Moral of the story: If you want something, just buy it immediately! ha!ha!

Hopefully I'll get to travel again so that I can buy more snow globes.


  1. hi! do you know where to find or were you able to find the exact snow globe that gong chan gave to yoo rin? if you did, can you tell me where to get it? thanks! i'd be very grateful! :)
